It will showing the Main incorrectly record the material dumped to storm totals if Spreader in "Auto" mode truck is moving. and in "Pause" c. Rates in manual mode are 0‐100% speed/rate only i. There is no automatic feed rate increase in ground speed ii. Precise material delivery per mile is not available iii. Spinner lane mode is unavailable 3. Unload Mode a. Unload mode has identical functionality as Manual Mode except it does not write material data into logs. Use “unload mode” instead of manual mode to unload the vehicle at the yard. This will keep the Storm and Annual Totals from being mistakenly recorded; generating false Granular and Liquid spread data. Certified Power Inc. Page 9 Freedom XDS Operator’s Manual: SG07230040 b. The controller limits the vehicle speed while unloading to less than 5 mph or the controller will default back into Auto mode/pause. 4. Automatic Mode a. Auto mode provides the most accurate material delivery. b. Ground speed is tracked to increase and decrease the material feed rate as necessary to place the set amount of material per lane mile. c. Selected liquid will also follow ground speed d. If lane mode is enabled as the spinner lanes are increased the material feed rate is increased to distribute the same amount of material on the second lane as was being spread on the first lane. See section on setting rates for more details. SelectingaSpreader(DualSpreaderOperation) 1. Dual spreader operation is identical to operating a single spreader with the exception of the ability to select and control both spreaders together or independently 2. By pressing the “Spreader” button the unit will toggle through 3 modes of operation a. Main Spreader Only b. Second Spreader Only c. Both Spreaders 3. When a spreader or function is selected you will be able to tell because there will be a green highlight box around the currently active selections 4. If only one spreader is selected using the controls of the operator panel will only adjust its values. 5. If both are selected it will adjust both values a. If one spreader was adjusted then control is switched spreader rates may not match b. If one control is paused and the other is running Figure 3: The images above show the main auger selected only, the tow spreader only i. If the pause button is pressed it will put both and both spreaders selected in order spreaders in pause ii. The second press of pause will bring both spreaders out of pause. SelectingaMaterial

In auto mode turning the knob clockwise will increase the rate to the next higher increment step. Turning the knob counter clockwise decreases the rate to the next lower increment step. The increment steps are adjustable and are pre determined by a supervisor during setup. In manual mode the same adjustment applies only it will increase or decrease the percent of available trim/speed from 0‐100% in 5% increments. Figure 5: Encoder operation SettingSpinnerRate
1. Using Percent % mode spinner. a. The spinner speed is adjustable and controlled from 0‐100% in 5% increments. b. The feeder operates independently of the Spinner: Granular feed rate is NOT ADJUSTED for changes in the spinner lane width. c. Turning the spinner knob clockwise increases the spread pattern, turning the spinner knob counterclockwise decreases the spread pattern. 2. Using Lane mode Spinner. a. LANE CONTROL SPINNER: Lanes Figure 6: Percent mode spinner operation have been pre‐calibrated for you. You simply choose 0‐1‐2‐3 or 4 lanes. (Max number of lanes is set by your systems supervisor during setup). Note: If 0 lanes are selected the feeder will not run. Certified Power Inc. Page 11 Freedom XDS Operator’s Manual: SG07230040 b. The Feeder is controlled by the spinner in ‘LANE’ mode: Granular feed Lbs./LnM (Pounds per Lane‐Mile) is automatically adjusted for your selected lane width to maintain uniform Figure 7: Lane mode spinner operation coverage for your set granular rate. c. Turning the spinner knob clockwise increases the lanes being spread, turning the spinner knob counterclockwise decreases the lanes. d. The number of lanes being spread will be shown in the Figure 8: Lane control middle of the lane gauge. spinner panel 3. When in Lane or Percentage mode and not in pause the spinner may be active! The spinner may not stop with ground speed if the administrator has selected this option in system setup. UsingaZeroVelocitySpinner(ZV) 1. You must have a Zero Velocity Spinner installed and calibrated to use Zero‐Velocity mode. 2. Basic theory of operation : a. Material being distributed to the road surface is accelerated at a speed equal to the current vehicle speed in Miles Per hour or [Kilometer per hour metric mode] but, in opposite direction to which the vehicle is traveling, therefore canceling material velocity in relation to the road surface. b. This allows the material to drop at essentially 0 MPH to help eliminate material bounce therefore it’s possible to place material in an exact location such as on the crown of the road reducing the amount of wasted material that scatters to areas of little usefulness. 3. Operating Zero velocity in AUTOMATIC MODE a. The ZV Spinner speed is automatically controlled based on Vehicle MPH. a. Operators shouldn’t have to adjust spinner speed unless environmental factors, chute angle or other unusual conditions require adjustment. b. The Operator has the ability to increase or decrease spinner speed in relation to the speed of the vehicle. Certified Power Inc. Page 12 Freedom XDS Operator’s Manual: SG07230040 4.

The operator will have to determine spinner setting by eye UsingaMaterialPositioningSpinner
1. You must have a material positioning spinner installed and calibrated on your truck to use the functions of a material positioning spinner 2. The spinner bar graph will be slightly different in material positing mode than in standard mode. It will not fill up the entire bar graph even at max rate 3. The graph will grow and shrink normally with increases and decreases in rate 4. The graph will also move from right, to center to left Figure 10: The image on the left shows the directional showing how the spinner is currently positioned in spinner centered. The image on the right shows the directional spinner angled almost completely to the the back of the truck right side of the truck. 5. There will be a switch or similar device mounted in the control console of the system to angle the spinner UsingaSwensonPPSG2DirectionalSpinner
1. You must have a Swenson PPS G2 directional spinner installed and calibrated on your truck to use the functions of this type of material positioning spinner 2. The Spinner bar graph will work the same as standard lane and percent modes 3. Spinner speed will be controlled via the operator panel as with a standard spinner 4. There will be an additional box on the screen that shows the spread pattern/spinner drop zone in a graphical manner Figure 11: Swenson PPS G2 control showing the 5. At all times the control will tell you what automatic spinner in the preprogrammed "Left" spread spread pattern the control is currently in or if it is in position. Note the Manual positioning arrows manual mode. above the spread depiction and the Automatic positions shown to the left and right. 6. Auto Mode a.

Pressing the 4 directional arrows will move the cursor on the screen giving a relative position that the salt is currently falling on the spreader disc c. When manual mode is no longer desired at any time one of the pre programmed automatic buttons can be pushed to restore Auto Mode SettingLiquidRate(Prewet&Anti‐ice)
1. Liquid rates can be changed using the “LIQUID” knob on the top center of the operator panel 2. Before liquid can be set it must be in focus with the yellow box around it. This can be changed by using the “SELECT” key on the operator panel and the “SPREADER” key if there are multiple spreaders installed on the truck. 3. Pressing the “LIQUID” button while a liquid function is in focus will activate or deactive the currently selected liquid. If a liquid is OFF, it will say “OFF” in the liquid bar graph. a. Prewet is set in i. 0‐100% in manual mode ii. 0‐40 gallons/ton in automatic mode b. Anti‐ice is set in i. 0‐100% in manual mode ii. 0‐120 gallons/lane‐mile in automatic mode 4. Prewet will follow spread rate in automatic mode delivering the desired gallons of liquid per ton of material spread. 5. Liquid can be turned on and off independent of the granular rate by pressing the “LIQUID” button on the operator panel a. If the rate is displayed in grey and it says “OFF” in the bar graph the liquid is off b. If the rate is displayed in white the prewet is on UsingaCrossAuger
1. The FXDS has the ability to run a cross auger 2. There are two types of cross augers available. Automatic and Manual. Certified Power Inc. Page 14 Freedom XDS Operator’s Manual: SG07230040 a. In automatic mode the cross auger is automatically controlled by the spreader control. It is ramped proportionally with the main auger control. b. Regardless of whether the spreader is in Auto or Manual mode the automatic cross auger will track the main auger 3. In manual mode the cross auger operates manually only a. You must touch the bar graph on screen to adjust the cross auger rate b. In order to prevent jams the manual cross auger is limited to 5% trim minimum when the main auger is running ChangingGateHeight
Figure 13: Automatic auger panel. In manual cross augers the word "Manual" replaces "Auto". 1. The FXDS is equipped with multiple types of gate control 2. Gate control may not be present on your equipment 3. Manual a. Gate height is changed at the back of the truck by hand b. The driver then returns the cab and manual enters the gate height into the control by pressing the bar on the gate height screen. c. The FXDS will automatically adjust spread rates based on the new gate height d. Optionally manual gates can be equipped with a sensor so the driver only has to change the gate height and the new setting will be automatically entered into the control 4. Semi‐Automatic Figure 14: The gate height can be adjusted by touching the bar a. The gate height is either changed graph or using the arrows on screen. by hand at the back of the truck or by a pneumatic/hydraulic/electric actuator that is actuated by a switch in the cab or by using the on screen controls b. A sensor on the gate will automatically read the new gate height and change the gate height in the FXDS. c. The FXDS will automatically adjust spread rates based on the new gate height 5. Fully Automatic a. When the spreader is set in automatic mode the FXDS is in 100% control of the gate height b. Based on current spread rate and vehicle speed the gate will adjust to an optimum height to spread material. c. No user interaction is required with this type of gate d. If the spreader is put in manual mode a fully automatic gate will function in Semi‐Automatic Mode Certified Power Inc. Page 15 Freedom XDS Operator’s Manual: SG07230040 UsingtheScreentoChangeSpreadRates 1. As an alternate method to changing rates via the operator panel rate changes can be made on screen 2. When making changes on screen it doesn’t matter if the control is currently selected or even active 3. Press the status bar of the control you’d like to change 4. Then in the rate adjustment window that pops up simply touch on the bar or use the up and Figure 15: The rate can be adjusted by touching the bar graph or using the arrows down arrows to set a new spread rate 5. When you press save the new spread rate will take effect 6. Do not change spread rates via the screen while the truck is moving Blast 1. Blast can be used for Feeder, Prewet, and Anti‐ice a. Blast is used to increase the amount of material over current spread rate for use in intersections and bridge decks or other places where icing is an issue. b. Ask your supervisor where and when to use Blast. c. All Blast settings are set up individually with each material by your equipment supervisor. 2. Blast types: a. ON/OFF: Press Blast to activate function. Blast runs indefinitely until Blast button is pressed again. b. MOMENTARY: Blast functions only while Blast switch is held c. TIMED: Blast will function for pre‐set time (1‐99 seconds) after the button is released. Pressing the Blast button again will stop the blast mode before the timer runs out. 3. Ground Speed Required: Blast can be configured to require ground speed for activation 4. When in Blast output goes to: a. MAX TRIM: Feeder will go to maximum speed allowed by trim settings b. MAX RATE: Maximum feeder rate in pounds per lane/mile or lbs/mile set up by your equipment supervisor for each granular material. If running “Lane mode” spinner the number of lanes is factored into the Blast output to keep a true pounds/Lane mile output. c. OTHER RATE: Any configured rate between 1‐9,999 lbs/lane mile.

Page 18 Freedom XDS Operator’s Manual: SG07230040 AppendixI:FXDSErrors
Setting not Saved, Min exceeds Max: This is a common message seen while saving trims. Usually occurs if saving a minimum trim percent that is over the maximum trim percent. Try setting max trim first then set minimum trim last. The error also appears if no feedback is being received from the closed‐loop sensor when a Save is applied. Setting not Saved, Valve open: This error message appears when saving trims and the FXDS cannot detect current flowing through the Hydraulic valve electrical circuit. Suspect a connector or broken wire between the FXDS control and Valve coil connection on the hydraulic valve. Ground Speed Error: This error appears if trying to save a “Speed Cal” and not having any groundspeed signal present at the MPH Ground Speed input. Try a different “Speed Type” and watch for the “Pulses Per minute” value to reflect a frequency indicating a good groundspeed signal at the input. Sensor Power Error: If the sensor power supply line is shorted to ground or has more than 750mA. of current draw the sensor power supply from the FXDS is being overloaded. Suspect a faulty Feeder sensor or Liquid Flow‐meter sensor. Also suspect a pinched or crushed wire, corroded connector or any fault that may cause a short to chassis ground. Feeder Rate limited: If the Feeder is running at max speed and the current target application rate is NOT being met, this error will display. Sometimes this error would be indicative of a system that has not been calibrated or has been calibrated improperly. This error also applies to Liquid, and the Spinner. This error clears itself when the target rate is being met. Feeder Rate Overrun: If the Feeder is running at its lowest speed and the current target application rate is NOT being met, this error will display. Sometimes this error would be indicative of a system that has not been calibrated or has been calibrated improperly. This error also applies to Liquid, and the Spinner. Usually this error will only display at very low sustained vehicle speeds of usually 5mph or less and low target rates. This error clears itself when the target rate is being met. Sensor fault and Feeder Override: This error occurs when the FXDS was operating in closed‐loop mode and was not receiving sensor feedback. The FXDS automatically defaults into open‐loop after this error occurs. Suspect a stalled motor or conveyor, or dry or stalled liquid pump. This could also be caused by a failed sensor or faulty harness. This error occurs for any closed‐loop function. The error condition is cleared with a power cycle. Liquid Tank Empty: The liquid tank is empty Certified Power Inc. Page 19
