PID controller mode: configuration example

There are two tabs for configuration of the module in PID controller mode: “PID” and “PID adjustment”. “PID adjustment” tab serves for selecting adjustment ratios. The parameters set in this tab are applied upon “Save” key activation, however, these parameters are not saved in the non-volatile memory.

For changing the module settings, enable PID controller mode in “PID” tab, set PID frequency, max and min value, DAC2 output operation mode, feedback communication node number, reference node number, displayed data flow types for Output 1 and 2. Then enter the tab “PID adjustment”, select corresponding ratios depending on your task. After that copy the selected ratios from “PID adjustment” tab to “PID” tab.

Signal repeater mode: configuration

As the “Repeater” mode is activated, the module forwards a signal (obtained by means of linear conversion of the digitized signal from the digital module, node of which corresponds to that selected in ZET7190-R module) to analog outputs. Source digital signal in the range «max input X value» – «min input X value» is transformed into output signal in the range (0-5) V.

In the repeater mode ZET7190-R can be used off-line without connection to PC. In the case if the CAN network has a device with a set node number, ZET7190-R will use it and will form an output signal based on the data received.

In the “Repeater” mode the module can be used as a transmitter for “4-20 mA” interface. Input voltage range (0-5) V forms limitation for current loop operation mode 4-20 mA – current loop impedance max value is limited by 240 Ohm.

For changing module settings in the current output module one should:

1) calculate output voltage range
Ur_min = R*0,004,
Ur_max = R*0,02,
where R – is the current loop impedance.

2) calculate ratios depending on the input values range
k = ∆Ur/∆Uin,
where ∆Ur = Ur_max-Ur_min, ∆Uin – repeated values range
b = Ur_min-k* Uin_min

3) calculate ratios to be recorded in the sensor settings
min input value = -b/k
max imput value = (5-b)/k

Example. Settings of  ZET7190-R module in signal repeater mode from  ZET7112 for connection via current loop interface 4…20 mA to ZET7180-I.
R = 120 Ohm
Ur_min = 120*0,004 = 0,48
Ur_max = 120*0,02 = 2,4
∆Ur = 1,96, ∆Ur-in = 16 (mPa)
k = 0,12; b = 0,48
Min input value = -4
Max input value = 37,6667
