General Description Firmware Update Startup Procedure Pressure Measurement Opening the Step or Ramp Configuration Window Mathematical Special Measurements.. Things to Consider when Measuring Pressure Phases of Instrument Calibration Calibration Result Windows An introduction to what MC5 is and what the parts of this User Guide concentrate on.
A general description of MC5s hardware. A general description of MC5s firmware. The modularity and options of MC5. Safety precautions and warnings. Briefly about how to service MC5. Introduction Congratulations for selecting the ultimate calibration tool! MC5 is a documenting All-In-One Multifunction Calibrator with calibration capability of pressure, temperature, electrical and frequency signals. MC5s modularity allows customized construction.
If requirements increase in the future, new functionality may be added by getting additional modules, e. Thanks to the logical user interface MC5 is very easy to use. The large backlit graphical display guides the user in different languages and it displays results both numerically and graphically. MC5 performs automatic calibration of pressure, electrical and temperature process instruments.
It is capable of communicating with external devices such as pressure controllers. MC5 represents the state of the art in accuracy, adaptability and allround usability. Part A discusses general matters. There is also a chapter about safety. Part B describes the basic use of MC5 such as measuring and generating signals.
Part D concentrates on calibration and matters related to calibration like handling instrument data. The even page header displays the title of the active part.
The odd page header displays the main subject Heading level 1. The header of each odd page also indicates the active part as shown in the adjacent picture with Part B active. Use the information provided in the headers as a quick guide when searching for a particular subject. Typographical Conventions All examples of user interface texts are printed using 8 pt Arial Black, e. Unpacking and Inspection At the factory each new MC5 passes a careful inspection.
It should be free of scrapes and scratches and in proper operation order upon receipt. The receiver should, however, inspect the unit for any damage that may have occurred during transit. If there are signs of obvious mechanical damage, package contents are incomplete, or the instrument does not operate according to specifications, contact the purchasing sales office as soon as possible. For a description of available hardware and software options, see MC5s Modularity and Options on page If you have to return the instrument to the factory for any reason, use the original packing whenever possible.
Include a detailed description of the reason for the return. The accessory polyurethane hose supplied with the calibrator is rated to the maximum pressure of 20 bar at 21C psi at 70F. Applying higher pressure can be hazardous.
Note: The stickers and the batteries may be affected when storing longer periods in extreme conditions. All sections and connections are presented in detail on the next pages. Keep in mind that the previous picture as well as all pictures of MC5 in this manual has an example configuration of modules. The configuration of your MC5 may vary significantly from the one in the picture. The connector is located on the right hand side of the upper panel and is marked with PX1 in a sticker on the upper panel.
One of them may be an internal barometric module. Although the Barometric Module reserves the space allocated for an internal pressure module it does not need a connector in the upper panel, so the space reserved for the connector may be used for, e.
The connectors for Internal Pressure modules start from the second connector on the left. The possible Barometric Module is always located as second from right and it measures the barometric pressure through a connection in the back panel of MC5.
Normally nothing need to connected to the barometric pressure modules connector. Internal pressure modules are marked with P1 P3. The Barometric Module does not have an abbreviation. The whole name is written on the module. The recommended pressure medium for all internal pressure modules is clean air. To avoid damaging the calibrator, use hand tightening only when connecting the pressure measurement hoses max.
If the use of tools is required to secure the connection typically pressure modules with a pressure range higher than 20 bar , apply the counterforce with a spanner on the connector bodys hexagonal part. The overpressure protection of the internal pressure modules vents to the back of the calibrator. Remember to be cautious when working with pressure and pressure modules. See also chapters Safety on page 26 and Safety Precautions and Warnings on page This sensor is only meant for environment temperature measurement.
It should not be used as a reference sensor when calibrating temperature instruments. The PC may have a calibration software capable of communicating with MC5 or, e.
The same connector can be used when MC5 is connected to an optional portable printer. The printer may be used for printouts of user interface screens e. Using auxiliary instruments is described in Part C of this manual. The Front Panel The front panel has several sections. Some of them are pointed out with a callout in the picture of Operational Sections and Connections, and some of them not e. The ones with a callout are discussed first in the following paragraphs.
Electrical Module E module The E module can measure the following quantities: voltage, current and frequency. It can also be used when counting pulses or detecting the state of a switch. Additionally there is a possibility to generate current and supply an instrument with a 24 VDC power supply.
This allows communication with an instrument with HART capabilities. RJ 2-w xmtr. Electrical and Temperature Module ET module. The ET module is specially designed for temperature instrument calibration needs. It is not however restricted to only temperature instrument use because it can also generate voltage, current, frequency and pulses.
Resistance and RTD measurement. Resistance and RTD simulation. It is specially designed for MC5 and therefore best suited for reference junction compensation when calibrating thermocouples or instruments connected to a thermocouple. Hand tightening is adequate. Otherwise you might damage the contact surface of the connectors. Then the reference junction arrangements have to be done outside MC5 and the correct reference junction settings as well as the reference junction temperature have to be informed to MC5.
Part B of this manual describes in detail what kind of reference junction settings are available. Display MC5 has a backlit transreflective display. The resolution of the display is x pixels. To quickly tune the contrast of the display: down.
Press and hold the light button Use the up and down arrow keys to change the contrast. Press and hold the light button down.
