Junior DC Junior DC

Junior™ DC Series


1 and 4 Stations Residential Outdoor/Indoor

When AC power is a problem, the JUNIOR DC battery-operated controllers are the solution! Whether for temporary operations like irrigation system wire repairs or permanent applications where AC power to the valves is expensive or impractical, the JUNIOR DC controllers can handle the job. And because valve boxes occasionally flood, these valve-mounted controllers are waterproof! For water savings, JUNIOR DC controllers are compatible with wired rain sensors.
