Rain Bird ESP12-LXMEF-12-Station Sprinkler Controller with Flow Smart Module

The Rain Bird ESP12-LXMEF-12-Station Sprinkler Controller with the Smart Flow Module provides enhanced features for commercial use.

The Flo-Watch™ protection feature monitors high and low irrigation conditions with user-defined reactions. The large LCD display incorporates soft key text labels for the button functions rather than dedicated buttons. Multiple language support allows the end-user or maintenance personnel to interface with the controller in their primary language. User selectable languages include English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, and Portuguese. Date, time, and unit formats are also user configurable.

Standard with the Rain Bird® ESP-LXMEF Controller and available as an upgrade to the ESP-LXME Controller, the Flow Smart Module provides flow learning, logging and problem reaction. This innovative tool is also compatible with the IQ™ v2.0 Central Control.
