1. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
1.1
GENERAL
The Model 5100-02-IT Catalytic Bead Combustible Gas Sensor Module
is a member of the Sentry Information Technology ”IT” family of gas
sensor transmitter modules. IT modules offer a broad array of features
including:
•
Integral Alphanumeric display
•
180 day calibration frequency
•
Integral alarm relays (3)
•
4-20 mA output
•
Modbus® RTU interface
•
SMC Sentry interface
•
316 Stainless steel enclosure option
•
Remote alarm reset
•
Auxiliary relay option
•
Remote sensor option
• Auxiliary connector option
IT modules are designed, and approved for installation and operation in hazardous locations.
1.2
PRODUCT CONFIGURATION
Various module configuration options are available. Where applicable, these options are factory configured
prior to shipment.
1.3
THEORY OF OPERATION
Catalytic bead gas sensors detect gas by comparing the resistance of two heated elements. One element is
catalytic to enhance the burning of combustible gases, the other element is passive. Electronic circuits are
used to compare the change in the catalytic bead resistance relative to the passive bead. The relative change
is calibrated to determine the concentration of the gas of interest.
1.4
MODES OF OPERATION
1.4.1 SENTRY INTERFACE
All IT gas sensor modules can be installed on Sierra Monitor Sentry Model 5000 controllers. Catalytic bead
modules communicate as a combustible gas sensor module (Type 2 communication) and are automatically
detected by the Sentry controller. When it is installed in a Sentry system the IT module must have a unique
address which can be established by setting an address between 1 and 8 on the rotary switch accessible
from the cover plate as illustrated in Figure 3-1. Figure 3-4 in this manual provides the wiring terminations
for connections to the Sentry controller.
When the module is operated in conjunction with a Sentry controller, the alarm relay setup (See section
4.3) should be set to “Sentry”, allowing the Sentry controller to manage alarm relay action rather than the
5100-02-IT Gas Sensor Module.
An available option, applicable only to Sentry installations, is a connector card which allows daisy chain
installation using the Sentry multiplex capability. Use of the connector card reduces costs by avoiding the
requirement for wiring junction boxes. The connector card has two sets of connections, allowing for a
continuous run to the next module.

1.4.2 MODBUS OPERATION
All IT gas sensor modules have a Modbus RTU RS-485 serial interface to allow direct connection to any
standard PLC or DCS. The Module Address Switch (section 3.5) allows the user to select Modbus
addresses 1 thru 15. Switch position “0” allows the user to set addresses up to 254 using the s Menu (See
Table 4-3). Figure 3-4 provides the wiring terminations for Modbus connections.
1.4.3 ANALOG OPERATION
All IT gas sensor modules have a 4-20 mA interface to allow direct connection to standard analog
indicators or PLCs. The standard Model 5100-02-IT provides a 4-20 mA analog interface which allows
power and loop connections. When IT modules are to be operated with analog interface, each module
requires individual home run wiring and no unique address is required. Figure 3-3 provides the wiring
terminations for 4-20 mA connections.
1.4.4 AUXILIARY RELAY OPERATION (APPENDIX E)
While the 5100-02-IT has three internal 0.25 amp relays (high alarm, low alarm and trouble) as standard,
an available option is an Auxiliary Relay Assembly, Part Number 5394-62, which provides 8 amp alarm
relays for each of the two conditions, low alarm and high alarm.
1.4.5 ENHANCED CONNECTION (APPENDIX F)
An Auxiliary Connection Assembly, Part Number 5394-61, applicable to Sentry and RS-485 installations
only, provides connections capable of accepting 12 AWG wire. Additionally, the enhancement acts as a
junction box providing connections for the next module in the run, when utilizing the Sentry multiplexing
capability.
1.4.6 AUXILIARY RS-485 MULTIDROP (APPENDIX G)
The Auxiliary RS-485 Multidrop Connection Assembly, Part Number 5394-64, provides the additional
terminal connectors to enable the user to connect the In/Out terminations of a RS-485 connection.
1.4.7 REMOTE SENSOR (APPENDIX D)
Extension kit 5394-51 can be used to remotely mount the sensor up to 50’ from the transmitter.
1.4.8 REMOTE ALARM RESET
An input is available for connection of remote alarm reset/acknowledge. Figure 3-5 provides the wiring
termination for connecting the remote alarm reset.
1.5
MECHANICAL
The sensor module is comprised of the following three primary components:
1.5.1 ENCLOSURE

INTERCONNECT WIRING
Not supplied with the sensor module, but necessary to the installation and operation is the multi conductor
wiring which connects the module to its power source and controller. Before this wiring is installed it is
important to read and understand the control system installation instructions to determine wiring requirements
and alternatives.
1.7 POWER REQUIREMENTS
IT modules operate on DC power between 10 VDC and 30 VDC. Regulated DC power must be supplied from
a separate source, or from an approved Sentry or IT Controller.

2. CAUTIONS & WARNINGS
2.1
INTRODUCTION
Although IT Transmitter Modules are designed and constructed for installation and operation in industrial
applications including "hostile" environments, caution should be taken to insure that the installation is made in
compliance with this instruction manual and that certain procedures and conditions are avoided. This chapter
discusses the necessary cautions. Read the entire chapter prior to installation of the equipment.
2.2
IT MODULES - GENERAL
Avoid installing sensor modules where they will be unnecessarily exposed to wind, dust, water (i.e. direct hose
down), shock, or vibration. Observe temperature range limitations.
Sensors may be adversely affected by prolonged exposure to certain materials. Loss of sensitivity, or
corrosion, may be gradual if such materials are present in low concentrations. These materials include:
Halides (compounds containing chlorine, fluorine, bromine, iodine), acid vapors, caustic liquids or mists.
Care has been taken by the manufacturer to ship modules in protective packaging to avoid contamination prior
to installation. It is recommended that the modules remain protected during installation and that the covering
be removed immediately prior to system start-up.
During normal use the sensor is protected from dirt and oil contamination by a sintered metal cover. If this
cover becomes clogged, the response of the sensor will be reduced. Protect the sensor from contamination
by careful placement, or by use of rain and dust shields.
Sensor modules must not be painted. Paint may contain compounds which will contaminate the sensor. Paint
will cause clogging of the sintered metal cover and will cause difficulties during attachment of the calibration
head or other maintenance activity. It is recommended that the module be tagged "DO NOT PAINT".
2.3
WIRING
The manufacturer recommends that extra caution be taken where the installation is near any sources of
electromagnetic or radio frequency interference. Precautions include:
•
Avoid running sensor module cable close to high power cables, radio transmission lines, or cables
subject to pulses of high current.
•
Avoid running cables near large electric motors or generators.
•
When the sensor module is to be operated in analog (4-20mA output) mode shielded cable is required.
•
When the risk of interference is present use shielded cables. In conduit installations the shield should
be connected to the conduit. In cable applications the shield should be connected to instrument
ground.
•
All splices must be via either a termination hardware system or soldered. Improperly spliced cable can
result in corrosion, resistance changes and system errors.
NOTE
Installation and wiring must be in accordance with the National Electrical Code.
Voltage AC conductors are not to be run in the same conduit as voltage DC
conductors.

NOTE
All IT modules are factory pre-configured and calibrated.
All modules are tagged to indicate the configuration including the sensor module number.
Identify all components during unpacking and install using the factory configuration.
3.1
SENSOR MODULE LOCATIONS
Select locations for each sensor module based on the following:
3.2
•
Modules should be placed close to the potential source of gas.
•
Modules should be placed in areas accessible for calibration.
•
Sensors should be pointed down and the conduit should include an inverse trap to reduce moisture
(condensation) from accumulating in the electronics enclosure.
•
Remote calibration fitting (5360-00) can be used to facilitate calibration gas delivery. Run polyurethane
tubing (1/4” O.D. x 1/8” I.D.) from fitting to an accessible location.
WIRING
3.2.1 ANALOG 4-20 MA OPERATION
The 4-20 mA output for the 5100-02-IT can be either 3-wire (using the 5394-61 Connector Board) or 4-wire
operation. If using 3-wire operation, use a minimum of 18 AWG, shielded, 3-conductor cable up to 2000’.
For 4-wire operation, use a minimum of 2 each, 18 AWG, twisted, shielded, pair up to 2000’.
3.2.2 MODBUS OPERATION USING RS-485 CONNECTION
Use a minimum of 18 AWG, 2 conductor for DC power connection. No shield required. In addition use a
minimum of 24 AWG, low capacitance, shielded data cable for RS-485 half duplex communication. The
installation may be planned in a manner which provides up to 32 sensor modules on a single home run.
3.2.3 SENTRY OPERATION USING SMC SENTRY CONNECTION
Use a minimum of 18 AWG, 3-conductor cable up to 2000’. The cable may or may not be shielded. We
recommend shielded cable in circumstances that there could be RF or EM interference present. Shield to
be terminated and grounded only at the Sentry controller. Shield must be cut and dressed at the module
end so that no part of it comes in contact with the conduit or ground.
NOTE:
Be sure to follow all local electric code and safety requirements when installing the 5100-02-IT Gas Sensor Module
3.2.4 GENERAL
Install conduit as required by local code or construction specifications. When sensor modules are to be
multiplexed for Sentry or RS-485 communication two alternatives may be planned:
•
Install splice boxes above each sensor module. Use multi-position positive contact terminals to
connect daisy chain wiring and provide a pigtail to connect to the sensor module transmitter board.
•
Use Auxiliary Connection Assembly, Model 5394-61. The Auxiliary Connection Assembly plugs into
the sensor module transmitter and provides daisy chain wiring.
NOTE
The drain wire of shielded cable must NOT be used as one of the conductors.
Installation and wiring must be in accordance with the National Electrical Code. Temperature
o
rating of cable wire must be at least 75 C. If cable runs through higher temperature
environments, it must be specified for that environment.

CONFIGURE SET-POINTS
The sensor module set-points menu is used to initially set-up the alarm set points, relay actions, gas type and
range, 4-20 mA action and RS-485/Sentry address and baud rates (See Menu Key in Appendix J).
•
Alarm Set-points: Once the Set-up menu is selected, press [E] to activate the Alarm Set-point
screen. Use the [▲] or [▼] keys to select Low Alarm or High Alarm menu. Key [▲] will adjust the
setpoint upwards and Key [▼] will adjust the value downwards. Once it reaches the desired
setpoint, Key [E] will accept it and ACK will appear. Set-points can be configured using this menu to
values between 0 and 60.
•
Alarm Relay Set-up: Once the Set-up menu is selected, press key [▼] once and press [E] to
activate the Relay Set-up menu. Use the [▲] or [▼] keys to select High Alarm or Low Alarm relay
menu and press [E]. Use the [▲] or [▼] keys to select the correct alarm relay action for the
application, Latch, Sentry or Non-Latch. Selecting “Sentry” enables the Sentry controller to make all
alarm action decisions. * indicates the current selection.
•
Gas Factor: A calibration standard of Methane or Propane may be used in conjunction with scaling
factors to cause alarm function in %LEL scale of another gas. See Appendix I for a list of the scaling
factors. Note that if the 5100-02-IT is interfaced to a Sentry controller that the gas factor can be set in
the Sentry or the Gas Sensor Module but NOT IN BOTH. It is recommended that the gas factor be
adjusted in the Gas Sensor Module so that the display values on both the Gas Sensor Module and
the Sentry are matched. Note that gas factors are not applicable during calibration.
•
4-20mA: Once the Set-up menu is selected, press key [▼] three times and press [E] to activate the
4-20mA Set-up menu. Use the [▲] or [▼] keys to select Calib, or CalibOut TblOut menu and press
[E]. The “Calib” section of the menu allows the user to calibrate the 4 mA and 20 mA outputs. To
calibrate the 4 mA and 20 mA outputs it is necessary to have an amp meter connected to the 510028-IT and upon selecting the 4 mA output calibration then the [▲] or [▼] keys can be used to adjust
the 4 mA reading on the amp meter until it reads 4 mA. Similar steps can then be performed for the
20 mA output. The CalibOut section allows the user to select the 4-20 mA output action desired
during calibration. * indicates the current selected value. Available selections include:
ƒ

Track – the 4-20mA value tracks the calibration gas exposed to the gas sensor module
Zero – the 4-20mA value is held at 0mA during calibration
C1.50mA – the 4-20mA value is held at 1.50mA during calibration
C4.00mA – the 4-20mA value is held at 4.0mA during calibration.
The Tbl Out menu enables the user to select the mA output value for the Trouble Alarm. Select
“T2.5mA” to choose the 2.5mA default valve. Or select “User mA” and use the [▲] or [▼] keys to
select any valve between 0.5mA and 3.7mA.
•
RS-485 - Once the Set-up menu is selected, press key [▼] four times and press [E] to activate the
RS-485/Sentry Set-up menu. Use the [▲] or [▼] keys to select Address or Baud rate menu and
press [E]. Note that the 5100-28-IT has a rotary switch on the faceplate and it is used to select
addresses 1-15. When connected to Sentry the user can select 1-8 and using Modbus RS-485 the
user can select addresses 1-15. For Modbus addresses above 15, set the rotary switch to 0 and
then use the “Address” menu to select any address between 16 and 254. The Baud rate menu
allows the user to select a baud rate of 38400, 19200, 9600, 4800 or 2400. * indicates current
selection.

5. CALIBRATION
5.1
CALIBRATION FREQUENCY
The manufacturer specifies that sensor modules must be calibrated every 180 days. Periodic functional tests are
advisable for critical applications and hostile environments.
The sensor module microprocessor software includes high level self checking algorithms which provide continuous
sensor diagnostic and self adjustment. Users may elect to increase calibration periods based on low drift
experience during the first two calibration periods.
5.2
CALIBRATION PREPARATION
Calibration of the sensor is accomplished by simple menu based steps and application of span gas.
NOTE
If an error is made during any stage of the calibration process, hold the magnet stick at the
Switch 1 for 10 seconds. A scrolling display will indicate “Operate Mode” and the sensor module
will exit the calibration activity and return to normal operating mode. The calibration procedure
can then be restarted.
Calibration must be performed only when the area is known to be clear of combustible gas. If necessary, use a
portable instrument to confirm that there is no background combustible gas.
For compliance with Factory Mutual (FM) Approvals, the Sierra Monitor Model 1200-26, 1250-01, 1256-01, 1260 02 and 1260-42 are the FM Approved calibration gas delivery devices. Use Model 5358-01 Calibration Adapter or
Model 5360-00 Gas Delivery Fitting.
5.2.1 CALIBRATION GAS DELIVERY METHODS
Calibration gas can be delivered to the sensors via the following delivery devices:
Model 5358-01: Calibration Adapter - use with portable calibrators. See Fig 5-1.
Model 5360-00: Calibration Gas Delivery fitting - permanently installed fitting
which allows tubing to be run to a convenient delivery location.
5.2.2 CALIBRATION PROCEDURE
Table 5-1 shows the step by step process of the calibration procedure.
The procedures requires that the menu “keys” be activated using the magnet
stick. Each key press steps through the process of setting the zero value for
clean air and then setting the span value.
At each of these steps, apply calibration gas of the value corresponding to the
setting accepted on the sensor module display.
Figure 5-1
Model 5358-01 Calibration Adapter
5.2.3 SENSOR EXPOSURE TO GAS
Calibration gas must be delivered to the sensor using the flow rate and duration listed in below:
Model
Gas
5100-02-IT Combustible
Flow
100-300 cc/min
Period
Until Stable (minimum 3 minutes.)
NOTE:
Following calibration, the module counts down for 300 seconds. During this time the module is updating its internal memory and it
is very important that its power not be interrupted
