2-Wire Technology

The Calsense 2-Wire technology provides easy and cost-effective installation and expansion of any landscape project using the CS3000 Irrigation Controller with the 2-Wire decoder system. 2-Wire designs operate irrigation station solenoids by transmitting signal and power down the same path, avoiding the need for separate wiring for each valve.

The 2-Wire board (CS3-2WIRE-OPT) allows a single controller to manage up to 128-independent valves, anywhere along a 7,000-foot cable run. Decoders are available as a 2-station POC and as a POC decoder. By combining multiple 2-Wire POC decoders, a single controller can manage multiple points of connection, as well as operate a two or three-level bypass manifold.
