O2
Do not use the supply circuit breaker to control
operation of FLO-SAFE. Current draw is negligible
and a global reset (Section 8.3) must be performed
each time power is turned off (or interrupted).
O2
It is a good practice to note the pressure readings
of both gauges at the Manifold after shutdown and
just before startup. If there is more than 5 psi
change in pressure, your system is leaking
excessively. Call your Matrx by Midmark dealer for
Service.

FLO-SAFE provides: status information; audible
and visual alarms when gas pressure is high or
low; warnings when there is no reserve, and a
manual override to allow gas delivery during power
outages. These functions are illustrated from a
user’s prospective on the next page.

DOCTOR’S OPERATING SUMMARY
Electrical power failure. To
continue operation, set the
Manifold selector knob so that
the pointer of the knob aligns
withe the triangular blue mark at

Alarm beeps continuously indicates high or low gas
pressure. When nitrous oxide or oxygen pressure at the
Manifold exceeds 65 psi or drops below 40 psi, the Alarm
Panel responds with an audible, repeating “beep” and
lights the appropriate HIGH or LOW indicator. Correcting
the problem causes the indicator to return to normal and
shuts off the beeper. To silence the beeper during
servicing, press the icon shown.

psi). Check the SYSTEM STATUS indicator. When an
abnormal situation arises, the SYSTEM STATUS
indicator and one or more of the letters A, B, or C will
light. See Section 8, Troubleshooting, for a description
of each of the status condition codes e.g., A, AB, BC.
If calling for service, give your Matrx dealer (listed on
cover), the status code indicated.

SAFETY WARNINGS AND IMPORTANT INFORMATION
WARNING: READ AND UNDERSTAND THE FOLLOWING SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO INSTALL OR OPERATE THE FLO-SAFE MANIFOLD AND
ALARM SYSTEM. IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND THESE INSTRUCTIONS, CONTACT
YOUR LOCAL MATRX BY MIDMARK DEALER.
INSTALLATION AND TESTING SAFETY
Installation and testing shall be done in accordance with NFPA or CSA standards. It is the responsibility of
the installer to ensure compliancy with the above standards as well as any local building or fire code.
4.
O
INSPECT THE GAS CYLINDER VALVE FOR
LEAKS BEFORE PUTTING IT INTO SERVICE. If
a leak is found around the cylinder valve stem,
close the valve, place the cylinder outdoors in a
safe area, and inform your medical gas supplier
immediately.
ce
en
DO NOT ALLOW OXYGEN OR NITROUS
OXIDE EQUIPMENT TO BECOME EXPOSED
TO FIRE, SPARKS, OR OTHER POSSIBLE
SOURCES OF IGNITION.
DO NOT USE THE REGULATOR IF OIL OR
GREASE IS PRESENT, OR IF DAMAGE IS
EVIDENT.
er
3.
7.
DO NOT SUBMERGE THE REGULATOR IN
WATER. Wipe Dusty parts with a damp cloth.
To disinfect the regulator, use isopropyl alcohol.
5.
NEVER ALTER THE REGULATOR IN ANY WAY.
6.
IF YOU HEAR A LOUD “HISSING” OR
“POPPING” SOUND COMING FROM THE
REGULATOR, CLOSE THE CYLINDER VALVE
OR GAS INLET AND CONTACT YOUR MATRX
BY MIDMARK DEALER. This regulator is
equipped with a relief valve; these sounds
indicate a possible malfunction and hazardous
condition.
8.
DO NOT STORE CYLINDERS NEAR SOURCES
OF HEAT OR FLAME. Never allow the temperature
of the cylinder contents to exceed 125° F.
9.
NO SMOKING. Remove matches, cigarettes,
lighters, and lighter fluids from the area.

SECURED AREA.
ef
2.
DO NOT USE OIL, GREASE, OR ANY OTHER
PETROLEUM-BASED OR FLAMMABLE
SUBSTANCE ON OR AROUND OXYGEN
EQUIPMENT. Oil and grease become highly
combustible in the presence of oxygen. Oxygen
is not flammable by itself; however, all materials
which burin in air will burn much more rapidly in
the presence of oxygen.
12. NEVER LEAVE GAS CYLINDER VALVES OPEN
OVERNIGHT. Turn all cylinder valves clockwise at
the end of each day to shut off the gas supply.

ABOUT FLO-SAFE
SECTION 1.0
1.1 DESCRIPTION
The Matrx FLO-SAFE Manifold and Alarm System
provides safe delivery of nitrous oxide (N20) and Oxygen
(O2) from source tanks to the lines supplying patient
areas. The FLO-SAFE Manifold is designed for systems
using less than 3000 cubic feet (85 cu. m.) of gas.
2. The Control Module houses the control electronics
and power supply. It directs all major functions of
the system, including tank switchover, pressure
alarms and system status.
3. The Alarm Panel provides control and system status
monitoring, with audio and visual alarms to warn of
high and low gas pressures. Model FS-1 has a
security function that prevents unauthorized
operation of the system. The Alarm Panel can be
wall-mounted or optionally desk-mounted
(requires kit PN 91307605).
1.2 MODELS AND FEATURES
The FLO-SAFE Manifold System is available in two
models:
1. FS-1 and CFS-1with security
2. FS-2 and CFS-2 without security
4. The Zone Valve provids emergency shutoff of
gases in the patient area. Surface and flushmounted versions are available. Both are supplied
with high/low pressure switch assemblies and a
single-handle shutoff.
1.3 SYSTEM COMPONENTS (Figure 1)
The system consists of the FLO-SAFE Manifold, Alarm
Panel, Control Module, Service Isolation Valve, Zone
Valve Shutoff box and four Cylinder Regulators.
5. The Service Isolation Valve provides a means to
disconnect the supply gas from the distribution
system. A single actuator controls both O2 and N2O
valves. Includes a security device to allow locking
the valve open and closed.
nl
y
All models provide automatic switchover to the reserve
tank, audio/visual alarms, and a Proportional Fail-Safe
feature that stops nitrous oxide flow in the event oxygen
pressure drops so that nitrous oxide cannot be
administered without oxygen.
O
1. The wall-mounted Manifold connects to the gas
supply (nitrous oxide and oxygen). It contains
pressure sensors, pressure relief devices, pressure
gauges, a Proportional Fail-Safe system, an
automatic switchover mechanism and Control
Module.

1. Test Set-Up. With the Zone Valve open and the
Manifold System turned on at the Alarm Panel (see
Section 5.4), slowly open all four cylinders, pressurizing
the system to the normal operating pressure. After
about 10 seconds, pull the Zone Valve handle to close
its two valves, isolating the Zone Valve pressure
switches from the Manifold pressure switches.
to 65 psi. Slowly increase pressure until the HIGH
pressure visual (4, Figure 11) and audio alarms,
activate. The Zone Valve gauge pressure should be
approximately 65 psi. Silence the audio alarm (see
section 6.4). Repeat for both gases. Slowly relieve
pressure in both lines.
4.6 FINAL INSTALLATION
1. Remove and discard the protective cover only
after the completion of wall plastering, painting,
tiling, and trim work. Be careful removing the
protective cover so that the plaster does not chip
away from the edge of the box.
2. Low Pressure Alarm Test. To an outlet station,
connect a stem-indexed hose with a shutoff valve.
Slowly bleed down the pressure at the outlet station
until the LOW pressure visual (4, Figure 11) and
audio alarms activate. The Zone Valve gauge
pressure should be approximately 40 psi. Silence the

7.2 ADJUSTING CYLINDER REGULATORS (Fig. 17)
FLO-SAFE Manifold Systems are supplied standard with
dual-stage O2 and single-stage N2O cylinder pressure
regulators. This mix of dual and single stage regulators
provides optimum pressure adjustment accuracy at
minimum cost. Matrx by Midmark cylinder regulators
are shipped factory adjusted and should not need
adjustment. However, if adjustment should be
necessary, follow the procedure below.
NOTE: Do not adjust regulators if oxygen
cylinder pressure is below 200 psi or if
nitrous oxide pressure is below 100 psi.
Replace the cylinder.
1. Press the ON/OFF button at the Alarm Panel to
ensure that the alarm is off.
2. Remove the cover from the Manifold by gently
spreading the sides outward.
1. Turn the system ON at the Alarm Panel.
3. Unplug the power cord from the control module
receptacle.
NOTE: FLO-SAFE is equipped with a dualstage oxygen cylinder regulator to maintain
constant line pressure during high usage
such as oxygen flush. The nitrous oxide
regulator is a single stage because nitrous
oxide is not a ‘flushed’ gas. However, an
optional dual-stage nitrous oxide regulator
is available (Matrx PN 93305356).
nl
y
4. Using a screwdriver, pry out the fuse holder
drawer located in the receptacle.
O
5. Remove the active fuse from the fuse holder
drawer. If the internal wire is broken or melted,
discard the fuse.
2. With no gas flowing in the system, read the Manifold
and Cylinder Regulator gauges. Compare the
readings to Figure 17. If the readings correspond
with those in the figure, do not adjust the
regulator.
ce
6. Replace with the spare fuse stored in the fuse
holder drawer (5x20 mm, 500 milliamp Slo-Blo,
Matrx PN 63882532).
3. If adjustment is required, remove the acorn nut from
the cylinder regulator (See figure 16). Refer to the
tank SELECTED icons on the Manifold Control
Module (3 & 7, Figure 13) to make sure you are
adjusting the correct regulator. Remember,
adjustment is not needed if the regulator pointer is
anywhere within the green zone of the regulator.
en
7. Replace the fuse holder drawer, power cord,
and Manifold cover.

CALIBRATION AND TROUBLESHOOTING
SECTION 8.0
This section gives the manifold calibration procedure,
provides symptom/problem/solution tables; details how
to perform a global reset, and offers troubleshooting tips.
3. After the global reset, the Manifold selector knob
will be positioned at four o’clock. Both the N2O
and O2 TANK STATUS icons should indicate that
the right hand tanks are now in use. This is true
providing that both right-hand tanks have gas in
them.
8.1 FLO-SAFE MANIFOLD CALIBRATION
This section provides the calibration procedure that
must be performed at initial start-up and after
correction of any lockup condition, or any problem
involving the regulators, gauges or pressure switches.
Always calibrate FLO-SAFE before calling Matrx by
Midmark for service.
4. Verify that Manifold pressure of each gas is set
according to tank volume as shown in Figure 17.
If necessary, adjust the oxygen regulator first and
then the nitrous oxide regulator.
NOTE: To calibrate the FLO-SAFE Manifold,
all four tank cylinders must have at least
200 psi pressure.
5. Look at the O2 side first. If the pressure is too
low, adjust the regulator clockwise. If too high,
adjust the regulator counterclockwise ½ turn
and then bleed the system from an outlet station.

8.4 TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS
1. Pressure Indicators
When troubleshooting false alarms, remember the
following about the pressure switch circuits:
•
If the Manifold pressure gauges indicate actual
line pressure is high or low, an illuminated HIGH
or LOW Alarm Panel indicator is valid.
•
The Alarm displays only one pressure alarm per
gas at a time, with LOW taking priority.
•
To view the pressure indicators on the Control
Module, the Manifold cover must be removed.
•
A HIGH indicator illuminated at the Control Module
indicates a break in the pressure switch circuit,
including both the Manifold and Zone Valve.
•
A LOW indication at the Control Module indicates
a break in the pressure switch circuit of the
Manifold only.
•
A LOW indicator illuminated at the Alarm only
indicates a break in the low pressure switch
circuit of the Zone Valve.
•
The terminal strip marked Zone Valve has four
circuits; wire colors are the same for each of the
circuit. To test a circuit, place a piece of wire or
paper clip across two like-colored terminals,
shorting or bypassing that circuit. Any alarm initiated
by the bypass circuit would no longer be illuminated,
thus indicating the fault is in that circuit. This jumper
technique can also be used at a pressure switch or
the pressure switch assemblies in the Zone Valve.
2. Position Switches and Selected Indicators
When troubleshooting positioning problems SYSTEM
STATUS C, AC, BC, and Manual Override, it is
important to remember:
•
23
The selected indicators do not indicate which
position switches are activated when the system
is operating automatically.
