Welcome
Thank you for purchasing the TR250Z Oxygen Sensor. The TR250Z is a long life 25% or 95% oxygen level transmitter that provides multiple analog linear outputs of O2 concentrations. It’s designed to be a rugged, maintenance‐free add‐on for OEMs or can be used as a desktop device. In addition, it can be calibrated in normal air, or can use a calibration gas of any known oxygen concentration. Our goal is to make high‐quality, low‐cost gas detection and indoor air quality products available to you. Please take some time to read through this manual in order to get the most out of your meter. Make sure to visit our website regularly to find more information about this product and to download the software free. Once you download and install the software, you can use the “Check for updates” function under the Help menu to search for new updates. Please also pay special attention to the important safeguards shown on the pages ahead. Important Safeguards
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock and/or injury to persons, basic safety precautions should always be followed when using electrical appliances, including the following: 1. READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THIS DEVICE! 2. Use only the supplied power supply to operate the unit. 3. Ensure that when sampling in a closed environment that the tubes are securely fashioned to the device. 4. Do not operate with a blocked off sample path. 5. Do not operate the device if it is malfunctioning. 6. Do not install the device outside in exposed conditions. Due to the nature of the design the enclosure cannot be made water‐tight and the unit must not be exposed to water. 7. Do not operate the device with the cover detached. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS!

Make sure you read through these instructions thoroughly before using your meter. This guide will help you familiarize with your meter in order to be as productive as you need to be in the least amount of time possible. Description
Display – Main interface to view current sensor readings and menu state. Will blink “STRT” upon applying power while the sensor warms up and stabilizes. LEDs – are in for lower right corner of the unit on the main PCB and are labeled S, E and P. S LED – Status LED. Blinks every time a complete measurement cycle is performed and the value is updated. Serve’s as a heartbeat for transmitter operation. E LED – Error LED. Will light if any abnormal conditions are detected within the device, primarily the sensor falling out of its recommended operating specifications will trigger this lamp. P LED – Power LED. Will be on continuously when power is applied to the unit. Buttons ‐ The unit has three surface mount buttons above the LEDs on the PCB. They can be gently and carefully pressed with your finger. These buttons allow you to access all aspects of sensors operation and test or calibrate different functional modules. Rev. 27 April, 2015

Standard Operation
The O2 transmitters comes factory calibrated for easy installation. During its life cycle calibration may become periodically necessary. We recommend performing a span O2 calibration every month for guaranteed operation and ensured accuracy. No other calibration is necessary during the life cycle of the sensor. Entering the Service Menu
To enter the service menu the buttons must be pressed in a factory‐set order. This code can be customized before shipment but by default will be 1‐2‐3. The buttons must be pressed within a half second of each other, else the unit will return to standard operating mode. When in the service menu the unit will not update the current O2 readings. Once you enter the menu the display will read “1234” or “2222”. Performing an Atmospheric Span Calibration

VDC = G‐ G+ O2 4‐20mA = SIG GND RS‐485 INTERFACE = A B GND RESET = RST 0-10V Output (Optional)
To get a 10 volt span (2‐10 volt in practice) from a 4‐20 mA line, add a 500 ohm resistor from signal to ground. 500 ohms x .004 amps = 2 volts and 500 ohms x .020 amps = 10 volts. Install the resistor at the receiving end, as this eliminates all voltage drops from resistance in the wire. 4‐20mA and 2‐10V are used so it can be determined if the transmitter is actually present. Less than 4mA or 2V: no transmitter, not connected or no signal. Rev. 27 April, 2015

Theory of Operation
The zirconia oxygen sensor utilizes solid‐state electrochemical reactions to produce a voltage proportional to the current oxygen. This voltage is then digitalized and filtered to a usable value. The oxygen sensor has also been factory calibrated to meet specifications. Calibration
The calibration process varies depending on the type of unit and whether it has optional data logging functionality or not. All units are factory‐calibrated with multiple reference points of gas, and have been verified to be accurate within their specific functionality before shipment. However, if the unit is severely jolted or otherwise mechanically disturbed, the sensor can drift requiring recalibration. All calibration procedures follow a single‐point calibration routine that effectively shifts the zero‐point of the O2 sensor. Calibrating using MODBUS or PC Connection
You can Download the software directly and free from this link in our website. (http://www.co2meter.com/pages/downloads) More precise calibrations can be performed using the PC connection. The unit can be attached to a PC using an optional USB to RS‐485 cable, available on our website, or via a mini‐USB cable to the internal USB connection. Calibration of the Oxygen Sensor In the desktop software application O2 can be calibrated individually. The O2 sensor can be calibrated to 0% and then to 20.9%. During normal operation 0% calibration of the oxygen transmitter should not be necessary. Calibration can also be performed over MODBUS, see additional documentation for MODBUS registers.

Calibration can be performed using either 0% CO2 calibration gas (typically nitrogen, Argon, etc.), or using a fresh source of air, assumed to be approximately 20.9% O2. Attach calibration gas to the unit and connect the unit to a personal computer. Open the calibration screen in the DAS software. Click the “Calibrate” button in the calibration tab for the desired gas, located in the “Configure Sensor” screen. As long as the gas concentration is stable, the unit should instantly reflect the calibrated value. This can be confirmed by watching the display. To see the calibration value in real time, click in the “Collect Real time” button to capture these values before opening the configuration screen. Real‐time capture Zero or Fresh Air Calibration
Apply gas and select the appropriate concentration and Click the “Calibrate” button. The sensor reading should instantly reflect the calibration. NOTE: DO NOT ADJUST THE SPAN VALUE. Rev. 27 April, 2015
