    Mike,

    Site with 7 RME Eagles. I want to add Icentral. One receiver and the controllers talk to each other, or 7 receivers? At 800 bucks retail, Id like to buy one rather than 7.

    After two months with this system, I know why they are the schitt!

    Much obliged. Boxed wine is in the mail, in advance.

    My expertise is with the Evolution DX, they can be daisy chained with one
    clock acting as "Mom", but I don't know about the Eagles.
    Let me do some research & I'll get back. :)

    RM says they can share some info (rain sensors, etc.) but you will need
    a reciever for each clock. That's where it differs from the Evolution DX.
    Sorry, pal. :cry::drinkup:

    Bill tells me between 3 & 4k depending on enclosure. They do spec lightning
    protection for Colorado clocks & might even throw in a com card. He said
    the Eagle & I-Central now outsell my beloved Evolution. Psst, word on the
    street is RM is working on a new remote with readout screen, enabling
    program changes, monitoring flow & amps.

    Nice. Ill check again, thought I saw some small antanae in the clocks, werent sure what communication they would do. Cant imagine they are set up with Icentral and no one ever told us, though the way the last group went out of there on the ice wagon, wouldnt be surprised.

    Remote with display would be sweet.

    You mean for a 1000+ bucks it doesn't already do that. :hammerhead:
     
  10. I'd rather they keep the version they have and make it more rock solid and leave the info stuff at the controller.
