Large Decoder Interface (LDI) and Small Decoder Interface (SDI)

SiteControl Only

The LDI/SDI Two-Wire Decoder Interface serves as an interface between the Central Controller and Rain Bird field and sensor decoders on the SiteControl System.

 

 

 

  • Large Decoder Interface (LDI) and the Small Decoder Interface (SDI) serve as an interface between the central controller and Rain Bird commercial field and sensor decoders
  • Rain Bird field and sensor decoders include - FD-101, FD-102, FD-202, FD-401, FD-601, SD-210
  • LDI can interface with up to 500 decoder addresses and can activate up to 1,000 solenoids (specific performance depends on system design – please consult Rain Bird Decoder Design Guide).
  • SDI can interface with up to 200 decoder addresses and can activate up to 400 solenoids (specific performance depends on system design – please consult Rain Bird Decoder Design Guide).
  • LDI and SDI come standard with terminals for 4 wire paths.
  • Up to 200 total pulse and 200 static (switch) sensors can be set up per system with a maximum of 10 sensor decoders per SDI or LDI (specific capacity on SDI or LDI wire paths depends on system design).
  • Ground the two wire path at the SDI or LDI decoder interface using a Rain Bird MSP-1 surge protector.
  • Ground the two wire path every 500’ using an LSP-1 Line Surge Protector or the LSP-1 that is built into an FD-401 or FD-601 field decoder.
  • All LDIs and SDIs shall be grounded to a 10-ohm or less earth ground.
  • LDI and SDI are UL and CE listed
  • Flow sensors used in a decoder system do not require the use of a pulse transmitter.
  • Three-year trade warranty.
