Rain Bird® ESP-LX Series Controllers make saving time and water simple.
Design and build the irrigation control system you want using only the components you need. Demonstrating once again our commitment to The Intelligent Use of Water™, ESP-LX Series Controllers combine modularity with advanced water management and Extra Simple Programming. As an irrigation contractor, distributor, specifier or water manager, you’ll save precious time, money and water. Choose from the traditionally wired ESP-LXME or the two-wire, decoder-based ESP-LXD. Both controllers are compatible with IQ™ v2.0 Central Control System.
Intuitive operation.
The ESP-LXD and ESP-LXME each feature Extra Simple Programming. From the large LCD display to the simple-to-use dial to easy-to-follow prompts, both controllers are designed to help cut installation expenses and troubleshooting time. Thanks to a shared user interface, if you know how to program the ESP-LXD or ESPLXME, you already know how to program its counterpart.
Unprecedented flexibility.
Modular designs make the ESP-LXD and ESP-LXME perfect for a range of small to large projects—from the straightforward to the most complex. Choose from a variety of station counts, accessories and optional features, only paying for what you need now—with the option of adding more in the future. Many of the same optional components can be used to upgrade both controllers, so you can also stock fewer parts.
Powerful features.
In addition to time- and water-saving standard features like Cycle+Soak™ and Contractor Default Program™, the ESP-LXD and ESP-LXME offer an easy upgrade path to advanced features. Adding an ETC-LX ET Manager™ Cartridge converts an ESP-LX Series Controller into a Smart Controller. To add Central Control, just insert the IQ™ NCC Communications Cartridge. Or, to add Flow Sensing to the ESP-LMXE, snap the Flow Smart Module into place. With the ESP-LX Series, it’s just that simple.
