Design and Mode of Operation

2 Design and Mode of Operation

The following chapter describes the mechanical and electrical design as well
as the recorder components.

2.1 Summary

The recorders are designed as panel mounted instruments with a format


144 mm x 144 mm.
Installation without interspacing is possible in panels and mosaic systems with
sufficient ventilation.
The modern recorders have digital data processing. Measured values are
recorded serially in channels and with solid state technology.
As a result of the exclusive use of step motors, the drive system for recording
operates completely without contacts. This technology permits a wide range of
applications and high functional reliability.

Fig. 2.1-1 and Fig. 2.1-2 show views of the recorder. The mode of operation of
the recorders is explained down to the block chart level using Fig. 2.2-1.

Design and Mode of Operation

2.2 Recorder Components

2.2.1 Housing

The housing is made of sheet-steel. The chassis and the chart carriage are
present at the front, the measuring module, the central processing unit, parts of
the power supply and the options are located at the rear. The housing is
mounted in the panel, mosaic system or desk upright panel using the supplied,
standardized mounting elements.

2.2.2 Measured-value Acquisition

Measured-value acquisition consists of a multiplexer with semiconductor


relays and an analog-to-digital converter. The input ranges are set specifically
for each channel using jumpers. The channels are electrically isolated from
one another by staggered control of the semiconductor relays.
Control is handled by the central processing unit. All channels to be measured
during a cycle are connected to the input amplifier in succession via the
individual semiconductor relays. The amplified signal is applied to an analog-
to-digital converter which operates according to the dual-slope procedure.
In order to permit equally accurate measurements in sensitive ranges,
reference measurements are carried out cyclically in the recorder version with
universal measuring ranges. A cyclic check is also carried out for open-
circuits.
The terminal block also contains a sensor for measuring the terminal
temperature when carrying out temperature measurements using
thermocouples.

2.2.3 Central Processing Unit

The central processing unit is the heart of the electronics. It contains a


microprocessor as well as the program memory (EPROM), main memory
(RAM) and non-volatile memory (EEPROM) for configuration data.
Central component of the processing section is a microprocessor system with
firmware. This is used, inter alia, for:
T
T
Sequence control

T
Calculation of measured values

T
Positioning of pen assemblies

T
Evaluation of input commands
Use of PC interface.
The central processing unit permits control of the module "Digital
input/output" and the PC interface.

Siemens AG Order No.: C79000-G7376-C188-04


2-4 SIREC P, PA, L, LA Manual
Design and Mode of Operation

A crystal-controlled calendar/clock with external synchronization facility


provides the date and time as a reference for sets of measured values and the
chart.
The central processing unit is located at the rear of the housing and is
accessible from the front following removal of the chassis. It contains the
plugs for connection of the other modules.

2.2.4 Power Supply

The recorders have different designs on the input side as a result of the four
different power supplies which can be ordered.
AC 230 V or The mains power supply is connected to the recorder via an appliance plug
AC 115 V with subsequent fuses, filter and transformer. The stepped down AC voltage is
rectified, filtered and applied to DC/DC converters which generate the
required internal DC voltages.

Note
The recorder must only be connected to the envisaged power supply. Observe
the corresponding note on the rear of the recorder.

DC 24 V The DC 24 V supply connected via the terminals is applied via a fuse to a


power inverter whose output is connected to a transformer. The secondary side
of the transformer is connected as in the recorder version with a mains power
supply.

AC 24 V The AC 24 V supply connected via the terminals is applied via a fuse to the
primary side of the transformer. The secondary side is connected as in the
recorder version with a mains power supply.

2.2.5 Chassis

The chassis contains the chassis support, control PCB, recording system, user
interface, PC interface and chart carriage. The chassis is connected to the
central processing unit via a multi-conductor ribbon cable with plug. The cable
length is such that the chassis can be completely removed from the housing
without loosening the connection.

Chassis support This is the support for the motors of the recording system, the control PCB,
user interface and PC interface. The chart carriage latches into the chassis
support and can be removed at any time using lever 2, e.g. to replace the chart.

Siemens AG Order No.: C79000-G7376-C188-04


SIREC P, PA, L, LA Manual 2-5
Design and Mode of Operation

Control "PCB" The control PCB contains the power electronics for the step motors of the
drives as well as the light barrier for detection of the carriage zero points. It
also contains a microswitch for recognizing the end of the chart paper, and
several microswitches which are activated using the levers.

Clock backup Only versions with alphanumeric text: the clock backup consists of a backup
battery and capacitor. If a battery is not present, or if the chassis is separated
from the central processing unit, the capacitor buffers the internal clock for
approx. 5 minutes. The status of the clock buffer is checked when the power
supply is switched on.

The support for the backup battery is present on the control PCB and
accessible following removal of the chassis.

Recording system The recording system consists of up to seven step motors depending on the
recorder version. These are used for:
T

LA version: positioning of pen for text channel in x- and y-directions
Chart carriage The chart carriage permits fanfold packs or rolls to be used as the chart paper.
A take-up spool is required when using rolls (included in delivery). In
addition, the chart carriage must be adapted when changing from fanfold paper
to rolls. The required operations are described in Section 6 "Servicing and
Maintenance".

User interface The user interface consists of four levers and two LEDs underneath the chart
carriage. A further lever is present on the side of the chassis and is only visible
when the chassis is in maintenance position.
Mechanical operations are directly activated by two of the four levers
underneath the chart carriage. The other two levers can be used for two
different actions each by moving the respective lever to the left or right. The
TEST menu can activated and switched off again using the switch which is
accessible on the side of the chassis.
Green and red LEDs indicate different recorder statuses depending on how
they are activated (on, off, flashing).

PC interface The recorders are equipped with a PC interface. A laptop or PC can be


connected via a special adapter cable. Convenient parameterization of the
recorder is possible via the PC interface using a Windows desktop (SIPROM
R). In addition, measured values, alarm statuses, date/time and chart feed A or
B can also be scanned.

2.3 Mode of Operation

As a result of the many different possible uses, the recorders are delivered
preset to the basic setting of 4 to 20 mA.
Customer-specific presetting is also possible as required. The recorder can
then be used immediately following installation and commissioning. It is
additionally possible to easily change the parameter settings of the recorder via
the user or PC interface, thus permitting optimum and subsequent adaptation
to the monitored process.
The values measured cyclically by the recorder are amplified, digitized and
processed further by a microprocessor system.
In addition to processing of the measured values, the microprocessor system is
responsible for sequence control, self-test, event processing, communication
via the PC interface, control of the step motors of the recording system,
feedbacks from the recording system and the user interface.
The microprocessor system converts the measured value into positioning
commands for the recording system. The recording system draw a continuous
line on the chart paper. You can adjust the measuring and recording ranges
such that the signal is recorded with an optimum resolution and display. It is
also possible to define limits which are constantly recorded in the LA version
as vertical lines. The recorders with alphanumeric text can output an alarm text
if the limit is violated. The number of limits and the alarm function can be
parameterized within wide ranges. If the recorder is equipped with the digital
input/output option, the alarms can be output for further processing.
Recorders with alphanumeric text can output a measured-value table, event
text and recorder text cyclically or event-controlled. The texts must be entered
previously via the user or PC interface when setting up the recorder. The
outputs are made depending on the recorder parameters.

reasons (differences in potential), this arrangement is only meaningful for
transmitters which are close together. When additionally using the digital
input/output, observe whether switching transients occur, and their effect.

The following chapter describes how to operate the recorders.

Note
Replacing the chart and the battery for backing up the clock are described in
Section 6.

You are guided by menus when operating the recorders. The menus provide
information in the form of a table on the respective functions or values for an
input (leaflet "Parameterization – a concise overview").
The input menus consist of several elements which are comprised in turn of
menu code numbers and designations.
In the first input step (selection of row) you decide which function or
parameter is to be called. The red LED lights up.
In the second step (selection of column) you can define or modify the
corresponding setting of the recorder. The red LED flashes.
The input of a menu code number is terminated by ENTER.
You can scroll through the menu using the INC/DEC functions.

4.1 Display and Control Elements

Operation is carried out using four horizontal levers located below the chart
carriage (Fig. 4.1-1). A further lever is present on the side of the chassis. Two
colored LEDs which are also located below the chart carriage serve to support
you when setting up the recorders and for the output of status messages. In
recorders with alphanumeric text, status messages are additionally printed on
the chart paper by means of the text channel (LA version) or the recording
head (PA version) (Section 5).
The PC interface, which is designed as a flat plug, is located between the
service lever and lever 1. It is possible to connect a laptop to this plug in order
to carry out PC-controlled parameterization.

4.3 Levers

The levers have different effects. The black service lever and lever 2 act
directly on the mechanics. The other levers act on microswitches whose
signals are processed by the central processing unit. The levers are used for
recording, START, STOP or PAUSE OFF, PAUSE ON, high chart speed and
recorder settings via the PROG and TEST menus.
Feedbacks for the user when setting up the recorders are via the LEDs and the
positions of the pens/recording head. The rows and columns of the PROG and
TEST menus designed in tabular form directly correspond to the value of the
parameterization scale, i.e. a scale value of 15 % corresponds to row 15 or
column 15 depending on the status of the red LED.
The levers are assigned different functions during operation, PAUSE and
when setting up the recorder. Fig. 4.3-1 shows a summary of the lever
functions. These functions are described in detail in the following sections.

Operation

Details on L/LA version:


selection of Switching over commences with a marker in the form of small horizontal lines
chart feed on the curves and a fast feed of at least 7 mm such that a setting on the main
time lines – if set – is retained. Small horizontal lines are then again drawn on
the curves, and the recording commences with the new chart feed. At the same
time, the text channel of the LA version starts to write a chart switching line.

Note
If the chart feed is switched over too frequently in succession, the recording
system would be overloaded and the measured values lost. Therefore the
recorder switches over again at the earliest after approx. 30 s.

P/PA version:
The continuous recording is interrupted, and the subsequent measured values
are buffered. If switching over is triggered by an alarm, a line is initially
written with the alarm text, a chart feed is then carried out, and a chart
switching line is written. The buffered values are then traced with the new
chart speed. The relationship to the main time line is not lost by the chart feed.

The following example clarifies the mode of operation of chart feeds A and B
with condition.

Example Chart feed A is set to 20 mm/h [P0.30]. The condition is present at "Input DI2"
[P5.70].
Chart feed B is set to 120 mm/h [P10.40]. The condition is at "/Input DI2"
[P15.75].
Result:
The chart feed is 20 mm/h in measuring mode if the signal at input DI2 is
"High". The chart feed is switched over to 120 mm/h if the signal changes to
"Low". This status is retained until DI2 changes to "High" again. The chart
feed then returns to 20 mm/h.

4.5.2 Measured-value Table (only recorders with alphanumeric text)

P[20] Measured- The recorder prints a measured-value table (Fig. 5.2-1 "Example recording for

SIREC P, PA, L, LA Manual 4-17
Operation

Printing the L/LA version:


measured-value The graphic recording is not interrupted when printing the measured-value
table table, i.e. the 2nd and 3rd lines are only printed if the chart feed has reached a
full line height since the last line. If a further trigger function for a measured-
value table or an event text arrives whilst a table is being printed, this is only
commenced when the table has been completely printed and the chart feed has
reached a full line height since the last line.
P/PA version:
Printing of the measured-value table interrupts the continuous trace (the
measured values are buffered, and printed later).
A trigger condition only leads to printing of the measured-value table if a table
is not already in the buffer or being currently printed out when the trigger
condition occurs.
The printout of the measured-value table always coincides with a time mark if
it is carried out cyclically. The first line of the measured-value table is omitted
in this case. The minimum distance between two cyclic printouts is 10 mm.
The measured values at the printed time are stored in intermediate memory
before being output. Only those channels are printed out for which
"Measuring" or "Recording" has been selected.

P[65] Damping The damping is determined by the time constant of a 1st order low-pass via
which the signal connected to the input terminals of the recorder is filtered.
The output signal of the low-pass is an exponential function following a jump
in the signal at the input. The time constant defines how long it takes until the
output signal has attained 63.2 % of the stationary final value. Set 0 s for
output of unfiltered measured values.

The damping must be set individually for each channel. With the setting
"auto", the damping is automatically adapted to the chart feed. The basic
setting is 0 s. The following Figure shows the parameterizable time constants.

4.5.4 Parameterizing the Digital Channel (only LA version)

P[70] Channel The recorder has two digital channels in addition to the three (LA version) or 6
(digital) (P/PA version) analog channels. An alarm (Section 4.5.5) or a digital input
(Section 4.7) can be selected as the source. The binary signals of the digital
inputs are displayed as a square-wave signal at defined chart positions (Table
4.5-4):

Table 4.5-4 Chart positions of channels (digital)


Channel #1d Channel #2d
Logical 0 ("Low") 81 % 91 %
Logical 1 ("High") 89 % 99 %

The digital channels are recorded in the LA version by the mechanical system
of the text channel. Edges from logical 0 to 1 and logical 1 to 0 as well as
peaks are recorded as continuous lines. Constant signal sequences are recorded
as dashed lines.
Fig. 4.5-13 shows the possible parameters.

4.5.5 Alarm

The recorder permits the programming of up to six alarms, each of which is


assigned to a fixed output of the digital input/output (option) (Table 3.7-2).
T
T
DO1 Alarm A1

T
DO2 Alarm A2

T
DO3 Alarm A3

T
DO4 Alarm A4

T
DO5 Alarm A5
DO6 Alarm A6

A set alarm becomes active in "Measuring" or "Recording" mode if the set


limit is violated.
The assignments of the alarms to the individual channels, mode and alarm
value are freely selectable. The settings always commence with selection of an
alarm.

 See Section 4.7.5 for setting example.

P[80] Alarm The parameter "Alarm" is used to select one of the available alarms A1 to A6
to which the mode, channel and value apply in a subsequent setting.

P[85] Mode The parameter "Mode" can be used to define whether the alarm is to be
triggered when "MIN" is fallen below or "MAX" exceeded.
With the LA version, limit lines can be drawn parallel to the time axis. These
lines are vertical and approx. 1 mm long. The spacing between the individual
lines is reduced by half if the limit is violated. The lines are drawn by the
mechanical system of the text channel. The alarm symbol, the associated alarm
number, the channel number or the Σ character (with the setting "All channels"
are written cyclically next to the limit lines. The limit line can be set for each
alarm using the parameter "MIN with line" or "MAX with line".
No limit lines can be drawn with the P/PA version.
In the setting "Status" (only available in recorders with option "Digital
input/output"), recorder readiness is signalled if all of the following conditions
are fulfilled:
T
T
Power supply present

T
PROG menu not switched on

T
TEST menu not switched on

T
Recording started

T
Chart paper present
Last adjustment of recording system fault-free.

Use of the status message is particularly meaningful if the recorder cannot be


directly viewed.
L/LA version:
A control signal is output in the position "Time mark" (only available in
recorders with option "Digital input/output") at the start of the zero
adjustment. This signal can be used to synchronize the cyclic zero adjustment
of several recorders using this one as the master.

Siemens AG Order No.: C79000-G7376-C188-04


SIREC P, PA, L, LA Manual 4-31
Operation

An alarm is not output in the position "OFF". All alarms are switched off in
the basic setting.

P[90] Channel The 6 alarms can be freely assigned to the individual analog channels. The
basic setting is as follows:

T
Line recorders:

T
Alarms A1 and A2 to channel 1

T
Alarms A3 and A4 to channel 2
Alarms A5 and A6 to channel 3

T
Multipoint recorders:

T
Alarm A1 to channel 1

T
Alarm A2 to channel 2

T
Alarm A3 to channel 3

T
Alarm A4 to channel 4

T
Alarm A5 to channel 5
Alarm A6 to channel 6

A further possibility is the assignment of a common alarm to the channels in


the setting "All channels" and applies to the channels for which "Measuring"
or "Recording" mode has been selected. The alarm is triggered if the value is
exceeded (MAX) or fallen below (MIN) for at least one of the channels.

P[95] Value The setting "Alarm, Value" is used to define the percentage with respect to the
recording range at which the alarm to be triggered. The selectable range of
values is identical to the recording range and can be set in steps approx. 0.1 %.

Example:
Recording range: Left value = 80 °C
Right value = 180 °C
Alarm value = 40 % (min)

=> The alarm value is triggered by a temperature below 120 °C.

Measuring and Recording Mode

5 Measuring and Recording Mode

In measuring and recording mode, the measured values are displayed on the
scales and recorded on the chart as an amplitude/time chart. The parameters
such as the chart speed are set in the PROG and TEST menus (Section 4).
Measuring mode can be switched on and off in the TEST menu. Measuring
mode is interrupted if you call the PROG or TEST menu.
In measuring and recording mode, all channels for which measured-value
acquisition is switched on are scanned cyclically, processed and documented
on the chart paper by means of the recording system. Measured values are
linearized if applicable and corrected using auxiliary values such as the
terminal temperature and line resistance. Alarms are generated by comparing
the measured values with the programmed limits.
Buffer time The measured values pass through a buffer before they are recorded. This
prevents values from being lost if there is an interruption in the recording
procedure such as when changing the chart or pen. The measured values are
increasingly compressed as the buffer becomes fuller in that min./max. values
are generated.
The capacity of the buffer corresponds to approx. 10 mm of chart. A chart feed
is carried out if the buffer capacity is exceeded, and the symbol for a buffer
overflow "=><=" is printed out together with a chart switching line.

5.1 Chart Formatting (only recorders with alphanumeric


text)

You should preferably select the recording range (left value and right value)
such that round values result on the measured-value lines. This facilitates
evaluation of the chart and the determination of the absolute values of a curve.
Programming of the left and right values is described in Section 4.5.3.

SIREC P, PA, L, LA Manual 5-1
Measuring and Recording Mode

5.1.1 Main Time Line (only recorders with alphanumeric text)

With a correctly set recorder, the time marks are written on the main time
lines. The chart position can be adjusted in the PAUSE status such that the
time marks coincide with the main time lines with a subsequent recording.
After writing the start line (Section 5.1.6), the chart is shifted forwards such
that the time marks are written on the time lines in the future. The chart now
remains adjusted until the recording is interrupted by one of the following
events:
T
T
Parameterize text

T
Print configuration data

T
Removal of chart carriage
Power supply on/off.
The exact operations for setting the main time line are explained in Section 6.

5.1.2 Main Time Line (recorders without alphanumeric text)

Set the recorder to the PAUSE status using lever 1 and note the current time.
Use lever 3 to move the chart forwards until the fictitious time on the chart
with time grid is positioned underneath the three knobs of the scale (Fig. 6.3-
1). Subsequently leave the PAUSE status again using lever 1.
Example:
- Chart speed: 60 mm/h
- Current time on setting to PAUSE status: 11:55 a.m.
The interval between two main chart lines is 10 minutes at this chart speed.
Thus the chart must be set such that the knobs of the scale are positioned
exactly between two main time lines.

Note
The period in the PAUSE status should be kept short so that the buffer time
(approx. 10 mm chart length) is not exceeded.

5.1.3 Device Text (only recorders with alphanumeric text)

An device text is output:


T
T
As part of the switch-on text

T Î
With time marks at 12:00 and 00:00 hours
When recording is stopped (lever 1 , PAUSE ON)
The device text consists of up to 20 characters and can be freely programmed
by the user (Section 4). An device text may be e.g. the plant-specific name of
the recorder.

Measuring and Recording Mode

5.1.4 Switch-on Text (only recorders with alphanumeric text)

The switch-on text line consists of the date, time and device text. The line is
printed when the power supply is switched on if measuring mode is not
switched on. The device text consists of up to 20 characters and can be freely
programmed by the user (Section 4).

5.1.5 Event Text (only recorders with alphanumeric text)

An event text Fig. 5.2-1 "Example recording for LA version") can be printed
out cyclically or dependent on events. Up to six event texts can be
programmed with up to 20 characters each (LA) or 16 characters each (PA)
(Section 4) and assigned to the alarms. Possible trigger conditions are:
T
T
Cyclic

T
Alarms A1 ... A6 (if the alarm becomes active)
Input DI1 ... DI4 (only with change in level from Low to High)
The graphic recording is not interrupted when printing the event text. With the
LA version, a further event text or a measured-value table is only printed if the
chart feed has reached a full line height since the last text. This prevents
overwriting.
Event texts which are printed out cyclically consist only of the event text.
Event texts which are controlled by a digital input are only printed out with a
change in level from Low to High. They consist of the time exact down to
seconds, and the device text. Event texts which are controlled by an activated
alarm consist of the time, alarm symbol, channel number assigned to the
alarm, and event text. If the alarm is deactivated, the "Alarm line" is written as
with an activated alarm, but without an event text. If the alarm is assigned to
all channels, the total character "Σ" appears instead of the channel number.
The cyclic output of the event texts depends on the set chart feed.
Table 5.1-1 Output cycle for event text

5.1.6 Start Line (only recorders with alphanumeric text)

The start line (Fig. 5.2-1 "Example recording for LA version") appears each
time measuring mode and the graphic recording have been interrupted and
restarted. The line consists of the word "START", date, time, chart feed and
set measuring cycle.

5.1.7 Time Marks (only recorders with alphanumeric text)

A time printout (Fig. 5.2-1 "Example recording for LA version") is made


cyclically at the left edge of the chart depending on the chart feed. A
horizontal marking line is printed as the first character followed by the date
and time in hours and minutes. The date is printed with the first time printout
after 12:00 and 00:00 hours. Either the 24-hour clock or the 12-hour clock can
be used for the time printout.
The intervals between the time marks depend on the set chart feed and are
listed in the following table:

5.1.8 Limit Line (only LA version)

Limit lines (Fig. 5.2-1 "Example recording for LA version") can be drawn
parallel to the time axis. The lines are vertical and approx. 2 mm long. The
spaces of the dashed line are halved when an alarm occurs. The limit lines are
written by the text channel.
Section 4 describes the parameterization of these functions (MIN. or MAX.
with line).
The associated alarm status changes when the measured curve cuts the limit
line. The symbol, alarm number, channel number or Σ are written cyclically
next to the limit line.
Note that there is a time offset between the measured curves and the
inscription of the limit line.

5.1.9 Alarm Markers (only P/PA version)

A limit line is not written with the P/PA version. Instead of this, an alarm
marker is written at the "Limit position" if the alarm status has changed. This
comprises an underline character, an alarm symbol and the alarm number
(1...6). In the case of alarms assigned to one single channel, the alarm markers
are written in the channel color, for common alarms they are written in violet.

Measuring and Recording Mode

5.1.10 Measured-value Table (only recorders with alphanumeric text)

A measured-value table (Fig. 5.2-1 "Example recording for LA version") can


be printed out cyclically or event-controlled. Only measured values are printed
for channels for which the mode "Measure" or "Record" has been selected.
Possible trigger conditions:
T
T
Cyclically every 1, 2, 3, 4, 12 hours

T
Alarms A1 to A6
Inputs DI1 to DI4

LA version:
The graphic recording is not interrupted when printing the measured-value
table, i.e. the 2nd and 3rd lines are only printed if the chart feed has reached a
full line height since the last line. If a further trigger function for a measured-
value table or an event text arrives whilst a table is being printed, this is only
commenced when the table has been completely printed and the chart feed has
reached a full line height since the last line.
P/PA version:
The continuous recording is interrupted, and the subsequent measured values
are buffered. If switching over is triggered by an alarm, a line is initially
written with the alarm text, a chart feed is then carried out, and a chart
switching line is written. The buffered values are then traced with the new
chart speed. The relationship to the main time line is not lost by the chart feed.
The printout of the measured-value table always coincides with a time mark if
it is carried out cyclically. The first line of the measured-value table is omitted
in this case (reading direction: from bottom to top).
The information of an analog channel comprises (from left to right):
T
T
Channel number, e.g. #3

T
Measured value with sign

T
Dimension of parameterized measuring range

T
Symbol for open-circuit if applicable
Symbols of alarms assigned to the channel

The information of a digital channel comprises (from left to right):


T
T
Channel number with code letter "#d" for digital

5.1.11 Grid (only recorders with alphanumeric text)

The text channel (LA version) or channel #3 (black, PA version) can be used
to print a grid on (preferably) unprinted paper. The interval between the grids
depends on the chart feed (see Table 5.1-3). The grids are synchronized with
the time marks and independent of the starting time for recording.
Table 5.1-3 Chart grid
Setting Remarks
OFF Standard setting
Division 1 + 1 +
Division 2 + 1 + 2 +

See fig. 5.2-1
Division 6 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 +
Division 7 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 +

LA version:
The grid crosses at 20, 40, 60 and 80 % are omitted if
T
T
a recorder text is written at 12 a.m. and 12 p.m., and

T
a measured-value table is printed and
an event text is printed.

At a high chart feed, the markers are no longer on a time line, they are written
oblique.
With a chart feed from 300 to 1200 mm/h, only the 0 % and 100 % markers
are written.

5.1.12 Priorities of Text Outputs

The printing of texts is triggered cyclically or event-controlled. The texts are


printed in chronological order. If several texts are waiting to be printed, the
print messages are buffered and the printout of the next text line delayed so
that the texts are not printed over one another.
A congestion of printer messages may occur if a large number of texts occurs
within a short time or large time intervals exist between the text lines because
of a slow chart feed. The recorder carries out the following measures in order
to avoid a buffer overflow in the event of congestion:

5-6 Siemens AG Order No.: C79000-G7376-C188-04


SIREC P, PA, L, LA Manual
Measuring and Recording Mode

T If the buffer for print messages is close to overflowing, the printing of


texts is not delayed until they do not overwrite one another.
T Texts which are triggered cyclically and which only contain redundant
information are delayed, or omitted if texts with a higher priority are
present during a complete cycle.
T Texts are printed out in abbreviated form.

The texts are always abbreviated if the printing of a further text with a higher
priority is also present. The following priority list applies:

LA version:

High priority Switch-on line


START line
Chart switching line
Edge of digital channel
Grid
Time mark
Event-controlled measured-value table
Event-controlled event text

Event-controlled time mark and carriage adjustment


Cyclic measured-value table
Cyclic event text
Cyclic carriage adjustment
Cyclic limit lines
Low priority Cyclic digital channel lines

Time marks and edges of digital channels are exceptions for two reasons:
T They are printed without being delayed, i.e. they can be printed over
other texts.

T If a time mark or a digital channel edge occurs whilst printing a text, the
text is only interrupted and not aborted.

PA version:
Event text: high priority
Cyclic texts: low priority

5.1.13 Configuration Data (only recorders with alphanumeric text)

The set configuration data can be printed if required. Printing is triggered


using the PROG menu [100,10] .

6.3 Setting the Main Time Line

The position of the chart can be adjusted when in the PAUSE status so that the
time marks coincide with the main time lines during the subsequent graphic
recording.
Recorders with alphanumeric text:
Step Measure

Î
1 Open door
2 Lever 1 PAUSE ON (stop recording). The carriage moves to the

Î
maintenance position (e.g. L/LA version, see Fig. 6.8-2).
3 Lever 3 activate chart high-speed until a time line is positioned
underneath the knobs which are present on the rear of the

Í
adjustment scale (Fig. 6.3-1).
4 Lever 1 PAUSE OFF (start recording).

Recorders without alphanumeric text:


Set the recorder to the PAUSE status using lever 1 and note the current time.
Use lever 3 to move the chart forwards until the fictitious time on the chart
with time grid is positioned underneath the three knobs of the scale (Fig. 6.3-
1). Subsequently leave the PAUSE status again using lever 1.
Example:
- Chart speed: 60 mm/h
- Current time on setting to PAUSE status: 11:55 a.m.
The interval between two main chart lines is 10 minutes at this chart speed.
Thus the chart must be set such that the knobs of the scale are positioned
exactly between two main time lines.

Note
The period in the PAUSE status should be kept short so that the buffer time
(approx. 10 mm chart length) is not exceeded.

The above settings are always required:


R Following parameterization of text
R Following printing of the configuration data
R If the chart carriage has been removed from the chassis, e.g. in order to
replace the chart
R When the recorder has been switched on/off.

6.22 Adjustment, Test Prints, Carriage/Text Positions

6.22.1 Adjustment

T[80] Adjustment: When adjusting the measuring ranges, a reference value is determined for the
Range individual ranges of the input amplifier using external signals and stored in a
non-volatile data memory.
T[85] Channel

Note
The measuring ranges have been adjusted by the manufacturer prior to
delivery. A new adjustment, should this be necessary, must only be carried out
using suitable calibrators.

You require a signal generator or resistance transmitter in order to carry out an


adjustment. Connect the source to the signal input terminals. The error of the
signal generator or resistance transmitter is included as an additional error in
the result of the recorder.
Except for 20 mA and 10 V, the measuring ranges can be adjusted using any
channel. Therefore connect the signal generator or resistance transmitter to the
input terminals of the associated channel or to all input terminals. Connect the
jumpers as in Fig. 3.6-2.
If the recorder is only used in the range setting you have selected, adjustment
of the unused ranges is unnecessary.
The setting "Adjustment" and its subsequent settings support adjustment of the
measuring ranges. The adjustment is carried out by setting the measuring
range and the channel assignment. If an adjustment is required for each
channel, this can be carried out for the individual channels or for all channels
together. The field "Adjust" is subsequently set, and the set measuring range is
automatically adjusted (Fig. 6.22-1).

6.22.4 Maintenance

T[95] Maintenance Line recorders


Six settings are available for maintenance purposes. The recording systems can
be set to the 0 % and 100 % lines using "Carriage position 1" to "Carriage
position 4". The settings "Carriage position 1" to "Carriage position 4" can be
used e.g. to adapt the recording system to the chart which may change as a
result of climatic influences. The setting is limited. You should inform the
servicing department if the 0 % or 100 % line cannot be reached using the
maintenance facilities.
The setting "Text position" is used to change the space between the pens of the
analog channels and the pen of the text channel (only LA version) (see
example on next page). The setting procedure for the recording systems is
terminated by "End". The possible settings are shown in Fig. 6.22-3.

Multipoint recorders
One setting "Maintenance position 1" is available for maintenance purposes. It
can be used to adapt the recording system to the chart which may change as a
result of climatic influences. The setting is limited. You should inform the
servicing department if the 0 % or 100 % line cannot be reached using the
maintenance facilities.

7.13 Explanation of Error Data

The total error to be expected results from several types of error which in turn
depend on different influencing variables, the measuring mode, the recorder
programming and the recorder design. The recorders correspond to class 0.5 to
DIN 43782 or IEC 484. The class accuracy of 0.5 does not mean that the error
is always within 0.5 % of the full-scale value or the span under all operating
conditions. It means that the error does not exceed 0.5 % of the reference
value under reference conditions.
The maximum range expansion permissible only results from the accuracy
required for a specific task. There are no recorder limitations for the range
expansion.
The maximum total error to be expected results from the total of the individual
errors. The actual error will generally be much smaller and typically approx.
1/3 of the maximum total error since it can be assumed that not all influencing
variables will have their most unfavourable values, and that some of the
influences will mutually cancel one another.
The error data refer to the chart. A requirement is correct adjustment of the
carriage position in the TEST menu.

Maximum absolute total error: F = Fel + Fmech


Fel See table of measured values
Fmech = 0.35 % • Left value - Right value
Example 1
Recorder design: Measuring ranges of standard design
(line recorders)
Measuring range: +4 mA to +20 mA
Left value: +4 mA
Right value: +20 mA
Actual measured value: 15 mA
Ambient temperature: +28 °C (increase by 3 degrees compared to
reference value)
Fel = 12 µA + 0.05 % • 15 mA +
(0.03 % x 15 mA + 0.5 µA) x3
= 34.5 µA

Fmech = 0.35 % • 16 mA = 56 µA
Maximum absolute
total error: F = 34.5 µA + 56 µA = 90.5 µA
Example 2
Recorder design: Measuring ranges of universal design
(line recorders)
Measuring range: TC
Sensor: Thermocouple type J
Connection: Internal
Left value: +700 °C
Right value: +1050 °C
Actual measured value: +750 °C
Ambient temperature: +18 °C (reduction by 3 degrees compared to
reference value)
Fel = 0.6 °C + 0.06 % • 750 °C +
0.02 % • 750 °C • 3 + 0.6 °C
= 2.1 °C

Fmech = 0.35 % • 350°C = 1.2 °C


Maximum absolute
total error: F = 2.1 °C + 1.2 °C = 3.3°C
