Monoxor Plus Manual
Overview
CAUTION: This analyzer is not intended to be used on a
continuous basis.
CAUTION: Do not store instrument or its sensors with solvents or
products that contain solvents.
CAUTION: Except for sensor and battery replacement, this
analyzer should only be opened and/or serviced by authorized
Bacharach personnel. Failure to comply may void the warranty.
HAZARDOUS AREA WARNING: This instrument has not been
designed to be intrinsically safe for use in areas classified as
hazardous locations. For your safety, DO NOT use it in hazardous
(classified) locations.
CAUTION: Do not use flammable or combustible substances (like
carburetor fluid used for cleaning the probe) near an open flame.
CAUTION: When the instrument is used in an inefficient oil-fueled
appliance where there is a high emission of soot, the probe’s
sample filter may become clogged. Before every use check the
filter to confirm it is clean or replace it with a new filter.
To prevent soot intake and a clogged filter, a smoke test should be
performed before operating under such conditions. This ensures
that the furnace or boiler is burning at a level appropriate for the
use of this instrument.
1.4. Product Overview
The Monoxor Plus is a portable hand-held carbon monoxide analyzer for use
in residential and light commercial applications. It is intended to be used by:
•
•
•
•
HVAC contractors
home inspectors
maintenance personnel
safety inspectors
to detect and display concentrations of carbon monoxide (CO) gas between
0 and 2000 ppm. The analyzer is capable of testing for CO in both ambient
room air and in the flue-gas stream of fossil-fuel fired furnaces and boilers.
A backlight enables the operator to read the display in dimly-lit areas. The
displays and menus are available in multiple languages (English, French and
Spanish).

Monoxor Plus Manual
Overview
The analyzer detects and displays the presence of CO by first drawing in a gas
sample from the area being tested by the analyzer’s built-in motorized pump.
The gas sample is next directed into a sensor chamber where the sample is
analyzed for the presence of CO. If CO is detected, the CO ppm level is given on
the analyzer’s main display. A trending screen (accessible from the RUN
screen by using the right or left arrow key) shows dynamic CO levels graphed
over a programmable time period (from 30 seconds to 15 minutes). In addition
to the visual notifications, you can set a CO alarm limit, above which an audible
alarm buzzer will beep repeatedly. An audible alarm with a slower beep
frequency occurs when the batteries are low.
A permanent record of the detected CO level, along with the current time and
date, can be made by using the optional wireless IrDA printer. Test records can
also be saved in memory.
The Monoxor® Plus can calculate a differential temperature based on two
sampled temperatures (T1 and T2). After you take the two sample readings,
the differential value (T1-T2) is calculated, optionally saved in memory,
displayed on the main run screen, and is shown on printouts.
An ambient CO feature takes approximately 15 minutes to complete and
provides a minute-by-minute snapshot of CO readings, as well as a “Max CO”
value that represents the highest CO reading measured during the entire test.
Results can be saved to memory and/or printed. Use the optional CO
Appliance Kit (P/N 0024-8555) to perform an ambient CO measurement.
A calibration reminder can be set to occur every 6, 8, 10, 12, or 15 months after
the last calibration. (Select “Never” to disable this feature.) Regular calibration
periods of 6 months to 1 year are recommended. The calibration reminder
value sets a time period after which the analyzer displays a calibration
reminder message during warm-up.
To avoid the need for manual CO sensor calibrations, the B-Smart® Sensor
program is supported with the Monoxor Plus. After enrolling in the program,
pre-calibrated replacement B-Smart® CO sensors are shipped at predetermined intervals of your choice.
•
•
•
Choose a program start date that best suites your needs.
Receive a pre-calibrated B-Smart® sensor.
Return your old sensor in a returnable, pre-labeled container.
Benefits include no downtime, self calibration, convenience, and cost savings.
For additional information about the B-Smart® Calibration Program, contact
Bacharach at 1-800-736-4666 or email Help@MyBacharach.com.

Monoxor Plus Manual
Overview
A programmable inactivity timeout causes the analyzer to initiate shutdown
mode if no key presses occur for the specified time period. If the analyzer
initiates automatic shutdown or is turned OFF manually while a high level of CO
is still present within the unit, the automatic CO purge feature forces the
analyzer’s pump to remain on until the detected CO level drops below 50 ppm.
The instrument is supplied with the following components:
•
•
•
•
probe and hose assembly
four disposable “AA” alkaline batteries

4.6. Taking Differential Temperature Measurements
In certain combustion applications, it may be desirable to have a differential
temperature measurement. Use the Diff Temp menu and either the optional
probe assembly with thermocouple (P/N 0019-7111), or one of the optional KType thermocouples (P/N 0104-1798 or P/N 0104-1797) to accomplish this
task.
The Monoxor Plus calculates the differential temperature based on two
sampled temperatures (T1 and T2) which it reads from the optional probe
assembly’s thermocouple (which is connected to the T-STACK connector of the
instrument). After you take the two sample readings, the differential value
(T1-T2) is calculated, optionally saved in memory, displayed on the main run
screen, and is shown on printouts. Use the following procedure to perform a
differential temperature measurement.
Step
Example Procedure for Taking Differential Temperature Measurements
1
Attach the thermocouple plug of the optional probe assembly to the

T-STACK connector on the bottom of the Monoxor Plus.
2
From the Main Menu, select the Diff Temp option. When this option is
first selected, the current temperature (Temp) is displayed. Values for T1
and T2 will show no readings until they are saved by the operator, after
which a differential value (T1-T2) will also be displayed.
3
With T1 highlighted, position the probe at desired location #1.
4
After a T1 temperature reading is displayed and stabilizes, press the F3
(SAVE) button to store the current T1 temperature reading. The T2
temperature reading is highlighted.
5
Move the probe to desired location #2.
6
After a T2 temperature reading is displayed and stabilizes, press the F3
(SAVE) button to store the current T2 temperature reading.

5.6. CO Sensor Calibration
5.6.1. Materials Required
•
•
Calibration kit, P/N 0024-7059
Gas cylinder: 500 ppm CO in air, P/N 0024-0492
5.6.2. CO Manual Zero Procedure
The CO zeroing process is done automatically during warm-up or manually
using the manual zero feature (see page 25). To perform a manual zero, follow
the steps below. If your instrument is configured for CO auto zero, then skip
this CO manual zero procedure and go to the CO Sensor Span procedure that
follows.
Step
Manual CO Zero Procedure
1
If not already done, turn ON the analyzer and display the Main Menu screen.
2
Use the UP () and DOWN () arrow buttons to select the SETUP menu and
press ENTER.

From the CO Zero Setting screen, use the DOWN () arrow button to select
the Manual Zero option then press ENTER. A reminder screen to place the
instrument in fresh air is displayed.
5
Press ENTER and wait for the manual zero to complete.
5.6.3. CO Sensor Span Procedure
Step
CO Span Procedure
1
From the Calibration Menu (see page 27), use the UP () and DOWN ()
arrow buttons to highlight CO, and then press ENTER to display the
CALIBRATE CO screen. This requires password validation (see page 27).
“Measured” is the current CO reading, while “Applied” is a known CO level
that will be applied for calibration purposes.
2
Use the UP (), DOWN (), LEFT (), and RIGHT () arrow buttons to enter
an Applied value that exactly equals the concentration stamped on the CO
cylinder.
NOTE: Bacharach recommends using a 500 ppm calibration gas,
however the calibration range is from 20 to 1,000 ppm. An attempt
to calibrate outside this range will cause the message “Applied
Value High” (or Low) to appear at the bottom of the screen.

Calibration and Maintenance
Step
CO Span Procedure
3
Attach a 500 ppm CO cylinder to the regulator and connect calibration kit
components as shown below. Apply 500 ppm carbon monoxide in an air
balance calibration gas.
4
Wait until the Measured reading stabilizes and then press ENTER. The
message “Good Calibration” should briefly appear.
If the sensor’s output is low, but still usable, then the message “Good
Calibration WARNING Low Sensor” will appear. The sensor will now be
marked as being Low in the Warm-up screen.
If the sensor’s output is too low to be usable, then the message “Bad
Calibration Sensor End of Life, Entry Not Saved” will appear.
5
Close the regulator and remove the CO cylinder.
5.7. T-Ref Sensor Calibration
The T-Ref sensor is located inside the instrument. Calibration is done at the
factory and should not need to be done in the field.

• CO sensor was not zeroed at warm-up because of high output.
Run instrument on fresh air then restart instrument to re-zero
sensor. If the message persists, the CO sensor may need to be
replaced.
• Temperature sensors are measuring temperature outside the
range of -4° to 212° F at warm-up. Make sure that the
thermocouple is sampling ambient room air within the
temperature range at warm-up.
• Messages will indicate which sensors are in error.
Set Clock
Time and date values need to be set in the instrument.
XXX
