Antares Warewash Dispensing System
Product Benefits
Advanced Design
The Antares uses surface mount electronic components to provide powerful features in a small package.
A multi-line LCD screen allows intuitive programming of all options.

Reliability
The gasket-enclosed Antares Warewash Dispenser is highly water resistant and the electronics are protected
within the enclosure. The readout gives confirmation of detergent and rinse signals.

Versatility
The Antares can be configured as a conductivity probe controlled unit or as a probeless, time-based
dispenser. It can accept a 100-249VAC nominal (+/- 10% fluctuation) main power input at 50 or 60 Hz.
Rinse and Detergent control signals are universal “machine interface” types that are capable of accepting
any voltage from 24 to 240 VAC nominal (+/- 10% fluctuation) or 24 VDC (+/- 10% fluctuation). Antares can
control either capsule or liquid detergents.

Cost Savings
A special Rinse Saver Feature prevents rinse additive waste during fills of the washer. Digital electronics
ensure accurate detergent control and minimize overuse. The Antares contains energy management features
which can be used to track water and power usage and cost per rack over time. Reports indicate percentage
of racks washed successfully and racks where alarms occurred.

Intelligence
The Antares includes a rack counter as a “standard” feature. A unique “De-Lime” mode allows for
safe washer cleaning without detergent waste.

Choice of Options
A full range of programmable options are included, such as Rinse Delay, Variable Alarm Volume, and Manual
Prime for both rinse and detergent. Hardware options include detergent tank and rinse probe temperature.

Easy Service/Repair
The Antares features convenient front access for all services. No internal access to the cabinet is required for
installation and routine maintenance. Spare parts are available in modular form for fast, convenient repairs.

Rinse Injection Fitting

1. Choose a location to install the rinse injection fitting at least 6”
   below the dish machine rinse plumbing vacuum breaker to conform             Compression Fitting
   to plumbing codes. The injection fitting threads into 1/8” NPT female       (tube from pump)
   threads. If the dish machine rinse plumbing is thin-wall pipe, use a
   saddle clamp with a 1/8” NPT threaded hole. If an optional pressure
   switch will be used, thread the injection fitting into one side of the
   pressure switch water source fitting pipe tee.
2. Check for a tapped hole to accommodate the fitting. A suitable hole         Threads into
   must be at least 6” downstream from the solenoid valve and vacuum           rinse plumbing
   breaker. On continuous rack, flight, or conveyor machines, be sure
   this location is downstream from any rinse by-pass water pipe.              Figure 3-4 Rinse Injection Fitting
3. If no suitable hole exists, drill an 11/32” hole in the rinse plumbing
   injection location.
4. Tap the hole with a 1/8” NPT tap.
5. Install the injection fitting. Use thread sealant to ensure a leak-free
   assembly.

Overview

This chapter describes the electrical connections of the Antares. In this chapter, you will connect:
•      Probe wiring
•      Electrical connections
•      Main power wiring
•      Detergent signal wiring (probe and probeless modes)
•      Rinse Signal Wiring

NOTE: All electrical connections (except the probe) must be in either the dish machine control circuit panel or
an external junction box. Power cable (Type Y) is not field replaceable.

The dispenser is pre-wired with a multi-conductor electrical cable that must be run through a conduit to the
location where hard-wired connections are made on the dish machine.

Use a 1/2” (13 mm) ID water tight conduit meeting all local and national codes. A threaded fitting is present
on the bottom of the dispenser where the power cable exits to connect a 1/2” conduit fitting.

The probe wire is also pre-wired and should be routed to the probe location and cut to length if a probe is
used.

NOTE: The AC Mains are disconnected from the dispenser when the ON/OFF is in the OFF position. This is a
Type 1.A application.

Probe Wiring

1. Route the probe wire to the probe location. If you need to extend the probe wire, use high quality
   corrosion resistant (waterproof is best) butt splices with a good quality crimping tool.
2. Strip wire ends and crimp on the ring lugs provided.
3. Connect the ring lugs to the probe with nuts and star washers provided. Be sure that connections are tight
   and secure.
4. For optional rinse temperature probe, connect Black and Red wires from probe to internal interface
   terminals Sensor 2, channel 1.
5. Connect Black and Red wires from probe to internal interface terminals Sensor 1, channel 1.
6. For optional tank temperature probe, connect Green and White wires from probe to internal interface
   terminals Sensor 1, channel 2.

Operating Modes
Overview
The Antares allows detergent control using two different modes:
1. Probe Mode—This mode requires a conductivity probe be mounted in the wash tank to measure
   detergent concentration. Detergent is dispensed automatically when measured concentration levels fall
   below the programmed set point.
2. Probeless Mode—No probe is required. An initial charge of detergent is dispensed when the machine
   is filled and upon a specified signal from the dishwasher. Detergent dose is dispensed for a fixed
   programmed time each time.

Rinse control and Rack counts are handled differently for each mode as described below.

Operating Modes: Probe Operation Mode
Detergent Control
In Probe Operating Mode, the controller begins monitoring the conductivity probe to determine detergent
concentration.

The detergent feed is activated as soon as the concentration calculated from the conductivity signal has gone
below the programmed set point and there is a detergent signal present. When the set point is reached the
detergent feed is de-activated.

The detergent signal from the washer should remain on while the wash tank motor is on,
otherwise the detergent feed will not activate. The detergent signal is typically wired to a power source
that is on when wash pump is running.

Low Detergent Alarm
If the conductivity is below the set point and has not increased by 10% within a programmed number of
racks, a visible and audible alarm will be activated. The alarm will sound at the end of each rack until the
conductivity rises by 10%. If the conductivity has not increased by 10% for twice the preset number of racks,
an alarm will be activated and the detergent feed will stop. Operator intervention is required to restart the
detergent feed.

Operating Modes: Probe Operation Mode

Rinse Control
In Probe Operating Mode, rinse signal input controls the rinse output. When the rinse signal is present, the
rinse pump will run at the programmed speed until the rinse signal goes off. This varies depending on the
selected rinse feed option for door machines.

Conveyor Machines
Rack Counts
For conveyor machines, conveyor time is defined as the time it takes to move one rack length. A programmed
conveyor time setting is used to count the number of racks on a conveyor machine. A rack is counted when
the rinse on time equals the programmed conveyor time.

Tank Change Interval
To signal an alarm when it is time to change the tank water, a tank change interval can be used in conjunction
with number of racks run since the initial charge. (In Probe Mode, this will require a separate initial fill signal to
determine the initial charge.)

Rinse Pump
Rinse Saver is not a feature of conveyor machines. Instead, the rinse pump will run continuously as long as
the rinse signal is active. However, the rinse pump will only operate if a detergent signal has occurred within
the previous 90 seconds.

Door Machines
Rack Counts
For door machines, a rack count will be registered each time the rinse signal toggles from Off to On.

Tank Change Interval
To signal an alarm when it is time to change the tank water, a tank change interval can be used in conjunction
with number of racks run since the initial fill.

Rinse Delay Time
A rinse delay of 0-19 seconds can be programmed for door machines. The rinse delay will occur at the
beginning of each rinse signal input.

Rinse Saver
The pump will only be allowed to operate continuously for a maximum of 20 seconds. After 20 seconds, the
rinse signal input must toggle Off and back On again. Please note, this will also cause the rack count to be
incremented

The Rinse Pump will only operate if a detergent signal has occurred within the previous 90 seconds.

Rinse Feed Option
There are two options for the Rinse Pump to activate. Option 1 (Rinse on Rinse) will run the Rinse Pump each
time the Rinse Signal activates (for the duration of time the signal is present). Option 2 (Rinse on Det) will
run the rinse pump for a fixed time of 12 seconds each time the Detergent Signal activates. Please note, the
Detergent Signal must be toggled On/Off for the rinse pump to run again. With each toggle, the rack count
will be incremented.

Pulse Feed
Pulse Feed is used only with capsule-type detergent in Probe Operating Mode. If the conductivity reading is
within the set point by a user-specified percentage, the detergent feed will be cycled On and Off (pulsed) at
a user-selected frequency. Otherwise, the detergent feed will be on continuously. This allows the controller to
gradually reach the set point without overshooting. If it is turned on, the user must choose between one of
seven different fixed options for frequency and percentage with the set point. (For example, if the reading is
within 80% of the set point, the default option is 2 seconds on, 6 seconds off.

Operating Modes: Probeless Operation Mode
Initial Charge
Door Machines
Whenever the dispenser receives a rinse signal that was not preceded by a detergent signal within 90
seconds prior (as in an initial fill), an automatic initial charge occurs. The automatic initial charge consists of
disabling the rinse feed and feeding detergent for the preset amount of time programmed for detergent initial
charge. Normal rinse signal activations within 90 seconds after a detergent signal will not trigger an initial
charge.

A five minute lockout timer begins at the start of the initial charge to prevent additional triggering if multiple
rinse signals are detected during fill.

Alternate Door Machines
An Automatic Initial Charge in a Alternate Door machine occurs each time the dispenser receives a detergent
signal input (with 2 second qualification). The detergent feeds for the programmed time for initial charge.

Conveyor Machines
Each time the dispenser in a conveyor machine receives a detergent signal input (with 3 second qualification)
that remains on for 10 seconds continuously, an automatic initial charge occurs. The detergent feeds for the
programmed time for detergent initial charge.

The rinse pump is locked out during the detergent initial charge if the rinse signal was previously on. When
the initial charge is complete, the rinse pump will not turn back on until the rinse signal is toggled Off
to On.

Because the initial charge will occur each time a detergent signal occurs, the source of the detergent signal
must remain on for the duration of time the tank is full, or must not occur more than one time per machine
fill. If the detergent signal is toggled and qualified for 3 seconds, then continuously on for 10 seconds,
the dispenser will receive another signal. If this happens before the initial charge completes, it will run the
detergent for another initial charge cycle.

The initial charge will run the full charge time regardless if the detergent signal is turned off prior to
completion.

On a conveyor machine, the detergent signal is typically wired to an “on light” or an electrical tank heat on/off
switch. Each time the power source comes on, the dispenser feeds the detergent initial charge amount.

If Manual Initial Charge is selected, there is no automatic initial charge.

Detergent Dose
Door Machines
When the detergent signal on a door machine is activated with (3 second qualification) a detergent dose of a
programmed time will occur once per programmed detergent dose rack interval. The rinse signal must then
activate to run the rinse pump before detergent can run again.

Door Machines with No Rinse Signal on Fill (Alternate Door machines)
If a door machine has no rinse signal upon fill, select this option. In an Alternate Door Type dishwasher
Detergent is dispensed when the Rinse Signal is activated based on the detergent dose interval and detergent
dose time.

Conveyor Machines
On a conveyor machine, a detergent dose of a programmed time will occur when the accumulated Rinse On
signal time reaches the conveyor rack time multiplied by a programmed detergent dose interval (1, 2, or 3
racks). The rinse signal does not need to be toggled off and on for another dose to occur.

Operating Modes: Probeless Operation Mode

Low Detergent Alarm Threshold
A low detergent alarm is available for Probeless Operating Mode if a conductivity probe is installed in the
same manner as for Probe Operating Mode. When the probe is connected, it senses detergent conductivity at
20 different preset threshold values (0-19). Each setting is equivalent to a calibrated conductivity value divided
by 10 (i.e., the default setting of 5 is equal to a conductivity setting of 50). If the conductivity goes below the
setting and remains there without rising at least 10% for a programmed number of racks, a visible and audible
alarm will be activated. The alarms will remain on until the conductivity rises above the threshold point. If the
conductivity has not increased for twice the preset number of racks, an Overfeed Alarm will be activated and
the detergent feed will stop. Operator intervention is required to restart detergent feed.

Rinse Control
In Probeless Operating Mode, rinse signal input controls the rinse output. When the rinse signal is present, the
rinse pump will run at the programmed speed until the rinse signal goes off. This varies depending on the
selected rinse feed option for door machines.

Rack Counts
Door Machines
For door machines, a rack count will be registered each time the rinse signal toggles from Off to On. Door
machines include a rinse feed option which, when set to Rinse on Det, increases the rack count when the
detergent signal toggles from Off to On.

Alternate Door Machines
a rack count will be registered each time the rinse signals toggles from Off to On.

Conveyor Machines
For conveyor machines, conveyor time is defined as the time it takes to move one rack length. A programmed
conveyor time setting is used to count the number of racks on a conveyor machine. A rack is counted when
the rinse on time equals the programmed conveyor time.

Rinse Delay Time (Door Machines Only)
A rinse delay of 0-19 seconds can be programmed for door machines. The rinse delay will occur at the
beginning of each rinse signal input.

Rinse Saver (Door Machines Only)
The pump will only be allowed to operate continuously for a maximum of 20 seconds. After 20 seconds, the
rinse signal input must toggle Off and back On again. Please note, this will also cause the rack count to be
incremented

The Rinse Pump will only operate if a detergent signal has occurred within the previous 90 seconds.

Rinse Feed Option (Door Machines Only)
There are two options for when the Rinse Pump will activate. Option 1 (Rinse on Rinse) will run the Rinse
Pump each time the Rinse Signal activates (for the duration of time the signal is present). Option 2 (Rinse on
Rinse) will run the rinse pump for a fixed time of 12 seconds each time the Detergent Signal activates. Please
note, the Detergent Signal must be toggled On/Off for the rinse pump to run again. With each toggle, the rack
count will be incremented.

Tank Change Interval
To signal an alarm when it is time to change the tank water, a preset tank change interval can be used in
conjunction with accumulated racks since the initial fill.
