2 Configuration

This manuals contains the information needed for a basic setup. For more detailed information go to Munters’ on-line manual library. This document lists the basic steps to be done when installing Munters Green RTU Units. For complete information on the products and their installation, refer to the following documents:

  • Serial Transmitter Module Installation Manual (P/N 116809)
  • Radio Repeater Module Installation Manual (P/N 116810)
  • RTU RX Module Installation Manual (P/N 116812)
  • G5 RX Module Programming Manual (P/N 116811)
2.1 Introduction

The following document describes how to set up the Serial Transmitter Module. In doing so, you can define exactly how the Green Field Controller manages all valves.

Figure 5: Kit and RTU Modules Components (see the following table)

Figure 6: Spare Parts (see the following table)

2.2 Controller — Transmitter Setup
  • Controller Setup
  • Wiring

Observe the following points when setting up the Green Field Controller and G5 Transmitter.

  • The Green Field Controller must have a License Card.

  • The Controller can have 24VAC local relays (for pumps, fertigation, filters, etc.). Figure 8 shows 16 local 24VAC outputs; remote outputs start from relay 17.

2.2.2 WIRING
  • Connect the Controller to the Transmitter as shown in the following diagram.
  • Figure 13 displays
  • The only connection that requires wiring is the Green Field Communication Card. Wire this card to the RJ-45 Male cable as shown in Figure 10.

  • Use the PoE device to connect the RJ45 cables as detailed below:

  • LAN: RJ45 cable from the Green Field Controller
  • PoE: RJ45 cable to the Transmitter
  • 12 VDC: Power cable

CAUTIONDisconnecting the power supply means that wireless connectivity ceases! Ensure that the 12VDC power cable is secured and cannot be disconnected while the system is operating!

  • Connect the antenna cable (Figure 13).
2.3 Setting up the G5 Transmitter
  • Mounting the Transmitter
  • Defining the Dipswitches
  • Installing and mounting the unit: Refer to the Serial Transmitter Module Installation Guide.

2.4 Setting Up the Green RTU
  • Mounting the Green RTU
  • Programing
  • Refer to the RTU RX Module Installation Manual for detailed instructions on mounting and powering the unit and on connecting it to output devices.
  • Refer to the G5 RX Module Programming Manual for detailed instructions on using the programmer.

Using the Hand Held Programmer, define the Green RTU communication parameters.

  1. Connect the Programmer to the Green RTU.
  2. Press the Red Button on the DB9 cover for two seconds.
  3. Define:
    • NW: Communication wireless protocol (read only)
    • CO1: This is the channel o I00:XXX is the system ID, in which X must match the transmitter System ID.
    • M is the number of receiver outputs. In the above figure, the receiver controls four outputs.
    • V:00X: This number defines which outputs are activated. Each receiver controls four consecutive outputs. X is the number of the first valve in the series. For example, if X is 9, the GTU RX controls valves 9, 10, 11, and 12.
2.5 Green Field Controller Set Up
  • Communication Protocol
  • Defining Remote Relays

The following procedure details how to define the Green Field Controller communication protocol.

  1. On the Green Field screen, go to Setup > System Setup.
  2. Scroll down to Communication.
  3. Define the Remote Unit Type as SN/SF NET.  NOTE All remote units connected to the Green Field Controller must use be connected via radio.
  4. Define the relevant parameters (baud rate).
  5. Apply power to both units. After ten seconds, “Host Unit Error” should appear on the Green Field Controller screen.
  1. On the Green Field screen, go to Installation > Device Layout.
  2. Relays 17 ­ 20 are remote unit relays. Define them as valves.
  3. Repeat for each Green RTU.
2.6 Trouble Shooting and Testing

Problem: Valve definition does not match dipswitch definition.

Explanation: Dipswitches define the maximum number of valves. If the Hand Held Programmer defines valves about this range, an error is recorded.

For exampleDipswitches 2.1, 2.2, and 2.3 are in the Off position; this enables up to 32 valves. If the Programmer defines V:032, valve 32 is turned on, but valves 33, 34, and 35 are errors.

3 Warranty

Warranty and technical assistanceMunters products are designed and built to provide reliable and satisfactory performance but cannot be guaranteed free of faults; although they are reliable products they can develop unforeseeable defects and the user must take this into account and arrange adequate emergency or alarm systems if failure to operate could cause damage to the articles for which the Munters plant was required: if this is not done, the user is fully responsible for the damage which they could suffer.

Munters extends this limited warranty to the first purchaser and guarantees its products to be free from defects originating in manufacture or materials for one year from the date of delivery, provided that suitable transport, storage, installation and maintenance terms are complied with. The warranty does not apply if the products have been repaired without express authorisation from Munters, or repaired in such a way that, in Munters’ judgement, their performance and reliability have been impaired, or incorrectly installed, or subjected to improper use. The user accepts total responsibility for incorrect use of the products.

The warranty on products from outside suppliers fitted to the Green RTU units, (for example cables, power supplies, etc.) is limited to the conditions stated by the supplier: all claims must be made in writing within eight days of the discovery of the defect and within 12 months of the delivery of the defective product. Munters has thirty days from the date of receipt in which to take action, and has the right to examine the product at the customer’s premises or at its own plant (carriage cost to be borne by the customer).

Munters at its sole discretion has the option of replacing or repairing, free of charge, products which it considers defective, and will arrange for their despatch back to the customer carriage paid. In the case of faulty parts of small commercial value which are widely available (such as bolts, etc.) for urgent despatch, where the cost of carriage would exceed the value of the parts, Munters may authorise the customer exclusively to purchase the replacement parts locally; Munters will reimburse the value of the product at its cost price.

Munters will not be liable for costs incurred in demounting the defective part, or the time required to travel to site and the associated travel costs. No agent, employee or dealer is authorised to give any further guarantees or to accept any other liability on Munters’ behalf in connection with other Munters products, except in writing with the signature of one of the Company’s Managers.
