Introduction
The Amico Automatic Dental Gas Manifold is designed to provide a reliable, uninterrupted supply of gas to a dental
facility. The manifold has the ability to control up to four high pressure cylinders divided into two equal banks per gas.
The active bank is designated as the primary or In Use source of gas, while the other bank will serve as a secondary or
Reserve source. A display of LED's on the front of the manifold indicates the status of the gas supply. Each gas will have
two multicolor LED's that will show the status of each cylinder.
The following colors indicate the status of each cylinder:
• Green - In Use
• Yellow - Stand-By/Ready
• Red - Empty
When the primary cylinder has been depleted, the manifold will automatically switch to the secondary reserve cylinder
without interrupting the supply of gas to the facility. The red LED will illuminate and an alarm will sound when a bank has
depleted and requires replacement.
The Amico Automatic Dental Gas Manifold is designed in accordance with the National Fire Protection Association
(NFPA 99).
FEATURES:
• Input power to the manifold is 13.5 VDC, 1.7 A
• Incorporates six multicolored LED's (three per gas) with two large LED digital pressure displays
• High pressure cylinder regulators
• Manifold complies with NFPA 99
• Line sensors can be mounted within the Amico zone valve box for remote installations
• The line sensor module is the smallest, computer-calibrated, temperature-compensated sensor in the industry
• Self-diagnostic circuitry with error display for problem identification
• Highly accurate, solid state pressure Piezo-resistive transducer
• Integrated dry contacts for additional remote monitoring (for multiple locations and building management
systems)

Description of the Parts
CONTROL BUTTONS
There are two buttons located on the front face of the manifold and on the remote alarm. They are the Mute and
Stand-By buttons.
Mute and Stand-By Buttons
MUTE
The Mute button will silence any alarms until the manifold returns to a Normal condition. After the Mute button has
been pressed, the visual alarms (LED's) will remain lit until the manifold returns to a Normal condition. The alarm will
sound again if another alarm occurs. The alarm will not be cleared until the condition has been corrected.
The Mute button also serves as a test button. If the Mute button is held for 5 seconds, the manifold will run through
a self-diagnostic test and return to the current status.
STAND-BY
By pressing and holding the Stand-By button for five seconds, the manifold will go into stand-by mode, restricting
the flow of both gases via the internal solenoids. As per NFPA 99, 2012 5.3.6.19.4: “it shall be mandatory that cylinder
shut off valves be closed whenever the system is not in use.” This ensures that a dangerous condition will not occur
if the lines are left open. Simply press the Stand-By button to return the manifold to full operation.
NOTE: If equipment in the operating room has not been fully closed while in stand-by mode, the line
pressure will deplete. An initial alarm may occur immediately after returning the manifold into service. Once
pressures have been re-established, all alarms should clear.
CHECK VALVES
The manifold is equipped with internal check valves to avoid gas migration from the left side to the right side and vice
versa. Check valves are located immediately after the solenoids.
REMOTE ALARM/CONTROLLER
The Remote Alarm/Controller (RAC) is intended to relay information from the manifold room to an area of the office
that is consistently monitored. The RAC relays vital manifold information, including high/low line pressures and reserve
cylinder status. The RAC will also allow the facility to place the unit in temporary stand-by mode, as well as mute any
alarms. The RAC contains a speaker that provides an auditory signal when the system is in alarm mode.

Installation Instructions
INSTALLATION OF THE MANIFOLD
1. Remove contents from box and confirm that all required equipment has been supplied. Do not discard packing
material until the system is in full operation. Keep all manuals and warranty cards.
2. Remove manifold from box and inspect for damage.
3. Open cabinet door to access manifold interior.
4. Make sure that there are not any wires that are disconnected from their terminals.
5. Using the manifold, mark mounting screw locations on the wall and install wall anchors if required
NOTE: Use appropriate wall anchors for a secure installation.
6. It is important to centrally locate the manifold amongst all four cylinders to ensure that all hoses can reach the
appropriate connections.
NOTE: Position the manifold at a height that prevents any interference with the cylinders.
7. Using both the Oxygen and Nitrous Oxide pipes, connect the manifold line ports (at the top of the manifold) to the
facility's main gas lines. Pipeline connections have been supplied to be brazed into the main facility line (follow all
local and national codes applicable to your area).
8. Install the tank restraint brackets on the wall as per local codes. Place cylinders in tank restraints and secure.
Make certain all valves have been closed.
NOTE: Before connecting regulators to cylinder, momentarily open and close cylinder valve to blow out dirt and
debris.
9. Install gas specific regulators in cylinders intended for operation. Be certain not to over tighten. Please check with
your medical gas supplier to determine the correct torque needed to tighten the connection.
10. Using the two Oxygen and two Nitrous Oxide 6' (1.8 m) hoses, connect the appropriate hoses to the input lines
located on the bottom of the manifold gas blocks. It is recommended to align cylinders on the wall in relation to
the inputs on the manifold. This will allow for easier identification of tanks during setup/change-out.
11. Connect the loose end of the hoses to the gas specific DISS connection on the regulators.
12. Locate the RAC and connect using a CAT5 or CAT6 cable (cable supplied by others). See page 10.
13. Open all cylinders S-L-O-W-L-Y and check for leaks using Snoop Leak Detector.
NOTE: Electrical power is required to operate the solenoids and restrict flow. Without electrical power, pressure
will fill the lines.
14. Plug in manifold to a 120 V-240 V power supply (do not use extension cords).
15. Confirm that the manifold is on.

Installation Instructions
INSTALLATION OF THE REMOTE ALARM/CONTROLLER
1. From the manifold room, run a CAT5 or CAT6 cable from the manifold to the planned location of the RAC. Allow
approximately 12 inches of cable at either end to prevent tension on the connections.
2. The RAC requires a single gang wall mount solution (please follow local code to provide suitable rough-in box or
low voltage trim).
3. Remove RAC from packaging.
4. Loose set screw (do not discard) located at bottom of box and remove front cover. Set cover aside (do not discard).
5. Plug the cable running from the manifold circuit board into the back of the RAC. Ensure the cable is “clicked” in and
secure. Power up the manifold.
6. Use two screws to secure the alarm to the wall. Be careful not to overtighten.
7. Re-attach the front cover to the RAC and tighten set screw.
8. Test both function and display by proceeding with the same test procedures as the manifold (ex. Stand-By and
Mute). Test to make sure all LED's are lighting in accordance with the manifold status.

Testing
TESTING FOR N2O EMERGENCY CUT OFF
1. Make sure the pressure is stable in both gases and the line pressures read 50 psi. Once this has been confirmed,
close BOTH oxygen cylinder valves.
2. Open the cabinet to obtain access to the manifold blocks. Locate the dip switch on the circuit board and confirm
switch #2 is in the OFF position.
3. Locate the Bleed Valve, refer to page 11.
Dip Switch
4. Slowly push the Bleed Valve and release pressure on the In Use green LED oxygen cylinder. The system will change
over to the reserve tank.
5. After change over has occurred, bleed the now active In Use green LED oxygen cylinder to simulate both tanks
depleting. Once both pressures have depleted, both tanks will be represented with red Empty LED's and the LED
display will read LO.
6. At this time, the nitrous oxide LED display will show OFF and will flash showing that the nitrous oxide has been
closed due to lack of oxygen in the system. An alarm will be heard on both the manifold as well as the RAC.
Cylinder LED's will show yellow while the nitrous oxide cut-off is active.
7. Open the flow of nitrous oxide in the rooms and scavenge the gases out of the room as you test the room. You
should notice initial flow in the rooms, then a slowing of flow as the line pressure decreases and then eventually
stopping. Close all flow in the rooms.
8. S-L-O-W-L-Y open oxygen cylinders one at a time.
NOTE: When both cylinders are off and the system is empty, whichever cylinder you open first, that cylinder will
become the cylinder in use.
9. Pressures should return to normal and one tank will be represented by a green In Use LED and the other
represented by a yellow Reserve LED.
10. Close manifold door and note pressures.
12
Amico Corporation
Testing
TESTING FOR AUTOMATIC CHANGE OVER (CAN BE PERFORMED FOR EITHER GAS)
1. Make sure the pressure is stable and the line pressures reads 50 psi (pushing the Bleed Valves on all cylinders will
make certain the lines are stable). Once this has been confirmed, close the cylinder valve that is represented by the
green LED.
2. Push the Bleed Valve on the same side as the closed cylinder, allowing the cylinder pressure to drop. Once the
pressure gets below the low set-point, the system will change over to the reserve tank previously represented by
the yellow LED. The closed cylinder will show a red Empty LED and the In Use cylinder will show a green LED.
3. An alarm will sound on both the manifold as well as the RAC. You can mute the alarm using the Mute button.
4. Return the system to normal by S-L-O-W-L-Y opening the closed cylinder. Pressure will return to normal and the
Empty cylinder will then be represented by a yellow Reserve LED.

Cylinder Changing Procedures
1. Keep the main bank valve open throughout these procedures.
2. Close the cylinder valves on all empty cylinders.
3. Disconnect the regulators from the cylinder valve outlets, using an appropriate wrench.
4. Place protective caps over the cylinder valves of the empty cylinders and move them aside.
5. Remove protective caps of the full cylinders. Visually inspect the cylinder valves for dust, grease or oil.
6. Using a clean (lint free) cloth, wipe each cylinder valve outlet clean. Do not use your fingers.
7. Standing to one side, “crack” the cylinder valve by briefly opening and closing them to blow out any dust. Make
sure they are pointing away from you and other personnel.

Optional Equipment
A valve box with sensor provisions can be installed in the dental facility to monitor the line pressures downstream of the
manifold. Zone valve boxes shall be an Amico Alert-1 series.
Each sensor valve combo is supplied with a street-elbow (1/8" MNPT x 1/4" FNPT) to connect a DISS fitting (one for each
valve). The elbow is to be installed on site with the gas specific pressure sensor. Each sensor will have a terminal block to
connect the negative and positive wires. The terminal blocks shall be assembled into the valve box.
Once the sensors are installed into the valve box, they can be wired back to the manifold. The cable used shall be Belden
#8451 or equivalent #22 gauge shielded twisted pair (for multiple sensors a multi-conductor shielded twisted pair cable
should be used).
CONNECTING THE REMOTE SENSOR WIRES TO THE MANIFOLD
• Unplug the manifold power connector. Open the Manifold door and locate the plate covering the circuit
board. Remove bolts and take out the protective cover.
• Locate the sensor wires on the manifold labelled “LINE +/-“. There is one set for each gas
• Loosen the screw (counter clockwise) that holds the wire in place. GENTLY remove the wires from the location
