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.
