Provides surge protection for the controller and the field devices in the 2-Wire Path
Helps prevent damage to the controller and irrigation system
Significantly reduces troubleshooting repair time and expenses
Features and Benefits
Field Devices are installed along the 2-Wire path to interface with valves and other hardware.
Interfaces with LX-IVM to control station valves and master valves
Rain Bird WC20 connectors (included with IVMSOL; sold separately) to be used for all splices
This product can be used in conjunction with the ESP-LXIVM Series Controllers and its respective ESP-LXIVM 2-Wire Field Devices. These devices (sold separately) include the:
IVM-SOL: Control station or master valves
IVM-OUT: Interfaces with LX-IVM to manage 3rd party valves and external gear such as pump stations
IVM-SEN: Interfaces with LX-IVM to control weather sensors or flow sensors
IVM-SD: provides surge protection on the 2-Wire path
The IVM-SD provides surge protection for the ESP-LXIVM controller and the 2-Wire path.
The ESP-LXIVM controller and the 2-Wire path must be properly surge protected and grounded.
Doing so can help prevent damage to the controller and irrigation system and also significantly reduce troubleshooting, repair time and expense. Failure to do so could result in failure of your controller and voiding the warranty.
- Connect the red and black wires on the IVM-SD to the 2-Wire Path
- Connect the green wires from the IVM-SD to the grounding rod or plate
- For future troubleshooting or modifications, its is recommended to leave an additional 3 feet of 2-Wire cable stores in each valve box location.
Note: Use only WC20 splice kits for all wiring connections to the 2-Wire Path. Improper wiring can cause serious damage to your controller or irrigation system. One IVM-SD is required every 500 feet or every 15 field devices.
