1.1. Important Owner/User Information
The following two procedures must be completed before this machine is placed in service:
1. Ensure the safety of all laundry personnel.
2. Customize the data contained in the memory of the machine (configuration, formulas, and
productivity/formula accumulator data).
1.1.1.
Ensure Safety of All Laundry Personnel
Ensure that all personnel who will operate or maintain this machine read the safety manual before
permitting them to access the machine. Ensure that all user manuals are available to the appropriate
personnel and that all precautions explained in all applicable manuals are observed.
1.1.2.
Customize Data
Customizing the data includes verifying that the controller is configured for the particular
application, modifying certain wash programs if necessary for optimum productivity, and verifying
that the formula count accumulator is cleared so the formula count will be accurate.
1.1.2.1.
When to Customize Data
•
•
•
•
•
When commissioning the machine
When required by error message
After replacing the microprocessor board
After upgrading the software
After adding or removing optional equipment
1.1.2.2.
What Customizing Requires—Verify configuration. Program formulas and clear
productivity data, if applicable. See the programming and operating sections in this manual for
instructions.
1.1.2.3.
Data Accessibility—Configuration and formula data can only be altered while the keyswitch
is in the Program position (data is protected by the keyswitch). Productivity data, because it is
accumulated in the Run mode, cannot be protected by the keyswitch and is accessible to anyone.
Data is accessible to the extent described in Table 3.

1.2. Determining Load Size
Putting too much linen into a properly designed laundry washer-extractor will not overload the
machine to its mechanical or electrical detriment if these guidelines are followed:
1. The goods consist of typical cotton and/or synthetic fabrics normally encountered in
commercial laundering operations.
2. The load is not so bulky as to prevent a reasonably balanced distribution prior to the onset of
extraction.
3. The extract speed has not been increased above the designed maximum.
4. The total number of intermediate and final extractions do not exceed the designed maximum
for the extract motor.
Thus, the maximum soiled linen capacity for any properly designed washer-extractor is
essentially limited by the amount of soiled goods that can actually be placed in the cylinder.
The maximum weight of soiled goods that a washer-extractor cylinder will accept depends on the
following factors:
• the internal volume of the cylinder (the space into which the goods can be placed), and
• the density (weight and bulkiness) of the specific goods
For example, many polyester-cotton fabrics have relatively low weights for their bulk so one
should rarely expect to be able to put in a published maximum capacity load of such fabrics. In fact,
published maximum capacities of machines based on the now generally accepted industry
standards will usually be achieved only with the highest density, closely woven fabrics and a
reasonable soil content.
The best load size depends on the size of the machine—plus the type of goods, soil content, and
wash quality desired. Since the latter factors vary considerably, prior experience and/or
experimentation generally yield the best results. Use these guidelines:
1. Overloading a washer-extractor will not increase production because longer wash formulas and
more rewash will be required.
2. Avoid underloads because the inevitable greater extraction imbalance will cause more extract
re-cycles and may stress the machine unnecessarily.

1.3. Important Instructions for Pumped Chemical Inlets
1.3.1.
How Pumped Chemical Systems can Internally Damage the
Washer-extractor
Many pumped liquid chemical systems dribble concentrated chemicals out of the injection tubes
when the system is not used for relatively long periods of time—as after working hours and during
weekends. This puts highly concentrated corrosive chemicals in direct contact with dry stainless
steel surfaces, and often directly on any textiles left in the machine. Chemical deterioration
(rusting) of the stainless steel and damage to the textiles is the inevitable result.
Pellerin Milnor Corporation accepts absolutely no responsibility whatsoever for damage to its
equipment or to any textiles therein when concentrated chemicals dribble out of the injection
tubes onto any part of the machine or its contents.
Supplement 1
Preventing Dribbling by Purging Chemical Lines
Although the injection site is flushed by washer agitation on some models and after each injection
on other models to aid the injection process, this flushing provides absolutely no protection
against harmful dribble which occurs later—when the machine is no longer in use.
One foolproof solution for “dribbling” is to completely purge the appropriate chemical injection
tube with fresh water after every injection, so that only fresh water (which cannot cause a
problem) can dribble out.
Obviously, it is the sole responsibility of the pump and/or chemical supplier (not the machine
manufacturer) to furnish such a flushing device. (We understand that such flushing type chemical
injection systems—both for retrofit to existing systems and for new installations—are now
offered by others.)
1.3.2.
Locating Chemical System Components to Reduce the Risk of
Internal Damage
If the tubes, pumps, and chemical tanks are kept well below the injection point, the likelihood of
“after-hours dribbling” is reduced, but not totally eliminated.
We therefore urge that tubes from any non-flushing pumped chemical system be connected as
shown in Figure 2. Although fresh-water flushing the just-used tubes after each injection would be
better, we believe routing the tubes as indicated will probably minimize the dribbling effect about
as much as possible without flushing. Never permit tanks, pumps, or any portion of the tubes to be
higher than the injection point. If loops in the injection tubes are employed, make sure the entire
loop is well below the injection point.
PELLERIN MILNOR CORPORATION
Chapter 1. Commissioning
Figure 2: Proper Routing of Chemical Tubing
Note 1: As shown in Figure 2, all tanks, pumps, and tubing must be lower than the injection point on the
machine and must not dribble chemicals into the machine, nor leak chemicals externally onto any portion of
the machine or its surroundings.
1.3.3.
Preventing Leaks Which Can Injure Personnel and Cause
External Damage
Any ports on the inlet are plugged at the Milnor® factory. When replacing plugs with fittings or
when reinstalling plugs, always use the sealant furnished (LocTite® RTV Silicone Adhesive or
equivalent). Use properly sized hose barbs, always use clamps, and check for leaks. Use the hose
barbs furnished with your machine only if they provide the proper fit for the tubes employed.
Ensure that excessive pressures cannot build up that might burst or disconnect tubing. Instruct the
operator to monitor for leaks and report any occurences.
When calibrating injections, it is permissible to remove tubes from barbed fittings to take samples.
However, always check for leaks after installing tubes and clamps. A preferable method for
sampling is to install a three-way valve, or two two-way valves and a tee fitting, onto each injection
tube.
WARNING 1 : Avoid chemical burns and corrosion—Concentrated liquid chemicals
leaking from a chemical system can burn skin and eyes, cause other types of injury or illness, and
corrode machine components.
• Ensure that excessive pressures cannot build up which might burst or disconnect a chemical
delivery tube.
• Ensure that there are no external chemical leaks when the system is installed or calibrated.
• Periodically check the system for leaks during operation.
CAUTION 2 : Avoid corrosion and textile damage—Chemicals dribbling into the machine
when it is idle will corrode machine components and damage any textiles left in the machine.
• If possible, use a system that flushes the entire chemical delivery tube after each injection.
• If a non-flushing system is used, install tanks, pumps, and tubing below the injection point
on the machine, such that chemicals travel to the machine at an upward angle.
CAUTION 3 : Avoid explosions—Certain chemicals will react chemically when combined.
Consult with your chemical supplier representative about the safe use of chemicals.

1.4. Connecting Chemical Systems
Multiple methods are available on E-P Plus® washer-extractors to accommodate chemical systems.
Use this section to help determine the best method of chemical injection and how to connect the
chemical system. Always consult the schematic manual for this machine before connecting
chemical systems to the machine.
DANGER 5 : Electric Shock Hazard—Contact with high voltage electricity will kill or
seriously injure you. Even with the Master Switch off and/or any Emergency Stop switches off,
three-phase power and control circuit power are still present at several locations within electric
boxes and electrical components.
DANGER 6 : Injury and Damage Hazards—Improper wiring can cause the machine to
malfunction, risking injury to personnel, damage to machine components, and damage to goods.
• Electrical and piping connections described in this section must be made only by qualified,
authorized personnel.
PELLERIN MILNOR CORPORATION
Chapter 1. Commissioning
• Lock off and tag out power at the external disconnect switches for the washer-extractor and
for any chemical devices that provide power to the interpret relay box (if furnished) before
proceeding.
• Do not rely merely on the information in this section when wiring. Consult all applicable
electrical schematics.
• Do not reroute or rearrange any wires not specifically permitted by this instruction.
• Do not connect a common wire to ground. Use the common terminal furnished.
CAUTION 7 : Risk of Poor or Inconsistent Wash Quality—Injection times of less than 10
seconds are discouraged because fine adjustments are not possible and factors such as pump lag
time may cause significant variations in the amount of chemical delivered.
• Size pumps or valves small enough for adequate control (i.e., for longer injection times).
• Use two pumps or valves to inject a small or large quantity of the same chemical, if
required.
Supplement 2
Maximizing Chemical Injection Precision
Injection of a consistent amount of chemical is important in controlling wash quality and using
chemicals economically. When chemicals are injected by units of time, as is done with most
washer-extractors, injections of short duration can be imprecise because of two reasons:
• Fine adjustments to the delivered quantity are not possible. For example, if an injection of
three seconds is extended by one second, the quantity delivered is theoretically increased by
more than 30 percent. However, if an injection of 20 seconds is increased by one second, the
theoretical quantity is increased by only five percent.
• Variations in the time between the start of the chemical signal and the start of the chemical
delivery into the machine can cause significant differences in the quantity of chemical
injected. In this case, if a pump starts more slowly some times than others, or if the delivery
tubes are partially empty at the start of the inject period, the quantity of chemical delivered
may vary significantly. As an example, assume a peristaltic pump moves chemical along the
delivery tube at a rate of three feet per second. If the delivery tube is empty for three feet
along its length, then one second of the injection time is spent injecting air rather than
chemical. If the programmed injection time is only three seconds, then one third of the
desired chemical is not being delivered. However, if the programmed injection time is 20
seconds, the chemical delivery is only five percent less than desired.
Increasing the programmed injection time makes any variation less significant. Use pumps
and/or valves sized to allow inject times of at least 10 seconds. If injection times for a specific
chemical vary widely from one formula to another, consider using two pumps or valves for
the same chemical. Actuate one pump for injecting small quantities, and use both pumps or
valves for larger quantities.
1.4.1.
Available Chemical Injection Methods
All machine models are equipped with a chemical chute for the introduction of dry chemical
supplies directly into the bath liquor. Automatic or manual flushing is provided on most models to
reduce the risk of corrosion. One or more other chemical injection devices, described below, are
available according to machine model.
PELLERIN MILNOR CORPORATION
Chapter 1. Commissioning
1.4.1.1.
Chemical Injection Output Signals—Five discrete signals (for chemicals 1 through 5) are
furnished standard on all washer extractors. These signals are available at a terminal strip on all E-P
Plus® machines. Check the nameplate on the machine to verify the model.
Starting with E-P Plus software version WUH7JA/2200N, Milnor provides six discrete chemical
signals on H_J and X_J washer-extractors. The sixth chemical signal is between MTA3-1
(common) and MTA3-10.
1.4.1.2.
Optional Five-Compartment Flushing Chemical Injector—An externally mounted
five-compartment dry supply injector is offered as an option on some models. The five electrically
operated flush valves are wired to chemical injection output signals at a terminal strip on the
machine (usually terminal strip TBA).
1.4.1.3.
Liquid Chemical Tube Connectors—A five or six port liquid chemical inlet manifold is
standard equipment on most models. Use these valveless inlets to connect tubes from remote
chemical supply injection systems that are not continuously pressurized and that deliver chemicals
only when an injection is commanded.
1.4.2.
Considerations for Pumped Chemical Systems
Pumped chemical systems deliver chemicals to the machine intermittently usually via peristaltic
pumps. Inlets on the machine must be unrestricted at all times (valveless). The supplied pumped
chemical inlets meet this requirement.
An inherent risk of this method of chemical injection is that concentrated chemicals can dribble
into the machine after it is shut down for the evening, causing machine and/or linen damage.
Because Milnor® has no control over the design or installation of pumped chemical systems,
Pellerin Milnor Corporation accepts absolutely no responsibility for damage to its equipment or
textiles therein caused in this way. Much more information on this subject is provided in Section
1.3. “Important Instructions for Pumped Chemical Inlets”. Consult this document before
connecting a pumped chemical system.

For 36-inch and 42-inch V_J models, injection signals provide either 110VAC/50Hz or
120VAC/60Hz potential. For 30-inch V_J and all F_J/F_B, H_J, and X_J models, injection signals
provide either 220VAC/50Hz or 240VAC/60Hz potential. Each signal can accomodate one
apparatus not exceeding 37 milliamperes. Inject signals cannot be made potential-free.
CAUTION 8 : Avoid Component Damage—Board components will burn out and require
board replacement if devices driven by inject signals do not meet the electrical specifications.
Pumps generally draw a higher current and will burn out board components.
1.4.4.
Connecting Chemicals to H_J, X_J, and 30-inch V_J Models
Acquire signals at connector TBS near the rear access panel, next to the incoming power
connections. See Table 4 for connection details.

2.2. Selecting an Industry Formula Set
This document applies to Milnor® washer-extractors using the Milnor® “188 Processor EP+”
processor board. This board can be positively identified by “P/N 08BH18EP_ ” appearing near the
Milnor® logo on the processor board.
The Milnor® factory configures each E-P Plus® washer-extractor controller for the industry
specified by the purchaser when the machine is ordered. The configuration process consists of
setting the DIP switches on the processor board and may include installing the appropriate industry
nameplate on some models. At the owner's discretion, the DIP switch settings controlling the
available formulas may be changed in the field, and new industry nameplates may be obtained from
your dealer or the Milnor® parts department.
To change industry configuration, turn the machine off. Then lock off and tag out power to the
machine at the wall disconnect before accessing the processor board.
DANGER 9 : Electrocution hazard—Contact with electric power can kill or seriously injure
you. Electric power is present inside the cabinetry unless the main machine power disconnect is
off.
The location of the DIP switches on the microprocessor board are shown in Figure 5, as are
examples of the on and off positions. Set the switches to the desired configuration according to
Table 5. Turn the machine on; the display will show the current configuration.
CAUTION 10 : Risk of improper configuration—On some machines, the processor board is
installed in the control box so that the labels printed on the DIP switch appear inverted.
• Do not assume that the switch is right side up. Always reference the labels (OFF, ON, 1, 2,
etc.) printed on the switch when setting DIP switches.

2.3. Programming the E-P Plus® Controller
The microprocessor controller used in this washer extractor operates in three modes, depending on
whether the machine is processing goods (the Run mode or Formula menu), being programmed
with operating characteristics to be used when a wash formula is started (the Program mode), or
being tested (the Manual or Test mode). This document describes the available operator actions and
display feedback in the Program mode.
The Program mode is accessible only when the Run/Program keyswitch is set to the Program
position (P), as described below. From the Program menu, there are four options available:
• Option 0: OK TURN KEY TO RUN (detailed in Section 2.3.2)
• Option 1: ADD/CHANGE FORMULA (detailed in Section 2.3.3)
• Option 2: CONFIGURE (detailed in Section 2.3.4)
• Option 3: STANDARD FORMULAS
PELLERIN MILNOR CORPORATION

PELLERIN MILNOR CORPORATION
Chapter 2. Programming
Supplement 3
What are Formulas, Steps, and Decisions?
In this manual a wash formula is all actions automatically performed by the machine from when
the operator starts the loaded machine until the machine stops all operations. The end of a
formula is usually indicated by an audible operator signal.
Formulas are made up of several types of steps, each with several variables which are determined
when the operator or other qualified person programs the formula. Steps are either baths or
extractions (extracts), each of which can be programmed with certain characteristics. For a
typical bath step the formula may cause the basket to alternate between clockwise and
counter-clockwise for a specified time, the hot and cold water valves to open until the machine
fills to low level, and signal the chemical supply system to inject alkali and detergent. When both
the required and user-defined actions of a step are completed, the next step begins. The formula
ends and the operator signal is activated after the last programmed step (often a high-speed
extract step) is executed.
Each step is formed through several programming decisions, which are questions asked by the
machine controller. The person programming the formula answers these questions to build the
wash formula. Most programming decisions consist of choosing one option from a list of possible
answers; for example, the water level decision in a bath step can be answered with either “1” for
low level or “2” for high level. Other programming decisions, such as step time and bath
temperature, require entry of a specific value.
The user interface employs similar procedures for creating a new formula and for changing an
existing formula. Both procedures are detailed below, in Section 2.3.3.3 “Create a New Formula”
and Section 2.3.3.5 “Change an Existing Formula”. The control system will inform the person
programming the machine whether the selected formula has already been programmed.

This is a typical Type of Step decision display. The actual format
of the display varies according to the specific machine controller
and certain configure decisions.
End formula: The last step of each formula must be of type 0. This
step is automatically added as a last step if the previous step is
type 6 (final extract). The basket moves or stops as directed by the
How to End programming decision, described in Section
2.3.3.5.7. A formula may be ended without a final extract by
setting the last step to type 0. If the last step before the End
Formula step is a type other than final extract, the controller will
ask “End Formula #xx?”.
Setting the first step of an existing formula to type 0 deletes the
formula, as described in Section 2.3.3.4 “Delete an Existing
Formula”.
1
One-way wash: Washing routine which may increase mechanical
action and reduce energy consumption to some degree. Use for
smaller pieces where tangling and “roping” is not a consideration.
The basket rotates clockwise at the programmed wash speed for
the duration of the step.
2
Two-way wash: Washing routine for items which tend to rope and
tangle unless reversed. The basket rotates clockwise for some
period of time, then pauses for a few seconds before rotating in the
opposite direction.
3
Soak wash: The cylinder does not turn when this step type is
programmed. Use this step type only when no mechanical action
is required, as for especially delicate fabrics. Consider chemical
concentrations, bath time, and liquor temperature when using this
type of step.
4
Intermediate extract 1 (E1): This is low extract speed for H_J,
F_J, V_J, and X_J models. For other models, this is low extract
speed, used for extractions between baths or for final extract at
low speed if machine has two-speed extract.
5
This selection differs with machine model. For F_J, H_J, V_J, and
X_J models, this causes an intermediate extract (E2). For other
models, this is the final extract sequence. In final extract the
machine runs at intermediate extract speed for a duration
determined by machine model and configuration, then runs at
high extract speed for the remainder of the programmed extract
time. The formula ends when the commanded extract time
expires.
6
Final extract (E3): For certain models only, this is the sequence
leading to the highest extract speed. The machine executes an
intermediate extract 1 (E1) for a duration of 100 seconds. After
100 seconds at E1, the machine accelerates to E3 (high extract
speed) for the remainder of the programmed extract time. When
the programmed extract time ends, the cylinder stops and the
formula ends.

Explanation
CAUTION 13 : Avoid damage to extract motor—For H_J model machines with software
date code 95005 or earlier, the minimum valid time for a final extract step is 1:45 (MMQ=013).
Attempts to program final extract steps shorter than 1:45 may cause the controller to continue
indefinitely in high extract. Machines running software dated 95006 or later will terminate at the
programmed time, but short extract times may not allow the machine to achieve high extract speed.
• Never program a final extract step for less than 1:45 (MMQ=013) unless the machine has
software dated 95006 or later.
• If the step timer stops counting down at about 1:20 in a final extract, press z to terminate
the program, then edit the formula to increase the duration of the final extract beyond 1:45.

11.75 minutes; 11:45
633
63.75 minutes; 63:45 is the maximum programmable time for any
single step. To achieve a bath time longer than 63:45, program
two consecutive bath steps with the first ending with a No Drain.
This effectively doubles the maximum allowable bath time.
The total time required for a formula to run to completion includes factors other than the total of the
times of each step in the formula. For these machines, add 0:40 distribution time each time the
machine enters an extract step from a bath step. Also, add 1:00 for each standard drain (drain
speed), or 1:00 for each two-way wash drain.

Supplement 4
How to Modulate Water Valves to Regulate Incoming Water Temperature
When programming a thermo-modulated temperature for a bath using both hot and cold water
valves, the relationship between the desired temperature and the temperature of a split fill (hot
and cold valves open simultaneously) is important.
If the desired temperature is hotter than the normal split temperature, a faster, more accurate fill
with a more constant temperature is achieved by programming the hot water valve open (H=1)
and the cold water valve to open only to lower the fill temperature (C=3).
If the desired temperature is colder than the normal split temperature, similar results can be
achieved by programming the hot water valve to open only to raise the fill temperature (H=2) and
the cold water valve to remain open constantly (C=1).
2.3.3.5.3.
How to Use Cooldown—A cooldown bath is used to gradually lower the temperature of goods
(usually synthetics and blended fabrics) to reduce the chance of setting wrinkles. When a cooldown
is programmed, the drain type for the previous bath step is automatically changed to Do Not Drain,
so the goods are not cooled too quickly by coming in direct contact with the incoming cooldown
water.
These items are required before the controller will allow you to program a cooldown step:
1. The machine must be equipped with a separate cooldown water valve. This valve and its
associated piping reduces the flow of cold water into the machine so the temperature falls
gradually.
PELLERIN MILNOR CORPORATION
Chapter 2. Programming
2. The machine must be configured for temperature control (Temp Control = YES) as described
in Section 2.3.4.2.
3. The machine must be configured for cooldown (Cooldown Error = 1, 2, or 3) as described in
Section 2.3.4.2.
4. The bath step with the high temperature must immediately precede the cooldown step, and it
must have a temperature programmed in degrees (for example, 180 degrees Fahrenheit).
Failure to program a temperature in the bath preceding a cooldown results in an error message.

Explanation
This is a typical step preceding a cooldown step. Note that a
specific temperature is programmed (shown in bold).
A cooldown is programmed as a separate bath step following the bath in which the cooldown is
desired. In the cooldown step, command a desired cooldown temperature with all water valves
programmed off (0). The E-P Plus® control automatically inserts a no drain in the previous bath
and 010 in MMQ for the cooldown step, for a step time of 1:00.
Display or Action
03 TMMQFFFHC LSCWSS*
04 201010000 -------
Explanation
This is a typical cooldown step. Note that all configured water
valves are programmed off. The programmed step time for a
cooldown will always be changed to one minute (MMQ = 010).
Any valid bath step type may be used here (T = 1, 2, or 3)
Note 2: The commanded cooldown temperature must always be at least 15 degrees Fahrenheit (8 degrees
Celsius) hotter than the hottest ambient temperature or the hottest cold water temperature that will be
encountered. If this rule is not followed, achieving the desired cooler temperature may take a long time, or
even be impossible.
During operation, the cooldown bath step starts immediately when the previous (high-temperature)
bath ends.
1. The cooldown valve opens when the cooldown step begins. The cooldown valve does not close
until the end of the cooldown step.
2. When high water level is achieved, the drain opens until the water level falls below high level,
then the drain closes.
3. The drain continues to open and close as needed to maintain high water level.
4. The step timer starts 15 seconds after the desired cooldown temperature is achieved. The timer
runs for one minute.
PELLERIN MILNOR CORPORATION
Chapter 2. Programming
5. When the one-minute step time expires, the cooldown valve closes and the drain opens. The
drain remains closed only if the machine was programmed to not drain, as to prolong the
cooldown or allow the injection of chemicals into the cooler bath.

no steam in this bath
The available steam codes are combinations of three yes/no decisions, as described below. These
decisions are summarized in Table 6.
• Early defines when steaming should begin. Answer Yes to start steaming at the lowest safe
level. Answer No if steaming should only begin after the commanded level is achieved.
Usually, a “Start Steaming Early” code (4, 5, or 6) is used when the machine receives only cold
water or when the hot water in the plant has a relatively low temperature. Use a No response if
the machine has both hot and cold water valves and the commanded temperature is lower than
the hot water temperature.
• After defines whether steam is allowed in this bath after temperature has been achieved once
and subsequently fallen below the commanded temperature. A No response prevents a second
steaming after temperature is first achieved. Use No if chemicals or goods may be damaged by
steam after a chemical injection (as in bleach baths). Answer Yes if temperature should be
maintained for the full duration of the bath step and goods or chemistry will not be adversely
affected by the introduction of steam into the cylinder.
• Timer defines whether the timer runs or stops while steaming up to temperature. Stops causes
the timer to stop counting until the commanded temperature is first achieved. Runs is for use
when some temperature fluctuations are acceptable or when it is certain that the commanded
temperature will be nearly achieved while filling. Use Stops if temperature must be achieved
before adding chemicals, otherwise software will suppress this chemical-add choice.

CAUTION 14 : Risk of Poor or Inconsistent Wash Quality—If the duration of each
chemical injection is determined by the E-P Plus controller, chemical injections should always
have a duration of at least 10 seconds. With shorter injection times, fine adjustments are not
possible, and variations in response times have an exaggerated effect on the quantity delivered.
• Select pumps or valves of the appropriate size to provide for longer injection times.
• If quantities of one chemical must vary greatly among formulas, use two pumps or valves
for that chemical.
• If the injection duration is controlled by the chemical supply system (from others), then the
injection duration programmed at the washer-extractor controller need only be sufficient to
ensure detection by the chemical system.

Explanation
Select a drain type for this bath step. This decision controls
whether the drain valve opens or remains closed when this bath
step ends, and how the basket rotates (if at all) while the machine
is filling and draining. Some of the selections below are valid only
if the step following this bath is another bath step. For example,
programming this decision as 1=Two way wash speed is not
allowed before an extract step because the goods would not be
evenly distributed around the basket when the machine
accelerated to extract speed.
Notice 17 : Selected drain type may change automatically—The controller requires that
the basket always accelerate to drain speed before advancing to extract speed, even if a stop or
bath-speed drain type is programmed.
• Standard and stop at fill drain types are valid for bath steps followed by any other type of
step.
• Two-way wash speed, do not drain, and stop at drain drain types will automatically change
to a standard drain when an extract is programmed as the next step.
• A stop at fill and drain drain type will automatically change to a stop at fill drain type when
an extract is programmed as the next step.

Standard drain speed—Basket turns clockwise at drain
(distribution) speed while draining. Standard drain speed varies
by machine model, but is designed to impart about one G of
acceleration to the goods. Basket movement while filling is
determined by the Type of step decision and the specific design of
the machine). Standard drain speed is valid for all following step
types and with any configuration of options.
1
Two-way wash speed—While draining, the basket reverses at
wash speed to provide more mechanical action among the goods.
Do not use this selection if the next step will be an extract. If a
bath is programmed with this option, then an extract is
programmed immediately following the bath step, the controller
will change the drain code from 1=Two-way wash speed to
0=Standard drain speed (see Notice 17 above Table 8).
2
Do not drain—Bath liquor is retained for later operations in this
same bath. Chemicals may be added, and temperature or level
may be raised without draining. Basket movement during the fill
phase of this step is determined by the Type of step decision. The
next step begins immediately when the time for this step expires.
This selection is not available if the next step is an extract. As
described in Notice 17 above Table 8, if a bath is programmed
with this option, then an extract is programmed immediately
following the bath step, the controller will change the drain code
from 2=Do not drain to 0=Standard drain speed.
3
Stop with fill—The basket is kept stationary during the fill phase
of this step, but rotates at drain speed while draining. This
selection minimizes friction among the goods before they are
thoroughly wetted. Standard drain speed during the drain phase
better distributes the goods around the basket, and fabric abrasion
is less likely because the goods are thoroughly wet from the
just-completed bath.
PELLERIN MILNOR CORPORATION
Chapter 2. Programming
Display or Action
Explanation
4
Stop with drain—The basket is kept stationary while draining to
prevent abrasion from mechanical action. During the fill phase of
this step, basket motion is controlled by the Type of step decision.
This selection is not valid if the next step is an extract. If a bath is
programmed with this option, then an extract is programmed
immediately following the bath step, the controller will change
the drain code from 4=Stop with drain to 0=Standard drain
speed.
5
Stop with fill and drain—The basket is held stationary during
both the fill and drain phases of this step. Basket rotation, as
determined by the Type of step decision, begins only after the
desired level is achieved. This selection is not valid if the next step
is an extract. If a bath is programmed with this option, then an
extract is programmed immediately following the bath step, the
controller will change the drain code from 5=Stop with fill and
drain to 3=Stop with fill.

Configure the Control (Option 2) [Document BICJUC01]
Because the microprocessor control system used in this machine is capable of controlling several
different models with a wide variety of options, each unit must be configured to match its specific
model and type of washer-extractor. This configuration informs the microprocessor of the
characteristics of this machine, such as the number of water valves, the presence of temperature
control, cooldown, etc. Such decisions are discrete to the specific machine and must never be
changed unless options are later added or removed. In addition to these hardware-specific decisions,
certain configuration choices, such as the display of English or metric units, are left to the
discretion of the owner/operator.
Tip: The Milnor® E-P Plus® Programmer software for Microsoft Windows allows the user to configure
the machine and program formulas on a personal computer, then download the data to each
machine through a special cable (Milnor part number KXMDSWBRS1). With the E-P Plus
Programmer, descriptive names for each formula can be created and downloaded. When a machine
is configured by using the front panel controls instead of the programmer software, all descriptive
formula names will be replaced with “Formula XX,” where XX is the formula number.
CAUTION 19 : Configure Data may be Lost—If the controller loses power either
accidentally or intentionally while in the Configure mode, all configuration data may be corrupted.
Reconfigure the controller at installation and any time a memory error is detected. Although certain

Accepts the selected value for the current decision and advances
the cursor to the next decision, regardless of the status of the help
screen. This action is required for each configuration decision.
Select 0=No if this machine is not equipped with steam,
cooldown, or the equipment required to provide or control these
optional functions. If 0=No is selected, the next available decision
will be Water Level Units.
Select 1=Yes if this machine is equipped with the necessary
valves and supply piping to perform steaming and/or cooldown,
as well as any necessary electronic boards to control these
options.

Explanation
Select from options 1 through 3 if steam is available: 1 = 5
minutes, 2 = 10 minutes, and 3 = 50 minutes. The number of
minutes selected is the maximum time that the machine will steam
in an attempt to achieve the desired temperature before a steam
error is displayed. This self-clearing error does not stop machine
operation. However, for formula steps where the timer is
commanded to stop while steaming until the desired temperature
is achieved, production may be severly restricted by steam errors.
COOLDOWN ERROR ?
0 = NO COOLDOWN
0
This decision appears only if the machine is configured, and
equipped with the mechanical and electrical hardware for
temperature control (described above).
Select 0=No Cooldown if the machine is not equipped for
cooldown, as in the case of a machine with temperature control
used exclusively for steaming.
Select from options 1 through 3 if cooldown is available: 1 = 5
minutes, 2 = 10 minutes, and 3 = 20 minutes. The number of
minutes selected is the maximum time that the machine will
cooldown in an attempt to achieve the desired temperature before
an error is displayed. The error is self-clearing and does not stop
machine operation. However, production may be severly
restricted by cooldown errors if the cooldown temperature is set
lower than the incoming cold water temperature.
WATER LEVEL UNITS?
0=CM 1=INCHES
1
Select 0=CM to have the water level displayed in centimeters.
Select 1=Inches to display water level in inches.
OFFSET HEIGHT ?
18
This value is set at the Milnor® factory to compensate for the
height difference between bottom of the cylinder and the location
of the pressure tube connection on the drain sump. Because the
pressure tube between the pressure transducer and the cylinder
connects at an elevation not exactly equal to the bottom of the
cylinder, this value allows for an accurate display of the water
level. The unit of this value is tenths of an inch, so a difference of
1.8 inches is entered as 18. The maximum allowable value is 3
inches prior to software version 97004, and 4.5 inches with
software versions 97004 and later.
LEVEL 1 HEIGHT ?
6
This value is the depth of the water measured from the bottom of
the cylinder shell. This level will be used for any programmed
bath step commanding Level 1. Level 1 must be achieved before
steam is allowed in any bath commanding steam.
The minimum level that can be configured for Level 1 is 5 inches
(13 centimeters) for V_J models. The minimum setting for H_J
models is 4 inches (10 centimeters). See Table 10 for
recommended water levels.

LEVEL 2 HEIGHT ?
8
Explanation
This value is the depth of the water measured from the bottom of
the cylinder shell. This level will be used for any programmed
bath step commanding Level 2.
The minimum valid value for this decision is equal to the value of
the Level 1 Height configured just before.
Use the same procedure to configure Levels 3 through 6 that you
used to configure Level 2. Keep in mind that each level must be
equal to or greater than the previous level. The maximum level
that can be configured is 15 inches (38 centimeters) for V_J
models. The maximum setting for H_J models is 16 inches (40
centimeters). See Table 10 for recommended water levels.

Explanation
The following two configure decisions are available on F_J and V_J models with software
WUV7J1B/2200L and later and H_J and X_J models using software WUH7J1A/2200G and later.
The decisions allow the person programming the machine to program alternate ON and OFF times
for basket rotation during wash steps. The values configured here are used only when a wash step is
programmed with a basket speed (SPD decision) of 2 or 3.
Notice 21 : Avoid unexpected values—Because of the nature of the memory used to store
configure decisions, the values for alternate ON time and alternate OFF time may range randomly
between three and 255 seconds before the values are configured the first time. This will not damage
the machine, but might cause unexpected operation if wash speed 2 or 3 is programmed.
• Understand the consequences of all programming decisions before creating new formulas
or changing the existing default formulas.
• To remove the random values from these two decisions and make wash speeds 2 and 3
equivalent to wash speeds 0 and 1, configure the alternate ON time for 20 seconds and the
alternate OFF time to 3 seconds.
ALT. ON TIME ?
ALT. OFF TIME ?

003
This value is the time in seconds the motor drives the basket when
wash speed 2 or 3 is selected. The range for this value is 003
seconds to 255 seconds.
003
This value is the time in seconds the motor is off between basket
reversals when wash speed 2 or 3 is selected. The range for this
value is 003 seconds to 255 seconds.
Restoring the Standard Formulas [Document BICJUP01]
Programming mode 3 allows the owner/operator with access to a programming key to perform
either of these two actions:
1. Option 0 replaces all existing formulas with the factory default formulas for the selected
industry configuration. This selection replaces formulas 1 through 10 with the standard
industry formulas and removes all data from formulas 11 through 30.
2. Option 1 replaces only formulas 1 through 10 with the standard industry formulas. This leaves
any user-programmed data in formulas 11 through 30 intact.
CAUTION 22 : Avoid Data Loss—Other than the two methods described above, it is not
possible to selectively delete field-modified or field-programmed formulas with this programming
mode. This mode erases all field-programmed formulas 1 through 10 or 1 through 30 as specified.
For selective deletions and modifications, use Program mode 1 (Add/Change Formula).

• Record all configure data from the Slave machine before beginning the download,
especially “Offset Height.” Restore this value to the Slave machine after the download is
finished.
• For best results both machines in a machine-to-machine transfer must be identical models
with identical options and controller software, and industry configuration (e.g., 36026V6J
with steam, hot and cold water; software version WUV7J1B/2200K; and configured for
Commercial Laundry facilities).
Notice 24 : For data transfer to succeed, the processor boards on all included washer-extractors
must have the Milnor part number specified in Table 11 with the specified software installed.
• The Milnor part number for the processor board appears on a white sticker near the Milnor
logo on the processor board.
• The revision level of the processor board is white lettering stamped directly on the green

Explanation
Turn off power to the machine before connecting the serial
memory storage device or connecting the two machines together.
Connect the storage device to the machine, or the two machines
together, using the 9-pin round connector.
Apply power to the machine(s). The storage device receives
power through the connector from the power supply in the
machine.
Turn the key on the storage device to Clear Memory, then return
the key to the normal vertical position. This process is handled
automatically when transferring from one machine to another.
The Ready light on the storage device will remain off until the
clearing process is complete. The clearing process is fully
automatic and requires no user action beyond turning the key to
Clear Memory and returning it to the normal position.
When the Ready light comes on again (after about 45 seconds),
the storage device is ready to accept data from the machine
controller.
CAUTION 25 : Ensure Data Integrity—Clear the memory storage device before saving data
to it.
• The memory storage device will hold all programming and configuration data for one
machine, and can be re-used many times. However, this device will only accept new data
when it's empty.
• Attempts to save data to a storage device that has not been cleared will fail, even if the
procedure appears successful.

Applying Power
Display or Action
Explanation
R
The Run/Program keyswitch must be set to the Run position
before the main wall disconnect (fuse or circuit breaker) is closed
to provide power to the machine.
When power is first applied to the machine, the display shows the software copyright information,
machine name, and the checksum number. The checksum number changes with any programming
change. To detect unauthorized programming, record the checksum at the end of each authorized
programming session and compare it to the checksum displayed at each power up.
Some Milnor® washer extractors with E-P Plus® controls do not use a speed sensing device to
verify that the basket has stopped rotating. Therefore, when power is first applied to the machine, at
least 80 seconds must elapse before any further operations can be attempted. This provides
sufficient time for the basket to coast to a complete stop if power was lost while the machine was in
a high speed extract and restored before the basket stopped.
DANGER 28 : Entanglement Hazard—The linen inside or hanging partially outside a turning
cylinder can suddenly wrap around your hand, arm, or body. The inertia of the spinning cylinder
can cause the entangled linen to twist off or sever body parts. You can be killed or seriously

Unloading the Machine
How a formula ends may depend on the machine type, how the last step of the formula was
programmed, and whether the formula finishes without interruption or is terminated manually.
DANGER 29 : Entanglement Hazard—The linen inside or hanging partially outside a turning
cylinder can suddenly wrap around your hand, arm, or body. The inertia of the spinning cylinder
can cause the entangled linen to twist off or sever body parts. You can be killed or seriously
injured.
• Never put any part of your body inside this machine or touch the linen while the machine is
turning.
When the formula ends or is terminated, the cylinder coasts for 25 seconds if the last step was a
bath step. If the last step was an extract, the coast time may be as much as 180 seconds. These times
are sufficient for the controller to be sure the cylinder has stopped before unlocking the door and
allowing access to the cylinder.

then followed by the next commanded step.
If the outage occured during an extract step, the previous bath will
be repeated before the extract step begins.

How the Flush Valve Works
The E-P Plus® controller provides an output signal that activates the flush valve for 20 to 30
seconds after the last chemical has been injected into each bath. If a bath is shortened or terminated
before or while this valve is energized, the flush valve will be turned off. Shortening or terminating
a bath may prevent the flush valve from activating.
Note 12: On 48040F__ models, the chemical flush is pulsed two times for 10 seconds, with 10 seconds
between pulses. If hot water is required to restore level while the flush valve is open, the flush valve closes
and the flush timer halts until the hot water output turns off.
3.1.8.
How Cooldown Works
Goods must be cool enough to handle immediately after a wash cycle is finished. However, a
drastic temperature change may set wrinkles in goods of certain fabrics. Therefore, many Milnor®
PELLERIN MILNOR CORPORATION
Chapter 3. Operating
washer extractors employ a feature called cooldown to gradually lower the water temperature and
thus provide cool goods at the end of the wash cycle without setting wrinkles.
For F_J, H_J, V_J, and X_J models, the cooldown valve is turned on until high (cooldown) level is
reached. This causes the drain to open and the cooldown valve to close until high level is lost. When
high level is lost, the drain closes and the cooldown valve opens. This process continues until the
cooldown step is complete.

3.2. Viewing and Clearing the Formula Count Accumulator
The microprocessor controller increments a discrete counter for each formula near the end of the
formula. This count is maintained until the counter is cleared. The maximum number of times a
formula can be counted before resetting the accumulator is 999, after which the count will remain at
999 until cleared. The count for each formula can only be viewed and/or cleared while the machine
is in the Run mode but not running a formula (machine is idle).
CAUTION 30 : Avoid Corrupted Accumulator Data—The accumulated data can be
corrupted or become inaccurate if power is lost for an extended period of time, the maximum count
of 999 is reached, or the memory is corrupted by electrical interference.
• Apply power to the machine for at least 15 seconds every 48 hours to retain the formula
count. See “Important Owner/User Information” for more detailed information.
• To help ensure an accurate count, record the value and clear each accumulator before it
reaches 999 counts.
• If the display shows “Accumulator Error,” the count for all formulas must be cleared. See
the document on error messagesSection 4.2. “Error Messages” for more information.

Testing Temperature and Level Sensors
The Test Temperature & Level selection on the Manual menu is used primarily by the Milnor®
factory for testing and calibration of machines before delivery. For testing a temperature or level
sensor in the field, the input to the sensor (level or temperature) must be controlled, but the sensor
must remain connected to the processor board. The temperature sensor can be tested with a
container of ice and water. A probe inserted in a container filled with ice and water will register
approximately 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees Celsius).
Testing the pressure transducer requires a fixture similar to the one illustrated in Figure 8. As the
graduated plastic tube from the transducer is lowered below the surface of the water, the displayed
level values rise. If the values don't change, verify that there is absolutely no leaking in the pressure
tube or at its connection to the transducer.

Explanation
R00088 A:01.7 C:01.0
R00099 A:082F [TEMP]
The top line of the display applies to the level sensing circuit. The
“R” and the five characters immediately following it on the top
line indicate the voltage being delivered by the pressure
transducer on the processor board (see Figure 7). The “A” value is
the actual instantaneous level read by the transducer. Because this
display is only available when the drain is open, the actual level
will normally reflect no water in the machine cylinder, although
the number will be above 0. The “C” value is a calculated average
of the transducer levels, used to negate the effects of rising and
falling water levels caused by the reversing wash motion. Again,
in normal conditions, this value will reflect that there is no water
in the machine, although it may fluctuate between two values
(e.g., 1.0 and 2.0) as it adjusts to the nearest whole inch.
When using the level sensor test fixture (Figure 8), the display
should indicate approximately the level to which the graduated
plastic tubing is inserted into the water.
The bottom line of the display applies to the temperature sensing
circuit. Similar to the “R” value of the top line, the first six
characters of the bottom line indicate the voltage being delivered
by the temperature probe to the processor board (see Figure 7).
The “A” value on the bottom line is the temperature in degrees
Fahrenheit detected by the temperature probe.
Supplement 5
Testing the Pressure Transducer Circuit
The pressure transducer (illustrated in Figure 9) outputs a microvolt-level signal that increases
PELLERIN MILNOR CORPORATION
Chapter 4. Troubleshooting
proportionally according to the pressure in the plastic tube. The instrumentation amplifier
magnifies this signal by a factor of 1000 for the microprocessor. Because only very sensitive
voltmeters are capable of reading a signal of less than one millivolt, better results are available by
measuring the output voltage from the instrumentation amplifier. This procedure is described
below:
CAUTION 32 : Electrocution and Electrical Burn Hazards—Electric box
doors—Operating the machine with any electric box door unlocked can expose high voltage
conductors inside the box.
1. Locate the instrumentation amplifier on the processor board. This is a small integrated circuit
chip with eight leads in socket IC20, near the pressure transducer.
2. Set your digital voltmeter to read a maximum of 5 volts DC. The output of this component,
even when failed, will not exceed 5 VDC.
3. Locate pin 6 on the instrumentation amplifier. Note the notch in one end of the amplifier
chip. If the board is oriented so the notch on the chip is at the left side of the chip, then pin 1
is the leftmost pin on the bottom row. Count pins counterclockwise to pin 6. If the orientation
of the board is maintained (pin 1 at the lower left), then pin 6 will be the second chip from the
right on the top row. This is the amplifier output pin.
4. Put the positive lead from your voltmeter on pin 6 of the amplifier chip, and the negative lead
to a reliable electronic ground. Pin 5 (rightmost pin on top row) of the amplifier chip provides
a suitable ground.
The output voltage read on the meter should be approximately 0.1 volts per inch of water in the
machine cylinder. That is, if the machine is filled to a level of 4 inches (10 cm), the voltage
measured between pins 5 and 6 of a functioning amplifier will be about 0.4 volts.
Note 13: If your voltmeter is capable of reading microvolts, the transducer can be tested without the effect
of the instrumentation amplifier. The notched pin on the transducer is pin 1 (ground). The reference
voltage of slightly less than 1.5 VDC is applied to pin 3. Pins 2, 3, and 4 will all read the reference voltage
relative to pin 1. The output voltage between pins 2 and 4 should equal approximately 0.1 millivolt per
inch of water.
If the voltage is lower than expected, first check for leaks in the plastic tube connected to the
pressure transducer. If no leaks are found, or if the voltage is significantly higher than expected,
replace the processor board.

Error Messages during Normal Operation
If an error message appears on the bottom line of the display while the machine is running, the
timer shown on the top line will stop counting. When the error is corrected, the timer resumes
counting down. To troubleshoot most errors, suspend the formula in progress and turn power off.
Do not terminate the formula if it is to be resumed after the error is corrected. See Section 3.1.5
“How to Shorten, Terminate, or Suspend a Running Formula” for more information.
Display or Action
DOOR NOT CLOSED
Explanation
This error message indicates that the door input is not made while
the machine is running. Verify that the door is closed, then check
the door switch and its connection to the microprocessor. Press
\ if necessary to resume operation after the error is corrected.
Never operate this machine while this message is present.
CHECK LEVEL SWITCH
The level switch may be faulty, perhaps reporting that level 2 was
achieved before level 1. Check the pressure transducer, or the
level switch and its input connection to the microprocessor.
LEVELS STILL MADE
The microprocessor is still receiving information that a level is
made just before or during an extract step, or immediately before
the fill for a bath step. This error is self-clearing when level is lost.
TOO LONG TO FILL
Time to fill to level exceeded 10 minutes. Check the water valves,
strainers, supply lines, and water pressure. The machine will
continue to fill until level is reached, at which time the error will
automatically clear and normal operation will resume.
TOO LONG TO STEAM
TOO LONG TO COOL
TOO LONG TO DRAIN
CHECK PROBE
EXTERNAL FAULT
PELLERIN MILNOR CORPORATION
The configured maximum time to steam up to the desired
temperature has been exceeded. Check the steam valve, strainer,
main steam header and pressure, etc. Steaming will continue until
temperature is achieved, when the error will automatically clear
and normal operation will resume.
The configured maximum time to cool down to the desired
temperature has been exceeded. Check the cooldown valve and
strainer if equipped, cold water pressure, and position of vernier
valve on cooldown inlet. Cooldown will continue until the desired
temperature is achieved, when the error will automatically clear.
The machine did not drain properly in the allotted drain time. This
self-correcting error will clear when the water level in the basket
is low enough to begin the next operation. The drain time before
this message appears is controlled by a configure decision. See
Section 2.3.4 “Configure the Control (Option 2)”.
This error message indicates that the resistance of the temperature
probe is outside the specified range. Test the probe by
disconnecting the probe leads from the processor board and
checking the resistance with an accurate digital ohmmeter.
Resistance between the two leads must be between 2K and 35K
Ohms. Resistance between each lead and ground must be infinite.
On most machines, this error indicates that the programmed
chemical injection failed, usually because the chemical supply
system is empty. When chemicals are added and can be injected,
this error clears automatically, allowing operation to resume.
Chapter 4. Troubleshooting
Display or Action
Explanation
On 48040F7J/F7B models, this error indicates that the bearing air
pressure is below the minimum required to help protect the
bearing from water contamination.
BRAKE PRESS. FAULT
INVERTER FAULT
VIBRATION SW TRIPPED
RECOVERY SEQUENCE
This error appears only on machine models equipped with a
cylinder brake. The message indicates that the brake is engaged
when it should be disengaged. This is usually because the
machine is not receiving sufficient air pressure to open the
normally-closed brake. Check the plant compressed air supply.
This error message appears if the microprocessor does not receive
an input from the inverter within 14 seconds of the beginning of
the formula. After 14 seconds without an inverter input, the timer
stops, the basket is stationary, and the drain valve opens. To
recover, press the Next key (y).
When the vibration switch closes, the timer stops. After 45 to 85
seconds, the basket reverses at wash speed as the cylinder fills
with water. When low level is achieved, the cylinder reverses for
one additional minute at wash speed, then accelerates to extract
speed.

5.1. The E-P Plus® Hardware
The Milnor® E-P Plus® microprocessor control is designed specifically for Milnor®
washer-extractors. Along with certain external electromechanical relay logic and sensing devices,
it controls all machine and system functions. Not every Milnor® microprocessor system includes
all the following components.
5.1.1.
Keyswitches
5.1.1.1.
Run/Program Keyswitch—This keyswitch allows controlling who has the necessary access
to modify wash formulas. Formulas can be modified only when this switch is turned from the Run
position (R) to the Program position (P). To safeguard wash formulas, keep this key in a secure
place with restricted personnel access.
5.1.1.2.
Automatic/Test Keyswitch—This keyswitch allows controlling who has the necessary
access to operate the machine in Test mode for troubleshooting. Test mode can only be accessed
when this switch is turned from the Automatic position (B) to the Test position (H). To reduce the
risk of personal injury and machine damage, keep this key in a secure place with restricted
personnel access.
5.1.2.
Display
The display is a vacuum fluorescent display consisting of two lines of 20 characters each. This type
of display is easily identified by green characters on a black background when operating, or a
nearly black background when not operating.
5.1.3.
Power Supply
The power supply serves to provide a regulated specific voltage to the processor board and certain
auxiliary boards and devices. It converts control circuit alternating current voltage to +12 volts
direct current, –12 volts direct current, and +5 volts direct current. The power supply is switchable
between 120 volts and 240 volts alternating current input voltage.
Although the +12VDC and –12VDC are not adjustable, the +5VDC is rather sensitive and the
power supply must be adjusted so the actual voltage at the processor board is between 5.04VDC
and 5.06VDC as measured by an accurate digital voltmeter. If this voltage is not within the stated
range, the machine is likely to malfunction.
PELLERIN MILNOR CORPORATION
Chapter 5. Supplemental Information
5.1.4.
CPU Processor Board
The central processing unit (CPU) processes data received from the various inputs, stores
information, and responds to each pushbutton entry with the appropriate action. Data is stored in
one or more of the following types of memory chips on the CPU board, depending on the machine
model.
SRAM—Static Random Access Memory stores the accumulator (formula count) data as long as
the machine has power, or via a capacitor for approximately 24 hours with power off. This type
of component is also used to retain the last formula and step in progress when power is turned
off at the machine while a formula is running. SRAM is used in all E-P Plus® and E-P Express®
controllers.
Flash Memory—Similar to EEPROM memory in function, flash memory can be electrically
erased and reprogrammed, but is faster and can retain more data than EEPROM memory. Flash
memory is used on processor boards for F_J, H_J, X_J, and V_J models, as well as all E-P
Express® models. The two flash memory chips reside in sockets IC2 and IC12. The chip in
socket IC12 contains operating instructions and the complete set of industry standard formulas.
As software updates are made available, the owner/operator may choose to replace this chip.
The chip in socket IC2 holds the industry formulas and user changes to those formulas, as well
as machine configuration data. The chip in socket IC2 will not normally need replacing for
software updates.
5.1.5.
Outputs
Depending on the processor board, output relays may be either socket-mounted to a separate output
board, or permanently soldered to the processor board. H_J, F_J, V_J, and X_J models, as well as
all E-P Express® models, use the 188 processor board with soldered relays.
Machines in the H_J, F_J, X_J, and V_J model lines use the 188 processor board with output relays
soldered to the processor board. These relays have the same load parameters as those used in other
models, but are SPST (single pole, single throw) rather than the SPDT (single pole, double throw)
relays used on the 788 board.
WARNING 33 : Avoid damage to electronic boards—Although the relays on 188
processor boards are capable of handling higher loads, failure to restrict current loads to the values
stated above may cause traces on the processor board to fail, thus destroying the board.
5.1.6.
Option Outputs
The 188 E-P Plus® processor board used in F_J, H_J, X_J, and V_J models includes the option
output relays as well as the standard output relays directly on the board. All 22 of the output relays
on the 188 processor board are identical.
5.1.7.
Analog to Digital Convertor
This component converts analog signals, such as from the temperature probe, to a digital signal that
can be used by the microprocessor. The A/D convertor is a part of the 188 processor board. The
A/D convertor also provides a fixed voltage which is used as a reference for sensing temperature.
5.1.8.
Temperature Probe
A thermistor temperature probe is provided in the machine sump if the machine is equipped for
optional temperature control. This probe is a resistor that changes value according to temperature.
PELLERIN MILNOR CORPORATION
Chapter 5. Supplemental Information
5.1.9.
Pressure Sensor
The 188 E-P Plus® processor board contains a pressure transducer unit mounted directly to the
board. This transducer produces a very small voltage (about 0.1 millivolt per inch of water) that
increases as the water level in the basket rises. Refer to “Testing the Level Transducer” in “The E-P
Plus® Manual Menu.”

5.2. Serial Memory Storage Device Applications
A serial memory storage device similar to one shown below can be used to store machine
configuration and formula data for most current models of Milnor® machines. DIP switches inside
the storage device allow you to configure the device to accept data from several different machine
types and software versions. Use this document to determine the proper DIP switch setting for your
machine. After verifying the switch settings, label the storage device with the date, machine name,
and serial number to avoid confusion when the device is needed to restore data to a machine.

5.3. Construction of External Serial Link Cables
This document provides information for on-site fabrication of certain types of serial
communication cables. Programmable data can be transferred between compatible machines or
between a machine and a Milnor serial memory storage device (see Note 15), using the download
cables described in Section 5.3.2.2 and Section 5.3.2.3 respectively. These cable(s) connect to the
PELLERIN MILNOR CORPORATION
Chapter 5. Supplemental Information
cabinet-mounted 9-pin DIN type receptacle shown in Figure 12 and may be installed temporarily or
permanently, as appropriate.
Note 14: The currently approved printers and printer configuration settings are provided in the related
section in document BICWUI01. A pre-assembled machine-to-printer cable similar to the cable described
here, is available from Milnor (P/N 10YMK2PNTR).
Note 15: The Milnor serial memory storage device (also known as a download box) contains nonvolatile
memory to hold a back-up copy of the programming and configuration data for one machine. This data is
transferred between the machine and the memory storage device via the DIN receptacle on the machine. Two
models are currently available: KXMIC00507 and KXMIC00508. The already wired cable and DIN
connector are included as part of the memory storage device. Consult the Milnor Service department to
determine the correct device for a particular application.
5.3.1.
Pin Identification
Figure 12 illustrates the DIN receptacle (which uses male pins) and the mating plug (which uses
female pin sockets), each viewed from the wire entry side. The receptacle is normally installed and
wired at the Milnor factory. The plug and female pin sockets for customer use are provided in a bag
inside the electric box. Table 17 shows the function of each pin.

• Never connect pin 8 to any other pin in the connector, a printer, or another machine.
5.3.2.
How to Wire the Cables
Because the DIN receptacle is wired to support different functions and because the data transferred
across these cables can be corrupted by electrical noise, follow these instructions carefully.
5.3.2.1.
Cable Specifications—Multi-conductor shielded cable that meets the following minimum
requirements must be used in the applications covered herein. Conforming cable may be purchased
from Milnor (P/N 09V300A04S) or purchased from another source:
• Jacket: 600VAC insulation
• Shielding: braided, tinned copper, minimum 85 percent coverage
• Four conductors with these specifications:
» Conductive material: Tinned copper, 20 AWG
» Insulation: 300VAC, color coded
» Preferred colors: red, black, green and white
5.3.2.2.
Connecting Two or More Machines for Machine-to-machine Transfer—Figure
13 shows how to wire a cable to connect a bank of identical machines (the Figure 13 example
shows connections for four machines) so that data programmed on one machine in the group can be
downloaded to all other machines simultaneously. This cable is referred to as a daisy chain because
it runs in segments from machine to machine, connecting all machines in the group.

Cable Wiring
.
The internal connections on each receptacle (machine) between pins 1 and 2, 3 and 4, and 6 and 9
make it easier to wire the cable because it is not necessary to jumper these pins together on the cable.
However, this also means that every plug on the daisy chain must be plugged into a receptacle.
Otherwise, the serial low, serial high, and ground conductors will not have continuity across the
entire daisy chain and some machines will not receive data.
Rules and details about downloading among machines are fully described in the programming
section of the reference manual.
5.3.2.3.
Connecting a Machine to a Serial Memory Storage Device—The cable used with
the serial memory storage device (download box) available from Milnor, see Note 15, is
permanently attached to the storage device. Cable fabrication, as shown in Figure 14, is not
required except for replacing a damaged cable. The memory storage device is the only application
in which the power conductor (Pin 8) is used.
