SAFETY
ONLY A COMPETENT ELECTRICIAN MAY CARRY
OUT THE ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION / SERVICE

1.1 Attention
The components of the power unit of the frequency
converter are live when Vacon NX is connected to mains
potential. Coming into contact with this voltage is
extremely dangerous and may cause death, or severe
injury. The control unit is isolated from the potential.
The motor terminals U, V, W and the DC-link/brake resistor
terminals / + are live when Vacon NX is connected to
mains, even if the motor is not running.

i4

The control I/O-terminals are isolated from the mains


potential. However, the relay outputs and other I/Oterminals may have a dangerous control voltage present
even when Vacon NX is disconnected from mains.
The frequency converter has a large capacitive leakage
current.
Only spare parts delivered by Vacon must be used.
f4

1.2 Safety instructions


The Vacon NX frequency converter is meant for fixed
installations only.
Do not perform any measurements when the frequency
converter is connected to the mains.
After disconnecting the frequency converter from the mains,
wait until the fan stops and the indicators on the keypad go
out (if no keypad is attached see the indicators on the cover).
Wait 5 more minutes before doing any work on Vacon NX
connections. Do not even open the cover before this time
has expired.
Do not perform any voltage withstand tests on any part of
Vacon NX. There is a certain procedure according to which
the tests shall be performed. Ignoring this procedure may
result in damaged product.
Prior to measurements on the motor or the motor cable,
disconnect the motor cable from the frequency converter.
Do not touch the IC-circuits on the circuit boards. Static
voltage discharge may damage the components.
Before connecting the frequency converter to mains make
sure that theVacon NX front and cable covers are closed.

ALIMAK 34849 - 1/01

Earth = Ground

1.3 Earthing and earth fault protection


The Vacon NX frequency converter must always be earthed
with an earthing conductor connected to the earthing terminal.
The earth fault protection inside the frequency converter
protects only the converter itself against earth faults in the
motor, or the motor cable.
Due to the high capacitive currents present in the frequency
converter, fault current protective switches may not function
properly. If fault current protective switches are used they must
be tested with the drive with earth fault currents that are
possible to arise in fault situations.

1.4 Running the motor


Warning symbols
For your own safety, please pay special attention to the
instructions marked with the following
symbols:

ALIMAK 34850 - 1/01

2. General
The VFC unit feeds a variable frequency to the motor(s) to give
a stepless speed control of the hoist/lift. In order to keep the
same motor torque the VFC also controls the output voltage to
the motor(s). The VFC unit is specially designed for Alimak
hoist/lift application, both hardware and software.
The VFC-unit has special software developed for use with
Alimak hoists and cannot be replaced with another VFC-unit.

2.1 Instructions for installation of VFC-hoist


Following procedure is valid for installation of Alimak VFChoists, which are erected for the first time or erected after being
moved from one site to another. This procedure must be
followed before the hoist can be used either in normal
or Inspection mode.
The hoists can handle all voltages in their range, but certain
measures must be taken.

Procedure:
1. Make sure that you have the relevant parameter list for the
actual lift/hoist. This is supplied within the electrical
documentation.
2. Put the main switch on the M- and B-panel in the off
position.
3. Connect the incoming power to the B-panel.
4. Measure the incoming voltage in the B-panel (after eventual
step-up or stepdown trafo).
5. Check that the connections P1 P8 on the primary side of
the control transformer in the M-panel, (also B-panel if
equipped with control transformer), correspond to the
incoming voltage. If not, adjust the connections according to
the chart on the transformer/electrical drawings.
6. Energize the M-panel by switching on the main switches on
the B- and M-panel.
7. If the VFC unit has been replaced with a spare unit, check
all parameters according to the relevant parameter list. See
section 3 for procedure.

2.2 Instructions for insulation checks of VFC-hoist


2.2.1 Motor cable insulation checks
Disconnect the motor cable from terminals U, V and W of the
frequency converter and from the motor. Measure the insulation
resistance of the motor cable between each phase conductor, as
well as between each phase conductor and the protective ground
conductor. The insulation resistance must be >1M.
2.2.2 Mains cable insulation checks
Disconnect the mains cable from terminals L1, L2 and L3 of the
frequency converter and from the mains. Measure the insulation
resistance of the mains cable between each phase conductor, as
well as between each phase conductor and the protective ground
conductor. The insulation resistance must be >1M.
2.2.3 Motor insulation checks
Disconnect the motor cable from the motor and open the
bridging connections in the motor connection box. Measure the
insulation resistance of each motor winding. The measurement
voltage must be equal with at least the motor nominal voltage,
but not exceed 1000 V. The insulation resistance must be >1M.

3. CONTROL KEYPAD
The control keypad is the link between the Vacon frequency
converter and the user. The Vacon NX control keypad features
an alphanumeric display with seven indicators for the Run
status (RUN,
, READY, STOP, ALARM, FAULT) and
three indicators for the control place (I/O term/ Keypad/BusComm).
There are also three Status Indicator LEDs (green - green - red),
see below.
The control information, i.e. the number of menu, description of
menu or the displayed value and the numeric information are
presented on three text lines.
The frequency converter is operable through the nine pushbuttons of the control keypad.
Furthermore, the buttons serve the purposes of parameter
setting and value monitoring.
The keypad is detachable and isolated from the input line
potential.

3.3.2 Parameter menu (M2)


Parameters are the way of conveying the commands of the user
to the frequency converter. The parameter values can be edited
by entering the Parameter Menu from the Main Menu when the
location indication M2 is visible on the first line of the display.
The value editing procedure is presented in Figure 3-5.
Push the Menu button right once to move into the Parameter
Group Menu (G#). Locate the parameter group desired by using
the Browser buttons and push the Menu button right again to
enter the group and its parameters. Use again the Browser
buttons to find the parameter (P#) you want to edit. From here
you can proceed in two different ways: Pushing the Menu
button right takes you to the edit mode. As a sign of this, the
parameter value starts to blink. You can now change the value
in two different manners:
1 Just set the new desired value with the Browser buttons and
confirm the change with the Enter button. Consequently, the
blinking stops and the new value is visible in the value field.
2 Push the Menu button right once again. Now you will be
able to edit the value digit by digit.
This editing manner may come in handy, when a relatively
greater or smaller value than that on the display is desired.
Confirm the change with the Enter button.

3.3.3 Active faults menu (M4)


The Active faults menu can be entered from the Main menu by
pushing the Menu button right when the location indication M4
is visible on the first line of the keypad display.
When a fault brings the frequency converter to a stop, the
location indication F1, the fault code, a short description of the
fault and the fault type symbol (see Chapter 3.3.4) will appear
on the display. In addition, the indication FAULT or ALARM
(see Figure 3 1 or Chapter 0) is displayed and, in case of a
FAULT, the red led on the keypad starts to blink. If several
faults occur simultaneously, the list of active faults can be
browsed with the Browser buttons.
The memory of active faults can store the maximum of 10 faults
in the order of appearance. The display can be cleared with the
Reset button and the read-out will return to the same state it was
before the fault trip. The fault remains active until it is cleared
with the Reset button, or with a reset signal from the I/O
terminal.
Note ! Remove external Start signal before resetting the fault to
prevent unintentional restart of the drive.

3.3.4 Fault types


In the NX frequency converter, there are four different types of
faults. These types differ from each other on the basis of the
subsequent behaviour of the drive. See Table 3 2.

Figure 3 - 6. Fault display

ALIMAK 34861 - 1/01

A 14

Fault type
symbol

Meaning

A (Alarm)

This type of fault is a sign of an unusual operating


condition. It does not cause the drive to stop, nor
does it require any special actions. The 'A fault'
remains in the display for about 30 seconds.

F (Fault)

An 'F fault' is a kind of fault that makes the drive


stop. Actions need to be taken in order to restart the
drive.

AR (Fault
Autoreset)

If an 'AR fault' occurs the drive will also stop


immediately. The fault is reset automatically and the
drive tries to restart the motor. Finally, if the restart is
not successful, a fault trip (FT, see below) occurs.

FT (Fault Trip)

If the drive is unable to restart the motor after an AR


fault an FT fault occurs. The effect of the 'FT fault' is
basically the same as that of the F fault: the drive is
stopped.

Table 3 - 2. Fault types

3.3.5 Fault codes


The fault codes, their causes and correcting actions are
presented in the table last in this manual.
3.3.6 Fault time data record
When a fault occurs the information described above in 3.3.3 is
displayed. By pushing the Menu button right here you will enter
the Fault time data record menu indicated by T.1 T.13. In this
menu, some selected important data valid at the time of the fault
are recorded. This feature is intended to help the user or the
service person to determine the cause of fault.

The Fault history menu can be entered from the Main menu by
pushing the Menu button right when the location indication M5
is visible on the first line of the keypad display.
All faults are stored in the Fault history menu in which you can
browse through them using the Browser buttons. Additionally,
the Fault time data record pages (see Chapter 3.3.6) are
accessible at each fault. You can return to the previous menu
anytime by pushing the Menu button left.
The memory of the frequency converter can store a maximum
of 30 faults in the order of appearance. The number of faults
currently in the fault history is shown on the value line of the
main page (H1 H#). The order of the faults is indicated by the
location indication in the upper left corner of the display. The
latest fault carries the indication F5.1, the second latest F5.2 etc.
If there are 30 uncleared faults in the memory the next
occurring fault will erase the oldest from the memory.
Pressing the Enter button for about 2 to 3 seconds resets the
whole fault history. Then, the symbol H# will change to 0.

3.3.9 Copy parameters


The parameter copy function is used when the operator wants to
copy one or all parameter groups from one drive to another. All
the parameter groups are first uploaded to the keypad, then the
keypad is connected to another drive and then the parameter
groups are downloaded to it (or possibly back to the same
drive).
Before any parameters can successfully be copied from one
drive to another the drive has to be stopped when the parameters are downloaded to it:
The parameter copy menu (S6.3) embodies four functions:
Parameter sets (S6.3.1)
The Vacon NX frequency converter features a possibility for the
user to load back the factory default parameter values and to
store and load two customized parameter sets (all parameters
included in the application). Alimak default parameter set is
stored as Set1.
On Parameter sets page (S6.3.1), push the Menu button right to
enter the Edit menu. The text LoadFactDef begins to blink and
you can confirm the loading of factory defaults by pushing the
Enter button. The drive resets automatically. Alternatively you
can choose any other of the storing or loading functions with
the Browser buttons.
Confirm with the Enter button. Wait until 'OK' appears on the
display.

4. FAULT TRACING
When a fault is detected by the frequency converter control
electronics, the drive is stopped and the symbol F together with
the ordinal number of the fault, the fault code and a short fault
description appear on the display. The fault can be reset with the
Reset button on the control keypad or via the I/O terminal. The
faults are stored in the Fault history menu (M5) which can be
browsed. The different fault codes you will find in the table
below.
The fault codes, their causes and correcting actions are
presented in the table below. The shadowed / yellow faults are
A faults only. The items written in white on black background
present faults for which you can program different responses in
the application. See parameter group Protections.
Note: When contacting distributor or factory because of a fault
condition, always write down all texts and codes on the keypad
display.

O P E R ATI N G I N STR U CTIO N S

The majority of Alimak hoists and lifts can be equipped with an Alimak Automatic Rack
Lubricator.
The rack lubricator provides the following major benefits:
*

Proper lubrication of the rack and the pinions

Improves ride comfort

No man-hours or downtime for lubrication maintenance

Reduced wear and tear on racks and pinions substantially lowers maintenance and
downtime cost

Longer operating life for the hoist or lift

The system consists of an DC electric grease pump complete with reservoir, mounted on
the cage roof. A preprogrammable integrated electronic control unit with variable run
and pause times, provides correct lubrication under all running conditions.

Central lubrication pump Quicklub 203 CS

is a compact multiline pump consisting of:


reservoir with stirring paddle, housing with built-in motor
timer, pump element, safety valve and filler fitting

can drive up to three pump elements

operates according to lubrication cycles (pause or time


of readiness and operating time)

safely stored for about five days. After this time is expired,
all stored data will be cancelled.
When the power is switched ON again, a new lubrication
cycle begins which is started with the operating time.

Alimak Lift Control, ALC II


Alimak lift control, ALC II, is the name of Alimaks modular
controller. The ALC system consists of a microprocessor based
controller, equipped with a high speed pulse counter input and a
pulse encoder. The position of the lift / hoist is determined by
counting impulses generated by the pulse encoder attached to
the drive unit.
To establish a reference point, a reference cam is attached to the
mast. When travelling in the calibration mode, the controller
receives the reference points by means of a limit switch
attached to the car.
The concept behind this modular system is that the main unit
will control the lowest range of lifts. The system can expand in
one step by adding an expansion unit and thereby be able to
control most of the standard lifts and their equipment.
The prime components of the controller system is one main unit
and two expansion units.
The main car unit consists of a CPU card and one I/O card (11
inputs and 7 outputs, X11 X14) in a common enclosure. The
CPU card is equipped with the following:
A high-speed pulse encoder input (terminals X4:1 to X4:5).
Two wire communication for communication with the Base
CPU unit (X8:2 and X8:3).
Six wire communication with push-buttons/keypad and
displays (X3:1 to X3:6)
Power inputs and outputs (X1 and X2).
Three different communication interfaces: One RS232, a
two channel CAN-bus (X6 and X7) and a TCP/IP interface.
A battery charger.
4 push-buttons for programming (Up, Down, SNL and Prog).
One I/O card, same as the one in the main unit, is placed in a
separate enclosure to be used as expansion unit (maximum one).
The Base unit consists of a CPU card (same as the one in the
Car-CPU) in a separate enclosure. The CPU card is equipped
with the following:
Two wire communication for communication with the Car
CPU unit (X8:2 and X8:3).
Six wire communication with the landing equipment (X3:1
to X3:6).
Power inputs and outputs (X1 and X2).
Three different communication interfaces: One RS232, a
two channel CAN-bus (X6 and X7) and a TCP/IP interface.

ALIMAK 34184 -1/08

A3

Battery charger
The Car-CPU is equipped with a built-in battery charger.
The charger is charging the 7Ah battery with 700mA up to the
voltage level of 14.9V. When the charging current is less than
70mA, then a timer starts and keeps the charging phase on for
one hour before it goes into trickle charging.
If the battery voltage level goes down to 11V, then the charger
disconnects the battery from the load in order to protect the
battery.

Fuses
There are 4 fuses on the CPU-unit:
2 fuses (3.15A) are for the 2 x 19VAC input to the ALC II.
1 fuse (4A) is for the 24VDC output.
1 fuse (1.25A) is for the 12VDC output

Control systems
In the main software there are two different control systems
available:

Semi automatic ...


... and Collective
The ALC II system automatically selects the control system.

ALIMAK 35047 -1/08

A4

Semi-automatic control system: (Stop Next Landing)


This is the least complex used control system available in the
ALC controller and operates without any landing cams. The
position of the lift is determined by counting impulses
generated by the pulse encoder attached to the gear box.
The lift can be operated push-buttons or with joystick from
inside the car and if chosen, also from the landings by using Up,
Down and Stop Next Landing push-buttons.

Push buttons on
landing control station

With the joystick, or by pressing a button for Up or Down, the


car starts travelling in the chosen direction. When the car
approaches the desired landing, the button Stop Next Landing is
pressed. The car will then stop automatically at the landing.
Calls / destinations from a landing box unit with Up, Down and
Stop Next Landing push-buttons operate on 230 VAC control
wires between the car and the landings via the base panel. A
destination order from the car has three seconds priority over
landing calls.

Collective control system:


This is the most advanced control system available in the ALC
controller. The lift can be operated from inside the car and if
chosen, also from the landings. Each landing is provided with
two call buttons, one for each travel direction.
There are two means of operating the lift from inside the car:
By destination push-buttons one for each landing (perm. lifts).
By keypad (construction hoists).
This system receives all destination orders from inside the car,
as well as calls from the landings. The information is memorized and processed within the system.
ALIMAK 34817 -1 /04

A5
During the travel the lift will automatically stop at all floors,
which have been addressed.
If operation from inside the car is done by means of the keypad,
access to the Stop Next Landing control system is automatic.
The keypad is consisting of 15 push-buttons. 12 of them are for
the collective system: 0 9, ENT and CLR. The other three
push-buttons are for the Stop Next Landing system: Up, Down
and Stop Next Landing, which operates in parallel with the
collective system.

Keypad panel inside the car appl. for construction hoists

On every landing there is one I / O-card with two external


illuminated call buttons: one for each travel direction and one
indicator lamp: Out of service.
The I / O-cards are connected to a six wire communication
circuit that terminates in a base CPU inside the base panel. The
information is transmitted from the base CPU to the car CPU
(main unit) on a two wire communication circuit in the trailing
cable.

ALC II additional features


Auto return, Authorized drive, Flood alarm and High wind speed are
examples of features available in the ALC II system. These functions
can be chosen with the systems normal set-up procedures (page A 12
A 13).
Auto return
Auto return means that the lift returns to its base location after a
certain delay in time. (1 7 min. possible to be set).
This function is set in GROUP 8 and will be activated when time is
chosen and set. Base location is normally the base landing (0) and this
does not need any further setting. This can, however be changed in
GROUP 10 13 to another landing level, if desired.
Example: Base location on landing level 3.
Set Group 10. VALUE V1 + V2 = landing level 3.
Authorized drive
Authorized drive means for example that a crane operator via a signal
to the I/O-card at the base landing can address the lift to the base
location and also delete all other calls and destinations until the
same person unlocks the lift.
Set this funtcion in GROUP 5, VALUE 1.
Base location is normally the base landing (0) and this does not need
any further setting. This can, however be changed in GROUP 10 13
to another landing level, if desired.
Flood alarm
Flood alarm means that a signal from a trottle device automatically
addresses the lift to a level where the water cannot reach.
Set this function in GROUP 5, VALUE 4.
Decide suitable level and set this in GROUP 10 13.
High wind speed / Low temperature
High wind speed means that the I/O-card in the base can receive a
signal from a wind speed meter and then automatically address the lift
to the base location and then also delete all calls and destinations
until the wind speed will decrease.
Set this function in GROUP 7, VALUE 1
Base location is normally the base landing (0) and this does not need
any further setting. This can, however be changed in GROUP 10 13
to another landing level.
Low temperature = corresponding function as High wind speed.
Slipforming
Slipforming means that the lift will stop on temporarily installed cams
located on the moveable slipform.
The system receives continuously information where the lift is located
on the mast via input to the car CPUs expansion unit. The temp.
installed cams are monitored by the ordinary normal and final limit
cams on the mast.
See page A 36 for programming of the movable top landing for
slipforming.
ALIMAK 34908 -1/10

A7
1 instead of 0 at the base landing
This means that the system counts levels, starting from 1, 2, 3 instead
of 0,1, 2. If this function is chosen all former programmed levels in
the system must be deleted.
Set this in GROUP 6, VALUE 1.
Base location in top
Base location in top means that the base CPU is connected to the top
landing instead of the bottom landing.
This is preferable for offshore lifts installed inside the oil rigs
support leg.
Set this in GROUP 6, VALUE 2.
Explosion proof lifts
Explosion proof lifts require an extra ordinary configuration with I/Ocard containing push-buttons. Refer to separate publ. No. 9081648
Set this in GROUP 15, VALUE 2.
High speed monitoring
High speed monitoring (according to demands in North America)
means that the lift will stop as soon as the preset value for normal
operation exceeds. The display inside the car will then show F8.
Value for maximum speed is preset and cannot be changed. Set this in
GROUP 9, VALUE 2.
Fire alarm
Fire alarm means that a fire detecting device via a signal to the I/Ocard at the base landing can address the lift to the base location and
also delete all other calls and destinations until fire fighting
personnel unlocks the lift. Refer to separate publ. No. 9081 647.
Set this in GROUP 4, VALUE 1, 2 or 4 depending on applicable
regulations.
The lift will return to desired level chosen in GROUP 10 13.
Floating landing level
Floating landing level can detect via a signal to the I/O-card at the
base landing where the landing is located even if the landing level is
changed. This feature is preferable for boiler installed lifts where the
whole structure can expand and move compared with the entire lift
installation.
Top landing calibration
Calibration drive at the top landing means that the factory calibration
drive and the regular calibration drive (CD) against the ref./ret. cam is
done in the mast top. All remaining landing levels are programmed
starting with the bottom landing 0 at the base landing as usual.
Set this in GROUP 9, VALUE 1.
More than 32 landings
Set this in GROUP 14, VALUE 1.
For a fully collective control system a booster unit must be added to
the ALC-systemfor landing levels more than 32 pcs.

This system calibration drive is normally done at the factory at
delivery, but must be done once again if the car CPU is to be
replaced.
During the system calibration drive the lift is running automatically up and down 4 times to measure speed and then by
itself calculate the stopping distances.
IMPORTANT ! Lifting height needed for this purpose is
minimum 15 20 m at a speed of 0.70 1.1 m/s (50 65 ft.
at a speed of 135 215 fpm.). More when higher speed
occurs.
The system calibaration drive is done from inside the car and
starting from the bottom landing.

To put the system in system set-up / calibration mode is


done according to the following
Turn the main power switch to OFF position.
Disconnect the battery.
Keep the Prog. button on the car CPU depressed and then
turn main power switch to ON position.
Keep the Prog. button depressed until the LED SYS
CHK lights up (after 2 sec.).
Then continue pushing the Stop Next Landing button,
Down button and finally
the Up button.
Keep all 4 buttons depressed whereupon all 8 LEDs
for GROUP and VALUE start flashing.
Release all buttons when the LEDs start flashing with
shorter intervals. The system is in calibration mode and all
parameters established in a basic set-up when the LEDs go
out.
The display shows:
System with dual display.

System with single display.

The LEDs V1 and V2 are flashing rapidly indicating that the


system is lack of speed information.
Reconnect the battery

If the base configuration is changed after the delivery from
factory due to more added landing stations, the LED V8 on the
car CPU starts lighting. This is fully normal and the intention is
only to indicate that there is a change made to the equipment.
If the reason is other than just more added landing stations a
new base configuration must be performed.
To replace the present base configuration proceed according
to the following:
Disconnect the battery.
Switch off the car main electrical panel.
Switch off the base main electrical panel.
Reset the base main electrical switch in ON position.
Keep the Prog. button on the car CPU depressed and put the
main electrical switch in ON position.
Continue keeping the Prog. button depressed and then push
the Stop Next Landing 2 (two) times.
Finally release the Prog. button
The display shows:
(no landings are programmed into the system):
System with dual display.

System with single display.

Reconnect the battery


Calibration drive is performed from inside the car, starting
from the bottom landing.

Stop / retardation distances


The stopping distance (DOL lift) or retardation distance (VFC
lift), is automatically set during the calibration drive up and
down against the Reference / Retardation down cam.

NOTE!
The down limit cam shall always be adjusted so that the up /
down limit switch is approximately 10 mm (1/2 in.) above the
cam when the lift is level with the bottom landing. Deviations
can occur. Please see the manuals delivered with the lift.

Stop distances (DOL lift)


The ALC controller automatically sets the stopping distances,
automatically during system calibration drive, in the following
manner:
Push the Up and Down buttons on the car ALC CPU. The lift
moves in an upward direction and stops a short distance
above the Reference / Retardation cam. The lift is now
located above the Reference / Retardation cam and is still in
calibration mode.
The lift moves automatically upwards to measure speed and
brake distance in the upward direction. After that the lift
moves automatically downwards to measure speed and brake
distance in the opposite direction. The system does this
procedure 4 times. If the speeds are equal for 4 different
starts the system itself makes the conclusion that the lift is
intended for DOL opeartion.
The lift moves once more this time downwards to stop on
the Reference / Retardation cam.
The ALC-system returns to normal mode with door
zone, the stop distances and speed automatically programmed into the system.

NOTE!
The Reference / Retardation cam shall be located approximately 240 mm (9 1/2 in.) above the down limit cam.
Deviations can occur. Please see the manuals delivered with
the lift.
New system set-up and system calibration must be done if
car CPU is replaced.
Keep the Up/Down button depressed during the entire drive
sequence if the hold to run feature is chosen.

ALIMAK 34820 -1 /05

A 11

Retardation distances (VFC lift)


The ALC controller sets the retardation distances automatically
during system calibration drive, in the following manner:
Push the Up and Down buttons on the car ALC CPU. The lift
accelerates to nominal speed upwards.
When the Reference / Retardation switch leaves the cam, the
ALC controller removes the high speed signal and the lift
decelerates and stops.
The lift is now located above the Reference / Retardation
cam and is still in calibration mode.
The lift accelerates automatically upwards to high speed,
retards and stops. Speed and retardation distance, from high
to low speed in upwards direction are now stored into the
system. The lift accelerates once more automatically
downwards to high speed, retards and stops. Speed and
retardation distance, from high to low speed in downwards
direction are now stored into the system.
The system does this procedure 3 more times to measure 2
intermediate speeds and 1 low speed with corresponding
retardation distances.
The lift will stop on the reference cam after 4 times up and
down.
Retardation distances for 4 different speeds and the door
zone are now programmed into the ALC-system. This
system calibration is normally done at the factory.
If the lift is moving on crawling speed for approximately 2
to 10 cm (1 4 in.) before it stops, then the retardation
distance is Ok.

NOTE!
The Reference / Retardation cam shall be located approximately 1.1 x Y m above the down limit cam. (Y= the lift
speed in m/sec.). Deviations can occur. Please see the
manuals delivered with the lift.
The lift should move on crawling speed for only approximately 2 to 10 cm (1 4 in.) when stopping at landing.
If location of the reference cam is changed all landing levels
must be changed the corresponding way.
New system set-up and system calibration must be done if
car CPU is replaced.
Keep the Up/Down button depressed during the entire drive
sequence if the hold to run feature is chosen.

System set-up
A system set-up has to be performed in order to prepare the
controller for the actual lift and its functions. Set-up is performed in the following manner:
Switch off the main power.
Disconnect the battery.
Press on and hold Prog. button.
Note: The button must be kept depressed during the entire
set-up procedure.
Switch on the main power. The system is now in set-up
mode.
On the main unit there are 2 locations with 4 LED indicators
in a row close to the push-buttons.
In system set-up mode the 4 LEDs indicate VALUE, V1,
V2, V4 and V8 in binary code. (LED sys. check is flashing).
The 4 LEDs above indicate GROUP, G1, G2, G4 and G8 in
binary code. (LED SYS. CHECK is illuminated).
The Up or Down buttons are used to select GROUP level.
The Stop Next Landing button is used to open and select
VALUE level.
Select VALUE with Up / Down buttons. Depress the Stop
Next Landing button to store VALUE level and the system
then will switch to GROUP.
Set the binary code in accordance with the lift and its
functions, using the table on page A13.
The value will be stored every time Stop Next Landing
push-button is depressed.
Release Prog. button.
Connect the battery. The system set-up is now completed.

See collection of illustrative examples at the end of this manual.


NOTE! All values in GROUP 15 must be preset before the
factory calibration drive is performed. After running the
factory calibration drive the GROUP 15 will be locked for
further changes.

The Up and Down keys can also be used to direct the hoist to
the top or bottom landing.
If the wrong key is pressed (for example 7) and it is discovered
before the ENT key is pressed, just delete that by pressing key
CLR and then try again.
If a landing that is closed is addressed the right display will
indicate a large X, but as soon as the CLR key is pressed the
system will ignore the call and clear the display. Immediately
after this, the system is ready to take a new call.

Destination, with semi automatic control:


By pressing a key for Up or Down, the car starts travelling
in the chosen direction.
When the car approaches the desired landing, press the key
Stop Next Landing and the car will then stop automatically at
the landing. After approximately 8 seconds on a landing the
system is ready for a new destination.

A landing box unit containing one I / O-card with two external
illuminated call buttons: one for each travel direction.
The I / O-cards are connected to a six wire communication
circuit that connects to a base CPU inside the base panel. Floor
level indication display can be supplied as an option.
The information transmits from the base CPU to the car CPU
(main unit) on a two wire communication circuit in the trailing(hybrid or separate control cable) cable.

Operation
Display:
Above the destination buttons there is one 2-digit display. This
always shows the actual landing. It also shows if the lift is
above, below or inside the landing zone.

ALC for Ex proof lifts


The car CPU and display are builtinto the el-panel on the car roof but
visible behind an unbreakable and
heat proof piece of glass . . .

If display shows:
this means that the lift is above landing 5.

If display shows:
this means that the lift is inside landing 5. (within
the landing zone).

If display shows:
this means that the lift is below landing 5.

Destination, with push-buttons

Hints:
When the alarm signal switch is activated the telephone will call up after 5 seconds of delay time.
To do so, there must be a telephone number programmed and a telephone line connected.
When the telephone starts calling, the connection sound is clearly heard from the speaker.
Adjust the volume if needed with the volume control.
The first two telephone numbers (primary and secondary) are pre-programmed for P100. There must be
an 8- figure alarm code programmed to make the P100 or CPC alarm work. The last two telephone
numbers (third and forth) are programmed for vocal connection.
Vocal connection means a standard telephone call.
The receiving party does not have to do anything to get a vocal connection it is automatically done.
To disconnect a vocal connection the receiving party should press "9" or "#" otherwise the line will be
busy about 90 seconds after completion of the call.
To call the lift telephone just call the connecting telephone number, the telephone will after 2 signals
automatically connect the call.
Disconnect after completion of the call by pressing "9" or "#".
To call the lift telephone, if they are conne cted in series
The telephones must be programmed with different unit numbers (see programming). When calling to the
lift the telephone will answer after 2 signals, chose the unit number that corresponds with the telephone
you want to call.
Ex: You want to talk to unit number 3.
Call the telephone number, and when the telephone answers, press "3" repeatedly on your dialtone
telephone or mobile telephone, until you hear 2 distinctive calling tones witch indicates that the call
is connected to the right telephone.
Disconnect after completion of the call by pressing "9" or "#".
One of the 4 programmed telephone numbers could be to a beeper.
The telephone can be programmed to leave a digital code to the beeper.
To make it work the alarm type must be changed to "MINICALL"
If it does not work, check:
Is there a connection? - The diode lamp "LINE" should not be red.
Is there power? - The diode lamp POWER should glow/blink red or green.
Is remote unit connected right? - Check the connection (Note the crossed connections!).
If you connect it via modular plugs - Check that incoming line is connected on the 2 inner pins.
Is there any telephone number programmed? - Check with the hand unit.
Is there any alarm code programmed? - Check with the hand unit.
Is it calling the right number? - Check by calling on a regular phone.
Has the alarm- receiving operator the right equipment? - Check with the operator.

Safeline 1000
Programming:
To program the telephone, a programming unit HT99-H is needed.
It is also possible to program the telephone by using a dialtone telephone,
or with our Window-based PC software*
Programming with Safeline Hand Unit HT99-H
It is possible to register all alarm codes and telephone numbers long before programming the telephone. The
hand unit is battery powered and saves all codes and numbers in the memory, even if the power is turned off
or the battery is changed.

Programming from a dialtone telephone:
It is possible to program the telephone by calling to it.
By using different dialtone commands it is possible to program all codes and telephone numbers to the telephone.

This is how to do it:


If only one telephone is connected to the line:
1: Call the lift telephone. It will answer with 3 tones after 2 signals (this is standard but can be changed to 0-16
signals).
If more then one telephone are connected to the line:
1:

Call the alarm telephone. After 2 signals the telephone will answer
(always 2 signals when more than one connected lift telephone).
To get to e.g. telephone number 3, press "3" repeatedly until 3 distinctly signals are heard and the connection is
made.

2:

Dial "00", the lift telephone will answer with "OK" (2 short signals) or "Wrong" (1 long signal).

3:

Dial the password - * XXXX # where XXXX stands for the password. The default password is "0000".
The lift telephone answers with "OK" (2 short signals) or "Wrong" (1 long signal).

4:

Change codes and/or telephone numbers according to the below table.


There is a time span of 5 seconds between the digits, after that time there will be a "Wrong" signal and the
registration has to start all over again.
After 30 seconds without activity the lift telephone will disconnect the call.

5:

After a successful registering the code/telephone number will be saved.


If there is a "Wrong" signal or if the call is disconnected, all successful registering are saved.

Hints:
When the alarm signal switch is activated the telephone will call up after 5 seconds of delay time.
To do so, there must be a telephone number programmed and a telephone line connected.
When the telephone starts calling, the connection sound is clearly heard from the speaker.
Adjust the volume if needed with the volume control.
The first two telephone numbers (primary and secondary) are pre-programmed for P100. There must be
an 8- figure alarm code programmed to make the P100 or CPC alarm work. The last two telephone
numbers (third and forth) are programmed for vocal connection.
Vocal connection means a standard telephone call.
The receiving party does not have to do anything to get a vocal connection it is automatically done.
To disconnect a vocal connection the receiving party should press "9" or "#" otherwise the line will be
busy about 90 seconds after completion of the call.
To call the lift telephone just call the connecting telephone number. The telephone will after 2 signals
automatically connect the call.
Disconnect after completion of the call by pressing "9" or "#".
To call the lift telephone, if they are connected in series
The telephones must be programmed with different unit numbers (see programming). When calling to the
lift the telephone it will answer after 2 signals, chose the unit number that corresponds with the telephone
you want to call.
Ex: You want to talk to unit number 3.
Call the telephone number and, when the telephone answers, repeatedly press "3" on your dialtone
telephone or mobile telephone until. When you hear 2 distinctive calling tones the call is connected to
the right telephone.
Disconnect after completion of the call by pressing "9" or "#".
One of the 4 programmed telephone numbers could be to a beeper.
The telephone can be programmed to leave a digital code to the beeper.
To make it work the alarm type must be changed to "MINICALL"
If it does not work, check:
Is there a connection? - The diode lamp "LINE" should not be red
Is there power? - The diode lamp POWER should glow/blink red or green.
Is remote unit connected right? - Check the connection (Note the crossed connections!)
If you connect it via modular plugs - Check that incoming line is connected on the 2 inner pins.
Is there any telephone number programmed? - Check with the hand unit
Is there any alarm code programmed? - Check with the hand unit
Is it calling the right number? - Check by calling on a regular phone.
Has the alarm- receiving operator the right equipment? - Check with the operator

INSTRUCTION FOR INSULATION TEST


OF
CONTROL CABINETS FOR LIFTS
0.

General
According to the common European Lift Regulation EN 81-1 the lifts electrical equipment
must be insulation tested. Insulation test (megging) is performed in control cabinets who
are included in the lifts electrical equipment, usually cabinet B and M.
If the electrical equipment contain more cabinets they shall also be insulation tested in the
extent of what is applicable in the actual case.
The measuring must be done in following circuits:
- 3 phase main circuits with voltage 220 690V AC.
- security circuit/stop circuit with voltage 110, 220 or 230V AC.
- lightning circuit with voltage 220 / 230V AC, (some countries 110 or 127V AC).
IMPORTANT !
Electrical equipments includes electronics components and electronic systems. Electronics are also included as an integrate part in a lot of other components for example time delay relays phase relays and transmitters.
Disconnect equipment as ALC, OCD-amplifier, battery charger etc.
To not destroy electronics equipment or electronic components due to insulation
test it is very important that the test is performed carefully and the person who
make the test have good knowledge with the insulation test instrument.

The main principal for insulation are following:


1. Always use the circuit diagram for the equipment so you can see that the measure
is being executed only in adapted circuits.
2. Electronic components and electronic control system, their control circuits with
in- and output signals, must be disconnected and insulation test of these is prohibited.
3. Phases in 3-phase circuits R(L1), S(L2), T(L3) are connected together so they get the
same potential.
4. In 1-phase circuits connect phase and neutral together so they get the same potential.
5. The safety circuits outgoing and ingoing circuits are connected together so they get the
same potential.
6. Insulation test is performed against earth (PE).
7. Insulation test between phases in 3-phase circuits and between phase and zero (N) is
prohibited.

2.

B-panel
a.
3-phase main circuit in the B-panel without VFC (Megging 500V DC, 0,5M)
Use the circuit diagram for help to make sure that the measure is executed in the
correct circuit. Be careful so the test voltage isnt applied on any electronic components.
1. If the control cabinet contains a control transformer the supply on the primary side
of the transformer must be switched off by putting the motor circuit breaker/ automatic fuse in position 0. Also break the supply from the transformer secondary side
by putting the automatic fuse in position 0. This is done so the transformer wont
generate any transient impulses during the insulation test.
2. If the control cabinet contains or supplies a separate assembled control transformer
for the lightning, break the supply on the primary and secondary side according to
point 1 above.
3. Make a temporary connection between the three terminal blocks for phases
R (L1), S (L2) and T (L3) on the incoming power to the control cabinet.
4. Use the 500V megger and measure between PE (earth) and the together connected
phase conductors. Operate the main switch and contactors manually so the whole
3-phase circuit in the control cabinets gets tested.
The insulation resistance to PE (earth) shall be > 0,5M.
Write down the measured value into the *Insulation protocol.
*Insulation protocol Alimak SE-lift with ALC-RELAY 9081621-101

b.

3-phase main circuit in panel with VFC (Megging 500V DC, 0,5M)
In special equipment the VFC-unit is sometimes placed in the B-panel.
Use the circuit diagram for help to make sure that the measure is executed in the
correct circuit. Be careful so the test voltage isnt applied on any electronic components.
1. Break the supply on the control transformer primary side by putting the motor
circuit breaker/ automatic fuse in position 0. Also break the supply from the transformer secondary side by putting the automatic fuse in position 0. This is done so
the transformer wont generate any transient impulses during the insulation test..
2. If the control cabinet contains or supplies a separate assembled control transformer
for the lightning, break the supply on the primary and secondary side according to
point 1 above.
3. Make followings temporary connections:
a) Between the three terminal blocks R (L1), S (L2), T (L3), incoming 3-phase
power supply to the control cabinet.
b) In the VFC between the three terminal blocks L1, L2, L3 for incoming power.
Make sure that L1, L2, L3 is disconnected from the motor circuit.

3
9081622-101
c) Between the three terminal blocks U, V, W, for power supply to the motor(s).
Disconnect the contact rail U, V, W from the VFC.
d) Remove the contact list from the program circuit card.
e) Make sure that the VFC is completely disconnected from the motor circuit.

4.

Use the 500V megger and measure between PE (earth) and the together
connected terminal blocks.
Write down the measured value in the Insulations protocol*.

(B-panel continuing)
c.
Safety circuit /stop circuit with voltage 110 - 230V (Megging 500V DC, 0,5M)
Use the circuit diagram for help to make sure that the measure is executed in the
correct circuit. Be careful so the test voltage isnt applied on any electronic components.
1. If the panel contain a control transformer the primary and secondary side must be
disconnected, see a.1 and b.1 above.
2. Make a temporary connection between the neutral terminal secondary side, (i.e.
the side that hasnt got a yellow/green wire towards earth), and the automatic fuse
secondary side in the control voltage circuit.
The control voltages phase and neutral conductors is now connected together.
If a control transformer is not included in the equipment, make a temporary connection between the terminal blocks for the safety circuits out- and ingoing circuits.
3. Open the middle screw placed on the neutral terminal in the control circuit.
Make sure that the ALC, OCD-amplifier, battery charger etc. are disconnected.
4. Use the 500V megger and measure between PE (earth) and the neutral
terminal blocks on secondary side.
The insulation resistance shall be > 0,5M.
