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 or square tubing embedded in concrete for the 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 power cord is furnished, and no holes have been drilled for power or valve wiring. Your electrician will determine what is best for your installation. Bring incoming power and valve power wires to the bottom terminal block as indicated on the wiring sticker. Forked wire ends are furnished. Locate the ground lug in the lower left corner of the backing plate. If your unit is equipped with a credit card reader, the stub antenna is loose and taped to the box for shipping. Be sure to use the included rubber seal between the antenna and box. Secure it with the locking nut and finish by checking the antenna cable connection to the Amit modem. It should be snug but not overly tight.
Install the valve in your water line either horizontal or vertical. Flow direction is marked. 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.
At the valve, tie the black wires, and red wires, from each solenoid together in parallel. Bring only one wire per color to the bottom terminal strip. Crimp the forked wire ends on and connect them to the corresponding black (#6) and red (#7) positions on the terminal strip. See the wiring sticker.
Card Reader: If so equipped, be sure the rubber seal is between the antenna and box. The wire is threaded through the hole. Secure the antenna with the locking nut. Tighten the antenna wire to the AMIT modem FINGER TIGHT ONLY. Download this program to manage your card accounts. If you have problems, call and I will email you this link.
