Toro Evolution Controller Features & Benefits

Revolutionary Interface

  • The Evolution™ controller’s user interface was designed with the customer in mind. Shortcut buttons provide quick access to basic functions while the advanced menu leverages the experience and knowledge of the irrigation professional, all shown on a graphics display that navigates similar to many modern consumer electronic devices
  • Easy Upgrade to Integrated Smart Control
  • An optional Smart Connector™ plugs into the timing mechanism, enabling it to wirelessly communicate directly with a number of add-on devices — including a weather sensor, handheld remote, multiple soil sensors, and up to two wireless relays.
  • Computer-programmable with USB Drive
  • Simple-to-use software allows you to program everything at a computer. Use a standard USB drive to transfer programming to one or more controllers in a matter of seconds. The USB drive also provides controller logging functionality to save an operation log for diagnostic purposes
