The Rain Bird® ET Manager™ Cartridge easily upgrades the ESP-LXD Controller or ESP-LXME Decoder Controller to an ET/Weather-based irrigation smart controller. The ET Manager Cartridge uses the same Weather Reach™ signal as the Rain Bird® ET Manager (ETMi).
The ET Manager Cartridge saves water by making real-time adjustments to the irrigation schedule based on hourly weather information. Additionally, by eliminating the need to travel to controller sites to make adjustments or programming changes, the ET Manager Cartridge contributes to significant labor savings.
The ET Manager Cartridge is ideal for high-end residential and light commercial applications. The ET Manager Cartridge is easily installed in any ESP-LX Series controller with minimal need for tools or wiring.
The Rain Bird® ET Manager Programming Software (ETMPS) uses your personal computer to simplify ET Manager programming. This application allows the user to transfer ET Manager Scheduler settings directly from the PC to an ET Manager Cartridge via a USB cable. Additional functions of the ET Manager Programming Software:
Fully compatible with the ET Manager Cartridge, the Traditionally Wired ESP-LXME Enhanced Controller offers optional flow sensing and management with modular station capacity from 8 to 48 stations. Learn more about the ESP-LXME Controller.
Combine the ET Manager with the ESP-LXD Controller to deliver powerful ET Management for larger commercial sites. Expandable for up to 200 stations, ESP-LXD combines Extra Simple Programming with an efficient 2-wire path. Flow Management is also built in to every ESP-LXD.
