Cary, NC, 27511

Press release date: January 29, 2010

Hunter Industries has introduced a hard-wired version of its popular Wireless Rain/Freeze-Clik(TM) sensor, combining both a rain and freeze sensor into a single, price-competitive unit.

Designed for irrigation professionals who prefer wired sensor installations, the new Rain/Freeze-Clik sensor also meets local regulations where both a rain and freeze sensor are required, such as in the Dallas, Texas, area. Combining a rain and freeze sensor into one unit eliminates the need for separate sensors and installations. Like Hunter's Rain-Clik sensor, the new Rain/Freeze-Clik uses Hunter's innovative and unique Quick Response(TM) feature, designed to shut the irrigation system down as soon as it begins to rain. No other sensor offers this feature.

Other features and benefits of Hunter's new hard-wired Rain/Freeze-Clik include:
o Quick and easy installation on most irrigation controllers. Hunter's hard-wired Rain/Freeze-Clik comes with a standard metal extension arm and 25 feet of wire. An optional metal gutter mount (part #SGM) can also be used for gutter installations.
o Automatic freeze alert. The freeze sensor shuts off the irrigation system when temperatures fall below 37 degrees Fahrenheit, reducing the potential for ice to form on landscapes, walkways or roadways.
o No calibration or adjustment needed. The freeze sensor, enclosed in a polycarbonate housing attached to the bottom of the Rain-Clik sensor, does not require calibration or adjustment. Slots in the side of the housing allow air to flow around the sensor for accurate temperature sensing.

Hunter's hard-wired Rain/Freeze-Clik sensor is now available for shipment.

Hunter Industries is one of the world's leading manufacturers of irrigation equipment for the landscape and golf course industries.
