Remove the old sensor or thermostat control board. Situate the new sensor on the centre post directly behind the control box (inside the cabinet) for all incubators

and 2-Door Hatchers. For PX Hatchers, the sensor

will be mounted on the right hand corner post. (This is the same position as the previous PT100 sensor , and the previous thermostat board for electromechanical controls for hatchers.)

If the previous sensor was not mounted in this position (E/M incubators), drill a 3/8 inch (9.5 mm) hole through the roof. Centre the hole with the Centre Post and about 1/8 inch (3 mm) in from the Centre Post.

Drill an appropriate sized hole in the control box. This hole will provide entrance for the sensor wiring. Insert a liquid tight connector (not provided) in the control box hole as well as the roof hole.

Slide the wires up the tube through the liquid tights and into the control box. Attach the probes to the Probe Mounting channel.

Apply silicone around the probe/mounting channel connection – both inside and out.

Centre the Probe Mounting channel on the Centre Post (right hand Centre Post for PX Hatchers) and butt the top of the channel up against the ceiling. Secure with self-drilling screws.

Warning: Disconnect the power from the mains before accessing the inside of the controller.

MONItORING

the 24-hOUR DRy RUN

Prior to use, test the other machine functions (fans and heaters) as usual. The machine should now be given a dry run and monitored for a 24-hour period. This will ensure proper functioning when eggs are loaded.

PRe-RUN

Open the control box. Check to ensure that the interior is clean and free of debris, (especially metal shavings) and all boards are properly seated.

Close the lid and key lock.

temperature and humidity Sensor Set-up

Fill the humidity water reservoir with distilled water. Using distilled water will prevent mineral build up. Replace the stopper to reduce evaporation and con-tamination through the reservoir hole.

Install the wicking (PB4077) on the humidity probe following the directions in the side-box (Installing a Wick).

Ensure that the wick completely covers the probe.

Installing a Wick

Hold the top of the wicking with one hand and gently slide over the ex tended end of the probe. Seat the wicking firmly around the probe. Place the free end of the wicking in the res-ervoir, ensure it does not twist or bend. Any twists or bends will interrupt the flow of water through the wicking.

Warning: Always use wicking (PB4077) which

is 12 inches (30 cm) in length. Incorrectly sized wicking may give inaccurate wet bulb readings.

CONtROlS aND INDICatORS

The following is a brief description of the function and location of each of the controls. The indicators for the alarms and status are also known as LEDs or light emitting diodes. They will be referred to as LEDs in the following text.

Power Switch

The power switch was previously described on page 5.

Common alarm lamp

The Common Alarm lamp is a component of the total alarm system and is described in the Alarm section on page 20.

Fan Switch on the Control Box

The Fan switch on the bottom of the Control box is a grey toggle switch. To turn the fans on, pull the switch towards you.

With the switch in the On position the machine will run

normally. When the fan switch is in the Off position

the fans, heaters, spray valve, damper motor, egg turn air valve (incubator), blower (hatcher) and auxiliary damper (hatcher) are turned off.

In the Incubator

Turning off the fans will also turn off the egg turn solenoid valve. This will cause the racks to turn to the right. When the fans are turned back on, the racks will turn, if necessary, to restore previous turn state.

WaRNING

The Fan switch, in the Off position, removes all

power from inside of the incubator and hatcher. Failure to shut Off the Fan switch, during

cleanup, will possibly expose the operator to a potentially lethal electric charge.

alarm Bypass Switch

The Alarm Bypass switch (the red toggle switch) is a component of the total alarm system and is described on page 21.

Fan Switch

When working with the incubator fans, ensure both fan switches are turned off.

alaRMS

When an alarm is active, it can be identified by three conditions:

1. A red blinking light (LED) adjacent to the alarm icon 2. The red Common Alarm lamp will blink and 3. The alarm will become audible, unless programmed

to remain silent. See page 12.

leDs

Current and active alarms are identified by a red flashing light (LED or light emitting diode) which is situated adjacent to the alarm icon.

The LED will stop blinking and become solid when the alarm condition ends.

To clear the indicator light, press the Alarm Acknowledge (Silence) button.

Exception

When an active Egg Turn Failure alarm is acknowl-edged, the LED will clear immediately.

Common alarm lamp

Each alarm function is indicated by its own LED display. However, these LED’s are not visible from a distance; therefore, all alarm conditions will trigger the Common Alarm lamp to flash. This permits you to identify which machine, in a bank, has caused the alarm.

The Common Alarm lamp may show any of the fol-lowing conditions. The lamp will flash when an alarm is currently or was previously active. This flash will be rapid when the machine has an active alarm that is audible, and will be slow when the machine has an active alarm that is inaudible. The alarm light is continuously lit when the alarm bypass switch is activated.

The Common Alarm lamp can be cleared when no alarms are active by pressing the Alarm Acknowledge (Silence) button.

audible alarms

All alarms have a three-second delay before becom-ing audible. Any or all alarms can be programmed to remain silent. Refer to page 12 for initial Alarm set-up.

Note: On incubators, when turning off fans at

entrance end of machine, there will be a five (5) minute delay before the alarm becomes

audible. This allows enough time to load the machine without having to use the Alarm Bypass switch.

If there is an audible alarm, press the Alarm Acknowledge (Silence) button to temporarily silence alarms. However, if the alarm condition is not corrected within the allotted time, the Audible alarm will sound again. Refer to Alarm Acknowledge on page 26 for further information.

To set the allotted time before an alarm reactivates, refer to Alarm Silence Delay on page 28.

alarm Bypass

The Alarm Bypass switch on the bottom of the control box is a red toggle switch. To bypass an audible alarm, pull the switch towards you. The machine will now remain silent for all alarms and the Common Alarm lamp will remain continuously lit. Alarm Bypass allows you to transfer eggs, pull chicks, or clean the machine without a continuous audible alarm.

The PS501 Multi-Stage control system requires routine

maintenance. Many potential problems can be elimi-nated by following these simple procedures. Generally, system maintenance can be accomplished as part of your downtime during cleaning operations.

Warning: Jamesway recommends that only

qualified electrical personnel service the ma-chines. Some circuits are energized with 220 volts. They will cause serious shocks, injury or death if touched. Before starting mainte-nance, ensure that the Main switch is turned

to Off (0) and the power is locked out at the

distribution panel.

CONtROl BOx

Inspect the hatcher control box once a week, and the incubator control box once a month.

PROCeDURe

Turn the fans off. Turn the Main switch off and ensure the power is locked out at the distribution panel. Check for a build-up of chick down, dust or metal shavings. An excessive build-up of chick down will cause moisture to collect. Moisture may in turn cause the system to short circuit. Carefully vacuum the inside of the control box. It is not recommended that an air hose be used for this procedure.

Examine the boards, wiring, connections and relay contacts for obvious faults such as discolouration and burned or blackened areas. Pay special attention to terminals, connections and relay points.

Once maintenance is complete, and the interior of the control box is thoroughly dry, replace the control box lid. It is absolutely essential that this lid be in place and locked at all times.

Turn the power back on. Turn the fans back on.

teMPeRatURe

aND hUMIDIty SeNSOR

The temperature and humidity sensor requires main-tenance as well as a more scrupulous cleaning once every three months.

Weekly PROCeDURe Reservoir

Clean the water reservoir with detergent and a bottle brush to minimize the build-up of mineral deposits. If necessary, add water to the reservoir. Filling the reser-voir with water may also be required between weekly cleaning. (Jamesway recommends that only distilled water be used.)

Wick

Replace the wick every seven (7) days or more frequently, depending upon the mineral content of the water. Mineral deposits can build up in the wick, resulting in false readings.

to Install a Wick

Hold the top of the wicking with one hand. Gently slide over the extended end of the probe. Seat the wicking firmly around the probe. Place the free end of the wicking into the reservoir, Make sure it does not twist or bend. Any twists or bends will interrupt the flow of water through the wicking. The wicking should be 12 inches (30 cm) in length.

thRee MONth PROCeDURe Probes

Hard water causes the probes to develop lime and cal-cium deposits. To clean the probes remove the probe baffle. Wash the probes in white vinegar or other mild acid solvent; rinse thoroughly with water. Failure to do so may result in probe deterioration. If water quality is poor, probes may require more frequent cleaning. Make sure that the temperature probe baffle is not out of position or damaged. The baffle should be on a horizontal plane to protect the probe from coming into direct contact with the spray or stray water particles.

(38)

CalIBRatION,

GeNeRal CONSIDeRatIONS environment

It is preferred that measurements of both dry and wet bulb temperature calibrations be accomplished during a period when the most stable environment exists. The most stable environment in a Multi-Stage incubator (Space Saver, Conventional Tunnel or Side Door) is 12 hours after setting. A chicken incubator should have six (6) fully loaded racks on each side. A turkey or duck incubator should have four (4) fully loaded racks on each side. The most stable environment in a Hatchcommander is 24 hours after complete setting. In a hatcher, both 2-Door and PX, it is 12 to 24 hours after transferring.

Always calibrate with the fans running and the tem-perature near the normal operating temtem-perature.

equipment

To ensure that this procedure is carried out correctly, you should have:

1. A digital test thermometer of known accuracy with display resolution of 0.1°F (0.05°C), and

2. A probe-holding device as described below. The holding device consists of two short sections of plastic tube taped side-by-side. The larger tube slides over the PS501 probe, while the instrument probe is inserted in the smaller one. Thus, the device effectively holds both sensing probes as close together as possible, without allowing them to touch. You may allow the shaft of the electrotherm to bend in order to obtain this desired closeness.

It is essential that the test thermometer be checked for accuracy regularly.

Procedure

With the two probes lined up and the hand-held ther-mometer read-out installed on the outside of the machine, the check can proceed.

Turn down the humidity setpoint to 80°F. Wait for about 10 minutes to allow both probes to settle and read accurately.

Calibrating the sensor - You may allow the shaft of the electrotherm (red) to bend in order to obtain this desired closeness to the probe.

TemperaTure CalibraTion Machine Sensor

Reading +/- Offset = Corrected actual reading The temperature is calibrated in dry bulb. If the dis-play panel and the test thermometer readings differ by greater than 0.1°F (0.05°C), recalibration is required.

Calibrating the Temperature readout

1. Press the button, the temperature setpoint area will show Fn.

2. Press 1 button, the temperature setpoint area will

show Fn1, the humidity setpoint area will show

the current offset from factory calibration, and the right hand digit in humidity actual area will start to blink.

3. Enter the reading from the electrotherm or calibra-tion thermometer, for example to enter 99.0 press

9 9 0.

4. Press the button to complete the calibration, or press any other command button to cancel calibration.

5. Wait 10 minutes, recheck and readjust, if necessary. When both readings are similar, the calibration procedure is complete.

If the controller displays Err message, then the new

calibration exceeds the maximum allowed offset of 9.9°F (5.5°C) and the machine restores the previous calibration. This usually happens because of incorrect calibration procedure or a faulty temperature probe.

HumidiTy CalibraTion

Machine Sensor

Reading +/- Offset = Corrected actual reading The humidity can be calibrated either as a dry bulb or as a wet bulb.

For wet bulb, insert a separate wick on the electrotherm probe. Allow 10 minutes for the probe to stabilize and read accurately. If the display panel and the test ther-mometer readings differ by greater than 0.1°F (0.05°C), recalibration is required.

Calibrating the Humidity readout

1. Press the button, the temperature setpoint area will show Fn.

2. Press 2 button, the temperature setpoint area will

show Fn2, the humidity setpoint area will show

the current offset from factory calibration, and the right hand digit in humidity actual area will start to blink.

3. Enter the reading from Electrotherm or calibration thermometer, for example to enter 86.2 press 8 6 2.

4. Press the button to complete the calibration, or press any other command button to cancel the calibration.

If the controller displays Err message, then the new

calibration exceeds the maximum allowed offset of 9.9°F (5.5°C) and machine restores previous calibration. This usually happens because of incorrect calibration procedure or faulty humidity probe.

note: If temperature and humidity

measure-ments show excessive differences, that is greater than 0.5°F (0.27°C), a further check, the following day may, be necessary. This allows the eggs more time to adapt to the new set points and the machine to stabilize to normal operational sequences.
