• Various plumbing fittings
• Electrical wiring materials
Mounting the System Monitor
The 6280 System Monitor must be installed in view and
audio range of the Point of Sale (POS) terminal so it
can be both seen and heard by the location’s operating
attendant.
The control unit has a 15' cord to allow for proper
positioning. There will be seven, 16 to 18 AWG, 600V,
NEC Class 1 conductors (in conduit) used to get the low
voltage signal sources from the 6280 System Monitor to
the System Monitor Control Box (SMCB) which should be
located near the gasoline pump motor relays.
RESET
PRINT
Figure 1: 6280 Controls and Indicators
When there is a requirement to pump product, the
MOTOR light will illuminate, indicating the vacuum pump
has started. The LOW light will blink on and off for a few
seconds after the MOTOR light comes on until the vacuum
has reached required specifications.
When the vacuum source reaches its normal operation
level, the blinking LOW light goes dark and the green RUN
light will illuminate.
The VENT light will come on any time venting occurs. The
EXCESS light only comes on when the venting is beyond
specifications.
Venting can be due to a number of factors, all considered
normal, and do not in themselves cause a venting failure.
The VENT light may go on a number of times, especially
during a tanker delivery. A continuous or accumulated
venting episode, 10 hours in a 24-hour period, will cause
the alarm to sound.
The alarm can be silenced for 4 hours by pressing the
RESET button on the VENT side of the front of the control
panel. The EXCESS light will go out when the problem
is corrected and there is no longer venting more than 10
hours in a 24-hour period.
Alarm Conditions
The Model 6280 System Monitor can go into three specific
alarm conditions:
• NO VACUUM Failure
• VACUUM Failure
• EXCESS VENT Failure
The failure responsible for the alarm sounding can be
determined by reviewing the 6280 System Monitor “Failure
History” printout. (See the next section)
The alarm can be silenced for four hours by pressing
the RESET button next to the red light flashing under
the VENT or VACUUM headings. When the alarm has
been silenced, the red lights will continue to flash until
the problem is repaired. The alarm will sound again if the
cause of the failure is not repaired within four hours.

Printing Reports
Each day at midnight an automatic printout of the previous
days’ activity will be printed. This will show all the previous
data about run time and will show if any errors occurred
that day. It does not show a history of errors.
To get a history printout, press both RESET buttons on the
front panel at the same time to print a 15-line summary of
the last 15 failures. If there are more than 15, the oldest
line is dropped off and the latest line is added.
Pressing the PRINT button will get an up-to-the-minute
printout of the site summary and current activity. All
printouts should be saved for local authorities.
The 6280 has a replaceable printer ribbon cartridge and
uses standard non-thermal paper. The replacement part
numbers for the paper and the ribbon are:

System Monitor Control Box (SMCB)
The SMBC serves as a junction box for the CB1
relay / CB1A relay socket and the 1005W-4 solid-state
relay. It also acts as a junction box for the wiring cable
supplied from the 6280 System Monitor, the 12VDC plugin power supply, field wiring from the 9800-1 Pressure
Switch, field wiring from the 6275 Vent Sensor Assembly,
and field wiring from the gasoline pump motor relays.
12
19
It should also be near the electrical conduits from the
9800-1 Pressure Switch and the 6275 Vent Sensor
Assembly. Mount the box firmly using screws (not
supplied) through the holes in the bottom of the box.
The CB1 Relay, mounted in the CB1A relay socket, is
connected to the power of the vacuum source and closes
a contact that activates the yellow MOTOR LED light and
usually the red LOW LED, on the 6280 System Monitor.
The RUN light will illuminate and the LOW light goes dark
when the monitor receives the signal from the 9800-1
Pressure Switch, that the proper vacuum level has been
reached within the predetermined time.
With an input signal from a gasoline pump motor relay, the
1005W-4 Solid State Relay senses the activation of any
product pump and transfers that signal to the starting relay
of whichever vacuum source is being utilized at the site.
Refer to the section “Changing Paper / Ribbon Cartridge
Guide”.

SMCB Wiring Instructions
These instructions cover the Healy Systems SMCB used
with the Model 6280 System Monitor. Follow all caution
notices and make sure all power is turned off while making
connections. Make sure all power is on the same phase,
including that of the gasoline pump motor relays.
Note: All Class 2 wiring is being run as Class 1 and can
be run together per the Article 725 of the NEC. The
use of shielded, twisted pair wire (18AWG min.) is
recommended for remote sensor wiring.
The SMCB has some connections already made and field
wiring pigtails already installed. Make sure the wiring is
contained within the appropriate twist retainers. Mixing
Class 1 and 2 voltages is acceptable within the SMCB
only, provided the Class 2 is wired with Class 1 wire and
¼" spacing is maintained.
Wire numbers refer to wiring schematics on page 7 & 8
– refer to it and the instructions below frequently to assure
proper dressing. Multiple conduit openings are available.

The seven wires which run to the 6280 system monitor,
in the front of the store / station, should be numbered in
the field to correspond to the drawing as well. Field wiring
must be run in conduit to correspond to NFPA 70 and 30A
and be of NEC types for Class 1, with a minimum #18
AWG, with 600 volt insulation.
Install a 110 VAC non-switched outlet near the SMCB, for
power to the plug-in 12 VDC power supply. The two wire
(zip cord) output of this unit supplies the SMCB and is
epoxied to the strain relief bushing supplied. There is a red
LED epoxied into the strain relief which indicates when the
12VDC is present.
The Class 1 wires are identified as red #19 for the +12
VDC and black wire #10 for the negative – do not mix the
wire numbers during installation. All connections should
be made using appropriately sized wire nuts. The power
supply is internally fused and cannot be repaired if the
leads are shorted together.
The wiring should be separated and contained within the
twist retainers.

6275 Vent Sensor Assembly
Installation of the 6275 Vent Sensor Assembly
The Healy System 6275 Vent Sensor Assembly consists
of the vent sensor body assembly plus the Model 6275
Pressure Switch. In addition, a +1.5" WC pressure vent
valve is mounted on top of the sensor, with the designation
HPV1.5. This unit is intended for use only with the 6280
System Monitor and must be installed in parallel with the
+3" / -8" WC CARB-approved pressure / vacuum vent valve
P / N HPV V. Refer to Figures 5 & 6.
All wiring must be done in accordance with NFPA 70 and
30A requirements. Conduits must be properly sealed for
hazardous locations, both in the vent area and inside the
building where the wires terminate, per NEC.
If the installation is being done as a retrofit:
Figure 3: 6275 Vent Sensor Assembly
The 6275 Vent Sensor assembly is mounted on top of the
manifolded tank vent pipes below the +1.5” WC Pressure
Vent Valve (P/N HPV1.5).
Two wires (16 or 18 AWG) from the SMCB exit the building
through a sealed conduit. These wires must be 600
volt rated, Class 1 type insulation. They connect to the
switch terminals common (COM) and normally open (NO)
inside the 6275 Vent Sensor Switch. See 6280A Wiring
Schematics 1 and 2 (Pages 7 & 8) for general layout
and installation requirements. These wiring diagrams are
part of the Healy Systems Model 6280 System Monitor
Installation Instructions.
1. Remove the existing P / V valve and replace it with
a tee and short nipple, straight up.
2. Place the Vent Sensor Assembly on top of this
nipple, and connect the wiring as shown on 6380A
Wiring Schematics (Pages 7&8), blue wire to
common (C) and orange wire to normally open (NO).
3. Again using a short nipple, attach the HPV1.5
Healy Pressure Valve to the top of the Vent Sensor
Assembly, being sure to use a UL-classified,
non-hardening pipe joint compound. Use care
and fasten wrench only on the lower part of the
HPV1.5. Turning a wrench on the upper half of the
HPV1.5 will cause damage.
4. Use two eight-inch nipples and an elbow to make
a parallel stand to accept a CARB-approved
+3" / -8" WC pressure / vacuum vent valve.
The 6275 is factory calibrated for flow rate activation.
If testing / calibration is required, note that, due to the
very low pressure involved, the response of the pressure
switch is not immediate. When making adjustments, do so
in small increments and wait about one minute between
adjustments of the screw.

9800-1 Pressure Switch
The Healy Model 9800-1 Switch is UL Listed for use in
Class 1, Group D Locations in conjunction with a Healy
System Monitor. The switch is factory set at approximately
65" WC and should not need adjustment in the field. Refer
to the previous Vent Sensor section for more detailed
information.
Mounting
The 9800-1 Vacuum Switch is mounted on the Stage II
Vapor Return line from the dispensers, usually in a pit or
sump at underground systems outside the building. For
above-ground installations, the switch is mounted near the
vacuum source. Two wires (16 or 18 AWG) from the SMCB
exit the building through a sealed conduit (per NEC).
*Shielded twisted pair wiring is strongly recommended.
Electrical Installation
• The switch should be mounted with the electrical conduit
fitting pointed downward.
• All wiring must conform to Class 1, Group D,
requirements of the NEC, including sealing the conduit
within 18 inches of the connections.
• The wiring must be 18 AWG, 600 V, rated for the service
(shielded, twisted pair is strongly recommended).
• The wiring connections are done on a terminal board
located under the cover with the label. The wires are
connected to the two terminals with slotted screw heads.
Between these two screws is a raised Phillips-head
screw – this is an adjustment screw, not a terminal. Do
not turn this screw.
Two wires coming from the 6280 System Monitor get
connected; one to each terminal, without regard to which
wire goes on what terminal.
At the 6280 System Monitor control box, one wire is
connected to the orange wire (#21) and the other is
connected to the brown wire (#12) going to the monitor.
See Healy Systems wiring diagram 9200-6308 sheets
1 and 2 for general layout and installation requirements
contained with Healy Model 6280 System Monitor.
12
Vacuum Line Installation
There are two 1/8”NPT ports on the base of the switch,
one marked “A” and the other “B.” A piece of ¼” copper
tubing is run from the vapor return line (vacuum) to the
“A” port. This tubing must be pitched from the “A” port of
the switch to the vacuum line allowing gravity drainage of
vapor condensation. Do not allow any traps to occur which
would block the tube if condensation occurs.
Port “B” has a breather filter vent installed. DO NOT
REMOVE. (See Figure 7)
Note: There is a small dead-band in the switch, which
prevents the switch from making contact at the
same number on a decreasing vacuum. Be sure
adjustments are always made on an increasing
vacuum and that the vacuum is allowed to decay
before rechecking the switch point.
9800-1 Test Procedure
CAUTION: Use extreme care when verifying the switching
action.
Use a digital multi-meter set to DC Volts in the 25-volt
DC range. With the Healy Model 6280 System Monitor
connected and operational, a voltage between 3 and 15
VDC should be present without vacuum.
If a failed switch is suspected, use long lengths of jumper
wires to move the connection point to a safe area and
short the two terminals together. If the LOW light goes out
on the monitor, then the switch is defective and will need to
be replaced. This must be done as a complete unit as the
switch element itself cannot be replaced in the field.
Use an explosimeter to assure the area around the switch
is safe. Do not attempt to verify switch using a light bulb
tester. This will blow out the switch element. Connect the
digital multi-meter, one lead to each switch terminal on
the 9800-1.
Install a 0-100" WC gauge to test port located near the
vacuum source. Make sure that there is no dispensing
during testing and that vacuum level is 0” inches water
column. Activate vacuum source by authorizing any nozzle.
Observe the vacuum gauge while the vacuum is increasing
and note at what vacuum level the multi-meter shows “0”
that indicates the switch connection. Adjust the switch
activation point by turning the phillips head screw located
between the electrical connections for the model 9800-1.
Clockwise will cause earlier making of the contact, counter
clockwise will cause later making of the contact. Adjust so
that the switch makes contact at 65" WC as the vacuum is
building.

Max. Vac Err.
Before Alarm
The time allowed for the vacuum to
reach a normal level. This value cannot
exceed the Maximum Errors Before
Alarm number. If it does an audible alarm
sounds. For example, if the Maximum
Start-Up Time equals 15 seconds and
the Maximum Errors Before Alarm equals
3, and if the vacuum does not reach
a normal level on three consecutive
vacuum pump start / stop cycles, the
audible alarm sounds.
Factory set to 15 seconds.
This is how many times the Maximum
Start-Up Time can be exceeded before
sounding an alarm.
Factory set to 3.
Vent Parameters
Vent Test Period
This is the time period that venting is
monitored. If the Maximum Vent period
value is exceeded during this time period,
the audible alarm sounds.
Factory set to 24 hours.
Max. Vent Period
This is the total maximum venting time
period that cannot be exceeded during
the Vent Test Period. For example, if the
Vent Test Period is set to 24 hours and

Figure 14: Location of the “LED” lights on the control panel.
Expose the ends of wires #9, #10* #11, and #12 by
removing the wire nuts one at a time and only as needed
leaving the wires connected to their original source while
testing. Connect one end of a jumper to wire #10* black
wire and follow the guide below for the other end of the
jumper wire and the connections needed to test the
following:
To verify the “LED” lights on the vacuum side of the control
panel follow the instructions below:
1. From wire #10* black, connect the other end of the
jumper wire to wire #9. The “MOTOR” light and the
“LOW” light should illuminate.
2. Tie wire #9 and #12 together, leaving the other end
of the jumper wire connected to wire #10*. The
“LOW” light should go off. The “MOTOR” light should
remain on and the “RUN” light should illuminate.
These connections imitated the CB1 Relay, (located in
the SMCB box), being activated and the 9800-1 Pressure
Switch being activated.
To verify the “ALARM” function for the “VACUUM” side of
the control panel follow the instructions below:
Note: The alarm tests must be separated by at least four
hours, as pressing the reset silences the alarm for
four hours and no fault will not cause it to resound.
1. Disconnect wire #12 from wire #9, leaving wires #9
and #10* connected with the jumper wire and hold
for 15 seconds then reconnect wire #12.
2. Repeat this two more times. (An alarm should
sound)
3. Silence the alarm by pressing the reset button on
the “Vacuum” side of the control panel.
4. Disconnect the jumper wire and rewire system to
original connections.
This will simulate three consecutive starts with no vacuum
present.
To verify the “LED” lights on the vent side of the control
panel follow the instructions below: (SEE NOTE ABOVE)
1. From wire #10* connect the other end of the
jumper wire to wire #11. The “VENT” light should
come on.
This connection imitated the 6275 Vent Sensor being
activated.
To verify the “ALARM” function for the “VENT” side of the
control panel follow the instructions below:
1. Connect wire #10* to wire #11. (Must be left
connected for 10 hours).
Note: To run this test without shutting down a location
for 10 hours, disconnect wire #11 from the 6280
System Monitor to the 6275 Vent Sensor and cap
off the wire from the 6275 Vent Sensor. Use only
the #11wire from the 6280 System Monitor leaving
wire #10* connected to its source in the junction
box.
2. At 10 hours the “EXCESS” light should come on
and an alarm will sound.
3. Silence the alarm by pressing the reset button on
the “Vent” side of the control panel.
4. Disconnect the jumper wire and rewire system to
original connections.
This will simulate the 6275 Vent Sensor venting in excess
of 10 hours.
* Or substitute wire #21 orange wire if so equipped

HEALY 6280 MONITOR TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
APPLICATION:
The Model 6280 System Monitor can go into three specific alarm conditions, “NO VACUUM” FAILURE, “VACUUM”
FAILURE, OR “EXCESS VENT” FAILURE.
The failure responsible for the alarm sounding can be determined by reviewing the 6280 System Monitor “Failure History”
printout. To generate this printout, simultaneously push both RESET buttons. A history of the last fifteen failures will be
printed, along with the date and times of the failures and the number of failures on that date.
The alarm can be silenced for four hours by pressing the RESET button next to the red light flashing under the VENT or
VACUUM headings. When the alarm has been silenced, the red lights will continue to flash until the problem is repaired.
The alarm will sound again if the cause of the failure is not repaired within four hours.
SYMPTOMS: “NO VACUUM” FAILURE
This means the Vacuum source has not achieved a reading of 65" WC or above within one hour of the vacuum source
activation. This failure occurs when the vacuum source, (9000 Mini-Jet or VP500 Vane Pump), has been powered for more
than one hour without the System Monitor receiving a signal from the 9800-1 Pressure Switch.
Possible Causes
Solutions
1. Significant leak in the vapor line, this would also cause
excess venting. (9000 Mini-Jet or VP500)
1. Test vapor recovery lines for leaks. Repair as needed.
