Replacing Rainbird system
This page lists some instructions about replacing the common types of Rainbird system with Netro smart watering controller.
The common wires which should be connected to the C slots in Netro.
The Sprite controller does not need the ground wires. It does not need the rain sensor either. You can leave the M slot unconnected.
The COM wire goes to any C slot in Sprite.
The M slot will be empty because you do not have master valve.
The two red wires on the left go to the two 24 VAC slots.
Others are straightforward.
1. the COM wire in RainBird go to any of the C slots in Netro
2. The 1-6 zone wires in RainBird go to Slot 1-6 in Netro
3. Use the power adapter coming with the package for Netro
