Section 2 - Installation
2.1
Unpacking
Remove the packing list and verify that you have received all your equipment.
If you have any questions about the shipment, please call our Customer Service
Department.
We can also be reached on the Internet.
When you receive the shipment, inspect the container and equipment for any
signs of damage. Note any evidence of rough handling in transit. Immediately
report any damage to the shipping agent.
NOTE:
The carrier will not honor any damage claims unless all shipping material is saved for
inspection. After examining and removing contents, save packing material and carton in
the event reshipment is necessary.
The following items are supplied in the box:
• BB-4A Blackbody Calibration Source
• Users Manual
• Calibration Certificate
• Power Cord
• Reference Port Cord Plug Connector
• Cavity Wood Shipping Plug (remove before use)
2.2
Mounting
Mount the unit on a bench, table top or shelf in a horizontal position and operate
at least ten inches from any air obstructions to the fan, front panel, rear panel,
bottom and top of the unit, in an ambient environment between the specified 0
to 50°C (32 to 122°F).
NOTE:
Your unit was shipped to you with a wood plug installed in the heater cavity to prevent
damage during shipping. This plug must be removed before using your calibrator.
2.3
Ambient Temperature
The target plate of the BB-4A can achieve any temperature within the specified
temperature range when being operated in normal ambient temperature
environments. The maximum specified heater cavity temperature of 982°C
(1800°F) can be achieved over the entire specified ambient temperature range.

2.4
Power Connection
Standard (120 VAC~, 50/60 Hz models)
The BB-4A comes with a standard North American 3-prong AC power cord. Do
not use any other power cord other than the one provided. This cord provides
the proper grounding and has been safety tested by the proper safety agencies.
Domestic (230 VAC~, 50/60 Hz models)
On 230 VAC~, 50Hz models a European style power cord with the proper
color code and approvals is provided with stripped wire ends for connection to
the proper connector used in your country or local area. This connector is not
provided.
CAUTION:
• Line voltage variations are not to exceed ±10% of the rated input voltage.
• Electrical connections and wiring should be performed only by suitably trained
personnel.

NOTE:
NOTE:
P.I.D. Control:
Proportional, integral, derivative control ( P.I.D.) is a temperature control algorithm used
in high-end temperature controllers. The controller causes the process to attain the desired
temperature by turning the process on or off. The process may be a heater or refrigerator.
As the process temperature approaches the setpoint temperature the hot or cold process
will be pulsed to reduce the corrective measures and minimize overshooting. The
controller provides a visual representation of the process status through LED indicators. An
indicator may be lit continuously, blink or shut off entirely to indicate that the process is
on, being pulsed, or off, respectively.

The customer connects the power cord to the AC Power Input. As a safety
precaution, the power cord cannot be connected if the fuse compartment is open.
Refer to Section 5.3 for information on fuse replacement.
Reference Probe Connection:
The reference probe enables the user to monitor the target plate temperature
with an external instrument. A “K” type thermocouple reference output is
provided.
RS232 Communications Port:
The female DB-9 port allows the customer to make a 3-wire RS232 interface with
the BB-4A. A detailed description of this port is described in Section 4.
3.3
Thermal Reset Switch
In the event that the target plate temperature and/or ambient temperature
exceeds the acceptable limit, this reset switch will pop open. The controller will
appear to be demanding a temperature increase but the target plate temperature
will not rise. Let the unit cool down, completely. Press the switch located on the
right side of the unit, behind the carry handle until a click is heard. If this has no
effect refer to the troubleshooting section.
3.4
Changing the Temperature Setpoint
The layout of the front panel is shown in Figure 2. The BB-4A incorporates a PID
digital setpoint controller. The upper display indicates the blackbody target plate
temperature known as (PV) Process Variable, while the lower display indicates
the programmed setpoint known as (SV) Setpoint Variable. Making changes to
the setpoint, units of measure (°F/°C) and communication settings (BAUD, etc.)

setpoint temperature to advance more quickly to a desired value. Three scanning
speeds are provided: slow, medium and fast. The minimum and maximum setpoints
are locked.

Changing the Controller Parameter Settings
The BB-4A operates at its optimum performance when left with its factory
parameter settings. The only internal parameter that the operator should need to
change is the engineering units (°F or °C), or serial communications parameters.

BB-4A Blackbody Calibrator
Section 4 RS232 Communication
The RS232 port provides the customer with bi-directional data transfer via a
three-conductor cable consisting of signal ground, receive input, and transmit
output. It is recommended that less than fifty feet of shielded cable be used
between the computer and this instrument. This will assure performance of
the BB-4A to EN61326, under the E.M.C. Note that multiple instruments cannot
be tied to the same port in this configuration. The RS232 port is optically isolated
to eliminate ground loop problems.
Below is a pinout diagram for the serial port of the BB-4A as well as the pinout
for a 9-pin PC serial port. Use a straight DB9 (female) to DB9 (male) connector
cable to connect your computer to the BB-4A. The cable should be attached when
only when the computer and BB-4A are off.
Only parameters in the parameter list should be modified or queried via the
serial port. Other parameters should be viewed or queried from the controller,
directly. It is highly recommended that baud rate for the controller be modified
on the controller, directly. Note that both the BB-4A and the computer must be
communicating with the same serial communications parameters to establish a
working communication link.
The serial communications feature can be tested using terminal emulation
package. Note that this controller does not time out waiting for the next
character to be transmitted. Be sure not to use the XON/XOFF or hardware
handshaking. Lastly, it should be noted that following a complete transmission
to the BB-4A, a response it sent back. If the message was valid, the changed or
queried parameter is echoed back (following the same format). If the message
was not according to acceptable format or was attempting to force a parameter
out of range, an “ERROR” message is echoed.
