VERNON MANUFACTURING RECOMMENDS THAT A QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN PERFORM THIS WORK.  ALL MACHINES SHOULD BE INSTALLED USING A DEDICATED CIRCUIT AND SURGE PROTECTION IN ACCORDANCE WITH ALL FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL BUILDING CODES.  CHANGES IN WIRING OR OBVIOUS SHORTING WILL VOID WARRANTY.


Since each application is different, mounting hardware is not furnished and the following are general instructions only.  Your application will dictate the parameters and hardware needed.  Please follow your local codes for any electrical or plumbing installations.


If your Streetside Box will be free standing, we recommend using ready-made supports; angle iron; or square tubing embedded in concrete for the posts.  Remove the plastic plugs from the back of the box or drill new holes as needed.  Use 1/2” carriage bolts with washers and nuts to mount the box to your supports.  The box may also be bolted to the side of an existing building.  An awning, or similar cover, over the box will help keep out moisture and keep customers dry.


No power cord is furnished, and no holes have been drilled for power or valve wiring.  Your electrician will determine what is best for your installation and hard wire the connections.  Bring incoming and valve power wires to the bottom terminal block as indicated on the wiring sticker.  Forked wire ends are furnished.  Locate the ground lug in the lower left corner of the backing plate.  If your unit is equipped with a credit card reader, the stub antenna is loose and taped to the box fir shipping.  Be sure to use the included rubber seal between the antenna and box.  Secure it with the locking nut and finish by checking the antenna cable connection to the Amit modem.  It should be snug but not overly tight.  


Bring the wires from the solenoid valve(s) in to the bottom terminal strip through holes determined by your electrician.  Connect them to the corresponding positions (#6) and (#7) on the bottom strip.  At the valves, tie all wires together COLOR TO COLOR and bring only one wire to the terminal strip.  Crimp the forked wire ends to the wires and secure to the terminal strip.  


Key Switch Override:  If so equipped, city personnel can obtain water without having to use money.  Simply insert the key and turn.  It is labeled “CITY USE ONLY”.


Automatic Drain:  If so equipped, tie both solenoids in parallel and follow the valve installation instructions shown above.  Secure the green ground wires from the solenoid(s) under a bolt on the valve.  


Choice Switch:  If so equipped, bring the black wires from the different valves in to the designated positions on the terminal strip as explained above.  At the valves, tie all red (neutral) wires together and bring only one wire to the terminal strip.  NOTE:  Some machines are equipped with two timers for different size valves.  Bring the valve wires in to the indicated terminal position.


Except for incoming power and wires to the valve(s), no other internal wiring is necessary.  All of your incoming wires will connect to the bottom terminal strip and grounding lug.


To set the timer to deliver the amount of water you want to sell, follow the instructions on the Timer Settings sheet.
