1.0 MEANING OF 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

WARNING

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

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 1500 lbs (700 kg) of nozzle reaction force.

WARNING

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.

CAUTION

The electric Monsoon 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.

CAUTION

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

CAUTION

Maximum flow and pressure is 2000 GPM (7600 LPM) and 200 PSI (14 BAR). Damage or injury may result if the monitor is operated beyond these limits.

On many vehicle installations the monitor is the highest point on the apparatus. Often it is critical that the monitor be properly stowed before driving to avoid damage to overhead obstructions such as door openings. In these cases the use of a switch wired into the apparatus "door open" circuit is highly recommended. The switch should be wired to give a "door open" signal if the monitor is not in the stowed position. Due to the variety of possible mountings and nozzles, it is the installer's responsibility to supply the appropriate switch

3.0 GENERAL INFORMATION

The Monsoon Monitor is a manually operated monitor designed for flows up to 2000 gpm (7,600 l/min). Maximum operating pressure is

200 psi (14 bar). Unique patent pending segmented waterway has only 15 psi (1 bar) friction loss at 2000 gpm. Water makes very few turns as it travels though the monitor resulting in low friction loss and a far reaching effective stream. Elevation range is 90 degrees above horizontal to 45 degrees below. Field changeable elevation travel stops at 45 degrees above, 30 degrees above, and 30 degrees below horizontal. The manual model has 360 degree continuous horizontal rotation with field changeable stops at 45, 90, and 135 degrees either side of a center position. Available with various inlet flanges and threaded fittings. Inlet also made for direct connection to

TFT's electric Extend-A-Gun RC3 or RC4. Main waterway made from hardcoat anodized ANSI 356.0-T6 aluminum. Silver powder coat finish inside and out. Standard outlet is 3.5” NH (90 mm) rigid male thread.

The Monsoon RC is an electric remote controlled monitor that has all the benefits of the Monsoon monitor with the addition of powered operation. Designed for field changeable 12 VDC or 24 VDC operation. The Monsoon RC comes with a factory installed control panel mounted on the monitor for controlling horizontal rotation, elevation, and nozzle pattern. The motor control circuits are factory installed on the monitor and use position encoders and current limiting to protect the drive train at the ends of travel. Unit comes with ultra-flexing robotics cable already wired to the monitor so installation effort is minimized. Power wire has only four conductors (two for power and two for communications) further easing installation effort. Power wire is enclosed in a unique wire guide that allows 450 degrees of horizontal travel (225 degrees either side of a center position) which is far more reliable than slip rings or coil cords. Large handwheels for manual override are provided on the horizontal rotation and elevation drive. TFT's Master 2000 ER nozzle plugs into the factory installed nozzle power wire. Electric drives and control box are waterproof. Standard outlet is 3.5” NH (90 mm) rigid male thread.

3.2 PART IDENTIFICATION AND MODELS

The Monsoon Monitor comes in manual and electric remote controlled models. Manual models are available with either handwheel control on both axis or a tiller bar model that uses a tiller bar to control horizontal rotation. Electric remote control models are available in a standard model (suitable for on top of pumpers), a Ladder model and a Platform model. Compared to the standard model, the ladder or platform model uses smaller override knobs, has a smaller swing radius and has horizontal travel stops factory installed at 90° left and right (180° total). The various models of Monsoon monitors shown in figures 3.2A, 3.2B, 3.2C and 3.2D. The monitor mounted control station on the standard remote controlled model is shown in figure 3.2E.

3.5 ELECTRICAL CONTROLS

The electric Monsoon RC monitor is controlled by a powerful, state-of-the-art electronics system. The key components of the system are the motor control boards (Y5100) and a communication board (Y5110). 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 and are outlined in the following sections.

3.5.1 MOTOR CONTROL BOARD (MCB) AUTO CONFIGURE

Each monitor has three MCBs, one for each motor, which 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 it hits 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 gear drives.

3.5.4 MOTOR SLOW/FAST SPEED

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

After approximately 2 seconds the motor automatically ramps up to a fast speed, for quickly moving into position. When quickly changing directions, monitor retains speed from prior move. If low speed is selected, monitor does not ramp to high speed but remains in slow 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 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. See Operator Station Label or Fig 6.2.4.1

for instructions.

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 of user choice. 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. See section 6.2.3 and 6.2.4 for programming instructions.

4.0 INSTALLATION

4.1 STRUCTURAL REQUIREMENTS FOR MONITOR MOUNTING

The structure that the Monsoon 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 1,500 lbs (700 kg)

(2000 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 4A.

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

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 1500 lbs (700 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.

4.2 INLET FITTING OR EXTEND-A-GUN RC INSTALLATION

The Monsoon Monitor is available with various inlet fittings as shown in fig 3.3A. When the inlet fittings are used see figure 4.2A for the addition to overall height. The Monsoon Monitor also connects directly to TFT's Extend-A-Gun RC3 or RC4. The fittings and Extend-A-

Gun RC are attached to the monitor by means of a threaded joint with an o-ring seal. Once in the proper orientation the threaded joint is locked from rotation by two ¼-28 button head cap screws as shown in figure 4.2B. This makes for easy removal of the monitor since the large threads of the joint are not tightened and do not have any thread locking compounds on them. It is best to install the inlet fitting or

Extend-A-Gun RC to the apparatus and than install the monitor to the inlet fitting or Extend-A-Gun RC. This gives more room to install the bolts in the case of flanged fitting s. Referring to figures 4.2B and 4.2C the installation sequence is as follows:

1) Install inlet fitting or Extend-A-Gun RC to apparatus.

• Mount so that 180 degree apart threaded crossholes will give desired direction relative to the “Straight Ahead Reference Mark” when the monitor is installed. See figure 4.2B.

2) Screw monitor onto inlet fitting or Extend-A-Gun RC until threaded joint bottoms out.

• Do not use pipe dope or Loctite on the inlet base threads. These threads are sealed with an o-ring. The use of thread locking compounds will make removal difficult.

3) Unscrew monitor slightly until a pair of 90 degree apart slots lines up with the 180 degree apart threaded crossholes in the inlet fitting or Extend-A-Gun RC.

• Orient monitor so that the Straight Ahead Reference Mark is facing the desired direction.

• Slots will line up with threaded crossholes every 90 degrees of rotation.

• Monitor may be unscrewed up to one full turn from the bottomed out position.

4) Install ¼-28 by ½ long button head cap screws and washers in the two threaded crossholes. Use Loctite #271 on the threads of the button head cap screws.

Allow Loctite to fully cure before applying water pressure.

4.3 NOZZLE INSTALLATION

The nozzle is simply screwed onto the monitor's exit threads. If the nozzle is installed on a Monsoon RC (with electric motors) assure that the nozzle's coupling does not make contact with the horizontal drive motor housing when the monitor is in it's lowest elevation position.

For nozzles with electric pattern control, a cable with a female, waterproof connector is provided at the outlet of the Monsoon RC which attaches directly to TFT's electric Masterstream 1250, 1500 or 2000 nozzle. 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 Monsoon 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.

The electronic interface accepts +12/24 volt signals, but can be field changed to accept ground signals. See section 5.7.3.

The electronics enclosure is configured so that signals connected to the PRIMARY CONTROL cable will override any other operator stations (see section 6.2.1).

See Figure 5.11.2.2 for wiring connections.

NOTE: To avoid excessive voltage drop at monitor operator station, cable selection is critical.

Voltage supplied to ELECTRICS ENCLOSURE should not fall below 11 volts when monitor is in operation.

5.12 ELECTRIC NOZZLE ACTUATOR WIRING

The electric Monsoon RC monitor is designed to control and is factory wired for an electric actuated nozzle. A Task Force Tips, Inc.

Masterstream 1250, 1500 or 2000 nozzle is available with the proper electric connection. After mounting the Masterstream 1250, 1500 or 2000 nozzle onto the monitor, plug the male cord from the nozzle into the female cord located on the outlet of the monitor. Make sure the two coupling nuts are tightened securely to ensure a proper watertight seal.

If retrofitting an existing TFT nozzle, a male cord (TFT #Y5285) can be purchased and installed in place of the existing actuator cord.

Please consult factory for installation.

6.0 OPERATION

6.1 MANUAL MODEL

6.1.1 HORIZONTAL ROTATION CONTROL

A handwheel controls the monitor's horizontal rotation direction. Clockwise rotation of the handwheel moves the nozzle to the left and counter-clockwise rotation to the right. Approximately 14 turns of the handwheel will give a 90 degree change in horizontal rotation direction.

6.1.2 ELEVATION CONTROL

A handwheel controls the monitor's elevation direction. Clockwise rotation of the handwheel raises the elevation and counterclockwise lowers it. About 50 turns of the handwheel will give the complete 135 degree elevation travel range of the monitor.

APPLY FORCE

HORIZONTAL ROTATION

6.1.3 TILLER BAR MODEL

On the Tiller Bar model the horizontal rotation is changed by pushing or pulling horizontally on the Tiller Handle. Twisting the Rotation Locking Knob clockwise will increase the drag on the lower swivel joint to “lock” the monitor in a particular direction. See figure 6.1.3 for the Tiller Bar model controls.

CAUTION

Injury can result from the monitor changing direction due to an off center nozzle reaction. An off center nozzle reaction may be caused by debris in the nozzle causing an asymmetrical stream.

Always keep the rotation lock tight when not rotating the monitor. Always keep one hand on the tiller handle when loosening the locking knob. Where continuous 360 degree rotation of the monitor is not needed it is recommended that the Horizontal Rotation Stop Bolts (see section 4.4

for Stop Bolt locations) be installed to reduce any chance of the monitor spinning due to an off center nozzle reaction caused by debris trapped in the nozzle.

6.2 ELECTRICAL MODEL

6.2.1 OPERATOR STATIONS

The electric Monsoon RC monitor has eight different styles of operator stations for use in various locations on the fire truck or fire ground.

The design of the operator station communications allows users to override commands on other stations. The "last" button pressed has control. The overridden user can regain control by releasing their button and pressing again. The wireless and joystick operator stations cannot override commands from the primary operator station they are wired into, but can override other stations.

Platform and ladder electronics enclosures are pre-configured for one set of inputs to have a master override feature. The operator station connected to these inputs, typically at the base of the aerial, will override any other operator station.

Any operator station with a communication board or connected to a communication board can be field configured with the master override feature. This allows the user to setup an operator station on the fire truck or fire ground as the master override station. See

Section 6.2.2 for details.

6.2.1.1 MONITOR MOUNTED OPERATOR STATION

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

6.2.1.3 OPTIONAL OPERATOR STATION

This operator station allows the monitor to be operated from an additional location on the truck.

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. It is used to move slightly away from the truck to get a better view for redirecting the monitor.

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 (152 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.

6.2.1.8 INSTALL SUPPLIED CONTROLS

This operation control such as canbus, toggle switches allow control through a communication interface box or enclosure.

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 before use. 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 insures that the position is accurate. From that point, the programmer can program the move to the 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 and hold STOW button (~10 seconds) until LED blinks. Release button. LED will continue to blink while in program mode.

6.2.6 OVERRIDE HANDWHEELS

In the event of electrical system failure on the monitor or fire truck the Monsoon Monitor is factory supplied with handwheels or knobs so the monitor may be manually operated. The factory supplied handwheels are 6 inches in diameter. To make the Monsoon RC more compact the manual override handwheels may be removed.

The drive shafts have a hex so a wrench or socket may be used for manual override. Each drive shaft also has a secondary hex at midshaft so the shaft may be shortened by cutting and still have a wrenching hex. 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. If a support surface is not available, run the elevation against one of its travel stops to take some of the backlash out of the gear drive. 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.

8.0 MAINTENANCE AND INSPECTION

The Monsoon 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 before each use. Consult factory for recommended service procedure. Any inoperable or damaged parts should be repaired or replaced immediately.

• Make sure that the monitor's handwheels rotate 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.

8.1 LUBRICATION CHART

The Monsoon 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. The grease is applied by removing the plugs at the grease ports and replacing with grease fittings that have ¼-28 male threads. See figures 8.1A and 8.1B 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 than inspect for other causes of stiff operation.

Note: Do not over pump grease. The monitor's greased areas lead to large chambers that could trap several pounds of grease before becoming visible.

Install grease fittings here if desired.

Install grease fitting here if desired.

8.2 PERFORMANCE TESTING

Performance tests should be conducted on the Monsoon 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 test 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.

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.
