Cost and complexity have often limited decoder technology to higher-end systems. However, with the revolutionary EZ Decoder System (EZDS), you get all the advantages of two-wire installations with simpler, more cost-effective technology — so you can bring the power of two-wire control to more projects than ever before.

EZDS is compatible with all the features of our Hydrawise™-enabled HCC controller, as well as the ICC2 controller and its web-based Centralus™ management platform. Plug in the EZ-DM two-wire output module to enable up to 54 stations of irrigation, plus a master valve, on a single pair of wires. Then simply place EZ Decoders at each valve!

EZ Decoders are small, waterproof, and come with color-coded wiring and a convenient LED status light. They do not require special wire or connectors to function. Better yet, the system can coexist with conventional output modules, allowing hybrid functionality of both direct-wired valves and decoder operations in the same controller. This technology also permits easy conversion of a conventionally wired system to two-wire using the existing wiring bundle. It’s that easy!

Features

  • Two-wire decoder system for HCC and ICC2 controllers
  • Up to 54-station capacity, plus master valve
  • No special wire or connectors required
  • Allows hybrid operations of conventional and decoder stations (54 total stations max per controller)
  • Programmable decoders with no serial numbers
  • Wire paths possible for over 3,000′
  • No special grounding or surge arrestors required in-line
  • EZ-1 single-station decoders have status LED for positive diagnostics
  • P/MV can be activated by decoder or direct controller output

No special wire or connectors required!

EZ Decoders are compatible with standard wire and connectors, making it cost-effective and simple to install.
