(AWG) wire. Important: The wire can be buried in the ground; however, for more protection wires can be pulled through PVC pipe and buried underground. Be careful to avoid burying the wires in locations where they could be damaged by digging or trenching in the future. All wires should be joined together using wire nuts, solder, and/or vinyl tape. In wet environments like a valve box it is recommended to use Orbit Grease Caps or Speed Seals to prevent corrosion of the connection and for protection from water infiltration. Connecting Sprinkler Wires to the Timer Taking the sprinkler wire, strip 1/4” (6 mm) of the plastic insulation off the end of each individual wire. Connect the “Common” sprinkler wire (usually white in color) to the terminal l“COM”. Next connect the remaining wires to a separate terminal . See Figure 4 To avoid electrical hazards and damage to the timer, only one valve should be connected to each station. See Figure 4 Solenoid Wire Nut To Timer Valve Common Wire 4. Connect Electrical Transformer Power Connect power connector to the timer. Insert the transformer into an 120V n52 neodymium magnets
electrical outlet. See Figure 5 5. Activate Battery One Lithium CR2032 battery (included) is required to retain the program in memory during power loss. Annual replacement is recommended. Remove the plastic strip to activate the pre-installed battery. n52 neodymium(See page 12 for battery replacement) Note: The battery alone will not operate the valves in your sprinkler system.
