Accessing Manifold PreHeat
The Manifold Pre-Heat Setting is in the "Manage Zones" section.
This is an important setting which affects how the controller starts heating up the tool.
When a pre-heat temperature has been set, the controller begins heating the manifolds first.
The cavities are powered at rest-mode power levels until the end of manifold pre-heat.
The cavities are only released once all manifolds have reached or exceeded the manifold pre-heat temperature.
The controller goes in to rest-mode once manifold pre-heat has ended. The user then initiates run-mode.
Manifold Pre-heat is closely related to Startup Groups. The two functions can work together, if desired, to create a more complex startup sequence.
To turn Manifold Pre-heat off, simply change the value to zero.
