Parlor Flush Valve Operation –

Flush valves can be operated in the following ways.

  1. Manual input provided by external buttons will allow the flush valve to be operated for a pre programmed duration. The durations are set in the Manual Flush (FL-) mode. First a OFF duration provide a time delay, then the ON duration provides the flush. Both durations can be set from a minimum of 0 seconds to a maximum of 6 minutes 50 seconds in 10 second increments.

Below is a summary of the modes, functions, and acceptable values.

Mode Function Value
Fd1 Set flush valve 1 delay 0 to 6:50
Fd2 Set flush valve 1 duration 0 to 6:50
Fd3 Set flush valve 1 delay 0 to 6:50
Fd4 Set flush valve 1 duration 0 to 6:50
Fd5 Set flush valve 1 delay 0 to 6:50
Fd6 Set flush valve 1 duration 0 to 6:50
Fd7 Set flush valve 1 delay 0 to 6:50
Fd8 Set flush valve 1 duration 0 to 6:50
  1. A lock out time can be set that will disable the inputs to a single flush valve. The lockout time is set in the LO- mode and can be set form 0 hrs and 0 minutes to 11 hours and 50 minutes. A different lock out time can be set for each flush valve.  The output status light will flash quickly while the output is disabled. If you desire to defeat the lockout time, cycle the mode button until back in the OP- mode. This will turn off all active outputs and will reset the lockout times.
  2. An additional 5th input will cause all flush valves to operate in sequence starting with output 1 ending with output 4. Flush times will be based on values entered in the Manual Flush (FL-) mode.
  3. If the Manual Flush (FL-) durations for a flush valve are both set to 0, then the external inputs will cause the valve to operate manually. One push to start the flush and another to stop the flush.
  4. Manual starting of flushing can be initiated by front panel input by selecting the HO- mode and using button [1] and [2].       This is not recommended for daily operation as it requires opening the weather tight enclosure.
  5. Each flush valve can be disabled in the Operate (OP-) mode. If a valve is disabled then it will not operate based on pre programmed start times or from external input. It will operate in the Hand Operate (HO-) mode.
