GPT 120 FAQS

BLANK
POWER LINE NOISE ISSUES WITH GROUND FAULT PROTECTION EQUIPMENT
Due to the high sensitivity of ground-fault-current detection circuits, it is possible that excessive line noise on the power source wiring can cause an alarm. This can occur in the form of a ground-fault alarm, a stuck-relay alarm, or a ground-fault circuit alarm.

This type of alarm can be caused by switching high-power loads, inductive loads, or any excessive arcing during operation of a contactor that is on the same circuit branch. It may also be caused by extreme levels of RFI (radio-frequency interference) in the area.

1. USE A SEPARATE CIRCUIT FOR THE HEAT CONTROL
We recommend providing a separate circuit for the heat control, which is not shared with other equipment. In particular, any equipment that is electrically noisy needs to be on a different circuit branch and installed a safe distance away.

2. USE AN EXTERNAL NOISE FILTER
The controller’s immunity to excessive conducted noise from contactors, inductive loads, and other sources of RF interference can be increased with an external noise filter. A simple way to provide additional filtering is to route the power supply cable through a ferrite toroid ring, with as many turns as possible. This will further attenuate the conducted RF noise.

One device that works well is the Palomar Engineering Ferrite Toroid Ring model F240-77. This is 1.4” ID and 2.4” OD, material type 77(Figure 1). There are larger sizes and other suppliers of these which also can work. We purchased our Ferrite Toroid Ring from here, but they can also be purchased at many electronic supply companies or on amazon.com.

This should be installed on the power line (source) cable to the controller (e.g. GPT or FPT), and placed near the controller’s housing (Figure 2). If the controller is fitted with conduit for the wiring to the power panel, the toroid can be placed just inside the power panel, at the end of the conduit (Figure 3). Three turns of the entire cable through the toroid are recommended; if more can be fit that will work better – the attenuation of noise is proportional to the square of the number of turns. A larger toroid can be used to accommodate more turns of the wire.

3. ADJUST THE GROUND FAULT THRESHOLD
In some situations, the ground fault threshold can be increased, and this will improve the noise immunity. On the GPT 130 and GPT 230, the ground-fault alarm current threshold can be adjusted from 1 mA to 300 mA, and the default setting is 30 mA. A higher setting will be more tolerant of electrical noise on the power line.

HOW DO I SET UP MY GPT FOR A RTD SENSOR?

The GPT unit comes with a thermistor (two thermistors with the GPT 230) but is also compatible a 2-, 3-, or 4-wire RTD sensor. The diagram illustrates the correct wiring and DIP switch configuration for each temperature sensor wiring scheme. It is important that you also navigate to the Sensor Type screen and select the type of sensor being used. * The GPT comes set up for use with the provided Thermister sensor.

The provided thermistor sensor will work for heat-trace applications where the operating range is between -40°F and 230°F (-40°C and 110°C). For applications that require a larger temperature range an RTD sensor is needed. With an RTD sensor and the GPT 130 or GPT 230 you can accurately monitor and control for temperatures from -99.9°F to 999°F (-73.3°C to 537.7°C). For more information about installing a 2-, 3-, or 4-wire RTD sensor or the provided thermistor consult the GPT 130 or GPT 230 manual or installation sheet.

LEAK RATES AND DUTY CYCLES OF DEHYDRATORS – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Understanding the leak rates and duty cycles of dehydrators

 

The overall purpose of the dehydrator is to eliminate moisture in the waveguide of the transmitter. Moisture will affect the reflected energy and increase the Standing Wave Ratio (SWR) of the system.

Dehydrators deal with moisture in waveguides differently than systems pressurized with inert gasses.

In pressurized systems, the system is sealed, and moisture is kept out by the same seal that keeps the gas in. If the pressurized system develops a leak the inert gas leaks out and moisture can then accumulate in the system.  In most cases, these pressurized systems then need to be re-pressurized to find and repair the leak, then be evacuated with a vacuum pump, and refilled with the inert gas. This can become a long and expensive process.

In comparison, a dehydrator supplied waveguide is constantly having the air in the waveguide replaced with desiccated air and its pressure is varying from the low set point to the target set point. This delta P is the operating pressure for the system.

The operating pressure (∆P) is determined by the wave guide’s manufacturer’s recommended max pressure and the lowest pressure the customer is comfortable with as a minimum to the system. The max pressure is generally dictated by the feed horn window material.

In the NETCOM dehydrator it is possible to set the pressure parameters with four set points, these are:

  1. Low pressure alarm – this is the level at which the unit will present an alarm. This needs to be lower than the low limit pressure
  2. Low Limit Pressure – this is the level that will cause the dehydrator to start the compressor to pressurize the system. This must be at least .1 PSI lower than the High Limit Target Pressure
  3. High Limit Target Pressure – this is the level that the compressor will be turned off at.
  4. High pressure alarm – this is the level at which the unit will present an alarm. This needs to be higher than the High Limit Target Pressure

The difference between the Low Limit Pressure and the High Limit Target Pressure is the customer selected operating pressure (∆P).

Perfectly sealed systems are not only difficult to manufacture but impossible to maintain over time.  For this reason, ETI strives for perfect seals but accepts very small leaks in the system as normal.  Our maximum allowable leak rate on a new system is .04 psi per minute on a system pressurized at 7.5 PSI.  With a dehydrator’s outlet completely blocked off this would translate to a leak downtime of 2.5 hours or more if there is a ∆P of 6 PSI between the low limit pressure and the high limit target pressure.

It should be noted that the leak downtime is dependent on the ∆P.  For example, the same leak rate of .04 PSI will take 2.5 minutes when the ∆P is .1 PSI.

For this reason, it is important to understand the relationship between the ∆P, leak rate & duty cycle.  To do this also requires an understanding of how the duty cycle is calculated and what it means.

The duty cycle is calculated by averaging the time of two compression cycles using the time the compressor is on divided by total time (time compressor on and time off between cycles).  The on time is going to be affected by several variables, but the two most important variables are the volume of the waveguide and the flow rate of the compressor.

There is no hard and fast rule as to what duty cycle you should have on your dehydrator; it is entirely up to the customer to determine what is best for their application.  In doing so it should be considered that once set, a change in the duty cycle indicates a change in the system/ waveguide.  Setting the duty cycle alarm to approximately two times the selected duty cycle will allow the system to give the customer an alarm indicating a problem with the system.

Setting the duty cycle is accomplished by changing the waveguide bleed (normally mounted on or near the feed horn) to allow a constant managed leak of the system.

NETCOM compressors have a flow rate of 10 liters per min so for small systems (1l or less) you are looking at only a few seconds of compressor time for a complete fill and fractions of a second for satisfying the ∆P requirements for operating pressure.

For these reasons, it is possible to have a NETCOM pressurizing a small system with a very small ∆P that will run the compressor every 10 to 15 seconds for a period of a fraction of a second.  At first, this may appear to be an internal leak on the NETCOM but looking at the duty cycle and alarms you will be able to determine that the NETCOM is simply working normally at a 5% duty cycle.

It would be advisable to reduce the duty cycle to as low as 1% for small systems to increase the time between compression cycles. This will also allow the casual observer to feel the system is operating normally without internal leaks or issues.

Another way to accomplish this is, of course, to increase the ∆P on the system slightly if the system will allow it.  Again, the limiting factor is the feed horn window max pressure limitations.

As an example:

 

If a system is initially set to a 1% duty cycle and the duty cycle alarm is set for 2% and after several months of operation the duty cycle alarm is indicated the operator has several options.  He can start looking for the leak, find and fix it immediately or determine that the leak is small enough to not warrant immediate action because there has been no effect on the SWR of the system.  The dehydrator has compensated for the leak with increased duty cycle.  At this point, the operator may bump the duty cycle alarm up to 3%, report the issue and put it on the agenda for future maintenance on a remote site.

Comparing the above example to an inert gas pressurized system the leak would leave the system open to atmosphere and SWR would be affected necessitating an immediate repair.

ETI NETCOM 5G FACTS

A question for you: – Is your company 5G ready?

Civilization is constantly modernizing its network infrastructures to keep up with the growing demands for the creation and exchange of data while simultaneously reducing global latency. In other words, we, as people, are constantly developing and implementing new network systems, allowing us to communicate faster, and from remote places on Earth. 5G is the next generation of network systems. Claiming to increase the speed of some network types by a factor of over 100, 5G will either supplement or obsolete 4G and LTE networks globally. 5G is being rolled out today, right now. More cell phone towers will provide coverage to the entire world. The fact is, LTE is struggling to keep up, and is experiencing more slowdowns than ever before due to our demand for instant information.

Companies like Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile, as well as many other well-known players in the communications industry are already designing 5G modems capable of fitting in your ear, your car, or even in your refrigerator door. To build these systems, and allow them to communicate efficiently, a careful planning process should always be followed in network infrastructure design.

ETI’s Netcom Automatic Waveguide Dehydrators keep dry pressurized air in waveguides so the system is not compromised from outside environmental factors. In other words, we keep complex communications systems operating during rain, snow, and humidity. With many communications companies expanding aggressively into these harsh weather markets, Automatic Waveguide Dehydrators are at an all-time high.

5G networks utilize high-frequency waves that warrant faster connectivity speeds – yet they do not travel as far as their 4G and LTE predecessors. To solve this distance issue, 5G network systems must be built based upon a matrix of smaller more compact cell phone towers that must be closer to each other and the end user than ever before. As a result, network providers plan to build 300,000 new antenna towers. That equates to more towers than have been built in the last 30 years.
