PRECAUTIONS
We strongly recommend installing supplementary natural
ventilation as well as a back-up thermostat on at least one
cooling stage (refer to the wiring diagram enclosed with this
user's manual to connect the thermostat).
Although fuses at the input and outputs of the controller
protect its circuits in case of an overload or overvoltage, we
recommend installing an additional protection device on the
controller's supply circuit.
The room temperature where the controller is located MUST
ALWAYS REMAIN BETWEEN 32°F AND 104°F (0°C TO 40°C).
To avoid exposing the controller to harmful gases or excessive humidity, it is preferable to install it in a corridor.
DO NOT SPRAY WATER ON THE CONTROLLER
FOR CUSTOMER USE
Enter the serial number located on the
side of the controller below for future
reference.

FEATURES
The TC5-1N4F1A is an electronic device used for environmental control in
livestock buildings. It allows the user to maintain a specified target temperature by controlling the operation of ventilation and heating equipment.
One stage of variable speed fans can be connected to the controller, two
stages of constant-speed fans, as well as curtains, foggers and heaters can
be connected to the controller.
The main features of the TC5-1N4F1A are as follows:
THREE-DIGIT DISPLAY
A three-digit display provides a high level of accuracy, allowing the user to
specify a temperature to within one tenth of a degree (in Fahrenheit or Celsius units).
PILOT LIGHTS
Pilot lights indicating the state of outputs allow the user to monitor the
operation of the system without having to enter the building.
MINIMUM VENTILATION CYCLE
When ventilation is not required for cooling, the first stage fans can be operated either continuously or intermittently to reduce the level of humidity and
supply oxygen to the room.
TEMPERATURE AND MINIMUM VENTILATION SPEED CURVES
The controller can be set to automatically change the temperature set point
and the minimum ventilation speed over a given period of time in accordance
with the user's requirements by specifying a temperature curve and a minimum ventilation speed curve with up to six different points each.
CHOICE OF TEN MOTOR CURVES
The variation in motor speed resulting from a change in voltage will depend
on the make and capacity of the motor. In order to achieve a high degree of
compatibility between controller and motor, the user can choose from among
ten different motor curves, thus ensuring that the correct voltage is supplied.
HIGH/LOW TEMPERATURE ALARM OUTPUT
4
TC5-1N4F1A.rev.05
TC5-1N4F1A
HUMIDITY COMPENSATION
The stage 1 minimum speed can be adjusted automatically as a function of
relative humidity. As humidity increases, the minimum speed of stage 1
fans increases proportionnally to compensate for the change.
FULL-SPEED FAN START-UP
In order to overcome the inertia of the ventilation system components and
de-ice the fan blades in cold weather conditions, the controller supplies
maximum voltage to the variable speed fans during the 2 seconds immediately following each start-up.
FOUR INDEPENDENT TEMPERATURE PROBE INPUTS
Up to four temperature probes can be connected to the controller in order to
obtain a more accurate reading of the average room temperature and a
faster reaction time.
OUTSIDE TEMPERATURE COMPENSATION ON CURTAIN SPEED
Curtain opening and closing times can be decreased as a function of outside temperature.
OVERLOAD AND OVERVOLTAGE PROTECTION
Fuses are installed at the input and outputs of the controller to protect its
circuitry in the case of an overload or overvoltage.
COMPUTER CONTROL
The controller can be connected to a computer, thus making it possible to
centralize the management of information and diversify control strategies.
CONTROL OF AIR INLET MOVEMENT
If the TC5-1N4F1A is used in combination with a PF-5B controller, the movement of the air inlets can be coordinated with the operation of the fans using
a potentiometer located on the panel drive. This allows the air inlets to be
adjusted correctly, without the influence of uncontrollable factors such as
wind or air from adjoining rooms.
TEST MODE
A test mode allows you to simulate temperature changes and verify controller performance.

MOTOR TYPES
The relationship between the voltage supplied to a motor and its operating
speed is described by a motor curve. This curve varies with the make and
capacity of the motor. The various motors available in the industry have been
divided into ten categories and the controller has been programmed with a
different motor curve for each of these categories. To ensure that the
controller supplies the correct voltages, an appropriate curve must be
selected for Stage 1 according to the type of fan motors used.

Extending the Probes
Each probe can be extended up to 500 feet (150 meters). To extend a probe:
n
Use a shielded cable of outside diameter between 0.245 and 0.260 in
(6.22 and 6.60 mm) (the cable dimensions should not be under 18
AWG) to ensure the cable entry is liquid tight. Do not ground the
shielding.
n
It is preferable to solder the cable joint to ensure a proper contact
between the two cables.
10
TC5-1N4F1A.rev.05

CHANGING THE PARAMETER SETTINGS
USING THE DISPLAY
Flashing Values: The display will flash in certain cases
and not in others. The flashing indicates that the value
shown can be adjusted. A
value that is not flashing cannot be adjusted.
78.0
Relative and Absolute Values: Some parameter adjustments are displayed
both as a relative value and an absolute temperature. This applies to all heating
and cooling differentials, the mist differential and the heater offset. The
parameter is first displayed as a relative value. The corresponding absolute
temperature is displayed after six seconds if no action is taken by the user.
The absolute value is the temperature at which the stage turns on (except in
the case of the heater and mist offsets where the value displayed is the
temperature at which the stage turns off). If the user turns the adjustment
knob, the relative value reappears. For example, when the user turns the
selection knob to a differential position, i.e. STAGE 2, the sequence is as
follows:
(i) The current differential for stage 2 flashes on the display, alternating with
"St 2".

A curve is defined using six points. Each point specifies a day number and
a set point for that day. Once the points of the curve are defined, the curve
must be activated. The controller will change the temperature set point every
hour in a linear fashion between consecutive points of the curve. When the
last point of the curve is reached, the temperature set point for that day is
maintained until the curve is reactivated.
NOTES :
i) All six points of the curve must be specified. If six points are not needed,
repeat the last temperature value for each unnecessary point.
ii) Certain restrictions apply to reduce the risk of errors:
- The highest possible day number is 99.
- Decreasing day numbers are not allowed.
- Increasing temperatures are not allowed.
- The temperature variation cannot exceed 3°F (1.6°C) per day.

HUMIDITY COMPENSATION
The stage 1 minimum speed can be adjusted automatically as a function of
relative humidity. As humidity increases, the stage 1 minimum speed increases proportionally to compensate for the change. At humidity levels at
or below the humidity set point, stage 1 minimum speed is equal to the
normal uncompensated speed. The user specifies the percentage increase
in minimum speed for a relative humidity equal to the humidity set point +
10%. For example, if the minimum speed is 40% and the compensation
adjustment is 30%, the minimum speed will be adjusted to 70% of full
speed when the humidity rises 10% above the humidity set point. In
addition to adjusting the minimum speed, the humidity compensation feature also changes the operation of the minimum ventilation cycle: if the
controller is operating in minimum ventilation mode when the relative humidity exceeds the humidity set point, the minimum ventilation fans are
operated continuously rather than cycled.

MINIMUM VENTILATION SPEED CURVE
The user can define a minimum ventilation speed curve to adjust the Stage
1 minimum speed automatically over a given time period. Each curve is
defined by six points. Each point specifies a day number and a fan speed
for that day. Once the points are defined, the minimum speed curve must
be activated. When the minimum speed curve is activated, the controller
adjusts the Stage 1 minimum speed every hour in a linear fashion between two consecutive points.
When the last point of the curve is reached, the curve is deactivated. The
controller maintains the minimum speed specified for this point until the
curve is reactivated or until a new single minimum speed is specified using
the first method.

NOTE:
If the room temperature falls below "Set Point - 5.0oF (2.8oC) - heater
offset - heater differential", the fans will begin to run at the minimum speed
specified for the first point of the curve and will continue to do so as
long as the room temperature remains below the set point. When the
room temperature rises above the set point, the fans will return to the
current minimum speed, calculated according to the minimum speed curve.

Interaction Between Temperature and Minimum Speed
Curves
•
The minimum speed curve can be activated only if the temperature curve is already activated
•
All points of the minimum speed curve other than the first one are
automatically given day numbers identical to those specified for the temperature curve. Only the first point of the minimum speed curve has an
adjustable day number. This day number must be greater or equal to the
day number specified for the first point of the temperature curve and less
than the day number specified for the second point of the temperature
curve (see example 1).

•
When the minimum speed curve is activated, it will effectively be
operating (i.e. the controller will begin to adjust the minimum speed according to the specified points of the curve) only when the current day number
of the temperature curve reaches the first day number of the minimum
speed curve.

•
If you activated the temperature curve yesterday, the current day
number of the temperature curve is d6. Therefore, if you activate the minimum speed curve today, it will effectively be in operation in 4 days, when
the current day number of the temperature curve reaches d10. In the
meantime, the fans will run at the specified single minimum speed
(see example 2).
•
If you activated the temperature curve six days ago, the current day
number of the temperature curve is d11. Therefore, if you activate the
minimum speed curve today, it will effectively be in operation the moment
you activate it. In this case, the current minimum speed will be a value
between 10% and 20%.

GLOSSARY
BANDWIDTH: The temperature interval within which the variable-speed
fans of a given stage increase or decrease in speed proportionally to the
temperature.
CASCADING HEATERS: Heaters operate in a sequence. As the
average room temperature drops, additional heaters are turned on as
needed.
CURTAIN DEAD BAND: The dead band is the temperature difference
between the opening and closing temperatures of the curtains. Within
this interval, the curtains are at rest.
DEFAULT VALUE: A typical parameter setting defined at the factory.
DIFFERENTIAL: The differential is the temperature difference between
the moment the constant-speed fans or heating units of a given stage
start running and the moment they return to a stop.
HYSTERESIS: A hysteresis is used to smooth the transition from one
state to another. For example, when the temperature drops to the cut-off
point for a stage of constant-speed fans, the fans will actually be cut off at
slightly less than the cut-off point. This way, if the temperature fluctuates
around the cut-off point without dropping significantly below it, the controller will not oscillate between two states. For example, if the hysteresis is
0.3°F and the stage 2 fans are programmed to be cut off at 75°F, the cutoff will actually occur at 74.7°F.
MINIMUM VENTILATION CYCLE: When the room temperature is below
the set point, the Stage 1 fans operate intermittently to provide minimum
ventilation to the room.
MINIMUM VENTILATION SPEED CURVE: When Stage 1 operates
variable-speed fans, they will run at minimum speed during the minimum
ventilation cycle. The user can define a minimum ventilation speed curve
to adjust the Stage 1 minimum speed automatically over a given time
period. The minimum speed increases over time as the animals grow.
OFFSET: An offset is a temperature difference from the set point that
normally defines a cut-off point for a stage operation. For example, a
heater offset of 2°F means the heaters will turn off at 2°F below the set
point.

TC5-1N4F1A
RAMPING ON STAGE 1: When the temperature rises to the point
where Stage 1 constant-speed fans are needed for cooling, the running
time of the fans is increased gradually from the minimum ventilation
settings up to full operation. Likewise, when the temperature drops
below the set point, the running time is decreased gradually until the
minimum ventilation settings are reached.
SET POINT: The set point is the target room temperature. When the
temperature is above the set point, the controller cools the room by
turning on the cooling fans. When the temperature is below the set
point, the controller heats the room by turning on the heaters.
TEMPERATURE CURVE: The controller can be set to automatically
change the temperature set point over a given period of time in accordance with the user's requirements. The set point decreases over time
as the animals grow.
ZONED HEATERS: When zoned heaters are used, heaters in each
zone operate according to their own probes rather than the average
temperature for the entire room. In this way, heaters across zones are
independent of one another.
