ECS 4M
DESCRIPTION CONTINUED...
The second stage provides control over a second variable
speed fan. The second stage is also fully programmable for
settings such as minimum speed, relative set point etc.
The third stage controls either a third single fan or a drip cool
unit with programmable duty cycle and adjustable timer
setting.
The fourth stage controls either a heater for colder climates,
or a fourth single speed fan where even cooling is required.
The ECS 4M provides you with full control over all four
stages via the use of an easy to follow display panel. All
programmable features can be customized to meet your
requirements. The ECS 4M keeps you constantly informed
by displaying the status of all of its outputs as well as the
ambient temperature. With an optional humidity probe, the
ECS 4M displays current humidity levels.
Safety of livestock is ensured by the continuous control of
climate and timely alarm notification should environmental
conditions exceed alarm set points. Further security may be
obtained by connecting all ECS series controls in a network
configuration to a computer via the use of an optional RCM
40 remote monitoring unit. This provides remote control
monitoring of each room. All ECS variable outputs are fused,
and all programmable settings are maintained whether or
not the ECS 4M is powered.
The ECS 4M provides an automatic constant temperature
reduction (ramping) feature for your maturing livestock. A
built in low temperature safety factor prevents temperatures
reaching dangerous limits.
With ECS 4M in control of your climate, you are assured of
optimal living conditions for your livestock.

VARIFAN RECOMMENDED CONTROL
BACKUP
WARNING AND PRECAUTIONS
Equipment failure, blown fuses and/or tripped breakers
may prove harmful to the content of the building. It is
therefore strongly recommended to install backup devices
and alarm or warning devices (see example fig. 7).
BACKUP THERMOSTAT. If the Varifan control fails, then
the thermostat will start the dedicated fan at full speed
when the temperature will reach the T15-WD set value.
Therefore, the T15-WD should be accessible for its
adjustment and it should be set at the same temperature
as the alarm, i.e. approximately 5ºF above the fan relative
set point.
BACKUP POWER SOURCE. The DPDT relay connects
to the source 1 in normal operation but will switch to the
source 2 if source 1 is off. The relay shall be chosen to
support the load connect to it.
ALARM CIRCUIT. In normal operation, the alarm circuit of
the Varifan Control is a short circuit. But if the Varifan
control is defective or if there is no power applied to it,
then the alarm circuit of the control will be an open circuit.

NOTE: When ramping is activated or enabled, the main
set point temperature cannot be manually adjusted.
Ramping automatically turns OFF when the minimum
temperature limit is reached!
Example: The main set point temperature is set to 70°F
and ramping is adjusted to -0.05°F. The following day the
main set point temperature drops to 69.95°F followed by
69.90°F on the next day. Although the main set point real
value decreases, the display will be changed after 10
days. The main set point will then be 69.5°F.

SECONDARY FUNCTIONS
RELATIVE HUMIDITY SET POINT
RH
If the ECS is equipped with an optional
humidity probe, this setting regulates the
humidity level of the room. The humidity setting
affects the operation of Fan 1 only. When the
humidity level of the room exceeds the relative
humidity setting, Fan 1 runs at new minimum
speed. The speed that Fan 1 operates at, is
governed by the ambient humidity of the room.
This turn may cause the fan to increase to a
speed 30% higher than the Fan 1 minimum
speed set by primary function (2). The fan
operates at this increased speed for as long as
the ambient room temperature is below the
main set point. When the temperature of the
room is greater than the main set point
temperature the fan speed increases until the
maximum speed
as been reached. The
humidity level is adjustable in 1% increments
from a minimum setting of 30% to a maximum
setting of 80%.
Adjusting the relative humidity level:
• rotate the Selector dial to position (12),
• rapidly rotate the Adjustor dial back and
forth to enter secondary function mode,
• rotate the Selector dial to position (1),
• rotate the Adjustor dial counterclockwise to
decrease the humidity setting, clockwise to
increase it.
The humidity setting is displayed on the ECS.

DRIP COOL DUTY CYCLE
Timer
As long as the actual temperature is below the
main set point, the Drip Cool unit will not
operate. When the ambient temperature rises
above the stage 3 relative set point configured
by primary function (6), the drip cool units
begins to operate in a duty cycle mode. The
duty cycle sets the percentage of time the Drip
Cool unit is ON versus the percentage of time
the unit is OFF. The ON time is entered as a
percentage of a 12 minutes period. If a fan is
used, set this value at 100%
Adjusting the duty cycle setting:
• rotate the Selector dial to position (12),
• rapidly rotate the Adjustor dial back and

HEATER / FAN 4 DIFFERENTIAL
Diff
In order to minimize erratic behavior of
Heater / Fan 4 when ambient room
temperature is exactly at the relative set point,
the differential setting separates this ON / OFF
threshold into two: one ON threshold and one
OFF. This feature greatly reduces equipment
wear.
The temperature difference between the two
thresholds is the differential.
The hysteresis is adjusted in 0.5 degree
increments from a minimum setting of 1°F
(0.5°C) to a maximum setting of 6°F (3°C)
degrees.
Adjusting the differential setting:
• rotate the Selector dial to position (12),
• rapidly rotate the Adjustor dial back and
forth to enter secondary function mode,
• rotate the Selector dial to position (7),
• rotate the Adjustor dial counterclockwise to
decrease the hysteresis setting, clockwise
to increase it.
The differential setting is displayed on the
