The AGMAC timers are powered by a 7 amp hour sealed lead acid battery which is recharged by a 5 watt solar panel. This means the unit needs no recharging and the box can also be recharged by a 240 volt power pack if necessary.
The 2 pin plug and 4 pin solar plug are sealed connectors which helps keep ants and moisture out of the box. This also means that the plugs cannot be inserted into the wrong connectors. The printed circuit boards have a conformal coating which is corrosion resistant and the steel is galvanised to prevent rust.
Simple to Use and Cost Effective
The control box and actuator arm are removable (see video) which means depending on the sort of system you require or can afford, you can set up the system to suit your needs i.e. 20 solar mounts, 10 actuator arms and 5 control boxes. The system can in future be upgraded simply by inserting a radio frequency printed circuit board into the control box. This means reduced set up costs and being able to add to the system without discarding anything you’ve bought.
The solar mount is mounted to any bay outlet you wish to water.
The actuator arm may be slid over the solar mount and attached to the bay outlet flap.
The control box slides easily onto the mounts and you simply connect the solar panel and actuator cables.
