I haven't used that model. I have only used the burkert. If you choose the burkert from aquariumplants.com, they will install the cord for you for $10ish, or there is a diy on this forum or on barr report that shows you how to install it. From what I have read that is a great solenoid. I haven't had any problems, and I don't think it's much more than the one you are looking at. Good luck!
