1.1. Surge Protection
NOTE:
Heliodyne requires that all Delta-T Pro controllers sold after August 15, 2014
be installed with a surge protection device between the building power
supply and the controller.
We advise owners of older controllers to install surge protection devices as
well.
The surge protection device must be UL listed as a surge protector or surge
suppressor. It is not required for the device to filter noise or conducted
electromagnetic interference.
Appropriate surge protectors may be obtained from Heliodyne. If you obtain
another commercially-available surge protector, be sure that the device is
marked as a surge protector or surge suppressor. It is not required that the
device include a circuit breaker or an ON / OFF switch.
Note that hardware stores provide 6-way outlets with circuit breakers that do
not provide surge protection. This is not sufficient protection for your Delta-T
Pro controller.
Surge protection devices are not required for DTT-84, DTT-94, and other
related Delta-T Standard controllers that do not have computing modules
(RCMs) included.
1.2.

2.2.
Use the Delta T Pro
Discovery Tool to look
for the Delta T Pro
controller.
This application
requires Windows.
For alternate
methods of
completing setup, see
Step 2.5 or Step 4.14.
If the controller appears
on the list, click on the
controller in the list and
then click Open Web
Interface. Continue to
Step 2.8.
If the controller does
not appear on the list
and you have not
connected the Delta T
Pro to the Internet by
enabling Infrastructure
Mode, continue to
Section 4.
If your Delta T Pro Wi-Fi
or Delta T Pro Lite
controller does not
appear on the list and
does not appear
wirelessly in ad-hoc
mode, continue to step
2.3.
If your Delta T Pro
controller is not on the
list and will not connect
to your computer in AdHoc mode (Step 4.1 for
Ethernet, Step 4.2 for
wireless), either:
a.
The Delta T Pro
Discovery Tool is
not allowed to
function by the
local network. Go

2.3.
Test the Wi-Fi signal
strength by placing your
laptop near the Delta-T
Pro Wi-Fi controller.
If connection problems
are not due to weak WiFi signal, go to section
3 to Reset the Delta T
Pro network settings.
If the Wi-Fi signal is too
weak, you must find a
way to provide strong
Wi-Fi signal at this
location.
If only one bar is highlighted in the Wi-fi signal strength symbol, or if no bars
are highlighted, the wi-fi signal may be too weak.
If required, contact your
Internet Service
Provider (i.e. AT&T,
Comcast, or the local IT
administrator) for
information about
providing strong Wi-Fi
signal to your Delta T
Pro controller. Then go
to Step 2.
2.4.
In case of problems
with the Delta T Pro
Discovery Tool:
You may need to ask
the local IT authority to
allow the program to
work.
See the notes at right for
a technical description of
what the Delta T Pro
Discovery Tool attempts
to do on a network.
You may connect to your
Delta T Pro controller
without the Delta T Pro
Discovery Tool. Either:
a.
Use a Static IP
address, Step 4.13.
Or…
b.
Use your router’s
interface to find the
assigned IP
address. Step 2.5.
The Delta T Pro Discovery Tool uses a UDP socket on port 2362, with multicast
IP on 224.0.5.128.
Some network security settings will not allow communication through port
2362 or multicast IP. In this case, you must disable the security settings in
your router that restrict these actions.
Some networks must be intentionally set to allow communication through port
2362 or multicast IP. In this case, you must specifically allow these actions in
the router security settings.
Go to step 2.10.

You can identify the
Delta-T Pro controller
by its MAC address. It
always begins with:
00:90:c2:__:__:__
Note: 169 . 254 . 148 . 50 is the IP address that the Delta T Pro uses when it
Once you find the Delta
T Pro controller on the
router’s DHCP client
table, take note of the
Delta T Pro IP address.
Network routers typically assign IP addresses in
the format : 192 . 168 . XXX . XXX
is working in Ad-Hoc mode. Refer to Step 4.6 for more information.
MAC addresses are in the format:
12 : 34 : 56 : 78 : 9a : bc

local IT Administrator).
The Delta T Pro communicates with the Heliodyne Monitoring Server at
67.221.235.20, in St. Louis MO, using outgoing and incoming communication
through port 9999.
Some network security settings will not allow communication through port
9999 or communications to the IP address 67.221.235.20. In this case, you
must disable the security settings in your router that restrict these actions.
Some networks must be intentionally set to allow communication through port
9999 or communications to the IP address 67.221.235.20. In this case, you
must specifically allow these actions in the router security settings.
If you are authorized to
change the router’s
security settings, use
the router’s interface to
make the necessary
changes.
See the notes at right
for a technical
description of what the
Delta T Pro controller
attempts to do on the
network.

The Local Gateway IP address is the IP address of the Internet network router
to which you will connect your Delta-T Pro controller.
You may find this number printed on your router in the format
192.168.XXX.XXX. It may also be called “Default gateway” or “Router IP
address”.
The Local Available Static IP is an address that you will assign for your Delta T
Pro controller.
This is chosen from a range of available IP addresses such as
192.168.100.50 through 192.168.100.99. In this example, all the
numbers beginning with 192.168.100 and ending in .50, .51, .52, … .98,
and .99 are acceptable IP addresses.
NOTE: DO NOT ASSIGN THE SAME STATIC IP ADDRESS TO MORE THAN
ONE CONTROLLER ON THE SAME NETWORK.
The Subnet Mask is assigned by your local router. Many routers use
255.255.255.0 as the Subnet Mask.
You may find the Subnet Mask printed on the outside of your router or
by navigating your web browser to the IP address of the local router.
Please consult the operating guide for your router or contact your Internet

Heliodyne has found that the following configurations work consistently to
allow you to connect to your Delta-T Pro in Infrastructure Mode.
All IP addresses automatic. If your network has the capability to
automatically assign IP addresses, activate this option on your laptop and also
on the Delta-T Pro Controller (Step 4.15 – 4.17).
All IP addresses configured by user. Obtain unique IP addresses for your
laptop and for your Delta-T Pro controller from your network IT administrator.
Assign addresses to your laptop according to Step 5.11, and to your Delta-T
Pro controller according to Step 4.14.
5.11.
Check Laptop IP Settings.
Infrastructure Mode Only
Find your computer’s IP address according to Step 5.13.
If your computer’s IP address begins with:
169.254.___.___ then your
computer will not connect to your Delta-T Pro controller via the network in
Infrastructure Mode.
Make sure that the IP address and subnet mask for your laptop are in the same
format as the Delta-T Pro controller.
See the table below for typical network IP Address formats and corresponding
subnet masks.
X indicates values that are either chosen by the network IT administrator or
assigned automatically by the DHCP server.
Typical Network (Intranet) IP Addresses
Corresponding Subnet Mask
10.XXX.XXX.XXX
255.0.0.0
172.XXX.XXX.XXX

5.12. Controller does not connect
to wireless network:
Unsupported Wi-Fi settings
Q: I am able to connect to my Delta-T Pro Wi-Fi or Delta-T Pro Lite Wi-Fi in
Ad-Hoc mode (Section 4), and I have a good signal with my wireless
router. But…
Whenever I click “Update Network Settings” (Step 4.14 or Step 4.17) the
controller does not begin working in Infrastructure Mode (Section 2) and
after a few minutes the controller appears again in Ad-Hoc Mode.
A: Your controller cannot connect to your wireless router.
In some cases,
the router’s wireless configuration is preventing the controller from
connecting. Please review the following list of supported configurations
for Wi-Fi networks:
SUPPORTED BAND: 2.4 GHz
UNSUPPORTED BAND: 5 GHz
SUPPORTED SECURITY SETTINGS:
WPA-TKIP
WPA- Personal
WPA2 – CCMP
WPA2 – AES
WPA2 – PSK
UNSUPPORTED SECURITY SETTINGS:
WPA-Enterprise
WEP
Combined WPA/WPA2
Anything not shown above under “supported settings”
You must provide a wireless connection with one of the SUPPORTED security
configurations in order to connect your Delta-T Pro to the Internet.
To determine the security configuration of your router, you may look at the
physical router. Many Internet Service Providers put a sticker on the
router that shows the security type and provides other information.
If you cannot determine the security configuration for your router, please
contact your Internet Service Provider (AT&T, Comcast, etc.) or the local IT
administrator. If the router has an UNSUPPORTED security configuration:
If you are the network administrator for the router, you may choose to
change the settings to enable a SUPPORTED configuration.
If you are not the network administrator, please inquire with your
Internet Service Provider or the facility’s IT Administrator about
providing a wireless network with a SUPPORTED security
configuration.
If you cannot provide Internet connection to the Delta-T Pro Controller, you
may commission the Delta-T Pro with all the appropriate System and
Operation settings but you will not be able to view data on the Internet.
Your Wi-Fi Delta-T Pro will remember up to 30 days of data in case of a lapse
of Internet connection. After this time operation data will be lost, but
like a water or gas meter, your controller always maintains the total
production sum.

5.16. Controller Web Interface
Garbled or Ugly:
Network Transmission Errors
Q: When I navigate to the controller web interface, a web page loads but the
appearance is unusual. Pictures are missing or in incorrect places, and I can’t
access everything I want to access.
A: Network transmission errors may cause a messy appearance on the
webpage. Please hit ‘refresh’ on your browser to load the page again.
Some network transmission errors are caused by two controllers improperly
sharing the same IP address. Please make sure that there is only one
controller at the IP address you are using. See step 4.13 for instructions on
properly setting IP addresses for Delta-T Pro controllers.
DO NOT ASSIGN THE SAME STATIC IP ADDRESS TO MORE THAN ONE
CONTROLLER. (This does not apply to 169.254.148.50, the default IP address
for connecting in AD-HOC Mode.)
If the webpage always loads the same way, with the same errors on the
screen after refreshing the page two times, the problem may sometimes be
resolved by reprogramming the firmware on the controller. Consult the Pro
Controller Updating Instructions, available online at Heliodyne controller
downloads for more information.

Troubleshooting
6.1. Flow Meter Not Functioning:
Problem-solving guide
Q: I doubt that the flow measurement by the Delta-T Pro controller is correct.
How can I verify that the flow is correct?
A: To determine if your flow meter is reporting a valid flow rate, please
perform the following steps:
1. For Grundfos VFS flow meters:
a. Verify that the controller is configured for the same flow
range as the flow meter that was installed. You can see the
range for your Grundfos VFS flow meter printed on the little
white label on the black body of the sensor.
You will find the message “VFS XX-YY V2.0 FLOW” where
XX is the minimum and YY is the maximum, in liters per
minute.
In the Delta-T Pro settings, under Sensors & Metering,
“Grundfos Flow & Temp Sensor” should be selected. The
minimum and maximum should match the numbers on the
sensor itself.
b. If the flow sensor at this location has never reported a flow
rate other than 0, or if it only reports flow briefly before
returning to 0, then the system may have air in the fluid.
Grundfos VFS flow sensors will not measure flow properly
when air bubbles are present in the fluid. Please refer to the
appropriate Heliodyne installation guide for instructions on
removing air from your system.
c. If the sensor range is configured properly, and air bubbles are
not present in the fluid, then your sensor may not be
functional. Contact Heliodyne for an evaluation.
2. For flow meters other than Grundfos VFS:
a. Please refer to the installation guide for your flow meter to
make sure it was installed correctly.
b. In the Delta-T Pro settings, under Sensors & Metering, “Pulse
Flow Meter” should be selected. Enter the number for Pulses
/ Gal that is appropriate for your system according to the
sensor’s installation guide.

properly:
Problem Solving Guide
Q: My solar controller is installed according to the Delta-T Pro Installation
Guide and powered-on, but the pumps do not start up when they’re supposed
to. What’s going on?
A: Any of the following conditions can result in pumps not operating
normally:
1. Delta-T not met.
a. Use the controller’s web interface in Infrastructure Mode
(Section 2) or Ad-Hoc Mode (Section 4) to view the controller’s
current temperature readings.
b. If the difference between T1 and T2 (or the average of T2 and
T3) is less than 5 degrees F, pumps will not run.
c. If the difference between T1 and T2 (or the average of T2 and
T3) is between 5 degrees F and 18 degrees F then the pumps
will not turn on if they are off, but they will stay on.
d. Note: the values 5 degrees F and 18 degrees F are usercustomizable. See the current settings under Settings ---Operation ----- ON DIFFERENTIAL and OFF DIFFERENTIAL.
2. ON-OFF-AUTO switch set to ON or OFF instead of AUTO. See Step 6.9.
3. Operation mode set to OVERRIDE instead of automatic. Refer to Step 6.10.
4. Valves are shut off on the pump’s plumbing circuit, resulting in stopped
flow.
5. HCOM only: advanced sequence results in pump not operating. Refer to
Step 6.14.
6. Temperature readings faulty. Refer to Step 6.3.
7. Pumps may not be operating properly. Refer to Step 6.5 to perform the
Basic Pump Function Test.
8. If using Grundfos VFS flow sensor to detect flow: the flow meter may not
be functioning properly. See Step 6.1.
9. Relays not functioning properly. Refer to Step 6.8.
10. Minor electronic damage to Delta-T Pro Controller. Refer to step 5.4.

6.3. Temperature readings faulty:
Problem Solving Guide
Q: I have installed temperature sensors and the readings are missing,
incorrect, or do not make sense.
A: Any of the following conditions can result in missing, incorrect, or
nonsense temperature sensor readings:
1. If the reading is -999.9 or -99.9 or 0.0:
a. Actual measured temperature above 315 deg. F.
b. Temperature sensor disconnected.
c. Temperature sensor wiring short-circuited between the two
leads.
d. Temperature sensor not functional. See Step 6.11.
2.
If the reading is NOT -999.9 or -99.9 or 0.0:
a. Poor thermal conduction to temperature sensor.
b. Collectors: Temperature sensor not installed within 6” of the
collector outlet.
c. Collectors: Temperature sensor installed on a sub-array that
has a different flow rate than other arrays.
The temperature of an array is depenendent upon the flow
rate; if the flow rate per collector is different between
different arrays in a single system, the sensors will not
measure accurately.
d. Temperature sensor not protected from wind, cool air, rain,
etc.
e. Delta-T Pro temperature input no longer functional. See Step
6.13.

6.4. Basic Controller Function Test
CAUTION:
Electrical contacts with 120 VAC electricity are exposed to technicians during
this operation. (230 VAC at some locations outside the continental U.S.)
ONLY qualified technicians using appropriate personal protective equipment
(PPE) may perform this operation.
1. Remove the cover from your controller to reveal the circuitry and relays of
the circuit board.
2. Provide power to your controller.
3. Switch controller to ‘ON’. Note green LEDs that light up near the relays.
4. Switch controller to ‘OFF’.
5. Now switch the controller to ‘AUTO.’
6. Did a green LED turn on? You would hear an audible ‘click’. If Yes then
continue to step 13.
7. If there is no change when you switch to ‘AUTO’ please continue to step 8.
8. Set the controller to ‘AUTO’. To send a ‘collector hot’ signal to the
controller: Remove the cable terminal from the T1 place on the Delta-T Pro.
Do not remove the connection to sensor T2. Short-circuit the two leads of
T1. You may use a screwdriver, paper clip, or any metallic object.
Note: There is a 5V DC electric potential on thermistor connections
including T1 and T2.
9. Did a green LED turn on? You would hear an audible ‘click’.
10. If one of the relays turns on when you short-circuit T1, then the controller
PASSES THE BASIC FUNCTION TEST.
11. If the LEDs and relays do not change when you short-circuit T1 then
continue to step 12.
12. Perform short-circuit at T1 according to Step 8 and keep the short-circuit in
place until the end of the test.
13. Set the controller to ‘AUTO’. To send a ‘storage hot’ signal to the controller:
Perform the short-circuit procedure of Step 8 at the T2 terminal which is
adjacent to the T1 terminal.
14. Did a green LED turn off? You would hear an audible ‘click’.
15. If one of the relays turns off when you short-circuit T2, then the controller
PASSES THE BASIC FUNCTION TEST. Otherwise, continue to step 16.
16. Use a voltmeter to test the continuity of T2.
If T2 is an open circuit (no connection) then bring a thermistor to the
controller and connect it without any extension cable. Go to step 8.
Step 8
If T2 is a closed circuit (connection good) then the controller fails the basic
function test. Please contact Heliodyne to obtain a replacement.
For additional verification that your controller is not working properly,
check the computing module lights as shown in Step 6.6.
ADVANCED USERS: You may attempt to restore functionality by
reprogramming the Delta-T Pro controller using the programming cable.

6.5. Basic Pump Function Test
Q: I doubt that my pump is spinning when power is applied to it, and I wish to
verify this without using a flow meter. Is there another way to see if the pump
spins when it is ON and powered up?
A: To perform the Basic Pump Function Test to see if the pump spins when it
is ON and powered-up, please follow the following steps.
Warning: The ON-OFF-AUTO switch is located on an electrical panel with
unprotected conductors at high voltage. Only operate the ON-OFF-AUTO
switch with the power to the Delta-T Pro controller disconnected.
1. Use the ON-OFF-AUTO switch or the Relay Override Panel in the web
interface to force the pump to turn OFF.
2. Look at a pressure sensor on the pump’s fluid.
3. Use the ON-OFF-AUTO switch or the Relay Override Panel in the web
interface to force the pump to turn ON.
4. Now force the pump to turn OFF again.
5. If the pressure sensor shows a change in pressure when the pump
changes from OFF to ON and OFF again, then the pump is spinning
when it is ON and powered-up.
Note: The change in pressure may be slight, i.e. less than 5 psi, but it
must be sustained as long as the pump is running.

6.8. Pumps do not activate:
Relay not functional
Q: I have performed the tests shown in this manual and my controller
appears to perform solar control logic, but the pumps still do not turn on.
The green LED near the relays activate properly when the ON-OFF-AUTO
switch is set to ON and also when the switch is set to AUTO.
A: To determine if your problem is due to relay failure, please test the relay
for both CLOSED and OPEN operation.
CLOSED operation test: place the ON-OFF-AUTO switch to the ON position.
Use an electrical tester to test the AC voltage at the output for each relay
used for your system.
Verify that a green LED comes on near each relay. If the output from each
relay is 110 VAC then the relay has proper CLOSED operation.
OPEN operation test: place the ON-OFF-AUTO switch to the OFF position. Use
an electrical tester to test the AC voltage at the output for each relay used for
your system.
Verify that a green LED goes off near each relay. If the output from each relay
is less than 1 VAC then the relay has proper CLOSED operation.
If either OPEN or CLOSED operation is not functioning properly then “Relay
not functional” is the cause for faulty pump operation.
Some customers who do not wish to replace their Delta-T Pro Wifi or
Delta-T Pro Ethernet controller have used an alternate relay that is
functional to replace the relay that has lost its function.
For more information, please refer to the Delta-T Pro Installation Guide
for the possible configurations of each relay.

6.9. Solar control not functioning
properly:
ON-OFF-AUTO switch not set
to AUTO
The Delta-T Pro controller is provided with a ON-OFF-AUTO switch on the
electrical control board. On older products, a jumper is used to select ONOFF-AUTO.
Warning: The ON-OFF-AUTO switch is located on an electrical panel with
unprotected conductors at high voltage. Only operate the ON-OFF-AUTO
switch with the power to the Delta-T Pro controller disconnected.
To enable active solar control, set the switch to AUTO.
If the switch is set to OFF, pumps or any other devices that are controlled by
Delta-T Pro control relays will always remain off.
If the switch is set to ON, pumps and all other devices that are controlled by
Delta-T Pro control relays will always remain on.
WARNING: Leaving the ON-OFF-AUTO switch set to ON disables all safety
mechanisms and could result in superheated fluid flowing from the roof to
the pumps. Many components in a typical solar thermal system are not
rated for the highest temperatures produced by the collectors.

properly:
Operation set to OVERRIDE
within the controller’s web
interface.
See note for details about
4.3._ firmware installed on
older products that use
jumpers instead of an ONOFF-AUTO switch.
The Delta-T Pro controller is provided with a web-based override for each
relay, and also for variable speed pump control.
To verify or enable normal solar control through the web interface, please use
the web interface to navigate to the Settings page (See Step 2.7).
Click “Relay Control Panel” or “Relay and Variable Speed Output Control
Panel”.
A window will appear in your web browser. Look for the words, “Clear All
Overrides”. If this appears, then at least one controller output is not
operating automatically, but was set by the user.
To restore normal solar control, click “Clear All Overrides”.
If “Clear All Overrides” does not appear, then the user has not used this
interface to override control.
Note: Firmware versions beginning in 4.3._, installed on older products having
jumpers instead of an ON-OFF-AUTO switch, will cause the controller interface
to falsely report that solar logic is being overridden by the user. This report
appears whether the controller is operating automatically or not.

6.11. Temperature readings faulty:
Temperature sensor no
longer functional
Temperature sensors provided by Heliodyne are susceptible to wear over
time, especially when used as collector temperature (T1) and when the system
stagnates.
A temperature reading of -999.9, -99.9, or 0.0 may be due to a sensor that is
no longer functional. Please use the following steps to determine whether
your sensor is functional:
1. Make sure the temperature sensor wires are connected to the Delta-T
Pro control board at the correct input.
2. Remove the temperature sensor’s wires from the Delta-T Pro
controller. Use an electrical tester to check the resistance in Ohms (Ω)
of the temperature sensor circuit which runs to the sensor and back.
a. If the circuit is OPEN, continue to item 3.
b. If the circuit is CLOSED, continue to item c.
c. Take note of the resistance of the temperature sensor circuit.
d. Compare the measurement with the resistance-temperature
chart shown at Step 6.12.
e. If the resistance makes sense for the current operating
condition, then the temperature sensor itself is functional.
Continue to item 3.
3. Make sure that the connection between the 2-conductor cable and
the temperature sensor is secure and provides good electrical
connection. If it is good continue to item 4.
4. Make sure that the connection between the 2-conductor cable and
the Delta-T Pro is secure and provides good electrical connection. If it
is good continue to item 5.
5. Disconnect the 2-conductor cable from the temperature sensor at the
location where it is installed.
a. Test the resistance across the temperature sensor.
b. Compare the measurement with the resistance-temperature
chart shown at Step 6.12.
c. If the resistance makes sense for the current operating
condition, then the temperature sensor itself is functional.
Return to Step 6.3.
d. If the resistance does not make sense for the current operating
condition, then the temperature sensor is not functional.
Continue to item 6.
e. If the resistance and temperature continues to change as long
as you are measuring it, and does not reflect the current
operating condition, the temperature sensor is not functional.
Continue to item 6.
6. Please replace the temperature sensor with a 10,000 kOhm Type 2
thermistor. You may obtain replacements from Heliodyne.

6.13. Temperature readings faulty:
Delta-T Pro temperature
input no longer functional
Q: I have performed the tests shown in this manual and my temperature
sensors are functional, but the controller operates at the wrong time or the
sensor has an incorrect reading.
A: To determine if your problem is due to temperature sensor input failure,
please follow the following steps:
1. Confirm that the temperature sensor is functional, and the circuit
connections are good, by following Step 6.11.
2. Unplug the temperature sensor from the Delta-T Pro controller.
3. If the controller reports a reading of -999.99 for the sensor, or if the
sensor disappears from the controller interface, then the controller
sensor input is functional.
4. If the controller reports a temperature other than -999.9, -99.9, or 0.0
for the temperature sensor input when nothing is connected, then
the temperature input is not functional.
a. If possible, use a different temperature input for the sensor.
b. If this problem happens to T1 or T2, or if it’s not possible to
substitute a different temperature sensor input, please
contact Heliodyne to obtain a replacement controller.

6.14. HCOM: Advanced Operation
Sequence
HCOM pumps are controlled independently by the Delta-T Pro controller. The
controller determines both ON/OFF status and the speed setting of the solar
pump and the DHW (domestic hot water) pump.
The following describes the sequence of operation for an HCOM.
1. ON / OFF logic when pumps are OFF:
a. If T2 and T3 are both less than the Tank High Limit Shutoff
Temperature:
If the differential temperature between the collector outlet
temperature (T1) and the storage tank low temp (T2) is above
the “ON DIFFERENTIAL” setpoint [default 18° F], the solar pump
will turn ON, but not the DHW pump.
b. When the solar pump is running: if the difference between T1
(collector outlet) and T7 (HCOM solar loop heat exchanger inlet)
is greater than 5 degrees F, the DHW pump will remain
OFF.
c. When the solar pump is running: if the difference between T1
(collector outlet) and T7 (HCOM solar loop heat exchanger inlet)
is 5 degrees F or less, the DHW pump will turn ON.
2. ON / OFF logic when pumps are ON:
a. If the differential temperature between the collector outlet
temperature (T1) and the DHW storage tank low (T2) is below
the “OFF DIFFERENTIAL” setpoint [default 5° F], both the solar
and DHW pumps will turn OFF.
b. If solar storage tank temperatures (T2 or T3) reach the Tank
High Limit Shutoff Temperature [default 160 degrees F], both
the solar loop and DHW potable water loop pumps will turn
OFF.
3. Variable Speed logic:
a. The solar pump operates according to differential temperature
T7-T6.
b. DHW pump operates according to differential temperature T5T4.
c. At 20 degrees F difference or higher: flow set to maximum.
d. Between 10-20 degrees F difference: controlled voltage step up
sequence centered at 15 degrees difference.
e. Between 10 degrees F and 5 degrees F difference: flow set to
minimum.
