Isolated Input Signal Connections

Isolated input signal connections are made to removable screw terminal connectors, which are labeled individually on the back panel of the controller. The back panel shows the type of input card installed in each slot (The top slot is #1 and the bottom is #7). Individual inputs are referenced as PI-1 to PI-4 for pulse inputs and AI-1 to AI-4, AI-5 to AI-8, etc for analog inputs.

4-20 mA Analog Input Connections

Analog 4-20 Input connections are made to screw terminal connectors (two inputs per connector). The following figures show examples for typical applications. Each of the 4-20 mA inputs may be connected in any of the modes shown below.

Flow Meter Pulse Input Connections

Flow Meter Pulse Inputs are wired to four-terminal connectors (two inputs per connector). A square waveform is used in the illustration, but the input is capable of reading many other types of signals within the voltage and frequency ranges specified.

Digital Input Connections

Inputs are wired between terminals 1-5 of the digital inputconnector and the G terminal of the 2-position connector above the digital inputs. Normally open switch contacts may be used as shown in the figure below. The diagram also shows a Digital Input using an NPN open collector transistor output from a live signal. Logic LO or switch closure appearing across the terminals is interpreted as ON. When using an open collector transistor, a logic HI at the base (marked “B” in the figure below) will be interpreted as ON. The 2-position connector has a +5 V terminal that may be used to provide excitation to some sensors requiring more than the pull-up provided on each digital input terminal.

Analog Output Connections

The following figures show examples for isolated 4-20 mA transmitter output connections. Terminal connectors are labeled individually. The analog outputs are isolated from each other and from the inputs. They are powered internally to provide an active 4-20 mA output loop. The outputs may be powered externally by connecting the positive voltage to the Ex+ terminal.

Switching Inductive Loads

The ConsoliDator+ has internal circuitry to protect the relays from inductive loads, however, the use of suppressors (snubbers) is strongly recommended when switching inductive loads to prevent disrupting the microprocessor’s operation. The suppressors also prolong the life of the relay contacts. Suppression can be obtained with resistorcapacitor (RC) networks assembled by the user or purchased as complete assemblies. Refer to the following circuits for RC network assembly and installation.

AC and DC Internal Inductive Load Protection
AC and DC Internal Inductive Load Protection

For additional external protection choose R and C as follows:

R: 0.5 to 1 Ω for each volt across the contacts
C: 0.5 to 1 μF for each amp through closed contacts

Notes:

  1. Use capacitors rated for 250 VAC.
  2. RC networks may affect load release time of solenoid loads. Check to confirm proper operation.
  3. Install the RC network at the instrument's relay screw terminals. An RC network may also be installed across the load. Experiment for best results.

Use diode with a reverse breakdown voltage two to three times the circuit voltage and forward current at least as large as the load current.

RC Networks Available from Precision Digital

RC networks are available from Precision Digital and should be applied to each relay contact switching an inductive load. Part number: PDX6901.

Serial Communication Connections

The RS-485 port for serial communication (using Modbus protocol) has three terminals labeled D+, D-, and G. It is strongly recommended to use three-wire shielded cable and to always connect the ground terminal to the other equipment’s ground to avoid differential voltage between the systems. Distances up to 4000 feet can be reached with RS-485. Up to 32 Modbus devices may be connected to a single RS-485 bus.

Ethernet Option

The Ethernet port is available on the RJ45 connector. This allows the ConsoliDator+ to connect to a local area network. The Ethernet port option is configured using the System menu. See the PD9000 ConsoliDator+ manual for ethernet port setup details.

External Keypad Connections

Normally open pushbuttons may be wired to the digital inputs connector for use when the front panel of the controller is not accessible. The external keys may be assigned to replicate the Menu and F1-F4 function keys.
