PROGRAMMING INFORMATION

NOTICE! As with any computer upgrade, you run the risk of making your dryer inoperable if the programming procedure is interrupted during the upgrade. NEVER TURN OFF POWER DURING UPGRADE PROCESS!


If you are currently drying grain, we highly recommend you wait until you are finished drying grain before attempting to update your software.


ATTENTION! Software version P101 and higher is now using a user safety inputs located on the main I/O board inside the upper control box of your dryer.


If you are upgrading your dryer from prior software revisions then you will need to place a jumper wire between J2-02 and J2-03 (User Safety #1 input) to provide 12VDC to this input. Then add jumpers between J2-03, J2-05, J2-06 (all (4) open user safety inputs). Failure to do so will cause your dryer to become inoperable due to a user safety shutdown message until this procedure is done.


These inputs can be used to stop dryer operation by connecting auxiliary equipment between 12VDC and the safety input with a N/C closed connection that will open in the event of a shutdown or equipment failure.


IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ! If you experience any issues with motors not starting you may need to reset the computer to factory defaults. If you need to reset your controls you can download the following document. How to Reset Your Touch Screen Controller back to Factory Defaults
