I recently bought the RainMachine HD16 and I want to connect the existing rain sensor (Hunter Wireless Rain Clik). However, before doing so, I would like to understand the wiring!
The Hunter Wireless sensor is connected to a RainBird controller which I am replacing. The current wire configuration has 2 yellow wires connected to the AC connectors of the controller, and a blue wire and a white wire connected to the SENS connectors of the controller.
Like in the old setup, I would like the controller to provide the power for the sensor.
I purchased the Rain Sensor cable adapter but I am confused as to how I connect it! I understand where it goes on the controller, but my confusion is the specific wiring.
I read the Rain Sensor article on the RainMachine site and in the #2 - Active Sensor powered by the RainMachine the diagram shows 3 connections going from the sensor to the controller... yet, the Rain Sensor cable adapter only has 2 wires!
I would appreciate some help with the wiring.
