Loader Startup
Close all other applications prior to launching the Loader. The Loader may not function properly if other applications are running.
■ Environment setup
Check [Control Panel]>[Regional Options]>[Numbers]>[Decimal symbol] to
ensure that this is set to “ . ” (a period). (Normally, this is already set to period.)
For details,

■ Connecting the earthquake sensor to the PC
Connect the earthquake sensor and PC via the dedicated USB loader cable. You
also can use a commercially available RS-485↔USB converter and connect via
RS-485 communication.
You do not need to connect the earthquake sensor with the PC if you only want
to view files (offline). To startup the device in offline mode, remove the communications cable from the PC.
Removing the cable while online or any other communication failure will result in the following message: “A connection timeout error occurred with the
earthquake sensor. Exiting program.” The system will then return to Windows.
Reestablish the connection and restart the loader.
The Loader will detect the device type (SES70, SES60) automatically when the
device is connected to the PC. The Loader display and available operations will
reflect the detected device.

■ How to change settings
To change settings values, align the cursor (blue inverted character) with the
content in the field you want to change in the Setup window and double-click.
There are three ways to input values as indicated below. the input method varies
with each method.
(1) Select
(2) Numeric input
(3) Select + numeric input
After completing all input, press the [F7] Write Settings button. The changed
values are written to the earthquake sensor memory. After writing settings to the
memory, those values are read and monitored so you can confirm that the correct values have been written.
Make sure to write the settings to the memory. If you do not perform this memory write, the settings data will revert to the previous values once you reset the
earthquake sensor or go to the Initialize screen.
● How to input settings
(1)
Double-click on a selection method, select the field you want to set from
the pull-down, and then press the [Enter] key.
(2)
Numeric input method
Click on the desired field line, input the desired values in half-width characters, and then press the [Enter] key. For reference, you can align the cursor with the value field to display the applicable value range at the bottom
left of the screen. The field column becomes red to indicate an error if a
value exceeding the applicable range is input. Make sure to input an appropriate value.

you reset the earthquake sensor or go to the Initialize screen.
Handling Precautions
• In some cases, “Noise Protect” is displayed at the bottom of the screen in
display area G during the adjustment. This is not an error. This operation
is forcefully adjusting the acceleration to zero. The Noise Protect status
will disappear approximately 100 s after the start of the adjustment.
However, as the AC acceleration is not changed via the zero-adjust, this
has no impact on the Synth. AC Accel., SI, M.V.E.V., or Liquef. Judg. values

on the SI value and the synthetic AC acceleration
Uses temperature sensor values to correct the acceleration pickup output temperature characteristics to improve the accuracy of the measured acceleration.
Acceleration value containing frequency domain required for SI and M.V.E.V. calculation.
Also used in waveform recording and the synthetic AC acceleration PV.
Acceleration value cut at a higher frequency domain compared to the Calculation Accel. in order to
reduce background noise for AO, monitoring, etc.
Adjusted Accel.
Acceleration adjusted for bias.
Inclination Accel. Value representing static acceleration factoring in temperature drift and inclination due to setup
conditions.
AC Accel.
Value representing dynamic acceleration (=adjusted acceleration - inclination acceleration)
J.V.D.
J.V.D. status initiated when values set for SI and Synth. Accel. are exceeded and output conditions
are satisfied.
Control Output
When J.V.D. Condition is fulfilled and there is no error status, the control output relay is set to ON.
Liquef. (PV)
Liquef. detect status is enabled when the SI, Synth. Accel., estimate variance, and zero-cross count
Liquef. (PV) conditions are fulfilled.
Liquefaction
When J.V.D. Condition is fulfilled and there is no error status, the Lique. control output DO3 is set to

Record waveform There are two functions: auto-record (10 waveforms) and force record (1 waveform).
Error diagnosis
Four types of errors are detected: reset, serious failure, minor failure, and noise detection.
Reset
Reset is conducted in the event of a serious failure, which can impact all functions.
Serious failure
Error status that can impact control output, liquefaction output, and other control functions.
Control Accel.
Minor failure
Noise detection
Noise protect
Maintenance
Sequence
Pickup diagnosis
Auto bias
FSG
%FSG
FSO
%FSO
Serious failure output is set to ON and control output is set to OFF.

Minor failure output set to ON.
Status for detection of non-seismic signals that can impact calculation results.
PV values set to 0 or OFF and minor failure flashes.
The output status in Maintenance mode will change depending on the sequence. This makes it possible to check operations of externally connected instruments.

4.
Precautions against long-term use
Use of Azbil Corporation's products, including switches, which contain electronic components, over a prolonged
period may degrade insulation or increase contact-resistance and may result in heat generation or any other similar
problem causing such product or switch to develop safety hazards such as smoking, ignition, and electrification.
Although acceleration of the above situation varies depending on the conditions or environment of use of the
products, you are required not to use any Azbil Corporation's products for a period exceeding ten (10) years unless
otherwise stated in specifications or instruction manuals.
5.
Recommendation for renewal
Mechanical components, such as relays and switches, used for Azbil Corporation's products will reach the end of their
life due to wear by repetitious open/close operations.
In addition, electronic components such as electrolytic capacitors will reach the end of their life due to aged
deterioration based on the conditions or environment in which such electronic components are used.
Although acceleration of the above situation varies depending on the conditions or environment of use, the number
of open/close operations of relays, etc. as prescribed in specifications or instruction manuals, or depending on the
design margin of your machine or equipment, you are required to renew any Azbil Corporation's products every 5 to
10 years unless otherwise specified in specifications or instruction manuals.
System products, field instruments (sensors such as pressure/flow/level sensors, regulating valves, etc.) will reach the
end of their life due to aged deterioration of parts.
For those parts that will reach the end of their life due to aged deterioration, recommended replacement cycles are
prescribed. You are required to replace parts based on such recommended replacement cycles.
6.
Other precautions
Prior to your use of Azbil Corporation's products, you are required to understand and comply with specifications (e.g.,
conditions and environment of use), precautions, warnings/cautions/notices as set forth in the technical documents
prepared for individual Azbil Corporation's products, such as catalogs, specifications, and instruction manuals to
ensure the quality, reliability, and safety of those products.
7.
Changes to specifications
Please note that the descriptions contained in any documents provided by azbil are subject to change without notice
for improvement or for any other reason.
