Spend less time watering your lawn and more time enjoying it! With the Orbit Battery Operated Sprinkler Timer with 1” FTP valve keeping your lawn hydrated and beautiful won’t be a full-time job! The new full-featured isolation timer/valve combo provides up to a year of automatic operation on one set of standard batteries. Installation is simple and the timer utilizes Orbit Easy-Set programming logic. As the name suggests, this valve is completely functional off DC battery operated current. So if you have a sprinkler box without a power outlet nearby, this is the perfect timer.
For most of our customers, sprinkler setup is fairly normal. But some find themselves in unique situations where traditional irrigation timers don’t work without a lot of extra expense and hassle.
Thus the Orbit battery-operated timer was born. This unique timer tackles the problems of distance or wiring restrictions while remaining a fully functional, two-program, four-station timer. This timer carries some unique attributes that set it apart.
You can detach the timer from the valve, so you can program it from anywhere, then just simply reattach it to the valve, and you’re all set.
The Orbit Battery Operated Sprinkler Timer brings all the programming features of Orbit’s traditional timer lineup. Nothing is left out.
The timer contains two programs (A and B) for one to four stations. Each station includes up to four start times a day, for a total of eight start times, and can be run for anywhere between 1-240 minutes. Programming frequencies can be days per week (Mon-Sun), Odd/Even, or interval (between 1-30 days).
There’s also a rain delay and water budget feature, letting you easily adjust your watering needs as the weather and seasons change. Your timer is also compatible with rain sensors, for optimal and efficient watering only when it’s actually needed.
The LCD screen is easy to read, which continues Orbit’s tradition of providing timers with simple programming and use.
As the name suggests, this valve is completely functional off DC battery operated current. So if you have a sprinkler box without a power outlet nearby, this is the perfect timer. Three AA (1.5V) batteries are all it takes, (batteries not included).
The battery operation means it’s also portable and easily placed. The small footprint allows the timer to be placed inside the valve box with the optional solenoid mounting clip (included).
The timer portion detaches from the base for easy programming or storage and clips back in when ready to use. Each of the valve connections, as well as the timer itself, are sealed by a water tight O-ring. No worries about water creeping in and destroying sensitive electronics.
