1. INTRODUCTION
The MultiCONT unit is a universal interface between NIVELCO’s HART-capable intelligent level transmitters and the other elements of the process control system
like the PC-s , PLC-s, displays and the actuators. Besides its role as an interface, the MultiCONT ensures the powering of the 2-wire transmitters while being capable
of complex control tasks. The MultiCONT unit supports communication with a maximum of 15 standard or 4 Ex certified NIVELCO’s HART-capable 2- and / or 4-wire
transmitters. If MultiCONT is used with NIVELCO’s MicroTREK microwave level transmitters the maximum number of transmitters in a loop should not exceed 8 pcs.
for normal transmitters and 2 pcs. for Ex version transmitters. If a system contain more transmitters than one MultiCONT can handle, further MultiCONT units can be
wired in series via an RS485 line. Remote programming of the transmitters and downloading of the parameters and measured data is possible using the MultiCONT.
The various outputs such as 4 … 20 mA, relays and digital outputs can be controlled using measured values and new values calculated from the measured values.
Measured values (Primary Value and three additional values) are able to be logged.
Large DOT matrix LCD panel facilitate a wide variety of display functions including tank content visualisation. The type and number of outputs of the basic unit can be
expanded with external (relay and/or current output) PJK-100 type Universal Interface Modules. The total number of relays included in the MultiCONT and in the
modules must not be more than 64, while that of the analog outputs (4…20 mA outputs) can be maximum 16. A further restriction is that there can be a maximum of
32 Universal Interface Modules.
Explosion proof certified versions of the MultiCONT should be installed outside the hazardous area.

1.1. THE HART SYSTEM
The HART (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer – bus addressable field devices) is a digital communication protocol developed by ROSEMOUNT for industrial
measurement applications. A digital signal of small amplitude is placed on the widely used standard 4…20mA output current, and due to its symmetric sinusoidal
nature and its small amplitude, it does not affect the accuracy of the output current. Since no extra cable is needed for signal transfer, the already existing cable can
be used to realize the transfer. The identification, programming and querying of the transmitters can be done using this communication.
Iout [mA]
This diagram shows the output signal of a
4…20mA transmitter (device) and the
superimposed HART signal, which is essentially a
0.5 mA modulation of the output current..

Io
Io – 0.5 mA
The enlarged picture shows that HART
communication uses frequency modulation, and
logical „1” is assigned to 1200 Hz, while „0” is
assigned to 2200 Hz. This is called FSK
(Frequency-Shift Keying) modulation. The
communication is realized with systematic series
of impulses above described.
1.1.1. The Communication
The HART communication is basically a master-slave type, which means that the transmitter – slave – only sends a response when the master (of which there can be
only one in the system) sends a query. The master can be a Hand-held Communicator, a PC with a HART modem or a universal interface, in this case, a MultiCONT
(naturally, only one can be active). The communication uses standard commands (see chapter 1.1.3)
1.1.2. The structure of the system
The system must contain a 230..1000 Ω resistor to guarantee that the HART signal of small amplitude will not load the power supply of unknown output impedance.
prw1101a0600p_07  6 / 105
1.1.2.1 Point-to-point connection
When a master (communicator or HART modem with PC or MultiCONT) and a slave are alone in a system, we talk of a point-to-point connection

RS485
In this case the flowing current is the output current of the transmitters, so if permitted by the loop voltage, even a local indicator can be included into the loop.
Essentially, the minimal voltage specified in the manual must be kept on the terminals of the transmitters.
Since the speed of transfer is 1200bit/sec, communication is slow, because the master queries and the slave responds. This can be speeded up if the querying is left
out, and the slave responds continuously every given period of time until the master stops the transfer in the break between 2 data transmissions. This is called “burst
mode”.
prw1101a0600p_07  7 / 105
1.1.2.2 Multipoint connection (Multidrop). Multiple slaves connected in parallel.
HART’s addressing system can handle 15 devices whereby they are wired in parallel. In this case, the current is the sum of the currents of all the devices in the loop,
which has not informative value. So in this case, the output current of the transmitters should be set to multidrop mode, which means a constant current of 4mA. This
automatically happens when the polling address is set between 1..15. (if the polling address is 0, then we should have only one transmitter with 4…20mA output, if
the polling address is 1…15, then we will have a constant 4 mA). There is a deviation possibility for transmitters whose output current can be programmed to an
arbitrary fixed value, however in this case, the minimal voltage drop on the terminal of the transmitters must be the minimum specified voltage, otherwise the
transmitter(s) will not be able to work (measure or respond)

Software version of the device (see device manual)
Hardware version of the device (see device manual)
Apart from this, they provide the specification of the HART version according to which the device’s commands work
1.1.4. HART Command set
We have seen how to build up a HART system. Using the HART commands, we can decide what the devices should do. Naturally, an ultrasonic transmitter needs
commands different from those of a temperature transmitter or maybe a valve, so quite a large number of commands would be needed. Every command has a onebyte identifier. The 31st command enables expansion, and in this case the next 2 bytes form the code of a command (0…65535). HART commands can be divided in
to 3 classes:
 universal commands 0..30
 general commands 32..121
 device-specific commands 128..253
In all cases, the commands contain an address (this can be short, long address, TAG), which determines the corresponding device.
Two devices with the same address cannot be connected together!!
prw1101a0600p_07  9 / 105
1.1.4.1 Universal commands
These are commands understood by all devices, and to which all devices give the same reply.
0. Read unique identifier
the addressed device provides the following in it’s reply:
 Manufacturer’s code (provided by the HART foundation, see appendix)
 Product code (provided by manufacturer, see chapter 5.2.1.1)
 Universal command table code ( HART 5 )
 Device ID
 Software version
 Hardware version
 Device status
1. Read primary variable
This reads the digital value (Primary Value) that the transmitter sends to the 4…20 mA output.
The unit also belongs to the numeric value.
2. Read output current in mA and in percent of range
3. Read output current and four dynamic variables
The primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary variables are transmitted.
The secondary, tertiary and quaternary variables are specified in the manual of the given device.
6. Modify (short) polling address (Write polling address)
If there is more than one device in the loop (multidrop), each device must have a different address.
In this case, the address should be configured before connecting the device to avoid errors caused by devices with the same addresses replying at the same
time.
11. Read unique device identifier associated with tag
Devices are queried based on their short TAG and not based on their addresses.
As a result, there must not be more than one device with exactly the same short TAG.
prw1101a0600p_07  10 / 105
12. Read device message
This reads the 32 character message stored in the non-volatile memory of the device (e.g. T18 35% HCL TANK)
13. Read the 8 character ”short TAG”, 16 character descriptor and date
14. Read PV sensor information
15. Read output information
16. Read final assembly number
17. Write 32 character message
18. Write the 8 character ”short TAG”, 16 character descriptor and date
19. Write final assembly number
1.1.4.2 General commands
These commands do not need to be understood by all devices. If not understood, nothing happpens, however, if understood, then it must be interpreted according to
the standard. Many such commands exist, the most important ones are the following:
 34: damping (writing settling time)
 35: measurement range (writing of upper and lower limits, and/or dimension)
 36: Upper limit now! (sets the upper limit – 20 mA)
 37: Lower limit now! (sets the lower limit – 4 mA)
 40: setting constant current output (can be very useful during testing)
 41: Device self-test, sends back the result.
 42: Master reset (setting factory default)
 50: Reading assignment status of the primary variable (PV), the secondary variable (SV), the tertiary variable (TV) and the quaternary variable (QV). This can
not always be read unambiguously, in most cases it can be found in the manual of the device.
 109: Switching „Burst” mode on and off.
1.1.4.3 Device –specific commands
These commands are specified by the manufacturer. A description of the commands can be found in the device manual.

After loosening and removing screws fastening the
cover the cables can be connected. The same cable
should not be used for AC and DC as well as for SELV

For wiring of the transmitters shielded, twisted cable
pair (STP) should be used with the length depending
on the number of connected units and the electrical
properties of cable.

Shielding of the connecting cable between the transmitter and the controller should be grounded at one end, connected either to the internal or external part of the
earthing screw.
Intrinsically safe (Ex) transmitters should be connected through the terminals L+, L– to the controller. These points are galvanically isolated from the other parts of the
electronics. Power supply for the Ex transmitter is current-, voltage- and power-limited.

The most important rule is that the data transfer line has to be closed at both ends with a resistor, at points farthest from each other. The value of the terminal resistor
depends on the wave impedance of the connecting cable. The interface contains a 120  terminal resistor, so please use a cable with appropriate impedance.
A configuration, whereby there aren’t 2 terminal resistors, or where the 2 terminal resistors are not at the farthest points from each other is a bad configuration.
In such cases, especially if the data transfer cable is too long, data transfer errors are likely to occur.
The Universal Interface Modules should be connected one after another on one cable pair. Star-shaped topology is forbidden. The maximum length of the cable is
1000m, but in this case a cable with shielded, twisted pair of wires (STP, Shilded Twisted Pair) must be used. The capacitance of the cable should be less than
100 pF/m. The Universal Interface Modules connected to a system must each be given different addresses (0…31), see 5.2.1.2.

5. PROGRAMMING OF MultiCONT
During programming the following can be performed:
 Automatic detection of devices (transmitters) connected to the MultiCONT, and putting them into the list of devices. Devices not on the list are part of the
system but are unable to communicate with the MultiCONT (see 5.2.3 Main menu / MultiCONT config / DEV detect).
 Activation, inactivation of devices (transmitters) (See 5.2.3 Main menu / Devices).Theoretically all devices in the system should be working. (whether in the
list or not). Devices in the list automatically become active. Inactivation can be used to temporarily disable devices from the system.
 Activation, inactivation of relays and current outputs (see Attachment 3 and 4)
 Relays and current outputs of the MultiCONT should also be activated (see Attachment 3 and 4)
Assignment of the MultiCONT outputs (relays, current outputs) to devices (transmitters)
 Formation of functional values (difference of 2 measured values, sum or average of 2 or more measured values)
 Remote programming of devices, although it is practical to program the devices in the laboratory before installation and wiring.
(parameters of the transmitters e.g. P01, P02, etc. will be used in this Manual in the same way as described in the Installation and User’s Manual)
 Programming of MultiCONT outputs (Relay and current output parameters of the MultiCONT will be identified as RP1, RP2, RP3 and CR1, CR2, CR3
respectively).
The programming of systems involving the MultiCONT universal interface assumes a sound knowledge of both the HART standard and the programming
of the connected devices.
During programming full scale of operation such as measurement, polling of devices, functioning of the relays and current outputs will be maintained.
Modifications will be automatically saved upon returning back to measurement mode.
If the MultiCONT is left in Programming mode, it will automatically return to Measurement mode 5 minutes after the last key was pressed (modifications
will be saved!).

5.2. STEPS OF PUTTING INTO OPERATION A MultiCONT NETWORK
Steps of putting into operation:






Preparing transmitters and Universal Interface Modules. (see chapter 5.2.1) Transmitters should be given a unique „Short address”. If there are multiple
transmitters, then the address should not be zero!
Adding the devices in the loop into the device list. see chapter 5.2.3
Configuration of the state of the transmitters. Devices (transmitters) placed in the device list during the detection process automatically become active i.e.
the MultiCONT queries them constantly. This can be avoided by setting their state to be inactive (see chapter 5.2.3)
Detecting Universal Interface Modules: The detected modules (relays, current outputs) become inactive, meaning that MultiCONT does not control them.
Relay configuration: The relay should be assigned to one or more transmitters (sources), the mode of operation (function) should be specified, the
switching points should be configured (parameters RP1…RP3), and then it should finally be activated. See chapter 5.7.
Current output configuration: Similar to the relay configuration, see chapter 5.8.
prw1101a0600p_07  29 / 105
5.2.1. Preparation of the Transmitters and the Universal Interface Modules.
5.2.1.1 Preparation of the Transmitters
During this procedure, programming of the current outputs and “Short
address” (see Manual of the transmitters) of the transmitters should be
checked in laboratory circumstances. The loop current of the normal (nonEx) MultiCONT is max. 60 mA, and it is max. 22 mA for the Ex certified
version. If the loop current exceeds this value the voltage at the terminals
of the transmitters will be decreased to be too low for the transmitters to
start to operate. (There may happen that the transmitters could operate,
but HART signals will be distorted because the decreased terminal voltage
and communication may be failed or not be able to work.) In networks with
only one transmitter the short address of the unit can be 0, so the output of
the transmitter operates in 4-20mA range. In case of multiple transmitters
the short addresses should be set between 1…15 and then the current
output of the transmitters will be automatically limited to 4mA. The value of
this can be overrided by the fixed output current parameter (see Manual of
the transmitter). It is really important that loop current must not exceed the
given limit value. In addition to this, two or more instruments must not have
the same “Sort address” or “Long address” in order to provide error-free
operation.
Modification of the “Short address” can be performed with Eview
configuration software, or with the MultiCONT. In this case transmitters
should be connected and detected one by another and set the appropriate
“Short address”. The “Long address” of the device is given by the
manufacturer, which cannot be modified by the user.

5.2.1.2 Preparing of the Universal Interface Modules
The MultiCONT can be expanded by a maximum of
32 Universal Interface Modules. They can be
differentiated from each other using their „Short
Addresses”. Two or more modules with the same
address must not be in one system. Configuration
is possible using the row of DIP switches that can
be found on the top of the modules (0…31).

prw1101a0600p_07  31 / 105
5.2.3. Putting the MultiCONT into operation
Switching on initiates a 40 sec test process, during which MultiCONT tests the integrity of the memory where its settings are stored (See 5.9 The Boot Process).
If everything goes perfectly, then the following
No HART device
message appears on the screen, implying that the device table - the object
of the query - is empty yet.
To choose a programming Language (English, German, French, Hungarian) select the Language menu item under ”Main menu”/”MultiCONT
config”/”Language” using the  and  buttons and confirm it using the  button.
From here on, the device will function using the selected language.
To detect devices in the loop select the ”Main menu”/”MultiCONT config”/” DEV detect” program.
It is essential not to confuse the Short address with the List-tag of the units. In order to make possible to search and identify HART-capable devices, it is necessary
to assign Short addresses ranging from 1 …. 15 to the devices during their (laboratory) programming. MultiCONT however registers the devices on the basis of the
List-tags ranging from 1, … 8, 9, A, B, … F.
At this stage configure the settings specific to the functioning of the system (display, backlight, etc.) under “Main menu” / “MultiCONT config”. See chapter 5.4.
Relays (see chapter 5.7) and current outputs (see chapter 5.8) should be programmed in accordance with the requirements of the application.
Settings can be protected via “Main menu”/“MultiCONT config”/”Password” with a secret code (software protection) and by using the program protection switch
K1 (hardware protection) on the back of the front panel (see chapter 7).

prw1101a0600p_07  35 / 105
MultiCONT detects devices in accordance to the Short address (that is why two or more devices must not have the same Short address)
After detection however, query will be performed using the Long address that consists of the following three parts:
 Manufacturer’s ID: (See APPENDIX 1. At the end of the Manual (for NIVELCO products it is:151)
 Device type ID: identification number of the device type (see chapter 5.2.1.1)
 Device ID: number generated during production (0…16777215)
When detection stops with the „Same Long address” error message there are two ways to identify the devices with the same Long address
 Devices should be removed one by one until DEV detect program can run to completion.
Obviously the address of one of those devices remained in the loop is the same as the address of the unit last removed.
Then reconnecting the devices one by one again, after detection, the Factory ID, Device Type ID, and Device ID can be read in from the “Main
menu”/”Devices” menu item (see chapter 5.5 programming devices)
 The Long addresses of the transmitters can be read using the Eview configuration software (preset to work with Short Addresses) provided with HART capable
devices
Since the Long address can not be modified please send such a unit back to the manufacturer, or call our Export Sales Department for help.
Question: what happens if the MultiCONT does not find all the devices?

3.

5.
One of the transmitters is not HART-capable. Check the transmitter type on the name plate.
Faulty device. Dismount the unit and check it in laboratory circumstances.
Faulty wiring connection.
The terminal voltage of the unit is small, check the configuration of the current outputs of the transmitters (See chapter 5.2.1.1 preparation of transmitters)
None of the devices are responding, please check:
 Is there any voltage between terminals L+ and SH? If no, then the output is faulty, or there is a short-circuit on the line.
 If there is voltage between terminals L+ and SH, then check if the terminals L+ and L- are short-circuited or if there is an open-circuit.
Then, the next steps will be adding the device to the list, and setting the device.

Upon selecting any unit that has responded (either above or below the line) an pressing „OK”, the „Short Tag” can be changed.
MultiCONT only handles units above the line.
Note:
If the number of the devices in the loop is known and MultiCONT detected them already, detection process can be interrupted by pressing the ← button
(the ← button should be pressed until „DEV detection end” message appears).

The communication between the MultiCONT and the devices is via different commands. The MultiCONT sends a command containing the address of the device,
which responds in accordance with the standards. Some of the commands are universal, while others are device-specific. The appropriate commands are selected
automatically based on the data required to control the display, relays, and current outputs. This can be checked or modified in this menu point. If a command
became unselected which is needed for appropriate operation, „Program failure” message will be generated in the relays and current outputs. The display flashes,
showing that the result will not be refreshed, because the needed HART command for this operation is unactivated. So the modification of this option is not
recommended or it needs great care! If multiple commands are selected, then the refresh time increases (display, relay, and output current modification).
MultiCONT uses the following commands to communicate with the devices.
 COM1: query of primary quantities/values
 COM2: the output current in mA and in % (output range)
 COM3: the primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary values
prw1101a0600p_07  48 / 105
These commands can be interpreted by any device belonging to any manufacturer.
The commands below can only be interpreted by NIVELCO products:
 NIV128: device specific command optimalized for DIST, LEV, VOL measurements
 NIV129: device specific command optimalized for DIST, LEV, FLOW, TOT1, TOT2 measurements

5.4.7. USER RS485
The MultiCONT User RS485 interface provides serial data transfer to the central
process controller computer or to a PLC. The following can be queried from
MultiCONT through the communication line:
 system properties (MultiCONT configuration, relays, current outputs,
transmitters, errors, number of Universal Interface Modules, etc)
 error list
 device assignment to relays or current outputs
 configuration of relays and current outputs
 output values of the devices
The MultiCONT units have separate addresses so they can be connected into a
system. (max. 30 MultiCONT-s).
2 communication protocols are available:
 HART 5 (default)
 MODBUS RTU

5.4.8. Data Logger
Logger capability of the MultiCONT has two main parts with the following functions:
 Trend logger: in a separate board in PED- and PRD- types. Storing can be done to the FLASH or the memory card. In case of trend logging the ID of the
transmitter, the primary value and three additional selectable values will be stored.
 Time-controlled logging whereby an item is stored after a programmed time elapse or
 Event-controlled logging whereby an item is stored a pre-set condition is fulfilled.

Two types of time-window logging can be used for flow-metering. Storing is done to the FLASH memory.
 In case of “Time-window TOT” TOT is calculated in a selected time interval, monitoring the average, minimum and maximum value of the flow.
 In case of “Time-window FM” the 8 highest values of flow are stored with time in a selected time interval.
prw1101a0600p_07  51 / 105
The time-windows are independent from the trend logger and even all four saving modes can operate at the same time (time/event-controlled, time-windows).
Time-window logger function can be used only for NIVELCO manufactured transmitters used in flow-metering mode.

5.4.8.1 Trend logger
Trend logger function is only available on PRD- and PED- instruments. Trend logging can be time-controlled (store an entry after a programmed time elapse) or
event-controlled (logging upon measurement changes). These two modes can be working simultaneously and conditions of the logging can be set from the menu
(programmed trend logging). Logged entry contains the necessary data to identify a transmitter, the time of the entry, the primary value of the transmitter, and three
additional menu-selectable values.
Data are stored into the FLASH memory in the first step. Capacity of the FLASH memory is 65000 entries. Then if data are stored into an SD (Secure Digital) card,
the capacity is depended on the SD card. The readout of the on-board memory can be performed via the USB port with an ordinary commercial USB cable (USB A-B
cable). Usage of the SD card is detailed in the chapter 5.4.8.4.

For using the trend logging function, the following data should be set:
 In the “Source” menu point the transmitter can be selected which measured value will be logged and the additional three values can be selected to be logged
besides the primary value.
 In the “Mode” menu point the logging mode (time-controlled, event-controlled or both) can be selected.
 In case of time-controlled logging mode in the “Parameters” menu point the logging interval should be entered into LP3 in minutes.
 In case of event-controlled logging mode in the “Parameters” menu point LP1 and LP2 parameters should be set, according to the table below:

In case of time-controlled trend logging the average of the selected values will be stored within the time interval which is set in LP3 parameter.
Mode and parameters of the logging are the same for all transmitters. Logging function commences when exiting the “LOG”/”Settings” menu point.
Besides the measurement values of the transmitters there are many events (which affect the operation of the whole system) stored in the trend logger regardless the
programming (see chapter 5.4.8.5).

“Main menu”/”MultiCONT conf.”/”HART”/”Command set”). Within the selected time interval MultiCONT counts the total flow (TOT), the average flow (Qave) and
monitors the maximal and the minimal flow. Length of this time interval should be entered (in minutes) in LP3 parameter in the “Parameters” menu point. Up to 256
time-windows can be stored.
Read logging data: “Main menu”/”MultiCONT conf.”/”LOG”/”Show time window TOT”

5.4.8.4 Using a memory card for logging
Trend logging function is facilitated by a LOGGER unit connected to the front panel. It contains a FLASH memory chip and an SD (Secure Digital) card slot.
Communication between the central unit of the MultiCONT and the LOGGER unit is indicated by two LED-s on the front panel. The green LED (read) flashes when a
new logging entry is created, the red LED (wire) indicates when data are stored to the SD card. For storing data an SD (Secure Digital) memory card with maximum
2 GB capacity can be used. SDHC, MMC, Compact Flash, MiniSD, MicroSD and other types of memory cards are not available to use!

DIST 1 M
2.546 m
Red LED
SD card slot
Green LED
USB connector
In case of PED- and PRD- type devices (which are able to trend logging) checking of the LOGGER unit is done when turning it on. Then the following box messages
will be shown on the display in accordance to the result of the logging procedure:
prw1101a0600p_07  56 / 105
LOGGER PRESENT
LOGGER NOT PRESENT
Everything is OK
Red and green LED-s are flashing until
this caption appears
LOGGER card is not working properly
In this case P-100 :LOG IP entry will be
created in the error-list
This procedure is repeated in every turning ON/OFF and restart.
Then the measurement data are sent continuously to the LOGGER unit (flashing green LED indicates) and in case of fulfilment of the selected conditions
(see chapter 5.4.8.1) they are logged, which is indicated by the flashing red LED.
Capacity of the on-board FLASH memory is 65000 entries. When this memory is became full and there is no SD card in the card-reader, the old entries will be
overwritten so the logging will be performed by a “rotation”. Number of overflows can be read out in the “LOG”/”Info” menu point. When there is an SD card in the slot
the read and write process is done with the frequency selected in “LOG”/”Settings”/SD saving mode” menu point. Maximal capacity of the SD card is 2 GB. One entry
is about 200 byte, so this capacity provides storing entries more than a million.
The LOGGER unit of the MultiCONT senses automatically the inserted SD card. Then saving the FLASH memory into the memory card commences automatically.
State of this process can be followed in the trend bargraph. Before remove the memory card, the end of the write process (when the red LED does not flash) has to
be waited. In order to avoid removing the card during the write process, push the ESC and the ↑ buttons at the same time. Then the following box message will be
shown on the display:
SD card
can be removed
From this moment the MultiCONT does not send any data for 10 seconds to the LOGGER unit (write is unavailable) and the
SD card can be safely removed.
prw1101a0600p_07  57 / 105
5.4.8.5 File system of the SD card and file content of a logging entry
When inserting an SD card into the MultiCONT, content of the on-board FLASH memory is loaded automatically into the memory card (this is indicated by continuous
flashing of the red LED during write process). The LOGGER unit finds the last dated directory and examines if the files are more than 200 in this subdirectory. If not,
MultiCONT continues the write process. If there are more than 200 files, a new directory is created. One logging file can contain max. 1000 entries, but new logging
files are created when turning ON/OFF, restart of the MultiCONT and exiting from the LOG menu.
After finishing the saving process to the SD card, data are able to open in any PC with appropriate SD card-reader. The logging file is a special TAB articulated text
file, which can be read with any spreadsheet application if necessary.
Name of the sub-directories on the card:

For the transmitter to compute the measurement results using the linearisation table, linearisation has to be enabled in parameter P47

5.7. RELAY CONFIGURATION
First of all it is recommended to decide which relay is to be assigned to which device(s), and to which measured value (PV=primary value, SV=secondary value, …. )
in Main menu/Relays/ Program/Source. Relays can be assigned to one or more sources (difference, average). Secondly the relay function should be selected in Main
menu/Relays/ Program/Function. Finally the parameters have to be specified in Main menu/Relays/Program/Parameter such that the dimensions of RP1 and RP2 are
determined by the devices assigned to them. Thus if the chosen value is LEVEL [m] then the RPx parameters also have to be entered in LEVEL [m].
5.7.1. Relay Selection
It is impossible to enter the relay menu if the system does not contain a single relay. The number of relays in the system can be viewed under Main menu/MultiCONT

average might as well be selected. In case of the selection of multiple devices, control depends on the result of the mathematical sum. If in the case of selected
multiple devices the dimensions of the quantities are different, the unit will display an error message. Upon selelcting the quantity, confirm that the appropriate HART
command has been seleceted for the device (See Main menu/MultiCONT config/HART / command set, see chapter 5.4.5.5)

5.7.3.5 Deleting TOT
Quantity (TOT1 and TOT2) summation is done in the flow-measuring transmitters. In the MultiCONT it is possible to transmit the TOT2 in preset units in the form of
relay impulses. In order to do this, the relay has to be switched to ‘Impulse F’ mode. In the ‘RP3’ parameter (belonging to the relay), specify the volume that will
trigger 1 impulse (the length of 1 impulse is about 200 ms). There is a ‘PULSE’ and a ‘TOTAL’ variable for each relay programmed to work in ‘Impulse F’ mode. The
‘TOTAL’ variable of the relay goes after the ‘TOT2’ variable of the transmitter. The volume difference between the 2 variables, given in ‘RP3’ is put into the ‘PULSE’
variable. The value in the ‘PULSE’ variable is transmitted to the output of the relay. The ‘TOTAL’ and ‘PULSE’ relay variables get into the “non-volatile” memory even
in the event of a power failure, as a result of the (automatic) saving done every 6 minutes.The relay impulses that occur in the time elapse between the last save and
the return of power get counted again after the power supply is turned on. In order to avoid repeated counting, use a UPS.
Example: Let the TOT2 value of the transmitter be 1000m3. Let the TOTAL value of the relay also be 1000m3. Let the PULSE value of the relay be 0.
At the same time, assume the RP3 parameter of the relay to be 10m3. In this case, no impulses appear at the relay output, because the TOT2 value of the transmitter
is the same as the TOTAL value of the relay. Based on the measurement of the transmitter the TOT2 value changes from 1000m3 to 1050m3, the change being 50m3.
Also, based on the RP3 parameter of the relay (10m3 unit volume), 5 is added to the value of the PULSE variable, with the change being 5*10=50m3. The relay then
counts 5 impulses. After this, the value of the relay’s PULSE becomes 0, while that of TOTAL becomes 1050m3
Once in this menu, pressing ’OK’ will delete the values of the relay’s ’TOTAL’ and ’PULSE’ variables. This results in the total volume in the transmitter’s ’TOT2’
variable to be counted to the output of the relay based on the unit set in the ’RP3’.
The delete operation is followed by the window below.

 There are multiple sources with different dimensions
 „Impulse F” function is selected, and there are multiple sources or RP3=0
 „Alt S” or Sequential function is selected, and more than 8 relays are assigned to one device or the sources are different
(e.g.: PV for 1 relay, and SV for another)
 The sources are SV, TV, and QV but the COM3 command is not selected
 ALARM, G function is selected and dimensions of the transmitters’ measurement values are different
For a detailed overview of the Programming see Appendix 3.


The result of the transmitters marked with

. (difference measurement)
Secondly the relevant function should be selected and configured in (Main menu/ Current outputs /Program/Function). Finally the parameters have to be
programmed such that the values of the dimensions of CP1 and CP2 be determined by the transmitter(s). Thus if the measurement mode is LEVEL [m]
(e.g. for SE-300 P01=x1 P00=00x), then the programming has to be in LEVEL [m] too (Main menu/ Current outputs /Program/Parameter).
For a detailed overview of the programming steps see Appendix 4.

indifferent; in fact, average might as well be selected. In the case of the selection of multiple devices, functioning depends on the result of the mathematical sum. If in
the case of selected multiple devices the dimensions or the values are different, the unit will display an error message. Upon selecting the value, confirm that the
appropriate HART command has been seleceted for the device (See Main menu/MultiCONT config/HART / command set, see chapter 5.4.5.5)

After the boot test the MultiCONT will automatically enter the Measurement Mode /
standard display image. Measurement values will be queried and displayed in
accordance with the contents of the device list read from the memory and the
settings in Main menu / MultiCONT config. / Main display / Step. Maximum 5 data
per device can be displayed simultaneously on the display
(1 main display – see 5.4.3 - and 4 on the list display – see 5.4.4) together with
dimensions and abbreviations (DIST, LEV, VOL, FLOW, PV, SV, TV, QV, TOT1,
TOT2, E). In the upper row the device identifier (Short TAG), List Tag (1,…9,A.,...F)
can be seen and the device communicating actually with the MultiCONT.
When the device communicates via RS485, the „*” flashes. There are two bargraphs
on the display. One is the „sensor range” (only for NIVELCO transmitters), this
indicates the transmitter’s measurement range (the tank level between the maximum
and minimum measuring distance). The other is the „output range” that indicates the
4-20mA range of the transmitter.

and
for selection.
After the termination of a possible error, the display keeps on displaying the error until the error is acknowledged by pressing the ESC button. The query of the
devices, the control of the relays and the current outputs and the servicing of the RS485 all happen continuously during programming. The MultiCONT automatically
returns to measurement mode 5 minutes after the last button was pressed. It also records and saves the number of switchings and worktime of the relays every
6 minutes. The 6 minutes commence after the automatic exit.

5.11. SAVING, LOADING THE CONFIGURATION OF THE MultiCONT
Settings of the MultiCONT are stored in a non-volatile FLASH memory (FMA). The content of this FLASH memory is replaced into the operative memory (OM) (which
is a volatile memory) when MultiCONT is turned ON or restarted. Settings are saved automatically when exiting from the Menu.
In addition to this, working hours and the switching number of the relays are saved in every 6 minutes into the FLASH memory. In the “Main menu”/”Save config.”
menu point a safety copy (FMS) can be made from the automatically saved settings.
Load of the safety copy can be performed in the “Main menu”/”Load config.” menu point. When turning ON or restarting, memory content is replaced into the
operative memory from the FLASH memory, if it is faultless (calculated and stored CRC are the same). If there is a safety copy from the settings, the content of this
(FMS) is copied to the operative memory (OM) and the automatic saving storage (FMA) FLASH memory, when ESC and ← buttons are pressed simultaneously.

6. ERROR CODES
In the event of an error, the message “errors” (see Measurement mode, appendix 5) immediately appears
regardless of which device the error is connected to.
Errors occurring during operation will be collected in the E (Error) table where the error identifier message can
be viewed.
Errors

03: SP300-11 : Device
“Sensor” and “Reply” error message will automatically be erased from the list upon termination of the error.
Other errors entries will remain in the table until acknowledgement by pressing ESC. Thus for instance if a relay or current output set for function “Error”, it will
indicate the error even after termination of the error until the error is acknowledged as above.

* An active device on the list does not reply after switching-on. Possible reasons:
 the system was modified before turning on (device was disconnected, the wiring was changed, etc.)
 device failed to reach operation conditions during the boot process (and is not yet able to measure) thus this error message appears
(e.g. in solid applications, STD-300 transmitters may not respond until the amplification reaches operation conditions).
** A device that had been working perfectly suddenly stops responding. Possible reasons:
 the device has gone wrong
 broken cable
 noisy HART line (See Main menu/MultiCONT config/HART test)

*** A special error message belongs to sensor failures. This error can appear in
the case of ultrasonic transmitters due to the breakdown of the transducer or
during a dusty filling process, when if there is a display, a NoEcho message is

prw1101a0600p_07  97 / 105
9.3. TROUBLESHOOTING
9.3.1. It is impossible to enter the „Main menu”/”Relays” or „Main menu”/„Current outputs” menu:
There is no relay or current output in the unit. Check the number of relays and/or current outputs in „Main menu”/”MultiCONT config.”/”report” menu.
9.3.2. It is impossible to enter the „Main menu”/”Devices” menu:
The device list is empty. (there are neither inactive, nor active devices in the system, in measurement mode a „No HART Device” message appears on the display.)
9.3.3. A „Please wait” message appears upon selecting „DEV detect”
The HART line is so noisy, that there is no communication, and every command is bad. The only way to exit this state is by switching the unit off and on again.
Check the shielding of the cable and the cable route.
9.3.4. The result of „DEV detect” is the „No device” message
DEVICES
L+ L- SH
The MultiCONT did not detect any device that responded.
 Check for short-circuits or open-circuits.
There is a short-circuit if there is voltage between L+ and SH, but between L+ and L- the voltage is 0V.
 The line is open-circuited (cut) if there is no voltage between L- és SH, because there is no voltage drop on the sensing resistor ( Rfi=255Ω ) connected
between these 2 points, whereas the loop current should never be 0mA.
 Check the terminal voltage at the devices (transmitters). If the terminal voltage is small, it might be due to bad wiring (big intermediate resistance) or big
loop current, resulting on a big voltage drop on the sensing resistor. Connect the devices in to the loop one by one, checking the „Short address” and the
constant current parameter (see: chapter on preparation of transmitters)
 Confirm that the device is HART capable (Type, nameplate)
9.3.5. The unit does not start up when switched on
It restarts repeatedly (see: chapter 5.9.)

This can be due to faulty FLASH ( the non-volatile memory in the unit )

Or a bad RS485 card ( types P__-1_A and P__-1_B ), because this is tested at boot, and does not continue in case of an error. Request help from our
Export Sales department.
9.3.6. The „Response” error entry is too frequent
The line is noisy, check the grounding of the cable shielding. If the cable is not shielded, replace it with a shielded cable.
prw1101a0600p_07  98 / 105
9.4. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
9.4.1. Problems that may occur during remote programming:
In the case of integer type parameters, MultiCONT
displays all the four digits even if the case of a given
transmitter only one digit is meaningful. For
example:
PRW:
P12 Error state
14
SE-300:
P12:
2
0002
SE-300 only tests the value of digit „a” value( see Manual), and does not display an error if 1002 is written. It even stores this value. It does not indicate any
operational error, but upon reading this parameter from SE-300 1002 is received which does not have any meaning according to the manual!!!!
9.4.2. MultiCONT transmits the parameters without examining them, and the testing is done by the device.
In the event of an error, if the device does not accept it, then a “HART logical error” box message appears on the display.
9.4.3. Use of Second HART Master ( Hand-Held or HART modem + Eview configuration software)
Normally, there can only be one master in HART systems. Since the MultiCONT is a master, other masters can only be used if if the status of every device is set to
inactive, i.e. the MultiCONT is in listen mode. (see „Main menu”/”Devices”) After this, the other master can be connected to the L- and SH terminals (with a 255 Ohm
sensing resistor inside)
9.4.4. Upon exiting remote programming, the unit tests to see if the transmitter really exited the remote programming mode
(During remote programming „RP” appears on the display of the transmitter). If this is not successful, then the „Stuck in RP mode” box message keeps us informed.
In this case, it is not possible to manually enter programming mode!!
9.4.5. When a transmitter does not respond, then „Response” error is entered into the table, but upon termination of the error
(the device responds), this entry is automatically cleared from the table (and does not need to be acknowledged)
This is also true for „Sensor” error ( noEcho, etc ). The states of the relays and current outputs are not refreshed during this process!!!
9.4.6. Upon exiting the menu, MultiCONT immediately saves the modifications
However, there are events that need to be saved, and this happens every 6 minutes. These include:
 Work time and number of state changes of relays
 The number of times the MultiCONT was turned on (see: „Main menu”/”MultiCONT config.”/”Report”/”Power count”)
 The relevant internal variables, if the function of any relay is „Impulse F”, i.e. RP3 sends a unit pulse to the output, (TOTAL and PULSE, see: „Main
menu”/”Relays”/”Programming”/”deleting TOT”)
9.4.7. The error list is cleared when the device is put off
