OXYGEN (O2) CALIBRATION
There is no menu option to select oxygen (O2) calibration. Calibration for this sensor is automatically performed at start up by the
electronics. Calibration is also performed during any manual
zeroing. Calibration can be verified using 100% nitrogen. The
readings should be less than 0.4%.
NOTE: Improper calibration is indicated by “Bad Cal” when
save is attempted. Calibration will be based on the last
successful calibration. Recalibration is recommended. The
calibration due date will not be updated until successful
calibration has occurred. Any instrument that does not
calibrate requires service. Contact SENSIT TECHNOLOGIES for details.

see the BH TEST portion of this manual located on page 13,
under Bar Hole Test.
12. At any time the operator may save the readings on the display by pressing the SAVE button on the right. This will save all
readings for download at a later time. The memory will hold a
maximum of 16 events. It is factory set at 6. The most recent
save is first during download.
13. If the instrument encounters a gas it is not calibrated to, it
may read “NSR” followed by a number. If the instrument is calibrated for natural gas “NSR” likely indicates a heavy gas ( i.e.:
heavier than air, such as gasoline, propane, carbon dioxide, etc.).
If the instrument is calibrated for propane, “NSR” likely indicates
gas lighter than air such as hydrogen, helium, methane or natural

Pressing the left button at this time will return the instrument to
the working (gas reading) display. The center button accesses
the menu option.
These include:
14. Following Federal, State, Municipal and/or Company procedures move to the areas where gas readings are suspected or
must be tested. Use necessary accessories to draw samples
from areas not accessible with the instrument itself, such as
confined spaces or flue gases. During sampling the respective
readings may change. Audible and visual alarms will activate
when the preset limits are reached.
PRINT MENU:Printing session, calibration, Bar Hole Test logs
and accessing Smart-Cal Automatic Calibration Station.
CALIBRATION:Calibrate CO, H2S, LEL, % methane, propane
and access Smart-Cal Automatic Calibration Station.
GAS TYPE:Select Natural/Methane or Propane as primary gas
to be sensed.
POWER OFF:Set the automatic shut off timer in minutes.
SET CLOCK:Set date and time.
SHOW CAL LOG:Display last calibration of all gasses.
SHOW SES LOG:Display saved gas reading data with date
and time.
SHOW BH TEST:Display up to the last16 completed Bar Hole
Tests.

BAR HOLE TEST
BAR HOLE TEST continued from page13
To assist pinpointing the location of underground leaks the Bar
Hole Test feature may be used. When used, a timed sample of
15 seconds (at higher sampling rate than normal operation) will
display both sustained and peak readings.
7. To test the next area press and hold the ZERO button until
all readings are at 0%. With the ZERO button still held down,
place the probe assembly (attached to the instrument) into the
next hole to be tested. Release the ZERO button and the timer
will restart.
8. Pressing the left button at any time will take you back to the
working display.
9. A gas reading from a gas other than what the instrument is
calibrated to will be indicated by an “NSR” reading. To locate a
leak of this type go to the GAS TYPE selection in the menu and
change to the other gas listed. Heavy hydrocarbons are best
located using the “PROPANE” selection. Methane is best located using the “NATURAL” selection. A hydrocarbon filter may
be necessary when both natural gas and a heavy hydrocarbon
such as gasoline or propane are present.
1. To access the Barhole feature from the working display press
the BH TEST button. Pressing the button for more than 5 seconds will access the user menu. Only press the button for 1-2
seconds.

5. Press the center button again. The pump will start as indicated by “BH PUMP ON” followed by the timer showing the
number of seconds remaining in the test.
6. At the end of the test, the pump will turn off as indicated by
“BH PUMP OFF”. The sustained concentration is indicated by
the “%ON” while the peak or accumulated concentration is indicated by “%PK”. Both of these readings will remain on the screen
until the ZERO button is held and the gas is cleared from the
probe assembly. Both readings are presented as % gas by
volume.

CALIBRATION CHECK
To verify the accuracy of any TRAK-IT®III CGI, it must be exposed to a known concentration of test gas that will test any
sensor combination included in your particular model. Any sensor that does not meet the specifications listed in this manual
may require calibration or repair. A calibration check does not
update the calibration due date. Full calibration is required to
update these times.
A calibration past due message will illuminate during warm-up if
calibration has not been performed per your company specified
interval. Anytime it is suspected the TRAK-IT®III CGI is not
working properly, check calibration.
