Question about Ingersoll Rand Tools & Hardware - Others

Open Question

At our plant compressor the Air Master S1 Controller is installed (Ingersoll Rand IR-S3, 23009848) . I want to access the factory settings of the controller so that i may increase the rated pressure of the compressor. Right now the rated pressure is set at 6.9 bar therefore the loading and unloading set points cannot be increased beyond 7.1 bar.

SOURCE: i have a 5SR EP50SE

The blow down is a normally open valve so there will be no voltage when unloaded. When voltage is applied the blow down valve closes and the load solenoid opens allowing air to the inlet valve which should open. I suspect you have a bad load solenoid. If it leaks by it will keep the inlet valve open to some degree depending on how bad its leaking. If this is an older EP50SE you may have a spring in the bottom of the inlet valve that has broken. then there is not enough pressure to close the inlet valve. These are two common problems with this unit. Also if you look inside the controller panel there should be a wiring diagram. It should show 1SV and 3SV wired together. 1SV is the load solenoid and 3SV is the blow down valve. There is no unload solenoid. There is also a solenoid for line / sump pressure and a modulation solenoid.

I know you have checked voltage. However please remove the fuses for control power and check,also check fu4 and 5 16volt fuses. next check power on the controller input. Don't remember terminal # but if you look in electrical cover removed to gain access, a wiring schematic will be affixed to it. I think it's on j5 terminal 36 110volts. But please check the schematic first. If you have power at the input terminal I suspect the controller is bad but continue with the following checks. If no power at terminal 36 check the hat (High Air Temperature) switch. Its located on the end of the airend and about 1/2 inch flex connected.If the hat switch is good check the emergency stop contacts. Note the power lite picks up voltage before the emergency stop and hat switch. So even though the lite is on one of these switches may be bad.

OK, Compressor should be shut down and showing (ready to start) in display. Press load/unload button once then press hidden right button within 3 seconds. This will let you access the set point program. It will include language, temperature and pressure, rated pressure,etc. Make sure you look at the data tag affixed to the unit and see what the rated pressure is for your unit. You can endanger yourself and equipment by over pressurizing the components of the compressor.
