Module Description
1.1
FieldQ™ FOUNDATION Fieldbus™ QC54 Control Module
This manual contains installation, operating, and
maintenance information for the FieldQ™
FOUNDATION Fieldbus™ QC54 control module (Fig. 1).
Only qualified personnel should install, operate, and
maintain this module. If you have any questions
concerning these instructions or for information not
contained in this instruction manual, contact your local Valve Automation sales office or sales representative for more information.
The FieldQ module is an interoperable, processcontrolling, communicating, microprocessor-based,
module. In addition to its primary function of controlling the position of the valve, the FieldQ module, using FOUNDATION Fieldbus™ communications protocol,
gives easy access to information critical to process
operation, as well as process control. You can gain
information from the principal component of the
process, the control valve itself, by using a personal
computer or operator’s console within the control
room.
Using a compatible field bus configuration device, you
can obtain information about the health of the module
and the actuator and valve control elements. You can
also obtain asset information about the module. You
can set input and output configuration parameters.
Using the FOUNDATION Fieldbus™ protocol, information from the module can be readily integrated into a
control system.
The FieldQ module is an assembly in an IP66 /
NEMA4X enclosure that provides input and output
signals to control and monitor the FieldQ actuator.
The module is self-contained providing control and
position feedback via the Field bus interface.
Figure 1.2 provides a view of the module with key
connection points labeled. Connect to the module
by removing the cover, inserting the wiring through
the electrical entries and connecting each wire to the
proper location on the terminal board.
More information about installing a module can be
found in chapter 2.
After installing the module, the module can be commissioned by following the instructions as per chapter
3. All functions of the module are explained in more
detail in Chapter 4 which includes the full Resource
block and Transducer block tables.

1.2Foundation Fieldbus™ Communication
The FieldQ QC54 module uses the Foundation Fieldbus™ protocol to communicate with other field devices and the host system. Foundation Fieldbus™ is
an all-digital, serial, two-way communication system,
which interconnects field equipment such as transmitters, valve controllers, and process controllers. Field
bus is a local-area network (LAN) for devices used
in both process and manufacturing automation with
built-in capability to distribute the control application
across the network.
The field bus environment is the base level group of
digital networks in the hierarchy of plant networks.
The field bus retains the desirable features of analog
systems such as:
 A standardized physical interface to the wire
 Bus-powered devices on a single wire pair
 Intrinsic safety options
In addition, use of FOUNDATION Fieldbus™ enables:
 Increased capabilities due to full digital communications
 Reduced wiring and wire terminations due to multiple devices on a single pair of wires
 Increased selection of suppliers due to interoperability
 Reduced loading on control room equipment available by distributing control and input/output functions to field devices
 Speed options for process control and manufacturing applications
For more information on the operation of the FOUNDATION Fieldbus™, refer to your DeltaV documentation
and the FOUNDATION Fieldbus™ specifications.

Device Description and Methods
This manual describes device setup using the Device
Descriptions (DD) specified by the FOUNDATION Fieldbus™ protocol. Parameter access and methods are
also described in this manual. FOUNDATION Fieldbus™
uses the DD, Function Blocks, and a Capabilities
File to achieve interoperability between the module
and field bus components from other manufacturers in the control systems including hosts and other
devices. The DD provides information to describe
the data interface to the device while the Capabilities
File provides information about the device to enable
the creation of a control strategy without a physical
device (off-line configuration).
Page 6
For field bus devices, in addition to providing parameter definitions and other information required by the
control system to communicate with the device, the
DD may also include methods. Methods can be used
for a variety of functions including remote restarting
of the control module. Methods are a predetermined
sequence of steps using a structured programming
language and the interface definition for the module.
How the method prompts and how messages appear
is determined by the host system. For information on
using methods on the host system, see Appendix E
and the appropriate host system documentation.
1.5Foundation Fieldbus™ function
blocks
Function blocks, within a field bus device, perform the
various functions required for process control, such
as process variable input, output, and control functions such as Proportional/Integral/Derivative (PID)
functions. The standard function blocks provide a
common structure for defining function block inputs,
outputs, control parameters, events, alarms, and
modes. Then, function blocks can be combined into
a process that can be implemented within a single
device or in multiple devices via the field bus network.
The following function blocks are implemented in the
FieldQ module.
 Resource Block (RB)
 Transducer Block (TB)
 Analog Input (AI) Function Block
 Discrete Output (DO) Function Block
 2x Discrete Input (DI) Function Block
 PID Function Block
Function Block parameters and usage is described in
the host system documentation. Please refer to this
documentation for detailed information on function
blocks.

Initialization (calibration) procedure
Initialization sets automatically the switch points for
the position feedback of the actuator (see fig. 3.1)
Additionally, initialization checks if the actuator and
control module configuration match. This procedure
will detect the action type (Fail-Open, Fail-Close or
Fail in last position) and generate an alert if there is a
configuration issue.
This process is done automatically, by the module,
however, the user must start it and the unit must be
wired according chapter 2.
Digital communication is not required but power supply is necessary (9V to 32V DC).
The initialization process can be started in one of two
ways:
1.Initialization using the local buttons (see §3.2.1).
2.Initialization using a bus command (see §3.2.2).

If the device is in Shutdown
When the device is in Shutdown, an internal failure
has occurred.
If the internal failure is re-solved, the actuator shutdown status will be automatically reset.
If you want to capture the internal failure of the device, you can set the device to Manual-Recovery as
described in 4.2.3.3 (in Manual-Recovery).
1 Normally the SHUTDOWN_RESET parameter is
inactive. For reseting the shutdown status parameter SHUTDOWN_RESET must be set to "Reset".
2 When this reset is completed succesfully, the
SHUTDOWN_STATUS parameter will be FieldQ
operational and SHUTDOWN_RESET parameter
will return to inactive.
If the problem persists, please contact your local

4.1.4Alerts
The FieldQ QC54 Control module with Foundation
Fieldbus™ communication features diagnostic capabilities combined with PlantWeb™ Alerts.
The FieldQ™ QC54 Control module generates a
recommended action after an internal error has
occurred, timer or counter limits have exceeded or
when the initialization has failed
A full list of Alerts and Recommended Actions, combined with the Alert Default Setting is shown in table
4.3.
™
4.1.4.1 Alert handling
The Resource Block will act as a coordinator/collector for (PlantWeb™) alerts (see resource block index
numbers 77 to 92).
Although the alerts have default settings (see table
4.3), these levels can be set by the customer to
match their requirements.
There are three levels of alerts available:
1 Failed Alerts
A Failure Alert indicates a failure within a device
that will make the device or some part of the device non-operational.
This implies that the device is in need of repair
and must be fixed immediately.
This alert has the following five parameters:
1FAILED_ENABLE:Enable the indication and
reporting
2FAILED_MASK :Suppress reporting
3FAILED_PRI
:Designates the priority
4FAILED_ACTIVE :Displays which of the conditions within the alert is active.
5FAILED_ALM
:To report the particular failed
condition to the host system.
2 Maintenance Alerts
A Maintenance Alert indicates a condition within
a device that, if not attended to in the near future
(the type of alert defines the time period for “Near
Future”) will make the device or some part of the
device non-operational.
This implies that the device is in need of repair
and must be fixed as soon as possible.
This alert has the following five parameters:
1MAINT_ENABLE:Enable the indication and
reporting
2MAINT_MASK :Suppress reporting
3MAINT_PRI
:Designates the priority
4MAINT_ACTIVE :Displays which of the conditions within the alert is active.
5MAINT_ALM
:To report the particular failed
condition to the host system.
3 Advisory Alerts
An Advisory Alert indicates a condition within a
device that is informational in nature. The alert is
used to notify the host that the device has detected a condition within the device that is not
critical, will not cause a failure if left unattended
but should be reported to the host for awareness
and possible action.
This alert has the following five parameters:
1ADVISE_ENABLE:Enable the indication and
reporting
2ADVISE_MASK :Suppress reporting
3ADVISE_PRI
:Designates the priority
4ADVISE_ACTIVE:Displays which of the conditions within the alert is active.
5ADVISE_ALM :To report the particular failed
condition to the host system.

4.1.4.2 Alert parameter describtion.
1 Alerts - Enabled
These parameters are used to enable the indication and reporting of each corresponding alert.
When a alert is disabled, the device shall not
detect that particular alert, it shall not be indicated
in the (FAILED_ACTIVE, MAINT_ACTIVE or
ADVISE_ACTIVE parameters or be reported via
respectively Failed Alerts, Maintenance Alerts or
Advisory Alerts.
If an alert enable parameter is changed to ‘disabled’ while the alert is active, it shall clear the
alert and re-evaluate the alert. (Writable, only
affects the applicable condition modified. When set
the condition will not be indicated or reported).
2 Alerts - masked:
These parameters will mask any of the failed conditions listed in respectively Failed Alerts, Maintenance Alerts or Advisory Alerts.
Setting a bit to true, will cause the corresponding alert to be indicated in the (FAILED_ACTIVE,
MAINT_ACTIVE or ADVISE_ACTIVE parameters
but it will not be reported to the host via Failed
Alerts, Maintenance Alerts or Advisory Alerts.
If an alert mask is changed while the alert is active, the alert is cleared and all the conditions are
reevaluated. (Writable, only affects the applicable
condition modified. When set the condition will be
indicated however, it will not be reported).
3 Alerts - Priority:
Designates the priority of the Failed, Maintenance
or Advisory Alerts. The default is 2 and the recommended value is between 10 and 15. (Writable,
changes the priority of the applicable alert).
4 Alerts - Active:
These parameters displays which of the conditions within the Failed, Maintenance or Advisory
Alerts is active. When a device detects a condition
has become active, it shall set the corresponding
bit in the Failed, Maintenance or Advisory Alerts
- Active parameters. If it is not suppressed, it will
be reported using the associated alert parameter.
(Read Only)
5 Alert Alarm:
These parameter are used to report the particular failed condition to the host. (Read Only). For
parameter structure see table 4.2.
4.1.5
NAMUR NE- 107 Alarms
This section describes the parameter interaction to
implement a FieldQ™ QC54 Control module to the
NAMUR NE-107 requirements as a parameter group
in the Resource Block. There are four alarm categories defined as per the NE-107 specification, Failed,
Off Specification, Maintenance, and Check function.
Maintenance
Although the output signal is valid,
the wear reserve is nearly exhausted or a functions will soon be
restricted due to operational conditions e.g. build-up of deposits
Off
Specification
Off-spec means that the device is
operating outside its specified range
or an internal diagnostic indicates
deviations from measured or set
values due to internal problems in
the device or process characteristics (e.g. bubble formation in flow
metering or valve sticking).
Check Function
Output signal temporarily invalid
(e.g. frozen) due to on-going work
on the device.
Failed
Output signal invalid due to malfunction in the field device or its
peripherals.

Each of these categories share 32 conditions that can
be defined by the device manufacturer.
Each condition may be mapped or not mapped for
each category. If a condition is mapped then it is
indicated in the* ACTIVE parameter. If the condition in the * ACTIVE parameter is not masked by the
corresponding bit in the *_MASK parameter then the
condition will be queued for broadcast using the corresponding *ALM parameter at the associated priority
indicated by *PRI parameter. The 4 categories are
defined below.
The conditions are not expected to identify explicitly
the root cause of the condition, but rather to identify it
in terms of:
• Replace the device
• Replace a part of the device
• Correct a configuration problem
• Fix something outside of the device
The above list is all that the operator needs to know
to restore his process functionality and if there are
more than 31 device conditions they should be
grouped by definition into these bits.

Then using the EXTENDED parameters in the resource block, more detailed information can be made
available about the conditions for a maintenance
person to get to the root of the problem.
The Common Practice Parameters named FD_EXTENDED_ACTIVE_n which are similar to the
BLOCK_ERR_DESC_n parameter in function, are
used to describe what lower level conditions are
causing the condition in the FD_FAIL_ACTIVE,
FD_MAINT_ACTIVE, FD_OFFSPEC_ACTIVE, or FD
CHECKACTIVE to be true.

NAMUR NE107 Alarm parameters
A parameter equal to the value of the major version of the Field
Diagnostics specification that this device was designed to.
This parameter reflects the error conditions that are being detected as
active as selected for this category. It is a bit string, so that multiple
conditions may be shown.
This parameter maps conditions to be detected as active for this alarm
category. Thus the same condition may be active in all, some, or none
of the 4 alarm categories.
This parameter allows the user to suppress any single or multiple
conditions that are active, in this category, from being broadcast to the
host through the alarm parameter. A bit equal to ‘1’ will mask i.e. inhibit
the broadcast of a condition, and a bit equal to ‘0’ will unmask i.e. allow
broadcast of a condition.

4.2
Transducer block
The Transducer Block manages data that moves
between a function block and the device input/output (I/O) such as sensors and position switches that
provide process data for automated process control.
Transducer blocks control access to I/O devices
through a device independent interface and manufacturer specific parameters defined for use by function
blocks. Transducer blocks also perform functions,
such as calibration and linearization, on I/O data to
convert it to a device independent representation.
The transducer block to function blocks interface is
defined as one or more implementation independent
channels.
The parameters for configuring the Transducer Block
are referenced by group within the following sections.
- For complete details of the parameters listed, see
table 4.1.
- Refer to the applicable host documentation for
procedures to access the referenced parameters.

If the default configuration is not sufficient for your application, the switch points can be configured.
For the QC54 Module, there are three topics concerning the configuration of the switch points.
1 Mechanical limit stops.
Normally the mechanical limit stops limit the stroke
of the actuator. (To adjust the mechanical limit
stops see DOC.IOM.Q.1 chapter 3).
If the mechanical limit stop setting is changed, or
the valve does not reach the fully open or closed
positions (due to wear in the valve), the Open and
Closed end positions have to be re-configured to
assure position feedback.
2 "Open" and "Closed" end positions.
There are two procedures to re-configure the end
positions:
1 If it is safe to cycle the actuator, perform the initialization procedure (see §3.2).
2 If it is not safe to cycle the actuator, perform the
following re-assignment procedure:
1 Go to Configure/Manual Setup/Switch Points/
Change Switch Points.
2 In case the "Open" position needs an update:
Set sub parameter OPEN_END_POSITION of
parameter CFG_SWITCH_POINTS to:
"set to current position".
3 In case the "Closed" position needs an update:
Set sub parameter CLOSED_END_POSITION
of parameter CFG_SWITCH_POINTS to:
"set to current position".
3 "Open" and "Closed" stop offset.
The "Open" or "Closed" offset value is the number
of degrees before the end of stroke within which
the switches will be activated or deactivated. Default values for both positions are (see figure 4.1):
- Default offset 10° before end of stroke.
- Adjustable range 5° to 30° before end of
stroke
Sub parameters OPEN_STOP_OFFSET and
CLOSED_STOP_OFFSET can be used to change
the end stop offsets and can be set per ° (degree)

4.2.3.3SHUTDOWN-CFG
Shutdown configuration controls the behavior of the
FieldQ™ actuator in case of an internal communications failure in the QC54 module. This is independent
of the FF communication on the bus line.
This set of parameters can overrule the Failure
modes of the basic actuator, as described in the
FieldQ™ IOM manual, chapter 2.2 (DOC.IOM.Q1).
1 General working of Shutdown configuration.
Shutdown configuration can work in three configurations, as set by the SHUTDOWN_ENABLE parameter:
- Enable, auto recovery
- Enable, manual recovery
-Disable.
Enable : After an internal failure, the setting of parameter SHUTDOWN_ACTION will be executed.
Auto Recovery : When the internal failure is solved,
the actuator will automatically go to its current set
point position.
Manual Recovery : When the internal failure is
solved, the actuator shutdown status must be manually reset.
Normally the SHUTDOWN_RESET parameter is
inactive. For resetting the shutdown status this
parameter must be set to Reset. When this reset is
completed successfully, the SHUTDOWN_STATUS
parameter will be Device operational and SHUTDOWN_RESET parameter will return to inactive.
Disable : Shutdown functionality is not operational,
the actuator will stay in its last position after an internal failure.
Parameter SHUTDOWN_DELAY_TIME defines a
delay time (up to 4 minutes and 15 seconds) between
the time the internal failure is detected by transducer
block parameter XD_ERROR (I/O Failure) and the
time that the unit will go in "Shutdown".
The sequence of events for 2 shutdown configurations is shown in figures 4.4 and 4.5.
2 Factory default Shutdown configuration setting

* Means that 4 seconds after an internal failure is detected,
DOUBLE ACTING AND SPRING RETURN (Single acting)
actuators will go to the closed position, when pressure is
available at the actuator,
and
* After the internal communications are re-established, the
shutdown status must be reset.
Important
* If feedback is reversed, the SHUT-DOWN_ACTION is
following the latest feedback switch points automatically.

4.2.3.4ZERO_PWR_COND
This parameter helps identifying whether the device
setup matches the actual mechanical configuration of
the actuator;
- Fail in Last Position for double acting actuators.
- Fail-to-Close or Fail-to-Open for single acting actuators.
This parameter indicates the position where the
actuator/valve unit will move to, when no power is
present (air pressure should be present for DA).
- The value is set during initialization and position
re-assignment and is valid for valve applications
which close after a clockwise (CW) rotation and the
operation of the valve may be Fail-to-Close or Failto-Open.
- For applications which close after a counter clock
wise (CCW) rotation, the indication will be reversed
after initialization. This can be corrected by reassigning the end positions as described in §3.4.3.
4.2.3.5BUTTONBOARD_ENABLE
The button board can be set to:
- Enabled when in OOS (factory default)

Diagnostic configuration
This section describes the counter and timer parameters. The description how to set alerts and generate
the recommended actions can be found in §4.1.4.
4.2.4.1Counters
Four counter parameters are available for counting
the cycles of the :
1 Control module
2 Actuator 3 Pneumatic module
4Valve.
The Control (function) Module counter is the master
counter and is read only. The other three counters
can each be reset independently when required (e.g.
replacement).
These counter parameters have :
- a sub parameter which records the cycles.
- a sub parameter to set a limit value.
When one of the set limits is exceeded an alert and a
recommended action message will be generated as
per table 4.3 and as per alert setting ( see §4.2.5).
For the default setting and adjustable range, see
table 4.2. index 36, 37, 38 and 39.
Page 28
4.2.4.2Timers
There are 3 timers available in this device:
1 Time in position (TIME_IN_POSITION)
- Records the time since the last movement.
It is reset to zero when the power is switched off.
- In sub parameter TIME_IN_POSITION_HI_LIM, a
limit can be set.
2 Open travel time (OPEN_TRAVEL_TIME)
- Indicates the time between:
When pilot valve position is changed and when the
Open trip position reached.
- In parameters OPEN_TRAVEL_TIME_HI_LIM and
OPEN_TRAVEL_TIME_LO_LIM, high en low limits
can be set.
- Parameter OPEN_TRAVEL_TIME_AVG calculates
the average stroke time of the last 30 strokes.
- In parameters OPEN_TRAVEL_AVG_HI_LIM and
OPEN_TRAVEL_AVG_LO_LIM, high en low limits
can be set.
3 Close travel time (CLOSE_TRAVEL_TIME)
- Indicates the time between:
When pilot valve position is changed and when the
Closed trip position reached.
- In sub parameter CLOSE_TRAVEL_TIME_HI_LIM
and CLOSE_TRAVEL_TIME_LO_LIM, high en low
limits can be set.
- Parameter CLOSE_TRAVEL_TIME_AVG calculates the average stroke time of the last 30 strokes.
- In parameters CLOSE_TRAVEL_AVG_HI_LIM and
CLOSE_TRAVEL_AVG_LO_LIM, high en low limits
can be set.
When the limits of the above timers are exceeded,
and the alerts are enabled, alerts and recommended
action messages will be generated as per table 4.3
and as per alert setting (see §4.1.4).

Alerts
Alert default setting
Internal communications are lost, device will act
according to shutdown configuration.
rb_NV_write_deferred
Output Board NV
Memory Failure
NV Write Deferred:
A high number of writes has been detected to
non-volatile memory. To prevent premature failure
of the memory, the write operations have been
deferred. The data will be saved about every 3
hours.
This condition usually exists because a program
has been written that writes to control block
parameters not normally expected to be written
to on a cyclic basis. Any such automated write
sequence should be modified to write the
parameter(s) only when needed.
It is recommended that you limit the number
of periodic writes to all static or non-volatile
parameters such as HI_HI_LIM, LOW_CUT, SP,
TRACK_IN_D, OUT, IO_OPTS, BIAS, STATUS_
OPTS, SP_HI_LIM, and so on.
If PWA simulate mode has been activated.
The PWA active parameters can now be
written as well as the resource block detailed
status parameters and the internal alerts in the
Transducer Block where the PWA active alarms
originate from.
Output Board NV Memory Failure:
"Non-volatile EEPROM data corruption was
detected on the Fieldbus Electronics Board.
Default values were loaded into the faulty block.
1. Check the device configuration for changes in
the block parameter values.
2. Reset the device to clear the error.
3. Download a Device Configuration.
NOTE: If the failure reoccurs it may indicate a
faulty EEPROM memory chip.
Output Board Electronics Failure:
The Device has detected a fault with an electrical
component on the Fieldbus Electronics Module
Assembly. Replace the Device.

Operations and Maintenance
5.1
Fault state
The fault state parameter, when active, indicates
a loss of communication to an output block, a fault
promoted to an output block, or loss of a physical
contact. If the fault state is active, the output function
blocks perform their Fault State actions. Selecting
the feature Fault State enables the ability to manually set and clear the fault state of the device. Setting the Set Fault State parameter to “Set” manually
places the instrument in the fault state. Setting the
Clear Fault State parameter to “Clear” clears the
device fault state if no faults are currently active. You
can test the actions the output blocks will perform by
manually setting the fault state active.
5.2
Restart method
The following method is provided with the FieldQ
Module Device Description:
 Restart
Method Description:
 Master Reset - Available via the Resource Block,
the Master Reset method is required for restarting the module without removing power. It also
allows the user to set data within the module to its
default state. In addition to restarting the module,
this method also performs module integrity tests
to verify that it is acceptable to restart the module.
This method is only available via the Resource
Block and is described in detail in the detailed
setup section (§ 4.1).
5.3
Software restart
There are several Restart options as described
bellow. This can be done via parameter RESTART
(index 16) in the Resource block. The following is a
brief description for each of the restart options:
 Resource - Performing a “Resource”-restart has
no observable effect on the module resetting the
dynamic variables in the Function Blocks. However, the dynamic variable within the module are reset and this could cause a “bump” in your process.
 Processor - Performing a “Restart Processor” has
the same effect as removing power from the module and re-applying power. This is typically used
to restart the Foundation Fieldbus Interface card
should the Interface Card and the Module I/O card
get out of sync due to incorrect power application.
 Defaults - Performing a “Restart with Defaults”
should be done with care. This restart sets the
static parameters of the function blocks in the
module to their default state. It also disconnects all
links within the module. After performing a “Restart
with Defaults”, a “Restart Processor” should be
performed. Within the FieldQ Series of modules,
the “Restart with Defaults” option is the only option
that will read certain data from the FieldQ Communications board.
 Actuator Processor - Performing a “Actuator
Processor”-Restart has the same effect as removing power from the control part of the module and
re-applying power. This is typically used to restart
the control part of the module.
 Actuator Defaults - Performing a "Actuator
Defaults”-restart should be done with care. This
restart sets the switch point to default (see §3.2).

Restarting the module
You can restart the module via different mechanisms. Depending on which restart option is used;
the communication links, static parameters, etc. may
be affected. However, due to the effect that a restart
can have on the module, and therefore the process,
restarting the module should be used cautiously.
WARNING
Restarting the FieldQ may cause
loss of control of the process.
