PulseRam® Vacuum Circuit Boards
For the optimum performance of dust free tile removal, the filters need to be kept as clean as possible. Stock *CDCLarue *PulseBac® circuit boards do not address the stresses and difficulty when encountering extended periods of use, and the need for much quicker pulses to help keep the filters clean.
Please note: This circuit board fits any of the *Pulse-Bac® 1000 Series vacuums.
Vacuums working to remove thinset, saltillo, travertine, and other difficult materials often need to work harder and longer to get the job done, so the circuit board and associated hardware also need to be up to the task.
The amount of debris and dust generated from these types of demanding projects is typically far more excessive than just simple tasks such as grinding or polishing concrete. The components and software of a PulseRam® Circuit Board are designed to help a Pulse-Bac® self-cleaning vacuum perform at its best.
If considering the purchase of the PulseRam circuit board, some common sense will need to apply to have the best experience with your vacuum as noted below:
- Your current vacuum must already be maintained adequately and have been receiving normal and ongoing maintenance.
- The wiring harnesses leading to and from the circuit boards must be in good shape and show NO signs of over-heating or burnt connectors. DustRam, LLC has a complete selection of upgraded 12 gauge wire harnesses with Deutsch® plugs and connectors to replace your worn, burned and faulty PulseBac® wire harnesses.
- Using 10 gauge extension cords with a functioning ground connector is a must. Un-grounded extension cords or those with a broken ground connector is a recipe for burned fuses and/or your circuit board.
- The plugs and connectors of your extensions cords must firmly connect and disconnect to the vacuum/wall receptacle. Old extension cords may have had hundreds or even thousands of insertions/de-insertions over time, and the loose connections can cause arcing and voltage surges; all of these can cause issues to the circuit board and/or the fuses. Consider rebuilding your old extension cords with new plugs and connectors purchased from Lowes.
- Included with your new circuit board will be a small packet of dielectric silicone compound. Use a Q-tip swab to apply a light film on the spades of the new circuit board before attaching the solenoid and power connectors. This will help guard against corrosion between the wires and circuit boards. Remember, corrosion can also cause increased resistance, heat and eventual burning of any connections to and from the circuit board.
- Be sure the connectors that attach to the spades of the circuit board connect firmly. If necessary, BEFORE attaching to the circuit board using a small pair of needle-nose pliers to slightly close the gap of each connector so that it requires firm pressure to slide over the circuit board spade. If the connector pushes on easily and comes off easily then you must readjust the connector clearance to allow it to firmly attach. Loose connectors cause arcing, burned wires/connectors and voltage surges.
- The filters must not be old or in need of replacement. Filters that are too old (past 4 months of heavy daily use) have been washed with water, soap or other chemicals will have the airflow permanently diminished, resulting in the pulsing process either not working properly or even not at all; causing increased strain on the electronics of the circuit board and likely blowing the 2 amp fuse. The pulsing cycles will only operate if air can flow freely in both directions.
To purchase this circuit board or upgraded wire harnesses will require the purchaser to complete an NDA prior to the sale or shipment of equipment.
