Installation Information - HIMAX Embedded - From M210

The below instructions relate to the HIMAX Embedded Standard version with serial number from M210. Please read through before you start because there are links to help you that you may miss if you only look at the schematic.

General Installation Instructions

  1. Mount valve module.

  2. Connect pipework. Ensure that there is no stress on the valve connections as this could cause the valve to be come misaligned and stop working.

  3. Connect Mains Power and Motor cable - Diagram 1

  4. Connect input and output signals - Diagram 2, 3, 4, 5.

  5. If your HIMAX valve has the VNC option, you may connect to the HIMAX control module using an ethernet cable, from a PC running VNC viewer. This can greatly assist with the setup of the unit. Click here for instructions.

Setting Valve Position

It is important to set the open and closed positions of the valves before utilising the HIMAX unit.


  • When tested, valves are not always tested with the control module they have been supplied with.

  • Valves may need to be closed further to seal when using higher pressures.

  • The pre-set fully open position may not be large enough to allow sufficient flow through the valve for the application.


  1. Ensure the motor speed is set at a low voltage (3rpm (or 3V) or less is recommended).

  2. Move the valve to its current open or closed limit, depending on which one requires moving outside of the limits.

  3. Press and hold down the Allow Past Limit button. At the same time press and hold the relevant Jog function or step function to move the valve past its current set limits.

  4. Carefully watch the valve until it physically reached the desired new fully open or fully closed position.

  5. Press the relevant Set Open or Set Closed button to set this as the new limit.
