To clear the registered input/theoretical value, hold down the ZERO key for at least 3 seconds when setting the input or correction value. (All input/theatrical values are reset to "0.000".) Ensure that the input value increases regularly as the correction point number becomes larger. For example, do not set the input value of correction point 1 larger than the that of correction number 2. Attempting to do so will result in "Err2" appearing on the main display. Ensure that the input value increases or decreases regularly as the correction point number becomes larger. Failure to do so will result in "Err2" appearing on the main display and the input value unable to be set. If you proceed to the subsequent step without setting input and correction values, "Err3" appears on the main display. To assign correction values, use banks 1 and 2 and banks 3 and 4 in pairs, respectively. When you select a bank, the correction value of that bank is assigned to the X input and the correction value of the other bank in the pair is assigned to the Y input. (See the following table.)

Remote operation The functions of the RD-50R(W) can be set remotely by transmitting the specied ASCII code(s) from external equipment such as a computer.

* Instead of each ASCII code, the corresponding character code can be used. (1) Outputting the measured value RS-232C code list I Function Received code* M 4DH N 4EH O 4FH Description Transmits measured value once. Transmits measured value continuously.

Stops continuous transmission of the measured value. * Upper: Character code Lower: ASCII code When an ASCII code (character code) shown above in code list is received, the RD-50R(W) transmits the current measured value once or transmits the current and following measured values continuously, according to the received code.
If any code other than O (4FH)T (54H), U (55H), and H (48H) is received during continuous transmission of the measured value, the RD-50R(W) disregards the code. If the code other than O (4FH) is received at any time other than during continuous transmission of the measured value, the RD-50R(W) disregards the code. When the code N (continuous transmission) is received in the peak hold, bottom hold, peak-to-peak hold, or sample hold mode, the RD-50R(W) transmits the hold value once each time the synchronous signal is input (when the hold value is determined). When the code M (4DH) or N (4EH) is received with ---- shown on the display, the RD-50R(W) transmits the value the moment that a numerical value is displayed.

(2) Control input RS-232C code list II Function Received code* T 54H U 55H Q 51H V 56H W 57H Description Turns ON synchronous input. Turns OFF synchronous input. Inputs hold-reset signal. Sets auto-zero function Cancels auto-zero function * Upper: Character code Lower: ASCII code When an ASCII code (character code) shown above in code list II is received, the RD-50R(W) performs the specied operation.
The procedures for the other codes shown above are identical to that for turning ON synchronous input. Closing of the synchronous input terminal takes priority over external synchronous input. If the code T (54H) or U (55H) is transmitted by the external equipment while the synchronous input terminal is closed, the code is received but the synchronous input does not turn ON or OFF. When the code V (56H) or W (57H) for setting or cancelling the auto-zero function is received, the RD-50R(W) stores the auto-zero value (measured value that is reset to zero by setting the auto-zero function) each time the auto-zero function is invoked. This is the same as when the panel key operation lock switch is set to OFF. (The stored values are retained even when the power is turned OFF.) When the code V (56H), W (57H), or Q (51H) is received during data transmission, the RD-50R(W) stops the data transmission immediately (midway through the transmission).

When an ASCII code (character code) shown above in code list III is received, the RD-50R(W) performs the specied operation.
The procedure for selecting other functions is identical to that shown above. After receiving the rst code, the RD-50R(W) enters a wait state and waits for the reception of the second code. If the RD-50R(W) does not receive the second code within 3 seconds, it send back the code ?CR and returns to measurement status.

Changing the preset value


For the offset value, transmit a plus or minus sign and a 5-digit value. (Do not transmit a decimal point.) Ensure that the transmitted value is between -19999 and +19999. Example: To set the offset value to 1.200, transmit +01200. After receiving the code F (46H), the RD-50R(W) enters a wait state and waits for the reception of the second code. If the RD-50R(W) does not receive the second code D (44H) within 3 seconds, it sends back the code ?CR and returns to measurement status. The RD-50R(W) changes the offset value of the offset No. that has been selected when it receives the code D (44H). After receiving the code D (44H), the RD-50R(W) enters a wait state and waits for the reception of an offset value. If the RD-50R(W) does not receive any value within 3 seconds, it send back the code +99999CR and returns to measurement status.

Function Adjustment of analog output Received code* I 49H Description Changes span or shift value for analog output. * Upper: Character code Lower: ASCII code

When an ASCII code (character code) shown above in code list IV is received, the RD-50R(W) performs the specied operation.

64

For the span value, transmit a plus or minus sign and a 4-digit value. (Do not transmit a decimal point.) Ensure that the transmitted value is between -9999 and +9999. Example: To set the span value to 3.500, transmit +3500CR. For the shift value, transmit a plus or minus sign and a 5-digit value. (Do not transmit a decimal point.) Ensure that the transmitted value is between -19999 and +19999. Example: To set the shift value to -4.500, transmit -04500CR. If the RD-50R(W) does not receive any value within 3 seconds after it enters a wait state to wait for the reception of a span or shift value, it sends back the code +99999CR and returns to measurement status.

When an ASCII code (character code) shown above in code list IV is received the RD-50R(W) performs the specied operation.
For the tolerance limit, transmit a plus or minus sign and a 5-digit value. (Do not transmit a decimal point.) Ensure that the transmitted value is between -19999 and +39999. Example: To set the tolerance limit to 0.010, transmit +00010CR. The RD-50R(W) changes the tolerance limits of the tolerance No. that has been selected when it receives the code D (44H).

65

After receiving the code S (53H), the RD-50R(W) enters a wait state and waits for the reception of the second code D (44H). If the RD-50R(W) does not receive the code within 3 seconds, it sends back the code ?CR and returns to measurement status.

Changing the hysteresis margin


For the hysteresis margin, transmit a 3-digit value. Ensure that the transmitted value is between 0 and 100. Example: To set the hysteresis margin to 5, transmit 005CR. Reading out the tolerance limits

Exits from MDL function setting mode. * Upper: Character code Lower: ASCII code When an ASCII code (character code) shown above in code list IV is received, the RD-50R(W) performs the specied operation.
If the bank No. has been set to 0 and a second code of P, D, or R is received, the RD-50R(W) sends back the code ?CR. As for the MDL function, the RD-50R(W) registers the bank No., the number of correction points, and the correction values that have been set when it receives a second code S (53H). Even if the second code D (44H) is received followed by the correction value, the RD50R(W) does not register the correction value until it receives the code S (53H). When the second code Q (51H) is received, the RD-50R(W) only exits from the MDL function setting mode, and does not register the set values. After receiving the rst code L (4CH), the RD-50R(W) enters a wait state and waits for the reception of the second code. If the RD-50R(W) does not receive the second code within 3 seconds, it transmits the code ?CR every 3 seconds until it receives the code Q.

Description

Changing the number of correction points


After receiving the code B (42H) or P (50H), the RD-50R(W) enters a wait state and waits for the reception of the next code. If the RD-50R(W) does not receive a bank No. or the number of correction points within 3 seconds, it sends back the code ?CR and enters a wait state to wait for further receptions. Entering the correction value For the input value or the correction value, transmit a plus or minus sign and a 5-digit value. (Do not transmit a decimal point.) Ensure that the input value and the correction value is between -19999 and +19999. Example: When the input value is -3.500, transmit -03500CR. After receiving the code D (44H), the RD-50R(W) enters a wait state and waits for the reception of a numerical value. If the RD-50R(W) does not receive any numerical value within 3 seconds, it sends back the code +99999CR and enters a wait state to wait for further receptions. Ensure that the input value increases regularly as the correction point No. becomes larger and that the correction value increases or decreases or decreases regularly as the correction point No. becomes larger.

Outputting the correction value


The input value and the correction value, respectively, are output as a plus or minus sign and a 5-digit value. (The decimal point is not output and transmitted.) Example: When the displayed value (correction value) is -1.250, -01250CR is output and transmitted. After receiving the code R (52H), the RD-50R(W) enters a wait state and waits for the reception of the next code. If the RD-50R(W) does not receive any correction point No. within 3 seconds, it sends back the code +99999CR and enters a wait state to wait for further receptions.

Registering the settings


If the input value does not increases regularly as the correction point No. becomes larger or the correction value does not increase or decrease regularly as the correction point No. becomes larger, the RD-50R(W) sends back ERRORCR.

Error messages
The RD displays an error message to indicate that an error has occurred. Refer to the following table and take the appropriate countermeasures.

Display

Cause The tolerance limits are not properly set. (Requirements: HH HI LO L) The span value for analog voltage output is set to 0.000. In the MDL setting mode, the input value or correction value is set improperly. The input value must increase regularly as the correction point No. becomes larger. Also the theoretical (correction)value must increase or decrease regularly as the correction point No. becomes larger.

Remedy Press the key to cancel the error message, and set the tolerance limits properly. Press the key to cancel the error message, and set the tolerance limits properly.

Err0 Err1

Err2

Press the key to cancel the error message, and set the input value or correction value properly.

Err3 FFFF or -FFFF

In the MDL setting mode, the next key to cancel the setting is attempted though an input Press the value r correction value has not been error message, and perform setting in the proper order. set. The input value exceeds the specied range. Alternatively, the displayed value exceeds the specied range since the input value is excessively scaled up/down by improper setting of the shift or span value. The rst averaging of measurements is not complete. Alternatively, although the hold mode has been set, no synchronous signal is input.

Troubleshooting guide
Problem Check item Explanation/Remedy In the P-P mode, the display shows the difference between the highest and lowest values measured during the specied period. Accordingly, if the input value does not change, the display shows "0000". In the comparison mode, the display shows the difference between the current input value and the average of previous input values. Accordingly, if the input value does not change, the display shows "0000". Reference page

Check whether the input value changes during sampling in the P-P mode. The displayed value is "0000" and does not change. Check whether the input value changes in the comparison mode.

Hints on correct use


1. Do not install the RD in the following places: Places directly exposed to sunlight. Places where the temperature drops below 0C or exceeds 50C. Places where the relative humidity drops below 35% or exceeds 85%. Places where temperature uctuations may cause condensation. Places where the RD may be exposed to corrosive or ammable gas. Places exposed to airborne dust or corrosive substances such as salt, or metal particles. Places where the RD may be subjected to vibration or impact. Places where water, oil, or chemicals may splash the RD. Places where the RD may be affected by noise interference. 2. Connecting analog output equipment To prevent the RD from malfunctioning due to noise interference, take the following countermeasures. Countermeasures 1)Use a 1-core shielded cable for the output line. Where possible, do not use a cable longer than 10 m. If a cable longer than 10 m is required, convert the voltage signal into a current signal.
Displacement sensor, etc. 1-core shielded cable

0V

2)Keep the wiring and connection cables away from high-voltage lines or power lines; otherwise noise may cause the RD to malfunction. Be sure to keep the wiring separate. 3)When using only one of two sets of input terminals (5 and 6, 7 and 8), connect the unused terminals. 3. Power supply When using a commercially available switching regulator, be sure to correctly ground the chassis ground or earth ground terminal. 4. Fastening terminal screws Be sure to completely fasten the terminal screws to prevent the RD from malfunctioning. 5. Warming up After supplying power, leave the RD for 10 minutes prior to starting to use it. The internal circuit does not stabilize immediately after the power is supplied, sometimes causing measured values to uctuate.
