GENERAL
The Model PTS-C is designed to supervise sprinkler system control
valves and may also be used to secure gates and other applications. This
unit is particularly useful for unusual conditions, such as non-rising
stem valves.
Nema 6P enclosure allows the device to be mounted outdoors, even
in areas subject to flooding such as pits and wells. Sealed reed switch
operation virtually eliminates contact corrosion.
Turning the valve wheel will pull the plug out of the receptacle. The plug
cannot be reinserted after operation until the plug receptacle cover is
removed with the special hex key provided. This key should be left with
the building owner or responsible party. Replacement or additional cover
tamper screws and hex keys are available. For cover tamper screws, order
stock no. 5490344. For hex key, order stock no. 5250062.
INSTALLATION
Insert plug into housing, take the loose end of the cable and loop it
through the valve handle and into the housing. Adjust the length of
cable so the plug must be pulled from the housing when the valve is
closed. Cut off excess cable and terminate on the plug terminals of the
PC board. Do not leave more than 2" (50mm) of excess wiring in the
housing. Dress wires to outside edge of housing so as not to interfere
with cover tamper.
WIRE CHECKOUT
With the plug wired to the two P terminals and the plug inserted fully
into the receptacle, place an ohmmeter across the C and N.O. terminals.
The meter will show Open. Unplug the plug from the receptacle. The
meter will show continuity.
NOTE: The two P terminals will always show continuity when the plug
is connected regardless of whether the plug is inserted or not.
The cover tamper switch can be wired into the plug circuit or wired as
a separate circuit. (See wiring diagrams.)
TESTING
The PTS-C and its associated protective monitoring system should be
tested in accordance with applicable NFPA codes and standards and/or
the authority having jurisdiction (manufacturer recommends quarterly
or more frequently).
CAUTION: Be sure valve is fully open before restoring PTS-C.
WARNING
As Stipulated By Factory Mutual And Underwriters Laboratories
This unit is not intended or designed for ordinary use. It is a special application device to be used for unusual conditions such as non-rising stem
gate valves where no other approved or listed method of protection is available or practical. As this unit does not meet NFPA codes and standards,
requiring restoration signal when the valve is positioned to normal, special attention should be given by the responsible parties to assure that the
proper operation of this device is maintained. This device should only be restored to normal when the valve is in the normal condition.
