3.1 Installing the Controller onto the Irrigation System

Install the controller (4) on the irrigation system, with a filter (2) [not supplied] placed between the controller and the main tap (1). Twist the water entry of the hydraulic tap (3) [on the side without the arrow] to the filter. Connect the water line to the water exit of the tap, marked with an arrow (5), using the appropriate connector.

3.2 Connecting the Taps to the Controller

In order for the hydraulic taps to work, the cables extending from each tap have to be connected to the controller. Connection of the cables:

1. Remove the white sticker which is attached to the end of each cable coming out of the controller.

2. Attach the connectors at the ends of the cables. Before attaching, ensure that the red rubber washer (9) is threaded and is located on the connector at the end of the cable coming out from the tap (8). When the connectors are being attached, place the protrusion and the groove at the bottom of the connector so that they face each other.

2. Hold the controller upside down and firmly pull out the cover of the battery housing from the place marked “OPEN”.

3. Connect a 9V alkaline battery (not supplied) to the battery connector, placing first the bottom side (2) of the battery, and only then press the upper side in (3), making note of the polarity which is marked on the bottom of the battery housing, near the contact points. When changing the battery, ensure that the battery housing is dry.

4. Programming the Controller

There are two options for programming the GALCON 7003:

Opening each tap individually, independent of the rest of the taps.

Opening the taps sequentially, i.e., the second or third tap opens only after the previous tap completes its programmed irrigation time.

4.1 Operation of Buttons for Programming

The irrigation time is set for all start times and will continue according to the parameters set on the controller. There can be an overlap between starting times, with the possibility to program tap opening times such that there will be an overlap of irrigation times between two or more opening hours. This option allows for irrigation in the morning of 30 minutes, in the afternoon irrigation of 45 minutes (by overlap), and 30 minutes in the evening.

4.10 Manual Mechanical Operation

It is possible to open and close the irrigation tap regardless of the controller operation. This condition is useful if one wants to irrigate immediately and one doesn’t have enough time or knowledge necessary to program the controller, or if there is no battery. Manual operation is performed by turning the grey handle located at the bottom section of the seat.

To open: Turn the operating handle counter-clockwise.

To close: Turn the operating handle clockwise until it reaches the position where the handle is located above the black leg of the tap.

Note: The manual operating handle cannot close the tap while the tap is being operated by the irrigation controller.

Remember! To irrigate using the controller, the tap must be in AUTO mode.

5. Maintenance

Remove the battery when the controller is idle for an extended time.

It is required to install a filter in front of the controller and to clean it out every few months. A filter which is not clean is an opening for problems.

The battery will last at least one year (alkaline battery).

Recommended water presser is up to 8 atmosphere (Bar).

When a battery becomes weak a flashing battery symbol will appear on the display. In this condition there is still enough limited energy to operate the tap, but the battery should be replaced as soon as possible. If the battery is not replaced, the controller will open the tap only 7 times, after which everything will be wiped off the display except for the batter symbol and the word OFF. The battery can be changed in one minute without losing the program.
