The easy-to-program, central control-ready Rain Bird® PAR+ES Controller features 72-Station capability, unlimited programs with central control, premium surge protection, extensive diagnostics and a best-in-class pedestal enclosure.
Standalone, two-wire and LINK.
Central Control Ready
Works with any Rain Bird Central Control System. Factory-configured to receive commands via cellular phone (MI Series Mobile Controller*) or UHF radio (FREEDOM System).
Choice of Pedestal Colors
Available in gray and green.
Large, raised control buttons with clear, descriptive icons and a high‑contrast Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) panel make programming easy — even for the novice. Lights indicate active schedules and central control status, while copy paste function speeds programming process. An angled keypad aids visibility as well as water drainage, and makes the PAR+ES controller extremely easy to use.
Greater Water Precision
The PAR+ES controller allows you to program six (6) automatic and two (2) manual schedules. It allows you to turn on a maximum of 16 valves at 60 Hz and 12 valves at 50 Hz, and features four (4) control modes — giving you ample programming and operating control.
Modular Configuration Allows Easy Expansion
The PAR+ES is available in 16 to 32- and 56-station base configurations and can be easily upgraded in 8-station increments. By simply plugging in an eight-station Output Station Module (OSM) you can expand your PAR+ES controller capabilities to accommodate 24, 40, 48, 64 or 72 stations.
Multi Manual with Station and Program Stacking. Perfect for syringing or putting down fertilizer, multi manual allows to manually launch as many stations as necessary. Split second delayed start prevents water hammer and high inrush current.
Multiple Schedule Operation
No schedule limit when operated with Rain Bird Central Control Systems. Six (6) automatic (with 8 start times each) and two (2) manual schedules available for standalone operation.
Universal Performance Simplifies Installation and Operation
The intuitive PAR+ES Controller reduces installation and training hassles with its many universal features. For quick electrical hookups, the system automatically senses and adjusts for either a 50 or 60 Hz current; while one (1) transformer accommodates 100 V/120 V, 220 V or 230 V/240 V with the flip of a switch. The PAR+ES Controller also displays system activities and accepts user input in eight (8) different languages. The icon‑driven controls and multilingual display eliminate confusion and translation problems.
