Your shipment will arrive in two or three cartons. One carton holds the humidifier with the steam generator installed, the control humidistat and sensing element, two short steam hoses, hose clamps, mounting plate and lag screws, and a clear drain hose. If you have ordered a duct pressure switch or a high limit stat, these too will be in the humidifier carton. The steam dispersion tube(s) and fittings are contained in another carton ( two for the EHU 704). Two complete sets of installation instructions have been shipped with your unit. One is for the installer's use. The second is for the owner's files. Figure 4-1. EHU-701 2) CHECK LOCAL CODES Series EHU-700 humidifiers should be installed in accordance with ALL applicable building, plumbing, and electrical codes. 3) SITE SELECTION Electronic steam humidifiers must be installed in locations that allow routine inspection and accessibility for maintenance operations.

Figure 7-1 7) CONNECT DRAIN Connect to a suitable waste draining system. Use the clear drain hose provided and a 1" copper pipe (Figure 7-1), pitched 1"per foot. The drain water may be as hot as 160°F. Drain it where it will not present a hazard to personnel. An air gap to prevent backflow is required if drain water is required to be less than 140°F, use of Temp-R-Drain will be required. Fit Hose Inside 1-1/2" Pipe 1" or Larger Copper Pipe Chart 7-1. Selecting Proper Steam Dispersion Tube 8) INSTALL THE STEAM DISPERSION TUBE NOTE: Please contact factory for duct applications offering high static pressures (>4"WC). a. 1" I.D. Clear Hose Supplied with Unit Verify that the proper length and type of steam dispersion tube has been selected: See Chart 7-1 for proper dispersion tube lengths. The low capacity dispersion tube (Figure 7-2) is sloped toward the generator to allow for gravity drainage. On applications where the humidifier output capacity is greater than 40 Ibs/hr, a high capacity tube with a ½"O.D. drain tube must be used (Figure 7-3). Drain tube must have minimum 6" water seal (see Fig. 8-3). Steam Disp. Tube Model No. D-1 D-1.5 D-2 D-3 D-4 D-5 D-6 D-7 D-8 D-9 D-10 Steam Disp.

Pipe size may Figure 8-3 need to be increased to 1½" or 2" when piping runs are long or back Holes in dispersion tube to be installed pressure in duct is high, see Figure 9-2. Steam in "UP" position Outlet If piping plus duct back pressure Duct Above Outlet exceeds 4" WC, please consult factory. 6" Water Seal In addition, a short length of nominal 1½" threaded black iron pipe and a copper tube to female pipe thread adaptor must be supplied Floor by the customer for attaching the Drain EHU-701 piping to 703 or 704 tanks (Figure 8-2). A 1½" to 1¼" reducer will be required to connect the dispersion tube to the steam pipe of Models EHU-703/704 (Figure 8-5). The steam pipe must be free of kinks and sags to allow for gravity drainage of condensate. (Provide pitch of 1" per foot towards the unit.) Pipe supports may be required to accomplish this. Insulate the copper tube to minimize condensation. Figure 8-4 The preferred installation of the dispersion tube is above the humidifier with a maximum piping run of 20 feet or less (Figure 8-3). Figure 8-4 shows the correct installation when: 1) You cannot achieve a 1" per foot reverse slope of the piping. 2) Piping runs range from 20 to the maximum of 40 feet of equivalent run. 3) Elbows or vertical risers must be placed in the piping. 4) The steam dispersion tube MUST BE below the humidifier. For this installation use a 1¼" copper tee for the drain connection of an EHU-701 or a 1½" copper tee for EHU-703 or 704 (Figure 8-5). Figure 8-5 1-1/2" to 1-1/4" Copper Reducer if Needed 1-1/2" I.D.

Copper Tubing 8 CONTROL WIRING NOTE: Wiring to the low-voltage controls should not run in the same conduits as the power supply wiring because faulty signals could result. The use of either a metal conduit or shielded wire is required for all the control and / or safety wiring. When using metal conduit, the conduit must extend the entire length of the wire, and the conduit must be grounded at the humidifier cabinet. If the conduit does not extend the entire length of the control wire, the wiring must be shielded and the following guidelines must be used: 1. The wire shields and all unused conductors must be grounded externally to the humidifier cabinet. 2. Ensure a good connection between the shields / conductors and the metal bar of the humidifier cabinet. Additionally, a supplied ferrite core must be installed around the control wiring between where the wire enters the humidifier cabinet and the low voltage terminal block. 9) CONTROL HUMIDISTAT The Series EHU-700 is capable of accepting controls signals with the following characteristics: a.

Often, the best location is beside a thermostat that controls temperature in the same space that is to be humidified, if that location meets the following criteria: • The control humidistat should be located where it will be exposed to the average air condition of the space to be humidified. • Avoid areas of restricted air circulation, or locations where the sensor will be subjected to air drafts, localized heat, or moisture sources. • Locations near coffee machines, computer blower outlets, doors to other rooms, or windows that can be opened are not suitable. 10 Figure 11-1 On-Off Humidistat Switch Opens on RH Rise 1.9 - 3.9 Vdc Voltage Source Ground Stat In N/C 17 2 1 20 Black White Green Part No. C1471 or C1472 Voltage Source Ground Stat In N/C 17 2 1 20 Brown Orange Part No. A8581 or A8581A Set BJ4 Stat Input Selector to 1.9 - 3.9 Vdc Set BJ5 Voltage Source to 12 Vac Set BJ4 Stat Input Selector to On/Off Set BJ5 Voltage Source to +5 Vdc 4-20 mA & 0-10 Vdc Setting* 0-135 Ω Ohm Potentiometer Voltage Source Ground Stat In N/C 17 2 1 20 Voltage Source Ground Stat In N/C + Set BJ4 Stat Input Selector to 0-10 Vdc or 4-20 mA 17 2 1 20 Part No. A6707A or A18611 Humidity Increase Set BJ4 Stat Input Selector to 0-135 Ohm Set BJ5 Voltage Source to +5 Vdc *See Figure 10-1 for Armstrong 0-10 Vdc Humidistat Connections Duct Mounted Control Humidistat: Duct-mounted control humidistats are also available for installation where sensing and control of return air or exhaust air ducts is preferable. (Figure 10-1) Please refer to manufacturer's recommendations for further information on the location, mounting, and operation of the various control humidistats. 10) HIGH LIMIT DUCT HUMIDISTAT Remove the jumpers tab from terminals 10 & 14 and wire the high limit stat between these terminals. Refer to Figure 10-1 and Figure 11-1 (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. Alternately, a modulation high limit humidistat may be used on applications such as variable air volume (VAV). Locate the high limit humidistat approximately 10' (3m) downstream of the dispersion manifold. If 10' (3m) is not available, consult the factory. 11) AIRFLOW 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 tabs between terminals 9 & 15 and wire the airflow sensor between these terminals. See Figure 11-1 and Figure 12-1 (the overall wiring diagram) for more information. Complete installation and wiring instructions are contained in the duct pressure switch package.

Leaving the display in the diagnostic mode for 10 seconds initiates the input/output diagnostic routine (see Diagnostics pg. 20). The 3 digit display also exhibits a diagnostic code in the event that the unit has shut down automatically. TANK ON/OFF DRAIN ON/OFF FILL LIGHT Indicates when the fill valve is energized to add water to the steam generator. DRAIN LIGHT Indicates when the drain valve is energized to drain water from the steam generator. HIGH WATER LIGHT Indicates that the water level in the generator has risen to the high water level. TANK OFF LIGHT TANK ON/OFF MANUAL DRAIN BUTTON Indicates when power to the generator has been interrupted (tank contactor open). Depressing the tank on/off button for ½ second will open the tank contactor. The tank off light and the diagnostic light will be on and the display will show the message CO8. The unit will stay in this mode until the button is pressed again. Depressing the manual drain button for ½ second will open the drain valve. The tank will continue to drain until the button is pressed again. 13 START-UP PROCEDURE FOR ARMSTRONG SERIES EHU-700 HUMIDIFIERS The following steps should be performed on all newly installed Series EHU-700 Humidifiers to ensure that the humidifier and the entire humidification system functions correctly. BEFORE TURNING ON THE POWER Figure 14-1 1) Examine the wiring and the components in the electrical compartment. 2) Check for any loose wires or quickconnect terminals that may have been pulled loose. 3) Using a screwdriver, TIGHTEN ALL SCREW TERMINALS on the power supply terminal block, ground lug, and contactor (Figure 14-1). Current Transformers Make sure all steam generator tank connections are tight. Remember, a loose joint is a HOT joint and could be a fire hazard! 4) Locate the low voltage terminal block (Figure 14-1). Contactors Power Supply Terminal Block Verify that an airflow switch is connected between terminals 9 and 15 or that there is a jumper installed. If an airflow switch is installed, ensure that there is airflow. Verify that a high limit stat is connected between terminals 10 and 14 or that a jumper is installed. 5) Turn on the water supply - Check for leaks. Low Voltage Terminal Block TURN ON POWER AT THE CIRCUIT BREAKER 6) The following should happen: a) The Demand Mode and Tank Off lights will be illuminated. The stat demand will be displayed. b) If the stat demand displayed is greater than 35%, the Tank Off light will go out and a few seconds later the Fill Light will go on. The unit will begin to fill. 14 If the stat demand display is greater than 35% and the unit does not begin filling, press the mode select button three times and the diagnostic mode indicator will light. Note the diagnostic message and refer to the diagnostics information in the troubleshooting section of this manual (page 20). c) If the stat demand is less than 35%, force a 100% humidity demand by setting humidistat dial to 95% RH. Alternately, a 100% demand can be simulated by setting BJ4 jumper to position 3-4 (on/off), set BJ5 to position 1+2 (5 VDC) and installing a jumper between terminals 17+1 of the low voltage terminal block inside humidifier. 7) Let the unit continue to fill and allow the water to boil. a) If the water level reaches within 4" of the Steam Generator Tank top, the High Water Float Switch will block the fill and illuminate the High Water light momentarily. This is normal on relatively pure water. Pressing the mode button to check the diagnostic display will result in an indication of C01. To complete the start-up testing in this instance, push the Drain switch to drain 1/2 of the tank. Next, turn off power at the breaker or safety switch and add one pinch (1/2 teaspoon) of Epsom salts to the Fill Cup (See Part #25 on Page 28). This should allow the water to boil by increasing the water's conductivity. (See "Water Quality and Treatment for EHU Humidifiers" in the troubleshooting section on page 23.) Reapply power to energize the humidifier. 8) On typical beginning fill, after the fill stops, press the mode button until percentage of maximum power is indicated. The numerical display should read a few points above 40%. 9) Press the Drain switch. Verify that the unit is draining freely. 10) Inspect the steam outlet piping. Verify that there are no un-trapped low spots. Also verify that the piping is insulated and properly sloped (See Step 8 on Page 7). 11) If the Dispersion Tube is equipped with a drain fitting, verify that is working. 12) Verify operation of high limit humidistat and or air proving switch, if used. a) If high limit is used, turn dial to minimum setting, 10%. Display of unit should read CO4 and unit should stop steam production. Turn humidistat dial to maximum of 90% and unit should return to normal operation. b) If pressure switch is being used, verify airflow condition in duct or air handler. - If air flow is present, unit should be in normal operation. Disconnect wire from terminal 15 at humidifier. Display should show CO3, and unit will stop operation. Reconnect wire to terminal 15, and unit should return to normal operation. - If Air Flow is not present in Duct or Air Handler, unit should be sitting IDLE and Display should be showing CO3. Turn fan on and verify duct or Air handler now has airflow present. Unit should return to normal operation. 13) While humidification is being demanded, turn humidistat dial down to near zero. The following should happen: a) The stat demand reading will decrease to zero. b) The unit will shut down, lighting the Tank Off light. 14) Turn humidistat dial to the desired value. 15 15) Verify that all of the input/output circuits are functioning properly by entering the input/output diagnostics mode. Press the mode button until the diagnostics indicator lights and wait ten seconds. The unit will do a complete self-diagnostic check. See CO in the diagnostics section of this manual (page 20) for more information. 16) Turn power off, if humidification is not needed. 17) Close and lock the doors, and store the key away from the unit. 16 TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE CAUTION!: Disconnect the electric power supply at the circuit breaker or switch whenever the unit is to be inspected or serviced. DO NOT USE THE TANK ON/OFF SWITCH ON THE HUMIDIFIER BECAUSE THIS SWITCH DISCONNECTS THE STEAM GENERATOR TANK ONLY. PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION - AN OVERVIEW The Armstrong Series EHU-700 electronic steam humidifier converts ordinary tap water to steam and distributes it within the air being humidified to bring the relative humidity up to the desired level. The humidity demand is sensed by the humidistat. A microcontroller converts this demand signal into an amperage requirement. If humidistat demand is above 35%, the internal power contactor closes, applying voltage to the electrodes, and the fill valve opens to begin filling the tank. Water enters the bottom of the steam generator tank and rises until it reaches the electrodes. Upon contact, electrical current flows through the water, causing it to boil and produce steam (Figure 17-1). As the water level rises (Figure 17-2) increased electrical current flows through the water, producing more steam. This increase will continue until the desired current level (i.e. required steam output) is reached. At this point, the fill valves will cycle off and on to maintain the desired amperage ±5%. The desired current level is a function of the nominal current rating, humidistat demand, and the automatic capacity adjustment feature. When the humidistat senses the added moisture in the air, the demand for humidity begins to drop. As the demand drops, the output of the unit is modulated down by boiling away water and not filling. This allows the amperage to decrease, thereby reducing the steam flow. The fill valve can then cycle at the lower steam output (current) requirement. When the humidistat demand signal drops below a minimum 25% demand, the contactor is de-energized, and steam output stops (Figure 17-3). Steam output may also be stopped by a duct high-limit humidistat or a fan interlock switch. These devices prevent excess moisture and condensation in the duct by opening the tank contactor if there is too much humidity or insufficient airflow within the duct.

When the high water limit is reached the HIGH WATER light comes on and the fill valve is blocked until some water is boiled away and the water level drops. This is common during startup. If the high water light comes on and the water level is in the lower half of the steam generator, contact the factory for assistance. This is due to high static pressure. Installation of fill cup extension kit could be required. If an overcurrent situation is detected, the overcurrent protection circuit will drain water from the tank to reduce current flow. If the overcurrent persists, the contactor will be de-energized to stop all current flow. The Series EHU-700 patented automatic capacity adjustment feature eliminates manual adjustment and improves humidity control. This feature automatically adjusts maximum output up or down depending on the humidity demand history. When the unit is first turned on the maximum output is 40%. If the demand stays high, the unit automatically steps up the maximum output and will reach 100% maximum output after one hour. For test purposes, or for special operating situations, this feature can be easily over-ridden by changing the position of jumper BJ1 on the printed circuit board from pins 1 and 2 to pins 2 and 3. An automatic drain cycle blows down mineral-laden water to increase steam generator life and reduce maintenance requirements. The frequency and duration of the drain cycle will vary with supply water conductivity, steam output, and humidistat demand history. When it is initiated automatically, the drain valve cycle occurs at the beginning of a fill cycle. The incoming cold water tempers the drain water to less than 160ºF after 72 hours of no demand, the unit will initiate an "End-of-Season" drain to remove stagnant water. OPERATIONAL GUIDELINES This section describes the conditions and indications you should expect to find in a normally operating humidifier. Tank Contactor Operation: The microcontroller will de-energize the contactor, turning off the current to the electrodes if ANY of the following occur: 1. The control humidistat demand signal is less tan 25%. 2. The fan interlock circuit is open. 3. The high limit humidistat circuit is open. 4. The tank current is greater than the over-current limit. Conversely, the microcontroller will energize the contactor, turning on the current to the electrodes, only if ALL of the following occur: 1. The control humidistat demand signal is greater than 35%. 2. The fan interlock circuit is closed. 3. The high limit humidistat circuit is closed. There is a time delay of fifteen seconds in the contactor operating circuitry to prevent it from cycling too rapidly after it has been turned off. Monitoring Stat Demand: Indicates the demand for humidity in relationship to the control range of the humidistat. 0% indicates that the humidity requirement has been exceeded. 100% indicates that the humidistat is calling for full humidifier output. In general, a reading of around 50% indicates that the set point has been met. 18 Monitoring Current: While the unit is filling, the current should increase. As the current approaches the maximum rating of the unit, it increases more slowly, especially in higher capacity units. With the tank on, and the fill and drain circuits idle, the current should fall slowly. When the unit is draining, the current should decrease at a moderate rate. Monitoring % Power: The percentage power equates to the percentage of maximum steam output. The percentage power reading will increase and decrease proportionally to the current draw. Overcurrent protection circuitry starts initiating drain cycles as the % power reading approaches 110%. The overcurrent failure routine is initiated at about 120%. Automatic Drain Operation: The microcontroller will energize the drain valve at the beginning of the fill cycle to reduce the conductivity and mineral build-up in the tank. It will vary in drain duration to adjust for changes in water quality, demand history, and steam output. Manual Drain Mode: If the manual drain button is pushed while the tank circuit is energized, the fill valve will also open to temper the drain water. If the tank is off, only the drain valve will open. 19 EHU-700 DIAGNOSTICS THE Series EHU-700 has built in diagnostics to detect system problems early, before they become severe. If possible, the diagnostic routine performs corrective measures. If necessary, the unit is shutdown and a dry contact is closed to enable a remote alarm. The diagnostic messages that result in the unit being shutdown are displayed automatically. The other messages are displayed when the diagnostic display mode is selected with the mode switch. If the display mode selection is left in the diagnostic mode for 10 seconds, the Input/Output circuit diagnostic check will begin. DIAGNOSTIC DISPLAY MESSAGES C00 = NORMAL OPERATION C01 = HIGH WATER C02 = TANK NEEDS CLEANING* C03 = INTERLOCK CIRCUIT C04 = HIGH-LIMIT CIRCUIT C05 = DRAIN SYSTEM FAILURE* C06 = FILL SYSTEM FAILURE* C07 = OVERCURRENT FAILURE* C08 = MANUAL TANK SHUT-OFF C09 = I/O DIAGNOSTICS * Automatic shutdown and Alarm contact closure. C00: NORMAL OPERATION C01: HIGH WATER: A high-water float switch prevents water carry-over into the duct due to too high a water level in the tank. When the high water limit is reached the HIGH WATER light comes on and the fill valve is blocked until some water is boiled away and the water level drops. This is not uncommon on startup. The diagnostic display mode will indicate C01. NOTE: the high water light goes off as soon as the high water condition is cleared but the operation on the fill valve does not resume until after a fifteen second delay period. If C01 is displayed and the water level is in the lower half of the steam generator, high static pressure exists, contact the factory for assistance. C02: TANK NEEDS CLEANING: If the HIGH WATER lights is on continuously during normal service (i.e. after initial startup) and the current is not increasing, the tank probably needs cleaning (refer to the maintenance section of this manual). If this condition persists without being serviced, the display panel will display diagnostic message C02. The unit will shutdown and the dry contact will close to activate the remote alarm. NOTE: False C02 messages may occur if incoming water is very pure (< 100 μMhos/cm²). Please consult factory. C03: INTERLOCK CIRCUIT: The fan interlock circuit may be a sail switch or (preferably) a duct pressure switch. When air flow in the duct is not present, the interlock circuit should open and the microcontroller will de-energize the contactor. The diagnostic mode will display the message C03 and the fill solenoid is blocked. 20 C04: HIGH LIMIT CIRCUIT: When the humidity in the duct reaches the high limit stat set-point, the circuit will open and the microcontroller will de-energize the contactor. The diagnostic mode will display the message C04 and the fill solenoid is blocked. C05: DRAIN SYSTEM FAILURE: This routine checks for a failure to reduce current if the drain valve is energized for more than five seconds. If the actual current does not decrease when the microcontroller demands a drain cycle, the unit will go into a diagnostic routine. This routine will try twice to correct the drain system failure by cycling the drain valve rapidly. If the failure is not corrected, the unit will shut down. The tank off indicator will light, the numerical display will show C05 (the drain valve failure message), and the dry contact will close to activate the remote alarm. Drain system failure can be due to a plugged drain valve, drain valve solenoid failure, scale buildup in the tank, or drain piping problems. Refer to the maintenance section of this manual for resolution of these problems. C06: FILL SYSTEM FAILURE: After start-up, if the fill valve is on and has been on for more than four minutes, the diagnostic routine will check the fill valve operation. If the actual amp signal is less than the current when the fill valve was opened, the unit will go into a diagnostic routine. If the problem cannot be corrected, a fill system failure will be triggered and the unit shut down. The three digit display will show C06 to indicate this condition, and the dry contact will close to activate the remote alarm. Fill system failure can be due to excessive or insufficient inlet water pressure, a failed fill valve solenoid, a plugged fill valve failed open, or a backflow preventer. Refer to the maintenance section of this manual for resolution of these problems. C07: OVERCURRENT FAILURE: The overcurrent limit (OCL) is 20% above the nominal amp rating of the unit. When the actual current reaches the OCL, the microcontroller will de-energize the contactor and energize the drain valve for 15 seconds. Then the contactor will be re-energized to see if the drain valve has corrected the overcurrent condition. This procedure is repeated 5 times. If the overcurrent still exists, an overcurrent failure indication of C07 is displayed, the unit is shut down, and the dry contact will close to activate the remote alarm. The unit will have to be manually reset and the overcurrent condition addressed by the maintenance personnel. An overcurrent failure can result from the cold startup of a tank that was previously running at a high load, resulting in the tank water becoming too conductive for start-up. If this is suspected, manually drain the tank for 15-30 seconds, then try to restart the system. If the overcurrent failure repeats, the drain system could be partially plugged, or the tank may be in need of cleaning. Refer to the maintenance section of this manual for resolutions to these problems. C08: MANUAL TANK SHUT-OFF: The tank on/off button will de-energize the tank contactor. The tank off light and the diagnostics indicator will be on and the display will show the message C08. The unit will stay in this condition until the button is pressed again. In the tank off mode, the manual drain button is still active, but the mode select button is not. 21 C09: I/O DIAGNOSTICS If the display mode selection is left in the diagnostic mode for 10 seconds, the Input/Output circuit diagnostic check will begin. The display will show the message C09, the tank will be off, and the diagnostics mode light will remain on. Output Circuits: The diagnostics will first check all the output circuits: fill valve, drain valve, and tank contactor to make sure they are working. When a light comes on, you will hear the corresponding valve or contactor circuit energize for about 2 seconds. Each circuit is checked twice before proceeding to the next circuit. Input Circuits: Next the microcontroller checks the status of all input circuits, beginning with the control stat. the 3 digit display will show 0% Demand, then the actual stat demand. It will do this twice. The input diagnostics continues by checking the fan interlock switch, high limit duct humidistat, and high water switch. The display will now show C09 followed by any additional messages that indicate problems with the input circuits. When the I/O diagnostic check is finished, the demand mode light will be on, the display will show the control stat demand and the unit will return to normal operation. The complete I/O diagnostic check lasts less than 2 minutes. 22 WATER QUALITY AND TREATMENT FOR EHU SERIES HUMIDIFIERS GENERAL Series EHU 700 electronic humidifiers use ordinary tap water in their operation. The quality of this water affects both the operation and the maintenance of the humidifier. How the EHU works: The EHU is an electrode boiler. When no water is present, the electrodes are separated by air, an insulator, so no current flows. When tap water contacts the electrodes it conducts current between the electrodes, heating the water. How much current passes between the electrodes is dependent on the conductivity of the water, which is measured in micromhos/cm (μMhos/cm). EHUs can operate effectively with water conductivity in the range of 50 (low) to 800 (high) μMhos. For conductivity greater than 800 μMhos, please consult factory. The optimum incoming water conductivity level is 200-400 μMhos/cm. the greater the conductivity of the water, the lower its level will be in the tank in order to draw a given current. In general, the EHU700 Series will adjust its drain cycle to maintain the water level around 1/3-1/2 full in the tank. What affects conductivity? The minerals (mainly calcium) dissolved in the water. Pure water is NOT conductive and can't be used exclusively in an EHU without special procedures. This includes distilled, de-ionized and reverse osmosis diffusion treated water. Most tap water is conductive however, so it will work in an EHU. If tap water is not available, consult with the factory. How does this affect maintenance? Generally, the more conductive the water is, the more minerals there are dissolved or suspended in it. As the water is boiled away these minerals can be left as a deposit on the electrodes, tank, and fittings. Any deposits that build up can block valves, diminish the internal volume of the tank, and form an insulating barrier on the electrodes (Figure 23-1). Figure 23-1. Tank filled with mineral buildup. The EHU automatic drain cycle: All Series EHU humidifiers have a built in blow down circuit to intermittently purge excess mineral accumulations from the water. The drain cycle should automatically adjust for variations in water quality. Eventually, however, minerals will accumulate in the steam generator, and have to be removed (see tank cleaning in the maintenance section of this manual). Water treatment guidelines for the EHU: Generally, the EHU will work with any potable water source. If you are experiencing problems with your installation, however, the following suggestions may be helpful in identifying and rectifying your difficulty. WHEN WATER CONDUCTIVITY IS TOO LOW Indicators: -Unable to reach humidity set point in space. -High water level in tank -Low current draw and low % power reading even though the stat demand remains at 100%. -Consistent drain cycles of two seconds or less. 23 Results: -Excessive time needed to reach set point during star-up. -Poor humidity control. Remedy: -Add 1/2 teaspoon of Epsom salts to the fill cup. After start-up the automatic drain program should maintain the unit at full capacity. -If problem persists, contact the factory. WHEN WATER CONDUCTIVITY IS TOO HIGH Indicators: -Water level just touching tip of electrodes. -Arcing and foaming in the tank. -Frequent drain cycles (every time the fill valve opens) that last up to 10 seconds. Results: -Tank frequently needs cleaning. -Poor control because of excessively low water level. -Electrode destruction. Remedies: -If you have pure water available such as: de-ionized water, Reverse Osmosis diffusion water, or distilled water, they can be blended with tap water to reduce the total mineral content. Pure water alone is not conductive enough to pull current. The water is too pure when the "Tank Full" light comes on excessively. Consult a water purification equipment vendor for the proper blending equipment or the Armstrong factory for more information regarding use of purified water. The blended water conductivity should be in the 200-400 μMhos/cm range. -Softened water is not recommended for use with the Series EHU-700 Humidifiers. Water softeners replace the calcium ions in the water with sodium ions. As softened water boils, the sodium ions stay in solution causing the conductivity of the water in the tank to increase rapidly. CAUTION: Soft water may increase the tank's water conductivity and does not allow a protective coating to form on electrodes. Also, as salts stay in solution more drainage will be needed to maintain correct water conductivity in the tank. Please consult factory for softened water analysis, if softened water source is available, before proceeding. Expect to replace electrodes more frequently. Discontinue service if continuous arcing or foaming occurs in the tank. 24 EHU-701, -703, -704 Series Electronic Steam Humidifier Repair Parts Steam Generators Complete Item Part No. *1A D4417 *1B D4418 *2A *2B Description 1 Ph Low Voltage 120,208,240,277 Volts Used On 701 D4415 1 Ph High Voltage w/Barrier 380,480,600 Volts 3 Ph Low Voltage (208, 240, 277 volts) 701 D4416 3 Ph High Voltage w/Barrier (380, 480, 600 volts) 701 3A D262A 3 Ph/1 Ph Low Voltage (120, 208, 240, 277 volts) 3B D262 3 Ph High Voltage w/Barrier (380, 480, 600 volts) Note: A replacement generator comes with a spare drain adaptor "O" Ring. 701 703,704 703,704 Steam Generator Parts Item Part No. Description Used On † *4A D4422 Tank Assembly Less Electrodes - 1 Phase 701 † *4B D4423 Tank Assembly Less Electrodes - 3 Phase 701 †6 D263 Steam Generator Bottom Half-Less Drain Screen 703,704 †6 B3968 Steam Generator Top Half- Holes Drilled 703,704 *7A B3038 Electrode Replacement Assembly 1 Ph High & Low Voltage 701 *7B A10077 Electrode Replacement Assembly 3 Ph 701 A9745 Electrode Replacement Set (Includes 6 ea. electrodes, O-Rings, 1/4" Nut & 1/2" Nut) 1 Ph/3 Ph 8 703,704 *9A A9742 Drain Screen for Low Voltage (120, 208, 240, 277) 701 *9B B2413D Drain Screen/Barrier Assembly For High Voltage 1 Ph 701 *9C C1965 Drain Screen/Barrier Assembly For High Voltage 3 Ph 10 C2053 Drain Screen 703,704 11 A9746 Tank Barrier Assembly 703,704 12A A21374 O-Ring for Steam Generator 701 12B A21375 O-Ring for Steam Generator 703,704 *13 C1839 V Band Tank Clamp 14 B2822 Tank Retainer Clip 701 701 703,704 *Item Not Shown. † These parts are furnished as a convenience to our customers.

Be sure unit is draining freely by pushing the manual drain button (the manual tank off button should not be depressed). 1 MONTH TO 1 YEAR 1) Repeat the 5 steps outlined above. 2) Clean, repair, or replace steam generator. STEAM GENERATOR MAINTENANCE General: The steam generator is basically the only part of the EHU that requires regular maintenance. This maintenance may include cleaning or replacing the tank itself or the electrodes. We recommend substituting a spare generator in order to minimize downtime and labor requirements. The replaced generator may then be serviced when it is convenient. Tank Cleaning: As the water in the steam generator boils away, the minerals in that water come out of suspension and are deposited on the walls of the tank and on the electrodes. This process leaves the tank walls coated with a white or light brown colored mineral buildup. This buildup may be anywhere from soft and chalky to rock hard. The automatic drain cycle will minimize mineral buildup but, eventually, the tank will need cleaning. Tank cleaning is indicated when: a) The unit has been in service for a period of time, a solids buildup is visible through the tank walls, and the "normal" water level in the tank is rising, or; b) The tank cleaning message (C02) is displayed. TO CLEAN THE TANK, PLEASE REFER TO THE "TANK REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT" AND THE "STEAM GENERATOR CHEMICAL CLEANING PROCESS" SECTIONS OF THIS MANUAL. (PAGE 30) Tank Replacement: Tank replacement is indicated if the tank body becomes deformed in any way, as this could cause leakage around the o-ring. TO REPLACE THE TANK, PLEASE REFER TO THE "TANK REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT" SECTION OF THIS MANUAL. (Page 30) Electrode Replacement: Electrode disintegration generally starts due to high conductivity water being present in the steam generator. Electrode disintegration sometimes occurs as a result of a combination of the following factors: a) High voltage (especially 480 and 600 volts); b) Hard water (in excess of 20 grains/gal.); c) Any unit with a malfunctioning drain system; d) Softened water. 29 If the electrodes begin to disintegrate, the tank may turn black or red, and arcing or flashing may be visible inside the tank while it is operating. IF YOU NOTICE EXCESSIVE ARCING, SHUT THE UNIT OFF AND CALL THE FACTORY BEFORE RE-STARTING UNIT. To replace the electrodes, please refer to the "Tank Disassembly and Electrode Replacement" Section of this manual. (Page 33) RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE FOR STEAM GENERATOR TANK AND ELECTRODE REMOVAL, CLEANING, REPAIR AND REPLACEMENT TANK REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT - ALL MODELS 1) Turn steam generator tank off by pressing tank off button. 2) Drain the tank by pressing the drain button. It may take five minutes for a full tank to completely drain. 3) Once the tank is completely empty, turn off the power at the main disconnect or breaker. 4) Disconnect the steam hose from the top of the steam generator tank by loosening the hose clamp with a screwdriver or 5/16" nutdriver. BE CAREFUL! The tank may still be hot to the touch, and some steam may still be condensing in the tank. 5) Disconnect the power leads at the steam generator with a 7/16" wrench (three leads for 3-phase units, two leads for single phase). See wiring diagram, Figure 12-1, for more details. 6) Remove the tank from the cabinet by lifting it out of the drain adaptor. BE CAREFUL! The tank may still contain hot steam or condensate. 7) It is preferable that you replace the tank with a new or rebuilt unit and take the current tank to the shop for servicing. 8) Install the tank into the EHU by lowering it into the drain adaptor. A small amount of high temperature grease or silicone lubricant may be used on the drain adaptor o-ring to help it seal properly. After a couple of tank replacements the o-ring should de replaced as well. 9) Connect power leads and, on EHU-703 and 704, the loose end of the jumper wires to electrode studs using a 7/16" wrench (three leads for 3-phase units, two for single phase). Refer to the wiring diagram in your unit for specific information. 10) Connect the steam hose to the top of the steam generator with the hose clamp. 11) Check all wiring connections at the main power, contactor, and control voltage terminal blocks (Figure 14-1), as well as on the generator itself. Energize the circuit breaker or main disconnect. Refer to Start-up Section if you encounter any problems when restarting the unit. 30 STEAM GENERATOR CHEMICAL CLEANING PROCEDURE This procedure is intended as a guide only for the chemical cleaning of the generator in all EHU models. Read and follow label directions on any cleaning product. Check local codes before disposing of chemicals. Caution: Muriatic acid can cause severe chemical burns if not handled properly. Wear rubber gloves and eye protection when using. Read and follow carefully the safety procedures on the package. 1) Obtain several gallons of muriatic acid. Muriatic acid is the name for commercial hydrochloric acid. It is available in most hardware, pool chemical, or farm supply outlets. 2) Remove the tank, following the "Tank Removal" directions in this manual. 3) Let the steam generator tank cool after removal from the EHU unit. 4) Split the tank, referring to the directions on page 33 of this manual, and examine the inside of the tank and the electrodes. a. If the tank is black or dark brown, the electrodes may have disintegrated and chemical cleaning may not be effective. The tank can be cleaned with the following process, but the electrodes may need to be replaced. b. If tank and electrodes have a white/tan/grey mineral accumulations and/or the tank is partially filled with loose lime accumulations, proceed with chemical cleaning. 5) Empty any loose deposits from the bottom tank half. Both tank halves and the barrier assembly, if present, can be cleaned using a scraper, a stiff bristle brush, and water spray as required. Refer to the directions on page 33 of this manual for details on removing the drain screen for further cleaning, if necessary. 6) Remove the electrodes from the upper tank half, following the directions on page 33 of this manual. Loose and/or soft deposits should be scraped from the exterior of the electrodes before chemical cleaning. 7) Prepare the chemical cleaning solution as per manufacturer's recommendations and fill a plastic bucket to a sufficient level to soak the electrodes. Be certain not to submerge the electrodes beyond the level of the screen. 8) Let the cleaning action take place for 15 minutes. Remove the electrodes from the bucket and rinse them thoroughly with a clean water spray. 9) Observe the electrodes to determine if another treatment is necessary. 10) It is not necessary for the electrodes to be cleaned down to bare metal. Removal of major accumulations is the only requirement. 11) Helpful Hints: * Check the drain valve for proper operation & good flow when the tank is drained prior to removal. * With the tank removed, inspect the drain adaptor and hose from adaptor to drain valve to ensure that it is free from deposits which may interfere with proper drainage. 31 12) Reassemble tank. Make sure o-rings are still on electrode terminals. Also check condition of steam generator o-ring. After a couple cleanings, it will need to be replaced. Make sure o-ring is sealed in its groove and not pinched when halves are put together. Do not over-tighten nuts that hold electrodes in place. This is an o-ring seal so nuts should be "snug". 13) Re-install the steam generator tank. Check out for proper operation. 32 TANK DISASSEMBLY, CLEANING, AND ELECTRODE REPLACEMENT MODELS EHU-703 AND 704, SINGLE AND THREE PHASE 1) Using a 7/16" wrench, disconnect the jumper wires from the steam generator. 2) Remove 24 metal clips by pushing gently on top of each clip with a screwdriver while cupping the clip with the other hand. 3) Lift the top half of the tank free of the bottom half and rest it on the electrodes. Use a ¾" wrench to loosen and remove the nuts from the six electrode studs. 4) Lift the top tank half from the electrodes. Remove the o-ring from the lower tank half o-ring channel and put it aside for re-use. On high voltage units, lift the barrier assembly out of the bottom tank half. 5) Clean the tank halves and the barrier assembly (Figure 35-1), if applicable, using a scraper, stiff bristle brush, and/or water spray. Rinse the unit with clear water. If necessary, the drain screen may be removed for cleaning by removing three screws and pushing up through the bottom tank connection with a screwdriver handle or other blunt object. The drain screen snaps back into place and is SECURED BY THE 3 SCREWS after cleaning. BOTH THE BARRIER ASSEMBLY AND THE DRAIN SCREEN SHOULD BE REPLACED WITH NEW PARTS IF THEY ARE UNSERVICEABLE. 6) Install one electrode in the top tank half. Make sure the small o-ring is located at the bottom of the electrode stud. Push the electrode through one of the holes in the upper tank half. Slowly turn the electrode until it locks in place. Thread a nut, finger tight, onto the electrode stud. Repeat this process with the other five electrodes. 7) Turn the tank top half upright and rest it on the electrodes. Tighten the nuts on all the electrode studs with a ¾" wrench, so they are just snug. Figure 34-1. 8) Install the electrode jumper wires to the studs at the top of the tank. Fasten one end of the jumper wire with a washer and a 1/4" hex nut, using a 7/16" wrench. There are three jumpers on a three-phase unit, and four jumpers on a single phase unit. On a single phase unit you should have only two loose ends ( Figure 34-1). 9) Install the o-ring in the bottom tank half o-ring channel. A third hand or weight may be needed to hold one end of the o-ring in place while the other end is being installed. 10) Install the barrier assembly in the bottom tank half. 11) Lower the top tank half onto the bottom tank half. Line up the marks on the rim of the top and bottom tank halves to properly center the electrodes. 12) Look trough the top connection to make sure the o-ring is still in place. 13) Snap a metal clip over the flanges of the tank halves, midway between two alignment marks. Position another clip on the opposite side of the tank. Install all 24 clips in this manner. 33 MODEL EHU-701, SINGLE AND THREE PHASE Figure 35-1 1) Remove 24 metal clips by pushing gently on top of each clip with a screwdriver while cupping the clip with the other hand. Barrier 2) Clean the inside of the steam generator thoroughly unsing a scraper, stiff bristle brush and/or water spray and rinse with clear water. Barrier Retainer 3) High voltage units are supplied with a barrier/drain screen assembly in the lower tank half to increase tank life. Inspect the barrier/drain screen assembly and replace if necessary. 4) Place a flat washer and O-ring on each ¼" electrode stud and push the studs through the holes in the upper tank half (Figure 35-2). 5) The mounting hole on each electrode is attached to the tank top with a slotted self-tapping screw. 6) From the outside, install a flat washer and ¼" hex nut on each electrode stud. Tighten these with a 7/16" wrench so they are just snug (Figure 35-2). Drain Screen Figure 35-2 Hex Nut Washer 'O' Ring Washer FILL AND DRAIN SYSTEM REPAIR General: In the event of a "drain system failure" (C05) or a "fill system failure" (C06) indication on the three digit numerical display, perform the following steps to identify and correct the fault. Drain System Failure: Check for drain valve operation. With the unit on; press the tank on/off button, turning off the tank contactor (tank off light illuminated). Press the manual drain button. The drain light should go on and you should hear the drain valve operate with a sharp click. Repeatedly activate the manual drain button to determine if the valve is operating. 1) If the drain valve does not operate but the drain light is on, check for 24 VAC between the two leads on the drain valve (Figure 28-1, 28-2). After checking, TURN THE POWER OFF. a) If 24 VAC was NOT found, check wiring continuity to the circuit board. Repair broken wires as necessary. If wires are intact, call the factory for assistance. b) If 24 VAC WAS found, measure the coil resistance of the drain valve with the leads disconnected. The coil resistance should be 10 ohms; if it is not, replace the drain valve. 2) If the drain valves can be heard to operate but no water drains out, TURN THE POWER OFF, then: a) Check for a plugged drain valve and/or plugged drain adaptor. It is often possible to see an accumulation of solids in the inlet to the drain valve or in the neck of the steam generator. If this is the case, remove the generator and clean out the drain valve and tank drain adaptor. See tank removal section on Page 33. 34 b) While the tank is out, look into the lower end of the tank. Make sure the drain screen is in place. Also check for accumulations of lime at the bottom of the tank. Refer to "Steam Generator Disassembly" and "Cleaning Procedure" sections to rectify these problems. 3) If the tank drains well when the water level is high but poorly or not at all when it is low, check the duct pressure where the dispersion tube is mounted. A negative duct pressure can cause drainage problems. While this is relatively rare, it has been known to happen. 4) If the water backs up into the drain pan inside the unit, check for a blocked drain cup under the pan. If the drain cup is OK, check the drain piping for an accumulation of solids. Clean as required and increase the pitch of the drain piping if necessary. If long runs of horizontal drain pipe cannot be avoided, it may be necessary to develop some kind of drain flushing system. An air gap in between drain piping and drain hose from the EHU will allow "burping" of air from drain piping. Fill System Failure: Make sure the drain valve is not leaking. A leaking drain valve may appear to the humidifier as a fill system failure. Check to see that the fill valve is operating. While the fill light is on, disconnect one of the fill valve leads (Figure 28-1, 28-2), then momentarily touch the lug to the coil terminal. You should be able to hear the valve operate. 1) If the fill light is on, but the valve is not operating, check for 24 VAC between the valve lead wires. After checking, TURN OFF THE POWER. a) If 24 VAC WAS NOT found, check the continuity of the wires back to the circuit board. Repair broken wires as necessary. If wires are intact, call the factory for assistance. b) If 24 VAC WAS found, disconnect the fill valve leads and check the coil resistance. It should be 18 ohms. Replace the coil if necessary. 2) If the fill valve is operating but the unit fills too slowly, check for either low water pressure (less than 25 psi) or a partially plugged screen inside the inlet fitting. If the screen tends to plug too easily, it may well be removed and replaced by a larger filter in the water line external to the unit. (NOTE: the nominal flow rate valve should be 0.31 gal/min. for each tank. The flow rate is regulated by a flow washer in the valve inlet or on the EHU-704 by flow washers in the brass tee immediately downstream of the fill valve.) 3) If the valve makes humming or buzzing noises but fails to open: a) Check for high water pressure (over 125 psi). b) If a backflow preventer is used, crack open a fitting between the backflow preventer and the fill valve. If this causes the fill valve to open, remove the backflow preventer from the system. Backflow preventers are not needed as the Series EHU-700 incorporates a 1 inch air gap as an anti-syphon feature.

Control Output Level The A 17898 (H270) includes a high limit circuit. This allows the use of a second humidity in the supply air. Input signal goes to terminals #8 on the humidistat. High limit set point is preprogrammed at 85%. It can be readjusted using the A19517 service tool. If you don’t use the high limit feature, Ω, ¼ watt resistor between terminals 8 connect a 1 MegΩ and 10 (supplied with the humidistat). Remember: this high limit function is not a safety device. For critical situations, provide installation with normal protections required to ensure a safe operation. 00% 50% 0% 85% Supply Humidity HUMIDITY SET POINT RESET BY OUTSIDE TEMPERATURE When the outdoor temperature falls below the selected high temperature, parameter HT (32°F in the example Figure 41-2), the humidity set point will start to decrease. The lowest humidity set point will be reached at selected low temperature, parameter LT (-20°F). Figure 38-1 Outside Air Temperature The A17898 (H270) humidistat has an optional outdoor temperature sensor. This sensor is used to reset the humidity set point during the cold season to minimize condensation on windows and building structures. 32˚F HT=32˚F 14˚F -4˚F -20˚F LT= -20˚F User Setpoint -40˚F rE=20% 20% 25% 30% 35% 40% 45% %RH The set point decrease from original set point down to the lowest set point determined by the parameter rE. In the example, Figure 41-2, rE was set to 20%, therefore the humidity set point dropped from 45% to 20%. If you don’t use the outdoor reset feature, put a jumper between terminals 6 and 9 (supplied with the humidistat). 38 APPLICATION EXAMPLE Steam humidification system controlled by a 0 to 10 Vdc valve wired to output #1. Remote humidity display using 0 to 5 Vdc signal is wired to output #2. The humidity sensor is located in the return air duct. A proportional high limit humidity sensor is installed in the supply duct. An outdoor temperature sensor is installed in the fresh air duct. Humidistat model number: H270-69-13-10-31 figure 42-1.
