TEST UNIT "TDMS" FOR STRAIN-GAUGE


. LOAD MEASURING SYSTEM
GENERAL
The load measuring system on Transitronic and Dynatron M V lift
installation (DMS) is based on strain-gauges which are glued t o four
supports under the car floor. Ordinary test equipment, eg multimeter, is
not suitable t o test the strain-gauges. Therefore a special test and
diagnosis unit, TDMS, has been developed.

Fig 9.3.7

DESCRIPTION AND USE


C

The TDMS unit is an easily operated instrument featuring a 3.5 digit LCD
.display. Dimensions are approx 1 5 0 X 8 0 X 50mm, the power supply by
a standard 9 V battery. Build in is a unit self test function and a "battery
low" indicator. Detailed operation instructions are kept with each TDMS
unit.
The TDMS unit permits the following tests and diagnosis:

Test on strain-gauge before and after the car assembly.

Detection of a single faulty strain-gauge which


replacement of all four gauges unnecessary.

Insulation test between the strain-gauges and cable shield or earth.

Indicates the location of a fault either on strain-gauges or the


amplifier (VDMS).

TEST INSTRUMENT T E l 6

TEST INSTRUMENT TE 1 6

1.

GENERAL
The testing instrument TE16 is used for commissioning and as a help for
trouble shooting Dynatron S drives. Its illuminating numbers indicate the
operation of the input and output terminals of the electronics, of certain
internal signals indicating the operational status, and, in addition, the
instrument delivers error messages.
Further, by input o f a certain key combination, the testing instrument
TE16 can be switched over t o a program mode which allows input o f
particular data of the installation and performance of special travels (for
instance TUEV-travels ie travels required for Government tests).

2.

CONNECTION OF TEI 6 TO DYNATRON S


The instrument is connected b y means of the connecting cable t o the
plug "SERVST" on print RDS3 Q. The supply voltage of 5 V comes from
the "SERVST" plug. The return circuit connection is already made via the
service plug. In case of an RDS2 Q print take the 5 V supply from the
Miconic B print bay supply rail (see Fig 9.3.3).
ATTENTION: The connection can also be made when the installation is
switched on.
This is necessary t o avoid cancelling of a possibly
registered error.

ICU ANALYSER
I.

GENERAL
The ICU (Industrial Control Unit) Analyser is an instrument used t o
interrogate the software program on Miconic B controls. By selecting a
certain address the unit displays the logic level "0"or "1 " .(low or high) of
the function under this address.
The ICU Analyser is handy t o trace signals in the program. It is mainly
used during the commissioning phase.
Its use calls for a good
understanding of the software.
'

A software listing is essential for the addresses and corresponding


functions. The Analyser is usually not required for normal fault finding
and maintenance work. There are no error log features included in the
ICU Analyser.

USER INSTRUCTIONS FOR ICU ANALYSER


2.1

'

Connecting of analyser
The instrument can be hung on the side of the print bay (Picture 1 Fig

9.3.4).
The power supply is obtained from the power rails at the rear of the bay
as follows: (Picture 2 Fig 9.3.4).
Red clip (upper) = VDD ( + 1 2 V) rail.
Black clip (lower) = VSS or rail.
The.communication with the PE 80, 280 or 3 8 0 pc board is established
by a ribbon cable and 2 6 way socket.
To connect a PE 8 0 board it is necessary to remove it from the bay
(switch the lift or control section off before). Feed the cable through the
bay from the top and plug the socket into the header (Picture 3 Fig 9.3.4
and sketch on Fig 9.3.5). The header on the PE 280 board is situated so
that the analyser can be connected without removing the print (see Fig
9.3.6)
ATTENTION :
Prior t o connecting the unit t o the PE board make absolutely certain that
the power supply leads are properly connected.

2.2

Operating of the ICU analyser


The Miconic B test instrument is a logic analyser w i t h t w o trigger modes
specially developed for the one bit ICU system.

The instructions are entered w i t h buttons "H" (see Fig 9.3.7). The
selected address can be stepped forward. or backward (increment or
decrement) with the button "Jn.
On initial switch on, the unit is in "Trigger Mode I".

TRIGGER MODE I: 'E/A/RAMW.


In trigger mode I, the displays "A" and "C" are not lit up.
The selected address (EIAIRAM) shows up in display "B".
By entering an input, output or RAM address (in hexadecimal) the LED
"D" show the logic status of that address ("1" or "0").
By .operating push button "E" it is possible t o switch between trigger
mode I and trigger mode II.

TRIGGER MODE II: "PC".


In trigger mode II the LED in push button "E" lights up.
counter address is indicated on the display "C".

The program-

The respective OP code and its address is indicated in display " A " (OP
code) and "B" (address).

By entering a program step address (in hexadecimal) the condition of the


data bus (1 bit) at this program step is indicated b y LED "D".
SWITCHING TO 4 K

EPROM

The switch "Select 4K-Prom", push button "F", is used when a "Long lift
program" w i t h a 4K EPROM is employed. In this case the normal address
capacity (4K) of the analyser is exceeded.
To enable the reading of the total program address area (max 8K) the test
instrument divides it into t w o parts (EPROM 1 and EPROM 2).
With switch "F" the address area is switched between EPROM 1 and
EPROM 2.
The selected EPROM (1 or 2) is indicated by LED "G".

CONNECTION OF OSCILLOSCOPE

On the BNC connector "K" it is possible to connect an oscilloscope.


The databus can be observed in both trigger modes.
The oscilloscope has to be connected to M01 during this operation.

The digital display is used during commissioning, maintenance work and
fault finding on escalators and moving walks (Compaveyors). It gives
information regarding the operating status, errors and stored data (eg
speed) in code form.
There are t w o types of displays:

2.

a)

The portable display for early Miconic F controlled escalator l


moving walks.

b)

The in the decking cover built in display, now a standard feature on


all escalator/moving walks.

THE PORTABLE DISPLAY


This type of display is used on Miconic F controls with the printed circuit
. board type F1 IQ.
The display connects to the plugs X2.15 - X2.24 on the PF1 print. This
print is located in the control section situated in the lower pit.

The coded messages operating status (see Table 1) apply t o both, the
single-digit and two-digit displays units.
On the single-digit display unit the characters of a two-digit code are
displayed in succession.
Safety contact error messages are only provided if the particular escalator
or moving walk has contacts for a signalling system.
If the installation is not designed w i t h a signalling system, the display will
always report "rO" if a safety contact is opened.
The following contacts are also not incorporated into the signalling
system:

The display is situated in the decking cover at the lower end of the
escalatorlmoving walk. It is constantly switched on. Table 2 and 3 give
information regarding the error messages. Attention must be given t o the

ROPE TENSIOMETER
GENERAL
The Rope Tensiometer is an instrument used for comparing the tension of
the suspension ropes on a lift. The Schindler Australia Field ~ n g i n e e r i n ~
data sheet SAFEID-40 outlines the rope tension requirements and working
procedure.

REF. OTHER D A T A .

In order to prevent costly damage to ropes


and sheaves it is necessary to check and
adjust equal rope tension on all traction
drive lifts under service contract.

USER INSTRUCTIO@

E E
R

Place the lift car in such a way that the car


roof is accessible from the second lowest
landing.
'

Install the rope tensiometer on the first


rope as indicated in the sketch. (See page
1.)

Note: The distance from the rope socket or


diverter sheave to the hook of the spring
balance (Hook 2 ) should be at least 1 metre.
Read and record the value indicated on the
spring balance (tension value) of each
suspension rope of the lift.

Compare the tension values of the individual


ropes and equalize their tension by turning
the nuts on the standing ends on top,of the
car, in the machine room and/or on the
counterweight in the appropriate direction.
Before measuring the corrected rope tension
again it is essential to drive the car to the
top floor and back several times, preferably
at contract speed. This enables the ropes to
re-adjust their tension over the whole
length.

Once again measure the rope tension on all
ropes. A further adjustment on the standing
ends might be necessary.
Repeat the whole procedure until the rope
tension on all ropes is equal.

Do not forget to tighten the locknuts on the


standing ends once equal rope tension has
been achieved.
