Nothing... it works fine. What I meant was that I can't see RB selling it for much longer. I suspect that they are working on the next generation of central control and with their recent purchase of Climate Minder I suspect that we will see some of that technology in their next central control system.

Took your post out of context. It's easy to do.

I have plenty of experience running irrigation systems. My thought is that high water volume users in my area could benefit from this through water savings. If the benefit is financial, it becomes a no brainer.

I did a search and found nothing.
The Eagle or Eagle(I) is a great choice. You are correct, the upfront cost is a little salty, but the savings in time adjusting controllers through ICentral is priceless - not to mention the water savings if you use zipET. I have over 300 of these controllers throughout the Phoenix metro area all using ICentral - these controllers work. Feel free to PM me for more info.

We have about 30 rainmaster eagle i controllers in our district and love them. Often we cannot rely on the site facility managers to catch everything. The "all off" feature helps as well as master control valve use with unauthorized flows, high flow, low flow alarms etc. The E.T. settings work well for us also. We have seen massive water savings. We still have many to go but it takes time.

Does the RM Eagle have "auto-limits" to set parameters for amperage, as does the DX-2 Evolution?
