SYSTEM ADMINISTRATION When the unit is initially powered the control system will go through an initialisation stage. During this stage the touchscreen will display the unit’s IP address, the controller communications and the MAC address of the touchscreen. These parameters are only relevant if the Duck has been configured to operate on the hospital or facilities’ internal data network. Once the duck has gone through its pre-operation initialisation which entails running a cycle, the system will display a cycle passed message with a button for the user to open the door :
This is your indication that the system is ready for operation. Touch anywhere on the button and the door will open after which the screen will return to the home page:
As described above, the process for starting a cycle from here is as simple as waving your hand past the electronic eye on the front of the panel. Once the door has closed select either the GO button for a NORMAL cycle or for a more economical water saver cycle, select the MENU button which will navigate you to the cycle selection screen then select the SAVER cycle button. The unit will then begin the cleaning process. 10 of 28
Atherton To customise the unit select the MENU button from the cycle selection screen. If you are on the home screen you will need to select MENU first then MENU again. To recognise the home screen, it does not have any option to select the SAVER CYCLE. The correct screen from which you can proceed to customise the unit is shown below. Select the MENU button from this screen to proceed to the system menu screen; From there the system can be customised.
SYSTEM MENU The System Menu screen will display the following menu:
When you select any of the options you will be required to login to Administrator Level. This is done automatically by selecting a button and entering your password: (The default password is ‘333’)
11 of 28
Atherton Once you are logged in select any of the options on the screen, with the exception of the Commission Unit button, the display will change allowing you to enter new operating parameters. We will now discuss each option in detail.
3.4.1 Cycle Parameters The Cycle Parameters button allows you change the operating parameters for the Normal Cycle. This is the cycle that is started by selecting the GO button from the home screen. The following parameters can be altered: 1. Rinse Time 2. Sanitising Temperature 3. Sanitising Time 4. Final Rinse Time The screen below shows the complete list of adjustable cycle parameters:
To adjust a parameter simply touch the raised grey button and enter the new value in the pop-up; then select the return button from the pop-up. The screen will now display the new parameter. IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THE AUSTRALIAN STANDARD DICTATES THAT SANITISING SHOULD BE CARRIED OUT AT NO LESS THAN 85°C FOR NO LESS THAN 60sec
To return to the System Menu select the MENU button at the bottom of the screen. 12 of 28
Atherton 3.4.2 Eco/Water Save Cycle Parameters The process of altering the parameters for the SAVER Cycle is identical to the procedure described above.
The Eco/Water Save cycle is the cycle that is started by selecting the SAVER CYCLE button from the home screen. The same precautions regarding the setting of sanitising temperature and sanitising time apply, however it is envisaged that the user may opt for a shorter Rinse Time and shorter Final Rinse Time. 3.4.3 Alarms The Duck has a sophisticated alarm management system, with the user being alerted to an alarm condition by a flashing bell, which appears in the top right hand corner of the screen:
13 of 28
Atherton To view the alarm text, the user must log in with an Administrator password, as described in the System Menu section, and then select Alarms from the System Menu:
Here we can see there are two alarms active: -The Steamer Over temp. - Low Sanitising Temperature. To acknowledge an alarm select the line on the screen by touching it; a black outline box will indicate the selected alarm. Then touch the “tick” button from the right hand menu. This will cause the text for the alarm to change colour; this indicates that the alarm is still active but has been acknowledged. When the alarm condition has reset, the text indicating the alarm will change to a grey background colour. When all alarm states have cleared, the ringing bell in the top right hand corner will disappear. To view the time and date of the alarm, select the wristwatch icon from the right hand menu. If the alarm has an associated reset screen, select the “i” icon; this will force the system to change to the reset screen. If however the alarm cannot be reset, the system will immediately indicate that the alarm is still active. The system will retain 1024 alarms; once this number has been reached the earliest alarm is over written as newer alarms occur.

Atherton 3.4.4 Cycle Charts While the system is operating a cycle the following chart is active: The chart records the steamer temperature and the chamber temperature. The chart has an update time of 2 seconds and will retain 500 samples before the earliest sample is over written. To exit out of the chart simply select the RETURN button and the screen will change to the previously displayed screen. 3.4.5 System Options The Duck can be customised in the following ways: 1. The operating screen can be customised to display more detail about the operating cycle. 2. The door can be set to open automatically after a passed cycle. The system options screen is shown below:
3.4.6 Analog Inputs By selecting the Analog Inputs button the system will display the current, chamber and steamer temperatures: 15 of 28
To return to the main menu select the Menu button at the bottom of the screen. 3.4.7 The Commission Unit Button The commission unit button is not available to the user. It is to be accessed by Atherton or your designated service personnel. The parameters, which are set by accessing this area of the system directly, effect the performance of the unit. In most cases the parameters are factory set values that should never need changing. 3.4.8 Changing The Administrator Password Before we discuss the process of changing the administrator password it is important to understand what access the Administrator level is required for. The Administrator level of access is required to: 1. Acknowledge a failed cycle, and proceed to open the door. 2. Reset the steamer over temperature alarm. 3. Access the system menu. 4. Customise the operating screen. 5. Set the system options. To remove Administrator protection simply delete the password. To change the Administrator password, select the Passwords button from the system menu. This will display the passwords pop-up. The Administrator password is the Level 3 value; in this case it is set to the default “333”. 16 of 28
Atherton To change the password, select the value next to the text Level 3 (Levels 1 & 2 are reserved for future system features, they are not used in this version of the Duck). In this case select 333. The screen will now display the standard input pop-up:
I can now enter the new password – I am entering the value “123”. When complete I then select the return button. To commit the new password use the scroll down arrows until the OK button on the passwords screen is available, then select OK:
I have now changed the Administrator password from “333” to “123”.

CYCLE OPERATION & ABORT SEQUENCE The previous section details the procedure for operating and customising your Duck Sanitiser. In this section we will discuss the sequence of operation for a cycle, and we will also look at what to do when the Duck aborts a cycle.
SEQUENCE OF OPERATION NOTE: This sequence applies to both the Saver Cycle and the Normal Cycle. After you have selected a cycle from the home screen, the system will either close the door, or if the door is closed, start the cycle. The cycle sequence is as follows: 1. Rinse Stage – cold water is sprayed into the chamber to rinse the contents. 2. Sanitising Stage - the steamer is enabled and once cycle setpoint is achieved by monitoring the chamber temperature, the cycle holding time is counted down to zero. 3. Final Rinse Stage - cold water is sprayed into the chamber to rinse and cool down the contents.
4.1.1 Operating Screens – Detailed Mode Turned OFF During the cycle the system will display the following screen: Remaining sanitizing time Chamber temperature
When the unit is sanitizing the text SANITIZING appears here.

ABORT SEQUENCE At any stage during a cycle the cycle can be aborted by touching the ABORT CYCLE button. The user will be forced to log in with the Administrator password and then touch the button again. This will cause the cycle to be aborted and the system will proceed with the following abort sequence: 1. Display the Cycle Aborting Screen:
2. If the steamer is active it will be shut-off. 3. The final rinse stage will be initiated. 4. If the chamber temperature is below 85°C and the hi-level indicator is off, the system will display the following Cycle Finished - Fail Screen: 20 of 28
