Source 3000 Operation and Maintenance Manual
About This Manual
The Source 3000 is a portable, self-contained pneumatic pressure console with precision vernier. A rugged,
compact instrument manufactured by Condec, designed to provide ease of operation when used in conjunction
with multiple manufacturers electronic calibrators, for the calibration of a wide variety of pressure sensing and
measuring devices.
Equipped to perform rapid on-site calibrations, these instruments have proven to substantially reduce the cost,
system down-time and man-hours of labor normally associated with these routine service functions.
This instrument is an all mechanical device that combines a 15 cubic foot, 3000 PSI cylinder with our precision
Orion 2C vernier. The unit has multiple ports. Front panel gages tell the operator system pressure, as well as,
remaining pressure in the internal cylinder. A pressure regulator will act as a pressure limiter so that the operator
can not over pressure a unit under test. Adapter fittings are supplied for the customer to put on their fill hose and
test hose.
This manual has been written to give the user a simple and clear explanation of how to operate, and troubleshoot
these instruments.
Warning
Before attempting to use the Source 3000, Self Contained Pressure Source, the following
instructions must be carefully read and understood by personnel utilizing the equipment.
This is a high-pressure system. While a substantial effort has been expended to make this
equipment safe, simple and fool-proof to operate, it is strongly recommended that only
personnel formally trained in the use of pneumatic pressure equipment be permitted to
operate it. Potentially dangerous conditions could be produced through negligent handling
or operation of the console due to the high pressure cylinder contained within the unit.
These units are strictly for use with pneumatic pressures. Erroneous readings and potential
damage could result from the introduction of hydraulic fluids into the internal tubing lines.
Authorized distributors and their employees can view or download this manual from the Condec
distributor site at www.4condec.com.

Introduction
The Source 3000 represents the latest in technology, offering a combination of features, performance, versatility
and reliability not previously available in a single, self-contained pressure source instrument. Some of the more
outstanding features are listed below:
• Using a manually adjustable regulator, the maximum system input pressure is adjusted to any desired value
higher (typically 20 to 50%) than the full scale range of the device being tested. By virtue of this technique,
the unit under test is fully protected from being inadvertently over-pressurized.
• Portable: These compact, self-contained systems are easily carried and operated by only one person. Total
weight is approximately 25 pounds.
• Pressure Source: An internal supply cylinder with a volume of 15.0 std. cu. ft. of N2 provides up to 3000
PSIG of pressure for calibration and test. A check valve quick disconnect fitting provides re-charging
capability.
• Simple Operation: All controls, gages and pressure ports are accessible from the front panel.
Accompanying operator's manual provides clear, concise instructions for system operation.
• Safe, Clean Operation: All pressure components are made of brass, aluminum or stainless steel and
proof-tested to at least 150% of maximum operating pressure. In addition, the system contains a
high-pressure burst disk to protect both the operator and system components from harm in the event of
inadvertent over-pressurization.
Introduction
1
The heart of the Source 3000 are the two micro-metering valves and the vernier provided for control of the
internal nitrogen source. Overpressure protection is provided by a fully adjustable pressure regulator which is
manually set for each new device being tested. The Source 3000 is designed for compatibility with all major
manufacturer’s electronic calibration equipment.
The following schematic provides an overview of the Source 3000’s function.

Operation
Pressure Cylinder Filling
To initially fill or refill the internal pressure cylinder (3000 PSI max.) of the Source 3000, see Figure 2-1 below
and proceed as described below.
NOTE: The pressure cylinder used as the filling source must be regulated to provide a maximum output of 3049 PSIG.
1. Rotate the PRESSURE LIMIT CONTROL (1) counter-clockwise until it stops. Close the COARSE
ADJUSTMENT valve (2) by rotating clockwise until it stops.
2. Connect the fill hose (3), supplied by customer, to a clean regulated nitrogen source (5).
3. Connect the other end of the fill hose (3) supplied by customer, to the male fill port fitting (4). Use
supplied AN to 1/8 male NPT adapter fitting, (PNs 59839 and 59708) and cheat seal pad (PN 54854)
between fill hose & fill port.
4. Slowly open the valve on the nitrogen source and allow the gas to flow into the pressure cylinder. NOTE:
Inlet check valve could be damaged if pressure is released too fast. The SUPPLY PRESSURE gage (6)
indicates the amount of pressure within the internal cylinder. Use the following procedure for filling the
cylinder:
a) Fill cylinder to 1000 PSI at a rate of charge equal to a minimum of two minutes, then wait five minutes
for system to stabilize.
b) Fill cylinder from 1000 PSI to 2000 PSI at a rate of charge equal to a minimum of two minutes, then
wait five minutes for system to stabilize.
c) Fill cylinder from 2000 PSI to 3000 PSI at a rate of charge equal to a minimum of two minutes. Wait
five minutes for system to stabilize before using.

Initial Setup
To prepare for actual calibration usage, see Figure 2-2 below and proceed as follows:
1. Check that the COARSE ADJUSTMENT valve (1) is closed (rotate clockwise until it stops) and that the
vent valve (2) is open (two turns counter-clockwise from its stop).
2. Using the PRESSURE LIMIT CONTROL regulator (5), adjust the maximum system input pressure, as read
by the pressure limit monitor (4), to any desired value higher (typically 20–50% higher) than the
full-scale range of the device under test. Using this technique, the device under test is fully protected
from being accidentally over-pressurized.
3. Connect the male quick disconnect end of the port hose supplied by customer to one of the port (6)
fittings. Use supplied 1/4 female NPT quick disconnect fitting, (PN 55394) between port hose and Port 1
or Port 2.
4. Connect the other end of the port hose to the input port of the electronic standard, using adapters if
required. Tighten all connections.
5. Connect the end of the test hose supplied by customer to the electronic standard output port and the other
end to the unit under test. Tighten all connections properly. NOTE: If using a tee type port/test hose
connection, the electronic standard is connected between the port and unit under test.

Pressure Measurement Sequence
1. To apply pressure, close the VENT valve (2) approximately two turns until it stops, then open the
COARSE ADJUSTMENT valve (1) approximately 1/2 turn counter-clockwise until the display begins to
move. The pressure may change rapidly until reaching approximately 90% of the desired final value.
2. Use either the COARSE ADJUSTMENT or VENT valve to obtain a specific pressure reading. Both provide
precise control. As the pressure approaches the desired value, the valve being used for control should be
rotated slowly clockwise to its closed position. With a little experience, pressure values very close to the
desired final value may be quickly achieved.
3. To obtain exact pressure readings, slowly rotate the VERNIER control (3) knob in the direction required
(clockwise to increase pressure) as indicated by the electronic standard display.
