FOUNDATION fieldbus™ Overview
1.1
Description
FOUNDATION fieldbus™ is a digital communication system
that serially interconnects devices in the field across a network.
Fieldbus devices are smart and can maintain control over the
system. The network can carry many process variables as
well as other operational/maintenance information.

Typical Fieldbus Installation
The Enhanced Model TA2 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.
An IEC 61158 shielded twisted pair wire segment can be as
long as 1900 m (6234 feet) without a repeater. Up to
4 repeaters per segment can be used to extend the distance.
The maximum number of devices allowed on a Fieldbus
segment is 32.
Details regarding cable specifications, grounding, termination,
and other network information can be found in IEC 61158
or the wiring installation application guide AG-140 at
www.fieldbus.org.
NOTE: The Model TA2 FF Flow Meter is designed as a “Four-Wire”
Transmitter. Since power is required for the operation, the
TA2 FF requires supplemental power which can be either 15
to 30 VDC or 100 – 264 VAC. The TA2 connection to the host
computer can be installed using a single pair of wires in multidrop configuration.

54-650 Thermatel® Model TA2 Transmitter - FOUNDATION fieldbus™
1.2
Device Configuration
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 follows:
Resource Block describes the characteristics of the
FOUNDATION fieldbus™ device such as the device name,
manufacturer, and serial number.
Transducer Blocks contain information such as calibration
parameters and sensor type. They are used to connect the
sensor to the input function blocks.
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. There can be
numerous function blocks in a single User Application.
PID Blocks are key to many control schemes and contain the
logic necessary to perform Proportional/Integral/Derivative
control.
Analog Input (AI) Blocks use values from the Transducer
Block and make available to other function blocks.
Integrator Blocks accumulate the flow or mass value from
the AI Block to provide the value of the Totalized Flow.
Device Descriptions
An important requirement of Fieldbus devices is the interoperability concept mentioned earlier. 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.
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: Please consult your host system vendor for any host-specific
files that may be needed.

Link Active Scheduler (LAS)
The default operating class of the Enhanced Model TA2
with FOUNDATION fieldbus™ is a basic device. However, it is
capable of being 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, coordinates both the cyclic and acyclic timing and,
at any given time, controls which device publishes data via
Compel data (CD) and Pass Token (PT).
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
Enhanced Model TA2. The operating class can be changed
from basic to LAS using a FOUNDATION fieldbus™ configuration tool.
NOTE: The Enhanced Model TA2 is shipped from the factory with
Device Class set to Basic.

MAGNETROL electronic instruments are manufactured
to the highest quality standards. These instruments utilize
electronic components which may be damaged by static
electricity present in most work environments. The following steps are recommended to reduce the risk of component failure due to electrostatic discharge:
Ship and store circuit boards in anti-static bags. If an antistatic bag is not available, wrap board in aluminum foil.
Do not place boards on foam packing materials.
Use a grounding wrist strap when installing and removing
circuit boards. A grounded workstation is also recommended.
Handle printed circuit boards only by the edges. Do not
touch components or connector pins.
Ensure that all electrical connections are completely secure
and none are partial or floating. Ground all equipment to
a good earth ground.
NOTE: The instrument is rated per IEC 61010-1 for use in Installation
Category II, Pollution Degree 2.

3.3
Installation
3.3.1 Electronics
The instrument is rated for use in Class I, Division 1 and
Class I, Division 2 areas. The enclosure is also rated
NEMA 4X. Remote electronics (optional) should be
installed in an easy to access location within 150 m
(500 feet) of the sensor. The electronics should not be
installed in areas where ambient temperature exceeds
+80 °C (+175 °F). If ambient temperature is between
-30 °C to -54 °C (-22 °F to -65 °F), the unit will operate
but the display will not be readable.
Provide watertight seals for all wiring entrances in the
enclosure to maintain the NEMA 4X rating. Use appropriate NEC section when installing the instrument.
NOTE: A switch or circuit breaker should be installed in close proximity to the equipment and within easy reach of the operator.
It should be marked as the disconnecting device for the
equipment.
3.3.2 Probe/Flow Body
Pipe
centerline
25 mm (1")
Figure 3
Probe Installation into Pipe or duct
using a Compression Fitting
Proper installation of the probe in the pipe or duct is
essential for accurate air or gas flow measurement. Normal
procedures for installing any type of flow element should
be followed. See Appendix B for additional information on
probe location.
A flow arrow is etched on the sides of the probe to designate flow direction. The instrument is calibrated with the
flow in this direction. Ensure that the flow arrow is aligned
in the direction of flow. The instrument is unable to recognize flow direction if inserted with the flow arrow in the
wrong direction.
It is generally recommended that the sensor be located in
the center of the pipe. This location provides less sensitivity
to changes in flow profile. Sensors mounted through compression fittings have the ability to field adjust the sensor
to the desired location by using the dimensions as shown
in Figure 3.
It may be necessary to rotate the head of the instrument to
view the display while maintaining the proper flow orientation. This is accomplished by loosening the set screw on
the bottom of the housing, rotating the enclosure to the
desired position and re-tightening the set screw. The second
set screw is a stop to prevent over rotating the enclosure.
See figure 4.
Figure 4
54-650 Thermatel® Model TA2 Transmitter - FOUNDATION fieldbus™

Various methods of mounting the probe include compression fittings, threads, and flanged connections. Refer to
probe model numbers. The insertion probe can be
installed through a compression fitting. The use of a
bored-through fitting with 3⁄4" or 1" NPT connection for
3
⁄4" outside diameter tube is recommended.
The use of Teflon® ferrules should be considered if repeated reposition of the sensor is considered. The stainless steel
ferule can only be tightened once as it makes a permanent
indentation on the probe. If using a compression fitting
with stainless steel ferrules, ensure that the probe is in the
desired location before tightening.
NOTE: The TA2 flow measurement is based on a fully developed turbulent flow profile in a pipe with the specified inner diameter.
Accuracy will be affected if these conditions are not obtained.
Installing the probe in a tee is not recommended as the flow
profile and the flow area are distorted (See figure 5).
For applications where it is desirable to install or remove
the probe without having to shut down the process,
The MAGNETROL Retractable Probe Assembly (RPA)
can be utilized.
WARNING To avoid potential damage or injury, never loosen a
compression fitting while sensor is under pressure.
Figure 5
Probe Installation into a Tee Fitting is
not Recommended
NOTE: Remote electronics is recommended for operating temperatures greater than +120 °C (+250 °F) or in locations where the
temperature of the electronics will exceed +80 °C (+175 °F).
Optionally, an insertion probe with extended probe length to
provide at least 100 mm (four inches) between the electronics
and the compression fitting can be utilized.
NOTE: The sensor must be installed in a location where moisture
cannot drip or come in contact with the heated element. Any
contact with condensed moisture in the gas flow will cause a
false high flow indication. Consider mounting the probe at
a 45° angle from top, from the side or bottom of the pipe to
minimize possibility of condensed moisture running down the
probe and contacting the sensor (see Figure 6). In extreme
cases, it may be necessary to insulate or even heat trace the
pipe to prevent the condensation of moisture.
The TA2 with an insertion probe provides a point measurement and assumes that a fully developed profile exists.
See Appendix B. The user has the ability to compensate
the flow measurements based upon flow profile considerations under the Advanced Configuration section of the
software. See Section 3.5.9.

Explanation
Totalizer
The TA2 provides both a resettable and a non-resettable totalizer.
Configuration information on the totalizers is found on page 23.
Damping
Increasing the Damping will smooth the TA2 display of the measured values. This
may be used in cases when turbulence is causing fluctuations in the measurement.
The damping value is expressed in time constants. A one-second time constant
means that with a step change in flow, the measured flow value will reach
approximately 63 % of the new value in one second and approximately 99 % of the
new value in five seconds. The lower limit is 0 which means no damping (other than
the inherent response time of the sensor); the upper limit is 15 seconds.
3.5.8 Totalizer
The totalizer provides seven digits of resolution. In the
event of a fault indication, the totalizer will not accumulate. When the value in the totalizer exceeds 9,999,999,
the totalizer will rollover. The Total Time will keep counting.
Both the Resettable and Non-Resettable totalizers have
individual multiplier factors which can be used to prevent
too frequent rollover and potential loss of data.
The Totalizer data is stored in nonvolatile memory, eliminating the need of backup batteries. Data is written hourly.

R Total Time
This is a read-only screen that displays the time that has elapsed since the resettable totalizer was last reset.
R Totalizer Reset
The R Totalizer Reset screen allows the user to reset the total flow and elapsed time of the resettable totalizer to zero.
Since this action will permanently lose this data, a second chance is provided with an “Are you sure” selection.
NR Total Mult
The NR Total Mult permits selection of the multiplier to be used for the Non-resettable totalizer. The function
of the totalizer multiplier is such that if the units are SCF and the multiplier is set to 100, then the totalizer will
increment for each 100 SCF. The default value is 1000.

The default password is 0. If desired, a different password can be entered in the
New Password screen. The password can be changed to any numeric value up to
255. The display will show an encrypted value. Contact MAGNETROL Technical
Support with this value to determine the actual password which was last entered.
Install Factors
Permits the user to enter field adjustment factors to make adjustments to the flow
measurement. These might be due to flow profiles considerations. The formula is a
second order polynomial equation where adjusted flow = a + bx + cx2 where x is
in units selected in the Transducer Block under “USER_UNIT.” Linear adjustments
(changing the B factor) are the simplest. Ensure that units of measurement are
finalized before Install Factors are determined. Changing units of measurement
after Install Factors are calculated can result in reset of the Install Factors and a
warning message.
Gas Cal Table A /B
Permits the user to select calibration for two different gases. If specifically ordered
with calibration for two different gases, then each gas table will represent the calibration data for each gas. If calibrated for a gas other than air, the “A” table
will represent the calibration data for the specified gas and the “B” table will
represent the calibration data for air within a selected calibration range. The two
gas tables can also be used for different ranges of the same gas.
Auto Switching
Allow automatic switching between a low flow Table A and a high flow Table B. It
is necessary to have a dual calibration and distinct flow rate differences between
tables in order to perform switching function. With Foundation Fieldbus version, it
is only possible to Enable from the display.
STP Conditions
Permits the user to select STP (Standard Temperature and Pressure) conditions.
Also referred to as Standard Conditions or Normal Conditions. Any value for temperature can be entered. Pressure can be selected to be 1 Atmosphere or 1 Bar.
Adjustment of the STP conditions will affect the flow calculations.

3.5.14 Calibration Parameters
There are two separate menus for Calibration Parameters titled Cal Parameters A and Cal Parameters B.
These two different sets of Calibration Parameters are used when the TA2 is calibrated on two gases
or for two different ranges. If the unit is calibrated for air, then only Calibration Parameter A is used.
If the TA2 is calibrated for a different gas, then the calibration parameters for the specified gas is contained
in Cal Parameters A, and the air calibration parameters are contained in Calibration Parameters B.
There is an identical menu structure for Cal Parameters B.

3.5.16 Air Equivalency Calibration
The Air Equivalency calibrations permits the use of an air calibration and then, using the MAGNETROL
historic data base, relate the flow of air to the flow of gas. The equations use a polynomial curve fit.
A fault will occur if the curve fit becomes non-monotonic (signal decreases with increasing flow)
which can occur if operating outside the data range. Consult MAGNETROL regarding proper sizing with
Air Equivalency calibrations. The user may contact MAGNETROL to obtain air equivalency factors
for various gases. These values should only be used when the TA2 was calibrated on air. If the
calibration data in the Calibration Table is for a different gas, the results are invalid.

Function Blocks
4.1
Overview
The Model TA2 is a Thermal Mass Flow Meter with nine
FOUNDATION fieldbus™ Function Blocks (one Resource Block,
one Transducer Block, five Analog Input Blocks, one
PID Block, and one Integrator Block). 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 userdefined name.
The RESOURCE Block contains specific information on
the Enhanced TA2 and firmware.
The TRANSDUCER Block output is available to the network through the ANALOG INPUT blocks.
The ANALOG INPUT Blocks (AI) take the TRANSDUCER Block measured values and makes them available as an
analog value to other function blocks. The AI blocks have
scaling conversion, filtering, and alarm functions.
The INTEGRATOR Block will accumulate the flow or
mass over time providing a value of the Totalized Flow.
The PID Block provides logic for
Proportional/Integral/Derivative control.
4.1.1 universal FOundATIOn fieldbus™ Block Parameters
The following are general descriptions of the parameters
common to all blocks. Additional information for a given
parameter is described later in that specific block section.
ST_REV (static data revision): 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 (tag descriptor): 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.
• The actual mode is set by the block during its execution to
reflect the mode used during execution.
• The target mode may be set and monitored through the
mode parameter.
54-650 Thermatel® Model TA2 Transmitter - FOUNDATION fieldbus™
35
• The permitted modes are listed for each block.
• The block must be in an automatic mode for normal operation.
NOTE: The MODE_BLK target parameter must be OOS (out of service)
to change configuration and calibration parameters in that function block (when in OOS, the normal algorithm is no longer executed and any outstanding alarms are cleared).
All blocks must be in an operating mode for the device to operate. This requires the Resource Block to be in “AUTO” and the
Transducer Block to be in “AUTO” before the Function Blocks
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 section 4.2.2 and 5.1 for further information on the
simulation mode.
4.2
Resource Block
The RESOURCE Block contains data specific to the
Enhanced Model TA2 transmitter, along with some
information about the firmware.
NOTE: The Resource Block has no control function.
MODE_BLK: Must be in AUTO in order for the remaining blocks in the transmitter to operate.
NOTE: A Resource Block in “out of service” mode will stop all function
block execution in the transmitter.
RS_STATE (Resource State): identifies the state of the
RESOURCE Block state machine. Under normal operating
conditions, it should be “On-Line.”
TEST_RW: Read/Write test parameter used for conformance
testing.
DD_RESOURCE: a string identifying the tag of the
resource that contains the Device Description for this device.
MANUFAC_ID: contains the MAGNETROL INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION fieldbus™ manufacturer’s ID number, which is 0x000156.
DEV_TYPE: the model number of the THERMATEL
Enhanced Model TA2 transmitter (0x0004). It is used by
interface devices to locate the Device Descriptor (DD) file
for this product.
DEV_REV: contains the device revision of the
THERMATEL Enhanced Model TA2 transmitter. It is used
by interface devices to correctly select the associated DD.
36
54-650 Thermatel® Model TA2 Transmitter - FOUNDATION fieldbus™
DD_REV: contains the revision of the DD associated with
the version of firmware in the THERMATEL Enhanced
Model TA2 transmitter. It is used by interface devices to
correctly select the associated DD.
GRANT_DENY: Options for access to parameters by DCS.
HARD_TYPES: Types of hardware available as channels.
RESTART: Default and Processor selections are available.
Default will reset the Model TA2 to the established block
configuration.
NOTE: As RESTART DEFAULT will set most block configuration
parameters to their default values. Devices need to be reconfigured following activation of this function.
FEATURES: a list of the features available in the transmitter. The Model TA2 features include Reports, and Soft
Write Lock.
FEATURES_SEL: allows the user to turn Features on or off.
CYCLE_TYPE: identifies the block execution methods that
are available.
CYCLE_SEL: allows the user to select the block execution
method.
MIN_CYCLE_T: the time duration of the shortest cycle
interval. It puts a lower limit on the scheduling of the resource.
MEMORY_SIZE: Size of available memory in K bytes.
NV_CYCLE_T: the minimum time interval between copies
of non-volatile (NV) parameters to NV memory. NV memory is only updated if there has been a significant change in
the dynamic value and the last value saved will be available
for the restart procedure. A value of “0” means it will never
be automatically copied. Entries made by human interface
devices to NV parameters are copied to non-volatile memory
at the time of entry.
NOTE: After completing a large copy, allow several seconds before
removing power from the THERMATEL Enhanced Model TA2
transmitter to ensure that all data has been saved.
FREE_SPACE: shows the amount of available memory for
further configuration. The value is zero percent in a preconfigured device.
FREE_TIME: the amount of the block processing time that
is free to process additional blocks.
SHED_RCAS: the time duration at which to give up computer writes to function block RCas locations. Shed from
RCas will never happen when SHED_RCAS = 0.
SHED_ROUT: the time duration at which to give up computer writes to function block ROut locations. Shed from
ROut will never happen when SHED_ROUT = 0.
54-650 Thermatel® Model TA2 Transmitter - FOUNDATION fieldbus™
37
FAULT_STATE, SET_FSTATE, CLR_FSTATE: these only
apply to output function blocks. (The Model TA2 has no
output function blocks).
MAX_NOTIFY: the maximum number of alert reports that
the transmitter can send without getting a confirmation.
The user can set the number low, to control alert flooding,
by adjusting the LIM_NOTIFY parameter value.
LIM_NOTIFY: the maximum numbers of unconfirmed
alert notify messages allowed. No alerts are reported if set
to zero.
CONFIRM_TIME: the time that the transmitter will wait
for confirmation of receipt of a report before trying again.
Retry will not occur if CONFIRM_TIME = 0.
WRITE_LOCK: When set to LOCKED, will prevent any
external change to the static or non-volatile data base in the
Function Block Application of the transmitter. Block connections and calculation results will proceed normally, but
the configuration will be locked.
UPDATE_EVT (Update Event): is an alert generated by a
write to the static data in the block.
BLOCK_ALM (Block Alarm): is used for configuration,
hardware, connection, or system problems in the block. The
cause of any specific alert is entered in the subcode field.
The first alert to become active will set the Active status in
the Status attribute. As soon as the Unreported status is
cleared by the alert reporting task, another block alert may
be reported without clearing the Active status, if the subcode has changed.
ALARM_SUM (Alarm Summary): contains the current
alert status, the unacknowledged states, the unreported
states, and the disabled states of the alarms associated with
the block.
ACK_OPTION (Acknowledge Option): selects whether
alarms associated with the block will be automatically
acknowledged.
WRITE_PRI (Write Priority): the priority of the alarm
generated by clearing the write lock.
WRITE ALM (Write Alarm): the alert generated if the
write lock parameter is cleared.
ITK_VER (ITK Version): contains the version of the
Interoperability Test Kit (ITK) used by the Fieldbus
Foundation during their interoperability testing.

54-650 Thermatel® Model TA2 Transmitter - FOUNDATION fieldbus™
4.3
Transducer Block
The TRANSDUCER Block is a custom block containing
parameters that support the Model TA2 Thermal Mass Flow
Meter. It contains the TA2 transmitter configuration, diagnostics,
and calibration data. Output from the Transducer Block is
process variables and status information.
The TRANSDUCER Block parameters are grouped in a
useful configuration. There are both read-only parameters
and read-write parameters within the TRANSDUCER Block.
• The read-only parameters report the block status and
operation modes.
• The read-write parameters affect the function block basic
operation, transmitter operation, and calibration.
The Transducer Block will automatically be changed to
“Out of Service” when the local interface (keypad) is used
to change a parameter online. The Transducer Block must
be placed back in service from the Host system.
4.3.1 Transducer Block Parameters
The first six parameters in the TRANSDUCER Block are the
universal parameters discussed in section 4.1.1. 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 DEVICE_STATUS, which
displays the status of the device. If more than one message
exists, then the messages are displayed in priority order.
If DEVICE_STATUS indicates a problem, refer to
Section 5.2, Troubleshooting.
For a complete list of Transducer Block Parameters, refer
to table in the Appendix A - Transducer Block Parameters.

Integrator Block
The Integrator Function Block integrates an analog value as
a function of the time. The block may be used as a totalizer
that counts up until reset, or as a batch totalizer that has a
setpoint. When used as a batch totalizer, the integrated
value is compared to pre-trip and trip settings to generate
discrete signals when these settings are reached. The
Integrator Block has two inputs, and can only get an input
value from another function block, typically an Analog
Input Block. It cannot get an input value directly from the
Transducer Block.
The Integrator Block and internal totalizer are independent
and may have different values. The difference can occur due
to different sample times or different reset times.
A simple configuration for the Fieldbus Model TA2 might
be as follows:
• AI Block is configured with channel set to Flow.
XD_SCALE, OUT_SCALE, and L_TYPE parameters
are set appropriately so that the AI Out value is flow
in SCFM.
• IT Block is configured as follows:
• Set Units Index in OUTPUT_RANGE to SCF.
• Select “minutes” for TIME_UNIT1 which corresponds to the rate time unit of the AI Out value.
• Select “Demand” for INTEG_TYPE (Count up
and is reset on demand; totalizer set point and
trip outputs are not used).
• Select “Flow forward” for INTEG_OPT.
• GOOD_LIM set to 90 %.
• UNCERT_LIM set to 75 %.
54-650 Thermatel® Model TA2 Transmitter - FOUNDATION fieldbus™

• Using a Configuration Tool, the OUT value from the
AI Block is connected to IN_1 of the Integrator Block,
and both function blocks are then scheduled for
execution.
• If successful, the function blocks can go into service if
the Resource Block is in service.
Note that the Totalized value in the Integrator Block is
saved in non-volatile memory every 60 seconds. In the
event that the power is lost, the maximum totalized value
lost would correspond to one minute of flow. Also, the IT
Out value will be available for display on the local user
interface similar to the AI Out Values.

Local Display of Function Block Values
The LCD and keypad on the Model TA2 Foundation
Fieldbus transmitter provides access to read or change the
Transducer Block parameters. In addition the TA2 permits
the display of the devices Analog Input [AI] Block and the
Integrator [IT] Block output values on the local LCD under
Measured Values. These values can be displayed on the
rotating display—see section 3.5.5.
A list of the Analog Input Block Process values is shown in
section 4.4.
Typical display of the Analog Output values is shown in
figure 11.

The screens will be formatted as shown, where # in the title
is the number of the AI Block (1, 2, 3, 4, or 5) and mmmm
is one of: “Flow”, “Mass”, “Temp”, “NRTot”, “RTot”, “----”
depending on the value of the associated AI Block’s Channel
parameter.
• For example, “AI1 Out-Flow” will probably be the most
commonly used AI Out screen
• “AI2 Out----” would be displayed when the channel value
is 0 [uninitialized] for AI Block 2.

Figure 12
There may be differences in the AI value in the Analog
Input Block and the IT value in the Integrator Block compared to the values shown on the TA2 display. Primary reason for this difference is the time when the data was
acquired.
In order to provide indication that the Function Block is
not executing and/or to avoid displaying a possibly stale
value, the second row will be blank if the Block Error
parameter in a configured Function Block is indicating Out
Of Service, a block configuration error, or input failure. The
second row on an AI Out screen or IT Out will also be
blank if the unit has not been assigned a permanent address,
or if the associated Function Block has not been configured
and scheduled for execution.
The Out Scale units abbreviations will be displayed only
when the Output Scale Units Abbreviation is “%” or one of
the flow, mass, temperature, or totalizer units supported for
local display.

Diagnostic Parameters
The Model TA2 measurement engine runs through a series
of self-tests and will detect and report faulty operation.
The TRANSDUCER BLOCK displays these faults in the
DEVICE_STATUS parameter. Refer to Section 5.2.1.4 for
more information on specific faults and warnings.
BLOCK_ERROR is not used except for indicating Out of
Service (OOS).
When the Model TA2 is initially powered on, the measurement engine does not have enough valid measurement cycles
to make a decision about the output value. For the first few
seconds after power is applied, the FLOW_STATUS/QUALITY
is “Uncertain,” the SUB_STATUS is “Initial value,” and the
LIMIT attribute is “Constant.”
When the Model TA2 is operating properly, the
FLOW_STATUS/QUALITY is shown as “GOOD,” and
the SUB_STATUS is “Non-Specific.”
While changing the transmitter operational parameters using
the local display or through the 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 flow but
the QUALITY will be shown as “Bad” and the SUB_STATUS
is “Out of Service.”
When the Enhanced Model TA2 measurement cycle fails to
find a valid output value, the transmitter maintains the last
good value as the output and flags the failure. The LIMIT
attribute is the same as the last good measurement.
If the Model TA2 fails to find a measurable signal, the
TRANSDUCER BLOCK maintains the last good value as
the output and flags the failure. The QUALITY is “Bad,”
the SUB_STATUS is “Sensor failure” for no flow (or
“Device failure.”
Refer to Section 5.2.1.4 for additional information.

5.1.1 Accessing the Simulation Jumper
To access the simulation jumper:
1. Remove the cover to the electronics display.
2. Remove the display module by removing the two retaining
screws.
3. To enable simulation, place jumper at J3 across the two
pins.To disable simulation, place jumper at J3 on one pin
only.

NOTE: Do not remove the jumper at position J2. The J2 jumper is used
in a diagnostic test; see section 5.3.1.
4. Reassemble the display module and cover.
NOTE: A BLOCK_ERR of “Simulation Active” in the Resource Block
does not mean simulation is active—it merely indicates that
the simulation (hardware) jumper is placed to enable simulation. See section 4.2.2 for instructions to mask this block error.

on the rotating screen in the Home menu. These screens
capture only current conditions. Historic diagnostic information can be viewed in the HISTORY screen of the
Diagnostics Menu.
FAULT: The highest level in the hierarchy of diagnostics.
A Fault indicates a defect or failure in the circuitry or software, or a calibration condition that makes reliable measurement impossible. Further error information can be
obtained by reviewing the Diagnostic Menu screens.
WARNING: This is the second level in the hierarchy of
diagnostics. A Warning indicates conditions that are not
fatal but may affect the measurement. A message will
appear on the Home (rotating) screen when a Warning is
detected but will not affect the output current. Further
error information can be obtained by reviewing the
Diagnostic Menu screens.
INFORMATION: This is the lowest level in the hierarchy
of diagnostics. Information messages are for conditions
that provide operational factors that are not critical to the
measurement. Further error information can be obtained

The amount of current flowing to the heater is displayed
under Diagnostics/Heater Setting. This value can be verified by connecting a multi-meter across the Heater Bypass
terminals (J2) shown in figure 13. This board can be
accessed by opening the cover and removing the display
module. See Figure 14.
The measured value should match the value shown on the
display. Any difference between the two values indicates
that the heater calibration is incorrect. If the heater circuit
is open, a nominal current value will be displayed, but the
measured current will be zero.
5.3.2 Zero Power Test
J2 Heater Test
Figure 14
This test checks that the resistances of the RTDs have not
changed. The heater is turned off and the temperature difference between the two sensors is compared. The test
should be performed in a water bath (preferred) or under
flowing conditions. Conducting this test in still air will
cause the test to time out and provide inconclusive results.
The temperature difference between the two sensors is
displayed. Typical values will match within 0.15 °C.
Temperature difference may be as high as 0.5 °C depending upon test conditions. If greater than this value, contact
the factory as drift in the RTDs may have occurred.
5.3.3 Calibration Verification Procedure
The TA2 measures heat transfer. These procedures are
designed to permit the user to verify the calibration by
checking the heat transfer characteristics of the sensor. If
the heat transfer characteristics are approximately the same
when the test is conducted compared with when the same
data was collected at the factory during the initial calibration,
the unit remains in calibration.
58
54-650 Thermatel® Model TA2 Transmitter - FOUNDATION fieldbus™
The procedure is performed under two different sets of
conditions. Both tests should be conducted at “room
temperature,” approximately +21 °C to +30 °C (+70 °F to
+85 °F).
Low Flow Validate—Simulates a low flow condition.
i. Cover sensor tips to isolate from air currents. During
the test, the heater power is set and the Delta T
(temperature difference) between the two RTDs is
measured.
ii. After completion of the test, the value of the temperature difference measured during the test is compared
against the previously stored value. (This value can
also be compared with the initial calibration found
on the original calibration certificate.)
iii. The value from the test should compare with the
stored (or original calibration value) within 1.5 °C.
This variation in part due to potential variations of
the ambient temperature during the test and differences in test methods.
Figure 15
High Flow Validate—Simulates a high flow condition.
i. Support the TA2 vertically in a water bath. See
Figure 15. During the test, the heater power is set
and the Delta T (temperature difference) between
the two RTDs is measured.
ii. After completion of the test, the value of the temperature difference measured during the test is compared
against the stored value. (This value can also be compared with the initial calibration found on the original
calibration certificate.)
iii. The value from the test should compare with the
stored (or original calibration value) within 1.5 °C
This variation in part due to potential variations of
the ambient temperature during the test and differences in test methods.
If the temperature difference measured during the test is
greater than the recommended temperature difference
indicated above in item “iii”, then the overall accuracy of the
TA2 may be affected. Contact MAGNETROL Technical
support.

6.3 Replacement Calibration
6.3.1 RTd Calibration
If either the probe or the processor board is replaced in the
field, calibration of the RTDs in the probe will return the
TA2 to like-new performance.
NOTE: If this procedure is not followed, the accuracy will be affected;
however, very repeatable flow measurements will be obtained.
Locate the sensor vertically in a water bath with an accurate temperature sensor directly adjacent to the probe tips.
It is preferable that the water is stirred during the calibration to ensure the TA2 pins and temperature probe are at
the same temperature. Using the keypad and display, select
“Factory Config\Probe Params\Probe Temp Calib” and
then press the Enter key. The device will dynamically display the To/Fo readings over a period of time. After 3 minutes, and if the readings are stable enough, the display
automatically changes to request entry of a password (126)
followed by the ambient water temperature. After the temperature is entered, the device will display if the calibration
is OK. The device then automatically resets itself for normal operation.
6.3.2 Set Point Adjustment
A new set point must be calculated to complete the reconfiguration.
1. Place the probe in ambient temperature air where there is
no flow across the sensor. This can be accomplished by
wrapping the sensor tip with a piece of paper.
2. Go into Diagnostics ’ Signal. Allow time for the signal
to stabilize to within ±1 mW and record the new signal.
3. Calculate a new set point by using the following formula:
New set point = set point x (zero flow signal ÷ new signal)
If replacing the probe, use the set point and zero flow signal (ZFS) shown on the new calibration certificate that
came with the probe.
If replacing the processor board, use the set point and ZFS
on the original calibration certificate. If the original calibration certificate is not available, contact MAGNETROL
with the serial number of the unit found on the nameplate.
New signal is the value measured under step 2.
NOTE: If the TA2 is calibrated for a gas other than air, there are two
ZFS values on the certificate. One is for air and the other is for
the particular gas. Use the ZFS for air when making the
adjustment in air.
4. Enter this new set point into the TA2 instead of the value
on the calibration certificate under Factory Config ’ Cal
Parameters A ’ Set Point.
62
54-650 Thermatel® Model TA2 Transmitter - FOUNDATION fieldbus™
5. Return to the signal screen, similar to step 2, ensuring there
is no flow over the sensor. The signal value should now agree
with the original ZFS within 1%. If desired, steps 2 through
5 can be repeated.
6.4
Flow Recalibration
Calibration of the TA2 requires a flow bench or other method
for determining the flow rate. Using this procedure, the user
can re-calibrate the unit himself or use a local flow calibration
facility rather than returning the unit to the factory for recalibration. With an insertion probe, it is not necessary to calibrate in the same size pipe as the unit is installed in. The TA2
has internal scale-up factors which adjusts the data from the
calibration pipe size to the installation pipe size.
Calibration requires the TA2 sensor to be positioned in a test
section; the test section should have a sufficient upstream and
downstream straight run to ensure the formation of a fully
developed flow profile. Calibration should be performed using
the same gas which the unit is calibrated for. Optionally, an air
equivalency calibration can be performed. In this case, calibrate
in air and contact the factory for air equivalency factors and
equivalent air calibration rate.
Recalibration Procedure:
1. Select the set point; this is the temperature in degrees Celsius
which the TA2 maintains between the two sensors. If the
unit is re-calibrated for the same application, then it is probably not necessary to change the original value. If it becomes
necessary to change the set point due to change in the calibration velocity or the type of gas:
a. Record the set point under Factory Configuration/ Cal
Parameters (A or B)/Set Point.
b. Determine the maximum velocity in SFPM which the
unit will operate (SFPM equals the SCFM divided by
the flow area of the test section in square feet).
c. Install the probe in the test section and flow gas that is
equivalent to the maximum velocity in the calibration
range.
d. Using the display, obtain the signal value in mW from
the Diagnostics menu.
e. Calculate a new set point using the formula:
New set point = old set point * (800/measured signal
(mW)). 800 mW is the desired maximum power rating
for the TA2.
f. Enter new /set point in TA2 under Factory
Configuration/Cal Parameters (A or B) Set Point.
2. Convert the flow rate in the application to the flow rate in
the test section using the formula:
Flow in test section = application flow * (flow area of test section/flow area of application)
54-650 Thermatel® Model TA2 Transmitter - FOUNDATION fieldbus™
63
a. Allow a flow of a known amount of gas through the
test section, recording flow rate and TA2 signal
(mW). A minimum of 10 and a maximum of 30 data
points including a zero flow value should be
obtained. One data point should be taken at a flow
rate approximately 20 % greater than the expected
operating range. The higher the number of data
points, the better the overall accuracy of the instrument.
b. Convert the flow rate in the test section to mass
velocity in SFPM (Standard Feet Per Minute). This
is equivalent to the flow rate in SCFM divided by
the flow area in square feet. Convert from other units
of measurement as necessary. Use MAGNETROL
STP conditions of 20 °C (70 °F) and 1 Atmosphere
(14.69 psia).
c. Enter the Power and the corresponding Mass
Velocity into the TA2 using the display and keypad
or using the Fieldbus interface. These values should
be entered in increasing order to ensure a monotonically increasing curve.
Note password of 126 is required for entry of calibration data. (Contact MAGNETROL if issues using
this password.)
d. After completion of entry of the calibration data,
check the display for the number of points accepted
(or table length). If this number is less than the
actual number of data points entered, then there is
an error in the entry of the calibration data. Ensure
that the data is entered so the curve is monotonically increasing. The values of mass velocity and power
should always be increasing over the calibration
range.
e. A Fault message will occur if there are fewer than
10 calibration data points in the calibration table.
3. Enter the flow area of the calibration test section. Units of
measurement are the same as selected under Basic Config
menu. This value is used in calculating the scale-up factor
between the calibration test section and the installation.

Reference Information
7.1
Description
The THERMATEL Model TA2 Thermal Mass Flow Meter
provides a mass flow measurement of air and other gases.
The TA2 consists of a probe or flow body with electronics
either integrally mounted on the probe or remotely located.
64
54-650 Thermatel® Model TA2 Transmitter - FOUNDATION fieldbus™
The optional plug-in display module with four-button
keypad permits the user to easily make changes in the
configuration of the TA2 for application-specific conditions.
The display provides an indication of the mass flow,
temperature and totalized flow, plus other selectable
information.
Each instrument is calibrated and configured by
MAGNETROL for the type of gas, pipe size, flow area and
flow rate. Calibration is performed in a NIST traceable
flow bench.
The TA2 provides real-time temperature compensation
which adjusts the flow measurement due to changing gas
properties caused by process temperature changes.
7.2
Theory of Operation
The flow element of the TA2 Thermal Mass Flow Meter
utilizes a heater and two resistance temperature detectors
(RTDs). The heater and the active RTD are contained in
one sensor. The second sensor contains the reference RTD
and a mass balancing element.
The reference RTD measures the temperature of the
process where the flow element is installed. A variable
power is provided to the heater. The active RTD measures
the temperature of the heated sensor in a feedback loop to
the electronics. The electronics vary the power to the
heater to maintain a constant temperature difference
between the active and reference RTDs. As the mass flow
rate increases there is a cooling effect on the heated sensor.
The power to the heated sensor is controlled to maintain a
constant temperature difference between the two sensors.
The amount of power required to maintain this temperature
difference provides a measurement of the mass flow.
There is an inherent non-linear relationship between
heater power and the mass flow rate. The microprocessor
based electronics convert the heater power to provide a
linear measurement of the mass flow rate. The electronics
also provide real time temperature compensation which
automatically adjusts the flow measurement for changes
in process temperature over the entire operating range of
the instrument.
The temperature measured by the reference RTD and the
totalized flow can be viewed on the display, and is also
available from the Fieldbus interface.

Portable display module
A portable display module for configuration and diagnosis of multiple units is
available (code 089-5219-002). This portable module plugs into the electronics in the same manner as the normal display and uses the same software
menu. This module permits the user to reduce installation cost by having one
display module with keypad for multiple TA2 units.
Usage of the display module requires that the housing cover be removed during use and thus may not be useable in hazardous areas. In these cases, the
HART® option should be utilised.

Appendix B
The flow measurement of the TA2 assumes that the end
of the probe is 25 mm (1”) past the centreline and the
presence of a fully developed flow profile. See figure A.
As gas flows in a pipe or duct, the flow profile will change
with obstructions and changes in flow direction. As the
gas flows around an elbow, the momentum causes the
gas velocity on the outside of the elbow to increase and
the velocity on the inside to decrease. See figure B.
RD = 3,000,000
RD = 4,000
Figure A
Figure B
Turbulent flow profile
Flow profile following
single elbow
Figure C indicates the minimum recommended straight run distances required to obtain the desired fully developed flow profile. If these straight-run distances are not available, the overall accuracy of the flow measurement will be affected; however,
the repeatability of the measurement will be maintained.
The user has the ability to enter correction factors to compensate for non-ideal flow profile conditions.

Appendix B (continued)
Conditioning plates
Flow conditioning plates may be provided in applications
where limited straight run is available. Plates are available in
flow body type sensor designs (TFT) from 1.5" to 4" pipes.
Plates may be purchased separately for pipe sizes 4" to 12"
when using insertion probes (TXR).
The plate should be installed 2-5 diameters downstream of the
nearest obstruction, change in pipe inside diameter or change
in flow direction. For TXR designs, the insertion probe can be
installed 8 pipe diameters downstream of the plate with 5
diameters required downstream of the TXR. For TFT designs
with the plate at the entrance, the downstream is provided in
the length of the TFT.
Plates are to be fitted with gaskets (customer supplied) in
between flanges. If plates are not included and recommended
straight run is not adhered to, the TA2 will provide repeatable
measurement and the installation factors can be utilized.

IMPORTANT
SERVICE POLICY
Owners of Magnetrol products 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. Magnetrol International will repair or replace the control, at no cost to the purchaser, (or owner) other than transportation cost if:
a. Returned within the warranty period; and,
b. The factory inspection finds the cause of the malfunction to be defective material or workmanship.
If the trouble is the result of conditions beyond our control; or, is NOT covered by the warranty, there will be charges for labour 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.
No claims for misapplication, labour, direct or consequential damage will be allowed.
RETURNED MATERIAL PROCEDURE
So that we may efficiently process any materials that are returned, it is essential that a “Return Material Authorisation” (RMA) form
will be obtained from the factory. It is mandatory that this form will be attached to each material returned. This form is available
through Magnetrol’s local representative or by contacting the factory. Please supply the following information:
1. Purchaser Name
2. Description of Material
3. Serial Number and Ref Number
4. Desired Action
5. Reason for Return
6. Process details
Any unit that was used in a process must be properly cleaned in accordance with the proper health and safety standards applicable by the owner, before it is returned to the factory.
A material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) must be attached at the outside of the transport crate or box.
All shipments returned to the factory must be by prepaid transportation. Magnetrol will not accept collect shipments.
All replacements will be shipped Ex Works.
