Safety Precautions Refer to Safety Precautions for All Counters. !CAUTION Tighten the terminal screws to the specified torque (approx. 0.5 N⋅m). Fire or malfunction may result if the screws become loose. Do not use the product in locations subject to flammable or explosive gases. Doing so may result in explosion. The service life of the output relays depends on the switching capacity and switching conditions. Consider the actual application conditions and use the product within the rated load and electrical service life. Using the product beyond its service life may result in contact deposition or burning. Do not disassemble, repair, or modify the product. Doing so may result in electric shock, fire, or malfunction. Do not allow metal objects or conductive wires to enter the product. Doing so may result in electric shock, fire, or malfunction. Other Precautions • Store at the specified temperature. If the H8GN has been stored at a temperature of less than −10°C, allow the H8GN to stand at room temperature for at least 3 hours before use. • Use the product within the ratings specified for vibration, shock, submerging in water, and exposure to oil. • Do not use the product in locations subject to dust, corrosive gases, or direct sunlight. • Use the product within the ratings specified for temperature and humidity. • The product is designed for 24 VDC. Applying voltages other than the rated one such as 100 to 240 VAC may damage the internal elements. • Separate the input signal devices, input signal cables, and the product from the source of noise or high-tension cables producing noise. • Separate the product from the source of static electricity when using the product in an environment where a large amount of static electricity is produced (e.g., forming compounds, powders, or fluid materials being transported by pipe). • Do not expose the product to organic solvent such as thinner or benzine, strong alkali materials, or strong acid materials. Doing so may damage the product surface. Application Precautions 1. Do not use the product in locations where condensation may occur due to high humidity or where temperature changes are severe. 2. Be sure to wire terminals correctly, with the correct polarity. 3. Maintain the power supply voltage within the allowable ranges. 4. Connect the power supply through a relay or switch so that the voltage reaches a fixed value immediately. If the voltage increases gradually the power supply may be reset or outputs may turn ON. 5. When the power is turned ON, an inrush current (approx. 15 A) will flow momentarily. Depending on power supply capacities, the product may not start due to this leakage current. The power supply must be of a sufficiently large capacity. 6. For the main power supply or the power supply for input devices, use a power supply transformer whose primary side is insulated from the secondary side and whose secondary side is not grounded. 7. Leaving the H8GN with outputs ON at a high temperature for a long time may hasten the degradation of internal parts (such as electrolytic capacitors). Therefore, use the product in combination with relays and avoid leaving the product as long as more than 1 month with the output turned ON. 7 H8GN Power Supplies Response Delay Time When Resetting When turning the power ON and OFF, input signal reception is possible, unstable, or impossible as shown in the diagram below. The following table shows the delay from when the reset signal is input until the output is turned OFF. Power supply ON OFF Input Minimum reset signal width 210 ms 0 to 50 ms Impossible 5 ms Possible 0 to 500 ms Unstable Impossible Unstable Turn the power ON and OFF using a relay with a rated capacity of 15 A minimum to prevent contact deterioration due to inrush current caused by turning the power ON and OFF. When power is turned ON, a starting current flows momentarily. Therefore, pay attention to the overcurrent detection level of the power supply used. 3.7 to 6.0 ms 20 ms 19 to 21 ms Output Delay Time The following table shows the delay from when the timer value passes the set value until the output is produced. Actual Measurements in N or K Mode Control output Contact output Timer Control with Power Start To allow for the startup time of peripheral devices (sensors, etc.), the H8GN starts timing operation between 210 to 260 ms after power is turned ON (see diagram above). For this reason, in operations where timing starts from power ON, the time display will actually start from 258 ms. If the set value is 258 ms or less, the time until output turns ON will be a fixed value between 210 and 260. (Normal operation is possible for set value of 259 ms or more.) In applications where a set value of 258 ms or less is required, use start timing with signal input. Output delay time 1 ms Max. counting speed Output delay time* 30 Hz 17.3 to 18.9 ms 5 kHz 3.5 to 5.2 ms *The variation in delays is due to different modes and conditions. Mounting Tighten the two mounting screws on the Adaptor. Tighten them alternately, a little at a time, so as to keep them at an equal tightness. Adaptor When the H8GN is used with power start in F mode (i.e., accumulative operation with output on hold), there will be a timer error (approximately 100 ms each time the H8GN is turned ON) due to the characteristics of the internal circuitry. Use the H8GN with signal start if timer accuracy is required. Waterproof packing Panel Using the Prescale Function The count will become incorrect if the prescale value is not set correctly. Check the setting to be sure it is correct. Changing the Set Value In Counter Operation When changing the set value during operation, the output will turn ON if the set value equals the present value. The H8GN’s panel surface is water-resistive (conforming to NEMA 4X (indoors) and IP66). In order to prevent the internal circuit from water penetration through the space between the Counter and operating panel, attach a rubber packing (provided with the H8GN) between the Counter and operating panel and secure the rubber packing with the Flush-mounting Adaptor. In Timer Operation When changing the set value during operation, if the set value is changed in so that the conditions below are satisfied, the Timer operates in the same way as when the present value reaches the set value because a constant read-in system is in use. Depending on the output mode, this may result in output turning ON. Timer mode UP: Present value ≥ set value Timer mode DOWN:Elapsed time ≥ set value (Present value = 0) Output The SPDT (single-pole, double-throw) consists of an SPST-NO contact and an SPST-NC contact. Do not form a circuit with 3-point short-circuit (power short-circuiting with arc). Note: When in DOWN mode, the amount set value is changed is added to or subtracted from the present value. Operation with a Set value of 0 Short-circuit current Power supply In Counter Operation The output will turn ON if the set value (0) equals the present value. The output will be OFF while the Reset Key is pressed or the reset input is ON. In Timer Operation a) When the output mode is set to A, B (one-shot output), D, or F, output will turn ON when the start signal is input. Reference b) When the output mode is set to B (hold output), E, or Z, output will remain OFF even when the start signal is input. For details about communications functions, refer to H8GN Preset Counter/Timer User’s Manual (Cat. No. M066). 8 H8GN Operating Procedures ■ Initial Setup The and Keys are used to switch between setup menus, and the amount of time that you hold the keys down for determines which setup menu you move to.
