Metering (analog) inputs (cont).
CAUTION! Floating Grounds
Except for the status/logic (wet) inputs, none of the Site Sentinel® 16’s metering
(analog) inputs will accept a floating ground. Damage to the Site Sentinel® 16 or
your equipment may result from connecting a floating ground output to the Site
Sentinel® 16. If you require metering equipment with inputs that have a floating
ground, an DC isolation amplifier should be used.
Sixteen metering (analog) input channels are available with the Site Sentinel® 16
via removable euroblock screw terminals. Connect the positive side of the source to
the desired channel terminal labeled MTRxx (where xx is the channel number 01
through 16) and associated MGND (metering ground) terminals.
Each metering (analog) input can handle up to (positive only) 10 volts DC and must
be ground referenced and connected to the associated MGND ground terminal.
Inputs are self-calibrating and are based on an internal A/D converter with a precision, low-drift voltage reference, so the reading should not drift over time or with
temperature. Metering setup is performed by connecting the sample voltage to the
MTRxx and MGND metering (analog) input, then calibrated for the desired value
(reading).
NOTE: Valid sample voltages MUST be applied to the selected metering input
in order to perform calibration.
Status/Logic Inputs
Each optically isolated status/logic inputs can be configured to accept either a contact closure (DRY = default) or a (floating, WET) input. Attach your dry contacts to
the desired status/logic channels StxxA and STxxB (where xx is the status/logic
input channels 01 thru 16) terminals.
Each input is equipped with a four-position header (please refer to the jumper layout in the appendix). JP1 supports status/logic input one, JP2 status/logic input two,
JP3, status/logic input three and JP16, status/logic input sixteen. Each jumper (JPxx,
where xx is the status/logic input) and the header pins 1,2,3,4 are used to configure
for wet or dry operation. The factory default is DRY. (Switch, relay contact, open
collector) with jumpers between 1 & 2 and 3 & 4. In the DRY configuration, the
“A” terminal is ground while the “B” terminal is the cathode of the opto-isolator
diode (pulled up to 5 volts through a 2.2K resistor).
To change the status/logic input to (floating) WET (user supplied voltage between 5
and 24 vdc), remove both jumpers and place ONE jumper over pins 2 & 3. Connect
the positive voltage to terminal “A” (anode) and ground or minus voltage to terminal “B” (cathode). NOTE: Please refer to the appendix for configuration examples and observe proper polarity.

“I/O” Setup Page
The following terms and ideas will help in the configuration of this device.
Alarms:
Alarms occur when an I/O Device falls into a specified threshold, this could be
an analog value going above or below a set point, a relay turning on or a digital input going high. Each I/O Device can be configured to send Emails when
an Alarm occurs.
Emails:
Each I/O device can be configured to send an email up to 8 email recipients
whenever the device enters or exits an alarm condition. Some devices have
multiple alarm conditions, such as a High and a Low alarm state. If the device
is configured to send an Exit email then the recipients list that was used for
entering the alarm state will also be used when exiting the alarm state.
Logs:
Each I/O device can be enabled for logging. Logging is configured on the
Email/Network Setup page and can be setup to send snapshots of the system at
periodic intervals. Only I/O devices enabled for Logging will be included in
this snapshot
On the I/O Setup screen, choose from the top drop-down box the device to configure.
Metering/Temperature
On the Metering/Temperature screen, select either Metering or Temperature from the
second drop-down box.

Calibration:
Enter the value of the desired meter reading.
NOTE: In order to calibrate, a valid DC sample voltage must be applied to
each input that you are calibrating. The calibration value must be positive and
can support a resolution up to 2 decimal places. The user MUST press the
“Save Cal” button in order to store the value. You do not need to press the
“Save Settings” button to save the calibration, only other settings.

This option specifies the LOW alarm set point.
This option specifies the HIGH alarm set point.
This option specifies what scale will be displayed, Fahrenheit
or Centigrade.
Hysteresis (deadband), This option specifies the hysteresis
used when evaluating alarm conditions.
NOTE: Hysteresis prevents alarms from toggling excessively when temperature
is at the set point. This is due to normal fluctuation. For example, if the hysteresis is set to 1 degree, and a high alarm is to occur at 91 degrees, the hysteresis
ensures that once the high alarm is triggered, it won't go off until the temperature
returns to below 91 degrees (90 - 1). This reduces problems with small fluctuations
in temperature readings triggering multiple alarms. The hysteresis is also used
during low alarm conditions. If, for example, a low alarm is to occur at 43 degrees
and the hysteresis is set to 1 degree, then once the low alarm is triggered, it won't
go off until the temperature returns to higher than 44 degrees (43 + 1).
