3 Basic Operating Principle
3.1 Compressor control
After controller powered on, the compressor will delay for a moment to protect itself (F21). The indicator light will flicker at the same time. If checked external input is alarming, the compressor will stop.
3.2 Fan control
Fan default under control of condensing temperature. It will open when temperature is higher than (including) set point (F42) , closed when lower than the set point – return difference (F43) . If condensation sensor fails, the fan output along with the compressor.
3.3 External alarm
When external alarm occurs, stop the compressor and fan. External alarm signal has 5 modes (F50): 0: without external alarm, 1: always open, unlocked, 2: always open, locked; 3: always closed, unlocked; 4: always closed, locked. “Always open” means in normal state, external alarm signal is open, if closed, the controller is alarm; “Always closed” is on the contrary. “Locked” means that when external alarm signal becomes normal, the controller is still in the alarm state, and it needs to press any key to resume.
In order to prevent irrespective persons from changing the parameters, you can set a password (F80), and if you have set a password, the controller will hint you to enter the password after you press the key “M” for 5 seconds, you must enter the correct password, and then you can set the parameters. If you don’t need the password, you can set F80 to “0000”. Notice that you must remember the password, and if you forget the password, you can not enter the set state.
Please use the temperature sensor allocated by our company.
If compressor power is less than 1.5HP, can direct control by internal relay. Otherwise need to connect ac contactor.
Fan loaded with no more than 200w.
