GENERAL DESCRIPTION
through the bus. Additionally, the meters have a feature that allows a remote
computer to directly control the outputs of the meter. With an RS232 or RS485
card installed, it is possible to configure the meter using Red Lion’s Crimson
software. The configuration data can be saved to a file for later recall.
A linear DC output signal is available as an optional Plug-in card for the PAXI
only. The card provides either 20 mA or 10 V signals. The output can be scaled
independent of the input range and can track any of the counter or rate displays.
Once the meters have been initially configured, the parameter list may be
locked out from further modification in its entirety or only the setpoint values
can be made accessible.
The meters have been specifically designed for harsh industrial environments.
With NEMA 4X/IP65 sealed bezel and extensive testing of noise effects to CE
requirements, the meter provides a tough yet reliable application solution.
The PAX Digital Input Panel Meters offer many features and performance
capabilities to suit a wide range of industrial applications. Available in three
different models, PAXC Counter/Dual Counter, PAXR Rate Meter and the PAXI
which offers both counting and rate in the same package. Refer to pages 4 - 5 for
the details on the specific models. The PAXC and PAXR offer only the Setpoint
Option, while the PAXI is the fully featured version offering all the capabilities
as outlined in this bulletin as well as a slave display feature. The optional plug-in
output cards allow the opportunity to configure the meter for present applications,
while providing easy upgrades for future needs.
The meters employ a bright 0.56" LED display. The meters are available with
a red sunlight readable or standard green LED display. The intensity of the
display can be adjusted from dark room applications up to sunlight readable,
making it ideal for viewing in bright light applications.
The meters accept digital inputs from a variety of sources including switch
contacts, outputs from CMOS or TTL circuits, magnetic pickups and all
standard RLC sensors. The meter can accept directional, uni-directional or
Quadrature signals simultaneously. The maximum input signal varies up to 34
KHz depending on the count mode and function configurations programmed.
Each input signal can be independently scaled to various process values.
The Rate Meters provide a MAX and MIN reading memory with programmable
capture time. The capture time is used to prevent detection of false max or min
readings which may occur during start-up or unusual process events.
The meters have four setpoint outputs, implemented on Plug-in option cards.
The Plug-in cards provide dual FORM-C relays (5A), quad FORM-A (3A), or
either quad sinking or quad sourcing open collector logic outputs. The setpoint
alarms can be configured to suit a variety of control and alarm requirements.
Communication and Bus Capabilities are also available as option cards for
the PAXI only. These include RS232, RS485, Modbus, DeviceNet, and
Profibus-DP. Readout values and setpoint alarm values can be controlled

Meter
the
Installation
While holding the unit in place, push the panel latch over the rear of the unit
so that the tabs of the panel latch engage in the slots on the case. The panel
latch should be engaged in the farthest forward slot possible. To achieve a
proper seal, tighten the latch screws evenly until the unit is snug in the panel
(Torque to approximately 7 in-lbs [79N-cm]). Do not over-tighten the screws.
The PAX meets NEMA 4X/IP65 requirements when properly installed. The
unit is intended to be mounted into an enclosed panel. Prepare the panel cutout
to the dimensions shown. Remove the panel latch from the unit. Slide the panel
gasket over the rear of the unit to the back of the bezel. The unit should be
installed fully assembled. Insert the unit into the panel cutout.
Installation Environment
PANEL
The unit should be installed in a location that does not exceed the operating
temperature and provides good air circulation. Placing the unit near devices
that generate excessive heat should be avoided.
The bezel should only be cleaned with a soft cloth and neutral soap product.
Do NOT use solvents. Continuous exposure to direct sunlight may accelerate
the aging process of the bezel.

3.0 Installing Plug-In Cards
To Install:
The Plug-in cards are separately purchased optional cards that perform
specific functions. These cards plug into the main circuit board of the meter. The
Plug-in cards have many unique functions when used with the PAX.
Note: The PAXC and PAXR only use the setpoint option card.
1. With the case open, locate the Plug-in card connector for the card type to be
installed. The types are keyed by position with different main circuit board
connector locations. When installing the card, hold the meter by the rear
terminals and not by the front display board.*
2. Install the Plug-in card by aligning the card terminals with the slot bay in the
rear cover. Be sure the connector is fully engaged and the tab on the Plug-in
card rests in the alignment slot on the display board.
3. Slide the meter base back into the case. Be sure the rear cover latches fully
into the case.
4. Apply the Plug-in card label to the bottom side of the meter in the designated
area. Do Not Cover the vents on the top surface of the meter. The surface of
the case must be clean for the label to adhere properly.
CAUTION: The Plug-in card and main circuit board contain static sensitive
components. Before handling the cards, discharge static charges
from your body by touching a grounded bare metal object. Ideally,
handle the cards at a static controlled clean workstation. Also, only
handle the cards by the edges. Dirt, oil or other contaminants that
may contact the cards can adversely affect circuit operation.

4.0 Wiring
the
Meter
WIRING OVERVIEW
the noise source frequency is above 1 MHz.
c. Connect the shield to common of the meter and leave the other end of the
shield unconnected and insulated from earth ground.
3. Never run Signal or Control cables in the same conduit or raceway with AC
power lines, conductors feeding motors, solenoids, SCR controls, and
heaters, etc. The cables should be ran in metal conduit that is properly
grounded. This is especially useful in applications where cable runs are long
and portable two-way radios are used in close proximity or if the installation
is near a commercial radio transmitter.
4. Signal or Control cables within an enclosure should be routed as far as possible
from contactors, control relays, transformers, and other noisy components.
5. In extremely high EMI environments, the use of external EMI suppression
devices, such as ferrite suppression cores, is effective. Install them on Signal
and Control cables as close to the unit as possible. Loop the cable through the
core several times or use multiple cores on each cable for additional
protection. Install line filters on the power input cable to the unit to suppress
power line interference. Install them near the power entry point of the
enclosure. The following EMI suppression devices (or equivalent) are
recommended:
Ferrite Suppression Cores for signal and control cables:
Fair-Rite # 0443167251 (RLC# FCOR0000)
TDK # ZCAT3035-1330A
Steward # 28B2029-0A0
Line Filters for input power cables:
Schaffner # FN2010-1/07 (RLC# LFIL0000)
Schaffner # FN670-1.8/07
Corcom # 1 VR3
Note: Reference manufacturer’s instructions when installing a line filter.
6. Long cable runs are more susceptible to EMI pickup than short cable runs.
Therefore, keep cable runs as short as possible.
7. Switching of inductive loads produces high EMI. Use of snubbers across
inductive loads suppresses EMI.
Snubber: RLC# SNUB0000.
Electrical connections are made via screw-clamp terminals located on the
back of the meter. All conductors should conform to the meter’s voltage and
current ratings. All cabling should conform to appropriate standards of good
installation, local codes and regulations. It is recommended that the power
supplied to the meter (DC or AC) be protected by a fuse or circuit breaker.
When wiring the meter, compare the numbers embossed on the back of the
meter case against those shown in wiring drawings for proper wire position.
Strip the wire, leaving approximately 0.3" (7.5 mm) bare lead exposed (stranded
wires should be tinned with solder.) Insert the lead under the correct screwclamp terminal and tighten until the wire is secure. (Pull wire to verify
tightness.) Each terminal can accept up to one #14 AWG (2.55 mm) wire, two
#18 AWG (1.02 mm), or four #20 AWG (0.61 mm).
EMC INSTALLATION GUIDELINES
Although this meter is designed with a high degree of immunity to ElectroMagnetic Interference (EMI), proper installation and wiring methods must be
followed to ensure compatibility in each application. The type of the electrical
noise, source or coupling method into the meter may be different for various
installations. The meter becomes more immune to EMI with fewer I/O
connections. Cable length, routing, and shield termination are very important
and can mean the difference between a successful or troublesome installation.
Listed below are some EMC guidelines for successful installation in an
industrial environment.
1. The meter should be mounted in a metal enclosure, which is properly
connected to protective earth.
2. Use shielded (screened) cables for all Signal and Control inputs. The shield
(screen) pigtail connection should be made as short as possible. The
connection point for the shield depends somewhat upon the application.
Listed below are the recommended methods of connecting the shield, in order
of their effectiveness.
a. Connect the shield only at the panel where the unit is mounted to earth
ground (protective earth).
b. Connect the shield to earth ground at both ends of the cable, usually when

4.3 INPUT WIRING
CAUTION: Sensor input common is NOT isolated from user input common. In order to preserve the safety of the meter application, the sensor input
common must be suitably isolated from hazardous live earth referenced voltage; or input common must be at protective earth ground potential. If not,
hazardous voltage may be present at the User Inputs and User Input Common terminals. Appropriate considerations must then be given to the potential
of the user input common with respect to earth ground; and the common of the isolated plug-in cards with respect to input common.
If you are wiring Input B, connect signal to Terminal 6 instead of 5, and set DIP switches 4, 5, and 6 to the positions shown for 1, 2, and 3.

PROGRAMMING MODE ENTRY (PAR KEY)
PROGRAMMING MODE EXIT (DSP KEY or at   PAR KEY)
The meter normally operates in the Display Mode. No parameters can be
programmed in this mode. The Programming Mode is entered by pressing the
PAR key. If it is not accessible then it is locked by either a security code, or a
hardware lock.
Two types of programming modes are available. Quick Programming Mode
permits only certain parameters to be viewed and/or modified. All meter
functions continue to operate except the front panel keys change to Programming
Mode Operations. Quick Programming Mode is configured in Module 3. Full
Programming Mode permits all parameters to be viewed and modified. In this
mode, incoming counts may not be recognized correctly, the front panel keys
change to Programming Mode Operations and certain user input functions are
disabled. Throughout this document, Programming Mode (without Quick in
front) always refers to “Full” Programming.
The Programming Mode is exited by pressing the DSP key (from anywhere
in the Programming Mode) or the PAR key (with   displayed). This will
commit any stored parameter changes to memory and return the meter to the
Display Mode. If a parameter was just changed, the PAR key should be pressed
to store the change before pressing the DSP key. (If power loss occurs before
returning to the Display Mode, verify recent parameter changes.)
PROGRAMMING TIPS
It is recommended to start with Module 1 for counting and Module 4 for rate.
If lost or confused while programming, press the DSP key and start over. When
programming is complete, it is recommended to record the parameter
programming on the Parameter User Chart and lock out parameter programming
with a user input or lock-out code.
FACTORY SETTINGS
MODULE ENTRY (ARROW & PAR KEYS)
The Programming Menu is organized into nine modules. These modules group
together parameters that are related in function. The display will alternate between
 and the present module. The arrow keys (F1 and F2) are used to select
the desired module. The displayed module is entered by pressing the PAR key.
Factory Settings may be completely restored in Module 9. This is a good
starting point for programming problems. Most parameters can be left at their
Factory Settings without affecting basic start-up.
MODULE MENU (PAR KEY)
In the explanation of the modules, the following dual display with arrows will
appear. This is used to illustrate the display alternating between the parameter
on top and the parameter’s Factory Setting on the bottom. In most cases,
selections and values for the parameter will be listed on the right.
ALTERNATING SELECTION DISPLAY
Each module has a separate module menu (which is shown at the start of each
module discussion). The PAR key is pressed to advance to a particular parameter
to be changed, without changing the programming of preceding parameters.
After completing a module, the display will return to  . Programming may
continue by accessing additional modules.
Indicates Program Mode Alternating Display
SELECTION / VALUE ENTRY (ARROW & PAR KEYS)
Parameter
For each parameter, the display alternates between the present parameter and
the selections/value for that parameter. The arrow keys (F1 and F2) are used
to move through the selections/values for that parameter. Pressing the PAR key,
stores and activates the displayed selection/value. This also advances the meter
to the next parameter.
For numeric values, the RST key may be used to select a specific digit to be
changed. Once a digit is selected, the arrow keys are used to increment or
decrement that digit to the desired number.

SCALING CALCULATIONS
Each counter has the ability to scale an input signal to a desired display
value. This is accomplished by the counter mode (x-), scale factor (x),
scale multiplier (x) and decimal point (x). The scale factor is
calculated using:
Adds Input B rising and falling edges if User 2 is

1. It is recommended that, the scale factor be as close as possible to, but not
exceeding 1.00000. This can be accomplished by increasing or decreasing
the counter decimal point position, using the scale multiplier, or selecting a
different count mode.
2. To double the number of pulses per unit, use counter modes direction X2 or
quad X2. To increase it by four times, use counter mode quad X4. Using
these modes will decrease the maximum input frequency.
3. A scale factor greater than 1.00000 will cause Counter display rounding. In
this case, digit jumps could be caused by the internal count register rounding
the display. The precision of a counter application cannot be improved by
using a scale factor greater than 1. 00000.
4. The number of pulses per single unit must be greater than or equal to the
DDD value for the scale factor to be less than or equal to one.
5. Lowering the scale factor can be accomplished by lowering the counter
decimal position. (Example: 100 (Hundredths)/10 pulses = 10.000 lowering
to 10 (Tenths)/10 = 1.000.)

General Rules on Scaling
The number of input counts is multiplied by the scale factor and the scale
multiplier to obtain the desired process value. A scale factor of 1.00000 will
result in the display of the actual number of input counts. (Details on scaling
calculations are explained at the end of this section.)

2. Show feet with 120 pulses per foot: Scale Factor would be 1 / (120 x 1 x 1)

Parameters ()
PARAMETER MENU
EXCHANGE PARAMETER LISTS
Module 2 is the programming for rear terminal user inputs and front panel
function keys.
Three rear terminal user inputs are individually programmable to perform
specific meter control functions. While in the Display Mode, the function is
executed when the user input transitions to the active state. (Refer to the user
input specifications for active state response times.) Certain user input functions
are disabled in “full” Programming Mode.
Three front panel function F1, F2 and RST keys are also individually
programmable to perform specific meter control functions. While in the Display
Mode, the primary function is executed when the key is pressed. Holding the
F1 and F2 function keys for three seconds executes a secondary function. It is
possible to program a secondary function without a primary function. The front
panel key functions are disabled in both Programming Modes.
In most cases, if more than one user input and/or function key is programmed
for the same function, the maintained (level trigger) actions will be performed
while at least one of those user inputs or function keys are activated. The
momentary (edge trigger) actions are performed every time any of those user
inputs or function keys transition to the active state. All functions are available
to both user inputs and function keys.
Some of the user functions have a sublist of parameters. The sublist is
accessed when PAR is pressed at the listed function. The function will only be
performed for the parameters entered as . If a user input or function key is
configured for a function with a sublist, then that sublist will need to be scrolled
through each time to access the following user inputs or function keys
parameters.

If a user input is used to select the list then  is selected when the user
input is not active and and  is selected when the user input is active,
(maintained action). If a front panel key is used to select the list then the list will
toggle for each key press, (momentary action). The meter will suspend ALL
operations for approximately 1 msec. while the new values are loaded. The
display will only indicate which list is active when the list is changed or when
entering any Programming Mode.
To program the values for  and , first complete the programming
of all the parameters. Exit programming and switch to the other list. Re-enter

PARAMETER MENU
Non-linear Application – Up to 10 Scaling Points
Module 4 is the programming for the Rate parameters. For maximum input
frequency, Rate assignment should be set to  when not in use. When set to
, the remaining related parameters are not accessible. The Rate value is
shown with an annunciator of ‘’ in the Display Mode.
Note: For PAXR,  is actually  on the unit’s display and  is
actually  on the unit’s display.
Non-linear processes may utilize up to nine segments (ten scaling points) to
provide a piece-wise linear approximation representing the non-linear function.
The Rate display will be linear throughout each individual segment (i.e.
between sequential scaling points). Thus, the greater the number of segments,
the greater the conformity accuracy. Several linearization equations are
available in the software.

About Scaling Points

Each Scaling Point is specified by two programmable parameters: A desired
Rate Display Value () and a corresponding Rate Input Value ().
Scaling points are entered sequentially in ascending order of Rate Input Value.
Two scaling points must be programmed to define the upper and lower
endpoints of the first linear segment. Setting , automatically factory sets
the first scaling point to 0.0 for typical single segment, zero based applications.
When multiple segments are used, the upper scaling point for a given segment
becomes the lower scaling point for the next sequential segment. Thus, for each
additional segment used, only one additional scaling point must be programmed.
The following chart shows the Scaling Points, the corresponding Parameter
mnemonics, and the Factory Default Settings for each point.

For measuring the rate (speed) of pulses on Input A, select . For Input

The Low Update Time is the minimum amount of time between display

Calculation.) The High Update Time must be higher than the Low Update Time
and higher than the desired slowest readable speed (one divided by pulses per
second). The factory setting of 2.0, will force the display to zero for speeds
below 0.5 Hz or a pulse every 2 seconds.

Enter the corresponding Rate Input Value for the second Scaling Point by
using the arrow keys. Rate Input values for scaling points can be entered by
using the Key-in or the Applied method described below.
KEY-IN SCALING METHOD CALCULATION
Key-in Method:
If a display value versus input signal (in pulses per second) is known, then
those values can be entered into Scaling Display (x) and Scaling Input
(x). No further calculations are needed.
If only the number of pulses per ‘single’ unit (i.e. # of pulses per foot) is
known, then it can be entered as the Scaling Input value and the Scaling Display
value will be entered as the following:
Enter the Rate Input value () that corresponds to the entered Rate
Display value () by pressing the F1 or F2 keys. This value is always in
pulses per second (Hz).
Applied Method:
Apply an external rate signal to the appropriate input terminals. At the Rate
Input Value () press and hold the F1 and F2 keys at the same time. The
applied input frequency (in Hz) will appear on the display. (To verify correct
reading wait for at least the length of the Low Update Time. Then press and
hold the F1 and F2 keys at the same time again. The new value should be ±
0.1% of the previous entered value.) Press PAR to enter the displayed
frequency as the Rate Input value. To prevent the displayed value from being
entered, press DSP. This will take the meter out of Programming Mode and the
previous Rate Input value will remain.

The meter determines the input frequency by summing the number of falling
edges received during a sample period of time. The sample period begins on the
first falling edge. At this falling edge, the meter starts accumulating time
towards Low Update and High Update values. Also, the meter starts
accumulating the number of falling edges. When the time reaches the Low
Update Time value, the meter looks for one more falling edge to end the sample
period. If a falling edge occurs (before the High Update Time value is reached),
the Rate display will update to the new value and the next sample period will
start on the same edge. If the High Update Time value is reached (without
receiving a falling edge after reaching Low Update Time), then the sample
period will end but the Rate display will be forced to zero. The High Update
Time value must be greater than the Low Update Time value. Both values must
be greater than 0.0. The input frequency calculated during the sample period, is
then shown as a Rate value determined by either scaling method.

When the Rate value is above the present Maximum rate value for the
entered amount of time, the meter will capture that Rate value as the new
Maximum value. A delay time helps to avoid false captures of sudden short
spikes. Maximum detection will only function if Rate is assigned to Input A or
B. The Maximum rate value is shown with an annunciator of ‘’ in the display

If the rate of the input signal causes a display that exceeds the capacity of the

Counter C counts the incoming pulses from Counter A and B

is scaled only according to Counter C parameters. (Example:
If Counter A is set for Count X1 mode and Counter B is set for
Count X2 mode, then Counter C will increment by 1 for each
pulse received on Input A and increment by 2 for each pulse
received on Input B. Counter C scale settings are then applied
and the result is displayed.)
 
Counter C counts the incoming pulses from Counter A and B

Module 6 is the programming for the setpoint (alarms) output parameters. To have setpoint outputs, a setpoint Plug-in card needs to
be installed into the PAX (see Ordering Information). Depending on the card installed, there will be two or four setpoint outputs
available. For setpoint hardware and wiring details, refer to the bulletin shipped with the plug-in card. For maximum input frequency,
unused Setpoints should be configured for  action.
The setpoint assignment and the setpoint action determine certain setpoint feature availability. The chart below illustrates this.

SERIAL RLC PROTOCOL COMMUNICATIONS
Sending Numeric Data
RLC Communications requires the Serial Communications Type Parameter
(tYPE) be set to RLC Protocol (rLC).
Numeric data sent to the meter must be limited to the digit range shown under
transmit details in the Register Identification Chart. Leading zeros are ignored.
Negative numbers must have a minus sign. The meter ignores any decimal point
and conforms the number to the scaled resolution. (For example: the meter’s
scaled decimal point position = 0.0 and 25 is written to a register. The value of
the register is now 2.5.
SENDING SERIAL COMMANDS AND DATA TO THE METER
When sending commands to the meter, a string containing at least one
command character must be constructed. A command string consists of a
command character, a value identifier, numerical data (if writing data to the
meter) followed by a command terminator character * or $. The <CR> is also
available as a terminator when Counter C is in the SLAVE mode.
Note: Since the meter does not issue a reply to value change commands, follow
with a transmit value command for readback verification.

Command String Construction
The command string must be constructed in a specific sequence. The meter
does not respond with an error message to invalid commands. The following
procedure details construction of a command string:
1. The first characters consist of the Node Address Specifier (N) followed by a
1 or 2 character address number. The address number of the meter is
programmable. If the node address is 0, this command and the node address
itself may be omitted. For node address 1 through 9, a leading zero character
is not required. (The only exception is a numeric transmission when Counter
C is set for slave mode.) This is the only command that may be used in
conjunction with other commands.
2. After the optional address specifier, the next character is the command
character.
3. The next character is the Register ID. This identifies the register that the
command affects. The P command does not require a Register ID character.
It prints according to the selections made in print options.
4. If constructing a value change command (writing data), the numeric data is
sent next.
5. All command strings must be terminated with the string termination
characters *, $ or when Counter C is set for slave mode <CR>. The meter
does not begin processing the command string until this character is received.
See Timing Diagram figure for differences between terminating characters.

RECEIVING DATA FROM THE METER
AUTO/MANUAL MODE REGISTER (MMR) ID: U
Data is transmitted by the meter in response to either a transmit command (T),
a print block command (P) or User Function print request. The response from
the meter is either a full field transmission or an abbreviated transmission. The
meter response mode is established in Module 7.
This register sets the controlling mode for the outputs. In Auto Mode (0) the
meter controls the setpoint and analog output. In Manual Mode (1) the outputs
are defined by the registers SOR and AOR. When transferring from auto mode
to manual mode, the meter holds the last output value (until the register is
changed by a write). Each output may be independently changed to auto or
manual. In a write command string (VU), any character besides 0 or 1 in a field
will not change the corresponding output mode.

Example: VU00011* places SP4 and Analog in manual.
* These characters only appear in the last line of a block print.
The first two characters transmitted (bytes 1 and 2) are the unit address. If the
address assigned is 00, two spaces are substituted. A space (byte 3) follows the
unit address field. The next three characters (bytes 4 to 6) are the register
mnemonic. The numeric data is transmitted next.
The numeric field (bytes 7 to 18) is 12 characters long. When the requested
value exceeds eight digits for count values or five digits for rate values, an *
(used as an overflow character) replaces the space in byte 7. Byte 8 is always a
space. The remaining ten positions of this field (bytes 9 to 18) consist of a minus
sign (for negative values), a floating decimal point (if applicable), and eight
positions for the requested value. The data within bytes 9 to 18 is right-aligned
with leading spaces for any unfilled positions.
The end of the response string is terminated with <CR> (byte 19), and <LF>
(byte 20). When a block print is finished, an extra <SP> (byte 21), <CR> (byte
22), and <LF> (byte 23) are used to provide separation between the transmissions.
ANALOG OUTPUT REGISTER (AOR) ID: W
This register stores the present signal value of the analog output. The range
of values of this register is 0 to 4095, which corresponds to the analog output
range per the following chart:

*Due to the absolute accuracy rating
and resolution of the output card, the
actual output signal may differ 0.15%
FS from the table values. The output
signal corresponds to the range selected
(0-20 mA, 4-20 mA or 0-10 V).
Writing to this register (VW) while the analog output is in the Manual Mode
causes the output signal level to update immediately to the value sent. While in
the Automatic Mode, this register may be written to, but it has no effect until the
analog output is placed in the manual mode. When in the Automatic Mode, the
meter controls the analog output signal level. Reading from this register (TW)
will show the present value of the analog output signal.
Example: VW2047* will result in an output of 10.000 mA, 12.000 mA or
5.000V depending on the range selected.

SETPOINT OUTPUT REGISTER (SOR) ID: X
This register stores the states of the setpoint outputs. Reading from this
register (TX) will show the present state of all the setpoint outputs. A “0” in the
setpoint location means the output is off and a “1” means the output is on.
* These characters only appear in the last line of a block print.

In Automatic Mode, the meter controls the setpoint output state. In Manual
Mode, writing to this register (VX) will change the output state. Sending any
character besides 0 or 1 in a field or if the corresponding output was not first in
manual mode, the corresponding output value will not change. (It is not
necessary to send least significant 0s.)
Example: VX10* will result in output 1 on and output 2 off.
COUNTER C SLAVE COMMUNICATIONS
numerical characters are received, then the numeric value will be zero. The
numeric display can be used for setpoint (boundary action only) and analog
output functions. When using this display for setpoint and analog output values,
the decimal point position must match the programming entered through the
front panel. The numeric value is retained in Counter C memory until another
Numeric transmission is received.
Counter C may be programmed for , to act as a serial slave display. By
doing this, the carriage return <CR> is added as a valid command terminator
character for all serial command strings. The <CR> as a terminator may be very
useful for standard serial commands, even if Counter C is never displayed or
sent a slave message. The $ terminator should not be used in the slave mode. If
numeric values are not to be saved to memory, then send the value as a literal
transmission with <CR> terminator.
The Counter C slave display is right aligned. It has a capacity of displaying
six characters. When less than six characters are received, blank spaces will be
placed in front of the characters. If more than six characters are sent, then only
the last six are displayed. The meter has a 192 character buffer for the slave
display. If more than 192 characters are sent, the additional characters are
discarded until a terminator is received. Counter C processes numeric and literal
transmissions differently.
Recognized Numbers = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
Recognized Punctuation = period, comma, minus
Literal Transmissions
When a string that begins with # is received, the meter processes it as a Literal
transmission. In this case, any unrecognized characters will be replaced with a
space. A Literal display will replace a Numeric value in the Counter C display.
However, it will not remove a previous Numeric value from Counter C memory
or prevent the Counter C outputs from functioning with the Numeric value.
Literal transmissions are only possible when using RS232 or RS485 cards.
Numeric Transmissions
Recognized Characters = a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i, j, l, n, o, p, q, r, s, t, u,
y, z (in upper or lower case)
Recognized Numbers = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
Recognized Punctuation = period, comma, minus, blank
When a string that does not begin with #, T, V, P or R is received, the meter
processes it as a Numeric transmission. In this case, only the recognized
numbers and punctuation are displayed. All other characters in the string are
discarded. If a negative sign appears anywhere in the string the resulting number
will be negative. Only the most significant decimal point is retained. If no
26
COMMAND RESPONSE TIME
Timing Diagrams
The meter can only receive data or transmit data at any one time (half-duplex
operation). During RS232 transmissions, the meter ignores commands while
transmitting data, but instead uses RXD as a busy signal. When sending
commands and data to the meter, a delay must be imposed before sending
another command. This allows enough time for the meter to process the
command and prepare for the next command.
At the start of the time interval t1, the computer program prints or writes the
string to the com port, thus initiating a transmission. During t1, the command
characters are under transmission and at the end of this period, the command
terminating character (*, $ or slave only <CR>) is received by the meter. The
time duration of t1 is dependent on the number of characters and baud rate of
the channel.
NO REPLY FROM METER
t1 = (10 times the # of characters) / baud rate
At the start of time interval t2, the meter starts the interpretation of the
command and when complete, performs the command function. This time
interval t2 varies from 2 msec to 15 msec. If no response from the meter is
expected, the meter is ready to accept another command.
If the meter is to reply with data, the time interval t2 is controlled by the use
of the command terminating character and the Serial Transmit Delay parameter
(dELAY). The ‘*’ or ‘<CR>’ terminating character results in a response time
window of the Serial Transmit Delay time (dELAY) plus 15 msec. maximum. The
dELAY parameter should be programmed to a value that allows sufficient time for
the release of the sending driver on the RS485 bus. Terminating the command
line with “$” results in a response time window (t2) of 2 msec minimum and 15
msec maximum. The response time of this terminating character requires that
sending drivers release within 2 msec after the terminating character is
received.
At the beginning of time interval t3, the meter responds with the first
character of the reply. As with t1, the time duration of t3 is dependent on the
number of characters and baud rate of the channel. At the end of t3, the meter is
ready to receive the next command.
RESPONSE FROM METER
t3 = (10 times the # of characters) / baud rate
The maximum serial throughput of the meter is limited to the sum of the
times t1, t2 and t3.
COMMUNICATION FORMAT
Data is transferred from the meter through a serial communication channel.
In serial communications, the voltage is switched between a high and low level
at a predetermined rate (baud rate) using ASCII encoding. The receiving device
reads the voltage levels at the same intervals and then translates the switched
levels back to a character.
The voltage level conventions depend on the interface standard. The table
lists the voltage levels for each standard.

* Voltage levels at the Receiver
Data is transmitted one byte at a time with a variable idle period between
characters (0 to ∞). Each ASCII character is “framed” with a beginning start bit,
an optional parity bit and one or more ending stop bits. The data format and
baud rate must match that of other equipment in order for communication to
take place. The figures list the data formats employed by the meter.
Character Frame Figure
Parity bit
After the data bits, the parity bit is sent. The transmitter sets the parity bit to
a zero or a one, so that the total number of ones contained in the transmission
(including the parity bit) is either even or odd. This bit is used by the receiver
to detect errors that may occur to an odd number of bits in the transmission.
However, a single parity bit cannot detect errors that may occur to an even
number of bits. Given this limitation, the parity bit is often ignored by the
receiving device. The PAX meter ignores the parity bit of incoming data and
sets the parity bit to odd, even or none (mark parity) for outgoing data.
Start bit and Data bits
Data transmission always begins with the start bit. The start bit signals the
receiving device to prepare for reception of data. One bit period later, the least
significant bit of the ASCII encoded character is transmitted, followed by the
remaining data bits. The receiving device then reads each bit position as they are
transmitted.
Stop bit
The last character transmitted is the stop bit. The stop bit provides a single bit
period pause to allow the receiver to prepare to re-synchronize to the start of a
new transmission (start bit of next byte). The receiver then continuously looks
for the occurrence of the start bit. If 7 data bits and no parity is selected, then 2
stop bits are sent from the PAXI.

RESTORE FACTORY DEFAULTS
Enter the desired Display Intensity Level (0-15) by
using the arrow keys. The display will actively dim or
brighten as the levels are changed. This parameter also
appears in Quick Programming Mode when enabled.


Use the arrow keys to display   and press PAR.
The meter will display  and then returns to  .
Press DSP key to return to the Display Mode. This will
overwrite all user settings with the factory settings.
Pressing the PAR and DSP keys at the same time on power-up will load the
factory settings and display . This allows operation in the event of a
memory failure or corrupted data. Immediately press RST key and reprogram
the meter. If the meter is powered down again before pressing the RST key, the
existing dynamic data will not be overwritten.

UNIT TYPE AND VERSION
 

The only item in the PAXI meter that can be calibrated
is the Analog Output. The Count A and B values are scaled
using the parameters in Module 1, Counter C value is scaled
using Module 5 and the Rate value is scaled using Module
4. If the meter appears to be indicating incorrectly or inaccurately, refer to the
Troubleshooting section.
When Analog Out recalibration is required (generally every 2 years), it
should be performed by qualified technicians using appropriate equipment.
Calibration does not change any user programmed parameters.
Calibration may be aborted by disconnecting power to the meter before
exiting Module 9. In this case, the existing calibration settings remain in effect.
The Count Inputs A and B are factory configured for falling edge triggered
(active low) operation in single edge count modes. The Counter Operating Mode
descriptions in the Input programming section reflect this logic. If an application
is better suited to use rising edge triggered (active high) operation, the Input
Logic for Input A and/or Input B can be changed by entering Code 55.
Analog Output Card Calibration
COdE 

The meter briefly displays the unit type followed by the
current firmware version (UEr x.x), and then returns to
COdE 50. This information is also displayed during the
meter power-up sequence.

Note: Allow a 30 minute warm-up period before staring calibration.
Before starting, verify that a precision meter with an accuracy of 0.05% or
better (voltmeter for voltage output and/or current meter for current output) is
connected and ready. Then perform the following procedure:
1. Use the arrow keys to display   and press PAR.
2.  is displayed. Use the arrow keys to select  and press PAR.
3. Using the chart below, step through the five selections to be calibrated. At
each prompt, use the PAXI arrow keys to adjust the output so that the
external meter display matches the selection being calibrated. When the
external reading matches, or if the range is not being calibrated, press PAR.
LO-ACtHI-ACt
Selecting HI-ACt sets the Input A logic to rising edge triggered (active high)
operation. Be advised that all references to Input A falling edge and Input A
rising edge will be reversed for the Counter Operating Mode descriptions.
