General Description:
The iDRN Series of DIN rail-mountable signal conditioners
are available for Thermocouple, RTD, Strain, Process, AC
Voltage, AC Current and Pulse/Totalizer input types.
The factory calibrated signal conditioners are ideal for all
process and power monitoring applications, they feature
3-way isolation, high accuracy input, programmable outputs,
and are excellent front end interfaces for programmable logic
controllers or data acquisition systems. For maximum user
configurability the signal conditioners allow complete inputoutput scaling via a RS-232 connection to any PC or PLC.
Software Description:
The signal conditioner configuration program is a MS
DOS/Windows program (this manual is for the Windows
version). It is designed especially for the iDRN Series Signal
Conditioner. This program will run on any PC with Windows
application and will start automatically.
Free Serial Communication software and ActiveX Controls
are on the CD-ROM enclosed with this shipment.

Introduction:
The AC current input signal conditioners are high
performance instruments that measure AC currents in 4
ranges with dedicated inputs. The current ranges are 10
mA, 100 mA, 1 Amp and 5 Amps. Key features of the signal
conditioners are built in internal current shunts, scalable
analog output and a simple RS232 interface for scaling analog
output and range selection. The RS232 interface may also be
used for digital transmission of the input signal to a computer
or a PLC. Additional features include three way isolation
between DC power, signal input and analog output/RS232.
J1
Operation:
Note: When connecting a current signal, ensure that the input
signal current is less than or equal to the rating indicated on
signal input label.
THERE ARE NO PROTECTIONS AGAINST
OVERCURRENT AND THE UNIT WILL BE DAMAGED IF
THE INPUT CURRENT EXCEEDS THE MAXIMUM
RATING.
PLEASE

CONNECTION SPECIFIED IN THE SECTION BELOW .
THIS DEVICE MUST ONLY BE INSTALLED BY A
PROFESSIONAL ELECTRICIAN.
Power Input and Analog Output Setup:
To connect the signal input proceed as follows:
1. Connect a DC power supply with an output voltage
between 10 to 32 Volt DC to the signal conditioner (J1).
Note: If power supply used has current limiting, it may not
be able to power the signal conditioners if the available output
voltage is around 10 Volt, since the peak current may reach 1
to 5 Amp for a few milliseconds.

2. Determine the maximum current to be measured.3.
Determine the appropriate input connection. i.e. 10 mA, 100 mA
have the same input, 1 Amp and 5 Amps have their own
dedicated input. The return is common to all inputs.
4. Ensure that if the selected range is different from the default
(5A) then change the internal range by using the Setup
Software and select the appropriate range.
5. Connect the signal input to screw terminal, and ensure that
the screws are tight. Failure to do so may cause electrical
shock should the wires become loose and come out of the
screw terminal.
6. To verify that the set up is correct, you may connect a DVM
to the analog output. Once connected, power the signal
conditioner and apply a known current from an AC source to
input. Measure and compare with expected values. To
custom scale the analog output proceed to the next step.
7. To view/change the scaling that relates the analog output to
signal input: connect the RS232 output of the signal conditioner
to an available serial port of a computer. The cable and the DB9
or DB25 connectors are available as an option.
8. Turn on the computer, start Windows 3.0 or higher and run
the Signal Conditioner Configuration Setup Program.
9. Start the configuration program, you need to indicate which
serial port is to be used for serial communication by checking
the appropriate check box on the opening menu.
Note: It is not necessary to know the serial communication
protocol. i.e. baud rate, parity, 7/8 data bit and stop bit; the
program will determine this information automatically.
However, it is good practice to mark the protocols used on the
signal conditioner label if different from default.
10. Once the program starts it will automatically detect the
signal conditioner configuration and will display a window of
available options. To view the signal input click on the
display on/off.
11. To change analog output scaling choose analog output
scaling and enter the desired values.
12. Once the custom scaling is finished, ensure that Send
Configuration is clicked, otherwise the changes will not take effect.
13. The input/output scaling may be fine tuned, while both
communication and analog output are active. You may make
a change to the analog output in the configuration program,
and watch the DVM connected to analog output of the signal
conditioner follow the new settings.
14. You may save or print a particular configuration by
selecting the file menu. It’s always a good practice to both
print and save the scaling of each signal conditioner.
15. If the program is not able to establish communication then
an error message is displayed. This happens either when the
wrong serial port is specified or when the cable is
disconnected.
16. The procedure to disable Continuous Mode and change
the iDRN to Command Mode is as follows:
Using HyperTerminal, or any serial communication program,
type: Ctrl + S
To change the device to Command Mode, type: ^AE
To change the Bus Format Register, type: *W0814
To reset the device,type: *Z01
Cycle power to the unit.
