The Calsense Hub, model CS3-HUB, provides the same benefits as the CS3000 irrigation controller but also includes the ability to share a communication link back to the cloud using radio technology. A single hub can manage communication with hundreds of controllers including ET2000e and ET2000 controllers.

Flexibility

Like the CS3000, it offers flexibility found nowhere else in the industry. If the Hub is located in an area that requires irrigation, it can also operate as a controller with all of the features found in the CS3000.

Radio Communications

The communication link between the Hub and surrounding irrigation controllers can be:

  • Local Radio, model CS3-LR, which operates on the 450-470 MHz FCC licensed frequency band
  • Spread Spectrum Radio, model CS3-SR, which requires line-of-site

A radio survey is required before final acceptance of Local Radio as a communication method. Calsense will provide this survey at no-charge to the user. The Local Radio option also requires the end user to license frequencies with the FCC. Calsense will assist with the application forms and selection of appropriate frequencies if necessary. The Spread Spectrum Radio option does not require FCC licensing.

CS3-HUB Controller Details

The Hub can be ordered as a standard hub, model CS3-HUB, which does not include any stations outputs, though they can be added at any time later with the CS3000’s unique modular design. Additionally, the ability to act as a Hub can be added to any CS3000 irrigation controller by adding the CS3-HUB-OPT option.
