CONNECTING THE BATTERY
To Install the Battery
The SVC uses a standard 9-volt alkaline battery (not
included) to operate the valve and program the controller.
Under normal conditions the battery should provide at least
one full year of service. Use of a 9-volt lithium battery will
extend the service life of the SVC between battery changes
(approximately 3 years).
2. Snap the battery into the battery holder (use a high
quality 9 volt akaline battery).
NOTE: The SVC has non-volatile memory
which allows for the battery to be removed
without losing any program information.
4
1. Unscrew the rear half of the SVC body to gain access to
the battery compartment.
NOTE: The battery holder is designed so that
the battery can only be inserted one way.
3. Make sure no water is inside the battery compartment.
Screw the SVC body halves together to seal the
compartment.
ENG
ATTACHING SOLENOIDS
The SVC-100 is provided with a solenoid attached to
the controller. The SVC-200 and SVC-400 multi-station
controllers will operate up to 2 or 4 solenoids, respectively.
Hunter DC solenoids (P/N 458200) can easily be installed
on all Hunter Plastic Valves. For the SVC-200 & SVC-400,
solenoids must be ordered separately.
To Wire DC Solenoids to the SVC
1. Attach the black leads from each solenoid to the single
common wire (black lead) coming from the SVC. Secure
all wire connections with waterproof connectors.
2. Attach one red wire from each solenoid to the corresponding station wire (red lead) from the SVC. The
station numbers are identified on the face of the SVC.
Secure all wire connections with waterproof connectors.
NOTE: Must use DC Latching Solenoids.
24VAC Solenoids will not operate with
the SVC.
Common Wire (Black Leads)
NOTE: The maximum wire distance between
the solenoid and SVC is 100 feet (18 gauge
minimum wire size).
The SVC can also operate non-Hunter DC latching solenoids. Below is a list of SVC compatible solenoids.

MOUNTING THE SVC
The SVC can easily be mounted on any Hunter plastic valve.
A specially designed valve mounting clip makes installation
a snap. A protective rubber cover is provided to prevent dirt
from accumulating on the face of the SVC.
To Mount the SVC to a Valve (Figure 1)
1. Unscrew the existing solenoid from the valve.
2. Screw the Hunter DC latching solenoid (P/N 458200)
into the valve bonnet.
3. Attach the large end of the valve mounting clip to the
middle of the SVC body.
4. Snap the small end of the valve mounting clip to
the solenoid.
Along with the universal mounting clip, a mounting adapter
is also provided with the SVC. This mounting adapter
allows for alternate methods of mounting the controller
either to the side of the valve box or stake mounted within
the valve box.
Valve Box Mounting Method (Figure 2)
1. Position the universal mounting adapter on the side of
the valve box. Make sure that the bracket is positioned
so that the controller will not interfere with the valve
box cover when closed.
2. Drive two screws to secure the adapter to the side of
the valve box.
3. Attach the SVC to the mounting clip and slide it on the
end of the mounting adapter.

System Off icon
, “OFF” and
on
the display.
1. Cut the yellow wire loop attached to the SVC at approximately the middle of the loop.
2. Remove approximately ½" (13mm) of insulation from
each wire. Attach one yellow wire to each of the wires
of the weather sensor. You can mount the rain sensor
up to 100 feet from the SVC controller (18 GA minimum
wire size).
3. Secure wire connections with waterproof
connectors.

same start time, they will operate together (they must also
be programmed with the same water day). For example,
if Station 1 and 2 both have been programmed with start
times of 8:00 am, they will both turn on and run at the
same time.
The SVC allows for start time stacking which is helpful
when system capacity is not adequate to support the operation of multiple valves at the same time. Let's assume a
scenario in which Station 1 is programmed to start at 8:00
AM and run for 15 minutes, and Station 2 is programmed to
start at 8:10 AM and run for 15 minutes. Station 1 watering
run time overlaps Station 2 start time. The SVC will wait
until Station 1 completes watering until it starts Station 2.
In this scenario, Station 2 will start at 8:15 am.
System Off
The controller will water the next Start Time and will then
water at the interval programmed.
This function permits the user to shut the system off for an
indefinite period of time.
