Thank you for choosing a recorder SIEMENS Thank you for purchasing the newest in our range of electronic data recording for SIEMENS SIREC D Advanced Graphic Recorders. The SIREC D300, SIREC D400 and SIREC D200 paperless chart recorders are the lat- est development of the solid-state replacement for traditional paper recorders.
Use” and UL 61010C-1 and CSA 22.2-1010.1, as options. If the equipment is used in a manner not specified, the protection provided by the equipment may be impaired. The SIEMENS range of instruments is compliant to the requirements for Class 1, Div.2 Haz- ardous (Classified) Locations.
Protocols used in this manual Protocols used in this manual Safety and Symbol Identification Table 1.3 : Symbol Description WARNING The WARNING symbol indicates a potentially hazardous situation, which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious injury. CAUTION This CAUTION symbol may indicates a potential- ly hazardous situation, which, if not avoided, may result in property damage.
Warnings and Safety Precautions 3. Repair is not to be attempted by a customer. Any adjustment or maintenance expected of an operator as part of the normal operation of the product is referred to as Opera- tional Maintenance. Any maintenance not expected of the operator is referred to as Corrective Maintenance and is to be carried out only by authorized service personnel or returned to an authorized repair centre.
Contents Check that the contents and accessories are correct against the order or Model Selection Guide using the model number on the recorder. Contact SIEMENS immediately should there be any query. The contents are based on Unit Model Number ordered and will vary from unit to unit. The following list is provided as a general guide and not specific to any single unit.
Mechanical Installation NOTICE The SIREC D200 recorder is an Emmisions Class A product. In a domestic environ- ment this product may cause radio interference in which case the user may be required to take adequate measures.

To enter a script for a Pen, ensure that “Maths Type” in the Pen Menu is set to Scripting. Example 1 4 flow meters are fed into the recorder to trend, totalise and record daily flow. The application requires that the user must know and record which flow meter is outputting the highest flow at any particular time.

Appendix C: Thermocouple Connections How Thermocouples work Thermocouples produce a voltage dependant upon the temperature gradient between the hot and cold junctions. The hot junction is the measuring junction of the thermocouple, the cold junction is the point where the thermocouple wires are connected, usually the connec- tion block on the back of the recorder.
Thermocouple CJC Compensation Thermocouple CJC Compensation The different methods for connecting thermocouples according to the type of reference are shown below.

Appendix E: Ethernet Ethernet Ethernet is a local area network (LAN) technology that transmits information between com- puters and other devices, at speeds of 10 or 100 million bits per second (Mbps). Each Ether- net equipped device operates independently of all other devices on the network. All devices attached to an Ethernet network are connected to a shared signalling system.
Email General operation of the e-mail system The recorder sends messages for distribution by an e-mail server. The e-mail server is located by its IP address or it’s name as set-up in the communications set-up options. When the recorder sends an e-mail message, it locates the e-mail server and uses SMTP (Simple Message Transfer Protocol) to send the message to the e-mail server.
Appendix F: Fuzzy Logging What is Fuzzy Logging? is a real time Data Compression technique. Patent no. US 6,405,155 B2, Fuzzy Logging developed as an alternative to the more standard methods of recording data. Paperless Recorders are primarily used for exception recording. They spend most of their life trending and recording straight lines.
Time Input Signal Continuously Sampled data: Fuzzy Logged data: 12 points only! Changing ‘slope’ requires more data points to be logged, to capture the shape correctly. Diagram 1 Points marked: are NOT logged, as they lie on an ‘imaginary’ straight line between points marked: The graph of the Fuzzy Logged data, looks identical to the graph of the sampled data, but has taken less than half the points to build it.
What about slowly drifting inputs? Again – No Problem. The algorithm is processed in ‘Real Time’, i.e. as the reading is taken. As it already knows the previous logged readings it can calculate where the next point should be (assuming it’s on a straight line) – if the measured value does not equal the pre- dicted value, the point is logged as it no longer forms part of the straight line.
It provides an excellent illustration of how less data points can be used to construct an iden- tical trace. Fuzzy Logged Sampled Logged Diagram 2. Note. This data extract was taken from a 56 hour temperature run, which resulted in approx- imately 1 Mbyte of sample data, and approximately 40 Kbyte of Fuzzy Logged data.
Appendix G: F sub zero Sterilisation The significance of F The F value is used in the pharmaceutical and related industries in the sterilisation of items. A brief summary is included here to give the essence of the meaning of the terms used. When items are subjected to sterilisation by heating, the rate at which micro-organisms are killed is dependent on the temperature.
Because of this small, but increasing contribution to F once T reaches 100 ºC, and the fact that in this trace the temperature exceeds 121.11ºC, the F value reaches 15 at time t = 20 minutes, at which point the sterilisation is complete, and cooling begins. For some applications it is allowed to report the F value that is finally achieved as the sample cools back to the start temperature, in this example 100 ºC, and so the...
Appendix H: Calibration AI Calibration and CJC Calibration For AI and CJC Factory and User Calibration see “Calibration” on page 93 Sensor Compensation Sensor Compensation may be required to improve accuracy on a sub range. This is an ad- justment to the value of the signal input on each channel, based on the Engineering units. To set this up in the recorder see Sensor Comp in the menu for “Analogue In Menu”...
Sensor Compensation • Low Offset - enter an offset value that is offset against the Low Eng value. • High Eng - only active when Full Range is not active. Set the High limit for the Engineering units. • High Offset - enter an offset value that is offset against the High Eng value.
