The MCULOG will be calculating the flow rate.
See pages 8/9.
Navigate the menu system to get to the “Duty Wizard”
screen. Key-press hints are alongside the screens.
Start the “Duty” Wizard by pressing the yellow (ENTER) key once.
Work through the “Duty” Wizard prompts until completion; this occurs when the menu system re-appears. Keypad
hints, for the illustrated Wizard sequence on the next page, are provided alongside the prompts. If applicable, adapt
the example to suit your application.
Circled numbers in the illustrated Wizard sequence relate to these notes:
c Select “Flow” from the multiple-choice list.
d Enter the maximum rate of flow.
e Enter the present height of maximum flow in the Flume.
f Option of registering flow as 0 m3/s on the MCULOG while the measured flow rate is below a programmed cut off.
g Programme the 4-20mA output span with a flow rate range (e.g. 0 m3/s to 1 m3/s)
h Option to set-up a relay to output (100ms) pulses representing the totalised flow.
Return to the main menu by holding the ESC key for a few seconds, releasing it when the main menu appears. Next, go
on-line by selecting the “Go on-line” menu option and then pressing the ENTER key once. Finally, press the ESC key
repeatedly until the primary display appears. The flow measurement will be live on the primary display.

Application Example: Flow Measurements using Duty Wizard
January 2006
Application/Duty: Logging
The MCULOG will log up to 4,800 events, where an event is the value of the Primary Variable (PV) at regular intervals; the
logging interval is user-defined (P590). An interval value of 15 minutes will log the PV at 15-minute intervals, which equates to
50 days elapsed time.
If the MCULOG has been set-up to totalise the PV (see pages 6/7), the daily value of the totaliser at midnight is also logged. Up
to 60 midnight totalised values will be held in memory. (This is in addition to the 4,800 sample memory.)
In addition, the maximum instantaneous value of PV recorded in each 24-hour period is logged.
It is recommended that the Mobrey Measurement’s PC software, Mobrey Log-View, is used to download and view data. See
data sheet IP122.
Data Logging Indicator
The MCULOG gives a visual indication that logging of data is underway by flashing the “LOG” text in the bottom, right-hand
corner of the display.
Fast Log Mode
Should the PV exceed a user-entered value (P591), the MCULOG automatically moves to a fast log mode and then logs the
PV once every minute until the PV falls below that user-entered value. Fast log values are flagged so that they are easily
identified when examining logged data via Mobrey Log-View.
Memory Nearly Full Alarm
The user may allocate an alarm to indicate when the memory remaining reaches a user-defined percentage (P593). The user
must also set the action to be taken when this occurs. A choice of activating a relay, driving the output current to a set level or
doing both is available (P542).
If no action is taken, the memory will fill up and then either logged data will be overwritten or the logging will stop, as determined
by parameter P592.
Download of Logged Data
Logged data may be downloaded at any time using the RS232 data port socket provided. Users will normally download data
using a handheld communicator or a PC loaded with logger software Mobrey Log-View.
Starting, stopping and resetting the logger
To start logging, simply change the logging interval (P590) from 0 to the interval required. Logging is now activated.
To stop logging, simply change the logging interval (P590) back to 0. Note, when the logging interval is re-set, all logged data
will be cleared from the logging memory.
The MCULOG can be re-set by changing the log interval from 0 to a logging interval in minutes which will clear all data logged
(i.e. clear the 4,800 sample memory plus the 60 midnight totals).
Changing the log interval from a non-zero interval (e.g. 15 minutes) to a new non-zero interval (e.g. 5 minutes) will clear the
sample data only (i.e. clear the 4,800 sample memory).

Other Features
Restoring factory defaults (Erases all user-entered data)
To re-set the MCULOG unit back to the factory defaults, navigate to the “Load Defaults” screen and press the ENTER key twice.
Navigating to the LOAD DEFAULTS Screen
PIN Security
Personal Identification Number (PIN) security prevents unauthorised people from programming the MCULOG control unit.
Typically, this is set-up when all the other programming has been completed. As with Bankcards, there is one PIN number.
The factory default is for PIN security to be inactive. To activate, navigate the menu system to the PIN screen and edit a 4-digit
personal identification number (PIN) that you want. The PIN is edited with the arrow keys and confirmed with the ENTER key;
the 4-digit PIN will then be replaced by “- - - -’’ to indicate that PIN security is active. (By default, PIN is a 0 if inactive).
Once PIN security is activated, a prompt for the PIN will appear when needed for an activity, such as starting a Wizard. If
correctly entered, no further PIN requests are made unless the “Cancel Password” option is selected from the MAIN MENU
screen. This menu option appears only after correctly entering the PIN; the option disappears when selected, therefore making
the MCULOG secure and prompt for the PIN when needed.
Navigating to the PIN set-up screen
Modes of operation
There are two operating modes for the MCULOG. They are on-line and off-line.
An open padlock icon indicates the MCULOG is presently in the off-line mode. In this mode, the unit can be
programmed providing that you know the security PIN (if set-up). Additionally, the 4-20mA output and all relays
are frozen, but the MCULOG continues to log data.
A closed padlock icon indicates that the MCULOG is presently in the on-line mode. In this mode, most of the unit
cannot be programmed. However, you will be prompted to go off-line if you attempt to programme whilst in this
mode and providing that you know the security PIN (if set-up). Additionally, the 4-20mA output and all relays are
not frozen.
January 2006
Relay outputs 1 to 4 are normally On Point/Off Point relays which may be used to start/stop pumps. They normally energise at
one level and de-energise at a different level.
Alternatively, they may be programmed as out-of-limits alarms such that they are energised between defined points and will deenergise outside the defined limits. They may also be programmed to perform a variety of auto-sequences and auxiliary
functions, such as logging a memory nearly full alarm.
Relay output 5 is normally a fail safe fault relay but may be re-allocated to another duty.
Relays can be set-up easily using the Relay Wizard, accessible by navigating to the RELAYS menu screen.
Navigating to the RELAY Screen
Relay (RL) Status
The relay status icons on the primary display have the following meanings:
= energised
Relay is presently energised.
= de-energised
Relay is presently de-energised.
= Alarm
All active alarms can be viewed by parameter D831.
= Sampler
Relay is allocated to sampling duty.
= Totalising
Relay is allocated to totalising duty.
Comfort (System) Settings
The SETTINGS menu allows adjusting of the time and date, switching off the keyboard sound and changing language.
