Rain Bird® ESP-TM Series
Dual Program Hybrid Irrigation Controllers

Primary Applications:

Incorporating all the proven features of the ESP Series, the ESP-TM series of hybrid irrigation controllers is a prime example of making a good thing better. With their slim line cabinets, ESP-TM irrigation controllers are as attractive to look at as they are simple to use.

And, they boast a number of water-saving features simply not found on competitively priced units. Dual programming eliminates over watering one area in order to maintain another. Watering time flexibility is further enhanced by two-, three- and five-day fixed watering cycles or a seven-day variable cycle. Best of all, water budgeting can alter all watering times from 10 to 200 percent with just a single touch.

The ESP-TM Series from Rain Bird. Simplicity at its finest.
