Netafim Landscape Controller NLC-100D Decoder

Features & Benefits

  • Programmable Line Decoder
    Decoder is easily programmed by the user with specific station identifications connected anywhere along the 2-Wire path to turn on almost any 24VAC solenoid valve.
  • Supports 1 To 100 Valves
    Operate up to 100 valves with one 2-Wire path, connecting the valves in a series.
  • Integrated Diagnostics
    Controller tests for decoder operation as well as 2-Wire path conditions.
  • Manage Remotely
    Control irrigation programs and review daily logs and schedules for multiple sites from any web-based computer (service contract required).
  • Instant Troubleshooting
    Built-in monitors and alarms send automatic notifications pinpointing the exact nature of the problem (service contract required).
  • Easy To Expand
    Adapts to your growing system by allowing the addition or modification of valves with no need for costly rewiring or upgrades.
  • Energy Efficient
    The 2-Wire cable carries both power and signal to control each valve using 1/10th the power of a conventional system.



  • For commercial and residential applications
  • For recreational applications such as sports fields, parks and arenas
  • Nurseries and greenhouses

Decoders, Surge Protection and Wires

The decoder is easily programmed with a specific station ID, then connected anywhere along the 2-Wire path to enable valve activation. The decoder energizes almost any 24VAC solenoid and can be reprogrammed with a different ID when desired.

Wire options:

  • NLC DECODER (BLUE: NLC100D) required.
  • TUCOR WIRE – is the preferred means of connecting the field decoders to the controller. Tucor wire is designed expressly to ensure a secure, water-tight electrical pathway.
    NOTE: Tucor wire is not supplied by Netafim.
  • NETAFIM SINGLENET CABLE – two low capacitance wires and a drain wire, 16 AWG, pre-packaged as a single cable inside a polyethylene sheath.

Field disruptions due to lightning are minimized by the use of the NLCSP100 surge protector which safely absorbs 2-Wire voltage surges adding substantial protection to the 2-Wire path.
