HDM eco 80 Diesel Dispenser and HDM eco DEF Dispenser Units: Power Requirements and Set Up

Diesel and DEF dispensers are a dime a dozen… the market is watered down with dispensers that are just maintaining the status quo. The HDM eco 80 and HDM eco DEF stand out in the crowd. We specially designed these dispenser units to be set up very simply, right out-the-box. Unlike some of the competitor’s dispenser systems, all hanging hardware is pre-connected and all electrical wiring is pre-wired and manifolded in order to make setup a breeze. When it comes to power requirements, they are simple, yet important to maintain for the long term health of your system.

What type of power do I need?

You must run a dedicated 110v circuit from your existing panel. Nothing else should be running from this isolated circuit, and there is a very good reason for this. If that circuit is shared with a pump, for example, that (new or old) pump will need all available amp power to start up. Once it settles down into its operating amp range, the excess amps will more than likely travel the path of least resistance and back into the board. This is not a good practice, as some older pumps can dump more amps than the safe and adequate capacity that this board can handle. This same circuit is also your standard 20 amp breaker, making this a very uncomplicated configuration.

Where does the power go into?

You electrician will take that new circuit into the motherboard (see electrical connection in your owner’s manual or refer back to your notes from your certification class). Now, this is where a lot of value surfaces: these dispensers start up simply and easily the moment it lands in your yard, saving you operational costs and labor. That single conduit coming into the main board is more than adequate to power up the entire system. There is absolutely no need to slice that connection to power the pump. We are all about keeping it simple.

Troubleshooting note: Please make sure that you understand the slots that are dedicated to a 110v. Do not make the mistake of taking the “power-in” into a different part of the board, thus compromising the hardware and ultimately shorting it out.
