The Raven DCS 400 is designed to improve the uniformity of liquid de-ice applications. Its performance relies on the installation and preventive maintenance of the complete system. It is important that this Installation and Service Manual be reviewed thoroughly before operating the system. This manual provides a simple step-by-step procedure for installing and operating. The DCS 400 system consists of a computer-based control Console, a Speed Sensor, a turbine type Flow Meter and a motorized Control Valve. The Console mounts directly in the cab of the vehicle for easy operator use. The Speed Sensor is mounted on the vehicle. (Other Speedometer Speed Sensors also available). The motorized Control Valve and Flow Meter mount to the vehicle framework. Appropriate cabling is furnished for field installation. The operator sets the target volume per area to be applied and the DCS 400 automatically maintains the flow regardless of vehicle speed. A manual override switch allows the operator to manually control flow for system check-out and spot application. Actual volume per area being applied is displayed at all times. The DCS 400 additionally functions as an area or distance monitor, speed monitor, and volume totalizer.
