SAN MARCOS, Calif. — Hunter’s new handheld EZ-DT diagnostic tool uses wireless technology to streamline installation and maintenance of EZ Decoder Systems.

Contractors can use the EZ-DT to quickly assess system health from within the valve box without having to uninstall the decoders.

“Modeled after the Hunter ICD-HP handheld programmer, the EZ-DT uses proprietary wireless electromagnetic induction communication. This makes it unique in the marketplace and a valuable tool for irrigation professionals,” said Ben Sacks, product manager.

The battery-operated EZ-DT lets EZ-1 decoder users:

  • Detect faults and perform electrical troubleshooting in the field without uninstalling decoders.
  • Quickly read decoder status, station address, current draw and two-wire voltage to simplify maintenance.
  • Program decoder station address via wired connection to speed up installation and save time on-site.
  • Update controller facepack or decoder module firmware via ribbon cable connection for flexibility when updating systems.
  • Communicate in their preferred language using the multilingual user interface.
  • Work efficiently on the go with power supplied by four AAA batteries.
