for safety reasons.
22.Under some circumstances, the power module heatsink temperature may rise above 50 degrees
Celsius. If operators are likely to come into contact with such heatsinks, adequate warnings and
barriers must be put in place in order to prevent injury.
23.In order to maintain protection against electrostatic discharge, any scratched or damaged inter
module ribbon cables must be replaced.
24.Signal and power voltage wiring must be kept separate from one another. Where this is
impractical, shielded cables should be used for the signal wiring.
25.This product has been designed for environment A (Industrial). Use of this product in
environment B (domestic, commercial and light industrial) may cause unwanted
electromagnetic disturbances in which cases the user may be required to take adequate
mitigation measures.
SELV
Safety Extra Low Voltage. This is defined (in EN60947-1) as an electrical circuit in which the voltage cannot
exceed ‘ELV’ under normal conditions or under single fault conditions, including earth faults in other circuits.
The definition of ELV is complex as it depends on environment, signal frequency etc. See IEC 61140 for
further details.

USER GUIDE
1 INTRODUCTION
This document describes the installation, operation and configuration of an EPower ‘station’ (Driver Module
plus one or more Power Modules). The Driver Module comes in one version, but the Power Modules are
available in a number of different power ratings, which are identical in operation and configuration, but
which differ in physical size according to the number of phases being controlled and the maximum current
being supplied. All but the 50 Amp and 100 Amp unit come with cooling fans attached.
The Driver Module includes the following analogue and digital inputs and outputs, fitted as standard:
10V supply
Two analogue inputs
One analogue output
Two digital Inputs/Outputs.
One change-over relay under software control, configurable by the user.
Also fitted are a Watchdog relay, a configuration port and an isolated EIA485 port for attaching an optional
Remote Display.
Three further (optional) I/O modules may be fitted, similar to the standard module but with the addition of
an output change-over relay. Other options provide for external voltage and current feedback and for
predictive load management.
Section two of this manual gives connector locations and pinouts.
The operator interface consists of a display comprising four lines of 10-characters (where each character is
formed using a 5 x 7 LCD dot matrix) and four push buttons for navigation and data selection.
1.1 UNPACKING THE UNITS
The units are despatched in a special pack, designed to give adequate protection during transit. If any of the
outer boxes show signs of damage, they should be opened immediately, and the instrument examined. If
there is evidence of damage, the instrument should not be operated and the local representative contacted
for instructions.
After the instrument has been removed from its packing, the packing should be examined to ensure that all
accessories and documentation have been removed. The packing should then be stored against future
transport requirements.

2 INSTALLATION
2.1 MECHANICAL INSTALLATION
2.1.1 Fixing details
Units are designed to operate at an operating temperature not exceeding 40°C (unless the modules are derated - see specification). Units must be installed in a fan-cooled cabinet (with fan failure detection or thermal
safety cutout). Condensation and conductive pollution should be excluded to IEC 60664-1 pollution degree
2. The cabinet must be closed and connected to the protective earth according to IEC 60634 or applicable
national standard.
Units must be mounted with the heat sink vertical with no obstructions above or below which impede the
airflow. Where more than one set of modules is enclosed in the same cabinet, they must be mounted such
that air from one unit is not drawn in by another mounted above it. An air gap of at least 5 cm should be
maintained between adjacent sets of modules.
The units are designed for fitting to the front face of a mounting panel using the fixings supplied. The
thyristor power modules are heavy, so a Health and Safety risk assessment should be carried out before
personnel attempt to lift the units. It should also be ensured, prior to fitting, that the mechanical strength of
the panel is sufficient for the mechanical load being applied. Table 2.1.1 gives the weights of the various
units.
GENERAL
Figure 2.1.1a, below, shows details of a generalised mechanical assembly for the top of the units. Assembly
details for the bottom brackets is similar, except that there is no safety earth fixing. The power module shown
is a 400 Amp unit for which the module is fixed to the support brackets using holes A and B. Lower current
power modules use only one screw (C) to secure the module to the support bracket.

2.2 ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION
2.2.1 Driver Module
SUPPLY VOLTAGE
The Line and neutral supply voltage connections are terminated using a 2-way connector (SK8), located on
the underside of the unit, as shown in figure 2.2.1a, below. It is recommended that a 3 Amp slow-blow fuse
be incorporated in order to protect the supply voltage wiring.
The Auxiliary (Fan) supply is Installation category II. U.L.: supply to Auxiliary (Fan) supply shall be provided
by isolated transformer secondary grounded protected by a Listed 20A branch circuit fuse.
FAN SUPPLIES
CAUTION
The Driver Module power supply is capable of working from any supply voltage between 85V ac
265V ac. The fans (if fitted) on the power modules are specified for use at 115V ac or 230V ac, as
defined at time of order. It must therefore be ensured that the fan voltage matches the supply
voltage, or the fan will either fail within a short period, or it will be ineffective at cooling.
The three way connector (SK9) provides supply voltage for cooling fans which are fitted to all power modules
except 50A and 100A modules. Suitable looms (harnesses) for the fans are supplied with the units. SK9 is
not used for 50/100A modules, because there are no cooling fans.

ENABLE INPUT
In order for the power module thyristors to operate, the Enable input to the driver module must be valid, In
the default configuration, this is achieved by shorting pins 8 and 10 of SK1 (Digital input 1 - figure 2.2.1b),
or by using a User Value block to apply a logic high to the enable input to the relevant firing block in iTools.
If required, DI1 can be reconfigured as a voltage input, and in this case it requires a high signal (figure 2.2.1c)
to be applied to SK1 pin8 with the relevant zero voltage connected to pin 10.

RELAY CONTACT DEFINITIONS
Figure 2.2.1d Relay connector location and pinout.
Under normal operating conditions, the watchdog relay is energised (that is the common and normally open
contacts are shorted). Should a system error (listed below) become active (or power to the Driver Module
fail), the relay is de-energised (common and normally closed contacts shorted).
1. Missing mains. One or more Power Module supply voltage lines is missing.
2. Thyristor short circuit*
3. Thyristor open circuit*
4. Fuse Blown. Thyristor-protection fuse ruptured in one or more Power Modules.
5. Unit over temperature
6. Network dips. A reduction in supply voltage exceeding a configurable value (VdipsThreshold), causes
firing to be inhibited until the supply voltage returns to a suitable value. VdipsThreshold represents a
percentage change in supply voltage between successive half cycles, and can be defined by the user
in the Network.Setup menu, as described in section 6.20.2.
7. Supply frequency fault. The supply frequency is checked every half cycle, and if the percentage change
between successive 1/2 cycles exceeds a threshold value (max. 5%), a Mains Frequency System Alarm
is generated. The threshold value (FreqDriftThold) is defined in the Network.Setup menu described in
section 6.20.2.
8. Power Module 24V Failure.
* Note: It is not possible to detect a thyristor short circuit when the unit is delivering 100% output
power. Similarly, it is not possible to detect thyristor open circuit when the unit is delivering 0%
output.
RELAY 1
This relay, supplied as standard, is located adjacent to the watchdog relay (figure 2.2.1d). The energisation/
de-energisation of the relay coil is under software control and is fully configurable by the user. The terms
Normally open (NO) and Normally closed (NC) refer to the relay in its de-energised state. Up to three further
relays are available if optional I/O Modules are fitted (see figure 2.2.1c).

Figure 2.2.1e Predictive Load Management wiring
Load Sharing
In a system with several heating zones, this allows a strategy to be implemented which distributes power over time
in such a way that the overall power consumption remains as steady as possible, thus reducing the peak power
demand of the system.
Load Shedding
In a system with several heating zones, this allows a strategy to be implemented which limits the available load
power at each heating zone and/or switches zones off according to a defined priority level, thus allowing the
maximum running power consumption to be controlled. The total running power is the maximum power supplied
to the loads, integrated over a 50 minute period.
See the Predictive Load Management option description (section 9), for more details.

RIBBON CABLE
The ribbon cable is daisy-chained from the Driver Module to the power modules.
Note: In order to maintain protection against damage due to electrostatic discharge, any ribbon
cable which is chafed, scratched or otherwise damaged must be replaced.
EXTERNAL CURRENT FEEDBACK
If the option is fitted, a two-pin connector on the underside of the unit allows the connection of an external
current transformer to measure the load current. The option also includes the Remote Voltage sensing input,
described below. Both connectors have polarising devices fitted (description below) to prevent
misconnection by the user.
The current transformer ratio must be such that its full scale output is 5 Amps. For example when measuring
up to 400 Amps, a 400:5 ratio transformer should be chosen.
CAUTION
External feedback connections must be correctly phased (figure 2.2.2b) or the unit might switch to
full conduction at start-up. See also Appendix B for more details about external feedback.

REMOTE VOLTAGE INPUT
WARNING
It must be ensured that the remote voltage sensing inputs (if fitted) are correctly fused. It is the
responsibility of the user to add branch-circuit protection. Such branch-circuit must comply with
applicable local regulations.
UL: The above mentioned branch-circuit protection is necessary for compliance with National
Electric Code (NEC) requirements.
If the option is fitted, the two end pins of a four-pin connector (figure 2.2.2a) are used for terminating remote
voltage sensing cable. It is recommended that each input be fitted with slow-blow fuse (figure 2.2.2b) of a
lower current rating than that of the sensing cable harness. If the option is fitted, the Current Transformer
input, described above, is also fitted.

Figure 2.2.2b Fusing for remote voltage sensing input and neutral reference inputs
NEUTRAL/PHASE REFERENCE INPUT
WARNING
For 4S, 6D and two-leg configurations the reference input described below is connected to neutral
or to a phase supply as appropriate see figure 2.2.2g for more details. For these configurations a
fuse must be fitted in the reference input circuit. It is the responsibility of the user to add branchcircuit protection. Such branch-circuit must comply with applicable local regulations. UL: The above
mentioned branch-circuit protection is necessary for compliance with National Electric Code (NEC)
requirements.
CAUTION
1. For ‘4S’ and single phase configurations, loss of the neutral supply causes the reference to be lost
as well. For ‘6D’ and ‘two-leg’ configurations, loss of the relevant phase supply also causes the
loss of the reference.
2. The reference connection must be made before power is applied, and not disconnected until
after power has been switched off.
In order to ensure correct firing for 4S, 6D and two-leg configurations, a connection to neutral or to the
relevant phase must be made using the relevant two-pin connector on the underside of the unit (figure
2.2.2a). (Both pins are connected together internally, so either may be used.) This supplies a reference for
voltage measurements within the unit. It is recommended that such inputs be fitted with a suitable slow-blow
fuse, as shown in figure 2.2.2b above and figure 2.2.2g, below). The reference inputs for other
configurations are not connected directly to the supply, and fusing is therefore not required.
The unit has been designed to detect the loss of any of the reference signals and to suspend firing should
any of them ‘fail’. Firing may not be correct during the detection period. As shown in the various figures, the
reference connection is taken ‘down-line’ of any isolating device, so that should this device (e.g. contactor)
‘trip out’, then the controller will be able to detect the loss of reference signal and shut down appropriately.

ACCESS TO LINE AND LOAD TERMINATIONS
WARNING
LETHAL VOLTAGES of up to 690 V ac appear at large areas of exposed metal when the doors to the
power modules are open. It must be ensured by the user that the units are isolated from all
hazardous voltages, and secured against accidental application of power, before the doors are
opened. It is recommended that voltage checks are carried out within the unit (if wired), or at the
supply and load cables before any work is started.
For 50A, 100A, 160A and 250A units, to remove the doors, insert a non-insulated screwdriver with a 5 mm
flat blade into the slot near the top of the door, and gently lever downwards to disengage the catch, and pull
the top of the door away from the unit. Once free, the door can be lifted off its pivots which are located at
the bottom of the case.
For the 400A unit, the door is released by undoing the two fasteners near the top of the door and then
pulling the top of the door away from the unit. Once free, the door can be lifted off its pivots which are
located at the bottom of the case.
The 500A/630Amp module door is similar to the 400Amp module, but once released, the bottom of the
door is pulled downwards to disengage it from its securing lugs, not lifted off, as described for the 400A
module.

The illustrations which make up figure 2.2.2g, below, show schematic and practical wiring arrangements for
a number of common three-phase configurations. Earthing and driver module wiring are omitted for the
sake of clarity. Fuses (where fitted) should have values compatible with the current carrying capacity of the
associated wiring. Appendix B contains a discussion of external feedback.
CAUTION
1. Neutral/phase reference connections (if applicable) must be located between any isolating
device and the relevant Power Module.
2. For single phase configurations, all Neutral reference connections must be individually fused.
Note: The figures below are intended only as theoretical examples. In order to comply with NEC
requirements, branch circuit protection must be incorporated by the user, upstream of the
equipment. Such protection is not shown in the figures below, for the sake of clarity. The installation,

4.2 SOME DEFINITIONS
4.2.1 Firing modes
LOGIC
Power switches on, two or three zero crossings of the supply voltage after the logic input switches on. Power
switches off wo or three zero crossings of current after the logic input switches off. For resistive loads, voltage
and current cross zero simultaneously. With inductive loads, a phase difference exists between the voltage
and current, meaning that they cross zero at different times. The size of the phase difference increases with
increasing inductance.
Power on-off delay = two or three mains
periods depending on where in the mains
cycle the logic output changes state.
Power applied
Logic output from controller
Figure 4.2.1a Logic firing mode
BURST FIXED FIRING
This means that there is a fixed ‘cycle time’ equal to an integer number of supply voltage cycles as set up in
the Modulator menu. Power is controlled by varying the ratio between the on period and the off period
within this cycle time (figure 4.2.1b).

4.2.1 FIRING MODES (Cont.)
BURST VARIABLE FIRING
Burst Firing Variable is the preferred mode for temperature control. Between 0 and 50% of setpoint, the on
time is the ‘Min on’ time set in the modulator menu and the off time is varied to achieve control. Between
50% and 100%, the off time is the value set for ‘Min on’ and power is controlled by varying the number of on
cycles.

PHASE ANGLE CONTROL
This mode of firing controls power by varying the amount of each cycle which is applied to the load, by
switching the controlling thyristor on part-way through the cycle. Figure 4.2.1d shows an example for 50%
power.

HALF CYCLE MODE
Burst mode firing with a single firing (or non-firing) cycle is known as ‘Single cycle’ mode. In order to reduce
power fluctuations during firing time, Intelligent half-cycle mode uses half cycles as firing/non-firing periods.
Positive and negative going cycles are evened out, to ensure that no dc component arises. The following
examples describe half-cycle mode for 50%, 33% and 66% duty cycles.

The firing and non-firing time corresponds to a single supply cycle (figure 4.2.1e).

4.2.1 FIRING MODES (Cont.)
33% DUTY CYCLE
For duty cycles less than 50%, the firing time is one half-cycle. For a 33% duty cycle, firing time is one half
cycle; the non-firing time is two half-cycles (figure 4.2.1f).

4.2.2 Feedback type
All feedback types (except ‘Open Loop’) are based on real-time measurement of electrical parameters that
are normalised to their equivalent Nominal values. Thus VRMS is normalised to Nominal Voltage; V2 is
normalised to the square of Nominal Voltage and ‘P’ is normalised to the product of Nominal Voltage and
Nominal Current.

Feedback is directly proportional to the square of the RMS voltage measured across
the load. For two- or three-phase systems, feedback is proportional to the average of
the squares of the individual phase-to-phase or phase-to-Neutral RMS voltage across
each load.
Feedback is directly proportional to the total true power delivered to the load network.
Feedback is directly proportional to the square of the RMS current through the load.
For two- or three-phase systems, feedback is proportional to the average of the
squares of the individual RMS load currents.
Feedback is directly proportional to the RMS voltage measured across the load or, for
multi-phase systems, to the average of the individual phase-to-phase or phase-toneutral RMS load voltages.
Feedback is directly proportional to the RMS current through the load or, for multiphase systems, to the average of the individual RMS load currents.
No measurement feedback. The thyristor firing angle in Phase angle mode, or the duty
cycle in burst-firing mode, are proportional to the setpoint.

EPOWER CONTROLLER USER GUIDE
4.2.3 Transfer Mode
The control system can use automatic transfer of certain feedback parameters. For example with loads with
very low cold resistance, I2 feedback should be used to limit inrush current, but once the load has started to
warm up, Power feedback should be used; the control program can be configured to change feedback
mode automatically.
The Transfer mode can be selected as I2 to P or Irms to P as appropriate to the type of load being controlled
None
I2
Irms
No feedback parameter transfer to the control program
Selects transfer mode: I2 to the selected Feedback Mode (above).
Selects transfer mode: IRMS to the selected Feedback Mode (above).
4.2.4 Limitation features
In order, for example, to prevent potentially damaging inrush currents, it is possible to set a value for power
or Current squared which is not to be exceeded. This limiting is implemented using phase angle reduction,
duty cycle reduction or ‘chop off’, depending on the type of control (e.g. phase angle, burst firing). For loads
exhibiting a low impedance at low temperatures but a higher impedance at working temperature, the
current drawn reduces as the load warms, and limiting gradually becomes unnecessary.
Section 6.7.3 describes the configuration parameters which allow the user to enter a Process Variable (PV)
and a setpoint (SP) for each phase, where the PV is the value to be limited (e.g. I2) and the SP is the value that
the PV must not exceed.
FIRING ANGLE LIMITING
For phase angle control, limiting is achieved by reducing the firing
angle on each half mains cycle such that the limit value of the
relevant parameter is not exceeded. As limiting is reduced so the
phase angle tends to its target value.
Limiting
(gradually reducing)
Target phase angle
DUTY CYCLE LIMITING
For Burst Firing only, limiting reduces the ‘On’ state of the burst firing driving the load. Load current, voltage
and active power are calculated over the period of each (Ton + Toff) period.
CAUTION
When applied to load current, duty cycle limiting does not limit the peak current value, and under
some circumstances this may allow an overheating hazard in the load and/or Power Module to
develop.
CHOP OFF
This is a limiting technique which detects an over-current alarm state and stops further thyristor firing for the
duration of that alarm state. All the relevant parameters are to be found in the Network Setup menu
(section 6.20.2).
There are two alarms which may trigger Chop Off, as follows:
1. The alarm is active when ChopOff1Threshold is exceeded for more than five seconds. This threshold
can be set to any value between 100% and 150% inclusive, of the unit’s nominal current (INominal).
2. The alarm is active if ChopOff2Threshold is exceeded more than a specified number of times (Number
Chop Off)) within a specified time period (Window Chop Off). ChopOff2Threshold is adjustable
between 100% and 350% inclusive, of Inominal; Number Chop Off can be selected to any value
between 1 and 16 inclusive; Window Chop Off can be set to any value between 1 and 65535 seconds
(approximately 18 hours 12 mins.).
Each time the threshold is exceeded, the unit stops firing, raises a chop off condition alarm, then after
100ms, restarts using an up-going safety ramp. The condition alarm is cleared if the unit successfully
restarts. If the alarm is raised more than the specified number of times within the specified window,
then the Chop Off alarm is set and the unit stops firing. Firing is not resumed until the operator
acknowledges the Chop Off alarm.

2. Event ID ‘Watchdog’ appears in association with Event Type ‘General error’ and indicates that the
microprocessor in the Driver Module has performed a watchdog reset.
3. Event ID ‘Watchdog fault’ appears with Event Type ‘Power Module ‘n’ Error’ and indicates that the
relevant Power Module PIC microprocessor has performed a watchdog reset.
5.2.3 Strategy Standby mode
For SCADA systems, in order to determine Standby mode, the user should use bit 8 of the Faultdet.StrategyStatus parameter, not the Instrument.Mode parameter.
This is because Instrument Mode reflects user selection, not error states such as Hardware Mismatch.

6 ENGINEER AND CONFIGURATION LEVEL MENUS
These two menu sets are mostly identical, displaying the unit’s parameters in a number of sub-menus. As the
Engineer level menu is accessible whilst the Driver Module is on-line to the power module(s), the majority of
the displayed items are Read Only (i.e. they can be viewed, but not edited), although some non-critical items
can be changed.
Full configuration may be carried out from the Configuration level menus, which (apart from the access
menu) contain the same parameters as the equivalent Engineering level menus. It is normally
recommended, however, that configuration be carried out from a pc running iTools configuration software.
In either case, the unit goes off-line as soon as Configuration mode is entered.
6.1 ACCESS TO THE ENGINEER AND CONFIGURATION MENUS
6.1.1 Engineer level menu
The Engineer level menu is entered as follows (figure 6.1.1):

then hold the Return key continuously operated until the ‘Access’
‘Goto’ display appears.
2. Use the up or down arrow key until ‘Engineer’ appears.
3. Either wait for a few seconds or operate the Enter key.
4. Use the up or down arrow key to change the code to the Engineer level code (factory default = 2, but

This menu allows:
1. The user to quit the Configuration level menu and ‘Goto’ a different access level. Operator and
Engineer level menus require no Pass code as they are considered to be at a lower security level than
Configuration. (Figure 6.3.2a shows the menu layout.)
2. The user to edit the current Pass codes for Engineer, Configuration and Quickstart menus (figure

None: No restriction. All parameters at the current access level may be viewed and
edited.
All:
All editing and navigation is prevented. All keys are locked so it is not
possible to ‘undo’ this action from the Operator interface. Once ‘All’ is
selected, the keyboard can be released only via iTools.
Edit:
Parameter editing is possible only in Configuration level; parameters are
Read Only in other levels. In the Operator or Engineer level menus, the ‘Back’
key is still active allowing access to the ‘Goto’ menu so that the access level
may be changed if the relevant Pass code is known.
Note: Keylock is available only from the user interface (i.e. it cannot be accessed from iTools or over

6.6 COMMS MENU (Cont.)
This menu allows the user to view, and in some cases, to edit communications parameters associated with
the communications option. The user may also view the Address and Baud Rate parameters associated with
the Remote Panel option.
6.6.1 Communications User menu parameters
The following parameter list includes all parameters which can appear. Only those parameters which are
relevant to the fitted communications option appear in the menu list.
ID
Protocol
Baud
Address
Occupied Stations
Displays the type of communications board fitted: RS-485 (EIA 485), Ethernet, or a
Network comms board such as Profibus or DeviceNet. (These options are fully
discussed in the Communications manual, HA179770.) ID is not user editable.
Read only. Displays the current transmission protocol: Modbus, Modbus TCP,
Network, Profibus, DeviceNet, CANopen, CC-Link, EtherNet/IP.
Allows the Baud rate setting for the unit to be set. Available values vary according to
the type of communications board fitted.
Allows the instrument address to be set up. Each instrument in a communications
link must have a unique address allocated to it. The available address ranges vary
according to link protocol.
Appearing for CC-Link protocol only, this read-only value shows the number of
addresses occupied by the unit, according to the number of input and output
definitions are set up (in iTools Fieldbus I/O Gateway) , and as shown in the table
below. For example, if the address of this unit is 4, and the number of occupied
stations is 3, then the next available address is 7.

Input definition:
2-byte word parameter to be read by the master.
Output definition:
2-byte word parameter to be written by master.
Parity
Allows the parity setting to be selected as None, odd or Even. None is often used
because there are other corruption detection methods (e.g. CRC) in use, and
selecting ‘Odd’ or ‘Even’ increases the number of bits transmitted, thus reducing
throughput.
Delay
Selects Transmission Delay ‘On’ or ‘Off’. ‘On’ inserts a guaranteed 10 millisecond
delay between reception and response. This is needed by some converter boxes in
order to switch driver direction.
Unit ident
Enables/disables the checking of the Modbus TCP Unit Identity field.
Strict: The Modbus TCP Unit Identity Field (UIF) does not have to match the
instrument address. The instrument responds only to Hex value FF in the UIF.
Loose The Modbus TCP Unit Identity Field (UIF) does not have to match the
:
instrument address. The instrument responds any value in the UIF.
Instr: The Modbus TCP Unit Identity Field (UIF) must match the instrument address
or no response will be made to messages.
A value of 0 in the UIF is treated as a ‘Broadcast Message’.
DHCP Enable
Allows the user to choose whether the IP address and subnet mask are fixed or to be
supplied by a DHCP Ethernet server.
IP1 Address
The first byte of the IP address. (If the IP address were to be 111.222.333.444, then
the first byte would be 111; the second byte 222, and so on).

Example:
If I2 threshold limiting is required, Isq is wired to PV1, and the required threshold value is entered at SP1. In

continues to fire in bursts, but these bursts are of phase angle in order to achieve the limit setpoint. The
modulation continues to attempt to reach the main setpoint.

Shows the instantaneous power input from the measuring source. Normally wired to
the Meas.P output of a Network block. Does not appear for the Global Energy
Counter (see ‘IsGlobal’, below).
1 = Energy counter output goes to zero and immediately starts accumulating.
0 = Energy counter not reset.
If the Global Energy counter is reset, it resets all other Energy counters (see
‘IsGlobal’, below).
1 = Hold output value. This freezes the output value for the block at the current value.
The input continues to be totalised, so when the Hold input returns to 0, the output
value is instantaneously updated to the new current value.
0 = output value is not held, and represents the current accumulated Energy value.
If the Global Energy counter is held, all other Energy counters are held as well (see
‘IsGlobal’, below).
Shows the current value for the selected Energy Counter block. If this is the global
counter, this value is the sum of the energy values of all those networks being
totalised.
Shows the total energy value for the relevant network. Not reset by ‘Reset’ above.
This enables a pulse output which causes a pulse to be generated at a specified
number of watt-hours (1, 10, 100kW-h or 1MW-h). The length of the pulse and a
scaling factor can be entered, as described below.
Allows a scaling units value to be entered for the energy display. Selectable as ‘1Wh’,
‘10Wh’, ‘100Wh’, ‘1kWh’, ‘10kWh’, ‘100kWh’, ‘1MWh’, ‘10MWh’, ‘100MWh’ or ‘1GWh’.
As ‘UsrUnit’, above, but for the total energy counter.
One pulse is generated every ‘n’ Watt-hours, where ‘n’ can be selected as 1, 10, 100,
1k, 10k, 100k, 1M Watt-hours. This value, and that of Pulse Len(gth) must be chosen
to suit the application, such that the next pulse is not requested before the previous
one is finished. (In such a case, the PulseScale factor is automatically increased.)
Select pulse length between 0 and 32000 ms. The actual pulse length is rounded to
the next longest multiple of 1/2 the supply frequency. Thus, for a 50Hz system
(multiple = 10ms) pulse length entries of 1 to 10 will result in a pulse length of 10ms.
For entries of 11 to 20 the pulse length will be 20ms, and so on. This value, and that
of Pulse Scale must be chosen to suit the application, such that the next pulse is not
requested before the previous one is finished. (In such a case, the PulseScale factor is
automatically increased.)
One (only) of the Energy blocks can be defined as being ‘Global’. This means that it
sums the values of all the other Energy counters. The block ‘input’ is disabled. The
‘IsGlobal’ parameter becomes non-editable (set to ‘No’) for all other Energy counter
blocks. If the Global energy Counter is held or reset, all other counters are held and
reset as well.
‘No’ = This counter is not the Global counter.
‘Global’ = this counter is the Global counter.
No = Use UsrUnit and TotUnit settings.
Yes = Autoscale power value display. Table 6.10.1 shows the breakpoints.
* Note: due to the computing time required, the pulse-length may vary according to circumstance.
For example, if a 20ms pulse is selected, the actual pulse length may be a mixture of 20ms and 30
ms pulses.

Displays the safety ramp duration, in supply voltage cycles (0 to 255), to be applied
at startup. The ramp is either a phase angle ramp from zero to the requested target
phase angle or, for Burst Firing, from 0 to 100%. See figure 6.13b. Safety Ramp is not
applicable to Half cycle Mode.
For Burst Firing only, this is the soft start duration, in supply voltage 1/2 cycles,
applying a phase angle ramp at the beginning of each on period. (Figure 6.13c).
In Burst Firing, the soft stop duration, in supply voltage 1/2 cycles, applying a phase
angle ramp at the end of each on period.
Appears only if Mode = Burst, Soft Start = Off, and Load Type = TxFormer. Delayed
Trigger specifies the triggering delay, in phase angle, when delivering power into a
transformer load. Used to ensure that the thyristor is fired when the current is zero.
Configurable between 0 and 90 degrees inclusive. See figure 6.13d.
Enables/disables firing. Must be wired to a non-zero value to enable firing (typically a
digital input).
Displays the input power demand value that the power module is to deliver.
Phase angle limit. This is a phase angle reduction factor used in Burst Firing. If lower
than 100% the power module will deliver a burst of phase angle firing. Used,

Operation
Defines the mathematical function to be applied to the inputs:
None
No operation.
Add
Adds input one to input two.
Sub
Subtracts input two from input one.
Mul
Multiplies inputs one and two together.
Div
Divides input one by input two.
AbsDif
The difference in value between inputs one and two, ignoring sign.
SelMax

HotSwp
Input one appears as the output for as long as input one is ‘good’. If input one
status is bad, input two appears as the output instead.
SmpHld
Sample and Hold. The output follows input one, for as long as input two is high
(sample). When input two goes low (hold), the output is held, at the value current
when the output went low, until input two goes high again. Input two is normally
a digital value (low = 0 or high =1); when it is an analogue value, then any
positive non-zero value is interpreted as a high.
Power
Output = Input one raised to the power of input two (In1In2). For example if input
one has the value 4.2, and the value of input two is 3, then output = 4.23 = 74.09.
Sqrt
The output is the square root of input one. Input two is not used.
Log
Output = Log10 (input one). (Log base 10). Input two is not used.
Ln
Output = Logn (input one). (Log base e). Input two is not used.
Exp
Output = e(input one). Input two is not used.
10 x

Fallback
The fallback strategy comes into play if the status of the input value is ‘Bad’, or if its value lies
outside the range (High limit- Low limit).
Fall Good: The output is set to the fallback value (below); output status is set to ‘Good’.
Fall Bad:
The output is set to the fallback value (below); output status is set to ‘Bad’.
Clip Good: The output is set to the high or low limit as appropriate; output status is set to
‘Good’.
Clip bad:
The output is set to the high or low limit as appropriate; output status is set to
‘Bad’.
DownScale: The output is set to the low limit and Status is set to ‘Bad’.
Upscale:
The output is set to the high limit and Status is set to ‘Bad’.
Fallback

value
Bad.
Select
Appears only if Operation = Select. Allows input one or input two to be selected for output.
In1
Input one value (normally wired to an input source).
In2
Input two value (normally wired to an input source).
Out
The output value resulting from the configured mathematical operation. If either input is ‘Bad’,
or if the result is out of range, the fallback strategy is adopted.

primary voltage of the external transformer. If an external transformer is not fitted,
VextScale should be set to Vnominal.
Displays the maximum permissible temperature of the heat sink. This forms an alarm
threshold for the ‘Heat sink Overtemperature’ alarm.
Voltage dips threshold. This is a percentage difference (relative to Vline Nominal)
between 2 consecutive half cycles. Each half cycle voltage measurement is
integrated and at the end of each half cycle the last 2 voltage integrals are
compared.
The supply frequency is checked every half cycle, and if the percentage change
between 1/2 cycles exceeds this threshold value, a Mains Frequency System Alarm is
generated. The threshold may be set to a maximum of 5% to cater for the effects of
heavily inductive networks.
The ‘Chop-off’ alarm becomes active if load current exceeds this threshold for more
than five seconds. Threshold values lie between 100% and 150% of INominal.
The Chop-off’ alarm also becomes active if this second current threshold is exceeded
more than a predefined number of times (NumberChopOff ) within a predefined
time period (WindowChopOff). Current threshold values lie between 100% to 350%
of INominal.
NumberChopOff can be set to between one and 16 (inclusive) and any value
between 1 and 65535 seconds may be configured for WindowChopOff.
Each time an over-current is detected, the unit stops firing, raises a ‘Chop-off’
condition alarm, waits for about 100ms and then restarts firing using an up-going
safety ramp. The ‘Chop-off’ condition alarm is cleared if the unit restarts successfully
after an over-current event.
If NumberChopOff is reached within the WindowChopOff period, the unit stops
firing and remains stopped. A chop-off state alarm is triggered, making it necessary
for the user to acknowledge the chop-off state alarm before restarting firing.
Displays the number of ‘Chop Off’ events that can occur within the WindowChopOff
period before a ‘Chop Off’ alarm is enabled. Used only with ChopOff2Threshold.
Displays the ‘Chop Off’ window in seconds. Used only with ChopOff2Threshold.
The threshold for detecting an over voltage condition as a percentage of
VLineNominal. If Vline rises above the threshold a Mains Voltage Alarm is set
(DetMainsVoltFault).
This is the threshold for detecting an under voltage condition as a percentage of
VLineNominal. If Vline falls below the threshold a Mains Voltage Alarm occurs
(DetMainsVoltFault).
The threshold for the heat sink temperature pre-alarm in degrees C, which, if
exceeded, causes a pre-temperature (DetPreTemp) alarm to occur.
Partial load failure adjustment request. To make the Partial Load Failure (PLF) alarm
operate correctly, the normal steady-state condition must be known to the
instrument. This is done by activating the PLF Adjust Req, for each Network, once the
controlled process has achieved a steady state condition. This causes a load
impedance measurement to be made which is used as a reference for detecting a
partial load failure. If the load impedance measurement is successful PLFAdjusted
(below) is set. The measurement fails if the load voltage (V) is below 30% of
(VNominal) or the current (I) is below 30% of (INominal). The PLF alarm becomes
active as setup in ‘PLF Sensitivity’, below.
Partial load failure adjusted acknowledge. Indicates that the user requested a PLF
adjustment and that the adjustment was successful.
Partial load failure sensitivity. This defines how sensitive the partial load failure
detection is to be as the ratio between the load impedance for a PLFadjusted load
and the current impedance measurement. For example for a load of N parallel,
identical elements, if the PLF Sensitivity (s) is set to 2, then a PLF alarm will occur if N/
2, or more elements are broken (i.e. open circuit). If PLF Sensitivity is set to 3, then a
PLF alarm occurs if N/3 or more elements are broken. If (N/s) is non-integer, then the
sensitivity is rounded up.
E.G. if the N = 6 and s= 4, then the alarm is triggered if 2 or more elements are

Partial load unbalance threshold. Defines the threshold for detecting a partial load
unbalance condition. This is only applicable to a three phase system. This occurs
when the difference between the maximum and minimum current of the three phase
system exceeds the threshold as a percentage of Inominal. The alarm can be
detected between 5 and 50%.
The threshold for detecting an over current condition as a percentage of INominal. If
I is above the threshold a Mains Current Alarm occurs (DetoverCurrent).
Shows the type of heater used in the load as: ‘Resistive’, ‘SWIR’ (Short wave infra-red),
‘CSi’ (Silicon Carbide), ‘MoSi2’ (Molybdenum Disilicide).
Fix limit to I Nominal
PARTIAL LOAD FAILURE CALCULATIONS
The PLF alarm detects a static increase in load impedance (low temperature coefficient loads and Short wave
Infra Red heaters can be controlled by this feature).
The alarm works by comparing the reference load impedance with the actual measured load impedance.
The user must set the reference impedance (by requesting PLFAdjust) and the partial load failure sensitivity.
Notes:
1. All elements are assumed to be identical and connected in parallel
2. For three phase loads, the impedance reference can be set only if the load is balanced.
The impedance comparison takes place over a mains cycle (in phase angle firing) or over the burst period
(for burst and logic firing). For star with neutral (4S) or open delta (6D) networks, the measured load voltage
and current correspond directly to the load parameters. In these configurations the partial load failure
sensitivity is limited only by measurement accuracy and element impedance inaccuracies. For star without
neutral (3S) and closed delta (3D) configurations, equivalent impedances are calculated using line-to-line
voltages and line currents, this resulting in minor inaccuracies.
Special care must be taken for short burst firing modes (e.g. IHC or single cycle firing) if no phase rotation is
applied for Burst start (suppression of DC component in current transformers) and for logic firing without DC
component suppression feature, for the same reason.
A minimum voltage of 30% of nominal adjusted value (Vload nominal) and a minimum of 30% of INominal
must be applied to the load, as below these thresholds, no partial load failure detection or impedance
reference setting takes place.

Configures the type of Predictive Load Management as follows:
No:
No Load Management. Load Management is disabled.
Sharing:
Load Sharing. Used to control the total power demand over time by
distributing the conduction periods of the various units.
IncrT1:
Incremental Type 1. Several loads receive a common setpoint. Only one
channel is modulated by the duty cycle, the others being at 0% or 100%
demand. Total power distributed = setpoint value.
IncrT2:
Incremental Type 2. A number of loads receive a common setpoint. Only
the first channel is modulated, by the duty cycle, the others being at 0% or
100% demand. Total power distributed = setpoint value.
RotIncr:
Rotating Incremental. Provides incremental control of between two and 64
channels, operating from a single input. Each channel modulates with an
identical mark-space ratio determined by the power demand signal, but
each channel is separated from adjacent outputs by the selected time
base.
Distrib:
Distributed Control. This mode provides control of between two and 64
channels from an equal number of independent inputs. Each channel
modulates with a mark-space ratio proportional to its input signal, but with
the switching of adjacent inputs distributed over the selected time cycle.
DistIncr:
Distributed and Incremental control. This provides control of between two
and eight groups of loads. A total of 64 channels is available, and these
may be freely distributed among the groups, as long as each group has at
least one channel. Each group has a single power demand input and
operates as in Incremental Type 2 mode, with the first channel modulating
to maintain the selected power level. Switching time within groups is
distributed over the selected time cycle.
RotDisInc: Rotating Distributed and Incremental control. This provides control of
between two and eight groups of loads. A total of 64 channels is available,
and these may be freely distributed among the groups, as long as each
group has at least one channel. Each group has a single power demand
input and operates in Rotating Incremental mode with all channels
modulating at an identical rate. The distributed nature of this mode
ensures that the instant of switch on in each group is distributed over the
cycle time.
This configures the modulation period for the station, in mains periods between 50 and
1000. The accuracy of control is related to the modulation period - to increase accuracy
the period must be increased.
The master unit imposes its modulation period on all slaves. It is recommended that all
slave units are configured to use the same period as the master, so that should the
master lose control, then the slave that replaces it as master will use the same value and
thus achieve the same accuracy of control. (The new master imposes its own value at the
next power cycle.)

The sum of the power demanded by all channels taking part in the Load

Configured by the user to restrict the power demanded from the network, according
to the Load Shedding strategy (setting Ps> Pmax disables Load Shedding).
Example: If the total installed power is 2.5MW but the user wishes to restrict the
delivered power to be within a tariff band of 2MW, then Ps should be set to 2MW.
Load shedding will shed power across the network to keep the total demand to less
than 2MW.
This shows the total amount of power that has been delivered through the network.
The value can be greater than Ps depending on the shedability factors of all
channels.
Shows, in percent, how efficient the load management strategy is.
Calculated from: Efficiency % = {Pmax - (Ptmax - Ptmin)}/Pmax, where Ptmax and
Ptmin are the peak maximum and minimum values for total power during the

7 USING ITOOLS
iTools software running on a pc allows quick and easy access to the configuration of the unit. The parameters
used are the same as those described in section 6 above, with the addition of various diagnostic parameters.
iTools also gives the user the ability to create software wiring between function blocks, something that is not
possible from the operator interface. Such wiring is carried out using the Graphical wiring Editor feature.
In addition to the guidance given here, there are two on-line Help systems available within iTools: Parameter
help and iTools help. Parameter help is accessed by clicking on ‘Help’ in the toolbar (opens the complete
parameter help system), by right-clicking on a parameter and selecting ‘Parameter Help’ from the resulting
context menu, or by clicking on the Help menu and selecting ‘Device Help’. iTools help is accessed by
clicking on the Help menu, and selecting ‘Contents’. iTools help is also available in manual format under part
number HA028838, either as a physical manual or as a pdf file.

7.1.2 Ethernet (Modbus TCP) communications
Note: the following description is based on windows XP. Windows ‘Vista’ is similar.
It is first necessary to determine the IP address of the unit, as described under ‘Comms menu’ in section 6.6.
This can be done from either the Engineer menu or the Config menu.
Once the Ethernet link has been correctly installed, carry out the following actions at the pc:
1. Click on ‘Start’
2. Click on ‘Control Panel’. (If Control Panel opens in ‘Category View’ select ‘Classic View’ instead.)
3. Double-click on ‘iTools’.
4. Click on the TCP/IP tab in the Registry settings configuration.
5. Click on Add... The ‘New TCP/IP Port’ dialogue box opens.
6. Type-in a name for the port, then click Add...
7. Type the IP address of the unit in the ‘Edit Host’ box which appears. Click OK.
8. Check the details in the ‘New TCP/IP Port’ box, then click on ‘OK’.
9. Click on ‘OK’ in the ‘Registry settings’ box to confirm the new port.

when the Command Prompt box appears, type in : Ping<Space>IP1.IP2.IP3.IP4<Enter> (where IP1 to IP4 are
the IP address of the instrument).
If the Ethernet link to the instrument is operating correctly, the ‘successful’ reply arrives. Otherwise, the
‘failed’ reply arrives, in which case, the Ethernet link, IP address, and pc port details should be verified.
Figure 7.1.2a Command prompt ‘Ping’ screens (typical)
Once the Ethernet link to the instrument has been verified, iTools can be started (or shut down and
restarted), and the Scan toolbar icon used, to ‘find’ the instrument. The scan can be stopped at any
time by clicking on the Scan icon a second time.
See section 7.2 for more details of the scan procedure.

7.1.3 Direct Connection
This section describes how to connect a pc directly to a Driver Module which, for this purpose, must be fitted
with the Ethernet communications option.
WIRING
Connection is made from the Ethernet connector on the front of the Driver Module to an Ethernet
RJ45 connector, usually located at the rear of the pc. The cable should be a ‘cross-over’ cable
type.
PC Ethernet
connector.
Once wired correctly, and powered up, it is necessary to enter a suitable IP address and subnet mask into
the Comms configuration of the Driver Module. This information can be found as follows:
1. At the pc, click ‘Start’. ‘All Programs’, ‘Accessories’, ‘Command Prompt’
2. When the Command Prompt box appears, type in :IPConfig<Enter>
The response is a display, such as that shown below, giving the IP address and Subnet mask of the pc.
Choose an address in the range covered by these two values.
A subnet mask element of 255 means that the equivalent element of the IP address must be used
unchanged. A subnet mask element of 0 means that the equivalent element of the IP address may take
any value between 1 and 255 (0 is not allowed). In the example below, the range of IP addresses which
may be chosen for the Driver Module is 123.456.789.2 to 123.456.789.255. (123.456.789.0 is not
allowed and 123.456.789.1 is the same as the pc’s address, and may therefore not be used.)
Figure 7.1.3a IP Config command
3.
In Comms configuration (section 6.6) enter the selected IP address and the subnet mask (as it appears
in the command prompt window) in the relevant parts of the configuration menu.
4. Check communications by ‘pinging’ as described in section 7.1.2 above.
Once the link to the instrument has been verified, iTools can be started (or shut down and re-started), and
the Scan toolbar icon used, to ‘find’ the instrument. The scan can be stopped at any time by clicking on the
Scan icon a second time.
See section 7.2 for more details of the scan procedure.
Subnet Masks and IP addresses.
Subnet Masks are most readily understood when looked at in binary format.
For example, a mask of 255.255.240.10 can be re-written as:
11111111.11111111.11110000.00001010. In such a case, IP addresses
11111111.11111111.1111xxxx.xxxx1x1x would be recognised (where x can be either a 0 or a 1).

7.2 SCANNING FOR INSTRUMENTS
Clicking on the ‘Scan’ toolbar icon causes a dialogue box (shown below) to appear. This allows the user to
define a search range of addresses.
Notes:
1. The relevant instrument address is that entered in the Comms User menu ‘Address’ item, and it
can take any value between 1 and 254 inclusive, as long as it is unique to the comms link.
2. The default selection (Scan all device addresses...) will detect any instrument on the serial link,
which has a valid address.
As the search progresses, any instruments detected by the scan appear as thumbnails (faceplates) in the
‘Panel Views’ area, normally located at the bottom of the iTools screen. (options/Panel Views position allows
this area to be moved to the top of the window, or the Close icon
can be used to close it. Once closed it
can be re-opened by clicking on ‘Panel Views’ in the ‘View’ menu.)

BLOCK EXECUTION ORDER
The order in which the blocks are executed by the instrument depends on the way in which they are wired.
The order is automatically worked out, for each ‘Task’ (or network block) so that the blocks use the most
recent data. Each block displays its place in its sequence in a coloured block in the bottom left-hand corner
(figure 7.3.2a). The colour of the block represents the Task within which the block is running: red = task one,
green = task two, black = task 3 and blue = task 4.

FUNCTION BLOCKS
A Function Block is an algorithm which may be wired to and from other function blocks to make a control
strategy. Each function block has inputs and outputs. Any parameter may be wired from, but only
parameters that are alterable in Operator Mode may we wired to. A function block includes any parameters
that are needed to configure or operate the algorithm. The inputs and outputs which are considered to be
of most use are always shown. In most cases all of these need to be wired before the block can perform a
useful task.
If a function block is not faded in the tree (left hand pane) it can be dragged onto the diagram. The block
can be dragged around the diagram using the mouse.
A Maths block is shown below as an example. When block type information is alterable (as in this case) click
on the box with the down arrow in it to display a dialogue box allowing the value to be edited.

WIRES
To make a wire
1. Drag two (or more) blocks onto the diagram from the
function block tree.
2. Start a wire by either clicking on a recommended output
or clicking on the ‘Click to Select output’ icon at the
bottom right corner of the block to bring up the
connection dialogue, and clicking on the required
parameter. Recommended connections are shown with a
green plug symbol; other parameters which are available
being shown in yellow. Clicking on the red button causes
all parameters to be shown. To dismiss the connection
dialogue either press the escape key on the keyboard, or
click the cross at the bottom left of the dialogue box.
3. Once the wire has started a dashed wire is drawn from the
output to the current mouse position. To complete the
wire click on the required destination parameter.
4. Wires remain dashed until they are downloaded
Figure 7.3.2c Output selection dialogue box
Routing wires
When a wire is placed it is auto-routed. The auto routing algorithm searches for a clear path between the
two blocks. A wire can be auto-routed again using the context menus or by double clicking the wire. A wire
segment can be edited manually by click-dragging. If the block to which it is connected is moved, the end
of the wire moves with it, retaining as much of the path as possible.
If a wire is selected by clicking on it, it is drawn with small boxes on its corners.

When wires form a loop, a break point must be introduced,
where the value written to the block comes from a source
which was last executed during the previous cycle. A break is
automatically placed by iTools, and appears in red.
Force
Exec Break allows the user to define where a break must be
placed. Surplus breaks appear in black.
Each Network block, and associated I/O blocks, wiring etc.
represents a ‘task’, which is normally associated with a
particular power phase (Network Block one is associated with
phase one, Network Block two with phase two and so on).
Different tasks are thus often synchronised with different
phases. A task break ensures that for any wiring between
tasks, the timing is delayed as necessary to avoid phasing
problems. Task breaks appear in blue.

COMMENTS
Comments are added to a wiring diagram by click-dragging them from the Function Block tree onto the
diagram. As soon as the mouse is released, a dialogue box opens to allow the comment text to be entered.
Carriage returns are used to control the width of the comment. Once text entry is complete, ‘OK’ causes the
comment to appear on the diagram. There are no restrictions on the size of a comment. Comments are
saved to the instrument along with the diagram layout information.
Comments can be linked to function blocks and wires by clicking on the chain icon at the bottom right-hand
corner of the comment box and then clicking again on the required block or wire. A dashed line is drawn to
the top of the block or to the selected wire segment (figure 7.3.2f).
Note: once the comment has been linked, the Chain icon disappears. It re-appears when the mouse

DOWNLOADING
When the wiring editor is opened the current wiring and diagram layout is read from the instrument. No
changes are made to the instrument function block execution or wiring until the download button is pressed.
Any changes made using the operator interface after the editor is opened are lost on download.
When a block is dropped onto the diagram, instrument parameters are changed to make the parameters for
that block available. If changes are made and the editor is closed without saving them there is a delay while
the editor clears these parameters.
During download, the wiring is written to the instrument which then calculates the block execution order and
starts executing the blocks. The diagram layout including comments and monitors is then written into
instrument flash memory along with the current editor settings. When the editor is reopened, the diagram
is shown positioned as it was when it was last downloaded.

COMPOUNDS
Compounds are used to simplify the top level wiring diagram, by allowing the placing of any number of
function blocks within one ‘box’, the inputs and outputs of which operate in the same way as those of a
normal function block.
Each time a compound is created, a new tab appears at the top of the wiring diagram. Initially compounds
and their tabs are named ‘Compound 1’, ‘Compound 2’, etc. but they can be renamed by right clicking either
on the compound in the top level diagram, or anywhere within an open Compound, selecting ‘Rename’ and
typing in the required text string (16 characters max.).
Compounds cannot contain other compounds (i.e. they can be created only in the top level diagram).
Compound creation
1. Empty compounds are created within the top level diagram by clicking on the ‘Create Compound’
toolbar icon.
2. Compounds can also be created by highlighting one or more function blocks
in the top level diagram and then clicking on the ‘Create Compound’ toolbar
Create
Flatten
icon. The highlighted items are moved from the top level diagram into a new compound compound
compound.
3. Compounds are ‘uncreated’ (flattened), by highlighting the relevant item in the top level menu and
then clicking on the ‘Flatten Compound’ toolbar icon. All the items previously contained within the
compound appear on the top level diagram.
4. Wiring between top level and compound parameters is carried out by clicking on the source
parameter, then clicking on the compound (or the compound tab) and then clicking on the destination
parameter. Wiring from a compound parameter to a top level parameter or from compound to
compound is carried out in similar manner.
5. Unused function blocks can be moved into compounds by dragging from the tree view. Existing blocks
can be dragged from the top level diagram, or from another compound, onto the tab associated with
the destination compound. Blocks are moved out of compounds to the top level diagram or to another
compound in a similar way. Function blocks can also be ‘cut and pasted’.
6. Default compound names (e.g. ‘Compound 2’) are used only once, so that if, for example, Compounds
1 and 2 have been created, and Compound 2 is subsequently deleted, then the next compound to be
created will be named ‘Compound 3’.
7. Top level elements can be click-dragged into compounds.

TOOL TIPS
Hovering the cursor over the block displays ‘tooltips’ describing that part of the block beneath the cursor.
For function block parameters the tooltip shows the parameter description, its OPC name, and, if
downloaded, its value. Similar tooltips are shown when hovering over inputs, outputs and over many other
items on the iTools screen.
A Function Block is enabled by dragging the block onto the diagram, wiring it, and finally downloading it to
the instrument. Initially blocks and associated wires are drawn with dashed lines, and when in this state the
parameter list for the block is enabled but the block is not executed by the instrument.
The block is added to the instrument function block execution list when the ‘Download’ icon is operated and
the items are redrawn using solid lines.
If a block which has been downloaded is deleted, it is shown on the diagram in a ghosted form until the
download button is pressed. (This is because it and any wires to/from it are still being executed in the
instrument. On download it will be removed from the instrument execution list and the diagram.) A ghosted
block can be ‘undeleted’ as described in ‘Context menu’, above.
When a dashed block is deleted it is removed immediately.

7.5 FIELDBUS GATEWAY
Figure 7.5a Typical Fieldbus Gateway Parameter list
A Profibus master may be required to work with slaves from different manufacturers and with different
functions. Also, there are many parameters which are not required by the network master. Fieldbus Gateway
allows the user to define which Input and output parameters are to be available over the Profibus link. The
master may then map the selected device parameters into, for example, PLC input/output registers, or, in
the case of a supervisory (SCADA) package, to a personal computer.
Values from each slave, (the ‘Input Data’), are read by the master, which then runs a control program such as
a ladder logic program. The program generates a set of values, (the ‘Output Data’) and loads them into a
pre-defined set of registers for transmission to the slaves. This process is called an ‘I/O data exchange’ and
is repeated continuously, to give a cyclical I/O data exchange.
As shown in figure 7.5a, above, there are two tabs within the editor, called ‘Input definition’ and ‘Output
definition’. ‘Inputs’ are values sent from the controller to the Profibus master. ‘Outputs’ are values received
from the master and used by the controller, (e.g. set points written from the master).
Note: Values from Profibus over write changes made at the operator interface.
The procedure for selecting variables is the same for both input and
output definition tabs:
1. Double click the next available position in the input or output
data table and select the variable to assign to it. A pop-up (figure
7.5b) provides a browser from which a list of parameters can be
opened.
2. Double click the parameter to assign it to the input definition.

7.5 FIELDBUS GATEWAY(Cont.)
When all the required parameters have been added to the lists, notes of how many ‘wired’ entries are
included in the input and output areas should be made as this information is needed when setting up the
Profibus Master.
Notes:
1. A maximum of 32 input and 16 output parameters may be set using the Gateway Editor.
2. No checks are made that output variables are writeable, and if a read only variable is included in
the output list any values sent to it will be ignored with no error indication.
3. For Modbus only:
As shown in figure 7.5b, ‘Block Read’ and ‘Block Write’ requests both access the same memory
location (0C06), which ‘points’ to the relevant input definition table or output definition table
according to whether the instruction is a read or a write. If a value is written to a parameter at a
particular location in the output definition table, and the value of the parameter in the same
location in the input definition table is then read, the read value is normally different from the
write value because the parameter at a location in the input table is not usually the same as the
parameter at that location in the output table (unless the same parameter is placed at the same
location in both tables).
Once the changes have been made to the Input and Output definition lists, they must be downloaded
to the controller unit. This is done (for both tables simultaneously) by clicking on the ‘Update device
Flash Memory’ button on the top left of the Fieldbus Gateway Editor window. The controller performs
a restart after this operation.

EE CHECKSUM FAIL ERROR
CAUTION
For software versions prior to version 3 only.
The EEPROM, used to retain configuration parameters whilst power is off, has a lifetime of at least
100,000 writes. If the Fieldbus Gateway is configured to include such configuration parameters (see
list below), then the lifetime of the EEPROM may be reduced. In this case an ‘EE Checksum Fail Error’
message appears at power up, and the Driver Module will fail to start, and will have to be replaced.
It is therefore recommended that an alternative method is used when communicating with these
parameters. For example, rather than writing directly to the parameter Control.MainSP (saved in EEPROM)
it is possible to use a SetProv block and write into SetProv.Remote 1 (not saved in EEPROM) instead.
For software version 3.0 onwards, no parameters modified via the I/O Gateway will be saved in EEPROM.
Saving to EEPROM will be achieved by other wiring methods.

7.6 DEVICE PANEL
When this toolbar icon is clicked on, a representation of the connected instrument (either on-line, or a clone)
appears in the iTools window. The operator interface acts as in the real instrument (note 1), but instead of
operating the push-buttons by hand, the relevant items are clicked on, using the mouse. Changes made at
the operator interface are reflected at the iTools screen and vice-versa.
The display can be scaled as required by click/dragging on the sides/bottom or corners.
Notes:
1. An up/down arrow key appears above the display for operations (e.g. acknowledging
system alarms) which require simultaneous operation of the up and down arrow keys.
2. Real instruments can be recognised by the fact that the representation of the display is in green,
whereas for cloned instruments, the display is shown in white (see figure 7.6 below).

7.7 WATCH/RECIPE EDITOR
The watch/recipe editor is opened by clicking on the Watch/Recipe tool icon, by selecting ‘Watch/Recipe’
in the ‘Views’ menu or by using the short cut <ctrl>+<A>. The window is in two parts: the left part containing
the watch list; the right-hand part containing one or more data sets, initially empty and unnamed.
The Watch/Recipe window is used:
1. To monitor a list of parameters. This list can contain parameters from many different, and otherwise
unrelated parameter lists within the same device. It cannot contain parameters from different devices.
2. To create ‘data sets’ of parameter values which can be selected and downloaded to the device in the
sequence defined in the recipe. The same parameter may be used more than once in a recipe.
Figure 7.7 Watch/Recipe Editor window (with context menu)
7.7.1 Creating a Watch List
After opening the window, parameters can be added to it as described below. The values of the parameters
update in real-time, allowing the user to monitor a number of values simultaneously.
ADDING PARAMETERS TO THE WATCH LIST
1. Parameters can be click-dragged into the watch list from another area of the iTools window (for
example, the parameter explorer window, the graphical wiring editor, the browse tree). The parameter
is placed either in an empty row at the bottom of the list, or if it is dragged on top of an already existing
parameter, it is inserted above this parameter, with the remaining parameters being moved down one
place.
2. Parameters can be dragged from one position in the list to another. In such a case, a copy of the
parameter is produced, the source parameter remaining in its original position.
3. Parameters can be copied <ctrl>+<C> and pasted <ctrl>+<V> either within the list, or from a source
external to it, for example the parameter browse window or the graphical wiring editor.
4.
The ‘Insert item...’ tool button
the ‘Insert Parameter’ item in the Recipe or context menu or the short
cut <Insert> can be used to open a browse window from which a parameter is selected for insertion
above the currently selected parameter.
DATA SET CREATION
Once all the required parameters have been added to the list, select the empty data set by clicking on the
column header. Fill the data set with current values using one of the following methods:
1.

DATA SET CREATION (Cont.)
Individual data values can now be edited by typing directly into the grid cells. Data values can be left blank
or cleared, in which case, no values will be written for those parameters at download. Data values are cleared
by deleting all the characters in the cell then either moving to a different cell or typing <Enter>.
The set is called ‘Set 1’ by default, but it can be renamed by either by using the ‘Rename data set...’ item in
the Recipe or context menus, or by using the short cut <ctrl>+<R>.
New, empty data sets can be added using one of the following:
1. Clicking on the ‘Create a new empty data set’ toolbar icon.
2. Selecting ‘New Data Set’ in the Recipe or context menus
3. Using the short cut <ctrl>+<W>
Once created, the data sets are edited as described above.
Finally, once all the required data sets have been created, edited and saved, they can be downloaded
the instrument, one at a time, using the Download tool, the ‘Download Values’ item in the Recipe or
context menus, or the short cut <ctrl>+<D>.
7.7.2 Watch Recipe toolbar icons
Create a new watch/recipe list. Creates a new list by clearing out all parameters and data sets from an open
window. If the current list has not been saved, confirmation is requested. Short cut <ctrl>+<N>
Open an existing watch/recipe file. If the current list or data set has not been saved, confirmation is
requested. A file dialogue box then opens allowing the user to select a file to be opened. Short cut
<ctrl>+<O>
Save the current watch/recipe list. Allows the current set to be saved to a user specified location. Short cut
<ctrl>+<S>.
Download the selected data set to the device. Short cut <ctrl>+<D>
Insert item ahead of selected item. Short cut <Insert>.
Remove recipe parameter. Short cut <ctrl>+<Delete>.
Move selected item. Up arrow moves selected parameter up the list; down arrow move the selected
parameter down the list.
Create a new empty data set. Short cut <ctrl>+<w>.
Delete an empty data set. Short cut <ctrl>+<Delete>
Capture current values into a data set. Fills the selected data set with values. Short cut <ctrl>+<A>.
Clear the selected data set. Removes values from the selected data set. Short cut <Shift>+<Delete>.
Open OPC Scope. Opens a separate utility that allows trending, data logging and Dynamic Data Exchange
(DDE). OPC Scope is an OPC explorer program that can connect to any OPC server that is in the windows
registry.
(OPC is an acronym for ‘OLE for Process Control, where OLE stands for ‘Object Linking and Embedding’.)

entered for this style. This style is shown as line two in figure 7.8.2a.
Displays the parameter mnemonic (left justified) and the parameter value (right
justified). User text may be entered, but this will over-write the parameter mnemonic.
This style is shown as line three in figure 7.8.2a.
Displays the parameter value as a left-hand zero bargraph. This style is shown as line
four in figure 7.8.2a, and line two in figure 7.8.2b.
Supplies low limit (left justified), parameter mnemonic (centred) and high limit (right
justified) displays, normally associated with a Left origin Bar on the line below or
above. User text may be entered. As the number of entered characters increases, this
overwrites firstly the mnemonic, then the range values. This style is shown as line one
in figure 7.8.2b.
Similar to Bar Graph Title 1, but includes a numeric value for the parameter as well as
its mnemonic. User text may be entered. As the number of entered characters
increases, this over-writes firstly the mnemonic, then the range values. If the number of
entered characters plus the number of value characters exceeds 10, then the user text
is hidden, leaving just the parameter value. This style is shown as line three in figure
7.8.2b.

8 PARAMETER ADDRESSES (MODBUS)
8.1 INTRODUCTION
The iTools address fields display each parameter’s Modbus address to be used when addressing integer
values over the serial communications link. In order to access these values as IEEE floating point values, the
calculation: IEEE address = {(Modbus address x 2) + hex 8000} should be used. The Communications
manual HA179770 gives details of how to establish a suitable communications link.
Notes:
1. Certain parameters may have values which exceed the maximum value that can be read from or
written to using a 16-bit integer communications. Such parameters have a scaling factor applied
to them as described in section 8.3.
2. When using 16-bit scaled integer modbus addressing, time parameters can be read from or
written to in 10ths of minutes, or in 10ths of seconds as defined in the parameter
Instrument.config. TimerRes.
8.2 PARAMETER TYPES
The following parameter types are used:
bool
uint8
int16
uint16
int32

9 PREDICTIVE LOAD MANAGEMENT OPTION
9.1 GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The Predictive Load Management (PLM) system is an assembly of a number of units (‘stations’) working
together in order to minimize transient power demands which could appear on the mains if all the units were
independent. The Predictive Load Management system is described in three sections, viz: Load sequencing
(section 9.2), Load sharing (section 9.3) and Load shedding (section 9.4)
9.1.1 Load Management layout
A Predictive Load Management system can consist of up to 63 Stations, running a maximum of 64 channels,
distributed around the shop floor (maximum cumulative cable length = 100 metres). Each Station manages
either up to four single channels, two, 2-leg channels, or one 3-phase channel. One or more of these
channels can participate in Load Management whilst other channels run independently. Where more than
64 channels are required, two or more independent networks (each with its own master) must be created.
The PLM connector is located behind the driver module door, and Stations are linked together as shown in
figures 2.2.1c and 2.2.1f (location and pinout details respectively).

9.1.2 Power modulation and accuracy
Fixed modulation is automatically selected for all channels participating to the Load Management. The
Modulation period T is constant and is selected (between 50 and 1000 mains periods) during configuration.

Ton and Toff are related to the Modulation Period (T) and each corresponds to an integer number of mains
periods. The duty cycle ( = Ton/T) defines the power delivered to the load during the Modulation period.
T is selected during configuration and its value determines the accuracy of the power control. The default
value is 100 cycles.

Note: The value of ‘T’ is chosen according to the thermal inertia (speed of response) of the load. For
loads with high thermal inertia, a long modulation period may be chosen, as the control integration
time may be several minutes. Where the load has low inertia, long modulation periods can make the
control process unstable if the modulation period approaches the integration time.

9.2 LOAD SEQUENCING
Load sequencing is a time-dependent distribution of Energy through the Load (independent of the installed
power per load) in order to avoid big spikes of power demand at the beginning of each conduction period.
There are a number of different load sequencing types as described below. Which particular type is chosen
depends on the loads being driven. The selection is made in the LoadMng ‘Main’ area of configuration
(section 6.21.1).
9.2.1 Incremental control type 1
With this kind of control, several Loads receive a common Setpoint. One channel is modulated with the
required Duty Cycle . The remaining channels are at 100% (Full conduction) or at 0% (No conduction). The
total power distributed to the Loads is equal to the Setpoint.
For example for 11 Channels and setpoint of 50% (i.e. input of Master channel 1 = 0.5), channels 1 to 5 are
continuously on and channels 7 to 11 are continuously off. Channel 6 modulates with a duty cycle of 50%

Other channels are always either at 100% (Full conduction) or at 0% (No conduction). The total power
distributed to the Loads is equal to the Setpoint.
For example for 11 Channels and setpoint of 50% (i.e. input of Master channel 1 = 0.5), channels 2 to 6 are
continuously on and channels 7 to 11 are continuously off. Channel 1 modulates with a duty cycle of 50%

With this kind of control, each Load has its own setpoint. In order to avoid simultaneous firing in more than
one load, the modulation periods are staggered by a time given by  = T/N, where T is the modulation
period configured by the user, and N is the number of channels.

With this kind of control, Loads are grouped together, with each group having a single setpoint which
applies to all the channels in that group. Incremental control type 2 is applied within each group and
distributed control is applied to the groups.

channel, via its parameter LMChan ‘Group’.

9.3 LOAD SHARING
Load Sharing controls the time distribution of Total Power amongst loads, taking into account the amount
of Power required by each load.
9.3.1 Total power demand
Each burst of power is defined by three parameters
1. P (Maximum load power) (Depends on line voltage and load impedance: P=V2/Z)
2.  (Duty cycle (Ton/T))
3. D (Delay time).
Where more than one load (channel) is being used, the Total power demand varies in a complex way, as can
be seen in the simple example, with just two channels, shown in figure 9.3.1 below.

9.3.2 Sharing Efficiency Factor (F)
The Sharing Efficiency Factor (F) is defined as follows:
F=
Pmax –(CPmax –CPmin)
Pmax
Where CPmax is the maximum of all the Cumulative Powers and CPmin the minimum. Sharing Efficiency
increases as F approaches 1. That is, the closer CPmax and CPmin are to Pt, the higher the sharing efficiency.

Figure 9.3.3a Sharing algorithm overview
The goal of the “Efficient Power” algorithm is to keep the value of F as close as possible to 1. To achieve this,
the following parameters are manipulated:
1. The Delay time (D) for each load modulation
2. The order in which loads are modulated.
The algorithm itself is made of several steps which are computed before each modulation period.
1. The master determines the total number of channels (n)
2. The master determines the setpoint (Power Demand) for each channel. This gives the Duty Cycle and
the Max Power of the Load PZmax.
3. Burst Image Initialisation. Each Burst (Bi) is seen as a Rectangle (Ri), where i is between 1 and ‘n’
inclusive. Eventually, these i rectangles will be placed in time, but initially they are not placed.
4. Cumulative Band Initialisation
5. Calculation of Pt and Pmax from the following equations, where L = duty cycle and H = load power:
n
Pt   ( Ri L  Ri H )
i 1
n
Pmax   Ri H
i 1
6. Rectangle placement. Each rectangle is placed and the bands modified in consequence.
The same algorithm is performed several times and iteratively for all the rectangles. From the result, the
solution with the best Efficiency Factor is taken as definitive result.

9.4 LOAD SHEDDING
Load Shedding controls the total power distribution amongst loads by reducing the amount of Power
distributed for each load so that the global power demanded is less than a given maximum (Ps). Load
Shedding and Load Sharing may be used together if required.
9.4.1 Definitions
Pz = the power installed on a particular channel (zone). For channel ‘i’, Pz is given by the following equation:
Pzimax 
Vi 2
Ri
This parameter (PZMax) is available to the user in the Block ‘LMChan’.
The Total Installed Power is the sum of all the relevant Maximum Load Powers. Thus, for n channels, the total
Installed Power on the network (Pmax) is given by:
n
Pmax   PZimax
i 1
Pmax is available to the user in the Block ‘LoadMng.Network’.
The actual power demanded on channel ‘i’ depends on the duty cycle as follows:
Pti = i x PZimax
Pti is available to the user as parameter ‘PBurst’ in the Block ‘Network.Meas’* if no shedding is applied.
* Note: Not to be confused with ‘LoadMng.Network’.
The total power demanded on the Network is:
Pt 
n

i 1
Pt
i
This parameter (Pt) is available to the user in the Block ‘LoadMng.Network’, and represents the Mean Power
which would be dissipated in the Load during one Modulation Period, if Load Shedding were not applied.
9.4.2 Reduction of power demand
A further parameter (Ps) is available to the user in the Block ‘LoadMng.Network’. Ps is used to restrict the
power demanded from the network to an absolute maximum value
For example the total installed power could be 2.5MW, but the user wishes to restrict the delivered power
to below a tariff band of 2MW. In such a case Ps would be set to 2MW and power would be shed throughout
the network in order to keep the total demand below 2MW.
If Ps > Pmax, load shedding is disabled.
If PsPt, no reduction is applied. If Ps<Pt, each duty cycle () is reduced by multiplying it by a reduction factor
‘r’ given by the equation below. The reduction factor is applied to each channel.
Ps
r = Pt
HA179769
Issue 11 Dec 15
Page 195
EPOWER CONTROLLER USER GUIDE
9 4 2 REDUCTION OF POWER DEMAND (Cont.)
The resulting Power for a given channel (i) is:
Pri = r x i x Pti
The parameter Pri is available to the user as ‘PBurst’ in the Block ‘Network.Meas’ for each channel.
The resulting power is then:
n
Pr   Pri
i 1
This parameter ‘Pr’ is available to the user in the Block LoadMng.Network.
Note: if all Shedding Ability Factors (see below) are zero, Pr must be close to Ps
SHEDDING ABILITY FACTOR
For some applications, the power demand must be maintained for particular channels. For this reason a
parameter called ‘Shedding Ability Factor’ can be configured for each channel, to define the threshold at
which any reducing factor is applied to the channel.
This parameter (ShedFactor) is available to the user in the Block ‘LMChan’
The reduction coefficient (r) is recalculated for each channel, in the following way, where ‘s’ is the
ShedFactor:
If si > r, then ri = si; If si <= r, then ri = r
For example, if si = 100% no reducing coefficient is applied to channel ‘i’; if si = 0% the reducing coefficient
r is always applied, as it is, to channel ‘i’.
The resulting Power for a given channel is now: Pri = ri x i x Pti
with: Ps  Pr  Pt
Note: If Pr is greater than Ps, due to the shedding ability coefficient applied to some channels on the
Network, an indication alarm ‘PrOverPs’ is issued (see below).

9.5 CONFIGURATION
9.5.1 iTools Graphical wiring
Load Management configuration is carried out in the following stages:
STANDARD POWER CONTROL LOOP
Each Channel is built and configured from standard blocks. Figure 9.5.1a shows a typical example.
Figure 9.5.1a Control loop wiring in iTools
Each channel may be of any type, single phase, 2-legs or three phase.
Note: Load Management sets the Modulator type to ‘BurstFix’. Similarly, Burst length is defined by
the LM Master.
LOAD MANAGEMENT CHANNELS (LMCHAN 1 TO LMCHAN 4)
For each Channel, the Modulator Block input ‘LMIn’ must be wired to the LMout parameter of an LMChan
Block. Each channel is then managed by its own LMChan block. Figure 9.5.1b shows a configuration of three
single phase control channels.
GLOBAL LOAD MANAGEMENT CONTROL (LOADMNG)
The LoadMng Block is added. Each LMChan LmIn parameter is wired to a LoadMng LMout parameter.
Figure 9.5.1c shows the complete configuration
Notes:
1. If a channel is not wired to a slot of the LoadMng block, it doesn’t participate to the Load
Management process.
2. On a Given Station, it is allowed to mix channels which participate to the PLM process, and
channels which do not.
CALCULATION AND COMMUNICATIONS
The Unit performs all the operations needed by the Predictive Load Management process transparently to
the user.

Note: If Type is not ‘LMNo’ and ‘Address’ is non-zero, the Master impose its own Type of Load
Management on the associated slaves.
PERIOD
This configures the modulation period for the Station. This is used only by the PLM master and is imposed
on all slaves. It is recommended that all slaves are configured to have the same modulation period so that
should the master lose control, the newly elected master will inherit the period from the previous master. If
the period is different, the new master imposes its own period on the network at the next power-cycle.
‘Period’ may be set in the range of 50 to 1000 mains periods. The accuracy of the power control is related to
this value. To increase the accuracy you must increase the period (section 9.1.2).

Ps
The total amount of power allowed on the Network using Load Shedding. Configured by the user in order
to restrict the power demanded from the network.
For example the total installed power could be 2.5MW but it is required that the delivered power be
restricted to below a tariff band of 2MW. In such a case Ps would be set to 2MW and power would be shed
across the network to ensure that the total demand remains below 2MW.
If Ps is set to a value greater than Pmax, Load Shedding is disabled. The default value for this parameter is
set to 5MW. For almost applications, this disables the Load Shedding function

9.6 MASTER ELECTION
This mechanism ensures that the Active Station with the lowest address is elected the Master. The election
process can be initiated in any of the circumstances detailed below. During the election process, the Station
Status is ‘Pending’.
As soon a Station has been recognized as Master, its Status changes to ‘IsMaster’. As soon a Station has been
recognized as Slave, its Status changes to ‘IsSlave’.

2.
3.
4.
The election process starts at Initialisation Time and continues until all Stations have found the Master.
The election process is initiated if a Station has not received a firing demand for 100ms or more.
It is assumed that, if a Master has lost control, it will be re-initialised before being re-inserted into the
Network, automatically activating the Master election process.
A new Station inserted into the System automatically triggers the Master election.
Notes:
1. The Election mechanism is asynchronous and may be triggered at any time.
2. During the Election mechanism, Duplicate Address detection is performed. If an address is
recognised as duplicate, the Status of the Station changes to ‘DupplAddr’.

9.7 ALARM INDICATION
PROVERPS
Indication Alarm: Pr over Ps:
This tells the user that the real Power Pr is greater than the requested ‘shed power’ Ps. This is the case where
a shed factor has been applied to one or more channels. Alternatively, the alarm may be caused by the false
calibration of one or more channels.
This parameter appears only at the Master Station.
9.8 TROUBLE SHOOTING
9.8.1 Wrong Station status
DUPLICATE LM ADDRESS
One or more Stations have the same PLM address. These Stations are excluded from the PLM process.
Note: Zero is not a valid PLM address. When the PLM address is set to zero, the Station is excluded
from the PLM process.
STATION STATUS PERMANENTLY ‘PENDING’
PLM Address is set to 0
Hardware wiring error. Ensure that all ‘High’ pins are correctly daisy chained and that all ‘Low’ pins are
correctly daisy-chained. If there is a break, it is likely that two or more masters will be elected and be working
in opposition with one another.
PLM option board not fitted correctly
STATION TYPE MISMATCH
There is nothing to prevent single-phase and three-phase units being mixed. This should be avoided by
grouping the single-phase units on one PLM Network, and the three-phase units on another.

10 ALARMS
10.1 SYSTEM ALARMS
System alarms are considered to be ‘Major Events’ which prevent proper operation of the system, and the
relevant module is placed in standby mode. In some configurations (e.g. four × single-phase) it is possible
that a system alarm generated in one power module will set only that module into standby mode, and the
other three phases will continue as normal.
The following subsections describe each of the possible system alarms.
10.1.1 Missing mains
Supply power is missing from the relevant power module. If one or more phase out of two or three phase
systems are missing, the system stops firing altogether, in order to avoid unbalanced firing. The alarm
trigger depends on the type of load coupling.
10.1.2 Thyristor short circuit
A thyristor short circuit leads to current flow even when not firing.
10.1.3 Thyristor open circuit
This fault means that no current flow occurs, even when the thyristor(s) should be firing. The fault is detected
is by measuring the load voltage, so the fault is not detected if the remote sensing option is fitted.
10.1.4 Fuse blown
High speed fuses are fitted in series with the thyristors in order to protect them.
10.1.5 Over temperature
The thyristor heat sink temperature is measured and if it is considered to be too high for the current
application, the over temperature alarm is set and firing is inhibited. Hysteresis is built in to the measurement
system to ensure that the heat sink is allowed to cool properly before firing can re-commence.
10.1.6 Network dips
This detects a reduction is supply voltage, and if this reduction exceeds a configurable measured value
(VdipsThreshold), firing will be inhibited until the supply voltage returns to a suitable value. VdipsThreshold
represents a percentage change in supply voltage between successive half cycles, and can be defined by
the user in the Network.Setup menu, as described in section 6.20.2.
10.1.7 Mains frequency fault
Triggered if the supply voltage frequency strays out of the range 47 to 63 Hz, or if the mains frequency
changes, for one cycle to the next, by more than 0.18% of base frequency, or by more than 0.9% of the
frequency measured last cycle. Firing stops until the supply frequency returns to a satisfactory state.
10.1.8 Power board 24V fail
The 24 Volt supply rail in the power module has failed. The power module stops firing immediately, and
does not restart until the fault is rectified.
HA179769
Issue 11 Dec 15
Page 211
EPOWER CONTROLLER USER GUIDE
10.2 PROCESS ALARMS
Process Alarms are related to the application and can be configured either to stop the power module firing
(Standby Mode) or to allow operation to continue. Process alarms can also be configured to be latched and
if so, they have to be acknowledged before the alarm is considered to be non-active. Alarms cannot be
acknowledged until the trigger source has returned to a non-active state.
10.2.1 Total Load Failure (TLF)
No load is connected to one or more power controllers.
The detection is based on RMS load current and RMS load voltage of the last mains half cycle. In case of total
load failure, a load voltage is measured even though load current is equal or close to zero. This method
might not indicate the failed phase accurately in all load configurations (e.g. closed delta configuration for
3 phase load).
10.2.2 Output short circuit
Firing is stopped if a short circuit is detected in the output circuit.
10.2.3 Chop Off
Triggered by one of two user configurable parameters viz: ChopOff1 Threshold and ChopOff2 Threshold
(to be found in the Network.setup area of configuration (section 6.20.2)).
‘ChopOff1 Threshold’ triggers the chop off alarm when the load current meets or exceeds the threshold for
more than 5 seconds. Firing stops, and will not re-start until the alarm is acknowledged. The threshold can
be set to any value between 100% and 150% of the nominal load current.
‘ChopOff2 Threshold’ triggers the chop-off alarm if the load current meets or exceeds the ChopOff1
threshold more than ‘Number Chop Off’ times in ‘Window Chop Off’ seconds, where ‘Number Chop Off’ is
configurable between 1 and 16, and ‘Window Chop Off’ can take values between 1 and 65535 seconds
(both values inclusive).
Firing stops in the relevant power module, each time the threshold is met or exceeded. Firing restarts after
100ms providing that the threshold has not been exceeded the specified number of times within the
specified number of seconds. Otherwise, firing remains disabled until the alarm is acknowledged.
Note: for two- or three-phase systems the over-current measurements relate to the maximum
current in any phase, regardless of which phase may be at fault.
10.2.4 Mains Voltage Fault
Two thresholds ‘OverVoltThreshold’ and ‘UnderVoltThreshold’ can be configured as a percentage of
VLineNominal. Both parameters are to be found in the Network.Setup area of configuration (section 6.20.2).
The threshold check of each line voltage is implemented in the corresponding network task of the power
controller. This fault is indicated within 1 mains cycle period.
Note: This Alarm is returned FALSE if the MissingMains Alarm is set on this phase.
10.2.5 Temperature pre-Alarm
This function acts as a warning which becomes active when unexpectedly high operational temperatures are
reached. The warning becomes active before unit operation stops.
HeatsinkPreTemp threshold is configured (between 30°C and 107°C) and if this value is exceeded by the
heat sink in any Power module, the alarm is triggered. A hysteresis of 2°C is applied to avoid fast toggling.
The parameter is to be found in Network.Setup, as described in section 6.20.2.

EPOWER CONTROLLER USER GUIDE
10.2.6 Partial Load Failure (PLF)
See also ‘PARTIAL LOAD FAILURE CALCULATIONS’ in section 6.20.2.
This alarm detects a static increase in load impedance by comparing the reference load impedance (as
configured by the user) with the actual measured load impedance over a mains cycle (for phase angle firing)
and over the burst period (for burst and logic firing).
The sensitivity of the partial load failure measurement can be set to any value between 2 to 6 inclusive, where
an entry of 2, for example, means that one half of the elements (or more) must be open circuit in order to
trigger the alarm; an entry of 3 means that one third of the elements (or more) must be open circuit in order
to trigger the alarm, and so on down to one sixth. All elements must have identical characteristics and
identical impedance values and must be connected in parallel).
The relevant parameters (PLFAdjustReq, and PLFSensitivity) are both to be found in Network.Setup, as
described in section 6.20.2.
For three-phase loads, the impedance reference can be set only if the load is balanced.
Note: This Alarm is returned FALSE if the TLF (Total Load Failure) Alarm is set on this phase.
10.2.7 Partial Load Unbalance (PLU)
This alarm is applicable only to three-phase load configurations and indicates when the difference between
highest and lowest current value reaches a threshold (PLUthreshold) configurable between 5% and 50% of
the highest load current. PLUthreshold appears in Network.Setup, as described in section 6.20.2.
10.3 INDICATION ALARMS
Indication Alarms signal events for operator action if required. Indication alarms cannot be configured to
stop power module firing, but they may be latched if required, and if latched, they must be acknowledged
for the Signalling Status to return to the normal (non-alarm) state.
10.3.1 Process Value Transfer active
Indicates when a transfer control mode (e.g. V2 <> I2 P <> I2 or V2 <> I2) is active.
10.3.2 Limitation active
Indicates when the internal firing control loop limits the firing output (I2 or V2) (in order not to exceed the
adjusted maximum value)
10.3.3 Load Over-Current
Indicates when a configurable RMS load current threshold (OverIthreshold) is reached or exceeded. The
parameter is found in the Network.Setup area of configuration (section 6.20.2) and is configurable as 10%
to 400% of Nominal Current.
10.3.4 Over Load Shedding (Ps over Pr) alarm
Applies only to units fitted with the Load Management option (section 9).
Load Shedding reduces the global power demand Pt to a given level Ps. Load Shedding and Load Sharing
may be applied simultaneously if required.
Ps is the reduced Power; Pt is the total demanded Power. If Ps>=Pt, no reduction is applied. If Ps<Pt, each
Duty Cycle is reduced by multiplying it by a reduction factor (r = Ps/Pt):
For some applications, the Power Demand can not be reduced for particular channels, so each load can be
allocated a ‘Shed factor’ during configuration.
The Reduction coefficient (r) is recalculated for each Channel, such that if si > r then ri = si, but if si  r, then ri
= r. Thus if si = 100% the reducing coefficient is never applied; if si = 0% the reducing coefficient r is always
applied as it is.
Thus, the consumed Power is not Ps as requested, but Pr where Ps  Pr  Pt. The alarm Ps over Pt becomes
active when Pr  Ps, to alert the user to the fact that the actual power is greater than the shed power
requested.
Note: This alarm appears only at the Load Management master station.

MAINS NETWORK MEASUREMENTS
All network measurements are calculated over a full mains cycle, but internally updated every half-cycle. For this reason, power control, current limits and alarms
all run at the mains half-cycle rate. The calculations are based on waveform samples taken at a rate of 20kHz. Measurements on each phase are synchronised to its
own phase and if the line voltage cannot be detected, the measurements stop for that phase. It should be noted that, depending on the configuration, the phase
voltage referred to is one of:
a. the line voltage referenced to neutral in four star,
b. the line voltage referenced to neutral or another phase for single phase or
c. the line voltage referenced to the phase applied to the next adjacent power module for three phase star or delta configurations.
The parameters below are directly derived from measurements for each phase.

EPOWER CONTROLLER USER GUIDE
12.3 THYRISTOR PROTECTION FUSES
The thyristors in the Power modules are protected against excess currents by high-speed fuses
(supplemental fuse) within the power modules.
According to the CE and UL certifications, high speed fuses (supplemental fuse) are mandatory for the
protection of the Epower controller against short circuit. See table 12.3 for details
U.L. : With the high speed fuses (supplemental fuse) as described in the table 12.3 below, EPower is suitable
for use on a circuit capable of delivering not more than 100kA RMS symmetrical amperes, 600 Volts ac
Maximum. (Coordination Type 1)
CE : With the high speed fuses (supplemental fuse) as described in the table 12.3 below, EPower is suitable
for use on a circuit capable of delivering not more than 92kA all modules except:98kA for 500A
modules;105kA for 630A modules ; 690 Volts Maximum. (Coordination Type 1)
WARNING
The internal fuses provide protection for the Power modules against load short circuits, and may not
be considered as providing any kind of branch-circuit protection. It is the user’s responsibility to
provide upstream branch-circuit protection (non high-speed fuses, circuit breakers etc.) to protect
the installation.
UL: The abovementioned branch-circuit protection is necessary for compliance with National
Electric Code (NEC) requirements.
If opening of either the branch circuit protection or the supplemental fuse (high speed fuse), supply
voltages shall be isolated and the EPower unit examined and replaced if damaged.

APPENDIX A REMOTE DISPLAY UNIT
A1 INTRODUCTION
This appendix describes the recommended 32h8e remote display unit for the EPower unit.
This instrument is a horizontal 1/8 DIN indicator and alarm unit that performs the dual function of remote
display and independent ‘policeman’ (to disconnect power should an over temperature or other excess
process condition occur). The unit is intended for indoor use in a permanent installation, enclosed in an
electrical panel. To ensure IP65 and NEMA 4 front sealing against dust and water, the panel should have a
non-textured surface.
Communications between the unit and EPower are via RJ45 ‘Panel comms port’ located on the underside of
the controller module. The communications standard is 3-wire EIA485, and It uses Modbus protocol.
The display unit comes complete with one relay output (OP1) and one analogue output (OP3).
A1.1 SAFETY AND EMC INFORMATION NOTES
WARNING
The safety and EMC protection can be seriously impaired if the unit is not used in the manner
specified. The installer must ensure the safety and EMC of the installation.
WARNING
Live sensors. The remote panel is designed to operate if the temperature sensor is connected
directly to an electrical heating element. However, you must ensure that service personnel do not
touch connections to these inputs while they are live. With a live sensor, all cables, connectors and
switches for connecting the sensor must be mains rated for use in 240Vac CATII.
WARNING
The Remote Panel must not be wired to a three phase supply with an unearthed star connection.
Under fault conditions such a supply could rise above 240Vac with respect to ground and the
product would not be safe.
CAUTION
Charged capacitors: Before removing an instrument from its sleeve, disconnect the supply and wait
at least two minutes to allow capacitors to discharge. Avoid touching the exposed electronics of an
instrument when withdrawing it from the sleeve.

Installation Category and Pollution Degree: This unit has been designed to conform to BSEN61010
installation category II and pollution degree 2, defined as follows:
Installation Category II (CAT II). The rated impulse voltage for equipment on nominal 230V supply is
2500V.
Pollution Degree 2. Normally only non conductive pollution occurs. However, a temporary conductivity
caused by condensation must be expected.
Installation may be carried out only by suitably qualified personnel
To prevent hands or metal tools touching parts that may be electrically live, the Remote Panel must be
installed in an enclosure.
Wiring must comply with all local wiring regulations, i.e. UK, the latest IEE wiring regulations, (BS7671),
and USA, NEC Class 1 wiring methods.
Do not connect AC supply to low voltage sensor input or low level inputs and outputs.
Voltage rating. The maximum continuous voltage applied between any of the following terminals must
not exceed 240Vac:
relay output to logic, dc or sensor connections;
any connection to ground.
Conductive pollution. Electrically conductive pollution i.e. carbon dust, MUST be excluded from the
enclosure in which the Remote Panel is installed. To secure a suitable atmosphere in conditions of
conductive pollution, fit an air filter to the air intake of the enclosure. Where condensation is likely,
include a thermostatically controlled heater in the enclosure.
Grounding of the temperature sensor shield. In some installations it is common practice to replace the
temperature sensor while the Remote Panel is still powered up. Under these conditions, as additional
protection against electric shock, it is recommended that the temperature sensor shield be grounded.
Grounding through the framework of the machine should not be relied on.
Over Temperature Protection. To prevent overheating of the process under fault conditions, a
separate over-temperature protection unit should be fitted which will isolate the heating circuit. This
must have an independent temperature sensor. The 32h8e is intended for this function.
Note: Alarm relays within the unit do not give protection under all failure conditions.
17. To comply with European EMC directive certain installation precautions are necessary:
General guidance. Refer to EMC Installation Guide, Part no. HA025464.
Relay outputs. It may be necessary to fit a suitable filter (depending on load type) to suppress
conducted emissions.
Table top installation. If using a standard power socket, compliance with commercial and light
industrial emissions standard is usually required. To comply with conducted emissions standard, a
suitable mains filter must be installed.

A3.2.3 Signal wiring
Notes:
1. Input wires should not be run in proximity with power cables
2. When shielded cable is used, it should be grounded at one point only
3. Any external components (such as Zener barriers) connected between sensor and input terminals
may cause errors in measurement due to excessive and/or unbalanced lead resistance and
leakage currents.
4. Analogue inputs are not isolated from digital inputs or from logic outputs.

Notes:
1. For thermocouple inputs, compensation cable suitable for the thermocouple type must be used,
preferably shielded.
2. For voltage inputs an attenuator board must be fitted as shown. A suitable board is available
from the manufacturer.
3. For resistance temperature detectors, the resistance element is wired across V+ and VI; the lead
compensation wire being terminated at V-. The resistance of all three wires must be equal. Line
resistances greater than 22 Ohms cause measurement errors.

A3.3 OVER TEMPERATURE APPLICATION WIRING
Figure A3.3 shows a typical application where the Remote Display Unit is used to trip the main contactor to
the EPower units if it detects an over-temperature.
The figure is intended for guidance only, and does not show detailed EPower wiring, this being discussed
in depth in section A2 of this manual.
Notes:
1. When switching inductive loads, the 22nF/100 Ohm snubber (supplied with the instrument)
should be wired across the relay connections as shown.
2. Snubbers pass 0.6mA at 110V and 1.2mA at 230Vac. This is sometimes sufficient to hold high
impedance loads on. Snubbers should not be used in such cases.

A4 FIRST SWITCH ON
At first switch on, after the start-up sequence, the initial configuration page is displayed.
Note: the following ‘quickstart’ description apples only to new (not previously configured)
instruments. If the instrument has previously been configured (either at the factory or subsequently)
the instruments starts up showing the relevant process value.
The initial display shows ‘Set1’ on the top line, with a coded display below (figure A4) with its first item
flashing. The lower line is decoded as shown in table A4a.
The ‘mode’ (up/down arrows) are used to scroll through the available choices for each item. Once the
required value is displayed, the scroll key is used to select the next character for editing. Once all five
characters have been edited, further operations of the scroll key call the range high display (allowing the
high range value to be edited using the mode keys), then the range low display (allowing the low range
value to be edited). A further operation calls the Set2 display, which is decoded in table A4b.
After Set2 parameters have been edited, a further operation of the scroll key invites the user to Exit.
Operating the scroll key returns to the Set1 display; operating a mode key to display ‘yes’ quits the quickstart
menu and causes the unit to enter operating mode.

Notes:
1. In order for the unit to act as an over-temperature ‘police officer’, the OP1 alarm type should be
selected as a high alarm.
2. The relay output automatically operates in fail-safe mode, in that it is de-energised in Alarm. It will
thus enter an alarm state when power is removed from the unit.
3. To re-enter quickstart mode,
Remove power from the unit
Keeping the ‘Page’ key operated continuously, restore power and wait until a password is
requested. Release the ‘Page’ key and use the up/down arrow keys to enter the quickstart
password (default = 4).
A5 OPERATING MODE
A5.1 FRONT PANEL LAYOUT
When the instrument starts, or after quitting the quickstart procedure, the Operator level 1 display is entered
and the page defined as the ‘Home’ page in ‘Set 1’ is displayed (unless there are any errors, in which case
the unit displays the relevant error messages). Figure A5.1, below, shows the home page for the case where
‘V’ has been selected as Home display in ‘Set 1’.

REM/MAN BEACONS
Table A5.1.1 summarises the operating characteristics of the ‘REM’ and ‘MAN’ beacons which depend on
the network with which the currently displayed value is associated, and on which SetProv function blocks are
enabled (if any).
Network 1
If no SetProv blocks are enabled, then MAN always illuminated.
Otherwise REM/MAN operation depends on SetProv1 ‘SPselect’
parameter.
Network 2
If no SetProv blocks are enabled, then MAN always illuminated.
If SetProv.1 and SetProv.2 are enabled, REM/MAN operation depends on
SetProv.2 ‘SPselect’ parameter.
If SetProv.1 and SetProv.3 are enabled, REM/MAN operation depends on
SetProv.3 ‘SPselect’ parameter.
If only SetProv.1 enabled: REM/MAN operation depends on SetProv1
‘SPselect’ parameter.
Network 3
If no SetProv blocks enabled, then MAN always illuminated.
If SetProv.1 and SetProv.3 are enabled, REM/MAN operation depends on
SetProv.3 ‘SPselect’ parameter.
If only SetProv.1 enabled, REM/MAN operation depends on SetProv1
‘SPselect’ parameter.
Network 4
If no SetProv blocks enabled, then MAN always illuminated.
If SetProv.1 and SetProv.4 are enabled, REM/MAN operation depends on
SetProv.4 ‘SPselect’ parameter.
If only SetProv.1 enabled, REM/MAN operation depends on SetProv1
‘SPselect’ parameter.
Table A5.1.1 REM/MAN beacon characteristics
A5.2 LEVEL 1 OPERATION
Level 1 operation is entered when Set2 is quit, or after applying power to the instrument (other than at first
power-up).
Level 1 operation allows the user to scroll through the various parameters associated with the instrument on
a Read-only basis. The parameters which appear depend on the configuration. Figure A5.2a is an example
showing the display pages where the home page (set 1) is PV only and the configuration comprises one or
more single phase EPower units. Figure A5.2b is an example giving the parameters for a 2x2 leg, threephase configuration.

A5.4.1 Level 3/Conf parameters
Most Level 3 and/or Configuration level parameters associated with the remote panel indicator are
described in the 3200i Engineering Handbook (HA029006) available from the manufacturer. There are a
number of additional parameters associated with the 32h8e, which are described below.
Level 3 access level makes those operating parameters, which are not Read only available to the user.
Examples are Input Filter Time Constant, Alarm Delay time, and so on. Level 3 is used, typically, when
commissioning the indicator.
Configuration level enables the fundamental characteristics of the indicator to be changed. This includes the
quick-start code parameters amongst others.
The menu structures for Level 3 and Configuration levels are identical (see figure A5.4.1a) but there are more
parameters available within each ‘heading’ at Configuration level.

A6 OTHER FEATURES
A6.1 ALARMS AND ERRORS
A6.1.1 Alarm indication
Up to four alarms can be set up in configuration level (refer to HA029006 for full details). Each alarm can be
configured as ‘nonE’ (off), HI (high), Lo (low), r.roc (rising rate-of-change) or F.roc (falling rate-of-change).
If any alarm occurs the ALM beacon flashes, any output associated with the alarm becomes active, and the
message area of the display shows a scrolling text message describing the alarm state. If the display is
configured to go red on alarm (Set 2), the PV colour changes to flashing red.
A6.1.2 Alarm acknowledgement
Alarms are acknowledged by operating the Page key and the Scroll key
simultaneously.
Further to this a global acknowledge of EPower alarms occurs when:
1.
2.
The indicator home page is selected, or
When the EPower Home page is displayed and the Home page is hidden
The results of alarm acknowledgement are as follows:
1.
2.
3.
4.
For EPower alarms, the alarm indication at the EPower operator interface is
acknowledged (removed). The alarm indication remains at the 32h8e until the alarm is no longer
active.
For Temperature (Process) auto-latching alarms, the alarm beacon and Process value stop flashing.
Any output assigned to the alarm continues to operate until the alarm trigger is no longer active. If
configured to change colour (Set 2), the process value returns to green only when the alarm trigger is
no longer active.
For Temperature (Process) manual-latching alarms, acknowledgement has no effect, and the alarm
indication continues until the alarm trigger is no longer active.
When EPower and auto-latching process alarms are both present, acknowledgement causes the
beacon and Process Value (PV) display to stop flashing. Should the Process Value alarm subsequently
go non-active, leaving only the EPower alarm, the beacon and PV display will resume flashing. For
manual-latching alarms, acknowledge is ignored and the alarm indication continues until the alarm
trigger is no longer active.
Note: Alarm parameters can be configured in Configuration mode, as described in the 3200i
Engineering handbook HA029006.
A6.1.3 Sensor Break detection and indication
An alarm condition (Sbr) is indicated if the indicator detects a break, or over range condition in the
temperature sensor circuit.
Notes:
1. For a resistance thermometer a sensor break is indicated if any of the three wires is broken.
2. mA sensor breaks are not detected because the effect is masked by the resistor across the input.
3. For Volt inputs, sensor breaks might not always be detected, because the effect is masked by the
attenuator (potential divider) board connected across the input.

EPOWER CONTROLLER USER GUIDE
A6.1.4 Error indication
The following error indications can appear, flashing, in the top line of the display:
Com.Er
EP.CnF
EP.Er
Communication error. Modbus transactions between the 32h8e and the
EPower driver module fail. Can be caused by a break in the physical
communications link, by the EPower module being powered down etc.
The number of power modules is selected as zero. The indicator can
therefore not show Current, Voltage or Power values.
One or more ‘Fatal’, ‘Config’ or ‘Standby’ error has been detected.
The error condition(s) must be cleared before the 32h8e will respond to operator keystrokes.
A6.1.5 EPower Event and Alarm Messages

Supply power to one or more power modules is not connected, or is isolated.
A thyristor short circuit has been detected. In such a case, current flows even when
the thyristor is not ‘firing’.
A thyristor open circuit has been detected. In such a case, no current flows even
when the thyristor is ‘firing’.
One or more of the thyristor protection fuses has ruptured.
The thyristor heat sink temperature has exceeded the specified limit, and the
thyristor has been shut down. The temperature must fall to below the specified limit
(including the hysteresis value) before firing can re-commence.
This detects a reduction in supply voltage. Detection threshold is set up in EPower
configuration (Network/Setup).
Supply frequency is below 47Hz or above 63Hz. Firing stops until the supply
frequency has returned to a value between 47Hz and 63Hz.
The 24V power rail in a power module has failed. Firing stops and restarts only when
the problem has been resolved.
Total load failure. The load connection from one or more power modules is missing
or open circuit.
Triggered if the load current meets or exceeds a specified threshold for more than
five seconds. Firing stops until either the alarm is acknowledged or until 100mS has
elapsed, according to configuration. See Network/Setup for further details.
Partial Load Failure. The alarm is triggered if a change in static load impedance is
detected over a mains cycle (phase angle mode) or burst period (burst or logic
mode). The sensitivity of the measurement can be configured as described in the
Network/Setup area of EPower configuration.
Partial Load Unbalance. This alarm is triggered when the difference between the
maximum and minimum currents of a three-phase system exceeds a configurable
threshold. See Network/Setup for further details.
One or more phases missing or out of limits.
Acts as a warning that the operating temperature is unexpectedly high. This alarm
becomes active before unit operation is stopped.
One or more power module watchdogs has performed a reset.
A power module communications error has been detected. Typically this would be
caused by a damaged inter-module ribbon cable.
A power module communications time out error has occurred. Typically this would
be caused by a damaged inter-module ribbon cable.
The control loop cannot achieve setpoint, despite the loop demanding 0% or 100%
power. Typically caused by external constraints on the load.
A short circuit has been detected in the output circuit. Firing is inhibited.

EPOWER CONTROLLER USER GUIDE
A6.2 RECIPES
Note: Level two access (section A5.3) is required in order for the user to be able to save and/or
restore ‘recipes’ as described below.
It is possible to store operating values by tacking a ‘snapshot’ of the current settings and storing these
snapshots in one of up to five ‘recipes’. An example would be to store several sets of alarm setpoint values,
one of which can then be recalled for a particular process.
To store values in a recipe:
1.
In the level two list of parameters (figure A5.3.1), press the scroll key repeatedly (or hold continuously)
until ‘STORE’ appears.
Select a recipe number using the up/down arrow keys. After a few seconds the word donE appears to
indicate that the current parameter values have been saved to the selected recipe number. Previous
values are over-written without confirmation.
2.
To retrieve a recipe:
1.
In the level two list of parameters (figure A5.3.1), press the scroll key repeatedly (or hold continuously)
until ‘RECNO’ appears, along with a number (between 1 and 5 inclusive) indicating which recipe was
last selected.
Select the required recipe number using the up/down arrow keys. After a few seconds the recipe
number will blink, to indicate that the load is complete. If the selected recipe is empty, the word FAIL
appears instead of the recipe number.
2.
A6.3 EPOWER SETPROV CONFIGURATIONS
If EPower is configured via QuickStart and the analogue input has been set to ‘Setpoint’, then, in a multiple
network configuration, QuickStart will wire SetProv1 ‘workingSP’ to the ‘Main.SP’ of all the networks’ Control
blocks so that all the control blocks share the same setpoint.
Figure A6.3, below shows two examples of this, as displayed in the iTools Graphical wiring editor.

EPOWER CONTROLLER USER GUIDE
A6.3 EPOWER SETPROV CONFIGURATIONS (Cont.)
If EPower is configured using QuickStart, and the analogue input is not set to ‘Setpoint’, then none of the SetProv function blocks is enabled and each control block setpoint can be set locally.
If EPower is configured using the iTools Graphical wiring editor, then it is possible to enable all of the SetProv
function blocks, thus allowing each control block to have individual local or remote setpoints. This flexibility
has an effect on the operation of the REM and MAN beacons, as described in section A5.1.1.

A6.4 PV RETRANSMISSION
EPower parameters may be communicated to a Fieldbus Network Master i.e. SCADA package, PLC or DCS
system. The 32h8e is intended as an independent policeman, and its process PV may also be communicated
to the Fieldbus network master. To this end, the 32h8e PV is written every 1/2 second to the EPower’s
Instrument.Config.RemotePV parameter, which can then be transmitted to the master device.
PV retransmission is also provided as an analogue (V or mA) signal at the analogue output OP3. This may be
used as a back-up to the digitally communicated parameter in the event of a failure of the communications
link.

The following source parameters can be logically OR’ed together to give a digital output state.
1.SRC.A
1.SRC.B
1.SRC.C
1.SRC.D
EP.AL
1.SRC.A to 1.SRC.D are described in the Engineering Handbook (HA029006); EP.AL is defined as: All
EPower alarms.
Note: the ALL.A (All Alarms) parameter includes the above EP.AL as well as the indicator alarms.
A6.6 HOME PAGE TIMEOUT
The 32h8e normally forces the display to return to the Home page after a period of keyboard inactivity.
If, however, the current focus is on an EPower parameter, then the HOME Page timeout is not imposed, thus
allowing the user to display a specific Network parameter indefinitely (providing that auto-scrolling is
disabled).

APPENDIX B THREE PHASE FEEDBACK
B1 TRANSFORMER REPRESENTATION AND LABELLING
Note: The current transformer should be chosen such that its full-scale output is 5 Amps.
Figure B1, shows a common way of showing typical three phase transformers of various types. Each type is
useful for particular applications, for example a Delta primary helps with a more even distribution of loading
if the secondary loads are not well matched, whilst a Star wound secondary provides a convenient Earth or
Neutral tap for connection near the transformer.
For closed systems, windings corresponding to a particular phase are marked with a prefix number
indicating that phase, for example ‘1P’ and ‘3S’ represent phase one primary and phase three secondary
respectively. For open Delta systems, each winding is identified by two labels; for example, 1S1 and 1S2
represent the two ends of phase one secondary whilst 2P1 and 2P2 would represent the phase two primary.
The voltages and currents in any one phase are tightly coupled and the primary and secondary voltages are
(more-or-less) in phase with one another. Each phase is 120 degrees out of phase with the other two.

B2 EXTERNAL FEEDBACK PHASING
External feedback consists of both current measurement (using a current transformer) and voltage
measurements across the load (tap locations depend on the network layout). The signals from these
feedback elements are terminated at a connector located on the underside of the power units, as shown in
figure B2.

B2.2 FEEDBACK EXAMPLES FOR TYPICAL THREE PHASE NETWORKS
CAUTION
Where applicable, reference connections to phase power or to neutral must be located between
any isolating device and the relevant Power Module.
Note:
1. The figures below are intended only as theoretical examples. In order to comply with NEC
requirements, branch circuit protection must be incorporated by the user, upstream of the
equipment. Such protection is not shown in the figures below, for the sake of clarity. The
installation, in its entirety, must comply with all applicable local safety and emissions regulations.
2. For pdf viewers, the colours used in the figures below are used only to improve clarity. No
polarity should be inferred (e.g. blue wires are not necessarily neutral; red is not positive etc.)
