Troubleshooting Tips
No. 18 - Installing PIcon-K Progressive International Console with Kraus Micon & MTI (D&H) EQ30 or EL6.0 Heads - Issues

We have discovered a number of conditions where the PIcon Console will not work or work correctly with both Kraus Micon Heads and MTI (D&H) EQ30 Heads. We will deal with each of these below:

Kraus Micon Heads

Micon 100
SKIL 152 A15 Board and must have version DANPMP3.1 or DANPMP3.2 Software.
SKIL 421 boards must have version V7.03 Software.
Micon 200
SKIL 252 Boards must have version V6.3 Software. Note! Will not work on two tier pricing!
SKIL 350 Boards must have version V7.03 or V1.09 Software. Note! Will not work on two tier pricing!
Micon 500
Units must have version V1.33 Software and be equipped with the optional piggyback SKIL 472 MNET Interface Board to provide serial interface. Note! Will not work on two tier pricing!
MTI (D&H EQ30 Heads
CPU Board
Must have version V1.42 Software in order for shift reports to function properly.

MTI EQ30 Power Supply

Must be Revision 3 or 4 or a "Modified" Revision 1 or 2 board are required for Kraus MNET communication.

All boards show revision 2 on the front of the board and the actual Revision number is only marked on the rear of the board. Therefore for quick identification refer to Figure 1. Once you have established that you have a Revision 1 or 2 Board you will have to remove it from the Explosion Proof housing to determine if it is modified. Modified version 1 or 2 boards will have a transistor and 2 resistors soldered to the back of the board behind the Microprocessor U1.

If R8 is 30K (Orange/Black/Orange Bands or check with ohmmeter) needs to be 1.0K (Brown/Black/Red Bands)
If R9 is 30K (Orange/Black/Orange Bands or check with ohmmeter) needs to be 1.0K (Brown/Black/Red Bands)

MTI EL6.0 Power Supply

If R24 is 30K (surface mount check with ohmmeter) needs to be 1.0K
If R25 is 30K (surface mount check with ohmmeter) needs to be 1.0K

Note! If the above Power supplies are 30K you will need to change them. We have a special exchange price on these provided nothing else is wrong with the Power Supply. Contact us immediately!


Revision 1 and 2 IB


Revision 3 IB

Figure 1

Wiring to the C2000K is also different for the Various Revisions:

Com 1 (Red 22 Ga) #11 = DCC (Data Channel Common)
Com 2 (Blk 22 Ga) #12 = TTP (Transmit to Pump)
Com 3 (Grn 22Ga) #13 = TTC (Transmit to Console)
Revision 4 with JP1 Removed:
Com 1 (Red 22Ga) #11 = DCC (Data Channel Common)
Com 2 (Blk 22 Ga) #12 = TTP (Transmit to Pump)
Com 4 (Yel 22Ga) # 1 = TTC (Transmit to Console)
For All Power Supplies Jumpers JP4 and JP5 must be set as follows:
