Introduction
General Description
The D-Determinator is part of a modular system solution for the dosing of cleaning products into cleaning application (i.e.
CIP, bottlewashers or other cleaning process). It offers a high level of flexibility: The D-Determinator can operate by itself or
networked for a multi-zone application.
The concentration of cleaning solution can be controlled via a fixed volume of product per time or by measuring
the conductivity, pH or the RedOx potential and controlling to a desired setpoint.
Up to two additional products can be added either as fixed volume per time or proportional to the volume of the
main product.
A separate and typically larger initial charge pump can be configured to add the main product faster.
Up to four D-Determinators can be networked together, via CAN-Bus, using the same equipment controlling
cleaning solution being distributed to multiple dosing points.
The process equipment that can be monitored and controlled by a D-Determinator unit is shown below. Not all of the
equipment shown below is required for every dosing application. To improve material tracking functionality additional flow
transmitters can be added to monitor consumption. Low level sensors can be added to check the level of product in the supply
tanks or drums.
All these process signals can be connected to the D-Determinator, but the only equipment that is required are the dosing
pumps.

The D-Determinator system is comprised of a wall mountable control unit with a separate access area for the field connections.
The control panel has 4 keys and a LCD display with 2 rows by 16 characters per row. All activities of the dosing system are
controlled and monitored from the LCD display and the attached external devices. The control system is configured using the
commands and input screens on the LCD display.
The D-Determinator has four electronic AC relay outputs for controlling four pieces of dosing equipment (dosing pumps or
valves). For each dosing item, there is one power digital output driving the pump or, in "Slave"-Mode the valves. Four
additional relay outputs control the stroke pulses if stroked dosing pumps are used. The
D-Determinators dosing operations can be activated and inhibited from an external device through the trigger release input.
"Initial Charge" and "Start-Up" dosing can also be started by an external device through separate trigger inputs. Optionally,
the D-Determinator system can be networked to a computer running configuration and monitoring software that operates
through the CAN-Bus interface.
More than one D-Determinator may be connected together using the same process equipment to control different stages of a
machine. In this case one D-Determinator is "Master" and controls all dosing equipment and one part of the machine. The
other D-Determinator (s) act as slaves and control valves from the transport line to "their" part of the machine.
When a system with a single D-Determinator is running in Automatic Mode, the D-Determinator controls the dosing
equipment per the configuration enter into the controller. A system composed of more than one D-Determinator running in
Automatic Mode requires a CAN-Bus -Interfaces. The D-Determinator configured as the Master controls the dosing
equipment and all "Slave" nodes make request for product to the Master and wait for a response.

The possible operation modes for a D-Determinator are as follows:
No Release : No dosing activity possible
Automatic : Dosing automatically
Initial Charge : Dosing an initial charge
Start-Up : Dosing a start-up charge
Manual : Dosing a manually set charge of product
D-Determinator Control Features
Controls dosing equipment for one main product and up to two supplementary products in Automatic or Manual
Mode.
Monitors daily and total consumption for each cleaning product via a pulse flowmeter or by counting the time the
dosing pump is running. The pulse flowmeter option provides a more accurate consumption amount, but it requires
additional process equipment.
Triggers alarm messages and halts current processing step when process alarms occur.
Systems can be networked through an optional CAN-Bus interface.
The configuration menus are password protection.
Several different operating modes for controlling the dosing pumps.
Several different operating modes for controlling the cleaning solutions concentration.
An additional high capacity pump can be connected to reduce the time required to complete an initial charge or
startup charge.

Hardware Setup
Notes on Safety
To ensure that the controller functions perfectly and has a long, useful life, the user must observe the instructions in this
manual and must proceed according to the conditions of use. Commissioning and maintenance personnel must have been
trained and authorized to carry out such activities. Appropriate measures must be taken to prevent unintended actuation and
causing detrimental influences on the process. The applicable prevention and safety regulations for electrical devices must be
observed during operation, maintenance and repair of the controller.
A qualified electrician must make all electrical connections. Always disconnect from power supply before opening the cover.
Warning: Danger of electrical shock inside.
Electrical components should not be exposed to water or moisture. If this occurs by accident, a qualified electrician must
service the unit.
A qualified electrician following all the local and country electrical codes should install the D-Determinator.
Mounting and location
The D-Determinator unit should be mounted on a clean, vertical surface and kept away from heat (<50C), moisture and
vibrations. As shown in the mounting diagram (Appendix E), there are six mounting holes to mount the D-Determinator unit
to a wall - three on each side on the back wall of the plastic box. When you have located the place for the control unit, mount
the box securely in place.
See flow sensors manual for proper mounting of the desired flow sensor.
See conductivity sensors manual for proper mounting of the desired conductivity sensor.
If other sensors are used such as pH or RedOx verify they are installed properly by checking their installations manuals.
Wiring notes
For the electrical wiring of the components, pay attention to the maximum cable lengths between the D-Determinator unit and
the other components (refer to the technical manuals of the components). Connect wiring as shown in wiring diagram
(Appendix B).
Power Wiring
Make sure the power is OFF which connecting it to the D-Determinator. Verify the power jumper is in the proper location
(115VAC or 230VAC) before connecting power to the D-Determinator. Make sure that all attached equipment is in
conformance with the electrical specifications (Appendix A).
Analog Inputs
Analog Sensor: There are two analog input channels available on the D-Determinator. They can be configured for
conductivity (typically), RedOx, ClO
2
, temperature, pH or direct.
Flow Sensor: The three pulse flow sensors channels. These flow sensors are optional equipment and can be disabled during
configuration if not connected. In this case no direct measurement of product consumption is possible; the product flow will
be calculated from the characteristics of the dosing pump. The product consumptions will also be calculated from the pump
characteristics.
Digital Inputs
D-Determinator (Software Version 1.21) 12/2002 FB5110INTissB
Page 8
These digital inputs are potential free digital input signals. All input clamps also feature 0 volt and 24 volt access.
Low Level Switches: Connect level switches for the empty level. An OFF signal (open contact) refers to an empty tank; a
ON' signal (closed contact) refers to a tank that is not empty. A broken wire or a faulty connection will also prompt an alarm.
If this contact is opened while product is running, an immediate alarm will be produced and the dosing pump will be stopped.
If there isnt and actual low level switch in the product drum then these channels need to have a manual jumper install across
the contact to allow the dosing pump to run. If this jumper is install there is a good possibility that the pump will run when the
chemical drum is empty. This may cause damage to the dosing pump. It is recommended that a low level switch be installed
on the pickup lance of the chemical and wired to these inputs for safety.
Release Trigger. The Release Trigger can be connected to a switch or to an external device, for remote triggering of the
system. The system will run in automatic mode when the external contact is closed.
Initial Charge/ Start-Up. These inputs can be connected to a switch or to an external device, for remote the starting of an
initial charge (or start-up) dosing. The system will start when the external contact is closed.
Machine Counter. This input is used to dosing product based on an external signal that represents machine activity. Such as
a rack counter for a bottlewasher or a keg counter for a keg washer. The cleaning product will be dosed proportional to the
rate the machine is running per this signal.
Digital Outputs
Connect the 4 dosing pumps to the respective output ports. If you are using a stroke pump, connect the pump also to the
corresponding Stroke output port. The Stroke outputs are the optical relays that are labeled SxC and SxE, where x is the
dosing pump number 1 to 4. These channels have a maximum voltage of 24 volts DC. There are also control relays that the
dosing pumps can be wired to that can handle higher voltages. These control relays are labeled PxA and PxB where x is the
dosing pump number 1 to 4. The PxA relay contacts are for 24 volts DC and the PxB relay contacts are for supply voltage
(either 115VAC or 230 VAC). See the wiring sketches below for more details.
The D-Determinator system provides two other relay outputs to notify the operator when the system is in alarm and the system
is running. The alarm output can be used to trigger an external device, such as a lamp or a horn. The running output signifies
normal operation, and can be attached to an external device, also.
For the maximum output ratings, see the Specifications sheet (Appendix B)

System Configuration
General
The D-Determinator system can automatically control the chemical concentration of the cleaning solution by feeding the necessary
product into the machinery. To accomplish this, the D-Determinator monitors 2 analog sensors and controls up to 4 pumps or
valves.
Sensors: Sensor 1: measures the cleaning solutions conductivity, pH, RedOx, ClO
2
or
directly measures any analog transmitter (current loop)
Sensor 2: measures temperature for compensation of sensor 1, simply measure
temperature or a second RedOx sensor can be connected.
Pumps: Equipment 1: doses main product
Equipment 2: doses additional product 1
Equipment 3: doses additional product 2
Equipment 4: pumps main product during Initial Charge or Startup
Equipment 1 can be configured to perform a time constant dosing ("Volume Fix") or to control the concentration of cleaning
solution to an analog setpoint (Analog Regulatory). To pump the higher amount of the main product during an initial charge
operation a larger pump can be installed and connected to Equipment 4. This pump will only be used during Initial Charge and
Start-Up operations. While the system is running in Automatic Mode, dosing will be performed automatically until the Trigger
Release input is OFF (open contact) requesting the D-Determinator to stop automatic control.
Equipment 2 and 3 can be configured to deliver product on a time constant dosing ("Volume Fix") or to control to a ratio of the
main product dosed, this mode is call Dependant. In dependant mode the amount of product 2 and 3 that will be dosed is based on
the ratio of the consumption amounts, main product to product 2 and/or product 3. The product may or may not be dosed at the
same time depending on the minimum feed amounts for products 2 and 3.
When a process alarm (i.e. low level in product drum) is generated the dosing pumps are stopped. There are several alarms that
will cause the dosing to stop and there are others that are only warnings, they are listed in Appendix G.
The configuration menus and consumption resets are password protected, so only authorized individuals can perform these tasks.
When inappropriate values are entered in the Configuration Menu, or a setting is not possible, the D-Determinator system will
inform the user.
While the system is being configured, the D-Determinator system will not perform any dosing - all of the system outputs are
blocked and the field signals are set OFF (open contact). When the Configuration Menu is exited, the system is immediately ready
to perform the desired dosing operation.

System Flow Charts and Control Panel Keys
The four system flow charts - Operation Menu and Configuration Menu (includes two Submenus) (see Appendix C) - are the road
maps that will guide anyone through the D-Determinator operations and configurations screens. Whether you want to configure
the system to run automatically, activate a manual dosing, or view product consumption totals, the flow charts will show you the
path you must take to accomplish your task.
The D-Determinator system commands, which appear on the LCD display and rotate in a looping fashion. Depending on which
key you press on the control panel in different operator screens will be displayed depending on which area of the D-Determinator
the operator is working.
The two control panel keys, Select and Enter, are indicated on the flow charts by S and E, respectively. These keys generally
represent the two different options which are available from any given display screen in the D-Determinator Control system. With

If no temperature compensation is needed, this option can be set inactive (Select N). In this case D-Determinator switches back to
the beginning screen of "Select sensor / 1: ...".
If the conductivity transmitter cannot perform the temperature compensation, this option should be activated (Select Y). In this
case the second sensor must be a temperature sensor. So, the configuration of sensor 2 will allow no other option besides
temperature.
Cond. Temp.Coeff
1: 9,99 %/C
For temperature compensation two values must be entered: the temperature coefficient and the reference temperature. The
temperature coefficient describes the change of measured conductivity in conjunction with a change in temperature. The data sheet
of the installed conductivity sensor should have a value for its temperature coefficient.
Cond. Ref.Temp.
1: 25,0 C
The reference temperature defines, at which temperature the conductivity has been calibrated. The data sheet of the conductivity
sensor should have a value for the reference temperature.
A positive temperature coefficient describes a rising measured conductivity with rising temperature; the measured value will be
reduced to give the correct reading. A negative temperature coefficient describes a falling measured conductivity with rising
temperature. The example diagram below shows different curves for both positive and negative temperature coefficient.

equipment 1 as this equipment will be used for Initial Charge dosing if equipment 4 is disabled.
Analog Regulator
In the analog regulator control mode the measured value from analog input 1 is compared to a desired setpoint. Depending on the
selected Regulator Control Mode (discussed below) and the dosing operation configured on equipment 1 the D-Determinator will
try to maintain the entered setpoint:
Dosing of product 1 is done in portions defined by the parameters "Dose Time" and "Wait Time". If a dosing process is running, it
will be stopped after "Dose Time". Then the D-Determinator will wait until the end of the "Wait Time" to check the process
conditions. If the dosing condition is still valid, dosing will be continued until the setpoint is reached or an alarm is generated.
Dose Time
1: 9.999 sec
Wait Time

If the measured value is higher than "Setpoint" dosing of product 1 will
be stopped.
If the measured value is below the alarm level "Min. Alarm" a warning
message is generated and the automatic dosing process continues. If
the measured value is above the alarm level "Max. Alarm" an alarm is
generated and the automatic dosing process is stopped.
As with Setpoint and Deadband the alarm levels are set in same units and scale as defined by the scale of analog input 1. For
example if input 1 is defined as conductivity with a range of 0....800 S then the possible range for Min./ Max. Alarm is the same.

Volume fix
A Volume Fix mode control is open loop dosing of an amount of product per time, independent of any measured values. Two
parameters are necessary: volume and interval time. When an interval starts, a dosing process is started. If the set amount of
product has been dosed, the dosing is stopped until the end of the interval time. Then at the next interval time the dosing is started
again.

Dependant
In dependant mode, the amount of product 2 or 3 is set in relationship to product 1. If, for example, a value of 0..200 is entered for
the relationship, the equipment will dose, on average, 20% of the mass of this product compared to the mass of product 1.
To prevent the equipment being started too often, a minimum volume is defined. If the need for product 2 or 3 exceeds this limit, a
dosing process is started dosing the complete necessary amount of product.

Automatic dosing
During automatic dosing the operation depends on the selected operation mode, see chapter "Equipment Configuration", and on
the configuration of the equipment.
Once configured Equipment 1 (main product) can dose product with these control algorithms, "Analog Regulator", "Volume Fix +
2nd Control" or "Volume Fix", see below for details of these modes. Equipment 2 and 3 can use, simultaneously to Equipment 1,
these control algorithms "Volume Fix" or "Dependant" mode.
Analog Regulator
The measured value from analog input 1 is compared to a setpoint. Depending on the selected Regulator Control Mode the
following happens:
Control Mode Positive:
(Reg.Crtl. Mode = Pos)
If the measured value on analog input 1is higher than "Setpoint" +
"Deadband" dosing of product 1 will be started.
If the measured value on analog input 1is lower than "Setpoint" dosing
of product 1 will be stopped.
If the measured value on analog input 1is below the alarm level "Min.
Alarm" an alarm is generated and the automatic dosing process is
stopped. If the measured value on analog input 1is above the alarm
level "Max. Alarm" a warning message is generated and the automatic
dosing process continues.
Control Mode Negative:
(Reg.Crtl. Mode = Neg)
If the measured value on analog input 1is lower than "Setpoint" -
"Deadband" dosing of product 1 will be started.
If the measured value on analog input 1is higher than "Setpoint" dosing
of product 1 will be stopped.
If the measured value on analog input 1is below the alarm level "Min.
Alarm" a warning message is generated and the automatic dosing
process continues. If the measured value on analog input 1is above the
alarm level "Max. Alarm" an alarm is generated and the automatic
dosing process is stopped.
Dosing of product 1 is done in portions defined by the parameters "Dose Time" and "Wait Time". If a dosing process is running, it
will be stopped after "Dose Time". D-Determinator will wait until the end of "Wait Time". If the dosing condition is still valid
(see table above for dosing conditions), dosing will continue.
The consumption of product is monitored via flowmeters if possible else the calculation of the consumption is done via time and
the calculated product flow rates of the equipment. The consumption counters are updated each time the product is dosed.
If the Setpoint cannot be reached within the dosing time, an alarm is generated and the automatic dosing process is stopped until
the process operator acknowledges the alarm by hitting the ENTER key.
Volume fix + secondary Control
A Volume Fix mode is dosing an amount of product per time independent of any measured values. Two parameters are necessary:
volume and interval time. When an interval starts, the main dosing process is started. If the set amount of product has been dosed
within the interval time, the dosing is stopped until the end of the interval time. Then at the next interval the dosing process is
started, again. As a supporting feature, the measured value is used to control the action of D-Determinator.
The consumption of product is monitored via flowmeters if possible else the calculation of the consumption is done via time and
the calculated product flow rates of the equipment. The consumption counters are updated each time the product is dosed.
D-Determinator (Software Version 1.21) 12/2002 FB5110INTissB
Page 42
As a supporting feature, the measured value is used to control the action of D-Determinator. Depending on the selected Regulator
Control mode the following happens:
Reg.Crtl. Mode = Pos.: If the measured value on analog input 1is below the alarm level "Min. Alarm" an alarm is released and
the automatic dosing process is stopped. If the measured value is above the alarm level "Max. Alarm" a
warning message is released and the automatic dosing process continues. The warning message will
remain on the screen until the process operator acknowledges it by hitting the ENTER key.
Reg.Crtl. Mode =neg.: If the measured value on analog input 1is below the alarm level "Min. Alarm" a warning message is
released and the automatic dosing process continues. If the measured value is above the alarm level
"Max. Alarm." an alarm is released and the automatic dosing process is stopped. The warning message
will remain on the screen until the process operator acknowledges it by hitting the ENTER key.
Volume fix
A Volume Fix mode is dosing an amount of product per time independent of any measured values. Two parameters are necessary:
volume and interval time. When an interval starts, a dosing process is started. If the set amount of product has been dosed, the
dosing is stopped until the end of the interval time. Then during the next interval the dosing process is started, again.
The consumption of product is controlled via flowmeter if possible else the calculation of the consumption is done via time and the
set product flow rates of the equipment.
Dependant
In dependant mode, the amount of product 2 or 3 is set in relationship to product 1. If, for example, a value of 0,200 is entered for
the relationship, the equipment will dose, on average, 20% of the mass of his product compared to the mass of product 1. This
amount is based on the consumption values not on simultaneous ratio feeding.
To prevent the equipment being started too often, a minimum volume is defined. If the need for product 2/3 exceeds this limit, a
dosing process is started dosing the complete necessary amount of product.
The consumption of product is monitored via flowmeters if possible; if not the calculation of the consumption is done via time and
the calculated product flow rate of the equipment.
Dosing an Initial Charge/ Start-Up
During Initial Charge/ Start-Up a preset volume is dosed, it is possible to dose the initial charge or the start-up charge with all
dosing equipment (1-4). The equipment will run at maximum flowrate to perform the initial charge or the start-up charge as
quickly as possible. Equipment 4 is a special case because it will dose the main product with a larger pump if configured.
To start an Initial Charge or a Start-Up dosing, externally, two input signals (Release Trigger plus Initial Charge or Release
Trigger plus Start-Up) are necessary. Once an Initial Charge or Start-Up is started externally the D-Determinator will dose the
entire amount configured unless the Release Trigger signal is lost.
If an Initial Charge or a Start-Up dosing is running, the one of following screens will appear in the menu.
Conduct. Init.Ch

The volumes to be dosed and the selected equipment have to be set in Configuration Mode. Each piece of equipment (1-4) that
have an initial charge or start-up amount configured will dose that product when one of these modes are selected, either through the
screen and operator selection or by an external trigger.
In these modes the warning level is deactivated (either Min. Alarm" or "Max. Alarm" depending on Control Mode) only the Alarm
level will be active (see chapter "Equipment Configuration").
During Initial Charge, equipment 4 is used instead of equipment 1 (if this equipment is configured to be "ON").
If the Operation Mode is "Analog Regulator" these modes are stopped once the setpoint is reached, D-Determinator will continue
in automatic mode. In this case a warning message will be released.
If the Operation Mode is "Volume fix + 2nd Control" these modes are stopped once the alarm level is reached. In this case an
alarm message will be released and the process will be stopped.
If the Operation Mode is "Volume fix " no alarm level are activate.
Initial Charge/ Start-Up Mode are finished once the defined volumes of all products have been dosed.
Manual dosing
During Manual Mode a preset volume is dosed, it is possible to choose between Equipment 1, 2 and 3. The equipment will run at
maximum flowrate to deliver the desired amount of product as quickly as possible. The dosed volume is set while starting Manual
Mode operation.

Operation as a "Slave"
If a D-Determinator is used as Slave the following differences in operation will occur:
The sensor input 1 is of the same type as defined at the Master.
The equipment will always be "permanent" as valves will be controlled and not dosing pumps.
The valves 1-4 corresponding to equipment 1-4 have to be connected to the power outputs, the stroke outputs will be inactive.
Level alarm, data of equipment and flow sensor inputs will not be used, these are only necessary for the Master. If the network
address of a D-Determinator is set to a Slave-Address, these items will be skipped during configuration.
During Initial Charge output 4 (equipment 4 = valve 4) will be activated. This allows to use a separate valve for dosing the
Initial Charge. If the same valve (valve 1) is used to control the flow of product 1 during normal operation and during Initial
Charge, output 4 has to connected to output 1
Network operation
If multiple D-Determinators are coupled together using the CAN-Bus network some rules of operation are necessary:
Every slave will send a request of product to its Master if product is needed. The Master will do the same (internally).
The unit to be serviced first is the unit that sends the first request (FIFO - principle: first in - first out).
During Wait Time (Regulator Mode) another unit may be serviced.
An Initial Charge or a Start-Up dosing may not be interrupted by another unit.

Troubleshooting
Alarms and Warnings
There are two types of messages: Alarms and Warnings.
Alarm: If a condition in the process triggers an alarm the dosing process will be stopped until the alarm is acknowledged by
pressing the ENTER-key.
Warning: If a warning message is generated the D-Determinator continues with normal operation. The warning message will
stay on the display until it is acknowledged by pressing the ENTER-key
An alarm / warning will always be signaled in the top line of the display. If possible, the bottom line will continue to show the
measured values of both analog inputs.
The last alarm or warning that occurred will be displayed. If an alarm is activated, no warning message will override this display.
