Ingredients Required to Manufacture Quality
Carbonated Water
Good Quality CO2
Multiplex Refrigeration Units are designed to operate properly on 90 psi (6.4 bar) of CO2
pressure.
Clean Water
Carbonated drinks are made up of over 83% water. Clean water is required for good taste and to
protect the equipment.
Cold Temperature
Multiplex Refrigeration Units use a cold carbonation system, water is carbonated in an ice cold
water bath. It is very important to dispense drinks below 39°F (4°C).
Proper Agitation
Multiplex carbonation systems are designed to give you the exact amount of agitation to give
you the proper carbonation.

Complete System Overview
Multiplex Post-mix Beverage System
Multiplex Post-mix beverage systems use filtered water from a filtered water supply system
and chill it as it passes through stainless steel cooling coils located in an ice cold water bath.
The water bath is maintained at 32°F (0°C) by a mechanical refrigeration system which
produces a large ice bank reserve to provide sufficient cooling for peak draw periods. This ice
reserve allows a relatively small refrigeration unit to maintain drink temperatures, drawing form
the ice reserve during heavy load periods and then re-establishing the ice bank during light draw
periods.
The chilled water passing through the water bath is mixed with carbon dioxide (CO2) in the
carbonated water supply system. This is when and where it becomes carbonated water in the
carbonation tank.
Syrup is also chilled as it passes through stainless steel cooling coils located in the ice cold
water bath. Chilled, the syrup is connected to one of several beverage tubes contained within a
beverage conduit. This conduit is then routed to a dispensing station.
The circulating carbonated water supply system allows for the circulation of carbonated
water through use of a pump to create an outlet and inlet carbonated water supply. Outlet and inlet
carbonated water supplies are connected to tubes contained within the same beverage conduit as
the syrup. This allows carbonated water to flow from the water bath to the dispensing station and
back, maintaining a constant beverage temperature throughout the system.
Ice cold carbonated water and syrup are dispensed from valves at the dispensing station.
Dispensing valves contain flow controls which allow for flow adjustment to maintain the proper
ratio of syrup to carbonated water. Syrup and carbonated water are released when the dispensing
valves are opened. This allows mixing to begin as escaping products are allowed to flow through the
valve nozzle. They continue to mix as they fall into the customer’s cup to complete the production
of a bottler-quality soft drink.

Complete System Overview
Water Filter System
Incoming water pressure is to be maintained at 55 psig (3.9 bar) to ensure proper flow
throughout the system. An in-line water regulator and gauge controls high water pressure and
allows for pressure monitoring.
Water enters the pre-filter(s) that remove the coarse particles that are contained in the supply
water, protecting the fine filter.
Water flows from the pre-filter(s) to the taste/odor activated carbon filter, absorbing taste and
odor causing chemicals, such as chlorine and sulfur.
Finally, water runs through a fine filter, filtering out the finer particles left in the supply water,
thus protecting the equipment and helping to insure quality water for carbonation.
Pressure gauges located before and after the filtration system allow the monitoring of pressure
across the filter system, indicating clogged filters and the need for replacement.

Carbonation System
Carbonator Pump “off”
Carbon dioxide (CO2) regulated to 90 psi (6.3 bar) passes through a single check valve, which
prevents water from backing up into the CO2 supply, and fills the carbonator tank with CO2.
The incoming filtered water at 55 psig (3.9 bar) feeds the brass carbonator pump, then
proceeds through a stainless steel cooling coil located in the 32°F (0°C) water bath. Chilled water is
then delivered to the double check valve on top of the carbonator tank. CO2 is prevented from
leaving the carbonator tank through the fresh water supply by the double check valve.
When the carbonator motor is “off”, the high CO2 pressure within the carbonator tank prevents
replacement water from entering the carbonator tank.

Carbonation System (continued)
Carbonator Pump “on”
When the carbonated water level in the carbonator tank falls below both the electrodes, the
liquid level control will send electricity to the carbonator motor. The motor turns the carbonator
pump, which increases the water pressure from 55 psig (3.8 bar) to approximately 140 to 170 psig
(10 to 12 bar). This boosted water goes through the cooling coil in the water bath, through the
double check valve and overcomes the 90 psig (6.3 bar) CO2 pressure within the carbonator tank.
Water flowing through the orifice at the base of the check valve is broken into tiny droplets and
sprayed into the carbonator tank, absorbing CO2 to produce cold, quality carbonated water.
While the motor and pump is running, the carbonated water level in the tank will rise until it
reaches the low and then the high electrode, at which point the liquid level control will shut “off”
the electricity to the motor. Each time a sufficient amount of carbonated water is drawn from the
carbonation tank, the cycle will repeat.

Liquid Level Control (Electrode Circuit)
(continued)
When the carbonator tank is full, carbonated water is touching both the low and high
electrodes and the liquid level control will not supply power to the carbonator motor.
When carbonated water is drawn out of the tank, it will first fall below the high electrode. This
opens the circuit between the “G” and “H” terminals of the liquid level control.
The continued draw of carbonated water from the tank will cause the level of carbonated
water to fall below the low electrode. This opens the circuit between the “G” and “L” terminals of
the liquid level control. With both circuits open, the liquid level control directs power to the
carbonator motor and the pump, turning it “on” and replenishing the supply of carbonated water in
the tank.
The carbonated water level will quickly rise to the low electrode and close the circuit between
the “G” and “L” terminals of the liquid level control.
Continuing to pump water into the tank, the level will next rise to the high electrode and close
the circuit between the “G” and “H” terminals of the liquid level control. This turns the motor
“off” and stops water from being pumped into the tank.
The electrodes work with the liquid level control to maintain the level of carbonated water in
the tank. Continuity through the carbonated water from both electrodes (low and high) to the tank
(ground) turns the carbonator motor “off”. No continuity from both electrodes to the tank turns the
carbonator motor “on”.

Complete System Overview
Circulating Carbonated Water Supply System
Cold, carbonated water is pushed from the carbonator tank by 90 psig (6.3 bar) of CO2, up
through the pick up tube and out of the carbonator tank. It is then chilled as it flows through the
stainless steel cooling coil located in the 32°F (0°C) water bath. Feeding a stainless steel
circulating pump, the chilled and carbonated water is then forced up to the dispensing station.
Carbonated water from the circulating pump is connected to one of the two carbonated water
lines found within the beverage supply conduit. At the opposite end of the beverage conduit, the
supply line, along with the remaining return carbonated water line, is connected respectively to
the inlet and outlet ends of a turn-around manifold located in the beverage dispensing unit.
Returning carbonated water mixes with newly manufactured carbonated water as it is forced
out of the tank to replenish the supply in the circulating loop.
The circulating, carbonated water ensures that the syrups that are also contained within the
beverage conduit are properly cooled and that all finished drinks are drawn at 39°F (3.9°C) or less.

Complete System Overview
Dispensing System
Syrup at the refrigeration unit is pressurized and pushed through cooling coils located in the
32°F (0°C) water bath and then on to the dispensing valves. The push pressure is achieved by one of
two methods. One way is by applying direct gas pressure (air or CO2) on the surface of syrup stored
in stainless steel syrup tanks (figals) which is then connected to the cooling coil. Another way is to
use syrup pumps to draw syrup out of bag-in-box containers and then push the syrup through the
cooling coils.
Cold syrup flows from the cooling coils and into the beverage conduit where it is then kept cool
by circulating carbonated water to the final point of dispensing. Activating a dispensing valve allows
syrup and carbonated water to escape through the diffuser/nozzle assembly of the valve. The actual
mixing of the beverage occurs as the syrup and carbonated water enter the nozzle. As the beverage
falls from the nozzle, it continues to mix until captured in the customer’s cup, where mixing is
completed.
To ensure consistent mixing, the dispensing valves are equipped with adjustable flow controls
that react to line pressure changes, opening and closing orifices to keep a constant ratio of
carbonated water to syrup.

Water Regulator
Function of the water regulator
Regulates the incoming water pressure to 55 psi (3.8 bar) preventing “flooding” of the carbonator
tank in locations with high water pressure.
Failure of the water regulator
An unregulated water supply can overcome the 90 psi (6.2 bar) CO2 pressure in the carbonator
tank and prevent the proper absorption of CO2 into the water resulting in poor carbonation.
Notes:
w
Look for fluctuations in pressure (poor city water pressure)
w
To increase pressure turn clockwise
w
Don’t assume plumber flushed pipes
w
Regulators can be taken apart and cleaned

Water Filter
Function of the water filter
Filters out both solid and suspended impurities found in the water supply. Preventing damage to
components, insuring proper absorption of CO2 into the water and a drink free of “off” taste.
Failure of the water filter
Solids
With use, filter will become restricted to the point of starving water pumps, effecting drink
recovery rate.
Suspended
With use, filters will become saturated, effecting drink taste.
Activate Filter by (activate
when system is not in use):
1.
Put filter on by-pass.
2.
Open activation valve (to
relieve pressure).
3.
Replace cartridge.
4.
Slowly take filter off bypass (leaving activation
valve open).
5.
Activate for proper
amount of time.
Notes:
w
Examine water pressure gauge, if pressure drops 40 psi (2.8 bar) or more, when
carbonator pumps cycle, put filter on by-pass and replace

Accumulator Tank Pressures
Accumulator tanks have a rubber diaphragm in the middle of the steel tank, air is stored on one
side of the diaphragm and water is stored on the other side, a plastic liner protects the steel from
rust. Multiplex uses accumulator tanks for several purposes:
Water booster tank
A water booster pump is used to increase the incoming water pressure to 65 psi (4.5 bar) to 85 psi
(6.0 bar). We then store that higher pressure water in an accumulator tank. As a result, the pump
isn’t running every time water is needed. The air in the tank gives the water a nice push out of the
tank so that the water pressure slowly drops, allowing the pump to cycle on run for a short period of
time and then cycle off. The air charge of this tank should be 60 psi (4.1 bar) to 65 psi (4.5 bar).
Filtered water accumulator tank
Filtered water is stored in an accumulator tank to be used when the carbonator pumps demand
more water than will flow through your restricted water filters, and then slowly refill the tank when
the pumps shut “off”. This enables you to use your filters for a longer period of time. The air
charge of this tank should be 15 psi (1.0 bar) to 20 psi (1.4 bar).
The air charge in the tank should be filled or checked with no water pressure to the tank,
because once you have water pressure applied to the tank the air will compress and equalize with
the water pressure and you will get a false reading.
It is very important to use air and not CO2 to charge the tank, because CO2 will eventually bleed
through the rubber diaphragm, thus reducing the charge in the tank.
On the bigger WX103 tank, when used as a water booster tank, it is critical to have the 60 psi
(4.1 bar) to 65 psi (4.5 bar) air charge, because if the air pressure drops below 45 psi (3.1 bar), the
diaphragm will break.

Primary Regulator
Function of the primary regulator
Regulates the CO2 tank pressure to maintain a constant 90 psi (not over, not under) for the
production of carbonated water.
Failure of the primary regulator
Low pressure or a “sluggish” regulator will cause poor absorption of CO2 into the water resulting
in poor carbonation.
High pressure or a “creeping” regulator will cause increased absorption of CO2 into the water
resulting in over carbonation.

Secondary Regulator (Syrup Regulator)
Function of the secondary regulator
Regulates the CO2 or air pressure used to push the syrups to the dispensing valves.
Failure of the secondary regulator
Low pressure or a “sluggish” regulator will cause an insufficient supply of syrup during
dispensing, resulting in drinks that taste over carbonated (fast dispersing foam).
High pressure or a “creeping” regulator will cause increased supply of syrup during dispensing,
resulting in drinks that taste flat and under carbonated (slow lingering foam).
w Letting syrup tanks to empty or a
defective leaking syrup disconnect
will cause air in the lines and
foaming at the dispensing valve
(especially at the slab stores with
underground chases).

side).
Notes:
w
Check for leaks with bubble soap (always rinse soap from tubing).
w

Carbonator Pump and Motor
Function of the carbonator pump and motor
Increases the pressure of the water, to overcome the CO2 pressure and manufacture/replenish
the carbonated water supply within the carbonator tank.
Failure of the carbonator pump and motor
A weak or defective carbonator pump or motor (key) will cause poor carbonation and limit the
capacity of the unit to manufacture carbonated water.
To determine the approximate
cycle time:
1.
Right after the carbonator kicks
off, draw the carbonated water
into a volume cup until the carbonator starts again.
2.
Note how many ounces you have
and multiply by 0.28 to determine
how many seconds your cycle time
should be.

Complete System Overview
Carbonator Pumps
(continued)
All Multiplex equipment requires carbonator
pumps with a 250 psi (17.6 bar) relief setting.
w
w
This relief valve is designed to relieve in emergency situations only (when you have a serious restriction on the outlet of the pump. For
example, a freeze up of the cooling coil in
the water bath, etc.)
A standard carbonator pump has a 170 psi (12
bar) relief valve setting. Multiplex equipment
generates quite a bit of back pressure, thus
causing the standard 170 psi (12 bar) pump to
relieve excessively. This causes wear to the
relief valve, prematurely weakening the
pump.
Determining the strength of a
carbonator pump
Note: Do not be dispensing drinks during the test.
1.
Dispense carbonated water until the carbonator pump cycles on, then stop.
2.
Wait for the carbonator to cycle “off”, then
turn “off” the electrical switch for the
carbonator.
3.
Dispense exactly 50 fl oz (2 L) of carbonated
water only.
4.
Turn “on” the electrical switch for the carbonator and time how many seconds it takes
to cycle “off”. This is the actual cycle time.
5.
From the chart on the following page, determine the expected cycle time.
For example:
50 ounces x .28, for a 100 GPH pump =
14 seconds
2 liters x 9.52 for a 378.5 LPH pump = 19 seconds
6.
If your actual cycle time is much greater
than your expected cycle time, your pump
has been weakened and the capacity of your
equipment has been reduced.

Procedure for properly adjusting
the relief valve setting on a pump
1.
Remove the large acorn nut on the top side of
the pump.
2.
Mount a gauge on the outlet flow of the pump
(as shown, to totally block the discharge flow).
3.
Turn “on” the pump. While the pump is running, adjust the relief valve screw so that the
gauge reads 275 psi (19.3 bar) (250 psi
[17.6 bar] relief setting + 25 psi [1.7 bar]

Low Water Pressure Safety Circuit
If water pressure is greater than 4 psi (0.3 bar), the pressure switch will be open and not allow
electricity to pass, and the relay will be closed and allow electricity to flow to the motor.
If the water pressure drops below 4 psi (0.3 bar), the pressure switch will close and allow
electricity to flow to the relay, heating the relay, causing it to open, stopping the electricity from
flowing to the motor.
If the water pressure then goes above 4 psi (0.3 bar), the pressure switch will again open,
stopping the electricity from flowing to the relay, the relay will start to cool, after about 3 minutes
the relay will close, again sending electricity to the motor.

Liquid Level Control
Function of the liquid level control
Switches “off” and “on” the carbonator pump and motor when the electrodes indicate a full or
empty tank. Continuity across L and H to G cause the liquid level control to switch “off” the
carbonator pump and motor. Open circuits across L and H to G cause the liquid level control to
switch “on’ the carbonator pump and motor.
Failure of the liquid level control
Defective liquid level control will cause the carbonator pump and motor to run continuously or
not at all.
Note: For proper voltage meter reading, you must test to ground or you will get a ghost reading.
Notes:
w
90% control fails closed (motor runs all the time)

Function of the condenser
A heat exchanger which transfers heat from the refrigerant to the surrounding air or water.
Failure of the condenser
Air Cooled Condenser
A non operational fan/motor or restricted condenser will reduce the cooling efficiency of the
refrigeration unit.
Water Cooled Condenser
A restricted water supply to the condenser will reduce the efficiency of the refrigeration unit, a

lation by qualified refrigeration mechanics.
As a condition of the warranty, the check test
and start-up procedure must be performed by
qualified personnel. Because of possible shipping damage, both the Condensing Unit and
Refrigeration Unit(s) must be checked for refrigerant leaks.
The easiest method to create a trap, is to bend
the tubing (smoothly, no kinks) into the trap
form (refer to figure 3).
This trap(s) should be of minimum height of
3" (7.6 cm) and a width of 6" (15.2 cm) to minimize oil accumulation.
It is critical that the Multiplex Remote Condensing line size specifications for the specific model, be maintained. The specifications
are normally 1/2" discharge and 3/8" ID liquid
lines.

Connecting the pre-charged
refrigeration lines
How to re-charge the line sets
Note: Before connecting the Pre-charged Refrigeration Lines, the Refrigeration Unit must be properly located, leveled, and the water bath filled 1"
(2.5 cm) below the drain pipe.
1. Attach low side Gauge Set to service port on
each line set to verify positive pressure within
the line set. If there is positive pressure, assume
line set is fully charged.
Note: If for any reason the lines are damaged and/
or leaking or lines are no longer charged, refer to
”How To Re-charge the Line Sets”.
2. Always make the connections at the Condenser
first, using the end of the Pre-charged Lines
with the valve ports.
3. Connect the Condenser side one time quick
connects (discharge and liquid) up to Condenser.
Refer to the section titled “Aeroquip
Connection” in these instructions.
4. Check that the sight glass clears during pull
down to verify the Line Set charge.
5. If the sight glass does not clear, attach the
gauges. Adjust the charge if necessary.
Remote
Condenser
Note: This procedure to be used only with damaged or evacuated Line Sets or with unknown refrigerant type.
1. Repair any damages to the Line Sets before
proceeding.
2. With the Remote Condenser lines properly
hooked and sealed to the Condenser, evacuate
to 30 in mercury (76.2 cm mercury) for 1 hour,
using one or both Schrader ports on the service
Line Set.
3. Charge the Condenser and Line Set accordingly.
Add 0.72 oz/ft (0.067 kg/m) of Remote Line Set
(one way run distance) plus 6 oz (170 g) of
refrigerant for any size Condenser.
Example:
50 ft of Line Set
50 x 0.72 = 36 oz
36 oz + 6.0 oz = 42.0 oz (Total)
4. Connect Line Sets to the proper discharge and
liquid mating connectors on the Refrigeration
Unit using one (1) time quick connects. Refer
to the section titled “Aeroquip Connection”
in these instructions.

Equipment Installation Instructions for Multiplex
Remote Condenser and Pre-charged Refrigeration
Lines (continued)
5. Be sure to observe proper refrigeration
technique when running the Line Set.
Proper Refrigeration Technique for Running
the Line Set
a. The discharge line should loop down at
the Compressor end to trap liquid from
returning (refer to figure 3).
b.
c.
The Discharge Line should loop above discharge connector at the Condenser to
resist liquid returning to the Compressor.
Any excess line should be coiled horizontally with line from the Compressor at top
and line to the Condenser at bottom to
keep from trapping oil and returning liquid.
Discharge line should be trapped (P Trap)
every 20-25 ft (6.1-7.6 m) of vertical rise,
to allow oil to “stair-step” up to the Condenser and eventually return to the Compressor.
Aeroquip Connection
1. Lubricate male half diaphragm and synthetic
rubber seal with refrigerant oil.
2. Thread male coupling to its proper female half
by hand to insure proper mating of threads.
3. Use proper wrenches (on coupling body hex and
its union nut) and tighten union nut until
coupling bodies “bottom”.
Note: You must use body wrench to keep body
from turning while tightening nut with the second wrench. If body turns excessively, piercing seal
will be damaged.
4. Use proper wrenches to tighten an additional
1
/4 turn (90°). This final 1/4 turn is necessary to
insure the formation of a leak proof joint.
Alternately use a torque wrench to tighten 1/2"
Coupling to 40 ft lbs and 3/8" fitting to 11 ft lbs.
Note: When the connections are made, the seal in
the couplings are broken and if removed for any
reason, the refrigerant charge will be depleted.
Caution: Relays and terminal block are energized
from each remote unit. Turn “off” switches on
each unit before, opening quick disconnect switch
on condensing unit. On the completion of the wiring of the Remote Condenser make sure the electrician placed the switch lever in the “on” position. This switch must be “on” before turning
“on” the refrigeration toggle switch on the unit.
Also, the water bath must be filled with water.

Expansion Valve or Cap Tube
Function of the expansion valve or cap tube
The expansion valve or cap tube, controls the refrigerant flow. Both controls allow the reduction
of liquid refrigerant from high pressure to its evaporating pressure. The expansion valve is better
suited for varying temperature conditions.
Failure of the expansion valve or cap tube
A defective expansion valve or cap tube will not properly regulate the flow of refrigerant.

Head Pressure Control
(used on Remote Condensing units only)
Function of the head pressure control
As the evaporator discharge pressure drops when the outside temperature drops, gas will by-pass
the roof condenser and be metered into the receiver maintaining an adequate head pressure.
Failure of the head pressure control
A valve incapable of by-pass will effect the refrigeration unit when the outside temperature
drops below 60°F with little or no ice production.
A valve stuck in by-pass will cause high head pressure and effect the ice production capabilities
of the unit.

Multiplex Programmable
Portion Control Timers
What’s New at
Multiplex
We have received some requests to publish descriptions explaining
the differences between the various models of Multiplex
programmable portion control timers. The following is not intended
to be a step by step procedure, but is only a general overview of
the unique features of each timer.
You may now order new
push-button replacement labels
for the 4-Size timers that are
used on the Model CPss150MD200 and Model 116 tower.
The Model 66 was the first programmable portion control timer.
It requires a 9 volt battery to retain its memory during power
outages. Its 3-Size timer utilizes a separate rocker switch for
calibration. To set the drink sizes:
w Turn the calibration rocker switch to the “on” position.
w Push the respective size pad for each keypad position at each
valve.
w Repeat this process for each valve.
w Once complete, turn off the rocker switch to store the
programmed sizes into memory.
The Model 64 is similar to the Model 66, except that the 9 volt
battery is no longer required, since memory is stored on a memory
chip. Its 4-Size timer still requires the rocker switch for calibration.
There are major improvements with the Model 64A Revision B.
The 4-Size timer uses a calibration button, integrated into the
keypad, rather than a rocker switch. A 4 second pour feature permits
easy flow rate adjustments and volume settings for all valves
simultaneously from valve number 1, in an emergency. To adjust
the flow rate:
To replace, peal back worn
push-button label carefully with
a knife edge as shown above.
Peel the covering from the back
of label. Attach new label and
apply light pressure to adhere
the new label to the timer.
Please see below for correct
label to order for your timers.
w Push the CAL pad three (3) times in less than three (3) seconds
to enter calibrate mode. Calibration light will go on.
w Push the STOP/FILL pad once on any valve to achieve a 4
second pour for that valve.
w Once the valve water flow adjustments are complete, push the
CAL pad once to exit calibrate mode. Calibration light will go
out.
P.N. 00214953
To be used with timer cover
(P.N. 0021693).
w To adjust the Brix (water to syrup ration) for each valve, push
the CAL pad three (3) times again.
w Push the respective size for each valve until you achieve the
desired drink level in your cup.
w Exiting calibrate mode (pushing CAL pad once) will lock the
programmed sizes to memory.
The Model 64A Revision C is similar to the Model 64A Revision B
except that the volume settings can be completely accomplished
from any valve. To adjust all valves to the same times:
P.N. 00214954
To be used with timer cover
with soda button
(P.N. 00216094).
w Push CAL pad three (3) times and push the STOP/FILL pad on
any valve (except valve number 1) two (2) times.
w Program each size for that valve.
w Exit calibration mode by pushing CAL pad once. This will lock
the programmed sizes for all valves into memory.
Note: It is extremely important that all valves be adjusted to
exactly the same water flow rate. If any valve is adjusted to a
different flow rate (no matter how slight), it will have to be readjusted separately.

Instructions for Proper Dispensing Valve
Calibration (Flow, Ratio, and Volume)
using the 4-Size Portion Control
Flow (to set the water flow rate only)
Ratio (water to syrup mixture)
Check that the Primary CO2 tank high
pressure regulator or bulk CO2 regulator is
adjusted properly. The Medium pressure
regulator for sugar-based syrup must be adjusted
to 60 psi (4 bar). The Low pressure regulator for
sugar-free syrup must be adjusted to 14-16 psi
(0.9-1.1 bar).
1.
Remove valve nozzle by turning the nozzle and
pulling down.
2.
Place syrup separator on valve to be adjusted.
Actuate the valve manually (pad, lever) until
both syrup and water flow out of the syrup/
water separator.
3.
Position the proper ratio cup under the syrup
separator. Manually actuate the valve pad or
lever valve (pad, lever). Dispense until at least
3
/4 of the ratio cup is filled. Both products
should fill to the same level.
4.
To adjust the syrup flow (if levels are not
equal), turn the syrup flow control adjusting
screw clockwise to increase and counterclockwise to decrease the flow of syrup.
1.
Turn “off” the syrup at the dispensing valve
by turning the syrup shut-off (located on the
valve mounting block). If there is no syrup
shut-off, use a syrup separator.
2.
Check the water shut-off (if applicable). It
should be in the full open position.
Note: The syrup and water shut-off (if
equipped) are not to be used as an alternate for
flow controls. They are to be used only for shutting
on or off the syrup and/or the water supply.

Dual Transformers
Note: Dual Transformers must be wired in phase.*
To determine whether transformers are wired in phase: With power on, take voltage reading at
HOT wire of each transformer. Reading should be 0 VOLTS*. If you read voltage, transformers are
out of phase. The positions of the wires on one transformer must be switched.

MOV’s field testing
Metal Oxide Varistors installed on the water and carbonated water buttons, on McDonald’s style
dispensing towers, are designed to completely absorb electrical spikes keeping them out of the
microprocessor circuit eliminating complaints of:
w Not holding calibration
w Valves flowing by themselves
w Two valves coming on at the same time, etc.
Multiplex has designed a field test procedure that will expose a faulty MOV. This procedure will
also work on the older style capacitors.
The field test procedure:
Depress separately both the water and soda water button rapidly 5-6 times. While doing this,
watch all other valves. If you notice any dripping or any other valve trying to energize, the MOV’s
need to be replaced.
Note: Factory installed MOV’s have heat shrink tubes on each terminal leg. Always check to make
sure that heat shrink has not slipped down and is insulating the MOV leg inside the terminal connector.

Complete System Overview
New Model MPC84A Portion Control Board
A new portion control board, the Model MPC84A, has been developed to improve the
performance and maintain the functions and feature of the previous Model MPC64A. In addition, this
Porction Control board has passed the very demanding EMC (radio frequency emissions and
interference) testing for European CE approval, at the UL labs. The Model MPC64A has been phased
out as of June 1996. Only the Model MPC84A will be used on new production and for service.
The new bard is the same size, has the same mounting locations, and uses the same connectors
as the previous board. This article is to explain the features (which can be used to your advantage)
and minor differences.
The major difference is the same size board. The Model MPC84A can control up to eight stations
(dispensing valves) with up to four sizes per station. The Model MPC64A could control up to six
stations.
The illustration in Figure 1 depicts the connectors on the Model MPC64A. The illustration in
Figure 2 depicts the connectors on the Model MPC84A.
The power connectors J15 and J20 (24 VAC) are the same. The keyboard connectors, J16 for
touchpad and J17 for calibration touchpad, are the same.
The Model MPC84A adds one more two pin keyboard connector, the J1. For an eight station tower,
this connector, along with a separate two wire cable to the proper keyboard, provides the two extra
stations.
The five pin valve connectors, the J7 to J12 on the Model MPC64A, are changed to a two pin
connectors, the J7 to the J14 on the MPC84A. These valve connectors are not polarized (does not
matter how you connect the two pins) except when the valve has a “water” or a “soda” harness.
The calibrating functions of the new portion control board are the same as the old board.

Caution: To Avoid Serious Injury
Important: Read the following warnings before beginning an installation.
Failure to do so may result in possible death or serious injury.
DO Adhere to all National and Local Plumbing and Electrical Safety
Codes.
DO Turn “off” incoming electrical service switches when servicing,
installing, or repairing equipment.
DO Check that all flare fittings on the carbonation tank(s) are tight.
This check should be performed with a wrench to ensure a quality
seal.
DO Inspect pressure on Regulators before starting up equipment.
DO Protect eyes when working around refrigerants.
DO Use caution when handling metal surface edges of all equipment.
DO Handle CO2 cylinders and gauges with care. Secure cylinders
properly against abrasion.
DO Store CO2 cylinder(s) in well ventilated areas.
DO NOT Throw or drop a CO2 cylinder. Secure the cylinder(s) in an upright
position with a chain.
DO NOT Connect the CO2 cylinder(s) directly to the product container.
Doing so will result in an explosion causing possible death or
injury. Best to connect the CO2 cylinder(s) to a regulator(s).
DO NOT Store CO2 cylinders in temperature above 125°F (51.7°C) near
furnaces, radiator or sources of heat.
DO NOT Release CO2 gas from old cylinder.
DO NOT Touch Refrigeration lines inside units, some may exceed
temperatures of 200°F (93.3°C).

Fountain Troubleshooting Guide
Foreword
This Troubleshooting Guide has been developed to assist you in determining what the Probable Cause
for any particular Problem you may experience with your Multiplex Beverage System could be. It then
advises of the proper Corrective Action to be taken to remedy that Problem.
Because of the ever present danger from electrical shock, and the existence of high pressure water
and gas on the system, it is strongly recommended that only qualified service personnel perform actual
repairs.
To use this guide you should first recognize the Problem. Once this has been accomplished, you
should refer to the Problem Cross Reference Guide, which will direct you to the troubleshooting
section or sections which may be responsible for that particular Problem.
Under each of the sections, Section 1: CO2 Gas System, Section 2: Carbonated Water System,
Section 3: Circulating System, Section 4: Compressed Air System, Section 5: Dispensing valve and
tower, Section 6: Electrical System, Section 7: Refrigeration System, Section 8: Syrup System,
Section 9: Water Booster System, and Section 10: Water Filter System, you’ll first find the Problem
listed in bold type starting on the left margin. It will be followed by three headings also in bold type
and each with its own column. The first is a Qualifier which is designed to quickly qualify or eliminate
the Probable Causes listed to the right and below the qualifying statement. Example: Under Section 7:
Refrigeration System, you’ll find three Qualifiers for the same problem, “Warm drinks”. Carbonated
Water Temperature over 40°F (5°C)”. Each asking you to determine the status of the Refrigeration
Compressor and Ice Bank before proceeding to the second column Probable Causes. Not all problems
have Qualifiers, but for those that do, first examine each one listed below the Problem before
continuing through Probable Causes. The third heading, Corrective Action found on the right margin,
will direct you in determining if the Probable Cause is actually responsible for the problem and what
should be done to remedy the problem.
On occasion, you’ll find “Note” and “Caution” statements which have been included to make
special references to items which frequently are misunderstood or ignored.
This guide is intended to assist you in locating the cause of a problem. It is not, however, to be
considered a service and repair manual in that Multiplex models vary in design.
It has been written to encompass all model Refrigeration Units. Some differences from model to
model will become obvious and it will be required of the reader to apply this guide to each unit. Of
main concern, is on Dual Carbonating and Circulating Systems you must consider there are two
separate Carbonating and Circulating Systems.

that it is fully up against the tube stop.
3. Tighten the LOCKING CAP half a turn. If the fitting is not secure, tighten a little further.
4. Make sure fitting is secure.
5. Push Plastictubing into other and of fitting insuring that it is fully up against the tube stop.
To release the fitting from the Stainless Steeltube,
simply unscrew the LOCKING CAP three quarters of
a turn, depressing the collet head as with a

simply tighten the LOCKING CAP until leaking stops.
By doing this you increase the compression sealing
