The Toro EVOLUTION® Series Controller is a one-of-a-kind irrigation controller designed to help you meet your residential and light commercial customers’ needs. Modular between 4 and 16 stations, the EVOLUTION controller features a unique and intuitive menu system that delivers straightforward programming and easy-to-understand prompts. Shortcut buttons provide quick access to basic irrigation functions, while the advanced menu makes available specialised features, such as Grow In schedules, an Auxiliary schedule for accessories, and delayed starts between zones.

Pairing the EVOLUTION Series Controller with a Smart Connect plug-in receiver will allow wireless connectivity to water saving accessories, such as an ET-based Weather Sensor and Precision™ Soil Sensor.

Wireless Connectivity

When paired with a Smart Connect receiver (sold separately), the EVOLUTION Series controller is able to communicate wirelessly to a series of powerful and water saving accessories, including the ET-based Weather Sensor, Precision™ Soil Sensor, Auxiliary Relay, Handheld Remote, or SMRT Logic. SMRT Logic is a unique internet gateway that allows cloud-based control of your landscape through the SMRT Scape™ website or app.

Backlit LCD Display

The EVOLUTION Series controller features a backlit LCD display that makes programming the controller and making adjustments in the future easy and straightforward. The multi-lingual display can be set to one of six different languages.

Station Count Flexibility

Available 4- (EMOD-4) or 12- (EMOD-12) station expansion modules are designed for fast and secure customising of the EVOLUTION Series controller’s station count. The expansion modules are hot-swappable.

Wireless Weather Sensor Add-On Device

Uses live temperature and solar measurements as well as historical weather data for your location to calculate the amount of water needed from the irrigation system.

Handheld Remote Add-On Device

Backlit display makes maintenance checks a snap, day or night, allowing you to run sprinklers or schedules from up to 305 m away.

Precision™ Soil Sensor Add-On Device

Up to three soil sensors can be used (one per schedule) to monitor the moisture level in the soil and prevent over- and underwatering. With up to a 152 m wireless range, there’s no digging required to install.

Powerful Transformer

The 1.25 amp transformer is capable of powering up to four solenoids simultaneously.

Schedule Adjustment

Reduce or increase irrigation runtimes between -95% and +150% of your schedule. Adjustments can be applied across the entire schedule or individual stations. Irrigation can also be manually delayed to the next scheduled start or by up to fourteen days.
