Chapter 1 Protocol Specification 6


CHAPTER 1 PROTOCOL SPECIFICATION
The MultiLoad auto-detects four low level computer protocols for host communications.
- Smith Protocol
- Brooks Protocol
- Daniels
- Modbus-RTU Protocol
Note: All unknown or not allowed signal or code sequences are rejected and have no impact on the
software or measurement data.
Host communication can occur via multi-dropped RS-232/RS-485 serial on COM 1 or Ethernet 10/100 socket
communication on port 7734.

1.1 DEFINITIONS
The non-printing characters that form the skeleton of the Smith and Brooks protocols are standard ASCII
(American Standard Code Information Interchange):

ASCII CHARACTER DECIMAL HEX BINARY
NUL 0 0 00000000
STX 2 2 00000010
ETX 3 3 00000011
SOH 1 1 00000001
PAD 127 7F 01111111

CHARACTER DESCRIPTION
BCC
Block Check Characters. The ASCII hex representation of the binary sum of all
the data in the message from the SOH through the ETX character.
LRC
Longitudinal Redundancy Check. The LRC is an ASCII character computed as
the exclusive or (XOR) sum of all characters following the STX and including
the ETX.
CRC Cyclic Redundancy Check.
A1..A3
A 3-character ASCII unit address of the MultiLoad. Please refer to the
MultiLoad User Guide for configuring the unit address.
D1..Dn Data field characters.
Fn Function field code.
Adr A single character binary unit address of the MultiLoad.

Chapter 1 Protocol Specification 7


1.2 SMITH PROTOCOL
The Smith protocol is compatible with devices from Smith Meter, such as the Accuload I and Accuload II mini
computer modes of operation. Using this protocol, MultiLoad accepts data in the format:

NUL STX A1 A2 data ETX LRC PAD

A1 and A2 are the last two digits of the unit address in the RCU configuration.
1.3 BROOKS PROTOCOL
The Brooks protocol is compatible with devices from Brooks Instruments such as their Petrocount RAU and
IMS Control units running in computer mode. Using this protocol, MultiLoad accepts data in the format:

SOH
DESTINATION SOURCE
A1 A2 A3 S1 S2 S3
STX data ETX
BCC
1
BCC
2


1.4 DANIELS PROTOCOL
The Daniels protocol is compatible with devices from Daniels Flow Products. Using this protocol, MultiLoad
accepts and responds with data in the format:
Quiet
Time
ADR FN
LEN
(2 252)
D1...DN CRC1 CRC2
Quiet
Time
Daniels protocol messages are framed by a quiet time of three and one-half characters.
ADR is binary character of the address of the MultiLoad. Typically 0x01.
Fn is expected to be 0x41/0x42 alternating on each command. Responses will have Fn as 0x41/0x42
for normal responses and 0xc1/0xc2 for exception responses.
D1Dn is string data containing the commands listed in this manual.

Note: Modbus extention to return larger packet sizes: On messages with data packet sizes from 2 to 252
characters the Fn values of 0x41/0x42 will be returned. With messages outside this range, Fn will be the MSB
value of the data size and the Len will be LSB of the data size.
For Example:
Fn = 0x41, Len = 0x80, when data packet size = 0x0080,
Fn = 0x42, Len = 0x80, when data packet size = 0x0080,
Fn = 0x00, Len = 0xFF, when data packet size = 0x00FF ( 255),
Fn = 0x01, Len = 0x00, when data packet size = 0x0100 ( 256),
Fn = 0x01, Len = 0x01, when data packet size = 0x0101 ( 257),
Fn = 0x02, Len = 0x00, when data packet size = 0x0200 ( 512),
Fn = 0x04, Len = 0x00, when data packet size = 0x0400 (1024),
Fn = 0x08, Len = 0x00, when data packet size = 0x0800 (2048).

Chapter 1 Protocol Specification 8

1.5 MODBUS-RTU PROTOCOL
The Modbus-RTU protocol has been implemented to be as compatible as possible with the original published
Modicon Modbus-RTU standard.
Note: The Modbus protocol allows parameter register access only as defined by the explicit mapping in
this manual. To send the ASCII commands (R000, T`A, MAM, MRS, etc.) that are handled by the other
three protocols, the Modbus Extended Services registers must be used.
Using the modbus protocol, MultiLoad accepts data in the following format:

Quiet
Time
ADR FN ... CRC1 CRC2
Quiet
Time

Modbus-RTU protocol messages are framed by a quiet time of three and one-half characters.
ADR is binary character of the address of the MultiLoad. Typically 0x01.
Fn is the Modbus function. Functions implemented are as follows.
The formal specification of Modbus lists the starting Holding Register address as 40001. The Modbus
Holding Register functions (Fn 3, 6 and 16) all have an implied 4XXXX reference. Referencing Holding
Register 40001 is addressed as register 0000 in the register address field in the message for fn 3, 6, and
16.
Since Modbus addressing has been implemented in various ways over the years, to avoid confusion in
this manual, the Modbus Holding Register addresses listed are the value in the register address field in
the message. If it is necessary to know the formal Modbus Holding Register address, simply add 40001
to the register addresses listed in the manual.

1.5.7 EXTENDED SERVICES REGISTER
Not all commands native to the MultiLoad II have corresponding mapping to Modbus registers. The Extended
Services register was implemented as a way to support sending and receiving native Multiload II commands
across the Modbus RTU interface. Any native command listed can be sent to the MultiLoad via the extended
Services Register.
Modbus Registers:
Write Holding Register=9000, Len=1, 16-Bit Integer (Command Length)
Write Holding Register=9001, Max Len=999, Characters (Command Text)
Read Holding Register=9000, Len=2, 32-Bit Integer (Reply Length)
Read Holding Register=9001, Max Len=999, Characters (Reply Text)
Perform the following operations to use of the Extended Services Register:
1. Write the Command Length into the Holding Register 9000 (max value of 999 characters).
2. Write the Command Text into the Holding Register 9001 (max length of 999).
3. Command will execute when the final character of the Command Text is written (9001+Command
Length-1).
4. Read the Reply Length from the Holding Register 9000 (max value of 999 characters).
5. Read the Reply Text from the Holding Register 9001 (max length of 999).
Steps 1 & 2 can be done with a single Modbus Function 16.
Steps 4 & 5 can be done with a single Modbus Function 3.


Chapter 2 MultiLoad Responses 11


CHAPTER 2 MULTILOAD COMMAND RESPONSES
<command_status> <rcu_status> <card_status> <command specific response data>

For MultiLoad to acknowledge a message two conditions must be meet. First the message must fit the
Message Framing Protocol with a valid LRC, BCC or CRC. Second, the address specified in the first two
characters of the command must match the configured MultiLoad address. Any message that satisfies both of
these requirements will be sent a response.
Modbus:
If using the Modbus protocol, the Modbus Extended Services Registers must be used to pass in
these ASCII string commands.
The first three characters of every response will contain command, RCU and card status data as defined below.
enum
{
VALID_COMMAND = 0,
INVALID_PARAMETER = 1,
INVALID_COMMAND = 2
} command_status;

enum
{
IDLE = '0',
AUTH_BAY = '4',
MENU_MODE = '9',
DIAG_MODE = '%',
AUTHORIZING_LOAD = 'A',
LOAD_AUTHORIZED = 'B',
COMPLETING_LOAD = 'C',
TRANSACTION_DONE = 'D',
TRANSACTION_CANCEL = 'E',
PULLING_TRANSACTION = 'P',
ARCHIVING_TRANSACTION = 'R',
TRANSACTION_AUTHORIZED = 'T',
RCU_NOT_CONFIGURED = '?',
RCU_POWER_UP = '!',
INITIALIZING = 'I',
NO_TRANSACTION = 'N',
REMOTE_AUTH_PRESET1 = 'a',
REMOTE_AUTH_PRESET2 = 'b',
REMOTE_AUTH_PRESET3 = 'c',
REMOTE_AUTH_PRESET4 = 'd',
REMOTE_AUTH_PRESET5 = 'e',
REMOTE_AUTH_PRESET6 = 'f',
REMOTE_AUTH_PRESET7 = 'g',
REMOTE_AUTH_PRESET8 = 'h',
Chapter 2 MultiLoad Responses 12

REMOTE_AUTH_PRESET9 = 'i',
REMOTE_AUTH_PRESET10 = 'j',
REMOTE_AUTH_PRESET11 = 'k',
REMOTE_AUTH_PRESET12 = 'l',
REMOTE_AUTH_PRESET13 = 'm',
REMOTE_AUTH_PRESET14 = 'n'
} rcu_status;
Modbus:
Read Only Register=7000, Len=1, Character (rcu_status)

enum
{
CARD_NOT_INSERTED =0,
CARD_INSERTED =1
} card_status;
Modbus:
Read Only Register=7001, Len=1, Character (card_status)

In most cases a command will return additional information specific to the command. This information will
always follow the three status characters. For example if the following valid command to read the current
firmware version is sent:

Command => Response
R000 => 0?0000MultiLoad II v3.29.xx Jan xx 2009

With 0?0 as the three status characters and 000MultiLoad II v3.29.xx Jan xx 2009 as the command specific
response.


Chapter 3 Query Command 13


CHAPTER 3 QUERY COMMAND:
Query Command => Response
Q => 0?0XXXX
Where:
XXXX = 4 digit hexadecimal number with bits representing the rcu_status as:
union
{
unsigned int value;
struct
{
unsigned char rcu_trans_header:1;
unsigned char proving_mode:1;
unsigned char power_up:1; // indicated system has been powered on
unsigned char configured:1; // indicates configuration state
unsigned char unassigned_keypress_on_load_screen:1;
unsigned char logmsg_queued:1; // a log message is available
unsigned char unused6:1;
unsigned char unused7:1;
unsigned char wm_logmsg_queued:1; // a w&m log message is available
unsigned char host_up:1; // host system is up, card in will be allowed.
unsigned char input_in_progress:1;
unsigned char input_done:1;
unsigned char keypad_locked :1; // is keypad locked or not
unsigned char reserved13:1;
unsigned char wm_key:1; // W&M key is active
unsigned char program_key:1; // Program key is active
} flags;
} rcu_status;

This command also resets the Host Down Timer and should be issued periodically to notify MultiLoad that the
Host is still active.

MultiLoad contains literally hundreds of registers that configure everything from message toggling delay to meter
factors. All of these registers are accessed using the same two commands.
To read the value of a register the command is R followed by the register and sub register numbers. The
response will be the register and sub register numbers, followed by the register value. The value may be up to
9 decimal digits.
To update the value of a register the command is U followed by the register and sub register numbers and the
value to be stored.
While almost all registers can be read or updated, a few have only read access. Many others have protection
that prevents updates while a transaction is in process, host system is up, or when Weights & Measures security
is in effect.

fcm address FCM addressing parameters.
This type is a bit-wise concatenation of four different FCM addressing parameters that is expressed as a single
register value.
struct fcm_address_type
{
unsigned char port_number:3; // FCM port range 0-7
unsigned char fcm_number:5; // FCM number range 0-31
unsigned char invert:1; // Normal signal = 0, Invert signal = 1
// For pulse outputs, single pulse = 0, dual pulse = 1
unsigned char enabled:1; // Disabled = 0, Enabled = 1
unsigned char ext_port:3; // ext_port(3) << 3 + port_number(3) => Port range 0-39
unsigned char unused:3;
};
Note: Register value is still an integer value not a binary structure.
For example, to specify port_number 4, fcm_number 1, normal signal, enabled, (0000,0,1,0,00001,100) the
numeric value of the bit-wise concatenation of these four different FCM addressing parameters would be
0x020C = 524.
For example, to specify port_number 11, fcm_number 3, normal signal, enabled, (0000,1,1,0,00011,011) the
numeric value of the bit-wise concatenation of these four different FCM addressing parameters would be

CHAPTER 8 COMMUNICATION TRACE EXAMPLE
The following is an example of a typical communication session with MultiLoad starting with host system
startup, driver card in, transaction authorization, batch authorization, end of batch processing, and host system
shutdown.
Upon startup it is recommended that the host system verify as many parameters as practical to avoid
problems during loading due to mis-configuration. If any parameters are different then expected the
discrepancy should be logged and startup should be aborted. Recommended parameters to check are:
Firmware Version
Configured bit is set.
Remote Processing is enabled.
Number of configured presets.
Number of meters, components and additives for all presets.

CHAPTER 9 DATA COMMUNICATION NOTES AND RECOMMENDATIONS
This topic provides some basic communications concepts, as well as Toptech's recommendations for achieving
optimum performance.

9.1 PROTOCOL SELECTION: RS-232 VS. RS-485
9.1.1 RS-232
RS-232 communications protocol was designed for point-to-point (i.e., computer to a single device)
communications for short distances. The actual specification for RS-232 distance is limited to 50 feet. In
practice, however, RS-232 communications can be successful at distances over 1000 feet. We generally try to
limit distances to 500-600 feet. RS-232 requires a minimum of 3 wires: Transmit, Receive and Signal ground
wires. More wires are required for hardware handshaking. RS-232 can work on straight, non twisted-pair wiring.
If existing wiring that is not twisted-pair must be used, then RS-232 protocol should be used.
9.1.2 RS-485
RS-485 communications protocol was designed for multi-point (i.e., computer to multiple devices, also called
multi-dropped) communications and can support distances over 5,000 feet. RS-485 requires 4 wires (2 twisted-
pair) for normal full-duplex communications. With special hardware, 2-wire half-duplex RS-485 can be
accomplished. RS-485 utilizes a transmit pair of wires (TDA and TDB) and a receive pair of wires (RDA and
RDB). A ground wire is not recommended normally, although some devices may have a terminal block for an
RS-485 ground. Most multi-dropped devices require RS-485 communications. When installing new wiring, RS-
485 twisted-pair wiring is preferred.

9.2 CABLE SELECTION
The speed and distance of communications is mostly affected by the capacitance and resistance of the wiring.
Copper wiring is generally low resistance, so this is not normally the limiting factor. Capacitance, however, can
vary greatly from one type of wire to another. In general, the larger the wire, the higher the capacitance. Wiring
size of 20 to 24 gauge is typically best for data communications. Capacitance of 16pf or less is preferred. With
16pf cable, 9600 baud communications can operate over 1000 feet for RS-232, and over 5000 feet for RS-485.
Doubling the capacitance will generally halve the baud rate or the distance.
Data communications cable should always be shielded. Individual wires or pairs do not need shielding, but an
overall shield should always be used. Whenever possible, always run data communications cable in conduit
and protected from moisture. Moisture can invade most cable coatings and disrupt data communications
integrity. For exposed routing or direct burial, Teflon coatings are recommended. Armored cable is also
available for running over-head without conduit.
RS-232 communications will work over almost any type of wiring, although speed and distance may be limited
by some wiring. Straight (individual) wires or twisted-pair wiring can be used. RS-485 communications requires
twisted-pair wiring with an impedance of 100 ohms.
For new installations, if you select wiring suitable for RS-485 wiring, it will always work for RS-232. This will
provide the ability to change from one communications protocol to another without replacing the wiring.

9.3 LINE TERMINATION IN MULTI-DROPPED COMMUNICATIONS
Toptech Systems has specialized hardware that will support multi-dropping of devices on a single RS-232
communication line. This is accomplished by tri-stating or disconnecting the transmitter of a device when it is
not transmitting on the communications line. This is similar to the RS-485 multi-dropping method. Due to the
tri-stating of the transmitters, the transmit circuit is 'floating' when no device is transmitting. This can sometimes
cause problems for the computer's receiver circuit, usually framing errors or break conditions.
Chapter 9 Data Communication Notes and Recommendations 117


To keep these problems under control, multi-dropped lines need line termination resistors installed. This can be
installed on the receiver of the line driver for the line. For RS-232 communications, a 500 to 1000 ohm resistor
is placed between the receive (RD) and signal ground (SG) wires of the line driver for the line. For RS-485
communications, a 220 to 270 ohm resistor is placed between the receive pair (RDA and RDB) wires of the line
driver for the line. Termination resistors actually weaken the driver's ability to transmit; therefore, when longer
lines are used or many devices are multi-dropped, the higher resistor values must be used. Unfortunately, the
proper value must sometimes be determined by experimentation. For RS-232, the resistor value must be large
enough to allow the transmitter to drive the voltage levels to at least +3VDC and -3VDC. For RS-485, the
resistor value must be large enough to allow the transmitter to produce a .25 VDC difference in the transmit pair,
but not large enough to disrupt the balance of the line. Too low of a resistor value will typically cause a short on
the data communications line and inhibit communications.
Please note that in RS-485 communications specifications, you will find that 100 ohm termination resistors are
recommended. This is a different type of line termination than what we are discussing here. The 100 ohm
termination is specifically for line balancing and is typically not required for baud rates less then 38,000 baud.
This is well above most PC data communications capabilities.

9.4 OPTICAL ISOLATION
Due to the major power fluctuations that may occur in an industrial environment and the effect of lightning
storms in an area with lots of piping, we recommend that any data communications line connecting devices
powered from different AC circuits be protected with optical isolation devices. The RS-232 to RS-485
converters that Toptech supplies provide this isolation. We also provide an RS-232 optical isolation device for
RS-232 lines. Similar devices are available from Black Box Corporation and Burr-Brown. One isolation device
must be installed on each data communications line. This is different from line drivers or short-haul modems
that require a device on each end.
Please note that any line termination used must be installed on the field side of the optical isolator. Also, optical
isolators are directional, which means that one side is for the computer (DCE) and the other side is for the field
equipment (DTE). They will not transmit data if installed backwards!

9.5 SHIELD GROUNDING

Due to all of the electrical noise generated by an industrial environment, all data communications cable must be
properly shielded. If not properly shielded, communications may work for a while, but you will most probably
experience intermittent communications errors and outages. Most data communications cable comes with good
shielding built in, but if not properly installed, the shielding will be ineffective. Proper installation requires that
the shield be attached to earth ground on ONE END ONLY, typically at the junction box on the computer end,
and MUST BE CONTINUOUS through all junction boxes out to the field equipment. In addition, the shield
should be taped back at each field device and should NEVER be connected to a field device. Unfortunately,
several of the field device manufacturers have terminal blocks labeled for attachment of the shield, and many of
their installation drawings indicate that the shield should be attached to the field devices. Under no
circumstances should the shield ever be attached to a field device!

When connecting through a junction box, care must be taken that the shields be treated just like any other wire.
The shield must remain continuous across the junction box. Don't tie multiple shields together. Route each
shield across the junction box, making sure that it does not short to the box or any other point. Inside of a
junction box, wires are typically unshielded. If a junction box is installed in an electrically noisy area, near
motors, etc., the junction box must be able to provide shielding. Also, AC wiring should not be run into a
junction box that has unshielded data communications wiring. Especially, AC circuits with loads that are
switching off and on or that have a high current flow must be avoided. These will introduce noise into the data
communications lines inside of the junction box.
