Autotrol 155 with 440 Upgrade to 740 Day timer or 760 metered demand Logix Timer - How?
Last Updated: 04/30/2018
The Logix Upgrade Kits ( 740 or 760 ) are not meant to be used on the older Autotrol 155 ( 1550-TC ) Valve Bodies, but can be if you are willing to do some cutting of the new Logix Top Plate that must be used when converting to the Logix Timers ( 740, 742, 760, 762 ).
See below where a hole must be cut to allow the Top Plate to mount on to the Valve Body, and make "room" for the Brine Control Refill Plug ( installed in place of your old Brine Control Dial ).

There is now a Conversion "kit" for the metered Logix Valves.

Metered Control Upgrade for the Autotrol 255 / 460i is this 760 Logix Kit ( AP1255006 )with Indoor ( open face ) Cover as shown, unless you request Outdoor Cover.
Requires that you already have the Meter Turbine Assembly, our PN AP1032350, and the 12 volt Transformer ( our PN AP1000811 ),
OR you can purchase those separately to convert a 440 / Day timer operation to complete "metered / demand" operation.

Print Instructions included, as well are our Video LINKS below, to guide you through the retrofitting and programming.

Will replace the 460i Timer ( 12 volt and 60 Hz ) as a more advanced and durable metering control timer.

Also available in 50 Hz for an additional charge, and you must Select that voltage option for use Outside USA ( in countries that don't use 120 volt 60 Hz, but instead use 230 volt 50 Hz power sources with transformer ).

If you are wanting to convert from a 440, or 440i, 6 or 7 Day timer to the meter electronic demand timer you should purchase a complete new Autotrol Valve with the 760 Logix controller.Otherwise ( to convert and not replace the Whole Valve Head ) you'd need to purchase Separately the Turbine assembly ( AP1032350 ) and transformer, if you don't already have one ( used with 440i, but not 440, or 440iHV timers ).
Can be done, but would be more cost effective to purchase the Entire Valve ( all new Valve Body and Parts ) then attempt to Upgrade from non-metered ( 440, 440i ) to metered ( Logix 760 ).

The 460i timer is slowly being phased out, and replaced by the newer LOGIX timers.
NOTE: LOGIX timers do not "fit" directly on a 440 or 460 top plate, so this Upgrade KIT is Required to switch to 760 Logix Timer, if you want to upgrade your control valve.
The Autotrol 255 and 268 Performa Valves are available with the LOGIX timers.

Also, available for the model 263 and 268 Performa ( order PN AP1255008 ).
Key feature of the Logix timer:
* Single motor provides all the power to turn camshaft - no solenoids are needed!

* Valve may be indexed manually without power in the event of an extended power outage.

Watch Video to see how it's converted

Or depending on the age of your Valve Body, it might be "smarter" to replace the entire Valve Head for only a little more in cost as all the "parts" would be.
255 / 760 Logix Complete Valve.
If you have the 268 Performa, then Valve - 760 Logix Electronic 268 Metered Softener Control

The 740 Logix Kit was created by Autotrol to help customers GET OUT of the 440 timers ( which are now obsolete, and replaced by the 460TC timer ), and they have "discounted" the cost of the KIT that they have created.
Normally the 740 Logix board alone cost almost as much as the "UPGRADE KIT" because the "KIT" is a special deal, and only because Autotrol has chosen to provide it at a reduced cost.

Complete Valve Head replacement is the easiest way to upgrade to "metered" demand operation.

So the BEST would be the complete metered ( regenerates based on actual demand - water used ) control Logix 760 on a complete new 255 Valve,
