1.1 INTRODUCTION
The Model 2400 series Vault Gas Monitors
provide continuous monitoring of Methane
(and other Combustibles) and Carbon
Monoxide gas simultaneously in a confined
space to provide safety for personnel and to
reduce the hazard of gas explosion. Two
versions of the Model 2400 are available.
The 2400-01 has a Carbon Monoxide
sensor with a range of 50-200 ppm CO.
The Low CO version, 2400-21, has a range
of 0-100 ppm CO for current OSHA and
NIOSH regulations with the Model 2400.

contamination. The sensors can
easily be replaced without removal
of the monitor from its permanent
mounting. Two of these sensors
are for gas detection and the third
contains
two
separate
thermocouple devices to permit
direct measurement of ambient
temperature. The Combustible and
Carbon Monoxide sensors are
metal-oxide semiconductor type
solid state devices for long life.
The electrical resistance of the
sensors is inversely proportional
to the gas concentration.
CARBON MONOXIDE: This
sensor is specifically designed to
detect carbon monoxide gas. The
2400-01 has a metal-oxide
semiconductor type solid state
sensor for long life with a
calibration range between 50 ppm
and 200 ppm. The 2400-21 has an
electrochemical type sensor with a
calibration range between 10 ppm
and 100 ppm. The sensors are
relatively insensitive to methane.
METHANE: This metal oxide
semiconductor type solid state
sensor is designed to detect
methane gas and other explosive
gases. The calibration range is
between 5% and 25% of LEL for
methane. The sensor is relatively
insensitive to CO.
TEMPERATURE:
Each
semiconductor type sensor is
compensated for variations of
ambient temperature over a range
of 0 to 40oC.

bottom of the enclosure. This
orientation provides protection
Page: 1
The AC/DC power supply is factory
configured for 120 VAC (60 Hz)
operation. An EMI/RFI Line Filter is
provided to filter the AC power line
from high frequency noise. The power
Model 2400 Vault Gas Monitor 2/03
Instruction Manual
supply includes a built-in constant
current Ni-Cad battery charger with up
to one ampere capacity. Batteries can
be fully charged in 14 hours. The six
"D" size NiCad pack batteries will
provide up to nine hours back-up. A 5
volt 0.5 Amp regulator supplies power
to the analog and digital sections. The
battery voltage is constantly monitored
and if it fails, a low battery voltage
signal is generated. The UPS and DC
electronics are electronically protected
against short circuits.
1.2.3. ALARM RELAYS
There are five alarm relays. All are
single-pole double-throw with 6 amp
dry non-inductive contacts at 120/240
volts AC.
FAILURE RELAY: The failure relay
is activated when either gas sensor
becomes defective (open sensor
resistance or no heater voltage). The
failure relay is also activated if both
the AC and battery back-up power
supplies fail.
CARBON MONOXIDE RELAY:
The Carbon Monoxide Relay is
activated when the concentration
exceeds the calibrated threshold setting
(100 ppm CO on the 2400-01 and 25
ppm CO on the 2400-21).
COMBUSTIBLE RELAY:
The
Methane Relay is activated when the
concentration of Methane exceeds the
calibrated threshold setting (5000 ppm
CH4).
VENTILATION RELAY:
The
Ventilation Relay is activated when
either the CO or CH4 gas
concentration exceed their calibration
levels. The common contact of the
ventilation relay is fused with a 4 amp
socketed micro-fuse.
REMOTE INDICATOR RELAY:
The Remote Indicator Relay is
activated when either the Failure Relay
or the Ventilation Relay is activated.
Any of the following conditions will
activate the Remote Indicator Relay
which is normally connected to the
Remote Indicator box:
* Excess Carbon Monoxide
* Excess Methane
* AC and Battery Failure
* Carbon
Monoxide
sensor
failure
* Methane sensor failure.
Page: 2
1.2.4. ALARM INDICATORS
The front panel has one audible alarm,
eight annunciator lights and one test
button.
AUDIBLE ALARM: The Audible
Alarm will sound when either the CO
or CH4 gas concentration exceeds the
respective calibrated threshold levels.
The Audible Alarm produces a
continuous tone of 2900 Hz at 68 dB.
POWER FAILURE ALARM: The
Power Failure Alarm consists of two
lamps; a Power-On Lamp (green) and
a Low Battery Indicator (red). The
Power-On indicates that the +5 VDC
and 8.2 VDC supplies are present. The
Low Battery indicator is activated
when the battery voltage drops below
+6.2 VDC.
CARBON MONOXIDE STATUS
LIGHTS: The three CO status lights
are: Safe (green), Alarm (red) and
Sensor Failure (red).
COMBUSTIBLE
STATUS
LIGHTS: The three Combustible
status lights are: Safe (green), Alarm
(red) and Sensor Failure (red).
1.2.5. TEST SWITCHES
Two test switches are provided to
allow functional testing of the monitor
outputs:
GENERAL TEST: A momentary
push button is provided on the front
panel for testing the operation of all
lamps, three relays (Ventilation,
Combustible
gas,
and
Carbon
Monoxide gas) and the Audible Alarm.
A slide switch is located on the
electronics board to enable or disable
the relay portion of this test. In the up
position (ON), the test will be active.
In the down position (OFF), the test
will be passive. (This switch (SW1) is
located on the left hand side of the
circuit board.
FAILED SENSOR TEST:
An
auxiliary momentary push button test
switch (SW3), located in the bottom
right hand corner of the circuit board,
is provided for testing the Failure and
Remote Indication relays and the
Sensor Failure lamps by simulating a
sensor failure.

4. CALIBRATION INSTRUCTIONS
4.1 FREQUENCY OF CALIBRATION
The manufacturer recommends that the
Model 2400 be calibrated every 180 days.
4.2 PROCEDURE
PREPARATION: Open the door of the
enclosure and locate the two adjusting
potentiometers which are immediately
above the connectors for the two gas
sensors.
Adjustment
of
these
potentiometers raises and lowers the
sensitivity of the respective gas sensor.
Also locate the two LED indicators near the
respective potentiometers. The LED on the
left is the carbon monoxide calibration
indicator, the LED on the right is the
combustible calibration indicator.
CALIBRATION - METHANE: Apply
5000 ppm methane calibration gas at 50
cc/minute to the combustible sensor and
watch for the calibration indicator to turn
on. If the indicator turns on within five
seconds of application of the gas and turns
off within five seconds of removal of the
gas the sensor is correctly calibrated. If the
indicator fails to turn on keep the gas on
the sensor and adjust the potentiometer
clockwise until the calibration indicator
turns on. If the indicator turns on too
quickly and stays on for too long after
removal of the gas adjust the potentiometer
counter-clockwise
to
decrease
the
sensitivity and repeat the calibration
process.
4.3 MAINTENANCE
Except for periodic calibration as described
above, no routine maintenance is required.
The following items may require
replacement due to age and deterioration:
SENSOR: Unplug the failed sensor by
grasping the top of the white plastic
connector housing (use pliers). (Do not
grasp the bottom of the housing which is
permanently attached to the circuit board.)
Pull firmly to unplug the sensor. Remove
the large nut which holds the sensor in the
enclosure frame. Discard the old sensor
and replace by reversing these directions.
With the semiconductor sensors allow the
new sensor to stabilize for at least one day
and re-calibrate.
The electrochemical
sensor on the 2400-21 will stabilize in less
than one hour.
BATTERY PACK:
Disconnect the
battery harness at the in-line connector on
the battery pack. Cut two large "ty-wraps"
and lift out the battery pack. Install the
new battery pack. Use new "ty-wraps to
secure the pack. Plug in the connector.
CALIBRATION
CARBON
MONOXIDE: Apply carbon monoxide
calibration gas to the CO sensor.
Calibration gas for the 2400-01 is 100 ppm
CO at 50 cc/minute and for the 2400-21 use
25 ppm CO (factory standard), or 35 ppm
at 100 cc/minute. Watch for the calibration
indicator to turn on. If the indicator turns
on within one minute of application of the
calibration gas (within two minutes for the
2400-21) and turns off within one minute
after removal of the calibration gas (within
two minutes for the 2400-21) the sensor is
correctly calibrated. Adjust the sensitivity
as described in the preceeding paragraph.
NOTE:
Sierra Monitor Corporation
recommends using the Model 26 Gas
Sensor Calibrator, Model 1200-26.

Model 2400 Vault Gas Monitor 2/03
Instruction Manual
5. INFORMATION TO INSTALLERS
Adjust the voltage using the
potentiometer R35 at the lower left
corner of the board.
5.1 DISCUSSION & BACKGROUND
Field data shows that the Vault Gas
Monitor operates extremely well in the
installed vault.
This is because the
environmental conditions and the monitor
are stable.
4.
Various minor difficulties occur during the
installation and initial check-out due to
major variations in climatic conditions and
due to the inspection occurring very
quickly after the monitor has been turned
on.
Upon initial turn-on the monitor requires a
stabilization period which varies based on
the amount of time it has been stored and
the temperature during stabilization.
Longer storage times and colder
temperatures increase the stabilization time.
As the specified lower operating
temperature of the monitor is 32 degrees
(F) it may not be possible to perform
function checks in assembly areas where
the temperature is below freezing.
Adjustment of the combustible sensor
is approximately the same.
4.1.
Read the voltage at TP5 (one
inch from the bottom of the
board and slightly right of
center) to confirm that the
reference is approximately 2.5
volts.
4.2.
Set the voltage at TP6 (right
side of board and lower than
TP5) at 1.0 volt by adjusting
R52 at the lower right corner
of the board.
4.3.
For Model 2400-01, a rough
functional test can be made by
applying butane from a
cigarette lighter to each sensor
(note that the center of the
three
sensors
is
the
temperature probe and the
outer two are the gas sensors).
When a small amount of gas is
applied to the right sensor the
combustible alarm should go
on within one or two seconds.
When gas is applied to the left
hand sensor the CO alarm
should go on in 15 seconds or
less.
5.2 ELECTRICAL ADJUSTMENTS
The electrical adjustments described below
are temporary adjustments to be used only
during installation or for temporary
adjustment until calibration is performed.
For ongoing operation the more accurate
calibration method described in this manual
should be followed.
1.
2.
Connect the common side of a DC
voltmeter to the ground loop marked
"GT1" on the upper side of the PC
board assembly.
Use the other meter lead to read the
"reference voltage" for the CO channel
by touching (test point) TP4 which is
one inch from the bottom of the board
and slightly left of center.
The
reference
voltage
should
be
approximately 2.5 volts, + 0.2 volts,
for the 2400-01 or approximately 1.5
volts, + 0.2 volts, for the 2400-21 and
varies lower in cold temperature or
higher in warm temperature.
Read the voltage on TP3 located to the
left of TP4 and slightly lower. This
voltage is "0" during a failed sensor
alarm and is greater than 2.5 volts
(2400-01) or greater than 1.5 volts
(2400-21) during a CO alarm. The
correct set-point for a safe condition is
1.5 volts for the 2400-01 and 1.0 volts
for the 2400-21 (25 ppm alarm).
Page: 6
5.
To understand the adjustment
of the unit
the installer can
follow this exercise:
5.1
Read and note the reference
voltage TP5.
5.2
Attach the meter to TP6 to
read the sensor voltage on the
combustible sensor. Note that
while this voltage is above "0"
and below the TP5 value the
unit indicates "safe" condition
for combustible. Record the
TP6 voltage for use in step 5.8
below.
5.3
Adjust the potentiometer R52
so that the TP6 reading drops
to "0". Note that the monitor
is now in "sensor fail".
5.4
Adjust R52 so that the TP6
reading is in the safe range and
apply cigarette lighter gas.
Note that the TP6 voltage
3.
Model 2400 Vault Gas Monitor 2/03
Instruction Manual
increase above the TP5 value
and the gas alarm occurs.
Page: 7
5.5
If 5000 ppm methane gas is
available perform step 4 test
using the calibration. Note
that the change in voltage is
much less dramatic.
5.6
It should now be clear that
TP6 should be adjusted above
"0" to avoid false "sensor fail"
alarms and sufficiently below
TP5 so that the change due to
calibration gas causes TP6 to
go higher than TP5 and sets
off the alarm.
5.7
It is not necessary to repeat the
exercise on the CO side of the
system but the same actions
occur. Usually the voltage at
TP3 is adjusted closer to the
reference voltage than TP6
because the CO sensitivity is
100 ppm for the 2400-01
(compared to 5000 ppm
methane).
For the Model
2400-21 the CO sensitivity is
25 ppm.
5.8
Return the TP6 voltage to the
level recorded in step 5.2
above or re-calibrate using the
correct concentration of gas.

6. SMOKE DETECTOR
6.3 OPERATION
6.1 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The Model 2404 (Figure 3) is a
photoelectric, single station Smoke
Detector which is designed to be operated
in conjunction with the Sierra Monitor
Model 2400 Vault Gas Monitor. The
Smoke Detector contains the detection
electronics, an audible alarm, D.C. power
supply and dry contact relay connections.
Power to operate the Model 2404 is
provided by the regulated DC power supply
installed in the Model 2400. This supply is
backed up by the Model 2400 battery pack.
Prewiring of the internal connector in the
Model 2400 provides dry contact relay
output from the Gas Monitor to indicate
loss of power to the smoke detector or a
smoke alarm.
6.2 INSTALLATION
MOUNTING: The Model 2404 mounts to
a standard single gang or 4" octagonal
electrical box. To access the terminal block
on the electronics board use a small
jewelers screwdriver to depress the cover
release tab and open the hinged cover.
System wiring fits through the opening in
the back of the smoke detector.
The Smoke Detector is designed to operate
continuously. Monthly, the hinged cover
should be opened and the screen around the
optical unit should be cleaned with
compressed air or a vacuum. Do not use
cleaning solvents. If necessary, water on a
cotton swab may be used for cleaning. The
red LED on the cover flashes periodically
during normal operation.
The Smoke Detector may be tested using
the following procedure:
1.
Hold a magnet, such as the end of a
magnetic screw starter immediately
against the center of the flat indent of
the case behind the cover hinge.
2.
Keep the magnet in place for a
couple of seconds until the selfdiagnostic routine begins.
3.
The self diagnostic routine starts
with a series of 4 to 7 LED blinks
followed by activation of the alarm
relay for five seconds. If the LED
blinks more than 7 times the detector
is too sensitive, if there are less than
4 blinks the detector is not sensitive
enough.
4.
If the LED blinks indicate a problem,
open the cover and dust the internal
components using clean compressed
air. If the test still fails, replace the
smoke detector.
WIRING: Install wires from the large
connector on the gas monitor to the
terminal strip in the smoke detector as
follows (see Figure 6):

7. NICKEL CADMIUM BATTERIES
7.1 NICKEL
OPERATION
CADMIUM
BATTERY
The best maintenance objective is to:
Nickel cadmium batteries such as those
used in the Model 2400 Vault Gas
Monitor are intended for use in
applications where the power demand will
be constant over a long (hours) period of
time (as opposed to a vehicle battery
which is designed for surge demand).
-
Preserve the batteries with maximum
charge for as many years as possible.
-
Be able to determine when batteries
are nearing the end of their useful life
so that replacement can be a
preventative action.
The Model 2400 battery pack is charged
with a very slow trickle charge which
would take 14 hours from depleted to
fully charged.
Once the charge is
complete the current stops but the charger
voltage remains applied to insure full
charge at all times. If the batteries are
stored in this condition and are seldom
used they can be expected to have a
lifetime of three to five years. The failure
mechanism would be a very gradual loss
of capacity so that they may reach a point
where only a few minutes of back-up is
available compared to the nine hours
expected from new battery packs.
To accomplish both these objectives the
batteries should be "deep discharged"
approximately once every six months and
the length of the run time should be
measured. If the run time is less than the
expected length of a power failure the
battery pack should be replaced.
The loss of "memory" is accelerated when
the batteries are used frequently for short
durations (minutes) and then recharged.
When this use occurs the battery begins to
develop a memory which is equal to the
usage time experienced.
Test Points (identified as TP7 and TP8)
are provided on the lower left hand side of
the
electronics
board
to
allow
measurement of the charging current to
the batteries.
This is a voltage
measurement across a .1 ohm resistor.
The charging (or discharging) current can
be calculated in amperes by multiplying
the voltage across TP7 and TP8 by ten.
As it is expected that CEVs would have
reliable AC power the monitor is unlikely
to need to operate on the batteries very
frequently, and infrequent short demands
should not be enough to cause the
memory loss described above.
