GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The PAX® Analog Panel Meters offer many features and performance
capabilities to suit a wide range of industrial applications. Available in five
different models to handle various analog inputs, including DC Voltage/Current,
AC Voltage/Current, Process, Temperature, and Strain Gage Inputs. Refer to
pages 4 through 6 for the details on the specific models. 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 unit is available with a
red sunlight readable or a standard green LED. The intensity of display can be
adjusted from dark room applications up to sunlight readable, making it ideal
for viewing in bright light applications.
The 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 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 or pumps, etc. The totalizer can also accumulate batch
weighing operations.
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.
These include RS232, RS485, Modbus, DeviceNet, and Profibus-DP. Readout
values and setpoint alarm values can be controlled 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 a Windows® based program. 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. The card
provides either 20 mA or 10 V signals. The output can be scaled independent of
the input range and can track either the input, totalizer, max or min readings.
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.

*After 20 min. warm-up. Accuracy is specified in two ways: Accuracy over an 18
to 28 °C and 15 to 75% RH environment; and Accuracy over a 0 to 50 °C and 0 to
85% RH (non condensing) environment. Accuracy specified over the 0 to 50 °C
operating range includes meter tempco and ice point tracking effects. The
specification includes the A/D conversion errors, linearization conformity, and
thermocouple ice point compensation. Total system accuracy is the sum of meter
and probe errors. Accuracy may be improved by field calibrating the meter readout
at the temperature of interest.
** The accuracy over the interval -270 to -200 °C is a function of temperature,
ranging from 1 °C at -200 °C and degrading to 7 °C at -270 °C. Accuracy may be
improved by field calibrating the meter readout at the temperature of interest.

UNITS LABEL KIT (PAXLBK) - Not required for PAXT
Each meter has a units indicator with backlighting that can be customized
using the Units Label Kit. The backlight is controlled in the programming.
Each PAXT meter is shipped with °F and °C overlay labels which can be
installed into the meter’s bezel display assembly.
EXTERNAL CURRENT SHUNTS (APSCM)
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 100.0 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.
PROGRAMMING SOFTWARE
The Crimson software is a Windows based program that allows configuration
of the PAX meter from a PC. Crimson offers standard drop-down menu
commands, that make it easy to program the meter. The meter’s program can
then be saved in a PC file for future use. A PAX serial plug-in card or PAX USB
programming card is required to program the meter using the software. Crimson
can be downloaded at Redlion website.

LATCH
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.

JUmpers
The meter can have up to four jumpers that must be checked and / or changed
prior to applying power. The following Jumper Selection Figures show an
enlargement of the jumper area.
To access the jumpers, remove the meter base from the 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.
Input Range Jumper
This jumper is used to select the proper input range. The input range selected
in programming must match the jumper setting. Select a range that is high enough
to accommodate the maximum input to avoid overloads. The selection is different
for each meter. See the Jumper Selection Figure for appropriate meter.
Excitation Output Jumper
If your meter has excitation, this jumper is used to select the excitation range
for the application. If excitation is not being used, it is not necessary to check or
move this jumper.
User Input Logic Jumper
This jumper selects the logic state of all the user inputs. If the user inputs are
not used, it is not necessary to check or move this jumper.
PAXH:
Signal Jumper
This jumper is used to select the signal type. For current signals, the jumper
is installed. For voltage signals, remove the jumper from the board. (For 2 V
inputs, this removed jumper can be used in the “2 V only” location.)
Couple Jumper
This jumper is used for AC / DC couple. If AC couple, then the jumper is
removed from the board. If DC couple is used, then the jumper is installed.
PAXD Jumper Selection
Input Range 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

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, its source or the method of coupling into the unit may be different for
various installations.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. With use of the lower input ranges or signal sources with high source
impedance, the use of shielded cable may be necessary. This helps to guard
against stray AC pick-up. Attach the shield to the input common of the meter.
Line voltage monitoring and 5A CT applications do not usually require
shielding.
3. To minimize potential noise problems, power the meter from the same power
branch, or at least the same phase voltage as that of the signal source.
4. 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.
5. Signal or Control cables within an enclosure should be routed as far away as
possible from contactors, control relays, transformers, and other noisy
components.
6. 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.
7. Long cable runs are more susceptible to EMI pickup than short cable runs.
Therefore, keep cable runs as short as possible.
8. Switching of inductive loads produces high EMI. Use of snubbers across
inductive loads suppresses EMI.
Snubber: RLC#SNUB0000.

CAUTION:
1. Where possible, connect the neutral side of the signal (including current shunts) to the input common of the meter. If the input signal is sourced from
an active circuit, connect the lower impedance (usually circuit common) to the input signal common of the meter.
2. For phase-to-phase line monitoring where a neutral does not exist, or for any other signal input in which the isolation voltage rating is exceeded, an isolating potential
transformer must be used to isolate the input voltage from earth. With the transformer, the input common of the meter can then be earth referenced for safety.
3. When measuring line currents, the use of a current transformer is recommended. If using external current shunts, insert the shunt in the neutral return line. If the
isolation voltage rating is exceeded, the use of an isolating current transformer is necessary.

DEADLOAD COMPENSATION
In some cases, the combined deadload and liveload output may exceed the
range of the 24 mV input. To use this range, the output of the bridge can be offset
a small amount by applying a fixed resistor across one arm of the bridge. This
shifts the electrical output of the bridge downward to within the operating range
of the meter. A 100 K ohm fixed resistor shifts the bridge output approximately
-10 mV (350 ohm bridge, 10 V excitation).
Connect the resistor between +SIG and -SIG. Use a metal film resistor with
a low temperature coefficient of resistance.
BRIDGE COMPLETION RESISTORS
For single strain gage applications, bridge completion resistors must be
employed externally to the meter. Only use metal film resistors with a low
temperature coefficient of resistance.
Load cells and pressure transducers are normally implemented as full
resistance bridges and do not require bridge completion resistors.

DISPLAY MODE
STEP BY STEP PROGRAMMING INSTRUCTIONS:
The meter normally operates in the Display Mode. In this mode, the meter
displays can be viewed consecutively by pressing the DSP key. The annunciators
to the left of the display indicate which display is currently shown; Max Value
(MAX), Min Value (MIN), or Totalizer Value (TOT). Each of these displays can
be locked from view through programming. (See Module 3) The Input Display
Value is shown with no annunciator.
The Programming Mode is entered by pressing the PAR key. If this mode is
not accessible, then meter programming is locked by either a security code or a
hardware lock. (See Modules 2 and 3 for programming lock-out details.)
PROGRAMMING MODE
MODULE ENTRY (ARROW & PAR KEYS)
Two programming modes are available.
Full Programming Mode permits all parameters to be viewed and modified.
Upon entering this mode, the front panel keys change to Programming Mode
operations. This mode should not be entered while a process is running, since
the meter functions and User Input response may not operate properly while
in Full Programming Mode.
Quick Programming Mode permits only certain parameters to be viewed and/
or modified. When entering this mode, the front panel keys change to
Programming Mode operations, and all meter functions continue to operate
properly. Quick Programming Mode is configured in Module 3. The Display
Intensity Level “” parameter is available in the Quick Programming
Mode only when the security code is non-zero. For a description, see Module
9—Factory Service Operations. Throughout this document, Programming
Mode (without Quick in front) always refers to “Full” Programming Mode.
PROGRAMMING TIPS
The Programming Menu is organized into nine modules (See above). These
modules group together parameters that are related in function. It is
recommended to begin programming with Module 1 and proceed through each
module in sequence. Note that Modules 6 through 8 are only accessible when
the appropriate plug-in option card is installed. If lost or confused while
programming, press the DSP key to exit programming mode and start over.
When programming is complete, it is recommended to record the meter settings
on the Parameter Value Chart and lock-out parameter programming with a User
Input or lock-out code. (See Modules 2 and 3 for lock-out details.)
FACTORY SETTINGS
Factory Settings may be completely restored in Module 9. This is a good
starting point if encountering programming problems. Throughout the module
description sections which follow, the factory setting for each parameter is
shown below the parameter display. In addition, all factory settings are listed on
the Parameter Value Chart following the programming section.
ALTERNATING SELECTION DISPLAY
In the module description sections which follow, the dual display with
arrows appears for each programming parameter. This is used to illustrate the
display alternating between the parameter (top display) and the parameter's
Factory Setting (bottom display). In most cases, selections or value ranges for
the parameter will be listed on the right.
PROGRAMMING MODE ENTRY (PAR KEY)
Upon entering the Programming Mode, the display alternates between 
and the present module (initially ). The arrow keys (F1 and F2) are used
to select the desired module, which is then entered by pressing the PAR key.
PARAMETER (MODULE) MENU (PAR KEY)
Each module has a separate parameter menu. These menus are shown at the
start of each module description section which follows. 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  . From this point, programming may continue by selecting
and entering additional modules. (See MODULE ENTRY above.)
PARAMETER SELECTION ENTRY (ARROW & PAR KEYS)
For each parameter, the display alternates between the parameter and the
present selection or value for that parameter. For parameters which have a list
of selections, the arrow keys (F1 and F2) are used to sequence through the
list until the desired selection is displayed. Pressing the PAR key stores and
activates the displayed selection, and also advances the meter to the next
parameter.
NUMERICAL VALUE ENTRY (ARROW, RST & PAR KEYS)
For parameters which require a numerical value entry, the arrow keys can be
used to increment or decrement the display to the desired value. When an arrow
key is pressed and held, the display automatically scrolls up or scrolls down.
The longer the key is held, the faster the display scrolls.
The RST key can be used in combination with the arrow keys to enter large
numerical values. When the RST key is pressed along with an arrow key, the
display scrolls by 1000’s. Pressing the PAR key stores and activates the
displayed value, and also advances the meter to the next parameter.
PROGRAMMING MODE EXIT (DSP KEY or PAR KEY at 
Indicates Program Mode Alternating Display
Parameter
 


)
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.)

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 ()
and an associated desired Display Value ().

The temperature display can be corrected with an offset value. This can be
used to compensate for probe errors, errors due to variances in probe placement
or adjusting the readout to a reference thermometer. This value is automatically
updated after a Zero Display to show how far the display is offset. A value of
zero will remove the affects of offset.

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*
 


 to  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. A band setting of ‘0’
keeps the digital filter permanently engaged.
For the PAXT, the following parameters only apply to Custom
Sensor Scaling.
PAXT: ICE POINT SLOPE
 
 
 to  µV/°C
This parameter sets the slope value for ice point compensation for the
Custom TC range () only. The fixed thermocouple ranges are
automatically compensated by the meter and do not require this setting. To
calculate this slope, use µV data obtained from thermocouple manufacturers’
tables for two points between 0°C and 50°C. Place this corresponding µV and
°C information into the equation:
slope = (µV2 - µV1)/(°C2 - °C1).
Due to the nonlinear output of thermocouples, the compensation may show
a small offset error at room temperatures. This can be compensated by the offset
parameter. A value of 0 disables internal compensation when the thermocouple
is externally compensated.
* Factory Setting can be used without affecting basic start-up.
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 () and an associated desired Display
Value (). 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.

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 65,535 (32,767 x 2) 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
( /  &  / ). If  = 4 mA and  = 0, then 0 mA
would be some negative Display Value. This could be prevented by making
 = 0 mA /  = 0,  = 4 mA /  = 0, with  = 20 mA /
 = 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  /  &  / .
The calculations stop at the limits of the Input Range Jumper position.

FUNCTION KEYS
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.
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. 

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 weighing applications where the container or material on the scale
should not be included in the next measurement value. When activated
(momentary action),  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 (). If another Zero (tare) Display is performed, the
display will again change to zero and the Display reading will shift accordingly.

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.  (absolute) or  (relative) is momentarily displayed at transition
to indicate which display is active.

The meter can be programmed to automatically compensate for zero drift.
Drift may be caused by changes in the transducers or electronics, or
accumulation of material on weight systems.
Auto-zero tracking operates when the readout remains within the tracking
band for a period of time equal to the tracking delay time. When these
conditions are met, the meter re-zeroes the readout. After the re-zero operation,
the meter resets and continues to auto-zero track.
The auto-zero tracking band should be set large enough to track normal zero
drift, but small enough to not interfere with small process inputs.
For filling operations, the fill rate must exceed the auto-zero tracking rate.
This avoids false tracking at the start of the filling operation.
Fill Rate ≥ tracking band

Auto-zero tracking is disabled by setting the auto-zero tracking parameter = 0.

When the total exceeds 5 digits, the front panel annunciator TOT flashes. In
this case, the meter continues to totalize up to a 9 digit value. The high order 4

“” denotes the high order display. When the total exceeds a 9 digit value, the
Totalizer will show “E . . .” and will stop.
TOTALIZER BATCHING
The Totalizer Time Base and scale factor are overridden when a user input or
function key is programmed for store batch (). 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 weighing operations, when
the value to be added is not based on time but after a filling event.

a different value than the Input Display. Common possibilities are:
1. Changing decimal point location (example tenths to whole)
2. Average over a controlled time frame.
Details on calculating the scale factor are shown later.

Totalizer Scale Factor - 0.001 to 65.000
Totalizer Time Base - (the division factor of

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:
10.0 x 1.000 = 0.1667 gallon accumulates each second
60
This results in:
10.0 gallons accumulates each minute
600.0 gallons accumulates each hour
TOTALIZER SCALE FACTOR CALCULATION EXAMPLES
1. When changing the Totalizer Decimal Point () location from the
Input Display Decimal Point (), the required Totalizer Scale Factor is
multiplied by a power of ten.
Example:

Input () = 0.0 Input () = 0.00

2. 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 a 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 . The timer will control the start (reset)
and the stopping (hold) of the totalizer.

Command String Construction
The command string must be constructed in a specific sequence. The meter
does not respond with an error message to illegal commands. The following
procedure details construction of a command string:
1. The first 2 or 3 characters consist of the Node Address Specifier (N) followed
by a 1 or 2 character node address number. The node address number of the
meter is programmable. If the node address is 0, this command and the node
address itself may be omitted. 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 $. The meter does not begin processing the command string
until this character is received. See timing diagram figure for differences of *
and $ terminating characters.
Receiving Data
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. In this
case, the response contains only the numeric field. The meter response mode is
established in programming.

* These characters only appear in the last line of a block print.
The first two characters transmitted are the node address, unless the node address
assigned =0, in which case spaces are substituted. A space follows the node address
field. The next three characters are the register ID (Serial Mnemonic).
The numeric data is transmitted next. The numeric field is 12 characters long
(to accommodate the 10 digit totalizer), with the decimal point position floating
within the data field. Negative value have a leading minus sign. The data field
is right justified with leading spaces.
Command String Examples:
1. Node address = 17, Write 350 to Setpoint 1, response delay of 2 msec min
String: N17VE350$
2. Node address = 5, Read Input value, response delay of 50 msec min
String: N5TA*
3. Node address = 0, Reset Setpoint 4 output, response delay of 50 msec min
String: RH*
Sending Numeric Data
Numeric data sent to the meter must be limited to 5 digits (-19,999 to 99,999).
If more than 5 digits are sent, the meter accepts the last 5. 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 In this case, write a value = 25.0).
Note: Since the meter does not issue a reply to value change commands, follow
with a transmit value command for readback verification.
The end of the response string is terminated with a carriage return <CR> and
<LF>. When block print is finished, an extra <SP><CR> <LF> is used to
provide separation between the blocks.

SERIAL COMMANDS FOR PAX SOFTWARE
(CSR) Control Status Register
The Control Status Register is used to both directly control the meter’s
outputs (setpoints and analog output), and interrogate the state of the setpoint
outputs. The register is bit mapped with each bit position within the register
assigned to a particular control function. The control function are invoked by
writing to each bit position. The bit position definitions are:
bit 0: Setpoint 1 Output Status
0 = output off
1 = output on
bit 1: Setpoint 2 Output Status
0 = output off
1 = output on
bit 2: Setpoint 3 Output Status
0 = output off
1 = output on
bit 3: Setpoint 4 Output Status
0 = output off
1 = output on
bit 4: Manual Mode
0 = automatic mode
1 = manual mode
bit 5: Always stays 0, even if 1 is sent.
bit 6: Sensor Status (PAXT only)
0 = sensor normal
1 = sensor fail
bit 7: Always stays 0, even if 1 is sent.
Examples:
1. Set manual mode, turn all setpoints off:
7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0:bit location
VJ<30>* or VJ0*
ASCII 0 = 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 or <30>
V is command write, J is CSR and * is terminator.
2. Turn SP1, SP3 outputs on and SP2, SP4 outputs off:
7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0:bit location
VJ<35>* or VJ5*
ASCII 5 = 0 0 1 1 0 1 0 1 or <35>
3. Select Automatic mode:
7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0:bit location
VJ<40>* or VJ@*
ASCII @ = 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 or <40>
Note: Avoid writing values <0A> (LF), <0D> (CR), <24> ($) and <2E> (*)
to the CSR. These values are interpreted by the meter as end of command
control codes and will prematurely end the write operation.
(AOR) Analog Output Register
The Analog Output Register controls the analog output of the meter. The
manual mode must first be engaged by setting bit 4 of the Control Status
Register. The range of values of this register is 0 to 4095, which corresponds to
0 mA, 0 V and 20 mA, 10 V; respectively. The table lists correspondence of the
output signal with the register value.
Register Value
Although the register is bit mapped starting with bit 7, HEX < > characters
are sent in the command string. Bits 7 and 5 always stay a zero, even if a “1” is
sent. This allows ASCII characters to be used with terminals that may not have
extended character capabilities.
Writing a “1” to bit 4 of CSR selects manual mode. In this mode, the setpoint
outputs are defined by the values written to the bits b0, b1, b2, b3; and the
analog output is defined by the value written to the AOR. Internal control of
these outputs is then overridden.
In automatic mode, the setpoint outputs can only be reset off. Writing to the
setpoint output bits of the CSR has the same effect as a Reset command (R). The
contents of the CSR may be read to interrogate the state of the setpoint outputs
and to check the status of the temperature sensor (PAXT only).

*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
(20 mA or 10 V).
Writing to this register while the meter is in the manual mode causes the
output signal to update immediately. While in the automatic mode, this register
may be written to, but the output will not update until the meter is placed in
manual mode.
Examples:
1. Set output to full scale:
VI4095*
2. Set output to zero scale:
VI0*
Command Response Time
The meter can only receive data or transmit data at any one time (half-duplex
operation). 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 (*) is received by the meter. The time duration of t1 is
dependent on the number of characters and baud rate of the channel.
t1 = (10 * # 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 50 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. The standard command line terminating
character is ‘*’. This terminating character results in a response time window of
50 msec minimum and 100 msec maximum. This 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 50 msec
maximum. The faster 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. t3 = (10 * # of characters) /
baud rate. At the end of t3, the meter is ready to receive the next command.
The maximum serial throughput of the meter is limited to the sum of the
times t1, t2 and t3.

Communication Format
Stop bit
Start bit
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.

Character Frame Figure
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 error detection 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.
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. Since the sending and receiving devices operate at the same
transmission speed (baud rate), the data is read without timing errors.
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.
Stop bit
The last character transmitted is the stop bit. The stop bit provides a single bit

PAXP - Input Calibration
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.
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 ()
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.
Before starting, verify that the precision signal source is connected to the
correct terminals and ready. Allow a 30 minute warm-up period before
calibrating the meter.  and PAR can be chosen to exit the calibration mode
without any changes taking place.
Then perform the following procedure:
1. Use the arrow keys to display   and press PAR.
2. Choose the range to be calibrated by using the arrow keys and press PAR.
( 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 range: dead short applied
- Current range: open circuit
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 range: 10 VDC
- Current range: 20 mADC
6. Press PAR and  will appear on the display for about 10 seconds.
7. When  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.

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.
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.  and PAR
can be chosen to exit the calibration mode without any changes taking place.
Then perform the following procedure:
1. Use the arrow keys to display   and press PAR.
2. Choose the range to be calibrated by using the arrow keys and press PAR.

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.
It 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  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.
WARNING: In the PAXH, DC signals are used to calibrate the AC
ranges. Calibration of the PAXH requires a DC voltmeter with an
accuracy of 0.025% and a precision DC signal source capable of:
1. +1% of full scale, DC
2. -1% of full scale, DC
3. +100% of full scale, DC; (300 V range = +100 V calibration)
4. -100% of full scale, DC; (300 V range = -100 V calibration)
Before starting, verify the Input Range and Signal Jumpers are set for the
range to be calibrated and the Couple jumper is installed for DC. Also verify the
DC signal source is connected and ready. Allow a 30 minute warm-up period
before calibrating the meter.  and PAR can be chosen to exit the calibration
mode without any changes taking place.
Then perform the following procedure:
1. Press the arrow keys to display   and press PAR.
2. The meter displays . Use the arrow keys to select the range that matches
the Signal Jumper setting. Press PAR.
3. Apply the signal matching the meter prompt.
4. Press PAR and  will appear on the display, wait for next prompt.
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for the remaining three prompts.
6. When  appears, press PAR twice.
7. If the meter is scaled to show input signal, the Input Display should match
the value of the input signal in the Display Mode.
8. Repeat the above procedure for each range to be calibrated or to recalibrate
the same range. It is only necessary to calibrate the input ranges being used.
9. When all desired calibrations are completed, remove the external signal
source and restore original configuration and jumper settings. If AC is being
measured, continue with AC Couple Offset Calibration.
