FD-TURF Field Decoders

for SiteControl and ESP-LXD Decoder Systems


Rain Bird Field Decoders provide easy, cost-effective installation and expansion for SiteControl Decoder or ESP-LXD Decoder Central Control Systems. Decoders are installed out of sight to help protect them from the elements and vandalism.

Select different decoders to operate one, two, four, or six valves/solenoids. Five different decoders let you choose the amount of control you need.
