FOUNDATION fieldbus™
1.1
Overview
FOUNDATION fieldbus™ is a digital communications system
that serially interconnects devices in the field. A Fieldbus
system is similar to a Distributed Control System (DCS)
with two exceptions:
• Although a FOUNDATION fieldbus™ system can use the
same physical wiring as 4–20 mA device, Fieldbus
devices are not connected point to point, but rather
are multidropped and wired in parallel on a single pair
of wires (referred to as a segment).
• FOUNDATION fieldbus™ is a system that allows the
user to distribute control across a network. Fieldbus
devices are smart and can actually maintain control
over the system.
Unlike 4–20 mA analog installations in which the two wires
carry a single variable (the varying 4–20 mA current), a digital communications scheme such as FOUNDATION fieldbus™
considers the two wires as a network. The network can carry
many process variables as well as other information. The
PULSAR Model R96 FF transmitter is a
FOUNDATION fieldbus™ registered device that communicates
with the H1 FOUNDATION fieldbus™ protocol operating at
31.25 kbits/sec. The H1 physical layer is an approved IEC
61158 standard.

1.2
Device Description (DD)
An important requirement of Fieldbus devices is the
concept of interoperability, defined as “the ability to operate
multiple devices in the same system, regardless of manufacturer, without loss of functionality.”
Device Description (DD) technology is used to achieve this
interoperability. The DD provides extended descriptions
for each object and provides pertinent information needed
by the host system. DDs are similar to the drivers that your
personal computer (PC) uses to operate peripheral devices
connected to it. Any Fieldbus host system can operate with
a device if it has the proper DD and Common File Format
(CFF) for that device.
The most recent DD and CFF files can be found on the
FOUNDATION fieldbus™ web site at www.fieldbus.org.
NOTE: Consult your host system vendor for any host-specific files that
may be needed.

Link Active Scheduler (LAS)
The default operating class of the PULSAR Model R96 FF
with FOUNDATION fieldbus™ is a Basic device. However, it is
capable of being configured as a Link Active Scheduler
(LAS).
The LAS controls all communication on a FOUNDATION
fieldbus™ segment. It maintains the “Live List” of all
devices on a segment and coordinates both the cyclic and
acyclic timing.
The primary LAS is usually maintained in the host system,
but in the event of a failure, all associated control can be
transferred to a backup LAS in a field device such as the
PULSAR Model R96 FF transmitter.
NOTES:
1) The PULSAR Model R96 is normally shipped from the factory with
Device Class set to Basic.
2) The operating class can be changed from Basic to LAS using a
FOUNDATION fieldbus™ configuration tool.

1.4
Intrinsic Safety
The H1 physical layer supports Intrinsic Safety (IS) applications with bus-powered devices. To accomplish this, an
Intrinsically Safe barrier or galvanic isolator is placed
between the power supply in the safe area and the device in
the hazardous area.
H1 also supports the Fieldbus Intrinsically Safe Concept
(FISCO) model which allows more field devices in a network. The FISCO model considers the capacitance and
inductance of the wiring to be distributed along its entire
length. Therefore, the stored energy during a fault will be
less and more devices are permitted on a pair of wires.
Instead of the conservative entity model, which only allows
about 90 mA of current, the FISCO model allows a maximum of 110 mA for Class II C installations and 240 mA
for Class II B installations.
FISCO certifying agencies have limited the maximum segment length to 1000 meters because the FISCO model does
not rely on standardized ignition curves.
The PULSAR Model R96 FF is available with entity IS,
FISCO IS, FNICO non-incendive, or explosion proof
approvals.

Standard Function Blocks
2.1
Overview
The function of a FOUNDATION fieldbus™ device is determined by the arrangement of a system of blocks defined by
the Fieldbus foundation. The types of blocks used in a typical User Application are described as either Standard or
Advanced.
Function Blocks are built into the FOUNDATION fieldbus™
devices as needed to provide the desired control system
behavior. The input and output parameters of function
blocks can be linked over the Fieldbus and there can be
numerous function blocks in a single User Application.

Note: Number next to PV refers to
channel number in the AI Blocks.
The idea of Function Blocks, which a user can customize
for a particular application, is a key concept of Fieldbus
topology. Function Blocks consist of an algorithm, inputs
and outputs, and a user-defined Block Tag.
The Transducer Block (TB) output is available to the network through the Analog Input (AI) blocks. Refer to
Section 2.3 for additional information on the Transducer
Blocks.
The AI blocks take the TB values and make them available
as an analog value to other function blocks. The AI blocks
have scaling conversion, filtering, and alarm functions.
Refer to Section 2.4 for additional information on the
Analog Input Blocks.
As shown in the diagram at left, the end user typically
configures the Process Variable value as an Analog Input to
their fieldbus network.

2.1.1 Universal fieldbus Block Parameters
The following are general descriptions of the parameters
common to all function blocks. Additional information for
a given parameter may be described later in a section that
describes the specific block.
ST_REV: a read only parameter that gives the revision level
of the static data associated with the block. This parameter
will be incremented each time a static parameter attribute
value is written and is a vehicle for tracking changes in static
parameter attributes.
TAG_DESC: a user assigned parameter that describes the
intended application of any given block.
STRATEGY: a user assigned parameter that identifies
groupings of blocks associated with a given network connection or control scheme.
ALERT_KEY: a user assigned parameter which may be used
in sorting alarms or events generated by a block.
MODE_BLK: a structured parameter composed of the
actual mode, the target mode, the permitted mode(s), and
the normal mode of operation of a block.
• Target: The mode to “go to”
• Actual: The mode the “block is currently in”
• Permitted: Allowed modes that target may take on
• Normal: Most common mode for target
NOTES:
1) It may be required to change the the MODE_BLK target parameter to OOS (out of service) to change configuration parameters in
that specific function block. (When in OOS, the normal algorithm
is no longer executed and any outstanding alarms are cleared.)
2) All blocks must be in an operating mode for the device to operate. This requires the Resource Block and the Transducer Block
to be in “AUTO” before the specific function block can be placed
in a mode other than OOS (out of service).
BLOCK_ERR: a parameter that reflects the error status of
hardware or software components associated with, and
directly affecting, the correct operation of a block.
NOTE: A BLOCK_ERR of “Simulation Active” in the Resource Block
does not mean simulation is active—it merely indicates that the
simulation (hardware) enabling jumper is present. (See page 21
and refer to Section 2.4.5 for additional information).

2.3
Transducer Block
The two TRANSDUCER blocks (TB) contained within the
PULSAR Model R96 FF transmitter are custom blocks containing parameters that are pertinent to the transmitter
itself.
TRANSDUCER Block 1 (used for level only operation)
contains information such as the Configuration,
Diagnostics, Calibration data, output level and Status information.
TRANSDUCER Block 2 contains parameters for volume
measurement configuration.
The read-only parameters and read-write parameters within
the TB are grouped in a useful configuration.
• The read-only parameters report the block status and
operation modes.
• The read-write parameters affect both the operation of
the function block and the transmitter itself.
NOTE: The Transducer Block will automatically be changed to “Out of
Service” when the local interface (keypad) is used to change a
static parameter online. The Transducer Block must be manually
placed back in service from the Host System to resume
operation.
58-640 PULSAR Model R96 Pulse Burst Radar Transmitter - FOUNDATION fieldbus™ Instruction Manual
13
2.3.1 Transducer Block Parameters
The first six parameters in the TRANSDUCER Block are the
universal parameters discussed in section 2.1.1. After the
universal parameters, six additional parameters are required
for Transducer Blocks. The most notable of these parameters are UPDATE_EVT and BLOCK_ALM. It should be
noted that these six additional parameters must exist but do
not have to be implemented.
An important device-specific parameter found later in the
TRANSDUCER Block list is PRESENT_STATUS, which
displays the status of the device. If more than one message
exists, then the messages are displayed in priority order.
If PRESENT_STATUS indicates a problem, refer to
Section 5.2, Troubleshooting.
For a complete list of Transducer Block Parameters, refer
to table in the Appendix.
NOTE: The user should compare the DD file and revision number of the
device with the HOST system to ensure they are at the same
revision level.
Refer to the DD Revision Table Section 1.2.1.
Refer to Appendix A for a complete list of the two Transducer
Block parameter sets.
2.3.2 Password Parameters
To change a parameter at the local user interface, host, or
fieldbus interface, a value matching the user password must
be entered (Default = 0). If a static parameter is changed
from the local user interface, the Associated Transducer
Block goes Out of Service (OOS).
Refer to the Section 4.3 for additional information regarding passwords.
After five minutes with no keypad activity, the entered password expires. However, the device must be placed back in
service from the Host System.
2.3.3 PULSAR Model R96 FF Configuration Parameters
One of the main advantages of the PULSAR Model R96 FF
Pulse Burst Radar transmitter is that the device can be delivered pre-configured to the user.
14
58-640 PULSAR Model R96 Pulse Burst Radar Transmitter - FOUNDATION fieldbus™ Instruction Manual
On the other hand, part of the advantage of FOUNDATION
fieldbus™ is to provide the ability to monitor changes and
make adjustments to a transmitter. The Fieldbus™ concept
allows a user to make adjustments if deemed necessary.
2.3.4 PULSAR Model R96 FF Device-Specific
Configuration Parameters
Refer to PULSAR Model R96 I/O Manual 58-602 for
detailed information on the Model R96 device-specific

BLOCK_ERR_DESC: Reports more specific details regarding some errors reported through BLOCK_ERR.
The MODE_BLK parameter (within both the TB and AI
Blocks) must be set to AUTO to pass the PV Value through
the AI to the network.
Transducer scaling, called XD_SCALE is applied to the PV
from the CHANNEL to produce the FIELD_VAL in percent.
• Valid XD_SCALE engineering units depend on the
Channel Type.
2.4.2 AI Block Diagnostics
1.
2.
3.
4.
The AI blocks can display a BLOCK_ERR diagnostic
when:
The Channel is not set correctly.
XD_SCALE does not have suitable engineering units.
The SIMULATE parameter is active.
AI block MODE is O/S (out of service).
NOTE: This can be caused by the Resource Block being OOS or the AI
Block not scheduled for execution.
5. L-TYPE not set or set to Direct with improper
OUT_SCALE.
The AI block uses the STATUS_OPTS setting and the
“LIMIT” ALARM PARAMETERS value to modify the AI
PV and OUT QUALITY.
A Damping Filter is a feature of the AI block. The
PV_FTIME parameter is a time constant of a single exponential filter for the PV, in seconds. This parameter can be
used to dampen out fluctuation in level due to excessive turbulence.
The AI block also has multiple ALARM functions that
monitor the OUT parameter for out of bound conditions.
2.4.3 Local Display of Analog Input
The PULSAR Model R96 FF transmitter incorporates a
useful feature that allows the Analog Input (AI) block Out
values to be displayed on the local LCD.
18
58-640 PULSAR Model R96 Pulse Burst Radar Transmitter - FOUNDATION fieldbus™ Instruction Manual
NOTE: There are many reasons that AI block Out values can deviate
from the measurement value originating in the Transducer
block, and because the keypad and local display will only provide access to Transducer block parameters, there is no way to
change (or view) the other fieldbus configuration items affecting
the AI block output using the keypad and LCD.
In other words, these screens should only be considered as
measured value indicators for configured transmitters. For
example:
• The screens are not used for commissioning or
diagnostic/troubleshooting purposes.
• Prior to full fieldbus configuration (transmitter
assigned a permanent address, AI block(s) configured
and scheduled for execution, etc.), the value displayed
will be 0 with “BAD: OUT OF SERVICE” indicated.
It will not reflect the transducer measurement.
2.4.3.1 AI Out Display Screens
The Analog Input Block Out values can be conditionally
displayed as part of the “rotating” home menu screens. A
representative example is shown at left.
The screens will be formatted as shown with:
• Physical Device Tag (Selectable)
• Measured Value Status (Bad, Good, Uncertain)
• Bar Graph
For example, “AI1_Level” would be the most commonly
used AI Out screen.
“AI2---” would be displayed when the channel value is 0
[uninitialized] for AI block 2.
LCD Home Screen
Because the Model R96 transmitter has six (6) Analog Input
blocks, any or all of which may be used in particular applications, a Transducer block parameter controls which AI
block Out values will be displayed on the LCD.
Any or all (or none) of the AI block Out values can be
selected for display on the rotating home menu.
NOTE: In the photo at left, status is shown as “Bad out of Service”.
This message would be shown prior to commissioning.

2.4.5 Simulation Feature
The PULSAR Model R96 with FOUNDATION fieldbus™
supports the Simulate feature in the Analog Input block.
The Simulate feature is typically used to exercise the operation of an AI block by simulating a TRANSDUCER block
input.
This feature cannot be activated without the placement of a
hardware jumper. A jumper is provided in the “Run” position of the PULSAR Model R96, and is placed under the
display module. To enable the simulation feature, remove
display module and move the jumper to the “SIM” position. Refer to figure at left for jumper location.
NOTE: A BLOCK_ERR of “Simulation Active” in the Resource Block
does not mean simulation is active—it merely indicates that the
simulation (hardware) enabling jumper is present.
• The jumper may be removed to eliminate the
BLOCK_ERR and placed back in the “Run”
position.
2.5 PID Block
Place Jumper in the
“SIM” position to
enable simulation.
The PID Function Block contains the logic necessary to
perform Proportional/Integral/Derivative (PID) control.
The block provides filtering, set point and rate limits, feedforward support, output limits, error alarms, and mode
shedding.
Although most other function blocks perform functions
specific to the associated device, the PID block may reside
in any device on the network. This includes a valve, a transmitter, or the host itself.
The PULSAR Model R96 FF PID Block implementation
follows the specifications documented by the Fieldbus
Foundation.

the menu structure that affect the operation of the system.
The user password can be changed to any numerical value
up to 59999. When the transmitter is programmed for
password protection, a password is required whenever
configuration values are changed.
User Password
The User Password allows the customer to limit access to
the basic configuration parameters from both the local and
fieldbus interfaces.
The default User Password installed in the transmitter at
the factory is 0. (With a password of 0, the transmitter is
not password protected and any value in the basic user
menus can be adjusted without entering a confirming
password.)
NOTE: If a User Password is not known or has been misplaced, the

5.0 Troubleshooting and Diagnostics
The PULSAR Model R96 transmitter is designed and engineered for trouble-free operation over a wide range of operating conditions. The transmitter continuously runs a series
of internal self-tests and displays helpful messages on the
large graphic liquid crystal display (LCD) when attention is
required.
The combination of these internal tests and diagnostics
messages offer a valuable proactive method of troubleshooting. The device not only tells the user what is wrong, but
also, and more importantly, offers suggestions on how to
solve the problem.
All of this information can be obtained directly from the
transmitter on the LCD, remotely from the Fieldbus host
system, or by utilizing PACTware and the PULSAR Model
R96 DTM.
PACTware™ PC Program
The PULSAR Model R96 offers the ability to perform
more advanced diagnostics such as Trending and Echo
Curve analysis using a PACTware DTM. This is a powerful
troubleshooting tool that can aid in the resolution of any
diagnostic indicators that may appear.
5.1 Diagnostic Parameters
As mentioned above, the PULSAR Model R96 measurement engine runs through a series of self-tests and will
detect and report faulty operation. The TRANSDUCER
BLOCK displays this diagnostic information in the STATUS INDICATOR parameter. Refer to Section 5.1.3 for
more information on specific diagnostic indicators.
Note: Within the TRANSDUCER BLOCK,
BLOCK_ERROR is not used except for indicating Out of
Service (OOS).
For the first few seconds after power is applied to the Model
R96 transmitter, the LEVEL_STATUS/QUALITY is
“Uncertain,” the SUB_STATUS is “Initial value,” and the
LIMIT attribute is shown as “Constant.”
When the Model R96 is operating properly, the
LEVEL_STATUS/QUALITY is shown as “GOOD,” and
the SUB_STATUS is “Non-Specific.”
40
58-640 PULSAR Model R96 Pulse Burst Radar Transmitter - FOUNDATION fieldbus™ Instruction Manual
While changing any transmitter parameters using the local
display or through a system configuration tool (with the
MODE_BLK in OOS), the output might be inaccurate
because of the changing parameters. When the device is set
to OOS, the TRANSDUCER BLOCK will still output
level but the QUALITY will be shown as “Bad” and the
SUB_STATUS is “Out of Service.”
If the Model R96 fails to find a measurable level, the
TRANSDUCER BLOCK maintains the last good value as
the output and flags the failure. The QUALITY is “Bad,”
the SUB_STATUS is “Device failure” for no level, and the
LIMIT attribute is “Constant.”
Refer to Section 5.2 for additional information.
5.1.1 Diagnostics (Namur NE 107)
The PULSAR Model R96 transmitter includes an exhaustive list of Diagnostic Indicators which follow the NAMUR
NE 107 guidelines.
NAMUR is an international user association of automation
technology in process industries, whose goal is to promote
the interest of the process industry by pooling experiences
among its member companies. In doing so, this group
promotes international standards for devices, systems, and
technologies.
The objective of NAMUR NE 107 was essentially to make
maintenance more efficient by standardizing diagnostics
information from field devices. This was initially integrated
via FOUNDATION Fieldbus, but the concept applies regardless of the communication protocol.
According to the NAMUR NE107 recommendation, "Self
Monitoring and Diagnosis of Field Devices," fieldbus diagnostic results should be reliable and viewed in the context of
a given application. The document recommends categorizing
internal diagnostics into four standard status signals:
• Failure
• Function Check
• Out of Specification
• Maintenance required
58-640 PULSAR Model R96 Pulse Burst Radar Transmitter - FOUNDATION fieldbus™ Instruction Manual
41
In essence, this approach ensures that the correct diagnostic
information is available to the correct person-at the correct
time. In addition, it allows diagnostics to be applied, as
most appropriate, for a particular plant application (such as
process control engineering or asset management maintenance). Customer specific mapping of diagnostics to these
categories allows for flexible configuration depending on the
user's requirements.
From an external Model R96 transmitter perspective, diagnostic information includes measurement of process conditions, in addition to detection of internal device or system
anomalies.
As mentioned above, the indicators can be assignable (via
the DTM or host system) by the user to any (or none) of
the NAMUR recommended Status Signal categories:
Failure, Function Check, Out of Specification, and
Maintenance Required.
The FOUNDATION fieldbus version of the Model R96 transmitter was implemented according to the Field Diagnostics
Profile, which is consistent with the objectives of NE 107.

In this example, “Calibration Required” is mapped to both

A default mapping of all diagnostic indicators will be applied
initially, and can be re-applied through use of a restart with
defaults operation.
58-640 PULSAR Model R96 Pulse Burst Radar Transmitter - FOUNDATION fieldbus™ Instruction Manual
Refer to the table below for a complete listing of the Model
R96 diagnostic indicators, along with their explanations,
default categories, and recommended remedies.
NOTES:
1) The remedies shown in this table can also be seen on
the transmitter LCD by viewing the present status
screen when the device is in a diagnostic condition.
2) Those indicators showing failure as the default result
in an alarm condition.
5.1.2 Diagnostic Indication Simulation
The DD and DTM allow for the ability to manipulate
diagnostic indicators mapped to NE-107 alarm categories in
Resource Block. Intended as a means to verify the configuration of the diagnostic parameters and connected equipment, a user can manually change any indicator in the
Resource Block to and from the active state.

• The cable shield is to be hard grounded only at one
point close to the DCS. In addition, the cable shield
can be capacitively grounded in multiple places to
improve EMC protection.
• Ensure all devices are on the “live list,” and the
schedule has been downloaded.
• Ensure that the Resource Block, then the Transducer
Block, and lastly the Function Block(s) being used are
in“Auto” mode rather than Out of Service (OOS).
If all of these requirements are met, stable communication
should be established.

Service Policy
Return Material Procedure
Owners of MAGNETROL may request the return of a
control or any part of a control for complete rebuilding or
replacement. They will be rebuilt or replaced promptly.
Controls returned under our service policy must be
returned by Prepaid transportation. Magnetrol will repair
or replace the control at no cost to the purchaser (or
owner) other than transportation if:
So that we may efficiently process any materials that are
returned, it is essential that a “Return Material
Authorization” (RMA) number be obtained from the
factory prior to the material’s return. This is available
through Magnetrol local representative or by contacting
the factory. Please supply the following information:
1. Returned within the warranty period; and
2. The factory inspection finds the cause of the claim to
be covered under the warranty.
If the trouble is the result of conditions beyond our control; or, is NOT covered by the warranty, there will be
charges for labor and the parts required to rebuild or
replace the equipment.
In some cases it may be expedient to ship replacement
parts; or, in extreme cases a complete new control, to
replace the original equipment before it is returned. If this
is desired, notify the factory of both the model and serial
numbers of the control to be replaced. In such cases, credit for the materials returned will be determined on the
basis of the applicability of our warranty.
