What rain sensor can be wired to EZflora breakout connector

Postby satwar » Sun Jul 14, 2013 7:18 pm

Seems that Claber 90915 rain sensor can not connect directly to EZflora (requires pulse water meter). Is this true ?

Will the Toro or Rainbird rain sensors work ?

Hello there,

The breakout sensor is not required for any connections...it just makes it easier to make the connection, as you get a RJ-45 connector at the bottom of your EZFlora, so you'd have to splice open a Cat5 cable and know which wires are going where to make the correct connection.

A water meter is not required to use the rain sensor either. The breakout connection manual is simply letting you know how to connect a compatible meter, not saying that you have to connect a water meter to use the rain sensor.

Any rain sensor that is a normally closed dry contact and opens when rain is sensed would work with the specified resistor.

I hope that helps!
