Trying to repair a board for an irrigation controller. This part has no id i can see. It is cylindrical, silver 5.8mm x 1.7mm dia., pin type. The board has Y2 . Anyway to id from this info. May be a crystal or oscillator. Thanks
I concur with MG Cooper above. No picture but a small silver cylinder marked Y2 is probably a timing crystal for the sprinkler. 32.768 kHz is quite common, but it can be other frequencies. If the sprinkler is controlled by "atomic time" (i.e., WWVB in the US), then it might be 60 kHz.
EDIT: Just noticed the TS post date. Problem has hopefully been solved by now. In any event, in my part of the world, we have stopped watering our yards until the Spring.
