Hunter EZDS Decoder System Module
Cost and complexity have often limited decoder technology to higher-end systems. However, with the revolutionary EZ Decoder System (EZDS), you get all the advantages of two-wire installations with simpler, more cost-effective technology — so you can bring the power of two-wire control to more projects than ever before.
EZDS is compatible with all the features of our Hydrawise™-enabled HCC controller, as well as the ICC2 controller and its web-based Centralus™ management platform. Plug in the EZ-DM two-wire output module to enable up to 54 stations of irrigation, plus a master valve, on a single pair of wires. Then simply place EZ Decoders at each valve!
EZ Decoders are small, waterproof, and come with color-coded wiring and a convenient LED status light. They do not require special wire or connectors to function. Better yet, the system can coexist with conventional output modules, allowing hybrid functionality of both direct-wired valves and decoder operations in the same controller. This technology also permits easy conversion of a conventionally wired system to two-wire using the existing wiring bundle. It’s that easy!
