GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The Temp View DC/AC Panel Meter offers many features and performance
capabilities to suit a wide range of industrial applications. The meter employs
advanced technology for stable, drift free readout, while incorporating features
that provide flexibility now and in the future with plug-in option cards. The
plug-in card options allow the opportunity to configure the meter for present
applications, while providing easy upgrades for future needs.
The Temp View DC/AC Input Panel Meter has four voltage inputs (300
VDC max), five current inputs (2 A DC max), and three resistance inputs (10
KW max). Selectable excitation of 24 V, 2 V reference and 1.75 mA reference
provides power to transmitters and potentiometers. A 16-point input scaling
feature compensates for non-linear processes.
The meter provides a Max and Min reading memory with programmable
capture time. The capture time is used to prevent detection of false max and min
readings which may occur during start-up or unusual process events.
The signal totalizer (integrator) can be used to compute a time-input product.
This can be used to provide a readout of totalized flow, calculate service
intervals of motors and pumps, etc. The totalizer can also accumulate batch
weighing operations.
The meter has four setpoint outputs, implemented on Plug-in cards. The
Plug-in cards provide dual FORM-C relays (5 A), quad FORM-A relays (3 A)
or either quad sinking or quad sourcing open collector logic outputs. The
setpoint alarms can be configured in modes to suit a variety of control and alarm
requirements.
- High and low absolute, high and low deviation and band acting
- Balanced or unbalanced hysteresis
- On and off delay timers
- Auto reset or latching modes
- Reverse phase output and/or panel indicator
- Selection of alternate list of setpoint values
Dimensions “in inches (mm)”
Plug-in cards also facilitate bus communications. These include RS232,
RS485 and DeviceNet. Readout values and setpoint alarm values can be
controlled through the bus. Additionally, the meter has features that allow a
remote computer to directly control the outputs of the meter. With a
communication card installed, it is possible to configure the meter using a
Windows based program. The configuration data can be saved to a file for later
recall.
A linear DC output signal is available as a Plug-in card. The card provides
either 20 mA or 10 V signals. The output can be scaled independent of the input
range.
The features of the linear output cards are:
- Output tracks either input, totalizer, max or min readings
- Programmable output update times
Once the meter has 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 meter has 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.
CAUTION: Read complete
instructions prior to installation
and operation of the unit.
CAUTION: Risk of electric shock.
Note: Recommended minimum clearance (behind the panel) for mounting clip installation is 2.1”
(53.4) H x 5.5” (140) W.

* After 20 minute warm-up. Accuracy is specified in two ways: Accuracy over
an 18 to 28°C and 10 to 75% RH environment; and accuracy over a 0 to 50°C
and 0 to 85%RH (non-condensing environment). Accuracy over the 0 to
50°C range includes the temperature coefficient effect of the meter.
** The meter periodically (every 12 seconds) imposes a 500 msec delay to
compensate for internal zero drift. If the delay affects applications where step
response is critical, it can be disabled by setting the Display Update Rate to
20/sec. In this case, add a zero error of 0.1% FS over the 0 to 50°C range.
*** The internal resolution is the full range divided by 65,535 (16 bit). For
example, ±20 mA has a full range of 40 mA. 40 mA divided by 65,535 is
approximately 1 µA. The resolution of 16 bit also means that the display
value can only have a scaled maximum spread of 65,535.

OPTIONAL PLUG-IN CARDS AND ACCESSORIES
The Temp View DC/AC Panel Meter series can be fitted with up to three
optional plug-in cards. However, only one card from each function type can
be installed at a time. The function types include Setpoint Alarms,
Communications, and Analog Output. The cards can be installed initially or at
a later date. Each optional plug-in card is shipped with complete installation
and programming instructions.
SETPOINT ALARMS PLUG-IN CARDS
The Temp View DC/AC Panel Meter series has four setpoint alarm output
plug-in cards. Only one of these cards can be installed at a time. (Logic state
of the outputs can be reversed in the programming.) These plug-in cards
include:
Dual relay, FORM-C, Normally open & closed
Quad relay, FORM-A, Normally open only
Isolated quad sinking NPN open collector
Isolated quad sourcing PNP open collector
SERIAL RS485 PLUG-IN CARD
An RS485 communication port can be installed with the serial RS485 plugin card. The RS485 option allows the connection of up to 32 meters or other
devices (such as a printer, PLC, HMI, or a host computer) on a single pair of
wires not longer than 4,000 feet. The address number of each meter on the line
can be programmed from 0-99. Data from the meter(s) can be interrogated or
changed and alarm outputs can be reset by sending the proper command
string. The function keys and user inputs can be programmed to send data to
a printer or other device via serial communications.
SERIAL RS232 PLUG-IN CARD
An RS232 communication port can be installed with the serial RS232 plugin card. The RS232 is intended to allow only 2 devices, not more than 50 feet
apart, to communicate to each other (such as a printer, PLC, HMI, or host
computer). Data from the meter(s) can be interrogated or changed and alarm
outputs can be reset by sending the proper command string. The function keys
and user inputs can be programmed to send data to a printer or device via
serial communication.
DEVICENET PLUG-IN CARD
A DeviceNet communication port can be installed with the DeviceNet plugin card. DeviceNet is a high level bus protocol based upon the CAN
specifications. The protocol allows the integration of devices of different types
and manufacturers within a common communication framework.
ANALOG OUTPUT PLUG-IN CARD
Either a 0(4)-20 mA or 0-10 V retransmitted linear DC output is available
from the analog output plug-in card. The programmable output low and high
scaling can be based on the input max, min, or total display value. Reverse
acting output is possible by reversing the scaling point positions.
UNITS LABEL KIT
Each meter has a units indicator with backlighting that can be customized
using the Units Label Kit. The backlight is controlled in the programming.
PC SOFTWARE
The SFPAX is a Windows based program that allows configuration of the
PAX meter from a PC. Using SFPAX makes it easier to program the PAX
meter and allows saving the PAX program in a PC file for future use. On-line
help is available within the software. A PAX serial plug-in card is required to
program the meter using the software.
EXTERNAL CURRENT SHUNTS
To measure DC current signals greater than 2 ADC, a shunt must be used.
The APSCM010 current shunt converts a maximum 10 ADC signal into 10.0
mV. The APSCM100 current shunt converts a maximum 100 ADC signal into
100.0 mV. The continuous current through the shunt is limited to 115% of the
rating.
1.0 Installing the Meter
Installation
The PAX meets NEMA 4X/IP65 requirements for indoor use 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 and
cardboard sleeve from the unit and discard the cardboard sleeve. 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.
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.
Installation Environment
The unit should be installed in a location that does not exceed the maximum
operating temperature and provides good air circulation. Placing the unit near
devices that generate excessive heat should be avoided.
The bezel should be cleaned only 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.
Do not use tools of any kind (screwdrivers, pens, pencils, etc.) to operate the
keypad of the unit.

2.0 Setting the Jumpers
Input Range Jumper
The meter has three jumpers that must be checked and / or changed prior to
applying power. The three jumpers are: Input Range, Excitation Output Signal,
and User Input Logic. The Jumper Selections Figure is an enlargement of the
jumper area shown below.
To access the jumpers, remove the meter base from the meter case by firmly
squeezing and pulling back on the side rear finger tabs. This should lower the
latch below the case slot (which is located just in front of the finger tabs). It is
recommended to release the latch on one side, then start the other side latch.
Excitation Output Jumper
One jumper is used for voltage/ohms or current input ranges. Select the
proper input range high enough to avoid input signal overload. Only one
jumper is allowed in this area. Do not have a jumper in both the voltage and
current ranges at the same time. Avoid placing the jumper across two ranges.
One jumper is used for the excitation output range. If excitation is not being
used, it is not necessary to check or move this jumper.
User Input Logic Jumper
One jumper is used for the logic state of all user inputs. If the user inputs are
not used, it is not necessary to check or move this jumper.

3.0 Wiring the Meter
WIRING OVERVIEW
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 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 unit may be different for various
installations. The unit 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 a 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).
5 of 16
b. Connect the shield to earth ground at both ends of the cable, usually when
the noise source frequency is above 1 MHz.
c. Connect the shield to common of the unit 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 run 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 away 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 # FN610-1/07 (RLC #LFIL0000)
Schaffner # FN670-1.8/07
Corcom #1VR3
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.

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 voltages; or input common must be at protective
earth ground potential. If not, hazardous live 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 common; and the common of the
isolated plug-in cards with respect to input common.

Before connecting the wires, the User Input Logic Jumper should be verified for proper position. If not using User
Inputs, then skip this section. Only the appropriate User Input terminal has to be wired.

OVERVIEW
PROGRAMMING MENU
PROGRAMMING MODE ENTRY (PAR KEY)
The Display Mode is the normal operating mode of the meter. 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 hardware lock.
PARAMETER MODULE ENTRY (ARROW & PAR KEYS)
The Programming Menu is organized into modules. These modules group
together parameters which are related in function. The display will alternate
between Pro and the current parameter module. The arrow keys (F1 and F2)
are used to select the desired parameter module. The displayed module is
entered by pressing the PAR key.
PARAMETER MENU MOVEMENT (PAR KEY)
Each parameter module has a separate module menu (which is shown at the
start of each parameter module discussion). The PAR key is pressed to advance
to a particular parameter without changing the progamming of preceding
parameters. After completing a module, the display will return to Pro NO.
Programming may continue by accessing additional parameter modules.
SELECTION/VALUE ENTRY (ARROW & PAR KEYS)
In the parameter module, the display will alternate between the current
parameter and the selections/values for that parameter. The arrow keys (F1 and
F2) are used to move through the selections/values for that parameter. By
pressing the PAR key, the displayed selection is stored and activated. This will
also advance the meter to the next parameter.
PROGRAMMING MODE EXIT (DSP KEYor at Pro N
PROGRAMMING TIPS
It is recommand to start with Parameter Module 1. 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
Factory Settings may be completely restored in Parameter Module 9. This is
a good starting point when experiencing programming problems. Some
parameters can be left at their Factory Settings without affecting basic start-up.
These parameters are identified throughout the module explanations. Try the
Factory Settings unless a specific selection or value is known.
ALTERNATING SELECTION DISPLAY
In the explanation of the parameter modules, the following dual display with
arrows will appear. It is 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.
O PAR KEY)
The Programming Mode is exited by pressing the DSP key (from anywhere
in the Programming Mode) or the PAR key (with Pro NO 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.)

2
For linear processes, only 2 scaling points are necessary. It is recommended
that the 2 scaling points be at opposite ends of the input signal being applied.
The points do not have to be the signal limits. Display scaling will be linear
between and continue past the entered points up to the limits of the Input Signal
Jumper position. Each scaling point has a coordinate-pair of Input Value (INP)
and an associated desired Display Value (dSP).
Nonlinear - Scaling Points (Greater than 2)
For non-linear processes, up to 16 scaling points may be used to provide a
piece-wise linear approximation. (The greater the number of scaling points
used, the greater the conformity accuracy.) The Input Display will be linear
between scaling points that are sequential in program order. Each scaling point
has a coordinate-pair of Input Value (INP) and an associated desired Display
Value (dSP). Data from tables or equations, or empirical data could be used
to derive the required number of segments and data values for the coordinate
pairs. In the SFPAX software, several linearization equations are available.
SCALING STYLE
DISPLAY ROUNDING*
Ä
Å

5
Rounding selections other than one, cause the Input Display to ‘round’ to
the nearest rounding increment selected (ie. rounding of ‘5’ causes 122 to
round to 120 and 123 to round to 125). Rounding starts at the least
significant digit of the Input Display. Remaining parameter entries (scaling
point values, setpoint values, etc.) are not automatically adjusted to this
display rounding selection.
FILTER SETTING*
Ä
Å
0.0 to 25.0 seconds
The input filter setting is a time constant expressed in tenths of a second.
The filter settles to 99% of the final display value within approximately 3
time constants. This is an Adaptive Digital Filter which is designed to steady
the Input Display reading. A value of ‘0’ disables filtering.
FILTER BAND*
Ä
Å
0.0 to 25.0 display units
The digital filter will adapt to variations in the input signal. When the
variation exceeds the input filter band value, the digital filter disengages.
When the variation becomes less than the band value, the filter engages
again. This allows for a stable readout, but permits the display to settle
rapidly after a large process change. The value of the band is in display units,
independent of the Display Decimal Point position. A band setting of ‘0’
keeps the digital filter permanently engaged.
* Factory Setting can be used without affecting basic start-up.

If Input Values and corresponding Display Values are known, the Key-in

General Notes on Scaling
1. Input Values for scaling points should be confined to the limits of the Input
Range Jumper position.
2. The same Input Value should not correspond to more than one Display Value.
(Example: 20 mA can not equal 0 and 10.)
This is referred to as read out jumps (vertical scaled segments).
3. The same Display Value can correspond to more than one Input Value.
(Example: 0 mA and 20 mA can equal 10.)
This is referred to as readout dead zones (horizontal scaled segments).
4. The maximum scaled Display Value spread between range maximum and
minimum is limited to 65,535. For example using +20 mA range the
maximum +20 mA can be scaled to is 32,767 with 0 mA being 0 and Display
Rounding of 1. (Decimal points are ignored.) The other half of 65,535 is for
the lower half of the range 0 to -20 mA even if it is not used. With Display
Rounding of 2, +20 mA can be scaled for (32,767 x 2 =) 65,535 but with even
Input Display values shown.
5. For input levels beyond the first programmed Input Value, the meter extends
the Display Value by calculating the slope from the first two coordinate pairs
(INP1 / dSP1 & INP2 / dSP2). If INP1 = 4 mA and dSP1 = 0,
then 0 mA would be some negative Display Value. This could be prevented
by making INP1 = 0 mA / dSP1 = 0, INP2 = 4 mA / dSP2 = 0, with
INP3 = 20 mA / dSP3 = the desired high Display Value. The calculations
stop at the limits of the Input Range Jumper position.
6. For input levels beyond the last programmed Input Value, the meter extends
the Display Value by calculating the slope from the last two sequential
coordinate pairs. If three coordinate pair scaling points were entered, then the
Display Value calculation would be between INP2 / dSP2 & INP3 /
dSP3. The calculations stop at the limits of the Input Range Jumper
position.
5.2 Module 2 - User Input and Front Panel Function Key Parameters (2-FNC)
PARAMETER MENU
The three user inputs are individually programmable to perform specific
meter control functions. While in the Display Mode or Program Mode, the
function is executed the instant the user input transitions to the active state.
The front panel function keys are also individually programmable to perform
specific meter control functions. While in the Display Mode, the primary
function is executed the instant the key is pressed. Holding the function key for
three seconds executes a secondary function. It is possible to program a
secondary function without a primary function.
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 will be performed every time any of those
user inputs or function keys transition to the active state.
ZERO (TARE) DISPLAY
Ä
Å
Ä
Å
The Zero (Tare) Display provides a way to zero the Input Display value at
various input levels, causing future Display readings to be offset. This function
is useful in weighting applications where the container or material on the scale
should not be included in the next measurement value. When activated
(momentary action), rEsEt flashes and the Display is set to zero. At the same
time, the Display value (that was on the display before the Zero Display) is
subtracted from the Display Offset Value and is automatically stored as the new
Display Offset Value (offst). If another Zero (tare) Display is performed, the
display will again change to zero and the Display reading will shift accordingly.
Note: In the following explanations, not all selections are available for both
user inputs and front panel function keys. Alternating displays are shown
with each selection. Those selections showing both displays are available for
both. If a display is not shown, it is not available for that selection. USr-1

The Relative is a net value that includes the Display Offset Value. The Input
Display will normally show the Relative unless switched by this function.
Regardless of the display selected, all meter functions continue to operate based
on relative values. The Absolute is a gross value (based on Module 1 DSP and
INP entries) without the Display Offset Value. The Absolute display is selected
as long as the user input is activated (maintained action) or at the transition of
the function key (momentary action). When the user input is released, or the
function key is pressed again, the input display switches back to Relative
display. AbS (absolute) or rEL (relative) is momentarily displayed at transition
to indicate which display is active.

5.5 Module 5 - Totalizer (Integrator) Parameters (5-tot)
PARAMETER MENU
The Totalizer accumulates (integrates) the Input Display value using one of
two modes. The first is using a time base. This can be used to provide an
indication of total flow, usage or consumption over time. The second is through
a user input or function key programmed for Batch (one time add on demand).
This can be used for weighting applications where accumulation is based on a
completed event. If the Totalizer is not needed, its display can be locked-out and
this module can be skipped during programming.
Ä
Å
TOTALIZER DECIMAL POINT*
TOTALIZER BATCHING
The Totalizer Time Base is overridden when a user input or function key is
programmed for store batch (bAt). In this mode, when the user input or
function key is activated, the Input Display reading is one time added to the
Totalizer (batch). The Totalizer retains a running sum of each batch operation
until the Totalizer is reset. This is useful in weighting operations, when the
value to be added is not based on time but after a filling event.
TOTALIZER USING TIME BASE
Totalizer accumulates as defined by:
0
Input Display x Totalizer Scale Factor
Totalizer Time Base
For most applications, this matches the Input Display Decimal Point
(dECPt). If a different location is desired, refer to Totalizer Scale Factor.
Where:

seconds (÷ 1) hour

- minutes (÷ 60) day - days (÷ 86400)
-
For most applications, this matches the process rate the Input Display Value
represents. Example: Input Display is in gallons per minute, then use minutes
time base. If the Totalizer is being accumulated through a user input
programmed for Batch, then this parameter does not apply.
Example: The input reading is at a constant rate of 10.0 gallons per minute. The
Totalizer is used to determine how many gallons in tenths has flowed.
Because the Input Display and Totalizer are both in tenths of gallons, the
Totalizer Scale Factor is 1. With gallons per minute, the Totalizer Time Base
is minutes (60). By placing these values in the equation, the Totalizer will
accumulate every second as follows:
TOTALIZER SCALE FACTOR*
Ä
Å
10.0 x 1.000 =.1667 gallon accumulates each second
60
This results in:
10.0 gallons accumulates each minute
600.0 gallons accumulates each hour
0.000 to 65.000
For most applications, the Totalizer reflects the same decimal point location
and engineering units as the Input Display. In these cases, the Totalizer Scale
Factor is 1.000. The Totalizer Scale Factor can be used to scale the Totalizer to
a different value than the Input Display. Common possibilities are:
1. Changing decimal point location (example tenths to whole)
2. Changing engineering units (example inches to meters)
3. Changing both decimal point location and engineering units.
4. Average over a controlled time frame.
Details on calculating the scale factor are shown later.
TOTALIZER SCALE FACTOR CALCULATION EXAMPLES
1. When changing the Totalizer Decimal Point (dECPt) location from the
Input Display Decimal Point (dECPt), the required Totalizer Scale Factor is
multiplied by a power of ten.
Example: Input (dECPt)=0.0
Input (dECPt)= 0.00

2. When changing the Totalizer engineering units, the Totalizer Scale Factor
is the known conversion multiplier from Input Display units to Totalizer units.
Example: If Input Display is feet and theTotalizer needs to be in yards, the
conversion multiplier from feet to yards is 0.333. Enter 0.333 as the Totalizer
scale factor.
3. When changing both the Totalizer engineering units and Totalizer Decimal
Point then the two calculations are multiplied together. Example: Input Display
= feet in tenths (0.0) with Totalizer = whole yards (0), the scale factor would
be 0.033.
4. To obtain an average reading within a controlled time frame, the selected
Totalizer Time Base is divided by the given time period expressed in the same
timing units. Example: Average temperature per hour in 4 hour period, the scale
factor would be 0.250. To achieve a controlled time frame, connect an external
timer to a user input programmed for rtot2. The timer will control the start
(reset) and the stopping (hold) of the Totalizer.

5.9 Module 9 - Factory Service Operations (9-FCS)
PARAMETER MENU
CALIBRATION
Å
The meter has been fully calibrated at the factory.
Scaling to convert the input signal to a desired display
value is performed in Module 1. If the meter appears to be
indicating incorrectly or inaccurately, refer to
Troubleshooting before attempting to calibrate the meter.
When recalibration is required (generally every 2 years), it should only
be performed by qualified technicians using appropriate equipment.
Calibration does not change any user programmed parameters. However, it
may affect the accuracy of the input signal values previously stored using
the Apply (APLY ) Scaling Style.
Calibration may be aborted by disconnecting power to the meter before
exiting Module 9. In this case, the existing calibration settings remain in
effect.
Ä
WARNING: Calibration of this meter requires a signal source with
an accuracy of 0.01% or better and an external meter with an
accuracy of 0.005% or better. Resistance inputs require a
resistance substitution device with an accuracy of 0.01% or better.
Input Calibration
Before starting, verify that the Input Ranger Jumper is set for the range to
be calibrated. Also verify that the precision signal source is connected and
ready. Allow a 30 minute warm-up period before calibrating the meter. Then
perform the following procedure:
1. Use the arrow keys to display CodE 48 and press PAR.
2. Choose the range to be calibrated by using the arrow keys and press PAR.
(no and PAR can be chosen to exit the calibration mode without any
changes taking place.)
3. When the zero range limit appears on the display, apply the appropriate:
- Voltage ranges: dead short applied
- Current ranges: open circuit
- Resistance ranges: dead short with current source connected
4. Press PAR and ---- will appear on the display for about 10 seconds.
5. When the top range limit appears on the display, apply the appropriate:
- Voltage ranges: top range value applied (The 300 V range is the
exception which is calibrated with a 100 V signal.)
- Current ranges: top range value
- Resistance ranges: top range value (The ohms calibration requires
connection of the internal current source through a resistance
substitution device and the proper voltage range selection.)
6. Press PAR and ---- will appear on the display for about 10 seconds.
7. When no appears, press PAR twice.
8. If the meter is not field scaled, then the input display should match the value
of the input signal.
9. Repeat the above procedure for each input range to be calibrated.
Analog Output Card Calibration
Before starting, verify that the precision voltmeter (voltage output) or current
meter (current output) is connected and ready. Allow a 30 minute warm-up
period before calibrating the meter. Then perform the following procedure:
1. Use the arrow keys to display CodE 48 and press PAR.
2. Use the arrow keys to choose OUt and press PAR.
3. Using the chart below, step through the five selections to be calibrated. At
each prompt, use the PAXD arrow keys to adjust the external meter display
to match the selection being calibrated. When the external reading matches,
or if this range is not being calibrated, press PAR.
