MANUAL MODE.-- In the manual mode the
command signals are generated by toggle switches. An
operator positions these switches for specific functions

and thermostats. Each motometer has three indicator
pointers-one for indicating existing temperature and
two for setting desired temperatures. Water and/or
steam are automatically injected to bring the
temperature to the preset value.
The air distribution system uses ship's service
compressed air to operate the brake and clutch
assemblies. Electrically controlled solenoid valves
connected to the air manifold distribute the compressed
air as signaled by the command or control circuits. The

During wash or drain cycles, the drive is from the
