Introduction

1 Introduction
This manual describes the spot temperature option of the optional HCU and ICU_HPI board and the analog level
output of the optional HCU board and ICU_HPO board.
The HCU board is an option board for the Honeywell Enraf 854 servo level gauges and 877 Field Display &
Interface. The ICU_HPI board is an option board for the Honeywell Enraf 97x SmartRadar level gauges.

Instrument Option board Function


854 servo HCU Spot temperature and/or Analog level output
877 FDI HCU Spot temperature and/or Analog level output
ICU_HPI Spot temperature
97x SmartRadar
ICU_HPO Analog level output

In this manual the commissioning settings for the two functions are described in the following chapters:
 Spot temperature measurement: chapter 2
 Analog level output: chapter 3

The optional HCU and ICU_HPI boards also interface VITO probes and other HART devices. For a description
of those functions, refer to the Instruction manual VITO interface and average temperature (and water) probes
and Instruction manual HIMS / Vapour pressure (P3).

The ICU_HPO board is an optional board for the 97x SmartRadar, providing an analog level output with HART
communications. This manual only describes the analog output. For the HART communications, refer to
Instruction manual 97x SmartRadar HART output communication.

Spot temperature measurement

2 Spot temperature measurement

2.1 Introduction

A standard Pt100 spot element (RTD) can be measured and its temperature is interpreted by the HCU and
ICU_HPI board as product temperature.
As from HCU/HPI software version A2.1 and higher, also Ni191 elements (TriTemp / MidTemp) can be
measured.

The temperature measurement is intrinsically safe, certified EEx ia IIB.

Principle of operation
The temperature measurement is based on a 3-wire RTD configuration. Only the ICU_HPI board has the option
for a 4-wire RTD configuration.

The resistance measurement for 3-wire configuration is performed in the following steps:

 The spot element is measured, including the cable resistance


 The cable resistance is measured separately, and subtracted from the element resistance to avoid
influence of the cabling on the temperature measurement
 Next, the system constant is determined. This is done by measuring an accurate reference resistance
(Rref) 0.01% + 2 ppm/C (-40 - 85C)
 In order to check the Rref, a test resistor (Rtest) is measured. This resistor has the same accuracy as the
reference resistor

These four measurements are performed with and without current to compensate for any thermo or offset
voltage in the measuring circuit.

The temperature data is displayed (when a display is present) as product temperature and transmitted to the
host.

Instruction manual Spot temperature and Analog output options Page 6


Spot temperature measurement

2.2 Commissioning of spot temperature measurement

The commissioning of the optional spot temperature part of the HCU or ICU_HPI board should be performed
after the basic commissioning of the level gauge or indicator.

2.2.1 Spot temperature settings

Item Name Description

W2= Protection level 2 Enter protection level 2.

TD= Temperature dimension One character; either ‘C’ or ‘F’. Default set to C.
C : degrees Celsius
F : degrees Fahrenheit
Both dimensions have the same format.

MT= Temperature element type Three characters (default: TPL)


Valid settings for spot temperature measurement are:
SPL : Pt100 RTD large range (-200  +250 C)
SNI : Ni191 TriTemp / MidTemp ( -20  +120 C)
This selection is possible from HCU/HPI software version A2.1 and
higher. With previous software versions only Pt100 spot elements
could be measured and hence, no selection required. Due to the
default value (TPL), at first a temperature error message appears.
The temperature error is cancelled after item MT is set correctly.

MN= Element configuration Two digits (default: 16)


03 : for 3 wire RTD configuration or
04 : for 4 wire RTD configuration (ICU_HPI board only).
Note:
If a 4 wire RTD configuration is used, strap ST4 on the ICU_HPI
board must be placed to the correct position (refer to fig. 2.1).

MO= RTD position Format according to item LD.


MO represents height of the RTD element with respect to the zero
point of the level gauge. If the measured level drops below this
height the following two actions takes place:
1) The corresponding status bit (bit 3) is set in status byte 1
of item AP (temperature request);
2) The temperature status on the instrument display (if applicable)
is set to ‘LR’.

MI= Switch hysteresis Format according to item LD. Default: +000.1000 (m).
Item MI is a switch hysteresis around the RTD position item MO.

TU= Temperature status conversion One character; default ‘T’. This character is transmitted in the
temperature status byte to the host in case of:
- level below RTD position (item MO)
- invalid level reading
If required, this item can be set to another character.

EX Exit Exit protection level.

transmission*) selected if the 877 FDI shall answer on a temperature request
(C-record), addressed to the connected level gauge.
E : transmission of temperature record enabled
D : transmission of temperature record disabled
Note:
When item EG is set to ‘E’, make sure the related level gauge
has no temperature option installed.

TF= Temperature source selection One ASCII character; either ‘I’ or ‘E’. This item selects if there is a
temperature measurement inside the indicator (Internal), or the
temperature has to be fetched from the Enraf field bus (External).
I : Internal (HCU optional board installed)
E : External

IM= Indicator mode One ASCII character. With XPU-2, the 877 FDI can be set in stand
alone temperature gauge mode. Then item IM has to be set to ‘T’.

EX Exit Exit protection level.

*) This item is not implemented in the XPU-2.

Analog level output

3 Analog level output


3.1 Introduction
The analog level output circuit is an option which can be installed on the HCU board. The HCU board is an
option board for the 854 servo gauges and the 877 FDI.
For the 97x SmartRadar, the analog level output is available with the optional ICU_HPO board.

The analog output circuit on the HCU and ICU_HPO optional boards are galvanic separated from the gauge
electronics.

This section (analog level output) describes the settings for analog level output for both the HCU and ICU_HPO
board. For the HART communication of the ICU_HPO board, refer to instruction manual 97x SmartRadar HART
communication output.

3.1.1 HCU analog output characteristics


The analog output is passive, hence an external power supply is required. The voltage of the loop supply should
be at least 12 Vdc, and may not exceed 64 Vdc (measured at the terminals of the gauge).

The loop resistance is the total resistance from the loop, and hence includes supply output resistance, total cable
resistance (including series resistor) and the input resistance from reader or analog input.

To reduce the power dissipation on the HCU board, an external resistor must be wired in series with the loop in
case the loop supply voltage is higher than 30 Vdc (refer to figure 3.1A). The power rating of the external
resistance depends on the value; we recommend: 1W/kW.

3.1.2 ICU_HPO analog output characteristics


The analog output can be set either passive or active (refer to section 3.2.1). When set to active, the supply
voltage in the loop is: 20 Vdc (±5%).

The voltage of the loop supply should be at least 8 Vdc, and may not exceed 64 Vdc (measured at the terminals
of the gauge). Supply voltages over 30 Vdc require an external series resistor (refer to figure 3.1B).

Note:
HART communication requires a minimum loop resistance of 250 W.
The maximum loop resistance for HART communication is 1100 W.

This implies that for HART communication the minimum supply voltage is 14 Vdc and the maximum supply
voltage is 36 Vdc with a 250 W resistor.

With a higher external supply voltage, the series resistor must be increased. With the maximum resistor for
HART communication (1100 W), the maximum loop supply will be 57 Vdc.

The power rating of the external resistance depends on the value; we recommend: 1W/kW.

3.2 Commissioning of analog level output

3.2.1 Setting of analog output 97x SmartRadar to “active”


Setting the analog output loop to active or passive is done by selecting the correct connector on the ICU_HPO
board. Standard, the 97x SmartRadar’s are delivered with the analog output loop set as ‘passive’. Hence, an
external supply voltage is required.

When the analog loop should be set to ‘active’, the connector on the ICU_HPO board needs to be changed from
position. That procedure is described below.

1 Switch off mains power from the 97x SmartRadar;


2 Open electronic compartment cover;
3 Locate the ICU_HPO board (refer to figure 3.2);
4 Loosen the cable connector from connector CN 1 (passive), and plug it into CN 2 (active);
5 Close electronic compartment cover;
6 Apply mains power.

Figure 3.2 Changing over from passive to active analog output loop supply

The commissioning of the optional analog level output part of the HCU / ICU_HPO board should be performed
after the basic commissioning of the level gauge or indicator.

3.2.3 Calibrate analog output circuit


Calibration of the analog output circuit is necessary
when the XPU NOVRAM is (re)formatted and the
items could not be down loaded from a log file or
when a new HCU / ICU_HPO board is installed.
Of course, calibration can also be performed as a
routine to be sure having a good signal.

Connect a power supply (15 - 24 Vdc) and an


accurate mA meter (accuracy better than 10 mA)
to the instrument (refer to figure 3.3).

Note:
The 97x SmartRadar can be set to active.
Then no external power supply is required.
