Overview
1. Overview
1.1 Introduction
Function
The DR4300 recorder is a one or two pen microprocessor-based circular chart recorder. The basic DR4301
(one pen) and DR4302 (two pen) recorders provide reliable, convenient pen-drawn analog traces on
preprinted 10 inch (250 mm) charts. Both the chart and the pens are driven by stepper motors controlled by
the microprocessor. Chart speed and range are configurable. The basic recorder is also available in CE
models DR4321 (one pen) and DR4322 (two pen).
In addition to generating pen-drawn chart traces, the DR4311 (one pen) and DR4312 (two pen) models
include a display and keypad. This option lets you display the real time value of the process variable for
each pen channel, as well as other values. The recorder with display and keypad is also available in CE
models DR4331 (one pen) and DR4332 (two pen).
Each pen channel has its own printed circuit assembly (PCA), allowing the channels to operate
independently.
CE conformity (Europe)
Indicated models of this product are in conformity with the protection requirements of the following
European Council Directives: 73/23/EEC, the Low Voltage Directive, and 89/336/EEC, the EMC
Directive. Conformity of this product with any other “CE Mark” Directive(s) shall not be assumed.
Deviation from the installation conditions specified in this manual, and the special conditions for CE
conformity in Section 2 of this manual, may invalidate this product’s conformity with the Low Voltage and
EMC Directives.
Analog inputs
The input for each pen channel can be one of any standard electrical signal: milliamp, millivolt, voltage,
RTD, or thermocouple. The input type and range are configurable. In the models having display and
keypad the range can be expanded and compressed to meet specific measurement needs. The display and
keypad also permit entry of input bias and filter values. (The input filter for the models without a display is
fixed at one second; their bias is zero.)
Digital inputs
Two digital inputs for each pen channel are available as an option. These inputs can be used to trigger the
switchover to a second control setpoint or a pre-configured constant output if an external event causes
contact closure (sets the digital input to ON). In addition, the digital inputs can be used to remotely reset
the optional totalizer or limit controller.

Communications
The Modbus communication option permits configuration of the unit and monitoring of process variables
over a standard multi-drop serial communications link.
Relay outputs for control and alarms
The models with display and keypad are available with output relays, two for each pen channel. These
relays can be wired for Normally Open (NO) and Normally Closed (NC) terminals. ON-OFF control can
be performed using one relay (relay simplex control) or two relays (relay duplex control).
Any relay not used for control is available for alarming. Two alarm setpoints can be configured for each
alarm relay. An adjustable hysteresis of 0.0 % to 100.0 % is configurable for the alarm setpoint.
Analog output for control or retransmission
Depending on the model ordered, a 4 to 20 mA current output may be available for control or
retransmission of a process variable (“auxiliary output”).
Failsafe operation
The control function can operate in automatic or manual mode. In automatic the control function works to
maintain the process variable at the setpoint entered locally by the operator. During configuration a
“failsafe” value can be specified. This value is used as the output at power up and in case of input failure
during automatic operation. (When the unit goes to failsafe, the control function goes to manual mode.)
In manual mode the operator enters the output locally. If the recorder has gone to failsafe operation, the
operator will be able to change the output value from the failsafe value specified during configuration.
Timer and totalizer options
The recorder is available with timer and totalizer options. The timer can be started locally, remotely, or by
an alarm. The unit can be configured to display elapsed time or time remaining. At the end of the timeout
period Relay 2 is energized, and remains energized until the timer is reset. The totalizer can be reset
locally or remotely; its displayed value can be scaled.
Setpoint Programming Option
The recorder is available with a Setpoint Program option. This feature allows configuration of up to four
setpoint programs using a total of twenty-four ramp and soak segments. A setpoint and time is configured
for each segment. The program can be set up to include guaranteed soak segments. A plus/minus
deviation is configured for all soak segments. Whenever the plus/minus deviation is exceeded, soak timing
is frozen.
Display and keypad
In addition to process variables, the display can show output, setpoint, and deviation real time values if the
recorder is equipped with optional outputs. The upper display uses four characters to display the input
value. The lower display shows other parameters using a two- or three-character label and four- or threedigit values. In addition, status and error messages flash on the lower display when necessary.

Overview
The six keys are used to select the real time value to be displayed, and to select set up parameters and their
values during configuration. The display and keypad are behind the door, protecting them from dirt.
A supplementary external keypad is also available.
For more information about the operator interface on models having a display and keypad, see Subsection
4.2.
Configuration
The models without a display are configured with two switchbanks: one for configuration, the other for
input definition. Configuration is a simple matter of consulting a table in this manual; selecting the
appropriate combination of range, chart speed, engineering unit, and input type; then setting the switches as
shown in the table.
The display and keypad are used to configure models with these options. When the unit is in configuration
mode, set up parameters are displayed, and grouped by function. Designate site-specific values by selecting
them from a list of choices, or entering them as numeric values. The operator can be locked out from
making configuration changes.
The models with display also use a switchbank to define the type of input to be expected by the hardware.
Input parameters used by the software are configured using the display and keypad.
Self-diagnostics
All DR4300 recorders run self-diagnostics at power up and in the background during normal operation.
Problems are reported by error messages on the display when present. An LED in the models without a
display lights if the unit fails a self-diagnostic.
Construction
All DR4300 recorders are housed in a rugged molded case which can be panel-, pipe- or surface-mounted.
An acrylic-windowed, gasketed door protects internal components from harsh environments while
allowing easy access to the chart.

NOTE 1: PID control options include current output plus two discrete outputs for alarms. If ON-OFF or
time-proportioned simplex control is used, only one discrete output is available for an alarm.
Time-proportioned duplex control requires the use of both outputs and therefore no relay
outputs are available for alarms on that pen channel. Accutune II tuning is a standard feature
with PID control options.
NOTE 2: Customer must supply the input actuation and range information for each input in the Free Form
section of the order to have the unit supplied with a Certificate of Calibration.
NOTE 3: Digital Inputs are only available when ordering outputs in Table I.
NOTE 4: 4 to 20 mA Retransmission Output includes two outputs per pen for alarms. You must specify
the type of alarm outputs required (i.e., Relay, SS Relay, Open Collector Outputs).
NOTE 5: On key numbers DR4301, DR4302, DR4321, and DR4322 the communication address is fixed;
the display assembly is required to change it. Only one DR4301 or DR4321 instrument, or only
one pen of a DR4302 or DR4322 can exist on the network, otherwise communication conflicts
will exist. Pen 1 is the default when communications is specified on these models.
NOTE 6: Recorder is supplied with one box of 30755820-001, 0 to 100 Even "starter" charts. For special
range configuration on the DR4301, DR4302, DR4321, or DR4322 Recorder, provide the Input
Type, Chart Range, Chart Speed, °C or °F, Engineering Units, Linear or Non-Linear Chart Type
when ordering.
For example: Pen 1: "J" Thermocouple, 0-375 °F, 7-Day Linear Chart
Pen 2: 4-20 mA, 0-1000, 7-Day Linear Chart
For configuration on Models DR4311, DR4312, DR4331, and DR4332, the customer must
supply completed "Configuration Worksheets" with order for units to be Factory configured.

Taking electrical noise precautions
Electrical noise is composed of unabated electrical signals which produce undesirable effects in
measurement and control circuits.
Digital equipment is especially sensitive to the effects of electrical noise. Your recorder has built-in circuits
to reduce the effect of electrical noise from various sources. If there is a need to further reduce these
effects:
• Separate External Wiring—Separate connecting wires into bundles (see Table 2-6) and route the
individual bundles through separate conduits or metal trays.
• Use Suppression Devices—For additional noise protection, you may want to add suppression
devices at the external source. Appropriate suppression devices are commercially available.
For additional noise information, refer to document 51-52-05-01, How to Apply Digital Instrumentation in
Severe Electrical Noise Environments.
CE conformity special conditions (Europe)
Shielded cables with a drain wire are required for all input and output cables. All instrument shielded
cable drain wires must be connected to a low impedance earth ground at the entry fitting. Cable/conduit
entry fittings shall effectively terminate the cable shield connecting the shield to the enclosure conductive
coating. The shielded cable shield shall not extend into the instrument closure.

2.6.1 Discrete Outputs
Introduction
Each pen channel in the recorder models having display and keypad can be equipped with two optional
discrete outputs. These outputs can be used for control or alarming, depending on the configuration as
described in Section 4 – Configuration, Startup, and Operation of Recorder with Display.
Three types of discrete outputs are available:
• electromechanical relay
• solid state relay
• open collector output
ATTENTION
The electromechanical relays on the printed circuit assembly (PCA) for each pen channel can be wired for
Normally Open (NO) and Normally Closed (NC) operation.
ATTENTION
The DR4300 is available as a limit controller. In a limit controller each pen channel’s printed circuit
assembly Relay 1 (TB4 terminals 3 and 2 for NO contacts, and 2 and 1 for NC contacts) is used for
limit control. When the recorder detects that the input has exceeded the limit (or fallen below the
limit, depending on configuration), the controller goes to the limit state: Relay 1 is de-energized.

1 If the load current is less than the minimum rated value of 20 mA, there may be a residual voltage
across both ends of the load even if the relay is turned off. Use a dummy resistor as shown to
counteract this. The total current through the resistor and the load current must exceed 20 mA.
2 Solid State relays are rated at 0.5 Amps. Size fuses accordingly.

Configuration, Startup, and Operation
of Recorder without Display
3. Configuration, Startup, and Operation of
Basic Recorder without Display
3.1 Overview
Introduction
Set up the functionality of the models that do not have a display and keypad using configuration and input
switches. Each pen channel in the recorder has an associated printed circuit assembly (PCA) shown in
Figure 3-1. The configuration switches are the SW1 switchbank. The input switches are the SW6
switchbank. If your recorder is equipped with two pens, the printed circuit assemblies for the two pens can
be set up differently. The PCA for pen 1 (purple) is on the right (when facing the recorder); the PCA for
pen 2 (red) is on the left (if present).
Set up is fast and easy. This section includes a table that shows the various available combinations of
recording selections (such as chart range, length of time for single rotation of chart, whether the input is
linear or non-linear), input actuation types, and whether jumper R56 should be in or out. Find your desired
configuration for the pen 1 channel on the table, then set the SW1 and SW6 switches as indicated. Repeat
the process for the pen 2 channel, if available on your recorder, and set up is complete.

3.2 Configuration (Recording Set Up)
3.2.1 Setting Configuration and Input Switches
Introduction
Configuration switches SW1 (see Figure 3-1) and input switches SW6 are provided on each printed circuit
assembly associated with a pen channel. If your recorder is equipped with two pens, the printed circuit
assemblies for the two pens can be set up differently.
Table 3-2 shows the various available combinations of recording selections (such as chart range, length of
time for single rotation of chart, whether input is linear or non-linear), input actuation types, and whether
jumper R56 should be in or out.
Figure 3-2 shows a sample chart for a 1-pen recorder.
Procedure
Follow the procedure in Table 3-1 to set up your recorder model without display. (To set up a model with a
display see Section 4 – Configuration, Startup, and Operation of Recorder with Display.)
The procedure described here assumes that the chart door is opened, the chart plate is swung out, and the
power is removed.
WARNING
SHOCK HAZARD
When the unit is powered a potentially lethal shock hazard exists at the AC line connections at TB1 on
each printed circuit assembly. Make sure the unit power is disconnected before starting the procedure.
More than one switch may be required to de-energize the recorder.
Failure to observe this precaution can result in exposure to a potentially lethal shock hazard.
Table 3-1 Procedure for Configuring Model without Display
Step
Action
1
Turn off the power to the recorder.
2
Go to Table 3-2 and find the desired combination of recording selections and input type for the
pen 1 channel.
3
Set the switches in SW1 and SW6 on the pen 1 printed circuit assembly (the PCA on the right
when facing recorder) as indicated in Table 3-2. (Pen 1 is purple.)
4
Repeat for pen 2 channel (if available).
5
For each PCA, make a note of the number assigned to the configuration (from first column of
Table 3-2). If you have to call Honeywell Technical Assistance for help, tell the support staff the
configuration number(s) of the pen channel(s) in your recorder to speed up the troubleshooting
process.
ATTENTION
If you set the switches in an ON/OFF combination that does not match any of the configurations in
Table 3-2, the recorder will use configuration #1.

3.2.2 Setting SW6 Switch 2
Off for RTD actuation
For thermocouple and mV inputs, the setting of SW6 switch 2 affects the displayed input in case of
burnout or other input failure.
Burnout is always upscale on an instrument with no display. When an input fails, the pen is driven upscale.
However, if the SW6-2 setting is ON, the pen may be driven downscale momentarily until the input circuit
is driven underrange.
It is important, however, to set the switch to OFF in the case of RTD actuation.
ATTENTION
If SW6 switch 2 is ON for an RTD input, the recorder will not be able to process the input
accurately, even when the input sensor is providing a valid signal.

3.3 Startup and Operation of Recorder without Display
3.3.1 Overview
Introduction
This subsection provides procedures and reference information for operating the recorder models that do
not have a display. It assumes that the recorder has been properly mounted and wired in accordance with
the instructions in Section 2, and prepared as described earlier in this section.
WARNING—SHOCK HAZARD
!
SET THE SWITCHES DESCRIBED IN THIS SECTION WITH THE UNIT
POWER DISCONNECTED. DO NOT TOUCH POWER CONNECTIONS
AT TB1. FAILURE TO OBSERVE THIS PRECAUTION CAN RESULT IN
EXPOSURE TO A POTENTIALLY LETHAL SHOCK HAZARD. MORE THAN
ONE SWITCH MAY BE REQUIRED TO DE-ENERGIZE UNIT.

3.3.2 Preparing the Recorder for Operation
Introduction
Before applying power to the recorder, complete these preparation tasks.
ATTENTION
Never move the pen arms when the unit is operating unless adjusting the pen alignment as
described in Section 7.
WARNING
SHOCK HAZARD
When the unit is powered a potentially lethal shock hazard exists at the AC line connections at TB1 on
each printed circuit assembly (behing the chart plate). Make sure the unit power is disconnected before
starting the procedure. More than one switch may be required to de-energize the recorder.
Failure to observe this precaution can result in exposure to a potentially lethal shock hazard.
Procedure
Refer to Figure 3-3 to identify the basic chart plate components and follow the procedure in Table 3-3 to
prepare the recorder for operation.
Table 3-3 Preparing the Recorder for Operation
Step
Action
1
Open the door.
2
Pull up on the pen lifter to raise the pen(s) from the chart plate and remove the protective cap
from each pen tip. Lift the locking clip on the chart hub.
3
Slip the new chart under the pen lifter, pen and time index, and press it into place over the
chart hub.
4
Turn the chart until the desired time line on the chart is aligned with the time index on the chart
plate and pen 1 before closing the locking clip on the hub. Push down on the lifter to return the
pen(s) to the chart.
CAUTION: Do not try to rotate the hub.

3.3.3 Running the Optional Step Test
Introduction
You can test the recorder’s mechanical operation by running a “step test”. This test is initiated by setting
switches as described in Table 3-4.
This test prints a step pattern, which is independent of any chart settings, with horizontal lines drawn by
both pens at each 10% increment on the chart (see Figure 3-4).
The test will run for one complete revolution of the chart before it returns to normal operation. The chart
revolution for the test takes approximately three minutes, regardless of configured chart speed.
WARNING
SHOCK HAZARD
When the unit is powered a potentially lethal shock hazard exists at the AC line connections at TB1 on
each printed circuit assembly (behing the chart plate). Make sure the unit power is disconnected before
starting the procedure. More than one switch may be required to de-energize the recorder.
Failure to observe this precaution can result in exposure to a potentially lethal shock hazard.
Procedure
Use the procedure in Table 3-4 to run the step test.
Table 3-4 Procedure for Running the Step Test
1/06
Action/Result
1
Turn off the power to the recorder.
2
Make sure the cap is removed from the tip of each pen
and the chart is installed.
3
Loosen captive screw and swing out the chart plate.
4
Note the position of all eight switches on SW1 on the
printed circuit assembly (PCA) for each pen.
5
Being careful of the shock hazard at TB1, set
switches 1 and 2 in SW1 in the OFF position on each
pen’s PCA. All other SW1 switches should be ON
(toward the edge of the board). This is configuration
#252 in Table 3-2.
6
Being careful of the shock hazard at TB1, place run
switch SW5 to the setup position (toward the top of the
board) on each pen’s PCA.
7
Apply power to the recorder.
8
The recorder will begin the test. The duration of the test
is approximately 3 minutes. (When the test has been
completed the pens will move away from the test
position, but the recorder cannot return to normal
operation until the switches are returned to their
correct non-test settings.)

4.3 Configuration (Recording and Output Set Up)
4.3.1 Overview
Introduction
The display and keypad on the DR4311, DR431, DR4331, and DR4332 models are used for setting up
recording and output options in Set Up (configuration) mode, as well as for displaying real-time values
during normal operation. (Instructions for using the user interface are in Subsection 4.2.)
When the recorder is in configuration mode, setup parameters are displayed, grouped by function.
Designate site-specific values by selecting them from a list of choices, or entering them as numeric values.
If your recorder is equipped with two pens, function parameters are configured separately for each pen, and
stored on the printed circuit assembly (PCA) associated with that pen. The PCA on the right (when facing
recorder) is for pen 1 (purple); the PCA on the left is for pen 2 (red).
If the hardware supports optional relay outputs for each pen, parameters are available for configuring
control and/or alarms using these outputs. If an optional relay is used, then it can be wired for Normally
Open and Normally Closed action.
Hardware switches must be set to match the input type, and to specify input state in case of input failure.

4.3.3 How to Get Started
Read the configuration tips
Read Subsection 4.3.4 “Configuration Tips”. These tips will help you configure your recorder quickly and
easily.
Set the hardware switches
Refer to Subsection 4.3.5 “Switch Settings” for required hardware switch settings on the printed circuit
assembly associated with each pen. The hardware switches should be set before specifying values for
function parameters.
Install recorder
Connect the recorder to ac power as described in Section 2 so that you will be able to configure the unit
using the display.
Become familiar with the configuration procedure
Read Subsection 4.3.6 “Configuration Procedure” to learn how to access the set up groups, and the
function parameters within each of these groups (shown in the prompt hierarchy in Figure 4-2).
Assign application-specific values to the set up parameters
The set up groups and function parameters are listed in this section in the order of their appearance on the
display. The list includes the name of the prompt, the range of setting or selections available, the definition
of each parameter, and the factory setting. It allows you to quickly find a parameter and determine the
appropriate value or selection for your application.
Complete configuration record sheet
Subsection 4.3.21 contains a “Configuration Record Sheet”. It is good practice to record your instrument’s
configuration for future reference.

Displaying Groups
Use the SET UP key to display the set up groups. The group titles are
listed in this section in the order that they appear in the recorder.
Displaying Functions
Use the FUNC key to display the individual function parameters under
each group. The prompts are listed in the order of their appearance in each
group.
Scrolling
Holding the SET UP key in will scroll through the set up groups. However,
when any set up group is displayed, you can scroll through the set up groups
twice as fast using the σ or τ key. When in any set up group, hold the
FUNC key in to scroll through the prompts within that group.
Changing values quickly
When changing the value of a parameter, you can adjust a more significant
digit in the upper display by holding in one key [σ] or [τ], and pressing the
other [σ] or [τ] at the same time.
• The adjustment will move one digit to the left.
• Press the key again and you will move one more digit to the left.
Exiting Set Up mode
To exit Set Up mode, press the DISP key.
This returns the display to the same state it was in immediately preceding
entry into the Set Up mode.
Timing out from

4.3.5 Switch Settings
4.3.5.1 Introduction
Significance of hardware switches in models with display
SW6 input switches: The display and keypad are used to configure the software on each pen channel’s
printed circuit assembly (PCA). In addition, the input hardware switches 1, 3, 4, 5 and 6 in SW6 must be
set to match the input type as described in Subsection 4.3.5.2. This is required so that the recorder
hardware will provide an appropriate value to the recorder software.
SW6 burnout switch 2: This burnout switch should be set to specify whether the input used by the
recorder for the channel should be sent over range or under range if the input to the recorder fails while the
“BRNOUT” parameter value is “NONE”. Alternatively, if the “BRNOUT” parameter has a value of “UP”
or “DOWN” switch 2 should be set to match. Details are provided in Subsection 4.3.5.3.
SW1 configuration switches: In a recorder model having a display and keypad all switches in SW1 will
be ignored if the cable from the display and keypad assembly is plugged into J4 on the PCA associated
with the pen channel. (SW1 switches are used to configure recorder models that do not have a display and
keypad as described in Section 3.)
ATTENTION
If the display cable is disconnected after the software has been configured using the display and
keypad, the recorder’s behavior will depend on the settings of the SW1 switches. If all SW1
switches are in the OFF position when the cable is disconnected, the recorder will continue to use
the software configuration entered with the display and keypad. However, if all SW1 switches are
not OFF when the cable is disconnected, the recorder will use the configuration in Table 3-2 that
matches the SW1 switch settings. (If the switch setting combination does not match any
configuration in Table 3-2, the recorder will use configuration #1.)

4.3.5.2 Setting SW6 Input Switches
SW6 switches 1, 3, 4, 5, 6 define input type
In a recorder model having a display and keypad the input switches at SW6 must be set to match the type
of input to be used. The location of SW6 is shown in Figure 4-3. The appropriate switch settings for the
various input types are shown in Table 4-3.
Note that the setting of switch 2 in SW6 is not related to input type. It is used, along with the “BRNOUT”
parameter in the input group, to specify the effects of an input failure as described in Subsection 4.3.5.3.
ATTENTION
The ON position for SW6 switches is toward the left side of the printed circuit assembly (when
facing recorder.)

4.3.5.3 Setting SW6 Burnout Switch
Overview
What happens to the displayed input value when the input signal to the recorder fails depends on several
factors: the input type, the setting of SW6 switch 2, and the value of the “BRNOUT” parameter in the input
set up group.
SW6 switch 2 OFF for RTD
If the input to the pen channel is from an RTD, SW6 switch 2 must always be set to OFF.
CAUTION
If SW6 switch 2 is ON for an RTD input, the recorder will not be able to process the input correctly,
even when the input sensor is providing a valid input signal.
SW6 switch 2 setting unimportant for Volt, mV, and mA inputs
It does not matter whether SW6 switch 2 is ON or OFF if the pen channel uses a Volt, mV, or mA input
signal. In case of input failure, the displayed input value will show little change, regardless of the setting of
SW6 switch 2 or the value assigned to the “BRNOUT” parameter. (However, the value of “BRNOUT” is
still important to implementing your control strategy because the value of “BRNOUT” affects the output
used in case of input failure. See Subsection 4.3.11 for details.)
SW6 switch 2 setting determines displayed thermocouple input if BRNOUT = NONE
If the value of “BRNOUT” is “NONE” when a thermocouple input fails, then the setting of SW6 switch 2
determines whether the displayed input value will be under range or over range. The recorder can display
1 % over or under range for thermocouples.
• If SW6 switch 2 is ON, the displayed value will be under range.
• If SW6 switch 2 is OFF, the displayed value will be over range.
If the pen is configured to trace the input value (“PENIN” pen set up parameter value is “INP”), then the
pen will also be driven over or under range.
Note that the over range or under range input will have no effect on output. When “BRNOUT” =
“NONE”, the recorder uses the configured failsafe value as the output in case of input failure, rather than a
calculated value based on input.
SW6 switch 2 setting for thermocouple inputs should match BRNOUT if BRNOUT = UP OR DOWN
We recommend that, in the case of thermocouple inputs, SW6 switch 2 be set to OFF if “BRNOUT” =
“UP” and ON if “BRNOUT” = “DOWN”.
When the input failure first occurs, the displayed input for a thermocouple input will briefly be driven
according to the hardware switch setting. However, as soon as the software recognizes that it has received
an out-of-range input signal, the displayed input will be driven according to the value, “UP” or “DOWN”,
configured for “BRNOUT”. The displayed value (over range or under range) as configured in “BRNOUT”,
will remain on the display until a valid input is restored.
1/06
DR4300 Circular Chart Recorder Product Manual
83
DR4300 Circular Chart Recorder
If the switch and the set up parameter do not match, operator confusion may result. For example, in case of
mismatch the displayed value could first go under range, then quickly go over range. However, except for
the brief period before the software reacts to the out-of-range value, the effect of the mismatch is
insignificant.

4.3.6 Configuration Procedure
Introduction
The configuration prompts are sequenced in a group/function hierarchy as shown in Figure 4-2. Once you
have set the input switches in SW6 as described in Subsection 4.3.5, configure all the function parameters
that are applicable for your recorder model and application. During configuration some function
parameters will not be displayed if they do not apply to your application. For example, if you set the
control group function “CONTRL” to “DIS”, disabling control, then no other control group prompts will
be displayed.
To enter your selections or values, follow the procedure in Table 4-4 and fill in the values or selections on
the worksheet in Subsection 4.3.21. Keep this worksheet as a record of how your recorder was configured.
This procedure tells you the keys to press to get to any set up group (and any associated function
parameters prompt).
Procedure
Follow the procedure listed in Table 4-4 to access the set up groups and function prompts. If you have a
2-pen recorder, be sure to identify individual parameters for each pen and control loop as applicable.
Make sure lock set up group “LOCK” function is set to “NONE” or “CAL.” See Subsection 4.3.19.

If the recorder hardware supports totalizer functions, the functions in this group are used to calculate and
display the total flow volume as measured by the input. The displayed value is six digits with a

The totalized value can be in engineering units different from the input, by setting INP EU (engineering
units of input) and TOT EU (engineering units of totalized value).
The total can be displayed with one or two decimal places to provide more resolution for selections that
produce smal values (e.g., Acre-Feet). A Scaler configuration other than one will override the decimal
display.

(50 % to 100 %). For example, a control output of 50 %
would result in a 4 mA current output.
CONTROL ALGORITHM—Use this to specify the type of
control appropriate for your application.
ON/OFF [factory setting]
ON/OFF is the simplest type of control. The output can be
either ON (100 %) or OFF (0 %). The process variable
(PV) is compared with the setpoint (SP) to determine the
sign of the error (ERROR = PV–SP). The ON/OFF
algorithm operates on the sign of the error.
In direct-acting control (set with parameter “ACTION”
described below), when the error is positive, the output is
100 %. When the error is negative, the output is 0 %. If
the control action is reverse, the opposite is true. An
adjustable overlap is provided between the ON and OFF
states. (See “HYST” below.)
DUPLEX ON/OFF is an extension of this algorithm that
applies when the “OUTLAG” is set for “RLYD” (relay
duplex). It allows for the operation of a second ON/OFF
output. There is a configurable deadband (see “DBAND”
below) between the operating ranges of the two inputs,
and a separately configurable overlap (“HYST”) of the ON
and OFF states of each output. With no relay action the
controller output will read 50 %.

Parameter
Definition
PROPORTIONAL-INTEGRAL-DERIVATIVE—
PID A is normally used for three-mode control. Unlike
ON/OFF control, with PID A the output can be
somewhere between 100 % and 0 %. PID A applies all
three control actions (Proportional, Integral, and
Derivative) to the error. This control can be tuned using
the parameters in the tuning group.
• Proportional (gain) regulates the controller’s output in
proportion to the size of the error (difference between
setpoint and process variable).
• Integral (reset) regulates the controller’s output in
proportion to the size of the error and time the error
has existed (duration). The amount of corrective action
depends on the value of the proportional gain.
• Derivative (rate) regulates the controller’s output in
proportion to the rate of change of the error. Again, the
amount of correction depends on the gain setting.
PDMR
PROPORTIONAL-DERIVATIVE with MANUAL
RESET—Use PDMR whenever integral action is not
needed during automatic control. The output is calculated
with no integral contribution. Then the value specified
using the tuning parameter “MANRST” (manual reset) is
added to the computed output to determine the controller
output.
Switching between manual and auto modes will not be
bumpless in PDMR.
PDMR variations: If you select PDMR you can configure
the following variations:
• PD (proportional-derivative) control, by setting
MANRST to 0.
• P (proportional only) control, by setting MANRST
(integral term) to 0 and rate (derivative term) to 0
(tuning parameter “RATE T”).

PBorGN
PB
Percent proportional band is the percent of the range of
the measured variable for which a proportional-only
controller will produce a 100 % change in its output.
GAIN [factory setting]
Gain is the ratio of output change (%) over the measured
variable change (%) that caused it.
The relationship between %PB and gain can be
expressed as: GAIN = 100
%PB
For example, setting PB = 20 % will have the same effect on
control as setting GAIN = 5. Therefore, if the change in the PV
input were 3 % of the whole range of possible input values, then
the resulting change in the output due to proportional only control
would be 15 % of the output’s range, regardless of whether
PBorGN = PB and PB = 20, or PBorGN = GN and GAIN = 5.
Another example: Setting PB = 50 % will have the same effect as
setting GAIN = 2. In this case, if the change in input were again 3
% of range, then the resulting output change would be 6 %.
ATTENTION If the setting of PBorGN is changed, you
must change the value of the associated tuning parameter (“PB”
or “GAIN”) if you want to maintain the same control action. For
example, suppose PBorGN = PB and the value of tuning
parameter “PB” = 20. If you change PBorGN to GAIN, the value
of tuning parameter “GAIN” will now be 20 (the value formerly
assigned to “PB”). If you want the same control action you had
before, you must change the value of “GAIN” to 5.

4.3.12 Tuning Parameters Set Up Group
Introduction
Tuning consists of establishing the appropriate values for tuning constants so that your recorder responds
correctly to changes in process variable and setpoint. You can start with estimated values, but you will
have to watch the system to judge how to modify the values. The tuning group parameters described in this
subsection are available only if:
•
your recorder supports control
and
•
the control type specified in the control setup group using the “CTRALG” (control algorithm)
parameter is “PIDA” or “PDMR”.
Two sets of PID constants
Two sets of PID constants are provided for duplex control. When the recorder is used in a heat/cool
application, the first set (“PB” or “GAIN”, “RATE T”, and “I MIN” or “I RPM”) apply to heat control.
The second set (“PB2” or “GAIN 2”, “RATE2T”, and “I2 MIN” or “I2 RPM”) are used for cooling
control.
Accutune II
Accutune II provides foolproof, trouble-free on-demand tuning in the recorder. No knowledge of the
process is required at start-up. The operator simply enters the desired setpoint and initiates the tuning. The
recorder immediately starts controlling to the setpoint while it identifies the process, calculates the tuning
constants and enters them into the tuning set up group, and begins PID control with the correct tuning
parameters. This works with any process, including integrating type processes, and allows retuning at a
fixed setpoint. The tuning sequence will cycle the recorder’s output two full cycles between 0 % and 100
% (or low and high output limits) while allowing only a very small process variable change above and
below the setpoint during each cycle.
Detailed instructions for using Accutune are provided in Appendix D.
Fuzzy overshoot suppression
A parameter is provided to enable/disable fuzzy overshoot suppression. When enabled, fuzzy overshoot
suppression minimizes process variable overshoot following a setpoint change or a process disturbance.
This is especially useful in processes which experience load changes or where even a small overshoot
beyond the setpoint may result in damage or lost product.
The fuzzy logic observes the speed and direction of the PV signal as it approaches the setpoint and
temporarily modifies the internal controller response action as necessary to avoid an overshoot. There is
no change to the PID algorithm, and the fuzzy logic does not alter the PID tuning parameters.

RATE—Rate action affects the recorder’s output
whenever the deviation between setpoint and process
variable is changing. It affects it more when the deviation
is changing faster. (This is the “derivative” component of
control.)
ATTENTION If control group parameter “OUTALG”
is “RLYD” (relay duplex), “Tcur” (time/current duplex), or
“CurT” (current/time duplex), and you are using the
recorder in a heat/cool application, RATE T is used for
heat control. Cooling control would use RATE2T

[factory setting = 0.02]
RESET IN MINUTES PER REPEAT or RESET IN
REPEATS PER MINUTE—Which of these prompts is
displayed depends on the selection made for control
group parameter “MINRPM”.
Reset adjusts the recorder’s output taking into
consideration both the size of the deviation (SP-PV) and
the duration of the deviation. (This is the “integral”
component of control.) The amount of corrective action
depends on the value of PB or GAIN.
The reset value specified here determines how many
times proportional action is repeated per minute
(I RPM) or the length (in minutes) of the reset action (I
MIN). For example, if I MIN = .5, it is the same as if I
RPM = 2. The result is the same; two resets are
performed in every minute.
ATTENTION If control group parameter “OUTALG”
is “RLYD” (relay duplex), “Tcur” (time/current duplex), or
“CurT” (current/time duplex), and you are using the
recorder in a heat/cool application, I MIN or I RPM is
used for heat control. Cooling control would use I2 MIN
or I2 RPM described later in this table.

–100 to +100 (in % output)

MANUAL RESET—This parameter is only applicable if
control group parameter “CTRALG” is “PDMR”
(PD with manual reset). Because a proportional recorder
will not necessarily line out at setpoint, there will be a
deviation (offset) from setpoint. This reset value can be
used to eliminate the offset and lets the PV line out at
setpoint. The controller output is the computed output
plus the value of MANRST.

example, with a 10-second cycle time and an output value
of 10 %, the relay would be on for 1 second and off for 9
seconds.

4.3.15 Alarms Set Up Group
Introduction
If the recorder hardware supports outputs, one or both relays can be used for alarming. An alarm is an
indication that an event that you have selected during configuration (process variable, for example) has
exceeded one or more alarm limits. There are two alarms available for each pen (assuming no relay is
being used for control). Each alarm has two setpoints. There are two alarm output selections, high and low.
1/06
DR4300 Circular Chart Recorder Product Manual
107
DR4300 Circular Chart Recorder
You can configure each setpoint to alarm either high or low. Each alarm has an adjustable hysteresis of 0.0
% to 100.0 % that is configurable for that alarm's setpoint.
If the “OUTALG” function in the control group is set to “RLYD”, both relays on the printed circuit
assembly for the pen being configured are used for control, and the prompts in the alarm group will not be
displayed. If “OUTALG” is “RLY”, or if the recorder is a limit controller, then Relay 1 is used for control.
In these cases only the prompts for the second alarm (Relay 2) will be displayed.
If “TIMER” is set to “ENAB”, then Relay 2 is used by the timer and prompts for the second alarm will not
be displayed.

Introduction
Before applying power to the recorder, complete these preparation tasks.
ATTENTION
Never move the pen arms when the unit is operating unless adjusting the pen alignment as
described in Section 8.
WARNING
SHOCK HAZARD
When the unit is powered a potentially lethal shock hazard exists at the AC line connections at TB1 on
each printed circuit assembly (behing the chart plate). Make sure the unit power is disconnected before
starting the procedure. More than one switch may be required to de-energize the recorder.
Failure to observe this precaution can result in exposure to a potentially lethal shock hazard.
Procedure
Refer to Figure 4-4 to identify the basic chart plate components and follow the procedure in Table 4-20 to
prepare the recorder for operation.
Table 4-20 Preparing the Recorder for Operation
Step

4.4.3 Running the Optional Step Test
Introduction
You can test the recorder’s mechanical operation by running a step test. This test is initiated using the
keypad as described in Table 4-21.
This test prints a step pattern, which is independent of any chart settings, with horizontal lines drawn by
both pens at each 10 % increment on the chart (see Figure 4-5).
WARNING
SHOCK HAZARD
When the unit is powered a potentially lethal shock hazard exists at the AC line connections at TB1 on
each printed circuit assembly (behing the chart plate). Make sure the unit power is disconnected before
starting the procedure. More than one switch may be required to de-energize the recorder.
Failure to observe this precaution can result in exposure to a potentially lethal shock hazard.
The test will run for one complete revolution of the chart before it stops itself. The chart revolution for the
test takes approximately 2 minutes, regardless of configured chart speed. However, the test can be
terminated at any time by pressing the DISP key.
Additional automatic self-tests
At power-up the recorder runs self-diagnostics on the printed circuit assembly for each pen. See Section 0
and Section 8 – Troubleshooting and Pen Alignment of Recorder with Display for more information about
these diagnostic tests.
Procedure
Use the procedure in Table 4-21 to run the step test.
Table 4-21 Procedure for Running the Step Test
Step

Action/Result
1
Make sure the cap is removed from the tip of each pen and the chart is
installed. (If you plan to store or ship the recorder, save the protective caps
for the pen tips. Replace them if the recorder is taken out of operation.)
2
Being careful of the shock hazard at TB1, swing out the chart plate and
set SW5 on the printed circuit assembly on the right (pen 1) to the setup
position, toward the top of the board.
Be certain that the Lockout level is "CAL" or "NONE". The self-test will not
run otherwise.

4.4.4.3 Diagnostic tests
Tests run automatically
When the recorder is powered-up, self-diagnostics are run by the software.
As the tests in Table 4-23 are run, the display indicates whether the tests were passed or failed as described
below.

Status of tests displayed
As the tests are run, the lower line of the display shows which test is running. The upper line of the display
indicates the status. If any of these tests fail, “FAIL” appears momentarily in the upper display, then a
display test is run. The display changes to show the value of the process variable on the top line, and the
error message for the failed test on the second line.
In addition, if the control group parameter “CONTRL” has a value of “ENAB” when the test is failed, the
message “FAILSF” (failsafe) will alternate with error message for the test, and the controller will be in
manual mode. When the “FAILSF” message is displayed, it indicates that the recorder control output has
been driven to the value assigned to the control group “FAILSF” parameter.
By default, when the recorder is powered up the display will be for pen 1. Therefore, when the power up
tests run, the “PASS” and “FAIL” messages will apply only to the printed circuit assembly associated with
pen 1. However, in a 2-pen recorder the tests will also be run on the printed circuit assembly for pen 2. If
the pen 2 assembly fails one of the tests, the message “P2 ERR” will be displayed, along with any error
messages from the pen 1 tests.
Section 8 contains additional information about self-diagnostics, and suggested remedies if a problem is
detected.

4.5.1 Monitoring Your Recorder
4.5.1.1 Overview
Introduction
In addition to the historical chart record, you can monitor the recorder’s indicators and displays to see real
time values of inputs. If control is enabled, then setpoint, output, and deviation values can also be
displayed.
Set up values can also be viewed. Depending on the lockout status, configuration values may also be
changed.
As a background task the recorder runs self-diagnostics on the printed circuit assemblies for the pens as
described in Section 8 – Troubleshooting and Pen Alignment of Recorder with Display. If a test is failed,
an error message will be displayed as described in Subsection 0. Depending on the recorder’s
configuration, a “failsafe” output value may be used for control in case of malfunction, as described in
Section 8.

4.5.1.3 Viewing the operating parameters
Contents of display
The upper display uses four characters to display the value of the input. During normal operation, you can
view various real time values and setpoints in the lower six-character display if the recorder supports
control. Each value will be labeled. Press the DISP key to scroll through the displayed values listed in
Table 4-27. If the recorder does not support control, then only the label “INP” or the totalizer value will
appear in the lower display. (The input value will be in the upper display.)
The display shows only those parameters and values that apply to your specific model and the way in
which it was configured. For recorders with two pens, remember that any controller-related values
displayed correspond with the lighted INP indicator. “1” means that the values apply to the pen 1 input
channel and “2” means that the values apply to the pen 2 input channel. Press FUNC key to toggle
between input 1 and input 2.

4.5.2.2 Changing Control Mode and Adjusting Output Manually
Available modes
The recorder can operate in one of two modes.
• Manual: When switched to manual mode, the recorder holds its output at the last value used during
automatic operation and stops adjusting the output for changes in process variable. In manual, the
operator uses the keypad to adjust the output by changing the value shown in the upper display.
If the switch to manual is the result of an input failure sending the channel to failsafe operation, the
output value displayed when the controller first switches to manual will be the value of the “FAILSF”
parameter in the control set up group. This “FAILSF” value is expressed as a percentage. The output
can be any value between 0 % and 100 %.
• Automatic with Local Setpoint: In automatic local mode, the recorder uses the local setpoint and
automatically adjusts the output to maintain the setpoint at the desired value. In this mode you can
adjust the setpoint as described in Subsection 4.5.2.3.
Procedure for selecting manual or automatic mode

4.5.2.4 Viewing and Changing Alarm Setpoints
Introduction
If the recorder hardware supports outputs, one or both relays can be used for alarming. An alarm is an
indication that an event specified during configuration (process variable, for example) has exceeded one or
more alarm limits. There are two alarms available for each pen (assuming no relay is being used for
control). Each alarm has two setpoints. There are two alarm output selections, high and low. During
configuration, each alarm setpoint is configured to alarm either high or low.
The alarm setpoints can be changed by the operator if the alarm parameters are not locked (see Subsection
4.3.19). If a recorder output is being used for control, that output is not available as an alarm and
the prompts will not appear.

4.5.2.5 Selecting Factory or Field Calibration Values
Introduction
Recorders are calibrated at the factory. The calibration values for each pen channel are stored on the
printed circuit assembly associated with the pen. In addition, provision is made for the storage of field
calibration values. The procedure for calibrating an input is provided in Section 5 – Input and Output
Calibration for Recorder with Display. Entering field calibration values does not affect the stored factory
calibration.
The “LD CAL” parameter in the input set up group for each pen channel permits you to specify whether
factory or field calibration values are to be used by the recorder.
Procedure
Follow the procedure in Table 4-32 to select factory or field calibration values.
ATTENTION
If you change the type of input used by the recorder, you must change the setting of the “IN TYP”
parameter in the input set up group (see Subsection 4.3.7). Changing the input type also requires
changing the settings of hardware switches at SW6 (see Subsection 4.3.5.2).

4.5.2.6 Resetting the Totalizer
Introduction
The models having a display and keypad are available with an optional totalizer to calculate and display the
total flow volume as measured by the pen channel’s input. The displayed value is six digits with a
configurable scale factor. The scale factor is displayed as “En”, where n is 10n. For example:
• If the display reads “189 E0”, then the totalized value since last reset is 189 x 100 or 189.
• If the display reads “189 E3”, then the totalized value since last reset is 189 x 103 or 189,000.
• If the display reads “189” E8”, then the totalized value since the last reset is 189 x 108 or
18,900,000,000.
The value of the totalizer set up group parameter “RSTABL” (resettable) determines whether and how the
totalizer can be reset. If RSTABL = KEY, then the totalizer can be reset using the procedure in
Table 4-33. If RSTABL is set to REM1 or REM2, the totalizer will be reset by Digital Input 1 or Digital
Input 2, respectively.
Reset procedure

4.5.2.7 Starting the Timer
Introduction
The DR4300 is available with an optional timer. This timer can be configured to be started by Alarm 1 or
the keypad. (If the recorder supports digital inputs, one can be used to trigger the timer. This remote
switch is independent of whether the timer is configured to start with the alarm or the keypad.)
Once the timer has been started, it cannot be stopped with the Increment and Decrement keys (see Step 3
below).
At the end of timer period Relay 2 will be energized, and remain energized until the timer is reset.
• If the timer set up group parameter START = KEY, then restarting the timer will involve pushing the
Increment or Decrement key twice while the timer is displayed: once to reset the timer and deenergize Relay 2, and the second to start the timer.
• If the timer set up group START = AL1, then when Alarm 1 toggles (goes inactive, then active again)
the timer is reset and restarted. When the timer is configured to start via Alarm 1, the timer can be
reset (but not restarted) with the Increment or Decrement key. If the Alarm 1 relay is still energized
when you reset the timer with the key, then the timer will be restarted immediately.

4.5.2.8 Resetting the Limit Controller
Introduction
The DR4300 is available as a limit controller. On each pen channel’s printed circuit assembly Relay 1 is
used for limit control. When the recorder detects that the input has exceeded the limit (or fallen below the
limit, depending on how the unit is configured) the controller goes to the limit state: Relay 1 is
de-energized.
Limit controller operator interface
The operator interface on a limit controller is the same as that of other models having a display and keypad.
The MAN/AUTO/RESET key functions as a reset only. Manual and Auto mode do not apply to the limit
controller.
When the recorder’s controller goes to the limit state (relay de-energized), the operator will be alerted to
the limit state by a message on the bottom line of the display.
• If the input that triggered the limit state is on the pen channel being displayed, the message will be
“LIMIT”.
• If the input that triggered the limit state is on the other pen channel, the message will be “Pn ERR”
(where n is the limit state’s pen channel). Pressing the “FUNC” key to switch channels will display
the “LIMIT” message.

Input and Output Calibration for Recorder with Display
5. Input and Output Calibration for Recorder with Display
5.1 Overview
Introduction
This section explains how to field calibrate analog inputs, as well as a 4 to 20 mA current output for a model
having a display and keypad.
Because the recorder stores both factory and field calibration values for inputs in memory, you can easily
select either factory or field calibration values for use by the recorder using the procedure given in
Subsection 4.5.2.5.
To calibrate an input:
• Determine the minimum and maximum range values to be used for calibration (see Subsection 5.2).
• Prepare to calibrate (see Subsection 5.3).
• Set up and wire the input for calibration (see Subsection 5.4).
• Use the parameters in the calibration set up group to store field calibration values in the recorder’s
memory (see Subsection 5.5).

Input and Output Calibration for Recorder with Display
5.6 Current Output Calibration
Introduction
Calibrate the recorder so that the output provides the required amount of current over the desired range. The
recorder can provide an output current range of from 0 to 20 milliamperes and can be calibrated at
4 mA for 0 % of output and 20 mA for 100 % of output, or at any other values between 0 mA and 20 mA.
Equipment needed
You will need a standard shop type milliammeter, with whatever accuracy is required, capable of measuring
0 milliamps to 20 milliamps.
Calibrator connections
Refer to Figure 5-6 and wire the recorder according to the procedure given in Table 5-10.

6.4 Maximizing Pen Life
Steps for maximizing pen life
Table 6-3 lists steps that will help maximize the life of recorder pens.
Table 6-3 Maximizing Pen Life
Step
160
Action
1
Store the chart paper in a cool, clean dry place where the temperature does not exceed 40 °C
(104 °F) and the humidity is below 65 % RH.
2
Do not expose the pen tip and chart paper to abrasive chemicals or dust that cause excessive
pen wear.
3
If the recorder is used in a dusty atmosphere, provide a positive ‘clean air purge’ to minimize
dust particle accumulation on the chart paper.
4
Periodically clean the pen arm using a cotton swab dipped in alcohol. This is more important
when the recorder is located in a dusty environment and no ‘clean air purge’ is used.
5
Never let the pen tip ride on the chart plate when the paper is not present. Use the pen lifter to
raise the arm when changing the paper.
6
Keep the door closed while recording.
7
Always cover the pen arm tip with its protective cap when storing or shipping the recorder.
8
Be sure that the chart paper lays flat against the chart plate. Any ripple in the paper will cause
light pen printing.
9
Be sure the chart hub assembly is pushed onto the motor shaft so that it is flush with the chart
plate.

8.2 Troubleshooting Aids
Self diagnostics
The software runs self-diagnostic tests to monitor the recorder’s general state. Tests are run when the unit
is powered up and as a background task during operation.
When tests run at power-up, the progress of the tests will be displayed as described in Subsection 8.3.1.
When the tests run in the background during normal operation, the display will not indicate the progress of
the tests. However, if the recorder fails a test, an error message will appear on the lower line of the display
as described in Subsection 8.3.4. Table 8-4 lists all the possible error messages, the reason for each, and
how to correct the problem.
Observable symptoms of failure
Other failures may occur that deal with the power, pen functions, chart rotation, output, or alarms. If erratic
operation is observed, refer to the failure symptoms in Table 8-5, then follow the appropriate
troubleshooting procedure in Subsection 8.5.
Check Installation
If a set of symptoms still persists, refer to Section 2 – Installation and Section 4 – Configuration, Startup,
and Operation of Recorder with Display to ensure that the recorder has been installed and set up properly.
Determine the software version before calling for technical support
Before calling for technical support, follow the procedure in Table 8-1 to determine the version of the
software in the recorder. This version information will assist the support team in diagnosing the problem.

8.3 Self Diagnostics
8.3.1 Power up tests
Tests run automatically
When the recorder is powered-up, self-diagnostics are run by the software.
As the tests in Table 8-2 are run, the display indicates whether the tests were passed or failed as described
below.
Table 8-2 Power-Up Diagnostic Tests
Lower Display
Upper Display
RAMTST
PASS or FAIL
CFGTST (configuration checksum)
PASS or FAIL
CALTST (working calibration)
PASS or FAIL
Status of tests displayed
As the tests are run, the lower line of the display shows which test is running. The upper line of the display
indicates the status. If any of these tests fail, “FAIL” appears momentarily in the upper display, then a
display test is run. The display changes to show the value of the process variable on the top line, and the
error message for the failed test on the second line.
In addition, if the control group parameter “CONTRL” has a value of “ENAB” when the test is failed, the
message “FAILSF” (failsafe) will alternate with error message for the test, and the controller will be in
manual mode. When the “FAILSF” message is displayed, it indicates that the recorder control output has
been driven to the value assigned to the control group “FAILSF” parameter.
By default, when the recorder is powered up the display will be for pen 1. Therefore, when the power up
tests run, the “PASS” and “FAIL” messages will apply only to the printed circuit assembly associated with
pen 1. However, in a 2-pen recorder the tests will also be run on the printed circuit assembly for pen 2. If
the pen 2 assembly fails one of the tests, the message “P2 ERR” will be displayed, along with any error
messages from the pen 1 tests.

Procedure
The status of self-diagnostic tests can be viewed using the procedure in Table 8-3.
Note that “FAILSF” is not a test. When “FAILSF YES” is displayed, it is an indication that the recorder is
using the value of the control set up group “FAILSF” parameter as the output value because the recorder
failed a self-test, or because the recorder detected an input failure while the input set up parameter
“BRNOUT” = “NONE”.

If the recorder fails one or more tests, the operator is alerted by the display of one or more messages.∗ One
message is displayed at a time on the lower line of the display.
If the problem is with the pen channel input or printed circuit assembly for which real time values are
currently on display, the appropriate error message for each failed test will be displayed. The display will
continue to cycle through the messages until the test is passed.
If the failure is for the pen channel not on display, then a message will alert the operator to the existence of
one or more error messages for the other pen. The message is “Pn ERR”, where n is the number of the pen
with errors not on display. Once the operator has toggled the display to the pen channel whose input or
printed circuit assembly was the source of the error, the display will cycle through the appropriate error
messages.
Error messages are listed in Table 8-4, along with the type of test to which each applies, the reason for the
failure, and how to correct the problem.
ATTENTION
In addition to error messages, the recorder will display special status messages when optional features
are active.
• If the lower display flashes “TUNING”, the recorder is in the process of automatically determining
tuning parameters using the Accutune II feature described in Appendix D.
• If the lower display flashes “RUN n” or “HOLD”, the recorder is executing setpoint program “n” as
described in Appendix C, and the run or hold action was initiated locally.
• If the lower display flashes “run n” or “hold”, the recorder is executing setpoint program “n”, and
the run or hold action was initiated remotely.
If you are familiar with the operation of the recorder models without display, you are aware that in those models the
red LED on the printed circuit assembly lights when the unit fails a self-diagnostic, or detects an out-of-range input.
The red LED has a different function in the models with display and keypad. It is not an indication of a
problem. In the models with display the red LED indicates that the display is currently interfacing with this PCA.
Rely on the error messages to notify you of a problem with a recorder with a display. (The flashing green LED is an
indication that the processor is active.)

A. Accuracy
A.1
Overview
Reference accuracy
The reference accuracy varies according to the type of input actuation.
• Typical reference accuracy for each type of input is supplied in Subsection A.2.
• Factory accuracy may be improved by performing an input calibration (field calibration) as described
in Section 5 (Field calibration requires model with display). The field-calibrated reference accuracy
for each type of input actuation is also supplied in Subsection A.2. The figures include reference
junction calibration of ± 0.01 degrees using the standard “ice bath” method of calibration.

Appendix C - Setpoint Ramp/Soak
Programming and Operation
C. Setpoint Ramp/Soak Programming and Operation
C.1
Overview
Introduction
As an option, the recorder can support the programming and execution of a setpoint program (profile). A
total of twenty-four program segments are available, twelve ramp and twelve soak segments. In a ramp
segment the setpoint value is changed as specified during configuration. The ramp is configured in terms
of ramp time or ramp rate, depending on how you have configured the RPUNIT (ramp unit) parameter.
During a soak segment the setpoint is held at the specified value.
Odd-numbered segments are always ramp segments. Even-numbered segments are always soaks. These
ramp and soak segments can be used in up to four programs. You designate the beginning and end
segments to determine where the program will start or stop.
• Every program must start with a ramp segment and end on a soak segment.
• Recorder must be set to use SP1 (setpoint 1)
• Only contiguous segments can be used by a program.
• There can be overlap between programs. For example, Program 1 could use Segments 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,
and 6. Program 2 could be configured to begin with Segment 5 and end with Segment 8.
This appendix contains instructions for setting up a setpoint program, and for executing the program at
runtime.
Note that Section 4 contains instructions for using the single setpoint ramp supported by all DR4300
models. The SPRAMP (single setpoint ramp) parameter described in Section 4 must be set to DIS
(disabled) if a setpoint program is to be used.
ATTENTION
If power is lost during execution of a program, upon power-up the recorder will use the last
setpoint value prior to the beginning of the setpoint program. The program is placed in hold at the
beginning. The Manual/Auto mode will be as configured under “PWR UP” in the “CONTROL”
group.

Program Contents
What you will configure
You will configure all the data that is relevant to each ramp and soak segment for a given setpoint versus
time program (profile). The recorder will prompt you through the sequence of segments and associated
functions. All prompts are listed, in sequence, in Table C-1.
Ramp unit
The ramp unit selection determines the engineering units for the ramp segments.
The selections are:
•
TIME = Hours:Minutes
•
EU-H = Degrees/Hour
OR
EU-M = Degrees/Minute
Recycle number
The recycle number allows the program to recycle a specified number of times from beginning to end.
•
Range = 0 to 99
Program state
The program state selection determines the program state after completion.
The selections are:
•
DIS = program is disabled
•
HOLD = program on hold
Ramp time or rate segments
A ramp segment is used to change the setpoint to the next soak setpoint value in the program.
•
Ramps are odd-numbered segments. Segment 1 will be the initial ramp.
•
Ramps are specifed in terms of either:
TIME* - Hours:Minutes
Range = 0-99 hr:59 min
or
EU-M* - Degrees/Minute
Range = 0 to 999
EU-H* - Degrees/Hour
* The selection of time or rate is made at prompt “RP UNIT”.
Set this prompt before entering any Ramp information.
ATTENTION
Entering “0” will imply an immediate step change in setpoint to the next soak.

DR4300 Circular Chart Recorder Product Manual

Appendix C - Setpoint Ramp/Soak
Programming and Operation
Soak segments
A soak segment is a combination of soak setpoint (value) and a soak duration (time).
•
Soaks are even-numbered segments.
•
Segment 2 will be the initial soak value and soak time.
•
The soak setpoint range value must be within the setpoint high and low range limits in engineering
units. (Specify the setpoint range with SP HI and SP LO in the control group as described in Section
4.)
•
Soak time is the duration of the soak and is determined in:
TIME - Hours:Minutes
•
Range = 0-99 hrs:59 min.
At the conclusion of program execution, the recorder will use the setpoint achieved during the last
soak segment.
Start segment number for each program
The start segment number designates the number of the first segment.
•
Range = 1 to 23 (odd-numbered segments only)
End segment number for each program
The end segment number designates the number of the last segment, it must be a soak segment (evennumbered).
•
Range = 2 to 24 (even-numbered segments only)
Guaranteed soak
A SOKDEV (soak deviation) parameter is provided. If its value is not zero, then soaking will be frozen for
each segment until the difference (plus or minus) between PV and SP is less than or equal to the value of
SOKDEV.
There are no guaranteed soaks whenever SOKDEV = 0. In this case, soak segments start timing soak
duration as soon as the soak setpoint is first reached, regardless of where the process variable remains
relative to the soak setpoint during the duration of the segment.
The decimal location corresponds to input 1 decimal selection.
Digital input (remote) operation
Program can be placed in RUN or HOLD state through a remote dry contact connected to optional digital
input terminals. The REMSW1 and REMSW2 parameters mus be configured to support this function. The
valid values for those parameters are:
•
RUN—contact closure places program in RUN state, and lower display will flash “run n”
•
HOLD—contact closure places program in HOLD state, and lower display will flash “hold”
Opening contact reverts to original state.

Appendix D - Using Accutune II
D. Using Accutune II
D.1
Overview
Introduction
Accutune II provides foolproof, trouble-free on-demand tuning in the recorder. No knowledge of the
process is required at start-up. The operator simply enters the desired setpoint and initiates the tuning. The
recorder immediately starts controlling to the setpoint while it identifies the process, calculates the tuning
constants and enters them into the tuning set up group, and begins PID control with the correct tuning
parameters. This works with any process, including integrating type processes, and allows retuning at a
fixed setpoint. The tuning sequence will cycle the recorder’s output two full cycles between 0 % and 100
% (or low and high output limits) while allowing only a very small process variable change above and
below the setpoint during each cycle.
• Accutune works for all control algorithms except ON/OFF.
• The recorder must be in Auto mode.
• Accutune works for integrating processes.
Enable/disable Accutune using the tuning set up group TUNE parameter described in Section 4.
Detailed instructions for using Accutune are provided in this appendix.

Starting and Stopping Tuning with Accutune II
Procedure
After “TUNE” has been enabled in the tuning set up group as described in Section 4, use the procedure in
Table D-1 to start tuning.
To abort tuning in progress, press the MAN/AUTO/RESET key to take the recorder out of Auto mode.
The message “AbRT” (abort) will be displayed as the value of tuning set up group parameter “AT ERR”.
The tuning parameters will retain the values they had at the start of the Accutune operation.

Appendix D - Using Accutune II
D.3
Using Accutune with Duplex (Heat/Cool) Control
Introduction
“TUNE” can be done for applications using Duplex (Heat/Cool) control.
During tuning, Accutune II assumes SP 1 will cause a Heating demand, and then the calculated tuning
parameters will be automatically entered as the first set of PID constants. Likewise, it assumes tuning at
Local SP 2 will cause a Cooling demand, and the cooling parameters will be entered as the second set of
PID constants.
Procedure
After “TUNE” has been enabled in the tuning set up group as described in Section 4, use the procedure in
Table D-2 to start tuning. Note that control group parameter “NumSPs” must be set to “TWO” to enable
the second setpoint.
To abort tuning in progress, press the MAN/AUTO/RESET key to take the recorder out of Auto mode.
The message “AbRT” (abort) will be displayed as the value of tuning set up group parameter “AT ERR”.
The tuning parameters will retain the values they had at the start of the Accutune operation.
