3 Unit description
The on-line hardness monitor Trend Analyser is a compact analysis unit which is able to
monitor the presents of various chemicals in water. In these instructions, only the on-line
monitoring of total hardness and carbonate hardness are described.
3.1 Principle of Function
The Trend Analyser is an on-line analyser for the automatic ascertainment of water
parameters by the colorimetric test method. Following the introduction of a reagent into
the water sample, a colour reaction occurs. Depending on the chosen method, the unit
either evaluates the intensity of the colour or ascertains the value at which the colour
changes. From this information the Trend Analyser calculates the concentration of the
chemical content. The unit can only ascertain one parameter. The method and the
measurement range are determined by the reagent.
3.2 Unit overview
The Trend Analyser has one variation:
1. Analysis unit in protective case
In addition an optional plastic case is available to
protect the unit in environments where extreme
levels of dirt and grease are expected. (Fig. 2) The
Analysis unit on the wall mounting plate is easily
fixed in the protective case by 4 screws. If the
analysis unit and the protective case are ordered
together, they will be delivered assembled.
Fig. 1:PACON5000 in protective housing
The analysis unit is operated by means of a menu, a graphic display and 6 keys on the
control panel.

3.5 BOB-Operation
The abbreviation BOB stands for „Betrieb ohne Beobachtung“(which means „Operation
without Observation“). This a special term found in the German ‘TÜV’ rules for boilerhouses. These rules require that an analysis unit has enough reagent to last for 72 hours for
unmanned operation.
A relay output can be used, for example to activate an alarm if the reagent level is below
that necessary for the minimum time interval.
The analysis unit is specially designed for ‚BOB‘-operation. Boiler systems require an
accurate monitoring of water quality, especially the hardness of the boiler supply water
according to the technical guide-lines for boiler systems TRD 604 (Technische Regeln für
Dampfkessel, published by the ‘TÜV’).
The analysis unit calculates the consumption of reagent to make sure that enough reagent
is available for reliable measurements during the period of unobserved operation.
If the next 72 hour ‘BOB’-operation cannot be reliably guaranteed, the alarm “Reagent
shortage” will be activated. Please check to see that the reagent is within its best before
date. Only use fresh reagent.
3.6 Installation requirements
Reagents / Maintenance sets / Accessories
There are various reagents available for the Trend Analyser that cover a wide range of
measurement. When choosing the correct reagent, it is important that the hardness range
to be monitored lies in the middle of the measurement range of the reagent.
In all, the Trend Analyser covers the measurement range of 3.6 - 5349 µmol/l. There are 11
reagents available:
The order numbers of the reagents (500ml) are shown in the following table. Some

5 Installation
5.1 Wall mounting with case
The analyser can be delivered with a compact protection case as an optional extra. The case
is delivered with the unit already mounted inside and 4 mounting brackets for fixing the
case as shown in the drilling plan below:
To allow for opening the case, the designated mounting space must be at least
450x350mm (D x H).
Alternatively, the 4 brackets can be fixed at 45 or 90
90°°. The drawing pictures vertical fixing.
5.2 Water Connections
The ideal input pressure for the analysis unit is between 1 and 2 bar, but at least 0.2 bar. In
the water inlet pipe is an input valve which, when closed, allows the measuring chamber to
operate without pressure. The unit can also be operated with an input pressure of up to 5
bar, however when the pressure is released, gassing may occur.
It is recommended to reduce the pressure with a simple valve. A pressure reducer is not
necessary.
The sample water must be clear and free of solid particles or a filter installed. Solid
particles in the water can damage the magnet valve or prevent it from closing. If the
magnet valve is blocked or doesn
doesn’’t open and close properly, the measuring chamber will
not be properly flushed and this could lead to erroneous measurements.
The sample water temperature should not be less than 5 °C or greater than 40 °C.
If the sample water has a higher temperature, a pre-cooler should be installed. These
coolers are available as accessories.
The analysis unit has 2 connections with fittings for plastic pipes with an external diameter
of 6mm for the water inlet (left) and the water outlet (right). These only need to be pushed
into the fittings.
Input pressure: ca. 0.2 - 5.0 bar
(1-2 bar recommended)
Input
Softening
Output
Open funnel
Hand valve
The water outlet should be as short as possible and the water should be able to run away
vertically and freely. The system output must be at atmospheric pressure. The output
pressure must not exceed the input pressure. The pipes should not be laid horizontally.
Pipes should not exceed 2m in length. The output water must run into an open funnel or
wastewater pipe/drain.
5.3 Operating with pressure-less sample water
If the sample water is not under pressure, a simple membrane or immersion pump is
necessary to deliver the sample to the analysis unit. Relay 4 can be used for this purpose.
6 Electrical Installation
Please note that all electrical installation work should only be carried out by authorised and
qualified personnel and according to current regulations. Make sure that cables are not
connected to power.
The required supply voltage is: 85 to 264 Vac / 47 to 63 Hz!

valve.
Reagent dosing
When the diagnosis starts, the dosing pump can be seen to turn. It can also be heard. If this
is not the case, check the 4 pole connector on the circuit board. If you can hear the motor
but there is no movement, then the pump-cassette is defect. If the connection are okay and
the pump can neither be seen or heard, then the pump is defect or there is a defect in the
electronics.
Magnetic stirrer
The stirrer in the measurement chamber should spin - at first slowly – then increasing to its
maximum speed. If the stirrer doesn’t spin, check the connection to the circuit board (red
plug).
Remove the chamber and check that nothing is obstructing the movement of the drive disk.
If the above are okay, change the motor assembly.
Relay 1 to 4
When this function is selected, you should hear the relays clicking as they operate.
Using a continuity meter or buzzer, measure between COM and A then COM and B. If there
is no continuity when the relay contacts close or there is no sound of clicking, the control
circuit board must be changed.
Current loop
To test the current loop, a test meter set to mA is necessary. Connect the meter probes to
the connector marked [20mA+ und 20mA-].
