COMMON FEATURES FOR CHARACTER BASED OPERATOR TERMINALS
PROGRAMMABILITY
ALARMS
Event Driven Configuration Tool
The Paradigm unit can monitor and log from 100 to 500 alarms, depending
on model. Such triggers as a simple bit level transition, a PLC coil activation,
or a complex application algorithm can activate an alarm. The alarms can be
time and date stamped, with an automatic screen display and/or downloading to
a printer for hard copy recording purposes.
Edict 97, an extremely powerful Windows 95/3.11 based software program,
provides for the intuitive configuration of every aspect of the operator
interface’s behavior. The requirement for time consuming PLC ladder logic is
drastically reduced by the unique event driven approach of EDICT 97. The
capability of this program, in conjunction with the PLC and the Paradigm
operator interface unit, ensures a great deal of advanced functionality for your
system. This powerful PLC/Paradigm system provides many of the capabilities
and features normally associated with the more complicated and costly
PC/SCADA systems. Display pages are easily generated, including PLC and
internal variables, text strings, or bar charts. All dynamic elements are also
available as alarms, recipes, triggers, and reports, for the run time software.
After completion of the programming, the program is directly downloaded to
the operator interface from your PC, without any compiling or saving
requirement. When you require a change in your program, EDICT 97 loads only
the change, not the entire program, saving valuable on-line time.
REAL TIME SCHEDULE
Real time schedule allows for repetitive or one time task to take place in the
system. Typically a schedule action similar to...At 1:55 PM on Monday,
Wednesday, and Friday, print the production report...is required in the
application. In conjunction with the recipe capabilities, a downloading of a
special recipe can be requested by the real time schedule feature.
USER PROGRAMS
This feature offers the user the ability to incorporate custom application
requirements via a powerful program language. For example, a program
designated “Calculate Volume” which determines the amount of fluid in a round
tank at specific temperatures could be created. This program would be triggered
to run and display each time the page denoted as “Volume Now” is requested.
The ability to customize to your application’s specialized needs is easily
solved with the user program capability.
DYNAMIC DISPLAY PAGE ELEMENTS
Each display page has provisions to show static and dynamic information,
including data variables, text messages, time, and date.
Data Variables can be either PLC derived or internally generated, either in data
entry or display only mode. The Paradigm unit has an extremely powerful
math capability, allowing the operator to manipulate the variables to meet the
specific application’s demands. If required, the display can be formatted to
BCD, binary, hex, floating point, and string. Upper and lower limits of data
entry variables are fully supported and able to be password protected.
KEYBOARD EDITING
All the interface keys can be programmed to perform virtually unlimited
functions with each key, having multiple actions assigned to three types of key
events: key pressed, key held down (auto repeat), and key released. Typical key
actions would be Go to page, set value, load recipe, view alarms, print report,
and many more.
Text Message Animation enables several different types of animated text from
a local or global message table to be displayed. The message displayed is
dependent on the condition of the particular controlling expression. The
controlling expression may be a PLC bit level, a timer value, preset counter
condition, or any one of a wide variety of message triggers.
COMMUNICATIONS
With over 70 communication drivers available, the Paradigm operator
interface offers a wide range of connectivity including: PLCs, Variable Speed
Drives, Temperature Controllers, Bar Code Readers, etc. Utilizing real PLC data
references, the automatic comms configuration optimizes the system’s
communication performance. In the event that your specific driver does not
appear on the Paradigm drivers list, let us know, as this list is always being
expanded to meet our customers’ needs.
Time and Date in the Paradigm unit has the capability to display in any
combination of year, month, day, hours, minutes, and seconds.
Bar Graphs in horizontal format are easily attached to data variables. The
partial or full length bar graph displays can be scaled and offset to optimize
the required display effect.
SECURITY
The password protection scheme provides the ultimate in tamper-proof
capability. Access can be limited on a unit, page, recipe, or even individual data
entries.

HARDWARE INFORMATION
INSTALLATION & CONNECTIONS
This bulletin contains a variety of information related to the installation and
operation of the Operator Interface supplied. Ideally, you should read this
document thoroughly before attempting to use the equipment. For information
about the software aspects of the terminal, please consult other documentation.
The unit meets NEMA 4/IP65 requirements for indoor use, when properly
installed. The units are intended to be mounted into an enclosed panel.
Installation Environment
The unit should be installed in a location that does not exceed the maximum
operating temperature and provides good air circulation. Placing the unit near
devices that generate excessive heat should be avoided.
Continuous exposure to direct sunlight may accelerate the aging process of
the bezel. The bezel should be cleaned only with a soft cloth and neutral soap
product. Do NOT use solvents.
Do not use tools of any kind (screwdrivers, pens, pencils, etc.) to operate the
keypad of the unit.
CONTENTS OF PACKAGE
The Operator Interface is supplied in a packaging box containing the
following...
! The interface terminal itself.
! A NEMA 4/IP65 rated mounting gasket.
! A bag containing panel hardware.
! This hardware bulletin.
! If any of these items is missing, please contact your supplier
immediately.
CONNECTING TO A PLC
The Operator Interface is designed to operate with a PLC. A serial
communication connection must be made between the operator interface
terminal and PLC, and the details of this connection vary according to which
PLC is used.
The following section lists the connection details for the PLC to be used .
POWER SUPPLY REQUIREMENTS
The Operator Interface requires an 11 to 30 VDC power supply rated at 3.0
W unless otherwise stated on the label.
! The terminal may take as little as 100 mA in certain circumstances, so be
sure that the chosen power supply can operate correctly with this load.
Large switch-mode supplies tend to need a certain minimum load before
they will operate correctly.
In any case, it is very important that the power supply is mounted correctly if
the unit is to operate reliably. A very high proportion of reported problems are
caused by incorrect power supply installation, so please take care to observe the
following points...
! The power supply must be mounted close to the unit, with usually not
more than 6 feet of cable between the supply and the Operator Interface.
Ideally, as short a length as is possible should be used.
! The wire used to connect the Operator Interface’s power supply should be
of at least 22 gage wire. If a longer cable run is used, you should use
heavier gage wire. The routing of the cable should be kept away from
large contactors, inverters and other devices which may generate
significant electrical noise.
PLC TYPE
Details on how to connect to most PLCs are available on request from RLC.
CONNECTING TO AN IBM® PC/AT
The Operator Interface is programmed via software running on an IBM
PC/AT or a compatible computer. The connection between the PC/AT and the
operator interface terminal is made via a custom cable provided with the EDICT
Developer’s Kit. The cable is designed for a 9-way serial port. Please contact
your supplier if you require a 25-way version.
PROGRAMMING PORT PIN OUT
The Operator Interface’s programming port is sometimes used to connect
other RS-232 devices, such as printers. The following illustration and table
gives the pin-out of this port to enable such connections to be made.
BATTERY BACKUP ISSUES
The Operator Interface is supplied with a Lithium Battery designed to
maintain the internal memory and real-time clock during power outages.
Assuming the operator interface terminal is powered up for 50% of the time, this
battery should last over 4 years. A “Battery Low” system variable is available
so that the programmer can choose specific action(s) to occur when the battery
voltage drops below its nominal voltage.
It is possible to replace the battery without losing the contents of the Operator
Interface’s memory, but this does not reduce the importance of ensuring that a
copy of the terminal’s configuration is kept readily at hand to allow the terminal
to be re-loaded in the case of mishaps. Please remember that although an image
of the database contents can be uploaded, this file is not editable, so the
importance of keeping a copy on disk cannot be over stressed.
The above table denotes the pin names of the programming port. When
connecting, the pin name at the programming port is connected to the opposite
of that pin name at the destination device.
CHANGING THE BATTERY
MOUNTING INSTRUCTIONS
To change the internal battery, follow these steps...
! Remove the power and PLC communications connector from the unit.
! Remove the four screws from the rear-cover and remove the cover.
! If you wish to avoid losing the terminal’s configuration, reconnect the
power connector and re-apply power. Note that this will require the panel
to be powered-up and, as such, only suitably qualified staff should carry
out this procedure.
! The battery is located in a holder on the main circuit board. This should
be clearly visible. Remove the battery from its holder.
! Place the new battery in the holder. The terminal’s power supply can
now be disconnected, if you re-applied power in the step above.
! Replace the lid, screws and connector by following the above procedure
in reverse. You may like to make a note of the date the battery was
replaced to allow planned maintenance to be carried out.
! If you did not keep the unit powered-up during battery replacement, hold
down the EXIT and MUTE keys on the keyboard and cycle power.
Release the keys and follow the menu guides to clear the memory. The
unit is now ready for a configuration database to be reloaded.
Please note that the old battery must be disposed of in a manner which
complies with your local waste regulations. Also, the battery must not be
disposed of in fire or in a manner whereby it may be damaged and its contents
come into contact with human skin.
The Operator Interfaces are designed for through-panel mounting. A
neoprene gasket is provided, to enable sealing to NEMA 4/IP65 specification.
The panel cut-out diagram for the model supplied is provided. All mounting
holes should be drilled for 0.14" (3.5 mm) clearance. Care should be taken to
remove any loose material from the mounting hole to avoid such metal falling
into the Operator Interface itself during installation.
