INSTALLATION
1.1
Location and Mounting
The probe should be located out of the direct flow of material. The CompactPro is designed to mount utilizing a 1”
NPS. When installing the COMPACT PRO in locations where moisture or moist air could enter the enclosure
through the electrical conduit, the conduit opening should be adequately sealed with a duct seal compound
1.2
Grounding
An equipment grounding connection (earth ground) must be supplied to the unit for safety and to insure proper operation of the unit. The CompactPro uses earth ground as a reference for calibration and detecting a covered or uncovered condition. A ground reference conductor is integrated within the probe allowing operation of the unit in nonmetallic vessels. Installation in a grounded metallic vessel will in some cases provide enhanced sensitivity.
1.3
Input Power and Field Wiring
The CompactPro operates from 115 VAC. Field wiring should conform to all national and local electrical codes. Terminals for the input power are labeled on the circuit board; L for the 115 volt hot wire, N for the neutral wire, and G for the
safety ground wire. Recommended wire size is 18 or 16 AWG. Note: The terminals are unpluggable to facilitate wiring. Hold down on the circuit board transformer when pulling up on the terminals to unplug them.

FAIL-SAFE SELECTION
2.1
Description
Fail-Safe means that the relay contact positions are set up so that in the event of a power failure the relay will de-energize to a condition that is deemed safe for the application.
2.2
Fail-Safe High
Fail-Safe High means that the relay will be energized when the probe is uncovered and will de-energize when the
probe is covered. In this mode, a power failure will cause the relay contacts to indicate that the probe is covered.

Fail-Safe Low
Fail-Safe Low means that the relay will be de-energized when the probe is uncovered and will energize when the
probe is covered. In this mode, a power failure will cause the relay contacts to indicate that the probe is uncovered.

CALIBRATION
A multiturn CALIBRATE control is used to compensate for the capacitance of the empty vessel and to set up the
desired sensitivity. A tool for adjusting the control is provided on the inside of the lid of the CompactPro. When finished, return the tool to its clip in the lid for future use.
3.1
Calibration Verification
Following calibration, the sensitivity setting that you have set in should be checked by verifying that the CompactPro
senses a covered probe condition with your material.
3.2
Calibration Procedure
(Probe must be uncovered, material at least 2 feet away from probe)
1.If the COVERED indicator light is OFF, turn the CALIBRATE control counter clockwise (CCW) until the indicator turns
ON. If the COVERED indicator is ON proceed with step 2.
2.Turn the CALIBRATE control slowly clockwise (CW) to the point where the COVERED indicator just turns OFF. Now
continue to turn the control clockwise (CW) to the desired sensitivity setting.

RELAY TIME DELAY
The CompactPro has a single turn control for adjusting the time delay from approximately 1 to 30 seconds. This is a
time delay for the output relay to change states after a covered or uncovered condition is sensed. The COVERED indicator light will immediately respond to a change in covered or uncovered condition regardless of the time delay setting.
Minimum time delay, 1 second, DELAY control full counter clockwise, CCW.
Maximum time delay, 30 seconds, DELAY control full clockwise, CW.
