Hunter Pro-C Controller

Can I combine a PC-300 controller with just a
PCM-900 expansion module. Which would give me a total of 12 zones.

I am a bit confused by the description:

"9 Station Expansion Module. The PCM-900 Add-on Expansion Module can only be used to increase the Pro-C Series PC-300i and PC-300 Controllers to 15 zones. This 9 station module must be used with one 3 station module to increase the controller to 15 zones."

Seems like i would need to buy a PC-300, a PCM-300, and a PCM-900.

Thanks,

Jamie

They want you to buy three PCM-300 modules, in order to get to 12 zones.

The problem is I think all I will need is 12 zones, but I might need a couple more. I wanted to buy just the controller and a 9 zone extension. Then purchase the other 3 zone extension later when needed.

Is a controller with a single 9 zone (plus the three that comes with the controller) supported?

I think you you need to buy the base controller and a 3 module in order to use the 9 station module. The 9 module unit only fits into the second available slot, and won't fit into the first.

If you want to allow for the possibility of more than 12 zones, you will have to purchase a PCM-300 and a PCM-900 ~ a PCM-900 alone won't work, even if all you need are 12 zones.

Base controller comes w/ the 3 module already...so you don't have to purchase any modules except the 9...

If you need more than 12 get a Rainbird ESP LX or Hunter ICC....just my opinion.

The Pro-C controller specifically states that the PCM-900 module is for creating a 15-zone controller, adding it after you've added a PCM-300 module. The Pro-C I recently installed had a small sticker detailing this requirement. The 'base module' is its own animal, having 5 terminals.

Boots, you're all "wet" on this one! Pro C base model is a 3-station module.

Three stations, and the common, and the master valve. Five terminals.
