An alarm occurs when the difference in the input values of two channels is
greater than or equal to the specified value.
An alarm occurs when the difference in the input values of two channels is
less than or equal to the specified value.
The rate-of-change of the measured values is checked over a certain time
(interval). An alarm occurs if the rate-of-change of the measured value in the
rising direction is greater than or equal to the specified value.
The rate-of-change of the measured values is checked over a certain time
(interval). An alarm occurs if the rate-of-change of the measured value in the
falling direction is greater than or equal to the specified value.
An alarm occurs when the measured value remains above the alarm value for
the specified time period.
An alarm occurs when the measured value remains below the alarm value for
a specified time period.
* Can be specified on channels set to delta computation.
** T and t can be selected when the alarm delay function is enabled in Basic Setting mode.
Alarm Value
Alarm is generated using the specified value as the boundary. The selectable range of
alarm values vary depending on the input mode and range.
Relay
To output relays, select the output relay number. Otherwise, select NONE.
Alarm Delay
An alarm occurs when the measured value remains above or below the alarm value for a

SUM Scale
When the mode is SUM, set the sum scale.
SUM sums the data every computation interval. For flow values that have units /s, /min, /h,
or /day, a simple summation results in the actual value not matching the computed result,
because the scan interval and the unit of the input values are different. In such cases, set
the sum scale to match the unit of the input value. In effect, the sum value with the same
unit as that of the input value is calculated.
3
For example, if the scan interval is 1 s, and the input value is 100 m /min, a simple
summation would add 100 every 1 s resulting in 6000 after one minute. However, if the
sum scale is set to /min, then 1 s/60 s is multiplied every scan interval before the value is
3
added giving a result with an m /min unit.
OFF: Simply sums the measured values.
/s:
Sums by converting the measured values to a value over 1 second.
/min: Sums by converting the measured values to a value over 1 minute.
/h:
Sums by converting the measured values to a value over 1 hour.
/day: Sums by converting the measured values to a value over 1 day.

Using CopyTool
Overview of CopyTool
1
CopyTool is a software program that copies settings from one recorder to another.
Differences between CopyTool and the Configuration Software
The Configuration software supports the latest version of the recorder as of the purchase
date.
CopyTool copies the source settings and sends them to the destination recorder
regardless of the version of either the source or destination recorder. As long as the
specifications of the copy source and copy destination recorders are the same, the
settings can be copied successfully.
This function works as follows.
• A settings file is received from the recorder and saved.
• The saved settings file is sent to the copy destination recorder.

The settings that can be copied are as follows.
• Basic Setting mode settings
However, this excludes the dot printing or pen position adjustment setting.
• Setting mode settings
Note
• CopyTool and the RXA10 Configuration software can be run simultaneously.
• Only one instance of CopyTool can be run at a time.

Using CopyTool
This software runs under the same environment as the RXA10 Configuration software.
