5. Power supply and exploitation of transmitters.
i
i
5.1. The transmitter connecting should be made after introduction with present instruction content.
Electrically transmitter should be connected according to scheme at p.6 Appendix Exd.ATEX.
Transmitter electrical installation should be realised with engineering standard requirements. Electrical
connections of transmitters in danger zone should be made by people who have indispensable
knowledge and experience in this branch. Earth clamps must be used to earth transmitters. In the
event that transmitters come in contact with structural metal parts or pipes which are connected to the
equipotential bonding system, transmitters do not require to be earthed.
5.2. Transmitters should be supplied from DC electrical source with voltage max.45V from transformer
feeders or other devices which have at least a strengthened isolation among primary and secondary
windings in which don’t appear voltage higher than 250V. The duty of power supply installation with
above mentioned requirements rests on user.
5.3. Transmitters can be used in ambient temperatures (Ta) between -40ºC < Ta ≤ 45ºC for class T6 or
between -40ºC < Ta  75ºC for T5.
5.4. Transmitter sensor diaphragm should not be subject on damage during installation and
exploitation. The diaphragm is made from 1.4404/1.4435 (316L) or Hastelloy thin foil and cannot be
subject on medium which can entail its damage.
5.5. With regard on kind of casing material (light alloy with large aluminium content), the user is obliged
to assure, that possibility of hitting casing does not step out in place of transmitter installation.
5.6. In transmitter casing are two holes to assembly of cable glands from thread M20x1.5 or 1/2 NPT.
i
5.7. Normally transmitters are delivered without installed glands but with blank plugs (corks) in the
second hole. The list of cable glands and plugs agreeable with production documentation and accepted
by certificate station is specified in Table 1 and Table 2 (p.6 Appendix Exd.ATEX). Customer should
install cable glands according to Tables 1 and plugs according to Tables 2 (if plugs aren’t installed) or
other accordance with flame-proof standards.
i
5.8. It is necessary to apply a shield cable or without shield cable with round cross-section in protection
from elastomer, not moisture absorbing, for example: YKSLY 2 * 1, YnTKSYekw 1 * 2 * 1, LIYCY 2 *
In case of need use cable with different structure, customer should co-ordinate this with transmitters’
manufacturer to choose intakes with cable diameter.
5.9. The general principles of connecting and the exploitation of transmitter in Exd realization should be
compatible with principles and relating standards for Exd casing devices how in p.2.1 Appendix
Exd.ATEX, in this including also: EN 600079-14, EN 60079-17.
i
5.10. During service must be made a check of the tight fastening of covers and the cable glands and
the fastening of the cable in the glands. The casing and supply line must be inspected for mechanical
damage, and the transmitter rating plate for legibility. Periodic checks should also be made of the
diaphragm, which should not carry signs of damage. During maintenance it is recommended that the
threads of the covers be lubricated with non-acid vaseline.
Because of the transmitter damage possibility, the ambient temperature should not be allowed
to become higher than 80ºC, even when there is no explosion risk.

In case of transmitter calibration outside danger zone is possible communicator connecting to
<SIGNAL+> and <TEST+> terminals. Transmitter is furnished in communication resistor (RD = 240Ω),
closed with jumper at <SIGNAL-> and <TEST-> terminals installed by manufacturer. RD resistor can be
use then, when it is necessary to communicate with transmitter from its terminals and the load resistance
(Ro) in current loop is lover then 240Ω. Than <SIGNAL-> and <TEST-> terminals have to be open.
In danger zone don’t unscrew transmitter covers and don’t change the display position or its
back lighting.
Blocking cover method before unscrewing and plumbing possibility is shoved at Fig.20.
It is not permitted to repair or otherwise interfere with the transmitter’s electrical circuits in any

*) Maximum conductors cross-section: 2.5mm.
Grounding to the transmitter should be performed according to the gas-volume conversion device
documentation. To transmitter grounding should be used external earthing terminal if grounding by pressure
connector is not enough. An exemplary method of grounding of pressure measuring system is shown in Figure
1b.
5.4. Cable entries (glands).
Transmitters in the MID version are equipped with cable entries which meet the ATEX requirements
(see Appendix Exi.ATEX and Appendix Exd.ATEX) and the requirements of EN 12405-1:2005+A2:2010.
In order to facilitate the adaptation of transmitter installation parameters for user-specific installation
requirements, in agreement with the user, transmitters can be supplied without glands and plugs. Then user
must verify and approve applied own cable inlets and plugs which will use for compliance with the requirements
of ATEX, IP and EN 12405-1:2005+A2:2010.

*) According to EN 12405-1:2005+A2:2010 pressure units: bar and MPa can be used interchangeably.
Measuring range of transmitters is setting by the manufacturer. Blocking against changes in the transmitter
settings can be made as follows:

systemically, by HART System, activated by a configuration program (Report 2) and protected by
password;

"spec MID locking" done with local buttons on the transmitter with a local menu (command MID_WP).
For pressure transmitters complying to MID Parts Certificate, a manufacturer's standard "spec locking"
is activated, but in agreement with the customer transmitters are not blocked and then the locking
should be on by manufacturer of conversion devices.
Local buttons are protected by a screw display cover, which is sealed. When "spec MID locking" is done can
change only certain parameters of the transmitters, ie: HART transmitter address and the time constant,
and can be made additional entries identifying the transmitter associated with its place of installation.
The proceedings relating to the sealing set out in p. 8.
i
The pressure transmitter, as a part of the gas conversion of type 2, in accordance with the
requirements of the MID Directive must be protected against unauthorized manipulation by its producer
or manufacturer of the gas volume converter. Sealing of the transmitters is done by its manufacturer or,
by agreement with the customer, they may not be sealed, then sealing should be made by
manufacturer of gas volume conversion.
6.2. Measurement error (according to EN12405-1:2005+A2:2010) in relation to the measured value:

at the rated temperature range (-25 ÷ 55ºC)
≤ 0.5%

at reference conditions
≤ 0.2%
6.3. Long term stability / 5 years
≤ 0.5%
The manufacturer recommends a vertical mount transmitter APC-2000ALW during the pressure measurements
in MID applications.

7. APC-2000ALW in MID application. Electronic display
Electronic indicating device (display), built-in the APC-2000ALW transmitters, are not controlled metrologically
and as such cannot be used for clearing in accordance with EN12405-1:2005+A2:2010.
8. APC-2000ALW in MID application. Protection against unauthorized
manipulation
8.1. Blocking by the transmitters manufacturer. Access to the local configuration buttons and to the
transmitter internal components is blocked by the sealing of the display cover and a measuring head locking
screw to the housing of the transmitter. The transmitter rated plates are made of materials self-destructive
during detachment, or alternative used metal rated plates have one of the screws sealed to the casing. Access
“spec MID locking” protects against unauthorized interference to transmitters from a HART system.
APC-2000ALW series transmitter manufacturer is using with a plastic seal in its MID realization. Change of the
"spec MID locking” status ("ON" or "OFF") is possible after removing of the manufacturer sealing from the local
buttons side cover only.
8.2. Blocking by the gas volume conversion manufacturer. Turn on the "spec MID locking" with local
buttons using local menu of transmitter (p.10.2.5.2 DTR.APC.APR.ALW.03(ENG), MID_WP – “ON”). Put the
seals of the gas volume conversion producer on the cover, screw of a sensor head and a label if it is metal
made. Places of seals application is shown by the arrows at Fig. 1c. Seal should be made in accordance with
the documentation of gas volume conversions in the place/country their use.

flag in the output signal HART, and information, respectively "o u E r" or "u n d E r" in place of the first process
variable on a transmitter display. Other alarms work as at p.10.3 this User Manual
DTR.APC.APR.ALW.03(ENG).
10. Verify of the pressure transmitter in its workplace
To verify the correct functioning of the transmitter at its workplace should be used a HART system diagnostic
tool implemented to transmitter. For this purpose is need:

converter HART / RS-232 or other for example HART/USB/Bluetooth Converter;

PC with Windows XP or higher, with at least 512 MB of RAM;

Report 2 APLISENS software.
A computer with a converter must be connected to the transmitter as shown in Figure 2a or 2c for the load
resistance Ro <240 , see User's Manual DTR.APC.APR.ALW.03(ENG) p.16. Drawings. After starting Report 2
program read data from the transmitter. Installation parameters and current parameters of the transmitter are
recorded in the tabs of the Report 2. And so in:

Identification tab - read the identity data of the transmitter;

Basic parameters tab - check the measuring range, pressure unit and time constant;

Process Variables tab - check the current parameters of the transmitter measuring;

Write protection tab - check the setting of current lock before entries;

Transmitter Status tab - check the current status of the transmitter, its analog and digital outputs
status with the marked exceeded errors of measuring range, or errors of particular blocks of the
transmitter if they would existed.
Transmitter verify in the workplace should make a worker who is trained in the handling of measuring
electrical installations in explosive environments.
11. APC-2000ALW in MID application. Repair, calibration
Transmitters repair should be performed by the manufacturer, or the manufacturer's authorized repair shops.
The procedures of handling after transmitters repairs should be in accordance to the provisions of the country
where transmitters are operating.

6. CONSTRUCTION
6.1. Principle of measurement. Electronic system construction
The electrical signal from the sensor which is proportional to the pressure is sent to a digital analog input and
converted to a digital signal. The digital signal is transmitted through optoelectronic galvanic barrier to
conditioning module. The main plate microcontroller reads measured values and using internal algorithms
calculates the exact value of pressure and temperature. The calculated value of the process variable is
displayed on the integrated LCD screen, which can be configured as needed. The digital value of the measured
pressure signal is converted to an analogue 4 - 20 mA signal. A built-in modem BELL 202 and HART rev5.1
communication stack enables communication with the transmitter via a converter HART/RS232 attached to
a PC and software, or via communicator. The electrical output of transmitter is equipped with a suppression
filter and surge protective elements. The block circuit of transmitter is presented at Fig 1. The APC..., APR...
transmitters monitor of the work of their hardware resources and the correctness of calculations, and inform
about mistakes by displaying a message on the LCD screen, and exposing the alarm current in the loop
(depending on configuration). Sensor electronics is galvanically separated from the measuring line. This allows
reduce a susceptibility of measurement to interference and increased safety in intrinsically safe and flameproof
applications.
6.2. Enclosure of transmitters
Enclosures of APC..., APR ... transmitters are made of die-cast aluminium alloy or stainless steel and consist of
a body and two screwed covers (display and electrical connection), one of which is equipped with a glass
window. The enclosure provides two holes on the cable entries with thread M20x1.5 or ½ NPT (the unused hole
is sealed with stopper). The housing consists of two chambers separated by an electrical culvert. Housing is
equipped with ground terminals: internal and external. The basic units of transmitter are: measuring sensor,
in which pressure signal is converted into electric signal, and electronic units, transforming signal from
measuring sensor into unified output signal.
6.3. Main electronics plate with display
Main plate electronics with display is placed in the casing of polycarbonate. It is placed in bigger from two
chambers where is possibility to change of display position by 345 with 15º increments to required position
(in "Version SC" rotation the display is possible by 180º, in ±90º) (see Fig 4). In second chamber is placed
a connecting board with protective devices and EMC filter.
6.4 Measuring head
The measuring head is a measuring unit equipped with a silicon membrane sensor. The sensor is placed in
a silicone oil-filled space enclosed, on one side of the culvert with the leads insulated in glass on the other side
of the separating membrane which separates the sensor from the medium (APR… transmitters have a two
separated membranes). Measuring heads are equipped with process connectors as at Fig. 6a, 7a and 8a or
other. APR… transmitters measured head has two process connectors type P or C connector (Fig. 10) for
assembly on manifold. Measuring head of APR-2000GALW is intended to low pressures of gases with
overpressure to 100kPa (or 35kPa). This transmitter in standard version (economic) is equipped in the process
connectors adjusted to elastic pipes ø6x1, and in industrial versions in adapters as Figure 18.
6.5. Separators
For pressure measurement of viscous, chemically reactive or hot process mediums, the transmitter may be
additionally fitted with various types of diaphragm seal.
The diaphragm seal transmits the process pressure via an inert fluid fill between the diaphragm of the seal and
the diaphragm of the transmitter. When remote diaphragm seals are fitted, the pressure between the diaphragm
seal and the transmitter is via a filled capillary. The seal’s construction is dependent on the process medium
properties and the application operating conditions.
APR-2000YALW smart level probe is equipped in diaphragm seal and flange to fixing on tank.

7. PLACE OF INSTALLATION
7.1. General recommendations
7.1.1. The smart pressure transmitter and differential pressure transmitter can be installed both indoors and
outdoors. It is recommended that transmitters intended for outdoor use be placed in a box or under cover.
7.1.2. The place of installation should be chosen in such a way as to allow access to the device and to protect it
from mechanical damage. In planning the installation of the transmitter and configuration of the impulse lines,
attention should be paid to the following requirements:
i
- The impulse lines should be as short as possible, with a sufficiently large cross-section, and free of
sharp bends, in order to prevent blockages;
- Where the medium is a gas, the transmitters should be installed above the measuring point, so that
condensation flows down towards the site of the pressure measurement; where the medium is a liquid
or where a protective liquid is used, the transmitters should be installed below the place where
the pressure measurement is taken;
- The impulse lines should be inclined at a gradient of at least 10cm/m;
- The levels of filling liquid in the impulse lines should be equal or kept constant difference;
- The configuration of the impulse lines and the valve connection system should be chosen with regard
to the measurement conditions and to requirements such as the need to reset the transmitters in
position and the need for access to the impulse lines during water or gas removal and flushing.
7.1.3. Where there is a risk of damage to the transmitter thorough impact (which can result in
extreme cases with the transmitter being separated from the connecting pipework thus permitting
leakage of medium), appropriate means of protection should be applied for obvious safety
reasons and to avoid the possibility of sparking caused by being struck. If the transmitter cannot
be suitably protected then an alternative mounting location should be sought.
7.1.4. Attention should also be paid to possible installation faults which may lead to measurement errors, such
as connections which are not tight, sediment blockage in lines which are too narrow, gas bubbles in a liquid line
or liquid column in a gas line etc.
7.2. Low Ambient Temperature
When the solidification point of the liquid whose pressure is being measured is higher than the
ambient temperature, steps should be taken to protect the measurement apparatus from freezing
effects such as medium expansion.
This is particularly important in the case open-air installations.
Protection is obtained by filling the impulse lines with a mixture of ethylene glycol and water, or another liquid
whose solidification point does not exceed the ambient temperature. Thermal insulation can protect the
transmitter casing and lines only from brief exposure to low temperatures. Where the temperature is very low,
the transmitter and impulse lines should be heated.
7.3. High Medium Temperature
The APC..., APR... transmitters may be used to measure media with temperatures of up to 120ºC (PED version
see p 5.2.4, 5.3.5). To protect the sensing module from temperatures higher than 120ºC, long impulse lines are
used to disperse the heat and to lower the temperature of the sensing module.
Where it is not possible to use impulse lines of the required length, APC..., APR... transmitters with remote
diaphragm seals should be used (see “DIAPHRAGM SEALS” catalogue cards).
Data as per Appendix Exi.ATEX / Appendix Exi.IECEx apply for the Ex version and Appendix
Exd.ATEX / Appendix Exd.IECEx apply for the Exd version.
C1

DTR.APC.APR.ALW.03(ENG)
7.4. Mechanical Vibration shocks. Corrosive Media
7.4.1. Transmitters should correctly work with vibrations with amplitudes to 1.6 mm and accelerations to 4g.
If strong vibrations are carried via the pressure line and disturb of measuring, use should be made of elastic
pulse lines or transmitters with a remote diaphragm seal.
7.4.2. Transmitters should not be installed in places where the diaphragm, made of 1.4404/1.4435 (316L)
steel, would be subject to corrosion by the medium being measured. If possible, transmitters with
diaphragms made of Hastelloy C276 should be used, or other means of protection applied (e.g. in the
form of a separating liquid) or transmitters with diaphragm seals adapted for measuring aggressive
mediums according to “DIAPHRAGM SEALS” catalogue cards should be used).
8.
i
INSTALLATION AND MECHANICAL CONNECTIONS
The APC..., APR... transmitters can operate in any position.
When installed on an object with a high-temperature medium, it is advantageous to mount the transmitter
in a horizontal position or downwards, in such a way that the transmitter is kept away from the rising hot
air.
For the small measurement ranges, the reading can be affected by the transmitter position, and by the
impulse lines configuration, or the way in which they are filled with liquid. This error can be corrected
using the zero-setting function.
8.1. APC... Installation and connections
8.1.1. The APC... transmitters can be mounted directly on the rigid impulse lines.
For used connectors as in Figures 5a, 6a and 7a, it is recommended that connection sockets be used as shown
in Figure 6b, 7b, 8b or 8c. It is recommended that sockets labelled “Socket CG1” and „Socket CG1/2” Fig. 9 are
used for CG1 and CG1/2 connections, respectively.
Besides, there are adapters for standard DIN50, (DIN40, DIN25, Clamp2”, Clamp1.5”, Clamp1”) type connections
provided for readouts carried out in aseptic conditions using transmitters with CM30x2 connection.
There are gaskets provided for every transmitter with P, CM30x2, CG1, CG1/2 and GP type connections.
The gasket material is selected based on the pressure value, temperature and the type of the medium.
8.1.2. If the pressure is applied via a flexible plastic tube, the transmitter should be mounted on a support with
Red Ø6-M reduction.
The types of the impulse tubes (Fig.25) are to be selected depending on the pressure measured value and
the medium temperature.
8.1.3. Tighten the transmitter in the socket with a torque suitable for the type of the gasket used and
the pressure measured.
8.1.4. The APC… transmitter can be installed using a universal “AL” holder allowing to mount the transmitter
in any position on the support or a horizontal or vertical pipe Ø35... Ø65 (Fig. 17).
8.2. APR... Installation and connections
8.2.1. The APR … transmitters can be mounted directly on rigid impulse lines.
To connect the transmitter basic versions, with two M20 x 1.5 connectors (P-type connector), can use
(for example) straight connecting elements with C type nuts. If elastic impulse lines are used, the transmitter
should be additionally fastened to a pipe, panel or supporting construction.
8.2.2. The APR-2000ALW, APR-2000ALW/L and APR-2200ALW, APR-2200ALW/L can be installed using
the ø25 Fastener (Fig.12) on an ø25 pipe or on a flat surface using an angle bracket.
8.2.3. The APR-2000ALW, APR-2000ALW/L with connecting cover (C-type connector) (Fig.10) are designed
for installation on 3-valve or 5-valve manifolds to a 2” pipe or to a flat surface using “C-2” holder (Fig.13, Fig.14).
8.3. APR-2000GALW. Installation and connections
8.3.1. The “economy” version of the APR-2000GALW transmitter can be mounted on a wall, panel or other
stable construction, using a clamp with Ø9 holes (Fig.18). The transmitter is fitted with connectors which fit to
an Ø6x1 elastic impulse tube. When the measuring impulse is transmitted via a metal terminal with M20x1.5
connector, an adapter is used between the M20 x 1.5 threads and the Ø6x1 terminal.
Transmitters should be installed in a vertical position. The way of impulse line leading should enable
the vapour flowing towards the pipeline. Where there is a significant difference between the height at which
the transmitter is mounted and the height of the impulse source, particularly if the measurement range is small,
the reading may fluctuate depending on the temperature difference between the impulse lines. This effect can
be reduced by ensuring that the impulse lines run side by side.
C1
35
DTR.APC.APR.ALW.03(ENG)
8.3.2. The APR-2000GALW transmitter can also be fitted with an adapter (Fig.18) creating a C-type connector,
designed for installation on a 3-valve or 5-valve manifold. Aplisens can also supply ready transmitters mounted
on valves.
8.4. APR-2000YALW. Installation and connections
The APR-2000YALW level probes installed in places where liquid levels are measured in closed tanks, with
access to medium from top of tank as Fig.19 and 10.2.9. Level probes should be installed in a vertical position.
8.5. APC-2000ALW/L…. Installation and connections
APC-2000ALW/L…. installed in places where liquid level is measurement: in wells, tanks, reservoirs, etc.
The transmitter sensor is immersed in measured medium. The sensor can be hung on the power cable by using
a Aplisens SG handle , but especially in the case of long cables, or if are opportunities of hooking protruding
elements when the cable is pulling up, it is recommended that the sensor suspended on a steel rope using the
sensor lug. If the sensor would be in the flow or turbulence of medium, should be assembled in the casing pipe
for example PVC made.
From sensor SG-25S remove the protective plate before it’s placing into medium.
During the installation the sensor should be protected from mechanical shocks
Sensor with cable with additional Teflon shield should be hung on steel rope or on a cable (no fasten by
Teflon shield).
Pressure may be transmitted to the installed device only after checking that it has a measurement
range which properly corresponds to the value of the measured pressure, that gaskets have been
properly selected and fitted, and the connectors have been properly screwed tight.
Attempts to undo the screws or fixing connector pipes on a transmitter under pressure may
cause the medium to leak and create hazards for the personnel.
When disassembling the transmitter, it is necessary to disconnect it from the process pressure or
bring the pressure to atmospheric level, and to take particular care and precautions in case of
media which are highly reactive, caustic, explosive or otherwise hazardous to personnel.
If necessary, rinse out this part of the system.
Transmitters with flange diaphragm seals are to be installed on the corresponding counter flanges on
the facility.
It is recommended that the user matches the screw joints material to the pressure, temperature, flange
material and seal to ensure tightness of the flange joint in the expected operating conditions.
Screws complying with ISO 261 are to be used for flanges used in the APC..., APR... transmitters.
Additional data concerning the diaphragm seals are specified in the “DIAPHRAGM SEALS” catalogue cards.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
9.1. General recommendations
9.1.1. It is recommended that twisted pair cabling be used for the signal lines. If the transmitter and signal line
are subject to a large amount of electromagnetic interference, then shield pair cable should be used. The signal
wires should not run alongside network power supply cables or near to large electrically-powered devices.
The devices used together with the transmitters should be resistant to electromagnetic interference from the
transmission line in accordance with compatibility requirements. It is also beneficial to use anti-interference
filters on the primary side of the transformers, the power supplies used for the transmitters and apparatus used
in conjunction with them.
i
9.1.2. Wet or rising damp inside transmitter can cause its damage.
When the isolation of the wires in the cable gland is ineffective (for example, when single wires
are used) the opening of the gland should be carefully sealed with an elastic sealing compound
to obtain IP66 protection. It is useful to form the segment of the signal wire leading to the cable
gland into a protective loop to prevent condensation from running down in the direction of
the gland.

In APC..., APR... transmitters, a 240Ω resistor is permanently fitted in series in the transmitter’s current
circuit and blocked up with jumper between <SIGNAL –> and <TEST –> as shown in Fig.2a and 2b.
When the resistance in the current loop is lower than 240Ω it is necessary to jumper disassemble to
HART communication.
9.3. Protection from excess voltage
9.3.1. The transmitters may be in danger from excess voltage caused by connection faults or atmospheric
electrical discharge.
Protection from excess voltage between the wires of the transmission line is provided by TVS diodes installed in
all types of transmitter (see the table, column 2).
9.3.2. In order to protect against excess voltage between the transmission line and the casing or earth
(not prevented by the diodes connected between the transmission wires), additional protection is provided in
the form of plasma surge arresters (see the table, column 3).
Also external protective devices may be used, e.g. the UZ-2 Aplisens system, or others. When the transmission
lines are long, it is advantageous to use one protective device near the transmitter (or inside it), and another near
entry points to other devices used in conjunction with it.

9.3.3. The voltage in the protective elements must not exceed the maximum permitted values given in columns
2 and 3 of the table. Security using surge arresters are used for Exi versions with identification on the rating
plate "Version SA" or "Version SC, SA".
i
The insulation test voltages (500V AC or 750V DC) given in 5.1.1 refer to transmitters plasma surge
arresters - such protection is not used in Exi versions of transmitters.
9.4. Earthing
The transmitters are fitted with internal and external earth terminals.
10. SETTING AND REGULATION
APC..., APR... transmitters are factory calibrated to the range stated in the order or to the basic range.
After installation, the transmitter’s zero-point may move and require adjustment.
This applies particularly in cases where the measurement range is small, where the impulse lines are filled with
a separating liquid or where APC..., APR... transmitters are used with remote diaphragm seals.
10.1. Transmitter Range, Basic Range. Definitions
10.1.1. The maximum range of pressure, or differential pressure, which the transmitter can measure, is called
the “basic range” (for specifications of basic ranges see section 5.2.1, 5.3.1, 5.3.2, 5.4.1, 5.5.1).
The width of the basic range is the difference between the upper and lower limits of the basic range.
The internal characteristic conversion curve for the basic range is coded in the transmitter’s memory.
This is the reference curve used when making any adjustments which affect the transmitter’s output signal.
10.1.2. When the transmitter is in use the term “set range” is used. The set range is the range whose lower
end-point corresponds to an output current of 4mA and whose upper end-point corresponds to a current of
20mA (or 20mA and 4mA respectively when the conversion curve is inverted).
The set range may cover the whole of the basic range or only a part of it.
The width of the set range is the difference between its upper and lower end-points.
The transmitter may be set to any range within the basic range of pressure values, subject to the restrictions set
out in the table in section 5.2.1, 5.3.1, 5.3.2, 5.4.1, and 5.5.1.

DTR.APC.APR.ALW.03(ENG)
10.2. Configuration and Calibration
10.2.1. The transmitter has features which enable metrological and identification parameters to be set and
altered. The configurable metrological parameters affecting the transmitter’s output current include
the following:
a) unit in which the measured pressure is expressed on the display;
b) upper end-point of the set range;
c) lower end-point of the set range;
d) time constant;
e) type of characteristic curve: linear or radical.
Parameters of an informational nature which cannot be altered include the following:
f) upper limit of the basic range;
g) lower limit of the basic range;
h) minimum range.
10.2.2. Other identification parameters, not affecting the output signal, include: device address, device type
code, factory identification code, factory device code, number of preambles (3÷20), UCS, TSD, program
version, electronics version, flags, serial number, label tag, description tag, date tag, message, record number,
sensing module number.
The process of setting the parameters listed in 10.2.1 and 10.2.2 is called “Configuration”.
10.2.3. It is possible to carry out a “pressure zeroing” procedure, for example to compensate for
measurement deviation caused by a change in position during the transmitter installation.
The transmitter may also be calibrated, by taking readings with the input pressure controlled using a standard
device. These process and zero-point adjustments are called “Calibration”.
10.2.4. Configuration and Calibration of the transmitter are carried out using an Aplisens KAP communicator,
certain HART communicators or a PC with HART/RS232 converter and Aplisens “Raport 2” software.
Together with the “Raport 2” configuration software there is „INTERVAL LINEARIZATION” software supplied to
enable the input of 21-point nonlinear functional characteristics to the transmitter.
A description of the functions of the KAP communicator is contained in the KAP Communicator Operating
Manual, and information on the HART/RS232 converter can be found on the HART/RS232/01 Converter
information sheet.
10.2.5. TRANSMITTER CONFIGURATION WITH USING ITS BUTTONS AND LOCAL MENU
10.2.5.1. Local menu - structure. Local configuration of transmitters.

10.2.6. View local LCD display
Changes of the display options in local MENU are possible using buttons, or remote way using communicator,
or the PC software. If it is necessary the display switching off is also possible. The display switching of function
is possible with using communicator or PC software only.
The APC..., APR... transmitter display exterior is as bellow.
There 3 main displays are visible:

LCD1 – the current or guidance percent preset range display. In accordance with display
configuration the current value in 4-20 mA current loop, or percent guidance preset range is possible
to display.

LCD2 – the measured pressure digital value display; the calibrated pressure value according to
user’s unit’s display; the process variable units, or user’s units, or pressure sensor or CPU
temperature; the MENU announcement and other information or warning announcement display. In
the case the digital pressure value or the calibrated pressure value display, the sign „–„ can be visible
before displayed value. The decimal point position is possible to set in local MENU or remotely. The
pressure unit or user’s unit can be displayed. The transmitter makes possible rescale on the user's
individual the pressure value. To make this is necessary with using communicator or PC software
write the corresponding to beginning and to end values of setting range as well as write the own unit
name. After activating user's mode the rescale value will be visible on display.

LCD3 – information display. During normal operation is designed for continuous display of the base unit
or the user units. In case of errors in the transmitter's work, it displays an error number. In manual mode,
the local change settings menu displays options of selecting the setting. It also displays errors related to
the implementation of commands in the local menu of the settings change.
Display backlighting - Local display is equipped in backlight. In “Version SC” it is possible to switching on and
switching off display backlighting via jumper on electronic board as required. How to handle display backlight is
shown in Figure 5. Figure 4 shows how to change the display position by rotation.
Warning!
Exceeding the basic transmitter measuring range over 50% range in the up or down is indicated
by " o V E r " or " u n d E r " in the display LCD2. Such situation is encountered most often when
overloaded a difference pressure transmitter, created when the large static pressure compared
to the pressure range will blockage or a leak in one of the capillaries.
After configuration it is important to protect the transducers using command HART [247]. During
work transmitter should be safe prior to entries. This prevents accidental or intentional changes
configurational data. The protection function is accessible in KAP03 communicator, “Raport 2”
software, as well as, in applying DD or DMT programs libraries.
10.2.7. Remote configuration

10.2.10. Configuration of the APR- 2000ALW transmitters for the flow measurements with
the orifice plate.
Orifice flow meters are based on the square root output signal from the differential pressure transmitters.
To archive this function you should:

Install the APR-2000 ALW transmitter to the flow measurement workstation with orifice;

Make the transmitter zeroing at the workstation; remotely using computer and Aplisens Raport 2 software or
locally with transmitter buttons according to p. 10.2.5 of the Manual;

Set the square root output transmitter signal and the cutoff point [in % FS]; remotely using computer and
Aplisens Raport 2 software according with p. 10.2.4 or locally with transmitter buttons (up to 1% only)
according to p. 10.2.5 of the Manual.
For transmitters with software from 1.9 version, the cutoff point setting means, that, when the pressure is increasing
from 0 to set cutoff point (n%FS), the output signal is zero (4mA), but in the setting cutoff point and above its,
the transmitter output signal passes to the square root output for the current transmitter output, and to the linear output
for the HART transmitter output. If the pressure on orifice falls below the n%FS setting minus 0.2% (hysteresis),
the output transmitter signal will switch to zero (4mA). The cutoff operation algorithm on the analog output signal
example is shown at the below figure.
Description:
I [mA] – analog output signal; loop current [4-20 mA] or A [%];
n% - cutoff point at square root output transmitter signal;
PV or Z [%] - axis of the process variable in user unit or in percent of the set range;
LRV – Lower Range Value; the lower value of the pressure set range (corresponds to the 4 mA current
output signal);
URV – Upper Range Value; the upper value of the pressure set range (corresponds to the 20 mA current
output signal).

a pressure decrease
10.3. Alarms
Alarms signal exceeding the limits of the transmitter correct operation or non-functioning some of its
components. Menu of APC..., APR... transmitters contains the following alarms: HART modem error, ADC
error (error of A /D converter), EEPROM error, error of the oscillator, DS33 error (check the correctness of
floating point calculations). Errors reveal themselves by issuing in the transmitter current line: 22mA (high
alarm) or 3,6mA (low alarm), and signalling an error code on the display. Alarm current in the output transmitter
line of 3.6 (low) or 22mA (high) can be set using the Raport 2 configuration program, or the currents alarm
settings in transmitter should be agreed with the producer. Exceeding of the basic pressure range of over 50%
is indicated on the transmitter display by code E0256 and alarm current in the measuring line; exceeding of the
measuring ranges in MID pressure transmitters is described in MID Appendix.

11. INSPECTIONS AND SPARE PARTS
11.1. Periodic service
Periodic inspections should be made in accordance with the regulations to which the user is subject. During
inspection, the pressure connectors should be checked for loose connections and leaks, the electrical
connectors should be checked with regard to tightness and the state of the gaskets, cable glands, and the
diaphragm seals should be checked for tarnishing and corrosion.
Check the characteristic conversion curve by following the procedures for “Calibration” and, where appropriate,
“Configuration”.
11.2. Other services
i
If the transmitters are installed in a location where they may be exposed to mechanical damage, excess
pressure, hydraulic impulses or excess voltage, or the diaphragm may be in danger from sedimentation,
crystallization or erosion, inspections should be carried out as required.
Where it is found that the signal in the transmission line is absent or its value is incorrect, a check should
be made on the line and its terminal connections.
Check whether the values of the supply voltage and load resistance are correct.
If a communicator is connected to the power supply line of the transmitter, a fault in the line may be
indicated by the message “No response” or “Check connection”.
If the line is in order, check the operation of the transmitter.
11.3. Cleaning the Diaphragm Seal, Overloading Damage
11.3.1. Sediment and dirt which have formed on the diaphragm in the course of operation must not be removed
by mechanical means, as this may damage both the diaphragm and the transmitter itself.
The only permitted method is the dissolving of sediment.
11.3.2. Sometimes transmitters malfunction due to damage caused by overloading, e.g. in case of :
- Application of excessive pressure;
- Freezing or solidification of the medium;
- Action of a hard object, such as a screwdriver, on the diaphragm.
Usually in such cases the symptoms are such that the output current falls below 4mA or rises above 20mA,
and the transmitter fails to respond to input pressure.
11.4. Spare parts
Parts of the transmitter which may be subject to wear or damage and require replacement: cover gasket.
i
Other listed parts, due to the specific features and requirements of explosion-protected devices,
may be replaced only by the manufacturer or by a firm authorized by the manufacturer.
12. PACKING, STORAGE AND TRANSPORT
The transmitters should be packed singly or in sets, in such a way as to protect them from damage during
transportation.
The transmitters should be stored in multiple packs under cover, in a place free of vapours and reactive
substances, with temperature and humidity not exceed the limits specified in p. 5.2.2 for APC… or p. 5.3.3 and
5.4.2 for APR….
Transmitters with uncovered diaphragm or seal connectors, stored without packaging, should have covers to
prevent damage to the diaphragm.
During transportation, the transmitters should be packed and secured so as to prevent them from shifting.
Any means of transport may be used, provided direct atmospheric effects are eliminated.
13. GUARANTEE
The manufacturer reserves the right to make constructional and technological changes which do not lower the
quality of the transmitters
C1
