3. BACK-UP BATTERY INSTALLATION
5. CONNECTING A MASTER VALVE OR PUMP START RELAY
Rotate the battery compartment cover handle to the 11 o’clock position to remove the cover (see
drawing). Install one 9-volt alkaline battery into terminal clip and insert into battery compartment
and replace the cover. The controller display elements will briefly appear. When the
display blinks "12:00", the controller is ready to program.
IMPORTANT: To replace the battery compartment cover, insert it
with the handle in the “11” o’clock position to avoid possible
cover guide pin breakage.
The battery is intended for irrigation program backup only. During
electrical outages the program will not be erased, however, valves
will not operate.
Mount the controller 10 to 15 feet away from the pump start relay and the pump.
NOTE: To operate a pump, a pump start relay must be used.
Connect either wire from pump srart relay to controller terminal “M”, connect other wire to the “C”
(common) terminal.
Do not connect controller directly to pump start, it can damage the controller.
Connecting the controller to a pump is to be performed by a qualified electrician only.
4. CONNECTING VALVES AND TRANSFORMER
An interrupt type normally open rain sensor can be connected to the controller. The sensor connects
directly to the controller sensor terminals.
Connect either wire from sensor to the two sensor terminals on the controller (see figure 1). Follow
sensor manufacturer's instructions for calibrating the sensor.

1. Install control wire between valve location and controller
2. At the valve, connect a common wire to either solenoid wire of all valves. Connect a separate
wire to remaining wire of each valve using waterproof wire splice connections.
3. Remove cover from controller to access the terminal strip area.
4. Connect valves common wire to “C” (common) and individual valve wire to appropriate valve #
on the controller terminal (see Figure 1).
5. Insert transformer wire through the hole in the bottom of the controller and connect the wire to
the two screws marked “AC”. (Polarity does not matter.)
Do not plug transformer into power source until the controller is mounted.

11. SELECTING WATERING DAYS
This setting determines which days the controller will operate. Choose either A. Watering according
to the days of the week, B. One time irrigation only and cyclical irrigation from 1 day to 30 days or
for a shorter cycle, propagation mode, from 1 minute, and up to 23 hours on model 5006-IP only.
Press
until
appears. Press , a blinking arrow appears at the top of the display, under
Monday. At this stage you can set one of two options:
a) Watering according to the days of the week,
b) One time only watering or cyclical watering.

13. IRRIGATION WINDOW IN THE CYCLICAL PROGRAM
This option is an advanced feature available only on Model 5006-IP which enables cyclical irrigation
program operations (see Section B, above) to take place only during a defined part of the day
(window). The irrigation window is defined as a part of a day (up to 23 hours), in the cyclical
irrigation mode only.
This function is useful when irrigation is only required during the hot hours of the day. For example,
open window 9 am, closed window 4 pm.

the valve start time. The number of day(s) to delay option
will appear on the display to the right of the irrigation start
time above the word “days”.
In this feature 0 days = program starts today; where
1 = program starts tomorrow, etc. (up to 30 days delay).
Start time delay feature not available in specific days mode.

Press
until
appears, when no icon is blinking on the
display, Press and hold down
for 5 seconds. Valve
number 1 will open and operate for the programmed time.

Important: Budget feature cannot be assigned to an individual valve. Budget will effect all
stations equally.
22. VALVE IS IN STANDBY MODE (WAIT)
19. “RAIN OFF” (SHUTDOWN)
When two valves are currently open, and a third valve is
scheduled to open, the third valve enters wait mode. A
blinking
appears above the number of the waiting valve.
When one of the first two valves closes, the waiting valve
opens. During "manual" operation of a waiting valve via the
irrigation controller,
appears on the display, and the
valve will open the moment another valve closes.
This option is used to temporarily suspend the controller
operation. The irrigation schedule remains stored in the
controller memory, but is not implemented until the
suspension is canceled. The suspension option disables all
the valves connected to the controller.
In the current time mode, press & hold the
button until
the rain-off icon
appears in the lower right corner of the display. To resume automatic
operation, repeat the process – the icon will disappear.
20. SENSOR OPERATION (5006-IP ONLY)
This option is used to add selection of sensors such as
temperature and humidity sensors
1. Select the valve to which the sensor is to be associated.
2. Press
until
appears next to SENSOR.
3. Press
to activate the sensor in the irrigation program
for the selected valve. The word "ON" appears.
* With the sensor circuit closed (i.e., the sensor detects the
existence of a defined program lockout condition) the
symbol blinks on the display. In this situation, irrigation will
not take place through valves associated with the sensor.
4. Press
to disable the sensor. The word “OFF” appears
on the display.
21. VALVE IN OPERATION
The
23. NO POWER
If for any reason, the controller does not receive electricity, a
blinking
is displayed, indicating that the controller is not
connected to the mains. The display of the icon is powered
by the backup battery. The message AC OFF appears on a
manual display when the irrigation controller attempts to
execute an irrigation program or "manual" irrigation
program performed via it, but does not receive voltage
supply from the electrical mains.
The controller can be programmed in this state (no AC
voltage), but valves cannot be opened.
24. VALVE IN SHORT MODE
In the event of a short circuit in a valve or one of its
connections, an
appears above the valve number and
blinks every half a second (as distinguished from the Valve
Wait mode described in Section 20). To check if the valve is
indeed shorted, select the blinking valve on a "manual"
screen (see Section 15).
If the valve is shorted, the word
is displayed.
25. WEAK BACKUP BATTERY
icon will appear over the valve in operation. If the
flashes, the valve has not opened, the possibilities
are:
• The valve is in standby mode (WAIT).
icon will flash
once every two seconds (30 times every minute).
When the battery is low, a
icon will appear on the
display.
If the controller is not connected to the mains supply, the
action of replacing the battery must be completed within
30 seconds to retain the programmed data.
• Valve is in “short mode”. The
icon will flash once
every 1/2 second (120 times every minute).

During “manual” irrigation system operation via the
irrigation controller, “no prog” appears on the display,
meaning that no irrigation period has been set for the
current valve. In this case, the irrigation controller “does not
know” when to close the valve.
In this situation valve opening is disabled.
