DESCRIPTION
The DRG-AR-TC is a DIN rail mount,
thermocouple input limit alarm with
dual setpoints and two contact closure
outputs. The field configurable input
and alarm functions offer flexible
setpoint capability. There are up to six
temperature ranges available for each
thermocouple type to ensure accura-
cy and maximize setpoint resolution.
A bipolar input switch is provided for
temperature ranges below 0°C.
The DRG-AR-TC is configurable as a
single or dual setpoint alarm, with HI or
LO trips, upscale or downscale ther-
mocouple burnout detection and
failsafe or non-failsafe operation. Also
included are adjustable deadbands
(0.25 to 5% of full scale input) for each
setpoint and a flexible DC power sup-
ply which accepts any voltage be-
tween 9 and 30VDC.
DIAGNOSTIC LEDS
The DRG-AR-TC is equipped with
three front panel LEDs. The first is a
dual function LED labeled INPUT.
This green LED indicates DC power
and input signal status. Active DC
power is indicated by an illuminated
LED. If this LED is off, check line
power and wiring connection. If the
input signal is more than 110% of the
full scale range, the LED will flash at 8
Hz. Below 0%, the flash rate is 4 Hz.
Two red LED’s indicate the relay state
for each setpoint. An illuminated red
LED indicates the tripped condition.
OUTPUT
The DRG-AR-TC is equipped with two
SPDT (form C) relays, rated at
120VAC or 28VDC at 5 amperes.
Each of these relays is independently
controlled by the field configurable set
point and deadband.
OPERATION
The field configurable DRG-AR-TC
limit alarm setpoints can be config-
ured for HI or LO, failsafe or non-
failsafe operation. Each of the
setpoints has a respective HI or LO
deadband. In a tripped condition, the
setpoint is exceeded and the appro-
priate red LED will illuminate. The trip
will reset only when the process falls
below the HI deadband or rises above
the low deadband (see Figure 1). For
proper deadband operation, the HI
setpoint must always be set above the
LO setpoint.
In failsafe operation, the relay is en-
ergized when the process is below the
HI setpoint or above the LO setpoint
(opposite for non-failsafe). In the
failsafe mode, a power failure results
in an alarm state output.
DYNAMIC DEADBAND
LSI circuitry in the DRG-AR-TC pre-
vents false trips by repeatedly sam-
pling the input. The input must remain
beyond the setpoint for 100 millisec-
onds, uninterrupted, to qualify as a
valid trip condition. Likewise, the input
must fall outside the deadband and
remain there for 100 milliseconds to
return the alarm to an untripped con-
dition. This effectively results in a
“dynamic deadband” —based on
time— in addition to the normal
deadband.

effect of deadband(s).

CONFIGURATION
Unless otherwise specified, the
factory presets Model DRG-AR-TC as
follows:
Input: J Type
Range: 0 to 350°C
Output: Dual, SPDT
Trip: A: HI, B: LO
Failsafe: No
Deadband: A, B: 0.25%
The DC power input accepts any DC
source between 9 and 30V, typically
a 12V or 24VDC source is used.
For other I/O ranges, refer to
Table 1 and reconfigure switches SW1
and SW2 for the desired input type,
range and function.
WARNING:
Do not attempt to change any
switch settings with power applied. Severe
damage will result!
1. With DC power off, position switch
SW1-1, 2, 3 and SW2-
1 through 6 for the desired input range
(Table 1).
2. Set positions 4 and 5 of function
switch “SW1” to ON for a HI trip
setpoint or OFF for a LO trip setpoint
(Figure 4).
3. Set position 6 of function switch
“SW1” to ON for non-failsafe opera-
tion or OFF for failsafe operation (e.g.
alarm trips upon power failure).
4. Set positions 7 and 8 of function
switch "SW1" to upscale or downscale
burn-out.
