Chapter 3 Jumper Settings and Connectors

3.1 Jumpers and Connectors

3.1.1 Setting jumpers

You can configure your panel PC to match the needs of your application by setting jumpers. A jumper is the simplest kind of electrical switch. It consists of two metal pins and a small metal clip (often protected by a plastic cover) that slides over the pins to connect them. To “close” a jumper, you connect the pins with the clip. To “open” a jumper you remove the clip. Sometimes a jumper will have three pins, labeled 1, 2, and 3. In this case, you would connect either pins 1 and 2 or pins 2 and 3.

Open Closed Closed 2-3

The jumper settings are schematically depicted in this manual as follows:

Open Closed Closed 2-3

A pair of needle-nose pliers may be helpful when working with jumpers.

If you have any doubts about the best hardware configuration for your application, contact your local distributor or sales representativebefore you make any changes.

Programming the

Watchdog Timer

The PPC-103 is equipped with a watchdog timer that resets the CPU or generates an interrupt if processing comes to a standstill for whatever reason. This feature ensures system reliability in industrial stand-alone or unmanned environments.

119 Appendix A

Appendix A Programming the Watchdog

Timer

A.1 Programming the Watchdog Timer

In order to program the watchdog timer, you must write a program which writes I/O port address 443 (hex). The output data is a value of time interval. The value range is from 01 (hex) to 3F (hex), and the related time interval is 1 sec. to 62 sec.

Data Time Interval

01 1 sec.

02 2 sec.

03 3 sec.

.

04 4 sec.

.

.

3F 63 sec.

After data entry, your program must refresh the watchdog timer by rewriting the I/O port 443 (hex) while simultaneously setting it. When you want to disable the watchdog timer, your program should read I/O port 443

(hex). The following example shows how you might program the watchdogtimer in BASIC:

10 REM Watchdog timer example program

20 OUT &H443, data REM Start and restart thewatchdog

30 GOSUB 1000 REM Your application task #1

40 OUT &H443, data REM Reset the timer

50 GOSUB 2000 REM Your application task #2

60 OUT &H443, data REM Reset the timer

70 X=INP (&H443) REM Disable the watchdog timer

B.5 Environmental Specifications

Operating temperature: 0 ~ 50° C, rated load

Storage temperature: -40 ~ 85° C

B.6 Features

Efficiency: Higher than 70% (typical) while measuring at nominal line

and rated load.

Hold up time: Longer than 16 ms at 115 VAC input and rated load,

which is measured from the end of the last charging pulse to when the main output drops down to 95% output voltage.

Protection: If the power supply fails to control itself, the built-in excess

voltage protection circuit will shut down the outputs to avoid damaging external circuits. The trip point of the crowbar circuit is around 5.7 V to

7.0 V for output voltage. The power supply will go into latch-off mode under short circuit or overload conditions. Recovery from these adverse conditions should be set as cycle AC, input OFF and ON.

Safety ground leakage current: It should be less than 100 £gA at 244

VAC input.
