RL200 Valve Controller

RL200 – Valve Controller

Description

The RL200 is an intelligent expansion controller that adds 12 extra control outputs to any Ranch Systems wireless unit. Using RS485 communication, multiple RL200s can be “daisy-chained” on the same wireless unit to provide up to 72 control outputs in a wired network up to a total of 1000 feet.

When used for controlling valves, each of the 12 outputs can be configured as either N.O (normally open) or DC latching. N.O. is used to switch existing 24 VAC irrigation currents while DC latching can be used with compatible solenoids to switch valves using the power provided by the RL200 (ultimately from the host RM210 or RS300 unit).

Outputs in the N.O. configuration can also be used to switch virtually any other pieces of equipment under low-voltage electrical control, such as pump starting circuits or gate opener input.
