Introduction
1.1 The SMC Model 55 is a portable oxygen efficiency monitor for
personnel in confined work places. It is self-contained, light
weight and battery operated. It does not require any adjustments
by the user other than routine calibrations. The monitor reads
true percent oxygen in the presence of any diluents including
humidity and will not be affected appreciably by barometric
pressure changes caused by elevation or weather changes.

Mechanical Description
3.1 The Model 55 is housed in a rugged, high impact enclosre. The
sliding ON/OFF power switch is located on the left side, the
calibration potentiometer is accessible on the right side and the
digital display is on the front surface. The top of the monitor
contains the sensor opening, jacks for earphone and remote
sensor, the alarm LED and audible alarms. See Figure 1.
3.2 Located on the back surface of the monitor are a belt clip and the
battery cover.

Alarms
4.1 LOW OXYGEN CONDITION: When the percent oxygen falls
below 19.5 % (factory set) the digital display will be augmented
by an audible alarm when using either internal or external
sensor. The red LED will also turn on to provide visual indication.
If an earphone is in use the alarm will only sound through the
earphone.
4.2 LOW BATTERY VOLTAGE: When the battery voltage falls below
3.6 volts, the warning “BAT” will display in the upper left corner.
4.3 LOW SENSOR OUTPUT: Sensor failure will be indicated by
abnormally low, unadjustable, reading on the LCD display.

Operation
5.1 Turn the ON/OFF switch to “ON” position.
5.2 Display reads percent oxygen.
5.3 If the alarm sounds the percentage oxygen has dropped below
the present alarm lever (factory set to 19.5%). The alarm will turn
off automatically when the oxygen concentration rises above the
alarm level.
5.4 If the word “BAT” is indicated on the display the battery must be
replaced.
5.5 If the reading is abnormally low in an environment which is
known to have sufficient oxygen, and the unit cannot be
calibrated, the sensor life is complete and the sensor must be
replaced.

Calibration
NOTE: This instruction assumes that only the internal sensor is in use
(external probe disconnected). See option instructions for calibration of
external probe.
6.1 Turn the monitor “ON” and place it in an environment containing
20.9% oxygen and 79.1% nitrogen. This can be supplied from a
calibration cylinder or can be open air if it is known to be clean.
6.2 Adjust the monitor to read 20.9% by turning the set screw which
is located on the right side of the monitor behind a black
grommet. Use a small jewels screwdriver to make the
adjustment.

Sensor Replacement
7.1 Sensors for the Model 55 are provided in a sealed bag to prevent
depletion of the electrolyte prior to required use. Sensor
depletion begins when the bad seal is broken.
7.2 Remove the four screws from the rear of the monitor and open
the case.
7.3 Remove the sensor from the clamp in the back panel and unplug
it from the printed circuit board.
7.4 Insert the new sensor into the clamp. The sensor should be
oriented as indicated in Figure 2 and the tip of the sensor must
rest inside the hole in the center. Plug the connector into the
printed circuit board.
7.5 Replace the back cover and install the four screws. Turn the
monitor “ON”.

7.6 Allow 1 hour of stabilization.
7.7 In a clean air environment, turn the calibration adjustment to
increase the reading to it’s maximum value.
a.
If the maximum reading exceeds 23% Oxygen, then
the monitor circuit if OK. Calibrate to 20.9% and return
the monitor to normal use.
b.
If the maximum reading is lower than 23%, but higher
than 21.5%, the monitor is safe to use, but the sensor
life may be less than two years. The monitor may be
returned to Sierra Monitor for a NO COST upgrade to
insure full sensor life.
c.
If the maximum reading is less than 21.5% the
monitor is not operating correctly and should be
returned to Sierra Monitor for repair.

8. Battery Replacement
8.1 When the “BAT” indicator is displayed approximately 8 hours of
battery life remain.
8.2 Slide off the battery cover located on the lower rear of the unit.
Remove the battery and disconnect.
8.3 Connect a new battery and carefully install it in the compartment
taking care to stow the wires in a way in which they will not be
crimped or cut by the cover. Place the cover back onto housing
and secure with the four screws.

Remote Sensor Option
9.1 Use the remote sensor option to check the confined environment
before entry.
9.2 Plug the probe into the top of the monitor and loop the cable
securely around the belt clip. When the remote probe is plugged
in the internal sensor is disabled and the display reads the
remote probe concentration.
9.3 The remote probe will require 5-10 minutes to stabilize
depending upon the time since last use.
9.4 Calibrate, if necessary, by following the instructions in Section 6
except that the adjusting screw is located in the back of the
remote sensor head.
