1.4. Main Features
Easy-to-Use Controller — With its convenient menu selectors and its large graphic
LCD screen, the PRO-VISION is certainly the
most easy-to-use temperature controller on
the market.
5 Controller Programs — The controller allows using 5 different programs to control the
room temperature. It is thus possible to activate a specific program that uses particular
temperature ­settings according to the animal
age for instance.
32 Indoor Temperature Sensors — Up to
32 temperature sensors can be connected to
the controller to obtain an accurate reading
of the average room temperature and a faster
reaction time. The controller comes with 8
basic temperature inputs and 24 additional
inputs can be added with the optional extension cards.
Natural Ventilation — This is a ventilation
mode that uses existing air currents and
natural convection to move and distribute air
through the building.
Humidity Control — The control offers many
ways to compensate for high or low humidity levels.
Control of the Air Inlet Movement — The
movement of the air inlets (sidewall vents
or tunnel inlets) can be coordinated with
the operation of the fans or according to
the pressure level. This allows the inlets to
be adjusted correctly, without the influence
of uncontrollable factors such as wind or air
from adjoining rooms.
Egg Room — In addition to controlling the
ambient temperature in the house, the PROVISION can control the temperature and
humidity conditions in an egg room. It can
also keeps a tally of the number of eggs
produced each day.

Alarm Management — The controller provides
alarms for high-low temperatures, defective
sensors and other system failures. It keeps in
memory the 75 latest alarm conditions.
Password Protection — Different passwords
levels can be enabled to restrict access to
some menus of the controller.
Backup Battery — A backup battery allows
the unit to keep time in case of a power
failure.
USB Connector — Controller backups and
updates can be made easily with a standard
USB memory card.
Minimum Ventilation Cycle — When ventilation is not required to reduce the room
temperature, fan outputs can run either continuously or intermittently to reduce humidity
levels and supply oxygen to the room.
Operation Cost Monitoring — The controller can monitor the amperage draw of the
outputs and give you daily reports of the
operation costs.
Recuperation of the Warm Attic Air — In
order to make energy savings, the controller
can extract the warm air from the attic and
send it back into the room.
History Menus — The history menus allow
monitoring the sensor readings and verify the
run time of some outputs. Below is a list of
all available histories menus:
Computer Control — The controller can be
connected to a computer, thus making it
possible to centralize the management of
information and diversify control strategies.
Tunnel Ventilation — When the room temperature rises, tunnel ventilation reduces
the actual temperature perceived by the
animals.
Minimum and maximum sensor readings:
Ambient temperature................. 400 days
Inside temperature sensors............. 7 days
Outside temperature sensor........ 400 days
Relative humidity sensor............ 400 days
Test Mode — A test mode allows simulating temperature changes and verifying the
controller‘s performances.
Overload and Over-voltage Protection — Resettable fuses are provided at low-voltage
inputs of the controller to protect its circuitry
in the case of an overload or over-voltage.
2. MOUNTING INSTRUCTIONS
2.2. Connections
2.1. Installing the Controller
on the Wall
Refer to the wiring diagram enclosed with this
user’s manual to connect the controller. Drill
holes at the bottom of the enclosure to pass
the wires and install watertight connectors to
prevent water from entering in the enclosure.
Do not make any holes at the side and top of
the enclosure.
Fasten the two metal brackets on the mounting holes located behind the controller using
four screws. Then, mount the enclosure on
the wall using four other screws. Leave a
clearance of at least 16” to the left of the
enclosure to allow the cover to be removed
for maintenance.

PRO-VISION rev.03
2.2.1. Main Wiring All wiring must be done by an authorized electrician and must comply with
applicable codes, laws and regulations.
Make sure power is off before doing any
wiring to avoid electrical shocks and
equipment damage.
PRO-VISION
Do not install rigid conduit into electrical
knockouts. Only nylon cable glands are
permitted for cable or wire fastening.
The controller has no power-on switch.
An external switch or circuit breaker
shall be included in the building installation to interrupt power to L and N
electric power lines. It shall be in close
proximity to the equipment and within
easy reach of the operator. It shall be
marked as the disconnecting device for
the equipment.
2.2.2. Alarm Connection
There are two types of alarms on the market.
One type activates when current is cut off at its
input; the other type of alarm activates when
current is supplied at its input. For an alarm of
the first type, use the NC terminal as shown on
the wiring diagram. For an alarm of the second
type, use the NO terminal.
3. USER INTERFACE
3.1. Location of the Controls
Graphic LCD display — The large graphic
LCD screen is used to display the parameters
and menus.
Menu selectors — The menu selectors allow
selecting a tab on screen.
Home key — This short-cut key provides access to the main menu.
Back — The “Back” key is used to go back to
the previous menu.
Arrow keys — The arrow keys allow selecting a parameter on screen. The right and

2.2.3. Sensor Inputs
Sensors operate at low voltage and are
isolated from the supply. Make sure that
sensor cables remain isolated from all high
voltage sources. In particular, do not route
the sensor cables through the same electrical knockout as other cables. Do not connect
the shield from the sensor cable to a terminal
or a ground.
Extending a sensor: Each sensor can be extended up to 500 feet (150 meters).
To extend a sensor: Use a shielded cable of
outside diameter between 0.245 and 0.260 in
(6.22 and 6.60 mm) (the cable dimensions
should not be under 18 AWG) to ensure the
cable entry is liquid tight. Do not ground the
shielding.
Do not run sensor cables next to other
power cables. When crossing over other
cables, cross at 90°.
Defective sensors: An alarm is generated
when a defective sensor is detected. Defective sensors are identified in the “Alarm”
menu. Refer to chapter 13 for fur ther
­information on the alarms.
2.2.4. 0-10V Output Connection
It is recommended to use a 18 to 22 AWG
wire to connect the devices to the 0-10V
outputs. This type of output can be used to
connect various devices such as lights.
It is preferable to solder the cable joint to
ensure a proper contact between the two
cables.

4.8. Non-Brood Zones &
Clean Mode
Definition of a Non-Brood Zone: A non-brood
zone is an unused part of the house. This type
of zone is automatically created when a heater
exclusively uses temperature sensors that
are not used to measure the average room
temperature. Non-brood zones are generally
not ventilated and only have some heaters to
ensure minimum heat.
Heaters in Non-Brood Zones: The operating
temperatures of the heaters in non-brood
zones are related to the “Non-Brood temperature set point” rather than on the regular
temperature set point. This means that if the
non-brood temperature set point changes, the
operating temperatures of non-brood heaters will be adjusted consequently. Refer to
section 5.1 to set the “Non-Brood temperature
set point”.
Definition of the Clean Mode: The clean mode
is used to interrupt regular operations of the
controller when the whole house is empty.
When this mode is enabled, the controller
simply provides a minimum level of heat in
the house; the heaters operate according to
their non-brood settings.
Low Temperature Alarms in Clean Mode: The
controller can sound an alarm if the temperature gets too low while it operates in clean
mode (or when the temperature gets too low
in an empty zone). Once it is enabled, refer
to section 13.2 to adjust the low temperature
limit.
Figure: Heaters in Non-Brood Zones
1. Feeder relays are used to stop the feeders when
a feeder run time alarm occurs. These relays are
normally closed (NC) relays which open when their
respective feeder exceeds a user-defined run time.
Fans
2. Some relays on the relay panels have specially
been designed to connect actuators (an actuator
relay has an “Open/Off/Close” marking instead
of an “On/Off” marking on the faceplate of the
panel). When actuators are connected to these
relays, their open and close relays can never be
activated at the same time.

2.Set the following parameters:
Set Point — The Set Point is the target temperature in the room. The operating temperatures
of most outputs are based on this value,
which means that if the set point changes,
the start & stop temperatures of the outputs
are adjusted accordingly. Set the temperature
set point to the desired value. Also note that
if the set point ramp is enabled, the controller
automatically defines this value as a function
of the animal age (see section 5.2). * This
parameter is common to all programs.
Non brood — Set the target temperature used
in the non-brood zones. *Refer to section 4.8 for
further information about non brood zones.
RH Set Point — The relative humidity (RH) set
point is the target level of relative humidity
in the room. It is only used if the controller
is used in a broiler or turkey facility. If the
humidity level in the room gets higher than
this set point, the controller can enable different compensation functions to lower it down

6.2. Minimum Ventilation
Minimum ventilation cycles are activated
when the room temperature is lower than the
start temperature of the first fan stage. Running the fans even though ventilation is not
required for reducing the room temperature
is useful to reduce humidity levels and supply
oxygen to the room. It also prevents the fans
from freezing in winter.
Minimum ventilation can only be used
if at least 1 fan output is enabled in the
Set-up menu (see section 4.4).

ramp is composed of 12 steps and each step
associates an On Time with an animal age.
Once the ramp is enabled, the controller
changes “On Time” portion of the minimum
ventilation cycles every hour in a linear fashion between consecutive steps of the ramp.
When it reaches the last step, the controller
keeps using the last “On Time” until the end
of the flock.

6.2.3.1. Fan Selection
The minimum ventilation cycles are ensured
by a user-defined selection of fans and/or
tunnel fans. In order to identify a fan/tunnel
fan that is used in minimum ventilation, set
its operating mode to “Timer” or “Tmr, clo attic” in the “On/Off Settings” menu. Refer to the
lateral or tunnel fan sections of this manual to
assign these fan operating modes (sections
6.5.1 & 6.5.3).
6.2.3.2. Fan Cycling
In minimum ventilation, the controller can
make a rotation of the fans selection between
consecutive cycles. This rotation allows running the fan motors evenly and regularly. In
order to use fan cycling, you must specify
how many fans must be activated simultaneously and specify after how many cycles
they must switch.
Here is an example of fan cycling with 4 fans.
In this example 2 fans are used simultaneously and a switch is made every 3 cycles:

6.2.4. Air Intake in Min Ventilation
• If the attic vent is not used:
If the attic vent is not used, the air intake in
minimum ventilation is exclusively provided
by the sidewall vent: the vent opens during
the “Vent Pre-opening” delay at the startup
of each cycle and then moves according to
its respective static pressure limits until the
fans stop. When they do, the sidewall vent
closes and stays closed until the beginning
of the next cycle.
Automatic Pre-Opening Delays: If the automatic pre-opening function is used, the
controller refers to the time it actually took for
the vents to reach the desired pressure range
the last time they had to open and then sets
the next pre-opening delay accordingly.
Refer to section 6.3.2 to set the preopening delay & the static pressure
limits.

Fans per cycle — Select how many cycling
fans must be activated simultaneously in a

one minimum ventilation cycle to the other.
The fans that are labeled “On” are the regular
minimum ventilation fans used in all minimum
ventilation cycles.
Change fan cycle — Select after how many
minimum ventilation cycles the selection of
cycling fans must switch. This parameter
ranges from 1 to 1,000 cycles.
Fan#x / Tun#x— To use a fan/tunnel fan according to the above fan cycling parameters,
set its status to “Cycle”. *Note that the status
of all regular minimum ventilation fans cannot be
set to Off (- - -).
ii. When the compensation is over, the air
intake in minimum ventilation becomes
provided by both vents (attic & sidewall):
the vents open during the “Vent Pre-opening”
delay at the startup of each cycle and then
move according to the sidewall vent’s
static pressure limits until the fans stop.
When the fans stop, both vents close and
stay closed until the beginning of the
next cycle.
b) Without the attic compensation:
If the attic vent is used but the attic
compensation function is disabled, the air
intake in minimum ventilation is exclusively
provided by the attic vent (the sidewall vent
stays closed). The attic vent opens during
the “Vent Pre-opening” delay at the startup
of each cycle and then moves according
to its respective static pressure limits until
the fans stop. When they do, the attic vent
closes and stays closed until the beginning
of the next cycle.
Pre-Opening of the Vents: The pre-opening
delay is used to pre-open the vents (sidewall
& attic vents) before activating the fans at the
startup of each minimum ventilation cycle. The
controller can use a steady pre-opening delay
or can set this delay automatically. Refer to
the Set-up menu in section 4.4 to enable/
disable the automatic pre-opening function
and refer to section 6.3.2 to set this delay if
the automatic function is not used.

Attic Compensation on the Min Ventilation Air Intake
When the PRO-VISION operates in minimum
ventilation and the attic temperature is warm
enough, the controller can extract the warm
air from the attic by increasing the operating
time of the fans. When this compensation is
on, the controller automatically adjusts the
“On Time“ portion of the minimum ventilation timer as a function of the room temperature.
If the room temperature is cooler than the
“Attic start comp at” value and the attic temperature is equal or higher than this start-up
point, the “On Time” of the minimum ventilation cycle is fully compensated in order to
extract a maximum level of heat from the
attic (the fans are always on). As the room
temperature rises and reaches the compensation’s start-up point, the “On Time” starts
decreasing gradually, in a linear fashion, as
the room temperature increases. The “On
Time” finally stops being compensated when

6.3. Lateral Ventilation
Lateral ventilation can only be used if
at least 1 fan output is enabled in the
Set-up menu (see section 4.4).
6.3.1. Lateral Ventilation Fans
Lateral ventilation begins at the startup of
the first fan stage and ends at the startup of
the ventilation mode that follows (i.e natural
or tunnel ventilation).
A fan output starts running when the room
temperature reaches its “On Temperature”;
likewise, it stops when the room temperature
falls to its “Off Temperature”.
The temperatures at which a fan starts and
stops are related to the temperature set point.
This mean they are automatically adjusted
when the temperature set point changes.

Mode Column:
This column tells the controller to execute
a particular function at the startup of a fan
output or allows giving the output a special
attribute. Set the mode of each fan output
as follows (set the mode to “—” if nothing
applies to an output).
Timer — The “Timer” label identifies a fan
output that is used in minimum ventilation.
A fan output that is labeled “Timer” runs
according to a timer in minimum ventilation
and runs continuously when the room temperature reaches its “On Temperature”.
Close Attic — The controller can close the attic vent at the startup of a certain fan output.
Assign the “Close attic” label to the fan output
at which the attic must close (if applicable).
* This option is available if the attic vent is enabled
in the Set-up menu (see section 4.4).
Timer, Close Attic — Use this label to identify
a fan that is used in minimum ventilation and
whose startup asks for the attic vent to close.
* This option is available if the attic vent is enabled
in the Set-up menu (see section 4.4).
6.3.2. Air Intake in Lateral Vent.
Two vent outputs can be used in lateral ventilation: a sidewall vent and an attic vent.
Both of these vents move according to the
variations in the static pressure level: they
opens when the pressure level exceeds the
sidewall vent’s Hi pressure limit and close
when the pressure level gets lower than the
sidewall vent’s Lo pressure limit.
Automatic adjustment of the pressure limits
as a function of the outside temperature:
If an outside temperature sensor is used,
the controller can automatically adjust the
static pressure limits used by sidewall vents
according to the outside temperature. Using
higher pressure limits in cold weather ­allows
reducing the cold air ­intake since the pressure
level has to be higher before the vents start
opening. Likewise, using lower pressure limits
in warm weather allows the vents to move
with fewer restrictions.

and by the tunnel inlet (if applicable). This
ventilation mode is only accessible in turkey
facilities. Refer to section 4.4 to select the
type of facility in use.
The natural ventilation is only accessible
in a turkey facility (see section 4.4).
Note that the static pressure alarm
conditions are not monitored while the
controller is in natural ventilation.
Beginning of Natural Ventilation: The controller enters in natural ventilation when
temperature reaches the start temperature of
a natural ventilation curtain. At that moment,
the controller makes the natural curtain open
to its initial position and closes the lateral &
attic vents.
Stopping the Fans in Natural Ventilation: The
controller switches off all the fan outputs
(lateral & tunnel fans) when the temperature
reaches the fans shutoff point (“Shutoff fans
at”).
Movement of the curtains in natural ventilation: A natural ventilation curtain opens to its
initial position when temperature reaches its
respective start temperature. The curtain then
opens gradually towards its maximum opening
as temperature increases; it finally reaches its
maximum opening when temperature reaches
the “Max Open T°” temperature value.

6.5. Tunnel Ventilation
6.5.1. Principle of Operation
The tunnel ventilation mode begins at the
startup of a chosen tunnel fan output. If the
lateral ventilation mode preceeds the tunnel
ventilation mode, the controller can make a
smooth transition between both modes by
opening the tunnel inlet prior to closing the
sidewall vents. Refer to the following section of this manual to specify the moment at
which the transition begins and the moment
at which tunnel ventilation is fully enabled.
Temperature Sensors in Tunnel Ventilation:
When it is in tunnel ventilation, the controller
measures the room temperature according
to the temperature sensors that are associated with the tunnel fan output in use. The
sensors that are being used in tunnel ventilation are specially defined to compensate for
changes in airflow patterns that can distort
the room temperature. Refer to section 4.5
to select the temperature sensors used in
tunnel ventilation.
Air Intake in Tunnel Ventilation: In tunnel ventilation, the air intake is exclusively provided
by the tunnel inlets (the sidewall vent, attic
vents and natural curtains are closed). Up to
2 tunnel inlets can operate as a function of
the static pressure level or as a function of
the room temperature. Refer to section 4.4
of this manual to enable the tunnel inlets and
to choose their operating mode.
6.5.2. Tunnel Ventilation in
Standby
The controller allows putting tunnel ventilation on standby at any moment. This is useful
to prevent the tunnel inlet from opening when
the animals are too young or when it is too
cold outside for instance. If the tunnel mode
is on standby and the room temperature is
suitable for tunnel ventilation, the controller
will not switch to tunnel ventilation and will
keep using the highest level of ventilation.
Refer to the previous section to see how
the transition is made between natural
to tunnel ventilation.
A tunnel fan output starts running when the
room temperature reaches the output’s “On
Temperature”; likewise, it stops when the room
temperature falls to its “Off Temperature”.
The temperatures at which a tunnel fan starts
and stops are related to the temperature
set point. This mean they are automatically
adjusted when the temperature set point
changes.

tunnel fan output as follows (set the mode to
“—” if nothing applies to an output).
Timer — The “Timer” label identifies a
tunnel fan output that is used in minimum
ventilation. A tunnel fan that has this label
runs according to a timer in minimum ventilation and runs continuously when the room
temperature reaches its “On Temperature”.
Start tunnel — The “Start tunnel” label indicates the moment at which the transition
from lateral to tunnel ventilation begins: the
first tunnel inlet starts being used at the
start-up of that tunnel fan and the sidewall
vent keeps being used.
Close sidewall — The “Close sidewall” label
indicates the moment at which lateral ventilation ends. The sidewall vent closes at the
startup of the chosen tunnel fan and the tunnel ventilation mode becomes fully effective
at that moment.
St.tun,clo.side — The “Start tunnel, close sidewall” label indicates the moment at which
the controller switches from lateral to tunnel ventilation. With this option, there is no
gradual transition made from one ventilation
mode to the other. The sidewall vents close
and the tunnel inlet start being used at the
startup of the chosen tunnel fan.

room temperature gets too low. Set this security limit to the desired value.
6.5.4. Tunnel Inlets
The controller can control the opening of
2 tunnel inlets. These inlets either operate as
a function of the static pressure level or as a
function of temperature. Refer to the Set-up
menu in section 4.4 to enable the tunnel inlets
and to choose their operating mode.
If 2 tunnel inlets are used, they both follows
the same movements. However, both tunnel
inlets do not start being used at the same time.
The 1st inlet starts being used at the beginning
of tunnel ventilation and the 2nd inlet starts at
the startup of another user-defined tunnel fan
output. Refer to the previous section of this
manual to set the moment at which the 2nd
tunnel inlet starts being used.

Temperature-based Tun-
When using temperature-based tunnel inlets,
the user must associate an actuator position
with the startup of each tunnel fan. This
way, when a fan/tunnel fan starts, the inlet
opens accordingly. The tunnel inlet starts
opening this way at the beginning of tunnel
ventilation. The graph below shows how the
tunnel inlet opens. Refer to Set-up menu in
section 4.4 to enable a temperature-based
tunnel inlet.

Total opening time — Specify the exact time
that is required to reach the actuator’s maximum limit switch. The controller will limit the
opening of the inlet according to this value.
* This parameter is common to all programs.
6.5.4.2. Pressure-based
Tunnel Inlets
Opening of the Tunnel Inlet:
If the tunnel inlets are controlled by static
pressure, the first inlet start moving according to the fluctuations in the pressure level
when the controller enters in tunnel ventilation. It open when the pressure level exceeds
the high pressure limit and closes when the
pressure level gets lower than the low pres-

Lo/Hi Stat. Pressure — Set the static pressure

tunnel inlet operates according to static pressure
level (see section 4.4).
Wind Delay — When the pressure level
exceeds the high or low static pressure set
limit, the tunnel inlet waits for the end of the
“Wind Delay” before moving. The high or low
pressure condition must be maintained during
the whole delay for the tunnel inlet to start
moving. This way, the tunnel inlet does not
move if a wind draft causes fleeting changes
in the pressure level. Set the “Wind Delay” to
the desired value. *Note that this parameter is
common to all pressure-based air inlets (sidewall,
attic and tunnel inlet).

6.6. Cooling Outputs
Pre-opening — Specify how much time is
required to pre-open the tunnel inlet at the
startup of tunnel ventilation (if no transition is
made) or at the startup of the transition from
lateral to tunnel ventilation. The controller will
pre-open the tunnel inlet before activating the
fans at the startup of the tunnel fan that is
labeled “Start Tunnel” or “St.Tun,Clo side” (refer
to section 6.5.3). * This parameter is accessible if
the tunnel inlet operates according to static pressure
level (see section 4.4).
The controller has 6 cooling outputs that can
be used to activate various types of cooling
devices. A cooling output starts operating in
timer mode when the average temperature
reaches its “ON Temperature”. The “ON Time”
portion of the timer then increases as the temperature rises, up until it reaches the “Cycle
Time” (i.e., the cooling output is always on).
This happens when the average temperature
reaches the “Max Run T°” parameter value. The
graph below sums up this situation.
Pre-opening 2 — Specify how much time is
required to pre-open the tunnel inlet at the
startup of tunnel ventilation (when the transition from sidewall to tunnel ventilation is over).
The controller will pre-open the tunnel inlet
before activating the fans at the startup of the
tunnel fan that is labeled “Close sidewall” (refer
to section 6.5.3). If no transition is made, this
delay is simply added to the initial pre-opening
delay. * * This parameter is accessible if the tunnel inlet operates according to static pressure level
(see section 4.4).

Reference Temperature: Each cooling output
operates according to the average temperature reading of its respective group of sensors. Refer to section 4.5 to assign these
sensors. The operating temperatures of the
cooling outputs are also related to the temperature set point. This means that if the

11.EGG ROOM OUTPUTS
If it is used in a breeder facility the controller
automatically enables an egg room and controls the ambient temperature and humidity
level of in it with its 3 egg room outputs (egg
room cooling, heating and humidity outputs).
Refer to the Set-up menu in section 4.4 to
select in what type of facility the controller
is located (breeder, broiler or turkey).
When the egg room is used, the PRO-VISION
also keeps a tally of the number of eggs produced each day (the egg tally includes the
daily count of produced, cracked and floor
eggs as well as the daily average egg weight)
and finally allows setting the time clocks with
a weekly schedule. Refer to section 14.4 to
access the egg count menu and refer to section 9.1 to set the egg room time clocks.
Reference Temperature: All egg room outputs
operate according to the egg room temperature. Refer to section 4.5 to select which temperature sensors are located in this room.
Relative Humidity in the Egg Room: If the
egg room is enabled and the controller uses a
relative humidity (RH) sensor, the RH sensor
must be located inside the egg room.
Egg Room Heating Output: The controller can
control 1 heating output in the egg room. This
output starts when the egg room temperature
gets lower than its “On Temperature” and stops
when the egg room temperature reaches its
“Off Temperature”.
Egg Room Cooling Output: The controller can

Alarm Conditions
Low temperature alarm
High temperature alarm
Critical temperature alarm
Low static pressure (P.E.) alarm
The situation is slightly different when the
outside temperature is greater than the room
set point. In this case, the outside temperature becomes the reference point (instead of
using the set point as a the reference). This
means an alarm is declared when the room
temperature reaches Outside Temperature + High
Alarm Offset (the offset being the difference
between the high alarm temperature setting
and the set point). A third parameter, called
the Critical Temperature, is defined to continue
monitoring the indoor temperature for high
temperatures. When the indoor temperature
reaches the critical high temperature (defined
as an absolute value), an alarm is declared.

The controller can set off an alarm when
the static pressure (S.P.) level exceeds the
high or low pressure alarm limit for a certain
period of time.
Note that the static pressure alarm
conditions are not monitored while the
controller is in natural ventilation.
• Low Static Pressure Alarm: When a low
pressure alarm occurs, the controller switches
on the alarm relay and the low pressure alarm
relay (the low pressure relay can be used to
activate additional fans for instance). Refer to
section 4.7 to enable this type or relay.
• Low Static Pressure Alarm in Minimum
Ventilation: In minimum ventilation, the controller only monitors the low pressure alarm
condition while the fans are running (i.e.,
during the “On Time” portion of the minimum
ventilation cycle).
• High Static Pressure Alarm: When a high
static pressure alarm occurs, the controller switches on the alarm relay and opens
all air inlets (sidewall vent, attic vent and
tunnel inlets). The inlets open continuously
until the pressure level gets back in the acceptable pressure range and until the user
acknowledges the alarm by accessing the
alarm log menu.

13.2.3.Water Spill Alarm
A water spill alarm is declared when the water
consumption exceeds the acceptable limit.
This limit ranges from 0 to 10,000 gallons
or liters per 15 minutes.
The controller can also adjust the water spill
limit of each water meter automatically as the
animals are growing. The water spill alarm
limit changes in a linear fashion between 2
user-defined steps: the first step being the
maximum water consumption allowed at
the beginning of the flock (-5 days) and the
second step being the maximum consumption
at the end of the flock.

or it can be uploaded in another controller of
the same type.
NO USB memory card is provided with
the system. You can purchase one in
any good electronic store.
Connecting the Memory Card: Open the

Configuration Files (*.pkg): The controller
only recognizes the configuration files with
the *.pkg extension. In addition, the files
must be located at the root of the USB memory card otherwise, the controller will not see
them (it cannot access any sub-directory). In
order to erase or rename a configuration file,
you must access your USB memory card via
a computer (or palm pilot).
Furthermore, when uploading one of these
files in the control, it is possible to upload
only 1 of its 2 components: the software or
the parameters settings. It is thus possible to
upgrade your controller without loosing your
parameter settings for instance.
