1. INTRODUCTION

Stylitis-101 is designed to make the collection of technical measurements easy and safe. As such, it allows you to:

Communicate through the built-in display and keyboard.

Connect various types of industry-standard sensors like

Low-voltage bridge sensors, 4~20mA-output sensors, frequency-output sensors, anemometers, vanes, pyranometers, thermometers, etc.

Program a time interval, over which the instrument will perform mathematical operations, including minimum, maximum, average and standard deviation. (Math mode).

Program the sampling rate at 1,2,4,8,16 or 32Hz, individually for each input. (Time-series mode).

Store the input data or math results in the internal buffer or in external (removable) Compact Flash memory cards.

Use the serial interface to download buffer contents or as a substitute for the built-in display and keyboard.

The above operations are performed simultaneously without affecting the integrity of the acquired data (see block diagram,

Figure 1.

USING STYLITIS-101

The Stylitis family of data loggers can operate in several different ways, depending on your application (refer to Figure

2):

1. As a stand-alone unit. You can leave the logger unattended for weeks or months, conditioning and recording input signals. Data are compressed and stored in the internal buffer or in removable Compact Flash

cards. If the card is not new or if it has not been used only in the specific datalogger, it induces the user to press button [1] to clear the card. Cards can be replaced without interrupting the acquisition process. Using the supplied software (Opton 4) one can read the card via a

Compact Flash reader and convert compressed data to

ASCII text files organized in columns for further processing.

2. As a stand-alone unit with on-line data transfer.

Storage is done as above. Data are transferred to the PC for further processing via the serial port. Connection between the logger and the PC can be done using a serial cable, a modem (wired or wireless) or a LAN. A COM port, a modem or an Ethernet adapter, respectively, is required on the PC. The supplied Stylitis software is used for the above operations, as well as, the conversion of compressed data to ASCII text files.

3. As an on-line front-end unit. It conditions, samples and transfers signal measurements on-line to a computer for further processing and storage. The user’s program issues a command, which is used to transfer data.

Connection between the logger and the PC can be done using a serial cable, a modem (wired or wireless) or a

LAN. See 4. POWER…

STYLITIS -101 USER'S MANUAL

4. POWER MANAGEMENT

Three operating modes are available:

ENERGY SAVING MODE

This is the default operating mode. The unit is in standby mode and is awakened once per second to measure, calculate and store results. This results in long battery life, since it is active only one 50 th

of the time. The LCD is off.

Depressing a key for at least one second activates the LCD display, allowing interface with the user.

Stylitis-101 automatically reverts to standby mode if there is no user activity for about 1 minute.

CONTINUOUS OPERATION MODE

This mode holds the unit continuously activated, thus greatly reducing battery life. However it is useful if you want to continuously display an input for checking purposes.

Continuous mode is also enforced when a sampling rate faster than 1Hz is selected.

When set for continuous operation, Stylitis-101 does not automatically switch to standby mode. You will have to manually set the operation mode back to 'Energy Save'.

PC SYNC MODE

‘PC SYNC’ enables on-line operation with a computer connected to the serial port. A user software can setup the logger and read measurement data in real-time. This is done

simultaneously and does not intervene with data logging. For more information refer to application notes AN100-3 and AN100-4.

STYLITIS -101 USER'S MANUAL

13

For specifications see chapter 17.

For connection examples refer to APPENDIX B.

You can program the outputs using this sequence:

2>SETUP |

2>IN |

4>Vexc or

ExcOUT.

CAUTION

Do not apply an external voltage to the instrument outputs.

5. MEASUREMENTS

Stylitis-101 is capable of directly measuring voltage, current, resistance, frequency and events.

With suitable sensors the above electrical quantities are translated to:

Wind speed, direction and wind-turbine power curves.

Interfaces to virtually every type of anemometer and wind vane.

Temperature, humidity, pressure.

Solar radiation, rain height, water speed, water level, etc.

Sensors must provide an analog voltage, an analog current or a frequency signal in the range of 0~5kHz.

6. OUTPUTS

The programmable analog excitation outputs (V. EXC or EXC

OUT) are capable of supplying voltage up to a TOTAL of 100 milliamps or current up to 5mA each, with an accuracy of  0.2%, see APPENDIX A .

In ENERGY SAVE mode, all these outputs are pulsed to conserve battery power. They are on for about 5 milliseconds every 1 second. Thus the average current drawn from the battery (in addition to the one listed in the specifications) is

1/200 th

the total analog supply current

In CONTINUOUS mode the outputs are constantly ON.

Similarly, the counter supply outputs (+5V FIXED) can supply up to a TOTAL of 10milliAmps with an accuracy of  5%. These outputs are not pulsed. Thus, the average current drawn from the battery is the same as the total counter supply current.

14

STYLITIS -101 USER'S MANUAL

To setup vane and analog input parameters:

Select an input,

01-18.

Then use

[

 ] or [  ] to select option.

CAUTION

Do not apply a voltage exceeding the maximum permissible (  20V) on voltage inputs.

Do not apply a current exceeding the maximum permissible

(  100mA) on current inputs.

7. INPUTS

Inputs are set by selecting the IN option from the SETUP menu.

ANALOG INPUTS

The analog section has from 0 to 18 inputs, depending on the number of analog modules installed. The resolution is 12 bits.

INPUTS 1-18. Input modules, as described in APPENDIX A , define the characteristics of analog inputs. The following options however are generally available on all inputs:

NOT USED.

User selectable 1>SLOPE and 2>OFFSET values are applied on acquired data:

Scaled input = (slope x input voltage) + (offset).

Math operations are performed on scaled inputs. These include minimum, maximum, average and standard deviation.

The input can also be set to 3>UNIPolar or 3>BIPolar mode for unipolar or bipolar signals. The 4>FS (full scale) selection allows for hardware amplification of input signals from 1~1000 times. Remember, however, that the input signal MUST NOT exceed the FS selection (see

APPENDIX A ).

VANE input, for wind direction measurements (only for

low-voltage inputs). An input voltage between 0V and

5V corresponds to an angle of 0~360 degrees with a resolution of 1.4 degree (VANE type has 8 bit resolution).

Math operations include vector minimum, maximum, average and standard deviation. Vane math is NOT the

STYLITIS -101 USER'S MANUAL

See APPENDIX B for connection example.

 arithmetic average; a vector-averaging algorithm is used to ensure true calculation of angle averages.

The user can freely set the zero degree offset in degrees

(0~359). This is the actual vane zero in respect to the north. For instance, if the vane “zero” mark is placed 30  east then you enter 30 as offset; if it is placed 30  west you enter 330 (=360-30) as offset.

4. TEMPERATURE PT100 . The logger is connected to a

PT100 RTD temperature sensor as shown in APPENDIX B .

Linearization is performed internally throughout a range of -50  C~+150  C. Math is performed as above.

 ADVANCED APPLICATIONS OF ANALOG INPUTS.

BRIDGE CONNECTION

In the ‘ SLOPE & OFFSET’ menu, you can use the dash [-] to switch input type between PLAIN INPUT (A) and BRIDGE (B).

A bridge connection changes a module’s type to work as follows:

The first differential voltage channel (i.e. ANALOG1) is used for measuring the bridge output.

The second differential voltage channel (i.e. ANALOG7) is used as a sense connection for the excitation voltage to ensure that it has the correct value on the sensor’s terminals despite the length of the connecting cables.

For many bridge-type sensors it is useful to zero the output when in steady state. Use the menu keys to display the channel used as bridge input (i.e. ANALOG1). Then push the [0] key to start the Auto-Zero process. This automatically adds a small current to one bridge arm in order to balance it’s output to zero.

If you want to cancel the Auto-Zero balance action press the dash

[-] key.

16

STYLITIS -101 USER'S MANUAL

To setup anemometer and counter parameters:

Select an input,

1-6. Then, use

[  ] or [  ] to select option.

From the TYPE menu press the corresponding numeric key to change anemometer or counter input type between

Low Level AC

(SIN), Digital

(TTL) or Switch

(REED).

 COUNTING INPUTS.

The counter section has from 3 to 6 inputs, depending on the number of analog modules installed. The resolution is 16 bits

(0~65535 counts). threshold is selectable: low-level AC (SIN) or pulse (TTL) type.

Resolution is 0.5Hz.

INPUTS 1~3. These are built-in counting inputs. Input

INPUTS/OUTPUTS 4~6. Optional plug-in modules, as described in APPENDIX A make these channels either counter

inputs or state outputs.

The following options are available on all modules with counter inputs:

NOT USED .

ANEM input.

Input frequency (counts per second) is scaled with user selectable slope and offset values: Wind speed (km/h) =

(slope x input frequency) + (offset).

Math operations include minimum, maximum, average

and standard deviation.

Output (calculated) range: 0~400.0 user-defined units.

Resolution is 0.1 units. Examples of units are m/sec, km/h, etc.

The anemometer’s manufacturer gives slope and offset values. For instance, the NRG-Maximum #40, has a slope

= 0.765 m/sec/Hz, and an offset = 0.35.

STYLITIS -101 USER'S MANUAL

17

CAUTION

Do not apply a voltage exceeding the maximum permissible (  20V) on counter or digital inputs.

FREQUENCY COUNTER.

Slope and offset are fixed at 1.0 and 0.0 respectively. Math operations include minimum, maximum, average.

EVENT COUNTER.

Counts events (pulses) per averaging period (1 minute through 1hour).

 DIGITAL INPUTS.

This is a group of 3 digital inputs (state inputs 1/0 corresponding to 5V and 0V). The available options are USED and

NOT USED.

If USED is chosen they are stored as a byte with bits

2:0 representing digital inputs 3, 2, 1 respectively (bits 7:3 are always zero). Math operations include minimum and maximum.

18

STYLITIS -101 USER'S MANUAL

8. MATH PROCESSING

The analog and counting inputs selected are measured and temporarily stored once per second. Averaging intervals are selectable at 1, 2, 5, 10, 15 or 60 minutes.

Following the completion of an averaging interval, the math functions are performed and the results are stored in the internal buffer or the COMPACT FLASH card. See also, 7 . INPUTS…

Math calculations include minimum, maximum, average and

standard deviation. The standard deviation is calculated using the formula:

SDV

=

n x

2

AV

2

n n

1

, where n is the number of the samples and AV the average of the samples in the averaging interval.

Stored data format for the various input types is:

Minimum

Maximum

Average

SDV

ANEM xxx.x

FREQ xxx xxx.x xxx.xx xxxx.xxx xxx xxx.x

ANALOG VANE xxx.x xxx.x xxx.x xxx.x

ANALOG xxxx.xxx xxxx.xxx xxxx.xxx xxxx.xxx

The stored data have are marked with a time stamp for extra protection. The time stamp marks the end of the statistic interval.

9. TIME SERIES OPERATION.

Input values are sampled, scaled and stored. Math is not performed. The sampling rate for each channel is user selectable, and takes one of the following values: 1, 2, 4 ,8, 16 or

32 Hz. Stylitis-101 is automatically switched to ‘Continuous’ mode for sampling rates greater than 1.

STYLITIS -101 USER'S MANUAL

19

Although each channel separately can have its own sampling rate (up to 32Hz), for the datalogger’s proper operation, not all channels can sample simultaneously at 32

Hz.

The channels are 25: 6 counters, 18 analog channels and 1 digital (the 3 digital ones are calculated as 1, see 7.INPUTS

)

It is recommended that the sum of the frequencies of the used channels does not exceed the number 200. E.g., if all channels are used and are sampling at 8 Hz, the sum is

8x25=200.

10. DATA STORAGE/RETRIEVAL

Three types of storage media can be used, each one having its own strengths.

 INTERNAL BUFFER.

The internal buffer's size of 512Kbytes is enough for several applications. For example, to record data using one anemometer and one vane, with a 10min-averaging interval, it will suffice for

212 days. A memory card is NOT permanently required, thus reducing operating costs. Data can be retrieved two ways:

1. By placing, for a few seconds, a compatible memory card

(see below) in the slot. Data are transferred to the card and recording continues uninterrupted.

20

 During the acquisition in the internal buffer (with no card), you can put a card in the datalogger and clear it, if it is not clear, via the [1] button. Only after that data will be able to be recorded in the card.

 Then, the data which have already been recorded in the internal buffer will be transferred in the card almost immediately. That is, either the ‘CARD ERASED ok’ message will appear in the datalogger’s screen, in case you clear the card, or the message indicating its size will appear, along with an ‘ok’. Right next, the

‘TRANSFERING DATA’ message will appear. When it disappears, you can remove the card. If you do not,, the file which has been created in the card, and contains these data, will continue to be recorded.

μνήμη.

STYLITIS -101 USER'S MANUAL

2. By downloading buffer contents through the serial port, see 15. COMMUNICATION…

ADVANTAGES: Low Operational Costs.

DISADVANTAGES: Restricted size.

COMPACT FLASH MEMORY CARDS

The size of the above cards is enough for virtually all applications. (E.g. for data of one anemometer and one windvane, with a 10 minute interval, a 256 Μbytes card will last for 3737 months).

Each time a new card is inserted in the datalogger, it must be cleared. The datalogger warns you with the corresponding message and induces you to do so by pressing the [1] button.

Τhe card is recognized and initialized by inserting it into the

Stylitis-41 slot. A header is put on it including a serial number, the site name and the insertion time. Therefore, if you remove the card and re-insert the same one later, it will be recognized by the datalogger and you will not need to clear it.

By inserting the card in the slot of a Compact Flash card reader, connected to a computer USB port, data are retrieved via the

Opton 4 software.

ADVANTAGES: High capacity. Low cost. No Battery.

DISADVANTAGES: None.

STYLITIS -101 USER'S MANUAL

21

When acquisition is on: No parameter change is allowed.

When acquisition is off: Parameter change is allowed.

11. RECORDING & FILING SYSTEM

 Starting (ON) acquisition means:

1. Open a new file on a memory card (if one exists).

2. Start recording with the set parameters.

 Stopping (OFF) acquisition means:

1. Stop recording.

2. Close the file on a memory card (if one exists).

3. Clear the internal buffer.

 When using memory cards keep in mind the following tips:

1. Multiple files (acquisition sessions) can exist on the same card. If you stop the current acquisition and start a new one, a new file is created with a new number and a new start date and time.

2. Full cards are replaced without loss of data and without turning OFF the acquisition. In the meantime, data are kept in the buffer.

3. Accidentally removing and reinserting a card does not result in data loss. The system recognizes it is the same card and

(provided there is space) continues storing data in a new file.

Only the lastly inserted card is recognized by the system.

You can withdraw and reinsert the same memory card as many times as you wish. But changing the Compact Flash card means that recognition and initialization of a card is done only if the card is new and not used. Otherwise, the datalogger induces you to clear it by pressing the [1] button (refer to: 10 . DATA STORAGE… ).

22

STYLITIS -101 USER'S MANUAL

12. DATA POST PROCESSING

A card’s recorded data are transferred to a PC for processing when you insert the card to the slot of a Compact Flash card reader, connected to a computer USB. To save space, data are stored compressed.

Moreover, the data can be retrieved directly from the datalogger, via its serial port, either locally or via modem (see 15.

COMMUNICATION VIA THE SERIAL PORT ). Via Opton 4 software, you can download data either from the internal buffer or from the card (if there is one).

When you download data from the internal buffer, (with no card), with acquisition ON, after the download, Opton 4 asks you if you wish to clear it or not.

In the second case, the recording will be continued, by incrementing the size of the internal buffer’s data file. The ‘BUFFER REMAINS’ message will appear in the datalogger’s screen.

When you download data from the card, there are two options:

1. To download a previous file, by typing its number in the Opton 4’s window. In this case, if the acquisition is ON, then the recording in the current file continues uninterrupted (it is not affected by the download).

2. To download the Compact Flash (files) Directory. Afterwards, you may mark specific files from the directory to download. Again, if the acquisition is ON, then the recording in the current file continues uninterrupted (it is not affected by the download).

3. To download the most recent file (‘Most recent file’ option). In this case, if the acquisition is ON, the file closes before it is downloaded and then it is downloaded.

After it has closed, a next file opens (is created), in which the acquisition continues.

STYLITIS -101 USER'S MANUAL

23

Data records are decompressed to columns using Stylitis, a PC program that comes with the unit. Further data manipulation and processing is possible using standard available software like Excel,

Axum, etc.

‘Windrose’, an optional software suitable for Wind/

Meteorological analysis is also available. It accepts the decompressed output and produces graphs, tables, etc. in industry-standard format. Please contact Symmetron for details.

13. DATA SAFETY

To ensure correct data acquisition and protect stored data and settings the Power Supply is continuously checked. If battery voltage is found to be less than 6.25V then acquisition stops. The acquisition restarts when battery voltage rises above 6.75V. If battery voltage falls below 5.15V the system shuts down and stops responding to external stimuli.

14. PASSWORD

Stylitis-101 allows you to set a password in order to permit access to it from qualified persons only. Using the SETUP>

PASSWORD menu enter an alphanumeric word of up to 8 characters long (press [.] to enter alpha characters).

Password protection starts after the password is set and Stylitis enters Energy-Save mode. Any attempt to wake-up the data logger will result in asking for the password. If the correct password is not supplied within 4 tries, the logger will lock-up and can only be unlocked by Symmetron (either locally or remotely).

To disable the password protection you must enter 8 dashes [-] or zeroes [0].

STYLITIS -101 USER'S MANUAL

To connect to a standard PC serial port a

"straight" type cable is required, i.e. one, which connects pin 2 of one connector to pin 2 of the other, etc.

The RS-232 serial port comes as standard with Stylitis-101. It allows local or remote set-up and buffer data retrieval (it also allows Logger-to-PC on-line operation, see 4. POWER… ). The user interface, as appears on the PC screen is identical to that on the data logger.

The connector is a DB9Male with the following pin assignment:

PIN 2 Transmit

PIN 3 Receive

PIN 5 Ground

Communication speed is fixed at 9600 baud with 8 data bits, 1 stop bit and no parity bit.

For the communication of Stylitis and the PC, connect the datalogger’s serial port to a computer COM port via a DB9F to

DB9F (female-female) straight cable. Next, run the Opton 4 software, by creating a local connection via the specific COM port to communcicate with the datalogger.

You can also use a modem, by connecting it to the serial port via a NULL MODEM cable for remote communication with Stylitis

(see APPENDIX E ). Furthermore, you can use Symmetron’s Sym-

o-net, by connecting the datalogger’s serial port to the DEVICE 1 port of the Sym-o-net, via a NULL MODEM DB9F to DB9M (femalefemale) cable. In this case, create a Diameson (GPRS client) connection via Opton 4.

For further information about the Sym-o-net and its settings and capabilities, please refer to its User Guide .
