DIG’s EVO100 is a Hose End Tap Timer with a 3/4” female thread inlet and male thread outlet. Power is derived via a patented, time-tested internal photovoltaic module and microelectronic energy management system that is fueled by the surrounding ambient light (solar). After being charged, this efficient energy system provides enough power for the timer to function at any time, night or day, and in any weather with no direct sunlight required. This energy system also makes the timer environmentally friendly, functioning only on clean renewable solar power without the need for a backup battery or AC power.
The EVO100 features a large, easy-to-read LCD screen and simple icon-based programming with weekly or cyclical programs, four start times per day, watering durations of up to six hours, program delay of up to 99 days, a system-off option, a manual operation option, and a sensor wire connection to accept a rain sensor.

The EVO 100 is a single zone hose end electronic irrigation timer that is easy to install and program. The patented energy management system derives power only from ambient light which is collected by a small built in photovoltaic module. This energy is then stored in long-life super capacitors. There are no batteries to install or replace, and no external power supply is required. The timer has a quick-release swivel female hose thread inlet fitting and a male hose thread outlet (BSP is also available with model EVO100I).
Before you start programming, the timer will need to be charged for one to two hours in sunlight to get up to full power. Once it’s full though, as long as it gets around 10 minutes of ambient light per day, it will stay at full charge.
The timer has seven buttons with the four arrow buttons (left, right, up, and down arrows) used to select a program parameter and a large circular button to modify and accept the parameter changes. The two buttons on the right side are used for manual operation, and for program off or irrigation suspension.
The EVO 100 is a light-powered maintenance-free timer with no batteries to replace or charge.
If a rain sensor or other closed contact sensor is used, cut the yellow wires and add the sensor per the manual, sensor instructions, making sure to use a waterproof wire connection.
