Wired Rain/Freeze-Clik Rain Sensors

 

 

Hunter Industries has introduced a hard-wired version of its popular Wireless Rain/Freeze-Clik™ sensor; combining both a rain and freeze sensor into a single; price-competitive unit.

Designed for irrigation professionals who prefer wired sensor installations; the new Rain/Freeze--Clik sensor also meets local regulations where both a rain and freeze sensor are required; such as in the Dallas; Texas; area. Combining a rain and freeze sensor into one unit eliminates the need for separate sensors and installations.

Like Hunter’s Rain-Clik sensor; the new Rain/Freeze-Clik uses Hunter’s innovative and unique Quick Response™ feature; designed to shut the irrigation system down as soon as it begins to rain. No other sensor offers this feature.

Other features and benefits of Hunter’s new hard-wired Rain/Freeze-Clik include:

  • Quick and easy installation on most irrigation controllers. Hunter’s hard-wired Rain/Freeze-Clik comes with a standard metal extension arm and 25 feet of wire. An optional metal gutter mount (part #SGM) can also be used for gutter installations.

  • Automatic freeze alert. The freeze sensor shuts off the irrigation system when temperatures fall below 37 degrees Fahrenheit; reducing the potential for ice to form on landscapes; walkways or roadways.

  • No calibration or adjustment needed. The freeze sensor; enclosed in a polycarbonate housing attached to the bottom of the Rain-Clik sensor; does not require calibration or adjustment. Slots in the side of the housing allow air to flow around the sensor for accurate temperature sensing.

Hunter’s hard-wired Rain/Freeze-Clik sensor is now available for shipment.

Hunter Industries is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of irrigation equipment for the landscape and golf course industries.
 

Hunter Rain-Clik® Rain Sensors

Reliable Rain Sensor With Instant Shut-Off
The reason to install a rain sensor is so an automatic irrigation system that is scheduled to run will be able to shut off and NOT run when it is raining; right? However; most rain-sensing devices must first accumulate a set amount of rainfall before a switch is activated that interrupts the circuit from the controller and shuts off the system. In that “accumulation time;” the system will continue to water; giving the appearance a precious resource is being wasted…exactly the opposite impression a municipality; a business or an upstanding citizen would like to convey. Only the Hunter Rain-Clik™; with its unique Quick Response™ feature; can command a controller to shut off immediately – not after a quarter- or a half-inch; but right when it starts to rain. And; unlike any of its competitors; the Rain-Clik™ can be mounted in a variety of ways: on a rain gutter; on conduit; with a telescoping extension to bring the unit away from an eave; or in the standard method on a flat vertical surface like a wall or fence.

A Variety of Mounting Options

Whether you offer a rain-sensing device as an upgrade to your installations or you already install one as a standard piece of equipment; wouldn’t you like to have options on where you must install it? The usual place to install a rain-sensing device has been on a flat vertical surface; such as a wall or fence. With the Hunter Rain-Clik™; you can also mount it on a rain gutter; or on a piece of 1/2" conduit with Hunter’s new mounting hardware. In addition; Hunter offers an 8" telescoping extension rod that brings the unit out from under a roofing eave or other obstruction.

Freeze-Clik® Freeze Sensors

Control Irrigation System Operation During Freezing Temperatures

In many areas; it is quite common to have mild temperatures in the evening; then have a freeze set in overnight. If your automatic irrigation system were set to go on as usual during this chill; in the morning you would find a landscape frozen over; with ice on adjoining driveways; sidewalks and even roadways. In places with temperature swings like this; the results are not only hazardous to the life of your lawn and plants; it can also be hazardous to those who may walk or drive nearby. With the Hunter Freeze-Clik® you can prevent irrigation systems from activating by automatically stopping the flow of water when the outdoor temperature drops to a near freezing level. When the temperature rises above that set point; Freeze-Clik® simply resets your system to its regular cycle. Easy to mount; easy to use; Freeze-Clik® can also be used in conjunction with other weather sensing devices to guarantee the optimum effectiveness of a landscape irrigation system in virtually all types of weather.
