Section 3 - System Overview
3.1 Introduction
The Dielectric ATS300PLUS is a state of the art Automatic Transfer System and Multiple Dryer Controller.
The ATS300PLUS is designed to automatically cycle compressor/dehydrators and to start-up the standby dryer(s) in the event an alarm occurs with the on-line dryer(s). Remote monitoring, programming,
alarm resetting and air dryer restarting is available using PC with Modem and/or Ethernet with “WinCAM
3.xx” software. An Alphanumeric Paging or Email feature can alert the technician should a Minor or Major
ATS alarm occur.
The ATS300PLUS operates multiple day rotations and can provide for the automatic rotation of duty
among predetermined groups of air dryer units in a central office with up to 8 air dryer units. The
ATS300PLUS will allow key personnel to access any central office from a remotely located PC/modem
(password and dedicated phone line required) or via LAN. The user can access the status of the office,
individual air dryer information, remote optional analog sensors (up to four may be added), check alarms,
run time accumulation and maintain a rolling history of major central office events. The user can remotely
reset alarms, restart dryers and restore air dryers to normal without leaving their home or work center.
Also a Local connection through a computer is possible using the USB port, a standard USB Type A to
Type B cable (provided), and WinCam 3.xx software.
The savings in electrical energy associated with only operating the necessary number of air dryer units in
a major central office will alone pay for the ATS300PLUS. Further cost savings can be obtained from
being able to remotely reset air dryer units, rather than dispatching a technician to reset every air dryer
alarm. In addition the use of a single pair for controlling and monitoring the air dryer units is another
significant saving.

3.2 Alternating Mode
The two available operational modes are AUTO-ROTATION MODE and ROW ROSTER MODE. The
AUTO-ROTATION MODE will be preferred in most normal cases. If the air dryer units are relatively
similar, i.e., same model, flow output, and nearly same age, then AUTO-ROTATION MODE should be
selected. ROW ROSTER MODE should only be considered if special cycling considerations are required.
Using ROW ROSTER MODE, selected units may be scheduled for more run time than others, and groups
of similar units can be operated together or mixed. ROW ROSTER MODE provides greater flexibility and
is very useful for central offices with up to 8 air dryer units or where the dryers are of mixed size and
manufacturer.
3.3 Standby Only Mode
In applications where it is desirable to only operate one air dryer unit and maintain the other on standby, it
is recommended to use the AUTO-ROTATION MODE but select no day for transfer.
3.4 Automatic / Manual Transfer
The ATS300PLUS will automatically transfer to the stand-by air dryer as programmed in the AUTOROTATION MODE or the ROW ROSTER MODE. The transfer clock determines exact transfer time.
Pushing both the Select buttons at once and holding for 10 seconds can execute a Manual transfer.

3.5 Pre-Installation Considerations
It is important to install an AC 115V outlet within 6’ of where the ATS300PLUS is to be mounted. The
ATS300PLUS Controller unit can be wall mounted or rack mounted at least 25’ from the closest air dryer
unit. For the COMMUNICATION MODEM, a dedicated analog telephone line is necessary for remote
monitoring and call-up features. The ATS300PLUS utilizes an addressable address for each air dryer
unit, and it is therefore not necessary to install the controller unit near air dryer #1.
For the Ethernet LAN Communication, a nearby RJ45 Jack is required and a LAN Cable. Refer to the
manual for the LAN/Communication Card for installation and setup.
NOTE: To avoid nuisance ATS300PLUS alarms during back-up generator testing, the 120 VAC Power
Source for the ATS300PLUS MUST be on generator power (essential power).
Compatible analog sensors must be a 4-20mA 2 wire output encompassing an input voltage supply of
12V DC or Lower.
WARNING: Operating the ATS300PLUS from a stand-alone "U.P.S.", (Uninterruptable Power Supply)
is now allowable as long as the segregated cable (non SmartTech Series Dryers) is used and each Dryer
Model is defined in WinCam’s Dryer Setup Window

4.2 DIELECTRIC WATER-SEALED AIR DRYER Model S, SE,
M, and ME series
STEP 1 - Mount the ATS300PLUS CONTROLLER UNIT on wall or rack, within the cable distance of an
air dryer unit. See Installation Drawings.
STEP 2 - Mount the IUC PANELS to the rear of the air dryer units. Brackets are designed to “Hang” on
the rear of the model 20000/30000SE air dryer. Models 5000/10000/15000SE/ME air dryers have
accommodating pre-drilled holes at the rear of unit. Other units may require drilling holes. It may be
desirable to mount on wall near dryers.
STEP 3 - Connect ATS300PLUS to the nearest air dryer unit using the supplied cable. Then daisy chain
each air dryer unit using the other BUS cables. Run the bus cable to the first IUC and connect it to the
mating D-connector. Connect the end of the next cable to the connector of opposite gender on the IUC
and run this cable to the next air dryer unit IUC. Each air dryer unit IUC is individually addressed. It does
not matter in which order the 8 air dryer unit IUCs are connected.

STEP 4 - Install the two- (2) wiring harnesses, i.e., ATS INTERFACE and SEGREGATED ALARMS. In
most cases the 7-wire cable must be connected to the ATS-INTERFACE terminal board located on the air
dryer. This cable must be connected in accordance with the indicated color code on the terminal board
label. This cable may be trimmed to desired length prior to installation.
Other manufacturer’s air dryers can be adapted by designating a wire for each alarm (up to 10 wires).
The alarm can be identified and named in the WinCam software. Other manufacturer’s dryer applications
will require an ATS-304 or ATS-305 INTERFACE KIT to be mounted on the wall between the
CONTROLLER and air dryer. Refer to Page 16 for Installation Procedures.

OPTIONAL STEP 6 - Hook-up the remote/monitoring alarm pairs to the MINOR and MAJOR alarm
outputs of the ATS300PLUS alarm connector. Remove the Plug-In Screw Connector, strip back wire ends
and attach wires per the Label. Choose “Open in Alarm” or “Closed in Alarm” and program the monitoring
system accordingly. Route the cable through the strain relief tie wrap and secure. A MINOR ATS alarm
will occur if one-air dryer unit experiences a MINOR or MAJOR alarm. The MAJOR alarm will occur only if
all air dryers SHUTDOWN or a BAD ROSTER is noticed (i.e., inadequate number of back-up air dryers
are noticed).If the optional sensors are used , a Minor or Major ATS alarm will occur independent if setup
in WinCam3.xx

INSTALLING ATS-304/ATS-305 INTERFACE PANEL – For Models
IM2400/3200/5000/7200 and other manufacturer’s Air Dryers (See Installation
Drawing)
STEP 1 - Mount the ATS-304 or ATS-305 INTERFACE PANEL on wall or rack, within the cable distance
of an air dryer unit. Using the enclosure, mark the mounting screw locations and drill four holes. Hole size
will depend on the type of hardware used. Clearance in the box accommodates 1/4” hardware.
STEP 2 - Disconnect the air dryer power cable from the power source. Route the cable from the air dryer
to the strain relief clamp (top right) on the ATS-304/305 panel and feed the cable through the clamp.
NOTE The ATS304 (120VAC version) has Pigtail cables with Male and Female 120 Power connectors.
No wiring is required. Skip to Step 6 for Alarm Cable wiring.
STEP 3 - Connect wires labeled T1, T2, and T3 (for 3-phase units) directly on the CONTACTOR from the
bottom terminal up. Note that the top terminal (T3) is not used if connecting to a single-phase unit.
Connect the ground wire to the grounding lug located below the CONTACTOR.
STEP 4 - Route an input power cable to the top left strain relief clamp on the panel and through the
clamp.

STEP 5 - Connect wires L1, L2, and L3 if applicable) directly onto the CONTACTOR from the bottom
terminal up. The top terminal is not used if connecting to a single-phase unit. Connect the ground wire to
the grounding lug located below the CONTACTOR.
STEP 6 - Route a cable from the air dryer segregated alarm terminal board through the strain relief clamp
(left bottom) on the interface panel. If segregated or discrete alarms are connected to the monitoring
system, rewire monitoring system alarm contacts into the ATS-304/305 ALARM OUTPUT in step 10 if
necessary. At the alarm segregated terminal board, configure wiring for a single common wire and
individual wires for up to 10 different alarms.
STEP 7 - At the interface panel, locate the Input terminal board and verify the alarm logic (open or closed
in alarm) of the air dryer alarms. If unknown, verify with an Ohmmeter prior to connecting. A short circuit
when in Alarm is defined as “Closed in Alarm “. Connect the common wire to the first terminal marked
“COM” and the individual alarm wires to POWER FAILURE, ALM2, etc. up to ALM10. If there is no Power
Failure Alarm input, leave blank and wire to ALM2 first. Factory Default, Jumpers J1, J2 and J3 are
configured for Closed in Alarm inputs on pins 1 and 2 (all jumpers are located to the right of the center
pin)
STEP 8 - If the air dryer alarms are Open in Alarm, then all unconnected alarms including the Power
Failure alarm (if not used) must be looped to the COM terminal located above ALM10. Loop from COM to
ALM10, ALM10 to ALM9, ALM9 to ALM8, and so forth. Also there are three alarm jumps, J1, J2, and J3
that must be configured based on the Alarm Logic. For Open in Alarm circuits, install jumper connectors
on J1, J2 and J3 on pins 2 and 3 (jumpers are moved to the left of the center pin)
STEP 9- Connect to the OUTPUT Segregated Alarm terminal board. Regardless of how the Alarm Inputs
are configured, For “Closed in Alarm “ wire to the “COM” and “NC” terminals, for “Open in Alarm” wire to
“COM” and “NO” terminals

5.1 INITIAL POWER UP and TEST
1. All LEDs and digital display segments will turn ON as the system powers up and performs its INITIAL
START-UP ROUTINES. (Following the one (1) minute power-on delay)
2. The POWER ON indicator () will begin to blink. And the UNIT STATUS DISPLAY LED’s will Blink
YELLOW (), wherever an air dryer unit is assigned to an address. (Example: If air dryer A is
assigned to address #1 on its IUC panel (DIP SWITCH), the #1 LED (UNIT DISPLAY LED) will be
indicating Blinking YELLOW ().
3. All Day indicator LED’s will be ON and the digital display (Transfer Time) will indicate 7:59am (or the
new time if changed).
4. The ROSTER #1 STATUS LED will indicate RED () in most cases. And all ROSTER LISTING
LED’s will indicate GREEN.
5. The ALARM LED () will start blinking after 10 seconds and remain ON within 20 seconds of initial
start-up.
6. Check that every air dryer unit has an LED blinking on the UNIT STATUS DISPLAY. If not, checks
address setting on the IUC of the corresponding air dryer unit.
7. When all the air dryer units indicate they are present on the bus, Wait 3-minutes for the POWER UP
DELAY to expire, the POWER LED will indicate GREEN
8. (). At this point, all the air dryer units will be in START-UP sequence, which takes several minutes to
complete.
9. The air dryer units will begin indicating RUNNING DISARMED, followed by a solid GREEN (),
indicating all units are RUNNING and ARMED.
10. The ATS is factory set with ROSTER #1 programmed to run all units and ROSTER #1 will be set as
the current roster. This is the factory default setting.
11. Thus, when initial power is applied, all air dryer units will START and RUN and continue to run. It is
necessary to off-load any empty rows from ROSTER #1. See Programming.

Section 10 - ATS300PLUS
REVIEW
TECHNICAL
The ATS300PLUS is an automatic transfer system to control multiple dryer installations. In its most basic
configuration, the ATS300PLUS will control up to 8 individual air dryers. above it. Each module consists
of a column of 8 LED’s called the UNIT STATUS DISPLAY. This display has one LED indicator for each
air dryer assignment.
10.1 ABOUT THE BUS CABLES
The bus cable is a multi-conductor cable consisting of two (2)-shielded pairs and an overall shield. Each
shield has a drain wire and the manufacturer adds an insulated communications line making a total of 8
lines in the cable. The pair labeled ONE is the 24VAC power for the IUC’s. The pair labeled TWO is the
RS-485 data bus. The RS-485 standard is a voltage differential bus, designed for high EMI industrial
environments. The data bus provides reliable data flow. The shielding minimizes line noise interference.
All data flow is confirmed with repeat transmission. This technique will detect any bit errors and has been
found to be the most reliable technique for data transmission.
10.2 ABOUT THE IUC’s
The IUC Panels, Individual Unit Controller is mounted on each air dryer unit. The IUC transmits and
receives information to and from the ATS300PLUS controller via an RS-485 bus. The IUC has a
receptacle for the “KEY” which defines to the IUC which type of air dryer unit it is controlling. These KEY’s
are supplied with every Dielectric air dryer. The same KEY is used for ATS300PLUS and ATS-200
installation.
NOTE: The ATS-304/305 Interface and ST Series Air Dryers requires no Key.
WARNING! Dielectric Air Dryers DO NOT ALL USE THE SAME KEY. Using the incorrect KEY can
cause damage to the equipment. Use proper KEY with installation. Problems often occur following
replacement of older “Q” series air dryers. The “Q” series dryers used a different KEY than newer air
dryers such as the “SE”, “ME” & “RE” series.
Each IUC panel and ATS304/305 Interface is equipped with a three position switch, which is used to
RESET an air dryer alarm, restoring unit to NORMAL operation following an alarm condition and to
remove from ATS300PLUS control, i.e., MANUAL CONTROL
NOTE: Dielectric SmartTech Series Air Dryers have a built in IUC in the electronics and no KEY is
required. A toggle switch in the back of the Air Dryer is used to place it in Manual Operation.
ATS300PLUS addressing is handled through the Front Display under Menu, Setup, ATS BUS Address

10.3 ABOUT AUTO-ROTATION MODE
The AUTO-ROTATION mode is the simplest mode to program and is the mode that is used most often.
This mode is perfect for central offices where the equipment is almost identical in age, capacity and
reliability. In these cases, there is no reason not to operate in auto-rotation. During programming, specify
the number of air dryer units to be held in STANDBY under normal conditions. The ATS300PLUS will
rotate duty systematically through all the units. At each transfer the ATS300PLUS will automatically rotate
one standby air dryer back into service and shut down one of the in-service air dryers, thus rotating duty
through the entire office on a regular basis, maintaining the number of STANDBY units at any given time.
Air dryer units designated for CONTINUOUS MODE or CONTINUOUS STANDBY (via remote WinCAM
software only) will be excluded automatically from normal rotation. Also excluded from regular rotation are
air dryer units that are switched “MANUAL CONTROL” and units that are in MINOR or MAJOR ALARM.
These excluded units will be skipped over in the rotation process just as if they were not there.
10.4 ABOUT ROW ROSTER MODE
In most cases ROW ROSTER mode is simple and effective. Row Rosters are listings of groups of rows of
air dryer units. In this mode all the air dryer units in a given horizontal row, as indicated on the UNIT
STATUS DISPLAY operate as a team either operating together or in standby together. Units designated
in CONTINUOUS modes are excluded from their respective rows. For CO’s with 8 or less units, each unit
constitutes a row. There are 8 definable rosters. ROW ROSTER mode allows some air dryer units to be
scheduled for more operation. Groups of similar units can be operated together or mixed in a desired way
with dissimilar units. This mode provides greater flexibility than auto-rotation. The user may program up to
8 different duty configurations or rosters and at transfer time the ATS300PLUS will automatically
reconfigure the entire office to the next duty roster on the list. All rosters will be stored in non-volatile
memory so the office will restore itself automatically following a power interruption.
In ROW ROSTER mode a dryer alarm interrupts the cycling of dryer units and the ATS300PLUS will
begin starting standby units as needed. The ATS300PLUS will suspend any transfers from one roster to
another until the alarm condition is cleared.
10.5 ABOUT RAPID CYCLE
Many of the procedures and responses programmed into the ATS300PLUS have lengthy cycle or delay
times. It is recommended to avoid pressing RAPID CYCLE and allow these built in time delays to take
affect during normal routines. In special cases where a technician may want to immediately review a
change, it is possible to press the RAPID CYCLE button until the red indicator LED (R/C-dot located in
the lower right corner of the digital display) energizes. Pressing RAPID CYCLE will accelerate the
routines by 1/10 the time.
Only alarm responses are excluded. Alarm responses will still take 10 seconds. Following a start-up or
shutdown routine, the RAPID CYCLE will cancel itself. After a POWER UP the ATS300PLUS initiates a
3-minute START/DISARM command to all available air dryers. Pressing the RAPID CYCLE button will
cancel the 3-minute delay. Pressing the button a second time will speed up the remaining IUC operations
needed to configure the office.
© Dielectric 2016
31
10.6 ABOUT POWER UP and POWER INTERRUPTIONS
The ATS300PLUS is designed with a start-up routine. This routine will place all air dryer units to prepower alarm status, i.e., if unit was in alarm prior to the power loss, then the ATS300PLUS will remind the
dryer of that condition. After this update each IUC immediately transmits a START and DISARM signal to
its air dryer unit unless it was in ALARM prior to the power loss. This signal will be present for 3-minutes
to ensure that all air dryer units capable of running are operating and free of alarms. During this moment,
the POWER LED will begin blinking; indicating that it is operating in the power up routine.
POWER LOSS TO ATS300PLUS ONLY - Should the ATS300PLUS lose power, all air dryer units are
placed into the RUN mode and operate. Air dryer units operating prior to a power loss to the
ATS300PLUS will continue to run without interruption. Units requiring start and/or disarm signals from the
ATS300PLUS will not start when power is lost. This is typically not a concern. All air dryer units operating
at the time of power loss will continue to operate.
All air dryer units connected to an ATS-304/305 interface panel will run.
NOTE: When power returns to the ATS300PLUS, a one- (1) minute power-on delay occurs
Following the power-up routine and after the 3-minutes, the ATS300PLUS will reconfigure the office by
placing in standby the units specified by its programming. Units operating before the power loss will
continue to operate without interruption
NOTE: A Power Failure Routine is part of the ATS300PLUS programming. This allows the ATS300PLUS
to be hooked up to a BACKUP UPS system to provide uninterrupted power during a power outage. The
ATS300Plus monitors each dryers Power Failure Alarm circuit when properly setup in the WinCam. When
power is reestablished to each Air Dryer, the ATS300Plus will automatically issue an Alarm Reset
Command and restart the Air Dryers without intervention
10.7 TRANSFER ROUTINES - STARTUP
When the ATS300PLUS initiates a transfer from one configuration to another or when it starts a
STANDBY dryer in response to an alarm, the process begins with the controller transmitting a START
signal to the unit(s) to be started. These signals are staggered based on the air dryer’s bus address,
preventing a large number of air dryers starting at the same moment. Once a START signal is received by
an IUC, it starts the air dryer in accordance with the following routine.
1.
5 second delay
2.
35 second (START/DISARM)
3.
175 second (RUN/DISARM)
4.
RUN and ARMED
This routine can be accelerated using RAPID CYCLE. The time interval is reduced by factor of 10.

10.8 TRANSFER ROUTINES - SHUTDOWN
The ATS300PLUS controller monitors the above routine and awaits confirmation from each IUC that all
air dryer units are properly started and running free of alarms. Once the controller confirms that the units
to run are running and free of alarms (this represents all dryers that were OK prior to interruption) it then
allows the air dryers to run with their alarms armed for 60 seconds.
The controller allows all the on-line units to continue operation for 60 seconds, allowing the IUC’s to
detect and latch any alarms which may be present and to establish what air dryer(s) scheduled for
STANDBY must remain running to cover the detected alarm conditions.
Following this period of operation the controller will transmit, at 10 second intervals, first a DISARM
signal and 5 seconds later a STOP signal to each unit to be placed back into STANDBY.
10.9 ALARM RESPONSE ROUTINES - AIR DRYER UNITS
The ATS300PLUS has two levels of ALARM detection for control purposes. An air dryer unit MINOR
ALARM will cause the ATS300PLUS to start a standby unit and continue to run the air dryer unit in minor
alarm. The MINOR ALARM will latch in after 10 seconds of uninterrupted alarm condition and will require
a technician reset at the IUC (via office visit or remotely with WinCAM software). Following an office
power interruption, the ATS300PLUS will restart units in MINOR ALARM and re-establish the MINOR
ALARM condition at the IUC and go through its power up routine after the 1-minute delay.
The response for an air dryer unit in MAJOR ALARM is identical to the above except that the
ATS300PLUS will transmit a STOP signal to the air dryer unit in major alarm. The alarm condition must
be reset. Following an office power interruption, the ATS300PLUS will not start any air dryer unit in
MAJOR ALARM. DURING generator testing in which the ATS300PLUS remains on-line (or connected
to a UPS power supply), the ATS300PLUS will interrupt the dryer alarms as a “ALL COMPRESSORS
FAILURE” and automatically go through its start-up routine (blinking power led) resetting the units IUC’s
and restarting the air dryers.
NOTE: The ATS300PLUS will not interfere with any air dryer unit's shutdown feature

Section 12 - ATS300PLUS
SYSTEM
SECURITY
The ATS300PLUS is equipped with a 4-level security system: Supervisor, Technician, Monitor, and
Blacklist. Factory default setting will include the password *DIELECTRIC>. This password is installed at
the factory for first gaining access, however it can be deleted once other Passwords have been
established. DO NOT Delete the *DIELECTRIC> password before verifying all the new passwords being
added work. Note that DIELECTRIC is in all capital letters. If using the Caps Lock key, the Shift key is
needed for the “*” and “>” symbols.
NOTE: When assigning Passwords, the passwords are CASE sensitive so it will recognize both upper
and lower case letters. Also Security Levels choices are Supervisor, Technician, Monitor, and Blacklist.
The Supervisor level has full programming access to the ATS300PLUS, the Technician has most
programming access but is restricted from the Password Window, the Monitor has access to dial into the
ATS300PLUS but has no programming access, and Blacklist is denied access to a ATS300PLUS.
NOTE: An outside person cannot access the system without having WinCAM software.
12.1 PASSWORD FORMAT
It is possible to store up to 24 different PASSWORD. A password must consist of an “*” followed by up to
10 characters followed by the greater sign “>” (eg *DIELECTRIC> or *ATS300> or simply *>.
Using individual passwords for each technician allows the WinCAM status log to record the password of
the person calling in for future reference. The Supervisor is the only one that will be able to see who has
called in from the Central Office Event Log.

so that all Service Provider fields are automatically filled-in.
Auto-completion reduces risk of errors in Service Provider dial-up modem phone number / dial-up
password in manual reentry of information. The Service Provider password is optional, and is
needed only if the dial-up modem pool requires a password for login to the paging system.
NOTE: The paging feature should be tested on-site at the CO prior to its use. That is, after setting up all
pagers, a test run should be conducted by generating a dryer alarm condition, and verifying that all pages
are received properly.

5.
Reminder Page
In order to address paging system outages and out-of-range technicians, the ATS300PLUS will
transmit duplicate Pages/Emails at fixed intervals, assuming that no new alarm event occurs during
the delay period. All alarm events are reminded at the same intervals, there are not separate
reminder intervals for minor or major C.O. alarms.
The Reminder Page/Email feature can also be turned off. This is an office-wide parameter,
applicable to all Pagers/Emails. Changing this parameter on one pager in an office changes the
parameter for all Pagers/Emails in that office.
NOTE: The reminders are issued every x minutes, per the setting, until the alarm is cleared (and the
'Alarm Cleared' page sent). A setting of 'Off' is a one-time alarm page. The reminder page setting is only
applicable to outstanding alarm conditions. The 'Alarms Cleared' message is only sent once, regardless
of the reminder setting.
6.
Paging Operation
The ATS300PLUS paging feature complies with the TAP (Telocator Alphanumeric Protocol)
protocol, the most common alphanumeric paging standard. The ATS300PLUS realization is highly
generic; to work with the most restricted implementation of the protocol. Paging systems which
deviate from the TAP standard may not be compatible with the ATS300PLUS.
A paging event is triggered by any dryer alarm, which results in an ATS alarm. A minor ATS alarm
precedes the resulting outgoing alarm page by 3.5 minutes. This gives ample time for the required
standby dryer to come online. This 3.5-minute delay is refreshed for each new alarm incident, for
as long as a minor ATS alarm is maintained. A major ATS alarm precedes the resulting outgoing
alarm page by 30 seconds. This delay is added only to give an on-site operator time to physically
reset dryer alarms / ATS alarm if any are triggered during on-site service or troubleshooting. The
thirty-second delay is *not* refreshed by any additional alarm events.
Since the ATS300PLUS is only allowed one serial port access to the system at a time, no pages
are issued while any ATS300PLUS serial port is accessed, either via RS232, Ethernet, or modem.
While the ATS300PLUS is restricted from issuing outstanding pages, all alarm detection
mechanisms and paging timers are still active. Pages that could not be conducted due to an
overriding port connection are conducted 30 seconds after the ATS300PLUS has disconnected
(and remains disconnected). The RS232 and Ethernet ports are hardware disabled while a paging
session is active. For each active pager, the ATS300PLUS attempts delivery of the text message
three times before advancing to the next pager. While the TAP protocol ensures valid delivery of
the text message to the paging system, since the paging message transport is unidirectional from
the paging system to the individual pager, no guarantee can be made that an alarm page will be
delivered. Paging system outages and maintenance, and out-of-service area / fringe reception are
examples of issues that may prevent the delivery of alarm messages.

Section 19 - ATS300PLUS
UPGRADE INSTRUCTIONS
CONTROLLER
The ATS300PLUS System is designed to accept periodic updates regarding engineering changes,
products improvements and feature enhancement. These enhancements most likely will require
FIRMWARE replacement and SOFTWARE updating
19.1 FIRMWARE REPLACEMENT
To replace the FIRMWARE chip, first disconnect power to the ATS300PLUS system. The Air Dryers that
are operating at the time of power disconnection will continue operating. Remove the unit from the wall
and carefully remove the back mounting plate. Note that there is cabling attached so flip the plate and lay
it next to the enclosure. Proceed to the CAM motherboard and locate the FIRMWARE chip. Its white label
identifies the chip. Note the version. All PLUS versions use 3.xx only where xx is updates
NOTE: DO NOT use version 3.xx Firmware in non PLUS versions of the ATS300. These older ATS units
used version 2.xx only.
19.2 CHIP REMOVAL / REINSERTION
NOTE: It is important NOT to use ANY tools with MAGNETIC TIPS.
Following power disconnection, gently pry the older version chip from its socket, prying from both ends of
the chip. Note the orientation of the groove in one end of the chip. Carefully place the new replacement
chip on the socket with the same alignment and make certain that all pins are properly aligned with the
chip socket before pressing into position. When you are sure the chip is properly aligned with the socket,
press firmly into position. Do not use excessive force when inserting the chip.
CAUTION!: ALL CHIP PINS must be properly inserted into the socket before power is reapplied.
Otherwise data corruption to the non-volatile RAM may occur
Reapply power. Upgrade is complete. Any questions please contact Dielectric Pressurization Systems at
1-877-AIR DRYR (247-3797).
NOTE: If Power up of the ATS does not occur after the 1 minute delay, unplug the ATS and pull the chip
and check that none of the pins have rolled under
