Get Smart: The X-Core Does More

Searching for a hard working, entry-level residential controller? X-Core is on the case. Hunter’s popular XC controller is now X-Core. Plug in the revolutionary Solar Sync ET sensor and the X-Core is converted into a Smart controller, using advanced water conservation technology and regulating irrigation runtimes based on locally measured weather. Installation and maintenance are simple with Hunter remote capability, accessible through the optional SmartPort®. Control up to 8 stations with 3 programs and 4 start times each. Case closed.

Indoor and outdoor models available


Dependability Comes Standard

Don’t worry about a thing. X-Core’s non-volatile memory maintains the current program and correct day and time in the event of a power outage. The Easy Retrieve™ memory holds the preferred program as a permanent backup that can be easily reinstalled over any changes made by the end user.
