      How to enable 100ms Frequency monitoring on a CM4000 series meter

      Issue
      Enabling 100ms frequency monitoring on a CM4000

      Product Line
      CM4000

      Environment
      High Speed Monitoring

      Cause
      By default 100ms frequency monitoring is not enabled

      Resolution
      100ms Frequency monitoring is disabled by default on the CM4000 series meters. To enable this feature, the following command writes must be executed to the meter:

      Write 9020 to register 8000
      Write 11 to register 3239
      Write 1 to register 8001
      Write 9021 to register 8000

      This will enable 100ms Frequency monitoring. The value is stored in register 1080 (Units - 0.01 Hz).

      Can the 10MDP be purchased in black ?

      10MDP are not available as a standard part in black but can be ordered as a special. This will need to be quoted and there is a minimum Quantity buy of 50.

      ION Network Time Protocol (NTP) or Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) Implementation: Why does the ION NTP time implementation only have 1 second accuracy, when NTP time synchronizing has 10ms accuracy over a public network?

      ION meters do not do NTP time synchronizing. The algorithm used is SNTP time synchronizing.

      - NTP = network time protocol

      - SNTP = simple network time protocol

      - SNTP is only +/-1sec accuracy, The 1 second accuracy number is a result of the ntp max timeout parameter, which is set to 2 seconds. This means it'll accept time-synchs with up to 1 second network delay. (round-trip)

      - No matter the amount of testing that is done, it is not possible to guarantee a time-sync accuracy of anything better than +-1 second. Even if it was possible to characterize the network, meter loading, and other factors, there is still no guarantee that it will always be that accuracy since the meter will accept 1 second old time-synchs. Therefore, the best that the meters can claim is that they will be accurate to at least 1 second. Typically, but not necessarily always, the delay will be less than 1 second.

      - True NTP time synchronizing uses multiple time servers to verify the time and control the slew rate of the PC

      - SNTP uses only one server to provide time, it then calculates the required jump to perform it, and can compensate for round trip network delay time

      - Very similar in terms of TCP/IP protocols, except for the accuracy and that SNTP does not require storing previous communication data.

      Why do I get error message "There is not enough room on disk drive C:\884FolderName to create the BIN file" when creating a new database in the ProWorx 884 software?

      To eliminate the "There is not enough room on disk drive C:\884FolderName to create the BIN file" error, you have two options when creating a new ProWorx 884 database:
      1) Create a new 10Meg partition on your hard-drive other than the C: drive. This is because the ProWorx 884 DOS software was created a long time ago when hard-drives were no bigger than 20Meg. Anything over 20Meg and the ProWorx 884 software will see it as not enough disk space.

      2) Create a new ProWorx 884 database and put it into the A: floppy drive. Then copy the new ProWorx 884 database files from the A: floppy drive and place them into your C:\884FolderName folder. You can then go into the C:\884FolderName folder, select and open the database and start programming.

      Please note that there is a factory installed jumper between AI- and com that allows this input to work with a 0 to10vdc input.  If you remove the jumper, then it becomes an -10vdc to +10vdc input.

      On the ATV312, the 0-10vdc signal is landed on AI1 only.


       

      Performance Effects of 10Mb/s vs. 100 Mb/s on Ethernet cable from a NOE Module to the Switch

      Goals and Symptoms

      This document will outline factors related to performance including, PLC CPU scan time, Modbus data types and Ethernet Line bandwidth. It will become apparent that in an automation network the speed of the wire is not the hindering factor when it comes to performance.

      Facts and Changes

      Quantum Platform, SCADA system, 10/100 MB Ethernet cables, Unity Pro, Concept, Proworx NxT, Proworx 32

      Causes and Fixes

      The number of Modbus requests serviced by the NOE module will vary by the NOE module Exec version and the CPU that it is attached to. But in a maximum case the module can service 12 Modbus requests per PLC scan.
      In the example below, we calculate the time it takes to send 1 Modbus query to read 100 holding registers (4x) and receive 1 Modbus response to that query on a 10 Mbs Ethernet link.

      As a reminder, in this resolution the actual Ethernet cables speed is
      At 10 Mb/s transfer rate it can carry 10 * 1,000,000 = 10,000,000 bits/second
      At 100 Mb/s data transfer rate, it can carry 100 * 1,000,000 = 100,000,000 bits/second


      Modbus query of reading 100 4x holding registers is 82 bytes
      MAC 18 bytes (6 Destination MAC, 6 Source MAC, 2 Ether type, 4 FCS)
      IP Header 20 bytes
      TCP Header 20 bytes
      MB Header 7 bytes (2 XID, 2 Protocol version, 2 length, 1 unit ID,)
      MB PDU 5 bytes (1 byte function code, 2 start reference, 2 no of words to read)
      IPG 12 bytes
      Query Total 82 bytes
      656 bits of data

      On a 10 Mb/s link 656 bits/10,000,000 bits/s = 0.0656 ms
      On a 100 Mb/s link 656 bits/100,000,000 bits/s = 0.00656 ms

      Sending 12 of such messages on a 10 Mb/s link will only take about 0.7872 ms and the same message sent on a 100 Mb link will take 0.07872 ms. As you can see the time difference is insignificant when compared to the actual CPU scan.

      Modbus response to that query is 279 bytes
      MAC 18 bytes (6 Destination MAC, 6 Source MAC, 2 Ether type, 4 FCS)
      IP 20 bytes
      TCP 20 bytes
      MB Header 7 bytes (2 XID, 2 Protocol version, 2 length, 1 unit ID,)
      MB PDU 202 bytes (1 function code, 1 byte count, 100 words response data)
      IPG 12 bytes
      Response Total 279 bytes
      2232 bits

      On a 10 Mb/s link 2232 bits/10,000,000 = 0.2232 ms
      On a 100 Mb/s link 2232 bits/100,000,000 = 0.02232 ms

      Note: Message size does have bearing on overall transmission time and it takes longer to transmit the response than to send a query.

      Sending 12 of such message on a 10 Mb/s link will take 2.6784 ms and the same message sent on a 100 Mb/s link will take 0.26784 ms.

      For an average CPU you will have a 35 ms scan time. Therefore any delay to link speed being either 10 MB or 100 MB is reasonably insignificant compare to CPU scan.

      Application Example for Network utilization:

      In this example the CPU is executing 10 Modbus Query/Response transactions as outlined above to simulate IO Scanning 100 registers at a 100ms Repetition Rate.

      0.000656 % TX Load @ 10 Mbs
      0.002232 % RX Load @ 10 Mbs

      0.0000656 % TX Load @ 100 Mbs
      0.0002232 % RX Load @ 100 Mbs

      The link speed comparison is insignificant on Application Response Time compared to other factors:

      o CPU scan
      o Datatypes requested (4x register vs. none 4x)
      o Half duplex operation
      o Slave device response time delay

      Note: Half duplex can be a significant factor at either 10 or 100 Mb/s due to collisions which will result in communication delays. Typically devices operating at 10 Mb are usually operating at half duplex and therefore subject to collision.



      I/O Scanner
      I/O Scanner messages are serviced at the end of CPU scan. Each IO Scanner entry requires 0.3 ms to process. IO Scanners response time also depends on the response time of the remote device being IO Scanned.

      For example one I/O scanner entry that reads/writes 10 words (~115 bytes or 920 bits) takes approximately 0.092 ms to send on 10 Mbs link, versus 0.0092 ms to process on a 100 Mbs link. The actual time difference related to the connection speed in this example is less than 1 millisecond at 0.0828 ms.

      In summary the CPU scan and remote devices response time have more impact on I/O Scanner response time than the link speed. Regardless of the link speed the difference is minute.

      Please refer to the following procedure for reading the configuration setting via Modbus Channel

      1. Check the Function Identifier of the corresponding ANSI Protection Function. Please refer to the attachment for the information of the Function Identifier.
      2. Write the Function Identifier to the Modbus address 8321d. 
        • For example, to read the configuration of ANSI46 Negative Sequence / unbalance from SEPAM 20, the Function Code is 03 and the Unit Number is 01. Therefore, write the value 0301h into Modbus address 8321d

           
      3. Read the modbus address from 8193d to 8201d (9 words)
        ​​
         
      4. The meaning of the reading value is
      • a) This protection function is enabled (Modbus Address 8194 and 8195)
        b) IDMT Curve is selected (Modbus Address 8196 and 8197)
        c) Is set Point = 48% Ib (Modbus Address 8198 and 8199)
        d) Tripping Time Delay = 160ms (Modbus Address 8200 and 8201)

      Cause

      Many users are upgrading their networking environments and looking to understand if APC Network Management Card devices support 1GB/10GB Ethernet connections.


      Resolution

      APC Network Management Card enabled devices support 10/100mbps Ethernet connections. Generally, 1GB Ethernet switches will support 100mbps (either by auto-negotation or configuration modification) but 10GB switches will not. Though, sometimes vendors offer special hardware modules that can provide 100mbps capability for 10GB Ethernet Switches.

      It is suggested that users can check the documentation on their networking equipment to find out if the equipment is capable of 10mbps or more commonly 100mbps and how it can be accomplished. If it can, then APC Network Management Cards will operate normally in a 100mbps environment.

      Why is the Battery Management System AP9921X-AP9922 reading negative ohmic values?


      Issue
      My AP9921X-AP9922 is displaying negative ohmic values.

      Product Line

      AP9921X-AP9922


      Environment

      • All serial numbers
      • All firmware versions


      Cause
      The battery management system will not display a valid ohmic value until it has seen a discharge event long enough to scan the entire battery string. 


      Resolution
      It takes a discharge of five seconds at a minimum of 10amps to trigger the discharge test.  Once that is triggered, the system begins scanning at four monitoring points per second until:

      1. a positive current flow indicates that the discharge has ended, or
         
      2.  the user defined low voltage is reached. At that point, the BMS goes to a "hibernate" mode, simply checking for a positive current flow on a regular timed cycle, and shuts everything else off. When a positive current flow is detected, the system wakes up and begins monitoring again.
      The BMS has to be able to scan the entire battery string one time during the discharge in order to provide ohmic data in the Ohmic Value field in the display.

      What is the accuracy of the ATS48 display for motor current (LCR) and is the overload protection of the unit based upon this same value being perceived and displayed by unit?

      Facts and Changes

      ATS48 Customer display reads aproximately 10amps lower (Loaded and Unloaded) than three different meters that have tested amperage with

      Causes and Fixes

      The accuracy of the current display LCR is around 5 and 10%.
      In fact, l'ATS is not a measurement instrument like a digital ampmeter.
      The measure of two currents is made by two transformer. The third current is re-formed by the software of product.
      The accuracy and the resolution of the measurement line and the digital processing generate the difference between the value (LCR) on the display and the real value (rms current).
      Remark, when the current is near of nominal current ICL, better is the accuracy.

      What is the difference between Normal Duty versus Heavy Duty for the Altivar Process Drive?

      Issue:
      Altivar Process Drive understanding Normal vs Heavy Duty?

      Product Line:
      Altivar Process Drive (ATV630, ATV930, ATV650, ATV950, ATV660, ATV960, ATV680, ATV980)

      Environment:
      All of the Altivar Process Drives

      Cause:
      None

      Resolution:

      Explanation
      The main difference lies within the overload capability of the drive. This setting adjusts the drives current limitations. 
      The "Current Limitation" limits your current based on the overload capability setting of the drive for a maximum time frame of 60s.
      Typically this is your initial starting current
      The drive overload capability can be changed by adjusting the "Dual Rating" parameter in the drive (under menu 5.2 Motor Parameters). There are 2 different settings: Normal Duty / Normal Rating and Heavy Duty / High rating.

      To access the parameter:
      [Complete settings] [Motor parameters] [Dual Rating] drt

      Overload Capability
      ATV600:
      ND +10% (Current Limitations up to 110% of rated current)
      HD +50% (Current Limitations up to 150% of rated current)

      ATV900:
      ND +20% (Current Limitations up to 120% of rated current)
      HD +50% (Current Limitations up to 150% of rated current)

      Understand that when changing the overload capability from normal duty to heavy duty you are de rating the drive to a lower hp size.
      Example below:
      ATV630D75N4
      ND +10% (110%) = Drive Rating of 100hp @ 480 Vac
      HD +50% (150%) = Drive Rating of 75hp @ 480 Vac


      Tips:
      When doing a drive selection, its always a good idea to choose a heavy duty drive if you are not certain the Normal Duty rating will be sufficient.
      Use the links below to access the ATV630 and ATV930 installation manuals and look in the Technical Data section under Electrical Data to find the details on Normal Duty and Heavy Duty.

      3720ACM responds to every other request in a modbus network

      Goals and Symptoms

      In a Modbus master-slave network, legacy meter responds only to every other request and ignore the others.

      Causes and Fixes

      In Modbus RTU communication topology, messages start with a silent interval of AT LEAST 3.5 characters. This is most easily implemented as a multiple of character times at the baud rate that is being used on the network. In legacy Power Measurement meters, depending on the network, the silent interval may exceed 3.5 characters. On a healthy network with baud rate 9600 this gap should be equal to ~3ms, which is too fast for the legacy devices to catch. On a newer network like this any message sent will hit the silent interval on the 3720, so the meter will not respond. However, the following request will be received after enough silent duration and the meter will respond. This will carry on so the meter will only respond to every other request.
      Adjusting the RTS (Request To Send) interval greater than 100ms (or longer) on the master side will enable the meter to catch all the request packages sent to the network. This adjustment will manipulate the master to hold 100 ms in between every request which will give enough time to the legacy meters.

      Cause:
      N/A

      Resolution:
      Under the Inputs / Outputs CFG menu, select Analog/logic output and assign to Frq Limit.  (I-O- > d0 > FtA). 
      If AO1t is assigned to 10U the output is 10VDC from AOV and COM terminals.  If AO1t is assigned to 4A or 0A, the output is 24VDC. 
      Alternatively, the R2 relay can be used.  Set R2 assignment Freq th. att. (I-O- > r2 > FtA). 
      Under the Settings menu, adjust Freq Threshold to desired frequency (SEt- > Ftd)
      When the drive output speed reaches the Ftd setting, the relay or digital output will energize and stay energized as long as the speed is at, or above the Ftd setting.

      Resolution:
      Make sure type parameter TYP is set to 2 which will preset all of your frequency settings to 60hz.
      Check the upper limit UL setting in the programming to see if its set to 60hz.
      Check your logic inputs R or RES F112 and F113 to see if they are set to 6 or preset speed.
      Check your analog input scaling VIA= F201 thru F204  or VIB F210 thru F213.
      Check the display make sure the drive is not flashing a C for current limit.  If the drive is in current limit it will back the speed of the motor down to see the current will follow.
      Check the analog input signal to make sure that you have good voltage or current from the analog input to CC.

      SEPAM series 80 with MES120 Normally Closed Input trips upon loss of supply power

      Goals and Symptoms

      Symptom

      • Configuration : Sepam series 80 using a MES120 digital input set as tripping order and normally closed contact (negative case is ticked off )
      • Sepam trips when auxiliairy power supply interrupted.
      • After clearing trip on Sepam, the Sepam units comes to normal operating condition without changing the state of input .

      Facts and Changes

      Key Words and Phrases
      Input state change from loss of supply power, loss of supply power triggers state change,ride-through power, delayed power loss, delayed power cycle

      Causes and Fixes

      Cause
      This will append when digital inputs and Sepam base unit share the same power supply.
      Because the Sepam unit has an enough ride-through energy reserved to allow for momentary outages of up to 100ms without power cycling, the Sepam will detect the logical input falling down to zero due to power loss before losing its own energization. This functionning is quite normal if no precautions are taken to prevent it .

      Note : Sepam series 20 and 40 don't show that behaviour because they have a faster shut down.


      Resolution

      As a precaution against this behavior, it is suggested to :

      - if application makes it possible, delay the tripping of normally closed contact inputs via logical equation for 200ms

      - if delay is not applicable, use another input as "presence of voltage" and combine it with logical equation.

      For example :
      I105 = external trip NC
      I106 = presence of voltage
      equations : LATCH VL1 (optional)
      V1 = I105 AND I106
      V_TRIPCB = V1
      Link a message like "external trip" to V1

      - otherwise, to avoid trip at voluntary shut down, add a warning near the auxiliairy circuit breaker.
