Manta APC 3Central Vacuum CleanerInstructions for Use andMaintenance

2 USING THE MANTA CENTRAL VACUUM CLEANER2.1 Operating Modes of the Central UnitMain SwitchIn order to start the system, the main switch must be turned to position1 (figure 3; 2). When the system is left unused for long periods of time,the main switch of the frequency converter should be turned to position0 (figure 3; 2).010TESTOperating SwitchAUTOThe operating switch (figure 3; 3) is used to select the operating modeof the central unit.0 = maintenance modeWhen the switch is set on mode 0, the central unit will not start butthe motor is live although not rotating. Always switch to this modewhen- Emptying the dust canister- Servicing the filter- Standby mode is not desiredTEST = test mode- Reset mode for testing the functioning of the central unitAUTO = standby mode- Standby for normal use. The central unit starts when a wall inlet isopened.Figure 323Always turn the main switch to position 0 and disconnect thecentral unit from the mains by unplugging the three-phase plugfrom the socket when servicing the electric parts of the unit.2.2 Using the Central Vacuum Cleaning SystemThe central unit can be started as described above whenever thecentral unit is on standby mode (see 2.1). Some strength is requiredfor opening the wall inlets if another user has already connected tothe central unit.With a system designed for multiple cleaners, always ensure that thecleaning areas are divided so as to provide sufficient suction power forall suction lines and to ensure that all vacuumed material is sucked intothe central unit (see figure 4). Keeping wall inlets open unnecessarilyleads to reduced suction power in the other suction lines. No risk ofdamage is posed to the central unit even when more than one wallinlet is open simultaneously but the suction power in the nozzle issignificantly reduced and the ability for heavy particles (stones etc.) to Figure 4be sucked into the central unit is decreased, resulting in an increasedrisk of blockage.Sticky substances and large shards of glass may cause blockages in the pipe system. The central vacuum cleanermust not be used for vacuuming liquids without an appropriate pre-separator. The wall inlets are equipped with catchersthat stop large particles from entering the pipe system; longitudinal objects are caught in the elbow couplings of thewall inlets, where they can then be easily removed.2.3 MANTA APC 3 Frequency ConverterAPC (Automatic Power Control) adjusts the power of the vacuum cleaner automatically, as the number of cleanersconnected to the system changes.The control unit detects a change when more than one wall inlet is open and increases the revolution speed of themotor to allow sufficient suction power to all cleaners. Three wall inlets can be in use simultaneously, as outlined insection 2.2. As the number of simultaneous cleaners decreases, the revolution speed drops to correspond to thenumber of inlets in use.5

When the PRESET modes are in use, the motor of thecentral unit will rotate at a constant speed thus overridingthe automatic power control. The PRESET modes areideal for situations, such as that described in the followingexample:Example:The preset revolution speeds are ideal for solvingsituations such as shown in figure 5.The cleaning area nearest to the central unit (area A) isgoverned by APC.The areas that are further away (areas B and C) aregoverned by preset revolution modes (PRESET 1 andPRESET 2). The frequency converter provides a frequencyof 58 Hz separately for each preset line. If both preset linesare in use simultaneously, the unit increases the suctionpower by upping the frequency to 64 Hz.Figure 5Area A can accommodate up to three simultaneous cleaners provided that each has a personal suction line and thatno wall inlets are open in areas B and C. Areas B and C can both accommodate one cleaner at the same time whenno one is using the vacuum cleaner in area A. If the system is in use in area A at the same time with cleaners in areasB and/or C, the suction power in areas B and/or C may become inadequate.A separate low voltage lead runs to the central unit from each cleaning area (figure 5).2.3.1 Frequency Converter Keypad= Scroll UpBrowse the main menu and the sub-menusAdjust parameters= Scroll DownBrowse the main menu and the sub-menusAdjust parameters= Menu LeftGo back in menuMove cursor to the left (in the parameter menu)Exit parameter adjusting modeReturn to main menu by pressing for 2-3secondsresetselectenter= Menu RightGo forward in menuMove cursor to the right (in the parametermenu)Accept parameter adjusting mode= Reset active faults= Examine two last-used displays in turn= Enter1.

Prior to contacting the Allaway service dealer, record allerror messages that have appeared on the keypad display and prepare to describe how the faultdemonstrates itself in practice.The frequency converter, the electric motor, the side channel blower and other electric componentshave no parts that can be serviced by the user. If a fault occurs, disconnect the unit from the mainsand contact an authorised Allaway service dealer8

2.4 Cleaning the ProductsThe cleaning products are subject to wear, depending on the frequency of use and the material of the floor, and theymust be replaced if necessary. The life of the cleaning products can be significantly lengthened if the products arecleaned of the accumulated dirt after each use, and stored appropriately.After vacuuming, detach the telescopic wand and the nozzles from the handle and store them separately with thebristles of the floor/carpet nozzle drawn in. Store the hose in the designated stand.Avoid storing the cleaning products in direct sunlight, as long-term exposure to UV irradiation makes the plastic parts,and the hose in particular, become brittle thus shortening their life.2.5 Cleaning the Filter and Replacing the Dust BagThe level of fullness of the dust canister must be monitored regularly,replacing a full bag with an empty one before the contents of the bag exceedthe volume of the canister. To replace the dust bag:A• Turn the operating switch to mode 0 (figure 3).• Turn the filter shake lever (figure 6; A) located on the side of the centralunit firmly a few times.• Wait for the dust to settle in the bag.• Release the lock lever (B) of the dust canister and bring it down to enablethe removal of the dust canister from the central unit.• Remove the full dust bag from the canister and check that no particlesare left at the bottom of the canister or in the down draft opening. Clean thelifting plate (C) of the dust canister and ensure that the grating at the bottomof the dust canister is clean and correctly positioned.• Insert a new, intact dust bag carefully into the canister, folding the edgesof the bag over the side of the canister (figures 7 and 8).• Insert the canister and the bag into the central unit and bring the locklever of the dust canister up.• Turn the operating switch to the AUTO mode.CFigure 6Figure 7BThe central unit must not be used without a dust bag! Only Allawaydust bags, product number 18092, should be used.3 MAINTENANCEFigure 8The operating switch must always be turned to mode 0 when emptying the dust canister and cleaning the filter (section3.1), or when other components are being serviced, and the vacuum inside the pipe system must be released bymeans of opening a wall inlet.Avoid touching the motor or side channel blower at the back of the unit. Their temperature may be as highas 80°C.The electric motor, the side channel blower and other electric components have no parts that canbe serviced by the user. If a fault occurs, disconnect the unit from the mains by unplugging thethree-phase plug from the socket, and contact an authorised Allaway service dealer.10

3.1 Washing and Replacing the FilterThe filter of the central unit should be washed or replaced if the suction powerdrops, or once the dust canister has been emptied 20-30 times.The filter can be washed at 40°C using normal detergent. The majority ofdirt is rinsed off before the actual wash. After the wash while the filter isstill slightly damp, it is brushed smooth. The filter must be completely drybefore reinserting in the central unit. The filter can be tumble-dried at lowtemperatures.The filter usually withstands 5-8 washes. Always check the filter for any damageafter a wash; replace the filter if any wear and tear can be detected.Only Allaway filters, product number 18028, must be used.EDFigure 9To replace or wash the filter:• Turn the operating switch to mode 0.• Shake the dust off the filter and empty the dust canister as outlined insection 2.5.FG• Remove the eye nut (D) on top of the central unit and lift off the cap (E)(figure 9).• Remove the eye nuts (F) on the side of the central unit and undo the hosetightener (G) behind the central unit (figure 10).• Lift out the filter chamber (H) (figure 11).Figure 10H• Remove the tightening collar of the filter (figure 11; I).• Undo the strings that secure the filter in place (figure 12; J).• Replace or wash the filter as instructed.• Clean the surfaces of the filter chamber and the tightening collar.• Reassemble in reverse order.Tighten the filter so that you feel a small cyclical resistance when turningthe shake lever (A). Ensure that the tightening collar of the filter is tight. Ifnecessary, replace the tightening collar with a new one.• Turn the operating switch to AUTO mode.Other cleaning methods may damage the filter and cause faults inthe functioning of the unit.Figure 11AIIf the central unit has been in operation while a damaged ordefectively positioned filter has been inside the unit, alwayscall for an authorised Allaway service dealer to inspect thesystemFigure 12J11

3.2 Servicing the Down Draft FilterThe Allaway Manta central units are equipped with a down draft system thatensures that the dust bag remains in its place inside the central unit. If thedust bag will not spay in place (drifts up), first release the vacuum inside thepipe system by opening a wall inlet, and then check the following:• The dust bag must be intact and correctly positioned inside the dustcanister.• No particles must be left between the edge of the dust canister and thetapered part of the central unit.• The sealing materials at the top and bottom of the dust canister must beintact and appropriately positioned.KFigure 13L• The grating at the bottom of the dust canister must be intact, clean andcorrectly positioned.MIf all of the above are as should be and the dust bag still will not stay in placeinside the dust canister, the down draft system of the central unit must becleaned as follows:• Turn the operating switch to mode 0.• Undo the hexagonal screw (L) of the down draft filter (K) (figure 13).• Remove the filter (M) and the filter cup (N) and clean them (figure 14).• Detach the process hose (O) and clean it and other related parts as wellas the duct in the lifting plate of the dust canister using compressed air or ametal wire, for example.• Reassemble.OFigure 14NWe recommend that the central vacuum cleaning system be subject to regular inspections by anauthorised Allaway service dealer in order to ensure uninterrupted functioning. Contact details forauthorised Allaway service dealers are available at USEFUL TIPS4.1 What to Do if the Central Unit Will Not Start• Check that the main switch of the central unit is set to 1 and that the operating switch is in AUTO mode.• Check whether the central unit can be started from one of the other wall inlets in accordance with the startsystem.• If the central unit starts when the operating switch is in the TEST mode but not when an inlet is opened, check thatthe low-voltage plug is correctly connected to the start circuits of the wall inlets.4.2 What to Do if Suction Power Has Dropped• Check that there are no objects in the pipe system that could obstruct flow.• Check that the suction hose is intact and that no objects that could obstruct flow are stuck to it.• Check that all other wall inlets are closed and that they do not leak.• Check that the pipe system is airtight.·• Check that the dust canister is not full.12

• Check that the filter is in good condition.• Check that the dust canister is correctly positioned and that the sealing materials of the dust canister are intact.4.3 What to Do if the Pipe System Is Blocked• Replace the dust bag as outlined in section 2.5.• Check that no dampers have tripped inside the outlet pipe and that there are no other blockages.• Check the pipe system for blockages by sucking strips of kitchen paper through the wall inlets. If the strips of paperend up in the dust bag, that stretch of the pipe system is intact. If you find a blockage, detach the collector pipe from thesuction coupling of the central unit. Use another powerful vacuum cleaner to suck at the wall inlets of the blockedsuction line.·• If the blockage cannot be dislodged through suction and you are able to pinpoint its location, it is worth examiningwhether the pipe system is easily accessible without having to dismantle too much of the structure. If the pipe systemis accessible, the blockage can usually be removed by opening a pipe joint.Never use overpressure, such as compressed air, to try unblocking the pipe system, as overpressure willcause the pipe joints to become undone!• If none of the measures described above are successful in unblocking the pipe system, contact an authorisedAllaway service dealer.4.4 What to Do if the Pipe System LeaksStart the central unit while all wall inlets are closed and with the operating switch set on TEST. The output frequencyshould settle on 40±2 Hz.If the frequency remains higher, there is a leak in the pipe system. Locate the leak and repair.5 INFORMATION PERTAINING TO THE CENTRAL UNIT5.1 Technical SpecificationsMANTA APC 3 - 3 (Automatic Power Control)Nominal Power max.4.0-7.5 kWElectrical Connection400 V 16 A 3-phase plug / 16 A forward fusesCasing ClassIP34Turbine Overheat Protector 80°CMaximum Airflow (Turbine Measurements) 178 l/s (640 m³ / h)Maximum Vacuum (Turbine Measurements) 33 kPaHeightWidthDepthWeightNoise Level ± 2 dB(measurement taken in an echo-free spacefrom a distance of 1 m, at a height of 1 mfrom straight in front of the unit)Dust CanisterSuction Hose1965 mm800 mm650 mm163 kg75 dB (A)34 litres8 or 10 metresMaximum Reach Automatic Preset- 1 Cleaner 80 metres 100 metres- 2 Cleaners 70 metres 80 metres- 3 Cleaners 60 metres -13
