Self-Tapping

IMPORTANT: Ensure that the refrigeration system and defrost function is operating without any known defects. If there is a known problem with the refrigeration system or with the defrost function, conduct the proper maintenance in order to correct the issue before proceeding with installation.

System Requirements

• Refrigeration systems with electric defrost heaters • Defrost control voltage must be 230 VAC, 50Hz or 60Hz • System must have an electro-mechanical time clock that contains a contact closure reset input for defrost termination

For Best Results:

• Defrost time clock should be programmed for three or more defrosts per day

• Defrost set to terminate normally on coil temperature • Optimal performance on systems that have daily varying loads

Installation and maintenance to be performed only by qualified personnel who are familiar with local codes and regulations and experienced with this type of equipment. Since product improvement is continuing effort, we reserve the right to make changes in specifications without notice.

Part #25011201

It’s that easy to install.

  • 1. turn off the refrigeration system and mount the SDK control module inside the electrical panel.

  • 3. Install the suction pressure transducer onto the Schrader fitting using the Schrader ‘t’ provided.

Schrader ‘T’

It’s that easy to install. 1. turn off the refrigeration system and mount the SDK control

Sensor Cable

It’s that easy to install. 1. turn off the refrigeration system and mount the SDK control
  • 2. Connect the six wires* as shown on the wiring diagram below. Four wires attach to the time clock and two connect to the compressor contractor coil.

*Recommend 18 gauge, 600 volt wire.

  • 4. Install temperature sensor onto side (90˚) of suction line and insulate.

It’s that easy to install. 1. turn off the refrigeration system and mount the SDK control
  • 5. Verify correct wiring: turn on power to unit without the temperature or pressure sensors connected. • Examine the StAtuS LED indicator: if the StAtuS LED color matches system mode correctly, the wiring is correct

Blinking Red:

System is in defrost mode

Blinking Green:

System is in cooling mode

Blinking Yellow: System is off

  • 6. to activate the SDK: turn off power, connect sensors to the module, turn on power. StAtuS LED is blinking Green-Yellow.

It’s that easy to install. 1. turn off the refrigeration system and mount the SDK control

System operation

• Following power-up, the StAtuS LED will alternate colors between GREEN and YELLOw at a .5 second

rate to indicate that the SDK is synchronizing itself with the refrigeration system. this pattern is maintained until a termination of defrost is observed. the status indicator color then changes to YELLOw.

• the SENSOR LEDs will be GREEN if the sensor is functioning properly and RED if the sensors are not functioning properly.

• If the sensor color is RED, check the connection to make sure that it is seated properly on the control module. Also check

the wire harness connection at the pressure transducer.

• If the connections are in place, you will need to replace the sensor.

LED STATuS Indicator Lights

• GREEN = No defrost was necessary, defrost was skipped

• YELLOw = Defrost was necessary, defrost occurred

• RED = Control module failure. You will need to replace the module. when the StAtuS LED is RED, the skip defrost output will not activate.

Note: The SDK module will continue to operate without one or the other of the sensors attached, but the results will be less then optimal.

Turn on the power and start S av I ng money.
