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-whitestripe) 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-withwhite-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.

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
external connection wire to be spliced with ICMR.
Take care not to score copper conductors.
3. Connect ICMR (white) wire to input source
connection for relay.
4. Based on application, connect either or both ICMR
outputs, ICMR (red-with-white-stripe) RELAY N/C
10
ICMR Installation Guide
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-with-white-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).

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 device class.
General purpose electrical outputs might be used
to control landscape lighting, water features, or
14
ICMR Installation Guide
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:
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):
16
ICMR Installation Guide
3. Create a new station in the selected area by
clicking the + toobar button. The empty new
station entry is shown below:
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.
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:
ICMR Installation Guide
17
In this case, the program is set to run-time 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
ICMR Installation Guide
19
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.
Open FloManager:
3. Determine the correct hydraulic location for the
booster pump and add the pump. A simple
example is shown below:
4. Open Branch Properties for the booster pump by
selecting the booster pump, right-clicking, and
choosing Properties:
20
ICMR Installation Guide
5. Associate the booster pump station, 19M2, to the
booster pump by clicking the
ICMR Installation Guide
button:
21
6. Choose the booster pump station using the
Course, Hole, and Station controls:
7. Attach the Booster Pump attribute to the ICMR
station in Station Detail as shown below, after
scrolling the Station Detail columns to the left:
8. Close Station Detail. Now that the Booster Pump
attribute is set, any FloZone irrigation in the
hydraulic diagram under the booster pump will
22

activate the booster pump station. The Booster
Pump attribute ignores flow and electrical limits
assigned to normal stations for the booster pump
station itself.
