ALIGNMENT INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Adjustment of CCI foot mounts is a one-time adjustment performed at initial installation. The sensor and the foot mount are two separate components. This allows the sensor to be removed while the foot mount remains mounted. Centering after initial mounting is maintained by the mating of the sensor pilot to the foot mount counterbore. The sensor can be replaced with a spare in a matter of minutes without any adjustment. The CC450FM, CC46FM, and CC56FM foot mounts are all totally interchangeable with the following sensors: CC3820R, CC3822R, CC3825R, CC3820T, CC3822T, CC450T, CC3820A/RVDT, CC450A/RVDT, CC290T, CC292T, CC290R, CC400T, CC400AE, CC350T, CC350R, and C450AEMT.
1. FOOT MOUNT and PEDESTAL PREPARATION1.1 Prepare the pedestal by removing any dirt, debris, burrs, or other protrusions from the area where the foot mount surfaces will come in contact. A wire wheel, wire brush, sand paper, and files are tools needed for this procedure.
1.2 Clean any dirt or debris from the foot mount.
1.3 Mount the foot mount with the sensor to pedestal loosely allowing for shimming.
2. CENTERING & ALIGNMENT of FOOT MOUNTS
Tools required: 3/16" hex key, applicable tool for tightening coupling, straight edge, dial indicator scaled by 0.001" able to mount to motor shaft and coupling hub, and various shim stock.
Note: To insure proper alignment complete all of section 2.

2.2 Shaft to Shaft Alignment and Centering of Foot Mounts
Reference Drawing #'s 62220A1001and160A0040 for CC450FM, 160A0041for CC46FM, or 160A0042 for CC56FM
2.2.2 Using 3/16" hex key, remove (4) 1/4-20 x 7/8" socket head cap screws from the foot mount, as shown in applicable drawing.
2.2.3 Slide the sensor out of the foot mount.
2.2.4 Slide coupling on to the machine shaft and install sensor into foot mount. Torque the (4) 1/4-20 socket head cap screws 15-19 ft-lbs.
188.8.131.52 Slide coupling into position approximately centered between the machine and sensor shaft. Tighten the sensor side, reference Table 1 for coupling torque specifications.
2.2.5 Continue alignment with section 2.3.
2.3 Coupling Alignment and Centering of Foot MountsReference Drawings 62220A1002, 62220A1003and62220A1004
2.3.1 Angular Misalignment
184.108.40.206 Attach dial indicator to coupling flange as shown in drawing #62220A1002. Set dial indicator to zero.
220.127.116.11 Rotate coupling to locate the maximum (high) point. At this point set dial indicator to zero.
18.104.22.168 Shim sensor, rotate, and shim again until angular misalignment is within acceptable tolerance limits per Table 1, drawing #62220A1004
2.3.2 Parallel Misalignment
22.214.171.124 Attach dial indicator to coupling flange as shown in drawing #62220A1003. Set dial indicator to zero.
126.96.36.199 Rotate coupling to locate the maximum (high) point. At this point set dial indicator to zero.
188.8.131.52 Adjust shims, rotate, and shim again until parallel misalignment is within acceptable tolerance limits per Table 1.
184.108.40.206 Repeat steps 220.127.116.11 through 18.104.22.168 until coupling alignment is within acceptable tolerance limits per Table 1.
Note: Coupling has to be rotated several times after alignment procedure to insure no wobble to the coupling hubs is visible
2.3.3 Tighten machine shaft coupling and verify sensor shaft coupling, reference Table 1 for coupling torque specifications.

Return Products Procedure
No products may be returned, whether in warranty or out of warranty, without first obtaining approval from Carlen Controls. Any returned product (s) must be accompanied by a return authorization number. Products must be returned, prepaid, to Carlen Controls (no COD or Collect Freight accepted).
