Overview

The TIC InstrumentController provides compact control with a large, clear graphical display, anintuitive user interface and serial communications. The supplied Windows™-basedPC program provides full remote setup, control and data logging functions via theRS232 interface. 
 
TwoTIC Instrument Controllers are available; the three head and six headversions can accommodate 3 or 6 active gauges.

Technology

Windows™ PC Program
The following information briefly describes the functionality of the Windows™ PC Program.
 
Each TIC is supplied with a fully functional Windows™ based PC software interface, which replicates and adds to the TIC embedded control menus.
 
The PC Monitor software enables TIC systems to be configured, controlled and monitored from a single PC:  
  • Control gauge functions such as degas and calibrate
  • Energize or de-energize gauges
  • Access other PC Monitor control functions
The Configuration Manager allows access in order to:  
  • Link gauge channels for pressure control of high vacuum gauges
  • Create, save, and load custom configurations
  • Lock the TIC software configuration or front panel controls
A useful data logging facility is also provided, which saves user selectable parameters to file (in a .csv format) for later analysis using suitable software.
 
The relay interface panel allows the user to:  
  • Link relay channels to any connected gauge head
  • Configure the relay set-point levels for automatic operation based upon sensed pressure levels
  • Manually cycle the on-board set points for manual control of connected systems

Features and Benefits


  • TIC automatically recognizes and controls active gauges including APG100 Pirani, convection, thermocouple, strain, inverted magnetron, wide range and active ion gauges. To enable complete integration into PC and PLC controlled processes, all TIC variants include RS232 and RS485 interface.
  • TIC has six pressure related set points, which operate open collector outputs rated at 24 V d.c. 50 mA. Using the optional relay boxes, these may be linked to 250 V a.c. changeover relays (dry non conductive atmosphere only) to provide a useful accessory control capability. All relay boxes include a logic bypass facility for further system integration.
  • In most instances, TIC systems may be simply and quickly configured using the range of standard cables on offer, there is therefore no need for the customer to prepare loom assemblies or relay boxes and special interfaces
  • TIC includes lookup tables for a range of commonly encountered process gasses (N2, He, Ar, CO2, Kr & Ne). Selecting the appropriate gas enables direct readout of the correct pressure without the need to apply conversion factors.
  • TIC is packaged in a compact case and may be panel or rack (¼ 19 inch rack 3U) mounted. With the addition of the bezel it becomes an attractive bench-top instrument. The large 128 x 64 pixel backlit graphics LCD and mobile phone style menu system simplifies programming and with a choice of summary screens excellent visibility of displayed parameters is assured.
  • TIC will operate from mains supplies with voltages between 90 and 264 V a.c., and frequencies between 47 and 63 Hz. No user intervention being required.

Interfaces
Analogue output 0-10 V DC – one for each gauge
Serial Interface The TIC has two built-in
communications protocols, RS232 and
RS485.
These may be used either to interface
to a PLC or, using the WindowsTM PC
software package supplied, connected
to a PC for full monitoring and control
of a TIC system.
Set-points 6 set-point (open collector) rated at 24V DC 50 mA can be assigned to any gauge. Use directly or in conjunction with TIC relay boxes.
