SETTING AND CHECKOUT

SETTING
In all models, the differential is subtractive from the
main scale set point. The upper operating point is deter-
mined by the main scale set point, while the lower operat-
ing point is determined by the main scale setting less the
differential setting. The L404F and L604A (with jumper
installed), L,M have spdt switching action. Operating points
are shown in Fig. 10.

L404C,D AND L604L MANUAL RESET MODELS HAVE A SMALL, FIXED

DIFFERENTIAL. THEY CAN BE MANUALLY RESET WHEN THE PRESSURE
FALLS TO THE MAIN SCALE SETPOINT MINUS THE DIFFERENTIAL.
L604M HAS A SMALL, FIXED DIFFERENTIAL OF 3.5 PSI (0.25 kg/cm
2
OR 24.1 kPa.)
Adjust the main scale set point for the desired operating
pressure by turning the main scale adjusting screw (Fig. 11)
on the top of the case until the main scale setting indicator
is at the desired value. On an L404A,B,F with a 5 to 150 psi

(.3 to 10.3 kg/cm
[34 to 1034 kPa]) operating range, or an
L604A, adjust the differential setting by turning the dif-
ferential adjusting screw (Fig. 11) until the differential
setting indicator is at the desired value. L404C,D and
L604L are manual reset models: see the next paragraph.
The L604M has a fixed differential. The scaleplates are
marked psi and kg/cm

main scale setpoint. They will not automatically return to
their former positions. To reset one of these controllers,
wait until the pressure falls to the set point minus the
differential (Fig. 10). Then depress the manual reset lever
(Fig. 11) and release it. The controller will not be reset until
you release the manual reset lever. This prevents the con-
troller from becoming an automatic-reset device if the reset
lever is stuck, held in, or tied down.

CHECKOUT
After the controller has is installed, wired, and set, test it
with the system in operation. First allow the system to
stabilize. Then observe the operation of the controller while
raising and lowering its setpoint. Pressure should increase
when the setpoint is raised and decrease when the set point
is lowered.
Also check the make and break points of the controller.
If they do not agree with a separate, accurately calibrated
pressure gauge, a slight adjustment of the scaleplate(s) may
be necessary.
Use accurate pressure testing equipment when checking
out the controller. Do not rely on inexpensive gauges. The
controllers are carefully calibrated at the factory.
