ESP-LXD Series Two-Wire Decoder Controllers

50 – 200 station capable Two-Wire Decoder Commercial Controller

The ESP-LXD controller has been designed to maintain the look, feel and ease of programming of the ESP-LXME controller but with an interface to a two-wire path for decoder-based irrigation. The ESP-LXD controller can manage up to 50 stations but can easily be expanded for use with up to 200 stations. Flow Management is also built into every ESP-LXD controller.
