I have an old rain bird rc 7bi controller and I want to upgrade it to b hyve 57946. For the wiring, besides the zones and common wires, what do I need to connect to the new controller? In the old controller, I have two wires (white/red and white/brown) for transformer and one wire (white/orange) for master/pump start. Thanks

Occasionally for some reason this site delays posting questions. Today is the first I've seen this post.

The new controller has the transformer built in. and you'll need AC power. Either it is direct wired or an AC outlet is needed to plug the controller in. If you are using a pump, connect the MV lead and common to the motor start relay. If on city water mostly it is not used unless there is a master valve. The rest is simple common and one zone wire to each irrigation solenoid.

Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
