1.1

Receiving and Handling Instructions


Receiving Inspecting
The Bently Nevada 3500 Galvanic Isolator Interface module is shipped with Vibration Transducer Interface modules installed on the backplane and in the enclosure or as separate units depending on ordering information. Carefully remove all equipment from the shipping containers and inspect the equipment for shipping damage. If damage is apparent, file a claim with the carrier and submit a copy to Bently Nevada Corporation. Include part numbers and serial numbers on all correspondence. If no damage is apparent and the equipment is not going to be used immediately, return the equipment to the shipping containers and reseal until ready for use.

1.2

Handling and Storage Considerations


Store the 3500 Galvanic Isolator Interface module and any other Bently Nevada equipment in an environment free from potentially damaging conditions such as high temperature, excessive humidity, or a corrosive atmosphere. Circuit boards contain devices that are susceptible to damage when exposed to electrostatic discharge. Damage caused by obvious mishandling of the board will void the warranty. To avoid damage, observe the following precautions in the order given.
!

Do not discharge static electricity onto the circuit board. Avoid tools or procedures that would subject the circuit board to static damage. Some possible causes include ungrounded soldering irons, nonconductive plastics and similar materials. Personnel must be grounded with a suitable grounding strap (such as 3M Velostat No. 2060) before handling or maintaining a printed circuit board. Transport and store circuit boards in electrically conductive bags or foil.

Use extra caution during dry weather. Relative humidity less than 30% tends to multiply the accumulation of static charges on a surface.

1.3

General Information
This section describes the Bently Nevada 3500 Galvanic Isolator Interface system and lists the Bently Nevada 3500 Monitors and transducer systems with which it is designed to be used. A Vibration Transducer Interface works in an intrinsically safe system as a galvanic isolator. This isolator acts as an interface between a transducer installed in a hazardous environment and a 3500 monitoring system installed in a safe environment. Although a galvanic isolator and a zener barrier are both intrinsically safe interfaces that provide the same level of protection, they work differently. A zener barrier works by shunting excess current and voltage to ground. A galvanic isolator provides intrinsic safety by isolating power, ground, and signal in the hazardous area from the safe area. This isolation removes the need to provide an earth ground in the hazardous environment. With the exception of the Aeroderivative Interface Module, all transducers can "float" in the hazardous environment. A drawback to using galvanic isolation instead of zener barriers is that galvanic isolation introduces a small amount of noise and signal inaccuracy to the transducer output as listed in the data sheet at the end of this manual. This error can cause some concern in certain applications as described in the section Checking the Accuracy of the Output Signal, page 5. The Bently Nevada 3500 Galvanic Isolator Interface can receive inputs from the following approved Bently Nevada transducers: 3300 XL Proximitor Transducer 3300 5 mm/8 mm Proximitor Transducer 7200 5 mm/8 mm Proximitor Transducer Accelerometer Interface Module (part number 23733-03) Aeroderivative Interface Module (part number 86517) (Velocity Only) 3300 REBAM MicroPROX Transducer 7200 REBAM MicroPROX Transducer

The 3500 Galvanic Isolator Interface system can be used in thrust, DC, Keyphasor and vibration systems. The following 3500 monitors have been tested with the 3500 Galvanic Isolator Interface system: 3500/25 Keyphasor Monitor 3500/40 Proximitor Monitor 3500/42 Proximitor/Seismic Monitor 3500/44 Aeroderivative Monitor 3500/50 Tachometer Monitor

Note: The I/O modules of the above 3500 monitors must be External Terminations.

Installing the Hardware


This section shows how to install the parts of the 3500 Galvanic Interface onto the backplane and then how to mount the backplane on a surface or in an enclosure. The next section, Wiring the Hardware, shows how to connect the installed interface to vibration transducers, monitors, and power supplies.

3.1

Before You Begin


Before you install the 3500 Galvanic Isolator Interface, use the following two checklists to verify that the installation will meet approval requirements and to check the accuracy of the output signal.

3.1.1

Verifying that the Installation will Meet Approval Requirements


Make sure all installation work is carried out in accordance with all relevant local standards, codes of practice, and site regulations. Check that the hazardous-area equipment complies with the descriptive system document. If you cannot verify that the system meets approval requirements, refer to the certificate for clarification of any aspects of intrinsic safety or contact Bently Nevada or your local Bently Nevada representative for assistance. Refer to the General Information section for appropriate applications.

3.1.2

Checking the Accuracy of the Output Signal


Before installing a 3500 Galvanic Isolator Interface system, use the information in Section 3.1.2.1., Section 3.1.2.2. and the Specifications, to evaluate how the Vibration Transducer Interface module will affect your instruments.

Note:
The 3500 Galvanic Isolator Interface can introduce additional ac and dc errors.

3.2.4

Installing the Earth Rail


An earth rail provides a termination point for shield and spare wires. It also provides a grounding location for transducers if local wiring codes require an earth ground. Reference local wiring codes for any wiring restrictions. The 3500 Galvanic Isolator Interface system does not require a high integrity earth and the transducers can be left floating or be earthed at any one point. Refer to the 3500 Field Wiring Package (130432-01). Do not wire transducer common to earth. A "floating" system is recommended, except for the Aeroderivative Interface Module (part number 86517) which requires a grounded system for noise immunity.

Screw Clamp Connector Vibration Transducer Interface module

WARNING
An explosion may occur if the screw clamp connector touches an unprotected safe-area component.

If you install or remove the screw clamp connector while power is on, support the connector so that it cannot touch the backplane or the safe-area circuits. Contact between the screw clamp connector and the backplane may bypass the essential segregation between safe-area and hazardous-area circuits.

Section 4 Wiring the Hardware

4.5

Connecting Cable Assemblies to Backplanes


The safe area signals between the backplane and the 3500 Monitoring System are connected using cable assemblies. The cable assembly type is determined by the 3500 Monitor (3500/25, 3500/40, 3500/42, 3500/44 or 3500/50) and backplane (Vibration or Keyphasor) combination. The following table shows the 3500 Monitor, Cable, Backplane and Transducer combinations that can be used with the 3500 Galvanic Isolator Interface.

The 3500 Field Wiring Package shows how to connect the 3500 Monitors to the backplanes and how to identify the Vibration Transducer Interfaces to which the safe area and hazardous area field wiring is attached. The cable assemblies have different connector types at each end, namely, 90-deg cable entry and 45 deg cable entry. The 90 deg cable entry connector connects to the 3500 Monitor and the 45 deg cable entry to the backplane. A 45-deg cable entry is used to ensure that there is sufficient spacing between hazardous and safe area field wiring and enable easier installation. The cable assemblies, method of installation and cable pin out diagrams are shown below.

Maintenance and Troubleshooting


Maintenance
We recommend that you use the following checklist to check the condition of the 3500 Galvanic Isolator Interface system installation at least once every two years. Use this list more frequently if the installation is in a particularly harsh environment. " Modules are labeled properly and in the correct position according to the relevant documentation. " Modules and hazardous-area connectors are correctly and legibly tagged, the connectors are plugged into the matching modules, and the tag details given comply with the relevant documentation. " Modules and hazardous-area connectors are securely plugged into their matching sockets. " All connections to the backplane and to the hazardous-area connectors are properly made. " Inspect connecting cables to backplanes and to hazardous-area connectors for the following:

Specified type and rating Correctly routed and segregated (particularly in the Bently Nevada enclosures). Non-Intrinsically Safe and Intrinsically Safe wiring MUST be separated by 50 mm minimum. Reference local wiring codes. Not frayed or otherwise damaged. Cable shields and transducers (when applicable) are properly earthed. One backplane power LED is on for each installed power supply. The power LEDs on all modules are on.

Troubleshooting
When troubleshooting, carry out the following steps as far as is necessary:

1. Check that at least one of the backplane power supply status LEDs are ON. One LED will be on for each installed power supply. 2. If both power LEDs are OFF, check the power supply fuse. Change it if necessary. The fuse should be a 1 amp, medium time-lag fuse.

2
3. Check that the power LED on all modules are ON. 4. Exchange potentially faulty modules with working units by using the installation instructions in "Installing the Hardware".

Bench Testing Isolators


Test potentially faulty modules in workshop conditions using the installation instructions in "Installing the Hardware". Test the suspected module using the following procedure: 1. Connect a power supply to a spare backplane. 2. Plug the suspect module into any position on the backplane. 3. Wire the module as shown. = 1000 = Digital Voltage Meter Vin Vo Vs + Vs = Function Generator = Digital Voltage Meter = +20 to +35 Vdc = Common

R1 V1

4. Set the input to the module to the following: Vin = 0.707 Vrms @ 100 Hz -6.0 Vdc offset 5. Verify that the output is as follows: V1 ! -19.0 Vdc

Vo = 0.707!0.035 Vrms @ 100 Hz -5.9 to -6.1 Vdc
