Introduction
The Model 5030i Synchronized Hybrid Ambient Real-time Particulate
(SHARP) Monitor is a hybrid nephelometric/radiometric particulate mass
monitor capable of providing precise, real-time measurements with a
superior detection limit. The SHARP Monitor measures the mass
concentration of ambient PM10, PM2.5, and PM1.0 aerosol in real-time. The
SHARP Monitor incorporates a high sensitivity light scattering photometer
whose output signal is continuously reference to the time-averaged
measurements of an integral beta attenuation mass sensor, as developed on
the Model 5014i Beta. This system achieves heretofore-unattained shortterm precision and accuracy. The SHARP Monitor incorporates advanced
firmware to optimize the continuous mass calibration of the nephelometric
signal, ensuring that the measured mass concentration remains independent
of changes in the particle population being sampled.
The SHARP Monitor incorporates a dynamic heating system (DHS)
designed to maintain the relative humidity of the air passing through the
filter tape of the radiometric stage below the user-defined threshold,
typically below the point at which the collected particles accrete and retain
liquid water. This DHS system minimizes the internal temperature rise by
not heating when sample relative humidity is below the threshold to which
the heater is controlling. As the ambient RH increases above the threshold,
the applied heating is optimized to maintain the RH threshold at the
sample filter tape. The purpose of this heating system is specifically
designed to force the continuous mass monitor to agree with the
gravimetric reference method and the relative humidity conditions to
which the reference filter samples are conditioned. Furthermore, sufficient
flexibility is provided within the firmware to configure the heating
conditions to satisfy global monitoring protocols.
The measuring range of the Model 5030i is 0-10,000 μg/m3.

Principle of
Operation
The Model 5030i is based on the principles of aerosol light scattering
(nephelometer) and beta attenuation (Model 5014i Beta) to measure
precise and accurate ambient aerosol concentrations. The Model 5030i
SHARP aerosol sample pathway is shown in Figure 1–1.

Introduction
Principle of Operation
The SHARP optical assembly senses the light scattered by the aerosol
passing through an 880 nm illumination beam. The nephelometry response
is linear with aerosol concentration; independent of sample flow rate; and a
running one-minute average and dynamic average are continuously
calculated. A relative humidity (RH) measurement is located at the sample
filter-tape assuring a representative measurement of the aerosol
conditioning prior to real-time mass determination.
Thereafter, the aerosol is deposited onto a glass fiber filter tape. The filter
tape will accumulate an aerosol sample towards a threshold value,
whereupon the filter tape will automatically advance prior to reaching
saturation. During the collection of aerosol onto the filter tape the SHARP
Monitor uses the radiometric principle of beta attenuation through a
known sample area to continuously collect and detect the deposited mass.
Additionally, the beta-attenuation chamber measures alpha emissions from
the accumulated aerosol and excludes negative mass artifacts from the
presence of daughter nuclides from radon gas decay to achieve a “refined
mass” measurement. Simultaneous refined mass measurement and sample
volume measurement through a calibrated orifice provide a continuous
concentration measurement of the ambient mass concentration.

Introduction
Principle of Operation
A clean filter spot is introduced by an automatic filter change to the
combined sampling and detection chamber at least every 24 hours, usually
centered at midnight. However, the official filter tape change frequency for
TUV and U.S. EPA testing is for both PM2.5 and PM10 is every 8 hours.
The automatic filter changes are controlled by the instrument firmware
which halts the pump operation, lowers the vacuum chamber plate,
advances the filter tape a fixed length, raises the vacuum chamber plate, and
initiates the pump operation and a zeroing of the sample spot. Immediately
after a filter change, a new measurement cycle is initiated with an
automatic zero adjustment of the mass signal. The filter change interval and
time of day can be user adjusted. Additionally, automatic filter changes will
occur if the mass on the filter exceeds 1,500 μg since the last filter change
or if the flow rate through the filter tape is reduced by more than 5% due
to potentially restrictive particle deposition.
Using the example of PM2.5 monitoring, ambient air is drawn into a 10
micron (μm) size selective inlet which discriminates against 50% of the
particles with an equivalent aerodynamic diameter above 10 μm. This inlet
has been approved previously through prior U.S. EPA designations (RFPS0699-130, 131, and 132) and is also listed within 40 CFR Part 50,
Appendix L as a 10-MICRON INLET (including model SA246b). Further
particle discrimination is achieved by inserting a PM2.5 cyclone between the
10-micron inlet and sample tube. European-style inlets are also available
with the 5030i.The volumetric flow rate at the inlet entrance is 16.67 liters
per minute (1 m3/hour). In addition, the ambient temperature and relative
humidity is measured via a naturally aspirated radiation shield and standard
sensor as part of the volumetric flow control and dynamic heating system.
The ambient particulate is then drawn down a vertically mounted heated
sample tube. The heat applied to the sampe is adjustable to either a fixed
temperature or a RH-threshold at the filter spot. The purpose of heating
the sample is to reduce particle bound water and to decrease the relative
humidity (RH) of the sample stream. This is done to reduce positive
artifact measurement that can potentially occur as a result of condensation
on the filter tape or conditions of elevated humidity. The heater is
controlled by the CPU and the power applied is proportional to the
conditions.
Downstream of the heated tube, is the nephelometer assembly. The
particulate travels through the insulated nephelometer in a laminar pathway
and is introduced to the radial tube upstream of the beta attenuation head.
The nephelometer assembly contains an 880 nanometer pulsed light
source, a reference detector for illumination output control, a hybrid silicon
photodetector, temperature sensor, relative humidity sensor, programmable
PCB, and communications cable.
The nephelometer assembly has six ranges that are automatically selected to
provide the most precise reading possible. During scheduled auto-zeroing

events, a rear-panel mounted zeroing solenoid is activated and HEPAfiltered air is delivered to the nehpelometer, whereby each range is zeroed.
The results of the zeroing are available via display and C-Link read
commands.
At the location where the nephelometer attaches to the 5030i instrument
case, a radial insulated tube joins the sampling tube to the collection
chamber. The particulate is drawn onto the glass fiber filter tape between
the proportional detector and the 14C beta source. Here, the beta beam
passes upwards through the filter tape and accumulated particulate layer.
The intensity of the beta beam is attenuated with the increasing mass load
resulting in a reduced beta intensity measured by the proportional detector.
From a continuously integrated count rate the mass on the filter tape is
calculated. During sampling, the mass on the filter spot is always known
and the rate of particulate accumulation is observed.
A continuous measurement of the flow rate determines the sample volume.
A proportional valve is used to maintain the sample flow rate at its nominal
value. From both integrated sample volume and mass detection the
particulate concentration is calculated. At any given time the output signal
delivers the concentration of particulate in actual or standard conditions.
The Model 5030i outputs particulate matter concentrations to the front
panel display as SHARP, PM, and NEPH, which are the hybrid, beta
attenuation and nephelometer derived particulate concentrations,
respectively. Displayed concentrations, analog outputs, also makes the data
available over the serial or Ethernet connection.
Additionally, the Model 5030i proportional radiation detector is sensitive
to natural alpha activity of the aerosol passing through the sampling
system. The additional alpha count rate is used to measure the presence of
Radon gas and infer the daughter nuclides of Radon gas. These daughter
nuclides create a small beta emission. This externally sampled beta emission
is perceived by the detector to be a higher count rate and the higher the
count rate, the less apparent mass detected. Therefore, by measuring the
natural alpha activity due to Radon gas, the proportional beta interference
from the daughter nuclide emissions are subtracted from the count rate to
provide a refined mass measurement. This potential error from Radon gas
interference may be (in lower strength radioactive devices; e.g.; <100 μCi)
as high as actual particle concentrations, especially after filter change or
when the natural activity concentration changes. The Model 5030i has
implemented this procedure to determine separately the natural activity in
the aerosol and to eliminate this error. This procedure further allows the
Model 5030i to provide a more stable reading at lower ambient particulate
concentrations compared to similar methods. Furthermore, from this
information the activity concentration of the natural noble gas Radon is
derived.

Introduction
Specifications
The beta measurement chamber houses an RTD temperature sensor. The
T-sensor directly measures the temperature of the incoming sample stream
for a continuous air mass compensation, and the flow system. The flow and
ambient sensor measurements are combined within a firmware algorithm to
maintain an accurate measurement and control of volumetric flow at the
inlet and through the differential orifice.
The Model 5030i also includes three pressure sensors to measure the
differential pressure across a subsonic orifice, vacuum under the filter tape,
and barometric pressure. The flow P-sensor is solely used for measurement
at the orifice for flow rate control. The vacuum sensor is used for air mass
compensation, as an indicator for clogging of the system and is included in
the volumetric flow control. The barometric P-sensor is used for air mass
compensation and for volumetric flow rate regulation.
The volumetric flow system is built on a calibrated feedback signal from the
CPU to the proportional valve signal. By using this flow control, flow
stability is easily maintained.
With regard to the hybrid, 5030i SHARP Monitor methodology, the
nephelometer and beta attenuation concentrations are calculated and both
values are digitally filtered (e.g. averaged) with an elastic time constant that
is a function of the real-time concentrations. The time constant of this
dynamic digital filter will vary with concentrations. It is the ratio of those
two digitally filtered concentrations that becomes a dynamic correction
factor for the real-time nephelometer, and the product of this correction
factor and nephelometer becomes the SHARP Monitor concentrations.

Installation
Lifting
The inner box that the instrument resides in is an ISTA 1A-certified
packaging and is appropriate for transporting the instrument on local paved
roads to the monitoring site. Precautions should be taken to secure this
package from shifting during local transport.
Using the ISTA-2A packaging is strongly recommended for transporting
the instrument over poor roads or on highways.
Lifting
When lifting the instrument, use a procedure appropriate to lifting a heavy
object, such as bending at the knees while keeping your back straight and
upright. Grasp the instrument at the bottom in the front and at the rear of
the unit. Although one person may lift the unit, it is desirable to have two
persons lifting, one by grasping the bottom in the front and the other by
grasping the bottom in the rear.
Equipment Damage Do not attempt to lift the instrument by the cover or
other external fittings. ▲
Unpacking and
Inspection
If there is obvious damage to the shipping container when the instrument is
received, notify the carrier immediately and hold for inspection. The carrier
is responsible for any damage incurred during shipment.
Use the following procedure to unpack and inspect the instrument.
1. Remove the instrument from its shipping container(s) and set it on a
table or bench that allows easy access to both the front and rear.
2. Remove the cover to expose the internal components.

Acceptance Testing
and Startup
Procedures
The Model 5030i has been bench tested and calibrated at the factory prior
to shipping. The mass sensors, RH sensors, flowmeter temperature sensor,
external ambient temperature sensor, barometric pressure, and volumetric
flow rate have been calibrated to traceable standards. For a quick start,
proceed immediately to the “Startup” procedures and skip the “Bench
Acceptance Test”.
To assure the best quality data, it is recommended that you perform an
acceptance test. Furthermore, as part of a quality assurance program
acceptance testing will be conducted prior to field installation. This is an
excellent opportunity to compare the monitor to the primary and transfer
standards utilized by the end-user within their specific monitoring

operating according to the manufacturer specifications.
After acceptance testing, a completed monitoring installation will require
final volumetric flow rate verification.
Acceptance Test
Prior to installing the Model 5030i, you should perform the acceptance
testing procedures. These tests are conducted to evaluate the out-of-box
performance of the instrument, perform any necessary calibrations prior to

One-Point Temperature
Verification
Record the temperature sensor readings from the Model 5030i and
compare to your NIST-traceable thermometer. Each of these measurements
should be within ±2 °C tolerance of your NIST-traceable thermometer.
Within this tolerance, the temperature sensors have passed the acceptance
test.
If the sensors are slightly out of tolerance (±3 °C), the acceptance test
should be classified as marginal. If the sensor performance is outside this
range, please perform a temperature sensor calibration.
For more information about the temperature sensor calibration, see the
“Calibration” chapter.
One-Point RH Sensor
Verification
Record the ambient RH sensor and nephelometer RH sensor readings from
the Model 5030i and compare to your NIST-traceable Hygrometer. The
Model 5030i RH sensors should compare within ±2% RH tolerance of
your NIST-traceable hygrometer. If the RH sensor performance is within
this tolerance, the acceptance test has passed.
Note The ambient temperature verification should be completed prior to
performing the RH-sensor verification due to a thermal compensation
applied to the RH-sensor. Furthermore, try to avoid RH comparisons
<30% RH and >80% RH. ▲

If the RH sensors are slightly out of tolerance, ±5% RH, the acceptance test
should be classified as marginal. If the sensor performance is outside this
range, please perform a RH-sensor calibration.
For more information about the RH sensor calibration, see the
“Calibration” chapter.
It is recommended that the NIST-traceable hygrometer should also
compare well with the RH-measurement used within a gravimetric
laboratory that is part of a compliance program.
One-Point Barometric
Pressure Verification
Record the Model 5030i barometric pressure sensor reading. This value is
in units of mmHg. If necessary, using the pressure unit conversion (Table
2–1) to convert your NIST-traceable measurement to units of mmHg for
an appropriate comparison. The Model 5030i barometric sensor should
compare within ±10.0 mmHg tolerance of your NIST-traceable barometer.
If the Model 5030i sensor performance is within this tolerance, the
acceptance test has passed.
If the sensor is slightly out of tolerance, ±12 mmHg, the acceptance test
should be classified as marginal. If the sensor performance is outside this
range, please perform a sensor calibration.
For more information about the barometric pressure sensor calibration, see
the “Calibration” chapter.
One-Point Volumetric
Flow Rate Verification
The flow rate of the Model 5030i should be verified during this acceptance
test. Prior to this test it is important for the previous temperature and
pressure acceptance tests to be completed. Should the ambient temperature,
flow temperature or barametric sensors require calibration, this should be
done prior to the flow rate verification.

Acceptance Testing and Startup Procedures
Attach the small sample tube adapter to the Model 5030i inlet. Depending
upon your NIST-traceable volumetric flow transfer standard (FTS), you
may either attach your FTS now or add the flow audit adapter to
accommodate any flexible tubing that your FTS may require. Allow 60
seconds to stabilize the flow after connecting.
Record the Model 5030i Volumetric Flow Rate as Qm and the FTS flow
rate as Qi, assuring that both are being recorded in units of actual liters per
minute. Take three readings each from Qm and Qi and average the
respective values. Use the following equation to calculate the percent
difference:
% D = 100 ×
Qm − Qi
Qi
If %D is within ±4%, then the Model 5030i volumetric flow rate
acceptance test has passed. If the Model 5030i volumetric flow rate is
slightly out of tolerance, ±5%, the acceptance test should be classified as
marginal. If the volumetric flow rate performance is outside this range,
please perform a volumetric flow calibration.
For more information about the volumetric flow rate calibration, see the
“Calibration” chapter.
Leak Check
Procedure
Nephelometer Source
Verification
Nephelometer Zero
Check
Thermo Fisher Scientific
The leak check of the 5030i SHARP is conducted by first measuring the
volumetric flow rate at the inlet adapter. Next, place the factory-supplied
leak check adapter on top of the inlet adapter and then install the flowmeter on top of the leak check adapter. Compare the volumetric flow rate
of the 5030i to the flow meter and calculate the difference. If the difference
is less than 0.80 L/min (80 ml/min) then the leak check passes. If it is
greater than 80 ml/min, check for leaks in the system by checking the
various fittings upstream of the measurement head. If the source of the leak
cannot be found, the instrument requires service by a trained technician.
The nephelometer light source has been factory set to a current of
approximately 65 milliamps (mA). Should this valve be outside a range of
60–70 mA, the source current should be adjusted in the calibration menu.
The 5030i has an auto-zero function and it is common during setup to
potentially disturb the zero. To evaluate the zero of the 5030i, place a
HEPA filter at the inlet for approximately five minutes, or until the
concentration has stabilized. The nephelometer concentration should be ±1
μg/m³. If this is not the case, the HEPA filter should be removed, and a
Model 5030i SHARP Instruction Manual

Installation
Setup
nephelometer zero should be conducted. After re-zeroing the nephelometer,
repeat the zero check steps above.
Setup
Inlet System
Setting up this monitor includes siting the monitor per local government
agency requirements, creating a waterproof inlet system installation with
vertical support, connecting the inlet system to the instrument through the
dynamic heater system, connecting vacuum lines, establishing datalogging
setting, and making the power connections.
When siting the inlet system, it is best to first establish the instrument
location and height within the air monitoring station. From whatever
chosen surface the instrument is to rest on (rack or table top), add
approximately 24 inches to that height to allow for overall height of the
5030i monitor.
Next allow approximately 40 inches to attach the heated sample tube to the
top of the 5030i via 5/8-inch OD tubing unions that use Teflon ferrules.
Figure 2–3. Model 5030i Side View—inches [millimeters]
It is also important to locate the roof flange installation in vertical
alignment with the inlet of the instrument. By reviewing the top view
drawing of the instrument (Figure 2–3), the roof flange must be centered
in direct alignment with the 5/8-inch OD tube entering the 5030i
instrument.

Installation
Setup
Figure 2–4. Model 5030i Top View—inches [millimeters]
Heater
Once the x-y coordinates of the instrument and roof flange system are
established and a waterproof flange system has been installed, perform a dry
run by attaching the heated sample tube on top of the 5030i base. If the
heated tube protrudes through the roof flange, either the instrument should
be lowered or an elongated PVC sleeve and cap system should cover the
heater while maintaining a waterproof seal. However, for the remainder of
this description, it is assumed the heater will fit within the ceiling height of
the air monitoring station.
Based on the vertical height requirements, use additional 5/8-inch OD
stainless tubing and connectors to make up the difference between the
desired inlet height and the top of the heater.
Additional routing is necessary for the ambient T/RH sensor assembly.

Extension Lengths
There is one standard length of heated sample tube at one meter. Sample

Rack Mounting
Option
One limiting factor when siting the Model 5030i is placement within a
standard 19-inch rack mounting. Future planning should be made to
reserve the topmost rack mounting position available due to the vertical
positioning of the sample tube directly from the roof into the top of the
Model 5030i. In addition, modification to the rack cabinet to
accommodate the vertical tubing connection also needs to be considered
prior to installation. For more information, see Chapter 9 “Optional
Equipment”.
Review the following installation steps prior to field installation.
Monitor Installation
Once all height requirements are established, the following steps are usually
taken to complete the installation.
1. Remove cover to the 5030i base instrument and inspect for proper
filter tape installation.
2. Place 5030i unit in place of intended operation.
3. Attach the insulated heater tube assembly to the 5/8-inch OD tube on

The iSeries instruments include a built-in datalogging capability as a
standard feature. The operator is allowed to create two different types of
records, which for historical reasons, are named lrecs and srecs. Each record
can contain up to 32 different fields, or data items, and records can be
created at user-defined intervals ranging from 1 to 60 minutes.
Record generation is tied to the instrument’s real-time clock. For example,
if the logging period for srecs is set to 30 minutes, a new srec will be
generated on every hour and every half hour (10:00, 10:30, 11:00 …).
Lrecs and srecs function independent of each other. So, for example, an
srec containing just the current SHARP level could be generated every 5
minutes while an lrec containing a full set of diagnostic data could be
generated once every hour.
The analyzer's computer system includes three megabytes of flash memory
which is enough to store a full lrec containing 32 data items and a full srec

containing 32 items once each minute for a week (>20,000 total records).
If logging is limited to the minimum content of date, time, SHARP
concentration and error flags, the analyzer can store data once each minute
for 4 months (>190,000 total records).

Chapter 4
Calibration
The Model 5030i is an instrument that can make accurate mass
concentration measurements of PM10, PM2.5 and PM1.0. However, with all
electronic instruments, the accuracy of the measurements depends on
proper calibration.
In general terms, calibration, also called standardization, is the process that
establishes the relationship between sensor output signals and the
parameter the operator is attempting to measure. The 5030i instrument
uses sensors that measure temperature, humidity, pressure, and radiation.
This chapter describes the procedures for performing the necessary sensor
calibrations. This chapter is also a follow-up to the Acceptance Testing
outlined in the “Installation” chapter and a continuation of the menu
display descriptions in the “Operation” chapter.
Frequency of
Calibration
Each instrument is calibrated and tested for accuracy at the factory. The
mass calibration is conducted with a set of NIST-traceable mass calibration
foils. The radiation detector is calibrated against certified check sources for
beta and alpha emissions. The temperature, relative humidity, pressure and
flow rate are all calibrated against NIST traceable standards.
It is recommended that the instrument be calibrated once per year and
encounter quality checks on a periodic basis in accordance with the users
specific quality assurance project plan. For example, volumetric flow checks
on a two-week basis are common in some air monitoring agencies and with
full-scale quarterly audits for flow and mass. The Quality Assurance
Handbook for Air Pollution Measurement Systems, published by the U.S.
EPA, Research Triangle Park, NC 27711, can be consulted for detailed
quality assurance guidelines.
Equipment
Required
Optional mass transfer standards are available from Thermo Fisher
Scientific for performing an annual mass calibration. However, additional
specialized equipment is needed to calibrate the Model 5030i for
temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, and volumetric flow.
The following equipment should be used:
●
Thermo Fisher Scientific
A thermistor or thermocouple thermometer capable of measuring
ambient temperatures in a range of –20 to 50 °C, readable to the
Model 5030i SHARP Instruction Manual
4-1
Calibration
Pre-Calibration
nearest 0.1 °C. This thermometer should be referenced to within an
accuracy of ±0.5 °C to NIST-traceable precision thermometers.
Multiple thermometers may be used to cover the temperature range as
long as each thermometer meets the accuracy and readability
specifications described above.
Pre-Calibration
Calibration
Procedure
4-2
Model 5030i SHARP Instruction Manual
●
A barometer capable of measuring barometric pressure over a range of
600 to 800 mmHg (80 to 106 kilo Pascals [kPa]) and readable to the
nearest 1 mmHg. At least once a year, this barometer should be
calibrated to within ±5 mmHg of a NIST-traceable barometer of
known accuracy.
●
Flow-rate Transfer Standard (FTS) measurement equipment capable of
calibrating, or verifying, the volumetric flow rate measurement with an
accuracy of ±2 percent. This flow rate standard must be a separate,
stand-alone device. It must have its own certification and be traceable
to a NIST primary standard for volume or flow rate. Dry-piston meters
and bubble flow meters should only be used under controlled
laboratory conditions. Ambient field measurements should use a NISTtraceable low pressure drop orifice/venturi flow meter (such as, BGI
Delta-Cal) or a Streamline Pro™ Model SX Kit (2-25 L/min).
●
A relative humidity (RH) standard capable of measuring in the range of
35-75% RH, readable to the nearest 0.5% RH and accurate to within
2% RH.
Prior to calibration, be sure the Model 5030i is operating properly. The
Model 5030i’s internal diagnostics makes this a quick and simple process.
Turn on the instrument and allow it to stabilize for one hour prior to
calibrating. If you are receiving this instrument for the first time, the
optional acceptance testing in the “Installation” chapter should also be
reviewed. If the internal flow temperature sensor requires calibration, the
dynamic heating system should be turned OFF, the cover should be
removed, and the instrument should sample room temperature air at least
one hour prior to calibrating.
The order of calibration described below is preferred for optimal
performance of the 5030i and comes from many years of experience
working with and developing ambient particulate monitoring
instrumentation. The Calibration submenus allow the user to view and
calibrate the instrument. All calibration submenus are visible only when the
instrument is in service mode. For more information on the service mode,
see “Service Mode” earlier in Chapter 3.

thereby biasing the mass calibration.
●
Foils sets can be returned to Thermo Fisher Scientific for recalibration
as necessary.
●
Separate foil sets are recommended for periodic QC checks, auditing,
and calibration.
●
Should the user suspect the foil window(s) has been damaged,
scratched, or coated, these foil sets should be returned to Thermo
Fisher Scientific for re-calibration.
The null foil has the same approximate mass as a clean filter spot and the
span foil is a calibrated mass increase above the null foil. Therefore, the
foils come in a set and must not be mixed with other sets since a bias in
mass calibration will occur.
Since the beta attenuation method is linear with mass increase, the Model
5030i need not be calibrated in the exact range of beta attenuation per filter
spot. What is important, is calibrating the corresponding beta count
reduction with an increase of calibrated mass.

Calibration Procedure
Note To achieve the most accurate mass calibration, the flow temperature
should be as stable as possible and therefore the instrument should have the
heating system turned off, and the instrument should be allowed to
equilibrate to shelter or ambient temperature. If the Model 5030i Beta is
mounted within an ambient shelter, then the most stable time of day to
perform a mass calibration would be either early morning or late
afternoon. ▲

Cleaning the Inlets
The inlet assemblies can include a TSP inlet, a U.S. EPA compatible PM10
inlet, or a Digital PM10 or PM2.5 inlet. Cleaning schedules and routine
maintenance of assembly components should be in accordance with a good
quality assurance plan.
In general, it is recommended that the inlet assemblies be cleaned on a
quarterly interval with mild soap solution, a thorough rinsing, and dried
with a lint free cloth. If any impaction surfaces require impactor grease, it
should be applied prior to reassembly. Furthermore, a general inspection,
and replacement as necessary, of O-rings should be done.

water, clean the interior of the bottle, inspect the seals, and replace the
bottle in the holder.
Thermo Fisher Scientific
Preventive Maintenance
Cleaning the Inlets
Figure 5–1. U.S. EPA PM10 Inlet
Once a month the sampler inlet should be dismantled and cleaned. Mark
each assembly point of the sampler inlet with a pen or pencil to provide
reference marks during reassembly.
Disassemble the sample inlet unit according to Figure 5–1. If the assembly
screws are frozen, apply penetrating oil or commercial lubricant to make
removal easier. Clean all interior surfaces and the bug screen with a general
purpose cleaner or compressed air, paying particular attention to small
openings and cracks. Cotton swabs and/or a small brush are helpful.
Completely dry all components.
Also monthly, check the O-rings for distortion, cracks, fraying, or other
problems and replace as necessary. Apply small amounts of grease to the
rings before assembling the unit.
Reassemble the unit in accordance with the previously scribed match
marks. Particular care should be taken to ensure that all O-rings seals are
properly seated and that all screws are uniformly tightened.

On at least an annual basis (more frequently in heavily polluted
environments) the sample tube that attaches to the inlet and to the Model
5030i Beta module should be removed and cleaned. The use of a bottle
brush and string will allow you to remove any deposits within the sample
tube. This same procedure also applies to the heater tube.
Weather Proofing
The “Installation” chapter covers detailed installation instructions. After
proper installation, it is recommended to check the weather-proof
installation at all interfaces exposed to ambient conditions. Ensure that the
condition of the roof flange and silicone caulking will prevent any
precipitation from entering the shelter and possibly damaging the
instrument’s electronics.
Fan Filter Inspection
and Cleaning
Use the following procedure to inspect and clean the fan filter (Figure 5–
4).
1. Remove the fan guard from the fan and remove the filter.
2. Flush the filter with warm water and let dry (a clean, oil-free purge will
help the drying process) or blow the filter clean with compressed air.
3. Re-install the filter and fan guard.

instructions for rebuilding the pump. See the “Servicing” chapter for a list
of replacement parts. Perform the “Leak Test” procedure that follows.
This leak test procedure uses a volumetric flow meter and a custom leak
check adapter. Use the following procedure to verify no leaks.
1. Place a reference volumetric flow meter (e.g., BGI Delta Cal) onto the
inlet adapter and calibrate the 5030i SHARP so that the reference flow
meter and the 5030i SHARP Monitor read the same flow rate.
2. Install the custom leak check adapter onto the inlet adapter and then
place the reference flow meter onto the leak check adapter.

Safety Precautions
Safety Precautions
Read the safety precautions before beginning any procedures in this
chapter.
WARNING The service procedures in this manual are restricted to qualified
service representatives. ▲
If the equipment is operated in a manner not specified by the
manufacturer, the protection provided by the equipment may be
impaired. ▲
The detector assembly should be replaced by a qualified technician
knowledgeable in dealing with radiation precautions. By removing the
detector assembly, the C-14 radioactive source is partially exposed. Safety
glassed must be worn during this replacement procedure. The amount of
C-14 meets the U.S. NRC regulations as an exempt amount of radioactive
source <100 μCi. ▲
The detector pre-amp assembly has a power backup built in. “DO NOT
OPEN” caution handeling. Backup power will dissipate after 8 hours. ▲
CAUTION The detector window is very fragile. Handle with great care and
do not wipe or touch the window. Furthermore, do not touch the solder
cable connection (electrode) with your bare fingers. The oils from your skin
can damage the detector. ▲
Safety glasses must be worn while replacing the detector assembly. ▲
If the LCD panel breaks, do not let the liquid crystal contact your skin or
clothes. If the liquid crystal contacts your skin or clothes, wash it off
immediately using soap and water. ▲
Equipment Damage Some internal components can be damaged by small
amounts of static electricity. A properly grounded antistatic wrist strap
must be worn while handling any internal component (Figure 7–1). If an
antistatic wrist strap is not available, be sure to touch the instrument chassis
before touching any internal components. When the instrument is
unplugged, the chassis is not at earth ground. ▲
Do not remove the LCD panel or frame from the LCD module. ▲

Firmware Updates
The LCD polarizing plate is very fragile, handle it carefully. ▲
Do not wipe the LCD polarizing plate with a dry cloth, as it may easily
scratch the plate. ▲
Do not use alcohol, acetone, MEK or other Ketone based or aromatic
solvents to clean the LCD module, but rather use a soft cloth moistened
with a naphtha cleaning solvent. ▲
Do not place the LCD module near organic solvents or corrosive gases. ▲
Do not shake or jolt the LCD module. ▲

Nephelometer
Assembly
The nephelometer assembly uses an 880 nanometer incident light source
and hybrid silicon photodetector to measure the intensity of scattered light
in the presence of aerosol. This assembly houses a nephelometer,
temperature sensor, relative humidity sensor, and PCB interface.
Primary
Measurement Head
The primary measurement head uses a beta source and proportional
alpha/beta detector to measure the attenuation of beta particles by sampled
aerosol across a glass fiber filter and to discriminate against any naturally
occurring beta interferences from the daughter nuclides of alpha decay
products.
Detector Amplifier
This cylindrical tube houses a printed circuit board, provides power to the
proportional detector and amplifies the beta and alpha counts prior to
being sent to the 5030i measurement interface board.
Cam Photo Interrupt
Board
This small printed circuit board includes a photo-interrupter to detect the
closed position of the measurement head. This is connected to a motor
assembly used to open and close the measurement head.
Counter Wheel Interrupt
Board Assembly
8-4
This small printed circuit board is mounted onto a chopper wheel that
measures the amount of filter tape advanced during a filter tape change.
Proportional Valve
The proportional valve is a proportional solenoid valve that is used as a
means of flow control. In response to the measured flow across a subsonic
orifice, the proportional valve will either partially open or close to make a
flow adjustment in real-time.
Cam Motor
This motor is used to drive the cam to rotate. By rotating the cam, the
measurement head lever arm is raised and lowered for opening and closing
the measurement head during a filter tape change.
Tape Motor
After the measurement head is opened, this motor is used to advance the
filter tape a fixed amount prior to initiating another beta attenuation event
on a fixed sample spot.

External Solenoid
Pump Intake TFitting
Firmware
Instrument Control
This PCB assembly is mounted on the floor plate and has three pressure
sensors attached. The pressure board is used to measure the barometric
pressure, differential pressure across the orifice and vacuum under the filter
tap. All tubing attached to the pressure board is numbered in case of the
need to swap out this board.
The external solenoid is used to permit the pump to either exhaust
normally, or to deliver filtered air to the instrument during the
nephelometer zero.
The pump intake T-fitting provides excess air specifically for periods of
nephelometer zeroing.
The processor firmware tasks are organized into four areas:
●
Instrument control
●
Monitoring signals
●
Measurement calculations
●
Output communication
Low-level embedded processors are used to control the various functions on
the boards, such as analog and digital I/O. These processors are controlled
over a serial interface with a single high-level processor that also controls
the front-panel user interface. The low-level processors all run a common
piece of firmware that is bundled with the high-level firmware and loaded
on power-up if a different version is detected.
Each board has a specific address that is used to identify to the firmware
what functions are supported on that board. This address is also used for
the communications between the low-level processors and the high-level
processor.
Every tenth of a second, the frequency counters, analog I/O, and digital
I/O are read and written to by the low-level processors. The counters are
accumulated over the past second and the analog inputs are averaged over
that second. The high-level processor polls the low-level processors once
per second to exchange the measurement and control data.
Thermo Fisher Scientific
Model 5030i SHARP Instruction Manual
8-5
System Description
Electronics
Monitoring Signals
Signals are gathered from the low-level processors once per second, and
then processed by the high-level processor to produce the final
measurement values. The one-second accumulated counts are accumulated
and reported for the user-specified averaging time. If this averaging time is
greater than ten seconds, the measurement is still reported every 10
seconds. The one-second average of the other analog inputs are reported
directly (no additional signal conditioning is performed by the high-level
processor).
Output
Communication
The front panel display, serial and Ethernet data ports, and analog outputs
are the means of communicating the results of the above calculations. The
front panel display presents the concentrations simultaneously. The display
is updated every 1-10 seconds, depending on the averaging time.
The analog output ranges are user selectable via firmware. The analog
outputs are defaulted based on the measurement range. Negative
concentrations can be represented as long as they are within -5% of fullscale. The zero and span values may be set by the user to any desired value.
Electronics
All electronics operate from a universal switching supply, which is capable
of auto-sensing the input voltage and working over the all specified ranges.
External pumps and heaters all operate on 110 VAC. An optional
transformer is required if operating on the 210-250 range.
An on/off switch controls all power to the analyzer and is accessible on the
front panel.
Motherboard
8-6
Model 5030i SHARP Instruction Manual
The motherboard contains the main processor, power supplies, and a subprocessor, and serves as the communication hub for the instrument. The
motherboard receives operator inputs from the front panel function keys
and/or over I/O connections on the rear panel. The motherboard sends
commands to the other boards to control the functions of the instrument
and to collect measurement and diagnostic information. The motherboard
outputs instrument status and measurement data to the graphics display
and to the rear-panel I/O. The motherboard also contains I/O circuitry and

Flow Sensor System
The flow sensor system consists of a subsonic orifice inside the primary
measurement head, a differential pressure and vacuum sensors, and a flow
temperature RTD. The flow system output is produced by measuring the
pressure difference across a precision orifice. This unit is used for
measuring the flow of sample gas in the measurement system.
Pressure Sensor
Assembly
The pressure sensor assembly consists of a board containing three pressure
transducers with tube connections. The pressure transducer output is
produced by measuring the pressure difference between the sample gas
pressure and ambient air pressure.
Detector Amplifier
Assembly
The detector amplifier assembly amplifies the signal from the proportional
detector that receives beta particle emissions from the C-14 source through
the sample and filter tape. The output of the detector amplifier is fed to the
measurement interface board. A coaxial cable from the detector amplifier
supplies power and grounding to the detector.

and analog circuits. Eight analog voltage inputs are provided with an input
voltage range of 0V to10 VDC. Six current outputs are provided with a
normal operating range of 0 to 20 mA.
The front panel connector board interfaces between the motherboard and
the function key panel and graphics display. It serves as a central location to
tie the three connectors required for the function key panel, the graphics
display control lines, and the graphics display backlight to a single ribbon
cable extending back to the motherboard. This board also includes signal
buffers for the graphics display control signals and a high voltage power
supply for the graphics display backlight.
External I/O is driven from a generic bus that is capable of controlling the
following devices:
●
Analog output (voltage and current)
●
Analog input (voltage)
●
Digital output (TTL levels)
●
Digital input (TTL levels)
Note The instrument has spare solenoid valve drivers and I/O support for

Analog Voltage
Outputs
The instrument provides six analog voltage outputs. Each may be firmware
configured for any one of the following ranges, while maintaining a
minimum resolution of 12 bits:
●
0-100 mV
●
0-1 V
●
0-5 V
●
0-10 V
The user can calibrate each analog output zero and span point through the
firmware. At least 5% of full-scale over and under range are also supported,
but may be overridden in the firmware, if required.
Thermo Fisher Scientific

System Description
I/O Components
The analog outputs may be assigned to any measurement or diagnostic
channel with a user-defined range in the units of the selected parameter.
The voltage outputs are independent of the current outputs.
Analog Current
Outputs (Optional)
The optional I/O expansion board includes six isolated current outputs.
These are firmware configured for any one of the following ranges, while
maintaining a minimum resolution of 11 bits:
●
0-20 mA
●
4-20 mA
The user can calibrate each analog output zero and span point through the
firmware. At least 5% of full-scale over and under range are also supported,
but may be overridden in the firmware, if required.
The analog outputs may be assigned to any measurement or diagnostic
channel with a user-defined range in the units of the selected parameter.
The current outputs are independent of the voltage outputs. The current
outputs are isolated from the instrument power and ground, but they share
a common return line (Isolated GND).
Analog Voltage
Inputs (Optional)
The optional I/O expansion board includes eight analog voltage inputs.
These inputs are used to gather measurement data from third-party devices
such as meteorological equipment. The user may assign a label, unit, and a
conversion table (2 to 10 points). Each point in the conversion table
consists of an analog input voltage value (0-10.5 V) and a corresponding
user-defined reading value. Only two points are necessary for linear inputs,
however, a larger number of points may be used to approximate non-linear
inputs. All voltage inputs have a resolution of 12 bits over the range of 0 to
10 volts.
Digital Relay
Outputs
The instrument includes one power fail relay on the motherboard and ten
digital output relays on the digital output board. These are reed relays rated
for at least 500 mA @ 200 VDC.
The power fail relay is Form C (both normally opened and normally closed
contacts). All other relays are Form A (normally opened contacts) and are
used to provide alarm status and mode information from the analyzer, as
well as remote control to other devices, such as for controlling valves during
calibration. The user may select what information is sent out from each
relay and whether the active state is opened or closed.

Digital Inputs
Sixteen digital inputs are available, which may be programmed to signal
instrument modes and special conditions including:
●
Filter tape change
●
Turn pump off
●
Turn pump on
●
Analog outputs to zero
●
Analog outputs to full-scale
The actual use of these inputs will vary based on analyzer configuration.
The digital inputs are TTL level compatible and are pulled up within the
analyzer. The active state can be user defined in firmware.
Serial Ports
Two serial ports allow daisy chaining so that multiple analyzers may be
linked using one PC serial port.
The standard bi-directional serial interface can be configured for either RS232 or RS-485. The serial baud rate is user selectable in the firmware for
standard speeds from 1200 to 115200 baud. The user can also set the data
bits, parity, and stop bits. The following protocols are supported:
●
C-Link
●
MODBUS Slave
●
Gesytec (Bayern-Hessen)
●
Streaming Data
●
ESM
The Streaming Data protocol transmits user-selected measurement data via
the serial port in real-time for capture by a serial printer, datalogger, or PC.
RS-232 Connection
A null modem (crossed) cable is required when connecting the analyzer to
an IBM-compatible PC. However, a straight cable (one to one) may be
required when connecting the analyzer to other remote devices. As a
general rule, when the connector of the host remote device is female, a
straight cable is required and when the connector is male, a null modem
cable is required.

port (Port #1) on the external valve assembly using the available
push connect fitting.
Note This step can also be delayed until after the zero air delivery tube and
T-fitting are installed at the sample intake. ▲
d. At the sample inlet, attach the stainless steel T-fitting to the sample
downtube and tighten the swagelok fitting with Teflon ferrules—
do not overtighten these ferrules.
e. Snake the green vacuum tubing downwards towards the rear valve
assembly and attach to Port #1 of the valve. If this is a field
installation, proper water sealants should be used to avoid any
leakage into the instrument.

Appendix B
C-Link Protocol Commands
This appendix provides a description of the C-Link protocol commands
that can be used to remotely control a Model 5030i analyzer using a host
device such as a PC or a datalogger. C-Link protocol may be used over RS232, RS-485, or Ethernet. C-Link functions can be accessed over Ethernet
using TCP port 9880.
Streaming data is sent out the serial port or the Ethernet port on a userdefined periodic basis. Streaming data over Ethernet is only generated when
a connection is made on TCP port 9881.
Up to three simultaneous connections per protocol may be made over
Ethernet.
For details, see the following topics:

Each command sent to the analyzer over the serial port must begin with the
American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) symbol or
byte value equivalent to the instrument’s identification number plus 128.
Model 5030i SHARP Instruction Manual
B-1
C-Link Protocol Commands
Commands
For example, if the instrument ID is set to 25, then each command must
begin with the ACSII character code 153 decimal. The analyzer ignores any
command that does not begin with its instrument identification number. If
the instrument ID is set to 0, then this byte is not required. For more
information on changing Instrument ID, see Chapter 3, “Operation”.
Commands
The analyzer must be in the remote mode and service mode not active in
order to change instrument parameters remotely. However, the command
“set mode remote” can be sent to the analyzer to put it in the remote mode.
Report commands (commands that don’t begin with “set”) can be issued
either in the remote or local mode, regardless of the service mode setting.
For information on changing modes, see Chapter 3, “Operation”.
The commands are not case sensitive. Each command must begin with the
proper instrument identification number (ASCII) character. The command
in the following example begins with the ASCII character code 153
decimal, which directs the command to the Model 5030i, and is
terminated by a carriage return “CR” (ASCII character code 13 decimal).
<ASCII 153> T I M E <CR>
Many of the commands have two forms. One form reads parameter from
the instrument’s memory, and the other writes, or updates, a parameter.
The syntax for a write command adds the word “set” in front of the
command and provides an argument. Command responses are generally
echoed with a data element appended.
Note If the Service Mode is active, C-Link “set” commands are not
allowed. This is to prevent parameters from being changed remotely while
the unit is being serviced locally. ▲
If an incorrect command is sent, an error message is generated. The list of
error responses is shown in Table B–1. The following example sends the
incorrect command “set unit mg/m3” instead of the correct command “set
conc unit mg/m3.”

The “save” and “set save params” commands (duplicated for backward
compatibility) store parameters in FLASH memory. It is important that
this command be sent each time instrument parameters are changed. If
changes are not saved, they will be lost in the event of a power failure.

The erec, lrec, and srec layouts contain the following:
●
A format specifier for parsing ASCII responses
●
A format specifier for parsing binary responses
In addition to these, the erec layout contains:
●
A format specifier for producing the front panel display screens
Values are read using either the ASCII or binary format specifiers and
converted to uniform internal representations (32-bit floats or 32-bit
integers). These values are converted into text for display on the screen
using the format specifier for the front panel display. Normally, the
specifier used to parse a particular datum from the input stream will be
strongly related to the specifier used to display it (such as, all of the floating
point inputs will be displayed with an 'f' output specifier, and all of the
integer inputs will be displayed with a 'd' specifier).
Format Specifier for
ASCII Responses
The first line of the layout response is the scanf-like parameter list for
parsing the fields from an ASCII erec response. Parameters are separated by
spaces and the line is terminated by a “\n” (the normal line separator
character). Valid fields are:
%s - parse a string
%d - parse a decimal number
%ld - parse a long (32-bit) decimal number
%f - parse a floating point number
%x - parse a hexadecimal number
%lx - parse a long (32-bit) hex number
%* - ignore the field
Note Signed versus unsigned for the integer values does not matter; it is
handled automatically. ▲
Format Specifier for
Binary Responses
The second line of the layout response is the binary parameter list for
parsing the fields from a binary response. Parameters MUST be separated
by spaces, and the line is terminated by a '\n'. Valid fields are:
t - parse a time specifier (2 bytes)
D - parse a date specifier (3 bytes)
i - ignore one 8-bit character (1 byte)
e - parse a 24-bit floating point number (3 bytes: n/x)
B-66
Model 5030i SHARP Instruction Manual
Thermo Fisher Scientific
C-Link Protocol Commands
Record Layout Definition
E - parse a 24-bit floating point number (3 bytes: N/x)
f - parse a 32-bit floating point number (4 bytes)
c - parse an 8-bit signed number (1 byte)
C - parse an 8-bit unsigned number (1 byte)
n - parse a 16-bit signed number (2 bytes)
N - parse a 16-bit unsigned number (2 bytes)
m - parse a 24-bit signed number (3 bytes)
M - parse a 24-bit unsigned number (3 bytes)
l - parse a 32-bit signed number (4 bytes)
L - parse a 32-bit unsigned number (4 bytes)
There is an optional single digit d which may follow any of the numeric
fields, which indicates that after the field has been parsed out, the resulting
value is to be divided by 10^d. Thus the 16-bit field 0xFFC6 would be
interpreted with the format specifier 'n3' as the number -0.058.
Format Specifier for
Erec Layout
The subsequent lines in the erec layout response describe the appearance of
the full panel. The full instrument panel as it appears on the screen has two
columns of lines. Each line is composed of three major components: (1) a
text field, (2) a value field, and (3) a button. None of these three
components is required. The text field contains statically displayed text.
The value field displays values which are parsed out of the response to a
erec command. It also displays, though background changes, alarm status.
The button, when pressed, triggers input from either a dialog box or a
selection list. There are five kinds of buttons, B, I, L, T, and N.
Each line in the layout string corresponds to one line on the display. The
layout string describes each of the three major fields as well as translation
mechanisms and corresponding commands.
Thermo Fisher Scientific
Text
The first field in the layout string is the text. It is delimited by a ':'. The
string up to the first ':' will be read and inserted in the text field of the line.
Value String
This is followed by a possible string enclosed in quotes that is used to place
a string into the value field.
Value Source
The value source, which is the item (or word) number in the DATA/EREC
response, appears next. This is followed by an optional bitfield designator.
The datum identified by the value source can be printed as a string 's',
hexadecimal 'x', decimal 'd', floating point 'f', or binary 'b' number.
Model 5030i SHARP Instruction Manual

C-Link Protocol Commands
Record Layout Definition
Typically, bitfield extractions are only done for decimal or hexadecimal
numbers.
Floating-point numbers can be followed with an optional precision
specifier which will be used as an argument to printf's %f format (for
example, a field of '4' would be translated into the printf command of
'%.3f'). Alternately, the special character '*' can precede the precision
specifier; this causes an indirection on the precision specifier (which now
becomes a field number).
This is useful when formatting, for example, numbers which have varying
precision depending on the mode of the instrument.
Binary numbers can also have an optional precision specifier which is used
to determine how many bits to print. For example, the specifier 'b4' will
print the lowest four bits of the parsed number.
There are serious restrictions on where an 's' field may appear: currently
sources 1 and 2 must be 's', and no others may be 's'.
Alarm Information
The value source is followed by optional alarm information, indicated by a
commercial at sign '@' with a source indicator and a starting bit indicator.
All alarm information is presumed to be two bits long (low and high). The
bitfield extraction is performed on the integer part of the source. Typical
alarm information would appear as '@6.4'.
Translation Table
Then, there appears an optional translation table within braces '{}'. This is
a string of words separated by spaces. An example translation table would
be '{Code_0 Code_1 Code_2 Code_3}'. The value, once extracted, is used
as a zero-based index into the translation table to determine the string to
display.
Selection Table
Then there appears an optional selection table within parentheses '(...)'.
This is a string of numbers separated by spaces '(0 1)'. The selection table
lists the translation table entries which the user may select from when
setting the parameter. This is not necessarily the same as the entries which
may be displayed.
Button Designator
Then there appears an optional button designator. This will be one of 'B',
'I', 'L', 'T', or 'N'.
B- Indicates a button which pops up an input dialog prompting the
user for a new value using the designated input format. The input
format is specified from the 'B' through the subsequent semicolon.

Record Layout Definition
I—Indicates a button which pops up a selection list with input
translation. That is, the values read are translated before they are
compared to the selection list options.
L—Indicates a button which pops up a selection list without any
translation. The output value is the number of the selected option.
T—Indicates a button which pops up a selection list with output
translation. The number of the option selected is used as an index into
the translation table to generate an output string.
N—Indicates a button which only sends the subsequent command to
the instrument. No user-prompting happens.
The following string through an optional ‘|’ or the end of the line is the
command which is to be sent to the instrument upon the completion of the
button selection. The command string should normally contain print-style
formatting to include the user input. If a ‘|’ is present, it indicates a
command which is sent to the instrument upon successful completion of
the button command to update the value field.
Examples
Some examples ('\n' is the C syntax for an end-of-line character):
'Concentrations\n'
This is a single text-only line.
'\n'
This is a single blank line.
' NO:3s\n'
This is a line which appears slightly indented. The text field is 'NO', the
value is taken from the third element of the data response, and interpreted
as a string.
' NO:18sBd.ddd;set no coef %s\n'
This is a line which also appears slightly indented. The next field is also
'NO', but the value is taken from the eighteenth element of the data
response, again interpreted as a string. A button appears on this line which,
when pressed, pops up an input dialog which will state "Please enter a new
value for NO using a d.ddd format." The string entered by the user is used
to construct the output command. If the user enters, for example, '1.234',
the constructed command will be 'set no coef 1.234'.

' NO:21f{Code_0 Code_1 Code_2 Code_3 Code_4 Code_5 Code_6
Code_7 Code_8 Code_9 Code_10 Code_11}Lset range no %d\n'
This is a line which appears slightly indented, the title is again 'NO', and
the value is the twenty-first element of the data response, interpreted as a
floating-point number. There is a no-translation button which creates a
selection list of twelve "Code nn" options. The number of the user
selection is used to create the output command.
'Mode:6.12-13x{local remote service service}(0 1)Tset mode
%s\n'
This is a line which has a title of 'Mode' and value taken from the sixth
field of the data response. There is a bitfield extraction of bits 12 through
13 from the source (the value type is not important here because the value
is being translated to an output string). Once the bits have been extracted,
they are shifted down to the bit-zero position. Thus, the possible values of
this example will be 0 through 3. The translation list shows the words
which correspond to each input value, the zero index value appearing first
(0 -> local, 1 -> remote, etc.). The selection list shows that only the first
two values, in this case, are to be shown to the user when the button is
pressed. The 'T' button indicates full translation, input code to string, and
user selection number to output string.
'\xC'
This is a line that starts a new column (the \xC or ^L).
' Comp:6.11x{off on}Tset temp comp %s\n'
This shows that the bitfield end (the second part of a bitfield specification)
is optional. The bitfield will be one bit long, starting in this case at the
eleventh bit.
'Background:7f*8Bd.ddd;set o3 bkg %s\n'
This shows the use of indirect precision specifiers for floating point
displays. The background value is taken from the 7th element, and the
precision specifier is taken from the 8th. If the asterisk were not present, it
would indicate instead that 8 digits after the decimal point should be
displayed.

Appendix C
MODBUS Protocol
This appendix provides a description of the MODBUS Protocol Interface
and is supported both over RS-232/485 (RTU protocol) as well as TCP/IP
over Ethernet.
The MODBUS commands that are implemented are explained in detail in
this document. The MODBUS protocol support for the iSeries enables the
user to perform the functions of reading the various concentrations and
other measurement values, read the status of the digital outputs of the
analyzer, and to trigger or simulate the activation of a digital input to the
instrument. This is achieved by using the supported MODBUS parameters
listed below.
Up to three simultaneous connections are supported over Ethernet.
For details of the Model 5030i MODBUS Protocol specification, see the
following topics:

The data field varies depending on the function. For more description of
these data fields, see “Function Codes” below.
In MODBUS over serial, an error check is included in the message. This is
not necessary in MODBUS over TCP/IP because the higher-level protocols
ensure error-free transmission. The error check is a two-byte (16 bit) CRC
value.
This section describes the various function codes that are supported by the
Model 5030i.
Read Coils/Inputs read the status of the digital outputs (relays) in the
instrument. Issuing either of these function codes will generate the same
response.
These requests specify the starting address, i.e. the address of the first
output specified, and the number of outputs. The outputs are addressed
starting at zero. Therefore, outputs numbered 1–16 are addressed as 0–15.
The outputs in the response message are packed as one per bit of the data
field. Status is indicated as 1 = Active (on) and 0 = Inactive (off). The LSB
of the first data byte contains the output addressed in the query. The other

outputs follow toward the high end of this byte, and from low order to
high order in subsequent bytes. If the returned output quantity is not a
multiple of eight, the remaining bits in the final data byte will be padded
with zeros (toward the high order end of the byte). The Byte Count field
specifies the quantity of complete bytes of data.

By convention, bits within a byte are shown with the MSB to the left and
the LSB to the right. Thus, the outputs in the first byte are ’10 through 2’,
from left to right. In the last data byte, the status of outputs 15-11 is shown

Registers
Read Holding/Input Registers reads the measurement data from the
instrument. Issuing either of these function codes will generate the same

registers.
These registers are 16 bits each and are organized as shown below. All of
the values are reported as 32-bit IEEE standard 754 floating point format.
This uses 2 sequential registers, least significant 16 bits first.
The request specifies the starting register address and the number of
registers. Registers are addressed starting at zero. Therefore, registers
numbered 1–16 are addressed as 0–15. The register data in the response
message are packed as two bytes per register, with the binary contents right
justified within each byte. For each register, the first byte contains the high
order bits and the second contains the low order bits.

(0x05) Force (Write)
Single Coil
The Force (Write) Single Coil function simulates the activation of the
digital inputs in the instrument, which triggers the respective action.
This function code is used to set a single action to either ON or OFF. The
request specifies the address of the action to be forced. Actions are
addressed starting at zero. Therefore, action number 1 is addressed as 0.
The requested ON/OFF state is specified by a constant in the request data
field. A value of 0xFF00 requests the action to be ON. A value of 0x0000
requests it to be OFF. All other values are illegal and will not affect the
output. The normal response is an echo of the request, returned after the
state has been written.
Note This function will not work if the instrument is in service mode. ▲

Gesytec (Bayern-Hessen) Protocol
This appendix provides a description of the Gesytec (Bayern-Hessen or
BH) Protocol Interface and is supported both over RS-232/485 as well as
TCP/IP over Ethernet.
The Gesytec commands that are implemented are explained in detail in this
document. The Gesytec protocol support for the iSeries enables the user to
perform the functions of reading the various concentrations and to trigger
the instrument to be in sample/zero/span mode if valid for that instrument.
This is achieved by using the supported Gesytec commands listed below.
Up to three simultaneous connections are supported over Ethernet.
For details of the Model 5030i Gesytec Protocol specification, see the
following topics:

Gesytec (Bayern-Hessen) Protocol
TCP Communication Parameters
TCP Communication
Parameters
iSeries instruments support the Gesytec protocol over TCP/IP. The register
definition is the same as for the serial interface. Up to three simultaneous
connections are supported over Ethernet.
TCP connection port for Gesytec:
Instrument Address
9882
The Gesytec instrument address has a value between 0 and 127 and is
represented by a 3 digit ASCII number with leading zeros or leading spaces
if required (e.g. instrument address of 1 is represented as 001 or
<SP><SP>1). The default instrument address is 14.
The instrument address is the same as the Instrument ID used for C-Link
and MODBUS commands. This can be set via the front panel.
The instrument address is represented by <address> in the examples
throughout this document.
Note Device IDs 128 through 247 are not supported because of
limitations imposed by the C-Link protocol. ▲
Abbreviations Used
The following is a list of abbreviations used in this document:
<CR> is abbreviation for Carriage Return (ASCII code 0x0D)
<STX> is abbreviation for Start of Text (ASCII code 0x02)
<ETX> is abbreviation for End of Text (ASCII code 0x03)
<SP> is abbreviation for space (ASCII code 0x20)
Basic Command
Structure
The following is the basic structure of a Gesytec command:
<STX>Command text<ETX><BCC>
OR
<STX>Command text<CR>
Each command is framed by control characters, <STX> at the start and
terminated with either <ETX> or <CR>.
If a command is terminated with <ETX>, then two additional characters
<BCC> is attached after <ETX>. This is the block checksum.
Block Checksum Characters <BCC> may be added to the command to
prevent processing invalid commands.
D-2
Model 5030i SHARP Instruction Manual
Thermo Fisher Scientific
Gesytec (Bayern-Hessen) Protocol
Block Checksum Characters <BCC>
Block Checksum
Characters <BCC>
The Block Checksum Characters are calculated beginning with a seed value
of 00000000, binary (0x00), and bitwise exclusive ORing with each of the
characters of the command string (or response) including the framing
characters <STX> and <ETX>. The checksum works as an error check. The
command terminator determines the presence or absence of <BCC>.
If a command is terminated by <ETX> then the next two characters are the
checksum, if the command is terminated with <CR> no checksum is
attached.
The block checksum is represented by two characters, which represent a 2
digit hex number (1byte) (e.g. 1 byte 0xAB hex checksum will be
represented by the two characters ‘A’ & ‘B’).
The checksum is referred to as <BCC> throughout this document.
Gesytec Commands
Instrument Control Command
(ST)
The following commands are supported by the Gesytec protocol:
●
Instrument Control Command (ST)
●
Data Sampling/Data Query Command (DA)
There is one control command supported by the Gesytec protocol.
This <control command> is a single letter, which triggers an action in the
instrument. These commands are active only when service mode is inactive
and the zero/span option is present.
Command ‘N’ initiates a filter change.
The following are the different acceptable formats of the ST command:
<STX>ST<address><control command><ETX><BCC>
OR
<STX>ST<address><control command><CR>
OR
<STX>ST<address><SP><control command><CR>
OR
<STX>ST<address><SP><control command><ETX><BCC>
The <address> is optional, which means it can be left out completely. The
<address>, if present, must match the Instrument Address. Additional space
can be present after the <address>.
Thermo Fisher Scientific
Model 5030i SHARP Instruction Manual
D-3
Gesytec (Bayern-Hessen) Protocol
Gesytec Commands
If the received command does not satisfy the above formats, or if the
<address> does not match the Instrument Address, the command is
ignored.
This is a sample command to switch the instrument to initiate a filter
change, instrument address 14:
<STX>ST014<SP>N<CR>
Data Sampling/Data
Query Command
(DA)
This command initiates a data transfer from the instrument. The
instrument responds with measurement data, which depends on the range
mode and is listed in “Measurements reported in response to DA
command” below.
The command structure for a data query command is as follows:
<STX>DA<address><ETX><BCC>
The <address> is optional, which means it can be left out completely. The
<address>, if present, must match the Instrument Address. Additional space
can be present after the <address>.
If the <address> is left out, then no space is allowed in the query string.
A command with no address is also a valid command.
The following are the different acceptable formats of the DA command
with Instrument Address 14:
<STX>DA<CR>
<STX>DA014<CR>
<STX>DA<SP><14<ETX><BCC>
<STX>DA<ETX><BCC>
The data query string is valid and will be answered with data transmission
only if the command starts with <STX>, which is followed by the
characters DA, and the <address> (if present) matches the Instrument
Address, and the command is terminated with either <CR> with no
checksum or <ETX>, followed by the correct checksum <BCC>.
D-4
Model 5030i SHARP Instruction Manual
Thermo Fisher Scientific
Gesytec (Bayern-Hessen) Protocol
Gesytec Commands
Sample Data Reply String in response to Data Query Command (DA):
In response to a valid data query command, the instrument responds in the
following format:
<STX>MD09<SP><address><SP><measured
value1><SP><status><SP><SFKT><SP><address+1><SP><measured
value2><SP ><status><SP><SFKT><ETX><BCC>
The response uses the same command terminators as used by the received
command, i.e. if the received command was terminated with a <CR> then
the response is terminated with <CR>, and if the command was terminated
with a <ETX><BCC>, then the response is terminated with<ETX> and the
computed checksum <BCC>.
The 09 after the MD indicates that nine measurements are present in the
reply string, 10 for ten measurements and so on. This will also determine
the length of the reply string.
<address> is the Instrument Address. Each subsequent measurement
attached to the response will have the <address + X>, where X keeps
incrementing by 1 for each measurement included.
<measured value> is the concentration value in currently selected gas units,
represented as exponential representation with 4 characters mantissa and 2
characters exponent, each with sign.
Mantissa: sign and 4 digits. The decimal point is assumed to be after the
first digit and is not transmitted.
Exponent: sign and 2 digits.
Example:
-5384000.0
is represented as -5384+06
+0.04567
is represented as +4567-02
<status>: is formed by < operating status > and < error status > and
separated by a space, i.e.:
<operating status><SP><error status>
Each of the two (<operating status> and <error status>) are formed by two
characters, each representing a 2 digit hex number which is one byte (8
Bits) operation status and one byte (8 Bits) error status.
These two bytes contain the information about the main operating
conditions of the instrument at that instant. For details on how to interpret
the status bytes, refer to Table D–1 and Table D–2 below.
<SFKT>: is the space provided for future use for special function. It
currently contains a string of ten 0’s, i.e. <0000000000>.
