The SmartLine® controller has two dial positions for manual system starts:
3.1 Manual Zone
Manual Zone allows user to water a single zone for specified period of time. Use NEXT and BACK buttons to select zone. Use UP and DOWN to select run time for the zone. A zone can be operated with the Manual Zone function regardless of whether the zone has an assigned run time. You must return dial to RUN for Manual Zone operation to begin. All manual watering operations will override watering day settings, omit settings, and rain/freeze events.
3.2 Manual Test
The Manual Test can be used to set a test run time for all zones which have an assigned zone run time in any program. Any zone without an assigned zone run time will NOT run in the Manual Test. Use UP and DOWN buttons to set Manual Test run time. The Manual Test can be set to run a minimum of 10 seconds or a maximum of 10 minutes. You must return dial to RUN for Manual Test operation to begin.
Manual Test will detect open circuits (less than 30 mA draw) on any used zone or a short on any output (master valve or zone). If the display indicates FAULT while running a Manual Test, refer to Advanced Menu to identify the FAULT.
