UNPACKING AND INSPECTION
When the equipment is received, all items should be carefully checked against the packing list to ensure all cartons have been received. Move units in the normal "up" orientation as indicated by the arrows on each carton. Examine cartons for shipping damage, removing the units from the cartons if necessary. If the unit is damaged, the carrier should make the proper notation on the delivery receipt acknowledging the damage.
CLEAN AIR ACT AMENDMENTS OF 1990 [TITLE VI - SECTION 608(C-1)]
"Effective July 1, 1992, it shall be unlawful for any person, in the course of maintaining, servicing, repairing, or disposing of an appliance or industrial process refrigeration, to knowingly vent or otherwise knowingly release or dispose of any Class I* or Class II** substance used as a refrigerant in such appliance (or industrial process refrigeration) in a manner which permits such substance to enter the environment. De minimis releases associated with good faith attempts to recapture and recycle or safely dispose of any such substances shall not be subject to the prohibition set forth in the proceeding sentence."
*Class I substances include CFC-12 **Class II substances include HCFC-22
HOW IT WORKS:
Your self contained air conditioner consists of four main components and a refrigerant gas circulating through the system. The BLOWER draws warm interior air across the fins on the EVAPORATOR where the heat from the air is transferred to the refrigerant in the evaporator coil. As the refrigerant evaporates from a liquid into a gas it absorbs the heat from the warm air. The COMPRESSOR then compresses the refrigerant gas and pumps it through the outer tube in the CONDENSER COIL. The heat from the refrigerant is exchanged to the condenser and discharged out of the dome. The liquid refrigerant is then passed through the EVAPORATOR COIL and the cycle repeats. Removing heat from the interior dome air lowers its temperature. The cooled air is blown out the supply air grille on the unit.
Installation and servicing of this system can be hazardous due to system pressure and electrical components. When working on this equipment, always observe precautions described in the literature, tags and labels attached to the unit. Follow all safety codes. Wear safety glasses and work gloves and place a fire extinguisher close to the work area. The following is a summary of safety considerations:
ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD. DISCONNECT VOLTAGE AT MAIN PANEL OR POWER SOURCE BEFORE OPENING ANY COVER. FAILURE TO COMPLY MAY RESULT IN INJURY OR DEATH.
THIS COMPONENT DOES NOT MEET FEDERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR IGNITION PROTECTION. DO NOT INSTALL IN SPACES CONTAINING GASOLINE ENGINES, TANKS, LPG/CPG CYLINDERS, REGULATORS, VALVES OR FUEL LINE FITTINGS. FAILURE TO COMPLY MAY RESULT IN INJURY OR DEATH
THIS COMPONENT IS CHARGED WITH HYDROCHLOROFLUOROCARBON (HCFC) REFRIGERANT R22. EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 1992 IT SHALL BE UNLAWFUL FOR ANY PERSON TO KNOWINGLY VENT OR OTHERWISE KNOWINGLY RELEASE ANY CLASS 1 (CFC) OR CLASS 2 (HCFC) SUBSTANCE AS A REFRIGERANT IN A MANNER WHICH PERMITS SUCH SUBSTANCE TO ENTER THE ATMOSPHERE PER THE CLEAN AIR ACT OF 1990. PUBLIC LAW 101-549 TITLE IV SECTION 608-C. FAILURE TO COMPLY MAY RESULT IN SEVERE PENALTIES, INCLUDING FINES AND IMPRISONMENT.
TO MINIMIZE THE HAZARD OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK AND PERSONAL INJURY, THIS COMPONENT MUST BE EFFECTIVELY GROUNDED. REFER TO THE INSTALLATION GUIDELINES FOR FURTHER INFORMATION.
All RADOME units with PASSPORT II have a terminal strip on the circuit board mounted in the electric box. Remove electric box panel to access circuit board (see diagram). The terminal strip is labeled for proper connections of the electrical supply and ground wires (see wiring diagram in drawing appendix). The correct size circuit breaker should be used to protect the system as specified on the a/c unit's data plate label. All connections shall be made with solderless terminals. Turn off a/c power supply circuit breaker before opening electric box. Each a/c unit installed requires its own dedicated circuit breaker.
Turn on the A/C circuit breaker.
Turn the system on by pressing the POWER button.
Set the temperature (set point) to 85ºF by using the UP or DOWN buttons.
Verify that there is steady airflow out of the supply air grille.
If the unit does not appear to be operating properly, refer to troubleshooting guidelines.
Note: Do not turn the unit off and immediately turn it back on. Allow at least 30 seconds for refrigerant pressure equalization.
POWER BUTTON: Press and release to turn unit on and off.
NOTE: To "press and release" a button, press and hold for one second and then release.
FAN BUTTON: NOT USED ON RADOME A/C.
UP & DOWN BUTTONS: Press and hold either button until desired temperature (set point) is displayed. Press either button momentarily to show current set point. Radome a/c set point is 85ºF.
COOL LED: Lights when the compressor is running in cool mode or in automatic mode while cooling.
FAN LED: NOT USED ON RADOME A/C.
HEAT LED: NOT USED ON RADOME A/C.
DISPLAY WINDOW: Shows current temperature. Also used in viewing and setting program parameters.
AIR SENSOR: Dome temperature is detected by the face plate air sensor, located in the bottom edge of the display.
BLANK DISPLAY FOR NIGHT TIME OPERATION: Press the FAN and DOWN buttons simultaneously to blank the display for night time operation. The appropriate LEDs will remain lit during cooling and heating. When the desired temperature has been achieved, the middle segment of the display window will remain lit to indicate that the system is on. Press any button to return to normal display mode.
COOL ONLY MODE: When the Passport II is configured for cool only mode, only cooling systems will be operated as required.
HEAT ONLY MODE: NOT USED ON RADOME A/C.
AUTOMATIC MODE: NOT USED ON RADOME A/C.
HUMIDITY MODE: NOT USED ON RADOME A/C.
AUTOMATIC FAN MODE: NOT USED ON RADOME A/C.
MANUAL FAN MODE: NOT USED ON RADOME A/C.
CIRCULATION MODE (FAN ONLY): NOT USED ON RADOME A/C.
The program mode is used to adjust operating parameters to tailor the system for efficient operation and to allow for user flexibility. Installation variables such as ducting, sensor location and system layout effect the operation of the overall system. Custom programing allows the system to operate as efficiently as possible in any given installation.
TO ENTER PROGRAM MODE: With the system off, press and hold the POWER button for five seconds until the letter "U" appears in the display window. Release the button and the first parameter's setting appears followed by "U 1".
TO UNLOCK PROGRAM MODE: After entering the program mode, simultaneously press and release the POWER and DOWN buttons.
TO SELECT PROGRAM PARAMETER: Press and hold the FAN button to scroll through the parameters indicated by the program number. Programs are described in the following table.
TO CHANGE THE PROGRAM PARAMETER: Use the UP and DOWN buttons to select data or set the desired limits. The range of parameter settings is listed in the following table.
TO RESET DEFAULT SETTINGS: With the system off, press and hold the POWER button for ten seconds until the software version number (A##) appears in the display window.
TO LOCK NEW DEFAULT SETTINGS: Once the desired program changes have been made and before exiting the program mode, simultaneously press and release the UP and DOWN buttons. Locking new defaults will render the factory defaults obsolete. Make note of the new defaults in the following chart for future reference.
TO EXIT PROGRAM MODE: Press the POWER button or press no button for sixty seconds. The software version number is displayed for one second prior to exiting the program mode.
U 1 OPERATING MODE: The operating mode is used to select heating, cooling, or automatic modes. Zero (0) selects automatic mode, one (1) selects cooling mode and two (2) selects heating mode. The Radome a/c should be programmed for cooling mode (1).
U 2 HIGH FAN SPEED LIMIT: N/A
U 3 LOW FAN SPEED LIMIT: N/A
