Underhill's new converter provides flexibility

The Novo 2Wire can convert any controller to 2Wire operation.

November 6, 2012

Underhill introduces the new Novo 2Wire Converter, which converts any controller (Rain Bird, Toro, Hunter) to 2Wire operation.

How 2Wire Works

• Only one pair of two wires runs from the controller to all valves in the system.
• 24 VAC power and address signal are sent over the same pair of wires.
• Valves are installed along the two-wire path. Each valve has an individual “field decoder” (or receiver switch) installed at the solenoid.
• Every valve field decoder/receiver has a unique address that identifies it to the controller. Signals are sent to each valve field decoder/receiver from the controller telling it when to open or close.
• Any existing or new commercial controller can easily be converted to two-wire operation with up to 63 stations.
