Description
The ActionI/Q model Q116 is a DIN rail mount, RTD input limit alarm with dual setpoints and two contact closure outputs. The field configurable input and alarm functions offer flexible setpoint capability. There are up to eight temperature ranges available for each RTD type to ensure accuracy and maximize setpoint resolu- tion.

The Q116 is configurable as a single or dual setpoint alarm, with HI or LO trips and failsafe or non-failsafe operation. Also included are adjustable deadbands (up to 100% of full scale input) for each setpoint and a universal AC power supply which accepts any voltage between 85 and 265VAC.

TouchCAL Technology
Action has simplified setpoint calibration. Using a pushbutton instead of potentiometers, improvements in calibration resolu- tion are realized due to the elimination of the potentiometer's mechanical variability.

For calibration, simply input the signal level of the desired trip and press the pushbutton to store it in non-volatile memory. Deadband is entered the same way with another pushbutton press to store.

Diagnostic LEDS
The Q116 is equipped with three front panel LEDs. The green LED is a dual function LED labeled IN, which indicates line power and input signal status. Active AC power is indicated by the illuminated LED. If this LED is off, check AC power and wiring connections. If the input signal is 7% above or below the configured input range the green LED will flash at 8Hz or 4Hz, respectively.

The two red LEDs indicate the relay state of each setpoint. An illuminated red LED indicates the tripped condition for the respective setpoint.

Output
The Q116 is equipped with two SPDT (form C) relays, rated at
120VAC or 28VDC at 5 amperes. Each of these relays is indepen- dently controlled by the field configurable setpoint and deadband .

Operation
The Q116 limit alarm setpoints can be configured for HI or LO, failsafe or non-failsafe operation. Each of the setpoints has a respective HI or LO deadband. In a tripped condition, the setpoint is exceeded and the appropriate red LED will illuminate. The trip will reset only after the process falls below the HI deadband or rises above the low deadband (see Figure 1). For proper deadband operation, the HI setpoint must be set above the LO setpoint. In failsafe operation, the relay is energized when the process is below the HI setpoint or above the LO setpoint (opposite for non- failsafe). In the failsafe mode, a power failure results in an alarm state output.

Dynamic Deadband
Circuitry in the Q116 prevents false trips by repeatedly sampling the input. The input must be beyond the setpoint for 100 milliseconds, uninterrupted, to qualify as a valid trip condition. Likewise, the input must fall outside the deadband and remain there for 100 milliseconds to return the alarm to an untripped condition. This results in a "dynamic deadband" -based on time- in addition to the normal deadband.

Configuration
Unless otherwise specified, the factory presets the Model Q116 as follows:

Input:
Platinum (100 ohm)
Range:
  0 to 250 C
Output:
  Dual, SPDT
Trip:
  A: HI; B: LO
Failsafe:
  No
Deadband:
  A, B: 0.25%

The AC power input accepts any AC source between 85 and
265VAC.

Note: An I/Q Rail is required to power the modules. See ordering information

For other I/O ranges, refer to Tables 1 through 4 and reconfigure switches SW1 and SW2 for the desired input type, range and function.

WARNING: Do not change switch settings with power applied. Severe damage will result!

1. With the module removed from the rail and not powered, snap off the face plate by lifting the right edge away from the heatsink. Slide the heat sink off the module. Note the input switches (SW1 & SW2) are located under the heatsink. Set positions 1 through 8 on "SW2" and position 8 on SW1 for RTD type (see Tables 1 & 4).

2. Set position 1 through 4 of input range switch "SW1" for the desired RTD type and input temperature range (Table 3).

3. Set position 5 and 6 of input range switch "SW1" to ON (Closed) for a HI trip setpoint or OFF (Open) for a LO trip setpoint (Figure 6 & Table 2).

4. Set position 7 of input range switch "SW1" to ON (Closed) for non-failsafe operation or OFF (Open) for failsafe operation (e.g., alarm trips on power failure).

Calibration
1. After configuring the DIP switches, connect the input to a calibrated RTD source or a resistance decade box and apply power.

Note: For best results, calibration should be performed in the operating environment, mounted on a DIN rail, allowing at least one hour for thermal equilibrium of the system.

2. After applying power to the unit all three LEDs will flash for approximately 10 seconds. Adjust the input signal level for the Relay "A" setpoint. The green LED should be on. Press and hold the CAL button for 4 seconds (until the red LED starts flashing) to enter the calibration mode. The green LED will be on and the red Relay "A" LED will be flashing.

NOTE: If the green LED is flashing, the input is out of range (i.e. 7 % above or below the configured range). Check to make sure the input signal is within the DIP switch configuration range. Double check the DIP switch settings.

3. Setpoint "A": Input the desired trip level for Relay "A" and push the CAL button. The green LED and the red Relay "A" LED will be flashing. Note that the green LED will stop flashing when the input drops below a high setpoint or rises above a low setpoint.

4). Deadband "A": For minimum deadband (approximately 0.25%), press and hold the CAL button for 4 seconds. For high setpoints, lower the input level to the desired deadband point and push the CAL button. For low setpoints, increase the input level (green LED turns off) to the desired deadband level and push the CAL button. The green LED will be on and the red Relay "B" LED will be flashing.

5. Setpoint "B": Input the desired trip level for Relay "B" and push the CAL button. The green and the red Relay "B" LED will be flashing. Note that the green LED will stop flashing when the input drops below a high setpoint or rises above a low setpoint.

6. Deadband "B": For minimum deadband (approximately 0.25%), press and hold the CAL button for 4 seconds. For high setpoints, lower the input level (green LED turns off) to the desired deadband point and push the CAL button. For low setpoints, increase the input level to the desired deadband level and push the CAL button. The green LED will be on and both the red LEDs will be flashing.

7. Press the CAL button once again to exit the calibration mode. Check the setpoint and deadband to validate calibration.

Relay Protection and EMI Suppression
When switching inductive loads, maximum relay life and transient EMI suppression is achieved using external protection (see Figures 2 and 3). Place all protection devices directly across the load and minimize all lead lengths. For AC inductive loads, place a properly rated MOV across the load in parallel with a series RC snubber. Use a 0.01 to 0.1mF pulse film capacitor (foil polypropylene recom- mended) of sufficient voltage, and a 47 ohm 1/2W carbon resistor. For DC inductive loads, place a diode across the load (PRV > DC supply, 1N4006 recommended) with (+) to cathode and (-) to anode (the RC snubber is an optional enhancement).loads, place a properly-rated MOV across the load in parallel with a series RC snubber. Use a 0.01 to 0.1mF pulse film capacitor (foil polypro- pylene recommended) with (+) to cathode and (-) to anode (the RC snubber is an optional enhancement).

Note:

1. During normal operation, the green LED will be ON or flashing. The Red LEDs will be ON while the relative relays are tripped.

2. In the calibration mode, if no button is pushed within 2 minutes, the unit will revert to normal operatin.
