Stratus™ II Central Control System

Two-Wire, Wireless and Decoder Central Control System.
Now with RainWatch.™

For easy-to-use, time- or ET-based scheduling, there’s really only one choice — Stratus™ II — the one irrigation central control system that combines the point-and-click simplicity of Windows® with intuitive Rain Bird features to control up to as many as 27 holes.


  • QuickIRR ™ programming is a quick and easy method for automatically building programs to meet your irrigation challenges.
  • Exclusive CYCLE+SOAK™ reduces or eliminates wasteful runoff by matching each sprinkler’s application rate to the localized soil infiltration rate. Total application of water is precisely controlled regardless of number of cycles.
  • Course monitor screens are intuitively designed to instantly show you exactly what is going on with your course.
  • Pump Profiling™ automatically manages pump station power consumption during peak electrical rate periods.
  • Industry’s only innovative, guided initialization and start‑up programming results in a customized QuickStart™ program.
  • Dryrun™ helps you fine tune your irrigation programs for peak performance.
  • The highest performance irrigation engine in the industry means you can expect some of the highest Water Window Efficiencies available.

Software Options

  • SmartWeather™ Software enhances regular weather software to include weather station call‑back based on user-defined conditions for any of the instruments, i.e., rainfall, windspeed, temperature, humidity, etc.
  • Smart Sensors™ monitor standard in-field sensors to activate alarms, turn off or pause individual programs, schedules or the entire system then turn on or resume the same.
  • Station Layers-Map/Operation lets you individually control, manage and program sprinklers directly from the map.
  • Hybrid allows multiple field interface devices on a central. These are a combination of two of these devices, therefore allowing the possibility of having a decoder system in addition to a satellite system operate from the same central.
  • Weather Software allows central to communicate with Rain Bird weather station, being able to monitor, receive, update and calculate ET value for establishing run times.
  • Smart Pump™ links your pump station to your central control system; optimizing each and every irrigation cycle. Smart Pump can also monitor and instantly react to changes in pump station capacity so an overheated motor won’t take down your entire irrigation system.
