IRRIGATION & LANDSCAPING

ESP-LXD Decoder Controller

Your foundation for simple, decoder-based control.

Building on the success of the popular ESP-Series commercial controllers, Rain Bird is pleased to introduce the new ESP-LXD controller. 

The ESP-LXD controller has been designed to maintain the look, feel and ease of programming of the ESP-Series controllers, while offering a 2-wire path for decoder-based irrigation. 

The ESP-LXD controller can manage up to 50 stations but can easily be expanded for use with up to 200 stations. 

Flow Management is also built in to every ESP-LXD controller.

FEATURES

Easy to Use

The ESP-LXD Controller utilizes the Rain Bird® ESP Extra Simple Programming user interface. The dial, switches, and buttons interface, which Rain Bird first introduced in the 1980s, is easy to learn and use and has become a standard controller interface for the irrigation industry. The large LCD display incorporates softkey text labels for the button functions rather than dedicated buttons.

Easy to Install

The ESP-LXD Controller has a spacious case and eight lugs for up to four two-wire paths (which are all managed as a single two-wire path) making installation fast and easy. Multiple size wiring knockouts are provided on the bottom and back side of the case to adapt to a wide variety of wiring applications. The door and front panel are removable so the case can be easily mounted to the wall.

Advanced Features

From Cycle+Soak™ to Contractor Default Program™, the ESP-LXD offers innovative features proven to cut installation expenses, troubleshooting time and water use.

Unprecedented Flexibility

A modular design makes the ESP-LXD the perfect fit for a range of large residential and commercial projects—from the straightforward to the most complex.

200-Station Capacity

The ESP-LXD offers the ability to expand from 50 stations to up to 200 stations. So you can handle sites large or small, while stocking fewer controllers and components.

Built-In Flow Management

FloManager® ensures you don’t overtax your water supply, while Flo-Watch™ quickly identifies and isolates high or low flow situations, such as mainline breaks.

Smart Approved Watermark

Rain Bird’s ESP- LXD controller has received the Smart Approved Watermark. Established in Australia and recognized worldwide, this elite designation identifies products and services that help reduce water use.

Backwards Compatibility

Already have a Rain Bird® MDC Two-Wire Decoder? You won’t need to dig up your field decoders. Upgrading to the ESP-LXD is as simple as changing out your MDC controller.
