General Operation
Control Console
The Control Console contains the radio Receiver and power control circuits. The Control
Console is equipped with a Master Power On/Off switch on the outside of the case. When the
switch is ON, the Red LED should be lit indicating normal operation. Press and release to turn
On and Off.
Each of the Swing Auger Drive and Winch may be operated independently from the Control
Console by pressing the desired momentary switch. The Green “Output” LED will come on and
the selected device will operate.
The Control Console also has built-in fault status indicators. For ease of troubleshooting, if a
“low voltage” status occurs to the Control Console, the green Fault States Indicator will blink
approximately twice per second. Check all connections to ensure they are clean and tight. Make
sure that the tractor battery is fully charged, and the engine is running. If a “control circuit high
temperature” status occurs the green Fault States Indicator will flash rapidly, blinking
approximately four times per second. Allow the unit to cool before resuming operation.
Each Swing Auger Mover has its own RF receiver located in the control console, which is
channel selectable to operate in multi-component environments e.g. remote control trailer
chutes on Channels 1 & 2, and the Swing Auger Mover on Channel 3. The user can select the
desired channel using the 2-position dip-switch. All Swing Auger Movers are set to Channel 1 at
the factory.
Auxiliary Output (option)
The Control Console Auxiliary Output provides a remote control power output capable of
delivering 10A (120 watts). This feature is intended for the operation of a remote control light
for illuminating the work area when approaching at night, or for operation of a camera or other
device. The output can be activated and deactivated from the transmitter by pressing the
centre button on the RF transmitter (marked AUX), or from the Control Console by pressing the
two “Aux” control buttons on the face of the Control Console simultaneously. The auxiliary
output is protected by a thermal fuse that automatically resets when cooled. The auxiliary
output is automatically shut off when the fuse trips to prevent a repeating cycle of the fuse
tripping and resetting and must be reactivated using the transmitter or Console controls.
The Auxiliary output option includes a 5-foot length of cable to connect the Control Console to
the 12V device. The polarity is as follows: +12V on the WHITE wire, and GROUND on the
BLACK wire.
The auxiliary output connector is factory installed at the bottom center of the console case.
Kramble Industries Inc. is not responsible or liable for indirect, special, or consequential damages arising out of or in connection

Transmitter/Receiver Matching
The Receiver is matched to a Transmitter by “learning” the transmitter’s unique security code
so that the receiver will accept commands from that transmitter. A factory default system
already has its transmitter matched to the receiver.
To match a transmitter to a receiver, first turn the receiver power switch OFF. Hold the button
marked LEARN on the receiver and press the receiver power ON, then release the two buttons.
The Receive/LEARN light is then lit to indicate that the receiver is waiting for a signal from the
transmitter to be learned. Press any button on the transmitter to send a signal and the receiver
will read the transmitter’s security code and store it in memory. The Receive/LEARN light will
flash three times to indicate that the transmitter has been successfully learned, and the
Receive/LEARN light will turn off and receiver will then enter normal operating mode. Up to
eight transmitters can be learned by a receiver. If eight unique transmitters have already been
learned by a receiver and it is instructed to learn another transmitter, the oldest-learned
transmitter’s security code will be overwritten and forgotten. The Full Bin Alarm buzzer and
light are disabled for ten seconds after learning a sensor probe’s security code in order to
prevent unwanted activation of the alarm.
To erase all stored security codes, turn the receiver power ON while holding the LEARN button,
and continue holding the button until the Receive/LEARN light begins to rapidly flash. Release
the button, and the light will flash more slowly for three seconds, then turn off to indicate that
the erase operation has succeeded. If the LEARN button is pressed while the Receive/LEARN
light is slowly flashing, the erase operation is aborted and the receiver retains the stored
transmitter security codes.
The Receiver is equipped with a two-position switch to enable or disable the learn and erase
functions. To enable or disable a function, open the case and locate the switch as illustrated
below. The switches and their positions are labeled on the circuit board. Factory default
systems are set by default so that the Learn function is Enabled and the Erase function is
Disabled.

Channel Select Settings
The Swing Auger Mover comes with a 2-position DIP Switch to match the Drive to the desired
transmitter channel. In multi-component environments, be sure that each drive is set to a
different channel so that devices do not operate simultaneously. Select the switch settings as
follows:
Channel 1
Channel 2
Channel 3
Channel 4
Switch 1
OFF
ON
OFF
ON
Switch 2
OFF
OFF

The Swing Auger Mover and Winch can be operated using the Transmitter, or alternatively, by
operating the UP/DOWN momentary switches on the Control Console. Whenever the Swing
Auger Mover drive or Winch is operated by remote control the Yellow “Receive Data” LED will
be lit along with the Green LED indicating power output to the drive.
The Swing Auger Mover has two automatically resetting fuses. Fuse F1 (1 Amp) inside the
control console is intended to protect the RF receiver and data circuitry, and Fuse F2 (80 Amp)
at the battery is intended to protect against a short circuit in the cables. These fuses will
automatically reset when cooled.
The Control Console power switch should be turned Off when not in use to prevent undesired
operation.
Transmitter
The Transmitter is powered by a 9V battery which, when installed, should light the red "power"
light when a switch is pressed. If the battery does not exceed 7 volts the Power light will not
come On, indicating battery replacement is required.
The Transmitter is also equipped with an OFF/Standby switch to prevent accidental operation.
In the OFF position the transmitter Red LED will not light and the transmitter will not activate
even when a function button is pressed. To operate, slide the switch to STANDBY. The
transmitter remains off until a function button is pressed, at which time the Red LED will light
and the transmitter will emit signal. No battery power is used when simply in Standby mode
with no function buttons pressed.
Each transmitter contains a unique identifying security code that is transmitted to the receiver
during RF operation. Up to eight Transmitters can "talk" to the same Receiver as long as the
receiver has learned the transmitters’ security codes. See page 9 for Security Code Matching
Instructions.
To access the battery, remove the 4 screws in the back of the Transmitter case and open the
case.

Transport Winch (option)
The Transport Winch is provided for ease of lifting of the swing auger and hopper to and from
the transport position. This electric winch operates on 12Vdc power provided through the
Control Console and can be operated by manual switch on the Console, or by remote control.
Think Safety!
Do not install or operate where damage to persons or property
may occur
The customer can decide the optimum mounting location and utilization for each application.
The electric winch may be employed to replace the existing hand-crank winch or alternatively,
to operate in addition to the hand-crank winch.
It is recommended to utilize the auger manufacturer’s pulleys and guides provided for the
hand-crank winch to ensure the swing auger and hopper lifts as designed. In addition, remove
any excess cable so as to reduce the number of cable layers on the winch drum and thus
maximize capacity. To further increase winch capacity, a pulley block and hook can be utilized
to effectively double the load capacity.
To install the winch on the mounting plate provided, the customer should unwind the cable to
get access to the two mounting holes, which are located underneath the drum. Unwind the
cable until you have enough space to drop a bolt through each hole then screw the nuts on
from the bottom.
The Transport Winch option uses a Superwinch C1000
12vdc electric winch, which provides 5000lb. line pull
(bottom layer) manufactured by Superwinch Inc.
It is imperative for the user to follow all winching
instructions as contained in the Superwinch Owner’s
Manual.

Full Bin Alarm (option)
The integrated Full Bin Alarm (FBA) is a monitoring system that indicates when the grain level in
the bin is reaching its maximum. The system consists of a FBA console segment with audible
and visible alarms built into the swing auger console and a sensor that hangs into the grain bin
suspended from the spout of an auger. The battery-powered Sensor Probe is fully sealed and
communicates wirelessly via radio frequency (RF) to the Receiver Console. When the grain
level becomes high enough that the grain comes in contact with the Sensor Probe tilting it
beyond 30° for 3 seconds, the sensor will send an RF signal that tells the receiver to activate the
alarm.

General Operation
Receiver Console
The Full Bin Alarm Receiver Console is integrated into the front of the Swing Auger Mover
console and is equipped with its own Power On/Off button and a Cancel Alarm (CAN) button on
the face. The Swing Auger Mover must be powered on in order to use the Full Bin Alarm. The
Full Bin Alarm powers on when the Swing Auger Mover is turned on, however, the Full Bin
Alarm can also be powered off independently of the Swing Auger Mover to prevent undesired
operation.

The yellow LED indicates that the Console is receiving a valid RF transmission directed to the Bin
Alarm. In normal operation, when the Sensor Probe is tilted more than 30° from vertical it
transmits an alarm signal, which causes the Yellow “receive” LED to light for ½ second and the
alarm to activate. The alarm signal is both a 2” RED lamp and audible beeper acting
simultaneously. The green “low battery” LED illuminates when the sensor sends a Low Battery
signal, indicating that the Sensor Probe battery requires replacement. Once activated, the
green LED will remain on until the Bin Alarm is powered off.
The Receiver Console activates the alarm when the alarm signal is received. The alarm remains
on for ten seconds or until the Cancel button is pressed. If the Sensor Probe remains activated
the alarm will continue for 60 seconds unless canceled. While the alarm is active but has been
cancelled, the alarm can be reactivated by pressing the Cancel button a second time. If ten
seconds pass without receiving an alarm signal and the alarm has been cancelled, the receiver
will automatically reset to normal mode and sound the alarm again should the sensor
subsequently transmit the alarm signal.
Kramble Industries Inc. is not responsible or liable for indirect, special, or consequential damages arising out of or in connection
with the use or performance of the product or other damage with respect to any economic loss, loss of property, loss of revenue
or profit, or costs of removal, installation, or reinstallation.
Revision 1

The Full Bin Alarm power may be turned off independently of the Swing Auger Mover when not
in use to prevent undesired operation.
FBA Receiver Console SELF TEST
To test the Receiver Console alarm light and siren, hold the Cancel button for four seconds
while the Full Bin Alarm is powered on. Once tested, the alarm will shut off when the Cancel
button is released.
Sensor Probe
A nine-volt battery powers the Sensor Probe. If the battery voltage falls below 6.5 volts, the
transmitter will transmit a Low Battery signal approximately once per hour, which will
illuminate the green LED on the receiver to indicate that the Sensor Probe battery needs
replacing. If the battery voltage falls below 6.0 volts, the sensor will be unable to transmit.
The Sensor Probe contains no external buttons or switches. Once the battery is installed it is
always active. When the Sensor Probe is vertical, it is in very low-power sleep mode, waking
every two seconds to check the tilt angle. A tilt angle greater than 30° will cause the sensor to
remain awake and begin alarm transmission if the angle remains 30° for more than three
seconds.
While active, the Sensor Probe sends the alarm signal for a short period every five seconds. This
is indicated by a blink of the yellow “receive” LED on the console. If the Sensor Probe remains
tilted greater than 30° for more than one minute, transmission will cease and the Sensor Probe
will return to sleep mode. Only when the Sensor Probe is returned to the vertical position, will
it resume normal operation.
Sensor Self-Test
To test the battery level and threshold angle of the sensor, access the circuit board by
unscrewing the top half and separating the two halves of the assembly. The circuit board and
battery are mounted on the black sensor mounting plate. With the battery attached, hold the
WHITE test button on the circuit board until the yellow LED lights up. If the yellow LED begins
flashing, the battery is low and needs to be replaced. If the yellow LED stays on, the battery is
good and it is always on while self-testing. To test the threshold angle the red LED will light up
when the circuit board is tilted beyond the threshold. To exit test mode, hold the button again
until the yellow LED remains off. The Full Bin Alarm Sensor Probe will not transmit a signal while
in test mode. Ensure that the LEDs are not lit before reassembling the sensor.

RF Security
As with the handheld transmitter, the sensor probe contains its own unique security code that
is matched to the receiver at the factory.
Sensor Angle Setup
The FBA Sensor utilizes a 3-axis accelerometer to determine its angle with respect to the
ground. The trip angle of the sensor, at which it transmits the signal to activate the alarm light
and horn, is preset to 30 degrees tilt at the time of manufacture. This angle is programmable,
and while not normally required, may be changed by the customer to optimize the sensor’s
response in the customer’s application.
There are two steps to set the threshold angle of the probe; first, set the 0 degree reference
angle. Second, set the desired threshold angle. Do following steps to complete the setup.
1. Open the Sensor case by unthreading the top from the bottom.
2. Slide the Angle Program Switch (shown below in its rightward position) to the leftward
position.
3. Find a flat surface (parallel to the ground) and then stand the probe straight up. This
will be the zero-angle reference.
4. Press and hold (do not release) the white self-test button until the yellow LED
illuminates. This stores the zero angle in the probe.
5. Tilt the sensor probe to the desired angle and, holding the probe steadily, release the
button. This sets the probe’s trip angle and you may slide the Angle Program Switch
back to the rightward position.

6. Test the sensor probe by tilting it back and forth to ensure proper operation. The red
LED should illuminate when the threshold angle of the probe is reached.
7. To exit the self-test mode, hold the white self-test button until both yellow and red LED
lights go out. Before the probe will transmit to the receiver, you must EXIT the self-test
mode.
8. To test the probe with the receiver, power ON the FBA standalone console, Tilt the
sensor probe over the threshold angle. Within 3-4 seconds the audio and visual alarms
should activate.
