INTRODUCTION
N2000S is a controller for servo positioners with two control relays:
one to open and other to close the valve (or damper). Moreover, it
has an analog output that can be programmed to control or retransmit
input or setpoint signals. Its universal input accepts most industry
manufactured sensors and signals.
Configuration can be entirely achieved through the keyboard, no
circuit changes are required. Selection of input and output type,
alarms configuration, and other especial functions are accessed and
programmed through the frontal panel.
It is important that you read the manual thoroughly before using the
controller. Be sure the manual corresponds to your instrument (the
number of the software version can be seen when the controller is
turned on).

Controller N2000S
To run smoothly, the controller requires some basic configuration:
• Input type (Thermocouples, Pt100, 4-20 mA, etc.).
• Control setpoint value (SP).
• Control output type (relays, 0-20 mA, pulse).
• PID parameters (or hysteretic for ON / OFF control).
Other special functions, including ramp and soak, alarm timer, digital
input, etc., can be used to achieve better performance.

I/O CHANNELS CONFIGURATION
The controller input/output channels can undertake multiple functions:
Control output, digital input, digital output, alarm output, PV and SP
retransmission. These channels are identified as I/O 1, I/O2, I/O 3,
I/O 4, I/O 5 and I/O6.
The function code of each I/O can be selected among the following
options. Only valid function codes are displayed for each I/O.
I/O 1 and I/O2 – used as ALARM outputs
Within the controller, the PROT key completes the locking function.
When PROT is OFF the user is allowed to lock and unlock the
cycles. When PROT is ON changes are not allowed: if cycles are
protected protection cannot be removed, if there aren’t cycles
protection, they cannot be made.
Two SPDT relays are available in terminals 7 to 12. They can be
assigned codes O, 1 or 2.
CONTROL OPERATION
I/O 3 and I/O4 – used as CONTROL outputs
The controller is based on the "SErt" parameter (Time of serve
excursion). This is the time the serve requires to open completely
when it is in the closed position. The output percentage calculated by
the PID (0 to 100 %) is transformed into the serve activation time to
reach a relative position.
A new output value of the PID is calculated at every 250 ms. The
"SErF" parameter defines the time in seconds for the calculation and
activation of a new output value. This parameter works as a filter, it
makes the output slower and increases the time intervals.
The minimum resolution for a new position change is given by the
parameter "SErr". If the difference between the current output value
and the new value calculated by the PID is lower than the
programmed percentage of this parameter, no activation is
performed.
If the calculated output is between 0 % or 100 % and it is maintained
for some time, the opening relay (when in 0 %) or the closing relay
(when in 100 %) will be periodically activated for a time fraction to
assure that the real position is close to the estimated position, for
mechanical problems or non-linearity of the process.

POTENTIOMETER INPUT
The potentiometer of valve position can be seen in the controller. It
must be 10 kΩ and connections must be as Fig. 07 shows. The
potentiometer reading does not power the valve position for control
effects, it only informs the operator the valve current position. The
control action happens regardless of the potentiometer.
• Resistance fail
Detects a heater broken condition, by monitoring the load current
when the control output is activated. This alarm function requires an
optional device (option 3). Details of the "resistance fail" option can
be found in a specific documentation that is sent with the product
when the option is purchased.

In order to visualize the potentiometer reading, the “Pot” parameter
must be enabled. When enabled (YES), the potentiometer position is
displayed on the prompt screen that shows the Manipulated Variable
(MV). When the potentiometer visualization is selected, the MV is not
shown anymore, and the percentage value of valve opening is shown
instead. The MV screen is the second prompt of the main cycle.
• Minimum value
It is activated when the measured value is below the value defined in
the alarm Setpoint.
ALARM CONFIGURATION
• Differential (or Band)
In this function, the parameters “SPA1”, “SPA2” represent the PV
deviation as compared to the main SP.
The controller has 2 independent alarms. They can be programmed
to operate with nine different functions, represented in Table 3.
• Open sensor
It is activated whenever the input sensor is broken or disconnected.
• Event alarm
It activates alarm(s) in specific segments of the program. See item
7.2 in this manual.

• Maximum value
It is activated when the measured values is above the value defined in
the alarm Setpoint.
In a positive deviation, the differential alarm will be triggered when
the measured value is out of the range defined in:
( SP – Deviation) and (SP + Deviation)
In a negative deviation, the differential alarm will be triggered when
the measured value is within the range defined above.

ALARM TIMER
Alarms can be programmed to have timer functions. The user can
delay alarm activation, set one pulse per activation, or make the
alarm signals operate in sequential pulses. Alarm timer is available
only for alarms 1 and 2 when “A1t1”, “A1t2”, “A2t1” and “A2t2
parameters are programmed.
Figures shown in Table 4 represent these functions, t 1 and t 2 may
vary from 0 to 6500 seconds and their combinations define the timer
mode. For normal operation, with no alarm timer activation, t 1 and t 2
must be assigned 0 (zero).
The LEDs associated to the alarms will flash whenever an alarm
condition is acknowledged, regardless the actual state of the output
relay, which may be temporarily off because of temporization.
ALARM INITIAL BLOCKING
The initial blocking option prevents the alarm from being recognized if
an alarm condition is present when the controller is turned of for the
first time. The alarm could be activated only after the occurrence of a
non-alarm condition followed by a new occurrence of an alarm
condition. The initial blocking is useful, for example, when one of the
alarms is programmed as minimum value alarm, which can trigger the
alarm at the system startup. This is not always required.
The initial blocking is disabled for the open sensor function.

PV AND SP ANALOG RETRANSMISSION
The controller has an analog output (I/O5) that can make a 0-20 mA
or 4-20 mA retransmission proportional to the PV or SP values
assigned. The analog retransmission is scalable, this means it has
max. and min. limits that define the output range, which can be
defined in parameters “SPLL” and “SPkL”.
Fig. 2 – Rear panel terminals
To obtain voltage retransmission the user must install a shunt resistor
(550 Ω max.) in the analog output terminal. The resistor value
depends on the voltage range required.
INSTALLATION RECOMMENDATIONS
KEY FUNCTIONS
F key (special function key) in the frontal panel of the controller can
perform the same function as the Digital Input I/O6 (except function
6). The key function is defined by the user in the “fFvn” parameter:
• A specific electrical power supply network should be provided for
instruments use only.
F
• Conductors of input signals must be distant from activation or
high-tension/current conductors, preferably passing through
grounded conduits.

This feature allows for the elaboration of a behavior profile for the
process. Each program is composed of a set of up to 7 segments,
named RAMP AND SOAK PROGRAM, defined by SP values and
time intervals.
When the program is defined and runs, the controller starts to
automatically generate the SP according to the program.
At the end of the program execution, the controller turns the control
output off (“rvn”= no).
Up to 7 different programs of ramp and soak can be created. The
figure below shows an example of the program:

Fig. 9 – Example of a program with a few segments
The tolerance function of the “PtoL” defines the maximum deviation
between PV and SP during the program execution. If this deviation is
exceeded, the program will be interrupted until the deviation falls
within the tolerance range (regardless of time). Programming 0 (zero)
at this prompt disables the tolerance; the profile execution will not be
halted even if PV does not follow SP (only considers time).
LINK OF PROGRAMS
It is possible to create a more complex program, with up to 49
segments, joining the seven programs. This way, at the end of a
program execution the controller immediately starts to run another
one.
When a program is created, it must be defined in the “LP" screen
whether there will be or not another program.
To make the controller run a given program or many programs
continuously, it is only necessary to link a program to itself or the last
program to the first.

EVENT ALARM
This function makes possible to program the activation of alarms in
specific segments of a program.
For such, alarms must have their function set as “rS “ and be
programmed in “ PE1“ to “ PE7“ according to Table 6. The number
programmed in the event prompt defines the alarms to be activated.

Table 6 – Event values for ramps and soaks
In order to configure a ramp and soak program:
• Tolerance values, SPs, time and event should be programmed.
• Set control mode to automatic.
• Enable program execution in “ rS “ screen.
• Start the control at the “rvn” prompt.
Before executing the program the controller waits for PV to reach the
initial setpoint (“SP0”). Should any power failure occur the controller
resumes at the beginning of the segment it was running.
AUTO TUNING OF PID PARAMETERS
During auto tune the process is controlled in ON / OFF mode at the
programmed SP. Depending on the process features, large
oscillations above and below SP may occur. Auto tune may take
several minutes to be concluded in some processes.
The recommended procedure is as it follows:
• Disable the control output at the “rvn” prompt..
• Select auto mode operation at the “Avto” prompt.
• Select a value different form zero for the proportional band.
• Disable the soft-start function
• Disable the ramp and soak function and program a new PV value
other than the present PV (close to the desired set point).

• Enable auto tuning at the “Atvn” prompt.
• Enable the control at the “rvn” screen.
During the auto tune procedure the TUNE indication will remain on.
For the control output with relays or current pulse, automatic tune
calculates the highest possible value for the PWM period. This value
can be reduced in cases of low instability. For a relay of solid state,
reduction to 1 second is recommended.
If the automatic tune does not result a satisfactory control, refer to
Table 7 for manual fine tuning procedure.

SERIAL COMMUNICATION
An optional master-slave RS485 serial communication interface is
available. It is used for communication with a supervisor machine
(master). The controller is always the slave.
PROBLEMS WITH THE CONTROLLER
Connection errors and inadequate programming are the most
common errors found during the controller operation. A final review
may avoid loss of time and damages.
The controller displays some messages to help the user identify
problems.
MESSAGE
PROBLEM
----
Open input. Without sensor or signal.

Connection problems in the Pt100 cable
Other error messages displayed by the controller can account for
errors in the input connections or type of selected input non compliant
with the sensor or signal applied to the input. If errors persist, even
after a review, contact the manufacturer. Inform also the device serial
number. To find out the serial number, press
for more than 3
seconds.
The controller also has a visual alarm (the display flashes) when the
PV value is out of the range set by spxl and spll.
