2. GENERAL WARNING
WARNING: The Universal-R should always be installed by a suitabley qualified person, in accordance with best
electrical and refrigeration practice. Take time to read the instructions. Do not exceed the relay ratings. The
Universal-R should not be considered a safety device, use suitable safety cutout devices when appropriate.
•
•
•
This manual is part of the product and should be kept near the instrument for easy and quick reference.
The instrument shall not be used for purposes different from those described hereunder. It cannot be used as a
safety device.
Check the application limits before proceeding.
2.1 SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Check the supply voltage is correct before connecting the instrument.
Do not expose to water or moisture: use the controller only within the operating limits avoiding sudden temperature
changes with high atmospheric humidity to prevent formation of condensation
Warning : Disconnect all electrical connections before any kind of maintenance.
The instrument must not be opened.
Fit the probe where it is not accessible by the End User.
In case of failure or faulty operation send the instrument back to the distributor with a detailed description of the
fault.
Do not exceed the maximum current that can be applied to each relay (see Technical Data).
Ensure that the wires for probes, electrical loads and the power supply are separated and far enough from each
other, without crossing or intertwining.
In case of applications in industrial environments, the use of mains filters (our mod. DIXL930) in parallel with
inductive loads could be useful.
Heating applications – Do not exceed 105c with the NTC probes supplied. For higher temperatures (up to a
maximum of 150c) use special PTC probes - our Part No. DIXL957.
3. GENERAL DESCRIPTION
Model Universal-R is a 32x74 mm format microprocessor based controller suitable for applications on high, medium or
low temperature refrigeration units. It is provided with three relay outputs to control compressor, defrost - which can be
either electrical or hot gas - and evaporator fans. It can work with PTC or NTC probes. Where defrost is being
terminated by time, it can operate with just one thermostat probe or where defrost is being terminated by temperature, it
has an input for a second (evaporator) probe.
The Universal-R is equipped with an internal alarm buzzer, a flashing visual alarm as well as a 4th relay ( volt free ) that
can be configured as Auxiliary, Alarm or to control a heater in Dead Band control (see parameter oAc)
Each instrument is fully configurable through special parameters that can be easily programmed through the keypad.

QUICK START UP PROCEDURE – Up and running in 6 easy steps
This Quick Start Up section is designed to get you up and running with the minimum of fuss. Just follow these 6 simple
steps.
STEP 1 - Using the table below, decide which type of controller you wish the Universal-R to
function as and take note of the required setting for parameter “tC”
Also take note of the number of probes to be connected.

Note: “tC” settings 3, 4 & 5, default to Electrical Defrost. Hot Gas is possible by setting parameter “tdF” for gas defrost.
Settings 1,2,3 & 6 do not require the 2nd probe to be fitted
Ð
STEP 2 - Install the new Universal-R and connect up the wiring and probe(s).
If in doubt, refer to Section on typical wiring connections
Ð
STEP 3 - Turn on the power supply to the controller
For 1 minute, you now have direct access (without pass code) to parameter “tC” and to start the automatic probe type
recognition, after which these parameter settings will have to be done manually and the pass code will have to be
entered.
Ð
STEP 4 - Within 1 minute from the power on, press the n button for 3 seconds, the
controller will automatically recognise if the probes connected to it are PTC or NTC. During
recognition time the controller will display: tPd (type of probe detection) followed by the
kind of probe “ntc” or “Ptc” flashing for few seconds.
Notes: Probe temperature must be between –50c & + 60c for automatic probe recognition to work correctly
When using 2 x probes, both must be the same type, you cannot mix them.
Ð
STEP 5 – Within 1 minute from the power on, press the “SET + n ” buttons for 3 seconds
and the label “Pr2” will be shown, release the buttons and parameter “tC” will be
displayed, then press the “SET” button again to see the current setting and adjust using the
o & n buttons to the setting you require for your particular application.
Allow display to return to normal
Ð
STEP 6 - Press the “SET” button for 3 seconds until the small LED’s at the top of the
display start to flash and the Set Point value is displayed, then adjust the “Set Point” using
the o & n buttons.
IMPORTANT: Finally turn off the power then turn back on again
Ð
We recommend you you check the parameter default settings listed in these instructions to ensure they suit your
particular application. If you need to make further parameter adjustments or you require more information, read the
following sections

6. PARAMETER TABLE and factory default settings
IMPORTANT : Always set parameter “tC” first. As you move “tC” between settings 1 to 5, all non- relevant parameters
will become masked out. Once “tC” has been set correctly, you can then alter any other parameter if you need to.
WARNING!!
Always switch the power OFF then ON at the end of programming to initiate changes.
If parameter “tC” is set to 4 or 5 without an evaporator probe fitted, a P2 probe alarm will be generated. If you
do intend to use settings 4 or 5 fit a probe, if you intend to use settings 1, 2 or 3, you must switch the power
OFF then ON again to clear the alarm.

7. SERVICE REPLACEMENT - MODELS AND PROBE INFORMATION
The Dixell Universal-R can directly replace all the following controllers for their most typical applications as well as many
others not listed. It is compatible with the existing PTC or NTC sensors from most other leading brands. If the existing
sensors are incompatible or possibly faulty, they can be replaced by the two new NTC sensors which come supplied
with the Universal-R. (When ever practical, replacement of the sensors is always recommended as good practise. )

8. PARAMETERS – THEIR FUNCTIONS IN DETAIL
tC Type of Controller : Tells the Universal-R which type of controller it will be operating as.
1 = On / Off refrigeration thermostat – 1 relay &1 probe
2 = Combined thermostat with off cycle defrost timer – 1 relay & 1 probe
3 = Combined thermostat with time initiated & time terminated defrost – 2 relays & 1 probe
4 = Combined thermostat with time initiated & temperature terminated defrost – 2 relays & 2 probes
5 = Combined thermostat with time initiated, temperature terminated defrost + evaporator fan control with delay
after defrost – 3 relays & 2 probes
6 = On / Off heating thermostat – 1 relay &1 probe
PbC Probe Type: Configures the controller to work with PTC or NTC probes. 0 = PTC, 1 = NTC
Hy Differential: ( 0,2°C ÷ 12,0°C ) - Sets the degrees above Set Point at which the compressor cuts in.
Note: with tc=6 (heating applications) the Hy value is automatically set below the Set Point. If the temperature
decreases and reaches set point minus differential the regulation output is activated and then turned off when the
temperature reaches the set point value again.
LS Minimum set point limit: ( -50°C ÷ SET ) - Sets the lower limit of set point adjustment.
US Maximum set point limit: ( SET °÷ 150°C ) - Sets the upper limit of set point adjustment
Ac Anti-short cycle delay: (0 ÷ 30 min) minimum interval between the compressor stop and the next possible restart.
ALc Temperature alarm configuration:
0 = Related to Set Point
1 = Absolute
Note : Related means alarms are linked to the Set Point and will follow it if it is adjusted. In this case ALU & ALL
set degrees over & under Set Point for alarm. Absolute means ALU & ALL will set fixed alarm temperatures, which
are not effected by any Set Point adjustment.
ALU High temperature alarm: ALC = 0 from 0 ÷ 50°C; ALC = 1 from ALL ÷ 150°C
ALL Low temperature alarm: ALC = 0 from 0 ÷ 50°C; ALC = 1 from -50°C ÷ ALU
ALd Temperature alarm delay: (0 ÷ 250min) time interval between an alarm condition occurring and the alarm
signalling.
dAO Delay of temperature alarm at start-up: (from 0 ÷ 720 min; res. 10min) time delay of any temperature alarm
during pull down following “power on”.
OdS Outputs activation delay at start up: (0 ÷ 250min) Time delay before any output relay activates following “power
on”.
CCt Thermostat override: (0 ÷ 990min; res. 10 min) Period during which the compressor will run continuously,
irrespective of temperature. Setting this parameter to 0 prohibits this function.
dAF Defrost delay after fast freezing: ( 0 ÷ 250 min ) time interval between the end of the thermostat override period
and the start of the following defrost related to it.
IdF Interval between defrosts: ( 1 ÷ 250 hours ) Time interval between the beginning of two consecutive defrosts.
dSd Delay start of defrost :( 0 ÷ 59min ) Delay between reaching the defrost interval time ( as defined by parameter
IdF ) and the defrost actually starting. Used to stagger defrosts between multiple systems.
MdF (Maximum) duration of defrost:( 0 ÷ 250 min ) Time duration of defrost when only one probe is in use, or defrost
time out override when second ( evaporator ) probe is in use. Set it to zero to disable defrost cycles.
dtE Defrost termination temperature: (-50 ÷150°C ) Sets the defrost termination temperature. Measured by the
evaporator probe.
dFd Display during defrost: 0 = real temperature; 1 = temperature at defrost start; 2 = set point; 3 = “dEF” label; 4 =
“dEG” label
dAd Defrost display time out: (0 ÷ 250 min). After a defrost, the controller will revert to current temperature display
when the temperature is back down within it’s normal working range, or after the time set in this parameter, which
ever is the sooner.
tdF Defrost type: 0 = electrical heater 1 = hot gas. If set for hot gas, compressor runs during defrost.
Fdt Drain down time: ( 0 ÷ 60min ) Drain down time. Runs concurrently with Fdt (Fan delay time )
dPo First defrost after power-on: (0 = Immediately; 1 = after the IdF interval time)

4 = fan relay is used as 2nd compressor output
FSt Fan stop temperature: (-50÷150°C) Temperature above which the evaporator fan stops ( during the normal
refrigeration cycle )
Fnd Fan delay after defrost: (0 ÷ 250 min) The time interval between end of defrost and evaporator fans starting.

13. DEFROST TYPES
Parameter “tC” = 1 or 6
Parameter “tC” = 2
Parameter “tC” = 3, 4 or 5
No defrost
Off cycle defrost by timer
Forced defrost, Electrical or Hot Gas
Parameter “tdF” = 0 defrost is electrical – “tdF” = 1 defrost is by hot gas
14. EVAPORATOR FAN CONTROL ( only when parameter “tC” = 5 )
The fan control mode is selected by means of the “FnC” parameter:
FnC=0 fans will cycle ON and OFF with the compressor and be off during defrost:;
FnC=1 fans will run continuously, but be off during defrost
FnC=2 fans will switch ON and OFF with the compressor and be on during defrost *
FnC=3 fans will run continuously and be on during defrost *
* Note : Fans will stop if the temperature in parameter FSt is exceeded.
Parameter “FSt” sets the fan stop temperature. This is the maximum temperature, detected by the evaporator probe,
above which the evaporator fans will stop.
Leave “FSt” above ambient during commissioning to avoid fan short cycle.
After defrost, there is a stand still drain time, set by parameter “Fdt” When this period has expired, the refrigeration
cycle commence but the evaporator fans remain off until “Fnd” ( fan delay ) times out.

15. SPECIAL APPLICATIONS – TWIN COMPRESSOR – DEAD BAND CONTROL
16.1 TWIN COMPRESSOR
If the evaporator fan relay is not being used, the Universal-R can control a second compressor with this relay, using
parameter “FnC”. Parameter “Fnd” ( normally used for fan delay ) now becomes the delay between the starting of
compressor 1 and 2. Both compressors will stop simultaneously
FnC = 4 The evaporator fan relay is used to control the second compressor
Fnd = 0 to 250 (minutes) Time delay between the start of the 1st and 2nd compressors.
16.2 DEAD BAND CONTROL (cooling & heating)
With oAc = 1, the compressor relay controls cooling as normal but the 4th (auxiliary) relay is used to control a heater.
The value entered in parameter HY will now be set equal on both sides of the SET POINT. Example: if HY = 1°c that will
create a 2°c Dead Band
At SET POINT + HY, cooling switches on. At SET POINT – HY, heating switches on. Either cooling or heating switch off
when temperature returns to SET POINT

16.1 MUTING ALARM BUZZER & RELAY
The alarm buzzer can be muted, by pressing any button. The controller will briefly show the reset “rES” label. Parameter
tbA defines how the alarm relay will respond to the muting of the buzzer.
tbA = 0
The alarm relay will remain active until the alarm condition is rectified
tbA = 1
The alarm relay de-activates when the buzzer is muted
In either case, the display will flash an alarm label until the condition is rectified
16.2 ALARM “EE”
The Dixell Universal-R is provided with an internal watchdog verifying data and memory integrity. Alarm “EE” flashes
when a failure in data or in the internal memory is detected. In such case the alarm output is enabled.
WHAT TO DO
1. Cancel the alarm by pressing a key.
2. Check the value of all parameters and restore correct values when wrong.
3. Check the correct instrument operation and in case of further errors replace it.
16.3 ALARM RECOVERY
Probe alarms “P1” and “P2” start 30 seconds after a fault in probe is detected; they automatically stop 30 seconds after
the probe restarts normal operation. Check connections before replacing the probe.
Temperature alarms “HA” and “LA” automatically stop as soon as the thermostat temperature returns to normal values
and when defrost starts.

18. MOUNTING
The Universal-R should be mounted in a panel, in a 29 x 71 mm hole, and fixed using the special brackets supplied.
Ambient temperature for correct operation is 0 - 60 °C. Avoid places subject to strong vibrations, corrosive gases,
excessive dirt or humidity, 20 – 85% non condensing. Make sure air can freely circulate through the cooling holes slots
at the back of the controller.
19. ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
The instrument is provided with screw terminal block to connect cables with a cross section up to 2,5 mm2. Before
connecting cables make sure the power supply complies with the instrument’s requirements. Separate the probe cables
from the power supply cables, from the outputs and the power connections. Do not exceed the maximum current rating
for each relay, in case of heavier loads use a suitable external relay.
20. PROBES
It is recommended to place the thermostat probe away from rapid air streams to correctly measure the average room
temperature. Place the defrost termination probe among the evaporator fins in the coldest place, where most ice is
formed, far from heaters or from the warmest place during defrost, to prevent premature defrost termination.
