INSTALLATION PROCEDURES
1. HUMIDIFIER INSTALLATION
A. LOCATION & MOUNTING
(1) NH Series humidifiers are designed to mount on a suitable wall or vertical surface. Do
not sit on floor due to clearances required for plumbing, electrical, and control
entrances. The clearance dimensions shown in this manual are for reference only and
are the minimum required for maintenance of the humidifier. Local and National Codes
should be consulted prior to final location and installation of the humidifier. NORTEC
cannot accept responsibility for installation code violations. (See Figure 1.)
(2) If possible, DO NOT locate humidifier any further than absolutely necessary from
steam distributor location as net output will be reduced as a result of heat loss through
steam line. (Refer to Engineering Manual, H-100, Chapter 10-10.)
(3) Wall mounting bracket provided should be securely attached horizontally with open
edge upwards, using field-supplied fasteners. (See Figure 2.)
(4) If humidifiers are mounted on a roof, a thermostatically ventilated weatherproof cabinet
should be used. Consult factory.
B. WATER SUPPLY LINE
(1) All water supply and drain line connections should be installed in accordance with local
plumbing codes.
(2) For installation details see Figure 3.
Figure 1. Clearances and Operating Conditions
10-10
Page 2
2006-09-15
C. DRAIN LINE
CAUTION
DRAIN WATER FROM HUMIDIFIER CAN BE VERY HOT.
(1) The drain line should not end in a sink used frequently by personnel, or where plumbing
codes prohibit it. Route to a floor drain or equivalent for safety reasons.
(2) For installation details see Figure 3.
D. STEAM RUNS AND CONDENSATE RETURNS
(1) Tables 1 through 5 indicate what material and recommended length to use when
installing atmospheric steam lines. The lengths mentioned are equivalent feet and

G. OPTIONAL OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE RESET FUNCTION
NOTE
Order outdoor temperature sensor separately, Part #252-0263.
(1) Each humidistat and controller is equipped with an integrated reset function that will
lower the setpoint during cold weather operation. This will prevent condensation on
windows and building structures. Figure 8 illustrates how the setpoint reset feature
operates.
(2) This feature is enabled by removing the jumper from terminals 8 and 1 on the
humidistat and wiring the outdoor temperature sensor to these terminals.
(3) When the outdoor temperature setback feature is in effect, the humidistat will normally
display the calculated setpoint limit based on the outdoor air temperature. A snowflake
will also be displayed to indicate cold weather operation. When any key on the
controller is pressed, the LCD screen will display the customer specified setpoint for a
short duration.

2. STEAM DISTRIBUTORS INSTALLATION FOR THE ASD, BSD AND CSD
A. STEAM DISTRIBUTORS
(1) NORTEC’s steam distributors are a proven design for the introduction of atmospheric
steam into ducts.
(2) Features and benefits of steam distributors include:
(a) Expanded diameter of tube to reduce steam velocity and the potential for
condensate carryover into the duct.
(b) Positive removal of condensate.
(c) Lower heat transfer coefficient reduces ‘radiator effect and condensate’ and results
in higher efficiency of humidifier output while reducing condensate formation.
(d) Designed specifically for atmospheric steam distribution.
(e) Modularity so that the exact quantity of distributors can be configured to meet
specific application requirements, to reduce system complexity and installation
costs.
B. DISTRIBUTOR CHARACTERISTICS
(1) NORTEC steam distributors are constructed of stainless steel and include a low point
condensate return to prevent the condensate from collecting in the steam distributor.
This enables condensate to settle to the bottom of the steam distributor where it is
removed by the condensate return. These features allow the NORTEC steam
distributors to be installed level in the duct, thereby utilizing the full available width of
the duct. (See Figure 13.)
(2) Ensure the total capacity of the humidifier is not higher than the allowable maximum
steam capacity of the following distributors:
(a) ASD: 25 lbs/hr (9 kg/hr)
(b) BSD: 35 lbs/hr (13 kg/hr)
(c) CSD: 115 lbs/hr (45 kg/hr)
C. DISTRIBUTOR LOCATIONS AND MOUNTING
(1) NORTEC distributors can be mounted in air handlers, supply air ducts or return air
ducts. Return air ducts should only be considered if 100% of the return air enters the
building again and is not exhausted by the air handling device. Distributors should be
mounted center or low within the duct or plenum. (See Figures 14 and 15.) Laminar
airflow is best. Downstream obstructions must be considered. Non-absorbed steam
may affect devices such as smoke detectors downstream. Total steam absorption must
be accomplished before filters and silencers.
(2) Distributors come complete with a mounting plate. (See Figure 16.) Most ducts and
plenums are rigid enough to support the distributor.
(3) Longer distributors (more than 36 in.) and distributors mounted on lighter gauge sheet
metal which cannot support the distributor level in the duct will need to be supported on
the end. (See Figure 13.)
10-10
Page 18
2006-09-15
D. MULTIPLE DISTRIBUTOR APPLICATIONS
(1) The use of multiple steam distributors can reduce the absorption distance in most
situations. Distributors can be manifolded together to create a grid to achieve shorter
absorption distances. (See Figure 15.)
CAUTION
THESE INSTALLATION GUIDELINES APPLY FOR DUCT VELOCITIES
UNDER 2000 FT/MIN (610 M/MIN), PLEASE CONSULT FACTORY FOR
HIGHER VELOCITIES.
CAUTION
PLEASE MAKE SURE NO OBSTACLES (ELBOW, FILTER, OR
DIFFUSER) ARE LOCATED AFTER THE DISTRIBUTOR IN THE
DIRECTION OF THE AIRFLOW CLOSER THAN THE ABORPTION
DISTANCE CALCULATED FOR YOUR APPLICATION.
CAUTION
UNLESS YOU KNOW THE EXACT ABSORPTION DISTANCE REQUIRED FOR
THE STEAM ABSORPTION INTO THE AIR STREAM, THE DISTRIBUTOR
SHOULD BE LOCATED AT LEAST 8-10 FT (2-3 M) AWAY FROM ANY
OBSTACLE IT MAY CONDENSE ON (ELBOW, DIFFUSER, FILTER, ETC.)

(2) Duct vertical clearance requirements for standard steam distributors are as follows:
(a) ASD
- 8 in. vertical duct height for 1st ASD
- 5.5 in. additional duct height for each additional ASD
= ROUNDDOWN (‘DuctHeight’ - 8 in.)/5.5) + 1
(b) BSD
- 10 in. vertical duct height for 1st BSD
- 6.375 in. additional duct height for each additional BSD
= ROUNDDOWN (‘DuctHeight’ - 10 in.)/6.375) + 1
(c) CDS
- 14 in. vertical duct height for 1st CSD
- 9 in. additional duct height for each additional CSD
= ROUNDDOWN (‘DuctHeight’ - 14 in.)/9) + 1
NOTE
These requirements apply to arrangements of multiple distributors ONLY. Diagonal
arrangements utilize an alternative method.
E.
LOCATION OF STEAM DISTRIBUTORS WITHIN AN AIR HANDLER
(1) Humidify after the heating coil (H/C) so that absorption will occur before the cooling
coil (C/C). If steam condenses on the cooling coil, any excess water will be drained
away. There is little chance of condensation on the blower, blower motor, or fan
isolation components, especially if you use a modulating high limit humidistat. All steam
distributors should be a minimum of 8 in. from the H/C and evenly spaced. If
downstream wetting is a problem, add more steam distributors. (See Figure 17).
F.
DISTRIBUTOR ABSORPTION
DISTANCE
(1) The water vapor discharged from
the steam distributor must be
adequately mixed with air to
prevent condensation on
downstream components. Consult
the design engineer or
Engineering Manual H-100.
G. TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
(1) Representations of typical
applications are found in Figure 18
and Figure 19.
H. DISTRIBUTOR DIMENSIONS

3. SAM-e SHORT ABSORPTION MANIFOLD
NOTES
1. Absorption distance is the minimum distance an obstruction can be placed
downstream of the SAM-e to prevent steam condensing on the obstruction.
2. If any of the ducts of the AHU conditions are changed, the absorption distance
may change due to increase or decrease in duct temperatures, amount of fresh
air, various outside conditions, setpoint requirements, etc. If this occurs,
re-calculate the absorption distance, and determine if the SAM-e needs to be
modified or relocated.

4. BLOWER PACKS (BOBP, RMBP)
WARNING
STEAM DISTRIBUTOR ON THE BUILT-ON AND REMOTE BLOWER
PACKS HAVE A HOT SURFACE THAT COULD RESULT IN BURNS IF
TOUCHED. NORTEC RECOMMENDS MOUNTING AT LEAST EIGHT
FEET ABOVE THE FLOOR.
A. BLOWER PACKS
(1) Optional blower packs are used to distribute steam to localized areas such as computer
rooms or in areas that do not have a built-in air distribution system.
(2) Blower packs are available integrally mounted on humidifier BOBP, (See Figure 28.) or
detached, field-piped and wired to humidifier RMBP. (See Figure 29.)
(3) Blower packs consist of a steel cabinet containing: three axial blowers with finger
guards powered by 120 VAC or line voltage humidifiers, built-in multi-tap transformer
(when necessary), fuse, high temperature plastic distributor with stainless steel lid,
horizontal and vertical adjustment knobs for directional control, built-in thermostat to
activate blowers, speed control rocker switch and safety loop relay.
(4) Refer to Table 7 for ceiling and frontal clearances required for blower packs.
Dimensions apply to both built-on and remote-mounted versions of blower packs.
(5) Mount remote blower pack(s) using factory supplied wall mounting bracket with
clearances as recommended in Table 7.

Four remote mounted blower packs are recommended on the 200 model.
Clearances based on 72°F at 35% RH.
Remote mounted blower pack must be used for 150 and 200 models.
When there are clearance restrictions, adding blower packs can resolve the problem. For example, if you
have a series 100 and less than the required minimum clearance, changing from one blower pack to two
50 series blower packs reduces the minimum clearance to 36/84 in. from 48/156 in.
B. PRIMARY VOLTAGE CONNECTION
(1) As a safety feature, blower packs come equipped with a manual reset safety
thermostat and relay built into the blower pack cabinet. The manual reset thermostat
locks out the humidifier if the blower pack is not powered. The control thermostat,
mounted on the steam distributor, starts the fans when steam is generated.
(2) All blower packs have high efficiency blowers to minimize the frontal and overhead
clearance required to absorb the steam.
(3) NH Series remote mounted blower packs require field wiring between two primary
voltage terminal blocks and two low voltage control terminal strips; one of each located
in humidifier and remote blower pack cabinet. To properly access the primary block on
the humidifier, it may be necessary to remove the side. To connect the primary and
control wiring, the wiring is fed through the knockouts provided in the bottom of the
blower pack and the top of the humidifier. The terminal block and strip are accessed by
removing the blower pack cover.
NOTE
Class 1 circuit wiring is required between humidifier and blower pack.
(4) Field wiring of remote blower packs must conform to national and local electrical codes.
Refer to wiring diagram supplied at the back of this manual.
(5) For NH Series use approved wire for power connection from two-pole terminal block of
remote blower pack to additional two-pole terminal block inside electrical section of
humidifier.
(6) For NH Series use approved wire to connect from ground clamp of remote mounted
blower pack to ground clamp provided in the electrical section of humidifier.

A. NHTC COMPONENTS
(1) Refer to Figures 1 and 2 when reading Table 1.
B. HUMIDIFIER START-UP
(1) Figure 3 describes the method for powering up a humidifier and the cautions to take.
C. BASIC STEAM PRODUCTION METHOD
(1) Figure 6 describes the method the NH Series humidifier uses to produce pure clean
steam. The NORTEC NH electrode steam humidifier uses NORTEC’s patented AutoAdaptive cycle to calculate drains to maintain optimal performance. Figure 4 Drain Rate
vs Water Conductivity depicts an indication of drain amounts.
D. CYLINDER LIFE
(1) The output of all NH Series humidifiers is pure, clean steam; minerals originally in the
incoming water are left behind. These minerals will eventually coat the cylinder
electrodes. Therefore, the mineral content of the incoming water, the unit running time
and output capacity setting ultimately determine cylinder life. NORTEC’s cylinder life is
up to 2,000 hours of operation. Water chemistry and capacity can affect cylinder life.
(See Figure 5.) See Table 4 to identify the message which indicates when the cylinder
is at the end of its life.

SOFTWARE FLOW CHART WITH DEFINITIONS
(1) The flow chart in Figure 7 depicts the software logic and definitions.
G. SELF-HELP
(1) The microcomputer applies corrective actions whenever its self-diagnostics identifies a
problem that it is able to correct by itself. If the corrective action is not successful then
it displays a system message. If the corrective action requires a service person, then
the microcomputer’s only resort is to stop the unit and display a system message. The
unit never stops unless it has to.
(2) After three days of no call from either the on/off controls or the modulating controls,
when active, the three-day drain active feature is automatically activated long enough
to drain all water from the steam cylinder. This NORTEC feature will prolong the life of
the cylinder. (User selectable, default is ON.)

steam into the duct while collecting condensate and removing it by the condensate
return.
B. SAM-e OPERATION
(1) Figure 9 describes the method by which the Short Absorption Manifold releases pure
clean steam into the duct while collecting condensate, removing it by condensate
return and ensuring short absorption distance.
C. BLOWER PACK OPERATION
WARNING
DURING AND FOLLOWING OPERATION OF THE HUMIDIFIER, THE
STEAM AND COMPONENTS IN CONTACT WITH THE STEAM ON THE
BLOWER PACK CAN BECOME HOT AND CAN BURN IF TOUCHED.

3. CONTROLS AND REMOTE COMMUNICATION (OPTIONAL)
A. DIGITAL CONTROL OPERATION
(1) Figure 11 shows the components of the NORTEC Controller and how to adjust the
setpoint.
(2) In the case of a modulating NORTEC Controller, Figure 12 shows the relation between
the difference from setpoint to %rh in the room and the 0-10 V DC demand signal sent
out. From this basis the NORTEC Controller uses its PI algorithm to adjust its demand
signal in accordance with the history of the environment. This type of control allows for
tighter and more precise control.
B. DIGITAL TRANSDUCER OPERATION
(1) The NORTEC digital transducers, shown in Figure 13, are designed to sense humidity
in duct or in room respectively, and report it back to a controller or the NHTC directly.
Required humidifier output is determined by controller or humidifier.
C. REMOTE CONNECTIONS (OPTIONAL)
CAUTION
NORTEC DOES NOT RECOMMEND USING THE DRY RELAY
CONTACTS WITH ANYTHING MORE THAN 24 VAC, 1 AMP.
(1) The NHTC reports the signal light status, in Table 3, by closing the supplied dry contact
relays which can be wired back to a BMS or monitoring station. This method of
monitoring is not as informative as the actual display, but alerts you to the general
status of the unit.
Figure 11. NORTEC Digital Controller

Page 20
2006-09-15
D. NORTEC LINKS OPERATION
(1) NORTEC Links is an option that can be integrated with the NHTC. This allows a BMS
to monitor and in the right configuration, control the humidifier. For additional
information about NORTEC Links and its operation and configuration, go to
www.humidity.com and look up the NORTEC Links manual.
(2) Table 5 contains a list of NORTEC Links variable definitions. For a complete list,
contact the factory.
E.
NORTEC ONLINE OPERATION
(1) NORTEC OnLine is an option that can be integrated with the NHTC. This allows a user
to log onto the internet, go to www.norteconline.com and log in to allow them to monitor
their unit from any computer with an internet connection. (See Figure 14)
(2) After initially logging into the NORTEC OnLine server the user will be presented with a
list of humidifiers currently registered with the Server program. Each humidifier will be
listed with a unit type identifier, a serial number and an address descriptor.
(3) By clicking on the humidifier name, the user will then be brought to a status screen with
an image of the selected humidifier.
(4) Figure 14 shows a typical NORTEC OnLine Monitoring Screen. Use this manual in
combination with NORTEC OnLine to be able to monitor and understand the settings
possible through the NORTEC OnLine Interface.

Typical tools required for any maintenance procedure:
- Slotted Screwdriver
- Small Slotted Screwdriver
- Phillips Screwdriver
- Needle-Nose Pliers
- Wrench
A. MAINTENANCE
WARNING
DISCONNECT MAIN POWER BEFORE ANY SERVICING.
WARNING
THE PLUMBING AND ELECTRICAL COMPARTMENTS CONTAIN HIGH
VOLTAGE COMPONENTS AND WIRING. ACCESS SHOULD BE
LIMITED TO AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL ONLY.
(1) The NHTC and its components are a very low maintenance system. The only
maintenance normally required is to change the cylinder, clean out the drain valve
assembly, clean out the inlet valve screen and know the procedure for extended shutdown and start-up.
B. WHEN TO REPLACE THE STEAM CYLINDER
(1) The steam cylinder is disposable and must be replaced at end of cylinder life. Cylinder
life is dependent on water supply conditions and humidifier usage. Failure to replace
the cylinder at the end of cylinder life will cause the unit to lock out. NORTEC is not
responsible for any damages resulting from, or attributed to, the failure to replace a
spent cylinder (see Manufacturer’s Warranty). There are many indications, each of
which signifies the end of cylinder life. See 10-20 Operation, Table 4, for details on how
the unit functions and determines end of cylinder life.
C. EXTENDED SHUT-DOWN
(1) As long as the NHTC is powered, it will automatically drain the cylinder when there has
not been a call for humidity for an extended period of time. This feature will reduce or
prevent the possibility of corrosion of the electrodes and the accumulation of algae and
bacteria growing in the cylinder. The cylinder will remain empty until there is a call for
humidity at which time the fill valve will open and refill the cylinder. The unit will go
through its normal process for optimum operation.
(2) Should it be required to disconnect power to the humidifier for a period of extended
shut-down, always drain the cylinder first. Leave the switch in the OFF position and
‘open’ the main external fused disconnect to stop power to the humidifier. Close the
shut-off valve in the water supply line feeding the humidifier.

TROUBLESHOOTING
1. TROUBLESHOOTING NH ELECTRODE STEAM HUMIDIFIERS
A. PREPARATION
(1) Ensure the installation detail conform to installation requirements.
(2) Understanding the Principle of Operation and the software menus is an asset when
troubleshooting. This information is found in chapter 10-20 Operation and can be
elaborated on by your local representative.
(3) When contacting your local representative or NORTEC for troubleshooting assistance,
please ensure the serial number has been obtained for reference purposes.
(4) Whenever the troubleshooting steps indicate a problem with the main pc-board, first
check all connections at the main PCB (including the ribbon cable connections at the
center of the main PCB) before ordering replacements.
B. STARTING POINT
(1) Table 1 checkpoints will allow for faster troubleshooting. Ensuring that all these steps
are taken is good practice when beginning to troubleshoot the NH series humidifier.
Check your symptom and verify all points before ordering any replacement parts or
contacting your local representative. Use the wiring diagram when necessary for
clarification.
NOTE
Wiring diagrams on unit supersedes diagrams in this manual.
WARNING
BE AWARE, WHEN TROUBLESHOOTING, THAT THE HUMIDIFIER IS
POWERED BY HIGH VOLTAGE AND FAMILIARITY WITH BOTH GOOD
PRACTICES AND WIRING OF THE HUMIDIFIER IS RECOMMENDED.
ANY TROUBLESHOOTING THAT REQUIRES OPENING THE CABINET
SHOULD BE DONE BY QUALIFIED PERSONNEL.
C. NHTC/NHPC
(1) The self-diagnostic system built into the NHTC is continually checking the status of the
electrical circuits to the fill valve, drain valve, primary voltage contactor, high water
sensor and steam cylinder. The modulating signals from external humidistat and
reduced manual capacity settings are taken into consideration. When problem
symptoms are found, the NHTC/NHPC will take self-corrective actions, if applicable. It
will, if necessary, respond by shutting itself down. Table 3 describes some of the
conditions the NH unit can detect and warn or protect itself against. Table 4 contains a
definition of the terms used in this section.

24 VAC output from the step-down
transformer. Check high and low voltage.
24 VAC is required to power nearly all the
components of the humidifier, including the
electronics.
Ensure that fuses in the humidifier and on
the electronic boards are good. Ensure
that 24 VAC is getting to the main board.
The fuses are in place to prevent damage
to the electronics. If there was a surge the
fuse may have blown to prevent damage
to the unit.
Door interlock open.
The door interlock has malfunctioned.
The unit will not fill or fills very
Water supply is on and water pressure is

unit rely on its pressure to control volume
and operation. NORTEC recommends 55
to 60 PSIG.
Unit is getting a demand signal or the unit
is producing the required steam capacity.
See ensuring demand Table 2.
The unit will not activate the fill valve
without a demand for humidity. It will also
only fill as necessary once there is a
demand. Once it reaches the requested
demand, it will stop filling.
No leak at drain valve or around cylinder.
Check for water coming out of the drain.
Check the fill valve inlet.
Check fill valve strainer.
Check optional inline filter.
The cylinder is held in by gravity and
sealed by an O-ring. If not properly seated,
it could leak and prevent the unit from
filling.
Drain stuck open
Pressure in the steam line could also
prevent filling causing the water in the fill
cup to overflow to drain.
Strainer is clogged.
Fill valve may also be restricted after
capturing debris in its filter.
Unit will not humidify or is not
reaching requested capacity.
Unit has faulted or has a
warning
Unit is getting a demand signal. Refer to
Table 2.
Unit will not send power to the cylinder
without a demand and safeties met.
Capacity is manually limited.
The unit will not surpass the capacity
dictated by the user in the software.
Cylinder is full.
The unit will not fill further than a full
cylinder. Operation requires it to try to
concentrate the conductivity, which may
take several hours, before it reaches full

Check
Why and How
Safety Loop (terminal 1
and 2) is closed
The safety loop is checked to ensure that it is safe to operate. Checking to see 24 VAC from
terminal 1 to ground, and terminal 2 to ground should indicate whether is closed.
If found to be open, isolate which component in the safety loop is open to solve the issue. If
suspect, confirm that it is connected and operating properly.
Channel 1 has a signal.
Whether for on/off or modulating, a voltage potential signal must be present between
terminal 3 and 4 for the humidifier temperature.
If on/off there should be 5 VDC.
If VDC modulating, at least 25% of total possible signal must be present.
If mA controlled, at least 25% of total possible signal must be present.
If Transducer signals, the unit setpoint must be higher then the sensed room RH signal.
Channel 2 has a signal
Only applicable if configured to accept dual channel input.
If VDC modulating, at least 25% of total possible signal must be present.
If mA controlled, at least 25% of total possible signal must be present.
If Transducer signals, the high limit setpoint must be higher than the sensed RH signal.
2. TROUBLESHOOTING DISTRIBUTORS
CAUTION
KEEP IN MIND WHEN TROUBLESHOOTING DISTRIBUTORS THAT
THEY ARE BEING USED WITH STEAM AND THEREFORE, ARE AND
CAN REMAIN VERY HOT DURING THE TROUBLESHOOTING
PROCESS.
A. TROUBLESHOOTING ATMOSPHERIC DISTRIBUTORS
(1) If the distributor is spitting out water, ensure that the distributor is installed level and
check the condensate return for proper slope, check head above the trap, and check
the trap that it is clear of obstructions.
(2) If the distributor is condensing inside the duct, make sure the installation clearances
are as indicated in Chapter 10-10 Installation, and make sure that the design conditions
have not changed. If over humidification of the duct results, check controls and safeties
(ensure safeties are properly installed and functioning).
3. SAM-e TROUBLESHOOTING
A. PROCEDURE
(1) If the SAM-e is spitting out water, ensure that the distributor is installed per instructions
in Chapter 10-10 Installation and check the condensate return for proper slope and trap
and that it is clear of obstructions. The condensate return must be the lowest point of
the SAM-e header.
10-40
Page 4
2006-09-15
(2) If the SAM-e is condensing inside the duct, make sure that the design conditions have
not changed.
(3) If grommets leak, make sure the tubes are firmly inserted, if cracks or damage are
found, replace grommet.
4. BLOWER PACKS TROUBLESHOOTING
A. PROCEDURE
(1) An optional blower pack (BP), ensure power supplied to blower pack either from
humidifier or other source, if present, gets its primary voltage from inside the humidifier.
This way, only one external power source has to be connected to the equipment.
Confirm this power source before troubleshooting the blower pack.
(2) Ensure blower pack is installed per Chapter 10-10 Installation.
(3) If fans are not functioning, confirm safety is not open. Fans are only ON when steam is
being discharged.
5. DIGITAL ON/OFF HUMIDISTAT SENSOR CALIBRATION
A. PROCEDURE
(1) The humidity sensor is factory calibrated, however, it can be field recalibrated.
(a) The calibration routine can be accessed by pressing and holding down the option
button for five seconds. A new screen will appear with the calibration adjustments.
(b) Press the up
or down
buttons until the text calH appears on the LCD screen.
(c) To adjust the calibration press the Option
button. The screen should load to
display the current calibration trim. The calibration trim can be adjusted by
pressing the up or down buttons to the desired level and then pressing the option
button to confirm the settings.
(d) Press the Power
button to return to the normal display.
NOTE
A properly calibrated hygrometer should be used in conjunction with any calibration
procedure.

Table 4. Term Definitions
Term
Definition
RATED AMPS
Refers to amps listed on the humidifier specification label.
SHORT CYCLING
When the ‘on time’ of the humidifier is less than ten minutes upon a call for humidity. To correct
short cycling, all humidifiers have a capacity adjustment which allows the output of the humidifier to
be reduced as low as 20% of rated output, thus extending the ‘on time’ required to maintain output.
FOAMING
This phenomenon can occur in water when the impurities, already in the water, reach an excess
concentration as result of boiling away pure water, and the continued boiling action agitating the
contained water. The humidifier electronics are designed to prevent this occurrence, although in
extreme cases water will foam with little concentration making it necessary to have the drain time of
the water, contained in the cylinder, increased. Foaming is normally caused by short cycling, a
restricted drain, or back pressure. The foam generated in these instances, is conductive and may
lead to a false full cylinder indication if the level of the foam approaches the top of the cylinder.
BACK PRESSURE
This can be caused by restriction of steam flow caused by long steam runs; improperly sloped
steam lines; elbows changing the direction of the steam flow from horizontal to vertical without a
drain leg, any plumbing detail allowing the accumulation of condensate; undersized steam line;
improper steam distributor; downward air flow onto the distributor creating excess static pressure at
the steam outlets; or high static pressure ducts (not probable). To overcome excess static pressure
in the duct, a fill cup extension kit should be used. In downflow applications, a downflow distributor
should be used but in some cases the fill cup extension will also be required.
RESET UNIT
(HUMIDIFIER)
To reset the humidifier, the ON/OFF switch at the front of the humidifier should be switched to the
OFF position for a minimum of five seconds and then switched back to the ON position.
MONITORED LEG
Refers to the primary wire to the cylinder which loops through the current sensing device on the
driver PCB. This wire is terminated at the red cylinder plug at the cylinder. Units with six primary
wires to the cylinder will monitor only one of the two wires, terminating with red plugs.
CONDENSATE
Refers to steam that has condensed to a liquid.

1.
PRELIMINARY:
– Pre-start-up checklist completed? yes G no G
If no, return to Pre-Start-up Checklist before going on with start-up procedure.
2.
START-UP PROCEDURE:
The prerequisites for getting power and water into the steam cylinder are as follows:
– check that main breaker is on and power is at the unit.
– check that main water shut-off valve is open.
– on/off/drain switch must be switched on.
– control circuit 1-2 must be made.
– modulation humidistat, if present, must be calling.
– cabinet mounted humidistat, if present, must be calling.
– door interlock switch must be made (interlock switch can be pulled out to operate unit).
The unit will undergo a self-test to ensure integrity of all the components:
– NHTC Start-Up Unit Cylinder
– Reading Cylinder Data
– Inlet Valve
– Drain Valve
– Heat Controller
– Pump
– Bleed Valve
– Steam Relay
– Service Relay
– Error Relay
– Operation Relay
It will then start filling the cylinder and begins normal operation. Most water does not
contain enough conductivity for full boil on initial start-up. Units will need to concentrate
the water over a time period (hours to days).

WHEN TO REPLACE THE CYLINDER:
NHTC/NHPC light indication and LCD display:
1.
Yellow and Green light with W19: Cylinder Spent indicates the cylinder must be
replaced in the next 72 hours.
2.
Red and Yellow light with E19: Cylinder Spent indicates the cylinder is at the end of
its life and must be replaced.
CYLINDER REPLACEMENT PROCEDURE:
1.
Turn off water supply to unit.
2.
Activate drain to completely empty water content (less than 10 minutes)
3.
When drained, stop drain and turn off unit.
4.
Also open the main electrical disconnect switch and open plumbing.
5.
Remove the cylinder plugs by pulling vertically. The plugs are press-fitted over the
electrode pins protruding from the top of the cylinder.
6.
Using a slotted screwdriver, loosen the steam line clamp(s) and pull steam line off
the cylinder vertically.
7.
Using a small slotted screwdriver, depress tab on the re-usable cable tie, if present,
around the middle of the cylinder. This will loosen the cable tie to come apart for reuse later on.
8.
The cylinder is now ready to be removed from the unit.
CAUTION: Cylinder and any remaining water might still be HOT.
9.
Always clean the drain valve before installing a new cylinder. (see further below)
10. Remove the used cylinder and replace by a new one. Do not re-use cylinder.
MANDATORY CLEANING OF THE DRAIN VALVE
1.
Note that ring terminal for drain valve green ground wire is sandwiched between
drain valve body and drain pan.
2.
Remove two screws securing drain valve body to drain pan. Disconnect the two
slip-on terminals from the two tabs on the (24 VAC) drain valve coil.
3.
Remove hose clip and hose connection from drain valve body.
4.
Drain valve assembly is now free to be taken to a sink for disassembly and cleaning.
Important: Tapered end of spring must be installed toward the solenoid.
5.
Clean out the end of the hose, and then reconnect it to the drain valve body with the
clamp.
6.
Fit mounting screws through drain valve body, one through ring terminal on green
ground wire.
WARNING: To prevent the possibility of electrical shock the green ground wire must be
reinstalled before power is restored. Push the two slip-on terminals back onto
the two tabs on the coil. The terminals, although not identical, are reversible.

HOW TO INSTALL THE REPLACEMENT CYLINDER
1.
Reverse procedure should be followed to install new cylinder. Main disconnect is to
be left open until cylinder is completely installed and reconnected.
2.
Ensure that the re-usable cable tie and mounting brackets, within the unit, secure the
cylinder properly.
3.
The cylinder plug wires are colour-coded in accordance with coloured dots beside
the electrode pins on top of the cylinder.
4.
This colour coding must be adhered to when replacing cylinder plugs on pins.
5.
With cylinders having six primary voltage cylinder plugs, it should be noted that there
are two of each colour.
6.
Care must be taken so that cylinder leads of the same color are always directly
opposite each other as indicated by the dot formation on the top of the cylinder.
7.
The white cylinder plug on all units is for the high water sensor electrode, which
always goes on the single pin surrounded by a plastic shoulder.
8.
Ensure that cylinder plugs fit snugly on the pins.
9.
If cylinder plugs become loose, it is best to obtain a new replacement plug. Consult
factory.
EXTENDED SHUTDOWN:
1.
Before disconnecting power to the humidifier for a period of extended shutdown,
ALWAYS DRAIN the cylinder first.
2.
‘Open’ the main external fused disconnect to stop power to the humidifier.
3.
Close the shut-off valve in the water supply line feeding the humidifier.
ACCESS SHOULD BE LIMITED TO AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL ONLY.
4.
NHTC 3 day drain: As long as the NHTC is powered, it will automatically drain the
cylinder when there has not been a call for humidity for an extended period of time.
5.
The cylinder will remain empty until there is a call for humidity at which time the fill
valve will open and refill the cylinder.
This feature will reduce the possibility of corrosion of the electrodes and the possible
accumulation of algae and bacteria growing in the cylinder.
