Model 3200 - Base Station


The BaseStation 3200 irrigation controller is the most advanced smart irrigation controller available today because it offers irrigation and landscape management tools that are unmatched by any controller on the market. Additionaly, it will save you time, money, and water.

Reliable Technology, Powerful Tools

Baseline's BaseStation 3200 irrigation controller is at the pinnacle of intelligent irrigation systems. It supports Baseline’s patented two-wire technology and conventional wire and retrofit solutions. Plus, the advanced flow management features, flexible communication options, and industry leading water management solutions give you the tools you need to manage even the most complex sites. The BaseStation 3200 and Baseline’s soil moisture sensors measure the effects of evapotranspiration (ET) in the root zone of the plant and use those readings to water better than any other irrigation system. The BaseStation 3200 could help you to reduce water use by up to 62 percent or more.
Each BaseStation 3200 provides powerful management tools like controller-level tiered security passcodes, comprehensive diagnostic tools and reports, on-screen soil moisture graphs, programming and watering history backup and exporting and more.

Control Anytime, Anywhere

Every BaseStation 3200 is compatible with Baseline's, LiveView, BaseManager 2.0 central control and Baseline's Mobile Access mobile web-based remote control solution. The BaseStation 3200 can even integrate into a building management system through BaseManager and Baseline’s BACnet Manager. Every BaseStation 3200 is Ethernet ready out of the box with a built-in ethernet port.  Connecting to LiveView and BaseManager is often simply plug-and-play. With Baseline, you may never need to talk to an IT guy again. The BaseStation 3200 is also compatible with other communication options like Wi-Fi, Cell Modem, and Spread Spectrum Radio.

  • Supports up to 8 normally open and/or normally closed master valves and/or pump starts for the entire system
  • Supports up to 8 temperature sensors, which monitor and control program operation from temperature thresholds – operations include start, pause, or stop a program based on high or low temperature thresholds
  • Supports a maximum of 252 addressed devices
  • Concurrently operates up to 15 typical solenoids over two-wire or up to 6 typical solenoids over conventional wire per 12 Station Powered biCoder
  • Supports program prioritization and progression to allow control of which landscape areas get watered first, and/or to prioritize water rations during restricted water allocations
  • Supports water source prioritization and intelligent secondary water source management to control which water sources are used first
  • Supports empty and full indicators from moisture sensors and switches to optimize management of cisterns, ponds, rainwater catchment and other water storage systems
  • Supports a settable wait time after an empty condition is met
  • Supports per-program prioritized daily water rationing across multiple water sources
  • Supports  Intelligent Soak Cycles to prioritize cycles for zones that have already started to water over zones that have not started
  • Automatically stacks overlapping programs. The system can run any number of programs concurrently if permitted by the concurrent zone settings.
  • Learns the actual flow for each zone when one or more flow meters are configured in the system
  • Executes high-flow or low-flow shutdowns based on total system flow or per flow meter by mainline
  • Intelligently schedules watering based on available flow to maximize concurrent valve operation and minimize total water time by mainline
  • Displays real-time flow updated every 15 seconds when watering (Note: Older flow devices will read flow every 60 seconds)
  • Runs a diagnostic test weekly on normally open master valves to help prevent a normally open master valve from “sticking” open
  • Detects and repairs all address conflicts for devices that are connected to the two-wire from the controller
  • Supports full two-way communication with all devices, monitors two-wire voltage and communication integrity, solenoid voltages,  current, and status (open/short/OK)
  • Search for and identify all devices connected to the two-wire and list them according to device type and serial number

Programmable Features

  • Program up to 8 start times per program in 5-minute increments
  • Program the run times for zones from 1 minute to 23 hours 59 minutes
  • Program the day intervals in even days, odd days, or odd days excluding the 31st, programmable day interval
  • Create a custom 7-day calendar
  • Create a historical calendar with customizable half-months intervals
  • Program unique soak and cycle times (Intelligent Soak Cycles) for each zone or scheduling group. Cycle times and Soak times can be programmed between 0 minutes and 23 hours 59 minutes.
  • Specify hours during each day of the week when water can or cannot be applied (Water Windows) in 1-hour increments for each 24-hour period
  • Assign advanced irrigation modes (such as timed, primary, soil moisture based, or linked) to each zone
  • Manually enter a design flow for each zone, with or without an installed flow meter
  • Manually or automatically configure soil moisture thresholds and make irrigation decisions based on those thresholds

  • Manually start or stop a program
  • Address two-wire decoders (biCoders) by serial number by assigning each zone address a device serial number
  • Re-address any two-wire decoder (biCoder) from the controller by re-assigning the device’s serial number to a new zone address
  • Assign any station  or terminal number on a multi-station biCoder from the controller to any zone address in any order
  • Back up and restore all programming and historical data with any USB flash drive
