The PAXCK (PAX Clock/Timer) offers many features and performance capabilities to suit a wide range of industrial applications. Both can function as an Elapsed Timer or Preset Timer, while the PAXCK also offers Real-Time Clock with Date capability. The Plug-in option cards allow the opportunity to configure the meter for the present application, while providing easy upgrades for future needs.
It can function as an Elapsed Time Indicator. By using two separate signal inputs and 23 selectable timer ranges, the meter can be programmed to meet most any timing application. With the addition of a Plug-in Setpoint card, the PAXCK can easily become a dual or quad output preset timer.
The PAXCK can also operate as a Real-Time Clock (RTC), with the Real-Time Clock Card already installed. The meter is capable of displaying time in 12 or 24-hour time formats. The 12-hour format can be displayed in hours and minutes, with or without an AM/PM indication or in hours, minutes, and seconds. The 24-hour format can be displayed in hours and minutes or in hours, minutes, and seconds. The PAXCK is also capable of a calendar display in which the day, month and/or year can be displayed. The meter will recognize leap years, and can automatically adjust for Daylight Savings Time. The Real-Time Clock has the ability to externally synchronize with other PAXCK meters to provide a uniform display network throughout the plant.
If the application calls for both a Preset Timer and a Real-Time Clock at the same time, the PAXCK can handle this requirement as well. The meter provides up to four different displays, accessed via front panel push buttons or external inputs. The displays are Timer (TMR), which displays the current timer value; Count (CNT), which displays the current cycle counter value; Date (DAT), which displays the current programmed date; and Real-Time Clock, which displays the current time. A battery-backed Real-Time Clock plug-in card is provided with the PAXCK. This card, which includes a lithium coin-cell battery, will maintain the time and date when main power is removed.
The meter accepts inputs from a variety of sources including switch contacts and outputs from CMOS or TTL circuits. The input can be configured to trigger on the edge or level of the incoming pulse. Internal jumpers are available to allow the selection for sinking inputs (active low) or sourcing inputs (active high).
The front panel keys and three user inputs are programmable to perform various meter functions. One of the functions includes exchanging parameter lists, allowing for two separate listings of setpoint values, timer start/stop values, counter start/stop values and RTC daily on and off values.
The meter can have up to four setpoint outputs, determined by the optional plug-in cards. The setpoint plug-in cards provide dual FORM-C relays (5A), quad FORM-A relays (3A) or either quad sinking or quad sourcing open collector logic outputs. The outputs can be assigned to the timer, counter, RTC date, and RTC time. The outputs can also be independently configured to suit a variety of control and alarm requirements.
Plug-in cards can also provide serial communications. These include RS232, RS485, Modbus, DeviceNet, and Profibus-DP. Display values, setpoint alarm values and setpoint states can be controlled through serial communications. With the RS232 or RS485 communication card installed, it is possible to configure the meter using a Windows based program. The meter configuration data can be saved to a file for later recall.
Once the meter has been initially configured, the parameter list may be locked out from further modification entirely, or the setpoint, timer start/stop values, counter start/stop values, RTC time SET, and Display Intensity can be made accessible. This lockout is possible through a security code or user input.
The meter has been specifically designed for harsh industrial environments. With a NEMA 4X/IP65 sealed bezel and extensive testing to meet CE requirements, the meter provides a tough yet reliable application solution.
