1.INTRODUCTION

1.1General Information for CONVOTHERM PC-HACCPand CONVOTHERMPC-CONTROL

CONVOTHERM PC-HACCPand CONVOTHERMPC-CONTROL

The PC uses the PC-HACCPsoftware to communicate with the Combi or Combis.

The PC-HACCPsoftware must be started on the PC before thePC-Controlsoftware can work.

CONVOTHERM PC-HACCP

The Convotherm PC-HACCPsoftware automatically records all processes run on Convotherm Combis and stores them for HACCP monitoring.

After cooking, the HACCP data is stored and can be graphed for review.

CONVOTHERM PC-CONTROL

The Convotherm PC-Controlsoftware can store up to 250 recipes. The recipes can be transferred to all your networked Combis in seconds.

Recipes can be deleted, copied, or changed as needed.

Stored recipes and functions including Cook & Hold, Delta-TCooking, reduced fan speed, reduced power, Crisp ‘n’ Tasty, and security can be programmed with HACCP criteria and monitored with the ConvothermPC-HACCPsoftware.

1.2 System Requirements

Hardware

Convotherm oven single installation:

All Combi models require ST 5000 V2.20 software.

Convotherm oven network installation:

All Combi models require ST 5000 V2.20 software.

All Combi models require a Communication Module Kit.

Computer Hardware:

IBM compatible PC with a 486 MHz or faster processor.

RS232/V24 serial port.

Windows 95 or higher.

CD-ROMdrive.

10 MB free storage on the hard drive.

2.1.3 Setting the Network Address on the Combi Ovens

Address 1 is factory set on all Combis.

To connect more Combis to the PC, the Addresses must be changed to 2, 3, 4, etc.

No change is needed to work with only one Combi.

On the Combi Control Panel:

7.Switch the Combi OFF and then back ON.

2.1.4 Log On and Off Combis in CONVOTHERM PC-HACCP

All Combis connected to the PC must be logged on to the CONVOTHERM PC-HACCPsoftware.

Each Combi needs an individual network address (number) and a name.

When the Combis are logged on, they are displayed on the screen with a symbol and a name and change to a light color.

The network address assigned during log on must match the address set on the Combi. (Continued on next page.)

2.3 Assigning HACCP Criteria to Programs (Recipes)

Each Combi can store up to 250 Programs (recipes).

CONVOTHERM PC-HACCPsoftware can manageonly 250 Programs with up to 9 steps in each.

The same recipes must match the same number in all the networked Combis. (For example, "grill chicken" is Program number 5 in all the networked Combis).

Different Programs can be stored in networked Combis.

Do not use the same number for different Programs. Instead, use the same number for the same Program in ALL the networked Combis for a maximum of 250 Program numbers.

In the CONVOTHERM PC-HACCPsoftware, HACCP criteria can be allocated using these Program numbers.

These criteria are used to check every Program when it is started on a Combi.

1.Start the CONVOTHERM PC-HACCPsoftware.

2.Click Program.

3.Click Program list.

NOTE: Steps 4 and 5 are not necessary if the Program was created using PC-Controland a name is already allocated. If so, go to Step 6.

4.Select the Program number (Prog. No.) in the list on the left.

5.Enter the Program name.

6.Enter the HACCP criteria:

3.2.4 Delta-TCooking, Cook&Hold

Delta-Tand Cook&Hold are programmable with the CONVOTHERMPC-Controlsoftware.

Delta-TCooking

Delta-Tcooking with hot air requires use of Core Temperature since the cooking compartment temperature rises depending on the measured actual core temperature.

The cooking compartment temperature should always be higher than the core temperature by the Delta temperature.

The Timer cannot be used in Delta-Tmode.

1.In the Programming window, select theDelta-TCooking operating mode by clicking theDelta-Ticon.

2.Adjust the Delta-Temperaturewith the arrow keys or input the desired value in the field.

3.Adjust the desired core temperature with the arrow keys or input the desired value in the field.

Cook&Hold

Cook&Hold Programs automatically switch from the Cook phase to the Hold phase when the set Time or Core Temperature is reached.

Select Hold Temperature so the cooking compartment temperature and the actual core temperature meet at the desired Hold Temperature (Hold Temperature = Core Temperature) to prevent over cooking.

During the Hold phase, the Combi fan cycles with hot air and the time is automatically set to continuous.

1.Select the operating mode of the first step in the Programming window.

2.Set the temperature (preferably between 120°C and 150°C).

3.Select the Time or Core Temperature for the switchover from Cook to Hold (Hold Temperature = Core Temperature).

4.Press the New Step button for Hold phase entry.

5.Select Cook&Hold mode.

6.Accept the suggested hold temperature or if required, change the default values with the arrow keys or enter new values in the fields.
