VC7900 - WIRING, OPERATIONS
NOTE: The actuator can also be installed at right angles to the
valve body but in this position the latch mechanism will
5. Install the new actuator by reversing the process in (4).
6. Reconnect leadwires or Molex
7. Restore power, and check-out operation.
The manual opener can be manipulated only when in the up
position. The "A" port can be manually opened by firmly pushing
the white manual lever down to midway and in. In this position both
the "A" and "B" ports are open, and with auxiliary switch models the
switch is closed. This "manual open" position may be used for
filling, venting and draining the system, or for opening the valve in
case of power failure. The valve can be restored manually to the
closed position by depressing the white manual lever lightly and
then pulling the lever out. The valve and actuator will return to the
automatic position when power is restored.
NOTE: If the valve is powered open, it cannot be manually
closed, unless actuator is removed.
See figures 6a and 6b for single unit wiring details.
Multiple valves may be connected in parallel to a single controller
and transformer, up to the current rating of the controller and

VC7934 may be installed as a plenum-rated cable model. Where
local codes require conduit , the conduit adapter may be used with
empty 3/8" flexible conduit to provide mechanical protection for the
wiring. All wiring connections must be made in an approved
electrical junction box. Refer to figure 7.

In the VC7900, an electronic circuit compares the voltage of the
feedback potentiometer to the signal voltage. If they are different,
then the circuit closes the appropriate triac and drives the motor in
the direction that will bring the circuit back into balance. In
addition, the standard limit switches maintain the travel to the
normal operating range.
