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. PRO-LOG OPERATORS HANDBOOK PAGE 3 OF 21 ISSUE 2 AUGUST 2001 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. PRO-LOG OPERATORS HANDBOOK PAGE 4 OF 21 ISSUE 2 AUGUST 2001 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.

Zero does not function in track mode. Transducer zero must be within +/- 3% of full scale, return defective transducer to Norbar. 2. Angle display only shows zero. Check that the threshold value has not been set and enabled for angle. From the main menu select ‘SET UP’, then ‘ANGLE’, to view and change this option. 3. Battery only powers Pro-Log for a short time. Battery pack may need replacing (Part number 38876). NOTE:- Static protection must be worn at all times during this procedure. a) Switch off and remove ac power adapter. b) Remove the 4 screws from the corners of the Pro-Log front panel using 2.5 mm hex key provided. c) Pull front panel forward from the top edge, unplug battery connector (red & black leads) from CONN4. d) Remove battery pack from case. Refitting is the reversal of removal. 4. Serial data output is not communicating with other equipment. a) b) c) d) Check that control word on the Pro-Log and the equipment receiving data match. See page 15. Check that the baud rate is set to the same as the equipment receiving data. Check that the connecting lead is wired correctly at both ends, see page 15. Check if equipment receiving data requires the units of measurement inhibited or a leading character. This is applicable when interfacing to Mitutoyo equipment. NOTE:- use the ‘TEST OUTPUT’ to help in fault finding, see connect to PC software on page 4. 5. Serial data output is being overwritten. Your printer may need a line feed, enable the line feed function via the menus SET UP – CURRENT SETTINGS – SERIAL PORT. 6. Serial data is being output too fast. Your printer may be too slow. To slow down the output change the delay between lines function via the menus SET UP – CURRENT SETTINGS – SERIAL PORT. 7. Display shows ‘SMART TD NOT INITALISED’. a) Your ‘SMART’ transducer has lost its memory, return to Norbar. b) You have an unmodified ETS transducer plugged in. c) The transducer lead may have a broken connection. 8. Stored data has been lost and no time/date displayed. The back up battery has failed. Replace or return to Norbar. NOTE:- Static protection must be worn at all times during this procedure. 9. Password lost. Contact Norbar. PRO-LOG OPERATORS HANDBOOK PAGE 19 OF 21 ISSUE 2 AUGUST 2001 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. PRO-LOG OPERATORS HANDBOOK PAGE 20 OF 21 ISSUE 2 AUGUST 2001 HINTS & TIPS CONTINUED :- _________________________________________________ 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.
