1.0 MEANING OF SAFETY SIGNAL WORDS

A safety related message is identified by a safety alert symbol and a signal word to indicate the level of risk involved with a particular hazard. Per ANSI standard Z535.4-1998, the definitions of the three signal words are as follows:

DANGER

DANGER indicates an imminently hazardous situation which, if not avoided, will result in death or serious injury.

WARNING

WARNING indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious injury.

CAUTION

CAUTION indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, may result in minor or moderate injury.

2.0 SAFETY

The operation of this monitor can be dangerous. The following must be observed at all times.

WARNING

Injury can result from an inadequately supported monitor. The monitor mount must be capable of supporting 400 lbs (180 kg) of nozzle reaction force.

WARNING

CAUTION

CAUTION

The stream exiting a monitor is very powerful and capable of causing injury and property damage.

Make sure the monitor is securely attached to the base and pointing in a safe direction before water to the monitor is turned on. Use care in directing the stream.

The electric Tornado RC may be remotely operated. The electric drives are current limited but may still produce enough force to cause injury. Keep hands and fingers away from pinch points on the monitor.

Do not use the manual override knobs while the electric controls are in operation. The electric drives produce enough torque to cause injury.

CAUTION

Maximum flow and pressure is 500 gpm (1900 l/min) and 200 psi (14 bar). Damage or injury may result if the monitor is operated beyond these limits.

CAUTION

On many vehicle installations, the monitor is the highest point on the apparatus. Be sure there is sufficient clearance to safely pass under any doors or overhead obstructions. Always check stowed position of the monitor before moving.

3.0 GENERAL INFORMATION

The Tornado monitor is a 2-inch, 500 gpm maximum monitor. It is available in a manually operated model as well as an electric remote controlled model. The electric remote controlled model is known as the Tornado RC. Further specifications are shown in the following sections.

3.5 ELECTRICAL CONTROLS

The electric Tornado RC monitor is controlled by a very powerful, state-of-the-art electronics system. The key components of the system are the motor control boards and a communication board. Each motor control board has its own microprocessor and a sophisticated motor control chip. The communication board also has a microprocessor, which handles the interface to the operator stations. All the components on these boards are solid state; there are no relays or electro-mechanical devices to wear out over time. The hardware and software have been designed with several key features:

3.5.1 MOTOR CONTROL BOARD (MCB) AUTO CONFIGURE

Each monitor has three MCBs, one for each motor. The MCB controls motor movement and direction for horizontal rotation, elevation, and nozzle pattern. In the unlikely event of a MCB failure, the failed board can be removed and one of the other two remaining MCBs can be moved into that position. This MCB will then auto configure itself to take over the control of that axis, so that the monitor can continue to be used, with two of the three motors. This is also a helpful benefit when troubleshooting and requires fewer spare parts to be stocked.

3.5.2 MOTOR CURRENT LIMITING

The microprocessor on the MCB continuously monitors the motor current. As the motor reaches an end stop or if there is an obstruction, the motor current rises very quickly and the motor control chip automatically shuts down the motor in a few milliseconds. This eliminates the need for any type of external limit switches and the associated wiring. The microprocessor also locks the operator from moving in the stopped direction again, until the operator first moves in the opposite direction.

3.5.3 MOTOR SOFT STOPS

The horizontal and vertical motors are equipped with feedback encoders, which allow the microprocessor to know the motor position at all times. The first time a motor reaches an end stop or strikes an obstruction, the microprocessor sets a new soft stop position just before the end stop. From that point, on when the axis approaches the stop, the MCB automatically slows down the motor until the end stop is reached. This significantly reduces the wear on the motor, gearbox, and geardrives.

3.5.4 MOTOR SLOW/FAST SPEED

When an operator presses one of the buttons, the associated motor starts in low speed mode for accurate control of the water stream.

After approximately 1/2 second the motor automatically ramps up to high speed, for quickly moving into position. When quickly changing directions, monitor remains at speed of prior move. If low speed is selected, monitor does not ramp to high speed but remains in low speed.

3.5.5 COMMUNICATION PROTOCOL

The communication from the monitor to the operator stations is performed over two wires using RS-485 serial protocol. Multiple operator stations can be added with only two wires for power and two wires for the RS-485 protocol between each station.

3.5.6 OSCILLATE AND STOW FEATURES

The OSCILLATE feature allows the user to program up to 65 points of continuous movement of the horizontal and vertical axes. The

OSCILLATE pattern can be programmed from any operator station that has the OSC button.

The STOW feature allows the user to move the monitor, with one touch of a button, to a safe position before moving the fire truck. The monitor will always move to two end stops to verify the correct position. During the programming procedure, the user has the ability to select which axis moves first. This is helpful to avoid lights, hoses, obstructions, etc. The user can program up to 10 points of movement to reach the final stow position. The STOW pattern can be programmed from any operator station that has the STOW button. A relay contact is available for connection to the truck alarm system.

4.0 INSTALLATION

4.1 STRUCTURAL REQUIREMENTS FOR MONITOR MOUNTING

The structure that the Tornado Monitor is mounted to must withstand the internal pressure of the monitor, as well as shear and bending forces due to nozzle reaction. Nozzle reaction can be as high as 400 lbs (180 kg) (500 gpm at 200 psi).

For flanged connections, the use of flat flanges without raised faces is recommended. Use a full-face gasket as defined in SME 16.21 or ISO

7483. Tighten flange bolts in an alternating sequence as shown in figure

4.1. Tighten to 76-80 ft-lb (100-110 Newton-Meters).

3

Tighten sequentially each bolt three times.

2

Fig 4.1 Flange Bolt Tightening Sequence

WARNING

Injury can result from an inadequately supported monitor. The monitor mount must be capable of supporting the nozzle reaction force which can be as high as 400 lbs (180 kg). Flanges and pipe made from plastic are inadequate for monitor mounting and must not be used. This monitor is not recommended for portable use.

4.3 NOZZLE INSTALLATION

The nozzle is simply screwed onto the monitor's exit threads.

For nozzles with electric pattern control, a cable with a female, waterproof connector is provided at the outlet of the Tornado RC which attaches directly to several of TFT's electric nozzles. The cable used is a dual-key, micro type plug assembly. Any other nozzle should have the corresponding male electrical connector installed. The waterproof cap should be installed when using stacked tips. Do not cut off the female connector on the monitor. This connector is molded onto the cable and must remain in place to maintain the water tightness of the electrical system.

CAUTION

The nozzle threads must match the threads of the Tornado monitor in both size and type.

Mismatched or damaged threads may cause the nozzle to leak or uncouple under pressure and could cause injury.

CAUTION

Do not connect aluminum to brass or brass to aluminum. Dissimilar metals coupled together can cause galvanic corrosion that will freeze the threaded joint or cause complete loss of thread engagement. If dissimilar metals must be coupled together, the effects of corrosion can be greatly delayed by various coatings on the metal such as powder paint, hard anodizing, or silicone grease.

4.4 PRESSURE GAGE PORT

There is a raised boss on the back of the monitor. This raised boss is not machined from the factory but may be drilled and tapped for ¼

NPT threads if a pressure gage is desired on the monitor.

4.5 DRAIN

There is no drain on the Torando Monitor itself. A drain valve should be installed on the monitor's inlet piping.

5.0 ELECTRICAL CONTROLS INSTALLATION

The electric RC monitor is supplied with a monitor mounted electronics box. The wiring on the monitor and for this electronics box is factory installed. The assembly is supplied with a 12-foot (3.7 m) length of cable for connection to the operator control stations as shown in Figure 5.0.0 and 5.0.1. This cable has 4-conductors which supply power and the communications from the operator stations to the monitor. To complete the installation, the installer will need to mount and wire the selected operator station boxes. The power supply for the monitor will need to be connected to a protected circuit from the truck's power distribution center. Refer to the specifications section for nominal current draw.

!

Good mechanical connections on the wires are absolutely necessary and should be checked periodically.

connections can cause power loss to the Tornado RC and be a fire hazard.

Poor electrical

Careful selection of wiring is critical to avoid excessive voltage drop.

Be careful to route cables in a protected area away from high heat sources.

Use grommets whenever wires pass through holes to prevent damage due to snags, abrasions, etc.

Secure cables close to control box with plastic wire ties or cable clamps to relieve stress on the cables.

Disconnect power before installing or servicing the electrical components. The RC monitor control boxes and motors are not rated as ignition proof, explosion proof, or intrinsically safe.

WARNING

The electric motors and other components are ignition sources. The electric drives should be operated only in areas where there is adequate ventilation and no hazard of flammable vapor buildup.

6.0 OPERATION

6.1 MANUAL TILLER MODEL

6.1.1 HORIZONTAL ROTATION AND ROTATION LOCK

The horizontal rotation of the stream is changed by pushing or pulling horizontally on the Tornado's Tiller Bar. Twisting the Horizontal

Rotation Locking Knob clockwise will increase the drag on the swivel joint to “lock” the monitor in a particular direction.

6.1.2 ELEVATION CONTROL AND ELEVATION ROTATION LOCK

The elevation of the stream is changed by pushing or pulling vertically on the Tornado's Tiller Bar. Twisting the Elevation Locking Knob clockwise will increase the drag on the swivel joint to “lock” the monitor at a particular elevation. Select discharge devices that do not exceed the 25 ft-lb locking capability of the elevation lock.

6.1.3 COUNTER BALANCING NOZZLE, IF DESIRED

The weight of the nozzle will make the elevation swing downward quickly when the Locking knob is loosened, unless the Tiller Handle is held. If this is undesirable, then weight may be attached to the Tiller Handle to counterbalance the weight of the nozzle. If weight is added, assure that it is securely attached and does not interfere with operation of the monitor.

CAUTION

CAUTION

CAUTION

Master stream flows are very powerful and capable of causing injury and property damage. Make sure the monitor is pointing in a safe direction before water to the monitor is turned on. Use care in directing the stream.

Care must be taken when loosening the Elevation Locking Knob so the nozzle does not swing down quickly. Keep one hand on the Tiller Bar while loosening the Elevation Locking Knob. Be prepared to exert force on the Tiller Bar as the Knob is loosened.

When water pressure is reduced, the nozzle will swing down if the Elevation Locking Knob is not adequately tightened.

6.2 ELECTRICAL MODEL

6.2.1 OPERATOR STATIONS

The electric Tornado RC monitor has six different styles of operator stations for use in various locations on the apparatus or scene.

6.2.1.1 MONITOR MOUNTED OPERATOR STATION

This operator station is factory installed on the monitor and is used by personnel directly at the monitor.

6.2.1.2 PRIMARY OPERATOR STATION

This operator station is installed on the truck, for example the pump operator's panel. It is used to operate the monitor from a location on the truck. Commands from the primary operator station will override the monitor mounted operator station.

6.2.1.3 OPTIONAL OPERATOR STATION

This operator station allows the monitor to be operated from an additional location on the truck. Commands from the optional operator station will override the monitor mounted operator station.

6.2.1.4 TETHER OPERATOR STATION

This operator station is tethered to the truck with either a 30 foot (9 meter) cable or a 100 foot (30.5 meter) cable. Operating slightly away from the truck gives a better view for redirecting the monitor. Commands from the tether operator station will override the monitor mounted operator station.

6.2.1.5 WIRELESS OPERATOR STATION

This operator station uses RF signals to control the monitor. It is used to move far away from the truck to get a better view for redirecting the monitor. Maximum range is 500 ft (150 meters). The wireless transmitter is coded to a particular monitor so several wireless monitors may be in use at the same location without interference. It uses rechargeable batteries that will give 160 hours of continuous operation when fully charged. When not in use, the wireless transmitter should be kept in its charging base. The transmitter will turn on a red LED to warn the operator when the battery charge is low. After this point, there are less than 8 hours of continuous use available.

To activate the transmitter, press the green button at the top. While the transmitter is active, the yellow LED will blink continuously.

Pressing the red button at the bottom will deactivate the transmitter. The transmitter will automatically deactivate after 10 minutes if no buttons are pressed.

6.2.1.6 JOYSTICK OPERATOR STATION

This operator station is installed in a protected location and allows the monitor to be controlled by a joystick.

6.2.1.7 TOGGLE SWITCH OPERATOR STATION

This operator station allows the monitor to be operated by three toggle switches.

20

6.2.2 MASTER OVERRIDE FEATURE (DIP #1)

Any operator station with a communication board can be reconfigured with the master override feature. These stations include the Y4E-RP, Y4E-RO, Y4E-CT-30, Y4E-CT-100,

Y4E-TS, or any inputs connected to an Y4E-COMM. To enable the master override feature on an operator station, follow these steps:

1. Remove lid from enclosure.

2. Locate DIP switches on communication board.

3. Slide DIP switch #1 to the ON position.

4. Replace lid. Verify rubber seal is clean and undamaged.

Verify that no wires are caught between lid and box.

Figure 6.2.2

Master Override Setup

6.2.3 STOW FEATURE

The STOW position needs to be programmed during installation. The monitor needs to “find” two (2) hard stops, one for each axis, before the monitor can move to the STOW position. When programming, the first two commands teach the monitor where to find the hard stops. This guarantees that the position is accurate. From that point, the operator can program the move to the final STOW position.

During normal operation, each time the STOW button is pressed, the monitor moves the nozzle to the full straight stream position, moves to each programmed hard stop, and then moves to the STOW position. While the monitor is performing the STOW feature, pressing any button will stop the monitor.

6.2.3.1 PROGRAMMING

STOW programming must be initiated within 1 minute of applying power to monitor. After 1 minute, programming access is blocked.

Power must then be cycled to reset 1 minute timer.

Press & hold STOW button (~10 seconds) until LED blinks. Release button. LED will continue to blink while in program mode.

FIRST AXIS TO MOVE:

Press & release LEFT/RIGHT or UP/DOWN button of axis that will move to first hard stop. LED will blink rapidly when hard stop is reached.

SECOND AXIS TO MOVE:

Press & release LEFT/RIGHT or UP/DOWN button of axis that will move to second hard stop. LED will blink rapidly when hard stop is reached.

MOVE TO STOW POSITION:

Use LEFT/RIGHT or UP/DOWN buttons to move monitor to first point of stow routine, press & release STOW button. LED will blink rapidly to acknowledge position.

Repeat until pattern is complete (up to 10 points).

Press & hold STOW button until LED turns off. Release button.

6.2.3.2 STOW PROGRAMMING EXAMPLE

- Press & hold STOW button until LED blinks.

- Press & release UP button, monitor will move until hard stop reached. LED blinks rapidly.

- Press DOWN button to move 90 degrees, Press & release STOW button. LED blinks rapidly.

- Press & hold STOW button until LED turns off.

6.2.4 OSCILLATE FEATURE

The OSCILLATE feature allows the user to program a repeating pattern to control the horizontal and vertical axes of the monitor. While in the OSCILLATE pattern, the monitor will pause while the user changes the stream pattern. Pressing any other button will stop the

OSCILLATE pattern.

A label is supplied with each operator station that can be mounted on or near the station as a reminder of how to program the

OSCILLATE pattern. The OSCILLATE pattern needs to be programmed before use. The pattern will be cleared each time power is cycled to the monitor. For fixed monitors, the monitor may be configured to store the program permanently. See Section 6.2.4.2.

6.2.6 OVERRIDE KNOBS

In the event of electrical system failure on the monitor or fire apparatus, the Tornado RC

Monitor is factory supplied with override knobs so the monitor may be manually operated.

If desirable, the override knobs may be removed. The drive shafts have a hex so a wrench or socket may be used for manual override. The wrenching hexes are shown in figure 6.2.3.

6.3 RECOMMENDED STOWING POSITION

For truck mounted applications, it is recommended that the monitor be stowed in a position such that the monitor's nozzle rests against a bracket or support surface. This will minimize bouncing of the nozzle when the apparatus is traveling. Always be sure

the monitor is properly stowed before moving the truck and know the overall height to avoid damage from overhead obstructions such as doors or bridges.

6.5 STREAM STRAIGHTENERS

6.5.1 STREAM STRAIGHTENERS WITH STACKED TIP NOZZLES

Turbulence though the Tornado Monitor is very low, but stream quality and reach can be improved with the use of a stream straightener on the TFT stacked tip nozzle. See figure 6.4.2 for the TFT stream straightener friction loss.

6.5.2 STREAM STRAIGHTENERS WITH FOG NOZZLES

When using a fog nozzle for flows below 300 gpm (1,100 l/min), it is recommended that no stream straightener be used since the fog nozzle's flow path generally serves as a stream straightener. Above 300 gpm (1,100 l/min), TFT's 5 inch Stream Straightener will generally improve a fog nozzle's stream.

7.0 MAINTENANCE AND INSPECTION

The Tornado Monitor requires little maintenance. The monitor should be kept clean and free of dirt. All controls should be checked for freedom of movement and proper operation periodically. Any inoperable or damaged parts should be repaired or replaced immediately.

!

!

!

Make sure that the monitor rotates freely and without binding throughout its range of travel.

Make sure that there are no leaks when the monitor is flowing water.

Make sure the nozzle is free of debris.

7.1 LUBRICATION

The Tornado monitor generally should not require greasing. In the event that the operation becomes stiff, grease may be applied to the horizontal rotation and elevation worm gears. See figure 3.2B for grease port locations. Use medium viscosity automotive chassis grease. Apply only enough grease to restore normal operation. If normal operation is not restored by greasing, inspect for other causes of stiff operation.

Note: Do not over pump grease. The grease fittings are located close to the seals and only an ounce or so of grease should be sufficient.

7.2 PERFORMANCE TESTING

Performance tests should be conducted on the Tornado Monitor after repairs are made, or any time a problem is reported to verify operation in accordance with Task Force Tips test procedures. Consult the factory for the procedure that corresponds to the model and serial number of your monitor. Any equipment that fails the test criteria should be removed from service immediately. Equipment can be returned to the factory for service and testing.

YE-REMAUX Remote Auxiliary Interface Box

The Remote Auxiliary Interface Box allows a user to utilize the AUX1 and AUX2 buttons located on the monitor operator station or any remote operator station. The Interface Box is equipped with two relays that can operate lights, interface to a valve controller or in some cases operate a valve directly, etc. The contact rating of the relay is 16 amps @ 30VDC for resistive loads and 8 amps @ 30VDC for inductive loads.

The installer will need to mount the interface box and connect the cable to power and the communication link of the monitor.

WARNING

The Interface Box provides no overload protection for the device it is controlling. Failure to provide overload protection will damage relay contacts, which will disable device being controlled.

1.0 ENCLOSURE MOUNTING

Select proper enclosure location. Enclosure is designed to be surface mounted and the size is 5” x 3 1/8” (127 x 80mm).

Height of enclosure is 2 3/8” (60mm). Refer to Figure 1.0.1 for mounting hole dimensions.

MOUNT ENCLOSURE

1.1 ELECTRICAL WIRING

The interface box needs to be connected to +12/24VDC (red) and ground (black). The blue & white wires from the interface box cable need to be connected to the blue & white wires from the monitor. A terminal box or a high quality, protected splice can be used to make these connections. See section 5.0 of installation manuals for further wiring information.

Each relay has one Form-C contact (common, normally open, normally closed) that can be used.

YE-RF-900 Wireless Operator Station, 900 MHz

The Wireless Operator Station is radio linked to the monitor so that the operator can control the water discharge from the best vantage point. This operator station gives the user full control of the monitor including the STOW, OSCillate, and any

AUXiliary functions. Every TFT RC monitor is shipped with the receiver and antenna pre-mounted in the monitor control box. All the user needs to do is mount the storage bracket and teach the ID code to the handheld unit.

The range of the wireless operator station is 500 ft (152 m) and the handheld unit is powered by four (4) AA batteries, lithium batteries are recommended. Lithium batteries will provide 33 hours of continuous operation. When the battery voltage falls below a set level, the POWER led will begin to flash. At this point there is ~3 hours of continuous operation remaining. Other battery types will significantly reduce operating time and unit reliability.

The handheld unit will automatically turn off after 5 minutes if no buttons are pressed.
