Programming for Automatic Operation
The Eagle Plus enables you to define up to 8 automatic programs for a
conventional control system, or up to 16 programs for a decoder system.
A program is comprised of the following three primary operating parameters
that must be established to create a valid program:
• An active day schedule
• A program start time
• A station run time.
The operating options selected within the various Setup menus are applied to
the programs to further define and regulate controller operations.
IMPORTANT: A program becomes valid only after all three primary
operating parameters have been entered. Once a valid program is entered,
all user-defined program values will remain intact. Failing to enter all three
parameters correctly, or prior to the display timing-out, will invalidate that
program. It is recommended to always confirm the valid program status
whenever creating or modifying programs.

established program cycle time can be easily increased or decreased by a percentage factor from 0%–300%, in 1% increments. The run time for each station
assigned to the program will be modified by the percentage change.
IMPORTANT: Increasing the program cycle duration can result in a conflict
with other scheduled watering programs and/or the defined Water Window
duration. The recommended method of increasing run time by percentage
is to make small, incremental changes while monitoring the results over a
period of time.

Manual Watering Operations
The Eagle Plus features a full complement of manual control options enabling
the irrigation system to be operated whenever and however supplemental
watering is preferred.
The manual control options enable you to operate the system by:
•STATION – Operate an individual station for a specified run time.
•PROGRAM – Operate specified watering program(s).
• MULTI-STATION – Operate up to six stations simultaneously for a specified run
time.
• TEST – Operate a specified group of stations in numeric sequence for a
specified run time.
Note: When stations or programs are selected for manual operation, the controller
determines if there is an association with the Master Valve and/or Pump output.
If an association exists with any selected station or program, the Master Valve and/
or Pump output will be activated during the manual operation. In Multi-Station
manual mode, the Master Valve and/or Pump output can be selected independently
as preferred.

Alarms Feature
The Alarms feature provides important, timely information regarding a condition
or event that requires user attention. Whenever one or more alarm conditions
occur, the Alarm LED indicator illuminates and is accompanied by a brief
description of the root cause. An optional “chirp” tone can be enabled that will
sound once every six seconds until the alarm notices have been cleared. Clearing
alarm notices is important since a pending alarm condition may affect future
automatic irrigation.
IMPORTANT: Depending on the cause of the alarm, clearing the alarm
notification does not necessarily resolve or eliminate the root cause.
