Electrical
The installation of this appliance should be carried out by a
competent electrician and be in accordance with the current IEE
wiring regulations.
Fixing Positions
This appliance may be either fixed to a ceiling - see Fig. 1 or floor
mounted see Fig. 2 using an appropriate foot.
A minimum distance of 500mm is required from top of the appliance
to the ceiling (see Fig. 1) and also the distance between the
bottom of the appliance and the top of the door should be kept to
a minimum (see ‘C’ in Fig. 1).
This appliance should not be mounted less than 1.8mt. from the
floor.
To open the appliance, remove the inlet grilles (‘x’ in Fig. 3)
Remove the front panel (‘z’ in Fig. 3).
Horizontal Mounting
By using the fixing holes in the top of the air curtain, attachment
to a ceiling over the product can be achieved using suitable M10
threaded steel rod or similar supports of sufficient strength - see
‘s’ in Fig. 1.
Vertical Mounting
The architectural range of air curtains can be vertically mounted
using a suitable floor foot (Ref: ARCVMF). Contact Dimplex or
your service agent for further information. Refer to Fig. 2 for
fixing details.
Electrical connection
Electrically heated variants
All products are fitted with a microprocessor control. Electrical
power and control connections are made as shown in Fig. 6 & 7.
A suitable local isolating switch must be provided in the electrical
supply circuit with at least 3mm clearance on each pole. In order
to access the electrical connections, remove the inlet grilles (see
‘x’ in Fig. 3). Remove the front panel (see ‘z’ in Fig. 3) and also
remove the mains cover plate (see ‘y’ in Fig. 3).
Operation using switch box - CABC5
ARC Electric Models
Feed an appropriate supply cable as shown in Fig. 4 and attach
to the terminal block (see ‘a’ in Fig. 4).
Note: Ensure that cables are secured to the cable tray with fixing
ties to avoid contact with the elements.
ARC Water/Ambient Models
Feed an appropriate supply cable as shown in Fig. 5 and attach
to the terminal block (see ‘a’ in Fig. 5 and Fig. 7).
A suitable cable for a switch panel (kit ref. - CABC5 for electrically
heated models or CABC6 for water heated/ambient models) can
be similarly introduced through the top panel and connected to
the circuit board.
If the unit is to be operated in conjunction with a door switch, a
normally closed switch should be wired (see ‘D’ in Fig. 6 & 7) as
appropriate. Note: If using a door switch, an additional 2 core
(low Voltage) cable is required between the door switch and the
air barriers.
If the unit is to be connected to a Building Energy Management
System, connections to be made (see ‘S0, S1, S2’ in Fig. 6 & 7)
as appropriate.
Ensure that the air curtain is securely fastened in position and
that the supply cables are firmly clamped before operating the
appliance.
Water connection
Models designed for use in conjunction with a low pressure hot
water supply should be individually connected (in a parallel circuit)
to the flow and return pipe-work.
Connections (see ‘a’ in Fig. 8) and isolation valves (see ‘b’ in Fig.
8) should be fitted as close to the air curtain connection points as
possible. Care should be taken to release as much air as possible
to prevent air locks.
Maximum water supply conditions are 100ºC and 10 bar
(1.03MPa).
Switch Panel Installation
The backing box (standard double gang) should be rebated
into a suitable wall. The box should be fitted so that the switch panel
will be flush with the wall. Suitable conduit should be used where
applicable to carry the cable between the heater and the switch.
An RJ45 Patch cable with straight through connections should be
used to connect the switch panel to the appliance PCB.
Warning: Ensure cable is secure and the cable path does not
come into contact with heater element or other moving parts. Test
all switch settings once installation is complete.
Switch on electrical supply to the air curtain. Rotate the switch to
the desired heat setting. Settings available are;
OFF
Low Fan
Low Fan with Low Heat
High Fan
High Fan with Low Heat
High Fan with Full Heat
The rocker (auto / manual) switch allows for manual over-ride of
a door switch if fitted. Manual allows the appliance to run at the
desired setting, while Auto provides an energy saving feature by
shutting down the appliance while the door is closed.
The unit should always be switched OFF using the switch box
control, and not by mains power supply interruption.
When the unit is switched off (via the switch box) the fan will run
on for 1 minute without heat to discharge any residual energy from
the heating elements.
When first turned on the control will run through a system check.
The selected settings will be reached and maintained after a 30
second period.
Door switch control (Electric models)
By including a door switch in the circuit (as per ‘D’ in Fig. 6 or Fig.
7) the air curtain will respond to door openings as follows:
(1) Door opening will energise the air curtain at the set conditions
(switch box settings).
(2) On door closure operation will continue at the set conditions
for a further 1 minute.
(3) Between 1 minute and 2 minutes from door closure, set back
operation, ½ heat (if heat selected) and ½ fan will activate.
(4) Between 2 minutes and 3 minutes, the fan only (½ speed) shut
down cycle will be engaged.
(5) After 3 minutes, the air curtain will return to a dormant state
until the door is re-opened.
If the door re-opens during this 3 minute run on cycle, the
process will restart at (1).
Thermal Safety cut outs
Remote (BMS / BEMS) Operation
The power supply to the heating elements will be interrupted if one
or a combination of the following abnormal events occur:
1.
Air inlet or outlet grilles are obstructed.
2.
Internal ventilation is impaired due to build up of dust
and fluff.
3.
Blower unit stalls.
To reset the thermal safety cut-outs, access reset (red) buttons
(see Fig. 9). Before re-setting the reason for activation must be
determined and corrective action taken.
Connection to Building Energy Management Control Systems
(BEMS) is possible so that remote control of the air-curtain can
be carried out in conjunction with other equipment. Please refer
to the table in Fig. 6 & 7 to make the appropriate connections to
the PCB.
Low pressure hot water heated / Ambient (fan
only) variants
Operation using switch box - CABC6
Switch on electrical supply to the air curtain. Rotate the switch to
the desired heat setting. Settings available are;
OFF
Low Fan
High Fan
The rocker (auto / manual) switch allows for manual over-ride of
a door switch if fitted. Manual allows the appliance to run at the
desired setting, while Auto provides an energy saving feature by
shutting down the appliance while the door is closed. The unit
should always be switched OFF using the switch box control, and
not by mains power supply interruption. When first turned on the
control will run through a system check. The selected settings will
be reached and maintained after a 30 second period.
Thermostatic control (optional)
1) A thermostat may be connected to ‘C’ in Fig. 6 or Fig. 7 to
regulate the outlet air temperature on electric heated models.
2) A thermostatic regulation valve with a remote sensing bulb
(not supplied) can be positioned in the supply water pipe-work to
regulate the heat output on water heated models.
3) An electrical 3-Port Solenoid Valve can also be connected into
the system. Please contact your service agent using the contact
details for more details.
Door switch control (Water heated & Ambient
models)
By including a door switch in the circuit (as per ‘D’ in Fig. 8) the
air curtain will respond to door openings as follows:
(1) Door opening will energise the air curtain at the set
conditions (switch box settings).
(2) On door closure operation will continue at the set conditions
for a further 1 minute.
(3) Between 1 minute and 2 minutes from door closure ½ fan
set back operation will activate.
(4) After 2 minutes, the air curtain will return to a dormant state until
the door is re-opened. If the door re-opens during this 2 minute
run on cycle, the process will re-start at (1).

Modular Connection
A number of units can be connected together to form one
continuous long air curtain. Each appliance should be supplied
separately. Simultaneous control of all the air curtains is achieved
by linking the PCB’s with a modular linking cable found in the
modular linking kit. (Kit Ref. - CABM1) Refer to instructions
provided with the modular linking kit.
