Can this rain sensor be used with Hunter SRC irrigation controller, model #600i?

Can this rain sensor be used with Hunter SRC irrigation controller, model #600i?
Asked by: HandymanBill
If the controller connection is normally closed (has a jumper across the terminals) this will work fine. Just remove the jumper and replace it with the two wires. Every rain sensor I have used is of this design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves water. I rely on this to stop my sprinkler during rainy days. It has worked well so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work I installed this over a year ago on my system and it simply does not work. I have adjusted it to the lowest rain fall setting and even after a hard rain my system will still run. I can manually go up and depress the button causing my system to shut off so I know it is wired and hooked up correctly. I have even closed the air gap to prevent it from drying out quickly but nothing works. Poor product and it just does not work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Placement is important In operation, rain enters the top and saturates a shaft of fiber washers. As the washers become heavy with moisture, they press down on a switch which, when connected to most irrigation controllers, stops irrigation until the washers dry out. In theory, the user can also set the sensor to any one of several "notches" which correspond to "inches of rain" the sensor accumulates before stopping the watering. There is also an adjustment that supposedly slows evaporation. I found that in trying several locations, the washers dried out too quickly, in spite of adjustments. For example, we would have a heavy downpour of rain all afternoon and the sensor would eventually block irrigation operation BUT by 8 pm, the sensor would allow the irrigation system to operate. Placement in a shaded area is imperative but high outdoor temperatures rendered this device useless for me and I returned it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works but...................... Works but if you live in a area prone to hail expect the plunger pin and or the cap to be broken. Hence it will no longer work. Don't want to spend $20 for another order replacement parts with one exception... THEY DON'T OFFER PARTS to be purchased for this sensor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Purchase Orbit Rain/ Freeze sensor appears to be a high quality product. I especially appreciate the rugged two conductor 20 AWG, 25 ft (long) lamp 'zip' cord controller cable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AS advertised This is a very good replacement for the original one that came with the system.
