  • The Rain8net is a modular 8-zone sprinkler controller module that can be controlled over the Internet by any computer. It is capable of driving standard 24VAC irrigation valves directly. Additional modules may be daisy chained to provide control and 24 VAC power to as many as 2,040 irrigation zones from a single COM or USB port.

    There is a single RS232 connection between the controlling computer and the "master" Rain8. The distance between the computer and the controller is up to 1000 feet and requires only 3 wires: TX, RX, and GND. The 24 VAC power and network communications are transferred from master to slave-to-slave, etc.

    The network connection for the slave units is an 8-conductor RF45. Each slave has a pair of these modular jacks to pass on data and power to the next one in a daisy chain. Each slave also has aRS232 connection that is used only to assign the address during the initial configuration.

    NOTE: The Rain8net requires a computer (or other automation device) running to control all scheduled irrigation.
