INTRODUCTION
1.1
Precautions
We strongly recommend installing
supplementary natural ventilation as
well as a backup thermostat on at least
one cooling stage (refer to the relay panels’ wiring diagram to connect the thermostat).
Although fuses at the input and outputs
of the controller protect its circuits in
case of an overload or overvoltage, we
recommend installing an additional protection device on the controller's supply circuit.
The room temperature where the controller is located must always remain
between 32°F and 104°F (0°C TO
40°C). Indoor use only!
To avoid exposing the controller to
harmful gases or excessive humidity, it
is preferable to install it in a corridor.
If the equipment is used in a manner
not specified by the manufacturer, the
protection provided by the equipment
may be impaired.
Do not spray water on the controller!
In order to clean the control, wipe it with
a damp cloth.

EXPERT SERIES 2 BASIC
MAIN FEATURES:
VERY LARGE LCD DISPLAY
A large LCD screen provides an efficient interface
for displaying, monitoring and adjusting the parameters.
3 CONTROLLER PROGRAMS
The controller allows using 3 different programs to
control the room temperature. It is thus possible to
activate a specific program, that uses particular
temperature settings, in accordance with the animal age for instance.
STATUS LEDS
Pilot lights that indicate the status of the controller outputs are located on the faceplate of the controller. These LEDs allow monitoring the system’s
operation without having to enter the building.
0-10V OUTPUTS
Two 0-10V outputs can be used to control additional
variable fan stages, heating devices, and/or inlets.
CONTROL OF THE AIR INLET MOVEMENT
The movement of air inlets can be coordinated with
the operation of the fans using a potentiometer located on the panel drive or a timer. This allows the
air inlets to be adjusted correctly, without the influence of uncontrollable factors such as wind or
air from adjoining rooms
HISTORY MENUS
History menus allow monitoring the sensor readings and verify the run time of some outputs. The
controller comes with the following histories menus:
•
Minimum and maximum sensor readings:
Room temperature ................ 60 days
Inside temperature sensors..... 10 days
Outside temperature sensor ... 75 days
Inside humidity sensor ........... 75 days
Outside humidity sensor ......... 75 days
Static pressure sensor ........... 75 days
•
Run time of each heater ........ 75 days
•
Run time of each feeder ........ 75 days
•
Daily water consumption ....... 75 days
MINIMUM VENTILATION CYCLE
When ventilation is not required to reduce the room
temperature, the fan outputs can run either continuously or intermittently to reduce humidity levels and supply oxygen to the room.
8 INDOOR TEMPERATURE SENSORS
Up to eight temperature sensors can be connected
to the controller to obtain an accurate reading of
the average room temperature and a faster reaction time.
NATURAL VENTILATION CURTAINS
The controller can open 2 natural ventilation curtains and stop all ventilation when the outside temperature is sufficiently warm.
TUNNEL VENTILATION
When the room temperature rises, tunnel ventilation reduces the actual temperature perceived by
the animals.
HUMIDITY CONTROL
The inside and outside relative humidity sensors allow controlling humidity levels in the room.
8
EXPERT SERIES 2 BASIC rev.09
ALARM MANAGEMENT
The controller provides alarms for high-low temperatures, defective sensors and other system failures. It keeps in memory the 20 most recent alarm
conditions.
PASSWORD PROTECTION
A password can be enabled to restrict access to
the setup functions of the controller.
EXPERT SERIES 2 BASIC
BACKUP BATTERY
A backup battery allows the unit to keep time in
case of a power failure.
OVERLOAD AND OVERVOLTAGE PROTECTION
Resettable fuses are provided at low-voltage inputs
of the controller to protect its circuitry in the case
of an overload or overvoltage.
COMPUTER CONTROL
The controller can be connected to a computer,
thus making it possible to centralize the management of information and diversify control strategies.
TEST MODE
A test mode allows you to simulate temperature
changes and verify controller performances.

MOUNTING INSTRUCTIONS
2.1 Installing the Controller on
the Wall
Fasten the two metal brackets on the mounting
holes located behind the controller using six 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.
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.
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.
2.2
Connections
2.2.1
Main Wiring
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.
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.
10
EXPERT SERIES 2 BASIC rev.09
It is preferable to solder the cable joint to ensure a
proper contact between the two cables.
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 Log" menu. Refer to
chapter 12 for further 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 heat mats or fans.

The controller can automatically adjust the target
room temperature (day set point) over time by using a curve.
A curve is composed of 10 steps. Each step specifies a day number and a temperature set point for
that day (the day number refers to the animal age).
Once the curve is activated, the controller changes
the set point every hour in a linear fashion between
consecutive steps of the curve. When the last step
is reached, the controller keeps using the temperature set point associated to that day.

Minimum Ventilation
6.1.1
Minimum Ventilation Cycles
Definition
Minimum ventilation cycles are activated when the
average room temperature is below the start temperature of fan stage 1. 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 fans
If variable outputs are enabled, minimum ventilation
cycles are ensured by the variable-speed fans of
stage 1 and by chosen On/Off fans (optional). If variable outputs are not used, minimum ventilation is
ensured by On/Off fans only. Refer to section 4.8.2
to assign these On/Off fans and refer to section 4.9
to assign variable fans to stage 1.
Minimum ventilation timer
The minimum ventilation timer is composed of an
“On Time” and of a “Cycle Time”. The fans stay on
during the “On Time” then stop until the end of the
cycle. This timer is common to all programs of the
controller.
Automatic adjustment of the min. ventilation rate
The controller can automatically increase minimum
ventilation rates over time: if variable fans are used,
the controller can increase the minimum ventilation fan speed over time (curve function); if no variable fan is used, the controller can increase the
“On Time” portion of minimum ventilation cycles
(ramping function). Refer to the following sections
to use the ramping or the curve function.

Fan Stages
6.2.1
Principle of Operation
6.2.1.1 Operation of Fan Stages
6.2.1.2 Operation of Variable Outputs
The controller has 12 fan stages which operate in
a sequence to increase the level of ventilation as
the room temperature increases. Each stage can
activate two variable outputs, on/off outputs, and
a combination of timer relays for cooling purposes.
A fan stage is activated when the room temperature reaches its start temperature and is disabled
when the room temperature decreases to its stop
temperature.
Variable outputs are activated when their associated fan stage starts (see section 4.9). They start
running at their absolute minimum speed (see section 4.5) and their speed gradually increases as the
room temperature increases. Variable outputs
reach their full speed when the start temperature
of the following fan stage is reached.

Start temperatures of fan stages are defined with
respect to the set point and with respect to each
other. This means that when one of these values is
adjusted, all the consecutive values are adjusted
by the same amount. For example, if the set point
is increased by 1°F, the start temperature of all
fan stages will be increased by the same amount.
Timer-based relays in fan stages
Fan stages can activate relays that operate following a timer (On and Off Times). This is useful to
activate misting units in timer mode while a specific fan stage is active. Refer to section 4.8 to
enable timer-based relays.

The bandwidth is the temperature interval over

is never reached as in the example above: when
stage 2 starts, the controller decreases the speed
of variable outputs to the initial speed associated
with stage 2. It then uses the bandwidth to increase
the fan speed as the room temperature rises.

6.2.1.3 Stage 1 Ramping
(from point A to point B) up to full operation of the
fans when the set point + differential 1 is reached
(when Time Off becomes less than 15 seconds, it is
fixed at 15 seconds until the temperature has
reached the set point + differential 1. At that point,
the fans of stage 1 operate continuously).
The controller can gradually increase (or decrease)
the running time of the fans to smooth out the transition from the minimum ventilation cycle to full
operation of stage 1 fans.
At room temperatures at or below the set point,
the controller operates the fans of stage 1 according to the minimum ventilation cycle.
If the room temperature decreases 0.3°F below
the set point + differential 1, the On Time value
of the minimum ventilation cycle decreases gradually from a value equal to the total cycle time (point
C) towards the regular On Time.
If the room temperature rises above the set point, a
new On Time is calculated periodically as the temperature increases to allow a smooth progression

Natural Ventilation Curtains
The controller can control two natural ventilation
curtains. To operate these curtains, the controller
refers to the average temperature reading of their
assigned temperature probes (see sec. 4.7.3).
Natural ventilation is disabled when the average
temperature decreases of 5°F (2.8°C) below the
curtain's closing temperature or when tunnel ventilation starts (see graph below).
6.3.1
Transition from tunnel to natural ventilation
When the temperature decreases below the start
temperature of the first tunnel stage, the controller opens the curtain continuously during the Continuous Opening Delay. When this delay has
elapsed, it starts controlling the curtain using natural ventilation settings.
Principle of Operation
The controller enters in natural ventilation when the
average temperature of the probes that are assigned
to a curtain reaches the Initial Opening Temperature of the curtain. At that moment, the curtain
opens during its Initial Opening Time.
When the natural ventilation mode is on, the natural ventilation curtain moves in timer mode: it opens
according to its opening cycle (Open Time & Off
Time) when the average temperature rises above
its opening temperature; likewise, it closes according to its closing cycle (Close Time & Off Time)
when the temperature falls below its closing temperature.

Wind Delay When the controller is in natural ventilation and temperature falls below
the "Start Close At" temperature or rises
above the "Start Open At" temperature, the
curtain only starts moving after the wind delay has elapsed. This way, the curtain does
not move when wind drafts cause sudden
temperature changes. Set the wind delay to
the desired value. Adjustable from 0 to 900
seconds (15 minutes).
Tunnel Close Delay (Factory Setting)
This delay is launched at the beginning of
the first tunnel stage. Once it has elapsed,
the controller closes the natural ventilation
curtain.
Continuous Delay (Factory Setting)
The natural ventilation curtain opens during
this delay when the controller returns in natural ventilation (when tunnel ventilation ends).
EXPERT SERIES 2 BASIC
6.3.3
Curtain Compensation
6.3.4
The controller can slightly adjust opening of the
curtains as a function of outside temperature: as
the outside temperature increases, the controller
increases the opening time of the curtains. As a
result, curtains open faster when the outside temperature gets warm. Likewise, when the outside
temperature gets cold the controller increases the
closing time of the curtains. This compensation is
optional. To use it, enable the curtain compensation in the Installation Setup (section 4.5). Then,
set the outside temperature set point (section 5.1).
When temperature rises:
When the curtain opens, the controller increases
the curtain's On Time by 4% for every 1°F (0.6°C)
in the compensation interval (i.e. an interval of 3°F
means a 12% increase). The curtain's Off Time is
decreased by the same amount.
Stopping Fans in Natural Vent.
Whisker switches are used to stop some on/off and
variable-speed fan outputs when the controller is in
natural ventilation. These switches tell when the
curtains are sufficiently opened.
When temperature rises (point A on the graphic):
The controller gradually opens the curtain as temperature rises. It can also disable a chosen selection of fans when the curtain is sufficiently opened
(when the curtain has reached its whisker switch).
When temperature falls (point B on the graphic):
At point B, the curtain is already opened and the
fans are stopped. The controller gradually closes
the curtain as temperature falls. The controller restarts the fans when the curtain closes and releases
its whisker switch.

Tunnel Doors
The controller can control 2 tunnel doors. It opens
these doors gradually as the room temperature increases.
Beginning of tunnel ventilation
The activation of tunnel ventilation is linked with
the activation of a user-defined fan stage: when
the start temperature of that chosen fan stage is
reached, the tunnel door opens during the opening
time associated with that stage. The activation of
every consecutive fan stages causes the tunnel door
to open further. The stage at which the tunnel door
fully opens is also defined by the user.
Minimum age
A minimum age can be specified to avoid entering
in tunnel ventilation when the animals are too
young. This feature is optional and can only be used
if age-based functions are enabled in the Installation Setup (section 4.5).
Tunnel Door
Opening (time)
Minimum outside temperature
A minimum outside temperature can be specified
to avoid entering in tunnel ventilation when it is
too cold outside. This feature is optional and can
only be used if an outside temperature probe is
enabled (sec. 4.7.1).
Opening times
The user must associate an opening of the tunnel
door to each tunnel fan stage. When a tunnel fan
stage starts, tunnel doors open according to the
opening time associated to that stage. Opening
times are set separately for each tunnel door.
Reference temperature in tunnel ventilation
The selection of probes that is used to measure
the room temperature can be changed in tunnel
ventilation to compensate for changes in airflow
patterns that can distort the room temperature calculation. The user must select at what fan stage
the second probe set starts being used.

Timer-based Air Inlets
The controller can control the opening of two air
inlets. It can either control the first inlet in timer
mode or with a potentiometer; the second air inlet
can only operate in timer mode. Set the operating
mode of the first air inlet in the Installation Setup
(section 4.5).
6.5.1
Principle of Operation
When timer-based inlets are used, the user must
first specify the total time that is required to fully
open each inlet. Then, the user must associate an
inlet opening with the start-up of each fan stage
(inlet openings are defined as a percentage of the
total opening time). As the room temperature increases and new stages are activated, air inlets will
open or close accordingly.
Inlet opening in minimum ventilation
The inlet is at its “Closed” position during the Off
Time portion of a minimum ventilation cycle and
opens to its minimum ventilation position during the
On Time.
Over-opening of air inlets
A supplementary stage can be defined in order to
continue opening air inlets beyond the activation temperature of the last ventilation stage. This overopening stage is used to direct the airflow more efficiently during periods of warm weather. When all
reference points of ventilation stages are defined,
the user can specify the temperature at which air
inlets reach their over-opening position (Start T° of
the last stage + over-opening bandwidth).

Opening of the inlets in a
variable-speed fan stage
When variable-speed fan stages are used, the
user must associate an inlet opening with the
beginning and with the end of each variable
stage. Once this is done, it is possible to subdivide this opening into 0 to 2 intermediate opening steps to progressively open the inlet during
the stage.
When intermediate opening steps are used, the
controller splits up the inlet opening of the variable stage evenly between the number of intermediate steps (e.g., if one intermediate step
is enabled, the controller will open the inlet
twice during the variable stage (50% of the
stage opening at the first intermediary step,
50 % at the end of the stage).
Inlets open to their intermediate positions when
the variable stage reaches predefined fan
speeds. These fan speeds are set differently
depending on the number of intermediate steps
in use. For instance, if 1 intermediate step is
enabled, the inlet opens during half of the variable stage's opening when the stage's speed is
of 75 %; it reaches the stage's HI opening position when the fan stage reaches 100 %.

Resetting the Actuator’s Position
Resetting the actuator’s position is used to clear
accumulated time offets caused by the frequent
openings and closings of the inlet. The controller
resets the actuator’s position at regular intervals
to make sure the inlet position is always accurate.
This reset is performed automatically according to
one of these two methods:
•
•
Reset the minimum position only
(Close mode)
Each time a reset is performed, the inlet totally closes. Once the actuator’s position is
reset, the inlet returns to its previous position. The “Close” pilot light of the inlet
flashes while the controller closes the inlet.
Reset toward the nearest position
(Open/Close mode)
If the current inlet position is higher than
50% at the reset time, the controller fully
opens the inlet to reset the actuator’s position; if the current inlet position is lower than
50%, the controller closes the inlet to perform the reset. This way, the inlet never closes
when the room temperature already asks for
a wide opening. The “Open” or “Close” pilot
light of the inlet flashes while the controller
moves the inlet.
Make sure limit switches are
located at both ends of the
actuators when using this resetting method.

Air Inlets with Potentiometer
The controller can control the opening of two air
inlets. It can either control the first inlet in timer
mode or with a potentiometer; the second air inlet
can only operate in timer mode. Set the operating
mode of the first air inlet in the Installation Setup
(section 4.5).
6.6.1
Principle of Operation
When potentiometer-based inlets are used, the user
associate an inlet opening with the start-up of each
fan stage. As the room temperature increases and
new stages are activated, air inlets will open or close
accordingly.
Inlet opening in minimum ventilation
The inlet is at its “Closed” position during the Off
Time portion of a minimum ventilation cycle and
opens to its minimum ventilation position during the
On Time.
Over-opening of the air inlet
A supplementary stage can be programmed in order to continue opening the air inlet beyond the activation temperature of the last ventilation stage.
This over-opening stage is used to direct the airflow
more efficiently during periods of warm weather.
When all reference points of ventilation stages are
defined, the user can specify the temperature at
which the air inlet reaches its over-opening position
(Start T° of the last stage + over-opening bandwidth).
Security function
If the potentiometer is defective, the
controller will operate in security mode:
if the room temperature is 2°F (1.1°C)
above the set point, the inlet opens according to
the following cycle: 8 seconds ON, 60 seconds
OFF. If the room temperature is 2°F (1.1°C) below the set point, the inlet closes according to the
same cycle.

0-10V Air Inlets
•
The controller has two 0-10V outputs that can either be used to control heat lamps, heat mats, inlets or fans. To operate these outputs, the controller refers to the average temperature reading of
their assigned temperature probes (see sec. 4.7.3).
This section shows how a 0-10V inlet output works.
A 0-10V air inlet works exactly the same as a potentiometer-based air inlet but does not need to be
calibrated.
0-10V Mode: Automatic / Manual
You can manually control the opening of a 0-10V
output by using the manual control mode. While
this mode is used, the controller stops controlling
the output and lets you choose the inlet opening.

Principle of operation:
The cool cell output can either operate according
to the inside temperature or outside temperature:
it starts running in timer mode when the inside (or

Operating temperatures of the cool cell output can
either be related to the set point – which means
the controller automatically adjusts them when the
set point changes – or they can be set as absolute

Misting Output
The controller can control one misting output. When
the room temperature reaches the start temperature of the output, mist units are activated and run
in timer mode according to their minimum timer
(Min On Time & Min Off Time). Then, as temperature rises, a gradual transition is made from the
minimum timer towards the maximum timer (Max
On Time & Max Off Time). The second mist timer
is fully used when the room temperature reaches
the Maximum Temperature parameter setting. The
misting output is disabled when the temperature
falls below a user-defined value. It can also stop
when humidity levels are too high (see RH Compensation in chapter 10).

6.10 Stir Fans
The controller can control one stir fan output.
This output can operate in three different ways:
1. Stir fans in hot temperature conditions:
If the temperature in the room is too high, stir
fans can be enabled to create an air draft to
cool down the animals. When they are used
for this purpose, stir fans start operating continuously when the room temperature reaches
the output’s start temperature. The output is
disabled when the temperature falls below its
stop temperature (see graph on the right).
2. Stir fans in cold temperature conditions:
When the room temperature is too low, stir
fans can be activated to disperse the warm
air produced by heating units uniformly
throughout the building. When they are used
for this purpose, stir fans start running in timer
mode when the room temperature falls below
the output’s start temperature. They are disabled when the room temperature rises and
reaches the output’s stop temperature (see
graph on the right).
3. Stir fans used to reduce temperature differences between probes:
Stir fans can start running in timer mode when
there is a considerable temperature difference
between the reading of two probes. This function is used to ensure the uniformity of the
temperature in the house. When they are used
for this purpose, stir fans start running when
the difference of temperature between two
probes exceeds a user-defined temperature
limit; they stop when the temperature difference between the probes gets 0.5°F (0.3°C)
below the limit (see graph on the right).
Start / stop temperatures:
Operating temperatures of the stir fan output
can either be related to the set point – which
means the controller automatically adjusts
them when the set point changes – or they
can be set as absolute values. Refer to the
Installation Setup chapter to choose if the
output follows the set point or not (sec. 4.5).

0-10V
The controller has two 0-10V outputs that can either be used to control heat lamps, heat mats, inlets or fans. To operate these outputs, the controller refers to the average temperature reading of
their assigned temperature probes (see sec. 4.7.3).
This section explains how 0-10V heat lamps work.
0-10V heat lamps start at their minimum intensity
when the temperature falls below the start temperature of the output. The intensity of heat lamps
increases as the temperature decreases; the maximum intensity is reached when the temperature falls
below the Max. Temperature parameter setting.

RH COMPENSATION
The controller offers different way to compensate
for high/low relative humidity (RH) levels in the
room. All compensation functions are explained
below. To use them, you must enable each desired
compensation function in section 4.6.
•
High RH Compensation on the
Minimum Ventilation Rate:
The controller can compensate for high RH
levels by enhancing the speed of variablespeed fans in minimum ventilation. When this
compensation function is used, the controller adjusts the minimum ventilation rate as
a function of the indoor RH level. As the
humidity level increases, the controller increases the speed of both variable outputs.
The following graph shows how the RH compensation can influence the minimum ventilation speed.
When the RH level exceeds the set point, the controller starts increasing the minimum ventilation fan
rate of variable output 1; when the RH level is 5%
above the RH set point, the variable output 1 continues increasing in speed and the controller starts
increasing the fan speed of variable output 2. The
full compensated speed of both variable outputs is
reached when the relative humidity level is 10%
above the RH set point.

12.2 Alarm Conditions
Temperature Alarms
Temperature Alarms in Clean Mode
The diagram below shows how temperature alarms
are detected.
The controller can monitor low temperature alarms
when it is in clean mode. If this alarm condition is
used, the controller sounds an alarm when the temperature falls below low alarm limit that is associated to the clean mode.
When the average room temperature exceeds the
high temperature alarm setting, a high temperature alarm is set off. When the average room temperature decreases below the low temperature
alarm setting, a low temperature alarm is set off.
Although these settings are entered by the user as
absolute values, they are defined based on the room
set point. They are thus automatically adjusted if
the set point changes.
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 set off 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 set off.
ALARM
LIMITS
Detection of
Temperature Alarms
The low alarm limit used in clean mode is related
to the clean mode set point; this means the alarm
limit is automatically adjusted when the clean mode
set point changes.
Water Spill Alarm
A water spill alarm sets off when the consumption
of a water meter exceeds its respective consumption limit. This limit can be adjusted from 0 to 10,000
gallons or liters per 15 minutes.
Static Pressure Alarms
The controller can sound an alarm when the static
pressure (SP) level exceeds high or low pressure
limits for a certain period of time.
Feeder Alarm
The controller sets off an alarm if a feeder runs
continuously on a too long period of time. When
this type of alarm occurs, the relay associated with
the problematic feeder opens in order to stop the
feeder motor. This alarm condition is optional.
