NOTE:-The suffix after the part number indicates the length of the lead in cm, thus
XXXXX.200 = 2 meters. If Transducer leads are required of a non-standard length (to the nearest
meter), the new suffix must be added to the part number when ordering.
TRANSDUCER COMPATIBILITY :- _____________________________________________
Four wire bridge, millivolt per volt (mV/V) output transducers conforming to the
specifications in the ‘Transducer Interface’ section of this manual.
Example:- A 100 N m transducer has a 2.048 mV/V output at its torque capacity. The
Pro-log excitation voltage is 5 volts (V), therefore its millivolt output (mV) is 2.048 x 5 = 10.24 mV,
so at 10% of toque capacity (10 N m) the mV output = 1.024.
Norbar transducers with the following suffix are all suitable for use with the Pro-Log.
XXXXX.IND
Transducer calibrated in mV/V.
XXXXX.INDA
Transducer calibrated in mV/V with integral angle encoder.
XXXXX.LOG
XXXXX.LOGA
Transducer calibrated with a Pro-log in units of calibration. A mV/V figure
is also supplied.
Transducer calibrated with a Pro-log in units of calibration with integral
angle encoder. A mV/V figure is also supplied.
NOTE:- ETS Transducers previously supplied with an amplifier module will need to be modified for
use with the Pro-Log.

INTRODUCTION
Pro-Log is a hand held measuring instrument for interfacing to most strain gauge type
transducers with a millivolt / volt output (mV/V). Angle or speed measurement can also be
performed simultaneously. When used with the ‘smart’ range of transducers from Norbar, simply
connecting the transducer will automatically set up the Pro-Log for use.
Pro-Log can be powered from the ac power adapter supplied, or the internal battery pack.
Battery life can be greatly increased from a minimum of 16 hours by making use of the auto
power down function, which will send the instrument into standby mode if no key has been
pressed or measurement reading taken for the specified time. The battery is constantly
monitored and indication is given on the display if it should become low or flat. When low battery
has been shown on the display there is approximately 20 minutes of use left. To recharge the
batteries simply connect the ac power adapter between the Pro-Log and a live a.c supply.
Recharging is independent of the on/off switch and indication of external power is shown by the
illumination of display back light.
Pro-Log is a menu driven system with full control via the front panel keys. The main menu
is shown below followed by an explanation of each selection option.
1 MEASURE
This option allows the user to view the measurement screen, but also gives the user
access to the ability to store details of up to 20 non-smart transducers. These stored transducers
can be edited or deleted from the store and the whole store can be printed. The last transducer
used will always be retained for quick selection. When using intelligent (smart) transducers, there
is no need to enter the transducer’s details into the Pro-Log as these are stored in the connected
transducer.
2 SET UP
This option allows you to set up:1. DATA STORE, for block storage of readings taken including block settings for transducer
used, limits, modes of operation, frequency response, auto reset hold time and first peak
sensitivity. The set up of blocks within the data store is password protected (default password =
000000).
2. LIMITS, for use when operating outside a block. Settings include Torque, Load or Pressure
limit units, target value, upper and lower set points, latching or non-latching and direction of
operation. These settings are also available for Angle and all limit settings can be saved as
defaults (used all of the time) or not (used until power is switched off).
3. ANGLE display and limit outputs can be set up to work in track (peak off), peak in either
clockwise, anticlockwise or both directions of operation. The angle can also be set up to work in
‘Torque followed by Angle’ mode by enabling and setting the threshold value. These angle
settings are independent of those within a block and can be enabled as defaults or not.

INTRODUCTION CONTINUED :- _______________________________________________
4. CURRENT SETTINGS fall into two categories, firstly those settings used by the Pro-Log
when not operating in a block. They include; frequency response, first peak sensitivity, auto reset
hold time, conversion units enabled / disabled and modes of operation enabled / disabled. All of
these settings can be enabled as defaults or not and are password protected (default password =
000000).
The second category settings cannot be set up in a block. They are system parameters
which include; language and password to be used, date / time setting and format, serial port
settings and power down time when in battery operation. All of these settings can be enabled as
defaults or not and are password protected (default password = 000000).
All of the default settings for limits, angle and current settings, as well as blocks added to
the data store can be printed if ‘print defaults’ is selected. This is not password protected.
3 DISPLAY DATA STORE
Selecting ‘Display Data Store’ allows you to view, statistically analyse and print the data
stored in blocks including options for graphical representation of the data. The data store is
divided up into 100 blocks, each block can have between 1 and 100 readings stored. Statistical
functions for each block are; mean, minimum, maximum, number of readings, sigma, Cp, Cpk
and number of readings outside limits. Those can be performed on both Torque and Angle data.
Graphs that can be viewed and printed are either histogram or trend plots. Both types of
graph can be shown between limits, between minimum and maximum readings or as a
percentage of the transducers rated capacity. All of these graphs are available for both Torque
and Angle data.
4 CONNECT TO PRO-LOG PC SOFTWARE
When selected, this menu item gives the user the ability to transfer control of the Pro-Log to
a PC. This software is not currently available and is for future release, consult Norbar Torque Tools
for further information if required.
The second item in this menu is ‘Test serial port output’ which is intended for use when
setting up communication between a Pro-Log and a PC or printer. The serial port will output the
message ‘TEST OUTPUT’ using the interface specifications set up in ‘SERIAL PORT’ of the
‘CURRENT SETTINGS’ option of ‘SET UP’.
HYPER TERMINAL INTERFACE :- _____________________________________________
Entry of information into the Pro-Log can be greatly speeded up by attaching the serial port
of the Pro-Log to the serial port of a P.C. and using the standard Hyper Terminal program on
Microsoft® Windows 95/98 disks. This gives the P.C. total control of the Pro-Log via the P.C.
keyboard with serial output data being able to be viewed and stored. The necessary cables,
connectors and instructions are available from Norbar, part no 60229.
PRO-LOG CALIBRATION AND REPAIR :- _______________________________________
Your Pro-Log has been supplied with a current certificate of calibration. To maintain the
specified accuracy it is recommended that the Pro-Log and transducers are recalibrated at least
once per year.
Re-calibration and repair should be carried out at Norbar or by a Norbar approved agent,
where all the facilities to ensure the instrument is functioning at maximum accuracy are available.
Alternatively, procedures for calibrating the Pro-Log to the specified accuracy can be
found in the Pro-Log service manual Part No. 34264.

HINTS & TIPS
Messages
Warning and Error messages are shown to help the user with audible
warnings given when necessary.
Priority of settings
Block settings have priority over current settings, however the
frequency response for specific modes of measurement is fixed at all
times.
Entering information
into set up screens
When in a set up screen, after entering one option press the down
arrow to enter the next. When all entry’s have been made, press ‘↵’.
More menu items
When the number of menu items is bigger than the screen, the
symbol ⇑ or ⇓ is shown.
Auto reset hold time
For quicker operation of auto reset modes, change AUTO RESET
HOLD TIME to 1 SECOND in the CURRENT SETTINGS menu.
Inconsistent
readings
If readings are inconsistent in first peak mode, try changing FIRST
PEAK SENSITIVITY in the CURRENT SETTINGS menu. This will
compensate for sensitive torque wrenches.
Disabling units of
measurement
If only a few units of measurement are required, the rest can be
disabled in the CURRENT SETTINGS menu. The quickest way of
setting up is to enter UNITS ENABLE/DISABLE, disable all then
enable the required units.
Disabling modes of
measurement
If only a few modes of measurement are required, the rest can be
disabled in the CURRENT SETTINGS menu. The quickest way of
setting up is to enter MODES ENABLE/DISABLE, disable all then
enable the required modes.
Changing
transducer
parameters
If any transducer’s parameter is changed i.e. re-calibration of mV/V
value, the transducer’s stored parameters must be edited as must
any blocks wanting to be used that were created for that transducer
prior to re-calibration.
Marking non-smart
transducers
Mark non-smart transducers with their stored ‘T’ number for ease of
identification.
Disabling power
down.
Set the POWER DOWN TIME to 0 in CURRENT SETTINGS.
Maximising battery
life.
Set the POWER DOWN TIME to 1 minute in CURRENT SETTINGS.
Exceptions to
entering power
down.
The Pro-Log does not enter the standby mode when showing a set
up menu.

Setting up blocks
Entering readings
into a block.
Set up all the blocks you require before going to the measure screen.
When entering readings into a block, after the first reading has been
input the block reading number will be preceded by a ‘↑’. This indicates
that the last reading can be re-input if ‘↑’ is pressed on the keypad.
The reading can be re-input after pressing ‘#’, or accepted by pressing
‘↵’. Only the previous reading taken can be re-input.
Upon filling the block a ‘BLOCK FULL’ message will be displayed
and the user will be prompted to press X , after doing this the block
reading number will show ‘↑R#↑↑↑↑’. The last reading can be re-input
if the ‘↑’ is pressed and the block can be exited when pressing ‘#’
returning the user to the measure screen.
Displaying data in
a block
Upon entry to ‘display/delete data’ in a block in the data store, the first
reading is shown. To view more readings, press the down arrow.
Creating more
blocks
The quickest way of creating blocks is to copy one that already exists
and then edit the copied block.
Setting up blocks
for non-SMART
transducers
The user should enter the measure mode, ADD the desired
transducers details and then SAVE the transducer in the store. Exit the
measure mode and enter SET UP then DATA STORE. After choosing
a block and entering the header details, the transducer can be
selected from 2.USE SAVED TRANSDUCER.
Setting up blocks
for SMART
transducers
The user should enter SET UP then DATA STORE, then after
choosing a block and entering the header details the transducer can
be selected from 1. USE SERIAL # : XXXXX.
Printing all of the
default settings
The user must enter SET UP then CURRENT SETTINGS then select
PRINT DEFAULTS. This gives the user a print out of all of the default
settings for the items in the CURRENT SETTINGS menu, the LIMITS
menu and the ANGLE menu. The printout also contains the block
number, block name and block transducer used for all of the blocks
created in the DATA STORE.
Downloading data
Downloading of data can be speeded up by changing the LINE DELAY
to 0 SECONDS. The user can get to this menu option via SET UP,
CURRENT SETTINGS, then SERIAL PORT.
