  • Page 10: Site Considerations

    Chapter 1. Installation 1.3 Site Considerations Because the relative location of the flowcell and the electronics enclosure is important, use the guidelines in this section to plan the XMT868i installation. Figure 1 below shows a typical installation. Figure 1: A Typical Model XMT868i System 1.3.1 Electronics Enclosure Location The standard Model XMT868i electronics enclosure is a powder-coated, cast-aluminum, Type-7/4X explosion-proof enclosure, and an optional stainless-steel enclosure is available.
  • Page 11: Transducer Location

    Locate the electronics enclosure as close as possible to the flowcell/transducers, preferably directly on the flowcell. However, GE can supply transducer cables up to 1,000 ft (300 m) in length for remote location of the electronics enclosure. If longer cables are required, consult the factory for assistance.
  • Page 12: Installing Temperature Transmitters

    Chapter 1. Installation 1.5 Installing Temperature Transmitters Optional temperature transmitters may be installed as part of the flowcell, near the ultrasonic transducer ports. Be sure to observe the siting requirements given earlier in this chapter. These transmitters should send a 0/4-20 mA signal to the Model XMT868i.

    Chapter 1. Installation 1.6 Mounting the XMT868i Electronics Enclosure The standard model XMT868i electronics package is housed in a Type-4X weather-resistant enclosure suitable for indoor or outdoor use. Refer to Figure 8 on page 21 for the mounting dimensions and the weight of this enclosure. The Model XMT868i electronics enclosure is fitted with a mounting boss that has a single 3/4”...

    Chapter 1. Installation Making Electrical Connections (cont.) Power Connections Option Card Connections Set Screw Slots Label Inside View Outside View Figure 3: Rear Cover with Connection Labels 1.7.1 Wiring the Line Power The Model XMT868i may be ordered for operation with power inputs of 100-120 VAC, 220-240 VAC, or 12-28 VDC. The label on the side of the electronics enclosure lists the meter’s required line voltage and power rating.
  • Page 15 Chapter 1. Installation 1.7.1 Wiring the Line Power (cont.) 1. Prepare the line power leads by trimming the line and neutral AC power leads (or the positive and negative DC power leads) to a length 0.5 in. (1 cm) shorter than the ground lead. This ensures that the ground lead is the last to detach if the power cable is forcibly disconnected from the meter.
  • Page 16: Wiring Transducers

    Chapter 1. Installation 1.7.2 Wiring Transducers Before wiring the XMT868i transducers, complete the following steps: 1. Disconnect the main power from the electronics enclosure. 2. Remove the rear cover and install all required cable clamps. WARNING! Before connecting the transducers, take them to a safe area and discharge any static buildup by shorting the center conductor of the transducer cables to the metal shield on the cable connector.
  • Page 17: Wiring Standard 0/4-20 Ma Analog Outputs

    The Model XMT868i flow transmitter is equipped with a built-in serial communications port. The standard port is an RS232 interface, but an optional RS485 interface is available upon request. Proceed to the appropriate sub-section for wiring instructions. For more information on serial communications refer to the EIA-RS Serial Communications manual (GE document 916-054). DigitalFlow™ XMT868i Startup Guide...
  • Page 18 Note: Signal names that imply direction (e.g., transmit and receive) are named from the point of view of the DTE device (the GE meter is usually considered the DTE device). When the RS232 standard is strictly followed, these signals are labeled with the same name and pin # on the DCE device side as well. Unfortunately, the convention is not followed because the DTE and DCE side get confused.
  • Page 19 Chapter 1. Installation 1.7.4b Wiring the RS485 Interface Use the optional RS485 serial port to network multiple XMT868i flow transmitters to a single computer terminal. As an option, the standard RS232 port on the XMT868i may be configured as a two-wire, half-duplex RS485 interface. The XMT868i must be configured at the factory for RS485 operation.

  • Page 21 Chapter 1. Installation 1.7.5b Wiring an Alarms Option Card Each alarms option card includes two or four general-purpose Form C relays (designated as A, B, C and D). The maximum electrical ratings for the relays are listed in Chapter 4, Specifications. Each of the alarm relays can be wired as either Normally Open (NO) or Normally Closed (NC).
  • Page 22 Chapter 1. Installation 1.7.5c Wiring a 0/4-20 mA Analog Inputs Option Card This option card includes two or four isolated 0/4-20 mA analog inputs (designated as A, B, C and D), each of which includes a 24 VDC power supply for loop-powered transmitters. Either input may be used to process the temperature signal, while the other input is used to process the pressure signal.

Installation 1.7.5d Wiring a Totalizer and Frequency Output Option Card Each totalizer and frequency output option card provides two or four outputs (designated as , and A, B, C Wire this option card in accordance with the connections shown on the label in the rear cover (see Figure 3 on page 6 and Figure 11 on page 24).
  • Page 24 Chapter 1. Installation 1.7.5e Wiring an RTD Inputs Option Card The Model XMT868i RTD (Resistance Temperature Device) inputs option card provides two direct RTD inputs (designated as A and B). Each RTD input requires three wires, and should be connected as shown on the label in the rear cover (see Figure 3 on page 6 and Figure 11 on page 24).
  • Page 25 Slot 2. The RS485 standard allows up to 32 nodes (drivers and receivers) on one multi-drop network, at distances up to 4,000 ft (1,200 m). GE recommends using 24-gauge (24 AWG) twisted-pair wire with a characteristic impedance of 120 ohms and 120-ohm termination at each end of the communications line.
  • Page 26 Chapter 1. Installation 1.7.5i Wiring the MODBUS/TCP Interface Customers can also use a modified XMT868i that provides a MODBUS/TCP interface to communicate to an internal network. An optional MODBUS/TCP card with a unique MAC (IP) address (installed only in slot 2) includes an RJ45 connector.
  • Page 27 Chapter 1. Installation 1.7.5k Wiring the Foundation Fieldbus Interface To connect the Foundation Fieldbus interface to the XMT868i, make the network connections at J8, pins 1 and 2, as shown in drawing Y of Figure 12 on page 25. As an option, you can connect a shield to J8 pin 3, depending on the network wiring.
