Duct Steam Distribution
1. The dispersion tube should be proper length. Verify correct size from Table 8-1.
2. Install dispersion tube(s) horizontally in duct so holes face upward. Air flow must be vertical up or
horizontal. Do not restrict duct with a height of 200 mm (8”) or less. Installations over 10 m/s
(2000 FPM) air velocity are not recommended. Consult factory if air flow is vertical down or air
velocity is over 10 m/s (2000 FPM). Do not install in ducted systems with static pressure exceeding
150 mm (6”).
3. The dispersion tube(s) should be located upstream of a straight duct run, without obstructions, 3 m
(10 feet) or more in length. Consult the factory if this distance is not available.
4. Use the template provided to cut dispersion tube installation holes. Fasten the mounting plate to
duct with sheet metal screws. If the dispersion tube is 900 mm (35”) or longer, support the far
end with threaded rod or similar means.
5. Note: For steam being generated from a deionized (DI) or reverse osmosis (RO) water source, the
use of 50 mm (2”) insulated stainless steel piping in lieu of copper is required. Pipe used for steam
dispersion piping must be oil and contaminate free. Premature element failure could result if oils or
contaminates are present. Contact the factory with questions. Connect dispersion tube(s) to
HumidiClean tank using 50 mm (2”) nominal insulated copper pipe and hose cuffs provided. We do
not suggest steam distribution piping of field supplied rubber based compounds to be used for any
HumidiClean application. Pitch pipe back to unit 25 mm (1”) per foot. The steam pipe must be free
of kinks and sags to allow for gravity drainage of condensate. Maximum pipe run distance from
tank to dispersion tube is 12 m (40 feet) equivalent piping length. Avoid excessive use of elbows or
45°changes in direction. A "P" trap drain should be installed every 6 m (20 feet), of piping run or at
the bottom of vertical runs that cannot drain back to the tank. See Fig. 8-3 for "P" trap detail.
6. If duct static pressure plus piping back pressure is greater than 0.5 in HG (6" WC), please consult
the factory.

Area Steam Distribution
The EHF-3 fan package (minimum of 2 required for HC-6500/6700) is designed to be hung on a wall
to operate as a remote mounted, direct area discharge option. It incorporates a blower rated at 120v2.90 amps. CFM rating is 465 @ 1530 RPM. The fan package requires a separate 120 volt power supply (optional step down transformer available). Consult Armstrong Installation Bulletin IB-95 for more
information.
Alternative for shortened non-wettable vapor trail
For applications with particularly limited downstream absorption distance, Armstrong HumidiPack or
ExpressPack may be considered. HumidiPack is a prefabricated separator/header and multiple dispersion tube assembly. ExpressPack is a multi-tube steam dispersion panel which is shipped unassembled. The Armstrong HumidiPack or ExpressPack provide uniform distribution and shortened non-wetting vapor trail. Consult Armstrong Installation Bulletin No. 560 or Bulletin 573 for more information.
Control Wiring
When knock-out for sensor wiring is removed, an IP65 compliant cable bushing will be required to
keep the electric cabinet in compliance with IP32.
Wiring for low voltage controls should not be run in same conduit as the power supply. Use of shielded
wire or a separate dedicated metal conduit is required. When shielded cable is used, shield is to be
grounded at the humidifier only. The wire should not be longer than 30 meters (100 ft). If the wire is
out of this limit, please contact Armstrong. Refer to Figures 10-1 and 10-2 for wiring schematics.
Control Humidistat
1. Locate control humidistat where it will sense the average air condition of the space to be
humidified. Avoid areas of restricted circulation or locations where the sensor will be
subjected to drafts, localized heat or moisture sources.
2. Optional duct mounted humidistats are available to sense return or exhaust air, if
preferred.
3. Set DIP switch S-2 on the PC board to the proper range for the humidistat control signal to be
used. See Figure 9-1 . Also set voltage source DIP switch (S1 and S3) to proper range. See
Fig. 9-1 for location of switches and pages 10 and 11 in tandem with the applicable wiring diagram
below for correct switch settings.
4. Wire standard Armstrong 0-10 Vdc humidistat as shown in Figure 10-1. For use of alternative
humidistats or RH sensor, please refer to Figure 10-2.

High Limit Humidistat
Remove the jumper tab from ground and in of high limit/pressure switch connections and wire the high
limit stat between these terminals. Refer to Figure10-1 (the overall wiring diagram) for more inform
ation. A duct mounted high limit humidistat is recommended to prevent over-saturation of the duct air.
Use an on-off controller that opens on fault (high humidity). Humidistat should be set for a maximum
of 90% RH. Alternately, a modulating high limit humidistat may be used on applications such as
variable air volume (VAV). Locate the high limit humidistat approximately 3m (10 feet) downstream of
the dispersion manifold. If 3m (10 feet) is not available, consult the factory. Note: High limit humidistat
will be wired in series with duct pressure switch, if used, see Figure 10-1.
Airflow/Pressure Switch
An airflow switch is recommended to deactivate the humidifier when there is insufficient air flow in a
duct system. A duct pressure switch is preferred as an airflow sensor. The pressure switch should
open on insufficient airflow (opens on fault). Airflow switch should be mounted in supply air duct
upstream of humidifier dispersion. Remove the jumper tab from ground and in of high limit/pressure
switch connections and wire the airflow sensor between these terminals. See Figure 10-1 (the overall
wiring diagram) for more information. Complete installation and wiring instructions are contained in the
duct pressure switch package. Note: Duct pressure switch will be wired in series with high limit
humidistat, if used, see Figure 10-1.
State light will flash green if either high limit or air pressure switches are open.
Alarm Circuit
The terminals 3 & 4 (normally open relay external alarm) are connections for a class II NEC alarm
circuit (switch closure only, 1 amp. maximum @ 24 Vdc or 0.5 amp. @ 125 Vac). The switch will close
if the unit encounters an error or when service life has expired it will not engage if high humidity/sail
switch circuit is open.

Start-Up Procedure (Before “Power On”)
1. Examine the electrical compartment for any loose or disconnected component wiring. Check all
high voltage screw terminal connections at contactor, terminal strip, fuse block & power module for
tightness.
2. Remove Side Panel. Remove tank access panel by unscrewing all black knobs. Make sure all
ionic beds are fastened securely to mounting pins. Position access panel on tank making sure the
gasket is in place and tighten all black knobs. Note: Ionic beds not used on DI/RO units.
3. Check and recheck incoming voltage source and control wiring for proper connections and
tightness of connections.
4. Turn on water supply and check for leaks.
5. Make sure access doors and panels are secure.

Principle of Operation
The HumidiClean humidifier converts ordinary tap water or purified water to steam for distribution to
raise the relative humidity level. The demand for humidity is sensed by a humidistat or sensor which
sends a control signal to the HumidiClean. The HumidiClean is connected to the power supply (208,
220/240, 380/400, 480 or 600 Vac) through a separate circuit breaker supplied by the customer.
When power is initially supplied to the unit from the circuit breaker, the LCD will display "ARMSTRONG HC6000". The "POWER" LED will come on and the unit's fill valve solenoid is energized to
allow water to enter the tank at a rate of 1.5 L/min (.31 GPM)(HC-6500/6700 fill rate is 7.5 L/min (1
GPM)). Note: When unit is turned on the drain valve will energize for 6 sec. or until water level drops
below the high water probe. If water level in tank is above the low water level switch, assuming the air
proving switch is close, the high limit humidity switch is closed and the unit status is ‘STEAM GEN’, the
heating elements will be activated.
The water fill solenoid continues to be activated until the water level in the tank has energized the high
water switch. Note: If fill or drain valves are not energized when power is first applied, check LCD for
diagnostic code. See DIAGNOSTICS section. The heating elements will remain on to preheat the
water inside the tank until the temperature of water has reached the aquastat set point. During this
preheat cycle the amperage draw of the tank can be checked with a clamp on amp meter. The amperage draw on all high voltage wires connected to the main power supply terminal block should correspond to the value on the nameplate. If aquastat has been disabled, the humidifier will go into a 3
minute warm-up once the water hits the low water probe.
After the heat-up time, the HumidiClean will continue to produce steam based on the demand signal,
read from the humidistat or calculated by reading the relative humidity and setpoint. If the demand signal drops below 2% or the high limit/sail switch circuit opens, the contactor(s) will open and the unit
status will be "IDLE". Note: If the humidifier shuts off due to low humidistat demand, a demand signal
of 4% or greater is needed to re-initiate "STEAM GEN." If all the signals are consistent as stated
above, HumidiClean will produce steam continuously and refill the tank with water when the low water
level is reached. These fill intervals will operate based on modulating fill settings in software.
Power to the heating elements is switched on and off by the triacs in the power module to achieve a
modulating output based on the demand signal. The triac utilizes a 1/2 second cycle time. For example, with a 50% humidistat demand signal the triacs would be on for 1/4 second and off for 1/4 second.
If the triacs are fully on, the green "SIGNAL" LED on the power module will be on constantly. When
the triacs start to modulate (switch power to the heating elements on and off) the LED will show the
triac on condition and will appear to flicker or blink.
As HumidiClean continues to produce steam, the unit will accumulate and memorize the heating element active time for the purpose of defining a drain cycle and service life (this memory is not affected
by power outages). When the HumidiClean heating elements have been on for the drain frequency
setting, the unit activates the drain and fill solenoids and begins draining the tank. The tank will drain
with the water being tempered from an activated water fill solenoid. The drainage from the tank will
pass the low water switch, opening the switch and shutting off power to the heating elements. The
drainage from the tank should not exceed 70°C (158°F). The drain cycle is controlled by the user
inputted valves in the operation setup menu. Once the unit has timed out of the drain cycle and all of
the switches are still in position to generate steam, the water fill solenoid switch is activated to fill the
tank and the cycle starts over again.
17
Completing a Service Life Cycle
When 90% of the setting service time has accumulated, the "STATE" LED on the control panel will
blink in yellow. (Refer to EOL settings, for bed life duration settings). If the HumidiClean is not serviced
at this time; the unit will continue to operate for the remaining 10% of the service life setting. When
100% of the bed life setting has been reached, the "STATE" LED will be on in red. The unit will drain
the tank and not respond to a call for demand.
A. Servicing the Unit
1) Save the settings, consult the OPERATION SETUP menu
2) Go to Steam Gen. Menu
a) Drain tank by operating menu from "STEAM GEN." to "MANUAL DRAIN" position.
b) Once the tank is drained, shut power off to unit and allow the tank to cool.
c) Remove the cabinet access panels, and slowly open tank access panel.
3) Ionic Bed Inspection
Remove and inspect one of the ionic beds and inspect the drain screen at the bottom of the
tank. If the bed does not appear to be saturated with mineral deposit (a full bed will
weigh 1.1 kg (2.6 lbs) dry and if the drain screen is clear, you have two options.
a) Reset the Ionic Bed service life Proceed with Step 4.
b) Change the service life settings (see Operation Setup).
4) Ionic Bed Replacement
If the beds are saturated, remove all of them. Remove any large pieces of scale from the tank.
Cleaning the side of the tank is advised at this point.
a) Chemically clean the unit with Rite-Qwik.
i) Pour 3.75L (1 gallon) of Rite-Qwik into tank followed by 3.8 L (1 gallon) of
fresh water. The HC-6500/6700 model requires 7.6 L (2 gallons) of Rite-Qwik
and 7.6 L (2 gallons) of water.
ii) Allow the solution to work until the bubbling action ceases, not to exceed 1
hour.
iii) Clean the water level electrodes, using an emery cloth. See Page 21 for
complete instructions.
iv) Check water level canister for debris.
v) Replace the electrodes.
vi) Ensure drain lines are free of leaks and secure.
vii) Check inlet screen on fill valve and remove any debris.
vii) Fill the tank with water and drain. (Perform this step several times.)
b) Install the new Ionic Beds.
18
5) Restoring the Unit to Operation
a) Turn power on at breaker.
b) Unit should begin to fill. Maximum fill time is approximately 30-45 minutes before
contactor(s) will be closed.
c) If this does not take place, operate the menu, and change the status to "STEAM
GEN."
B. Modifying the Bed Life Setting
1) Complete the steps for servicing the unit as outlined above.
2) Change the EOL settings to desired value in Unit Status menu.
3) Save settings in menu.
End of Season Drain
If at any time during normal operation there is not a demand for a continuous 72 hour period,
HumidiClean drains the tank and the PC Board initiates a drying cycle by cycling the heating elements
for short intervals in order to dry the ionic beds.
Maintenance
The HumidiClean is designed to minimize maintenance. As stated in the PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION
section, after the HumidiClean has accumulated 90% of the selected Service Life, in hours of heater
on time, the "STATE" LED will flash (blink) in yellow. At this time the ionic beds in the tank should be
replaced. If service is not performed, the unit will continue to operate for the remaining hours before
shutting down completely.
Note: Service Life can be adjusted based on water quality. If Ionic Beds are relatively free of scale
deposits or scale is forming on tank walls and elements because beds are saturated with scale, please
consult the factory for Service Life adjustment procedures.
Replacing the Ionic Beds
1) Save the settings, consult the OPERATION SETUP menu
2) Go to Steam Gen. Menu
a) Drain tank by operating menu from "STEAM GEN." to "MANUAL DRAIN" position.
b) Once the tank is drained, shut power off to unit and allow the tank to cool.
c) Remove the cabinet access panels, and slowly open tank access panel.
3) Unsnap ionic beds from support pins and slide them out through the access opening.

4. Inspect tank drain screen and elements inside the tank. The elements should appear to be flaking
off scale. If the drain screen appears to building deposits in the screen holes it should be cleaned.
Remove any scale that appears in the bottom of the tank.
5. Install six (6) new ionic beds (14 for the HC-6500/6700), snapping them into place on the
support pins.
6. Make sure access panel gasket is lapped over all edges of tank access opening. Replace and
secure tank access panel.
7. Make sure both access doors/panels are secure.
8. Turn on power at circuit breaker.
20
9. Operate the unit configuration menu “Ionic Time Reset”, to reset the ionic bed life. All the
accumulated ionic bed time has been reset to zero. The unit should now be heard filling.
NOTE: The accumulated ionic bed time can be reset to zero at anytime. However, the unit
should not be reset without first inspecting the ionic beds.
10. After the unit has heated up and started making steam, turn main power off and double check tank
access panel gasket for steam leakage. Hand tighten wing nuts or reposition gasket if necessary.
Cleaning the Water Level Electrodes
1. If there is water in the steam generating tank, operate menu to "MANUAL DRAIN". The drain valve
should energize, and the unit should completely drain.
2. After the tank has drained, turn off the main
power at the disconnect.
3. Unclamp and remove the 5/8" ID Silicone tubing
from the top outlet of the level canister.
4. Disconnect wires #21 (high level probe), #20
(low level probe) and #19 (common probe) from
the probes, noting the probe and wire locations.
Note: Level control float switches are used
for DI, RO, or very pure water. Cleaning
should not typically be required.
5. Unscrew the probes from the level canister
using the hex nut fitting on the probe
(Note: Level canister bushings may be removed with the probes, if necessary).
6. Use a wire brush, wire wheel, or similar means to clean scale deposits off the stainless steel tip of
the probe. Cleaning of the Teflon insulating jacket (white portion) should not be needed.
7. Wipe probes with a clean dry cloth.
8. Inspect the interior of the level canister. If large amounts of scale or debris are present, remove the
canister from the cabinet by removing the two clamping bracket screws and disconnecting the 5/8"
ID Silicone hose at the bottom of the canister. Flush the canister with water to remove debris
and reinstall.
9. Reinstall the probes and probe wires in their proper locations. The high water probe (shortest)
goes in the right hole of the canister. The low water probe (medium length) goes in the left front
hole of the canister. The common probe (longest) goes in the left, rear hole of the canister.
10. Reconnect the 5/8" ID Silicone hose(s).
21
Removing the Tank, HC-6100/6300 Only
1. Operate menu to "MANUAL DRAIN" and allow unit to complete a deep drain.
(Caution: Tank will still be quite warm).
2. Turn off circuit breaker.
3. Unlock and open front and side doors. Remove left side panel.
4. Disconnect 3 hoses from front of tank; rubber hose cuff at steam outlet; heating element leads at
contactor, fuses, or power module; and thermocouple wires.
5. Loosen and remove 2 mounting bolts at the bottom of tank. Slide tank out left side of cabinet
(be sure tank had time to cool after operation).
Troubleshooting
Notice: This troubleshooting guide is offered to aid in servicing the HC-6000 humidifiers. It is intended
for use by electricians and technical service personnel familiar with electrical and electronic equipment. Many steps in the troubleshooting procedures require measurements of high voltages and
involve working near exposed live parts. KNOW WHERE THE HIGH VOLTAGE PARTS ARE, AND
KEEP HANDS AND METAL TOOLS AWAY FROM THEM. All resistance checks should be made with
main power OFF and the component disconnected from wiring. All continuity checks should be made
with main power OFF. If unsure concerning any of the following procedures, PLEASE consult the
Armstrong Humidification Group at Phone: (269) 273-1415.
Humidifier will not fill with water when power is applied.
1. Make sure the status in menu is "Steam Gen.".
2. Make sure "STATE" LED is red. If so, refer to MAINTENANCE or DIAGNOSTICS section of
this manual.
3. Make sure "POWER" LED is lit. If not, check voltage at secondary side of the main power
transformer. Voltage should be 24-28 VAC. No or low voltage is an indication of a problem with the
supply voltage or transformer. Verify supply voltage and make sure it is the same as voltage rating
on humidifier nameplate. Check secondary power fuses.
4. Check the voltage to the fill valve. Voltage should be 24-28VAC (voltage should be taken with
wires connected). If voltage is present, fill valve solenoid coil is probably defective. Coil resistance
should be 18Ω (8.3Ω for HC-6500/6700) with wires disconnected.
5. Check for water in cabinet bottom or in fill cup overflow line. If present, see "Water in bottom of
cabinet" on page 24.
6. If no voltage is present to fill valve, check water level. If it is above 2/3 full in electrode level
canister (float canister for DI units), the drain valve has to open to drain water below high water
level before the fill valve is energized.
7. Check for 24-28 Vac power to drain valve (voltage should be taken with wires connected). If power
to drain valve is OK, check drain valve coil resistance with wires disconnected. It should be
approximately 10Ω (8.3Ω HC-6500/6700).
22
8. If drain valve and fill valve are both energized and water is below the 1/3 full level in the electrode
canister (float canister for DI units), make sure the status of Steam Generation in menu is "STEAM
GEN.". Perform continuity check to be sure.
9. If drain valve only is energized and water level is below the 2/3 full level in electrode canister (float
canister for DI units), there may be excessive debris in electrode canister (float canister for DI
units). Inspect and clean if needed. See page 21 for Cleaning Procedure for Electrodes.
10. PC board may be defective. Consult the factory.
Humidifier fills with water, but does not turn "STEAM GEN" message on for 3 minutes
after reaching low water level.
1. Perform steps 1 through 3 from above "Humidifier will not fill..."
2. For Tap Water: Check AC voltage across the common electrode (longest) and the low level
electrode (medium length). The voltage will be approximately 17-20 VAC if the circuit is open.
When the water level closes, circuit voltage should drop to <5 volts.
(a) If voltage is not 17-20 VAC with circuit open, check continuity of wires from electrodes to
PC board. If continuity is OK, the PC board is likely defective.
(b) If voltage is 17-20 VAC with circuit open, but does not drop when water contacts the two
electrodes, the water may be too pure (consult factory) or if the voltage drops very slowly to
about 5 volts then the electrodes need cleaning. See page 21 for cleaning procedure for
electrodes.
3. For DI Water: Check continuity across the two wires to the low water float switch. If no continuity,
switch may be defective or "hung up". Make sure movement of switch is vertical so the float arm
swings freely.
4. If high limit/sail circuit is closed, low water level circuit is closed, and there is a calling for humidity,
the status of steam generation should be "STEAM GEN.". If not, PC board or wiring harness is
defective.
"STEAM GEN." turns on after initial fill to low water level, but amperage draw check
shows low or no amperage draw.
1. Check for line voltage to heating elements at secondary side of contactor and/or power module.
Verify power supply is same as voltage rating on humidifier nameplate.
2. If voltage is correct, the heating elements are likely defective. Turn off main power, disconnect all
elements and check element resistances (see resistance chart on Page 36 and 38). Look for open
circuits or elements with high resistance.
3. If voltage is not present at elements, check primary voltage fusing.
23
4. If fuses are OK, check voltage to contactor coil.
(a) If voltage is 24-28VAC at contactor coil, check coil resistance. It should be 8Ω with wires
disconnected. If resistance is OK, check voltage drops across the contactor.
(b) If no voltage to contactor coil, check continuity of wires from PC board to contactor. If
continuity is OK, PC board is likely defective.
5. Check voltage signal to power module. The voltage across TAB8-1 and TAB8-2 (low voltage signal
to power module) should be 12 Vdc.
(a) If no or low voltage, the PC board is likely defective.
(b) If voltage is OK, but green "SIGNAL" LED on the power module is not on, power module is
defective.
6. If green "LOAD" LED on power module is on, check voltage drops across power module.
Humidifier overfills with water on initial fill.
1. Check electrode canister (float canister for DI units) and level electrodes for debris or scale build
up. Clean as needed. See Page 21 for cleaning procedure for electrodes. On DI Units, the high
water float switch may be defective or "hung up". Check continuity across wires to the switch.
Make sure switch movement is vertical so float lever arm swings freely.
2. The fill valve may be stuck open. Turn off power to the humidifier. If fill valve does not close,
clean or replace valve.
3. If the high water circuit is closed and the fill valve shuts off when the power is turned off, the PC
board is defective.
Humidifier runs continuously, %RH is well over set-point.
1. Verify humidistat signal isn't sending false 100% demand.
2. Verify humidistat or RH sensor is wired correctly and stat/sensor dip switches (S2 & S3, See
Fig. 10-1 and 11-1) on the PC board are set correctly for the humidistat signal.
3. If humidifier generates steam with the humidistat disconnected.
(a) Check for power at the contactor coil. If 24-28 VAC, PC board is defective.
(b) Check voltage drop across contactor. If voltage drop is low (it should be line voltage),
remove, disassemble and inspect contactor.
(c) Check green "SIGNAL" LED on power module. If it is ON or blinking, PC board is likely
defective.
(d) Check voltage drop across power module. If voltage drop is low (it should be line voltage),
power module triacs may be failed closed. Shut off main power and perform continuity check
across high voltage input and output terminals. Continuity indicates a shorted triac. Note:
Some power modules have two triacs rather than three. Check schematic on power module
to verify.
24
Humidifier runs continuously, %RH is well under set-point.
1. Verify humidistat/RH sensor is wired correctly and dip switches (S2 & S3, See Fig. 10-1, 11-1
and 11-1) on the PC board are set correctly for the humidistat signal.
2. Check humidistat demand signal at low voltage terminal strip. It should be close or at 100%.
3. If humidifier is a three phase model, verify all three phases of power are present and equal.
4. Check amperage draw on all high voltage power lines with a clamp on amp meter. They should be
same or very close to amperage rating on the humidifier's nameplate if the humidistat demand is
100%.
5. Turn off power. Disconnect heating elements and check resistances - see Tables on Pages 35 and
37. If an open circuit or abnormally high resistance is measured, the heating element(s) is
defective. Also, check to see if heating element leads have shorted to ground.
6. If heating elements are OK, check voltages at secondary side of the power module and contactor.
If no or low voltage, check primary fusing.
7. If fuses are OK, check voltage to contactor coil.
(a) If voltage is 24-28VAC at contactor coil, check coil resistance. It should be approximately
8Ω? with wires disconnected. If resistance is OK, check voltage drops across the contactor.
(b) If no voltage to contactor coil, check continuity of wires from PC board to contactor. If
continuity is OK, PC board is likely defective.
8. Check voltage signal to power module. The voltage across TAB8-1 and TAB8-2 (low voltage signal
to power module) should be 12 Vdc at 100% power.
(a) If no or low voltage, the PC board is likely defective.
(b) If voltage is OK, but green "LOAD" LED on the power module is not on, power module is
defective.
9. If green "SIGNAL" LED on power module is on, check voltage drops across power module.
10. If supply voltage and amperage draws are correct and elements appear OK, unit is probably
undersized (not enough capacity for the application). Check sizing or consult factory.
Humidifier does not drain when manual drain.
1. Disconnect and check resistance of drain valve coil. Resistance should be approximately
10Ω (8.3Ω HC-6500/6700).
2. Make sure drain line is pitched and sized correctly. Check for blockage or obstructions in the drain
line. An air gap or funnel must be used as described in Drain Line Section. - See Figure 8-3.
3. If humidifier does not drain at specified interval or when service is to be performed and drain
valve and piping appear OK, there is blockage of the tank drain screen or the PC board may be
defective.
25
Dispersion tube spits water or water is present in duct
Hint: It is very helpful to cut a small observation window in the duct and cover it with Plexiglas so the
steam discharge from the manifold can be observed. This way the problem can be narrowed down to
piping/steam quality (steps 1 and 2) or a condensation problem (steps 3 and 4).
1. Check distribution piping for proper pitch and size. Make sure there are no loops, dips or sags
where pockets of water can collect. If such conditions exist and are unavoidable, a 'P' trap is
needed to drain the low spots.
2. Make sure any drains are piped correctly and pitched to a floor drain.
3. Check duct downstream of manifold. If any obstructions (coils, elbows, fans) are within 10', the
vapor (condensed steam) discharged from the manifold may be impinging on the obstacle before it
has a chance to adsorb into air. This is especially true if the duct air is cold (<50°F), duct air
velocity is high (>2000 FPM), or duct %RH is high (>90%). If these conditions exist and
impingement is suspected, consult factory.
4. The duct air may be saturated with moisture (100% RH). A high limit humidistat/RH sensor is
recommended to prevent this. See Installation section.
Water in bottom of cabinet
1. Verify that pressure equalizing tubing is hooked up from top of electrode level canister to the tank.
2. Check steam distribution piping for obstructions.
3. Verify duct air velocity is less than 2000 FPM and manifold is not in a vertical down air flow.
4. Check for leaks at fittings and clamps in water supply lines.
5. Verify that tank access panel gasket is on lip of access hole and the access panel is secured
tightly.
6. Make sure the duct pressure and steam distribution back pressure does not total more than
6" WC.
Diagnostics
There are some diagnostic routines programmed into the PC board. If these routines detect a problem
the unit will shut down and display the error message on LCD, the "STATE" LED will be on in red.
1 FILL TIME OUT TO LOW LEVEL - - The low level switch has not closed after 35 minutes of fill
valve on time. This is only on initial start-up or after a complete drain down. Check: defective fill
valve, debris in fill valve inlet screen or on tank drain screen, water leakage from tank or inlet tubing,
no water flow or low water pressure, drain valve stuck open or leaking, defective low water level switch
(electrodes need to be cleaned).
26
2 WATER LEVEL DROPPED BELOW LOW LEVEL - - The low level switch has not closed after 5
minutes of fill valve on time. This is only after initial start-up fill and boil-down sequence.
Check: debris in water switch canister, defective fill valve, no water flow or low water pressure, drain
valve stuck open, defective low water level switch (electrodes need to be cleaned).
3 WATER LEVEL ABOVE HIGH LEVEL TIME OUT - - The high water switch is still closed 5 minutes
after the fill valve has turned off upon hitting the high water level and a 30 second drain does not drop
the water below the high water level. Check: defective high water level switch, debris in level canister,
fill valve stuck open, drain valve is defective or scale buildup in drain line.
4 ILLEGAL LEVEL SWITCH STATE - - The high level switch is closed and the low level switch is
open. Check: defective level switch(es), debris in electrode level canister, scale on electrodes or canister, improper wiring of electrodes or float switches.
5 OVER TEMPERATURE - - Internal temperature exceeds safe level. Check: low water in tank,
scale buildup on Thermocouple heating element surface, defective Thermocouple. See Clearing
"Error" Codes section.
6 WATER LEVEL HAS NOT DROPPED BELOW LOW LEVEL - - The low water level switch has not
opened after a complete drain. Unit drains frequency and duration can be set in menu. Check: defective low water level switch or electrodes, defective drain valve, debris on low water level float switch or
electrodes, tank drain screen, or in drain valve
Clearing "ERROR" codes
After correcting the problem, the error state must be cleared by depressing the button "Error Clearing".
Confirm the operation, the unit should resume normal operation (If the water level is above the low
water, the unit will drain below the low water level and refill before energizing the contactor). Turning
the power on and off will not clear the error condition.
Safety Switches
When the high limit or air proving (pressure) switch opens the state light will flash green and the
message “High Humidity/Sail Switch Circuit is Open” will be shown on the front display. This is a soft
error, it does not have to be reset. When the circuit closes the unit will go back to normal operation.

Introduction to Communications
HC6000 series provides two types of remote communication port: RS-485 and RS-232.
1) Run Modbus-RTU on RS-485 port
2) Run PSP on RS-232 port( the protocol was provided for ProtoCessor Module only, users
can select different modules to connect different port)
Please see instruction details for Modbus_RTU used in HC6000:
When you want to use modules, please change the configuration from communication to "PSP" per
menu (See section 3.2.3 communication setup).
When you need to use Modbus-485 in control board, please change the configuration from communication to "Modbus" per menu (See section 3.2.3 communication setup).
Modbus_RTU in HC6000, abiding by the order No. 02, 04 and 06 in Modbus, can read data in 10000
and 30000(address), and write data in 40000.
By using Modbus_RTU in HC6000, users can get PSP server end program and Modbus program. Part
of the PSP program will be written according to "ProtoCessor Simple Protocol (PSP) Specification"
provided by Protocessor. PSP Configuration from the Protocol module is as follows:
