1.3 Appearance And Structure


The condenser consists of heat exchanger, fan, fan speed controller and pressure sensor. The heat exchanger is
inside the condenser, other components are shown in Figure 1-2. Note that if the side copper pipes are collided, they
will be deformed easily to result in the system leakage. So you must use a correct method to move the condenser.
For detailed movement, refer to Chapter 2 Installation in Liebert.PEX Condenser User Manual and Appendix 3

2.3.4 Configuration Parameters


The condenser uses the fan speed controller to control the fan full load voltage according to the designed loads of all
models and decrease the fan noise in the condition of meeting the designed load. The defaulted full load voltage
Vmax percentages at factory of all models are listed in Table 2-10.

This chapter expounds the application of the fan speed controller, including control logic, wiring terminals, pressure
sensor selection, Human-Machine Interface (HMI), HMI operation, protection function and alarm function.

Control logic figure

The control logic is described as follows:


z Startup control: if the startup condensing pressure is within the set range (Pset, Pset + Pband), the fan speed
controller will output Vx; if the startup condensing pressure exceeds the set range (Pset, Pset + Pband), the fan
speed controller will output Vmax.
z Operation control: the control logic during operation follows A -> B -> C -> D -> E -> F -> C -> B -> A -> G -> H ->
I. The A point is the corresponding point of condensing pressure from B to G.
z Shut down control: when the condensing pressure is less than Poff ( = Pset - 1), the fan speed controller stops
supplying power with fan.
z Max. output voltage control: when the condensing pressure exceeds Pv100 ( = Pset + Pband + 5), the fan speed
controller supplies 100% input voltage Vin with fan; when the condensing pressure is down to Pvmax ( = Pv100 - 2),
the fan speed controller supplies the max. setting voltage Vmax with fan.

Note

1. The boosting pressure process of the system follows the control logic of black line: G -> A -> B -> C -> D -> E and the
releasing pressure process follows the control logic of red line: E -> F -> C -> B -> A -> G -> H -> I. The difference between the
two processes is the return difference: Pv100 - Pvmax = 2bar and Pset - Poff = 1bar.
2. Pv100 - (Pset + Pband) = 5bar.
The definitions, default values and setting ranges of the relative configuration parameters about the control logic are
listed in Table 3-1.

Note

1. The configured fan number must be the actual fan number, otherwise the alarm will be generated.
2. The configured pressure sensor type must be the same as the used type, otherwise the pressure will not be measured accurately
and the deviation will be increased during the control process.

Note

1. If the phase sequence of three-phase AC input (L1, L2 and L3) is connected reversely, the fan speed controller will generate
the phase loss alarm A00 and cannot supply the AC output.
2. If the phase sequence of three-phase AC output (U, V and W) is connected reversely, the fan will operate in reverse.
3. If he over temperature detecting terminals (J7, J10) of fan1 and 2, and the compressor detecting terminal (J6) are not connected,
you can short them by short cables to make sure the fan speed controller can operate normally. If the terminals are disconnected,
the fan speed controller cannot supply the AC output.

3.3 HMI
The fan speed controller can realize the HMI function through indicators, RS232 serial communication port, keys and
LCD.
Indicators
There are three indicators (see Figure 3-2) on the fan speed controller board. See Table 3-3 for the functions of
indicators.

3.5 Protection Function


The fan speed controller can provide the protection function according to the acquired information. The detailed
protection functions are as follows:
z Compressor operation synchronization protection
When the compressor operates normally, the fan speed controller can provide the output control according to the
condensing pressure measured value. Otherwise, the fan power supply will be shut off.
z Fan power protection 1
Before starting the fan power output, if the AC abnormal frequency alarm (the normal range of AC frequency is 45Hz
~ 65Hz) is detected, the fan power output will be stopped until the AC frequency is back to be normal.
z Fan power protection 2
If fan over temperature, phase loss alarm and SCR over temperature are generated during single fan configuration,
the fan power output will be stopped until there are not the alarms. When the temperature is up to 100C, the SCR
cuts the power from the fan; when the temperature is down to 70C, the power to fan is restored.
z Fan power protection 3
When the single fan is configured, if the interval time between two consecutive over temperature alarms of fan 1 is
less than 24 hours, the power of fan contactor coil will be cut off and the fan power output will be stopped. After the
maintenance personnel resolve the faulty and restart the fan speed controller, the fan re-works.
When the double fans are configured, if the interval time between two consecutive over temperature alarms of both
fan 1 and fan 2 is less than 24 hours, the power of fan contactor coil will be cut off and the fan power output will be
stopped. After the maintenance personnel resolve the faulty and restart the fan speed controller, the fans re-work.

3.6 Alarm Protection


The fan speed controller can handle the corresponding alarms according to the acquired alarm information. The
detailed alarms include:
1. Phase loss alarm
4. Fan 2 over temperature,
7. SCR temperature sensor failure

2. SCR over temperature


5. Pressure sensor failure
8. Abnormal frequency

See Figure 4-2 for the generating conditions and troubleshooting.

Chapter 4 Maintenance And Troubleshooting


This chapter gives an introduction to the maintenance and troubleshooting of the condenser. You should check the
condenser regularly and solve the problems in time

4.1 Maintenance
Refrigeration system
1. Check that the refrigeration pipes are firmly fixed. The refrigeration pipes shall not shake with the vibration of wall,
earth or equipment frame. Otherwise reinforce the refrigeration pipes with fastening objects.
2. Check that there is no oil on the accessories of all refrigeration pipes, and make sure that the pipes does not leak.
Heat exchanger
1. Clean the fin of heat exchanger regularly.
2. Clean the fin of heat exchanger with compressed air or fin detergent (weakly alkaline) if the condenser airflow is
blocked. The direction of inverse airflow is good when the compressed air is used.
3. Check for damaged fins and maintain them in time.
4. Avoid snow accumulation around the condenser in winter.
Fan
Check that the fan runs normally, check it for problems such as abnormal noise, vibration and bearing failure. If the
fan should be replaced, refer to Table 4-1 for selecting the fan models.

Appendix 1 Condenser Matching Table


Note

1. Seven M4 10 bolts are used to fix the fan speed controller board. The bolt 1 and bolt 2 are used to fix the heat sink.
2. Except for the seven bolts in Table 4-1, other bolts are prohibited to be removed.
3. While installing the fan speed controller board, the bolt 1 and bolt 2, used to fix the heat sink, must be fastened firstly. The heat
sink must cling to the floor of the electrical control box. After installing the heat sink, use the other five bolts to fix the fan speed
controller board.
Pressure sensor
If the standard-configurable pressure sensor fails, follow below to select the model and install.
z Selecting the model of pressure sensor
To make sure the precision of the condensing pressure measured value, the pressure sensor should be selected as
follows:
1. The same fan speed controller must select the same type of pressure sensors.
2. The configuration of pressure sensor type (see Figure 3-9) must be the same as the used type.
3. The current type pressure sensor must meet: 4mA ~ 20mA corresponds to 0 ~ 30bar; the voltage type pressure
sensor must meet: 0.5V ~ 4.5V corresponds to 0 ~ 34bar.
4. Except for the type configuration, all parameters of pressure sensor should be amended by factory to use.
z Installing the pressure sensor
The condenser is configured with current type pressure sensor in factory. If the pressure senor should be replaced,
the current type pressure sensor is recommended. If the voltage pressure sensor has to be used because of especial
condition, refer to the following steps:
1. Remove the current type pressure sensors on J14 and J15 terminals and the jumper caps of the current type
pressure sensors on J17 and J18 terminals.
2. Connect the voltage type pressure sensor to J3 and J4 terminals. For the type configuration of pressure sensor,
refer to Configuration data main menu interface in 3.4 Operation Description Of HMI.

4.2 Troubleshooting
The troubleshooting of the condenser is listed in Table 4-2.
