Connection Cables For Analog Weighing Platforms

For the installation of connection cables for analog weighing platforms please follow the recommendations listed below: Only use suitable loadcell cable, (e.g. SysTec order-No. 10KAB211. 4 x 0.75mm + 2 x 1mm, shielded,) Nominal voltage of cable 250V. Unsuitable loadcell cable may affect accuracy. The shield of the loadcell cable must be connected all around the cable in the cable gland of the weighing terminal (see also chapter 'Installation' / 'Connection Of Cables'). If an extension of the loadcell cable is required use only metal junction boxes and cable glands. The shield on both sides must be connected in the same way as at the terminal. Loadcells and/or weighing platforms, junction boxes and the terminal must be included in the potential equalization of the components of a weighing system. Depending on the situation on site this may require the installation of a separate earth lead of appropriate diameter (e.g. 16mm) in parallel to the loadcell cable. Distance between loadcell cables and power lines: 0.5m. Loadcell cables to be installed in grounded metal conduits, metal hoses or metal cable trays. Maximum length of connection cable between weighing platform and IT8000: 200m

If tension load is applied to loadcells instead of compression load, connection for +Signal and Signal must be transposed.

Interface For Digital Force Transducers With IDNet Protocol (IDN)

The IDN module (IDNet interface module) permits the connection of Mettler-Toledo understructures with IDNet interface. It supports IDNet understructures which operate on 12VDC power supply (e.g. PikBrick). Understructures which require an additional 32VDC supply cannot be connected. The IDN module supplies a current of 150mA max. It is installed in either the ADC1 or ADC2 socket. The remaining free socket can be used for an ADM or ADC board to connect a scale with up to 8 analog loadcells (350 each). Restrictions apply as follows: 1) The FBM module must not be used when an IDN board is in place, because the internal communication with the IDN module is made via COM4, i.e. this interface is not available for the fieldbus interface or an additional SIM module. When an IDN module is installed the the auxiliary voltage (10VDC on CPU8000, terminal KL4) must not be used.

The DWM module (Digital Weighing Module) permits the connection of digital force transducers (loadcells) operating on 12VDC power supply and communicating with the IT8000 via RS485 2-wire or 4-wire network. Scale bases and loadcells are supported as follows: Sartorius series IS weighing platforms digital HBM loadcells (C16i and FIT) Revere series SLC loadcells. Calibration data can be stored powerfail safe in a serial EEPROM on the DWM module. By means of the jumper W1 these data can be protected against unauthorized modification. The DWM module is installed in the ADC1 socket. The remaining socket ADC2 can be used for an ADM or ADC board to connect a scale with up to 4 analog loadcells (350 each). Restrictions apply as follows: 1) The FBM module must not be used when an DWM board is in place, because the internal communication with the DWM module is made via COM4, i.e. this interface is not available for the fieldbus interface or an additional SIM module. When an DWM module is installed the the auxiliary voltage (10VDC on CPU8000, terminal KL4) must not be used. The DWM supplies a max. of 12V / 320mA for the digital force transducer(s). If the current consumption exceeds 320mA, an external power supply is required. If the current consumption exceeds 210mA, the use of an expansion board (ECM or PCM) connected to X8 - X11 is not possible.

Connection Of Fieldbus Module

The FieldBus Module permits the connection of the IT8000 weighing terminal to standardized fieldbus systems. For the time being the DeviceNet communication is supported. For Profibus DP a separate interface board (PCM) is available. Fielbus communication compliant to COMBUS DIN 66019, Modbus RTU-Format, 3964/3964R and RK512 are supported by the IT8000 hardware and corresponding drivers. Alternatively, the FBM board can also be fitted with a serial interface module (SIM) and utilized as COM4. Fieldbus interface and COM4 cannot be used simultaneously. The FBM module must not be used when an IDN or DWM board is in place, because these modules use COM4 for the internal communication with the CPU8000, i.e. COM4 is not available for the fieldbus interface.

3.10 Connection Of Ethernet Module


With the Ethernet Controller Module (ECM) the IT8000 terminal can be connected to Ethernet networks. The ECM module is plugged into sockets X8-X11 on the CPU8000 board. Connection to the LAN is made via a prefabricated cable with RJ45 connector. The ECM module supports the TCP/IP protocol. Data can be transferred from the nework to the serial interface COM4 via the port #1234 without change of contents. The ECM module is configured with the PC program EtherPort Tool which is used to identify the module in the network and to assign an IP address with the pertaining parameters. Each ECM board has its unique MAC address which is printed on the side of the Xport module. IT8000 Service Mode settings for COM4 are as follows: 9600 Baud, format 8N, no handshake (---). The choice of the transmission protocol depends on the application program on the PC. The ECM module must not be used when an IDN or DWM board is in place, because these modules use COM4 for the internal communication with the CPU8000, i.e. COM4 is not available for the Ethernet interface.

3.13 Connection To Power Supply


3.13.1 Power Supply Unit 110 240 VAC
Mains connection of the AC version is made with a firmly connected line cord of 2.5 m length with safety plug. The auto sensing switching mode power supply unit operates on an input voltage ranging from 110 Volt (15%) to 240 Volt (+10%), 50/60 Hz. It provides the required SELV voltage of +5V / 2A. The unit has a fused input (2A slow blow). Before connecting the instrument to power please note: Input voltage of the instrument must comply with local mains supply. Factory setting: 110 240 V; 50/60Hz, line cord with safety plug firmly connected. The DC version does not have a line cord and is intended for connection to 12 V to 30V DC. Install mains supply for the instrument separate from supply for machines and equipment generating noise and/or interference (motors, relays, heatings, etc.). Even short spikes and/or drop-outs may affect the correct function of the instrument and result in defects. If problems of that nature are encountered, the installation of a voltage stabilizer or an uninterruptable power supply unit (UPS) may help to overcome the difficulties. IT8000 does not have a mains switch and is operational after connection to the mains supply. Connection to the mains supply is made via the factory installed line cord (length of cable 2.5m). Make sure that wall outlet is correctly grounded (not applicable to DC version). If the line cord with connector is used as the means to separate the instrument from the mains, the wall outlet must be installed close to the instrument and must be easily accessible! If a permanently connected mains cable is used, an easily accessible separator must be included in the supply circuit! If required, the instrument can be included in measures for potential equalization. To that effect a threaded stud is provided at the rear of the housing.

3.13.2 Power Supply Unit 12 - 30 VDC


Alternatively, the weighing terminal can be fitted with a DC power supply with an input voltage ranging from 12VDC (15%) to 30 VDC (+10%). The power supply has a fused input (2A slow blow). Connection of input voltage to DC power supply on CPU8000:

External IT8000 extensions are connected via the DeviceBus protocol (in combination with a 2-wire RS485 interface). This applies to RS485 relay or transistor modules (REL485 / TRIO485), analog 12-bit I/O modules and external scale multiplexers. By default these extensions are assigned to interface COM2, which is configured to 'DeviceBus' and 'Number of I/O modules = 0'. When a value unequal 0 is entered, the I/Os of an external relay / transistor module are read and set via the serial interface. The parallel I/Os of the IT8000 are then disabled. This feature is only available for relay and transistor modules with firmware 2.0 or higher, older versions cannot be connected.

Continued with settings for next interface. When an IDN or DWM board is installed in socket ADC1 or ADC2, the interface COM4 is not available any more.

Maintenance
CAUTION This unit and its associated equipment must be maintained by qualified personnel only, who are familiar with the construction and operation of all equipment in the system and the potential hazards involved. Failure to observe these precautions could result in bodily injury! Disconnect all power to this unit before servicing!

The IT8000 terminal is designed to require a minimum of maintenance and service, however, depending on the environmental conditions a visual inspection at regular intervals is recommended. The frequency at which normal maintenance (cleaning and inspection) should be performed, when installed in a clean office environment, should be twice a year. However, if the unit is subject to a dusty or dirty environment the frequency should be increased as required. At these inspections it should be made sure that all connected cables are undamaged and that all connectors are tightly fastened. Maintenance of scale platforms is required at regular intervals depending on use and environment. The accuracy of scales can be affected by dirt, foreign objects, etc. and appropriate maintenance is strongly recommended. Also recommended is the calibration with certified test weights at regular intervals.

5.3

Cleaning
CAUTION Disconnect all power to this unit before servicing!

Clean the keyboard and covers with a soft clean cloth that has been dampened with a mild window type cleaner. Do NOT use any type of industrial solvent or the finish of the unit may be damaged. Do not spray cleaner directly on the unit.

ACK/NAK-Protocol

In group 1 of the Service Mode the transmission protocol for the serial interfaces can be selected. If the ACK/NAK-protocol is selected, data transmission is made as per the following pattern: IT8000 PC Control Character / Data Start character Data fields in ASCII-format Example STX Consec.-No. Date, Gross, Net End character Checksum ETX XOR Comment can be selected or deselected in Service Mode sequence of data fields with their length, position of decimal point, etc. depends on application program (e.g. IT8000 BASIC, IT8000 COUNT, etc.), see also product related Installation Instructions. can be selected or deselected in Service Mode can be selected or deselected in Service Mode, options: XOR, compliment of two, no checksum

PC IT8000 Control Character ACK Comment positive confirmation for correctly received data string

or PC IT8000 Control Character NAK Comment negative confirmation for not correctly received data string

The IT8000 timeout delay for the reception of ACK or NAK is 6 sec. If a response cannot be received within 6 sec or if a negative response is received (NAK), the transmission of the data string is repeated up to 4 times. If after a total of 5 transmission attempts a response cannot be received or if only negative responses are received, an error message is indicated on the display of the IT8000 terminal which must be acknowledged by the operator. The operator has the choice either to start the transmission anew (e.g. after rectifying the problem) or switch off the data transmission. As an alternative to the ACK/NAK protocol, several other transmission protocols can be selected in the Service Mode: DUST3964(R), RK512 telegram, and No-ACK (same as ACK/NAK, however without confirmation).

Replacement Of EPROMs
Only permit qualified personnel to service this equipment! Observe precautions for handling electro static sensitive devices!

The program in the IT8000 terminal resides in 3 EPROMs located on the CPU8000 board. The operating system with the basic system functions is contained in 2 EPROMs labelled with 'RTP xxx' and a serial-No. The suffix 'xxx' represents the version (e.g. '5.01'). The labels of the two EPROMs for the operating system differ in the last character attached to the version-No.: 'L' for 'LOWER' and 'H' for 'HIGHER'. The application program (BASIC, COUNT, etc.) is contained in the third EPROM that is usually unlabelled. The application program stored in the third EPROM works only in conjunction with the appropriate version of the RTP operating system! If the version of the operating system supplied is identical to the version already installed in the IT8000 (identical serial-Nos.), only the EPROM with the application program needs to be changed. Layout of CPU8000 board

EPROM with application program EPROM with RTP operating system EPROM with suffix 'L' (left), EPROM with suffix 'H' (right)

Disconnect all power to the instrument and/or unplug line cord prior to opening the housing! Failure to observe this precaution could result in bodily injury!

Note:

Make sure only to insert EPROMs with notch pointing up (to the middle of the board)! EPROMs inserted in the wrong direction are inevitably destroyed on power up!

Replacement Of Complete Set Of EPROMs


(New version of operating system and/or new application program) Open the housing and refer to sketch shown above to locate CPU-board. If CPU is fitted with piggyback board, remove carefully by lifting it with both hands. Use small screw driver or other suitable tool and remove EPROMs carefully from sockets. Exercise care not to damage components and printed circuits underneath the EPROMs. Insert new EPROMs into sockets and make sure that all pins are properly aligned and fit into socket. If piggyback board had to be removed, insert it at its old location. Remove jumper W10, wait approx. 20 sec and put it back in place. This clears the RAM on the CPU board, and on power up the Service Mode settings are automatically loaded from Flash-EPROM. Close housing and fasten all screws tightly. Switch on power and/or plug in line cord. Immediately after power up enter Service Mode, group 6 (Hardware Diagnostics), subgroup 6 (Delete Memory), and choose 'Delete Memory Y' and 'Factory Reset Y'. Now the terminal carries out a restart and the message 'Save Parameters, Please Wait...' appears on the display while the default settings are loaded into the Flash-EPROM. Important note: By no means switch off power during this operation, because that will inevitably destroy the contents of the Flash-EPROM and thus the program.

8.2.2

Replacement Of CPU Board


(Transfer old EPROMs to new board) Use PC program 'Backup&Restore' to save settings and volatile data, if that is not possible, at least write down Service Mode settings. Open the housing and refer to sketch shown above to locate CPU-board. If CPU is fitted with piggyback board, remove carefully by lifting it with both hands. Use small screw driver or other suitable tool and remove EPROMs carefully from sockets. Exercise care not to damage components and printed circuits underneath the EPROMs. Insert old EPROMs into sockets of new CPU and make sure that all pins are properly aligned and fit into socket. Install new CPU in weighing terminal, if piggyback board had to be removed, insert it at its old location. Remove jumper W10, wait approx. 20 sec and put it back in place. This clears the RAM on the CPU board, and on power up the Service Mode settings are automatically loaded from Flash-EPROM. Close housing and fasten all screws tightly. Switch on power and/or plug in line cord. Restore settings and data with PC program 'Backup&Restore' or enter settings as written down. In any case check Service Mode settings.

8.2.3

Replacement Of Flash-EPROM
(New version of application program) Use PC program 'Backup&Restore' to save settings and volatile data, if that is not possible, at least write down Service Mode settings. Open the housing and refer to sketch shown above to locate CPU-board. If CPU is fitted with piggyback board, remove carefully by lifting it with both hands. Use small screw driver or other suitable tool and remove Flash-EPROMs carefully from socket. Exercise care not to damage components and printed circuits underneath the EPROM. Insert the new Flash-EPROM into socket and make sure that all pins are properly aligned and fit into socket. If piggyback board had to be removed, insert it at its old location. Close housing and fasten all screws tightly. Switch on power and/or plug in line cord. On power up the display remains dark for several seconds while the Service Mode parameters are copied from the CPU's RAM into the Flash-EPROM. Important note: By no means switch off power during this operation, because that will inevitably destroy the contents of the Flash-EPROM and thus the program. Restore settings and data with PC program 'Backup&Restore' or enter settings as written down. In any case check Service Mode settings.

Replacement Of Battery
For the storage of data IT8000 contains a lithium battery. Risk of explosion if battery is replaced improperly! Replace only with battery of the same type or with compatible type recommended by manufacturer. Disposal of used batteries only as indicated by manufacturer.

The life time of the lithium battery that backs up RAM and realtime clock is at least three years in normal operation. Thus, the battery needs to be replaced at 3-year intervals by a trained service technician. To replace the battery, service kit 16ZUB001 is required. This kit consists of a 3V battery (2 size AA alkaline batteries in row), incorporated in a plastic housing with 2 connecting leads, LED and switch. If switch is on, LED must be lit to indicate that voltage is higher than 2V. If this is not the case batteries must be replaced. Disconnect all power to the instrument and/or unplug line cord prior to opening the housing! Failure to observe this precaution could result in bodily injury! To replace the battery proceed as follows: Disconnect all power to the instrument, unplug line cord. Open the IT8000 housing and refer to picture below to locate CPU8000 board. Use small screw driver or other suitable tool and carefully remove bracket from battery holder. Switch on service kit, LED must be lit. Connect leads with test clamps at battery holder. Do not short circuit, observe polarity! Carefully remove old battery from holder and insert new one. To prevent loss of RAM contents make sure that test clamps do not come off. Remove test clamps, put bracket of battery holder back in place. Close housing and power the instrument up. Display of IT8000 shows power up message. The unit is operational again. Connection of service kit for change of battery:

Combination Of Options

The interface boards to connect digital force transducers (IDN, DWM) as well as the extensions for fieldbus and Ethernet connection (FBM, ECM) use the same serial interface COM4 for the internal communication, i.e. it is not possible to use more than one of these options at a time. The rating of the IT8000 power supply is 5V (2A max.). All other voltages are generated from this supply by means of DC/DC converters. Thus, it must be made sure that the 5V power supply is not overloaded (e.g. by the connection of digital force transducers). This leads to restrictions for the combination of several options as shown in the following table: Scale interface ADC / IDN / DWM Analog loadcells (350 ) max. 16 in any combination max. 8 max. 4 max. 4 Option FBM or ECM Yes Option PCM Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Auxiliary voltage 10VDC / 100mA

1 or 2 ADC 1 IDN 1 DWM (I 210mA) 1 DWM (210mA I 320mA) *) 1 IDN 1 ADC 1 DWM (I 210mA) 1 ADC 1 DWM (210mA I 320mA) *) 1 ADC *)

Yes

The current consumption depends on type and number of the connected force transducers. A set of 4 digital HBM C16i loadcells -for instance- has a typical power consumption of 200mA.
