Introduction
The PACE Pressure Indicator measures both pneumatic and hydraulic pressures and
displays, on a colour touch-screen, the measured pressure and instrument status. The
touch-screen enables selections and settings in measuring modes. The instrument can be
operated remotely through communication interfaces.
Figure 1-1 PACE1000 General view
The rear of the instrument houses all the electrical and pressure input connections. The
electrical connections provide a power supply, serial and parallel communication interfaces,
pressure ports and option ports.
The instrument can be used as follows:
• Free-standing instrument positioned on a horizontal surface.
• Rack-mounted in a standard 19 inch rack using the rack-mount option kit.
• Panel mount using the panel-mount option kit.

a.
Connect the instrument to the electrical supply.
b.
Inspect the pneumatic hoses for damage, ingress of dirt and moisture.
3.
Before use, the instrument should be tested.
4.
Review and become familiar with the procedure before starting a process on a
component or system.
3.2 Power-up sequence
The following sequences of operation shows the instrument display.
Note: The following sequence is an example, the values and selections displayed depend on the
range(s) and options enabled in the instrument.
1.
2.
3.
4.

6.
Set the power supply to ON.
The display shows the power-up sequence.
The instrument carries out a self-test.
a.
If the test finds a fault, the display
shows an error (Ref: Fault Finding and
Testing, Section 5).
If the self-test is successful the system
enables the touch screen and changes to
measure mode.

Note: In the Airfield Task Q codes can be used. These units are standardised three letter codes and
are available in aeronautical units (feet and metres). The codes used are:
• QFE - Atmospheric pressure at sea level, corrected for temperature and adjusted to
airfield elevation. When set on the altimeter it reads height.
• QNE - Atmospheric pressure at Sea level in International Standard Atmosphere (ISA)
1013.25 mbar.
• QFF - Barometric pressure at a place, reduced to Mean Sea Level (MSL) using the
actual temperature at time of observation as mean temperature.
• QNH - Atmospheric pressure at Mean Sea Level (MSL) (may be local, measured
pressure or a Regional Forecast Pressure (RFP). When set on altimeter it reads
altitude.

Testing and Fault Finding
5.1
Introduction
This section details the standard serviceability test. Table 5.1 lists possible faults, and the
response.
The PACE1000 contains a self-test and diagnosis system that continuously monitors the
performance of the unit. At power-up, the system performs a self-test.
5.2
Standard Serviceability Test
The following procedure shows if the unit is serviceable and checks functions and facilities of
the PACE1000.
Procedure
CAUTION
Always release pressure before disconnecting pressure equipment from the outlet port.
1.
2.
Connect the instrument (Ref: Installation, Section 2) Connect a UUT.
After power-up, select measure set-up.
a.
Select the required units of pressure measurement from the measure set-up
menu.
b.
Apply a known pressure to one of the sensors. Make sure the instrument
pressure reading is within tolerance, stated in the specification (Ref: SDS).
c.
Carefully release the applied pressure to atmospheric pressure.
d.
Make sure the instrument pressure reading shows atmospheric or ambient
pressure.
e.
Test complete.
After a successful serviceability test the instrument is ready for use.
5.3
Ethernet Testing
1. Connect PACE Ethernet port to a PC.
2. Check the PACE Ethernet LAN indication turns green after a few seconds.
3. Set the PACE Ethernet address to Auto IP.
4. Record the PACE auto IP address (The test screen below has auto IP address 3.115.21.237)
5. Open the PC command prompt screen.
6. Using the “ping” command, ping the PACE IP address (see screen capture below). The PACE
will reply if operating correctly.

The PACE1000 pressure indicator requires a set of connections with the exception of the
reference connection, this provides a reference to atmosphere for gauge sensors and
barometric sensors.
The gas density and type does not affect the accuracy of pressure measurement, assuming
that the UUT is at the same level (height) as the indicator or gas head correction is
accurately set.

Reference Port
The reference port provides the negative pressure to the gauge sensor and to the barometric
reference (option). Gauge sensors use this port identified as “REF”. For gauge sensors
(without a barometric reference) small pressures can be applied (Ref: Specification, Section
6-7). All other pressure measurement requires the port to be opened to atmosphere. When in
gauge mode, the instrument shows and controls the pressure difference between the
reference port and the output port.
Note: This is not a true differential operation as there is no true differential calibration of the
sensor.
The transducer of the barometric reference option senses atmospheric pressure via the
reference port, when enabled the port MUST be open to atmosphere.
The reference connection should be actively used (differential connection option) for
precision low pressure measurement. The instrument measures pressure relative to the
pressure at the reference port.
An atmospheric pressure change causes the indicator to adjust the pressure and appears at
the pressure output as apparent instability. To keep a stable controlled pressure, the
reference port should be restricted. Using a reference port restrictor (snubber), short term
ambient pressure variations can be prevented from affecting indicator performance.
The indicator and UUT references should be connected together (using the optional
differential connection kit) to provide a common reference to atmosphere.

Pressure zero
During use, the instrument pressure sensor can show small zero shifts caused by time and
temperature changes. Regular “zeroing” increases measuring precision.
Process
Selects display processing features that change the reading, as follows:
%:
Pressure can be displayed reading as a percentage of full-scale or as a percentage
of a specified span.
Filter:
The displayed reading can be filtered by a custom low pass filter or the filter can
be disabled (default disabled). The indicator works at a speed independent of the
filter time constant.
Tare:
A specific tare value can be selected or the current displayed pressure reading can
be “captured” as the tare value. The display shows the selected tare value in the
pressure window.
Peak:
Maximum, minimum and average display of pressure readings.
Task
Selecting Task enables a set of pre-determined functions and software enabled optional
functions.

Supervisor Set-up
The Supervisor menu provides facilities for programming settings. These are usually made
during installation as follows:
Important Note: A PIN protects the Supervisor menu against unauthorised use. Each
instrument on delivery contains the factory set PIN (0268). To continue
protecting the supervisor set-up menu the PIN should be changed as soon
as possible.
Alarms
An alarm can be set to trigger when the pressure exceeds the high alarm or falls below the
low alarm. A buzzer sounds when the alarm triggers and the alarm symbol (bell) appears on
the display.
Comms
Selects the communication port parameters and simultaneous operation of the RS232, IEEE
488 interface and Ethernet.
Note: PACE1000 Lab view drivers are available for download from:
http://sine.ni.com/apps/utf8/niid_web_display.download_page?p_id_guid=B6F9A6B06AEA01F1E0440021287E65E6
The user can select appropriate settings for communicating with the control computer (PC)
and the required command protocol.
Referring to the PACE SCPI communications user manual there are three commands that
can be used to retrieve pressure readings from the PACE100X:
:INST:SENS[x]:READ?
Where x = 1 to 8 set in the comms range menu
:SENS:PRES?
Returns the reading top main display window with display filtering
(2Hz update rate) applied
:DISP[x]:WIND?
Where [x] = display (1=top main, 2=middle status area & 3= bottom
function area) window
To obtain fastest readings you must use the following SCPI command :INST:SENS[x]:Read?
This command returns two readings, a filtered reading and a raw reading (unfiltered
reading) from internal sensors, thus giving the user a choice of which reading to use which is
most suitable for their application.
e.g.
TX> :Inst:Sens2:Read?
RX> :INST:SENS2:READ "993.539148733033 993.543837356372"
Note: Raw reading returned from IDOS sensors is “0” as a raw readings cannot be obtained
from IDOS sensors.
