    Munters Green RTU RX Module Climate Controllers Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 4

Figure 3: Receiver on a Pole

  • When mounting the receiver module and bracket to the outside of a building, make sure to locate the module on the building wall that is facing the transmitter’s antennae. In built up areas this may not be possible but test this location to make sure you obtain acceptable signal quality before mounting the unit.
  •  It is generally best practice to locate the switching devices such as solenoids and relays as close as possible to the receiver module. This will be explained in more detail under the “Connecting the Output Devices to the Radio Receiver Module” section.
  • NOTE!!!
    o Do not mount the receiver module on any structure that is subjected to vibration. E.g. Avoid mounting the receiver module on a valve riser assembly as the riser assembly is subjected to vibration while water flow takes place.
    o Avoid mounting the radio receiver module in a metal or concrete enclosure or structure. Even a metal cage will negatively influence radio signal. It is acceptable to mount the receiver module within a plastic enclosure as shown in Figure 4.
    Munters Green RTU RX Module Climate Controllers Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 5
    Figure 4: Receiver on Plastic
  • Avoid mounting the radio receiver in any location where corrosive gases are present.
  • Do not mount the receiver module underground.
  • Do not mount the receiver module in any location that can become flooded.
  • Avoid mounting the receiver module where it will be subjected to water jet/s. E.g. Do not mount the unit directly next to a sprinkler where the jet of water being emitted by the sprinkler hits the receiver module.
  • Avoid locating the receiver module in dense vegetation and foliage.
  • Make certain acceptable radio reception is achievable when locating a receiver module in the vicinity of high voltage power lines.

2.2 Connecting the Output Devices to the Radio Receiver Module

  • The Green RTU RX radio receiver module is available in two output connection formats.
    o The output plug format as shown in Figure 5 below
    Munters Green RTU RX Module Climate Controllers Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 6
         Figure 5: Plug Format
    o The output wire loom format as shown in Figure 6 below
    Munters Green RTU RX Module Climate Controllers Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 7
    Figure 6: Wire Loom Format
  •  It is advisable to locate the output devices to be switched by the radio receiver module, such as solenoids and relays, as close to the receiver module as is practically possible. These output devices are activated with a short DC pulse signal and long cable/wire run lengths between the output device and the radio receiver module can be problematic (can cause intermittent operation).
  • We do not suggest that you exceed 5m in total cable/wire length between the radio receiver module and the output device to be controlled. Use a wire size of 1.5mm² if you intend to locate the output device/s away from the receiver module up to 5m away.
  • The Green RTU RX radio receiver module uses a two wire 12VDC pulse signal of 60mSec in length. Compatible output devices should be selected to meet this specification and tested properly for reliable use with the radio receiver module. Consult with Munters for a list of approved devices.

2.3 Connecting the Output Devices to the Receiver Module Equipped with the Plug Connection Format

This version of the Green RTU radio receiver module is equipped with a 6 terminal pins and a plug (black and blue) as shown in Figure 7 below.
Munters Green RTU RX Module Climate Controllers Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 8
                      Figure 7: Terminal Pins

Looking from the rear (the mounting slot end) of the radio receiver module the terminals are as follows:

  • Terminal 1 – Common (Black)
  • Terminal 2 – Common (Black)
  • Terminal 3 – Output #1 (Blue)
  • Terminal 4 – Output #2 (Blue)
  • Terminal 5 – Output #3 (Blue)
  • Terminal 6 – Output #4 (Blue)
    Figure 8 below shows two solenoid valves that have wire to the radio receiver modules terminal plug. The green wire (plus) from solenoid valve #1 is wired to the first blue terminal (terminal 3 being the closest blue terminal to the black terminals). The green wire (plus) from solenoid valve #2 is wired to the second blue terminal (terminal 4). The black wires (minus) are wired to the black terminals in no specific order. The two black terminals are the same.
    Munters Green RTU RX Module Climate Controllers Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 9

 Figure 8: Solenoid Valves

Wiring the 3 and 4 output would entail connecting the green wire for the 3rd output device to terminal 5 (blue block) and the green wire for the 4th output device to terminal 6 (blue block). The black wires from both output devices would connect to either terminal 1 or 2 (the black blocks).
Once the wiring of the output devices to the terminal connector has been completed the connector can be plugged into the pins on the base of the radio receiver module as shown in Figure 9 below.

Munters Green RTU RX Module Climate Controllers Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 10

                              Figure 9: Connecting the Pins 

CAUTION We recommend to remove this terminal connector from the radio receiver module once a year and to clean the pins on the module as well as to thoroughly clean the plug. Apply a good quality anti rust inhibitor spray such as silicone before reattaching the connector to the receiver module.

2.4 Connecting the Output Devices to the Receiver Module Equipped with the Output Wire Loom Format

This version of the Green RTU radio receiver module is equipped with a short piece of 6 core cable which is attached on one end to the radio receiver module using a waterproof joint. The other end of the cable has 6 soldered tinted wire ends exposed with ends, ready for attaching to the output devices as shown in Figure 9 below.

Munters Green RTU RX Module Climate Controllers Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 11
 Figure 10: Output Wire Loom Format Wiring

The 6 wires are allocated as follows –

  • Red: Common
  • Black: Common Reserved (Reserved for future use. Remove the temporary heat shrink if you will use this wire)
  • Yellow: Output #1
  • Blue: Output #2 (Reserved for future use. Remove the temporary heat shrink if you will use this wire)
  • Green: Output #3 (Reserved for future use. Remove the temporary heat shrink if you will use this wire)
  • White: Output #4 (Reserved for future use. Remove the temporary heat shrink if you will use this wire)

It is recommended to make a waterproof connection between these wires and the output device wires. This can be achieved by terminating the connections in an additional enclosure or using a waterproof gel type connector such as the sample shown in Figure 11 below.

      Figure 14: Battery Plugged in
  • You will observe that both the Red and the Green LED’s will illuminate together.
  • When the green LED extinguishes, an audible click will be heard from each of the solenoids connected to the receiver module as a reset of each output device takes place. Other output devices do not necessarily omit this audible clicking noise during the resetting procedure.
  • The Red LED will remain on for approximately 2 to 3 minutes after the battery was reconnected.
  • While the Red LED is illuminated and should a radio signal applicable to this receiver module (ID being the same as the transmitted signal), be received by the unit, the green LED will flash briefly.
  • If data that pertains to one or more of the outputs has been received by the module, the output/s will be activated or deactivated dependant on the status requested. At this time the green LED will also flash briefly.
  • The Red LED will extinguish after 2 to 3 minutes to conserve power consumption. No LED’s can be observed after this time.
  • Gently insert the battery along with the wires and connectors into the radio receiver modules battery compartment. Firmly secure the rubber plug into the receiver modules battery compartment making sure that the “D” is facing upwards and that the plug is fully inserted.

2.7 Resetting the Radio Receiver Module

From time to time the system operator may wish to clean a solenoid valve/s or check on the condition of the radio receiver modules battery or simply reset the radio receiver module processor. The best way to achieve this is to reset the radio receiver module which is explained as follows –

  • Open the battery housing on the receiver module by removing the rubber plug from the receiver modules battery compartment (Do not use any sharp instruments to achieve this).
  • Gently extract the battery, battery cable and the programming cable out of the receiver modules battery compartment.
  • Disconnect the battery connectors socket from the receiver modules connector plug.
  • To perform a reset on the receiver module power needs to be fully removed. When the battery is unplugged it could take up to 60 minutes for power in the module to dissipate. To hasten this process it is possible to use a hand held programmer to reset the module however If you do not have a Hand Held Programmer available you will need to perform a manual reset.
  • Bridge out the black wires terminal pin with the green wires terminal socket for about 2 seconds on the receiver module as shown in Figure 15 below.
