AQUAWORX IPC PANEL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
The Aquaworx IPC (Intelligent Pump Control) Panel
provides an innovative approach to pump control.
Designed specifically for the onsite industry, the IPC Panel
leverages simple pressure transducer technology for the
enhancement of pump system performance, and ease of
installation. Relying on an embedded microprocessor in
the pump controller and a floatless pressure transducer in
the pump chamber, the IPC Panel monitors liquid levels,
controls pumping time intervals, and logs events in real
time. Using the Mountable and Removable Controller
(MARC) as the user interface, the IPC Panel offers a costeffective solution with expanded capability.
I. General
Unpack the Aquaworx IPC Panel and check for any visible
damage both external and internal. Also verify that there
are no cracks or damage to the pressure transducer bell.
Note: You will need to identify the number on the pressure
transducer bell as it is needed during the MARC setup.
Notify Aquaworx immediately at 1-877-278-2979 if any
damage has occurred.
ALL INSTALLATIONS MUST BE COMPLETED IN
ACCORDANCE WITH ALL APPLICABLE FEDERAL,
STATE AND LOCAL CODE.
Aquaworx offers three models of the IPC Panel; Simplex,
Duplex and Sand Filter, to meet a variety of system design
requirements. The Simplex Panel has the ability to time
control a single pump, while the Duplex Panel can control
two pumps in an alternating design with independent
timing. The Sand Filter Panel has the ability to time control
two individual pumps having independent level sensors,
allowing for a design which can time-dose a treatment
system and drainfield.

1. Mount the IPC Panel to the wall or post. Position the
IPC Panel so that the power supply enters the IPC Panel
through the bottom approximately 1” to the right of the
audible alarm unit.
2. On Simplex Panels drill two holes (3 holes for duplex)
in the bottom of the enclosure spaced approximately 2”
apart and in line with the audible alarm unit. When facing
the panel, the order of conduit connections from left to
right is shown below, as well as illustrated in Figure 2:
Power in: 2 dedicated 20 amp circuits from house to
power the panel, 120V (1) and pump, 120V or 220V(2)
Power out: Power supply from panel to pump
Transducer signal wire: Signal transmission from panel

AQUAWORX IPC PANEL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
3. Power to pumps: run the panel (s) power wires from
the IPC Panel to the septic tank riser. Connect the wiring
in the splice box using water-tight connectors. Connect
pump wires to the IPC Panel by carefully following the
wiring diagram enclosed with the panel. A gas-tight seal
(see Figure 1) is required to prevent corrosive septic gases
from migrating into the IPC Panel.
4. Power to controller: wire the supply circuit to the panel.
Aquaworx recommends that the panel be wired to two
designated circuits. An external disconnect should be
incorporated into the supply circuit and mounted within
easy reach of the IPC Panel. Note: Site specific codes
have final authority on external wiring requirements.
III. Installing the Pressure Transducer
and Bell Assembly
The pressure transducer bell assembly replaces the traditional float tree assembly. The 1” PVC stand pipe may be
mounted by applying the same methods used to install a
float tree assembly.
1. Determine the position of the pressure transducer bell
assembly. The pressure transducer bell assembly must be
mounted so that it allows the liquid level to pump below
the bottom of the pressure transducer bell. This allows the
pressure transducer bell to get a fresh air bubble.
2. Feed the transducer signal wire and snorkel tube
through the 1” PVC stand pipe and glue to the pressure
transducer bell using a 1“ tee. The length of the stand
pipe when secured should position the bottom of the
pressure transducer bell above the top of the pump.
3. Cut off the snorkel tube approximately 9” lower
than the top of the stand pipe and secure it to the
transducer signal wire. The snorkel tube should be
positioned in the form of an upside-down U as high as
possible in the riser. This allows the snorkel tube to
create an air lock in the event of a flooded tank.

4) NOTE: The Z-bias value labeled on the side of the
pressure transducer bell. Later in the set-up, you will be
instructed to program the Z-bias into the IPC Panel.
5. Run the transducer signal wire back to the IPC Panel
and connect to the transducer signal wire terminal strip.
Connect Red to RD, blue to BL and black to BK (first
three positions). Make sure to leave enough cable in the
riser to allow for removal of the pressure transducer bell
assembly during maintenance. The transducer signal wire
is rated for direct burial. However, it can be run in a conduit. Site specific codes have final authority on installation
requirements.
NOTE: Do not attach the pressure transducer bell assembly to
the pump discharge pipe. Do not pinch or crimp the snorkel tube
tubing.

AQUAWORX MARC OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
I. General
The MARC is a handheld device that is specifically
designed to program the Aquaworx IPC Panel product
line. The MARC has the ability to mount inside the IPC
Panel making it readily available for that individual panel.
Alternatively, it can be removed for use with multiple
panels. Removing the MARC has an additional benefit of
minimizing the ability of unauthorized persons to inadvertently adjust the system settings. The MARC connects to
and communicates with the panel using a standard RJ45
cable (included). The MARC includes a SD memory card
slot, allowing the user to capture and download system
events and settings onto a removable card. This provides
the operator with a history of system function, which is
critical to troubleshooting and maintaining a pump-driven
system.
II. MARC Plug-in and Start-up
1. Plug RJ45 cable into bottom of MARC unit.
2. Plug other end of RJ45 cable into panel connector.
3. LCD screen will display.
NOTE: The MARC receives its power from the IPC Panel
and does not have a power source of its own.

Veto Dose: The Veto function is simply a separate level
that instructs the pump to run a different timing sequence
and is intended to prevent pump tank overflows. The veto
level is typically set above the high level alarm. When liquid reaches the veto level, the veto pump cycle times are
initiated. The veto pump cycle times will remain in effect
until the liquid level falls below the veto level. It the veto
level is set above the alarm level, the alarm remains on.
The alarm will not de-activate until it is manually silenced
or the liquid level drops below the alarm level.

SAND FILTER PANEL SET-UP
The IPC-DSF is designed for two pumps, two chambers
and two transducer systems such as Sand Filters or
Advanced Treatment Units. We named our system
Sand Filter; however, it may be used with other advanced
systems that require two pumps in different pump
chambers with separate liquid levels.
In a traditional Sand Filter design, Pump A operates the
pump in the Surge Tank that discharges to the sand filter,
and Pump B operates the Pump Basin that discharges
to the drainfield. Pump A is slaved to Pump B, so that if
Pump B has an alarm, then Pump A will not run. This is
important in order to protect the filter from an overload
condition.
The Control Panel & Transducer set-up will follow the
instructions for the Duplex panel found in Sections II & III
of this manual and the Wiring Diagram found in the panel
box. In addition, the IPC-DSF will require an additional
step to properly connect the low voltage Pressure
Transducer wires from both tanks.
See Figure 5. The small 6-pin wire terminal strip may
be wired using the following instructions (numbered 1-6,
from left to right).
1. Plug-in the Marc using the RJ45 cord. Screen should
indicate Aquaworx, with version #.
2. Scroll to LOGIN and press ENTER, then scroll to the
Sand Filter screen and press ENTER. SELECT login code
– 3333, Then press ENTER - Screen should read Sand
Filter logged in. (MARC 1 - Login as Duplex by selecting
2222)
3. Scroll to PUMP A SETTINGS and press ENTER.
Enter the appropriate pump settings from Designer by
following Section V of the manual.
Important Note: remember to calibrate both Pressure
Transducers under the ZERO BIAS setting. The zero bias
may be found on both the label and bell of the transducer
(Example ZB-07).
4. Complete the same step for PUMP B SETTINGS.
5. To enable the Sand Filter feature, Scroll to MODE
SETTINGS and press ENTER.
6. Scroll to BOTH PUMPS/SFI screen and SELECT Y-yes.
7. To save your new settings to the processor, Scroll to
AUTO, then press ENTER. Screen should default to
Status screen.
Your IPC-DSF panel will now be ready for operation.

“B” Calculate the System Pump Volume in Gallons per
Minute
**This is required to calculate Dose Volume**
Gallons per minute (gpm) = (Draw Down x (gal/in))
1. M
easure the pump discharge based on a 1 minute
draw down of the tank.
2. Using the MARC, on MANUAL settings (Hands Off
Auto) write down or record the liquid level.
3. Manually pump the tank for one minute. (Time will be
recorded on the MARC as you manually pump down.)
4. Write down or record the difference in liquid level
between the start and stop.
5. T
his will measure the liquid level draw down in inches
for a one minute manual (HOA) pumping.
Example:
Draw Down = 2” (per the one minute draw down
procedure listed above)
Gallons per minute (gpm) = (Draw Down x (gal/in))
Gallons per minute (gpm) = (2” x 20 gal/in)
(gpm) = 40
“C” M
inimum Dose Size Equation: Dose “ON” Time
or PUMP “ON Time (D)
**This is required to calculate Dose Volume (C)**
Dose “ON” Time (D) = (A + 3B)
A=T
ime the pump is turned on until first squirt @ the first
orifice (this will compensate for time when no water is
being discharge to the system).
B = The time from when the first squirt shows @ the first
orifice until the laterals are equally pressurized.
By multiplying by 3, we are ensuring that 67% of the
water is being equally distributed.
“D” Calculation for Dose Volume
Gallons per dose (gpd) =
(Dose “ON” Time/60 x gallons per minute (gpm))
Example:
Gallons per dose (gpd) =
(Dose “ON” Time x gallons per minute (gpm))
Gallons per dose (gpd) =
(35 (seconds)/60(seconds/minute)) x 40 (gpm)
(gpd) = (.58 x 40)
(gpd) = 23.3 gallons
“E” Calculation for Number of Doses per Day
Number of doses per day =
gallons per day (estimated daily flow rate)/
gallons per dose
Example:
Assume 360 gallons per day system
(Typically set by designer)
Doses per day (dpd) =
360 gallons per day / 23.3 gallons per dose
Doses per day (dpd) = 360/23.3
(dpd) = 15.4 doses per day
(dpd) = 15 doses per day
“F” Calculation for Pump “OFF” Time
Take the number of hours in a day =
24 hours and divide this by the
number of doses per day
Example:
Pump “OFF” Time = 24 (hrs.)/15 (dpd)
Pimp “OFF” Time - 1.6 hrs or 1 hour/36
Example:
Pump is turned on and the first squirt shows in 5 seconds
A = 5 (seconds)
The time from the first squirt until the system is
pressurized is 10 seconds
B = 10 (seconds)
Dose “ON” Time (D) = (A + 3B)
Dose “ON” Time (D) = 5 + (3 x 10)
Dose “ON” Time (D) = 5 + 30
Dose “ON” Time (D) = 35 seconds

TIMED DOSING SETUP FORMULATION
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
REVIEW SIX STEPS REQUIRED
FOR THE IPC PANEL SETUP
What does Z-BIAS mean?
Each transducer manufactured has a slightly different resistance
called zero bias. Every transducer is calibrated at the factory prior
to shipment. The calibration rating is labeled on the bell, and
recorded on the outside of the transducer package. The Z-BIAS
value needs to be programmed into the panel at start up.

What is Auto-clear?
Timed System: The air trapped in the transducer bell needs to be
replaced on occasion. During periods of low or no flow the level
will start to drop in the tank. Once the level drops down to the start
level the computer tracks the next dose or doses as auto-clear
doses. Since the start level is typically set to one dose volume,
the auto clear is typically set to one. (Example: A 40 gallon dose
would translate to a 2” dose in most 1, 000 gallon tanks) During
one of the doses the level will drop below the start level. The next
2” dose will then end below the bottom of the bell and the system
will be idle until the liquid level rises above the start level again. In
the case of small doses multiple auto-clear doses may be needed.
(Example: If the dose volume is 10 gallons, then 1/2” enough
doses are required to draw the level to one inch below the bell,
so in this case an auto clear of 4 would be used).
Demand System: In a demand dose system the start level becomes the pump ON and the bottom of the bell becomes the
OFF level. The auto clear is set in seconds - typically 10 seconds.
(Example: Pump will turn on at the start level, pump down to the
bottom of the bell then wait through the OFF time then run the additional time to clear the bell).
Can I cut or splice the transducer signal wire?
It is OK to cut the transducer wire to length from the tank to the
panel. However, the cable should NOT be spliced. The high
potential of corrosion when splicing the signal wire will affect
the signal and could reduce the accuracy of the unit. The
transducers come in 4 lengths eliminating the need for field
splicing. The lengths are 40’, 80’, 120’, and 240’.
What does VETO mean?
The VETO feature is a second timer setting (also known as an
override in some markets). If the flow increases above the Veto
level, the VETO timing replaces the normal time settings. If the
level in the tank is at or above the VETO level, the panel will
operate in the VETO schedule in addition to its normal time settings.
I have input the new settings but it still runs the default program.
If the timer schedule and/or the level functions are changed, the
AUTO feature MUST be selected. This will upload the new
changes to the board and is found on the MARC unit between
Manual A and Pump A settings.
How should I supply power to the panel?
The control power must be 120V. The pump circuit for the panel
can be wired either 120 volts or 240 volts depending on the pump
requirements. It is important to provide two designated circuits
to the panel, one circuit to the pump and one to the controls. The

primary load draw is the pump and the most likely component to
trip the supply circuit breaker. With two circuits, if the pump circuit
tripped, power would be available to the controls and will notify the
homeowner of the problem.
Why does my control panel read the EVENTs once a minute?
If the Log Status in the panel is set to Y (yes), then it will record
every event once per minute. This will cause the 4000 event to
fill-up quickly in the panel. The Log Status may be set to N (no).
To change this using the MARC, go to Mode settings and press
enter. In the first screen named Log Status, if you press enter the
Log Status can be changed to N (no).
Why does my Transducer always read a 00.0” level?
In some cases the Transducer or circuit board may need to be
replaced. Check all connections. Test any component before
installing it. Checking a transducer with a bucket of water is an
easy way to see if the new transducer solved the problem.
Why does the Transducer read a constant level, (ex: 1.5- 6.5”)
even though the pump is running?
The Transducer wiring to the circuit board is not in the proper
sequence. Make sure the input wires are RED (RD), BLUE (BL),
and BLACK (BK) from left to right on the wire terminal strip
attached to the circuit board.
How do you setup for a Redundant off Float?
The best way to use a redundant off is to wire a load rated float
switch in line with the power in the pump vault. Secondly, many
pump companies supply a “piggy back float” option.
How do I wire a panel for 230/240 Volt installations?
The control side of the panel must only be wired for 120 volt
installation. For the pump(s) power supply (Line side),
using 3-wire, connect the Red wire to the Neutral or Pump L1
terminal block and the Black wire to the Pump L2 terminal block.
The White neutral wire can be cut back.
What should I use to plug the conduit to prevent sewer gases
from entering the enclosure?
There is a variety of conduit sealing compounds available, but we
recommend, Chico SpeedSeal Compound, as it will quickly harden
to a dense, strong mass and is UL Listed and cUL Listed.
Can you run the same Transducer wire in the conduit for the
pump supply?
The Transducer wire can be run thru the same conduit as the
pump power supply without interference. However, the
Transducer is a low voltage wire and in some jurisdictions it is
not allowed to run both High/Low voltages in the same conduit.
Check with both regional and State Regulations first.
Can I setup the IPC panel with a Remote Alarm?
Yes, a remote alarm can be purchased as an option with all
Aquaworx IPC panels. The remote alarm will provide the same
alarm sequence as the alarms on the main enclosure. The remote
alarm can be located up to 2000’ away from the main control box.
Contact customer service to purchase.
What is the difference between DOSE, ADOSE & BDOSE in the
Event log?
Dose = A recorded standard Dose from pump A.
ADose = A recorded Autoclear Dose.
BDose = A recorded Dose from pump B.
Can the panel be setup using two transducers?
Yes, using a IPC Sand filter panel specifically for installations that
require two separate pump systems each needing a separate
transducer for each pump. (Product ID number: IPC-DSF)
When I set the panel up to run both pumps what will happen?
This setting is designed to run both pump A and pump B during a
Veto level. This setting is used in conjunction with a Duplex panel
to pump the tank down faster. This should only be used if the
pumps are small and both pumps can run on one circuit or if it is a
specialty panel setup for individual circuits for each pump.
Can I put a heater unit inside the control panel?
Yes, Aquaworx offers a heater unit that can be easily setup in an
existing or new IPC panel. Contact customer service for more
information.
What is the battery on the circuit board, and/or will I lose my
events if the power goes out?
Its purpose is to keep the clock running, which will allow the data
logging to record when the power goes out and for how long the
power was off. The battery can last up to five years without a
replacement but, it is recommend that it be change every year.
If the battery is lost and the power goes out all data and all
settings are retained and will function once power is restored,
however, the date and time will re-set to 00.
What is a Varistor?
A varistor is a variable resistor used to protect excessive current in
a circuit. Our varistor is connected between the incoming line and
neutral. This 130V varistor serves as over voltage/surge protection
for the controller.
How do I setup the panel to handle a Sand filter application?
Using the MARC controller, under the Mode settings, the Run Both
/ SFI (Sand Filter Interface) menu will need to be set to Y (yes). This
will not allow Pump A to initiate if pump B has a high level alarm.
The MARC unit is not recording events from my SD card?
If the MARC screen is going blank during the download, then it is
probably receiving too much current from the SD card. This may
be caused by too much data on the card, or too much memory
on the card. We recommend a 1 Gigabit maximum SD card with
dedicated use for the MARC.
How do I wire a Transducer to the panel for a Sand filter
application?
Follow the instructions provided with the panel. If the
instructions are lost we can email you, or download from our
website, www.aquaworx.com
