OVERVIEW
The Model T2310 and T2320 Series are microprocessor based
Pulse-Jet Bag House Dust Collector Controllers. Their purpose is
to monitor the differential pressure across the dust collectors bag
assembly. If the differential pressure exceeds the high-pressure set
point, the controller will initiate a cleaning cycle.
During a cleaning cycle, the controller pulses the solenoids connected to its outputs sequentially. The solenoids in turn, will pulse
high-pressure air to the filter compartments in the dust collector.
The high-pressure air blast is used to clean the filters. The pulsing
of the solenoids will continue until the differential pressure drops
below the low-pressure setpoint. At this time the solenoids will stop
firing.
The controller keeps track of the last output fired. When the
pressure rises above the high-pressure set point again, it will start
the cleaning cycle with the next output to fire.
When the controller is in the auto learning mode, it has the ability
to learn which outputs have solenoids connected to them. If the
controller does not sense a solenoid connected to an output, it will
skip over that output.

NOTE: To aid in installation, refer to the corresponding wiring diagram.

Connect this unit to the correct power source, which is listed


on the nameplate. Do not connect this unit to a "converter" or
"inverter" type power source. This unit should be installed on
its own 15-amp circuit. Do not connect this unit to a power
source that is subjected to large switched loads, such as, electric
motors, compressors, electric tools, etc.
WARNING: MAKE SURE THAT THE CIRCUIT THAT YOU ARE
WORKING WITH, IS "TURNED OFF", BEFORE YOU MAKE
THESE CONNECTIONS. SERIOUS INJURY MAY RESULT IF YOU
DO NOT TAKE THE PROPER SAFETY PRECAUTIONS.
On 120 volt models connect the "hot" or "high side" of the
incoming power source to "L1" on the terminal strip. Connect
the "return" to "L2" on the terminal strip.
On 220-volt models, connect one side of the 220-volt line to L1
and connect the other side of the 220-volt line to L2.
Connect the solenoid air valves to the terminal strip. These are
labeled with the word "OUTPUTS" and they are numbered 1
through 10 for the T2310 unit and 1 through 20 for the T2320
unit. You can connect more than one solenoid on each output,
as long as you do not exceed the 200VA (Watt) rating on each
output.
The return wires "commons" from the solenoids will return to
the "SOL COM" connection on the terminal strip.

3.0 ALARM INPUT CONNECTION


3.1 T2310 Models:
There are three general "ALARM INPUT" connections on the
DNC-T2310-A10 / A220 models and one general "ALARM

ALARM INPUTS #1,2, OR 3. SEVERE DAMAGE TO THE UNIT
WILL OCCUR.
"ALARM AUX INPUT #4" is a dual-purpose input. It can
be used as a general alarm input or as the input for the
"EXPANDED MODE" feature, which is described in Expanded
Mode Section. As an alarm input, it requires a switched line
voltage input, 120VAC 50/60 Hz source for the -A10 and -B10
models and 220VAC 50/60 Hz source for the -A220 and -B220
models.
CAUTION: DO NOT APPLY ANY OTHER VOLTAGE EXCEPT
AS SPECIFIED ABOVE, TO THIS INPUT. DAMAGE TO THE
CONTROLLER WILL OCCUR.

5.2 BYPASS MODE:

4.0 ALARM OUTPUT CONNECTION


The "ALARM OUTPUT" connection is used to indicate to a
remote location that an alarm has occurred. All alarms that are
generated by the controller, including ALARM INPUTS #1, 2,
and 3, will activate this output.
This output is a set of "normally open" relay contacts. It is
capable of switching 3 amps at 120/240 VAC. When the controller has an alarm condition, the contacts will close.
The AUX INPUT #4 only controls the AUX OUTPUT #4 on the
T2320 models only. No other alarms will activate this output.
The relay contacts have the same rating as the output for
alarms #1, 2, and 3. A red LED located next to the alarm output
will light when the relay contacts are closed.
It is recommended that you do not run this wiring in conductor
cabling raceways, which have high voltage or high current
conductors. It is also recommended that you use a twisted pair
wire combination for this connection.

5.0 BYPASS/CYCLE DOWN INPUT CONNECTION


5.1 CYCLE DOWN MODE:
The Cycle Down mode allows the user to connect an auxiliary
set of contacts from the ventilation fan in the dust collector to
the Bypass/Cycle Down Input of the Intelligent controller in
order to clean the filters off-line when the fan shuts down.
If the Cycle Down mode is enabled, normal operation of the
controller occurs when the Bypass/Cycle Down Input is shorted; opening the Bypass/Cycle Down Input will begin a "POWER
CYCLE DELAY" time and will inhibit any cleaning cycles due
to the differential pressure. The display will alternate the words
"POWER", "CYCLE", "DELAY" and "P =XX.X".
At the end of this delay, the unit will cycle through all the
selected outputs as determined by the number of cycles selected with the "NO_ CYL XX" programming menu item, beginning
at output number 1. If the unit is being used in expanded
mode, the cleaning cycle of the Cycle Down mode will start
on the external board. When the Bypass/Cycle Down Input is
closed, the unit shall resume normal operation.

T2310 / T2320 Operation Manual

Fax

Page 10

If the Bypass/Cycle Down Input is shorted with the Cycle Down


mode disabled, a cleaning cycle shall be initiated regardless of
the value of the sensed pressure and will continue until the
circuit is opened. Once the input is opened the cleaning cycle
will either stop or continue based on the value of the sensed
pressure as previously defined.
CAUTION: DO NOT APPLY ANY TYPE OF LIVE POWER TO
THIS BYPASS/CYCLE DOWN INPUT. SEVERE DAMAGE TO THE
UNIT WILL OCCUR.
NOTE: The "ALARM INPUTS", "ALARM OUTPUT", and "BYPASS/CYCLE
DOWN INPUT" do not need to be connected for the operation of the
controller. These connections are optional.

6.0 PRESSURE CONNECTIONS


The controller is equipped with a metal manifold, which is used
to make the differential pressure connections. The manifold is
tapped for 1/8-27 NPT, female pipe fitting.
It is recommended that the tubing be run through a bulkhead
fitting on the NEMA enclosure. This will provide a seal to prevent moisture, dust and particulates from entering the enclosure.
Connect the "HIGH SIDE" or dirty air pressure connection
to the inlet of the dust collector. Do not make sharp bends
or kink the tubing when installing. Follow the manufacturers'
installation instructions for the placement of the input pressure
tubing.
CAUTION: THE MAXIMUM PRESSURE THAT CAN BE APPLIED
TO THE PRESSURE INPUTS IS 10 PSI. ANY GREATER
APPLIED PRESSURE, EVEN MOMENTARILY, WILL DAMAGE
THE PRESSURE SENSOR.
Connect the "LOW SIDE" or clean air pressure connection
to the outlet of the dust collector. Do not make sharp bends
or kink the tubing when installing. Follow the manufacturers'
installation instructions for the placement of the output pressure tubing.

There is a plus (+) and minus (-) connection for this output.
Make sure that you observe the polarities when you make the
connections to your equipment.

If the display does not show a message after the application of


power, check the following:
Check the wiring from the circuit breaker to L1 and L2 on the

controller.
Check the fuse on the controller. A blown fuse on the controller
may indicate a problem with the solenoid outputs. Recheck the
connections to the solenoids.
A short in the solenoid wiring or a short in a solenoid itself may
not cause the fuse to blow during setup of the controller. If there
is a problem with an output, the fuse may blow during the auto
configuration of the outputs or during the first cleaning cycle.
Verify that the correct circuit breaker was turned on.

After the application of power to a new controller, the word


"SETUP" should be on the display. The controller is shipped
in this mode so that all the programmable parameters are
reviewed before the system is placed in operation.
If you see the message "P =xx.x", which is the current differential pressure, this may indicate that the unit has been
previously configured. If you do not have the "SETUP" mode
message and you want to reset the controller to this mode refer
to the section for Reloading Factory Defaults for instructions.

"PROG IDC" - Program selection for setting the T2310/T2320
operating parameters
With "PROG IDC" displayed, press either VALUE button to
enter the "PROG IDC" menu. The following settings are displayed and adjusted in the following order.
Press the down ITEM button to step down through the system
parameter's settings. Use the up and down Value buttons to
revise the particular parameter's setting.
"OUTPUT= A / M" - Output Configuration - Auto or Manual
Press either VALUE button to toggle between Auto and Manual
modes.
Auto Mode
While A is displayed, press the "Output Step" button to start
an automatic output sensing routine. During output sensing
every output will be activated starting with 1 and ending with
10 on the T2310 model and 20 on the T2320 model. During
output activation, the Controller will monitor output current to
determine continuity with the output load (solenoid). Detected
loads will be recorded and a one-second delay (off) will be initiated before the next output is activated. If a load is not detected
the Controller will record that condition and immediately activate the next output. During output sensing the display shall
indicate "AUTO xx". "xx" indicates the number of the output
being tested. Upon completion of output sensing, the" PROG
IDC" submenu shall advance to the next programmable parameter. With the output configuration set to Auto, during a cleaning cycle the controller shall automatically bypass those outputs that were not sensed as being connected to loads during
the sensing routine.

If the Manual Mode is selected press the Down ITEM button.


Using the Up and Down VALUE buttons set the value "xx"
to the last output desired for activation. If the value "xx" is
incremented greater than 10 on the T2310 model, or 20 on
the T2320 model, the display shall indicate "EXP" and the
Expanded mode shall be selected.
If the value of the last output is set to "0" the controller
shall reload all the factory default settings and exit out of the
Program Mode (see section 10.0).
"CYL DN x" - Enables or disables the Bypass/Cycle Down Input
Either VALUE button toggles x = Y(es) or N(o).
If x = Y the cycle down feature shall be enabled and the Bypass
output shall be disabled.
If x = N the cycle down feature shall be disabled and the Bypass
output shall be enabled.
"NO CYL xx" - Number of cleaning cycles
Use the Up and Down VALUE buttons to set "xx" to a value
of 2 to 15 cleaning cycles. One cleaning cycle represents a
completed activation of all the enabled outputs. If "CYL DN x"
is disabled (x=N) the setting of xx shall be disregarded.
LO P=x.xx" - Low P setpoint
Use the Up and Down VALUE buttons to set "xx" to a P of .5 to
15.0 inches WC. This setpoint works in conjunction with "HI P"
as explained next. "LO P" cannot be set higher than "HI P".
"HI P=x.xx" - High P setpoint
Use the Up and Down VALUE buttons to set "xx" to a P of .5 to
15.0 inches WC. When the sensed pressure differential exceeds
this setting a cleaning cycle will start. The cleaning operation
will continue until the sensed differential pressure drops below
the "LO P" setting.and will cease until "HI P" is exceeded again.
"HI P" cannot be set lower than "LO P".
"ON = .xx" - Output Solenoid On Time

Manual Mode
If Manual (M) is selected, the next configuration parameter to
be entered shall be the last output used.
NOTE: In Manual Output Mode the outputs are not monitored for open
and shorted fault conditions, this feature is implemented in the Auto
Output Mode only.

Using the Up and Down VALUE buttons set ".xx" to an output


on time of .01 to .50 sec. Each output shall be sequentially
activated for this time.
"OFF = xxx" - Off Delay Time Between Output Solenoid Activation

Using the Up and Down VALUE buttons set "xxx." to an output


off time of 7 to 999 sec. This is the delay time between output
activation in sequence.
"ALM.H=xx.x" - High P Alarm
Use the Up / Down VALUE buttons to set "xx.x" to a value
between .5 to 15.0 inches WC. Pressure above this setpoint will
activate the alarm contact indicating a fault in the air filter (i.e.:
filter won't clear). "ALM.H" cannot be set lower than "HI P".
"ALM.L=xx.x" - Low P Alarm
Use the Up / Down VALUE buttons to set "xx.x" to a value
between 0.5 to 15.0 inches WC. P below this setpoint shall
activate the alarm contact indicating a fault in the air filter (i.e.:
filter rupture). Setting "xx.x" less than .5 shall disable this alarm
feature. (Display: "ALM.L=---") "ALM.L" cannot be set higher
than "LO P".
"OFFSET=X" - Zero Offset Calibration.
By enabling this feature, the unit is adjusted to compensate for
long term drift of the pressure sensor up to +/- 1.2 inches
of water cumulatively. Using the Value keys, the OFFSET can
be toggled to a "Y" or "N". By pressing the OUTPUT Step
key while "OFFSET=Y" is selected, the unit will calibrate the
differential pressure to 0.0 inches of water and "DONE" will be
displayed. If the unit ever requires more than +/- 1.2 inches
of water of total Offset adjustment, "LIMIT" will be displayed
and would show the difference of the actual "P" value minus
or plus 1.2 inches of water. At this time the unit needs to be
returned for factory calibration.
NOTE: Before this calibration is performed, the unit must be
inspected for plugged tubing or filters and the system differential pressure must be zero.
"EXIT" - Return to the main PROGRAM menu.
Press a VALUE button to exit to the main PROGRAM menu
