2.WIZARD for INSTALLATION and CONFIGURATION of DATA LOGGER

2.1.1

Mounting of data logger and its accessory

Select suitable location for placing data logger – pay attention to parameters of ambient environment, minimize the number of cables, avoid sources of interference

Mounting of sensors and routing of cables – pay attention to rules of theirs installation, use recommended working positions, avoid devices and distribution of power electricity

Check proper connection – before first switching on. If data logger controls other actuating devices of regulation, it is recommended to put them out of operation before configuration of data logger.

Detailed rules for mounting of data logger including different ways of connection to the computer are described in chapter

RULES for MOUNTING and CONNECTION DATA

LOGGER .

2.1.2

Basic activation of data logger

Connection of data logger to power - connect data logger to power and visually check its function (indication of power, optionally the display and keyboard)

Installation of software - install user program to the PC (see part

PROGRAM for DATA

LOGGER )

Configuration-Setting of communication configure and test the data logger connection to computer. Detailed description of Setting of communication interface is in chapter

RULES for MOUNTING and CONNECTION of DATA LOGGER .

Program enables to work simultaneously with several data loggers, that are connected to the computer in different ways.

2.1.3

Configuration of data logger – read and change the data logger configuration by means of

the SW in part Configuration – Configuration of data logger (icon i). Detailed description of data logger configuration is in

part DESCRIPTION of CONFIGURATION and MODES of

DATA LOGGER .

• set data logger Name, Date and Time in data logger ie-ms2-MS5-03 5

• assign names to each measured point and optimize the display for your requirements (signal conversions, decimal point position etc.)

• switch on each input channel needed and set record function:

- on channels where recorded value with fixed interval is required, use Continuous record with fixed interval.

- if record with fixed interval only under certain conditions is required, use Conditional record.

- if only values and time under defined conditions are required, use Sampled record

- each type of record can be limited in time

- different record modes can be combined

• if needed set alarm functions

- first define conditions for consequent actions

- assign to each alarm conditions for creation of alarm

- assign to each alarm actions to be performed in alarm creation (lightening of LED diode on data logger panel, activation of ALARM OUT output, activation of audible indication, sending SMS message, sending e-mail etc.)

- maximum four conditions and two different alarm actions on one channel can be defined; if there is a need for one channel to link several alarms (maximum four), it is enabled to use available alarms from different channels

- activity of output ALARM-OUT can be cancel by the user directly from data logger or remotely, at the same time it is possible to record it (including information on way of canceling)

- changes of state for each alarms can be recorded separately

• if there is a need during data logger operation to describe from its keyboard parts of record with predefined notes, it is enabled by means of Processes.

• if there is a need during data logger operation to change entire data logger configuration from its keyboard, it is enabled by means of storing several configuration Profiles.

• if it is required to secure data transfer and access to data logger and program functions, system of passwords and access rights can be used

2.1.4

Usual work with data logger

• reading, viewing, archiving and print/export recorded data from selected data logger or from file on disk

• on-line viewing of measured values – Display mode, enables to watch simultaneously all connected data loggers

• Display mode can be shared simultaneously on several computers in the network

RECOMMENDATIONS for OPERATION and MAINTENANCE .

3.RULES for MOUNTING and CONNECTION of DATA LOGGER

3.1. Mechanical location of data logger and the way of cable routing

Location of data logger must match the operating conditions and not allowed manipulations.

Working position of data logger:

• data logger lies on horizontal nonflammable surface

• data logger is fixed by means of mounting consoles on the wall from nonflammable material or at low current switchboard – working position is with input connectors downward

The way of mounting of consoles to data logger and mounting holes dimensions:

• data logger is fixed by means of the holder on DIN rail at low current switchboard - working position is with input connectors downward

The way of mounting the holder to data logger: ie-ms2-MS5-03 7

Mechanical drawing (without cables and connectors):

Connection terminals and connectors can be protected by magnetically fixed side covers MP027.

!

Recommendations for mounting:

do not mount data logger near sources of interference (data logger must not be mounted directly to power switchboard nor to its nearness. Also do not mount data logger near power contactors, motors, frequency converters and other sources of strong interference).

• In cable routing follow rules of standards for installation of low current distribution (EN

50174-2), especially it is necessary to pay attention to avoid electromagnetic interference intrusion to the leads, transmitters, transducers and sensors. Do not locate cabling near sources of interference.

Do not use leads in parallel with power distribution network leads

Do not use outdoor leads without corresponding protection against effects of static

electricity

if not necessary, do not connect system with other circuitry

fundamentally use shielded cables - e.g. SYKFY n pairs x 0.5, shielding at data logger side connect properly

do not create earth loops - it concerns both measuring circuits and cable shielding.

do not create hidden earth loops - do not connect cable shielding at end device side, if these device do not have terminal designed for shielding. Shielding must not be connected to outer metal parts of the device nor with other devices. Do not use shielding as a signal lead. ie-ms2-MS5-03 9

Do not use common leads for several channels

It is recommended to earth data logger at one point – there is a special terminal on power terminal. This earthing will work correctly, if system would not be grounded at other point at the same time.

3.2. Data logger interface connectors

Connectors

Each signal is connected to self-locking terminal WAGO located on the side of the case. Insert flatbladed screwdriver to rectangle terminal hole and push screwdriver towards away from you - contact is released. Connect wire to released terminal (circular hole behind the rectangular one) and close the terminal by removing the screwdriver. Connect positive pole of dc voltage of input signal to terminal IN, negative to

COM, shielding to GND.

Notice: The entire input terminal block is possible to remove from data logger by pulling it up from the connector.

Connection of leads:

Connection of transducers with current output powered by current loop

In case of connection of channels with current loop powered from data logger (inputs A0) it is possible to insert other devices (panel meters, measuring computer cards, etc.) to

! current loop. In this case it is necessary to consider, if undesirable current coupling will not cause measurement inaccuracy. All inserted devices must be galvanic isolated from other circuits. In case, it is not possible to ensure this, use galvanic isolated inputs A1G and power loops from external source. Connection of input part of the module A0 including connection to two-wire probes is described in appendix 2 . ie-ms2-MS5-03 11

Connection of thermocouple probes

For connection of thermocouples use appropriate extension cable. Continuity of material of thermocouple wire should be kept along the line up to data logger connector. Extension (compensation) cable for thermocouples type S (PtRh-Pt) is used from different materials (due cost reasons).

Marking of subminiature thermocouple connectors and wires manufactured by OMEGA (in accordance with US standard):

Type of thermocouple

Connector color + wire color - wire color

K (NiCr-Ni)

J (Fe-Co)

Yellow

Black

S (Pt10%Rh-Pt) Green

B (Pt30%Rh-Pt) White

T (Cu-CuNi) Blue

Yellow

If there are more thermocouple inputs in data logger not galvanic isolated, avoid thermocouples to be mutually connected. If hazard of current leakage exists (mostly between thermocouple welded point and surrounding metal framework), thermocouple probes with galvanic isolated weld from outer probe shield or galvanic isolated input modules should be used. In other case high measuring errors can appear. It is recommended to use shielded thermocouple cables for longer distance (depending on possible interference sources).

Connection of temperature resistance transducers

• data logger enables only two-wire connection

• choose wires of maximum diameter and minimum length. In

Appendix 6 additional errors caused by leads resistance are specified.

• measurement error caused by wire resistance can be compensated by suitable configuration of data logger

Connection of transmitters with digital output RS485 to RP input

• For connection of RS485 link for input module RS use e.g. shielded cable 2x2x0.5 mm

2

, where one pair can be used for power of transducers and second pair for link RS485.

• It is recommended to terminate the link by resistor 120 Ω at the beginning and end of the cable.

!

ATTENTION - it is recommended to connect to one RP module only devices communicating with the same communication speed and the same communication protocol!

Connection of output ALARM OUT

This output is dual:

• switching-over galvanically isolated relay contact

• voltage (galvanically connected to data logger)

The output is set from the manufacturer, that in case of selected alarm voltage appears at the output and simultaneously relay closes. It is enabled to set opposite behavior in data logger configuration

(service menu).

Activity of this output can be cancelled from data logger keyboard by the user or remotely from the

PC. It is enabled to identify by proper data logger configuration, who cancelled the alarm.

It is possible to connect to this output:

External audio indication unit - use shielded cable up to 100m from data logger. Connect terminal ALARM OUT and GND on data logger with the audio unit in corresponding polarity. Connector CINCH of audio indication unit has positive pole on its central lead.

Telephone dialer – in case of alarm telephone dialer dials specified telephone number and announces voice message. In dialer configuration first select user mode, then store phone number (or numbers) and record voice message. Then it is recommended to set delay of transmitting after activation at least 10 seconds (Function 4 1). After completing of all settings connect dialer to phone line and check the function.

• Simultaneously galvanically isolated contact relay can be used for control of other devices.

If indication controls external circuitry, it is recommended to set delay after activation at least

10 seconds to prevent possible false alerts.

3.3. Mounting and connection of output relays module MP018

Module contains 16 output relays with switching-over contact, which can be used for control of external devices (see parameters of relay and not allowed manipulations precautions). It is possible to assign any number of relays to any alarm to be closed if alarm appears. Relay are identified by numbers 1 to 16.

Each relay has three self-locking terminals (switching-over contact). Activity of relay can be checked visually on assigned LED diodes.

Mounting:

Relay module is designed for mounting to switchboard with corresponding protection.

Fix module (140x211 mm) by means of DIN rail holder MP019 or screw by means of side wall holders MP013 with four suitable screws (mounting holes are identical as for data logger with wall holders MP013, see figure above).

Connection:

Connect module to data logger with special cable MP017 (wiring diagram is specified in Appendix 10). Plug one cable end to corresponding connector on relay module, second end to data logger, connector Ext. Display & Relays (upper or lower connector half can be used, both parts are connected identically). Connect slave device on output terminals of relay. Pay attention to necessary safety (depending on the character of connected device).

Configuration:

Activate relay module function for proper operation in service menu of user SW. If data logger is delivered together with relay module, this function is activated already from the manufacturer.

Relay module layout:

ie-ms2-MS5-03 13

3.4. Mounting and connection of external terminal with display

External terminal with display is designed for visualization of measured values, alarms and for data logger controlling from point up to maximum 50 m from data logger. Its function is identical with internal built-in display of MS5D (keyboard and display work in parallel).

Mounting:

External terminal with display is designed for mounting to suitable case. It can be mounted to low-current switchboard lid where data logger itself is located or to a separate case. Cut rectangular hole 156 x 96 mm to the lid. Insert terminal unit and four screws from the front side and screw by means of metal holders from the back side.

Connection:

Tighten slightly.

Connect external terminal to data logger with special cable (wiring diagram is specified in Appendix 10). Follow identical rules for cable routing as for input signals. Plug one cable end to corresponding connector on display unit, second end to data logger, connector Ext. Display & Relays (upper or lower connector half can be used, both parts are connected identically).

Configuration:

Activate display module for proper operation in service menu of user SW. If data logger is delivered together with display module, this function is activated already from the manufacturer. Newer displays are equipped with internal audio indication. Audio indication behaves in the same way as

External audio indication unit

connected to the output ALARM OUT. This function can be enabled or disabled in service menu of the

SW.

3.5. Connection of data logger to the computer

5.2. Bookmark Communication

Here you can set:

Datalogger communication interface - you can change the type of used data logger communication interface

Change of communication interface can cause after storing data logger configuration

! you would have to physically connect via this interface and change data in

Ccommunication setting. If data logger has display with keyboard, you can change it directly on data logger. If you set on data logger interface RS485, you must assign the same interface also in SW, otherwise data logger will not communicate!

If you set Ethernet communication interface, you will be able to use data logger www pages, send warning e-mails and traps. (Condition is to have installed Ethernet

interface in data logger).

Baudrate – preset value is 115 200 Bd. If you use classic connection via RS232 (COM port), then this is the highest available speed. For USB connection you can use higher speed. For Ethernet interface cannot be changes (fixed to 115 200 Bd). For RS485 with larger networks a need to decrease the speed can appear.

RS485 network address – relevant in communication via RS485, each data logger in the network must have different address!

Datalogger responds to incoming SMS messages – if data logger is connected to GSM modem, you can get actual measured values and alarm states by sending SMS from mobile telephone to number of modem. Data logger reacts on three texts of received SMS messages: Info, Alarm, Ch1 to Ch16. For more details see chapter

Application notes

.

Datalogger sends SMS message when selected alarms are activated – if data logger is connected to GSM modem, you can assign one to four telephone numbers to each alarm states warning SMS message containing description of created alarm is sent to.

Quick and reliable SMS message delivery depends on quality of GSM network.

Features and settings of data logger Ethernet interface:

If data logger is connected to the computer via Ethernet interface, then functions of this interface can be set at the right part of the window. Some setting is necessary to perform in cooperation with your network administrator.

It is possible to set:

IP address of data logger – it must be unique address in your network, assigned by your network administrator (if you use DHCP, tick this selection, address then will be presented as 0.0.0.0.)

IP address of gateway – address of gateway or router, providing communication with other LAN segments. Address of gateway must be at the same network segment as data logger.

Mask of subnetwork – defines range of possible IP addresses in local network, e.g. 255.255.255.0

Configuration password - password for access to setting of transmitter

Size of MTU – size of packets, default is 1400 bytes. It is possible to lower it with some networks.

Sending of warning e-mails - if ticked, warning e-mails will be sent to below specified addresses

Sending of traps - if ticked, warning SNMP traps will be sent to below specified addresses

SysLog - if ticked, warning messages will be sent to below address of SysLog server

Web enabled – if ticked, www pages of data logger will be created

Soap – if ticked, actual measured values will be sent to below address of Soap server (in mode

„Display“)

Bookmark Emails:

IP address of SMTP server - If needed to send e-mails by the data logger, it is necessary to set correctly the address.Administrator of your network gives you the value of the address.

Recepient of e-mails 1-3 - e-mail addresses of recepients. E-mails will be sent to those adresses in case of selected alarms

Sender - enables to set addresses of the e-mail sender. Selection Original sender sets sender name to

[email protected] address

Send testing e-mail - sends testing e-mails to selected addresses

Bookmark SNMP:

Recepient of trap 1 – 3: IP addresses of recepients of SNMP traps.

Password for reading - setting of password for access to SNMP MIB tables.

Password for write - setting of password for write do SNMP MIB table of data logger.

Send testing trap - sends testing trap of 1/0 type to specified IP addresses.

Bookmark Web

Refresh - refresh time of automatic pages reading (update of displayed measured values). Range 10-65535 s.

Bookmark Syslog

IP address of SysLog server – IP address of server, messages are sent to.

Bookmark SOAP

IP address of SOAP server – IP address of server, on-line measured values, messages with data logger and alarms state are sent to (similar to the „Display“ mode)

Target web page – name of pages, where server has running script for incoming message processing

Source port – port number, data logger sends SOAP message from. Default set to 8080

Target port – port of server, where SOAP message is expected

Sending interval – how often data logger sends data to server

Note: MIB tables are downloadable free at the manufacturer´s www pages.

5.3. Bookmark Profile

Cyclic record – if it is not ticked, then after fulfilling of memory data record ends. Measurement and evaluation of alarms continues. If it is ticked, then after fulfilling of memory oldest data are overwriting with newest.

Alternative record times – record must not run in fixed time intervals, but it is enabled also to define up to four times in day, when measured values will be stored.

Language – language localization of fixed messages on data logger LCD. It does not concerns language localization of program

Alarm signalisation – alarms can also be signalized acoustically or by ALARM OUT output.

Signalization of alarm can be deactivated (cancelled) by the user, if it is enabled. It can be done in several ways:

- by pressing of the ENTER key on data logger

- by means of data logger menu with possibility to require PIN of user

- remotely from the computer

In case alarm which activated the indication is cancelled and appears again, indication is activated again. Canceling (deactivation) of indication simultaneously refers to internal audible indication and to ALAM OUT output. ie-ms2-MS5-03 29

- if there is a need to indicate acoustically some alarms directly in data logger, tick Internal acoustic

alarm signalisation and specify for each alarm, if alarm is indicated this way.

- If there is a need to activate ALARM OUT output, tick ALARM OUT and specify for each alarm, if alarm is indicated this way.

- changes of ALARM OUT output state can be recorded and it is enabled consequently to identify the user canceling the alarm by means of Administration of users and passwords.

- if there is a need to record changes of all alarm states, tick selection Recording of ALARM OUT

state changes and Recording of all alarms changes

- if there is a need to indicate acoustically the state of memory occupation, tick this selection

SMS phone number list – if you use sending of SMS messages after alarm creation, then enter here telephone numbers for sending messages. Enter numbers in international format with country code,

e.g. 0049... or +49....

Critical states actions – it is enabled to assign actions similar to alarms to some error states, evaluated by data logger (error of measurement on some of input channels, error in configuration of data logger, reaching of specified occupation of data memory and self test error). Do not use zero duration time of critical state for evaluation of the action. Use at least 10s delay. If this state lasts this time without interruption, selected actions will be performed.

5.4. Bookmark Ch.. Identity & Calculations

This and the following bookmark refer to data logger input channels to be switched over in left lower window corner.

Set your own identification of measured points and optional conversion of measured values at this bookmark:

• in upper part of bookmark name and range of installed input module is specified for information.

Channel name: - enter name of measured points in length of maximum 16 characters.

Physical unit (except binary inputs) – you can select from the list or write your own in length of maximum 6 characters

Description of state open/closed (in binary inputs) – user selectable strings in length 16 of characters to describe state „closed“/ „open“ (input S,SG) resp. „without voltage“/ „with voltage“

(input S1)

Number of decimal places (except binary inputs) – you can set maximum 5 digits behind decimal point.

Recalculation (except binary inputs)- measured value from input module can be recomputed by means of two-point linear transformation to other value. Default state is set to conversion 1:1 and full scale points of module input range module or value 0-0, 1-1 are used. Value can be arbitrary with the exception of state, both input values are the same.

Example: data logger with current input 4 - 20 mA is connected to temperature transducer with current output, which generates at temperature -30°C output current 4 mA and at temperature 80°C current 20 mA. Enter following values to the table:

Measured value 4.000 [ mA] will be shown as -30.0 [°C].

Measured value 20.000 [ mA] will be shown as 80.0 [°C].

Processes (except binary inputs) – allow which processes are enabled to use. See

Application notes

.

Show increments (only CTU, CTK inputs) – LCD displays always absolute, resp. converted absolute counter value. It is enabled to display in record table only increments between consequent measurements in accordance with adjusted logging interval.

Bouncing filter (only CTU, CTK inputs) – designed to avoid possible transient effects during change of logical level of the input signal. Filter parameters are specified in description of input modules.

Address of connected device, Maximum waiting etc. – setting of RP/RS input module, for more information see Appendix 3.

5.5. Bookmark Ch.. Measuring & recording

• tick Input channel is measuring and fires alarms to enable this channel for measuring,

• if there is a need record measured value, select one from three available record mode.

These modes can be combined. Binary inputs S, S1, SG enable only the third mode –

record of state changes on input.

A)

Continuous record

- if there is a need to record measured value to the instrument memory without respecting any other conditions, use this selection and select suitable logging interval.

Logging function can be limited in time both globally (i.e. Date and time from ...to) and daily (daily from...to).

If no from offered logging intervals suit you, use record in alternative daily times, defined before on bookmark Profile.

Conditional record can be linked to a simple Condition or on logical Combination of conditions

(maximum four conditions from different channels linked by operators AND and OR).

Example of conditional record in case of logical combination of conditions:

condition 3 at channel 2 condition 2 at channel 5 condition 4 at channel 1 condition 1 at channel 2 record will run, if equation is valid:

(condition 3 at channel 2 AND condition 2 at channel 5)

OR

(condition 4 at channel 1 AND condition 1 at channel 2)

Conditioned record at channel 10 runs

C) Sampled record - if there is a need to know time and measured value when certain event appeared defined by Condition or Combination of conditions, use this selection. Work with conditions is similar as in previous case. Always time and value is stored when defined state of conditions started or was terminated.

Example table with sampled record:

Record of binary channels behaves analogically as sampled record, when each change on binary inputs is stored. Value is replaced by text description, which corresponds with user configuration.

5.6. Bookmark Ch..Conditions

Condition defines certain state of measured value (exceeding of adjusted limit upwards/downwards, defined state of binary input) on specified input channel. It can have two states: valid-invalid. Up to four independent conditions at one channel can be defined. Creation of alarm states depends on state of conditions and sampled and conditional record can be controlled by them: measured value, channel state or time value condition 1 valid/invalid condition 2 valid/invalid condition 3 valid/invalid condition 4 valid/invalid conditioned data record sampled data record

ALARM 1

ALARM 2

Data logger enables to set condition depending on measured value, on time and condition, which validity is remotely controlled from the computer. Each from four conditions it is possible to switch on for evaluation.

Binary inputs has lower number of possibilities to set conditions, setting is analogical.

A) If there is a need to activate some actions dependent on Measured value, select Start of validity: Input

value

Example:

Select, if condition will be valid, if measured (Input) value is higher or lower than adjusted limit (170) and how long must this state last without interruption. Than condition becomes valid (30s, maximum 65535s).

Define further circumstances for termination of condition validity. If no validity termination is defined, condition remains permanently valid (till change of data logger configuration). You can select validity termination after value return back with hysteresis (2) OR (optionally AND) if defined time expired

(maximum 65535 s).

You can also define, how the state of the condition works if measurement error appears: ie-ms2-MS5-03 33

! measured

value

If other devices are controlled based on validity of the condition (relay outputs, sending of SMS message, audible indication etc.), always use nonzero hysteresis and nonzero time delay for creation of condition validity to avoid false alarms at transient effects of input value.

Area 2 ... measured value exceeded limit and was over this limit for required duration. After finishing adjusted condition became valid.

Area 3 ... measured value is still over limit, condition is valid

Area 4 ... measured value already dropped below limit, but nonzero hysteresis is adjusted, for finishing of condition validity measured value must drop of adjusted hysteresis value

Area 5 ... measured value dropped below limit decreased of hysteresis, condition is invalid

Switching of data logger power in different condition states:

1. if power of data logger is switched OFF in area 2, after switching ON measured value si still over limit and required delay is not over, data logger continues in testing on, as no power failure would appear.

2. if power of data logger is switched OFF in area 2, after switching ON measured value is still over limit and required delay is over already, condition becomes valid immediately

3. if power of data logger is switched OFF in area 2 and after switching ON measured value is not over limit, cycle of time testing is interrupted (similarly as in area 1).

4. if power of data logger is switched OFF in area 3 or 4, after switching ON measured value is over limit decreased of hysteresis, condition stays valid. But if measured value does not match this, condition is invalid immediately.

7. APPLICATION NOTES

7.1. Processes and how to work with

Process is the name of action recorded by data logger in time. User of data logger can enter from its keyboard to each input channel different previously preset names of processes and such way to distinguish in record, which action was performed at that time. Example can be smoke-box for meat. During one working shift different products are processed consequently (names are known before and stored in data logger).

Way of work with processes:

• In configuration of data logger write to Process label list all processes (e.g. kind of products) meant for the data logger. Maximum processes is 16 and each process name can contain maximum 16 characters

• select for each channel, which processes will be used (all-some-no). This selection simplifies choosing process (kind of product), when only relevant processes will be offered for the channel.

• at the beginning of the process (e.g. after inserting one kind of product to the meat smokebox) user finds the desired input channel and presses and holds ENTER key on the data logger keyboard. The name of the first process is displayed. By means of arrow keys preset name corresponding with the product can be selected. By pressing ENTER key again this process in data logger will be activated.

• when the operation is finished and user requires another process (e.g. another kind of product is inserted to the meat smoke-box), it is activated in similar way. Optionally no process is assigned.

• after recorded data download to the PC each time section of the record will be described with name of process, which was active in specified time

• by short pressing of ENTER key on data logger it is possible to display actually active process ie-ms2-MS5-03 45

Using of Processes is not possible with binary channels (S, SG, S1).

7.2. Configuration Profiles and how to work with

Configuration Profiles are designed for applications, where it is required data logger is portable and quick change of configuration is enabled without necessity to erase actual record and without necessity to use computer. User stores required Configuration Profiles to data logger in advance.

Maximum number of Configuration profiles is 20, minimum number is 6. Each Configuration profile has its name defined by the user (12 characters).

Profile management– enables user to work with several predefined configurations of data logger and change them.

Enable profile change from datalogger keyboard – data loggers with display enables to swap each

Configuration Profiles from data logger keyboard without necessity of connection to the computer.

If administration of profiles is active, then after reading of data logger configuration always window with list of existing profiles appears first enabling to create new, edit or remove actual profile. Before storing of edited profile or removing profile erasing of all measured data is necessary. So optional data download to the PC is useful before erasing.

7.3. SMS message and how to work with

If data logger is connected to modem with support SMS function, it is possible enable the following action:

¾ response on incoming SMS queries, when following possibilities exist: a) Info – if SMS is sent to modem with this text (both capital/lower-case letters are allowed), SMS response is received containing basic information on data logger (type, name, memory occupation, channel names, measured values and alarm states). This SMS can consist of up to four partial SMS messages depending on configuration of data logger. One long SMS can be displayed on mobile telephones with support of long SMS. b) Alarm - if SMS is sent to modem with this text (both capital/lower-case letters are allowed), SMS response is received containing basic information on data logger (type, name) and channel numbers in active alarm states. c) Ch1 - if SMS is sent to modem with this text (both capital/lower-case letters are allowed), SMS response is received containing basic information on data logger (type, name), channel 1 name, actual measured value and alarm state at channel 1. For other channels enter corresponding number

(e.g. Ch11 for channel 11).

¾ sending of SMS with alarm report - in case alarm at one of input channels appears, data logger can activate modem and send SMS message. Up to four telephone numbers are enabled to enter to common parameters for each profile. It is possible to select for each alarm at each channel to which telephone number SMS message will be sent. If alarm state of measured value appears, data logger sends SMS in above format Alarm. If critical state in data logger appears, one SMS is sent with specification of data logger type, name and names of critical states (error of configuration, measurement, selftest or memory occupation limit).

ATTENTION – always set corresponding time delay (minimum of 1 minute is recommended) and non-zero hysteresis for sending SMS. It will prevent possible frequent sending of SMS in states close to alarms.

More detailed information on support of SMS messages are in Appendix 8.

7.4. Possibilities of setting Logging interval

Logging interval is for each record mode (continuous, conditional) and for each channel individually selectable. These intervals are available: 1s, 2s, 5s, 10s, 15s, 30s, 1min, 2min, 5min, 10min, 15min, 30min,

1h, 2h, 3h, 4h, 6h, 8h, 12h, 24h. Storing is performed always in whole number multiples of above intervals.

E.g. if data logger is switched on at 5:05 and the interval is set to 1 hour, first data are stored at 6:00, next

at 7:00 etc. Additionally to above logging intervals record is enabled also in alternative daily time.

Maximum of four alternative logging times can be defined for entire data logger. For each channel is possible to select from them.

Note: Data logger measure one channel after another. Measurement of one channel takes approximately 80

ms. It means if all 16 channels are active, the total measurement time is about 1.3s. This is important with shortest logging intervals.

7.5. Identification of person, who deactivated alarm

- switch on administration of users and passwords (including encryption of communication)

- define PIN code for each user in part Users and password and switch on Alarm

confirmation with PIN

- switch on Confirmation of alarm signalisation protected by user PIN

- check if Confirmation of alarm signalisation by menu is switched ON and by enter key is switched OFF.

7.6. Way of entering PIN code from data logger keyboard

Data logger can work with two kinds of PIN codes:

• PIN codes related to particular user names and used to cancel alarm and for remote setting of conditions - maximum 16 PINs

• PIN code designed only for protection of data logger configuration against undesirable changes from data logger keyboard. This code is only one for all secured selections and has no relationship with Administration of users and passwords.

Way of entering PIN code:

- on data logger LCD is displayed requirement Enter PIN and four asterisks

- by means of arrow keys enter first (highest digit) and press Enter

- after entering the last digit and pressing button Enter validity of PIN code is checked. If valid editing of selected item is allowed

- if you make an error in entering code, press several time button Enter to get back to the beginning of entering PIN code and repeat the whole action

7.7. Sharing of Display mode on several computers together with automatic storing of data on

network

• Optional SW version is required

• On the computer connected to data logger set in operation system After Start user program of MS monitoring system.

• Run program and in menu File – Options on bookmark Folder and data files enter path to server where data will be stored.

• At bookmark Display tick Run at program start and tick below Remote www access. Note specified computer name or IP address.

• At bookmark Automatic download select day and hour of data download, optionally other selections and confirm window.

• Check in menu Configuration- Communication settings, if for the data logger automatic data download is allowed – "A" must be ticked next to data logger name (if not, tick via

Modify button).

• Restart the computer. A while after user MS program would run with Display mode.

• Go over another computer and in internet browser to the Address filed enter computer name you have noted before. You would see www pages with actual measured values. ie-ms2-MS5-03 47

7.8. How to ensure alarm report, in case of power failure

Data logger can be set in the way relay of ALARM OUT output will be closed in the state without alarm and will only open in the alarm state. Such inverse configuration can be set in service menu of the SW. Then it is sufficient to back up with batteries only suitable alarm dialer

(e.g. telephone dialer) and state without power for data logger will correspond with alarm state, which causes alarm report to the user.

7.9. Back-up of data logger configuration and its restoring

If there is a need to back up data logger configuration to the computer and have the possibility to upload the configuration to the same or another data logger, read record from data logger. Stored file on disk contains among others also complete configuration of data logger. If you use selection in menu Configuration – Reading configuration from file, you can display this configuration and store to the connected data logger. If connected data logger has different serial number from numbers stored in file, this number and some other items related to particular board will not be overwritten. The rest of configuration is stored to the data logger.

7.10. Other possibilities in data logger configuration

Some settings are not accessible to usual users and are designed for qualified user. The work is described in special Service manual. It concerns especially the possibility to change and add input modules, to configure some HW peripherals, options of configuration for SMS transfer including diagnostic tools.

7.11. What to do if data logger does not work

• Does the LED diode light on power source? – if not then there is no mains voltage or the source is terminals and connectors except power from data logger and try again. If it works connect cables one after another and try to find the failure.

• Does the LED diode light on power source? - if not replace fuse in data logger. Use the same type!

• If the LCD display is off and data logger does not communicate probably qualified repair will be necessary. faulty or the fuse is broken (then the cause can be in data logger). Check connection of power to data logger. If the fuse breaks after source plug in mains disconnect all

7.12. Self test error

If self test is not OK, data logger after switching ON reports self test error with specification of incorrect voltage (power voltage, internal battery and negative source voltage). If error in Ucc, try to measure the power voltage on data logger. It is necessary to fix the failure. If sending of SMS message in selfest error is set, use suitable delay, e.g. 30 s.

7.13. Problems with correct measurement

• Data logger measures incorrectly at some inputs:

Disconnect all inputs and let connected always only one and watch values on data logger. If correct then problem can be in cabling or in input device (incorrect connection, undesirable loops).

Typical values on display when current loop is open (4 to 20) mA with inputs A0 and A1 for

several selected input ranges:

Assignment of input value for current 4 to 20 mA in user calibration

-30 to 60

-30 to 80

-50 to 30

0 to 150

0 to 100 measured value by data logger if current loop is open

-52,5 or Error1

-57,5 or Error1

-70,0 or Error1

-37,5 or Error1

-25,0 or Error1

Message Error2 with current loops indicates exceeding of current 20 mA

Data logger works, as some input channel does not exist, although it is installed:

Check if input channel is switched ON or optionally if input module is installed.

Data logger time from time and totally irregularly indicates totally incorrect value:

Failure shows nonsensical value in record, on the display and short alarm activation. Most probably it is caused by electromagnetic interference. Effect is typical if correct rules for installation are not followed. It is necessary to check cabling, to change cable routing, to try to reduce interference etc. Most often this effect appears with current loops powered from A0 module, which are connected to transducers of resistance sensor to current, if resistance sensor shielding is not connected properly or shielding is perforated to ground of other devices. Adjust suitable alarm delay t

ON

(see setting conditions) in risky installations. Also faulty probe or transducer can cause such troubles.

Audio alarm indication of data logger does not work:

Check if Audio alarm indication is switched ON. Also check if alarm delay t

ON

(see setting conditions) is adjusted and wait for this time. Check if alarm in audio indication is not deactivated by pressing ENTER key (try to active other alarm, to activate the audio indication). Also check the connection of external audio indication unit.

7.14. Problems in communication with computer

• For trouble free communication with computer use only one from communication interfaces of data logger (RS232, USB, RS485 or Ethernet) and the rest let not connected!

Data logger does not communicate (via RS232 with delivered cable):

Try to find if problem is in data logger or in computer. Always use delivered cable RS232

(simplified communication). Most frequent problems can be: too high communication speed

(19200 Bd would work always), device conflict, e.g. COM1 port interruption is used by internal modem, which is at COM3 port (same is valid for relation COM2-COM4), or network card is set to same interruption, as desired COM port (or other device). Also some resident programs can cause problems.

Data logger communicates via RS232, but does not communicate via RS485:

First check cabling, correct connection of link polarity, correction of connection of converter

RS232/RS485 including jumper and connection of its power. If several data loggers are connected, let only one in the network (disconnect others by unplugging connector) and try communication. If correct, the cause can be address conflict, improper speed of

communication or short circuit of the link. If using converter RS232/RS485 - type E06D or

AUT485, always set communication device to selection S with automatic direction switching.

Communication could not work with each type of converter RS232/RS485. If user uses other type than recommended, problem can be in its dynamic parameters. Also try other communication port and recommended type of converter.

• Data logger does not communicate via Ethernet

Set communication interface RS232 from the data logger display, disconnect Ethernet cable from data logger and connect data logger to the computer via RS232 cable. If communication works properly, proceed in accordance with Appendix 9. If does not work probably service check will be necessary. ie-ms2-MS5-03 49

8.RECOMMENDATION FOR OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE

8.1.1 Operation of data logger in various applications

Before application it is necessary to consider if data logger is suitable for required purpose, adjust optimal configuration and create instructions for its periodical metrological and functional verifications.

Unsuitable and hazard applications: data logger is not design for applications, where failure of operation could cause endanger of health or function of other device supporting life functions. In applications, where failure of data logger could cause loss on property, it is recommended to amend system of independent indication device to monitor this state and avoid damages. It concerns especially control and indication outputs of data loggers. In critical applications it is suitable to power data logger from backed-up sources (UPS) dimensioned to required operation without mains power. Furthermore critical can be data logger connection to power itself. It is not suitable to power both data logger and

critical device – e.g. freezing box – to one fuse. If fuse is disconnected, then neither data logger nor

monitored device is working.

Location of temperature transducers: locate them to places with sufficient airflow and where most critical point is supposed (in accordance with application requirements). Transducer must be located sufficiently inside of measured room or be connected to, to avoid thermal influence of leading wires to measured temperature. In monitoring of temperature in air-conditioned room, do not locate transducer

to direct flow of air conditioning unit. E.g. at large chamber refrigerators can be temperature profile very inhomogeneous, deviations can reach up to 10 °C.

Location of humidity transducers: in measuring of humidity in refrigeration boxes without additional humidity stabilization, strong changes of humidity can occur in switching on/off the refrigeration (up to tens of % RH) even though mean RH value is stable.

Optimum data logger operation: it depends on particular application. Important is the setting of logging and alarm parameters. It is necessary to take into account the memory capacity of data logger and frequency of data transfer to the computer. Select logging mode depending on preferable way of data management. If newest data are preferred select cyclic mode, if oldest data are preferred, select noncyclic mode. Further more consider if data will be erased from data logger after data transfer to the

8.1.2

computer. In case data will be erased, then a long-term record is not stored in one file and it is not possible to identify eventual failures. In case memory is not erased, then data transfer duration to computer can be a problem. If there are problems with data logger, it is recommended not to erase data.

Alarm delay and hysteresis settings are very important.

Recommendation for metrological verification

Metrological verification is performed in accordance with application requirements specified by the user. One year the manufacturer recommends periodical verification.

Notice: accuracy of data logger input means accuracy of input itself without probes.

In verification of thermocouple inputs it is necessary to take into account that cold end compensation is perform inside of data logger, where temperature is mostly slightly higher than ambient temperature on the outer connector. Best way is verification together with connected thermocouple.

8.1.3 Recommendation for periodical verification

Manufacturer recommends periodical verification of the system yearly. Interval and range of verification depends on the application. In stationary installations following verification is recommended:

1. Metrological verification

2. Regular overhaul in intervals accordingly to corresponding standards

3. Evaluation of all problems from the last verification

4. Visual inspection of data logger

5. Functional verification of data logger (functions used in application):

A) verification of data transfer to computer

B) verification of alarms – change input value to activate alarm and check on display and also in external audio indication (if used)

C) evaluate in data logger if relay contacts live

D) evaluate internal battery – third value in self test must be at least 2.6 V

8.1.4

6. Verification of cabling – check the connection quality of cables, check visually entire cable length for damage and the route of cables for interference, especially whether some parallel power wires are not near.

7. Visual inspection of transducers for possible interference or water penetration.

Make a verification protocol.

Recommendation for service

Service of data logger is made at manufacturer or authorized partner. There is no service

! allowed without authorization from manufacturer. Unauthorized encroachment leads to loss of all warranty. The most common damage due unauthorized manipulation with

input modules is damage of the motherboard, when modules are connected in improper

way.

8.1.5 Placing out of operation after end of device life

Disconnect the power cord and return data logger to the supplier or specialized company. Notice: data

logger contains back-up Lithium battery on motherboard and on each counter input module (CTU, CTK)

ie-ms2-MS5-03 51

TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION AND PARAMETERS OF DATA LOGGER

9.1 Circuit concept of data logger

Data logger is designed as autonomous complex controlled by its own microprocessor, which fully works if power voltage is connected. If power voltage is not present, data logger does not work, but recorded data and internal time are saved. Exception is with counter inputs CTU and CTK, which internal counter works even in case of switched OFF power of data logger.

!

Each input module is replaceable. Due to the possibility of data logger damage in incorrect manipulation with modules it is not allowed to manipulate with modules to unauthorized persons.

Input signals are connected by means of 2x24 pin dual part terminals. Part with connected leads can be taken out from data logger.

Not allowed manipulation and warning

!

Power source is a device connected to electric mains and if it is damaged including power cord there is danger of injury by electric current. It is not allowed to connect it to mains, if power cord is damaged or if its cover is damaged or removed. It is also not allowed to place it in humid and dangerous environment (e.g. bathroom etc.), at points exposed to direct sun radiation and other thermal sources, to prevent damage and deformation of the case. Data logger should not be operated with not protected terminals if dangerous voltage is connected.

Galvanic isolation is not designed for protection from electric current injury. In those cases it is necessary to apply additional isolation modules (e.g. measuring transformers). With this data logger operation of input modules with higher input voltage than is 50V AC / 75V DC is not allowed.

9.3 Technical parameters of input modules

Input modules are designed as individual replaceable units plugged in sockets behind connection terminals of input channels. Manufacturer does not recommend to replace modules by unskilled personnel.

Each input module is adjusted to fixed maximum measuring range, where it works correctly in specified limits of accuracy. Input modules contain part of protection circuitry, circuitry for signal unification and memory with stored calibration and configuration constants. With galvanic isolated inputs optical isolation of the signal by analog operational amplifier is used. User is not able to modify configuration of input modules. If needed user can recalculate measured value to desired real value with physical unit by means of a special menu item Recalculations in the PC program.

Galvanic isolated inputs have isolation strength of 500 V. It is not tested as safety isolation, see Not allowed manipulations and warning.

9.3.4 Input modules for temperature measurement from thermocouple transmitters

Inputs for measurement of thermocouple (except thermocouple type B) have compensation of cold junction temperature inside of data logger. Compensation temperature is measured on data logger

motherboard between terminals for channel 7 and channel 8. Value of this temperature is converted to thermoelectric voltage and added to value of thermoelectric voltage measured by thermocouple. Result is converted to temperature again, which is resulting measured temperature. If using thermocouples operate data logger in working position with input signal terminals towards down and do not install heat sources in the neighborhood.

These input modules are produced in version without galvanic isolation or galvanically isolated. Input with galvanic isolation is marked with additional letter G behind its type marking.

Time response to jump change of input signal is negligible refer to fastest sampling interval (1 s).

9.3.5 Input modules for counting pulses

Counter inputs are designed for counting of incoming pulses (gas meters, electrometers..). Modules contain own processor unit, which registers incoming pulses even if power is switched OFF (module has its own battery for power, if data logger is not switched ON). Record is performed similarly as with analog ie-ms2-MS5-03 59

inputs, i.e. by writing counter value to data memory in adjusted logging interval. Value from counter can be displayed in absolute format or as recalculated, in record it is possible to display relative format as increments in logging intervals. Counter module contains switch-able overshoot filter (fast changes) of input pulses.

This input module can cooperate with 1 up to 16 devices (resp. measured points). Module works that way, command for reading of data from the first transmitter is sent, then it waits for the response. Maximum waiting time is possible to set to aproximately 210 ms. After waiting time error of communication is reported and reading of next channel continues. If device responses in adjusted time, response is evaluated and also reading of next channel continues.
