Wireless Weather Station

The NLCET300W is an affordable wireless weather station that allows the Netafim Landscape Controllers (NLC-100S, NLC-100S Hybrid and NLC-100D) to use local ET data. This ET information is used to provide precise watering of the soil, based on the specific environmental factors. The controller can be programmed with a range of parameters, using the ET data to its maximum effectiveness, using neither too much nor too little water in the irrigation programs. Since the weather station monitors local weather conditions, you’re assured that the information closely reflects what’s happening near the controller, not many miles away.

The weather station communicates to the controller wirelessly, up to 1,000’ line-of-sight, and is powered by solar cells. Controller connection to the weather station is a wireless receiver, which sends wired ET and rain pulses to the controller. The weather station can share its data with other Netafim Landscape Controllers either over the internet* or by using a separate wireless receiver at each controller. Merely adding a tipping rain bucket to each controller ensures accurate weather data that is specific to each controller.
