With the GARDENA Rain Sensor, natural rainfall is taken into consideration when set up with an automatic irrigation system. Irrigation is not started if it is raining, or it stops if rain begins during irrigation. The optical-electronic operation principle allows a fast reaction to the start of rainfall. The Rain Sensor can be placed into the bed beside the plants, or placed on a solid surface. The GARDENA Rain Sensor electronic is supplied with a 5 m connecting cable and plug. For operation, one 9 V alkaline battery is required (not included). This ensures reliable measurement results for approx. one year. Note: The following GARDENA products can be connected: GARDENA Water Computers EasyControl (Art. No. 1881), FlexControl (Art. No. 1883), SelectControl (Art. No. 1885), T 1030 card (Art. No. 1830), MultiControl (Art. No. 1862), MultiControl duo (Art. No. 1874), MasterControl (Art. No. 1864), MasterControl solar (Art. No. 1866).
The GARDENA Rain Sensor electronic stops irrigation at the start of rainfall and thereby helps to save tap- or cistern water.
The Rain Sensor can either be stuck into the bed beside the plants using the spike, or it can be placed on a solid surface – depending on your individual requirement.
Through the optical-electronic operation principle, irrigation is quickly stopped at the onset of rainfall. Natural rainfall is thereby considered in the Irrigation Control System.
The five-metre-long connecting cable allows flexible connection of the Rain Sensor.
