FEC920: USER GUIDE 1 SAFETY NOTES Warning: Any interruption of the protective conductor inside or outside the apparatus, or disconnection of the protective earth terminal is likely to make the apparatus dangerous under some fault conditions. Intentional interruption is prohibited.
FEC920: USER GUIDE This instrument is intended for industrial temperature and process control applications within the requirements of the European directives on safety and EMC. Installation may be carried out only by qualified personnel. To prevent hands or metal tools coming into contact with parts that are electrically live the instrument must be installed in an enclosure.
FEC920: USER GUIDE USB DEVICE PRECAUTIONS Note: The use of U3 USB Flash drives is not recommended. Precautions against electrostatic discharge should be taken when the instrument terminals are being accessed. The USB and Ethernet connections are particularly vulnerable. Ideally, the USB device should be plugged directly into the instrument, as the use of extension leads may compromise the instrument’s ESD compliance.
FEC920: USER GUIDE 2 CYBERSECURITY WHAT’S IN THIS CHAPTER This chapter outlines some good practice approaches to cybersecurity as they relate to use of the FEC920 instrument, and draws attention to several FEC920 features that could assist in implementing robust cybersecurity.
MEMORY INTEGRITY When a FEC920 device powers up, it automatically performs an integrity check on the contents of its internal non-volatile memory devices. Additional periodic integrity checks are performed during normal runtime and when non-volatile data is being written.
2.7.2 FTP Server Up to two external FTP servers can be configured. The FEC920 will then connect to these servers as an FTP client and push archive files to the servers. Threat mitigation as for FTP Client.
Firewall to block UDP port 123. 2.7.6 ModBus The FEC920 supports ModBus, which can be configured to act as Master via TCP and Slave via serial or TCP. To mitigate threats: Physically protect access to subnet (or serial cabling) in use.
FEC920: USER GUIDE 3 INTRODUCTION This document describes the installation, operation and configuration of a paperless graphic recorder/ controller. The instrument comes, as standard, with four input channels and is equipped for secure archiving via FTP transfer and/or to USB memory stick.
FEC920: USER GUIDE 4 INSTALLATION Caution: Before installation, ensure that the specified instrument supply voltage matches the facility supply. 4.1 MECHANICAL INSTALLATION Figure 1 gives installation details. 4.1.1 Installation Procedure If it is not already in place, fit the IP65 sealing gasket behind the front bezel of the instrument.
FEC920: USER GUIDE 4.1.3 Removing the Instrument from its Sleeve The instrument is designed to be removed from its sleeve from the front panel. However, if a USB memory stick or the Ethernet cable is fitted then this must be removed first.

FEC920: USER GUIDE 5.4.8 EtherNet/IP display mode This display mode appears only if enabled in Instrument.Display configuration (Section 6.1.3) and is used to display the input and output parameters assigned to the Client and Server input and output tables. Parameters which have been configured with descriptors are identified by these descriptors instead of their ‘opc’...
Entering the destination parameter into the equivalent location in the server input table. The example in Figure 28 shows this (using the FEC920 as the client) in graphical form, using just a few parameters (there can be up to 50 in each table).
FEC920: USER GUIDE Adding parameters to the input and output tables can be achieved only through the proprietary software package ‘iTools’, running on a PC. It cannot be configured through the user interface. The following description assumes that the user is familiar with ‘iTools’. Section 9 of this manual shows how to set up an iTools link to the unit and the iTools on-line help system and its PDF version (HA028838) should be referred-to as necessary.
In this example a read request is configured to determine the Group recording status of a FEC920 server, and it can be seen from the table in Section 7.3 on page 132 that the decimal Modbus address for this parameter is 4150 and the data type is int16.
FEC920: USER GUIDE When wired to parameters which have EtherNet/IP Client descriptors, the descriptor names appear instead of the ‘opc’ names (e.g. Loop.1.Setpoint.SP1) shown here. Virtual Channel.1.Main.Input1 11.1 Virtual Channel.2.Main.Input1 -19.1 Loop.1.Setpoint.SP1 23.0 Loop.1.Setpoint.SP2 132.0 Loop.2.Setpoint.SP1 246.2 Loop.1.Setpoint.SP2 111.11 Tags page appears if ‘Mode’ is set to ‘Client (Tags)’...
Note: 2. Input data direction is always to the FEC920: in server mode input data is written to the FEC920 from the client in client mode, input data is read by the FEC920 from the server device. Note: 3. Output data direction is always from the FEC920: in server mode output data is written to the client from the FEC920.
FEC920: USER GUIDE TREND HISTORY Entered from the top level menu (Section 5.1), this allows vertical and horizontal traces to be reviewed for Trend group channels. The amount of data displayed in one screen depends on the ‘Zoom In/Out’ setting in the History menu (Section 5.5.2) and on the recording interval selected in Group Recording configuration (Section 6.3.2).

The client identifier is a unique id used by DHCP servers that implement option 61. Each FEC920 product will have a unique ID built up from its MAC address. If the DHCP server is configured to use option 61, then it will use this ID instead of the MAC address to assign a dynamic IP address.
Note: For remote archiving, the host computer must be set up to respond to ‘pings’. This is because the FEC920 pings the host whilst establishing connection, and if it does not receive a response, the archive attempt fails.
FEC920: USER GUIDE Rate Allows the user to specify the frequency at which the contents of the Flash memory are archived to the USB port or, via FTP, to a PC. Scrollable settings are: None: Automatic archiving is disabled. Any archiving must be initiated by the user using Demand Archiving, as described in Section 5.3.7.

FEC920: USER GUIDE Channels one to four in the configuration relate to An In 1 (terminals 1I, 1+ and 1-) to An In 4 (terminals 4I, 4+ and 4-) respectively - see Figure 4, in Section “INSTALLATION” on page 9.
FEC920: USER GUIDE Status Read-only. Shows the channel status as one of: ‘Good’, ‘Channel Off’, ‘Over range’, ‘Under range’, ‘HW error’, ‘Ranging’, ‘HW (capability) exceeded’. Read-only. For dual inputs only, displays the current value of the secondary input. Status2 Read-only. For dual inputs only, shows the secondary input status (as ‘Status’ above).
FEC920: USER GUIDE For mA inputs this offset is removed automatically, without user intervention. For mV inputs the offset depends on the value of the voltage source impedance and is equal to 199.9 V/ . This offset can be compensated for either by using this Offset2 parameter, or by carrying out the ‘Input Adjust’...
FEC920: USER GUIDE Note: Break High impedance values would be used typically for sensors which have a high nominal impedance when working normally. Input sensor break detection is not supported for secondary inputs. The internal circuit acts as a ‘pull up’ on the secondary input which therefore saturates high in the event of a sensor break.
FEC920: USER GUIDE SPAN EXAMPLE In an input range of 0 to 600 degrees C, the temperature range between 500 and 600 degrees is of most interest. In such a case, Span Low is set to 500 and Span High to 600 so that the instrument trends only the required part of the temperature range, effectively magnifying the area of interest.
FEC920: USER GUIDE ROC’ (rate-of-change: rising), ‘Fall ROC’ (rate-of-change: falling), ‘Digital High’, ‘Digital Low’. See ‘Alarm types’, below, for definitions. Status Read only. This shows that the alarm is Off, Active, SafeNotAcked or ActiveNotAcked. For ‘Auto’ and ‘Manual’ alarms only, ‘SafeNotAcked’ means that the alarm trigger source has returned to a non-alarm state, but the alarm is still active because it has not been acknowledged.
FEC920: USER GUIDE Active Read-only. Shows the status of the alarm as ‘Yes’ if it is active, or No, if inactive. The active/inactive state depends on the Latch type (above) and acknowledgment status of the alarm. Always shows ‘No’ if the alarm is inhibited (below).
FEC920: USER GUIDE 6.4.4 Alarm 2 menu As above for Alarm 1 menu. Note: The parameters ‘Acknowledge’, ‘Active’, ‘Inactive’, ‘N(ot) Acknowledged’ and, ‘Acknowledgement’ can all be ‘wired’ to other parameters, so, for example, a relay can be made to operate whilst the alarm is inactive or whilst it is active or on acknowledgement etc.

FEC920: USER GUIDE VIRTUAL CHANNEL CONFIGURATION This allows the configuration of maths channels, totalizers and counters. The configuration is divided into the following areas: ‘Main’, ‘Trend’, ‘Alarm 1*’ and ‘Alarm 2*’. Items appearing in the ‘Trend’, Alarm 1’ and ‘Alarm 2’...
FEC920: USER GUIDE MATHS FUNCTIONS Out = -9999; status = Off Out = Input1 + Input2 Subtract Out = Input1 - Input2 Multiply Out = Input1 x Input2 Divide Out = Input1 ¸ Input2. If Input2 = 0, Out = -9999; Status = ‘Bad’.
The totalizer block in the FEC920 is intended to automate this process. It uses the built-in sampling rate of the FEC920 (125mSec) as the sampling period for the totalization process. In addition, it provides two separate parameters which can be used to adjust the results of the totalization process so that the output from the block is scaled in the correct units.
FEC920: USER GUIDE Figure 76 shows a typical totalizer configuration page. Virtual Channel.1.Main Descriptor VirtualChan1 Type Totaliser Operation 180.3625 units Totalizer Status Good Input 1 Rollover Resolution 1 to 10 Units units Units Scaler Counter 1 Low Cut Off Input 1...

FEC920: USER GUIDE Disable Allows the user temporarily to suspend totalizing action. The totalizer is toggled between being enabled (cross symbol) and disabled (tick symbol) by means of the scroll key. The output retains the pre-disabled value until the totalizer is re-enabled, when it resumes from that value, or until the value is changed using the Preset parameter mentioned above.
FEC920: USER GUIDE 6.5.3 Wiring Example using a counter in combination with a totalizer Figure 77 shows how a counter and totalizer can be linked in a real application using the internal (soft) wiring in iTools. See also Section 9.3.

When Input 2 goes Low, the output adopts the instantaneous value of Input 1 until Input 2 goes High again. When Input 2 goes high the output jumps to the current value of Input 1 and tracks it until Input 2 goes low.
FEC920: USER GUIDE 6.16.2 Timer modes ON PULSE Output goes ‘on’ as soon as the trigger input goes active, and remains on until the time period has elapsed. If the timer is re-triggered during the timing period, the timer restarts.
FEC920: USER GUIDE ONE SHOT If the trigger input is active, countdown timing is initiated as soon as the entered time value is confirmed (scroll key). The entered time decrements to zero, and must be re-entered by the user before any further timer function can be initiated.
