Model 1150 Steam Humidifier. Failure of humidifier may result.
PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION
The Aprilaire Automatic Steam Humidifier Control is designed to be
installed in the return duct of the HVAC system. The control strategy of the
Automatic Steam Humidifier Control is matched to the humidifier being
controlled: when used with a Model 1150 Aprilaire Steam Humidifier, the
Control supplies an on/off signal to the humidifier. When used with a
Model 1160 or 1180 Aprilaire Steam Humidifier, the Control supplies a
modulating signal to the humidifier. In terms of outdoor temperature
compensation, the Control can be set up in automatic or manual mode,
regardless of the humidifier model being controlled. The automatic mode
incorporates the supplied Outdoor Temperature Sensor to automatically
adjust the control set-point based on the outdoor temperature. The manual
mode does not require an outdoor temperature measurement and is used
for specific set-point control with the control set-point manually adjusted by
the user. The Automatic Steam Humidifier Control will accurately control
the humidity in the conditioned space within the range of 15% – 55% RH.
CONTROL TYPE
ON/OFF CONTROL FOR MODEL 1150
The Automatic Steam Humidifier Control sends a 10 VDC signal to the
humidifier when the measured return air relative humidity is 3% or more
below the set-point. This energizes the humidifier at 100% output. The
Steam Humidifier is either on at 100% capacity or it is off.
MODULATING CONTROL FOR MODEL 1160 & 1180
The Automatic Steam Humidifier Control sends a signal to the humidifier
between 0 and 10 VDC based on: a) the difference between measured
relative humidity and set-point relative humidity, and b) where this
difference or ‘error’ falls within an adjustable proportional control band.
The output of the Control, and therefore the Steam Humidifier, is a
‘proportion’ of maximum output based on ‘a’ and ‘b’ above. See Figure 1
for graphical representation of the output.

As an example, using the 12% proportional band (factory-setting), when the
measured RH is 6% above the set-point the output will be 0 VDC; when the
measured RH is 6% below set-point the output will be 10 VDC; when the
measured RH is 3% below set-point the output will be approximately 7.5
VDC. The humidifier uses this varying signal to time-proportion the
operation of the heating elements in the tank. 10 VDC output corresponds
with 100% humidifier capacity, 5 VDC with 50% capacity, etc. Modulating
control will result in a more precise control of relative humidity.
Improper jumper settings may damage humidifier.
The shunt on the JP2 header pin must be set in accordance with the
instructions in this manual.
STEP 1: VERIFY CONTROL TYPE
When shipped with a Steam Humidifier, the Automatic Steam Humidifier
Control is preset at the factory to match the humidifier model: Model 1150
Steam Humidifier is configured for on/off control while the Model
1160/1180 Steam Humidifier is configured for modulating control. When
shipped as a replacement (Model 57), the Control is preset for use with a
Model 1150 (i.e., on/off control). If using the Model 57 with a Model 1160
or 1180, the ‘control type’ setting must be changed for modulating control.
See below.
Remove the door to the Automatic Steam Humidifier Control and look at the
area on the circuit board above the terminal block. The three-pin header
labeled JP2 should be set in the following manner:
For the Model 1150, the Control must be set to the on/off configuration.
The shunt must be placed on the 2 & 3 pins. See Figure 2.
FIGURE 2 – On/Off Setting for Model 1150
OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE COMPENSATION
AUTOMATIC MODE
The automatic mode is the preferred method when the application
requires that the Control automatically adjust the RH set-point based on
the outdoor temperature. This is recommended for all comfort-based
applications such as office buildings, schools, day cares, etc. It is also
recommended for any application where the primary concern is to avoid
the potential for condensation that can form on areas within the building
such as windows and within walls. When installed in this mode, the
Control utilizes an Outdoor Temperature Sensor that will track the actual
outdoor temperature. The Control then automatically adjusts the desired
indoor RH.
MANUAL MODE (SPECIFIC SET-POINT CONTROL)
The manual mode is the preferred method when the application requires
that a specific set-point be maintained regardless of the outdoor
temperature. This is recommended for all process-based applications
such as print shops, book stores, test facilities, etc.
When installed in this mode, the Outdoor Temperature Sensor is replaced
with a “manual” resistor case that prevents the Control from adjusting
the space RH set-point based on the outdoor temperature, and controls
to the specific set-point selected on the Control.
Note: If the building is not designed to handle the amount of RH the
humidifier is supplying, the building occupants may need to adjust the RH
setting on the Control to a lower value during extreme days to prevent
condensation on interior surfaces. The RH setting should be adjusted
upward when the outdoor temperature goes up.

The Control must be mounted in the return duct of the HVAC system.
See Figure 4 for a split-system installation and Figure 5 for a rooftop unit
installation. The Control must be at least 1 foot upstream of the steam
dispersion tube and any fresh air intake ductwork. Use the template in the
back of this manual to mark the duct opening. After cutting the hole in the
duct, mount the Control tightly to the duct using 4 sheet metal screws
(not provided).
The location of the Outdoor Temperature Sensor must meet these three
requirements:
1. Must be mounted on North, East or West side of building out of
direct sunlight
2. Must be at least 3 feet from all exhaust vents
3. Must be above expected snow line (See Figure 6)
Incorrect humidity levels will result if these requirements are not met.
Attach the sensor bracket to the building with a #8 galvanized screw.

OPERATION NOTES FOR MODULATING CONTROL
FOR MODEL 1160 & 1180
Table 2 below shows the way the Automatic Steam Humidifier Control
automatically adjusts the relative humidity based on the outdoor
temperature. For example, when the knob is set to “4” and the outdoor
temperature is 20°F, the conditioned space will be controlled to 35% RH.
TABLE 2: Relative Humidity Guide
As explained in the ‘Principles of Operation’ section of this manual, when
configured for modulating control, the Automatic Steam Humidifier Control
sends a 0-10V signal to the humidifier to vary the capacity of the Steam
Humidifier depending on where the measured return air relative humidity
falls relative to the set-point as well as the proportional control band. This
will result in a more precise control of relative humidity.
Dial Setting
The proportional control band can be set to 6%, 9%, 12%, or 15% RH. The
factory-setting is 12%. Note that the proportional control band is centered
on the RH set-point. Refer back to Figure 1.
If the humidifier is cycling on and off too

frequently, the proportional control band
setting may need to be widened. To change,

The recommended settings on the humidistat are based on years of research
for an average building. (See ASHRAE Handbook – HVAC Systems and
Equipment, Ch. 20 – Humidifiers.) Note: these settings may not be appropriate
for every application. These settings represent a compromise between RH levels
that would be most desirable for comfort reasons and humidity levels that are
suitable for protection of the conditioned space and to avoid condensation on
windows and within walls. For example, a wintertime indoor RH of 50% may
be considered ideal for comfort, but unfortunately, it probably would result in
damage to the conditioned space. Observance of the recommended RH levels
on the humidistat, therefore, is an important safeguard. Condensation of
water on inside windows in the form of fogging or frost is an indication of too
much relative humidity. This same condensation can occur in other areas of
the conditioned space with the possibility of damage resulting.
