DVS | -30RF-2 | G3 Operating Guide

OPERATING GUIDELINES
DVS-G3® ‘THIRD GENERATION’ SYSTEM
Introduction
Your DVS® system is at the forefront of practical technology, using
intelligent software to control airflow, ventilate your home efficiently and
maximise the indoor air quality in your home.
On installation of your DVS®, we tailor its settings to the size and layout of
your home so that it will operate with optimum efficiency. There are three
seasonal settings (‘winter’, ‘summer’ and ‘other’ (used for autumn and
spring) called Presets. You will need to activate the change between these
presets at the appropriate date (we have not automated this because
seasons are different through NZ and from year to year).
Apart from changing seasons, it is possible for you to change some other
settings to fine tune your DVS®. We recommend that you do this only after the DVS® has been in
operation for a month or so and you have an appreciation of its operation and affect on your home.
These Operating Guidelines explain how you can:
View the current status and settings of your G3® system; and
Change and fine-tune your G3® settings.
We have included information about changing your filter and some frequently asked questions
about the G3® in the appendices to this guide. You will find other frequently asked questions about
home ventilation in general in our booklet ‘General Guidelines and Principles for All DVS ® Systems’.
Viewing Your Current Status and Settings
To view the status of your DVS® and its current settings go to the LCD touch screen control panel
and touch any part of the LCD screen.
This moves you from Screen-Saver mode to the Current Status screen, which will display the
current status of your DVS® as described below.
NOTE: Warning or Reminder Screens.
Your LCD screen will alternate between white and black and a warning or reminder will be shown
in faint text if:
The power to your DVS® system has been interrupted and the CLOCK needs to be reset
(see ‘Resetting or Changing Your Clock’ page 6);
Your air filter is due to be serviced (see ‘Changing Your Filter Service Reminder’ page 6 and
Appendix 2); or
It is time to change the pre-set fro the season (see ‘Changing Seasons’ page 5).
In all cases the screen will flash once every 20-30 seconds. Touching the screen once will
activate the screen so you can read the message easily.
If a picture of a small child holding a stop sign is showing in the top right hand corner of the
screen, this indicates that the CHILD LOCK is on. You will need to deactivate the child lock before
you can proceed. To do this follow the steps set out in ‘Changing the Child Lock FUNCTION’ on
Please note that in accordance with NZ Standard AS/NZS 60335.1:2002 7.12:
“This appliance is not intended for use by young children or infirm persons unless they have been
adequately supervised by a responsible person to ensure that they can use the appliance safely. Young
children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.”
In certain circumstances your screen may be blank and alternating between white and black. Touch
the screen and a message will appear about either a power interruption, a reminder to change your
seasonal Preset or to remind you to change your filter.
The message for a power interruption will advise you to reset your clock and you will need to do
this before you can access the Current Status screen and operate your DVS®. Proceed to reset the
clock by following the steps in ‘Resetting or Changing your Clock’ on page 6.
The Current Status Screen shows icons and other information
summarising the current status and main settings of your G3®
system, in the example shown at right:
Roof-space temperature is 24º Celsius (the reading is shown in
the roof-space of the house diagram on the screen);
House temperature is 23º Celsius (the reading is shown in the
room space of the house diagram);
Current Status Screen
The day/time is Monday 14:27. The day and time showing is the “system” clock time essential
for controlling the operation of timers in the system. It is a 24-hour clock.
The Fan symbol at top left showing ON indicates that the fan is operating normally.
o
If the word BOOST and a time (half-hour, one hour, one and a half hours, or two hours) is
showing below the fan symbol, this indicates that the fan is operating at maximum speed
for the time shown;
o
If the word TIMER is showing below the fan symbol, this indicates that the timer is on and
the DVS® will only start working according to the ON and OFF times set.
The two small houses are Heat Recovery icons and they indicate whether the Retain Home Heat
and/or Solar Heat Boost functions are operating. The left hand icon shows Retain Home Heat
and the right hand icon shows Solar Heat Boost.
o
In the example Retain Home Heat is on. When it is off, the word OFF is superimposed on
the icon. This function monitors the difference in temperature between your home and the
roof-space and, when selected, it will automatically reduce the airflow if the roof-space is
colder than inside your home.
o
In the example Solar Heat Boost is on. Again, when it is off, the word OFF is superimposed
on the icon. This function will increase the airflow if the roof-space is warmer than the
home.
Preset
SUMMER is currently the preset selected. The three presets (‘winter’, ‘summer’ and
‘other’) will initially have been set by your DVS® installer. They can be altered by using the
PRESET function (see ‘Changing Seasons’ in the next section).
The
Fan Profile: Summer 1 shows that the DVS® is operating according to the settings
determined for Summer 1 profile. There are five summer profiles, 19 in total. When your DVS®
is calibrated at the time of installation, we select the most suitable for your house and area.
The MENU button is used to access one of the seven operating menus. Pressing it will take you
to the MAIN MENU 1 screen, from which by pressing the MORE button you can access MAIN
MENU 2 and MAIN MENU 3. The seven operating menus are accessed from the main menu
screens.

Changing Your G3® Settings
This section provides information on some desired changes and options available to fine tune your
system. Once you are more familiar with the contents of this section, you may find that the ‘G3®
Quick Guide’ at Appendix 1 provides an easier guide for quickly navigating around the system and
its various menus.
Changing the Child Lock FUNCTION
When the Child Lock is enabled, access to the G3®’s functions and menus is restricted, eliminating
the possibility of accidental changes being made to your system settings. When your system is
“locked” a small picture of a child holding a stop sign will appear in the top right corner of the
Current Status screen.
If the Child Lock is on, you will need to temporarily unlock the screen, before you can change any
settings, including the Child Lock.
To do so press the CHILD LOCK icon (top right hand corner) followed quickly by the bottom left
hand corner of the screen, and repeat until the Child Lock icon disappears. If this does not work at
first, keep trying but go faster.
With the Child Lock temporarily off, you can turn the Child Lock off permanently if you wish. You
do this by pressing the CHILD LOCK button until OFF appears (the CHILD LOCK button “toggles”
between on and off.). You reach this button by pressing MENU in the Current Status screen then
MORE on the MAIN MENU 1 screen to take you to MAIN MENU 2, then SYSTEM MENU.
When Child Lock is turned OFF, you or anyone else will be able to access all the menus and change
any setting by pressing the screen and menu buttons.
NOTE: If you do not turn the Child Lock off permanently, it will automatically be activated
when you next return to the Current Status screen after making any changes, or after
approximately 60 seconds of inactivity.
To turn the Child Lock ON, go to press MAIN MENU 2, SYSTEM MENU and press the CHILD LOCK
button until ON appears.
Turning your DVS® On and Off
Go to the POWER menu by pressing MENU on the Current Status Screen. This will take you to MAIN
MENU 1. Press POWER. This allows you to turn your whole DVS® system ON or OFF via the MODE
button, or to operate on pre-set TIMER settings via SET TIMER button.
MODE Selection
Press MODE to change the POWER setting to either:
ON (RECOMMENDED for normal use) The DVS® system will run continuously, except when it
may be automatically turned off according to the Preset settings in use.
OFF (NOT RECOMMENDED for normal use.) The DVS® system will remain turned off until ON
or TIMER is selected.
SET TIMER (NOT RECOMMENDED for normal use.) The DVS® system turns on and off according
to times set.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE: Although the Air Handling Unit and other equipment attached to the
DVS® may be switched off via the touch screen control panel or may have turned itself off
because of your timer selection, it is still connected to the house power supply. You MUST
disconnect electrical power to your DVS® by unplugging the Air Handling Unit’s 3-pin plug before
changing the DVS® air filter or undertaking any other servicing of your DVS® system.
3
Increasing Heat Recovery
Although condensation control will normally be the primary purpose of your DVS®, there are two
functions that enable you to balance the control of condensation with the retention of heat within
your home or capture of heat within your roof space..
These functions are Retain Home Heat and Solar Heat Boost.
With Retain Home Heat ON, the flow of air into your home is regulated so that when the roof space
temperature is significantly colder than your home, airflow will be reduced.
With Solar Heat Boost ON, the airflow will increase to take advantage of the warmer air in the roof
space when it is warmer than the air in your home.
To access these functions, press MORE on MAIN MENU 1 to take you to MAIN MENU 2, which includes
a HEAT REC button. Press this and you will have the option to set Retain Home Heat and Solar Heat
Boost ON or OFF.
When either Retain Home Heat or Solar Heat Boost is turned OFF, the word OFF will be superimposed over the house icons on the Current Status screen.
When Solar Heat Boost is ON and the roof-space temperature is greater than the house
temperature, up to a maximum of four downward moving arrows will appear at ceiling level in the
house diagram in your Current Status Screen; when the roof-space temperature is less than the inhome temperature,
NOTE: High-end and low-end temperature cut-outs for all Fan Profiles still apply if the Heat
function
is ON. When selecting Summer 3, 4, 5 or 6 the fan will turn on whenever the
noRecovery
arrows will
appear.
roof space temperature is less than the house temperature. This will aid the house in cooling
down on those hot summer nights.
Changing Airflow
The AIRFLOW menu enables you to adjust and fine-tune the airflow level higher or lower than the
pre-set calibrated level (represented by the ‘0’ setting). The adjusted AIR FLOW will apply to all
FAN PROFILE settings.
Using the Up and DOWN Fan Controls
In MAIN MENU 1 press AIRFLOW to open the AIRFLOW MENU. To change airflow, press the UP or
DOWN arrows on the right hand side of the screen.
The AIR FLOW setting of ‘0’ is the calibrated and recommended level of airflow to achieve wintertime condensation control for your home.
NOTE: Improving Control of Condensation.
If you are not achieving adequate control of condensation at the current AIR FLOW level,
experiment by increasing the AIR FLOW by one level at a time to increase the airflow
slightly. Try each new AIR FLOW level for 3-4 days to judge the result.
If you wish to reduce the amount of air entering your home during winter, AND your existing
AIR FLOW setting is adequately controlling condensation, experiment initially by ensuring
that Retain Home Heat is ON. You can also try reducing the AIR FLOW level by one level at a
time to slightly reduce the airflow. At some point the AIR FLOW will NOT be sufficient to
control condensation. This point will vary depending on the weather, outside temperatures
and other factors causing condensation. Try each new AIR FLOW level for 3-4 days to judge
the result.
Please do not hesitate to call our service staff on 0800 387 387 if you can not achieve
satisfactory results.
4
Using Fan Boost
FAN BOOST changes the airflow to maximum fan speed for a selected period of time. Once the
timer has expired the airflow will revert to the speed determined by the AIRFLOW menu. Pressing
FAN BOOST cycles through 1/2HR, 1HR, 11/2HR or 2HR and OFF).
This option is useful for clearing the house quickly of extra moisture or smells.\
NOTE: The fan will be noisier at this speed.
Changing Seasons
Preset Reminder
The PRESET reminder screen will appear when the preset reminder timer has counted down to 0
months. This is a reminder that it could be time to change your pre-set from SUMMER to WINTER
or WINTER to SUMMER. (Whether or not you make the change will be determined by the actual
weather being experienced at the time.)
The screen will alternate between white and black and show a message about changing your preset
when the reminder timer has counted down to zero. When you press the screen it will take you to
the PRESET MENU and the counter will automatically reset to 6 months - this can be adjusted by
pressing the UP/DOWN arrow, to reflect the period you actually want the next reminder to appear.
You can also, should you desire, turn the reminder OFF.
Changing between Presets
To change between SUMMER and WINTER touch the word “Preset” on the Current Status Screen.
This will automatically change between Summer and Winter. Normally this will provide an
acceptable level of seasonality. However, if you wish to utilise the Spring/Autumn preset (‘Other’)
from the Current Status screen, press MENU to go to MAIN MENU 1, then PRESET, then SELECT, then
press the OTHER button.
It is possible for you to change the presets to values different from the ones that DVS® has set on
installation. This is not necessary, but may be required if your circumstances change such as a
significant increase in the number of people living in the house (and creating moisture).
Please do not hesitate to call our service staff on 0800 387 387 if you need help.
Creating New Presets
The PRESET function allows you to save any change that you have made to Air Flow or Heat
Recovery settings as new Presets. This enables you to use the settings that you have used this year
for the same season next year. For example, you could save the changed settings that you have
used this summer as the new presets for use next summer. Normally you will only create and save
new presets for the season you are in.
To save the current settings as the new Preset for a particular season, from within the PRESET
MENU press SAVE and then either ‘Winter’, ‘Summer' or ‘Other’ to store your current settings. The
setting will be saved under the option selected.
Please note that if you have made a change to airflow or heat recovery settings outside of the
Preset settings, the word ‘Altered’ will appear on the Current Status screen below the season it
applies to. To see what has changed, go to PRESET and select VIEW. This will show the Preset and
Current settings side by side. If you save the changed settings as your Preset, the word ‘Altered’
will disappear.
In VIEW you will see a setting for Fan Profile, but this is not one that the home owner will change –
DVS service staff may use this setting in conjunction with major changes to your configuration if
you add new equipment. If you have fitted an air warmer or auto summer vent, settings for these
will appear as well. Information about changing these settings will be provided with the
equipment.
5
Resetting or Changing the Clock
As mentioned previously, a power interruption will cause the CLOCK to lose its settings. All other
G3® settings including any pre-set TIMER settings will be saved during a power interruption.
However, any TIMER settings will be inactive until the CLOCK has been reset.
The Clock will also need to be changed at the start and end of daylight savings.
Setting the Clock
It is important to check and set the CLOCK correctly as all TIMER settings rely on the correct day and time
being programmed.
Press the day/time figures on the Current Status screen or press the MENU and MORE buttons to
bring up the MAIN MENU 2 screen. Select SYSTEM menu and then press SET CLOCK.
Select today’s day and time by pressing the DAY, HOUR and MIN buttons (to make them change
faster hold the button down). If you go past your desired day and/or time, just keep pressing the
DAY, HOUR and MIN buttons until the desired day and/or time re-appears. Press EXIT to finish.
NOTE: This is a 24 hour clock so please ensure that the correct time is set, e.g. 4.30pm should
be set as 16:30.
Changing the Filter Service Reminder
The FILTER reminder screen will appear when the filter service timer has counted down to 0
months. This is a reminder that your filter should be changed or serviced. We recommend
changing your filter approximately every 12 months. The filter reminder timer will have been set
by our installer at the time of installation.
NOTE: Once you enter the FILTER menu, it will automatically re-set the due period to 12. Any
other time frame can be set by using the UP/DOWN arrows. DVS® will either install a
replacement filter for you in conjunction with a 10 point service of your DVS® system, or
deliver a replacement filter for you to fit. We recommend that you order a DVS® filter and
system service every second or third year in order to correctly maintain your system.
When the filter service reminder screen appears, it is time for a filter service. Please call us on
0800 DVS DVS (387 387) to arrange a filter servicing or to order a filter. “Appendix 2” provides
information on how to change your filter.
Changing Screen Contrast
To Adjust the Screen Contrast for easier viewing if the LCD screen is too dark or light. Use the
MENU and MORE buttons to bring up the SYSTEM MENU then access and adjust the Screen Contrast

Filter Replacement Instructions
For Your Safety
Please take special care when climbing into your roof-space, and while in the roof-space walk
only on load-bearing roof beams or trusses. We suggest you ensure another person is in the house
or tell a neighbour you are climbing into your roof-space so that you can get assistance quickly if
you slip or have an accident.
Switch your DVS® OFF at the control panel - refer to Specific Operating Guidelines for your model
of DVS®.
Disconnect the DVS® Air Handling Unit from the house supply by unplugging the 3-pin plug before
servicing or changing the air filter. Use only a dry cloth when cleaning the unit. Do NOT remove,
open or attempt to service any DVS equipment while it is connected to the house power supply.
Before going into the roof-space to change your DVS® filter:
Ensure that you have 1 filter and 4 plastic ties (3 if a small filter), a clean dry cloth, and a
good torch or safety lamp,
Join the ties together to form one long tie, but DON’T connect into a circle yet,
Switch your DVS® system OFF at the control panel.
If you have purchased an Activated Charcoal Odour and Smoke Filter (to remove smoke or
other smells), please refer to the instructions supplied with that filter.
Read these instructions and refer to the diagram below.
Carefully enter the roof-space. Take care not to stand
on or trip over the DVS® ducting or electrical cables
connecting the DVS® Air Handling Unit, other
equipment and in-roof control box.
Air Handling Unit
With a pair of strong scissors (recommended) or sharp
utility knife, carefully cut the plastic tie holding the
used filter to the inlet flange of the DVS Air Handling
Unit. Pull away the used filter. If a plastic spacer has
been installed in your existing filter, remove and
carefully insert into the new filter.
Use the dry cloth to wipe any fine dust from the Air
Handling Unit impellor and inside of the inlet flange.
Pull the new filter over the inlet flange, connect and
tighten the new long plastic tie around the filter.
Remember to switch your DVS® back on at the control
panel in your home.
You may also need to clean any dust from the ceiling
outlet(s) and surrounding ceiling in the house with a
clean brush or dry cloth. Do NOT use a wet cloth.
Please note that in the vast majority of cases, dust
around the ceiling diffuser is the result of dust already
inside the home being attracted by tiny electrostatic
charges that build up on the surface of the ceiling or
diffuser as the incoming air brushes past these
surfaces.

Appendix 3
Answers to Commonly Asked G3® Questions
Why can I hear an occasional ‘beep’ from the LCD screen?
The DVS-G3® will beep when touched and if any of its reminder alerts have been activated. There
are three reminder alerts programmed into the DVS-G3® - the filter change reminder alert, the
power failure alert and the preset reminder alert. If the filter change alert has activated, phone us
on 0800 DVS DVS (0800 387 387) to organise a replacement. If the power failure alert has activated,
all you need to do is reset the clock. With the preset reminder alert you need to consider if it is
time to change from Summer to Winter or vice versa, based on current weather patterns. All other
settings will revert to those in use prior to the power failure.
Why does it ‘beep’ when I press the touch screen, but nothing changes?
The screen will beep under very light contact but the touch mechanism will only activate under
moderate pressure. Try pressing slightly harder and also check that Child Lock is OFF.
When I use my touch screen, it makes a slight buzzing noise. Is this normal?
All LCD touch screens emit a faint ‘buzz’ when they are activated. This is normal and will stop
when the screen is no longer in use, and returns to Screen Saver mode.
How do I clean the LCD touch screen?
See ‘Care of Your DVS-G3® LCD Touch Screen’ on page 7 of this Operating Guide.

until ON or TIMER is selected.
TIMERRECOMMENDED for SPECIFIC CIRCUMSTANCES ONLY.
AIR FLOW MENU
The AIR FLOW menu enables you to adjust and fine-tune the airflow level higher or lower than the
pre-set calibrated level (represented by the ‘0’ setting). The adjusted AIRFLOW will apply to all FAN
PROFILE settings.
The AIR FLOW setting of ‘0’ is the calibrated and recommended level of airflow to achieve wintertime condensation control for your home.
Press the UP arrow to increase fan speed and air flow. Press the DOWN arrow to decrease fan speed
and air flow.
FAN BOOST
Changes the airflow to Maximum for the period selected. Once the timer has
expired the air flow will revert to the speed determined by the AIR FLOW
menu. This option is useful for clearing the house quickly of extra moisture
or smells.
Note: The fan will be noisier at this speed.
PRESET MENU
The PRESET function allows you to store, view and recall three customised
settings for operating your G3® system. Each setting will be unique to your
home and lifestyle. The PRE-SET function allows these settings to be saved
and re-activated the following year.
Please note that having selected a PRESET and then made a change outside
of the PRESET settings the word ‘altered’ will appear on the Main Menu screen alerting you to this
fact. To see what has changed, go to PRESET VIEW and this will show the Preset and Current
settings side by side.
SAVE
The PRESET SAVE function allows you to save any change that you have made to Air Flow or Heat
Recovery settings as new Presets. This enables you to return to those settings for the same season
the following year. Normally you will only create and save new presets for the season you are in.
Press SAVE and then either ‘Winter’, ‘Summer or ‘Other’ to store your current settings into that
particular season. The setting will then be saved under the option selected.

MAIN MENU 2
FAN PROFILE
The FAN PROFILE menu enables you to select one of 30 pre-set programmes
which control the way the DVS® Air Handling Unit responds to changes in
roof-space temperature. However, depending on whether you have an AirWarmer or Auto Summer Ventilation unit installed, you will normally only
use two profiles during the course of a year, i.e. Winter and Summer.
The profiles are grouped in 4 types, in the following order
Winter
Summer
Uniform
Auto Summer Vent
5 profiles
5 profiles
5 profiles
4 profiles
To change and select a FAN PROFILE, simply press the UP or DOWN arrow
and scroll through the profiles until you reach the setting you require.
If you are unsure which profile is the most appropriate for your
circumstances and for the season, or if you would like any other advice,
please phone us on 0800 DVS DVS (387 387).
HEAT REC (Heat Recovery)
The HEAT REC (Heat Recovery) function allows your DVS G3® to further
regulate and fine-tune the airflow into your home to give you the best
combination of condensation control and heat recovery/retention. This is
done via the Retain Home Heat and Solar Heat Boost functions which can
independently be turned ON or OFF.
The Retain Home Heat function measures the difference in temperature
between your home and the roof-space and, when selected, it will
automatically reduce the airflow if the roof-space is colder than inside your
home.
The Solar Heat Boost will increase the airflow if the roof-space is warmer than the home.
11
When either Retain Home Heat or Solar Heat Boost is turned OFF, the word OFF will be superimposed over the house profiles on the Current Status screen.
When the roof-space temperature is greater than the in-home temperature, up to a maximum of four
downward moving arrows will appear at ceiling level in the house diagram in your Current Status
screen.
When the roof-space temperature is less than the in-home temperature, no arrows will appear, but
the airflow will be automatically reduced.
NOTE: High-end and low-end temperature cut-outs for all Fan Profiles still apply if the Heat
Recovery function is ON.
SYSTEM MENU

The FILTER reminder screen will appear when the filter timer has counted
down to 0 months remaining until the filter is due to be changed or serviced.
We recommend changing your filter approximately every 12 months.
NOTE: once you enter the FILTER menu, it will automatically re-set the due
period to 12. Any other time frame can be set by using the UP/DOWN arrows.
DVS® will either install a replacement filter for you in conjunction with a 10
point service of your DVS® system, or deliver a replacement filter for you. See “Appendix 2” on how
to change your filter.
