humidity, vibration and shock.
6. Requirements
The supply disconnecting device (i.e. a switch-disconnect, a disconnect used in combination with switching devices,
or a circuit-breaker) shall fulfill all of the following requirements:
• Isolate the electrical equipment from the supply and have one OFF (isolated) and one ON position only, clearly
marked with “O” and “I” (symbols 60417-2-IEC-5008 and 60417-2-IEC-5007, see 10.2.2), with the actuating
directions in accordance with IEC60447. Circuit-breaker that, in addition, has a reset (tripped) position between
“O” and “I” are also deemed to satisfy this requirement.
• Have a visible gap or a position indicator which cannot indicate OFF (isolated) until all contacts are actually
open and there is an adequate isolating distance between all the contacts in accordance with IEC 60947-3.
• Be provided with a means permitting it to be locked in the OFF (isolated) position (e.g. by padlocks). When
locked, remote as well as local closing shall be prevented.
• Disconnect all live conductors of its power supply circuit. However, for TN supply systems, the neutral
conductor may or may not be disconnected. It is noted that in some countries, disconnection of the neutral
conductor (when used) is compulsory.
• The handle of the supply-disconnecting switch shall be located between 0.6m and 1.7m (2 ft. and 5-1/2 ft)
above the servicing level.
• The disconnecting switch must have over current and overload protecting functions and initialize them as low
as possible under normal running.
• The disconnecting switch should have a breaking capacity sufficient to interrupt the largest normal running
current of loads. The breaking capacity required should be selected according to the table on page 8.

Duct Steam Distribution
1. The dispersion tube should be proper length. Verify correct size from Table 9-1.
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 (1800 FPM) air velocity are not
recommended. Consult factory if air flow is vertical down or air velocity is over 10 m/s (1800 FPM). Do not install in
ducted systems with total back pressure exceeding 150 mm (6”), wc. Airflow should be a minimum of 250 FPM for
installations using dispersion tubing. Consult factory if velocity is below recommended level.
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. Cut 2-3/8” (61mm) dispersion tube installation hole. 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 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. 6-1 or 6-2 for piping detail.
6. If duct static pressure plus piping back pressure is greater than 0.5 in HG (6” WC), please consult the factory. (See
Figure 9-1 for back pressure in pipe run.)

Area Steam Distribution
The EHF-3 fan package (minimum of 2 required for HC-6500 or 3 for the HC-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 120v- 1.28 amps. CFM
rating is 463 @ 1600 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
11-1 and 11-2 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. Also set voltage
source Berg Jumper S3 to proper range. See Fig. 10-1 for location of switches and pages 10 and 11 in tandem with the
applicable wiring diagram below for correct switch settings.

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 Figure11-1 (the overall wiring diagram) for more information. 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. 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 11-1.
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 11-1 (the overall wiring diagram) for more information. Complete installation and wiring instructions are contained
in the duct pressure switch package.
State light will flash green if either high limit or air pressure switches are open.
Modulating High Limit Humidistat/Sensor
A modulating high limit humidistat may be used on applications such as Variable Air Volume (VAV) or in situations where
the duct RH required to maintain the room set point is near saturation. The modulating high limit alleviates the humidifier
from operating in on/off if working near the high limit set point. See Figure 11-1 or Figure 12-2 for wiring.
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 Procedures and 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 1.2 L/min (.31 GPM) (HC-6500/6700 fill rate is 3.735 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, 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 will 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 generation. 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) on the HC-6100 and HC-6300, or 57°C (135°F) on the HC-6500 and HC-6700. The drain cycle
is controlled by the user inputted values 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.

Maintenance
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.
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.
A. Servicing the Unit

Cleaning the Water Level Electrodes
1. If there is water in the steam generating tank, operate the “SETUP”, “MODE” 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).

Removing the Tank
1. Operate the “SETUP” 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 and top 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 and aquastat wires.
5. Loosen and remove 4 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 (269) 273-1415.
Humidifier will not fill with water when power is applied.
1. Make sure the status in Setup menu “Mode” is in “Steam”.
2. If “STATE” LED is red, 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. Make sure that the emergency stop is rotated outwards.
4. Check the voltage to the fill valve. Voltage should be 24-28 VAC (voltage should be taken with wires connected).
If voltage is present, fill valve solenoid coil is probably defective. Coil resistance should be 18W (8.3W for HC6500/6700) 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 25.
6. If no voltage is present to fill valve, check water level. If it is above 2/3 full in level canister, 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 10 ohms (8.3
ohms HC-6500/6700).
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 “Mode” in the Setup menu is “STEAM”. 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 20 for Cleaning Procedure for Electrodes.
10. PC board may be defective. Consult the factory.

21
Humidifier fills with water, but does not show steam output 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 24 VAC if the circuit is open. When the water level closes, circuit
voltage should drop to <5 volts.
(a) If voltage is not 24 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 20 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 call for humidity, the status of
steam generation should be “STEAM GEN.”. If not, PC board or wiring harness is defective.
Unit shows Steam Output 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 41). Look for open circuits or elements with high
resistance.
3. If voltage is not present at elements, check primary voltage fusing.
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 8 ohms 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 at 100% demand.
((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 20 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 jumper and dip switches (S2 & S3, See Fig.
11-1 and 12-1) 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.
(e) Check to see if the aquastat is reading a value lower than the aquastat temp setting.
Designs, materials, weights and performance ratings are approximate and subject to
change without notice. Visit armstronginternational.com for up-to-date information.
23
Humidifier runs continuously, %RH is well under set-point.
1. Verify humidistat/RH sensor is wired correctly and dip switches (S2 & S3, See Fig. 11-1 and 12-1) 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 38 and 41. 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 8W? 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.
4. Make sure high limit/airflow circuit is closed.

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 absorb 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. INIT: FILL TIME - - The low level switch has not closed after 45 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).
2. UNABLE TO FILL - - The low level switch has not closed after 10 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 ABOVE HIGH LONGER - - The high water switch is still closed 5 minutes after the fill valve has turned off upon
hitting the high water level and a 1 minute 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. Invalid H2O SW - - 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. HTR TEMP - - 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. NO LOW COND AFTER DRAIN - - 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.
7. LONGER FILL TO HI - - The high water level switch has not closed 5 minutes after low level switch closed. Check:
debris in fill valve inlet screen, water leaking from tank or inlet tubing, low water pressure, defective high water level
switch (electrodes need to be cleaned).
8. INIT: DRAIN TIME - - The unit has not drained below the low water level probe on initial drain. 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.
9. H2O TEMP ERROR - - Check aquastat connections at main board terminals 17 and 18.
Safety Switches
When the high limit or air proving (pressure) switch opens the state light will flash green and the message “Safety

PID Control
PID control is essential on the HumidiClean™ series for maintaining the desired relative humidity (RH) by adjusting the
humidifiers output. Please note that the PID control is only used when a RH sensor is supplying the demand in place of a
humidistat (configured in Operation Setup Menu). The PID Settings will control how the demand is adjusted according to the
error between the current RH and the desired RH set point. There are four variables of the PID control that can be adjusted to
customize the way your HumidiClean™ reacts to a demand signal.
Proportional Band (PB) – The proportional band value determines how your humidifier will react to the current error (desired
– current). Larger PB values will take longer for your unit to reach its RH set point. Smaller PB values will quickly reach their
RH set points but possibly result in demand instability (demand bounces between on and off). The default PB value on the HumidiClean™ is 15.
Integral Reset Value (IRV) – Values above 30 are not recommended due to instability. The integral reset value determines
how your humidifier will react to the sum of the amount of error in the past. By decreasing the IRV, you will have less
overshoot after you reach your RH set point, but increase the amount of time it takes to reach the set point. Increasing your
IRV will allow you to quickly achieve your RH set point and reach a steady demand, but will have higher RH overshoot in the
process. The default IRV value on the HumidiClean™ is 125.
Derivative Gain (DG) – The derivative gain value determines how much your demand will be affected by the past rate of
change of error on your HumidiClean™. Larger DG values will improve the demand stability and decrease RH overshoot near
the RH set point. However, larger DG values can also amplify any noise in the demand signal between the controller and the
HumidiClean™, giving the unit an unstable demand. The default DG value on the HumidiClean™ is 0.
SI Interval (SI) – The SI interval value controls how much data from the past is used for calculating the integral term and
derivative term. The SI interval value is in seconds, so the default SI integral value of 10 means 10 seconds of past error data
is used when calculating the integral and derivative terms.
Shortcuts to tuning your PID values – If your HumidiClean™:
- is not reaching its desired RH quick enough, decrease the proportional band (PB) value or integral reset value (IRV)
slowly until acceptable rate is reached. Increasing both of these values will help you reach your desired RH value
quicker. Caution, decreasing your PB value too low can create an unstable demand scenario when your demand will
bounce between having a demand and zero, causing your contactor to pull in and out constantly. Avoid this by slowly
decreasing your PB value in increments so the value does not create instability. Increasing your IRV value too high
will result in higher overshoot, causing your %RH to rise above the desired %RH (higher IRV values create higher
overshoot).
- has too high of an overshoot, decrease the integral reset value (IRV) or increase the derivative gain (DG) slowly
until acceptable overshoot is found. Decreasing the IRV will decrease your overshoot, but it will also increase the
time it takes for your humidifier to reach its desired RH. Increasing your DG value will help improve demand stability
(reaching a constant demand value) and decrease set point overshoot, but could amplify any signal noise (if there is
any) coming from your RH sensor. Amplifying signal noise could create an unstable demand and create a false demand
(humidifying when there is no need).
- has an unstable demand (contactor pulling in and out), decrease your proportional band (PB) value or increase your
derivative gain (DG) value. Increasing your PB value will help reach a stable demand, but it will increase the time it
takes to reach the desired RH. Another solution to fixing an unstable demand is to increase the DG value. However, if
you have any noise in your demand signal, increasing the DG value will only make your unit demand act worse. If this
is the case you should decrease the DG value.
