Maintenance Manual - MCR3 - AM.07.360e 19


Specifications

The current regulator holds the output current constant by varying the output voltage to the series
circuit. The voltage can be adapted by changing the conduction angle of the thyristors in both the
positive and the negative difference of the input signal.
- The TBM module fires the thyristors at the request of the CCL module.
- The TBM module receives a signal from the remote control system.
- The TMB module gives an output to a certain current level.
- The CCL compares the requested step & actual output current level.
- The CCL computes and sends the TBM a request to generate the required output voltage.

This process will be maintained until no output is anymore demanded or if any of the safety
features are triggered. The regulator stops immediately when triggered by a safety feature. The
safety can only be reset at the TBM module.

Remote control The regulator can be controlled remotely with Multiwire, J-Bus, or a combination of these. The
system automatically detects which communication method is available.

Multiwire (option) Each multiwire PCB consists of input and output terminals. These terminals handle the incoming
and outgoing signals between the regulator and the remote control system. The number of
multiwire PCBs on the regulator determines the maximum number of available signals.

J-Bus (option) J-Bus can be either a single or a dual databus:


- With a single databus, the regulator has only one communication channel.
- With a dual databus, the regulator has two separate communications channels: Bus A and
Bus B. They should take different routes to avoid a communication failure if one cable is
interrupted.

Options The regulator has these optional components:


- Circuit selector (CS):
With a circuit selector you can connect several (up to eight) series circuits to a single
regulator and control them individually.

- Cut-out SCO:
An output disconnecting device between the regulator and the series circuit. The cut-out
SCO isolates the series circuit from the regulator during maintenance or testing operations.
The cover can be locked with a key to prevent unauthorized access.

- Earth Fault Detection (EFD):


Measures the insulation resistance between the series circuit and the ground or the cable
screen. You can set two alarm levels for the measured values.

- Lamp Fault Detection (LFD):


The operation of the LFD is based on the change in the waveform when a series
transformer saturates as a consequence of the lamp having blown at the secondary side.
The accuracy is +- 1 lamp. The LFD module can be used together with a circuit selector,
provided the multiple calibration was installed. It is then possible to calibrate the LFD
module for two or more different circuit settings.

- Hour counters:
Measure the number of hours the regulator is ON, or the number of hours the regulator is
ON and produces output current that is higher than a set value.

Common mode This core blocks the high-frequency common-


choke (wire A02) mode currents from the power circuitry.

Fused input switch The fused input switch disconnects the regulator
(F1) from the mains power supply. For specific fuse
types, see section 3.4 Parts list.

Maintenance Manual - MCR3 - AM.07.360e 21


Specifications

Fuses F2, F3 and The fuses F2, F3 and F4 protect the wiring of the
F4 regulator from overcurrent:
- F2 protects the low current mains wiring;
- F3 protects the wiring to measure the
primary voltage of the power transformer;
- F4 protects the mains wiring of the circuit
selector (option).

Overvoltage The overvoltage protection modules (option)


protection (MOV1A protect the input circuit from overcurrent. The
and MOV1B) system detects all defective or missing modules.

Main contactor The main contactor interrupts the maximum


(K1) input current. It also provides a positive
interruption of the input power circuitry on both
supply lines.

Input The input measurement transformer enables the


measurement system to measure the input current accurately.

22 Maintenance Manual - MCR3 - AM.07.360e


Specifications

Thyristors (THP 1) The thyristors use phase control as a closed


loop regulation system to obtain the required
output current.

Series choke (L1) The series choke limits the current rise time of
the thyristors, the output transformer, and the
current loop. The series choke also limits the
harmonics on the current waveform.

2.7.2 Power output

Output power The transformer has a set of primary and


transformer (T1) secondary taps. The primary taps can adapt to

Specifications

2.7.4 Remote control


The regulator can connect to the remote control with Multiwire or J-Bus or a combination of
these. The system automatically detects which communication method the regulator has.

2.7.5 Multiwire (option)

Description Each regulator has a maximum of three multiwire PCBs connected to the Local Master Controller
(LMC):
- MW1;
- MW2;
- MW3 (for circuit selector only)

Each multiwire PCB has eight input and eight output terminals. They handle the incoming and
outgoing signals between the regulator and the remote control. The amount of multiwire PCBs
determines the maximum amount of available signals.

NOTE
It is impossible to attribute the same function to more than one terminal.

You can set each signal to either POSITIVE or NEGATIVE logic. For example, if you configure an
output signal for function A and if the condition of function A becomes TRUE, the signal contact
closes in positive logic and opens in negative logic.
To read these settings in the configuration tool, see the section 7.3.7 IO menu.

2.7.6 J-Bus (option)

Description The regulator has an option for a single or a dual databus:


- With a single databus, the regulator has only one communication channel.
- With a dual databus, the regulator has two separate communications lines: Bus A and Bus
B. They should take different routes to avoid a communication failure if one cable is
interrupted, for example by an excavating machine.

In order to match the load to the characteristic line impedance, you must terminate the databus
lines with resistors. This creates a reflection-free communication with less disturbances. See
section 6.5 LMC - PCB1513 – 1593.14.111.

Master / slave A regulator is always a slave on the J-Bus. There can be a maximum of 16 regulators on one bus
section with one common bus master.

2.7.7 Back-indication signals ON and REG.ERR

Description The regulator can send basic back-indication signals to a monitoring system. These signals
indicate to the monitoring system if the regulator is ON or OFF.
These signals must have simple, potential free contacts. The maximum contact load is:
- AC - 110 V - 2 A - 220 VA;
- DC - 110 V - 2 A - 60 VA.

Maintenance Manual - MCR3 - AM.07.360e 27


Specifications

2.8 Options
2.8.1 Cut-out SCO

Description The optional cut-out SCO acts as an output disconnection device between the regulator and the
series circuit. The cut-out SCO also isolates the series circuit from the regulator during
maintenance or testing operations. The cover can be locked with a key to prevent unauthorized
access.

WARNING
Always wear protective gloves and shoes when working with the regulator or
series circuit.

2.8.2 Earth Fault Detection (EFD)

Description The EFD module measures the insulation resistance between the series circuit and the ground or
the cable screen. The EFD module works when the regulator is connected to the mains supply,
even if the regulator is turned OFF.

Working principle The EFD module has the following functions:


- A measurement range from 10 kOhm to 0.5 GOhm;
- A high-voltage resistor applies a stable, current-limited voltage of 500 V DC between the
series circuit and the ground or cable screen.

Monitoring To monitor the insulation resistance, the EFD module uses two alarm levels: Level 1 and Level 2.
Both alarm levels can be set to any value between 20 kOhm and 250 MOhm. However, Level 1
must always be higher than Level 2.
For how to change these levels, see section 7.2.6 EFD Earth Fault Detection (option).

2.8.3 Lamp Fault Detection (LFD)

Description The operation of the LFD is based on the change in the waveform when a series transformer
saturates as a consequence of the lamp having blown on the secondary side. It does this by
comparing the waveform with a reference captured during calibration when the user has verified
that all the lamps are connected and working properly.
The LFD can be used together with a circuit selector, provided that the multiple calibration option
was installed. It is then possible to calibrate the LFD for two or more different circuit settings. The
tolerances are:
- 0 - 5 burnt lamps: +-1 lamp;
- 6 - 10 burnt lamps: +-2 lamps.

Restrictions The LFD provides correct measurements if the following conditions apply:
- All lamp transformers are of the same type and rating;
- Reactive and constant loadings are low;
- The cable capacitance towards ground is less than 1µF and is equally distributed in the
series loop. To test capacitance, see section 7.1 Checks and measurements;
- No non-linear lights, such as guidance signs, BRITE, serial-to-parallel adapts or poor
contacts at primary or secondary lamp transformers.

28 Maintenance Manual - MCR3 - AM.07.360e


Specifications

2.8.4 Circuit selector (CS)

Description With a circuit selector you can connect several (up to eight) series circuits to a single regulator.
The circuit selector has two modes:
- Simultaneous: the regulator can connect to a number of the available circuits at the same
time;
- Alternate: the regulator can connect to only one circuit at a time.

Interface board The board converts the logic control signals (12 V DC) that come from the CCL PCB into coil
control voltages. If the regulator has a multiwire interface, the multiwire PCB MW3 serves as the
remote control and back-indication interface for circuit selection.

Fuses (F4) The fuses protect the power supply to the auxiliary transformer. These fuses are located close to
the main fuse F1 and are accessible after removing the user interface panel.

Auxiliary The coil voltage of the HV contactors is standardized to 230 V 50/60 Hz. This auto-transformer
transformer (T1) (250 VA) serves to adapt the regulator mains voltage level to this voltage.

High-voltage Depending on the cabinet size there are two types of high-voltage contactors. The number of
contactors (K1-K8) contactors depends on the number of circuits and can be from two to eight.
For the big cabinet (above 10 kVA) the HV-circuit connects directly to the HV contactor terminals.
For the small cabinet (up to 10 kVA) there are separate connection terminals for the circuit
connection.

2.8.5 Hour counters

Description There are two types of hour counters:


- Counters that measure the amount of hours the regulator is ON.
- Counters that measure the amount of hours the regulator is ON and produces output
current that is higher than a set value.

If the regulator has a Circuit selector, each circuit has its own hour counter.

EFD calibration The EFD shows the insulation resistance of the series circuit on the user interface. This value is
(option) only an indication. To find out a more accurate value (up to 10 000 V), use a specific
measurement tool (Megger). If the regulator has an EFD option, you must calibrate the unit in
order to have this function.

NOTE
We recommend to use the configuration tool to perform this procedure. See section
7.3 Configuration tool software.

In the following procedure, the configuration tool is used as an example. For more information on
how to do this with the local user interface, see section 7.2 Local user interface. If you use the
local user interface, switch the regulator OFF and back ON after each setting.

1. Open the configuration tool.


2. Switch the regulator ON. Use the fused
input switch.
3. Select the menu EFD.
4. Go to section Control commands > ON/
OFF control. Set the parameter to
enabled. See the graphic.

5. Go to section Setup > Startup time.


Change the correct time for the series
circuit. To do this, calculate at least 4 s/1km
of cable if the capacitance is less than
0.2µF/km.
6. Select the parameters Isolation level 1
and 2. Fill in the alarm levels you want to
use:
- Level 1: 2x isolation value. See
section 7.1.5 Insulation resistance.

3.4 Parts list

WARNING
Use only original ADB spare parts.
Using other than ADB spare parts may damage the part itself or the regulator.
This can also put the personnel in danger.

3.4.1 General

Part orders Each part of the equipment has a part number. When you order parts:
- Always mention the part number of the ordered part;
- Always mention serial number, type, power rating, input voltage, frequency, number of
brightness steps, and output current of the regulator. These are indicated on the nameplate
of the regulator. See section 2.5 Nameplate.

For all spare part orders, contact ADB or our local representative.

Recommendations To reduce downtime during maintenance, have one or more extra regulators in stand-by at the
substation. This is especially important at major airports, which have a large amount or
regulators.
Keep spare parts always in stock. For example:
- Fuses;
- Lightning arrestors;
- PCBs;
- Terminals;
- Connectors;
- Fused input switches;
- Circuit breaker;
- Power packs.

All regulators are set to five steps by default. You can change the number of available steps, for
example, for taxi runways.
Table 1 shows the current values that the regulator produces at each step, depending on how
many steps are available. You can set the regulator to use any of the available steps by using
any of the control modes (local, remote or configuration tool).

Example:
The regulator is set to have five steps available. If you set the regulator to use step 3, the current
value is 4.1 A.

WARNING
Do not attempt to do any maintenance work on the regulator unless you have
read and understood all the information in the chapter Safety and you are
qualified to work on high-voltage systems.

5.1 General
The control panel only displays information about errors that are detected by the machine
control. When a critical error occurs, the machine stops automatically. The control can not detect
every error that results in an unacceptable output. The operator has to observe whether the
machine functions correctly.

WARNING
- Set the regulator to local control before you do any maintenance work on
the regulator.
- Switch the regulator OFF from the main switch before you replace any
parts on the regulator.
- Set the regulator to brightness step OFF before inspection of the series
circuit;
- Refer to chapter 1: Safety.

5.2 Preliminary checks


Before you do any adjustments on the regulator, check the following items:
- The communication between regulator and remote control works;
- Power supply to the regulator works normally;
- Fused input switch works normally;
- Input fuses and auxiliary fuses work normally (see MCR3 Maintenance manual);
- All connectors are firmly in place;
- Components are not charred or burned;
- Wires are not broken or damaged.

5.3 Showing / hiding alarms


You can specify which alarms the regulator shows and sends to the remote control. To do this, go
to Configuration tool > IO settings > Warning messages.

6.1 Working with PCBs


6.1.1 Line termination resistors
To prevent line reflections, place line termination resistors (150 to 850 Ohm) only on the modules
that are at either end of the line. The J-Bus and Local bus lines must be terminated this way.
Terminate the Local Bus line on the TBM and LMC modules. For how to terminate the J-Bus line,
see section 6.5 LMC - PCB1513 – 1593.14.111.

6.1.2 LED RUN


Each PCB has LED lights that signal specific functions related to that PCB. For the specific
functions and locations, see the sections below that describe the PCBs.

The PSL module supplies power to the other modules in +12 / +5 / -12 V. If the power supply to
this board is interrupted, its signal (Power Good) goes low in less than 20 ms. This leaves
sufficient time for the CCL to prepare a fast restart without the loss of control data.
This board also provides 230 V AC for the internal 230 V AC components of the regulator. The
input lines have supplementary filters to reduce the conducted emission of the regulator.

The CCL module compares the actual output current and the received brightness step request.
The CCL module then calculates the optimal conduction angle request. The CCL checks the
tolerance of the output current, the overcurrent, or open circuit condition and produces the back-
indication signals. In addition, the CCL also monitors the output circuit and the input parameters.
The CCL module also controls the back-indication signals ON and REG.ERR.

SW1 J-Bus A - This switch handles line termination for J-Bus A. The switch also determines the use of two- or
Line termination four-wire transmission.
Terminating the line at both ends of the databus with straps helps to match the load closely to the
characteristic line impedance. This creates a reflection-free communication bus that has less
disturbances. Set the straps as follows:
- For a two-line system, set only the straps for the line “Transmit / E”.
- For a four-line system, set the straps for both lines “Transmit / E” and “Receive / R”.

NOTE
Make sure that you only place the line termination resistors at the end of the line. If
you set the straps also elsewhere on the line, the signals are weakened. This can
cause the regulator to not function correctly!

Make sure that you only place the line termination resistors at the end of the line. If
you also place other straps, the signals on the line are weakened. This can cause an
incorrect functioning of the MCR³!

6.7 Multiwire - PCB1486 – 1593.13.510 & 1593.13.520 (option)


Each regulator has maximum three multiwire PCBs connected to the LMC unit:
- MW1;
- MW2;
- MW3 (for optional circuit selector only).

Each multiwire PCB has eight input and eight output terminals. They handle incoming and
outgoing signals between the regulator and the remote control. The number of multiwire PCBs
on the regulator determines the maximum number of available signals. You can configure these
signals by using the configuration tool software.

NOTE
It is impossible to attribute the same function to more than one terminal.

For each signal, you can set either a POSITIVE or a NEGATIVE logic. For example, if you
configure an output signal for function A and if the condition of function A becomes TRUE, the
signal contact closes in positive logic and opens in negative logic.
To read the present settings in the configuration tool, see the section 7.3.7 IO menu.

6.7.1 PCB board


The multiwire board delivers a remote control voltage usable to control the relays of this board. It
is protected with polyswitch fuses. This internal remote control voltage is brought to the terminal
block P2:
„ Terminal P2/10: positive pole;
„ Terminal P2/11: negative pole.

The following straps are available:

Table: 24 Multiwire PCB straps


Strap Description
W5 With strap W5 installed, the internal remote control voltage (negative
pole also internally wired to P2/11) is connected to the common of
the remote control line (P2/9).
W6 With strap W6 installed, the positive pole of the internal remote
control voltage is connected to the common pole for the back-
indication signals.

6.8 J-Bus - PCB1502 – 1590.03.490 (option)


In order to match the load to the characteristic line impedance, you must terminate the databus
lines with resistors provided on the LMC. This creates a reflection-free communication with less
disturbances. See section 6.5 LMC - PCB1513 – 1593.14.111.
A regulator is always a slave on the J-Bus. There can be a maximum of 31 regulators on one bus
section with one common bus master.

7.1 Checks and measurements


7.1.1 Input current
1. The main switch is OFF.
2. Make sure that the main power supply is dedicated to that regulator only.
3. Make sure that all connectors are securely in place.
4. Measure the input voltage (V) to the regulator. Use a True RMS Multimeter, current clamp
and protection gloves.
5. Make sure that the input current is compatible with the regulator. Check the regulator
nameplate.

7.1.2 Output current


1. The main switch is OFF.
2. Measure the output voltage (V) of the regulator. Use a True RMS Multimeter, current clamp
and protection gloves.

7.1.3 Switchboard current


1. The main switch is OFF.
2. Make sure that the fuse breaker voltage of the switchboard is compatible with the regulator.
Check the regulator nameplate. Allowed variance by standards:
- IEC: +10 %
- FAA: +-10 %

3. Switch the main switch ON.


4. Measure the voltage (V) of the switchboard. Use a True RMS Multimeter, current clamp and
protection glowes.

7.1.4 Continuity of series circuit


Calculate the continuity of the series circuit. Use the following formula:
Rprim = ρ x 1/s
ρ = 18 x 10-3 Ohm mm2:m

Example
circuit length is 8000m
cable section is 6mm2
Rprim = ρ x 8000:6 = 24 Ohm

7.1.5 Insulation resistance


Calculate the insulation resistance of the series circuit as follows:
- Measure the insulation resistance of the series circuit. Use the insulation tester Megger
500V or 1000V.
- Calculate the theoretical insulation resistance of the series circuit. Use the following
specification:

Table: 1 Theoretical insulation resistance for the series circuit

Item Maximum insulation resistance current (standard:


ICAO, part 5, § 3.9.4.7) [µA]
Series transformer 2
100 m of cable with standard number 1
of connectors

Maintenance Manual - MCR3 - AM.07.360e 115


Appendix

Example: a runway centre-line circuit with 133 light fixtures


- Total length of the circuit is 8 Km;
- Allowed leakage for transformers is 133 x 2µA = 266 µA
- Allowed leakage for the cable is 80 x 1µA = 80 µA
- Total allowed leakage for this circuit is 266 µA + 80 µA = 346 µA
- When you test with 5000 V:
- R >> 5000 V
- R >> 14450867 Ohm
- R >> 14 MOhm

7.1.6 Cable capacitance


Measure the cable capacitance towards the ground as follows:
1. The main switch is OFF.
2. The LFD module (option) is connected to the regulator.
3. Connect a multimeter to the regulator output cable. Use a Multimeter that has an internal
resistance of 10 MOhm. A reading of 400 V DC means that the cable is properly insulated.
4. Disconnect the 500 V DC power cable to the LFD module. The Multimeter now measures
the discharge time of the cable capacitance from 400 V DC to 147 V DC.

If the cable capacitance is 1 µF, the measured voltage decreases from 400 V DC to 147 V DC
(=0.37x400) in approximately 10 seconds.
If the voltage you measure with the LFD module connected is already 330 V DC, the cable
leakage resistance is approximately 10 MOhm. In this case, the discharge time is approximately
5 seconds for a cable capacitance of 1 µF.

Calibration Calibrate input and output measurements for the CCL module.
You must do this every time after you replaced the CCL unit.
When other PCBs are exchanged, a calibration is not required.
When the regulator is in short-circuit, you can calibrate the
regulator only roughly. For fine-tuning, the regulator must be in
full load.
For most values, when you start a calibration, there is first an
offset adjustment. This means that the regulator switches OFF.
Then it switches to the maximum output current and requests
you to enter the correct reading.

Hour counters Hour counters are set to disabled by default. If a CSM is installed, you can enable hour counters
for different circuits.
