    IC-40 Communication Lost, but functioning properly

    Well, as I said, it surely makes sense to me that the output percentage be taken into consideration to calculate Cell hours, but the Pentair "expert" said I had that wrong. I asked twice to ensure there was no misunderstanding. Sounds like they may have given me bad info.

    IC-40 Communication Lost, but functioning properly

    I called Pentair. First I spoke with an Automation guy, who had me move Comm connections around to troubleshoot the cable. I had already done this over the weekend, and also done continuity tests across all the Comm terminals. Comm ports seem fine. Next, I spoke with an IntelliChlor person...

    IC-40 Communication Lost, but functioning properly

    HI Jim, Yes, the IC-40 is enabled on the Screenlogic configuration. The IC-40 is about 7 years old. I take it inside every year when not in use. My surge card (how does it get that name?) wiring doesn't look disturbed. I am the only one who's been inside the load center since installation. I...

    IC-40 Communication Lost, but functioning properly

    Jim, Thank for the responses. Yes, I have an IntelliFlo Variable Flow. It says Display Not Active, as expected, since IntelliTouch is in the normal "auto" mode, not "service" or "time out." Everything else about the installation is working normally. This system is about 7 years old. Also, I...

    IC-40 Communication Lost, but functioning properly

    No, sorry, I forgot to mention that. I tried various setting on Screenlogic, such as different chlorination percentages and super-chlorination. The IC-40 does not respond and Screenlogic eventually resets to showing 0%.

    More ScreenLogic help please

    Yes, I have a Pool/Spa combo. (Note I'm not the OP, but I thought this was an on topic question.) Do you think if I assigned the Freeze Circuit, it would override the Pool/Spa RPMs when they turned "on with freeze"?

    More ScreenLogic help please

    Moved from here.. ScreenLogic help please Jim - under what scenario would one use the "Freeze" circuit under the "IntelliFlo (step 4 of 5)" configuration page? In a pool/spa combo, if "on with freeze" is selected for both the pool and spa circuits on the step 2 page, then these circuits would...

    Heater no longer controlled by Pentair automation system

    I have been supporting for several years with test chemical purchases, but I will look at stepping it up a bit. You guys saved me a lot on this one, so it's fair that I apply some of that.

    Heater no longer controlled by Pentair automation system

    Never mind about the heater. That "128 r13" isn't an error code, but some kind of version info, such as software or firmware. I simply had to wait a bit longer, then hit the pool or spa switch, and the heater fired up. (I had tried the manual buttons earlier, but I guess didn't wait long...

    Heater no longer controlled by Pentair automation system

    Thanks Tom. I installed one of the other ICs in U13 and the relay is behaving as expected! However, the heater is not. When the i9 powers up, the heater is no longer coming on immediately (as expected), but when the i9 calls for the heater, here is what happens: the heater shows lights for...

    Heater no longer controlled by Pentair automation system

    I didn't see a reference to a source or part number for the driver chips. Do you have that? These socketed driver chips must be on the main board and visible after removing the upper board, right? My protocol adapter was hardwired. I have had so many issues with those over the past 8 years...

    Heater no longer controlled by Pentair automation system

    Jim, With power off, and heater disconnected from J30, I have an open circuit. With power on, but no equipment running and no heater demand, I have a closed circuit. Based on the discussion in the other thread, I was expecting (a failed) relay driver to always have the relay either closed or...

    Heater no longer controlled by Pentair automation system

    Thanks for the thread reference! That sounds like almost my same scenario! Sorry, I usually do a better job of searching. I thought this was going to be a fairly unique scenario, silly me. I haven't checked the Intellibrite lights yet - I will do that this evening. But I also lost the...

    Heater no longer controlled by Pentair automation system

    Issue Heater is running in manual mode following power surge and storms/lightening in the area. I believe I had a power surge that may have damaged either my heater control board or i9 control board. Stuck my hand in the pool and was surprised it was 90 F. Checked automation system and heater...
