MAIN MENU
The sensors and controls in the main menu vary with your controller part number and
sensors and pumps that you enable or disable.
The main menu auto-groups sensors with the pumps that they control, so you will find the
menu order changing when you modify a pH sensor from controlling an ON/OFF pump
connected to Relay #1 to a frequency controlled pump connected to output #5.
Where are Sensors, Solenoids, Valves & Pumps Connected
You may modify the names of sensors, meters, flowswitches and pumps but the controller
tags each input with a letter A to F and each output with a number 1 to 5 representing where
each is wired so you can locate each I/O within the controller enclosure.
Inputs A, to F have wiring terminals on the lower left side of the controller board.
A is the pH sensor, labeled +pH- (where ‘+’ is the center conductor & ‘-‘ is the shield)
B is the ORP sensor, labeled +ORP-.
C is a temperature sensor labeled RED & BLK & used for the 10mV/K sensor.
D is a Langelier-Ryznar calculated input & does not require wiring terminals
E is sensor header flowswitch, labeled FS & ground.
F is an assignable contact set, defaulted to monitoring the recirculation pump & labeled RC &
ground. The adjacent +12 terminal is used if input F is used for a paddlewheel or turbine
water meter.
Terminals for relay outputs 1 to 3 are located on the right hand side of the circuit board.
They are ON/OFF power relays that switch 120 or 230VAC to pumps & solenoids.
The AC load connections are labeled, P1, P2 & R3 for outputs 1 to 3 with state indicated by
green LEDs.
Terminals for outputs 4 & 5 are located to the right of the Ethernet jack & are labeled A4B
and A5B. Outputs 4 & 5 are electronic switches configurable as frequency controlled pumps
or dry contact, DO outputs and thermally fused to 24VDC & 250mA with state indicated by
red LEDs

FREQUENCY CONTROLLED PUMPS
DCM200 controllers combine the 3 ON/OFF controls with 2 frequency controls.
Depending on your feed application, frequency controlled pumps may deliver more accurate feed,
easier to understand setpoints and fed volume tracking, without increasing pump cost.
Frequency controls may be new to you:

The controller knows the pump type connected to output ‘5’ and its rated maximum SPM.
Pumps of varying SPM and ml/stroke rating may be controlled at the same time.
In this example, the red ‘A5B’ indicating LED on the lower controller board flashes at the pump
stroke rate. As the feed rate approaches zero, the time between flashes increases.
Any sensor may be used to frequency control any pump connected to outputs ‘4’ or ‘5’
delivering proportional control without using 4-20mA controlled pumps.
Controls inherit the setpoint units and resolution from the controlling sensor.

Sidebar:
Feed Limits are times for pumps & solenoids controlled by relays 1 to 3 and
volumes for frequency controlled outputs 4 and 5.
Set the limits so that worst-case operation on the hottest day or highest bio-load load will not trip
the limit, avoiding nuisance alarms. In more critical applications, run the limit close to actual
operating volume or time & use the limit alarms to flag atypical system operation.
Typically you are only concerned with either the Actuation or Day limit.
Examples:
Oxidant feeds usually use the Actuation limit to prevent overfeeds & to detect loss of feed, setting
the Day limit so it never trips.
Acid feeds would use both Actuation and Day limits since different fault types trip each limit
alarm.

Similarly, a pH sensor can be used to control
both Acid & Caustic chemical pumps.

Pump Type:
If you select one of the 6 built-in ProMinent pumps, the feed volume mL/stroke and maximum
frequency are correctly and automatically assuming a nominal 40psi feed line pressure.
If you select ‘Other’ as a pump type, you’ll need to provide both the nominal mL/stroke and
maximum stroke rate. Pumps with maximum stroke rates from 50 SPM to 400 SPM are supported
by the controller.
Relay Controls:
Frequency controlled pumps may be switched ON/OFF by one of the controller’s
relays ‘1’ to ‘3’. Disconnect and remove the frequency control cable and plug
the pump power cord into the controller.
This is not the best use for a frequency controlled pump but if you need more
than the controller’s four frequency controls, it’s an option.

Single Point Calibration: All sensors can be single point calibrated. Measure a grab sample from
the sensor installation line and calibrate the sensor based on the grab sample. It’s the simplest,
most repeatable method.
Aquatics systems, setpoint control so that the pH or ORP is controlled within a narrow range,
allowing simple, single point calibration.
Process control and monitoring only sites which may operate over a wide sensor range benefit
from 2-point calibration.

Fault Cause varies with sensor type.
ORP: Verify sensor cable not shortened & firmly connected. Verify not visibly fouled. If stream
contains organics, clean with alcohol or solvent. If stream high in iron or copper the sensor’s
platinum surface reads low and responds slowly & requires strong acid stripping.
pH: Verify solution ground in sensor header connected & excess pH sensor cable coiled at
sensor, not in enclosure. Verify sensor cable not shortened & firmly connected. Then replace if no
recovery after Factory Reset. pH sensor life decreases with handling and temperature extremes.
Temperature: Verify cabling color-coding correct and sensor wires firmly connected. Inspect

Reset Alarms: Section 1.2 Clear Alarms resets the Delay on Alarm time
If the Delay on Alarm is set to zero minutes and the sensor is above the High Alarm or below the
Low Alarm, the sensor alarm will immediately re-trip.
Alarms when OFF Line:
If the sensor installation piping drains or siphons when the system turns OFF and a sensor alarm
results, install a check valve on the sensor line.
A check valve will prevent alarms but more importantly will prevent wet-dry cycles from depositing
on sensing surfaces, causing calibration problems and shortening sensor life.

Offset Adjust is the value required to make the displayed
pH, ORP or temperature
match your last calibration.
Diagnostic cont.
Offset Adjust
6.8960
Default Offset is the Offset after a Factory Reset.
pH & ORP sensors with offsets remote from the default
offset will not usually track & have failed, contaminated or
fouled.
Defualt Offset
7.0000
Measured Level is the sensor voltage
measured by the controller. Varies with sensor type.
Useful when diagnosing non-tracking sensors.
Measured Level
44.3 mV
Example: 44.3 mV x 0.0170 Gain + 6.896 Offset = 7.65 pH
The pH Sensor value displayed on the previous page.
Sidebar:
Offset & Default Offset
When you calibrate a pH, ORP or temperature sensor, the controller adjusts
the OFFSET to make your measured value match the displayed value.
Note above that the actual pH sensor OFFSET is not the Default.
Gain & Default Gain
When you two point calibrate a pH sensor, the controller adjusts both OFFSET and GAIN.
Measured Level:
pH sensors have a well defined mV to pH relationship.
Example pH7 = 0mV, pH10=176 mV and pH4 = -176 mV.
Displayed sensor value = (GAIN x Measured Level ) + OFFSET.
Using this simple equation, you can directly modify the OFFSET & GAIN to get a desired display.
This is seldom done, but it’s convenient for some unusual sensor types.

If we’ve been averaging 5750 and today at noon we’ve measured
Volume today = 9860 Gallons, why the increase?
Meter Alarms: Low Alarm
The Low Alarm for water meters only trips at midnight if the meter has not exceeded the
Low Alarm volume. Set Low Alarms = 0 to prevent alarms @ midnight.
Use Low Alarm to flag sites that have not made-up.
Meter Alarms: High Alarm
The High Alarm for water meters trips when the meter exceeds the High Alarm volume.
Set High Alarms higher than the volume expected @ highest load
to prevent nuisance alarms OR close to actual usage to flag you on increased load..
Set High Alarms on feed verify meters to flag you on increased usage.
Note; clearing a water meter High Alarm without adjusting the High Alarm level
will immediately trip another alarm on the meter.

Default alarm times are set so that contact sets won’t alarm unless user configured.
It’s unlikely that you would set both alarms on any one contact set but the ability
to alarm both ON & OFF states gives you a lot of application flexibility.
ON Time Alarm:
If the pressure switch on your RO or side-stream filter shows high pressure for more than 30
minutes, you’d like to log an alarm.
No Flow Alarm:
If you had a system that typically runs 24/7 you’d want to alarm on a flowswitch
that has no flow since it indicates that the sensor or injection line is blocked
or inadvertently valved OFF.
If you expected a switch to trip or a contact set to close daily when an event
or action occurred, you’d want an alarm if it did not occur.

Metric Inputs:
Temperature inputs are converted to Centigrade using the default offset
and gain for each of the thermal input type.
If you switch back to U.S. units, temperatures are converted to Fahrenheit using the

Water meter units default to ‘L’iters not ‘G’allons.
Metric Outputs:
Pumped volumes are reported in mL & Liters.
Timed event volumes are in Liters and not Gallons.

5. Data Logging
5.1
Overview
The DCM200 logs all sensor, flowswitch & meter values & state and all pump-valve-solenoid ON
times or fed volumes & status at a user set interval every 1 to 60 minutes.
The 24,000 record log therefore has time span of 16.6 days @ a 1 minute rate to 1000 days @ a
60 minute logging rate.
There are several ways to download the DCM200 data log and to generate reports.
1. LAN Connected DCM200 Controllers
1A: Run ProMinent’s Trackster app on a local site PC.
1B: Use a VPN or cell EVDO modem to remotely access the data log via Trackster
1C: Set the E-mail out to send an hourly log file to ProMinent’s dedicated E-mail server.
Then connect to [Needs site link] for reporting. Also provides E-mails on alarm.
2. Stand-alone DCM200 Controllers
Insert a USB flash drive into the DCM200 USB socket and your selected log download
size will auto-upload. Transfer the upload file to ProMinent’s app @ [Needs site link]
for reporting
Log files are compacted, CSV (comma separated variable) delimited text files, structured to be
read by an application but also human readable. Log files are named ‘DxxxLyyy’ where xxx = last
3 digits of controller serial number and yyy = day of year from 1 to 365.
5.2
USB Flash Drive Log Upload
HP v125w flash drives are both SCSI and USB 2.0 compatible and can be written by the DCM200.
Other flash drives may or may not be compatible. The DCM200 will detect an incompatible flash
drive on insertion into the DCM200 USB connector.
1. Insert the Flash Drive
If the DCM200 cannot read or write the flash drive, you’ll view an error message.
2. Auto-Upload
Log upload starts automatically.
Keypad is locked during upload but control continues.
Do not browse during log upload.
LCD display alternates between the current sensor values & the record# uploading
with record number counting down to zero.
If you have requested more records than the log holds, you get all of the log.
3. Remove the Flash Drive
Upload Complete Remove Drive LCD displays on completion.
