WGL Rain8upb G2 UPB Sprinkler Expansion Module
UPB Sprinkler Zone Expander
Order this item for expanding a Rain8UPBG2 installation by 8 zone increments. Includes a 10004 network cable. Everything you need for adding 8 more zones.
Caution, do not order this module for expanding an older version Rain8UPB (ie: not a G2).
The master module (shown to the right) is the first 8-zone module in a UPB installation and the only one that connects directly to a PIM and a 24VAC transformer. Additional modules may be daisy chained for those large installations.
- Turn on or off each zone individually
- Turn off all zones on all modules
- Get the current status of any zone
- Optional default run timer for each zone to prevent over watering
There is a single RS232 connection between the UPB PIM and the Master Rain8.
The 24VAC power and network communications are transferred from master to slave-to-slave etc.
The network connection for the slave units is an 8 conductor RJ45. Each slave has a pair of these modular jacks to pass on data and power to the next one in a daisy chain. Each slave also has a RS232 connection that is used only to assign the address and setup default run timers during the initial configuration.

The Rain8UPB is a modular 8-zone sprinkler controller module that can be an integral component of any UPB installation. It is capable of driving standard 24VAC irrigation valves directly.
