【Support Information】List of RoHS

This is a list of recorder and controller products that support the RoHS (2011/65/EU) directive.

Overview:

Taking advantage of sensors already available in your system, you can simply add VJ series signal conditioners or the UM33A Digital Indicator with Alarms to easily build a monitoring system on a PC.

Overview:

Load devices are sometimes used when evaluating (measuring) DUT performance. Depending on the parameter being evaluated, multiple controllers can be employed to control the performance of the load device, but there are also times when the load device uses only one actuator. 

Overview:

The MW100 can be used for measurement and monitoring at facilities that use solar heating and lighting.

Overview:

DAQWORX Data Acquisition Software Suite helps the administrative department collect and monitor data on each section of the factory, including data on the usage of chemicals, gas, and electricity.

Overview:

With advances in process automation comes a greater need for level measurement and control. As pressure on at the bottom surface of a liquid is proportional to the height of the liquid's surface, you can measure pressure using a differential pressure transmitter to detect the level of the liquid, acquire the data on the UT75A Digital Indicating Controller, and use the measurements to control the tank level.

Industries:
Overview:

HART communication is a means of transmitting multiple signals by superimposing long-standard 4-20 mA DC analog signals on digital signals. The figure below is an example of connecting field instruments and upstream devices using HART communication compatible VJA1/H signal conditioners.

Industries:
Overview:

With trends towards lowering power consumption, it has become commonplace to monitor the power consumed in offices and factories. Has it ever seemed that your office buildings and factories consume an inordinate amount of power? If so, there could be something wrong with the voltage or current of the power supply you are using, your building could be consuming too much standby power, or perhaps some equipment is being overloaded.

Overview:

This introduces use of a contact input multiplication/addition computing unit that employs a user program of the MXT computing unit (XJJM.507) on fluid mixture and other calculated measurement outputs from flow meters. The figure below shows examples of connecting various field instruments to an upstream system.

Overview:

In 1973 the ISA (Instrument Society of America) defined 4–20 mADC analog as the standarized signals for industrial measuring instruments, and they are still used today for transmission signals. The following are typical Yokogawa field instruments that utilize these 4–20 mADC transmission signals.

Overview:

Even in the smaller scale, more diversified measuring systems that have appeared in recent years, engineers commonly need to monitor a scattering of instruments over large areas. The following is an example of using the communication functions of JUXTA VJ series signal conditioners to connect to our STARDOM network based production system.

The open collector needs a power supply. Use one within the maximum allowable load. ...
The black knob on the front panel is the screw that secures the main unit. Turn it counterclockwise to loosen, then remove the unit.

Yes. Wire it without using the included resistor.
We have pulse repeaters such as the VJP1, and VJP8.
Because the RS-485 communication on output 2 is reserved for I/O or error status monitoring, it cannot be used to write parameters.

It is shipped with factory default settings. Alarm types and values should be set by the user with a handy terminal or the VJ77 parameter setting tool.
Short with a 250 Ω resistor (rated power of 0.25 W or more). If you don't have a resistor, a simple short is fine.

Yes. To satisfy the performance specifications, you should power the unit for 10–15 minutes.
Please provide information about PCB usage.
(ns-faq-juxta-11068-other)
PCBs were banned from manufacturing and imports in 1975. JUXTA was first released in 1987, therefore they should not include PCBs.

The resistance is 250 Ω (4–20 mADC). However some computing units also have 100 Ω input.
What are the merits of plugin conditioners?
(ns-faq-juxta-11007-select)
They have the following advantages: Because you can separate the conditioner from the socket, panel work can proceed even without the conditioner. You can remove or replace the conditioner simply by plugging a new one in, so maintenance is easy. No n...
You specify it for current pulse input. The resistance you specify depends on the specifications of the transmitter (mainly the rated current of the open collector). The internal load resistances are 200 Ω, 500 Ω, and 1 kΩ, and 0.5 ...
For example, if the specification of the open collector on the output side is 30 V/30 mA, use an internal load resistance of 1 kΩ (with a 24 V transmitter power supply). This results in a 0/24 mA current pulse.
IPTS-68: This is an international standard from 1968 where R100/R0=1.3850 that was used by the JIS from 1989 to 1997, but currently it is not in use. ITS90: An international standard from 1990 where R100/R0=1.3851, and used by the JIS from 1997 to th...

Can I change the range on the VJT6?
(ns-faq-juxta-11005-spec)
No, you can't change the range after purchase. The compact VJU7 model does allow you to change ranges, but this requires a setting tool that is sold separately.
Can I change the burnout operation?
(ns-faq-juxta-11001-spec)
This is possible if it is a microprocessor type converter. You will need a handy terminal to make the change. (VJR6, VJT6, VJS2, MR6, MT6, MS2, and others cannot be changed.)
F and W series: dedicated 3-pin cable D series: dedicated 5-pin cable VJ, J, and M series computation unit: 5-pin cable + modular conversion (E9786WH, sold separately).
If it is a model that allows range changes, it is possible just like from a JHT200. However, the type of cable is different from the one that comes standard, so you will need to purchase another cable. 3-pin cable: model F9182ED 5-pin cable: model F9...
Can I change the range on the MQ0?
(ns-faq-juxta-11004-spec)
No, you can't change the range after purchase. The compact VJQ7 model does allow you to change ranges, but this requires a setting tool that is sold separately.
The input impedance of typical voltage input type instruments is 1 MΩ. By contrast, the allowable load impedance for voltage output is 2 kΩ or more, therefore the maximum number of units that can be connected is 500.
The input impedance of typical current input type instruments is 250 MΩ. By contrast, the allowable load impedance for current output is 750 kΩ or more, therefore the maximum number of units that can be connected is 3.
The F series has 30 steps. The W series has 40 steps. The M/VJ series has 59 steps.
What happens on a "burnout OFF"?
(ns-faq-juxta-11024-spec)
When input is interrupted it reaches ±OVER, but which of these is uncertain.
What are the computation intervals?
(ns-faq-juxta-11028-spec)
On the M series you can select 50, 100, or 200 ms. On the F, W, and VJ series you can select 100 or 200 ms. (The VJXS can support 50 ms.)
It is T9093FL. Note that the VJ socket is built with holes for screws that prevent falling off, therefore an Omron socket cannot be used.
It is T9093FL. Note that the VJ socket is built with holes for screws that prevent falling off, therefore an Omron socket cannot be used.
What is the output on burnout?
(ns-faq-juxta-11023-spec)
When UP, 106% of the output range or more; when DOWN, -6% or less.
The total resistance ≥ zero side resistance + span resistance.
What does response speed **ms(10-90%) mean?
(ns-faq-juxta-11019-other)
It means the time until the output reaches 63% when input is applied in 10 Ω 90% steps.
A 90% response time is equivalent to 2.3 times the duration of a 63% response time.
What does "time constant" mean?
(ns-faq-juxta-11021-term)
In the case of conditioners, time constant reflects the response speed. In terms of a transfer function, it is expressed as OUT=INΩ(1-e EXP(-t/T)). OUT: output, IN: input, e: natural log, T: time constant, t: elapsed time When the elapsed time...
A distributor for the V series (VJA1/H), and a distributor (DA7) and isolator (DC7) for the D series are available.
Overview:

Many signal conditioners have been used on the input and output sections of large-scale distributed control systems (DCSs) for isolation purposes. Recently personal computer-based instrumentation and measurement systems have become popular and brought with them significant functional enhancements.
