What does no AC mean on orbit sprinkler?


The NO or NO AC indicator indicates that the controller has lost its ability to receive alternating current power. The controller is powered by the backup battery, which ensures that it remains operational. Make sure the power supply is working properly by plugging in a light or a radio to the wall socket to ensure there is electricity available at the outlet.


In light of this, why does my orbit sprinkler timer indicate that it is out of power?

This may be caused by a number of factors, including: • A disconnected power source. A fuse that has blown (in some models). Note on programming: Orbit® timers are equipped with a rain delay option to help you save water while you’re at it.


In the same vein, how many zones do I need for my sprinkler installation?

The resultant number will be equal to the number of zones you need. If, for example, each sprinkler head requires a flow rate of 1.31 GPM and you have a total of 20 sprinkler heads, you will need a total of 26.2 GPM in total. As a result, if your system is only capable of handling 16.67, you will need to employ two zones to cover the same amount of yard.

What is the proper way to replace a fuse in a sprinkler system?

The Replacement of a Fusible Link Disconnect the sprinkler controller from its power source and set it aside. Pull the blown fuse out of the clamps that are holding it in place using your hands — do not try to use pliers since the glass may shatter if you do.
