The RBC 7000 Single-Station Battery Operated Timer mounted on a 3/4″ inline valve has joined DIG’s innovative and rugged line of battery operated timers and is ideal for use in residential and commercial applications, or where AC power is unavailable. Outfitted with the latest and most efficient electronic management technology, the RBC 7000 can operate up to three years on two AA alkaline batteries. It features a large, easy-to-read LCD screen and simple icon-based programming with weekly or cyclical programs. The timer’s 3/4″ professional grade inline valve includes flow control and two adapters to convert the inline valve with pipe thread into hose thread, allowing for outdoor faucet connections. Completely waterproof and able to operate in harsh environments, the RBC 7000 is the simple and dependable solution for drip irrigation and sprinkler systems above or below grade.

This RBC 7000 single-station battery operated timer can be installed above the ground or inside an irrigation box. It has a 3/4” female pipe thread inlet and outlet so it can be installed directly onto a 3/4” male pipe thread PVC as part of a drip irrigation or sprinkler system valve manifold, or as a stand-alone unit. It can also be attached to a garden hose or faucet/spigot using the two hose-to-pipe adapters included.
The timer has seven buttons. The center four buttons (left, right, up, and down arrows) are used to select or modify a program parameter. A large center button accepts the parameter change and moves or skips to the next step or icon. The upper right button is used for manual on/off while the upper left button is used to stop irrigation (program off).
Make sure to install the valve with the flow direction arrow engraved on the side pointed away from the water source, and with the solenoid on the outlet side of (downstream from) the valve.
Recommendations: Wrap all fittings with Teflon tape. Do not use pipe cement on the valve as it will damage the valve thread and void the warranty.
This timer requires two AA batteries (alkaline battery recommended)
