INTRODUCTION
The CARON 6030 series Environmental Test Chambers provide multiple capabilities to create
repeatable environmental conditions for numerous applications including:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Product shelf life
Stability and package testing
Light exposure and temperature evaluation studies
Electronic component burn-in
TAPPI testing
Photostability
Plant growth
Insect rearing
These chambers utilize environmentally friendly HFC refrigerant and CFC-Free insulation, and is
designed to meet NEC, UL and CSA standards for safety and performance.
Controlling the chamber temperature requires the ability to heat and cool. Heating of the chamber
is achieved by duct heaters, and cooling is achieved by a direct expansion/vapor compression
refrigeration heat exchanger mounted in the duct, combined with horizontal airflow pattern which
creates better air uniformity, and temperature control.
A bi-modal controller (single input - dual output) is necessary for proper control of the system that
can drive the process variable in either direction. The refrigeration system uses a single
condensing unit that will allow independent cooling and dehumidification. This insures continuous,
safe and reliable operation of the compressor even when no cooling is required. This also
prevents the compressor from rapid cycling “on” and “off” which shortens the compressor life.

CHAMBER CONSTRUCTION
The chamber is a custom designed sheet metal package. Exterior metal is Cold Rolled Steel
(CRS) with a powder coat finish for corrosion resistance. The chamber interior is constructed
from 304 stainless steel, with all joints seam welded. The chamber face connecting the interior to
the exterior is magnetic stainless steel providing a sealing surface for the magnetic gasketed
exterior door as well as improved corrosion resistance. The control panel housing is constructed
from aluminum with a powder coat finish. The chamber is insulated on all sides with fiberglass
insulation rated at 70°C.
SHELF CONSTRUCTION (STANDARD)
The chamber shelves are polished, 304 stainless steel wire formed.
REFRIGERATION SYSTEM
A bi-modal refrigeration system allows for independent heating and cooling. This system is now
used to replace the less sophisticated type of refrigeration system which used heaters to buck
against the refrigeration system and assist in temperature control. The new design allows the
chamber to respond faster and controls the chamber more efficiently at a constant temperature.
CONTROL SYSTEM
The control system is comprised of a single channel, dual output controller. On/off outputs are
used to drive heaters and cooling solenoids.
SAFETIES
The CARON 6030 Series has a triple redundancy safety system. A temperature alarm in the
temperature controller sounds an alarm to alert the end user to the condition. A thermal snap
disk, high limit and a thermal fuse are provided to prevent run-away heating of the unit. The
compressor and blower motors are both protected by thermal overloads. The Condenser fan
motor is impedance protected.

INSTALLATION
Unpacking
This product has been completely tested, cleaned and packed for shipment. Carefully remove all
packing material. Please examine the chamber completely. Should any damage be found, notify
the delivering carrier immediately.
Report any shortages to Customer Service at 1-740-373-6809.
Chamber Location
Chamber ambient conditions 20°C to 25°C. Exceeding 25°C can result in chamber failure.
The chamber must be located in a dry, clean, and level area. Allow a 4” clearance from the back
and top of the chamber for proper air circulation and ease of installation. Locate the chamber in
an area out of direct sunlight and away from heating and cooling ducts. The 6030 chambers can
exhaust 4000 BTU/hr (1170 W) respectively into the surroundings. The figure below shows a side
view of the chamber with air vent and access port locations.
Models 6030, 6031, 6032: Tilt the unit ½ of a level’s bubble toward the back for proper water
drainage
Model 6030 Series Operations Manual Rev_W

Drain connection
Connect a 3/8” NPT drain line to the drain connection located on the lower back side of the chamber. The figure
below shows the drain connection on the back of the chamber. For proper operation the drain hose should not be
kinked or bent. It should run down from the chamber and go into an open floor drain.
Power
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!
For personal safety, this chamber must be properly grounded.
The Power Cord of this chamber is equipped with a grounded plug which mates with a
corresponding outlet to minimize the possibility of electrical shock from the chamber. CARON
recommends that the chamber have a dedicated wall outlet.

OPERATION
1. Connect the drain lines, and power cord as instructed in the INSTALLATION section of this
manual. (See Appendix C for additional drain connections. 6030 only)
2. Insert all shelf clips, and shelves. Check to see if they are properly installed.
3. Close the chamber door.
4. Install rubber stopper in access port on right side of cabinet.
5. Turn on power switch located on the control panel. This switch activates the heating unit and
temperature controller. The temperature controller will sound an alarm. The temperature alarm
will automatically reset after a few seconds.
6. *Turn on the refrigeration switch when operating at setpoints below 35°C. This switch
activates the refrigeration system.
7. Set the temperature controller to the desired setpoint. (See appendix if necessary).

8. Turn on the humidity switch. This switch activates the humidity system and the humidity
controller. (with humidity option only). Set the humidity controller to the desired setpoint. (See
appendix if necessary).
During normal refrigeration operation, a soft “clicking” sound can be heard. This sound is the
result of the solenoid control valves switching in the refrigeration system.
Chamber Loading
Air circulates through the chamber to maintain uniform conditions. When loading (putting product
into) the chamber, position samples so air can flow freely throughout the chamber. For best
temperature & humidity uniformity, keep samples away from surfaces as listed in table below. Do
not put product on the floor.

CONTROLLERS
The temperature control system is comprised of a single channel, dual output controller. On/off
outputs are used to drive heaters and cooling solenoids. An additional controller is used to
control the humidity (if that option is ordered). Both controllers are configured and tested at the
factory to ensure proper performance.
Controller operating procedures and factory default settings are listed in the Appendix. Default is
temperature display in ºC. For ºF, consult factory for details. In addition, see the separate
controller manual for more details on controller operation, menus and available settings.
Due to individual circumstances, it maybe beneficial to modify the default settings to best suit an
applications. Examples include alarm and communication settings.
NOTE: On power up, the temperature and humidity controllers allow the system one minute to
stabilize prior to turning on outputs. Therefore it is normal for the unit not to turn on heating or
cooling, or humidify for a full minute on power up regardless of set-points and cabinet conditions.
TEMPERATURE DEVIATION ALARM
All units are equipped with an alarm system that constantly monitors temperature to ensure the
user is notified if the cabinet goes into an alarm condition. Notification occurs via a RED indicator
LED and an audible alarm. Temperature alarms will occur once the alarm condition has been
present for 15 minutes. This delay is in place to avoid nuisance alarms associated with door
openings.
Example of Deviation value:
Set point = 30°C
Alarm high = 5°C
Alarm low = 3°C
∴ High Alarm = 35°C and Low Alarm = 27°C
NOTE: When powering up the chamber, if the actual interior chamber temperature varies from
the setpoint, immediately set the deviation amount to a large enough margin in order to allow the
chamber to reach the temperature setpoint. If the deviation amount is too small the alarm will
sound until the chamber is within the min / max deviation range. The temperature deviation alarm
is preset to 50°C above or below set point.
Model 6030 Series Operations Manual Rev_W

6030
Humidity System
A bi-modal humidification system allows for independent humidification and dehumidification. This
design provides control over both the humidity injection system and the dehumidification system.
This system permits the chamber to respond faster as well as controlling the chamber more
efficiently at a constant relative humidity.
The Humidity Injection System utilizes atomizers to inject moisture into the chamber to achieve
humidity levels of 98% RH. An extended low end humidity level of 20% RH is attainable due to
the configuration of the refrigeration system (limited by a minimum 4°C dew point). The atomizer
system is preferred over the boiler type system, since it will not add heat to the chamber. The
added heat causes the system to work harder to maintain temperatures, especially at lower
levels.
Humidity System Controls
The humidity system is comprised of a 1/16 DIN controller. The illustration below shows the layout
of the control panel (controller model may vary). The display panel consists of the standard
control panel, in addition a humidity switch, and a relative humidity controller. The relative
humidity controller’s unit is %RH. Refer to the appendix for controller details.

Humidity (Chromalox) Controller Calibration (for Watlow controllers, see Appendix A)
1. Remove the access panel (control panel cover 6030).
2. Find the 2” x 3” black utility box located adjacent to the wiring and in the service area.
(Behind fuse panel 6030).
3. Inside the utility box is the humidity module.
4. Slowly adjust the BOTTOM humidity calibration pot to the desired calibration point as shown
on the humidity controller readout.
Humidity Water Inlet
Model 6030: Facing the back is a water connection in the upper right hand corner. Any type of ¼
MPT fitting can be used to connect to water supply. Incoming water pressure should be regulated
to not exceed 80 PSI.
NOTE
Use only distilled or deionized water with resistivity between 50kΩ
Ω-cm & 1 MΩ
Ω-cm and pH
above 6.5. Using water outside this range will void the warranty.
Model 6030 Series Operations Manual Rev_W
16
Do not use water with chloramines. Chloramines can damage internal rubber gaskets and cause
a catastrophic leak.
The two atomizing heads are located in the interior ceiling area which inject the humidity into the
chamber.
It is also important to check and clean the humidity water inlet filter/strainer every 6 months. After
cleaning filter/strainer hand tighten bowl onto housing, overtightening bowl can cause cracks and
filter/strainer to leak
DIURNAL LIGHTING SYSTEM
The Diurnal Lighting System, also known as the Dual Setpoint/Light Cycle Timer System
Model 6032 consists of four (4) light banks, with 2 lights per bank; one light bank per shelf on 4 of
the five shelves, and a timer.
This system allows the operator to simulate Day/Night testing. The Switch will turn both light
banks on and off simultaneously as well as operate the two setpoint temperature system. The
illustration below is a layout of the control panel.
Note: For units equipped with ramping controllers, the timer maybe used to trigger certain events
but does not necessarily switch between two set points. See controller manual for details.
During operation of the Diurnal Lighting System a second setpoint can be set in both the
temperature and humidity controllers. This second setpoint will be used as the DAY setpoint, or
when the lights are on. See appendix for procedures to set the second setpoints for the
temperature and humidity controllers.
Note: When Timer/Lights switch is in “off” position the Temperature, Humidity Controllers
will default back to original setpoints SP.
Model 6030 Series Operations Manual Rev_W

TIMER
The circular timer on the lower control panel shown above is for the operation of the dual
setpoint/light cycle system. The timer is adjustable at 15 minute intervals by depressing the cams
found on the outer ring of the timer.
SETTING THE TIMER:
a) The Timer is located on the control panel as shown in the previous illustration.
b) Depress the number of cams toward the timer’s center to fit the duration of your
program.
c) Set the timer dial to reflect an entire day.
d) Turn on the Switch
LED STRIP LIGHTING
Chambers with optional LED strip lighting include a 24-hour light cycle timer. Can use with
ramping controllers but not second set point.
HEATLESS DRYER PACKAGE
The Heatless Dryer Package is designed to extend the operational limits of CARON’s Series 6000
Environmental Test Chamber to its minimum humidity control point of 2% RH and improve the
dehumidification rate of the chamber. This is accomplished by “purging” the chamber of its moist
air. The Dryer Package utilizes 90 to 100 PSI compressed air to operate.
A coalescent filter (with automatic drain) will remove small amounts of incoming moisture.
However, particles of dirt or rust, as well as large amounts of condensed moisture or oil that may
be in the compressed air line feeding the dryer must be removed from the air stream before it
enters the dryer.
CARON recommends installing a pressure gauge prior to the dryer to air in monitoring system
pressures. The flow meter shows the flow rate of dry air entering the chamber. It is adjustable by
the knob at the bottom of the meter. Maximum performance is obtained at 300 SCFH (or 5 CFM).
Operating the unit above this purge rate may decrease performance!!
On some models, a pressure regulator is installed between the tower dryers and glass flow meter
to limit the pressure into the flow meter. The regulator should be set at a maximum of 100psi.
DRYER PACKAGE INSTALLATION
a) Attach the Dryer package to the exterior chamber with the pre-drilled mounting holes and
mounting hardware. Be sure to secure each tower.
Model 6030 Series Operations Manual Rev_W

b) Attach the 3/8” ID clear tubing to the outlet of the flow meter. Secure tubing with the hose
clamp provided.
c) Connect compressed air (either from house air or other compressed air source) to the fitting
labeled “air supply inlet”.
NOTE: THE AIR SOURCE MUST BE OIL-FREE AND WATER-FREE AND FILTERED TO 10
MICRONS MINIMUM.
d) Plug in the air regulating solenoid line cord into the matching receptacle located above the
dryer mounting bracket.

at a minimum of 90 PSI and not above a maximum of 100 PSI.
To set the pressure regulator
1. Close the air flow adjustment knob
2. Set the chamber to 0% humidity (full dehumidification)
3. Adjust the pressure regulator adjustment knob to 90 psi
To set the air flow rate
1. Set the flow meter on the dryer assembly to approximately 300 SCFH. Watch the humidity
display to see that the % RH is moving down to the specified setpoint.
Model 6030 Series Operations Manual Rev_W

Allow sufficient time for the chamber to stabilize when setting up and making adjustments,
especially if the chamber has been running with high humidity levels. Running the chamber at
higher than ambient humidity levels can cause moisture to collect in all areas of the chamber
including sensors and other components. This moisture must be removed before actual tests can
proceed at accurate, lower than ambient humidity levels.
CIRCULAR CHART RECORDER,
The Honeywell DR 4300 General Purpose Circular Chart Recorder uses reliable microprocessor
operation to generate dependable pen drawn analog traces on preprinted 10-inch (250 mm)
charts.
The two-pen model (RCDR103) accepts inputs from a temperature sensor and a humidity sensor.
The single-pen model RCDR107 records temperature only.
temperature sensor is a highly accurate RTD. The humidity sensor is a Vaisala or equal which
utilizes the Humicap sensor to measure relative humidity. The recorder uses disposable fiber-tip
ink cartridges for dependable recording with minimum maintenance. The recorders are housed in
a molded case with a glass windowed, gray gasketed door which protects internal components
while allowing easy access to the chart.
Input samples are taken at a rate of 2 times every 1.3 seconds. Each sample is amplified and
then converted to a digital signal which is isolated and passed to the microprocessor. Analog and
digital filters with fixed time constraints provide input signal smoothing as required. Standard
factory set up for chart speed is 7 day operation. Refer to the Chart Recorder’s User’s Manual to
change the chart speed settings for various chart speeds.
Mount the recorder by using the already installed bracket.

The circular timer on the lower control panel is for the operation of the dual setpoint cycle system.
The timer is adjustable at 15 minute intervals by depressing the cams found on the outer ring of
the timer.
SETTING THE TIMER:
a) Timer is located on the Control Panel. Depress the number of cams toward the timer’s
center to fit duration of your program.
b) Set the timer dial to reflect an entire day.
c) Turn on the Switch marked Setpoint #2.
When the chamber is in the Second Setpoint Mode, the light will indicate Setpoint 2 Active. Also
on both the Temperature and Humidity Controller an indicator light in the lower right hand side of
the controllers will flash on SP2, and the second setpoint will be displayed on the controllers.
CONDENSATE RECIRCULATING SYSTEM: CRSY102
The Condensate Recirculating System is used in conjunction with CARON’s Series 6000 Test
Chambers, as a water delivery system. This system is typically used in facilities where a floor
drain or in-house source of distilled or deionized water are not available. The system provides
continuous, clean, filtered water to the chamber’s humidity injection system, collects and recycles
the condensate that forms in the base of the chamber. Refer to instructions with the CRSY102 for
connection details. Use fittings provided with 6030 to connect to CRSY102.

REMOTE ALARM CONTACT: ALRM202
CARON’S accessory option, ALM-202, is a remote alarm contact for connection to an external
alarm or dialing system, to signal a temperature or humidity deviation from control safety settings.
The terminal block located on the back of the unit has both N/O and N/C contacts. In the event of
an alarm condition signaled by either the temperature or humidity controller, the N/O contract will
‘close’ and the N/C contact will ‘open’. Once the alarm condition is cleared, the contacts return to
their normal conditions. When the humidity is turned ‘off’, an alarm condition is automatically
created. The diagram below shows the operating conditions for both connections:

COMPUTER COMMUNICATIONS OPTION - SFTW102
The temperature and humidity controllers are equipped with RS-485 computer communications
for remote control or data logging. It is the customer’s responsibility to provide an RS-485
communications board or RS-485 to RS-232 converter for their PC and set up the system to
accept data from the controllers. CARON can provide information about the type of RS-485
board and/or converter for your system. Terminations 11(R/T -), 12 (R/T +) and 13 (GND) located
on the back of the chamber are used to connect for communications.

DEFROST PACKAGE – DEFR201
The optional defrost timer allows the chamber to operate at low temperatures down to 0°C. When
operating the chamber with this option, it is recommended to utilize the defrost system to prevent
ice build-up on the condensing coil. The defrost time is pre-set to provide four defrost cycles
every 24 hours (once every 6 hours) with the defrost duration at 16 minutes. While the unit is in
the defrost mode, the temperature may drift up a couple degrees. To adjust timer settings remove
top cover of unit. Timer located in front right hand corner of unit.
