Setup Guide

Installation

To install your instrument, you will need to carry out the following steps:

Apply the engineering units label to the right-hand side of the display panel. A sheet of labels covering the most commonly used engineering units is supplied with all units. If the unit you require is not on the sheet, a blank label is provided on which you can use LETRASET™.

Install the instrument into a panel.

Make connections to the instrument.

PLEASE NOTE:

Ensure that the power to the instrument is switched off before carrying out any installation or maintenance work.

It is recommended that all connections to the terminals are made using ferrules to afford greater reliability and to prevent short circuits between adjacent terminals.

Avoid installing the instrument close to switch gear, contactors or motor starters.

Do not place signal and power supply wiring in the same loom.

Use screened cables or wires for all signal/sensor leads with screen earthed at one point only.

Panel Mounting

The instrument is supplied with an installation kit consisting of a mounting clamp, a panel sealing gasket and terminal connectors.

Ensure that there is sufficient space behind the instrument panel - the instrument requires a depth of 100mm (110mm when any options are fitted) plus enough space to allow safe routing of cables.

To install the instrument:

1.Make panel cut-out with the dimensions as shown overleaf. Panel thickness from 1.5mm to 9.5mm can be accommodated.

2.Fit the rubber seal by slipping it over the unit from the rear of the box and pushing it forwards until it sits behind the front lip of the unit.

3.Insert the instrument into the panel from the front, pushing it through as far as the front lip, to ensure correct seating of the rubber seal between the panel and the unit.

4.Working from behind the panel, take the mounting clamp, slide over the rear of the instrument and push forwards.

5.Continue to push the clip forward until the ratchet operates and the clamp is sufficiently compressed to apply adequate pressure on the panel.

Powering the Instrument

The instrument is designed to operate from an AC supply with voltages in the range 90 - 265V AC 50/60Hz mains supply with a maximum power consumption of 8VA when all outputs are fully loaded and the display has all segments illuminated.

WARNING - The instrument is designed for installation in an enclosure which provides adequate protection against electric shock. Access to power terminals should be restricted to authorised skilled personnel only. Application of supply voltages higher than those for which the instrument is intended may compromise safety and cause permanent damage.

The diagram below shows how the instrument should be connected to the mains supply. Isolation should be provided by a double pole switch and a time-delay 200mA fuse.

Sentry Digital Panel Indicator

Setup Guide

Menu Options

Input

Default: mV

inPt Allows the input type and range to be defined. There are 12 ranges for temperature measurement available. When a thermosensor range is selected, ie. J, K, t, r, S, n or RTD, the instrument will automatically set the appropriate scaling in oC.

Engineering Units

Default: Eng

unit Allows the user to define the units of measurement to be displayed in oC, oF and Eng (linear engineering units).

Decimal Position Default: 1

dP Defines the position of the decimal point for the display; 0 or 1 for

thermocouples/RTD and 0 to 3 for process inputs.

High and Low Display Values Default: Low = 000.0, high = 100.0

HdSP LdSP The low display value LdSP is used for scaling purposes

when combined with the other scaling parameters L-iP, HdSP, and H-iP. These 4 parameters can scale the measured input to any engineering units as long as the relationship between the displayed units is linear. LdSP is used to define the value to be displayed for an input defined by L-iP. HdSP is used to define the value to be displayed for an input defined by

H-iP.

High and Low Input Values

H-iP L-iP Correspond to the signal output values from the sensor

which will cause the instrument to display the values set as LdSP and HdSP. L-iP and H-iP can be input in mV, V, mA etc.

VAL rEAd There are 2 methods of setting the low and high input

values, either by manually entering a signal value using the VAL option or by sampling the sensor output using the rEAd option. Values entered

manually are entered in the same way as other numeric values (see Editing a Value page 11). The value to be entered will usually be

supplied with the data accompanying your sensor. However, if it is not available, the output from the sensor may be rEAd from an external

14 20-5110 Issue B

Sentry Digital Panel Indicator

Setup Guide

source by the instrument. When performing a rEAd input as part of the scaling process, the sensor must have the corresponding physical value applied. This may be pressure, weight, temperature etc. The instrument will sample the output from the sensor and save this as the L-ip and H-iP scaling parameters.

A example of scaling: 0 - 100 mV = 0 -1000 (psi)

LdSP = 0 L-iP = 0 (mV)

HdSP = 1000 H-ip = 100.0 (mV)

Display Filtering Default: 000

Filt This parameter is used to apply a digital filter to the display value.

The filter is defined in seconds which approximate to the time constant. This parameter would be used to damp out any effects from noisy signals.

Mains Frequency Default: 50Hz

MAin Set to the mains frequency dependent on the local mains supply.

Alarm Messages Display

Default: On

AdSP Enables display alarm messages when set to on or disables messages when set to oFF.

NOTE: Alarm 3 has the highest priority for messages and Alarm 1 has the lowest.

Alarm 1 Mode
