The HyDip Documentation Hub

Welcome to the HyDip documentation hub. You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with HyDip as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck.

Specification

The specs for the HTG and HFT devices are:

Feature
HFT

Size
(excluding antennas and connectors and mounting brackets)

172 (W) x 178 (L) x 82 (H) mm

Weight
(without battery)

1700 g

Operational temperature

-10°C to 60°C

Operating external voltage

10 to 24V DC max

Current consumption:

  • Measurement mode

  • From mains external power source (10-24V)

  • Fully charged battery / No battery connected

No sensor connected: 29 mA
VEXT+ = 12V DC, no sensor connected

1 sensor connected: 87 mA
2 sensors connected: 124 mA
3 sensors connected: 165 mA

4 sensors connected: 202 mA

VEXT+ = 12V DC, each sensor (4-20mA) output current 13 mA.

Current consumption

  • Measurement mode

  • From external power source

  • Discharged battery connected

580 mA (for battery charging)

VEXT+ = 12V DC, no sensor connected

<740 mA approx (for battery charging plus sensors)
VEXT+ = 12V DC, each sensor (4-20mA) output current 13 mA.

Current consumption

  • TX/RX (transmit/
    receive) mode

  • From external power source

  • No sensor connected

Ethernet typical 700 mA
VEXT+=12V DC

3G typical 800mA
VEXT+=12V DC
Note: Current consumption varies, strongly depends on reception conditions

Recommended battery

SEALED, RECHARGEABLE, LEAD ACID BATTERY ONLY.

6V nominal, 12Ah capacity

Estimated device life period between charging when powered from internal battery

2 days (sampling once per hour and synchronizing once per day, 1 sensor connected only)

Adjusting either the sampling or the synchronization period will have a significant impact on battery life

A poor 3G/Next-G signal quality will cause the device to operate in a high power, mode for longer periods, which will significantly reduce battery life

External Power input

2 pins of 3 pin connector, 10 - 24 V DC max

12V DC recommended for use in stationary location

Solar power input

2 pins of 3 pin connector, 10 - 24 V DC max. 12V DC (nominal) recommended

Sensor input connectors

4-20mA, 24V max, 4 connectors, each 2 pins

Binary output, latching relay

Open/closed relay contact. 24V DC max, 1A max

Binary input (optically isolated)

Input voltage = 24VDC max

RS485 interface
DA/DB

Galvanically isolated RS-485 communication interface for external devices using HyNet protocol

RS485 interface
PA/PB

Auxiliary RS-485 communication interface for external devices, like HyDip Pinpad

CIF interface

Custom RS-485/232 interface for connecting to dispensers, current loop adapters and converters

3G antenna input

SMA/F connector requires SMA/M fitted antenna

GPS antenna

SMA/F connector requires SMA/M fitted antenna

USB interface

USB-B connector for connecting to PC to configure and monitor HFT device.
