    (mod. EDR1000NEW) produced in the factory in Porcia (Italy). The EDR1000NEW control system features a single PCB that incorporates the power and display functions and a maximum of 13 LEDs and 5 switches. This PCB can be used with conductimetric condenser models as well as vented dryers.
  • Page 6: General Characteristics

    3 GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS The EDR1000NEW control system consists of a single PCB which incorporates three functions: power, control display. This fitted conductimetric condenser dryers (i.e. those in which the steam is condensed inside the appliance). The PCB is inserted into a plastic casing, which is attached to the rear side of the control panel support.
