Interstitial Tank Leak Alarm
ENGINEERING
Reliable monitoring of the interstitial space in double wall tanks
Over 40 years of capacitance experience stands behind the
2852-ILA leak alarm. The flexible cable probe continuously
monitors for the accumulation of liquid in the normally dry
tank wall.
• capacitance technology alarms on any liquid
• no moving parts
• remote alarm unit mounts safely away from tank site
The 2852-ILA probe monitors the interstitial space near the
bottom of the tank and locks in on the capacitance field
around the probe tip. Any liquid that intrudes into this
space will increase the capacitive field and initiate an alarm.
The leak source can be from the stored product leaking
from the tank or from groundwater leaking through the
outer wall.

INSTRUMENT OVERVIEW
The Arjay Interstitial Tank Leak Alarm provides a means for detecting the accumulation of liquid in
the interstitial space of double walled tanks and vessels. The Arjay probe has an active
capacitance sensor at the probe tip that monitors the normally dry space around it. Liquids have a
higher dielectric constant than the dry condition, which results in a increased capacitance reading
when liquid accumulates and displaces the air.
The remote mounted Arjay 2852 controller monitors the capacitance change of the probe and
activates a relay contact for use with alarms and control interlocks.
The probe tip should be
positioned at approximately the 7 o’clock position in cylindrical tanks or 20mm off the bottom of
vertical tanks to avoid nuisance alarms from condensation. The active probe tip is 100mm long to
increase sensitivity for both high and low dielectric liquids. The unit will alarm from an external wall
leak of groundwater into the space or an internal wall leak of product into the space
The complete 2852-ILA system consists of the probe, the PMC card, and the 2852 controller.
The standard ILA probe is constructed of a Flexible Tefzel coated cable with Flexible SS inactive
sheath. The PMC card is mounted in a junction box at the probe head. The PMC card translates
the capacitance signal from the sensor into a frequency pulse, which can then be transmitted up to
one kilometer to the 2852 controller via 2-wire shielded cable.
The model is intended for use in General Purpose non-hazardous areas. For hazardous location
use refer to Arjay Engineering Ltd. For appropriate model.

INSTALLATION
NOTE: If any damage to the instrument is found, please notify an Arjay Engineering
representative as soon as possible prior to installation.
2.1
Controller Installation
Choose the mounting location in accordance with good instrument practice. Extremes of ambient
temperature and vibration should be avoided (see specifications and installation drawing).
The 2850 controller may be mounted up to one kilometer from the PMC card using a minimum 18
gauge, 2-wire SHIELDED cable (Belden 8760 or Equivalent)..
Check the polarity of the + and - wiring between the controller and the PMC prior to powering on
the unit; + to + and - to - to avoid damage. Shield of cable should be connected to secondary
ground terminal marked as
. Incoming Earth ground should be connected to primary ground
terminal marked
on sub plate.
Important Note: The controller is factory set in a Failsafe mode. This means that the relays
are in an energized state during normal operation. The N.O. relay contact will be held closed and
the N.C. relay contact will be held open during a normal condition. This will allow the relay to return
to its non-energized (shelf) state during an alarm, fault or power failure condition. Wire
accordingly.
Note: Maximum Conduit size for installation size is ¾” FNPT.

Probe Installation
The probe length is custom ordered to the tank requirements. Determine the probe length so that
the probe tip is approximately at the 7 o’clock position of a cylindrical tank or 20 mm above the
bottom of a vertical tank.
In cylindrical tanks, the probes are flexible and will wrap around the tank belly. Accommodate this
circumference and the tank spool piece in the length calculation. A flanged connection is required
on these installations.
In vertical tanks a rigid probe is provided and can be mounted from the top or from the side (at the
bottom).
The PMC junction box should be mounted above the water surge level and in a protected area.
NOTE:
To ensure proper operation and electrical safety, make sure the 2852 enclosure and
the PMC junction box are electrically grounded.

SETUP AND ALARM
4.1
2852 Controller Setup
User Manual
Rev: 2.3
The 2852 controller has the following Setup parameters:
1. Sensitivity
The sensitivity determines the amount of picfard (pF) change required to cause an alarm. Since
the dielectrics of liquids can vary greatly, the unit is shipped with a factory default of 3.0 pF. At
this setting, the unit will alarm with about 50mm of water on the active probe or up to 100mm of
oil on the active probe. A pF to mm relationship for your liquid cannot be factory determined
due to dielectric and installation variables. If the Sensitivity value is changed in the field, it is
recommended to consult technical factory support before proceeding. A leak test maybe
advisable to confirm an alarm.
2. Defaults
Factory settings are pre-configured into the unit based on the most typical set-up required
for this application. This provides for a quick and easy calibration at site but can be
changed for special applications. If the setup has been changed, this will change back to the
factory defaults.
3. Net ID
The ID number is used only for network applications. To communicate on a network, each
controller must have a unique ID number. The factory default ID number is 1.
Important: If multiple units on a network have the same address, network errors will result.
4. Filter
Data filtering is used to smooth data from a sudden change and minimize fluctuating
readings. For example, a 5 second setting means the calculated value of the capacitance
and resulting values of pF will start to respond immediately but will take 5 seconds to reach
their final values. The factory default is 0 to provide an immediate and active response.
4.2
2852 Controller Alarms
The two relays on the 2852-ILA operate together. The follow parameters are available as a
common setting to the two relays:
1. Delay. Minimum time in seconds for an alarm to exist before the relays change to an alarm
state. The relay alarm state depends on the Relay Action and Failsafe settings. The factory
setting is 15 seconds to suppress false alarms due to sudden of intermittent flows or
disturbances in front of the sensor.
2. Action. This determines if the Alarms LEDs should activate when the pF reading rises
above or below the setpoint. The factory default is above the setpoint because the
application of air to liquid is an increase in capacitance.
3. Failsafe. Failsafe typically means that the relay is held in an energized state when in a
normal operating condition as opposed to an alarm condition. In an alarm condition, the
relay de-energizes which is identical to when the instrument power is shut off. The rationale
is that the alarm condition should match the Power Fail condition. The factory default is
Yes for Failsafe.

2852 Controller Network
The 2852 Controller may be monitored and calibrated via RS-485 protocol compatible digital
communications.
Typical features are:
1. Ease of wiring in multiple level point monitoring:
Up to 255 Model 2852's (or other Arjay 2800 Series level monitors) may be connected together
in a daisy chain (2 wire communication plus power wiring) connection to an Arjay Remote
Access monitor or customer control system which allows viewing data and setup of any of the
transmitters on the network. The relay and analog outputs may still be used if necessary.
2. Setup for the 2852 for network operation:
Each 2852 transmitter must have a unique ID number to connect in a network system.

TROUBLESHOOTING
CONDITION
DO THIS
1. Status LED is OFF and the LCD display
if off
Check the power to the unit. If the unit is a 12VDC or
24VDC model, check the external source and polarity
is correct. If the unit is a 100-240VAC model, then
check the Line, Neutral and Ground wiring is correct.
2. If the status LED is RED
This indicates a major error such as memory failure,
no probe signal etc. Check the following:




3. No mA output OR incorrect mA output.
IMPORTANT: THE UNIT SOURCES mA OUT
FROM THE mA OUTPUT TERMINAL. THIS
TERMINAL SHOULD NOT BE CONNECTED TO
+24V. IT IS NOT A 2 WIRE mA TRANSMITTER.
See Figure 4 for Electrical hookup details.



4. False Alarms
Make sure the PMC is installed
Make sure the PMC wiring is correct and there
are no breaks in the wiring. At the controller,
measure across the Probe Input terminals with a
DC meter. Make sure “Common” lead of meter is
on ‘-‘ terminal. It should read (+) 8 to (+)10 VDC
with the PMC connected and approximately 20 to
24 VDC with the PMC terminal disconnected.
Microprocessor may have lost its parameters due
to a surge in the line. Go to Diagnostic Menu (see
Flow Chart) to check the Calibration values,
frequency and capacitance values
Call Arjay Technical Support.




Disconnect external wires from mA output and
measure with mA Meter.
Check the mA output Action (direct or inverse)
and mA output Span are set as desired. See
section 7.0 Flow chart / Change menu.
If the mA output still does not match the level,
then call Arjay Technical Support.
Add some time delay in the unit
Make sure there is no external interference and
electrical noise such as agitators, high voltage
interference, turbulent flow, etc
Adjust the sensitivity to the next higher value.
Test after any changes to confirm an alarm
Make sure the active probe end is in a dry
condition
