Installation and Getting Started Guide
Selecting the Controller Installation Site
The Eagle Plus controller in wall-mount cabinet is designed for indoor or outdoor environments, whereas pedestalmount models are specifically designed for outdoor installation. Regardless of the enclosure type, selecting an
installation site that provides user accessibility as well as basic protection from extreme hot or cold environments is
considered good installation practice. At minimum, the installation site should provide the following:
• Protection from direct exposure to irrigation spray, midday sun, and snow accumulation
• Access to all required wiring connections
• Access to a dedicated, single-phase AC power source.
Installing the Wall-mount Enclosure Controller (See Page. 2 for Pedestal-mount Controller Installation)
1. Unlock and open the cabinet door, then open the hinged control
panel. Position the controller on the wall at eye level, and mark
the top and bottom mounting screw locations. See Figure 1.

Connecting an Earth Ground
IMPORTANT: The provided surge protection components cannot properly function unless a low-resistance
connection to earth ground is provided. It is the responsibility of the installer to connect the Eagle Plus controller to
earth ground in compliance with all applicable NEC and local electrical codes.
Note: The grounding method described below utilizes a copper-clad ground rod electrode. Due to variables in soil composition
and terrain, additional and/or alternate ground electrode types may be required to achieve the required maximum resistance of
10 ohms. Contact a local Irritrol distributor for grounding methods recommended for the specific installation site.
1. Drive a 5/8” by 10’ (17mm x 3m) copper-clad steel rod
Figure 6
into well-moistened soil, not less than 8’ (2.5 m) or
more than 12’ (3.7 m) from the controller. The top of
the ground rod should be buried approximately 12”
(30.5cm) below grade.
2. Route a 6 AWG (13,0mm2) solid copper wire connected
to the earth ground device into the controller cabinet
through the access hole provided below the copper
ground lug. Insert and secure the copper wire to the
ground lug. See Figure 4.
Valve Box
Ground Lug
Note: To provide the most efficient path to earth ground,
route the ground wire between the ground rod and
controller with the least amount of bending possible.
There should be no tight radius bends, nicks or deep
scratches on the entire length of the wire.
Valve Box
12”
(30,5cm
3. For optimum connectivity, secure the ground wire
to the ground rod using a Cad-WeldTM (or equivalent)
metal-fusion connection method.
4. Using an earth-ground resistance tester; i.e., Meggor®
or equivalent, confirm the resistance reading between
the controller and ground rod is 10 ohms or less.
Note: Contact your local Irritrol distributor for assistance
in obtaining the earth ground-resistance test device.
Periodically retest the earth ground connection to
confirm thar resistance remains at 10 ohms or less.

Connecting Field Wiring
Caution: The Eagle Plus transformer is rated at 24 VAC, 50 VA. The controller can be programmed to operate up
to 8 programs concurrently (one station per program), in addition to a master valve, and a pump relay – totaling 10
concurrent field output loads.* Each station output terminal is rated 24 VAC, 0.5A (max.) @ 77°F (25°C), and capable
of operating more than one valve solenoid (typically 2 or 3).* Ensure the current load on any output does not exceed
0.5A, and the total current load imposed on the controller does not exceed 1.5A. The controller will automatically
detect excessive current load and generate the appropriate alarm(s).
*The irrigation system hydraulic capacity must be also be capable of maintaining adequate volume and pressure for all
automatic and manual watering operations.

Connecting Station Valves and Master Valve
The Eagle Plus features direct-insertion, quick-release wire
terminals for all low-voltage wire connections. Each field
output terminal accepts a 14–18 AWG (2,08mm2 – 0,823mm2)
solid-core wire in each of two connection ports – enabling
two field wires to be connected independently to one terminal position.
• For positive wire retention, remove insolation to expose
1/2 –5/8” (13–17mm) bare copper wire.
• After insertion into terminal block, pull lightly on each wire
to confirm positive retention. To release, depress the small
tab (nearest the wire) using a small blade screwdriver.
• Use waterproof connectors on all field wire splices to
prevent corrosion and possible short circuit.
• Ensure all exposed wiring inside the controller is taped back
and properly insulated.
1. Route a separate control wire from each station output
terminal and the Master Valve terminal (if applicable) to
the corresponding valve location. Using a waterproof wire
splice connector, attach the control wire to either valve
solenoid lead. See Figure 5.
2. Route field common wire(s) from the controller’s multiple
COM terminals as required to interconnect the remaining
lead of each valve solenoid to the field common circuit.
Note: To assist in identifying field wire connections using
24 VAC, see Identifying Field Wire Connections on page 7.

Two-wire Decoder System Specifications
Decoder Cable:
Note: Rain Master communication cable, TW-CAB-14, is recommended. Twisted-pair, polyethylene-jacketed communication
cable, and PVC-insulated, single-core “irrigation” wire is not proven to be reliable for Rain Master decoder system application,
and is NOT recommended.
•Two-conductor, 14-gauge, solid-core copper wire, double-jacketed insulation manufactured of high-density, sunlightresistant polyethylene or UF-B UL PVC with a minimum wall thickness of 060” (1.5mm). A protective outer sheath must
be manufactured of polyethylene or PVC material conforming to ICEA S-GL-402 or NEMA WC5, with
a minimum wall thickness of .045” (1,2mm) and approved for direct burial installation.
•All wire insulation and conductors must be fully intact and free of nicks or cuts.
•A minimum wire size of 14-gauge (2mm2) is required for straight-line cable installation; i.e., wire distance to the furthest
decoder not on a loop.
Decoder Cable Configuration
To provide the optimum power and communication for system operation, the recommended wire path configuration is
a continuous loop beginning and ending at the controller, and is often routed generally following the main water lines.
The loop configuration provides a redundant path for decoder operation, allowing the system to continue operation
even in the event of a damaged cable.
Other supported decoder cable path configurations include: straight line, looped, star, or a combination of these
methods. Separate branch paths can be tapped from the main loop, and are not required to feed back to the main trunk
line. A branch path can be configured as a loop, a star, or a single line. The Rain Master decoder system will function with
most wiring configurations when the correct wire type, size, and length of run are within specification.
FCC Rules - Electromagnetic Compatibility
•Lightning surge arrestors must be installed along the cable path every 600’ (183m).
•All field wire connections and splices must be made completely watertight.
This equipment generates and uses radio frequency energy and if not installed and used properly, that is, in strict
accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, may cause interference to radio and television reception. It has been
type tested and found to comply with the limits for a FCC Class B computing device in accordance with the specifications
in Subpart J of Part 15 of FCC Rules, which are designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference in a
residential installation. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off
and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
•Reorient the receiving antenna.
•Relocate the irrigation controller with respect to the receiver.
•Move the irrigation controller away from the receiver.
•Plug the irrigation controller into a different outlet so the irrigation controller and receiver are on different branch circuits.
If necessary, the user should consult the dealer or an experienced radio/television technician for additional suggestions. The
user may find the following booklet prepared by the Federal Communications Commission helpful:
“How to Identify and Resolve Radio-TV Interference Problems”. This booklet is available from the U.S. Government Printing
Office, Washington, DC 20402. Stock No. 004-000-00345-4.
