INTRODUCTION
G-1421-0001
The DICKEY-john ICS 2000 Ice Control System was designed to
maximize the efficiency of a spreading operation. This Control
System with its microprocessor based electronics provides total
automatic control of the spreader. Once the desired application
rate has been programmed, the system locks it in. The flow of
product varies automatically in proportion to changes in ground
speed so the application rate remains uniform. Spreading
automatically starts when the vehicle begins to move and
automatically stops when the vehicle stops.
The ICS 2000 Ice Control System consists of four major
components; a control console, a valve actuator (driver), a ground
speed sensor, and an application rate sensor. The control console
is installed in the vehicle cab within easy reach of the operator.
The valve actuator is installed on the hydraulic control valve where
it can control the speed of the conveyor motor and spinner motor.
The ground speed sensor is installed where it can sense the ground
speed of the vehicle (NOTE: There are two types of ground speed
sensors available; (1) in-line speedometer drive sensor,
(2) electronic speedometer adapter.) The application rate sensor is
installed on a rotating shaft to sense the speed of the conveyor.
The control console receives signal inputs from the ground speed
sensor and application rate sensor and compares these signals to
the programmed application rate. If the input signals do not
compare to the programmed application rate, an output from the
control console drives the hydraulic control valve in the direction
required to maintain a uniform application rate.

DISPLAY SELECT — This switch selects the quantities that are
read out on the display. When spreading, the selectable
readouts are RATE (application rate), SPEED, DISTANCE
SPREAD, and QUANTITY SPREAD. If more than one
material type (SALT, SAND, MIX A or MIX B) is to be
spread, the DISPLAY SELECT switch also selects the change
material pointer function.
CHANGE RATE ( $ , $ SWITCHES) — The y and $ switches are
used to change the application rate by the amount, as
programmed, in the direction indicated by the switch arrow.
In the Change Material Pointer Function, the $ and 4#
switches are used to move the pointer up or down consistent
with the arrow direction.
SPREADER CONTROL Switch — Three position switch.
OFF Position — Shuts spreader and spinner off.
AUTOMATIC Position — Provides automatic spreading
control based on vehicle ground speed.
UNLOAD Position — Provides a command that causes the
Feed Mechanism to run at maximum speed.
BLAST Switch — Provides a command that causes the spreader to
run at the programmed BLAST application rate.
SPREAD WIDTH Knob — This knob adjusts the spinner speed.
POWER Switch — Applies battery power to the control system.

Set the SPREADER CONTROL switch to OFF,
POWER ON/OFF switch to ON (rear of console).
Check material pointer position. If not in correct
position refer to MATERIAL POINTER POSITIONING
on page 7.
Set application rate using the CHANGE RATE (4, 4)
touch switches. To increase the programmed application
rate use the $ switch, to decrease the programmed
application rate use the § switch.
Start vehicle engine, engage PTO and bank valve section
lever (if applicable). Drive to start of spread route.
To begin spreading, set the SPREADER CONTROL
switch to AUTOMATIC. And if necessary set SPREAD
WIDTH knob to desired spinner speed. Spreader and
spinner will begin operation when vehicle moves and
will stop when vehicle stops. To stop spreading set the
SPREADER CONTROL switch to OFF.
You may select the desired display readout using the
DISPLAY SELECT touch switch. The pointer at the top
of the display points to the name of the function
displayed: RATE, SPEED, DISTANCE, or QUANTITY.

Pushing the BLAST switch forces the spreader to operate at the
programmed blast application rate. Blast is active for both
stationary and moving vehicle conditions. It is active only while
the switch Is held on. |
NOTE: Spot spreading can be accomplished by using the
AUTOMATIC MODE (Automatic Application Rate) or by
using the BLAST MODE (BLAST Application Rate).

Holding the SPREADER CONTROL switch in UNLOAD causes
the spreader to run at full capacity. This mode can be accessed by
holding the SPREADER CONTROL switch in the UNLOAD
position when the vehicle is stopped. NOTE: The UNLOAD
MODE cannot be accessed when the vehicle is moving. The
message UnLOAd will appear on the display and flash for
3 seconds after which the display stops flashing and the
SPREADER CONTROL switch can be released.
The UNLOAD function can be turned off by setting the
SPREADER CONTROL switch to OFF. Also if ground speed is
greater than 5 MPH (kph) for 10 seconds the control system will
return to the AUTOMATIC mode.
The SPREAD WIDTH control is used to set the speed of the
spinners. | :

Step 1. Vehicle must be stopped with the SPREADER
CONTROL switch in the OFF position.
Step 2. Use the DISPLAY SELECT touch switch to select
Material Pointer Position. Note that each time you press
the DISPLAY SELECT touch switch, the display
pointer moves to the right. Continue pressing the
DISPLAY SELECT touch switch until the display looks
like the above illustration. NOTE: The only thing on the
display will be a “flashing” Material Pointer.
Step 3. Use the CHANGE RATE ( 4 , $ ) touch switches to
position the Material Pointer to the material you will be
spreading.
When the Material Pointer is properly positioned, press
the DISPLAY SELECT touch switch, you are now
ready to begin automatic spreading. NOTE: When the
console receives ground speed or the SPREADER
CONTROL is set to AUTOMATIC the display will go to
the RATE position.

APr.Err (Application Rate Error) — This message is displayed in all
operate modes when the spreader is at full capacity (valve has
opened fully and the system can no longer regulate to the
target application rate). The message is displayed for
2 seconds out of every 6 seconds and is accompanied by the
audible alarm.
If this condition exists, slow vehicle down until the display
and alarm conditions no longer occur.
IMPORTANT — If slowing down does not help, there could
be a hydraulic system malfunction.

SPREADER CONTROL
D-1421-0009
The Control System has an automatic override function which
occurs in the event of a loss of the feedback sensor signal. Under
this condition, the Control System reverts automatically from
closed loop to open loop operation. This allows you to continue
spreading until the condition is corrected.
IF “MANUAL” begins to flash on the display: Check to see if the
conveyor/auger is still running.
1. Ifconveyor/auger appears to be operating normally:
a. Continue spreading.
b. Report the display to the mechanic after the route
is completed.
2. If conveyor/auger is not running:
a. Check to make sure PTO is engaged.
b. Turn SPREADER CONTROL to “OFF”.
с. Check for jammed conveyor/auger.
d. Check for hydraulic system failure.
