Safety requirements Before commissioning, find out whether the mains voltage and current type specified on the identification plate match the mains voltage and current type at the place of use, and whether the circuit being used is adequately protected. Insert the mains plug only into a socket with a protection switch (Protection Class I). When connecting electrical devices to low voltage: connect to separated extralow voltage (SELV) only (safety transformer in accordance with DINVDE 0551 / EN60742). Use only the mains cable supplied, which has been provided with a ferrite core. Before you open the device, make sure it is switched off; remove the mains plug from the socket. Never pull the mains plug from the socket by the mains cable. Do not operate the device, if the mains cable is damaged. If an amplifier channel is to be withdrawn, close off the plug-in unit with a blank plate. Built-in devices must only ever be operated whilst they are within the housing provided for them. The device complies with the safety requirements of DIN EN 61010-Part 1 (VDE 0411-Part 1); Protection Class I. To ensure adequate immunity from interference, use only Greenline shielded ducting (see HBM offprint Greenline shielding design, EMC-compliant measuring cable; G36.35.0) The port connections (v50V) must have an insulating strength of at least 350V(AC).

Introduction System description

System description

The MGCplus system is modular in construction. Depending on the enclosure variant concerned, up to 16 slots are available for one-channel and multi-channel amplifier plug-in modules. This means that up to 128 measuring points can be measured in one MGCplus. Each amplifier plug-in module operates in standalone mode through the internal CPU. Data conditioning, such as taring, filtering and measuring range adjustment, is carried out in digital form. The disadvantages of analogue conditioning, such as time and temperature related drift, errors due to component tolerances, limited flexibility and high circuit complexity, can no longer arise. The prerequisite for this, however, is analogue-digital conversion free of information loss. The digitally conditioned signal is fed to the internal high-speed bus. In the case of one-channel measurement modules, two analogue outputs (voltage or current) are available in addition to the digital measured values. A credit-card format standard internal PC collects the data with a total sampling rate of up to 300 000 values per second. All measurement signals can be captured in parallel, since each channel has its own A/D converter. No Sample & Hold or multiplexer is used in the MGCplus. This ensures continuous digital filtering and highest possible signal stability. Using interfaces like Ethernet or USB, data is sent to an external computer or PLC.

Introduction MGCsplit

Modules in the MGCsplit system

The MGCsplit system is based on the components of the MGCplus measurement system and housed in robust enclosures (protection class IP 40 or IP 65). The system makes it possible to build up a decentralized measurement system from individual modules. Each enclosure has room for an amplifier module and a maximum of two connector plates. The following module types are available, depending on the particular function required: D D Measurement modules with one MLxx amplifier module and max. two connector plates Processor modules with one communication processor

D Power pack module with power pack and CAN input The modules are networked together using split-line connection cable and optionally may also be networked with the MGCplus system via the AP20 connector plate.

Fig.7.1:

MGCsplit measuring amplifier system

Note
When the line length exceeds 10m or the total number of modules exceeds 8, we recommend the use of a Link terminating resistor (1MGCsplit Term) for linking the MGCsplit modules.

Processor modules 1SH400CP

The CP22 and CP42 communication processors in the 1SH400 enclosure handle the communication between modules. They have the usual PC interfaces (RS232, USB, Ethernet) and ensure rapid synchronization with other MGCplus systems. The CP42 communication processor can also accept a PC card which enables data to be recorded without a PC.

NOTE
The CP22 communication processor has to be mounted rightaligned and the middle (free) slot has to be covered by a dummy plate.

Restart errors can occur if the supply voltage is quickly turned off and on again. After switching off the supply voltage it is best to wait about 2 seconds before turning it on again. No address received is displayed if the cabling is faulty, e.g. if line in (IN) and line out (OUT) have become switched. To remedy this, reconnect the cabling correctly and restart the system. When more than 16 measurement modules are connected, the measurement module displays at address 16 the error More than 16 channels present and the following modules show No address received. These measurement modules are ignored by the communication processor.

The address is displayed in error-free measuring mode only. In the event of an error the address LEDs have a different meaning (see ERROR).
Address LED 1 2 4 8 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16

= LED on = LED off The module addresses result from the cabling of the measurement system. The measurement module which has its split-line input (IN) connected to the split-line output (OUT) on the processor module receives address 1. The next module, which is connected to the output (OUT) of module 1, receives address 2, and so on. This gives continuous address numbering without gaps. In the event that MGCsplit modules are incorporated into an MGCplus system via the AP20 connector plate, the first MGCsplit measurement module receives the address of the AP20 slot (e.g. with an AP20 in slots 3 and 4, the measurement module receives address 3).

Introduction MGCsplit

Installing an AP20 connector plate The AP20 connector plate is installed in the MGCplus instrument directly alongside the existing connector plates. The remaining slots (to the right of the AP20 in Fig.7.6) must be kept free. The unoccupied channels in the MGCplus (up to channel 16) are available to the MGCsplit system. In the case of amplifier modules that do not need connector plates (e.g. the ML77B), the backing connector plate slot must be kept free just the same (see Fig.7.7).

Advice for connection boards AP08, AP18i, AP418i: If the transducer connection cable is used outside of closed rooms or if the transducer connection cable is longer than 30 m, then this cable must be protected against high voltage with an additional, separately grounded shield. This can be achieved laying the cable in a metallic pipe or by using double shielded cables, where the external shield near by the connection board must be grounded (connect to ground or ground wire). For this purpose HBM recommend to use Triaxial cables.

Power supply units NT650/NT651

ATTENTION
The power supply units have fine-wire fuses. The fuses may only be replaced by the manufacturers service personnel. Connecting the power supply The power supply units NT650/NT651 supply the MGCsplit-modules with a direct voltage of 28 V. The input voltage range is 10 V ... 50 V (DC). The power supply units are not potentially isolated. The power supply unit NT650 is specially designed for test drives and can bridge voltage interruptions of up to 10 seconds 15 minutes after being switched on (if 10 measurement modules are connected). The buffer capacitors are automatically recharged as long as the power supply unit is switched on. Use a 4-wire cable for the supply line with a wire cross-section of 0.5 mm2. Always connect all 4 wires. Avoid high contact resistances (e.g. due to corroded plug connectors)! Voltage supply (device plug POWER IN)

You can connect a maximum of 10 modules (1x SH400CP and 9x SH400 or SH650) or, if using a ABX22 display- and control panel, a maximum of 9 modules. If more MGCsplit-modules (up to 1x SH400CP, 16x SH400 or SH650 and 1x ABX22) are to be operated, you will need an additional power supply unit. Both power supply units should in this case be arranged directly behind one another.

Input

Connect the MGCsplit measuring system to the sockets SPLITLINE IN and SPLITLINE OUT. Only use the Split Line cable from HBM. You can connect the power supply unit at any point in the measuring system. Just interrupt the SPLITLINE and connect the power supply unit in between.
Connection at the start of the system (before the SH400CP): Advantage: if there is a power failure, the communication processor CPxx receives a warning signal from the NT650 if the energy only suffices for another ca. 5 seconds. It can therefore finish the measurement in a defined manner. Connection in the middle (e.g. between two SH650 measurement modules): Advantage: Good power distribution (less losses in the supply lines).

The mains switch must be in the position REMOTE. A change in the level from over 3V to under 1V or vice versa causes switching, either from OFF to ON or from ON to OFF. The CAN bus is connected to pins 1 and 4, the earth may also be required. A CAN terminating resistor is not present in the power supply unit, if necessary you must add one externally. Switching on and off is implemented with two predefined messages (see Page B-67). The galvanically isolated digital input NT_ON is related to GNDM. GNDM can if necessary be connected with pin 6 (0V_IN).

(*) The power supply unit is switched off, connected MGCsplit measuring systems are not supplied. (*) a) Directly after switching from switch position OFF or after deactivation via CAN or digital input: The power supply unit is switched off, green LED flashes every 2s, connected MGCsplit-measuring system is only supplied when it is activated via the CAN or digital input. b) After activation via CAN or digital input: The power supply unit is switched on, green LED lights up, connected MGCsplit measuring systems are supplied with 28 V DC. (*)

(*) NT650 only: The buffer capacitors are automatically recharged when necessary (additional power consumption up to ca. 8W).

Manual on/off switching Turn the POWER switch to the ON or OFF position. Remote on/off switching In the switch position REMOTE, you can switch the power supply unit on/off via the CAN bus. Standard CAN is supported as per ISO11898 (Transceiver PCA82C251). A switch on and switch off message are defined. CAN-message for switching on/off:

Ensure that a terminating resistor (120 Ohm) is present on both ends of the CAN bus. The listed CAN parameters are preset but can be adapted by HBM on request. Remote control via digital input In the switch position REMOTE, the power supply unit can be switched on/off via a galvanically isolated digital input. Switching on/off is flank controlled, i.e. switching occurs when a flank is detected, either from OFF to ON or from ON to OFF. A flank is detected when the actual level of the signal NT_ON changes from < 1V to > 3V (rising flank) or from > 3V to < 1V (falling flank). Remote control via CAN and digital input Both variants can be combined, e.g. switching on via CAN switch on message, switching off with rising or falling flank at the digital input. Bridging of voltage failures (NT650 only): The power supply unit NT650 is equipped with so-called buffer capacitors which are fully loaded within 15 minutes of the supply voltage being connected. If the power fails (e.g. during the vehicle starting procedure), the power supply unit is supplied by these capacitors. A connected MGCsplit system with maximum modules can be supplied for at least 10 seconds, correspondingly longer if less modules are connected. If a CP module is directly connected to the Split Line output and the capacitor feed is active, then the CP module will receive a warning signal (PDWN_CP based on GNDD) ca. 5 seconds before the buffer energy is exhausted and can therefore end a current measurement data recording in a defined manner.

Once the input voltage is again available, discharged buffer capacitors are recharged, regardless of the NT650 switch position. Recharging can take up to 15 minutes if the buffer capacitors are fully discharged. A drop in capacitor voltage through self-discharge is also detected and compensated for by cyclical recharging. However, this requires that the NT650 is continually supplied with voltage. In order to achieve correct switching from external supply to capacitor supply, the supply lines must be as short and as low impedance as possible. Too many or poor plug connections can also affect the bridging function due to transition impedance. This must be taken into account when using numerous modules and low supply voltages.

Analogue output on the front panel

The front panel of a one-channel module includes a female BNC connector for analogue output signal VO1. (This female connector is for test purposes. The fixed wiring should always go through the connection boards, since the noise voltage is smaller here).

NOTE
Please note: the input resistance of the connected device must be greater than 1 MW. When connecting a coaxial cable to the analog output of the ML60B preamplifier module for use in Class B environments, acc. to EN55011 or EN55022 (residential premises, business and trade, and small businesses), a ferrite (Wrth, art. No. 742 711 72 or similar) must be attached to the cable.

Output pin assignments Analogue output Pin 10 is only used if the connection board is fitted with the EM001 final stage module. This must be installed as described in chapter 9.3.2. The switch position determines whether the output signal is made available as a voltage signal or as a current signal. Vo= 0...10 V, Ro >500 W Io = 0...20 mA or +4...20 mA; Ro <500 W Pin 11 is only used if the connection board is fitted with the EM001 final stage module. This must be installed as described in chapter 9.3.2. The switch position determines whether the output signal is made available as a voltage signal or as a current signal. Vo=0...10 V, Ro500 W Io=0...20 mA or +4...20 mA, Ro<500 W

NOTE
Connection boards AP08/14/17/18i may only be fitted with one final stage module. In this case pin 11 is used and pin 10 is left free. On pin 12 you will find analogue output signal VO2. The connected load resistance must be greater than 5 kW. On pin 13 you will find analogue output signal VO1 exactly as on the BNC female connector on the front panel. Signals S1 to S4 are to be assigned as required to outputs V01 (Bu2 and BNC) and V02 (Bu2 only). Bu2: Ro >5 kW BNC: Ro >1 MW

Connecting Outputs and remotes

On pins 17 to 20 you will find the connection states for limit switches 1 to 4. Their connection states are indicated by two different HCMOS voltage levels: Positive logic: Level 0V: Limit switch OFF Level 5V: Limit switch ON

Pin 21 carries a level of 5 V (high level), which can be used as a warning signal. In the event of a fault for example a break in the transducer cable the output signal is set to 0 V (low). On the other hand, this signal is also set to zero during the autocalibration cycle (every 5 min., for approx.1 s).

Remotes On pins 2 to 9 of female connector 2 you will find remotes Ctrl 1 to 8 for controlling certain of the amplifiers functions. These remotes are active if they have been enabled via an AB22A/AB32 display and control panel, i.e. in REMOTE operating mode. The tasks assigned to these remotes can be freely selected. The available functions are shown in chapter F Additional functions together with their descriptions. In the factory preset, the remotes are not defined.

External triggering Remote 7 is used as an external trigger input. For AP13i (Remote contact 7) see page B-49.

Installing the EM001 final stage module

Output stage module EM001

The EM001 final stage module can only be used with connection boards without transducer recognition. For correct positioning on the connection boards mother board the EM001 final stage module has been marked with the numeral 1 on the bottom left corner and a triangle on the left side. These symbols have also been printed onto the mother board. After having inserted the final stage module, you have to select the switch and bridge positions according to the desired output signal (see tables).

Commissioning

This chapter shows you the necessary steps to take in order to make your measurement chain (amplifier system and transducer) ready for use. You will then be in a position to carry out a function test of all components. The various steps are deliberately explained in very general terms, without going into detail about specific transducers or amplifier plug-in modules. However, it is very easy to apply the description to your own measurement chain. In some instances especially to do with connecting transducers reference will be made to later chapters. We also warn about certain errors which can typically occur during commissioning. After initial commissioning and adapting the amplifier plug-in module to your transducer, you are in a position to get to know the other functions and facilities of the MGCplus amplifier system.

Unpack the MGCplus. Check that the MGCplus is undamaged. Is the delivery complete? Compare the contents of packages with the accompanying documentation list. Is the documentation complete?

Devices in the desktop housing and rack frame

If you have not yet received your complete amplifier system, you should take note of the following points when putting the system together: The amplifier plug-in units are plugged in at the front panel and the associated connection boards are plugged in at the back. It is important to ensure correct allocation during this step: If using wide connection boards (8 divisions), you must plug these into slots 1, 3, 5 etc. Slots 2, 4, 6 etc. on the front panel must be left free or with fitted blank plates. On safety grounds, all unused slots (amplifiers or connection boards) must be covered over with blank plates.

Check that all amplifiers and connection boards are firmly plugged in. Connect the device to the mains supply with the mains cable provided. Connect your transducer to the female connector provided on the connection board (reference BU01). If you use a cable you have made up yourself, please adhere to the pin assignment for your transducer as shown in chapter B.

Please note the safety instructions on page A-3.

This chapter shows you the steps involved in taking a measurement with the MGCplus. At the beginning of each section an example explains the details specific to each transducer with regard to adapting the amplifier plug-in modules. Once the amplifier plug-in modules are matched you can proceed with taking measurements. For information on other functions such as limit switches or peak value stores, see chapter F Additional functions. Steps in setting up the measurement chain 1 2 3 4 Settings specific to the transducer: bridge type, excitation voltage, sensitivity, k-factor. Settings for conditioning: zero balance, zero offset, tare value, filter settings. Settings specific to the display: unit, decimal places, scale range, step. Settings for analogue output: gross, net, peak value, output characteristics. You can set up the zero point and measuring range in two ways, depending on the requirement: a) by inputting the given transducer characteristics b) by calibration with direct loading

TEDS (Transducer Electronic Data Sheet) is the designation for an electronic data sheet in the transducer. It is stored in an electronic module that is inseparably connected to the transducer. It can be located in the transducer housing, in the inseparable cable or connector plug. Many components in the MGCplus amplifier system are capable of reading the transducer information stored in the data sheet and to convert it into amplifier settings so that measurements can be started immediately. MGCplus supports TEDS-transducers that comply with the data protocol (One-Wire-Protocol) and data structure in the IEEE 1451.4 standard. This means that the same cables can be used as for transducers that do not have TEDS. Some MGCplus system connection plates, e.g. AP01i, also offer the possibility of inputting TEDS data signals to two separate pins (ground and TEDs data signal). Loading TEDS data into the amplifier In the default setting, the TEDS key F2 is in level 2 of the function keys. 1. Press it in measuring mode 2. Press the TEDS-key . .

The actual amplifier will then be parameterised with the transducer settings from the TEDS chip if it supports this functionality.

Impulse response

Low pass Low-pass filters are used to suppress unwanted high-frequency interference above a defined cut-off frequency. Amplitude response, phase delay and impulse response are dependent on the filter characteristics. You can choose between the Butterworth characteristic and the Bessel characteristic. The Butterworth characteristic exhibits a linear amplitude response which then falls away steeply above the cut-off frequency. There is an overshoot of approx. 10 %. The Bessel characteristic exhibits an impulse response with very little (<1 %) or no overshooting. The amplitude response falls away less steeply. High pass High-pass filters are used to suppress unwanted low-frequency interference below a defined cut-off frequency. You can use high-pass to suppress slow fluctuations such as those due to the influence of temperature and drift over time. The high-pass filter has no function when connected to resistance thermometers and thermocouples.

In order for high-pass to function, the low-pass setting must not fall below the following limits: Bessel: Butterworth: 5 Hz 10 Hz

SG transducers (HBM load cells, force transducers) are passive transducers with the following characteristics:

The transducer has the following characteristic data: Nominal load (e.g. 20kg) Nominal sensitivity (e.g. 2mV/V) These values must be taken into account during adaptation to the amplifier. The standard set-up for excitation voltage UB in the case of an SG full bridge is 5V. If higher measuring ranges are required or if several transducers are connected in parallel, a lower excitation voltage must me selected. The individual values depend on the type of plug-in module used.

Strain gages

The variable to which reference is to be made for assessment of the material loading is the mechanical stress to which the material is exposed. A practical method for experimental determination of material stresses is based on strain gages. A detailed description of the strain gage technique may be found in the book An Introduction to the Technique of Measuring with Strain Gauges (Author: Karl Hoffmann, published by HBM Darmstadt). The resistance of the SG is changed by straining. This change lies in the mW and mW range, which is why the Wheatstone bridge is used for measuring with great accuracy.

In connection with AP01i and AP03i

The measurement system always measures the total strain (e) of the individual strain gages in the Wheatstone bridge. In practice individual strain gages are generally used for mechanical stress analysis. Due to the temperature compensation, the larger measuring signal, better cable resistance compensation and in some tension states the half bridge and the full bridge are used (e.g. for measuring on a bent rod). The most important characteristic of an SG is the k-factor (strain sensitivity). The MGCplus measurement system automatically switches over to strain measurement when a k-factor >0 is input. Scaling of the zero point and measuring range is carried out in mm/m. By changing the unit and input range, other physical variables (e.g. mechanical stress in N/mm2) can be derived. If zero is entered as the k-factor the system switches over to mV/V. Example: A strain of up to 1000 mm/m is to be measured with 120 W single strain gages. The k-factor of the SG is 2.05. The excitation voltage plays no part in this example. The setup for 2.5 V will be described.

Torque transducer

Torque transducers with different measurement principles require different amplifier modules in the MGCplus-system and therefore different operating steps. The HBM torque transducers in the type series TB1A and TB2 work with SG full bridges. The procedure described in Section 3.1 (SG transducer) must be followed to adapt the torque channels (ML10B, ML30B, ML38, ML55B) of these transducers. The adaptation of the speed channels (ML60B/ML460) corresponds to the procedure described in this chapter. The HBM-torque transducers in type series T3_FNA and T10FKF1 work with a frequency modulation procedure (TF ca. 10kHz corresponds to unloaded shaft, modulation through load "5kHz). You will need the connection plates AP07 or AP07/1 for processing measured values. The HBM-torque flanges in type series T10F/T10FSSF1/SU2 and T10FM require connection plate AP17 for operation with the amplifier modules ML60B (one amplifier module each for torque and speed). When using the amplifier modules ML460 (multi-channel module) with the connection plates AP6401, the T10.. transducers must be powered externally. For calculating additional parameters, such as the rotation output (product of speed and torque), the freely programmable module ML70B is recommended for MGCplus. Another option is the use of online calculation channels in the HBM measured data recording software catman.

Thermocouples

Thermocouples are active transducers. For measurements using thermocouples you need the ML01B amplifier plug-in module and the AP09 connection board.

With the Thermocouples operating mode and units C or F selected, the temperature will be displayed appropriately in the required unit. With Volt selected as the unit, scaling is carried out in accordance with the output voltage1). The following example explains the settings:

Impulse counting

The ML60B amplifier is required for impulse counting purposes. It enables a maximum impulse-sequence frequency of 1 MHz to be processed. For more details on further amplifier setup options refer to chapter 3.4, page E-44. Incremental transducers e.g. for angle measurement deliver two square-wave signals which are 90 out of phase. The clock ratio between High and Low for both signals must be approx. 1:1.

The following example explains the set-ups: An angle of rotation transducer delivers 180 impulses per revolution. These impulses are to be displayed as 360 . Due to the number of impulses per revolution the value 2 is specified as Step, since a higher resolution would make no sense. The levels of the square-wave signal amount to 10 V. A frequency signal with quadrupled counter impulses is required at the output in addition to the measured value.

If this filter has been switched on, interfering signals with pulse widths below 1.6ms will be suppressed. Frequency quadrupling The frequency quadrupling results in an increased signal resolution by counting of both the positive and the negative signal edges. With both frequency inputs (F1 and F2) having been connected, the measuring frequency is quadrupled. If F2 has not been connected,the measuring frequency is doubled. Evaluate F2 signal (recognition of direction) The phaseshifted signal F2 is evaluated thus enabling the direction of rotation or motion to be displayed. Zero index input active With incremental transducers this input is used for resetting the counter in counting mode.

Measure Piezoelectric transducers

Piezoelectric transducers

Piezoelectric transducers are active transducers that emit a charge in the event of mechanical loading. When using these transducers, please observe the following instructions:

For transducer connection, special cable with high isolation resistance, low capacitance, low noise and a wide temperature range is essential. Standard coaxial cable is unsuitable for this type of application. For quasi-static measurements a very high isolation resistance (>100T ) is required. For this reason all input plugs must be kept clean and should not be touched by hand. Please use a suitable cleaning agent for cleaning (e.g. pure petroleum spirit).

To operate piezoelectric transducers you need the AP08 connection board with the charge amplifier and an ML10B or ML01B DC amplifier. A piezoelectric transducer can be thought of as a capacitor that is charged by mechanical loading. In all cases, discharging is via the input and isolation resistor on the amplifier. The time constant determines the speed of discharge. There are three time constants from which to choose: SHORT MEDIUM LONG for dynamic measurement for dynamic measurement with a limited frequency range for quasi-static measurement

Coarse and fine adjustment can be chosen for the measuring range selection. There are four input ranges for coarse adjustment: 100 pC; 1; 10 and 100 nC. Example: If the measuring range 6000 pC is wanted, set up the next higher input range of 10 nC.

MGCplus with AB22A / AB32

Measure Piezoelectric transducers

E-67

With a constant transducer loading the value in the display or at the output signal may drift. This may result from insufficient cable isolation resistance or incorrect drift balance on the amplifier. We recommend that all male connectors should first be cleaned. If the problem persists, the drift needs to be readjusted (see chap.4.2). The following example explains the set-ups: You wish to use a piezoelectric acceleration transducer for measurement. Transducer nominal value is 100 pC/g. Dynamic measurement is to be taken, up to 60 g = 10 V. Measuring range 60 g 100 pC/g = 6000 pC Dynamic measurement, i.e. time constant SHORT.

Measure Current-fed piezoelectric transducers

E-75

Current-fed piezoelectric transducers

Piezoelectric transducers with a built-in preamplifier are often used for acceleration and force measurement. These transducers need a constant current for the power supply. The measurement signal corresponds to the modulated voltage at the power line. A typical example of this product family is the DeltaTronT acceleration transducer from Brel&Kjaer. To operate current-fed piezoelectric transducers you will need connection board AP18i and an ML10B or ML01B DC amplifier. You can select rough and fine adjustment for the measuring range. 3 input ranges are available for coarse adjustment: 0.1 V; 1 V; 10 V. Example: If you want a measuring range of 7 V the next input range up 10 V is set. The zero point defines the voltage which generates 0 V at the output of the amplifier. The nominal value is always defined relative to this zero point. Analogue outputs are used to define the display scaling, i.e. they are used to define the value that is displayed for an output signal of 10 V. The following example explains the set-ups: An acceleration of up to 300 m/s2 is to be measured with a DeltaTronT transducer. The nominal value of the transducer is 1 mV/ m/s2. Measuring range (fine adjustment): 300 m/s2 x 1 mV/m/s2 = 0.3 V Input range (coarse adjustment): 1 V ( > 0.3 V)

Measure Potentiometric transducers

Potentiometric transducers

Resistors are passive transducers. These transducers require the ML35B , amplifier plug-in module, which has two coarse measuring ranges available (0...500 and 0...5 k). Potentiometric transducers are passive transducers that have to be supplied with an excitation voltage. To operate a potentiometric transducer you require the ML10B amplifier. Please note that the maximum resistance value is 5 k. The following example explains the set-ups: A potentiometric displacement transducer with a nominal displacement of 10 mm is used for measurement. The whole nominal displacement is to be used. The display range is 10 mm. Due to the interdependence between excitation voltage and nominal input voltage (mV/V), in the case of an excitation voltage of 2.5 V, the measuring range needs to be set up in accordance with the following correlation: Nominal value to be set up = (RANGE) Rated voltage (displacement) Excitation voltage

Nominal value (range) = 2.5 V / 2.5 V = 1000 mV/V This value of 1000 mV/V or 1 V/V only changes if a potentiometric transducer is used in a section. As the second method, partial calibration with end values of 7 mm is performed for calibration of the zero point and range with a defined displacement.

Additional functions Limit switches

Limit switches (one-channel modules only)

In order to assess mass or weight tolerances, or when monitoring forces, pressures etc., it is often necessary to comply with certain target values or limit switches. Each amplifier plug-in module therefore has four limit switches available (in ex-factory status these are OFF). They can be used to specify the level, the hysteresis and the direction of each for limit switch monitoring. The hysteresis value prevents fluttering of the limit switches upon reaching the switching threshold. The prevailing connection state is indicated by an LED on the front panel of the amplifier plug-in module when the STATUS display format is enabled. Displays limit switches status Please note the following points when working with limit switches: The measuring signal must last for at least 1 ms. The measurement voltage delivered by the amplifier is compared internally with the reference voltage. If the measurement voltage reaches or exceeds the reference voltage that has been set, the associated logic output is switched and the appropriate LED indicates the connection state. If you are using the AP02 connection board, you also have relay contacts available. Connection board AP13i has 24 V PLCcompatible, optically decoupled limit switch outputs.

Peak value stores can also be used to provide an envelope display. The envelope function is suitable for measuring amplitude modulated vibration. Inputting a decay time defines how quickly the peak value store is discharged to 30 % of the peak value when the latter is no longer present at memory input. The choice of decay time depends on the basic vibration frequency f0 and the modulation frequency. Usable envelopes are obtained in most cases with a decay time which is about a multiple of 10 of the basic frequency period (t= 10 / f0).

Value (2...6): Channel The value entered depends on the absolute/relative selection. This setting lets you use 3 values and 6 values types to define which reference to the basic channel is produced. Absolute/relativ to base This setting lets you use 3 values and 6 values types to define whether a reference to the channel number of the basic channel is produced. Absolute: The measured value and signal of the selected channel are displayed independently of the basic value. The number entered corresponds to the actual channel number. Changing channels in measuring mode has no effect on this display value. relativ to base: The number entered refers to the basic channel (display value 1). Channels to the left of the basic channel are entered with a negative sign and those to the right of it are entered with a positive sign. Caution: This value does not correspond to the actual (absolute) channel number.

With MGCplus, to record measurement series, you can configure and save up to 17 data acquisition programs (16 on the hard disk). Saved data is stored in the RAM of communications processor CP42, or on its PC card harddisk (optional). The following types of harddisks are supported: Harddisk type ATA standard, Type 2 (narrow design, approx. 5 mm thick) The maximum capacity is in principle not limited. At the moment the PC card harddisks up to 5 GB have been tested. Formatted in FAT-16 or FAT-32 data systems. Other data systems (e.g. NTFS) are not supported.

USB DEVICE

USB HOST

As the data rates of these hard disks are generally limited to 1 MB/s, a maximum of 13 channels of the MGCplus in 4 byte format with a maximum measurement rate of 19.2 kHz can be recorded.

This means that a maximum of 4 successive values may be displayed for each individual channel. This channel block is followed by information on date and time: TimeDate (30 Byte CHARACTER) The subsequent bytes to the end of the header area are reserved for future use and can be omitted. They are followed, data row by data row (in the example, we assume that Bit 0 (Gross) and Bit 2 (Peak value 1) are set), by the values: C1, 1 (Gross) C1: Channel 1 C1, 1 (PV1) C2, 1 (Gross) C2, 1 (PV 1) ________________________________ New data row C1, 2 (Gross) C1, 2 (PV 1) C2, 2 (Gross) C2, 2 (PV 1) Each value (measurement) occupies 4 bytes (data formats 1253=LONG and 1257=FLOAT) or 2 bytes (data format 1255=INT). Integer formats are stored in INTEL (TM) format, i.e. MSB > LSB. The data format used for recording will determine how the source values are re-scaled for each channel: 1253 (LONG): physical value = (binary source value) / (256*7680000) * MR + OS 1255 (INT): physical value = (binary source value) * 256 / 7680000) * MR + OS 1257 (FLOAT): physical value = (binary source value) MR: measuring range OS: offset

NOTE
the 1253 LONG format includes status information in the least significant byte. To call this status, you should check this byte, before (!) you scale, as dividing by 256 will cause the least significant byte to be lost.

The first of these always designates the local host, i.e. your own machine. The numbers 192.168.x.x refer to special IP addresses which are not forwarded over a router. Thus if a network is numbered 192.168.x.x this automatically ensures that the network cannot be accessed from outside. The net mask can be used to determine and define which nodes form part of the in-house network.

System Interface

Router If data packets are sent via node points, e.g. from the in-house network to the Internet or a WAN/LAN, a router is needed. This distributes data packets in different directions on the basis of their addresses. Routers are computers that have been specially designed for this purpose, and have their own operating system. It is their task to analyze millions of IP packets, read their headers and then forward them in the right direction.

If your computer has an IP address of, say, 172.34.24.13, your MGCplus should have the IP address 172.34.24.x (x13, x255) if you are using a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. When connecting an MGCplus to a PC through a hub, you need to use a patch cable. As delivered, the Ethernet interface for your CP42 is configured as follows:
