Gardena Programming Unit

by Gardena
SKU 1242-20


Programming made easy

The GARDENA Programming Unit serves the automatic control of Irrigation Control Systems or larger Sprinklersystems, and is therefore ideally suited for use in areas without power connection. It is ideally suited for when the water quantity is insufficient for simultaneously operating the entire system – comprising several irrigation systems. Also with varying water requirements of individual plant areas, the GARDENA Programming Unit controls the individual watering intervals per pipe and thereby allows individual and optimal irrigation.
The GARDENA Programming Unit serves the programming of the GARDENA Controller.
