    Q:Hi, Is this rain sensor compatible with the Rainbird ESP-6Si controller?
    by|Jan 28, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Many modern controllers include built-in terminals for rain sensor lead wires. Dedicated rain sensor terminals are usually labeled “sensor”, “SENS”, ”S” or “SN” on the controller’s terminal strip. To connect the rain sensor, remove the jumper wire (if present) from the controller’s rain sensor terminals. Then, connect the red and black lead wires from the rain sensor to the controller’s sensor terminals (it does not matter which wire goes to each terminal). For controllers without dedicated rain sensor terminals (such as the ESP-6Si), disconnect the wire from the common terminal (“C” or “COM”) on the controller’s terminal strip and reconnect this wire to the red rain sensor lead wire. Next, connect the black rain sensor lead wire to the common terminal (“C” or “COM”) on the controller’s terminal strip. When the rain sensor is connected, it is recommended that the system be tested to ensure it is working correctly. Turn the controller on to initiate irrigation. Hold down the plunger located on top of the rain sensor; the zone should turn off after a few seconds. If it does not turn off, check your rain sensor wire connections. If you would like additional help in setting up or operating the Rain Bird RSD Wired Rain Sensor, please feel free to contact our technical support at 1-800-RAIN BIRD (800-724-6247) and we’d be more than happy to assist.

      Q:Does this work with hunter pcc-600i?

      Answer This Question

      A:  The Rain Bird RSD Rain Sensor is compatible with all 24V alternating current (VAC) control circuits and 24 VAC pump start relay circuits. It's also an easy to install device, as many modern controllers (such as those from Rain Bird) include built-in terminals for rain sensor lead wires. Dedicated rain sensor terminals are usually labeled “sensor”, “SENS”, ”S” or “SN” on the controller’s terminal strip. For controllers without rain sensor terminals, the sensor can be connected by disconnecting the wire from the common terminal (“C” or “COM”) on the controller’s terminal strip. Then, connect this wire to the red rain sensor lead wire. Next, connect the black rain sensor lead wire to the common terminal (“C” or “COM”) on the controller’s terminal strip. If you would like additional help, please feel free to contact our technical support at 1-800-RAIN BIRD (800-724-6247) and we’d be more than happy to assist.

        Q:Can I bypass the rain sensor on my Rainbird SST600in?
        by|Jul 19, 2023
        2 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  The manual shows the rain sensor connected to two terminals marked in yellow labelled 'Rain Sensor'. To bypass the rain sensor, remove the rain sensor wires from those terminals and install a jumper wire from one to the other.

          A:  yes, loosen the top cap

              Cuts watering system IF it happens to rain
              Easy to install, but unknown if the unit works well since there has not been any rain to check. The mechanism is quite simple and the old unit could have easily been repaired by replacing only the switch, if it was made available. Since the old wiring went underground, I twisted and soldered the connect wiring, then applied heat shrink insulation tubing. I had to replace the new bracket with the old bracket because it was too short. A small level is handy.

              I have had it installed for three weeks. I noticed on one occasion after heavy rain the sensor prevented the sprinkler system from starting. I have it set at 1/4 inch of rain.
