The HCC controller has the ability to operate two Hunter valves at one time, therefore, allowing for more than one program to run at the same time. Only two programs can be allowed to run concurrently. This is a great feature if you have a short water window and the available water to feed multiple stations; however, it could become an issue if the flow of your irrigation system cannot support operating multiple stations simultaneously. If you do not have the available water to operate multiple stations at one time, you will need to consider and calculate when each program will finish or review the total watering time for each program.
A few limitations exist when running two programs (zones) simultaneously with an HCC Controller.
|Incorrect Scheduling||The programs should not run past midnight. If they carry over midnight, stations will stack and push out the schedule. This might require you to adjust your run times within your available water window. The Watering Schedule feature under the reports tab will display the start and end times. Learn more|
|Suspend or Manual Operation Feature Used in Operation||Do not use the Suspend feature or Manual Operation during irrigation as it will cause the controller to stack stations. This will also push out the schedule and only run a single program.|
IMPORTANT: Running two zones simultaneously can be done through automatic programming or at the controller level. The Remote function will not allow you to run two zones simultaneously.
