3.1.5 RS-485 RS-485 is a standard defi ning electrical characteristics of drivers and receivers for use in balanced digital multipoint systems. RS-485 networks can be used effectively over long distances in electrically noisy industrial environments. Multiple devices may be connected to the same network.

Some RS-485 networks may require terminating resistors at both

Page 18: COMMUNICATIONS MANUAL - HindlePower · COMMUNICATIONS MANUAL EVO - Microprocessor Controlled Float Battery Charger EVO AT SERIES BATTERY CHARGER ... Table of Contents - ATevo …

12AT SERIES BATTERY CHARGER

3 Hardware

ends of the serial network. The decision of whether or not to use termination resistors should be based on the BAUD rate, the cable distance, and the type of cable being used to build the network. In most cases for BAUD rates less than 19.2K, terminating resistors are not required. If termination resistors are used, the network must be designed with the appropriate biasing resistors to ensure reliable communications.

The biasing resistors are responsible for ensuring that the network remains in the idle state when all drivers are tri-stated. In order to guarantee that the receivers remain in a known state, +/- 200mV must always be maintained across the (+) and (-) or (A) and (B) RS-485 inputs. The use of termination resistors requires a signifi cantly lower value of biasing resistors which results in greater dc loading of the network.

Network design and biasing resistor calculations depend on the number of nodes on the network, the type of drivers and receivers on the network, and any biasing already designed into other devices sharing the network. As a result, whether or not use termination resistors and biasing resistor calculation is beyond the scope of this manual. For more information on biasing and termination details see the following ref-erences:

1. EIA/TIA-485 StandardTelecommunication Industry Associationhttp://www.tiaonline.org/standards/catalog/

3.1.6 2-Wire RS-485 Connections To confi gure the Serial Adapter for 2-Wire RS-485 connections:

• P3, “MEDIA” must be set to “485”

• P6 and P7, “# WIRES” must be set to “2W”

• P2, “RXCTRL” must be set to “TXE”

• P4 and P5, “485-TERM” should be set to “OFF”

NOTE:If you want to utilize the on-board termination resistor located on the Serial Adapter, set “P5” to the “ON” position. Termination resistors should only be placed on the extreme ends of the network (2 de-vices only). In addition, the network must be biased correctly or the termination resistors may cause communication errors.

To connect the Serial Adapter to the RS-485 network:

• Wire A- (TB1-1) to the RS-485 network A-

• Wire B+ (TB1-3) to the RS-485 network B+

• Wire GND (TB1-5) to the RS-485 network COM

3.2.2 Ethernet Ethernet is a family of computer networking technologies commonly used in local area networks (LANs). Several variants of Ethernet are available and newer variants typically use copper twisted pair or fi ber optic links in conjunction with hubs or switch to form the network. Ethernet permits a large number of devices to be interconnected and allows the devices to communicate via multiple protocols concurrently.

3.2.3 Ethernet Connections The EVO can be connected to a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet network with a standard Ethernet RJ-45 cable. Plug one end of the cable into J1 of the Ethernet Adapter and the other end into an Ethernet hub, switch or directly into the SCADA master.

3.2.4 Optional Fiber Ethernet Interface Although Ethernet interfaces are standardized, several variants of Ethernet over fi ber exist. The variants are based on different data rates, fi ber type, wavelength, and connector types. At the time of the writing of this manual, over 75 know variants exist.

The EVO Optional Fiber Ethernet Interface can be confi gured to accommodate most if not all of these variants. Due to the vast number of the variants and the continuous additions of new ones, the specifi c offerings and capabilities needed to interface to your fi ber Ethernet network need to be verifi ed with your EVO distributer.

Note 1: A Default variation refers to the variation responded when variation 0 is requested and/or in class 0, 1, 2, or 3 scans.

Note 2:For static (non-change-event) objects, qualifi ers 17 or 28 are only responded when a request is sent with qualifi ers 17 or 28, respectively. Otherwise, static object requests sent with qualifi ers 00, 01, 06, 07, or 08, will be responded with qualifi ers 00 or 01. (For change event objects, qualifi ers 17 or 28 are always responded except for object 70, which responds with qualifi er 1B or 5B.)

Note 3:For the EVO Communications Modules, a cold restart is implemented as a warm restart. The ex-ecutable is not restarted, but the DNP process is restarted.

Note 4: Writes of Internal Indications are only supported for index 7 (Restart IIN1-7), and indices 16 and beyond (user-defi ned indications).

5.4.3 Analog Input Status Points The following table lists Analog Inputs (Object 30).

It is important to note that 16 bit and 32 bit variations of Analog Inputs, Analog Output Control Blocks, and Analog Output Statuses are transmitted through DNP as signed numbers. Even for analog input points that are not valid as negative values, the maximum positive representation is 32767.

For each point, the “Multiplier” column indicates the value the point data is multiplied by. Since all data is sent in integer format, fl oating point numbers are multiplied by a constant (1, 10, or 100) to maintain the decimal information. For example, points with two decimal places are multiplied by 100 (5.67 is sent as 567), points with one decimal point of resolution are multiplied by 10 (8.2 is sent as 82). To convert the point data to the correct value, simply divide the point by the value listed in the ‘Multiplier’ column.

The “Default Deadband” column is used to represent the absolute amount by which the point must change before an analog change event will be generated. The “Default Change Event Assigned Class” column is used to represent the class (1, 2, 3, or none) in which detected change events will be reported. Only the default values for these columns are documented here because the values may change in operation due to either local (user-interface) or remote (through DNP) confi guration control.

5.4.4 Analog Output Status Points The following table lists Analog Outputs (Object 40). The valid range for many of these points depends on the EVO model type (voltage and current rating). Refer to the EVO Operations and Service Manual to determine the valid ranges for these set points. It is important to note that 16 bit and 32 bit variations of Analog Inputs, Analog Output Control Blocks, and Analog Output Statuses are transmitted through DNP as signed numbers. Even for analog input points that are not valid as negative values, the maximum positive representation is 32767.

For each point, the “Multiplier” column indicates the value the point data is multiplied by. Since all data is sent in integer format, fl oating point numbers are multiplied by a constant (1, 10, or 100) to maintain the decimal information. For example, points with two decimal places are multiplied by 100 (5.67 is sent as 567), points with one decimal point of resolution are multiplied by 10 (8.2 is sent as 82). To convert the point data read to the correct value, simply divide the point by the value listed in the ‘Multiplier’ column.

When writing a value to the Analog Output, you must multiply the desired value by the constant in the ‘Multiplier’. For example, if you want to change the ‘Float Voltage Set Point’ to 132 volts, you would need to write 1320 to Analog Output ‘0’ (132 X 10 = 1320). The ‘10’ is the multiplier constant listed in ‘Multiplier’ column for Analog Output Point ‘0’.

The ‘Valid Range’ column lists the possible values that can be successfully written to the associated Analog Output point. This is the true value and does not include the multiplier correction. Attempting to write values outside of this range will result in a DNP3 error response.

For each point, the “Multiplier” column indicates the value the register data is multiplied by. Since all data is sent in integer format, fl oating point numbers are multiplied by a constant (1, 10, or 100) to maintain the decimal information. For example, registers with two decimal places are multiplied by 100 (5.67 is sent as 567), resisters with one decimal point of resolution are multiplied by 10 (8.2 is sent as 82). To convert the register data to the correct value, simply divide the register value by the value listed in the ‘Multiplier’ column.

6.6 Modbus Holdings Registers The following table lists the Modbus Holding Registers.

For each point, the “Multiplier” column indicates the value the register data is multiplied by. Since all data is sent in integer format, fl oating point numbers are multiplied by a constant (1, 10, or 100) to maintain the decimal information. For example, registers with two decimal places are multiplied by 100 (5.67 is sent as 567), resisters with one decimal point of resolution are multiplied by 10 (8.2 is sent as 82). To convert the register data to the correct value, simply divide the register value by the value listed in the ‘Multiplier’ column.

When writing a value to a Holding Register, you must multiply the desired value by the constant in the ‘Multiplier’. For example, if you want to change the ‘Float Voltage Set Point’ to 132 volts, you would need to write 1320 to Holding Register ‘40001’ (132 X 10 = 1320). The ‘10’ is the multiplier constant listed in ‘Multiplier’ column for Holding Register ‘40001’.

The ‘Valid Range’ column lists the possible values that can be successfully written to the associated Holding Register. This is the true value and does not include the multiplier correction. Attempting to write values outside of this range will result in a Modbus error returned as an Exception Response.
