    1. INTRODUCTION Thank you for purchasing the AD-4530 Digital Indicator. This manual describes how the AD-4530 works and how to get the most out of it in terms of performance. Please read this manual completely before using the AD-4530. 1.1. Features The AD-4530 has the following features.
  • Page 6: Before Use

    When connecting long cables to the sensors, keep the cables away from power cables and other sources of electrical noise. Do not connect the AD-4530 to the power supply before installation is completed. The AD-4530 has no switch to disconnect the power supply.
  • Page 7 To avoid electrical shock, do not touch the internal part of the instrument within ten seconds after switching the power off. Be sure to fasten all the screws completely. Loose screws may come off during operation and a short circuit may occur or measurement errors may occur due to noise.

    Upper limit and lower limit values can be negative. For example, if the upper limit value is -1000 and the lower limit value is -2000, HI is output for the measured value of -500 and LO is output for the measured value of -2500.

    OK output LO output 12.4. Hysteresis A hysteresis width and time is provided for the output relay on/off timing to prevent the output terminals from chattering. When the measured value exceeds the set value, the relay is turned on. If the measured value falls below the set value and it is further reduced by the hysteresis width, or if the hysteresis time has elapsed, the relay is turned off.
