GENERAL
Introduction
Standard Mode
Computerized Electronic Controllers such as the Platinum advance the Producer’s ability
to grow high quality poultry by accurately controlling the environment. Instead of struggling
with individual thermostats for heat zones and ventilation, the Platinum brings it all together
into one convenient place … with great accuracy.
Simplicity and Ease of Use are important benefits of Standard Mode. Every grower will
understand the operation where each fan and heater has its own on and off temperature.
The light and feed clocks are easy to understand and apply. In standard mode, the
Platinum provides simple alternate methods to help producers who find the more advanced
Cool Pad methods too difficult.
The Platinum provides a variety of Management and History utilities. You can choose from
simple overviews, or if you wish, fully detailed by the minute records of minimum,
maximum and average temperatures for each individual sensor. The unique Table of
Events is one of the most liked Histories in the Platinum. It records the moment of every
significant action taken by the Platinum and, optionally, its operator.
Communication software is available to customers who wish to access their Platinum
controllers from their home or personal computers at ROTEM’s website, www.rotem.com.
ROTEM provides technical support on the website, as well as through the large dealer and
agent network.
This volume describes the Standard Mode operation of the Platinum. For greater
performance, you can opt to use the more advanced Precision Mode, which you will find in
the next volume.

Minimum Vent Timer
This option allows the user to set the timer of minimum vent. There are three primary
setups for the Minimum Vent Timer which is defined through the INSTALL | SETUP menu.
In the INSTALL | SETUP menu the setup for the Minimum Vent Timer can be defined.
Below is the factory default of a House using powered minimum ventilation and no
Natural Ventilation.

Natural Ventilation:
YES
YES
• Day: Set growth day.
• Fans (sec): Set the time (seconds) defining the cycle for when the fans are ON/OFF.
• Curtains (%): Set the percentage of minimum vent opening curtains. During minimum
vent, the curtains will remain closed, but if the ‘Natural Temp’ is reached, then the
curtain goes from closed to at least the minimum value that has been set ('Min' column).
NOTICE: When the controller reaches natural ventilation (according to the temperature
defined in the CONTROL | Temperature Curve), all the curtains open to the
minimum percentage. Every curtain is independent and can be either closed
or opened according to its temperature, but cannot open above the Maximum
set value.

• Day: Set growth day.
• Open (sec): Set the amount of seconds for curtains to open.
• Close (min): Set the amount of minutes for curtains to be closed.
• Position (%): Set percentage for curtain position; minimum % and maximum %.
NOTICE: Cycle occurs when values are set both to 'Open' and 'Close'. Whereas the controller
closes at first and only then opens the "allowed" curtains (See HELP | SET).

Minimum Vent cycle (defined in previous screen) or No to remain closed.
• Tunnel curtain Min. Vent cycle: Select Yes if the curtain defined as Tunnel operates
with no fans. Otherwise, select No.
(YES means it participates in the Purge, NO means it does not. Usually tunnel curtains are set
to cooperate with natural curtains in Natural mode)
NOTICE: If no fans are set, and power ventilation does not exist, minimum ventilation is
executed by curtains.

• Static Pressure During Tunnel: Select YES or NO for using Static Pressure control
when in Tunnel mode.
• Transitional Tunnel: Select YES or NO for using tunnel inlets when static pressure is
high and vents are already at 100%
• MinVent Using: Select Vent=0 or Curtain=1 for controlling static pressure when in
minimum ventilation.
• Emergency S. Press. Delay (sec.): Length of time the Platinum waits before taking
emergency action when static pressure remains above the high pressure alarm setting.
Note that chronologically it is important to open and go to the next setting.
• Curtain Position in Emergency Static Pressure %: Set the position the currents
should go to in an emergency pressure situation.
• Min Tunnel Curtain Level (%): When using static pressure in tunnel mode, tunnel inlet
opens at least this far in tunnel mode.
• Min Tunnel Curtain % to Start Fan: Set a value that serves as a minimum to begin fan
operation in tunnel mode.
• Vent Motor Slow/Fast: Define whether the engine used is slow or fast. For full
movement within 60 seconds or less, it is considered to be fast=1, and more than 60
seconds is slow=0.
• Time to produce S. Pressure (sec): How many seconds are needed for static
pressure to stabilize when fan cycle is on. Correction of the first pressure value will be
done according to this value.
