Connect IC SystemTM Field Wiring
1. The ICMR device should arrive from the
factory with wire ends stripped. If not,
strip approximately 1” of insulation from
each wire. Take care not to score the
copper strands.
2. Strip approximately 1” of insulation from
each MAXI® wire (IC SystemTM field
wiring) to be spliced with ICMR. Take
care not to score copper conductor.
3. Connect the ICMR (red) wire to the
MAXI® (red) wire. Do not connect the
ICMR (red-with-white-stripe) wire at this
step. The ICMR-MAXI® connection
should be solid red.
4. Connect the ICMR (black) wire to the
MAXI® (black) wire. Do not connect the
ICMR (black-with-white-stripe) wire at
this step. The ICMR-MAXI® connection
should be solid black.
5. Add suitable protection to the splices.
For installation in a valve box, use a
Rain Bird DBRY splice kit for each
splice, securing the splice with the wire
nut then inserting the splice completely
into the grease cap. Note that grease
caps are single-use; do not attempt to
reuse them.

ICMR Installation Guide
Connect Relay Source and Output
The ICMR device switches an input voltage, connected to the ICMR (white) RELAY
COMMON wire based on IC SystemTM commands received from the central control PC.
When the ICMR station is OFF, RELAY COMMON is connected to the ICMR (red-withwhite-stripe) RELAY N/C (NORMALLY CLOSED) output wire. When the ICMR station is
ON, RELAY COMMON is connected to the ICMR (black-with-white-stripe) RELAY N/O
(NORMALLY OPEN) output wire.
NOTE: During installation of the
ICMR device and prior to powering
on the IC SystemTM wire path,
RELAY COMMON may be
connected internally to either RELAY
N/C or RELAY N/O. If an external
source voltage is applied to RELAY
COMMON, it will be presented to
either RELAY N/C or RELAY N/O.
After the IC SystemTM wire path has
been powered for two (2) minutes,
the ICMR will be placed in the OFF
state, with RELAY COMMON
connected internally to RELAY N/C.
Take care against touching any
ICMR wires when any inputs or
outputs are connected to live signals.
Isolate the ICMR before
installation or service.
.
CAUTION: All electrical wiring
connections and wiring runs must be
made according to local building
codes.

The drawing below shows a typical ICMR application for booster pump control. The
RELAY COMMON input is connected to a suitable control voltage for the pump starter
coil (or a suitable voltage for a pump start relay). This is typically a low-voltage source,
rather than wall power, for safety. The RELAY N/O output is used. When the ICMR is
OFF, the output is not energized keeping the pump/pump relay OFF, also. When the
ICMR is ON, the control voltage from RELAY COMMON is connected to RELAY N/O
and to the pump coil or pump start relay, triggering the pump.

ICMR Installation Guide
4. Based on application, connect either or
both ICMR outputs, ICMR (red-withwhite-stripe) RELAY N/C and ICMR
(black-with-white-stripe) RELAY N/O to
appropriate field wiring.
5. Add suitable protection to the splices.
For installation in a valve box, use a
Rain Bird DBRY splice kit for each
splice, securing the splice with the wire
nut then inserting the splice completely
into the grease cap. Note that grease
caps are single-use; do not attempt to
reuse them. In all cases follow local
electrical codes.
Safely Terminate Any Unused Relay Connections
1. If either ICMR output, ICMR (red-withwhite-stripe) RELAY N/C or ICMR
(black-with-white-stripe) RELAY N/O, is
unused in application, make sure to
isolate the unused wire using a Rain
Bird DBRY splice kit. Secure the
stripped wire end in the wire nut and
insert the assembly completely into the
grease cap. Note that grease caps are
single-use; do not attempt to reuse
them. In all cases follow local electrical
codes.

Complete Installation
1. Double-check safety of all connections.
Assure that all electrical codes have
been followed and that no exposed wire
ends are present. Take particular care
with the RELAY N/C and RELAY N/O
connections, as these will be live when
the ICMR is OFF or ON.
2. Assure that ICMR and the connections
are suitably protected from surrounding
environment.
3. Note the ICMR address from the
barcode label (or use the tear-off copy
of the label) for entry into Rain Bird
central control software.
4. Apply power to the IC SystemTM wire
path. Allow two (2) minutes for all IC
SystemTM devices on the wire path to
power-up before performing operations.
After two (2) minutes, the ICMR will be
in the OFF state, with RELAY
COMMON connected internally to
RELAY N/C.
5. Apply external signal to RELAY
COMMON (RELAY N/C will immediately
be exposed to this signal also as the
relay is OFF).
12
ICMR Installation Guide
Configure Rain Bird Central Control Software
1. Launch Rain Bird Central Control
software and select System Settings to
check ICI configuration:
ICMR Installation Guide
13
2. Verify that the System Settings dialog
box shows a configured ICI interface (as
shown below; the port number and box
number are not critical but the ICI
should be selected with a checkmark
and the port should not be “Demo”):
If no ICI is configured, refer to the IC
SystemTM Installation instructions to
complete this step.
3. There are two classes of relay controls
you may wish to add to Rain Bird central
control: general purpose electrical
outputs and booster pump controls.
Separate sections below describe
configuration and operation of each
14
ICMR Installation Guide
device class.
General purpose electrical outputs might
be used to control landscape lighting,
water features, or other time and/or
manually controlled electrical devices.
Booster pump outputs are used to
supply water to a section of the
hydraulic system under Flow Manager
control in response to irrigation
requirements.
4. Apply external signal to RELAY
COMMON (RELAY N/C will immediately
be exposed to this signal also as the
relay is OFF).
ICMR Installation Guide
15
Configure General-Purpose Electrical Outputs
1. General purpose electrical outputs are
configured identically to normal irrigation
stations. Rain Bird recommends,
however, that electrical stations be
separated from hydraulic stations
simplifying flow management in which
electrical devices do not participate.
To create a new general-purpose
electrical output station, select Station
Detail:
16
ICMR Installation Guide
2. In the Station Detail window shown
below, select the Course, Hole and Area
used for general purpose electrical
devices in your system (the example
shows Miscellaneous area used for
such devices):
3. Create a new station in the selected
area by clicking the + toobar button. The
empty new station entry is shown below:
ICMR Installation Guide
17
4. Select the ICI wire path where the ICMR
is connected and enter the ICMR
address noted from the barcode label. In
the example below, the ICMR is
connected to wire path 1 and its address
is 0B156E:
5. Close the Station Detail window after
adding the ICMR device to establish
connection with the device and prepare
for operation. This step matches adding
a new ICM station to the system.
18
ICMR Installation Guide
6. Once the station connection is
completed, the new general purpose
station can be used referring to its
identifier, 19M1 in the example, in a
program or in manual operations. The
example program below shows a “Water
Feature” program controlling an ICMR
set to enable the water feature during
open hours for the club:
In this case, the program is set to runtime of 361 minutes, six hours, running
twice during the day for a total of twelve
hours. Note that in actual operation, run
time or start time should be adjusted to
avoid a glitch between the first and
second scheduled runs, as shown.
When the station switches ON, relay

connection will be made between
RELAY COMMON (white) and RELAY
N/O (black/white). This wire would be
connected to the water feature power
input or control relay.

ICMR Installation Guide
Configure Booster Pump Control
1. Booster pump control stations are
created using the same steps as
general purpose electrical outputs.
Follow steps 1 thought 5 in section
Configure General-Purpose Electrical
Outputs above creating a new station,
19M2, referencing the ICMR for booster
pump control.
2. The next step in configuring booster
pump control is creating a booster pump
station properly positioned in the
FloManager hydraulic diagram.
