3.4.1 Batteries
For Optimum Performance of Your Batteries

This battery needs to be charged before use. Refer to the "Instructions for Use of the Battery
Recharger" section of this manual for charging instructions.

When the battery is charged for the first time, the charger may indicate that charging has been
completed after just 10 to 15 minutes. This is normal and can happen with any rechargeable
battery when it is first charged, or, if it has been stored unused for a prolonged period. Simply
remove the battery from the charger and repeat the charging procedure. There is no need to
discharge this battery between these charges.

Best charging results are obtained at normal room temperature, 70°F (21°C) +/- 8°F (2°C).
Charging beyond this range is permissible, but will not result in the battery's full capacity being
reached. Charging at temperatures below 50°F (10°C) or above 95°F (35°C) is not recommended.

It is normal for the battery to become warm during charging or after use.

It is not necessary to fully discharge this Nickel-MetalHydride battery before recharging. However,
top-off type charging can confuse the battery if charged this way consistently.

All rechargeable batteries will gradually lose their charge over time when they are left in storage. If
this battery will be left in storage for more than a few days prior to use, a top-off charge to regain
full capacity is recommended.

Remove this battery from the equipment, charger, or AC adapter when not in use. Store in a cool
dry place.

Wipe the metal terminals with a soft, dry cloth if they become dirty.

Safety Precautions for the Batteries

Do not disassemble or attempt to open the battery under any circumstances.

The battery can explode, leak or catch fire if heated or exposed to fire or high temperatures. Do
not short circuit the battery by directly connecting the metal terminals (+,-). Be certain that no
metal objects such as coins, paper clips, etc., touch the terminals.

Only use the charger recommended by the device manufacturer.

To Avoid Damage to this Battery

Do not drop this battery or subject it to mechanical shock.


Use this battery only with equipment that specifies its use.

Recycling Information

Duracell is committed to environmental responsibility and has established a program for recycling
this battery. For instructions on how to recycle this battery call: 1-800-551-2355 (in North America)
or contact your nearest Duracell business office.

3.4.1.1 Duracell
Power Indicator Operating Instructions

If your Duracell Rechargeable Battery has an external Power Indicator (not all models have this

Copyright Windrock, Inc. 1997, 1998


9 6300 Operations Manual

feature) please refer to the instructions below.

Duracell provides an accurate Power Indicator on the front of the battery to determine the amount
of power remaining in your battery.

To Operate the Power Indicator

Press gently on the round button until you hear a click. This activates the indicator, which will
display either one, two, three, or four lighted bars, indicating the amount of power remaining in your
battery.

Battery Indicator

The single bar will blink when the battery has less than 10% of power remaining.

Note: The power indicator display may not activate until after the battery has been fully
charged for the first time.

3.4.1.2 E-Moli

LITHIUM-ION STYLE BATTERY

You may identify the Lithium-Ion battery by the all black case and the "MOLICEL" logo on the top.
These batteries are Smart Technology batteries similar to the Duracell. There is a capacity bar on
the right and is activated by pressing the ON/OFF button. The Li-ION battery is lighter in weight
and higher in capacity.

Caution! Do not attempt to charge the Li-ION battery in a standard charger. There is a
great potential for the battery to EXPLODE. Use only a charger specified for
this type of battery.

Some batteries are sent in what is called the "off state". This means that the battery will not work
until it turned on. "How is this done?" A new battery is sometimes shipped in this state and needs
to be woken up. To do this, insert the battery into the left charger bay and press the "Re-calibrate"
button and let the battery sit for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove the battery and place it in the right side of
the charger and let charge fully. It should then operate correctly after a full charge.

3.4.2 Chargers
There are two types of battery chargers:

Span Charger

Energy Access Charger

3.4.2.1 Span Charger

Nickel Metal-Hydride Battery Charger (Span)


Older units have been supplied with Nickel Metal-Hydride batteries and chargers. These
batteries are slightly heavier and require more attention to charging & discharging or they will
build up a memory preventing full capacity to be obtained.

The charger supplied for these type of batteries will charge the battery pack in approximately
two to three hours. The battery may be left in the unit for extended lengths of time without
damage. Plug the wall adaptor into an outlet (100VAC - 240VAC/50-60Hz) and insert the plug
end of the power cable into the jack on the rear of the charger.

Insert one or two DR30 and/or DR36 batteries into the pocket(s) on the top of the charger.

Copyright Windrock, Inc. 1997, 1998


11 6300 Operations Manual

Lights near the pockets will illuminate to indicate the status of the batteries as follows:

Off: No battery detected


Red: Charging
Green: Fully charged
Yellow: Standby
Red flashing: Error

The charger will normally completely charge a DR30 or DR36 battery in less than three hours.
If two batteries are inserted, it will charge them sequentially. The light of the second battery
will be yellow, indicating a standby condition. The second battery will automatically commence
charging once the first battery is completed.

The charger monitors battery temperature and will not commence charging a pack if it is
outside a temperature range of 50°F-113°F (10°C-45°C). Any pack that is outside this range
will also be indicated by a yellow light.

An error indication will be given if the battery terminals are shorted or if the battery fails
to properly take a charge.

If your charger does not function as expected, check the following:

1) Make sure the wall adapter is properly connected.


2) Make sure there are no foreign objects lodged in the pockets.
3) Make sure the batteries are installed so that they properly mate with
the connector in the bottom of the pocket.

3.4.2.2 Energy Access

Lithium Ion Battery Charger (Energy Access)


Newer units shipped are supplied with one or more Lithium-Ion batteries. These are the latest
high capacity lightweight batteries available. They also have a special charger made just for
Lithium-Ion batteries.

Caution! Use of other charger may result in an explosion.


To use the Energy Access battery charger, plug the power supply (use the power supply -
PS2524 only) into an outlet (100VAC - 240VAC/50-60Hz) and insert plug end of the power
cable into the DC power jack on the charger. Insert a battery in one of the two bays. The LED
will illuminate to indicate the status of the battery as follows:

Off: No battery detected


Green Flash: Fast charging
Green Solid: Fully charged
Yellow Flash: Re-calibrating
Yellow/Green: Re-calibrated
Yellow Solid: Standby

Copyright Windrock, Inc. 1997, 1998


Read This First 12

Red Flash: Error

Caution! Connection other than indicated may result in permanent damage to the
unit.

Re-calibration:
SMBus Smart Batteries contain a microchip that monitors battery usage and tracks how much
capacity is available from the pack. It is possible for this process to accumulate errors,
however, due to temperature fluctuations, aging, self-discharge, and other
factors.

To keep the internal information as accurate as possible, it is occasionally necessary to run the
pack through the calibration cycle. This involves fully charging the pack, completely
discharging it, and then recharging it again. The charger performs these steps automatically
when a calibration is initiated.

To calibrate a pack, place it in the left bay and push the red arrow located between the bays.
This process can take 16 hours. Some packs do not have the capability to be re-calibrated.
The charger automatically senses this and simply drops back into the normal charge mode.

copied from line to line since they may all be of the same values.

Note: When entering numbers, a decimal point must be entered to complete the entry.
If one is not placed, an error in the number will result.

4.3 Hardware
Hardware Configuration
Before using the 6300, take the time to become familiar with the basic operation and set up. There
are a number of options, setup entries, and keystrokes with which you should be familiar prior to
taking your first set of data.

When you first receive your 6300 and turn it on, you will be in a "demo station" and "demo
machine" area. However, prior to your data collection, you must first set up your own stations,
machines, and databases for those machines. Subsequently, when the 6300 is turned on, you will
be positioned at the menu for the last used station and machine. This enables you to power down
the 6300 to exchange batteries and power back up to the current machine or station, thus saving
time in selecting the same station and machine again. From this menu you can select a new
machine or station by pressing "ESC" once or twice, respectively.

There are a basic set of configuration parameters that may be set on the 6300 to optimize the
operation for your needs located in the Hardware Configuration option of the Station Selection
Menu.

Use backlight: Typically set to yes.

Monitor type: Typically set to LCD. Color should be used if an external VGA
monitor is used and B&W if an eternal black & white monitor is used..

Use power save: Typically set to yes. If set to no, the processor runs at full speed and
the backlight will not turn off after one minute. This consumes greater
power and shortens battery life.

Use blinking: Typically set to yes. You may prefer to not have the cursor bar blink.
If so, set this option to no.

Screen width: Typically set to 40 column.

Ramdisk to use: This should be set to "D:" under normal operating conditions. The
CONFIG.SYS file must contain the command for ramdrive.sys.

Hardware Version: This is set by Windrock and should not be changed.

Install Graphics: This will automatically start the DOS Graphics command if you do not
have it set in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file. By using this setting having to
change the AUTOEXEC.BAT file for different printers isn't necessary.

Copyright Windrock, Inc. 1997, 1998


Getting Started 18

It is, however, necessary to restart the 6300 after a change has been
made to this setting.

Using Windows NT: Should always be set to NO on the 6300 itself. This is used if running
the program on a NT system in a laptop.

Text Cursor Style: The style of the cursor may be changed between ARROW, BAR,
BOX.

The 6300 contains a status line at the bottom of the display. This line contains information about
the battery capacity remaining and the date and time. The battery capacity is monitored when the
unit is operating from the battery. If the unit is on AC power, the status line will reflect this. As the
battery capacity drops to 10% a warning will display for every percent thereafter until 6% is
reached. At this point the 6300 will automatically turn off.

Caution! When the battery goes below 10%, save the current data and change the battery. Any
data stored up to this point is safe. Only data that is currently being collected and
displayed or setup information currently being entered could be lost.

Note: The following section is for "Non-Smart Battery Technology" users.

The 6300 contains a status line at the bottom of the display. This line contains information
about the battery voltage and the date and time. The battery voltage is monitored when the
unit is operating from the battery. If the unit is on AC power, the status line will reflect this by
reading approximately 24V. As the battery voltage drops to 10.0V, a warning will display. for
every percent thereafter until 6% is reached. At this point the 6300 will automatically turn off.

Caution! When the battery goes below 10.0V, save the current data and change the battery.
Any data stored up to this point is safe. Only data that is currently being collected
and displayed or setup information currently being entered could be lost.

5 Engine Setup
5.1 MachineEngine
Machine Configuration
The machine configuration data can be obtained from the manufacturer's data sheets.
Occasionally, not all the information is available from this source. It may be necessary to call the
manufacturer to enlist their help with the missing information. As a last resort, there are databases
that have been developed that can help you obtain missing information. When you use this
information, it is up to you to verify the accuracy.

Note: In the following setup screens, use the left or right arrow keys to select from the choices
available, or enter the numeric values as required.

If you are using a shaft encoder select 360 pulses per revolution, and if you are using a magnetic
speed pickup select 1 pulse per revolution. When using the "Multi-Event Encoder" you may enter
'n' number of pulses (e.g. a gear).

Offset: is used in cases where TDC is shifted from it's normal position. For example, a magnetic
pickup can't be physically mounted at TDC therefore, there is a known offset plus or minus from
TDC.

Num of power cylinders:set to zero if this is a motor driven compressor. It will then reduce the
number of setup screens required.

Num of compressors cyl: set to zero if there are no compressor cylinders attached. It will then
reduce the number of setup screens required.

If you have an engine with articulated connecting rods, select yes for Power cyl articulated. This
will require additional information and additional "Machine Configuration" screens will be present.
See articulation setup information later in this section.

Rated Load: Enter the rated load from manufacturer's specifications.

Rated Speed: Enter the rated speed from manufacturer's specifications.

Note: When entering numbers, a decimal point must be entered to complete the entry. If one is
not placed, an error in the number will result.

Overall efficiency: Is the product of the mechanical and compression efficiency. By convention,
the overall efficiency of industrial compressors is set at 0.85.

Mechanical efficiency: Is the ratio of the indicated horsepower (IHP) to the brake horsepower
(BHP). By convention, the mechanical efficiency of industrial compressors is set at 0.95.

Auxiliary load (HP): Enter the total BHP of any additional pieces of equipment driven from the
crankshaft.

Note: Mechanical efficiency, overall efficiency, and auxiliary horsepower are used for
compressor calculations only.

Ignition system neg pulling: Enter yes if the ignition system you are analyzing goes negative with
respect to ground.

21 6300 Operations Manual

Input bore, stroke, and connecting rod length

Note: If you input each cylinder's bore, stroke, and connecting rod length individually you can
press the "ENTER" key and all the data from the previous line will be transferred to the
new line.

The schematic given by the manufacturer will usually have the information necessary to calculate
the angles at which each cylinder will be at TDC when referenced to the number one cylinder.

Note: Phase angles are associated to a cylinder name (i.e. PL1 = Power Cylinder Left Bank #1).
You will need to remember this for other parts of the setup.

The 6300 has additional features which may be set up to help in the analysis process. These
features do not necessarily need to be set up but, can be very helpful for analysis. The events
and angles entered on the next three screens will be available on graphics screens or in reports.

Input manufacturer timing events for "Port and Valve Opening and Closing". This information will
provide on-screen references for vibration events.

Should you have a "Fuel Valve", input the manufacturers recommended timing. This information
will provide on-screen references for vibration events.

As an analyst, you may want to take advantage of the report feature which enables you to report
on up to the 10 most important pressures of the PT curve.

Enter up up to ten angles which will have the pressure values printed in the report after data has
been collected.

Note: The angle 0.0 is a default in the report as it is the TDC reference.

Units that have articulated engines will contain and additional three setup screens. For additional
information on articulation see Appendix 'C'

Identify each connecting rod as a master or as articulated. This setup is a sample in which two of
the rods are masters.

Input the: Master Rod Length


Master Stroke
Link Radius or Articulation Radius
Link Rod Length or Articulation Rod Length

For articulated rods you need to input the bank and bale angle for that cylinder.

5.2 FixedEngine
Fixed Data Scale Input
It is suggested that you set up fixed scales to provide consistent data display. Below are
suggested starting points for the scales you set up. Others may be needed dependent on your
particular needs. Pressure ranges are dictated by the expected peak firing pressure. Sometimes
manufacturers provide maximum limits. Vibration and ultrasonic ranges should be fairly constant
for all units.

Copyright Windrock, Inc. 1997, 1998


Engine Setup 22

Set up pressure range scales based upon expected maximum peak firing pressures for your unit.
You can change scales if needed after data collection.

Set up vibration range scales in g's. This scale may need to be adjusted for different units. As a
starting point use -5g's to 5g's. You can change scales if needed after data collection. This scale
can be used for engines and compressors.

Set up ultrasonic range scales. This scale may need to be adjusted for different units. As a
starting point use -10 to 10. You can change scales if needed after data collection. This scale can
be used for engines and compressors.

Note: Other fixed scale definitions may be required for your setup. The ones shown are typical
setups.

5.3 PointEngine
Machine Data Point Setup
Engine Pressure Point

Set up cylinder pressures in the order in which you expect to collect the data. Give a detailed
name that gives test point location and pressure sensor range. This will alleviate problems
associated with using the wrong transducer. It may be helpful to write down a planned route
before you start entering it into the computer. Distinguish cylinders 1-10 or 1L-5L and 1R-5R.

Example:
Cyl #1 Power Pressure (0-1000)
Cyl #2 Power Pressure (0-1000)
Cyl #3 Power Pressure (0-1000)
Cyl #4 Power Pressure (0-1000)

Note: The 1V - 5V scales for the AC pressure transducer should be as follows:


For example, if you are using a 0-3000 psig sensor. 1V = 600 and 20 ma
= 3000. 4 ma is set to 20% of full scale.

Head Vibration Point

Set up cylinder and frame vibrations in the order in which you expect to collect the data. Give
a detailed name that gives test point location and vibration frequency range. A sample setup
may look like this:

Cyl #1 HD/BOLT (HIGH FREQ)


Cyl #2 HD/BOLT (HIGH FREQ)....

Cyl #1 HD/BOLT (ULTRASONIC)


Cyl #2 HD/BOLT (ULTRASONIC)....

Cyl #1 FUEL VALVE (ULTRASONIC)


Cyl #2 FUEL VALVE (ULTRASONIC)....

FRAME VIB (WEB #1) LOW FREQ


FRAME VIB (WEB #2) LOW FREQ....

Note: When using high and low frequency vibration, use a gain of 5. When using ultrasonic, set

the 4 ma line to 0 and set the 20 ma line to 10.

Note: Scale may be set to "Scale to exhaust blowdown" for analysts who wish to have the
vibration scale automatically set to 1/4 of the mean amplitude level at the exhaust
blowdown event.

Power Cyl Ultrasonic Point

Low Freq Vibration Point

Spark Point
Low frequency points are used to detect mechanical knocks, such as loose wrist pins, loose
piston nut, and other mechanical faults.

Set up a spark plug voltage vs. crank angle for each spark plug. Distinguish the plugs so that
they are easily identified: Top/Bottom, Right/Left, Right/Center Left, etc.

Note: The maximum voltage is typically set to 50,000 but, may need to be adjusted depending
on the diameter of the secondary ignition wire.

Angular Velocity Point

By having angular velocity test point, you will be able to graphically display the speed of the
flywheel over 360 degrees.

Note: The machine setup must have the number of pulses-per-revolution set to greater than one
to acquire angular velocity. Angular velocity can not be obtained from a single magnetic
pickup, a single optical pickup, or single hall effect pickup.

Panel Reading Point

Infrared Temperature

Note: The infrared temperature sensor is always assigned to the channel one input on the
6300.

Caution! Do not try to re-arrange the data point setup after taking a set of data. The point list
and data are linked together. Use the collection point setup to group the points as
needed.

5.4 CollectionEngine
Collection Point Setup

Collection point setup is used to expedite data collection by following a predefined order with
multiple sensors selected for simultaneous data collection. It is not necessary to set up all test
points here because you can always use the "MANUAL SELECTION OF SENSORS" option while
you are at the unit.

Analyzing an engine requires the use of statistics obtained from the pressure time curve and

secondary ignition data. As you will notice, the first data collection point setup screen has only
cylinder pressure and secondary ignition test points. The "Number of Cycle in Average" is set to
30. The "Number of Cycles in Average" is a user defined number up to 250.

The second data collection test point setup is on the same cylinder. It collects data from the head
bolt in both high frequency and ultrasonic, as well as cylinder pressures. This configuration will
only take one cycle of data for display.

The third data collection test point setup continues on the same cylinder. This time, the vibration
accelerometer and ultrasonic are moved to the fuel valve.

Continue the sequence for all remaining cylinders.

Miscellaneous
The 6300/6310 is capable of providing several specialized reports. For the engine, the engine
performance report and ignition report are available. One further step is required to complete the
engine setup when reporting is required. Data points must be assigned to the reports in order to
get proper information out.

Section 9 of this manual will show the steps required to implement reporting.

6 Getting Started
6.1 MachineComp
Machine Configuration
The machine configuration data can be obtained from the manufacturer's data sheets.
Occasionally, not all of the information is available from this source. It may be necessary to call
the manufacturer to enlist their help with the missing information. As a last resort, there are
databases that have been developed that can help you obtain missing information. When you use
this information, it is up to you to verify the accuracy.

Using the left or right arrow key, select from the choices available. If you are using an encoder
select 360 pulses per revolution, and if you are using a magnetic speed pickup select 1 pulse per
revolution. If you have no power cylinders, set this to zero. It will then reduce the number of
screens that are in "Machine Configuration".

Industry standards for efficiencies are:

Overall Efficiency 85%


Mechanical Efficiency 95%

These can be something different should you choose.

Auxiliary load (HP) is anything that was added on to the unit that is not factored into the rated
horsepower at a rated speed.

This is information that is usually easy to obtain, but should you have trouble obtaining a
connecting rod length a general rule of thumb is 2-1/2 times the length of the stroke. Verify this
information.

Just input the phase angles for the head end only. The crank end is always assumed to be 180
degrees different. A manufacturer's schematic will usually have the information necessary to
calculate the angles at which each cylinder will be at outer dead center when referenced to one
cylinder.

Note: Phase angles are associated to a cylinder name (i.e. CH1). You will need to remember
this for other parts of the setup.

Should a unit have two pistons in line, the tail rod diameter needs to be subtracted out of the bore
size for that cylinder end.

Maximum allowable rod load in compression and tension are available in the manufacturer's data
sheets.

Enter the mass of the reciprocating parts for a cylinder to calculate inertia forces into the rod load
calculations. The reciprocating parts typically include the piston, rod, and other pieces as known.

A gas analysis needs to be setup in "Gas Composition" and the names that we established there
will be available here. It is possible to have different cylinders or cylinder ends that are moving
different gases.

Getting Started 26

6.2 FixedComp
Fixed Data Scale Input
It is suggested that you setup fixed scales to provide consistent data display. Below are suggested
starting points for the scales you set up. Pressure ranges are dictated by the number of stages
you have. Vibration ranges should be fairly consistent for all units. Should these ranges not work
for your particular unit, modify these screens as necessary.

Set up pressure range scales that make sense for your unit. You can use stage pressure ranges
as a guideline. These fixed scales allow for consistent displays for viewing patterns. It is not a
problem to change the scales after data collection if they are either too small or too large for scale.

Set up vibration range scales in g's. This scale may need to be adjusted for different units. As a
starting point use -2 g's to 2 g's. It is not a problem to change the scale after data collection. This
scale can be used for engines and compressors.

Set up ultrasonic range scales. This scale may need to be adjusted for different units. As a
starting point use -5 to 5. It is not a problem to change the scales after data collection. This scale
can be used for engines and compressors.

6.3 PointComp
Machine Data Point Setup
Cylinder Pressure point

Setup cylinder and nozzle pressures in the order in which you expect to collect the data. Give a
detailed name that gives test point location and pressure sensor range. This will alleviate
problems associated with using the wrong transducer. It is best to write down a planned route
before you start entering it into the computer.

Cyl #1 HE Pressure (0-2000)


Cyl #1 CE Pressure (0-2000)

Note: The 4 ma - 20 ma scales should be set to the pressure sensor range. For example, if you
are using a 0-300 psi sensor, 4 ma = 0 and 20 ma = 300.

Vibration Point

Set up valve and cross head vibrations in the order in which you expect to collect the data. Give a
detailed name that gives test point location and vibration frequency range. This will help identify
what pattern you are looking at. A sample setup may look like this:

Cyl #1 X-HD Hor (Low Freq)


Cyl #1 X-HD Hor (High Freq)
Cyl #1 X-HD Ver (High Freq)
Cyl #1 CE S3 (High Freq)
Cyl #1 CE S4 (High Freq)

Note: When using high and low frequency vibrations, use a gain of 5. When using ultrasonic, set
4 ma to 0 and 20 ma to 10.

27 6300 Operations Manual

Ultrasonic Point

Cyl #1 CE S4 (Ult)
Cyl #1 CE S3 (Ult)

Cylinder Vibration Point

Suction Temperature Point

Set up suction temperatures per stage as manual inputs. A sample setup may look like this:

1st Stage Suction Temp

NOTE: The infrared temperature sensor may be used instead of manual input of data. It is always
attached to channel one of the 6300. Please refer to the "Engine Setup" section to see
those setup screens". A lso, compressor gauge readings may be entered using the "Panel
readings" point setup.

Discharge Temperature Point

NOTE: A emperature point should be setup for each stage suction and cylinder discharge. These
temperatures are used for compressor reports.

Set up discharge temperatures per cylinder as manual inputs. A sample setup may look like this:

Cyl #1 Discharge Temp


Cyl #2 Discharge Temp
Cyl #3 Discharge Temp

Collection Point Setup


Collection Point Setup is used to expedite data collection by following a predefined order with
multiple sensors selected for simultaneous data collection. It is not necessary to set all test points
up here. For example, it may only be necessary to collect enough data on the cylinder to
accurately determine if further investigation is necessary.

Ch 1 > Cyl #1 HES1 (HIGH FREQ)


Ch 2 > Cyl #1 HE Pressure (0-1000)
Ch 3 > Cyl #1 HES1 (ULT)

This would be enough information to preliminarily determine the health of the cylinder. If
something is identified with these readings, other test points should be collected to further identify
cylinder malfunctions.

6.4 Gas
Gas Composition Setup
Set up gas analysis based upon most current operating gas analysis of the unit. It is possible to

Copyright Windrock, Inc. 1997, 1998


Getting Started 28

have more than one gas in a unit. The analyzer will accept up to six pre-defined gas mixtures per
machine.

Each of the six entries can be given a name that will be referred to in other parts of the setup
procedure. To enter the actual gas mixture, select the number or hit ENTER while on the selected
position and you will be taken to the entry screens as shown below.

The gas mixtures must be entered in either percent or mole fractions. The total must be 100 or
1.00 respectively. If they are not a warning will appear when trying to save the setup.

6.5 CompCalc
Compressor Calculation Setup
Match suction stage temperatures and cylinder discharge temperature to cylinder end as set up in
"Machine Configuration".

Note: Use the right arrow key to bring up a selection list.

6.6 SoftConf
Software Configuration
Software configuration allows several factors to be preset for the graphical display. These are
permanent settings vs. temporary (i.e. they become the defaults).

Smoothing factor is a factor used in averaging out the data. If, for instance a factor of 2 is used,
two data points before and two data points after are used to average out the data for each point in
the curve. A smoothing factor can be set for each type of curve displayed. Typically the default is
set to one.

Divisions in HP cal: This sets how fine the increment is in dividing up the PV curve. The range is
1000 to 3000. Using a higher number gives more accuracy in the HP calculation, but slows down
the calculation time.

Number of strip charts: This tells the display how many strip charts to allow. The range is 2 to
10. Using a higher value will tend to make the plots more unreadable.

Enable auto stripchart: "Yes" will set the display to plot data as if it were on a strip chart recorder.
No, will set the display to overlay plot data one on top the other.

Note: Stripcharting is for vibration and ultrasonic traces only.

Minimum spark level: This is the minimum level used to recognize mis-fires and erroneous
adjacent plug crosstalk.

Data Collection Part I 30

7 Data Collection Part I


7.1 General
General
Data Collection is used to acquire data from the machine being analyzed. There are certain
requirements associated with data collection that must be adhered to. These will be pointed out in
the following paragraphs.

The "Data Collection Menu" is arranged in an order to help facilitate the process of data collection.

First, collection of manual data such as temperatures (suction and discharge) will provide more
specific on-screen calculation information.

Second, the DC pressure sensors must be zeroed.

Third, New data is collected.

Below are detailed description of each menu selection.

Input manual data: Used to collect gauge readings from panels and other readout
devices. Most importantly, use this function to collect Stage Suction
temperatures and Cylinder Discharge temperatures. These two
measurements are required for calculations and are critical for
accurate calculation results.

Zero DC press sensors: This function is used to set the reference point for DC pressure
sensors. This is critical in acquiring accurate pressure
measurements. The typical procedure for this function is to warm the
sensor up to operating temperature by placing the sensor on the
indicator port and exposing it to the hot gas. After a short period
remove the sensor from the pressure and hit "ENTER" to collect the
ZERO reference.

Take new data: This function begins the process of data collection. See the following
pages for a complete description of functions available.

O-Scope mode: This function is used to collect and display oscilloscope style data.
See Section 7 for a complete description of the functions available.

Timebase/FFT mode: This function is used to collect and display timebase and FFT data.
See Section 7 for a complete description of the functions available.

Spark trace mode: This function is used to collect and display ignition data. See Section
7 for a complete description of the functions available.

7.2 Manual
Input Manual Data

31 6300 Operations Manual

This sub-menu provides for the input of manual data in three ways. First, "Take temperature
reading" uses the infrared temperature sensor connected to channel one of the 6300/6310.
Second, "Input manual temp reading" brings up a data entry screen where the temperature can be
typed in. Third, "Input panel reading" provides a data entry screen for miscellaneous gauge
readings from local panels.

"Take temperature reading" displays a pop up point list to select from. Next select the input
channel the infrared sensor is connected to.

Pop Up Point List

Note: The infrared temperature sensor is assigned to to the channel one input on the
6300/6310.

"Input manual temp reading" displays a pop up point list to select from. After selection a data
entry screen appears and a number may be entered via the keypad. If the data will be entered at a
later date (e.g. temperatures are written down from gauges), the time & date will need to be
entered for the date the dynamic data was taken.

Caution! Reports are based on a 24 hour day. The reports use the last values taken for a 24
hour day (i.e. data taken at 11PM in the evening that continues over midnight will be
two different dates).

To alleviate the situation where readings are written down and entered at a later time, there is an
additional prompt to verify the correct time & date.

Pop Up Point List

Data Entry Screen

When the input box appears enter the value and press "ENTER". Press "7" to save and advance
to the next point or press "4" to exit. If you press "4" you will be prompted to verify that you want to
exit without saving the data.

Date & Time Verification

Verification Screen

Enter Correct Date & Time

"Input panel reading" provides a pop up point selection list and data entry screen for entering
values similar to input manual temperatures.

Again, to alleviate the situation where readings are written down and entered at a later time, there
is an additional prompt to verify the correct time & date.

7.3 Zero

measurements. If zeroing is not done the PT data acquired may have an arbitrary offset.

Note: This procedure reduces the effect of thermal zero drift in the sensor.

The typical procedure for this function is to warm the sensor up to operating temperature by
placing the sensor on the indicator port and exposing it to the hot gas. After a short period (two to
three minutes) remove the sensor from the pressure and zero the input channel. Using the
following procedure.

Sensor Zeroing

To zero a pressure sensor input select channel 1, 2, 3, or 4, and press "ENTER". When finished
zeroing all required channels, press "6" to finish to process. If you wish to re-zero the sensor,
repeat the above steps.

Typical values for zeroing should be a low of 3.90 ma to 4.10 ma with a difference of not more than
0.10 ma. If the numbers vary too much from these values there may be a problem with the
transducer.

Caution! If you turn off the analyzer or leave the software program, you will have to re-zero the
sensors.

Data Collertion Part II 36

8 Data Collertion Part II


8.1 OScope
O-Scope Mode
The OSCOPE mode allows the user to utilize the 6300 as a digitizing oscilloscope. Any signal
(pressure, vibration, ultrasonic, temperature, etc.) that can be used with the 6300 may be viewed in
a time-domain mode by the digitizing OSCOPE mode. Example of the utility of OSCOPE are
viewing ultrasonic real-time signals to detect leaks; viewing multiple real-time traces of cylinder
pressure to observe variability of cycles; and observing real-time vibration signals to find knocking
or detonation.

When OSCOPE is started there are several options and choices displayed. Using the right/left
arrow keys you may set up this mode as required. Below are a list of the possible settings.

STEP SIZE: The time between digitized samples of the signal. For a 300 RPM
engine 1 milli sec is a good selection.

Options: 15µsec - 800µsec & 1msec - 100msec

TRIGGER: TRIGGER LEVEL is the voltage level where scope triggering


occurs if then trigger is not set to FREE RUN.

Typical: 0.0000

COUNT: The number of samples that one window displays. The time
length of a screen window is the STEP SIZE X COUNT. Normally
on a recip, one wants the screen window at least one rotation of
the machine, If more rotations are desired, either increase the
STEP SIZE or increase the COUNT.

Typical: 200

BANK: BANK and CYLINDER identify the signal for storage in the
database.

Options: L(eft), R(ight), S(traight)

CYLINDER: 0-9

CHANNEL: CHANNEL is the physical connector that the sensor is plugged


into.

Options: 1, 2, 3, 4

CHANNEL TYPE: CHANNEL TYPE tells the 6300 what kind of sensor is selected.
Select CURRENT LOOP for ultrasonic, temperature, and DC
pressure. Select VOLTAGE for accelerometer and AC pressure.

Options: VOLTAGE or CURRENT LOOP

TRIGGER TYPE: TRIGGER TYPE is just like an oscilloscope. FREE RUN is no


triggering. POSITIVE triggers when the voltage is positive going
and reaches the TRIGGER LEVEL. NEGATIVE triggers when the

Copyright Windrock, Inc. 1997, 1998


37 6300 Operations Manual

voltage is negative going and reaches the TRIGGER LEVEL.

Options: FREE RUN, POSITIVE, NEGATIVE

UPPER SCALE: UPPER SCALE is the voltage level of the top of the oscope
window. Full scale is 5.000.

Typical: 5.00000

LOWER SCALE: LOWER SCALE is the voltage level of the bottom of the oscope
window. Full scale is -5.000 for voltage signals and -3.000 for current loop signals.

Typical: -5.0000 Voltage signals


-3.0000 Current signals

ACCEL GAIN: ACCEL GAIN is the amplification factor for voltage signals
(accelerometer and AC pressure). The real sensor voltage is the
screen display divided by the ACCEL GAIN.

Options: 1, 5, 10, 20

When the selections are correct, press END to start the real-time signal display. While the display
is shown, the user may stop the display by pressing 3, store the waveform on disk by pressing 5,
or exiting the display by pressing ESC.

8.2 FFT
Timebase / FFT Mode
This section of the manual deals with using the spectrum analyzer mode of the 6300 analyzer.

Functions

This menu option is similar to a two channel spectrum analyzer. Data is collected based on the
setup and is then displayed. There are several options available to manipulate the collected data:
First, standard averaged or non averaged FFT and timebase data; Second, Time synchronous
averaged data for eliminating background noise; Third, Peak hold data for finding the maximum
amplitudes at certain frequencies.

The "peak trigger" mode allows for structural 'bump' testing to find resonate frequencies.0

ID: Allows the user to enter up to 10 characters for the channel


description

GAIN: Allows the user to set the gain for accelerometers and other
constant current devices up or down to allow for better resolution
of the input signal.

RUN SPEED: A RPM value may be entered in this field for use on graphs when
a once-per-turn marker is not available. This value is used in lieu
of true RPM for the orders cursor display.

AVERAGES: Set the number of averages to sample. This can be set from 1 to
100.

AVE MODE: Select from one of the following:

Instantaneous No averaging is done.


Linear + Averaging is done without regard to shaft
position.
Linear - (Not implemented in this version.)
Time Synchronous Averaging is done with respect to shaft
position.
Peak The maximum amplitude for each frequency
is kept over the number of averages taken.

LINES: This parameter controls the number of lines that make up the
frequency spectrum in the baseband. The values for this parameter are 200, 400, 800, and 1600
(except @ 625 Hz which is limited to 800). Using more lines increases frequency resolution, but
requires more data samples to be acquired, which takes more time.

FMAX: Sets the upper frequency for FFT analysis.

FFT WINDOW: Selects the type of weighting function applied to the input signals
before they are transformed into frequency spectra.

Rectangular Boxcar type window; used for shorter transients.


Hanning Recommended for most continuous data

REPORTING
This section covers the type of reports available and the steps required to setup the reports. There
are four types of reports currently available in the 6300. They are:

Compressor Report
Engine Report
Ignition Report
Manual Panel Reading Report

The "Compressor Report" gives details about the compressors performance based on the data
collected. This is a tabular listing of parameters associated with the compressor such as IHP,
BHP, Flow Balance, etc.

The "Engine Report" gives details about the engines performance based on the data collected.
This is a tabular listing of parameters associated with the engine such as IHP, peak firing pressure,
etc.

The "Ignition Report" gives details about the ignition performance such as statistical values, peaks,
timing, etc. This is a tabular listing.

The "Manual Panel Reading Report" displays a tabular list of values entered during a data
collection period. This report will help document the panel gauge readings and general operating
condition of the unit when the dynamic data was taken.

This figure shows the menu options available for reports. Prior to running any of the reports, they
must be set up to present the proper data. See the setups in the following paragraphs.

Encoder Setup 46

11 Encoder Setup
11.1 Encoder
Several fittings have been provided for adapting the encoder to your needs. It is preferred that a
direct connection be used over a friction connection. It is possible that a friction connection can
slip, causing instability in the encoder signal. If the friction connection must be used, clean the
flywheel surface to remove any grease or oils that could cause slippage.

Mount the encoder assembly on the tripod provided. Adjust the tripod height to center the encoder
shaft with the center of the flywheel. If needed, use the provided elastic cord to provide additional
stability by placing the cord around the tripod neck and securing it to the machine frame.

Once the encoder is set up, attach the 50 foot encoder cable to the connection marked "TO 6300".
Prior to taking data, make sure the "STROKE 4 - 2" switch is set properly for the engine type
(defined in the machine setup). Also make sure that the number of pulses per revolution is set to
the correct number.

Caution! On four cycle machines, do not switch the encoder or change the software
configuration when moving from the engine to the compressor. The 6300 and
software know the difference between the engine 4-cycle 0-720 and
compressor 0 to 360 .

Also, it must be noted here that in order to collect Angular Velocity information, you must be able to
collect more than one pulse per revolution.

The "PHASE A-B" switch is provided to give the user the ability to shift data collection 360 degrees
on four cycle engines, as necessary; for instance, if you are collecting data on a 4 cycle diesel
engine and are unsure as to which stroke TDC is set.

Copyright Windrock, Inc. 1997, 1998


47 6300 Operations Manual

The shaft encoder is directly powered by the 6300/6310. Note that, if the encoder cable is
disconnected, the encoder will retain it's settings and TDC for up to one hour. This allows the
6300/6310 to be disconnected and reconnected as necessary without disruption except as
cautioned above.

Please note that in four-cycle mode, the encoder uses the A/B switch to swap between the power
and exhaust stroke. This setting is retained as long as the encoder is connected to the 6300/6310
and powered up.

Caution! Note that the software uses power conservation methods which will power
down the encoder while outside the data collection menu (this will turn off
power to the encoder). Either of these situations will re-power the encoder in
a undetermined state for the power/exhaust cycle. To avoid this situation, do
not disconnect the encoder and use the power save setting under hardware
configuration and set it to NO.

Caution! Make sure the BNC terminator (a shorting connector) is placed on the "MAG
PU" input when not in use. This will reduce ignition interference in the
encoder.

Note: It is strongly recommended that TDC be checked periodically, at least prior to


and after data collection.

11.2 Multi-Event
The multi-event encoder provides for attachment of either an optical pickup (WRI P/N: A6056-00-
06) or a magnetic pickup (WRI P/N: A6012-00-00) for TDC measurement. In addition, a magnetic
pickup can be used to measure individual teeth on a gear or flywheel for more resolution of
crankangle.

Copyright Windrock, Inc. 1997, 1998


Encoder Setup 48

A strobe light can be attached to the multi-event encoder to check the positioning of the TDC
event. Note that the forward/reverse switch has no effect on the TDC offset.

Once the multi-event encoder is set up, attach the 50 foot encoder cable to the connection marked
"TO 6300". Prior to taking data, make sure the "STROKE 4 - 2" switch is set properly for the
engine type (defined in the machine setup). Also, make sure that the number of pulses per
revolution is set to the correct number.

Caution! On four cycle machines, do not switch the encoder or change the software
configuration when moving from the engine to the compressor. The 6300/6310
and software know the difference between the engine 4-cycle 0 to 720E and
compressor 0 to 360E.

Also, it must be noted here that in order to collect Angular Velocity information, you must be able to
collect more than one pulse per revolution.

The "PHASE A-B" switch is provided to give the user the ability to shift data collection 360 degrees
on four cycle engines, as necessary; for instance, if you are collecting data on a 4 cycle diesel
engine and are unsure as to which stroke TDC is set.

Caution! Make sure the BNC terminator (a shorting connector) is placed on the "MAG
PU" input when not in use. This will reduce ignition interference in the encoder.

11.3 Mag
A magnetic or hall effect sensor may be used with the shaft encoder or the multi-event encoder.
To use these devices, they must be placed on the machine with a known reference to TDC to
ensure proper timing information. Connect these devices to the connector marked "MAG
PICKUP".

A self-contained optical type pickup with a TTL output may be used with the shaft encoder or the
multi-event encoder. The WINDROCK optical sensor may be used directly with the multi-event
encoder. To use this type device, it must be placed on the machine with a known reference to
TDC to ensure proper timing information. If the self-contained style pickup is used, connect this
device to the connector marked "MAG PICKUP". Reflective tape must be placed on the flywheel
or rotating element at the TDC position for proper timing information.

11.4 TimingLight
With the encoder set up, attach the timing light to the connector marked "STROBE". Aim the
timing light at the timing marks on the engine flywheel and pull the trigger switch.

With the trigger switch pulled, and while observing the flywheel, look for the timing marks.
Using the toggle switch, you can adjust movement clockwise or counterclockwise as
necessary to bring the timing marks into view. Each toggle of the switch moves one-half

Copyright Windrock, Inc. 1997, 1998


49 6300 Operations Manual

degree of rotation.

Once TDC has been found, the timing light should be disconnected from the encoder to
conserve battery power.

Caution! The timing mark is crucial for accurate analysis. Make sure that there is only
one timing mark on the observed surface. Having more than one timing mark
will cause confusion and create the possibility of collecting data based on the
wrong TDC of the machine.

11.5 Wireless Transmitter


If your system has been supplied with a wireless transmitter and receiver, these will take the place
of the 50 foot interconnect cable. By attaching the transmitter to the encoder, the transmitter will
transmit the TDC measurement and individual encoder degree pulses to the receiver.

The transmitter requires the same battery as the analyzer to operate. The battery supplies power
to the transmitter, encoder, and timing light. Expected life of the battery is one day of continuous
operation. The receiver is powered directly from the analyzer and requires very little additional
power to operate.

Note: The 6310 analyzers come equipped with an internal receiver. The 6300 analyzers
require an external receiver.

Copyright Windrock, Inc. 1997, 1998


Encoder Setup 50

Attach the antennas when ready to use by screwing them on hand tight. Insert a battery into the
transmitter, attach the 50-ft. encoder cable to the transmitter, and attach the short 4-ft. cable to the
6300 and receiver (if required).

Caution! Do not over-tighten. Damage may occur to the connector. The antenna does
not have to be tight to operate correctly.

The transmitter can be moved to obtain a strong signal as necessary. Note, some installations
may have significant structures that will impede the wireless connection. Try re-orienting the
transmitter and try again if this occurs.

12 Utilities
12.1 Printing
Printing
To print directly from the analyzer there must be a printer driver loaded prior to running the
software. Once this has been done pressing the PRINT function key will print out the current
graphics or report screen. The 6300 must be in LCD mode to print in proper black and white. You
cannot use the print function to print to a PostScript type printer.

Using the GRAPHICS command:

The GRAPHICS loads a program into upper memory that allows the 6300 to print the information
displayed on the screen. To load the GRAPHICS driver you may do it one of two ways using the
syntax that follows. The first method requires the word GRAPHICS be typed in at the command
prompt. The second method requires adding the GRAPHICS command to the autoexec.bat file in
the root directory of the 6300.

Syntax:

LOADHIGH GRAPHICS [type]

THERMAL An IBM PC-convertible Thermal Printer

THINKJET A Hewlett-Packard ThinkJet printer

Loading a different printer profile:

If you have already loaded a printer profile and you want to load another one by using the
GRAPHICS command, the new profile must be smaller than the one already loaded. If you try
to use only the GRAPHICS command to load a new profile that is larger than the currently
loaded profile, the following message is displayed: "Unable to reload with profile supplied"

To load a new profile that is larger than the one currently loaded, you must restart the 6300
and then use the GRAPHICS command to load the new profile.

12.2 Interlink
Interlink

INTERLNK

Connects two computers via the parallel port or the serial port and enables the computers to
transfer files between each other. You must first install the <INTERLNK.EXE> device driver before
you can use this command. In addition the 6300 must also have INTERSVR running to make the
connection complete (see INTERSVR below).

You must use the DEVICE command to install the <INTERLNK.EXE> device driver before you can
use the INTERLNK command. The 6300 is shipped with this already installed. The HOST
computer may or may not require it.

To install the INTERLNK.EXE device driver enter the following line into your CONFIG.SYS file on
the desktop (laptop) computer using the DOS edit command or a word processor in ascii text
format:

DEVICEHIGH=C:\DOS\INTERLNK.EXE

If you use INTERLNK to connect to a computer that is not running <INTERSVR>, INTERLNK will
show the connection as three additional floppy disk drives. However, if you try to show the contents
of these drives, they will appear empty. To show the contents of the redirected drives, the server
must be running INTERSVR. Note that under any version of Windows there will be a slowing of
the system while the non-accessible drives are searched.

When you connect two computers using INTERLNK, each additional drive will be assigned the
next available drive letter. Because the <LASTDRIVE> setting in your CONFIG.SYS file
determines how many drive letters are available, make sure LASTDRIVE is set high enough to
accommodate the redirected drives.

INTERSVR

Starts the Interlnk server on the 6300 instrument.

Copyright Windrock, Inc. 1997, 1998


53 6300 Operations Manual

Syntax

INTERSVR [/LPT:[n|address]] [/COM:[n|address]]


(e.g. INTERSVR /COM:1 would be the most common usage)

Parameter

Switches

/LPT:[n|address]
Specifies a parallel port to use. The n parameter specifies the number of the parallel port. The
address parameter specifies the address of the parallel port. If you omit n or address, the
Interlnk server uses the first parallel port that it finds connected to the client. If you specify the
/LPT switch and omit the /COM switch, the server searches only for parallel ports. By default,
all parallel and serial ports are scanned.

/COM:[n|address]
Specifies a serial port to use. The n parameter specifies the number of the serial port. The address
parameter specifies the address of the serial port. If you omit n or address, the Interlnk server
searches all serial ports and uses the first port that it finds connected to the client. If you
specify the /COM switch and omit the /LPT switch, the server searches only for serial ports. By
default, all parallel and serial ports are scanned.

INTERSVR Notes

Redirected devices

Interlnk does not redirect network drives, CD-ROM drives, or any other device that uses a
redirection interface.

Using a serial mouse with Microsoft Windows

If you are using a serial mouse with Microsoft Windows and you start the Interlnk server while
Windows is running, you need to specify either the /LPT switch or a /COM switch that designates a
COM port other than the one the mouse is using. For example, if the serial mouse uses COM1 and
you are using a parallel connection, specify the /LPT switch to prevent Interlnk from scanning all
COM ports.

Using Interlnk in a task-switching or multitasking environment

If you start the Interlnk server in a task-switching or multitasking environment, task switching and
key combinations that switch you out of your current task are disabled. To restore these functions,
quit the server.

The following commands do not work with the Interlnk server connection:

CHKDSK FORMAT
DEFRAG MIRROR
DISKCOMP SYS
DISKCOPY UNDELETE

12.3 Backup
Data Backup Procedure

On a periodic basis the analyzer should be backed up just like any other personal computer or
laptop computer. The data stored on the 6300 is your history of the machinery being analyzed
and should be treated with care.

There are several ways in which to backup the analyzer data files.

Interlnk: Interlink / Interserve are MS-DOS programs that create a link between two PC's via a
serial or parallel cable. Once the link has been established, the analyzer becomes a
remote drive to the host. This allows data to be transferred directly from the analyzer
to the host hard drive.

Laplink: A third party software program similar to Interlink where two PC's are connected
together via serial or parallel connections. Data can then be transferred between the
two devices.

Zip Drive: A device which can be directly connected to the parallel printer port of the analyzer.
This device requires a set of driver programs which must first be loaded on the
analyzer via the Interlnk method. Once this is done the Zip Drive acts as a large floppy
drive and data can be transferred to it.

Tape: A less common device similar to a Zip Drive.

With each of the above methods there is the need to know where and which data to transfer from
the analyzer. Below is a short description of the file layout within the analyzer unit itself.

C:\EVCODE This is the directory where the executable code is stored. These are the
programs that make the analyzer operate. On occasion Windrock will provide
a new set for you to upgrade your existing system. These files should be
copied to this directory.

C:\EVPORTIs the main directory where the data files are kept. Each station and machine are
put into sub..sub directories as shown below.

C: \EVPORT \S000
\S001 \M000

\M001

\M002

Where S000 is the first station in the list, M000 is the first machine for the
station. The easiest way to find which subdirectory belongs to a machine is to
select the station and machine of interest and then back up an exit to DOS.
The subdirectory displayed is the current machine. These would be the files
for that machine including setup & data.

C:\EVDATA This subdirectory contains the FFT analysis data. This would be data saved from
the timebase/FFT menu selection.

Note: The individual test point data from route based collection remains with
the machine files.

Copyright Windrock, Inc. 1997, 1998


55 6300 Operations Manual

To backup data simply connect up one of the devices listed above and copy over either the
one machine, the entire station, or the entire database. Don't forget the FFT analysis data in
this process.

To help in saving data in the smallest possible area PKZIP (see Appendix E for informatiopn
on this program) have been included on the 6300 for your use in zipping the data files.
PKUNZIP (see Appendix E for informatiopn on this program) has been included to unzip data
files and executable program files.

A typical example of zipping on machines set of data is as follows:


PKZIP -a m000.zip *.*

This would zip all the files in the subdirectory into one file named m000.zip. This file could then
be transferred via the Internet to Windrock or to your corporate headquaters for evaluation.

A typical example of zipping the entire database of all machines is as follows:

PKZIP -rP evbackup.zip c:\evport\*.*

This would zip all the files in the evport subdirectory and it's subdirectories into one file named
evbackup.zip. This file could then be transferred via the Internet to Windrock or to your
corporate headquaters for evaluation. It could also be transferred of to a ZIP Drive or other
long term storage device.

12.4 Loading New Software


DOS Install

Windows Install

12.4.1 Windows Install


Prior to starting, make sure the update has been installed on the desktop/laptop. There should be
two or more new files located in the Windrock\Win63xx\EXE folder that were part of the upgrade
CD ROM.

On the 6300/6310 analyzer:

1. Attach parallel interlink cable between desktop and 6300/6310


2. Turn the analyzer on
3. Select 7 "Utilities" from the menu and press Enter
4. Select 2 "Connect to windows" from the menu and press Enter

In the Win6300/Win6310 Windows application:

5. Before opening a database, select "Utilities" from the menu bar


6. Select "Connect to analyzer" from the menu
7. Press the "Connect now" button (the connection should be established - note this by a
box listing files on the analyzer appearing to the right of the window)
8. Select "Transfer" from the menu bar
9. Select "Update EXE's" on the menu

Transfer will now begin and may take several minutes to complete. Once the process has
completed, exit the function in Windrock\Win63xx and restart the 6300/6310. The new operating
software will be in place.

On desktop
type INTERLNK
The analyzer should show the drive letter assigned to drive C: (e.g. F:)

3. Copy the EXE.ZIP file to your PC from the floppy (you may also copy directly from the floppy,
substitute A: for C:), or move if from internet file source to C:\TEMP.

4. Once the link is established software files may be transferred to the analyzer with the following
command:

COPY C:\TEMP\EXE.ZIP F:\EVCODE

5. Remove the interlink session by hitting ALT-F4 on the analyzer.

6. The files need to be expanded by the following commands on the analyzer:

CD\EVCODE
PKUNZIP -O EXE.ZIP

7. Turn the analyzer off and then on to start the instrument up with new software in place.

13.1 CollTech
Data Collection Techniques
Temperature Measurement
Temperature measurement is critical in obtaining accurate analysis information. There are several
ways to obtain this type of reading.

Method 1: Gauge readings are typically available on most units. However, many gauges are not
very accurate and sometimes broken. Also, gauges are typically inserted into the gas
stream providing internal temperature. This placement provides for a more accurate
gas temperature vs. skin temperatures.

Method 2: Infrared temperature devices are very common in plants and one is supplied with the
6300 kit. A few things should be noted about these type devices. First, the response
varies with both paint thickness and color. For best accuracy use flat black paint on
the surface where reading the temperatures. Second, holding the probe in direct
contact can heat the probe tip providing for false readings as the sensor itself has
become heated. A good distance is approximately one inch from the surface. Third,
this type measurement is measuring the "skin" temperature. This may be somewhat
cooler or warmer than the actual gas temperature.

Note: Many of the compressor "calculated" parameters such as capacity are dependent on
accurate measurements of suction and discharge temperatures.

13.4 Specifications
Technical Specifications - Model 6300 Analyzer
Basic Capabilities:

The data acquisition capabilities of the instrument are based upon 4-channel simultaneous
dynamic signal capature as a function of crank angle position. The crank angle position is
capature via an optical shaft encoder coupled mechanically to the machine being analyzed, or
magnetic/optical pickup. The 4 simultaneous signal inputs can be a combination of pressures,
vibration, ultransonic, or other voltage or current signals. A fifth channel is dedicated for
capture of high-speed primary and secondary ignition system. Two channel simultaneous
vibration spectral analysis for auxilary rotating machines is supported. Angular velocity
measurements are captured and displayed using the encoder information.
