SECTION I
INTRODUCTION
The Phase 3 computerized system is a fully programmable, highly sophisticated dryer control system. ADC has
designed the Phase 3 to be the most versatile and reliable coin-op control system available.
To eliminate as many moving parts as possible, ALL Phase 3 programming is done through the membrane
switch on the front of the control panel. The switch (PS) that puts the computer into the program mode is a
single, sealed, military specification toggle switch. This toggle switch (PS) eliminates the possibility of switch
failure due to an accumulation of lint or moisture.
PHASE 3 FEATURES
Programmable
Changes in programs are made at the temperature selection keyboard (touch pad), and actual programs are
displayed for verification.
Adjustable Time
Programmable from a minimum of 1 minute to a maximum of 99 minutes in 1 minute increments.
Coin Acceptor Denominations
Values of the coin acceptors are programmable from a minimum of 1 to a maximum value of 9999 for any U.S.
or foreign coin denomination.
Amount To Start
Programmable from a minimum value of 1 to a maximum value of 9999 in increments of one (1).
Accumulative Time
This program yields a specific value of time for any coin entry made after the “Amount To Start” has been
inserted.
Accumulative Coin
This program selection requires that a specific value of coin(s) be inserted for additional time, programmable for
any minimum amount.
Coin Count
The number of coins inserted, including a separate display program for optional dual coin acceptors, can be
viewed through the Phase 3 computer’s light emitting diode (L.E.D.) display.
4
Bad Coin Lockout
Each coin entry is monitored. Should someone tamper with the coin acceptor or attempt to insert a foreign
object, the microprocessor controller (computer) will “LOCK UP” and will not accept any entries until the reset
time has elapsed (approximately 15-seconds). Once the reset time has expired, the microprocessor controller
(computer) will automatically reset itself for the next coin entry.
Temperature Conversion
When the temperature conversion status is changed (i.e., from ºF to ºC), the microprocessor controller (computer)
will automatically convert ALL temperature related programs/parameters from Fahrenheit to Celsius and vice
versa. The microprocessor controller (computer) will perform this conversion within 2º Celsius. The programs
affected are:
1. Temperature Display Mode
2. Temperature Selections
3. Cool Down Temperatures
Drying Temperatures
Any of the three (3) temperature selections (HI/LO/PP) are programmable from a minimum of 100º F (38º C)
to a maximum of 190º F (88º C) in ten-degree increments or from a minimum 35º C (95º F) to a maximum of
90º C (194º F) in five-degree increments. Actual temperature programs are displayed at time of programming
for verification.
Cool Down Time
ALL three (3) temperature selections are programmable from a minimum of 0 to a maximum of 9 minutes in 1
minute increments.
Cool Down Temperatures
In the automatic or free dry modes, the cool down cycle termination is programmable from a minimum of 100º F
(38º C) to a maximum of 190º F (88º C) in ten-degree increments or, from a minimum of 35º C (95º F) to a
maximum of 90º C (194º F) in five-degree increments.
Automatic Mode
This program will cycle the dryer off when the preprogrammed dryness level (1 to 99) or maximum cutoff time
(Adrt) (1 to 99 minutes) has been reached, whichever comes first.
5
Antiwrinkle
This program selection helps keep permanent press items wrinkle free, when they are not removed from the
dryer promptly at the end of the drying and cooling cycle. The owner programs the dryer to automatically restart
in the cool down cycle, if the clothes are not removed in a preprogrammed amount of time. The Antiwrinkle
Program settings are:
1. Guard Delay Time ---------- 1 to 9 minutes
2. Guard On Time ------------- 1 to 99-seconds
3. Active Guard Time --------- 1 to 99 minutes
Free Dry Mode
In this program mode, the computer automatically reverts to the automatic mode. However, no coins are
required to start the dryer.
Light Emitting Diode (L.E.D.) Flash Display
Programmable to allow the L.E.D. readout to display a choice of “FILL” (no cycle in progress), “Amount To
Start” (i.e., 25¢), or in the case of free dry, “FrEE.” This program selection also allows the L.E.D. display to
flash back and forth every 2-seconds from “FILL” to “Amount To Start” or, in the case of free dry, from “FILL”
to “FrEE.”
Audible Tone
In this program selection, a buzzer (tone) will sound for each coin inserted, program entry, or at the end of the
drying cycle and cooling cycle for a period of 5-seconds to indicate that the cycle is complete. Additionally, when
in the Antiwrinkle program, the buzzer (tone) will sound for 5-seconds at the end of the “Guard On Time.”
Temperature Display
This program selection enables the temperature in the dryer to be viewed (ºF or ºC) either while the dryer is off
or running. This service feature shows that the dryer is maintaining the selected temperature.
Diagnostics
ALL major circuits, including door, microprocessor temperature sensor, heat, and motor circuits are monitored.
Battery Backup (Optional)
This feature allows the microprocessor controller (computer) to maintain its operating status should a momentary
power interruption occur while the dryer cycle is in progress.
6
SECTION II
INSTALLATION PROCEDURES
A. INSTALLATION
The dryer is mounted on a skid by four (4) bolts. The front two (2) bolts are located on the floor of the lint
compartment. The other two (2) are located on the base at the rear of the dryer.
NOTE: Always keep the dryer in an upright position.
B. LOCATION OF THE DRYER
Approximately 2 feet (0.609 meters) should be allowed at the rear of the dryer for the duct and for ease of
maintenance. The dryer should be level. The four (4) legs are adjustable. (Refer to the illustration below for
details). Other factors to keep in mind include the following:
1. The main duct of the dryer must be tapered.
2. The minimum increase in cross section area for each 6-inch (15.24 cm) duct added is 45 square inches
(290.32 square centimeters) and 75 square inches (483.87 square centimeters) for each 8-inch (20.32 cm)
duct added.
3. Ducts should enter the main duct at the bottom or on the side at no more than a 45º angle.
4. Each exhaust duct should enter the main duct at least 34-inches (86.36 cm) apart.
5. The dryer must be installed with a proper exhaust duct connection to the outside.
6. The dryer must be installed with provisions for adequate combustion and make-up air supply.
7
CAUTION: This dryer produces combustible lint and must be exhausted to the outdoors. Every 6
months, inspect the exhaust ducting and remove any lint build up.
C. DRYER ENCLOSURE
Bulkheads and partitions should be made of noncombustible materials.
D. AIR INTAKE
Make-up air will effect drying time, efficiency, and fire safety margins. Make-up air openings from an outside
source should be two (2) to three (3) times the cross section area of the exhaust on gas and electric dryers, and
four (4) to five (5) times the area for steam dryers. The dryer must be installed with provisions for adequate
combustion and make-up air supply.
E. EXHAUST DUCTING
Whenever possible, exhaust each dryer separately. Never reduce the air outlet diameter of the dryer.
Avoid 90º right angle turns in the ducting. Where turns are necessary, use 45º or 30º angles instead.
Avoid any screw or object that would protrude inside the exhaust duct and create a lint build up.
DO NOT use screws or caps on exhaust.
If the exhaust duct goes through the roof, it may be protected from the weather by using a 180º turn to point the
opening downward. If it goes through the wall, use a 90º turn to point the opening downward. (Refer to the
illustration below.) The dryer must be installed with a proper exhaust duct connection to the outside.
CAUTION: This dryer produces combustible lint and must be exhausted to the outdoors.
8
F. COMMON MAIN DUCT
When individual exhaust is impossible, a common main duct may be used. However, strict attention must be
given to the construction of the duct to insure proper exhaust and to prevent restrictions in the airflow. (Refer to
the illustrations below.)
G. ELECTRIC DRYERS
Insure that the power supply is sufficient to operate the dryer. Low voltage and amperage will cause poor
drying, overheated motors, poor relay function, and reduced fire safety margins.
Electrical connections should only be made by qualified personnel.
NOTE: Only copper cable of proper size should be used on these dryers. The use of aluminum wire
VOIDS THE WARRANTY.
9
H. GAS DRYERS
ALL dryers are provided with 1/2” gas lines. Consult your local gas supplier for correct line size and pressure.
The built in regulator provides 3.5 inches (8.7 mb) water column (W.C.) at the manifold for natural gas. Liquid
propane (L.P.) gas must be regulated in line by the supplier to 10.5 inches (26.1 mb) water column. A shutoff
valve should be installed at the rear of the dryer for easy servicing and safety. Gas connections should only
be made by qualified personnel.
I. GAS FLAME ADJUSTMENT
Dryers are equipped at the factory with the correct orifice and are adjusted for proper performance. Should
further adjustment be needed, rotate the air adjustment plate until yellow flame is at a minimum.
IMPORTANT: Test ALL connections for gas leaks by brushing on a soapy solution (liquid detergent
works well).
WARNING: NEVER TEST FOR GAS LEAKS WITH A FLAME!!!
J. STEAM DRYERS (LOW-PRESSURE)
Low-pressure steam (10-15 psig [0.69-1.03 bars]) has a minimum push through the systems, therefore, the
following is recommended for 3 to 7 dryers:
1. 3” main steam line
2. 2” return line
3. 1” line from main line to each dryer
4. 1” line from dryer to return lines
Piping should be installed with good commercial steam system practices. (Refer to the illustration below.)
10
An impulse trap and filter should be installed at each dryer. After 1 or 2 days of operation, the following
maintenance should be performed:
1. Pressure should be 10-15 psig (0.69-1.03 bars).
2. Filter and traps should be clean and operational.
3. There should be proper flow of steam and condensate.
4. There should be sufficient make-up air to the heat exchanger.
5. The dryer should be properly exhausted.
K. STEAM DRYERS (HIGH-PRESSURE)
A high-pressure steam dryer is similar to a low-pressure one, but has a 125 psig (8.6 bars) maximum. Maintenance
is the same. Each coil is supplied by a 1” inlet and the outlet is a 1-2” line.
L. BASKET (TUMBLER)
The basket (tumbler) is adjusted at the factory. However, handling in shipment could cause misalignment. If
adjustment is necessary, follow the instructions in the service manual.
BASKET (TUMBLER) COATING
The basket (tumbler) is treated with a protective coating. We suggest dampening old garments or cloth material
with a solution of water and nonflammable mild detergent and tumbling them in the basket (tumbler) to remove
this coating.
M. GROUNDING
Computer dryers should be individually grounded. A copper or brass stake driven into the ground is the best
grounding method.
The dryer and its individual shutoff valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any
pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
The dryer must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual shutoff valve
during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psig (3.5
kPa).

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
NOTE: Unless otherwise specified at the time of ordering, the Phase 3 microprocessor controller
(computer) has been programmed by the factory with the parameters shown on page 47 and
page 48. Should program changes be found necessary, please read this manual carefully to
thoroughly familiarize yourself with the Phase 3 programming characteristics.
A. TIMED MODE
1. When turning on power or when no cycle is in progress, the light emitting diode (L.E.D.) display will read
“FILL” and/or “Amount To Start” (“AtSt”).
2. Insert coin(s). Once the correct “Amount To Start” has been inserted, the L.E.D. display will read “PUSH.”
3. Select temperature by pushing “HI TEMP,” “LO TEMP,” or “PERM PRESS.” The dryer will start, and
the L.E.D. display will read the temperature cycle selected and the drying time.
4. The dryer will continue through the drying and cooling cycles, showing time counting downward.
NOTE: If the door is opened during a cycle, both the heat and motor will stop. However, the Phase 3
microprocessor controller (computer) will continue to count down in time. Continuation of the
cycle will resume only after the door has been closed and any one of three (3) temperature
selection buttons is again depressed.
5. Upon completion of the drying and cooling cycles, the buzzer (tone) will sound, and the L.E.D. display will
read “donE” for 5-seconds, at which time the dryer will shut off.
NOTE: If the Antiwrinkle Program is active (“Grd”), the L.E.D. display will remain reading “donE,”
and the Phase 3 microprocessor controller (computer) will proceed through the Antiwrinkle
Program until the maximum “Guard On Time” has expired or until the door is opened,
whichever comes first. The L.E.D. display will read “FILL” and/or “Amount To Start”
(“AtSt”).
NOTE: If the Antiwrinkle Program is not active (“nGrd”), the L.E.D. display will read “donE” until the
main door is opened, at which time the L.E.D. display will read “FILL” and/or “Amount To
Start” (“AtSt”).
B. AUTOMATIC MODE
1. When turning on power or when no cycle is in progress, the L.E.D. display will read “FILL” and/or
“Amount To Start” (“AtSt”).
2. Insert coin(s). Once correct “Amount To Start” has been inserted, the L.E.D. display will read “PUSH.”
13
3. Select temperature by pushing “HI TEMP,” “LO TEMP,” or “PERM PRESS.” The dryer will start, the
light emitting diode (L.E.D.) display will read the temperature cycle selected, and the drying time portion of
the L.E.D. display will read “00” and count upward as time elapses.
NOTE: If the door is opened during a cycle, both the heat and motor will stop. However, the Phase 3
microprocessor controller (computer) will continue to count upwards in time. Continuation of
the cycle will resume only after the door has been closed and any one of the three (3)
temperature selection buttons is again depressed.
4. Once the preprogrammed dryness level and cool down period have been reached or the maximum automatic
time has expired, whichever comes first, the buzzer (tone) will sound, and the L.E.D. display will read
“donE” for 5-seconds, at which time the dryer will shut off.
NOTE: If the Antiwrinkle Program is active (“Grd”), the L.E.D. display will remain reading “donE,”
and the Phase 3 microprocessor controller (computer) will proceed through the Antiwrinkle
Program until the maximum “Guard On Time” has expired or until the door is opened,
whichever comes first. The L.E.D. display will read “FILL” and/or “Amount To Start”
(“AtSt”).
NOTE: If the Antiwrinkle Program is not active (“nGrd”) the L.E.D. display will read “donE” until the
main door is opened, at which time the L.E.D. display will read “FILL” and/or “Amount To
Start.”
C. FREE DRY MODE
1. When turning on power or when no cycle is in progress, the L.E.D. display will read “FILL” and/or
“FrEE.”
2. Select temperature. The dryer will start, the L.E.D. display will read the temperature cycle selected, and
the drying portion of the L.E.D. display will read “00” and count upwards as time elapses.
NOTE: If the door is opened during a cycle, both the heat and motor will stop. However, the Phase 3
microprocessor controller (computer) will continue to count upwards in time. Continuation of
the cycle will resume only after the door has been closed and any one of the three (3)
temperature selection buttons is again depressed.
3. Once the preprogrammed dryness level and cool down period has been reached or the maximum automatic
time has expired, whichever comes first, the buzzer (tone) will sound, and the L.E.D. display will read
“donE” for 5-seconds, at which time the dryer will shut off.
NOTE: If the Antiwrinkle Program is active (“Grd”), the L.E.D. display will remain reading “donE,” and
the Phase 3 microprocessor controller (computer) will proceed through the Antiwrinkle Program
until the maximum “Guard On Time” has expired or until the door is opened, whichever comes
first. The L.E.D. display will read “FILL” and/or “Amount To Start” (“AtSt”).
NOTE: If the Antiwrinkle Program is not active (“nGrd”) the L.E.D. display will read “donE” until the
main door is opened, at which time the L.E.D. display will read “FILL” and/or “Amount To
Start.”

SECTION V
PROGRAM SELECTIONS
NOTE: Programs are stored in the computer memory and are cataloged as program locations (PL).
Temperature Display Mode
By closing the Program Switch (PS), the display will read the temperature in the dryer in either Fahrenheit or
Celsius, depending on how the PL01 temperature conversion status is set. The temperature display mode can
be activated while the dryer is in the operating cycle or off. While in the operating cycle, the circuit indicators
are visible for troubleshooting purposes.
NOTE: The dryer cannot be started while the computer program switch (PS) is closed unless the
cycle was already in progress.
Right Coin Count (rCC)
For models equipped with the optional dual coin acceptor, by closing the program switch and pushing the “HI
TEMP” keyboard (touch pad) selection button, the amount of coins inserted through the right coin slot of the coin
acceptor can be viewed through the light emitting diode (L.E.D.) display. The computer memory will retain a
running count of up to 9999 coins and can be cleared (CrCC) by following the program procedure on page 26.
Left Coin Count (LCC)
The number of coins inserted for a single coin acceptor dryer or in the case of a dual coin acceptor, the left coin
slot can be viewed through the L.E.D. display by closing the program switch and pushing the “LO TEMP”
keyboard (touch pad) selection button. The computer memory will retain a running count of up to 9999 coins and
can be cleared (CLCC) by following the procedure on page 27.
PL01 - Temperature Conversion Status
This program controls whether the temperature-related programs will be operated in Fahrenheit or Celsius.
Programs affected are:
1. Temperature display mode
2. Selection cycling temperatures
3. Cool down temperatures
Automatic Mode
When this parameter (“AUtO”) is selected, the dryer will run for a preset level of dryness (PL02) or until the
programmed automatic maximum time (PL14) has expired.
15
At the end of the drying cycle, the dryer will go into the cool down cycle for the time period programmed (PL04,
PL06, or PL08) or until the temperature has dropped to the programmed cool down temperature (PL04, PL06,
or PL08).
NOTE: Due to humidity, atmospheric pressure, percentage of extraction, etc., the desired dryness level
may vary. It is suggested that the owner determine which level of dryness (90% to 100%) is
best suited for his/her application by experimenting with a few test loads.
Timed Mode (tInE)
When this parameter is selected (“tInE”) and the Phase 3 microprocessor controller (computer) has been
activated, the dryer will continue to run until the preset time, including the cool down period (PL04, PL06, or
PL08), has elapsed, at which time the dryer will cycle off or go into the optional Antiwrinkle Program.
Antiwrinkle Program (Grd)
This feature can be used in conjunction with any of the three (3) operating modes (Coin Mode, Auto Mode, or
the Free Dry Mode). In this program (“Grd”), when the drying and cooling cycles are completed, the dryer will
shut off, the tone will sound, and the light emitting diode (L.E.D.) display will read “donE.” If the door is not
opened, the Phase 3 microprocessor controller (computer) will wait until the “Guard Delay Time” (PL15) has
expired, at which time the clothes will be tumbled (without heat) for the programmed “Guard On Time” (PL15).
The Phase 3 microprocessor controller (computer) will repeat the process until the programmed “Active Guard
Time” (PL16) has expired or until the dryer door is opened, at which time the L.E.D. display will read “FILL”
and/or “Amount To Start” (“AtSt”), or “FILL” and/or “FrEE.”
Buzzer/Tone (bUZ)
With the Antiwrinkle Program active, the option is available to have the buzzer/tone (“bUZ”) sound for a period
of 5-seconds at the end of each “Guard On Time” cycle.
Free Dry Mode (FrEE)
The Phase 3 microprocessor controller (computer) can be programmed to run without the insertion of coins.
When the Phase 3 microprocessor controller (computer) is set in the “FrEE” dry mode, it reverts to the “AUtO”
(Automatic) Mode.
Coin Mode (Coin)
In this program (“Coin”), coins are required to start the dryer, even if the Phase 3 microprocessor controller
(computer) is set in the Automatic Mode.
Flash Display Status (FLS)
When the Phase 3 microprocessor controller (computer) is set in this program status (“FLS”), it allows the
L.E.D. readout to display “FILL” (no cycle in progress), and the “Amount To Start” (PL12) or, in the case of
free dry, “FrEE.” The programming allows the L.E.D. readout to flip-flop back and forth every
2-seconds from “FILL” to “Amount To Start,” or in the case of free dry, from “FILL” to “FrEE.”
16
Bad Coin Lockout Status (bCLO)
In this program status, the computer counts in milliseconds the amount of time required for a coin entry signal. If
someone should tamper with the coin acceptor or attempt to insert a foreign object, the Phase 3 microprocessor
controller (computer) will lock up, shut the dryer down, and the display will read “OFF.” This condition will be
evident, even if coins are inserted, until the program is manually reset by closing and reopening the program
switch (PS).
Bad Coin Reset (bCrS)
When set in this program (“bCrS”), the Phase 3 microprocessor controller (computer) counts in milliseconds the
amount of time required for a coin entry signal. If someone should tamper with the coin acceptor or attempt to
insert a foreign object, the Phase 3 microprocessor controller (computer) will not accept the entry and will
automatically reset itself immediately for the next entry.
Accumulative Time (AtIn)
Single Coin
In this program mode (“AtIn”), each coin inserted has a specific value in time, which is determined by the “Time
Per Left Coin” (“tPLC”) program (PL11).
Example No. 1: If the dryer is equipped with a 25¢ coin acceptor and the desired time is 12 minutes, each
additional coin inserted would yield 12 minutes.
Settings: PL09 (LCdE) ............ 25
PL11 (tPLC) ............. 12
PL12 (AtSt) ............... 25
Example No. 2: If the dryer is equipped with a 25¢ coin acceptor and the “Amount To Start” (“AtSt”) is 50¢
for 30 minutes, the insertion of each additional coin would yield 15 minutes. In this application
the “Time Per Left Coin” (“tPLC”) is determined by dividing the “Total Vend Time” (30) by
the “Amount To Start” (“AtSt”) (i.e. 50¢) and then, multiplying by the Left Coin Denomination
(“LCdE”).
Formula: (Total Vend Time/AtSt)(LCdE) = tPLC
(30/50)(25) = 15 minutes
Settings: PL09 (LCdE) ............ 25
PL11 (tPLC) ............. 15
PL12 (AtSt) ............... 50
17
Dual Coin
In the time accumulation mode, when using a dual coin acceptor, once the “Amount To Start” (“AtSt”) has been
inserted, the addition of a coin(s) yields more time. The amount of time accumulated for each additional coin
inserted is determined by the “Time Per Left Coin” (“tPLC”) program (PL11).
The “Time Per Left Coin” (“tPLC”) is determined by taking the “Total Vend Time” divided by the “Amount To
Start” (“AtSt”) (PL12) and then, multiplying by the “Left Coin Denomination” (“LCdE”).
Formula: (Total Vend Time/AtSt)(LCdE) = tPLC
Example No. 1: Using a 10¢/25¢ dual coin acceptor with the desired “Amount To Start” (“AtSt”) being 25¢
for 15 minutes, each additional 10¢ would yield 6 minutes:
Formula: (15/25)(10) = 6 minutes (tPLC)
Settings: PL09
PL10
PL11
PL12
(LCdE) ............ 10
(rCdE) ............. 25
(tPLC) ............... 6
(AtSt) ............... 25
Example No. 2: If the dryer is equipped with a 10¢/25¢ dual coin acceptor and the “Amount To Start” (“AtSt”)
is 35¢ for 14 minutes, each additional 10¢ inserted would yield 4 minutes, and each additional
25¢ would yield 10 minutes.
Formula: (14/35)(10) = 4 minutes (tPLC)
Settings: PL09
PL10
PL11
PL12
(LCdE) ............ 10
(rCdE) ............. 25
(tPLC) ............... 4
(AtSt) ............... 35
Example No. 3: If the dryer is equipped with a 10¢/25¢ dual coin acceptor and the desired “Amount To Start”
(“AtSt”) is 55¢ for 33 minutes, each additional 10¢ inserted would yield 6 minutes, and each
additional 25¢ would yield 15 minutes.
Formula: (33/55)(10) = 6 minutes (tPLC)
Settings: PL09
PL10
PL11
PL12
(LCdE) ............ 10
(rCdE) ............. 25
(tPLC) ............... 6
(AtSt) ............... 55
NOTE: If the Total Vend Time cannot be divided evenly by the “Amount To Start” (“AtSt”), the “Time
Per Left Coin” (“tPLC”) must be rounded off.
Formula: (35/55)(10) = 6.36 - Round off to 6 minutes.
18
Accumulative Coin (ACOn)
When this program mode (“ACOn”) is selected, additional time can only be achieved when the “Amount For
Additional Time” (“AFAt”) (PL13) has been inserted.
Single Coin Acceptor
Example No. 1: Using a 25¢ coin acceptor with the desired “Amount To Start” (“AtSt”) being 50¢ for 24
minutes, the Phase 3 microprocessor controller (computer) would yield more time (24 minutes)
only when an additional 50¢ is inserted. For this application, the “Time Per Left Coin” (“tPLC”)
program (PL11) is determined as follows:
Formula: (Total Vend Time/AtSt)(LCdE) = tPLC
(24/50)(25) = 12 minutes (tPLC)
Settings: PL09
PL10
PL11
PL12
(LCdE) ............ 25
(rCdE) ............. 12
(tPLC) ............. 50
(AtSt) ............... 50
Dual Coin Acceptor
With dual coin acceptor the “Time Per Left Coin” (“tPLC”) is determined as follows:
Formula: (Total Vend Time/AtSt)(LCdE) = tPLC
Example No. 1: Using a 10¢/25¢ dual coin acceptor and the desired “Amount To Start” (“AtSt”) is 50¢ for 20
minutes and the “Amount For Additional Time” (“AFAt”) is set for 20¢, each additional 20¢
would yield 8 minutes.
Formula: (20/50)(10) = 4 minutes (tPLC)
Settings: PL09
PL10
PL11
PL12
PL13
(LCdE) ............ 10

Example No. 2: If the dryer is equipped with a 10¢/25¢ dual coin acceptor and the “Amount To Start” (“AtSt”)
is 35¢ for 14 minutes and the “Amount For Additional Time” (“AFAt”) is set for 25¢, each
additional 25¢ inserted would yield 10 minutes.

19
PL02 - Dryness Level (drYL)
When in the automatic mode or free dry mode, the dryer will run until the preset level of dryness (Number of
Auto Peaks) has been reached. The dryness level is programmable from a minimum of 1 to a maximum of 99.
NOTE: Due to humidity, atmospheric pressure, water retention in the garment etc., the desired dryness
level may vary. It is suggested that the owner determine which level of dryness is best suited
for his application by experimenting with a few test loads.
PL03 - High Temperature (HIºF)
The high operating temperature is programmable from a minimum of 100º F (38º C) to a maximum of 190º F (88º
C) in ten-degree increments or from a minimum of 35º C (95º F) to a maximum of 90º C (194º F) in five-degree
increments.
PL04 - High Cool Down Temperature/Time (HICd)
The first part of this program controls the cool down temperature when the Phase 3 microprocessor controller
(computer) is used in the automatic or free dry mode. The cool down temperature is programmable from a
minimum of 100º F (38º C) to a maximum of 190º F (88º C) in ten-degree increments or from a minimum of 35º
C (95º F) to a maximum of 90º C (194º F) in five-degree increments.
The second part of this program controls the cool down time for both the automatic and timed modes. The cool
down time can be programmed from a minimum of 0 minutes to a maximum of 9 minutes.
NOTE: When the Phase 3 microprocessor controller (computer) is used in the automatic or free dry
mode, at the end of the drying cycle, the Phase 3 microprocessor controller (computer) then
starts the automatic cooling cycle for the cool down time programmed or until the temperature
has dropped to the programmed cool down temperature, whichever of the two (2) comes first.
PL05 - Low Temperature (LOºF)
Same as PL03 but for Low Temperature program.
PL06 - Low Cool Down Temperature/Time (LOCd)
Same as PL04 but for Low Cool Down Temperature/Time.
PL07 - Permanent Press (PPºF)
Same as PL03 but for Permanent Press.
PL08 - Perm Press Cool Down Temperature/Time (PPCd)
Same as PL04 but for Permanent Press Cool Down Temperature/Time.
20
PL09 - Left Coin Slot Denomination (LCdE)
In the case of a single coin acceptor, this program setting is determined by the value of the coin acceptor (i.e.,
25¢).
When a dual coin acceptor is used, this program setting is determined by the left coin slot acceptor value (lower
coin value). Program settings are from a minimum of 1 to a maximum of 9999.
PL10 - Right Coin Slot Denomination (rCdE)
This program needs only to be set when a dual coin acceptor is used. The program setting is determined by the
value of the right coin acceptor slot (higher value). Program settings are from a minimum of 1 to a maximum of
9999. When used in conjunction with the Left Coin Slot Denomination program, the Phase 3 microprocessor
controller (computer) automatically calculates the ratios necessary for coin insertion time values.
PL11 - Time Per Left Coin (tPLC)
This program sets a specific value in time for each coin inserted. In the case of a dual coin acceptor, the Time
Per Right Coin is automatically calculated by the left and right coin slot denomination ration.
PL12 - Amount To Start (AtSt)
This program sets the “Amount To Start” the dryer and can be programmed from a minimum of 1 to a maximum
of 9999.
PL13 - Minimum Amount For Additional Time (AFAt)
This program needs only be set when the Phase 3 microprocessor controller (computer) is set in the “Accumulative
Coin” (“ACOn”) mode (PL01). The value set for this program is what will have to be inserted for more time
after the “Amount To Start” (“AtSt”) has been inserted.
Example No. 1: “Amount To Start” (“AtSt”) is 50¢ for 30 minutes and an additional 50¢ is required for more
time. In this example, PL13 should be set for 50¢.
PL14 - Maximum Automatic Dryness Time (Adrt)
This program is used only when the Phase 3 microprocessor controller (computer) is set in the automatic mode
or free dry mode. This program controls the maximum time the dryer will run even if the Dryness Level
program (PL02) has not been reached.
21
PL15 - Antiwrinkle Timing
1. Guard Delay Time (GdLY)
This program controls the dwell (stop) time and activation of the antiwrinkle “Guard On Time” (“Gont”).
The dwell (stop) time can be programmed from a minimum of 1 minute to a maximum of 9 minutes in 1
minute increments.
2. Guard On Time (Gont)
This setting controls the amount of time that the basket (tumbler) will turn, without heat, when the antiwrinkle
is active (“Grd”). The “Guard On Time” (“Gont”) is programmable from a minimum of 1-second to a
maximum of 99-seconds in 1-second increments.
PL16 - Active Guard Time (AGt)
This program controls the maximum time that the Antiwrinkle Program will be active and is programmable from
a minimum of 1 minute to a maximum of 99 minutes in 1 minute increments.

NON-COIN COMPUTER DRYER
Non-Coin Features
Automatic Operation
The user selects fabric and level of dryness desired. The dryer automatically turns the heat off when the level
of dryness has been reached, and goes into cool down for 5 minutes or until a temperature of 100º F (38º C) is
reached.
Manual Operation
The user selects drying time and cooling time (up to 99 minutes each) and type of fabric that is being dried.
Nine Fabric Selections
The temperature range is from 110º F (43º C) to 190º F (88º C).
Temperature Display
This feature is available in either Fahrenheit or Celsius.
Troubleshooting
The microprocessor controller (computer) can detect trouble in the door circuit, temperature circuit, motor
circuit, and heat circuit.
Audible Tone
A buzzer (tone) will sound for each command entry such as temperature or dryness. Additionally, it will sound
for 5-seconds at the end of a cycle.
Automatic Cycle Adjustment
The microprocessor controller (computer) automatically adjusts for a 50 cycle or 60 cycle operation.
Dryness Level
The dryness level is adjustable from 1 (less dry) to 9 (more dry) with a range tripler, which allows a total dryness
level of 27 to be reached.
Reversing Dryers (Optional)
Reversing dryers have the option to select reversing or single direction drum rotation. The number of reverses
per minute is selectable (1 or 2 reverses per minute). Reversing stop time is adjustable from 6 to 18-seconds in
4-second increments.

Switch #1 - On dryers equipped with the reversing basket (tumbler) option, by putting this switch into the closed
position, the operator can select either reversing or non-reversing basket (tumbler) action when
programming the computer at the start of each drying load. When this dip switch is put into the open
position, the basket (tumbler) will always have reverse action. On non-reversing dryers, this switch
should be opened. Display will show “Sr.” Press “Enter/Start” for reversing action or press “0”
for non-reversing.
Switch #2 and 3 - It is important on reversing dryers that the basket (tumbler) come to a complete stop before
it changes its rotational direction. These two (2) switches control this stop time. When both
switches are in the closed position, the stop time is 6-seconds. When switch #2 is opened and
#3 is closed, the stop time is 10-seconds. When switch #2 is closed and switch #3 is opened,
the stop time is 14-seconds. When both switches are opened, the stop time is 18-seconds.
On non-reversing dryers, these switches should be closed.
Switch #4 - If switch #4 is closed, the computer will display the operating temperature of the dryer. This is only
used for servicing the dryer. This switch should be closed only after the dryer is running. For
normal dryer operation, this switch must be in the open position.
Switch #5 - By placing this switch into the closed position, the dryer will only operate in the automatic mode. On
dryers equipped with the optional automatic/manual keyboard (touch pad), this switch should be
put into the opened position.
Switch #6 - When the dryer is being serviced, the operating temperature of the dryer can be displayed (dip
switch #4 is closed) in either Fahrenheit (switch #6 open) or Celsius (switch #6 closed).
Switch #7 - On dryers equipped with the optional reversing basket (tumbler), the number of reverses per minute
can be set up by this dip switch. The basket (tumbler) will reverse once per minute if this switch is
opened, or twice per minute if this switch is closed. On non-reversing dryers, the position of the
switch is unimportant.
50
Switch #8 - When the computer is being programmed in the automatic mode, a dryness level of 1 through 9
must be selected. In some cases, a dryness level of more than 9 is required. If this switch is
opened, the computer will triple the dryness level selected (for a maximum level of 27).
The dip switches have been factory set for the customer’s requirements. These switches should only be
changed if the dryer’s operational requirements change.

SECTION XIII
ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
A. CLEANING
A program and/or schedule should be established for periodic inspection, cleaning, and removal of lint from
various areas of the dryer, as well as throughout the ductwork system. The frequency of cleaning can best be
determined from experience at each location. Maximum operating efficiency is dependent upon proper air
circulation. The accumulation of lint can restrict this airflow. If the guidelines in this section are met, an ADC
dryer will provide many years of efficient, trouble free, and most importantly, safe operation.
WARNING: LINT FROM MOST FABRICS IS HIGHLY COMBUSTIBLE. THE
ACCUMULATION OF LINT CAN CREATE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.
WARNING: KEEP DRYER AREA CLEAR AND FREE FROM COMBUSTIBLE
MATERIALS, GASOLINE, AND OTHER FLAMMABLE VAPORS AND
LIQUIDS.
WARNING: TO AVOID THE HAZARD OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK, DISCONTINUE
ELECTRICAL POWER TO THE DRYER.
NOTE: Suggested time intervals shown are for average usage, which is considered six (6) to eight (8)
operational (running) hours per day.
IMPORTANT: Dryer produces combustible lint and must be exhausted to the outdoors. Every 6
months, inspect the exhaust ducting and remove any lint build up.
SUGGESTED CLEANING SCHEDULE
DAILY (BEGINNING OF EACH WORK SHIFT)
Clean lint from lint trap, screen, bottom, and walls of the lint chamber. Inspect lint screen and replace if torn.
90 DAYS
Remove lint accumulation from lint chamber, thermostats, sensor, and also from the motor air vents and surrounding
area.
120 DAYS
Remove lint from gas burner area with a dusting brush or vacuum cleaner attachment.
NOTE: To prevent damage, avoid cleaning or touching ignitor (Globar®).
60
6 MONTHS
Inspect and remove lint accumulation in customer furnished exhaust ductwork system. Clean lint/dust accumulation
from between fins of steam coil.
WARNING: THE ACCUMULATION OF LINT IN THE EXHAUST DUCTWORK CAN
CREATE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.
NOTE: When cleaning dryer cabinet(s), avoid using harsh abrasives. A product intended for the
cleaning of appliances is recommended.
B. ADJUSTMENTS
7 DAYS AFTER INSTALLATION AND EVERY 6 MONTHS THEREAFTER
Inspect bolts, nuts, screws, (bearing setscrews), grounding connections, and nonpermanent gas connections
(unions, shutoff valves, and orifices). Inspect motor and drive belts. Cracked or seriously frayed belts should
be replaced. Tighten loose belts when necessary and check alignment. Complete operational check of controls
and valves. Complete operational check of ALL safety devices (door switch, lint drawer switch, sail switch,
burner, and lint chamber thermostats).
C. LUBRICATION
The motor bearings, idler bearings, and basket (tumbler) bearings are permanently lubricated, and no lubrication
is necessary. Some basket (tumbler) bearings are equipped with grease fittings. Should lubrication ever be
found necessary, use a general purpose lithium-based grease. (DO NOT use animal or vegetable-based
lubricants.) DO NOT overgrease. Be sure grease fitting is thoroughly cleaned of ALL foreign material before
greasing.
