The Sentinel Controller has a two‐line LCD for display of information. When you first walk up to your Sentinel controller, the display should be in its standard mode showing current time, day, week (of schedule), actual flow (if anything running) and expected flow. This display should look something like the following: Default Display Upper Line Lower Line Actual Flow – 00000 (0 GPM) Time – 07:18 P (7:18 PM) Expected Flow – 00000 (0 GPM) Day – MO (Monday) Flow Status – No current flow Week (of schedule) – W1 (Week 1) Sensor – No current sensor indication indicator Alarm Status – A (Alarm Exists) Remote – L (Locked) The standard indicators in the display are as follows: TIME HH:MM Hours : Minutes (12‐hour format) A or P AM or PM DAY SU, MO, Two‐letter Designation of Day of Week TU, WE, TH, FR, SA, or SU WEEK W1 to W6 Week 1 (one) of Schedule up to Week 6 (six) of Schedule SENSOR 1 Sensor Activated ‐ Switch sensor is in alternate of its Normal condition. E.g. If Normally Open, then 1 = Sensor Closed. O Dry contact (switch) sensor is Open C Dry contact (switch) sensor is Closed REMOTE L Field Unit is in remote “Locked” mode. Hand held radio will not activate watering functions within this unit. A Field Unit is programmed for “All Call” handheld radio operation. Controller will respond to any and all handheld commands transmitted. S Field Unit is programmed for “Secure” handheld radio operation. Controller will respond only to handheld commands addressed to its unit code. ACTUAL FLOW 00000 5‐digit numeric indicator of current flow through connected flow sensor EXPECTED 00000 5‐digit numeric indicator of expected flow based on current stations FLOW operating and their expected flows. FLOW STATUS + Actual > Expected (Overflow) ‐‐ Actual < Expected (Underflow) :) Actual = Expected (Flow is happy) A Flow Alarm Exists ALARM STATUS A Alarm Exists – Blank Otherwise SENTINEL SATELLITE QUICK REFERENCE Page 3 /8 PROGRAMMING OVERVIEW
