U-Tap Controller Fault Indications
For Water Stations Only


This alarm signals the operator should the U-TAP Controller NOT receive a feedback signal within 5 seconds from the starter Auxiliary contact that it has actually pulled in when told to do so. The alarm will dial out if so selected. This alarm typically occurs most frequently due to the operator leaving the H.O.A. switch in the off position. An open starter coil will also cause this alarm condition. To avoid this alarm when a pump is off line, place that pumps virtual HOA switch in the Off position. To reset alarm, press Enter button once.
This alarm signals the operator should the U-TAP Controller NOT receive a feedback signal within 10 seconds from the flow switch that flow has actually occurred once the well turns on. The alarm will dial out if so selected. This alarm typically occurs most frequently due to the flow switch failing, gate valve closed or a failure in your well pump. This alarm will only trigger if the starter has pulled in properly and water flow is expected. The pump and associated chlorination will shut down in this fault mode. Remaining pumps will continue operation as normal. To reset alarm, press Enter button once.
This alarm signals the operator should the U-TAP control panel receive a transducer 4-20 ma signal outside the designated range of 4-20 ma. All pumps will shut off and notice to your alarm dialer will occur. This alarm occurs most frequently due to an open transducer lead, or failed transducer. A zero PSI on your system will also give this alarm since 0 PSI is far out of normal operating range. To reset alarm, press Enter button once. For a hydro-pneumatic configuration, no air will be added and pump activity will cease while in this fault mode.
This alarm signals the operator within 30 seconds that the system pressure has reached the OPERATOR SELECTED LOW PSI ALARM SETPOINT. This alarm will dial out if so selected. Excessive draw down will cause this alarm to occur. Alarm setpoint can be easily set or changed by operator. To reset alarm, press Enter button once. For a hydro-pneumatic configuration, no air will be added while in this fault mode. All pumps will attempt to operate as normal.
This alarm signals the operator within 10 seconds that the system pressure has reached the OPERATOR SELECTED HIGH PSI ALARM SETPOINT. This alarm will dial out if so selected. The H.O.A. left in an on position or equipment failure will cause this alarm to occur. Alarm setpoint can be easily set or changed by operator. When this alarm point is reached , the controller will shut down the automatic control of the pumps. To reset alarm, press Enter button once. For a hydro-pneumatic configuration, no air will be added and pump activity will cease while in this fault mode.
This alarm, particular to the hydro-pneumatic U-TAP controller indicates to the operator the automatic controls are operating OUTSIDE of the designated probe levels. The controller is in a "probe failure mode" and is operating only as a pressure controller through the range designated by the operator. The system will not automatically add air while in this fault mode. See the probe setup sheet for more information regarding this alarm. This is not a dial out alarm but a warning to the operator to check for air leaks, probe failure or improper setup of the system.
