If that's a gasketed thread-on cover, I like it better than the TRC connector.

Could be an Eicon or a TRC DCI remote port. I'm guessing Eicon though becasue the TRC DCI port doesn't have that many pins.

i've seen this type of remote port multiple times in my area...i'm pretty sure i know what company is installing them, and i also remember hearing that they might have a specific remote port/controller made just for them...i guess it's so they are the only ones that can use that port so that the homeowner will call them instead...just figured i would ask on here, i'm sure someone will know the answer...i'm not familiar with anything but the hunter remotes...my first guess was the rain master remote since I've never seen one, given this company has installed hunter and rainbird clocks...it looks like it goes up to 15 zones, each prong has a wire

Those connectors can be assembled on a custom basis, with as many pins as needed.

Where is Fimco when someone needs him? Eicon made quality stuff until Toro bought them out.

the other thing i wanted to add is i am not sure if this company still installs these remote ports...i haven't seen any new ones...70% of the clocks around here are hunter so i think i'll just stick to my hunter remotes and try to change the other ones over as needed...just really wanted to find out what this company was doing, i figured it was a "one remote for all clocks" type of remote and figured they knew something i didn't...

It might still be quality stuff. I don't think there are cheapo versions of that connector setup. Different quality pins, no doubt, for Mil-Spec needs.

Given our wonderfully clean air (* cough cough *) it probably makes sense to have pins with some amount of gold plating.
