1. Product Information
1.1 Function
Use
The EXHAUSTO EBC 12 is a Modulating Fan Control used with single appliances to monitor and maintain a constant draft or pressure in a chimney or duct. This is achieved by modulating the speed of a chimney fan or ventilator. The EBC 12 can be used with EXHAUSTO Models RSV, BESF and BESB. It can control the fan speed directly or via a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD).
The EBC 12 is typically used to control the draft in systems requiring a single boiler or water heater.
Function
The control monitors the draft in a chimney system via connection to a pressure sensor (XTP2) attached to the chimney, and maintains it by modulating the fan speed. The control has an integrated safety system that assures the heating appliance is shut down in case of fan failure or control failure.
The use of the EBC 12 is not restricted to any type of fuel or type of heating appliance. When the appliance thermostat closes and calls for heat, the control will send maximum voltage to the chimney fan or VFD. When the necessary draft is achieved, the control will allow boiler firing and regulate the voltage to the fan or VFD, so the required draft is maintained (the value can be viewed in the display). In case of insufficient draft, the control will assure the burner will be shut down after 12 seconds. When the appliance has satisfied the thermostat and shuts down, the control will turn off the fan.
The control can be used in one of two ways:
• Interlocked with the appliance to pre-purge the chimney prior to boiler start-up and post-purge the chimney for 3 minutes after boiler shut down.
or
• Set to run the fan continuously.
Other Functions
The control has an integrated safety function. It can be operated with either a manual reset function (reset button) or an automatic reset function. All terminal connections are monitored by LED’s for easy service and troubleshooting.

3. Mechanical Installation
3.1 Location
The control and the transducer must be installed inside, preferably in the boiler room. The control does not need to be installed in an enclosure. Fig. 2 shows how the components are connected.
The transducer cannot be mounted inside an airtight enclosure. It uses the boiler room
pressure/atmospheric pressure as reference pressure.

3.2 Mounting of Control
The control can be mounted directly on a wall or similar. Remove the clear cover. The mounting holes are located under the plastic screws that hold the cover in place (Fig. 3).
The distance between the control and the transducer should not exceed three hundred (300) feet.

VENTING DESIGN SOLUTIONS
3001435 05.12
3.3 Mounting of Transducer
Attention must be paid to the location of the transducer. The transducer can be mounted in any orientation but prefer
ably with the pressure ports facing down.
The transducer should be mounted within six (6) feet of the stack probe.
Fig. 4
3.4 Mounting of Stack Probe
The probe (Fig. 2a on page 5) is inserted into the chimney or vent at the point where the draft should be kept constant.
This could be at the appliance outlet, in the vent or similar.
Referring to Fig. 2, make sure the tip of the tube is flush with the inner wall of the stack. Inserting it too far may affect the reading and thereby the operation.
3.5 Connecting Transducer to Stack Probe
The transducer is connected to the stack probe via a silicone tube. Make sure that the tube is connected to the proper transducer port as shown in Fig. 5.

4. Electrical Installation
4.1 General
Danger: Turn off electrical power before servicing. Contact with live electric components can
cause shock or death.
EBC 12 is designed for 1x120VAC power supply only. Fan output is regulating on the neutral side and cannot be connected to other circuits.
The control can be used in two ways:
• Connected so the fan runs continuously independent of appliance operation (see paragraph 4.2).
• Interlocked with an appliance so the appliance operation indirectly controls the fan operation (see paragraph 4.3).
In both cases the control will still monitor and maintain a constant draft.
There are two types of safety systems available:
• Integrated Proven Draft Switch (standard).
• Integrated Proven Draft Switch with External Proven Draft Switch (accessory) backup (see paragraph 4.4).
The terminals are connected as shown on Fig. 6:

5.1 General
Prior to start up please review the paragraph below titled Dipswitch settings.
Dipswitch settings
Prior to starting the system, check to see if the dipswitch settings are as required:
• Default factory setting: All OFF
• If the factory setting must be changed, the black cover plate must be removed to gain access to the dipswitches (see Fig 12-A):
1. Remove the potentiometer dial.
2. Remove the (4) flathead screws and lift the top plate off the board.
3. Change the dipswitch settings.

5.2 Setting Operating Pressure
The pressure setting of the EBC 12 must be adjusted to assure proper draft for the heating system. The display (Fig. 13-C) has two functions. It can show what the draft set-point is, and it can show what the actual draft is.
The default mode shows the actual draft. To change the mode, the set-point button must be pressed continuously.
To adjust the draft set-point follow this procedure:
Temporary adjustment of the draft:
1. Press the set-point button continuously with a pen or screwdriver (Fig. 13-A). The pressure setting will now show on the display. Use the potentiometer (Fig. 13-B) to set the required draft in WC/Pa on the display (Fig. 13-C). Release the set-point button; the actual draft will now show up on the display. 2. Start the heating system and wait until the thermostat (Fig. 14-A) closes and the draft has stabilized (none of the yellow diodes are lit).
Final adjustment of the draft:
3. Check the draft at the appliance outlets and make any necessary adjustment by following the procedure described under step 1 above.
4. Check that the safety system disconnects the appliance (Fig. 14-B). An error can be simulated by disconnecting the tube (-) to the transducer (XTP).
5. Check the start function after the final draft setting adjustments have been made.

Observation
Problem
Solution
No light in the SUPPLY diode (Fig 15-A)
Blown fuse or interrupted power supply
1) Check the fuse (Fig. 15-B) and the fan power.
Constant light in “Increasing Speed” diode (Fig 15-E)
System fault
2) Check the power supply.
1) Check that the probe is connected to the “-” port on the
XTP2 transducer.
2) Check that the probe is not clogged.
CAUTION: Do not blow into the XTP2 transducer.
3) Check that the fan is running.
4) Set-point is too high for the fan capacity. Check/reduce
setting.
5) Check the entire system’s adjustment, including any
balancing baffles installed.
6) Check breaching and common vent for leakages.
7) Check the power supply to the XTP2.
Constant light in “Decreasing Speed” diode System fault
(Fig 15-D)
1) The natural chimney draft prevents the system from
reaching the set-point. Check the adjustment. If necessary,
install a balancing baffle or other resistance in the chimney.
2) The probe may be in a bad location. Move it to another
position closer to the appliance.

1) Press the RESET button (Fig. 15-C) — see warning.
2) Check that the service disconnect switch is working
properly.
3) Check the connectors, chimney and fan for blocking
restrictions.

Error in safety system (PDS)
The EBC 12 does not regulate and the fan is
running at full speed
The neutral connection is shared with other
devices.
1) Check that a PDS is installed.
2) Check the setting of the safety system (the natural draft
can prevent close/alternatively the PDS CHECK dipswitch can
be moved to its OFF position.
3) Check the connection to the PDS and the PDS itself.
1) Check the amp-draw on terminal Nreg. If it is “0”, the
neutral connection to the fan is being shared.
Some appliances require a certain startup procedure after a shutdown. Follow this procedure prior
to pressing the RESET button (Fig. 15-C).
