The Aurora Pedestal-Mount Controller/Satellite
delivers the ultimate in power, ease and value.
Aurora is designed to function as a stand-alone
controller or can manage an entire satellite network
without a central computer. In fact, each Aurora
controller/satellite has the power of a central
computer for unprecedented control and
unparalleled value. The controller/satellite can
be operated by a handheld remote control or
an Aurora Lite, Enterprise or Professional Central
• Built-in microprocessor and true two-way communication allow Aurora to operate as a central-free, stand-alone controller/satellite or network, or as part of a controller or central computer-controlled network. Monitors, stores and shares data from multiple sensors across the network.
• Uses hardwire, telephone and radio communications on the same network.
• Handheld radios control field controller/satellites without a central computer or software.
• 128 independent programs per day allow calendar control of each station in any sequence, with multiple repeats and pauses.
• Powerful water budgeting from 0-999%.
• Weather station monitoring for automatic ET-adjusted irrigation schedule.
