FIRE PLACE IGNITORS at Vinton
Pilot light ignitors come in left and right
side feed. For Vinton, must have unit with orientation shown in green,
and bracket needs stright (not 90 degree) mounting.

HOT WATER HEATER
operation (Basically the same for Jasmine and Vinton)
Solar Hot Water
panels on the roof heat water which is then circulated by a pump
through two heat exchanger tanks located in the laundry room.
water in the heat exchanger tanks is fed into the gas hot water heater
as needed to supply hot water to the building. The fluid
circulating through the solar panels and the heat exchangers does not
mix with the City water.
Vx Hot Water Heating System
There are numerous valves to allow servicing of the hot water system.
Those valves with green tape are normally open. Those valves with red
tape are normally closed. On the wall to the right of the window
are three switches and a time clock:
- Turns the power ON/OFF to the hot water heater and the solar pumps/controller
- Turns the power ON/OFF to the circulation pump. When hot water is turned off, it must be turned off.
- Allows the circulation pump thermostat to be bypassed. When in the ON position (down), the pump runs continuously.
- The time clock is supposed to be set so the circulation pump runs
in the prime morning and eventing hours OR when commanded by the
circulation pump thermostat.
The sequence of operations for heating hot water is as
(1) Thermostat calls for heat and commands flue vent damper
open. (2) Flue vent opens and sends power to igniter. (3) Ignitor spark
lights pilot flame. When pilot flame ignition is sensed, power is sent
to open main gas value.

Operation - Vinton
Battery back-ups mean the gates can open even when there is
no utility power to the building.
Operators - Vinton
- Garage Gate Remote Control Transmitter Settings Gate Operation
- Inverters have been installed to power the front and back
gates from 12
Volt batteries in the case of a failure of utlity power. The
location and configuration of the inverters are shown in Back
Up Power Component Locations.There
used to be two inverters, one for the older Elite Operators
on the rear gate, and a new "sine-wave" inverter for the All-O-Matic
operator on the front gate. In September 2014, the system was
reconfigured to have the Xantrex inverter power both gates from a
single 12 V sealed battery with a Model 2012 BatteryMINDer
- Instructions for switching over the rear gates to the
back-up power supplies in the event of a power failure are shown in: Rear
Gate Controls .
- Instructions for switching over the front gates to the
back-up power supplies in the event of a power failure are shown in V0-FrontGateOp Controls.jpg
- Installation of an automatic cross-over switch is planned for
Jan. 2016; when installed, it will automatically switch gate operators
back to utility power when utility power is restored.
- The connection details for the power inverters are shown
- There is now only one
power inverter and one battery. The switch connect another
backup battery has been disconnected. The invertert is
typically left on 24/7. When on it alternatively indicates battery
voltage and load. The battern voltage should be about 13.4 volts.
It has suffucient capacity to power both gates at the same time
provided that their opening is not initiated simultaneously; in that
case, the circuit breaker on the inverter will pop.
there is a conflict between what is shown on this web site and
instructions posted on the wall next to the switches, follow the posted
Key to open lock on alley side operator is key with red tape.
Chain is ANSI #41, pitch 1/2 inch, roller width 1/4 inch. Approximately 24 feet of chain needed on each side
To disassemble & reassemble use special deep
socket tools in the storage cabinet.. Make sure power is off.
Operation - Jasmine
At Jasmine Front gate, push the "buzzer" button to sound tone in apartment.
Note gate latch has a silent release.
At Jasmine Rear gate, press the buttons in the code
sequence. Note gate latch has a silent release. press last button again
to repeat release.
PEDESTRIAN GATE & DIRECTORY DIALER Operation - Vinton - 2015 Update
DoorKing dialer is best programed from a telephone
by calling into the unit following DK 1810 instructions intentionally
not presented here.
DoorKing dialer connects to the telephone network via twisted pair to
telephone connection box and from there back up to location of Vonage
Tenants are to, push 9 on telephone when
