Your sequencer is a 12 volt relay , Irri controllers use 24 volts.

Nightscaping makes a 24V sprinkler relay to fit their Powercenters.

It's a T-SS-SC.


You can use a new Irritrol PC Control timer that you program from your PC, has 2 zones that aren't effected by rains sensors and intended for lighting. Also comes with a remote tha has a 1000 ft. line of sight range.

But I've only used it with the "D" program of a Hunter ICC and then turned the lights on and off with the Hunter SRR handheld remote.

Good Lord! How many ways are there to turn on a lighting system? Then again, how many ways are needed?

I did a couple of jobs a few years ago where it was spec'd to use the Nightscaping relay in the power center and it was ok. The problem we ran into was the gardener kept turning the irrigation controller off for rain and for the most part, winter, and it also turned off the lights. I eventually replaced it with Unique tf's and some sequencers and the client was thrilled to get it off the irrigation system.

Also the gardener and the home owner kept playing with the clock to adjust the irrigation and would screw up the time for the lighting as well.
