    Hi,

    I “almost” have my B Hyve wired and installed. I hardwired it and have it mounted. My issue is that I have a single solenoid on top of an Anti Siphon valve to a four zone manual, pressure activated plunger. Thus, I only have two wires coming into the box. My previous intermatic clock timer had one solenoid wire connected to common and one to the clock terminal. I “assume” that one wire will go to the B Hyve Com terminal and one to the 24v, is that correct?

    Also, when I set up my schedule, will I set up a watering sched that will run for a prescribed period, followed by a shut down and then another….rinse and repeat.

    Hello, I’ll give this my best shot, hope I understand your question and situation correctly.

    The 24V terminal is a constant power output, so, as long as you have something connected to it it will be powered on, if that’s what you want then that’s fine.

    Otherwise, I’d use the Com(mon) as you mention and the Station 1 port instead, this will only send 24V to the connected device when Station 1 is activated, thus giving you the scheduling effect.

    When you create your custom program you can have up to four start times with as much time between them as you want.

    You also have 3 (or 4 on newer timers) programming slots (A,B,C (D)) so you can have four start times across 3 or four programs, this is probably more than you asked for but I guess what I am saying is you have a lot of options for days of the week, time of day and variations of those with the custom programs.

    Hope this answers your question, if not let us know and we’ll get more help. ­čśë

    Great! Thats what I thought. I just ran one to common and one to Station1 and nothing came on. The 24v and COM should do it!

    Thanks
