paneling, an indication of possible damage during transportation. After removal of the
packaging material, ensure that the GAHP-AR is whole and complete.
Do not leave the packaging material within the reach of children (plastic bags,
Styrofoam spacers and insulators, nails, etc.), because they can be sources of
danger.
The GAHP-AR has a sealed circuit that can be classified as a pressurized vessel;
this means that its internal pressure is greater than the atmospheric pressure. The
fluids inside the sealed circuit are dangerous to one’s health if ingested, inhaled or
if they come in contact with the skin.
Do not perform any interventions on either the sealed circuit or the valves on the
GAHP-AR. If operation on the sealed circuit is necessary, call a qualified technician
or engineer.
Only qualified technicians, strictly complying with the manufacturer’s instructions and the
local standards, should install this product. The manufacturer will not accept responsibility
for personal injuries or property damage resulting from improper installation.
A “Qualified Technician” is defined as someone having specific technical
competence in the air conditioning/heating and gas appliances, according to
international and national standards.
In particular, current laws must be respected with regard to:
- Natural gas equipment
- Electrically powered equipment
- Any other standard that regulates the installation of air conditioning devices with
gaseous fuel.
Before starting the appliance
Before installation, carefully clean the internal tubing and water components, both
on the fuel side and the water system side; this is to remove any residue which
could compromise the functioning of the GAHP-AR.
The company qualified to install the GAHP-AR must verify that:
•
•
•
•
•
the electric and gas supply ratings are the same as those on the data plate
the gas tubing system and the water distribution system are sealed
the GAHP-AR is supplied with the type of gas for which it is preset
the gas supply pressure is within the rating limits indicated by the manufacturer
the gas and electric supply systems are suitable for the capacity needed by the
GAHP-AR and that they are equipped with all safety and checking devices required
by current regulations; the electrical safety of the GAHP-AR chiller is achieved only
4
Edition: 2014-08
Overview and technical specifications section
when it is properly connected to an efficient grounding system, done according to
electrical safety standards in force.
Do not operate the GAHP-AR if electrical or safety components have been
excluded, by-passed or do not function correctly.
If the above mentioned conditions have been satisfied, the installation procedure (done by
the qualified company) and the successive start-up (done by a Robur Corporation
authorized Technical Service Centre, "TAC") may begin.
The initial start-up of the GAHP-AR must only be done by a Robur Corporation
authorized Technical Service Centre (TAC) following the indications provided by
the manufacturer. The warranty of the GAHP-AR is effective only if validated by a
Robur Corporation "TAC".
In case of fault during installation and ignition with the smell of natural gas
If you smell gas:
•
•
•
•
Do not operate electrical devices near the GAHP-AR, such as telephones, multimeters or other devices that can create sparks.
Close the gas supply valve.
Shut off electrical power to the GAHP-AR.
Call a Qualified Service Engineer using a telephone that is not near the GAHP-AR.
In case of fault during installation and ignition without the smell of natural gas
In case of fault or poor functioning of the GAHP-AR without the escape of gas,
immediately shut it down using the appropriate control switch (see “ACTIVATION (AND
DEACTIVATION) OF THE APPLIANCE”, page 15); if the shutdown cycle begins, wait for
it to complete, which takes about 10 minutes; remove electrical power by shutting off the
main power switch and close the gas valve. If the shutdown cycle does not start due to an
occurring problem, directly shut off the electrical power and gas supplies.
Do not attempt any type of intervention or repair.
Perform these operations even if the cooling unit has not been used for a long period of
time, see the “PROLONGED PERIODS OF DISUSE” paragraph on page 24.
To ensure the correct functioning of the chiller and to prevent possible problems, it
should only be shut down using the control switch or through the Direct Digital
Controller (DDC) if mounted.
Avoid turning off the GAHP-AR by interrupting the electrical power supply upstream
of the control switch before this has been turned off and the shutdown cycle has
completed.

Any repairs to the GAHP-AR must be done by a Robur authorized Technical Service
Centre (TAC), using only original replacement parts. Not following these regulations could
compromise their functioning and safety, and also void the warranty if still valid.
If the GAHP-AR is sold or transferred to another owner, make sure that this manual is
included in the transaction so that the new owner and any installers may use it for
consultation purposes.
If the GAHP-AR is decommissioned, contact Robur Corporation for its disposal.
1.2 OPERATION OF THE GAHP-AR
GAHP is the acronym for “Gas Absorption Heat Pump”. The GAHP-AR is a high efficiency
reversible air-water heat pump, operating by a water-ammonia absorption cycle and
designed for outdoor use.
The GAHP-AR is able to chill water down to a temperature of 37.4 °F, or to heat it up to
140°F in heat pump mode with a nominal1 efficiency of 126%.
The cycle of the GAHP-AR is fed by thermal energy provided by a gas burner, therefore
the required electric energy is limited to driving the fan and pump motors (the only
mechanical moving components of the unit).
The GAHP-AR is fed by natural gas or LPG, and supplied with 208-230 V – 60 Hz single
phase electrical power. The inversion (cooling-heating) is done by a complex dedicated
valve.
The evacuation of combustion products takes place through appropriate exhaust terminal,
located on the side of the appliance (see paragraph “GAHP-AR DIMENSIONS”, page 14),
with outlet in a vertical position.
Operating mode
When operating in cooling mode (in summer)
the appliance operates as an absorption chiller, and the heat, taken away from the
cooled environment via the HYDRAULIC CIRCUIT, is dissipated towards the
outside via the air-cooled FINNED COIL.
When operating in heating mode (in winter)
the appliance uses the absorption cooling cycle to recover heat from the outside
environment via the FINNED COIL which, added to the heat produced by the
combustion of natural/L.P.G. gas, is transferred into the EXCHANGER and then

In this section you will find all the indications necessary for the activation, regulation and
control of operation of the appliance via the board present in the electrical panel.
2.1 ACTIVATION (AND DEACTIVATION) OF THE APPLIANCE
Efficient operation and long life of the appliance depend largely on correct use!
If the appliance is connected to a Direct Digital Controller (DDC) and the DDC is in
controller mode, activation and control of the appliance will occur exclusively by
operating the DDC. In this case, refer to the manual supplied with it.
If the appliance is not connected to a DDC, it may be activated and deactivated only by
means of the on/off commands provided by the electrical installation technician.
According to requirements, these on/off commands may be:
-
An on/off switch (CS, consent switch) for activation and deactivation of the
appliance. This switch may be an on/off button, an ambient thermostat, a
programmable timer, or one or more clean contacts controlled by another process. For
details about the type of on/off command installed, contact the plant’s electrical
installation technician.
-
A summer/winter selector switch (W/Y), for selecting the operating mode of the
appliance (cooling or heating).
Activation: the on/off commands are essential.
Do not switch the appliance on or off by connecting it to or disconnecting it from the
power supply directly, as this may be a source of danger and in any case damage
the appliance or the plants connected to it.
Before activating the appliance, check that:
- the gas valve is open;
- the appliance is powered electrically: the general electrical switch must be in the “ON”
position;
- the installation technician has ensured that the hydraulic circuit is supplied in the
correct conditions.
If these conditions are satisfied, it is possible to proceed with activation.
ACTIVATION
Select the operating mode required (cooling or heating) by means of the summer/winter
selector switch, if the mode desired is not already selected.
Switch on the appliance by means of the on/off command (placing it in the "ON" position).
Ed. 2014-08
15
GAHP-AR – Installation, start-up, use and maintenance manual
During operation of the appliance, the summer/winter switch (from summer to
winter operation and vice versa, or so-called "cycle inversion") may require a
maximum of 11 minutes from the time this inversion is invoked by the user.
DEACTIVATION
Switch off the appliance via the on/off command (placing it in the "OFF" position).
the shutdown cycle takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.
Visualization and clearing of operating codes
Operating codes can be generated by the electronic board or by the DDC (if connected to
the appliance).
If these codes arise, it is necessary to follow the instructions in paragraph "WARNINGS
AND ERRORS" on page 90, provided in the APPENDIX, on page 89.
The operating codes generated by the electronic board are visualized on its display and
may also be visualized on the display of the DDC (if fitted).
Operating codes generated by the electronic board can be cleared through the board itself
or from the DDC (if fitted or where possible).
For a description of operating codes generated by the electronic board and how to
clear them, refer to the list of operating codes contained in paragraph “TABLE OF
OPERATING CODES (firmware release 3.027)”, on page 91.
The electronic board (see Figure 1, page 8) is located inside the electrical panel of
the appliance and the display may be viewed through the viewing hole on the front
panel of the unit itself.
Operating codes generated by the DDC:
The operating codes generated by the DDC may be viewed only on the display of
the DDC, and may only be cleared via the DDC.
Operating codes generated by the electronic board during the activation phase of
the appliance (see “TABLE OF OPERATING CODES (firmware release 3.027), page
91).
If the appliance remains inactive for a prolonged period, it is possible that air is present in
the gas pipes. In this case, activation fails and the appliance reports the operating code:
"U612" - on the display, indicating (temporary) arrest of the flame control unit. After a short
interval of time, it automatically begins the activation sequence again. If the code "U612”
persists after three attempts to start the appliance, the appliance flame control unit is
arrested and the display shows a new operating code "E612" – indicating arrest of the
flame control unit. In this case reset is not automatic.
To restore operation of the appliance, carry out a reset of the flame control unit via menu
2 of the electronic board: the procedure is illustrated in Paragraph 2.4, on page 21. After it
is reset, the appliance will make a new attempt to activate.
16
Edition: 2014-08
End user section
If operation of the appliance is arrested several times, contact an authorised Robur
Technical Assistance Centre (TAC).
When activation is successful, the appliance is managed by the electronic board (see
following paragraph).
2.2 ON-BOARD ELECTRONICS
The following descriptions refer to the electronic board with firmware version 3.016.
If the appliance is connected to a Direct Digital Controller (DDC):
if the DDC is in controller mode, control of activation and deactivation of the
appliance occurs exclusively via the DDC. If the DDC is in "monitor" mode, control of
activation and deactivation of the appliance occurs via the on/off commands
provided by the electrical installation technician. For instructions regarding the use of
the DDC, refer to the two books supplied with it, and in particular manual 2:
"final user manual - book 2".
The appliance is equipped with a microprocessor-controlled S61 electronic board
interconnected with an AR10 satellite board, located on the side of the S61 board itself
(see Figure 1, page 8).
The S61 electronic board, contained in the electrical panel, controls the appliance and
displays data, messages and codes during operation. This is how the S61 appears, with
its main components highlighted:

aware of this information, provided in Paragraph 2.2 on page 17.
At the moment of installation, the appliance is set up by the installation technician
for best operation according to the type of plant installed. Subsequently it is
possible to modify the operating parameters, but this is not recommended if not in
possession of the necessary knowledge and experience in order to operate thus. In
any case, to set new operating parameters for the appliance see Paragraph 3.8
"PROGRAMMING OF HYDRAULIC PARAMETERS" on page 44.
2.4 RESET OPERATIONS AND MANUAL DEFROSTING COMMAND
There are several possible reasons why the appliance may have error status and
therefore its operation arrested; such an error situation does not necessarily correspond to
damage or malfunction on the part of the appliance. The cause that has generated the
error may be temporary: examples include the presence of air in the gas supply circuit or
a momentary power outage. In such cases, by operating in menu 2 of the electronic board
it is possible to clear the error status, thereby restoring the appliance to normal operation.
The three parameters available in menu 2 through which it is possible to perform the
actions permitted are: 0 (execution of flame control unit reset), 1 (execution of board error
reset) and 22 (execution of manual defrosting command). By selecting E it is possible to
exit the menu.

PLUMBING INSTALLER
In this section you will find all the instructions necessary for installing the appliance from a
hydraulic viewpoint. The hydraulic system installation technician must consult the
electrical system installation technician in order to decide upon the correct sequence of
the operations to be carried out.
WARNING: incorrect installation may cause damage to people, animals or things.
Before installing the appliance, read carefully the information contained in the
paragraph entitled "WARNINGS”, on page 3.
3.1 GENERAL INSTALLATION PRINCIPLES
Prior to installation, carry out careful internal cleaning of all piping and every other
component to be used in both the hydraulic and the fuel supply plants, in order to
remove any residues that might compromise operation of the appliance.
Installation of the appliance must be carried out in compliance with regulations regarding
planning, installation and maintenance of heating/cooling plants and must be executed by
professionally qualified personnel according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
During the installation phase, observe the following instructions:
¾ Check that an adequate gas supply and distribution network exists, according to
the manufacturer’s indications; see "GAS SUPPLY SYSTEM" on page 37 for the
correct gas supply pressures, .
¾ The appliance must be installed on the outside of buildings, in an area in which
air circulates naturally and which does not require any particular protection from
weather phenomena.
In no case must the appliance be installed inside a room.
¾ No obstruction or overhanging structure (protruding roofs, eaves, balconies,
ledges, trees) must obstruct either the air flowing from the top part of the
appliance, or the exhaust fumes outlet.
¾ The appliance must be installed in such a way that the exhaust fumes outlet is
not in the immediate vicinity of any external air inlets of a building.
Respect current regulations regarding the exhaust fumes outlet.
¾ Do not install the appliance close to flues, chimneys or other similar structures, in
order to prevent hot or polluted air from being drawn by the fan through the
condenser. In order to function correctly the appliance must use clean air from
the environment.
¾ If the appliance must be installed in the vicinity of buildings, make sure that the
appliance itself is outside the line of water dripping from gutters or suchlike.
¾ A cut-off valve must be fitted on the gas supply.
¾ Fit vibration dampings on the hydraulic connections to prevent vibrations from the

3.2 POSITIONING OF THE APPLIANCE
Lifting the appliance and placing it in position
The appliance must be moved on site keeping it in the same packing conditions in which it
leaves the factory.
Packaging must be removed only upon final installation.
If the appliance has to be lifted, connect braces to the openings provided on the base bar,
and use suspension and spacer bars to prevent these braces from damaging the panels
during moving operations (see Figure 6).
the lifting crane and all accessory devices (braces, cables, bars) must be suitable
sized for the load to be lifted. For the weight of the appliance, consult Table 4, page
10.
The manufacturer cannot be held responsible for any damage arising during
the set-up stage of the appliance.
RIGHT SIDE VIEW
Figure 6
-
FRONT VIEW
Moving the appliance - example
The appliance can be installed at ground level, on a terrace or on a roof (if compatible with
its dimensions and weight).
The dimensions and weight of the appliance are given in Table 4, page 10.
MOUNTING BASE
Always place the appliance on a flat, levelled surface made from fireproof material and
that is able to sustain the weight of the appliance itself.
In addition, provide a small “containing” step that will prevent water from spreading during
possible winter defrosting phases.
28
Edition: 2014-08
Plumbing installer section
during winter operation, the appliance, on the basis of temperature and humidity
conditions of the outside air, can carry out defrosting cycles that cause the layer of
frost/ice on the fan coil to melt.
Take this possibility into consideration, adopting appropriate measures (for
example: a containing step and channeling of water into a suitable drain) in order to
prevent uncontrolled spread of water around the appliance and the consequent risk
that a dangerous layer of ice will form.
The manufacturer may not be held responsible for any damage arising from
the failure to observe this warning.
¾ Installation at ground level
If a horizontal support base is unavailable (see also "SUPPORTS and
LEVELLING" on page 30), it is necessary to create a flat level base in concrete
which is larger than the dimensions of the base of the appliance by at least 4÷6”
on each side.
The dimensions of the appliance are given in Table 4, page 10.
Provide a “containing” step and a suitable drainage channel for the water.

GAHP-AR – Installation, start-up, use and maintenance manual
Although the appliance produces vibrations of limited intensity, the use of
vibration dampings (available as accessories, see “Optionals and Spare Parts,
page” 79) is strongly recommended in such cases of installation on roofs or
terraces in which resonance phenomena may arise.
In addition, it is advisable to use flexible connections (vibration dampings)
between the appliance and the hydraulic and gas supply pipes.
Avoid positioning the appliance directly above places of rest or places which
require quiet.
SUPPORTS and LEVELLING
The appliance must be correctly leveled by placing a level on the top part of the appliance.
If necessary, level the appliance by using metal spacers, to be placed in line with the
supports; do not use wooden spacers, as they quickly degrade.

3.3 HYDRAULIC CONNECTIONS
General indications
•
•
The hydraulic plant may be created using pipes in stainless steel, black steel, copper
or cross linked polyethylene for heating/cooling plants. All water pipes and pipe
connections must be adequately insulated in accordance with current regulations, to
prevent heat loss and the formation of condensate.
If glycol antifreeze is to be used (see Paragraph 3.5 on page 39), DO NOT USE
galvanized pipes, as they are potentially subject to corrosion phenomena in the
presence of glycol.

GAHP-AR – Installation, start-up, use and maintenance manual
During the winter period, to prevent the water in the primary circuit from
freezing:
the appliance is equipped with an antifreeze control that activates the external water
circulation pump of the primary circuit and the burner of the appliance itself (when
necessary).
It is therefore necessary to ensure a continuous supply of electrical power and gas
to the appliance throughout the whole winter period.
If the continuity of supply of electrical power and gas cannot be guaranteed,
provide for the use of glycol antifreeze of the inhibited monoethylene type.
If glycol antifreeze is used, DO NOT USE galvanized piping in creating the hydraulic
circuit.
(Consult the notes regarding "Possible use of glycol antifreeze" in Paragraph 3.5 on page
39 and in any case the technical specifications of the glycol that is to be used).
The sizing of the tubes and of the pump must guarantee the nominal water flow rate
necessary for the correct operation of the appliance (for calculation of internal pressure
drops of the appliance refer to the TECHNICAL DATA paragraph, on page 9).
The operations necessary for the first activation or regulation of the appliance and
of the Direct Digital Controller must be carried out exclusively by an authorized
Robur Technical Assistance Centre (TAC).
These operations are described in the SECTION 5, on page 67.
The product's guarantee may be void if the first activation is not carried out by a
Robur TAC.
The following Figure 11 on page 35 shows a typical example of a hydraulic plant for a
single appliance.
Figure 12 on page 36 shows instead a typical example of a hydraulic plant for several

3.4 GAS SUPPLY SYSTEM
The appliance is designed to run on natural gas and L.P.G.
All gas piping must conform to the latest edition of National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1
and all local gas piping codes. In Canada, the gas piping must conform to the CGA
Standard CAN1 B149.1 and .2, "Installation Code for Gas Burning Appliances &
Equipment" and local codes. Your gas utility must be contacted regarding local
requirements, type and size of gas lines. Safe lighting and other performance criteria were
met with the gas manifold and control assembly provided on the chiller, when it underwent
the tests specified in the standards shown on the rating plate.
Adequate combustion and ventilation air have to be provided, in accordance with
section 5.3 “Air for Combustion and Ventilation” of the National Fuel Gas Code,
ANSI Z223.1, appropriate Sections of the Natural Gas Installation Code, CAN/CGAB149.1, or the Propane Installation Code, CAN/CGA-B149.2, or applicable
provisions of the local building codes.
For Natural Gas the minimum Inlet gas pressure to the chiller is 5" W.C. and the maximum
is 14” W.C. For Propane Gas the minimum Inlet gas pressure to the chiller is 11" W.C.
and the maximum is 14" W.C.
For size of gas connection to the unit, see Figure 4 on page 14.
Supplying gas to the appliance at higher pressures than those indicated above can
damage the gas valve, giving rise to a situation of danger.
The installation of gas supply pipes must be carried out in compliance with norms
and current regulations.
L.P.G. may cause corrosion. The connectors between the pipes must be made of a
material that is resistant to this corrosive action.
Vertical gas pipes must be equipped with a siphon and provided with a drain for the
condensate that may form inside the pipe during cold periods. It may also be necessary to
insulate the gas pipe to prevent the formation of excessive condensate.
An approved union should be installed in the gas line near the unit and down stream of
any external shut-off valve that may be required by local codes.
Be sure to use materials resistant to the LPG corrosive action when making pipe
connections.
Use an approved sealing compound resistant to propane gas on all male pipe threads.
The chiller and its gas connections must be leaked tested before placing the chiller
in operation.
The chiller and its individual shut-off valve must be disconnected from the gas supply
piping system during any pressure testing of the gas piping system at test pressures in
excess of 1/2 PSIg.
The chiller must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual
shut-off valve during any pressure testing of the gas piping system at test pressures equal
to or less than 1/2 PSIg

3.5 FILLING OF HYDRAULIC CIRCUIT (to be carried out by installation
technician)
After having completed all the connections of the hydraulic, electrical and gas supply
plants, the hydraulic system installation technician can proceed with filling the hydraulic
circuit, observing the following stages:
You will need: the appliance connected hydraulically and electrically.
1.
Activate the automatic air bleeding valves present in the plant;
2.
Fill the hydraulic circuit, ensuring the minimum water content in the plant, and
adding, if necessary, to the plant water (free of impurities) a quantity of
monoethylene glycol in proportion with the minimum winter temperature in the
installation zone, as indicated in Table 13, page 40.
3.
Bring the plant to the correct pressure, making sure that the pressure of the water in
the plant is not less than 14.5 PSIg and not over 29.0 PSIg.
To facilitate the operation of bleeding air from the hydraulic circuit, the appliance is
equipped with an additional air bleeding valve.
Possible use of glycol antifreeze
Glycols, normally used to lower the freezing point of water, are substances in an
intermediate state of oxidation which, in the presence of oxidizing agents such as oxygen,
are transformed into corresponding acids. This transformation into acids increases the
corrosive nature of the fluid contained in the circuit. For this reason, mixtures that are
commercially available almost always contain inhibiting substances that are able to control
the pH of the solution. A necessary condition for the oxidation of the glycol, and therefore
its degradation, is the presence of an oxidizing agent such as oxygen. In closed circuits in
which no replenishment of water, and therefore of oxygen, occurs over the course of time,
once the oxygen initially present has reacted, the degenerative phenomenon of glycol is
hugely inhibited.
Most circuits, however, are of the non-sealed type, and therefore receive a more or less
continuous supply of oxygen.
Therefore it is essential, whatever type of glycol is in question, to verify that it is
adequately inhibited and that the necessary checks are regularly performed during its
entire period of use.
Antifreeze liquids for cars, which do not contain inhibiting components other than
mono-ethylene glycol, are not recommended for cooling and heating plants.
The manufacturer does not accept any contractual or extra-contractual liability for
damage caused by the incorrect use or disposal of glycol antifreeze.
It is equally important to recall that the use of monoethylene glycol modifies the thermo
physical characteristics of the water in the plant, and in particular its density, viscosity and
specific average heat. Always check the date of expiry and/or degradation of the product
with the supplier.

Table 13 gives the approximate freezing temperature of the water, the consequent
increased pressure drop of the appliance and of the circuit, according to the percentage of
monoethylene glycol. This table should be taken in regard for the sizing of the pipes and
the circulation pump (for calculation of internal pressure drops of the appliance, refer to
the TECHNICAL DATA paragraph, on page 9).
Nevertheless, it is advisable to consult the technical specifications of the monoethylene
glycol used. If automatic loading systems are used, a seasonal check of the quantity of
glycol present in the plant is also necessary.

Edition: 2014-08
Plumbing installer section
The way the installation is operated can be the cause of possible degradation of water
quality.
Moreover, abnormally massive water top-up or reintegration can cause a drift of chemical
or physical above-mentioned parameters. Reintegration should not exceed 5% per year of
the total amount of water. It is advised to check regularly the water quality, especially in
case of automatic or periodic top-up.
In case water treatment is needed, this operation should be carried out by a professional
or competent person, following strictly the instructions by the manufacturer or supplier of
the chemical substances for the treatment, since dangers could arise for health, for the
environment and for Robur appliances.
Several products for water treatment are available on the market.
In case washing of the pipes is needed, this operation should be carried out by a
professional or competent person, following strictly the instructions by the manufacturer or
supplier of the chemical substances for the washing, avoiding the use of substances
aggressive for stainless steel or containing/releasing active chlorine.
Please make sure the pipes are properly rinsed in order to remove any residue of
chemical substances from the pipes.
Robur is not liable for ensuring that water quality is always compliant with what reported in
Table 14 is not’s. Non-compliance with indications above may jeopardize the proper
operation, integrity and reliability of Robur appliances, invalidating the warranty.

-
Parameters for hydraulic configuration of the appliance
Description of parameters:
- Select water thermostat action, parameters 73 and 160: these parameters may have
two values, 0 or 1. When the user chooses:
• 0:
the temperature that affects the activation and deactivation of the
appliance is detected by the sensor on the INLET water, i.e. water
flowing into the appliance.
• 1:
the temperature that affects the activation and deactivation of the
appliance is detected by the sensor on the OUTLET water, i.e. water
flowing out of the appliance.
- Water set-point, parameters 75 and 161: these parameters set the water temperature
that, when reached, causes the appliance to be deactivated.
- Water differential, parameters 76 and 162: these parameters represent an interval in
degrees that, when added to the set-point, defines the temperature at which the
appliance is reactivated.
Operation in cooling mode:
The appliance functions by cooling the water until it reaches the set-point temperature. At
this point it switches off. The temperature of the water rises until it reaches the
temperature corresponding to "set-point + differential"; when this is reached the appliance
switches on again.

progressively hotter, until it reaches a temperature of +48.2 °F = 44.6 °F + 3.6 °F.
The appliance switches on again, and the plant water cools down again.
The cycle is repeated.
Operation in heating mode:
The appliance functions by heating the water until it reaches the set-point temperature. At
this point it switches off. The temperature of the water rises again until it reaches the
temperature corresponding to "set-point + differential"; when this is reached the appliance
switches on again.

4.2 OPERATION WITH ON/OFF COMMAND SWITCH
Before making the electrical connections, make sure that work is not carried out on
live elements.
General indications
- Check that the power supply voltage is 208-230 V 1N - 60 Hz.
- Connect the appliance to the mains supply according to the electrical diagrams in
Figure 17 and Figure 18, Figure 19 or Figure 20 or Figure 21, pages 53 and following.
- Make the electrical connection in such a way that the ground wire is longer than the
live wires. In this way it will be the last wire to be pulled away if the mains cable should
accidentally be pulled, and will thus guarantee the ground connection.
The electrical safety of the appliance is guaranteed only when it is correctly
connected to an efficient grounding system, executed in accordance with current
safety regulations. Do not use gas pipes to ground electrical appliances.
Connecting the appliance
To connect the appliance to the mains supply and to connect the appropriate on/off
commands:
You will need: the appliance in its permanent location.
3. Prepare a cable of the 3x16 AWG type for the power supply to the appliance. Ground
cable is conventionally yellow-green colored.
4. Connect the appliance to the mains (with the cable indicated in point 1), fitting in
proximity to the mains a general external bipolar disconnecting switch (see detail GS)
with 2 type T 5A fuses or a 10 A magnetothermic switch.
5. Connect the on/off command and the summer/winter selector (W/Y) to the terminals R,
W and Y of the control circuit of the appliance as shown in Figure 18 on page 53 (see
details "CS" and "W/Y").
For the appliance to operate correctly, it is ALWAYS necessary to provide specific
on/off commands. Do not use the general mains external disconnecting switch (GS)
to switch the appliance on or off.
6. Complete the installation by connecting the pump electrically, as indicated in
Paragraph 4.3 on page 54.

4.3 CONTROL OF PLANT PUMP
Plant pump is controlled by the electronic board.
Controlling the pump from the electronic board of the appliance
Control of the plant water circulation pump from the electronic board of the appliance
depends on the power rating of the pump itself. 2 cases may be distinguished:
•
•
Direct control from the electronic board with power absorbed by the pump of less
than 4 A.
If the power absorbed by the pump is less than 4 A, make the connection as shown
in Figure 19, page 55 and check that the jumper (J10, located at the bottom left of the
electronic board, above the "NO Contact" contacts) is CLOSED, as shown in the
detail "jumper closed".
Direct control from the electronic board with power absorbed by the pump of more
than 4 A.
If the power absorbed by the pump is less than or equal to 4 A, make the connection
as shown in Figure 20, page 55 using a control relay.
In this case it is necessary to OPEN the jumper (J10, located at the bottom left of the
electronic board, above the "NO Contact" contacts) positioning it as shown in the
detail "jumper open" of the Figure.
For the connection of a single pump for several appliances connected on the same
hydraulic circuit, it is always necessary to provide a safety transformer (secondary
SELV) and a respective control relay, and to make the connections according to the
diagram in Figure 21, page 56.

4.5 USE OF THE DIRECT DIGITAL CONTROLLER (DDC)
This paragraph illustrates the operations to be performed when one or more
appliances are connected to a Direct Digital Controller (DDC). For specific
information regarding the DDC, refer to the specific manuals supplied with it.
The appliance and the DDC communicate with each other via a CAN bus network.
The CAN bus network is characterized by a series of elements (appliances or DDCs)
called nodes, connected to each other by a three-wire cable. The nodes are of two types:
terminal nodes and intermediate nodes.
- Terminal nodes are appliances or DDCs that are connected to one other element only.
- Intermediate nodes are appliances or DDCs that are connected to two other elements.

b) 3 nodes = 2 appliances + 1 DDC
The diagram illustrates 2 cases of connection on a CAN BUS network:
a) 1 appliance is connected to 1 DDC. The two elements, appliance and DDC, are
terminal nodes of the network, as they are each connected to one other element only.
b) 2 appliances are connected to each other and to 1 DDC. Appliance "B" and the DDC
are terminal nodes, while appliance "A" is an intermediate node as it is connected to 2
elements, which are appliance "B" and the DDC.
It is possible to place one DDC at any point of the CAN bus network: appliances and
DDCs may act equally as terminal or intermediate nodes.
One DDC can control and monitor up to 16 appliances. If there are more than 16
appliances on the network, it is necessary to connect more than one DDC on the
same network, up to a maximum of 3.
The CAN bus cable
The CAN bus cable must meet the Honeywell SDS standard.
The following table gives details of some types of CAN bus cable, grouped according to
the maximum distance covered by each single type.

AWG may be used.
Having calculated the length that is required for the type of current installation, purchase
the correct cable.
As shown in the table, the CAN connection requires a CAN bus cable with 3 wires. If the
cable available has more than three colored wires, choose which colors to use and cut the
other unnecessary ones.
The ROBUR NETBUS cable is available as an accessory – see "Optionals and Spare
Parts”, page 79.
Connection of the CAN BUS cable to the appliance

•
correct installation;
correct use.
On leaving the factory, the appliance is reliable and tested.
In order to correctly execute the whole procedure for the first start-up of the appliance, it is
necessary to perform the following operations in the order shown below:
-
initial verification of plant compliance;
-
regulation of gas flow to the burners and switching on of the appliance;
-
regulation of the plant operating parameters according to the user's requirements.
Preliminary verification of plant compliance
The Robur TAC technician must:
¾ check that the whole plant has been set up in accordance with its design,
following the instructions supplied by the manufacturer and respecting current
legislation.
(The project must have been drawn up by a qualified self-employed professional
person);
¾ check personally that all of the connections (hydraulic/gas and electrical) of the
appliance (and of the Direct Digital Controller, if connected to the appliance) have
been made correctly;
¾ check that the necessary conditions for plant compliance effectively exist (as per
the declaration consigned to the user by the qualified firm that has carried out
installation of the appliance).
The Declaration of Compliance CERTIFIES that the plant conforms to current
regulations.
This declaration is a compulsory document, and as such must be issued by law to
the owner by the qualified firm that has overseen the installation of the appliance.
¾ check that the water pressure and flow in the hydraulic circuit and the static gas
supply network pressure are correct, as indicated by the manufacturer.
If all the conditions listed above exist, the TAC can proceed with the operations,
performing the "first activation" of the appliance.
If any non-compliant elements arise during the first verification, the TAC may choose not
to proceed with the operation of "first activation".
68
Edition: 2014-08
First start-up and maintenance section
In this case, the Robur TAC technician must:
¾ advise the user/installation technician of any installation anomaly;
¾ inform the user/installation technician of any situation that is judged to be
hazardous for the appliance and for people;
¾ inform the user/installation technician of any missing documentation relating to
the plant;
¾ indicate, in relation to the reports made, any corrective measures to be taken on
the plant which the installation technician will have to carry out in order to
proceed with the operation of "first activation".
It is the responsibility of the user/installation technician to carry out any corrective
measures on the plant indicated by the TAC.
Following such corrective measures performed by the installation technician, the
TAC will assess the plant again.
At this point, if, in the opinion of the TAC, safety and compliance conditions exist,
the TAC must carry out the "first activation".
Plant situations that are hazardous for people and for the appliance
If one of the following hazardous situations arises, the TAC must not carry out the
"first activation":
-
appliance installed in a closed room;
-
appliance installed too near combustible surfaces or in any case in conditions that do
not permit access and maintenance operations in safety;
-
control of switching on and off of the appliance not via the DDC or consent switch (CS)
but via the internal disconnecting switch (GS) inside the general electrical panel;
-
situations attributable to defects or failures of the appliance that took place during its
transport or installation;
-
smell of gas likely due to leaks from the plant itself and in any case all situations that
are due to non-compliant plants, considered (after on-site evaluations) potentially
hazardous.
Anomalous plant situations.
If one of the following situations is met, the TAC may carry out the "first activation"
at its discretion, but the appliance will be left off until conditions dictated by the
manufacturer are restored:
-
-
installations (potentially not hazardous) not carried out according to good workmanship
practices, installations (potentially not hazardous) not complying with current national
and local regulations;
installations (potentially not hazardous) not carried out according to good workmanship
practices, not complying with the instructions supplied by the manufacturer;
installations that can lead to operating anomalies of the appliance.

Regulation of gas flow to the burner and activation
To carry out the first activation of the appliance, it is necessary to perform the operations
described below, proceeding according to the following sequential order.
•
•
Open the gas supply tap to the plant and ascertain that there is no smell of gas
(indicating possible leaks).
Close the gas tap and check the static gas mains pressure (as per the specific
procedure "Regulation of gas flow" set out further on: from point 1 to point 6).
Prepare the units of the appliance for the operation of regulation of gas (as per the
specific procedure described further on: from point 7 to point 9).
Start the appliance electrically, after:
-
ascertaining one final time that there is no smell of gas;
-
activating the external disconnecting switch of the mains power supply (“GS”, provided
by the electrical system installation technician on a suitable panel) moving it to the
"ON" position (point 10 of the specific procedure);
Start up the DDC electrically, if provided (point 10 of the specific procedure; for this
operation, see the specific manual for the installation technician – book 1);
Carry out activation of the appliance via the on/off commands (or via the DDC, if
connected);
(point 11 of the specific procedure; if the appliance is connected to the DDC, for this
operation consult the specific final user manual – book 2);
Proceed with regulation of the gas pressure to the burner of the appliance (as in the
specific procedure set out further on: from point 13 onwards).
Check the dynamic gas mains pressure (if possible on the appliance that is furthest
from the point where the plant is connected to the mains) by performing the following
points in order:
stop the appliance
connect the manometer (points 1 and 2);
start the appliance again (points 11 and 12);
read the dynamic mains pressure on the manometer and check that this value satisfies
the requirements of point 4 (see also the paragraph “GAS SUPPLY SYSTEM” on page
37).
Carry out the regulation of the operating parameters of the plant.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
In the first activation stage, on the display of the electronic board of the appliance
(and/or on the display of the DDC, if connected), an operating code might be
visualised.
If the operating code is generated by the electronic board of the appliance, see the
list of codes in Table 27 on page 96. If the operating code is generated by the DDC,
see the list of codes given in the "installation technician manual – book 1" of the
DDC (supplied with it).
Successful first activation ONLY certifies the correct operation of the appliance
(and of the DDC, if connected).
It DOES NOT CERTIFY that the plant conforms to current legislation.

Edition: 2014-08
First start-up and maintenance section
Regulation of gas flow
In the phase of first activation of the appliance, regulation of gas flow to the burners
of the units of the appliance must be carried out exclusively by an authorized Robur
Technical Assistance Centre (TAC). In this phase, NEITHER the user NOR the
installation technician is authorized to perform such operations; this could invalidate
the guarantee of the appliance.
The appliance is supplied with all of its units already regulated for the type of gas for
which the appliance itself is set up. The type of gas for which the appliance is set up can
be identified from the adhesive label located on the internal air blower of the units.
During the first activation procedure it is in any case necessary to perform checking and
regulation of pressure at the burner of all units of the appliance.
On each unit, proceed as follows, referring to the parameters indicated in Table 21 on
page 72 and to the Figure 32 on page 72:
You will need: the appliance connected to the gas and electricity supply, switched
off, with the gas valve closed and the front panel removed
Check the static gas mains pressure:
1.
Unscrew the fixing screw of the gas pressure intake (detail B in Figure 32 on page
72).
2.
Connect the manometer to the gas intake (mains pressure).
3.
Open the gas valve.
4.
Read the value of the static gas mains pressure on the manometer and check that
the value read is correct:
- 7 inWC for natural gas (G20)
- 11 inWC for L.P. gas.
5.
Close the gas valve.
6.
Remove the manometer and retighten the fixing screw of the gas pressure intake.
Regulate the gas flow:
7.
With gas valve closed, unscrew the fixing screw of the gas pressure outlet (detail C,
Figure 32 on page 72).
8.
Connect the manometer to the gas pressure outlet.
9.
Open the gas valve.
10. Supply electrical power to the appliance (and to the DDC, if connected).
11. Start the appliance via the on/off commands (or via the DDC, if connected and in
controller mode).
12. Wait for the burner to ignite. If ignition fails at the first attempt, the flame control unit
makes three further attempts. If the burner fails to ignite at the fourth attempt, the
flame control system is arrested. In this case, reset the flame control box via the
electronic board (or the DDC, if connected) and repeat point 11 until successful
ignition of the burner is achieved.

IGNITION CONTROL BOX
When power is supplied to the unit (to the “R” terminal on the ignition control box), ignition
control will reset, perform a self check routine, flash the diagnostic LED, and enter
thermostat scan state.
When the control switch is closed, the electronic control board will energize the ignition
control box starting the ignition sequence (24 volts applied to the “W” terminal on the
ignition box).
The ignition control box will check the differential air pressure switch for open contacts.
•
If the differential air pressure switch contacts are closed and stay closed for 30
seconds, an air flow fault will appear. The diagnostic LED on the ignition control box
indicates this fault. In this mode, the ignition control box pre-mixer blower will not
start.
If the pressure switch contacts are open, the ignition control box pre-mixer blower will
instead start.
•
An air flow fault will occur if the air pressure switch contacts remain opened for 30
seconds after the pre-mixer blower start. The diagnostic LED on the ignition control
box indicates this fault. In this mode, the ignition control box will keep the pre-mixer
blower energized.
If the air pressure switch contacts close after the pre-mixer blower starts (normal
operation), a pre-purge delay begins and the ignition sequence continues.
Next, the ignition control box energizes an ignition transformer that generates a high
intensity spark at the igniter to ignite the gas/air mixture. Simultaneously, the gas valve is
energized, allowing the flow of gas to the burner.
As soon as the ignition period ends, the flame sensor checks for flame presence. If the
flame is detected, the gas valve and pre-mixer blower remain energized.
Should the burner fail to light, flame is not detected during the first trial for ignition: the gas
valve and ignition transformer are de-energized and the ignition control box begins an
inter-purge delay before another ignition attempt. The control will attempt two additional
ignition trials (total of 3 ignition trials) before going into lockout. In lockout, the gas valve
will de-energize immediately and the pre-mixer blower will turn off. Ignition control box
requests a reset operation to restart.
The thermostat (“W” terminal), air pressure switch and burner flame are constantly
monitored to assure proper system operation. When the call for heat has ended (24volts
removed from “W” terminal on ignition control), the gas valve is de-energized immediately.
The ignition control then senses loss of flame and de-energizes the pre-mixer blower.
To reset the ignition box, see related procedure in paragraph “RESET OPERATIONS
AND MANUAL DEFROSTING COMMAND”, on page 21.

WARNINGS AND ERRORS
If, during the operation of the appliance, the display of the electronic board of the
appliance (or also of the display of the Direct Digital Controller, if connected) signals an
operating code, it is necessary to:
-
take note of the indications shown on the display;
-
consult the (specific) list of the operating codes;
For a list of the operating codes generated by the S61 electronic board,
refer to Table 27 on page 96.
If the appliance is connected to a DDC, a list of the operating codes
generated by the DDC is provided in the DDC’s manual (see "installation
technician manual – book 1");
-
follow the instructions given in it strictly (contacting the authorized Robur Technical
Assistance Centre, "TAC", when required).
If, after these operations have been carried out, the appliance does not start, first perform
the following simple checks:
-
verify that the on/off command controls (CS, W/Y: see Figure 18 on page 53) or that
the DDC (if connected and in controller mode) are in such a position as to require the
operation of the appliance;
-
ensure that the external disconnecting switch fitted by the electrical installation
technician on a suitable panel (GS: see Figure 17, Figure 19 and Figure 20 from page
53 to 55) is in the "ON" position;
-
check that the gas supply valve is open;
-
verify that there are no further indications given on the display.
At this point, if the appliance still fails to start:

-
refrain from proceeding by trials and errors. Instead, ask an authorised Robur
Technical Assistance Centre (TAC) to intervene, communicating the operating code
reported;
-
disconnect the appliance from the gas and electricity mains, interrupting the gas
supply by means of the tap and the power supply by means of the external
disconnecting switch "GS", and await the arrival of the TAC contacted.
For the operating codes generated by the S61 electronic board of the appliance, refer to
the Table 27 on page 96, that follows.
For instructions regarding how to clear operating codes via the S61 board of the
appliance, refer to paragraph 2.4 on page 21.
