VERNON MANUFACTURING RECOMMENDS THAT A QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN PERFORM THIS WORK.  ALL MACHINES SHOULD BE INSTALLED USING A DEDICATED CIRCUIT AND SURGE PROTECTION IN ACCORDANCE WITH ALL FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL BUILDING CODES.  CHANGES IN WIRING OR OBVIOUS SHORTING WILL VOID WARRANTY.


Since each application is different, mounting hardware is not furnished and the following are general instructions only.  Your application will dictate the parameters and hardware needed.  Please follow your local codes for any electrical or plumbing installations.


If your Streetside Box will be free standing, we recommend using ready-made supports; angle iron; or square tubing embedded in concrete for support posts.  Remove the plastic plugs from the back of the box or drill new holes as needed.  Use 1/2” carriage bolts with washers and nuts to mount the box to your supports.  The box may also be bolted to the side of an existing building.  An awning, or similar cover, over the box will help keep out moisture and keep customers dry.


No holes have been drilled for wiring.  Your electrician will determine what is best for your installation.  Bring the power wires in and crimp the furnished forked wire ends to these wires.  Connect under the bottom terminal strip positions 1 and 2.  The valve wires connect under to positions 6 and 7.  If your system has 2 valves, position 8 is also used.  Locate the ground lug in the lower left corner of the backing plate.


Install the valve in your water line either horizontal or vertical.  It is marked for direction of flow.  Protect it from freezing.  A gate valve (not furnished) mounted ahead of the water valve aids in cleaning and repair.  Install the piping, valves, drains, back flow preventers and other devices in accordance with local codes.  PLEASE NOTE:  The open hole under the diaphragm must be open to air—DO NOT PLUG THIS HOLE.


Key Switch Override:  If so equipped, city and fire personnel can bypass the controls and obtain water without using money. Insert the key and turn.  It is labeled “CITY USE ONLY”.


Automatic Drain:  If so equipped, tie both solenoids in parallel and follow the valve installation instructions shown above.  Secure the green ground wires from the solenoid(s) under a bolt on the valve.  


Choice Switch:  If so equipped, bring the black wires from the different valves in to the designated positions on the power strip.  At the valves, tie all red (neutral) wires together and bring only one wire to the labeled power strip position.  NOTE:  Some machines are equipped with two timers for different size valves.  Bring the valve wires in to the indicated terminal position.


Except for incoming power and wires to the valve(s), no other internal wiring is necessary.  Refer to the wiring sticker in the box.


To set the timer to deliver the amount of water you want to sell, follow the instructions on the Timer Settings sheet.
