1.3.2. What’s New
1.3.3. Main Features
The controller now uses a new and improved
core platform. Here’s the list of improvements
related to this new platform:
Very large LCD display — A large screen
provides an efficient interface for displaying,
monitoring and adjusting the parameters.
Screen contrast — The screen contrast can
now be modified directly from the TRANSFER menu.
4 Controller programs — The controller has
4 programs to control the room temperature.
You can thus choose a program that suits the
current age of the animals for instance.
Stability of the screen contrast — The controller now ensures stability in the screen
contrast when the display is submitted to
temperature changes.
A-BOX Ready — The high speed communication protocol required to connect the controller to the A-BOX system can now be activated
from the TRANSFER menu. There is no need
to change a microchip inside the controller to
change the communication speed.
Easier firmware updates — Platform firmware
updates can now be downloaded from a USB
card (see TRANSFER menu). There is no need
to change a microchip inside the controller to
make this update.
Simplified firmware — The new core platform
now uses one firmware only.
Memory card — The classic memory card
(Config200 card) has been replaced by a standard USB drive (included with the controller).
Improved navigation process — Scroll bars,
pop-up menus and page-up/ page-down functions were added to ease navigation inside
the menus.
Less controller reset — Instead of resetting
when there is instability in the power supply,
the controller now displays a “Zero Crossing”
alarm message.
Event buffer — The controller’s event log can
be saved on the USB card (see TRANSFER
menu).
Status LEDs — Pilot lights indicate the status
of the controller’s outputs, allowing you to
monitor the system’s operation without having to enter the building.
Natural ventilation — The controller can control up to 4 curtains located in independent
natural zones.
Minimum ventilation cycle — When ventilation is not required to reduce the room
temperature, the fan outputs can run either
continuously or intermittently to reduce the
humidity level and supply oxygen to the room.
Tunnel curtain control — An endwall curtain
can be controlled according to the room temperature or according to the static pressure
level in the house.
Probe readings recorded for past days — The
controller keeps a daily record of the minimum
and maximum readings of the static pressure
and humidity probes for the past 75 days.
The minimum and maximum readings of each
individual temperature probe is also recorded
daily for the past 7 days.
Vent doors — The controller can open and
close vent doors according to a timer at the
start-up of each fan stage or it can coordinate
the vent door operation with the static pressure level of the room.
Password protection — A password is used
to restrict access to some of the controller
setup functions.
Water monitoring — Ten pulse inputs are provided to monitor the water consumption. The
controller keeps a daily record of the water
consumption for the past 60 days.
Backup battery — A backup battery allows
the unit to keep time in case of a power
failure.
Alarm management — Alarms are provided
for high-low temperatures, defective probes
and other system failures. The controller
keeps in memory the 25 previous alarm
conditions.
Overload and overvoltage protection — Resettable fuses are provided at low-voltage
inputs and outputs of the controller to protect its circuitry in the case of an overload
or overvoltage.
Eight independent temperature probe inputs
— Eight inside temperature probes can be
connected to the controller in order to obtain
an accurate reading of the average house
temperature and a faster reaction time.
Computer control — The controller can be
connected to a computer, thus making it
possible to centralize the management of
information and diversify control strategies.
0-10V outputs — Four 0-10V outputs can be
used to activate additional fans, heat mats,
or lights.
CC24-7 ELITE rev.23
Recuperation of the warm air in the attic — In
order to make energy savings, the controller
can extract the warm air from the attic and
send it back into the room.
Removable connectors — You can remove
the connectors from the main board to make
the connections.
Humidity Control — The control offers many
ways to compensate for high or low humidity levels.
6
Control of the air inlet movement — If the
controller is used in combination with one or
more air inlet modules, the movement of air
inlets can be coordinated with the operation
of the fans, using a potentiometer located on
the panel drive. This allows the air inlets to
be adjusted correctly, without the influence
of uncontrollable factors such as wind or air
from adjoining rooms.
Test mode — The test mode allows the user
to simulate temperature changes and verify
the performances of the controller.

2. MOUNTING INSTRUCTIONS
2.2. Connections
2.2.3. Probe Inputs
2.2.1. Main Wiring
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.
Probes operate at low voltage and are isolated
from the supply. Make sure that probe cables
remain isolated from all high voltage sources.
In particular, do not route the probe cables
through the same electrical knockout as other
cables. Do not connect the shield from the
probe cable to a terminal or a ground.
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.
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.
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.
Extending a probe: Each probe can be extended up to 500 feet (150 meters).
To extend a probe: 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.
It is preferable to solder the cable joint to
ensure a proper contact between the two
cables.
Do not run probe cables next to other
power cables. When crossing over other
cables, cross at 90°.
Defective probes: An alarm is generated when
a defective probe is detected. Defective
probes are identified in the “Alarm Log” menu.
Refer to chapter 11 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.

2.3. Installing Static Pressure Sensor Tubings
The integrated static pressure sensor is a very
robust and reliable tool for controlling your
vent door openings. However, the installation
requires some care in order to ensure that
the controller functions properly. 10’ of clear
tubing and insect filters are provided with the
controller. Insert a plastic insect filter at the
end of each tube as illustrated. Leave a clearance between the end of the tube and the
plastic filter to avoid obstructing the tube.

a) Using the Attic as a Reference
ii) The attic must be airtight with respect
to the adjacent livestock floor. This way, no
pressure difference is induced between the
reference (attic) and outside pressure due to
the action of a fan. To test the airtightness of
the attic with respect to the ventilated room,
place the reference tube in the attic and the
room tube outside or in a room with wide
openings to the outside. There should be no
sensitive pressure drop when you activate or
deactivate the fans in the space next to the
attic. No vacuum should build up in the attic.
The attic is usually considered a good reference as long as the following conditions are
observed:
i) The attic must have sufficient openings on
all sides of the building to allow outside air
to permeate it and ensure that no permanent
pressure difference builds up between the attic and outside air (usually, an attic with openings covering 4% of its area is sufficient).
To test the suitability of the attic as a reference, place the “reference” tube in the attic
and the “room” tube outside or in a room with
wide openings to the outside (for example, the
entrance of a house with wide open doors so
the pressure in the room is the outside pressure). The pressure difference must be near
zero. You’ll notice that the wind may induce
a pressure difference for short periods of time
(because of a “breathing” effect). This is the
reason the pressure sensor has a time delay
on any action.
The attic is a good reference if you don’t see
any permanent pressure difference.
Choosing a Good Reference
The purpose of the static pressure sensor is
to maintain a slight vacuum inside the building
as compared to the outside atmospheric pressure. This pressure difference (usually in the
order of 0.03 to 0.09 inches of water) induces
the desired air speed at the vent door for an
optimum airflow distribution. It is important
to understand that the pressure difference to
be controlled is the one that exists between
either side of the vent door wall. We must
therefore be sure that the reference is representative of the current outside pressure.

CC24-7 ELITE
Installation of an Extended Reference Tube
into the Attic: It may happen that the supplied 10’ of clear tubing isn’t long enough to
close the airflow circuit between the room
and the attic (reference). In this case, we
recommend installing the controller within
10’ of the room to be controlled. Use the
clear tubing to reach the room and extend the
reference tube with a larger pipe or tube (1”
pipe is good) to the location of the reference
(see diagram). At the reference location, the
opening of the pipe should be as large as its
section. It should point downwards, using an
elbow if necessary, and be protected from
any direct airflow from the outside. The use
of a coarse screen is recommended to stop
insects from plugging up the pipe. Once the
installation is completed, perform the above
tests to validate the reference.
Averaging Two Sides of the Building: Some
attics are not suitable as a reference because
they have eave openings only on one side or
they have only ridge openings. In this case,
we recommend using a reference box in the
attic connected to extended reference tubes.
This box should be airtight and mounted in the
center of the attic. It should be connected to
two 1” tubes that extend to either side of the
building at 25” from the building end. Connect the supplied clear tube to the reference
side of the pressure sensor and make a loop
close to the controller. Connect the extended
reference tube to the box.

b) Using An Extended Outdoor
Reference
If, for any reason, the attic fails to meet one
or both of the above two conditions, or if the
building does not have an attic, you should
consider using an outside reference.
A good place to start is on the inlet side of
the room, at a minimum distance of 25 feet
from any corner of the building to avoid a wind
vacuum effect. The tube should be installed
in a box or a restricted space to avoid undesirable sun and wind effects. Avoid mounting
the box in the airflow path into the building.
Stay at least 2 feet from the inlet opening.
The box should be filled with mineral wool
to absorb most of the fluctuations caused by
the wind. Make at least thirty holes of ¼”
on the sides and bottom of the box (do not
make holes on the top).
Use the clear tube to reach the room and
make a moisture trap loop. On the reference
side, use the supplied clear tube, make a loop
and join the extended reference tube. The
extended reference tube should have a bigger
diameter (1” is good). Run the extended tube
to the location of the reference. Make a loop
on the way to trap moisture if undesirable
airflows occur. This trap should include a plug
to drain the water. Try to run the pipe inside
the building as much as possible.

4.7.3.1. Ventilation Relays : Principle of Operation
TIMER-BASED RELAYS ON FAN STAGES
Timer-based relays run according to a timer as
long as their associated fan stage is on. They
are useful to run devices that need to follow
the same progression as fan stages in timer
mode. Section 4.7.3.1 shows how to activate
timer-based relays and section 4.7.3.2 shows
how to set the timer.

4.7.5. Clock Output Relays
4.7.5.1. Clock Output Relays
4.7.6. Cooling Output Relays
The following procedure shows how to assign
clock outputs relays. It also explains the principle of operation of the common relays.
Select the relays that are associated with
each clock output.
Select the relays that are associated with
each activated cooling output as follows:
Common Relays: It is possible to match the
activation of some outputs with the activation of clock outputs; i.e. all outputs that
share a common relay must be activated
simultaneously for the relay to switch. This
function may be used to deactivate an output
during night or on specific days of the week
for instance. Devices that share common
relays with clock outputs are thus stopped
when the clock output is off. This is true for
all type of outputs except for fan stages and
cooling outputs: these outputs’ relays are not
affected by common relays.
Example of how to deactivate an output
during night:
1. Heater 4 uses relay 6;
2. Relay 6 is also used by clock output
1 and is a common relay.
3. Clock output 1 is disabled during
night.
Result : Heater 4 operates normally as
long as clock output 1 is active but cannot be enabled during night while the
clock output is off.

5. TEMPERATURE SETTINGS
5.1. Temperature Set Point
The set point is a target temperature; the activation and deactivation of the various stages
is based on this reference temperature.
NIGHT SET POINT: A night set point can be
enabled to lower the target room temperature
during night. This set point is relative to the
regular temperature set point, which means
that if the regular set point changes with time,
the night set point is adjusted accordingly.
To use a night set point, enable the night set
point function in the installation in section 4.5
and set the time at which the night begins
in section 4.1.1.
SET POINT CURVES: Use a temperature
curve to get an automatic adjustment of the
set points over a given period of time. The
target temperature is thus always adapted
to the animals’ needs as they grow. Refer to
section 5.1.2 for further information about
the curves.

6.1.3. Min Vent. Ramp & Compensation
6.1.3.2. On Time Compensation
Below the Set Point
6.1.3.1. Stage 1 On Time Ramp
The controller has the capability of automatically adjusting the running time of the
minimum ventilation fans as a function of
outside temperature. As the weather gets
colder, the on time is decreased gradually to
compensate for the change. This can help
reduce costs by reducing the ventilation when
it is not required. A curve is used to calculate
the required compensation as a percentage of
current on time (see graph below). Only the
running time is adjusted; the total cycle time
remains unchanged.
The controller has a ramping function to
smooth out the transition from minimum
ventilation to the full operation of the stage 1
fans; the fans’ running time can be automatically adjusted to achieve a gradual increase
or decrease in the ventilation level. This
function is used when stage 1 does not use
variable fans.
When the room temperature is at or below
the set point, the fans of stage 1 operate
according to the minimum ventilation cycles.
When the room temperature increases above
the set point, a new On Time is calculated
periodically as the temperature increases to
allow a smooth progression (from point A to
point B) up to full operation of the fans when
the start temperature of stage 1 is reached.
If the room temperature decreases to stage
1’s stop temperature, the ON TIME value
of the minimum ventilation cycle decreases
gradually from a value equal to the total cycle
time (point C) to the value defined by the
ramping function.

The controller uses two user-defined ramping delays to determine when to adjust the
ramping cycle. Ramping delay 1 is used when
the outside temperature is greater than the
outside set point (it is also used permanently
if no outside temperature probe is used);
ramping delay 2 is used when the outside
temperature is below the outside set point.
If the difference between the current on
time value and the on time value calculated
by the ramping algorithm is greater than the
ramping delay, the on time value becomes the
calculated value.

If the next stage is an ON/OFF fan stage,
the variable output is deactivated when the
new stage starts. If the next stage is another
VARIABLE fan stage, the speed of the first
variable fan stage is reduced to minimum
when the second variable fan stage starts.
This allows a smooth transition between
both stages. The graph below sums up the
situation:
6.2.1.2. Variable Outputs
Stg y
Variable outputs are activated when their associated fan stage starts (sec. 4.7). They are
enabled at their minimum speed, as defined in
section 4.4, and gradually increase in speed as
the room temperature increases. They reach
their full speed when the start temperature of
the following fan stage is attained.

* Starting Speed:
The variable outputs used in VAR (variable)
in stage 1 or 2 start at the same speed as
defined for the minimum ventilation cycles
(sec. 6.1.1.2).
The variable outputs used in VAR (variable)
within Stage 3 and higher start at their absolute
minimum speed (as defined in section 4.5).
The bandwidth defines the interval over which
the variable output goes from its minimum to
its full speed. This is true even if full speed is
never reached as in the example above. When
the start temperature of stage 2 is reached,
the variable output decreases to its minimum
speed. V1 bandwidth is then used to increase
the fan speed as the temperature increases.
When the temperature decreases below stage
2’s start temperature, the minimum fan speed
is maintained until the stage’s stop temperature is reached.
The last fan stage must not be configured
in variable mode. If the last fan stage
uses a variable output, it must be used
as an on/off output (sec. 4.7).

6.3. Tunnel Curtain
The controller can control up to 2 endwall curtains for tunnel ventilation. These curtains can
either controlled by the static pressure (SP) level
or they can move according to a timer. Refer
to section 4.5 to select the proper operating
principle (Timed/SP).
6.3.1. Static Pressure Curtains
6.3.1.1. Principle of Operation
The controller can control 2 pressure-based
tunnel curtains. To enable the first tunnel curtain output, answer “Yes” to the “Use Tunnel”
question in the installation menu and set the
tunnel mode to “SP”. To use the second inlet
output as a pressure-based tunnel curtain,
enable the 2nd inlet output in the installation
menu and set it as being a tunnel curtain that
works according to static pressure (refer to
section 6.5).
The tunnel curtains start opening when the
fan stage that signals the beginning of tunnel
ventilation is reached. At that moment, the
curtains start being controlled according to
the pressure level.

Static pressure Groups: Two groups of static
pressure settings can be defined for the tunnel curtain. These groups allow using different high/low pressure limits as the room
temperature changes. The second group of
pressure settings starts being used at the
start-up of a user-defined fan stage.

(refer to section 4.5 to enable/disable the
Multiple Tunnel w/ Age function).
Example: When the start temperature of
stage 7 is reached, the tunnel curtain starts
using the second group of static pressure

Inlets & Vent Doors
1. First Inlet Output:
The first inlet output can either be used to
control vent doors (pressure or timer-based)
or it can be used to connect up to 10 external
air inlet modules such as the SB3000 (potentiometer feedback control) or the SB3500
(timer-based inlet control).
To determine the use of the first inlet output,
set the “Vent Door Mode” parameter properly in
the installation menu (see section 4.5).
2. Second Inlet Output:
The 2nd inlet output can either be used to control an attic vent, a sidewall vent (vent door)
or a supplementary tunnel curtain. To enable
the second inlet output, select the proper
output function in the installation menu (“Use

The air inlet that is connected to the second
output can either operate according to the
static pressure level or in timer mode, as a
function of room temperature. Refer to section 4.5 to choose the proper function and
operating mode of the second inlet output
(“Attic Mode” or “2nd Inlet Mode” parameter).

CC24-7 ELITE
6.4.1. Inlet on External SB Modules
• Static Pressure Compensation:
• Temperature Compensation:
The first inlet output can be used to connect
external air inlet controllers (SB modules).
To program the air inlets that are connected
to these SB modules, you must refer to the
user’s manual enclosed with your particular
module (SB3000 or SB3500)
A compensation can be used to ensure a certain uniformity in the static pressure level in
the room. This static pressure compensation
allows opening or closing inlets further when
the static pressure level gets out of range.
A compensation can be activated to ensure a
certain uniformity in the room temperature:
the air inlet positions are automatically adjusted when the temperature reading of the
inlets’ probes differs from the average room
temperature read by the controller.
When external SB modules are used to define
the position of the air inlets, the CC24-7 Elite
can still ask these modules to adjust the inlet
opening when the static pressure or the room
temperature gets out of range. This section
explains how these opening compensation
methods work.
No compensation is applied on the inlets
at the startup of a new fan stage. When
a fan stage starts, the controller resets
the current compensation values and
redefines them according to the pressure
& temperature conditions measured at
that time.
The SB3500 limits the compensation
value that can be applied on the air inlets
to 50% of their regular opening. If the
controller sends a compensation request
that exceed this limit the SB Module just
won’t consider it and won’t move the
inlet any further.
When the static pressure level exceeds the
normal range (above the Hi Pressure Set
point or below the Lo Pressure Set Point), the
controller waits for the Wind Effect Delay to
make sure this unusual pressure condition is
not temporary. If the pressure is still out of
range after this delay has elapsed, the inlet
compensation (%) is applied on the opening of
all inlets: they close further by their respective
compensation value (%) when the pressure
level is too low [point A on the graph] or
open further by their compensation value (%)
when the pressure level is too high [point C
on the graph]. The controller then waits for
the Wind Effect Delay once again. If the pressure level is still out of range afterwards, the
opening compensation is applied once more.
This cycle is repeated up until the pressure
gets back in the normal range or until a new
stage starts. When the pressure level gets
back to the normal range [points B & D on
the graph], all inlets keep their compensated
position until the beginning of a new stage.
No compensation is applied on the inlet opening when a new stage starts.
The inlet temperature compensation is expressed as a percentage per degree difference
between the average controller temperature
and the average reading of the probes assigned to the inlet. It determines by how much
the inlet must open or close to help reduce
the temperature differences in the building.
For each degree above or below the average temperature, the inlet will open or close
using the compensation value assigned by
the user. For example, if the compensation
value is set to 2%/°F and the inlet’s probes
read 3°F above the average controller temperature, the inlet will open 6% further to
help decrease the temperature in that zone.
Refer to section 4.6.1 to assign the inlets’
temperature probes.
If a temperature compensation has to be
applied on the position of the air inlets,
the controller only sends a compensation
request of 1% at a time. Refer to the
installation menu to specify the frequency
at which the 1% compensation must
be applied (“Send Compensation Each”
parameter in section 4.5).

6.4.2. Pressure-based Vent Doors
6.4.2.1. Principle of Operation
When a vent door operates according to the
level of static pressure, it closes in timer
mode when the pressure level gets lower
than the Low pressure set point or opens in
timer mode when the pressure level exceeds
the Hi pressure set point.
The controller can control 2 pressure-based
vent door outputs. To enable the first vent
door output, set the “Vent Door Mode” to “SP”
in the installation menu. To use the second
inlet output as a pressure-based vent door,
enable the 2nd inlet output in the installation
menu and set it as being a sidewall vent that
works according to static pressure (refer to
section 6.5).
Pre-opening Delay: If the variables fans are
not used during minimum ventilation, the vent
doors open during a pre-opening time before
the fans start running. The same delay is used
to close the vent doors when the fans stop.
Refer to section 4.5 to set the vent doors’
pre-opening delay.
If an attic vent is used, the vent doors will
not open until the transitional fan stage
is reached (see section 6.4.3).
Groups of static pressure settings: Two
groups of high/low static pressure settings
can be defined. The second group of settings
either starts being used at the start-up of a
chosen fan stage or when the outside temperature reaches a user-defined value. The
following graphs sum both cases.
1. Transition between static pressure settings
– based on the ventilation stages:
Example: When the start temperature of
stage 5 is reached, the vent doors start
operating according to the second group of
static pressure settings; therefore, new high
and low pressure limits are used. The initial
settings become used once again when the
room tempe­­rature decreases below the stop
temperature of stage 5.

6.4.3. Timer-Based Vent Doors
This section only applies to a vent door
output that uses the built-in timer of the
CC24-7 Elite control; if the vent door
uses the timer of an external SB 3500
module, refer to section 6.4.1.
Vent Doors in Minimum Ventilation: During
the “Off Time” portion of a minimum ventilation cycle, the vent doors close to their “Stage
0” position; during the “On Time”, they open
to position associated with stage 1 (or Stage
1 Min – if variable fans are used).
If an attic vent is used, the vent doors will
not open until the transitional fan stage
is reached (see section 6.4.3).
6.4.3.1. Principle of Operation
The controller can control 2 timer-based vent
door outputs. To enable the firrst vent door
output, set the “Vent Door Mode” to “Time” in
the installation menu. To use the second inlet
output as a timer-based vent door, enable the
2nd inlet output in the installation menu and
set it as being a sidewall vent that works according to a timer (refer to section 6.5).
When a vent door output works in timer
mode, you must specify the total amount of
time required to fully open the vent. You must
then associate an opening with the startup of
each fan stage (the opening is defined as a
percentage of the total opening time). As the
room temperature increases and new stages
are activated, the vent doors will open or
close accordingly.
Automatic Reset of the Vent Doors’ Position:
Resetting the actuator’s position clears all
accumulated time offsets caused by the frequent openings and closings of vent doors.
The controller resets the actuator’s position at
regular interval to make sure the vent doors’
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 vent doors totally close. Once the
actuator’s position is reset, they return
to their previous position
• Reset toward the nearest position
(Open/Close mode): Each time a reset is
performed, vent doors fully open if their
current opening already was higher than
25%; otherwise, the controller closes
vent doors to reset the actuator’s position. This way, they do not close when
the room temperature already asks for
a large opening.
An opening step is also added when a variable
fan stage starts (this applies to stages 1 and
2 only). This step is called “Stage x Min”. In
the example above, “Stage x Min” represents
the point where stage 1 fans start running at
their minimum intensity. The regular opening
of the vent door in stage 1 is reached when
the fans reach their full intensity.
Make sure limit switches are
located at both ends of the actuators when using this resetting
method.

6.4.4. Attic Vent
In order to extract the warm air from the
ceiling, the attic vent can open prior to the
opening of sidewall vents.
The second inlet output of the CC24-7 Elite can
be used to control an attic vent (pressure or
timer-based vent). To enable this vent, set the
status of the second inlet output to “Attic” in the
installation menu and then select its operating
mode: “Time” or “SP” (see section 4.5).
6.4.4.1.
Pressure-based Attic Vent
Opening of the Attic Vent: When it is based on
the static pressure level, the attic vent moves
according to the pressure variations in the
building. This is the exact same principle as for
the pressure-based vent door outputs. Refer
to section 6.4.2 to see how a pressure-based
actuator moves.
Activation Period & Transition: When a pressure-based attic vent is used, the air intake
inside the building is exclusively provided
by the attic vent until the room temperature
reaches the startup point of the fan stages
that asks for a transition (“Attic transition
stage”). When this transition begins, the attic
vent stops moving and the vent doors open
during the “Transition Pre-Open Time”. After
this delay, the attic vent either stops moving
or opens completely (depending on the chosen option) and the vent doors start working
normally. The attic vent will close when the
room temperature rises and reaches a userdefined fan stage (“Close at” stage).
Pre-opening Delay: If the variables fans are
not used during minimum ventilation, the
attic vent opens during a pre-opening time
before the fans start running. The same delay
is used to close the attic vent when the fans
stop. Refer to section 4.5 to set the attic vent
pre-opening delay.

6.4.4.2.
Timer-based Attic Vent
Opening of the Attic Vent: When an attic vent
works in timer mode, you must specify the total time that is required to fully open the vent.
You must then associate an opening time to
the startup of each fan stage that precedes
the transition stage. As the room temperature
increases and new stages are activated, the
attic vent will open or close accordingly.
Activation Period & Transition: When a timerbased attic vent is used, the air intake inside
the building is exclusively provided by the
attic vent until the room temperature reaches
the startup point of the fan stages that asks
for a transition (“Attic transition stage”). When
the transition begins, the vent doors start
operating normally and the attic vent either
stops moving or opens completely (depending on the chosen option). The attic vent
finally closes when the room temperature
reaches the fans stage that asks for it to close
(“Close attic at stage”). The air intake becomes
exclusively provided by the vent doors at
that moment.
Attic Vent in Minimum Ventilation: A preopening delay must be defined to open the attic vent when the fans are running in minimum
ventilation (“On Time” portion of the minimum
ventilation timer). Note that the pre-opening
is made prior to the activation of the fans at
the beginning of each cycle.

Attic State in Transition — Specify what the
attic vent must do during a transition stage:
it can either stay in place (“As is”) or it can
open for its total run time (“Open’).
Total Attic Run Time — Specify the exact
time that is required to reach the actuator’s
maximum limit switch. The controller will
limit opening of the attic vent according to

The cooling output starts operating according to a timer (On Time & Off Time) when its
start temperature is reached. The output’s
timer gradually changes as the temperature
increases. It reaches the max timer settings
(Max On Time & Max Off Time) when the
house temperature reaches the Maximum Run
Temperature. Start and stop temperatures of
cooling outputs are related to the house set
point. This means that when the house set
point changes, start and stop temperatures
are adjusted consequently.
You can specify an operating time range
in order to stop cooling outputs during
night.
Since they are related to the set point, the On
and Off temperatures of the cooling outputs
are likely to change with time. For this reason,
a temperature limit can be defined to avoid
activating the cooling outputs when the room
temperature is not high enough to ensure
water evaporation (see following graph).

6.6.1. Principle of Operation
The curtains operate according to the average
temperature in their respective zones. Their
opening and closing temperatures are related
to the room set point, which means they are
adjusted consequently when a change in
the set point occurs. Refer to section 4.6.1
to assign the temperature probes located in
each natural zone.
6.6.2. Transition Between Natural
& Tunnel Ventil.
1. NATURAL VENTILATION –> TUNNEL
VENTILATION:
• Natural ventilation begins when the room
temperature reaches the start temperature
of a user-defined fan stage (Start Natural at
Stage). At that moment, the controller opens
all natural ventilation curtains during their
respective Initial Opening Time.
When the room temperature increases and
reaches the Open at temperature of the natural
ventilation curtain [point A on the picture], the
curtain opens in timer mode [point B on the
picture]. If the tunnel curtain is also used in
natural ventilation, it will also open following this timer. When the room temperature
reaches the start temperature of the first
tunnel stage [point C on the picture], the natural
ventilation curtain stays still during the Natural
Close Delay (5 minutes by default) then fully
closes. Here is what happens to the tunnel
curtain when the first tunnel stage is reached:
• Once the controller is in natural ventilation,
the curtains start operating in timer mode:
they open according to an opening cycle (Open
Time & Off Time) when the average temperature
in their respective zone is above the Open
At temperature; they close according to the
closing cycle (Close Time & Off Time) when the
temperature in their zone is lower than the

start/stop temperatures. In other words the
hi fire option allows doubling the number
of heating outputs. Refer to section 4.5 to
activate the heaters’ hi fire option.
Operating Temp. of the Heating Outputs:
• Start Temperature: The start temperature of
each heating output is related to the set point.
This means that if the set point changes, the
start temperature is adjusted consequently.
• Stop Temperature: If the heating curve and
the Hi/Lo Fire options are both disabled, the
stop temperature of each heating output is
related to the set point (this means that if
the set point changes, the stop temperature
is adjusted consequently). If the heating
curve or the Hi/Lo Fire option is enabled, the
stop temperature for a given heating output
becomes based on the start temperature
of the output (this means that if the start
temperature of the output changes, the stop
temperature is adjusted consequently).

This curve allows an automatic adjustment of
the heaters’ start temperature over time.
The heaters’ start temperature changes using
10 steps. Each step specifies a day number
and a start temperature for that day. The day
number is based on the animal age. Once the
10 steps are defined, the curve must be activated. The controller then starts changing
the heaters’ start temperature every hour in
a linear fashion between consecutive steps
of the curve. When the last step is reached,
the start temperature of the heaters for that
day is maintained until a new batch starts and
until the animal age is reset.

9. CLOCK OUTPUTS
The controller has 8 outputs to control various
devices using the ­­real-time clock.
Notes:
To run a clock output continuously, set all of
its start and stop times to 12:00AM.
An alarm sets off if a clock program is
not set properly; i.e., if an activated
program does not have any start time.
This usually occurs when the start and
stop times of a program are all set to
the same value (other than 12:00AM).
When this happens, the controller keeps
using the previous clock program until
the defective program is corrected.
Refer to section 4.5 to:
- enable clock outputs;
- enable clock programs;
- select the proper time increment for
adjusting start/run/stop times;
- select the proper operating mode for
clock outputs 5-8.
CLOCK OUTPUTS 1 TO 4 :
Clock outputs 1-4 can use up to 4 programs
each. Each of the 4 programs is composed
of 10 start and stop times and the program
selection is made as a function of the animal age. Note that program 1 automatically
comes into effect once it is programmed.

Low High Temperature Offset — The Hi and
low offsets are the number of degrees below
and above the set point at which a temperature alarm sets off. The low temperature limit
ranges from 20°F to 0.5°F (11.1 to 0.3°C)
below the set point (Lo Offset). The high temperature limit ranges from 0.5°F to 35°F (0.3
to 19.4°C) above the set point (Hi Offset).
Outside Influence — The outside temperature
influence is the number of degrees that are
added to the outside temperature to avoid
false alarms on warm days. Refer to the
previous diagram.
Critical Temperature — The critical temperature is the absolute maximum temperature
that is allowed in the room.
High Breaker Alarm — If the temperature of
the main breaker is monitored by a probe, set
the probe temperature over which a breaker
temperature alarm must sound. *Accessible

11.2.2.Static Pressure Alarms
11.2.2.1. SP Alarm Settings:
The controller can generate an alarm if the
static pressure decreases below the low pressure limit or if it exceeds the high pressure
limit. The alarm condition must be maintained
during a user-defined delay before the alarm
sets off.
1.Select:
Lo Static Pressure Alarm:
You can assign a relay that will be activated
if a Low Static Pressure Alarm occurs. This
relay may be used to activate a fan for instance. When a low static pressure alarm
occurs, this relay turns on for a 15 minutes. If
the static pressure level is still below the Low
Pressure Limit after this delay has elapsed,
the relay keeps running for another 15 minutes, up until the pressure level returns in the
normal range.
* This menu is accessible if the static pressure sensor
is enabled (sec. 4.5).
Low Static Pressure Alarm Curve
The controller can automatically change the
low static pressure alarm limit with time. With
the low SP alarm curve, you can program 3
different low pressure alarm limits and the
moment at which each limit starts being
used is defined as a function of the animal
age. Refer to the installation setup section
of this manual to enable the Low SP Curve
(section 4.5).
HI Static Pressure Alarm:
When a high static pressure alarm occurs, the
controller can open vent doors and the tunnel
curtain. The curtain or vent doors open during
a user-defined delay (Open-Time) and then
stay still for 15 minutes (this time includes the
Open-Time). If the pressure level still exceeds
the Hi Static Pressure Limit after 15 minutes,
the same cycle starts over again, up until the
pressure level goes back in the normal range.

Monitoring the Animal
Age & Number
Animal Age: The controller uses the animal
age as a reference to find its position in the
various curves (minimum ventilation and set
point curves). It also uses this age to activate
the proper light program and to limit the tunnel ventilation level. Using the animal age
is optional, refer to section 4.5 to enable or
disable animal age functions.
Number of animals: At the beginning of a
batch, you must specify what is the initial
number of animals in the room. You must
then post up every variation in the number
of animals (mortalities & culled animals).
This way, the controllers keeps track of the
number of remaining and dead animal within
a batch.
ALL histories are reset when a new
batch starts.
Exit: Press Back
Press
to select an item
New Mortality — Post up the mortalities as
they occur. Once you have entered a value,
the controller validates it and displays “0” afterwards. The controller then adds this value
to the total number of mortalities and removes
it from the remaining animal count.
Total Mortality — This is the total number of
mortalities since the beginning of the batch.
This value is displayed as a reading and cannot be modified.
Remaining Count — This is the total number
of animals remaining in the house. Initial
Count - Total Mortality.
Start New Batch — When a new batch starts
the controller resets all histories. The remaining count goes back to the initial count and
the total number of mortalities goes back to
zero. Once you have answered “Yes” to the
Start New Batch question, the controller
validates the answer then displays “No” again
meaning the new batch has just started.
