Product Description

Make Your Investment Work Smarter

You can’t be everywhere at once. The Rain Bird® Integrated Control System (IC System) changed the remote irrigation game and continues to offer intelligent benefits other systems can’t match. Connect your Central Control directly to rotors and valves to streamline installations, check diagnostics and troubleshoot from anywhere via smartphone, tablet or computer. Make the smarter choice with IC System for powerful, precise property management.

  • Intelligent Communication

    In an easy-to-use design, IC CONNECT™ simplifies course management. Collect crucial data from the field and centralize control of greens fans, lighting, fountains and water features.

  • Intuitive Connection

    Your Central Control directly connects to your rotors and valves and minimizes complexities, simplifies troubleshooting, saves on labor costs and improves aesthetics by eliminating satellites and hubs from your course.

  • Instant Confidence

    Advanced two-way communication from the field to your Central Control catches issues before they become problems and provides assurance your system is working–so you can focus on success.

Upgrade to Instant Communication with the IC System.

Easier to Install. Simple to Maintain.

IC System eliminates the most common challenges of traditional systems. Less wire and fewer components means you have less to buy, install, maintain and troubleshoot.  

IC System Simplicity

The Complications of Competitive Two-Wire Systems

More components mean more parts can fail, including hubs and satellites. These complications can lead to expensive issues when something goes wrong. In other words, satellites on the course can create extra failure points.

IC System Simplicity


With an Integrated Control Module (ICM) built into every IC Rotor and Valve, the Rain Bird IC System gives you unrivaled two-way communication everywhere on your course.

  • Up to 90% less wire
  • Test over 1,000 stations in 45 seconds
  • Add components wherever there is MAXI Cable
