Overview
Parker Hannifin’s icountPDR is an on-line laser particle detector. This mineral based hydraulic fluid
contamination detector is designed for use in robust areas and is housed in a stainless steel IP69K
approved enclosure.
The unit has two 06L EO 24° cone-end hydraulic connections (for use with Ø6mm pipe) that allow
the fluid to be transferred through the unit for analysis. The electrical supply and communication is
made via an M12 Ultra Lock IP69K approved connector.
Conditions for safe use
To ensure compliance with the certification, users are NOT permitted to open the unit
under any circumstances. Doing so will invalidate the unit’s calibration and it would NOT
be suitable for calibrated use.
Laser Information

Introduction
Introduction
Parker Hannifin’s icountPDR represents the most up-to-date technology in solid particle
contamination analysis. The icountPDR is a compact, permanently-mounted laser-based particle
detector module that provides a cost-effective solution to fluid management and contamination
control.
Principles of operation
The icountPDR measures particle contamination continuously and updates the output options and
limit relay every second.
Unlike the Parker CM20, LCM20 or MCM20, the unit does not perform a ‘one-off’ test. This means
that even if the Measurement Period is set to 60 seconds, the output and limit relay all report the
presence of dirt in the oil in just a few seconds – it does not wait until the end of the Measurement
Period before reporting the result.
The icountPDR has just one setting to control the accuracy, stability and sensitivity of the
measurements and that is the ‘Measurement Period’. This can be set from 5 seconds to 180
seconds. The longer the Measurement Period, the more contaminant is measured, averaging out
any spikes seen on a smaller sample. The shorter the Measurement Period, the more sensitive
the icountPDR is to small slugs of contaminant, but it can also reduce the performance on clean
systems. Thus, the user can select how sensitive the icountPDR is to spikes of contaminant, and
how quickly it responds to contamination levels above the set point (‘limits’).
With a Measurement Period of 100 seconds, the results will be for the last 100ml of oil that has
flowed through the icountPDR, updated on a second-by-second basis, giving an effectively
continuous readout of the level of contamination.
Calibration recommendations
NOTE: Any servicing or repair work must be carried out by a Parker approved service
centre. Contact your local Parker Hannifin Sales Company for recalibration details. The
recommended period between recalibration is 12 months.
Please refer to the Parker Hannifin Quality and Servicing Booklet (FDCB272UK), supplied on CD.

Hydraulic connection
Our recommendation is to position the icountPDR as close to the system output as possible whilst
controlling the flow to the optimum 60ml/min. This then provides the highest pressure conditions,
plus the oil in this position is indicative of the reservoir’s oil condition.
The icountPDR is supplied with two 06L EO 24° cone-end hydraulic connections (for use with a
Ø6mm pipe).
For hydraulic connection, ensure that the hydraulic/pipe connection fitting is compatible with the
size 06L EO 24° cone bulkhead fitting (for use with a Ø6mm pipe).
Assembling the EO nut fitting
Step
1
2
Press the tube-end firmly into the assembly
core.
Turn back the nut for easy tube insertion and fit
the nut hand tight, then tighten the fitting until
you feel a sharp increase in resistance.
Ensure the bulkhead fitting is held with a
10mm spanner and tighten (approximately 1 to
1½ turns).

Connections
3
Now remove the pipe and nut to check
assembly.
The gap between sealing ring and
retaining ring must be closed. A little
relaxation (approximately 0.2mm) is allowed.
If the gap is not closed: Check all
components, including the tube.
4
Assemble the fitting until wrench-tight (without
spanner extension).
Tighten the fitting firmly by a minimum 1/6
(max ¼) turn (i.e. 1 to 1½ flats)
Flow control
Low to medium viscosity flow control option
A pressure compensated, flow control device (ACC6NN023) has
been developed to allow testing where flow ranges are outside
the icountPDR specifications (i.e. 40–140 ml/min), or where pipe
diameters do not allow the icountPDR to be installed directly.
The flow control device fits onto the downstream (outlet) side of
the icountPDR.
A 06L-G1/8A female adapter is provided for use with a Ø6mm pipe, that enables connection
directly to the icountPDR. Alternatively, the flow control device an be fitted further down stream. For
further information please contact Parker Hannifin.
The compact design requires no setting up or further user intervention as long as the system
conditions remain within the recommended pressure and viscosity ranges as below.

The Moisture sensor is an option that can be included when specifying the icountPDR. Refer to the
‘Product configurator’ (page 45) in the Reference section of this manual.
The Moisture sensor reports on the saturation levels of the fluid passing through the icountPDR
sensing cell. The output is a linear scale, reporting within the range of 5% saturation to 100%
saturation.

Connections
RS232 connection
Communication can be established between icountPDR and a PC using an RS232 serial
connection with the Parker Utility Setup Tool, the Parker Terminal utility, or via Microsoft Windows®
HyperTerminal.
Please note that HyperTerminal is not supplied with Windows Vista™, but the Parker Utility Setup
Tool and Parker Terminal can be used with this operating system. Both Parker programs are
supplied on the icountPD CD.

Software
Communication protocol
The commands used with the icountPDR are either made up of Set, Read or Start/Stop commands.
■■ Set commands allow the value or values of parameters to be changed
■■ Read commands allow the value or values of parameters to be read
■■ Start/Stop commands allow the user to start and stop tests.
Example:
[SDF dd/mm/yy] sets the date format
[RDF] reads the product format date
All commands are sent in ASCII characters, and the protocol accepts both upper and lower case
characters. For example, all of the following codes are equivalent:
SDF = Sdf = SDf = sdF = sdf
NOTE: The use of a ‘=’ after a command, for example [SDF = dd/mm/yy], is optional.
Certain commands are for expert use only and can be accessed via a password system. Should an
unauthorized person attempt to access these commands the icountPDR returns the error code for
‘Invalid Command’.
A list of error codes is given on page 34.

Error codes
If a command does not follow the protocol, an explanatory error code is returned.
Depending on the setting of SEV (Set the Error Verbose mode), either the error code, or the error
code and message are displayed.
For example, with SEV OFF (Error Verbose off) just the error code (e.g. Error 40) is returned. With
SEV ON (i.e. Error Verbose on) both the error code and message (e.g. Error 40 - Expected On or
Off) are returned.
Messages corresponding to the error codes are given in the following table:

Viscosity charts
The following charts indicate the differential pressure required to run a successful test at the
appropriate flow rates.
Example: If the fluid you wish to analyse has a relative viscosity to 60 cSt, to generate the optimum
flow rate 60ml/min a differential pressure of 0.5bar is required.
If the fluid you wish to analyse has a relative viscosity of 400 cSt, a 4 bar differential pressure would
result in 130 ml/min.
