SAFETY NOTES




1. Check and if necessary calibrate the boom angle sensor (Inclinometer) prior to
calibration of the load sensors.

2. Care should be taken when removing the sensor cover to gain access to the
sensor unit and its wiring. The sensor cover should be supported at all times when
the socket head retaining screws are removed. The sensor covers are heavy and if
their weight is allowed to hang on the internal wiring damage to the wires and
sensor could occur. On reassembly it is essential to use the correct torque figure
for the cover retaining screws.

General Description


The MIPEG 2000 crane load indicator system, comprise sensors fitted to the crane, a computer
cabinet and a display located in the crane cabin. Figure 2.1 shows a block diagram of the MIPEG
2000 system.

The load sensors provide frequency modulated electrical signals that are proportional to the
developed loads in the load hoist rope systems of the crane. An inclinometer provides boom angle
information that is used for calculation of the hook radius.

In operation the actual load lifted by the crane are automatically compared with corresponding data
related to the maximum permissible crane loading. The permissible and actual loads, together with
the actual, expressed as a percentage of permissible are displayed. If this percentage exceeds a
pre-set value, alarms and safety functions are activated.

The computer stores the required load-radius curves. These fixed crane parameters are stored in
the main computer's memory while the calibration of the crane is performed using known loads and
boom angle, or known calibration factors. This information is tabulated into the main computer
memory via push buttons on the Display unit.



MIPEG 2000 in standard version comprises the following main parts:

- Computer Cabinet (6.1)
- Driver's Display (6.2)
- Sensors (load and boom angle) (6.3)


A technical description of these main parts is given in Section 6. The numbers in parenthesis are
references to paragraphs for these descriptions.

Operating Instructions


3.1 Brief Description of MIPEG 2000 Operation

MIPEG 2000 is a computerised crane safety system. It measures load and radius and indicates
safe or hazardous conditions.

It has three main parts; the computer cabinet, the driver's display unit and the sensors. The driver's
display unit is located in the crane driver's cabin, and its layout is shown in Figure 3.1.

MIPEG 2000 interfaces with the crane and prohibits some functions under dangerous conditions.
These crane operation relays and their functions are described in Appendix H. In addition, alarms
are given for loads exceeding the alarm limits of the safe working load.

It is recommended MIPEG 2000 to be constantly powered if possible, even during periods of time
when the crane is not in operation. No warm up time for the system is required, but the load
sensors will need 5-10 minutes after power on to achieve maximum accuracy and stability.

3.1.1 Verification of Driver's Display Unit

Before using the crane: Check that the LEDs back lighting the driver’s display panel are illuminated
to show that MIPEG 2000 is powered up.

The back lightning can be adjusted if one keep the AUX button depressed and use the TEST
button to toggle the light intensity. Release the buttons between each setting.

Press the TEST button on the Drivers Display unit and confirm:
• Operation of the analogue display of percentage safe working load by allowing the needle to
make at least one complete revolution.
• Integrity of the WARNING (Yellow) and ALARM (Red) lamps on DDU - will light continuously.
• Operation of display digits. Each segment of each window will show a figure eight with decimal
points being visible between each digit.
• If everything is satisfactory proceed, otherwise call maintenance.


Press the 'AUX' button and confirm that the hoisting line is correct for the operating
configuration of the crane.
• Confirm that the hoisting line is correct for the operating configuration of the crane. If
not, select correct hosting line by pressing the ‘AUX’ and 'FALLS' buttons.

Verify that the correct 'Crane curve' is displayed.
• If not, select correct crane curve by pressing the ‘CURVE’ button.

3.2 Information presented on the Mipeg 2000 display

STANDARD LAYOUT

The outer circular analogue scale shows percentage safe working load (%SWL).

The scale is divided into three parts, coloured:
• green - for the range 0 - 85/95% SWL,
• yellow - for the range 85/95 - 110% SWL, and
• red - for the range >110% SWL.

The top Window shows the Hook Load.
• This load will vary slightly as the amount of rope paid out varies. It also varies depending on
how the load is lifted; the smoother the lift the less the resultant fluctuation.

The left Window displays the Crane curve selected. See Appendix H for details

The right Window shows the Hook Radius.

The lower Window shows the Safe Working Load that is related to:
• operating configuration of the crane
• crane curve selected
• radius of operation.

ALTERNATIVE INFORMATION

Window Information presented with AUX button depressed

Top Boom angle
Left Not used
Right Number of hoist falls registered in MIPEG
Lower Not used


3.2.1 Push Buttons on the Display

The PUSH BUTTONS have normally the following functions:

BUTTON FUNCTION

ACK Press this button to reset the Mipeg.
Spurious error will be disabled and satisfactory operation will continue.
Pressing this button when an overload will also stop the flashing light on the display.
TEST Press this button to check the function of the needle and LCD's.
AUX Press this button to activate the alternative information on the display.
CURVE Press this button to toggle between the different crane curves (sea curves).
AUX+FALLS Pressing these buttons will change the number of falls in the system.
AUX+TEST The back lighting can be adjusted if one keep the AUX button pressed and use the
TEST button to change the light intensity. Release the buttons between each setting.





Aanderaa Data Instruments Document W-130 H00 623, Date 26.06.06, Page 10 of 34
3.2.2 Alarms


The visual and audible alarms warn of approaching danger. The WARNING (Yellow) light on Drivers
Display will flash and the buzzer inside the computer cabinet will sound when the load raised
reaches the warning limit at boom radius, crane curve and operating configuration of the crane. This
means that although a load may have been lifted at a given radius the alarm may come on as the
crane is boomed out beyond that radius and the crane capacity reduces.

To acknowledge an alarm, press the ACK button; the WARNING light will remain constantly lit until
the overload situation has decreased below the warning threshold.

The ALARM (Red) light on Drivers Display will flash when the load raised reaches the alarm. When
the ACK button is pressed; the ALARM light will remain constantly lit until the overload situation has
decreased below the alarm threshold and the WARNING light will remain constantly lit until the
overload situation has decreased below the warning threshold.



3.3 Error handling

If a detectable error occurs the MIPEG 2000 clears the operators display, and blinks an error
message 'ERxx' in top window; "xx" is two digits identifying the error. Operator should press 'ACK’ on
the Display Unit that then resets MIPEG. If it was a spurious error, satisfactory operation will
continue, otherwise call for maintenance.

See Appendix A for Mipeg 2000 error messages. The two digit error codes have an error explanation
with fault sources and references.


3.4 Tare Function


The zero setting of the hook load may vary due to length of rope payed out or weight of the slings in
use. A tare function has been implemented in the Mipeg 2000 to set the hook load read-out to zero,
prior to lifting operations.

The load read-out may be 'tared' by pressing the 'FALLS' button once. Another push on this button
will deactivate the tare function.

The tare function will only work below +/- 0.5Tonne/1000Lbs. * number of falls calculated from the
last zero calibration. The tare function will not change the zero frequency in the system.

5.2.1 Calibration of Sensors

The sensors of Mipeg 2000 are carefully checked during installation and their initial calibration
constants are semi-permanently kept in the Mipeg 2000 non-volatile memory. Their output might vary
within certain limits due to temperature drift, ageing and changes in environmental conditions. If the
variation is too large, malfunction may occur, and a calibration must be performed.

The zero point drift of the load hoist sensor(s), i.e. the deviation from zero on the display reading with
empty hook is considered to be the most important factor to monitor. It must be kept in mind that the
zero point for this sensor(s) has been defined at 45 degrees boom angle and hook at deck level.
Deviation from zero in a no load condition might be caused by different length of hoisting rope payed
out.

The calibration constants could be set up in two different ways:
1. Normally one would use calibrated test loads or dynamometers for the force sensors and crane
radius marks on the deck for the inclinometer. The frequency is read from the sensor by MIPEG,
while the actual quantity, i.e. weight or angle, is keyed in on the Display’s push buttons, as
described in paragraph 4.2.1.

2. It is also possible to enter both the frequency and the actual quantity from the Display’s push
buttons. This method is used to enter old calibration constants; giving calibration values to MIPEG
which already are recorded in the calibration protocol, Appendix F. See paragraph 4.2.1.


A compensation for variation caused by an unlinear load sensor arrangement is included in the
MIPEG system. Calibration point 2 is set by the Display Unit buttons during calibration, in the same
way as point 0 and 1. If the compensation is not required, point 2 should be set to zero.

Cal. point 0: Empty hook / No load
Cal. point 1: 100% load
Cal. point 2: 40-60% of full load

The calibration protocol given in Appendix F should be followed whenever possible. Ensure that the
calibration points of the boom angle sensor are checked, and if necessary, calibrated before any other
sensor is calibrated.











Aanderaa Data Instruments Document W-130 H00 623, Date 26.06.06, Page 17 of 34
5.2.1.1 Calibration of Boom Angle Sensor

Calibration of the boom angle sensor is recommended if the deviation between the real and the
indicated crane radius is greater than one metre.

It is recommended that two permanent calibration points are used, one at minimum radius using the
boom's end stop, the other point at approximately 30 degrees boom angle, i.e. 87% of maximum
radius. The two points must be marked on the deck as radius in metre.

As Mipeg 2000 always measures boom angle above horizontal, a calibration point at maximum
working radius is not recommended as a small inaccuracy in the radius can cause a significant
inaccuracy in the angle reading. This is because changes in boom angle in the range 0 to 20 degrees
will give a small change in radius of approximately 7%. Radius/angle relationships for calibration
purposes are given in Appendix G.

The calibration procedure for the boom angle sensor is given as follows:

• Boom out to the outer radius mark on the deck.
• With the hook on this mark, do a calibration of point zero as described in paragraph 4.2.1.
• Type in the boom angle according to the table in Appendix G, or according to earlier recorded
data in the calibration protocol.
• Boom in to the inner radius mark on the deck.
• With the hook on this mark, do a calibration of point one similar to point zero.
• Set MIPEG in Online state and check the two calibration points.
• If not ok, go back to point a) and/or d) and make adjustments of point zero and/or point one.
• If ok, go Offline and read back the new calibration data, see paragraph 4.2.
• Make a record in the calibration protocol.

5.2.1.2 Calibration of Load Hoist Sensors

Calibration of the load hoist sensor(s) is recommended if the hook load reading in a no load condition,
i.e. boom angle at 45 degrees and hook at deck level, is outside the following limits:

Whip line: +/- 1Tonne/2000Lbs. (Optional)
Main line, Plural Falls: +/- 2Tonnes/4000Lbs.

Calibration requires calibrated test loads or a calibrated dynamometer to measure the test loads.
Recommended sizes of the test loads are given in Appendix E.

The calibration procedure for the load hoist sensor(s) is as follows:

• Boom in/out to the radius that gives a boom angle given in Appendix E. See Appendix G for
radius/angel conversion.
• Lower the empty hook to just above deck level.
• Do a calibration of point zero as described in paragraph 4.2.1, function 'Calibration of Sensors'.
• Type in zero as hook load.
• Put on the test load and hoist it just above the deck level.
• Do a calibration of point one similar to point zero.
• Go back online and check the two calibration points.

Test with approximately 50% of SWL and verify if the Mipeg readout is acceptable. If not
calibration point 2 should be activated.

• Do a calibration of point two as above.
• Repeat the load test.
• If the calibration is acceptable without point 2, the frequency and value for point 2 should be set to
zero.




Aanderaa Data Instruments Document W-130 H00 623, Date 26.06.06, Page 18 of 34

5.2.2 Check and calibration of Pulley Compensation

The weight of the pulley on the load hoist sensors could cause a varying output from the load sensors
as the boom angle varies. A compensation for this is implemented on MIPEG. The parameters for this
compensation are stored as calibration parameters according to the following table.

HOIST LINE Index no. PARAMETER

Main 39 Weight parameter
40 Angle for maximum load value
Whip (Optional) 41 Weight parameter
42 Angle for maximum load value

The check of the pulley compensation is done as follows:

• Set the values in index 39-42 to zero as described below.
• Select Main hoist line first and repeat for Whip hoist line.
• With the boom at maximum radius, position the empty hook just above the deck level. Keep
this hoisting line position during this test.
• Boom in and note the displayed hook load values for every 5 Metre/15 Foot from maximum to
minimum radius.
• Check the variations of the hook load values. If the variation exceeds 0.5Tonne/1000Lbs. for
whip line and 1Tonne/2000Lbs. for main line, a calibration as described above is required.

To disable the pulley compensation, set the Parameters to zero as follows:
• Use TEST & CURVE buttons for Offline Mode.
• Press CURVE several times to go to the Index 39
• Use ACK (UP) or TEST (DOWN) to set to zero
• Press AUX to confirm.
• Press CURVE to go to Index 40, 41 and 42 and set all to zero
• Press AUX & ACK to go back Online.

The calibration of the pulley compensation is done as follows:

The compensation are set in degrees of boom angle and weight of the pulley. Theses values could
be changed from the display unit as described below.

• Use TEST & CURVE buttons for Offline Mode.

• Press CURVE several times to go to the Index 39
• Use ACK (UP) or TEST (DOWN) to adjust the weight parameter values, Index 39 for Main
(and Index 41 for Whip) according to the following formula: Adjustment = (Variation / No. of
falls) / (1 - cos(A)), where: A=Boom angle difference for variation readout
• Press AUX to confirm.

• Press CURVE to go to Index 40
• Use ACK (UP) or TEST (DOWN) to set Index 40 for Main (Index 42 for Whip) to the angle
where the highest load value was during the test.
• Press AUX to confirm.

• Use TEST & CURVE buttons to return to Offline Mode.

Repeat the test above and if necessary adjust the weight parameter values (Index 39 & 40) until
acceptable read-outs are achieved.




Aanderaa Data Instruments Document W-130 H00 623, Date 26.06.06, Page 19 of 34

5.2.3 Set-up of Angle Limits (optional)

'Mipeg 2000 will activate a buzzer and/or output relays if the boom is outside the set angle limits.
See Appendix H for project details. The parameters for these limits are stored as calibration
parameters according to the following table:

LIMIT INDEX NO. Parameter

High Angle-1 43 High limit on
44 Low limit off
Low Angle-1 45 High limit on
46 Low limit off

These limits are set in degrees of boom angle and could be set from the display unit as follows:

Set-up of the High Angle Limits:
• Use TEST & CURVE buttons for Offline Mode.
• Press CURVE several times to go to the Index 43
• Use ACK (UP) or TEST (DOWN) to select the high angle limit, 'on value'

5.2.4 Checking of Crane Operation Inhibit Relays

Checking of the crane operation inhibit relays are recommended to be performed by the crane
supervisor every third month.

To test the overload outputs, one needs a hook load sufficient to create an overload condition. In
order to use a smallest possible load, one can set MIPEG in the highest sea condition. Pick a load
size according to the crane curves. With this load available, the check are done in the following steps:

• Lift the load off the ground.
• While watching the %SWL readings on the driver's display, boom out until it reaches the warning
limit. The yellow light should be activated. Boom out until it reaches the alarm limit. The red light
and the relay output(s) should now be activated.
• Boom in and put the load down.


In addition to this, the output relays may be tested as follows:

MIPEG Nonoperational
Turn MIPEG power off. The horn and overload relays should be activated.

MIPEG Error
Simulate an error condition on MIPEG. The horn and overload relays should now be activated.


5.2.5 Checking Crane Curves

The tables of safe working loads (SWL) are permanently stored in the Mipeg 2000 memory and are
called crane curves. These are thoroughly tested during the commissioning of the crane. One should
therefore not expect any problems with the crane curves during operation, but it is recommended that
the crane supervisor checks the crane curves installed in Mipeg 2000 against the load- radius tables
available in the crane cabin twice a year.

The crane curve checking is done in the following steps:

• With no load in the hook, hoist the boom to top position.
• Set number of falls to the lowest implemented value.
• Set curve to the lowest implemented value.
• While reading radius and SWL from driver's display and comparing the readings with the
load-radius tables, lower the boom to maximum radius.
• Change the curve to next lowest value and perform point d) while hoisting the boom to top
position.
• Go through all crane curves for this number of falls, then change to next number of falls and go
through all curves, and so on until all combinations are checked.
• If possibilities for more boom lengths are implemented, change to next boom length, and repeat.
• After the checking of the crane curves is finished, set the parameter values for boom length,
number of falls and curve back to the correct values.

5.3 Unscheduled Maintenance

5.3.1 Built In Test Equipment.

The computer will start to execute once the logic supply (5V) reaches it's working level after power is
turned on to the system.

If the bus or timer checks fails, the program will signalise the fault condition and indicate an error
message on the display, see Appendix A. If all checks are passed the full system software is
initialised and starts it’s normal execution.


Different checks are continuously performed during normal system execution:

• Sensor data limit checks
• Processing data evaluation
• Processing time control ("watch dog" function)
• Evaluation of the crane's parameter set

These tasks are all contained in the software package called the Online BIT-functions. If any of the
checks fail this will lead to an immediate shut down of the system by use of the normal error exit and
indication, see paragraph 5.3.2.



5.3.2 Faults Indicated on Driver's Display

Fault recognised by the Mipeg 2000 system during run-time, will be indicated on the driver's display
by a flashing light in the WARNING and ALARM lamps and an error code in the upper window. The
horn will blow for 10 seconds and overload alarm will be activated.

When the crane driver acknowledges the fault, the fault indications on the driver's display will
disappear and the overload function will be deactivated. If, however, the fault is of a permanent
nature, the same indications will appear over again.

The fault may of course be located in the computer (and be of a major kind, ref. paragraph 5.3.1
above) or the cabling to the display may be damaged both of which will display a normal error
indication.

The error code will assist the maintenance engineer in locating the fault. Appendix A gives a list of
error codes with the probable fault source(s). When fault tracing, reference should be made into the
technical description where further details may found.




Aanderaa Data Instruments Document W-130 H00 623, Date 26.06.06, Page 22 of 34

5.3.3 Faults Not Indicated on Driver's Display


Prior to faultfinding on this level, the Mipeg 2000 system should be given a power reset by turning power
off/on. These faults normally fall into the following categories:



FAULT

"Dead system", a typical power supply problem



Faults located in the Driver's Display prohibiting
normal error indication



Erratic behaviour, where parts of the system do
not operate properly or as specified.


The system does not follow the input switches


Horn or other outputs not functioning

FAULT SOURCE :

Trace the input power through fuses on TR1. If
24V dc present, check fuse located on the Master
II card.

If the error is strictly located to the display unit,
error indication by the use of the horn will still be
maintained. If not, reference to paragraph 5.3.1
should be made.

If a malfunction is established and no fault found
in the cabling a replacement of the display or
cards may be necessary, see paragraph 6.1.

Check the cabling of the switch or eventually
replace the Master II card, see paragraph 6.1

Check the cabling of the item or eventually
replace the Master II card, see paragraph 6.1

6.2 Driver's Display Unit

6.2.1 Introduction.


The Mipeg 2000 Driver's Display is a microprocessor controlled display designed for use in harsh
environment.

Information is presented by four LCDs and by an analogue needle. All LCDs and the display facia are
backlit by LEDs. The unit incorporates two alarm indicators (LEDs). Information to be visualised on
the display is transmitted from the computer on a serial interface line.

The Display Unit consists of three major parts all housed in an enclosure supplied with a cable
entry through a gland and terminal row:

• A printed circuit board including the front plate and electronic components of the display.
• A push-button panel mounted on the front plate. This panel consists of five push-buttons.
• A connector for the PTU connection mounted on the bottom plate of the enclosure.

The back-light can be adjusted if one keep the AUX button pressed and use the TEST button to
change the light intensity. Release the buttons between each setting.

The display is mounted on a bracket fitting which enables the unit to be tilted in both the vertical and
horizontal planes. ‘Selica Gel’ should be included inside the enclosure to prevent condensation of
water on the display front glass.

It is recommended that the Driver's Display is serviced by Aanderaa Data Instruments personnel.

6.3 Sensors

MIPEG 2000 sensors are used to measure the following:

• Loads in the hoisting lines, main and whip (optional)
• Boom inclination relatively to horizontal plane

A technical description of each of the sensors is given in the following paragraphs.

6.3.1 Load Hoist Sensor


The load hoist primary sensor(s) is of S-band type. This primary sensor is MIG-welded to a
suspension part that also carries a pulley for the load sensing. The sensor measures the material
stress in the suspension part, which is proportional to the line load.

The output from the sensor is a frequency signal in the range 350-450 Hz. The resolution is typically
5Hz/tonne for one fall configuration. The sensor has two wire power/signal connection and is not
damaged by short or open circuits.

The primary sensor may be overloaded 5-10 times the nominal working range. This is far above the
yield strength of the material. The primary sensor is temperature compensated. The primary sensor is
sealed hermetically to SEN431614-k (MIL-STD-883A).

The sensor cover is sealed to protection index IP67. The sensor has been examined against the
requirements of the CENELEC standards EN50 014 and EN50 018 for flameproof enclosures and has
been approved for use in hazardous areas and to bear the marking EEx d IIB T6. The sensor cover
mounted on the sensor with four socket screws. These are tightened with a torque wrench to a torque
of 5 Nm. The flame gap area must be filled with an 'EExd' approved protection matter/grease, e.g. of
mark PBC.

To verify correct/undamaged cabling and sensor, a resistance measurement from the terminal row in
the computer cabinet can be done. Between disconnected cores, the resistance shall be
approximately 6 ohms (3 ohms in sensor plus cable). There shall be open circuits between cores and
drain, and between drain and chassis earth.

The load hoist sensor(s) has to be replaced as a complete unit.

6.3.2 Boom Angle Sensor

The Boom Angle Sensor is an inclinometer mounted in an EX d enclosure at the boom foot. The
inclinometer gives a voltage output in proportion to the boom angle (BAS+). Voltage supply to the unit
is 12Vdc (BAR+). The Inclinometer has a typical resolution of 30-35 mV/degree boom angle. The
sensor is not damaged by shorts or open circuits.

The unit is manually set to give approximately 4 Volt dc at zero degree boom angle if the unit is
installed facing towards the left hand side of the crane. At minimum radius the voltage will then be
approximately 7 Volts.

If the unit is installed facing towards the right hand side of the crane, it should manually be set to give
approximately 7 Vdc at zero degree boom angle. At minimum radius the voltage would then be
approximately 4 Volts.
