Initial Startup
After the melter has been properly installed, initial startup can take place.
The melter was subjected to extensive testing prior to shipment. In doing so,
the tank was filled with a special test material. Material residue may still be
present in the melter. To remove the residue, melt and feed several
kilograms of material before starting production.
CAUTION: Do not operate Nordson gear pumps without material. Before
switching on the motor, ensure that the tank is filled.
1. Set the main switch to I/ON.
Position I/ON
= Melter switched on.
Position 0/OFF
= Melter switched off.
Padlocks can be used to protect the main switch from being turned on by
unauthorized personnel.
2. Wait until the starting screen appears on the control panel.
NOTE: Do not touch or cover the screen during startup. Wait until it has
completed the function test and the light tower lamp test and the starting
screen appears.

Filling the Tank
Manually
WARNING: Hot! Risk of burns. Wear appropriate protective
clothing/equipment. Tank and tank lid are hot. When filling, hot material may
splash out of the tank. Use caution when filling tank with material.
CAUTION: Do not operate melter with open tank. When the tank is open,
hot material vapors can escape; vapors may contain potentially hazardous
substances.
CAUTION: Before filling the tank, ensure that the tank and material are
clean and free of foreign substances. Foreign substances can hinder
functioning or even cause damage to the melter or accessories.
Fig. 4-13
CAUTION: Cease operation before the tank is completely empty. If there is
too little material in the tank, the material can overheat. Overheated material
can char, collect on surfaces and cause malfunctioning.

Heatup Guided by Reference Channel
NOTE: All activated channels in control mode are included in the heatup
guided by reference channel, including those assigned to an activated
application group.
After every switchon and after standby is exited, the melter returns to
Heatup phase (status display).
Heatup guided by reference channel prevents individual temperature
channels from reaching their setpoint temperature long before the slowest
temperature channel (reservoir/high melt = reference channel). It prevents
hot melt material from charring in hoses/guns and the build-up of material
expansion pressure during heatup. It also helps to save energy.
Temperature
Setpoint Guided channel
Setpoint Reference channel
The actual reservoir temperature serves as the current temperature setpoint
for the guided channels until the reservoir has reached a temperature of
10 °C (18 °F) below its setpoint temperature. Then heatup guided by
reference channel ends automatically. This way all channels reach their
setpoint temperatures more or less at the same time.
10 °C
Time
Fig. 4-16
When the current temperature setpoint of a guided channel (= current value
of reservoir/high melt) reaches the guided channel’s own setpoint minus
2 °C (3.6 °F), it is excluded from heatup guided by reference channel and
then heats to its own setpoint independently (Refer to Fig. 4-17).

Undertemperature Interlock
The undertemperature interlock prevents the melter motors from being
switched on as long as the material is too cold and thus too thick. This could
damage the pumps.
The undertemperature interlock is active during every Heatup phase (status
display) and after every standby. Also refer to section Troubleshooting,
Undertemperature Fault Triggered. If the system ready delay time is
activated, this time must also have expired before the interlock is disabled.
Motor Startup Protection
The motor startup protection prevents the motors from starting up on their
own after heatup or after a fault. The melter goes to startup protection if at
least one motor was running before heatup or before the fault occurred.
Condition for Motor running: All motors ON and Enable motor
When the system is ready again (status display), the motors can be
switched on again via the control panel or the interface Standard I/O.
Acknowledge Startup Protection
On the Control Panel
Press the key Switch on/off all motors (collective enable); startup
protection is acknowledged and all enabled motors run again.

Parameters (Screen 5: Pressure Build-up Feature)
NOTE: To be able to work on the parameter level, the password for level 2
(trained personnel) must first be entered.
Pressure Build-up Feature
This feature allows the material pressure to be regulated to an adjustable
value as soon as the parent machine stops (condition for variation 1) or
when the line speed signal falls below an adjustable value (condition for
variation 2). This allows the melter to maintain a certain pressure even
when there is a break in production.
The pressure sensors A are always responsible for pressure control during
pressure build-up.
Fig. 4-65
M5
NOTE: When pumps are in the process of building up pressure, there is no
pressure alarm monitoring (sensors A and B).
There is no pressure alarm monitoring for pressure sensors C as soon as at
least one pump is building up pressure.
NOTE: The output Motor running on the interface Standard I/O is switched
off as long as the corresponding pump is in the process of building up
pressure.
When pressure build-up has been completed for all pumps for which this
feature has been selected, meaning that the pressure setpoint has been
reached, an indication appears in the status line on the control panel and a
signal is switched via the interface Standard I/O or the field bus.
NOTE: The threshold switch is automatically deactivated as long as
pressure build-up is enabled.

Variation 1: Line stop signal
Enable pressure build-up feature and select condition for which the
pressure build-up is to be started (here: Line stop signal).
The motors are speed-controlled during production. If the signal Line stop is
switched via the interface Standard I/O or the field bus, the motors are
pressure-controlled to the value Setpoint for pressure build-up.
As soon as the signal Line start is switched, the melter returns to
speed-controlled mode.
Fig. 4-66
Switching between Warning/Fault
The operator can choose whether an open safety valve generates a fault
(motors are stopped) or a warning.
Variation 2: Line speed
Enable the pressure build-up feature and select the condition for which the
pressure build-up is to be started (here: Line speed ).
The motors are speed-controlled during production. If the line speed signal
falls below the value Line speed value for activating pressure build-up, the
motors are pressure-controlled to the value Setpoint for pressure build-up.
As soon as the line speed signal exceeds the value plus 5% (15% in the
example), the melter returns to speed-controlled mode.

Motor Circuit Switch (Motor Maintenance Switch)
All motor controllers and motors are deenergized with the motor circuit
switch.
This is important when, in the event of maintenance or repair, the melter
and heaters must remain switched on but the motors absolutely may not
turn.
Padlocks can be used to protect the motor circuit switch from being turned
on by unauthorized personnel.
WARNING: It takes about three minutes for all of the motor controllers to
be deenergized and actually be free of voltage. The LEDs on the motor
controller are then off.
When the motor circuit switch has been turned off, the following text
appears in the status line on the control panel: Motor repair switch open.
NOTE: When maintenance or repair work has been completed, the motor
circuit switch must be turned on again. It can then take up to 10 seconds
before the motor controllers have initialized and indicated so to the control
unit. The display in the status line does not change until this time has
elapsed.

Pneumatic Safety Valve
The safety valves, preset at the factory and lead sealed, prevent higher
pressurization than permitted of the subsequent pneumatic components.
When the factory settings are exceeded, compressed air audibly escapes.
NOTE: The safety valves for the pneumatic options are located in the
melter tower.
Performance Check
ÂÂ
The performance of the safety valve should be checked approx. every six
months. Do this by turning the knurled screw until the compressed air is
audibly released. If the safety valve does not function properly, it should be
cleaned. If it still does not function, it must be replaced.
NOTE: A defective safety valve may be replaced only with an original spare
part. Only the manufacturer may perform repairs to the safety valve!
Fig. 5-20
Cleaning
ÂÂ
Pollution that has penetrated fitting surfaces and conical nipples can be
removed by unscrewing the entire top piece − without changing the
minimum operating pressure. Use a sickle wrench to unscrew.

S The coupling half shells must be tightened such that the gaps are the
same size (Refer to Fig. 7-7).
Extract from manufacturer’s installation and operating instructions:
S The drive shaft and output shaft should be parallel* to one another. If the
axes lean towards one another, excess load is applied to the edges of
the bearings, causing premature wear.
S The coupling may not be twisted axially. Intermediate disk should move
freely.
S The coupling should not be disassembled. Interchanging of coupling
links and disks, damaged sealing rings, polluted bearings, etc. can
cause premature malfunctioning.
S All three coupling disks must be aligned to the dimension** of the shaft
offset. If the intermediate disk is extremely off-center − meaning that the
coupling links are no longer parallel − the coupling may be destroyed
upon startup.
* = axially aligned

General Instructions Regarding Working with Application Materials

Appendix A
General Instructions Regarding Working with
Application Materials
Definition of Terms
Application materials can be e.g. thermoplastic hot melt materials,
adhesives, sealants, liquid adhesives and similar application materials. They
are referred to as materials.
NOTE: The materials that may be processed with your Nordson product
are described in the manual under Intended Use and Unintended Use.
When in doubt, please contact your Nordson representative.
Manufacturer Information
Materials may be processed only when the manufacturer’s product
descriptions and Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are observed.
They provide information, amongst other things, on correct processing of
the product, transport, storage and disposal. Information regarding reactivity
and potentially hazardous decomposition products, toxic properties, flash
points, etc. can also be found there.
Liability
Nordson is not be liable for danger or damage resulting from the materials.
Risk of Burns
There is a risk of burns when handling heated materials. Work carefully and
wear appropriate protective clothing/equipment.

General Instructions Regarding Working with Application Materials
Vapors and Gases
Ensure that vapors and gases do not exceed the prescribed limits. If
necessary, exhaust vapors and gases and/or provide sufficient ventilation of
the work space.
Substrate
The substrate should be free of dust, grease and moisture. The suitable
material, optimum working conditions, and possible pre-treatment of the
substrate must be determined by testing.
Processing Temperature
When materials require heating, adherence to the prescribed processing
temperature is imperative to ensure the quality of the application. It may not
be exceeded! Overheating can cause material coking or cracking, resulting
in malfunctioning or unit failure.
Material should always be melted gently. Extended, unnecessary
temperature load should be avoided. The temperature should be reduced
during breaks in work. The temperature in the tank should be attuned to the
material consumption. Thus it is close to the prescribed processing
temperature for high material consumption and lower for lower
consumption.
When materials are processed cold, take into consideration the shear heat
and the ambient temperature; cool if necessary.

Appendix B
Index Protocols and
Communication Data List
General Information
The field bus interface provides the ability to centrally compile data for
further processing.
Appendix B applies to the PROFIBUS field bus. For better comprehension,
only the pair master/slave is used in the text. The Nordson melter is the
slave, the customer’s control system the master.
The customer’s control system must provide a suitable interface.
Control Modes
The modes Standard and Field bus are available in conjunction with the
option Field bus communication. The mode can be changed only on the
melter control panel.
Standard
S Control access only from control panel and from external control signals
via the interfaces.
S Parameter input only via control panel
S On the master, all parameters can be displayed but not changed. The
master can read actual values.

(contd.)
Field Bus
In Field bus mode, the master controls the melter:
S Control access only from master. Control via the interfaces Standard I/O
and Key-to-line.
S Parameter input only via master
S On the control panel, all parameters can be displayed but not changed.
Data Interface
When data is exchanged between the master and Nordson melters, the
data is accessed via indexes (Data index). All of the communication data is
compiled in the communication data list.
The index process works with small data blocks. This prevents the field bus
from being burdened with unnecessary data.
In the selection of the index protocol, the operator determines how the data
blocks are transmitted.
Transmission and Receive Data Block
NOTE: Communication is always seen from the point of view of the master.
Two data blocks aid in communication. A block transmitted by the master is
the same as a command to the Nordson melter; a received data block is the
same as a reply from the Nordson melter.
The master may not formulate and transmit a new command until after
arrival of the receive data block.

Data Block Processing
The master formulates a job by determining the transmission data block.
The Nordson melter processes the job and formulates the reply (receive
data block).
The master processes the data or repeats the job until a reply is received
from the Nordson melter. Only one job is processed at a time. The Nordson
melter keeps the reply available until the master formulates a new job.
When a job (Command ) can not be executed, the Nordson melter replies
with a fault signal in Status. The master recognizes by this signal whether
the previously transmitted command was correctly processed by the
Nordson melter.
The master must check whether the Acknowledge data (Data index and
Channel number ) from the Nordson melter corresponds to the data in the
transmission data block. If the data are identical, the job is completed. Each
data index can also be retrieved to check values written earlier.
NOTE: Melter control, Melter control1 and Melter control2 and Line speed
value for motor 1−n are processed by the Nordson melter for every
transmission data block, regardless of what was entered by Command.

B-13
Command (contd.)
Communication Monitoring
If the job identification is 0 (zero) and the melter is in Field bus mode, Field
bus communication failure is indicated on the control panel.
Possible faults
S Programming error. The master was programmed incorrectly with
Command=0.
S Field bus cable broken, defective or not connected
S Interruptions in communication, e.g. if the master is not switched on
S Defective or missing bus terminating resistor
S The network was not set up properly
S Sudden resets or crashes, e.g. due to electro-magnetic interference
S With PROFIBUS, also refer to Diagnosis Using Bus Port Plug LEDs in
the appendix Profibus-DP.
NOTE: When a fault occurs, the melter control system stops all motors that
are running.
Data Index
Indexes determined by the master are assigned to the communication data.
The data index is used to address communication data that is to be
transmitted or received (Also refer to Communication Data List ).
If the Acknowledge data index of the receive data block is identical with the
transmitted data index, the job is completed.
Data index set to ”0” (zero) is interpreted as No data index.

VBC_Siemens
P/N 7135049A
B-14 Index Protocols and Communication Data List
Channel Number
The master has to determine a channel number that is valid e.g. for a
temperature channel, pressure channel or motor.
Beginning with the determined channel number as starting channel, the
command to read data for six sequential channels is executed.
The range of channel numbers extends from 0 to 18. Channel number set to
”0” (zero) is interpreted as No channel number.
If the Acknowledge channel number of the receive data block is identical
with the transmitted channel number, the job is completed.
NOTE: Channel number ”0” is used for general melter data, e.g. program
versions.
Write Data Value
In Write data value the master writes the data values for the settings in the
Nordson melter.
NOTE: The communication data is transmitted in Intel format, i. e. the low
byte of a word is placed on the lowest address and the high byte on the
highest address. The master may need to switch bytes, if the formats of the
master and the Nordson melter do not agree.

Read Data Value
In Read data value the master reads the data values received from the
Nordson melter. The Read data values of six sequential channels are
transmitted with every receive data block (Refer to example).

Line Speed Value for Motor 1-n (Key-to-line Mode)
Line speed value for motor 1-n consists of additional values in the
transmission data block. They need not be set by the master. This data is
required only for motors working in key-to-line mode.
The range of values extends from 1.0 to 100.0 %, and the transmission data
must always be multiplied by a factor of 10 for transmission.
Line speed value for motor 1-n set to ”0.0” (zero) is interpreted as No speed
setpoint.
NOTE: Line speed value for motor 1−n is processed by the Nordson melter
for every transmission data block, regardless of what was entered by
Command.
In key-to-line the pump speed is regulated by Line speed value for motor
1−n. Every motor works with its own line speed signal.
The parameters Line speed for min./max. pump speed and

Example of Startup with Standard Index Protocol
For indexes and bit positions, refer to Communication Data List.
1. Set the main switch to I/ON.
NOTE: The control unit needs some time to boot after the melter is
switched on. No data can be exchanged via the field bus during this time.
2. With Profibus: Set the field bus address on the control panel. Other field
buses: Set the address on the gateway.
3. Select control mode Field bus or Dual on the control panel.
4. Set the general melter data as well as limits and setpoints for all of the
motors, temperature channels and pressure sensors.
Example
a. Set Heaters ON (Melter Control, bit 0)
b. Enable motors #1 and #2 (Melter Control, bit 2, bit 3)
c. If the motors are to operate in key-to-line, set Key-to-line mode (for
all motors) (Melter Control, bit 7)
d. Set the temperature setpoint {115} for channel number 4 to 180 °C
e. Set Command to 6 (The master wishes to write data to the Nordson
melter)
f.
Set the line speed signal for motor #1 to 20.4 min-1 and for motor #2
to 32.6 min-1.
