Chapter 2 Installation and Start Up
What’s in the package
Carefully remove all the components from the packing box(s). Check components against the packing list.
Inspect all components for obvious damage and broken/loose parts. Notify the carrier and distributor
immediately if damage is found or parts are missing.
Location of Sensor(s)
There are no absolute rules for determining the quantity and location of gas detection instruments within a
particular facility. Care should be taken to locate the sensors in areas where gas escape may be expected and
where it is desirable to detect the presence of unwanted gas. Use redundancy where enhanced protection or
reliability is desired. Heavy gases such as H2S, CO and SO2 tend to accumulate in low areas. Seek advice from
experts who know the characteristics of the gas being detected, air movement patterns and the facility. Use
common sense and refer to various publications that discuss general guidelines for your industry.
Unpacking
The UNI-TRAN Premium Plus is made up of two primary components (refer to figure 1). The Enclosure and
relay board are a single assembly to which the sensor is wired. The control module (CPU board / display
board) is a separate plug-in assembly. First, remove the sensor from the white shipping container (not
applicable to ST1210) Remove the lower half of the Sensor Housing by unscrewing it counter clockwise. Plug
the sensor into the upper half of the Sensor Housing. Replace the lower Sensor Housing and tighten the
housing.
WARNING:
Do not attempt to unscrew the “knurled” pull knob. Do not separate the CPU board and
Display board.
NOTE:
Since all modern electronic equipment can be damaged by static electricity discharge, it is
important to take precautions. Discharge static electricity from your body by touching a
grounded metal object before handling the module.
Remove the control module from the housing, by grasping the centre “pull” knob and pulling straight away,
then temporarily store the control module in a clean safe place until after the field wiring has been connected
to the terminal strip located on the relay board.

Figure 1 Toxic Detector Layout
Mounting
The housing should be oriented so that the sensor is on the underside of the housing. Water will damage
electronic devices. Seal conduit near housing entries to prevent water damage in the enclosure (refer to figure
2, 3, 4 and 5).

Wiring
(refer to figure 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12)
NOTE:
The wiring procedures in this manual are intended to ensure proper functioning of the device
under normal conditions. However, because of the many variations in wiring codes and
regulations, total compliance to these ordinances cannot be guaranteed. Confirm that all
wiring complies with applicable regulations that relate to the installation of electrical
equipment in a hazardous area. If in doubt, consult a qualified official before wiring the
system.
NOTE
The control module (CPU board and Display Board) with cable should never be totally removed
from the Relay board and housing. If it is removed there are bright red alignment markings on the
cable and on the Relay board for you to use when re-inserting the cable into the Relay Board
connector.
NOTE
Since all modern electronic equipment can be damaged by static electricity discharge it is
important to discharge static electricity from your body by touching a grounded metal object before
handling the module.
Refer to figure 1
The transmitter is made up of two assemblies. The enclosure / relay board are a single assembly to which the
input is wired. The control module (CPU board and Display Board) is a separate assembly. To conduct wiring
unscrew the two retaining screws from the front of the display board . (The control module is attached to the
relay board by a cable. Do not detach the cable during wiring). Detach the module from the housing by
grasping the centre (Pull Here) knob and pull straight away. Gently hang the module from the cable while you
conduct wiring.
The use of shielded cable is highly recommended for signal, input, output and power wires to protect against
interference caused by extraneous electrical 'noise'. Relay outputs do not require shielded cable. In
applications where the wiring cable is installed in conduit, the conduit must not be used for wiring to other
electrical equipment. The maximum distance between the sensor and controller is limited by the resistance of
the connecting wiring, which is a function of the gauge of the wire being used. Refer to the manuals on the
sensors used (and transmitters if used) for maximum wiring distances and wiring instructions (refer to
Appendix B).
NOTE:
The controller contains semiconductor devices that are susceptible to damage by electrostatic
discharge. An electrostatic charge can build up on the skin and discharge when an object is
touched. Therefore, use caution when handling, taking care not to touch the terminals or
electronic components. For more information on proper handling, refer to the Appendix A.
Water-proof and explosion-proof conduit seals are recommended to prevent water accumulation within the
enclosure. Seals should be located as close to the device as possible and not more than 18 inches (46 cm)
away. Explosion-proof installations may require an additional seal where conduit enters a
8
non-hazardous area. Conform to local wiring codes.
When pouring a seal, use a fibre dam to assure proper formation of the seal. Seals should never be poured at
temperatures below freezing.
The jacket and shielding of the cable should be stripped back to permit the seal to form around the individual
wires. This will prevent air, gas and water leakage through the inside of the shield and into the enclosure.
It is recommended that explosion-proof drains and conduit breathers be used. In some applications, alternate
changes in temperature and barometric pressure can cause 'breathing' which allows moist air to enter and
circulate inside the conduit. Joints in the conduit system are seldom tight enough to prevent this 'breathing'.
Refer to applicable wiring codes when installing and wiring. After the field wiring has been carefully
connected, check that the correct wires are connected to the corresponding terminals and that voltage
levels do not exceed the specifications. When the wiring and voltages have been verified remove power
Figure 6 Display Board Layout
from the system. Set the Display board back in place and tighten the two retaining screws.
Sensor Separation
The ST1200, ST1300, ST1400, ST1500 and ST1600 sensors can be installed and wired directly to the UNITRAN Premium Plus housing and terminal board as per the wiring diagrams (see Figure 7and 9 ) or they may
be remotely mounted using a sensor separation kit (JB2-2-ASSY) which is composed of a junction box and
terminal strip (see Figure 8 and 10). The sensor and kit are then connected to the UNI-TRAN Premium Plus.
When sensor separation is required for units using the ST1200, ST1300, ST1400, ST1500 and ST1600 sensor
use a minimum of 18AWG shielded copper instrument wire for separations up to 500 feet. Consult factory if
greater separations are required (see Appendix B Wire Resistance in Ohms).
NOTE:
Use a minimum of 18AWG shielded copper instrument wire for separations up to 500 feet
and 16AWG for separations up to 2000 feet. Consult factory if greater separations are
required.

The ST1210 sensors can be installed and wired directly to the UNI-TRAN Premium Plus housing and
terminal board as per the wiring diagram (see Figure 10 ) or they may be remotely mounted using a
sensor separation kit (JB2-3-ASSY) which is composed of a junction box and terminal strip (see Figure
11). The sensor and kit are then connected to the UNI-TRAN Premium Plus.
When sensor separation is required for units using the ST1210 Hydrogen Sulfide sensor use a minimum of
18AWG shielded copper instrument wire for separations up to 50 feet and 16AWG for separations up to 75
feet. Consult factory if greater separations are required (see Figure 11).
NOTE:
If the 4-20 mA signal is not used, connect a jumper between the 4-20 terminal and the
Common Terminal.

the magnetic reed switch/CAL/RESET button when the desired level is displayed. The selection is
acknowledged by flashing the selected level on the alphanumeric display.
NOTE:
Steps 2 and 3 are repeated for setting the high alarm relay coil and latch status.
Review Settings
Enter the main menu and activate the magnetic reed switch/CAL/RESET button when prompted for “Review
Relay Settings” with “YES?”. The output current will drop to 3.0mA and the relay settings are displayed.
First the fault alarm settings are displayed and these are fixed as normally “Energized” and “Non-Latching”,
followed by the low alarm settings and high alarm settings. This is a read-only mode, thus changes cannot be
made in this mode. The settings for all three alarm relays are displayed twice and then the unit returns to
normal operation.
It is necessary that reliable monitoring and indicating devices or systems be connected to the transmitter.
These devices must be designed to produce clear visual and audible danger signals when high signal levels
occur. Operating personnel must consider the area to be dangerous until a careful survey of the area has been
conducted with a separate and reliable gas indicating device.
Chapter 3 System Calibration
For accurate performance, the UNI-TRAN Premium Plus should be calibrated to the specific gas of
concern. The concentration of gas corresponding to 100% of full scale is converted to a linear 4 to 20mA
output signal which can be powered from the primary DC supply of the instrument.
Calibration is automatic after manual initiation. The operator initiates the calibration sequence by magnetic
activation of the reed switch or by pressing the internal push-button. The UNI-TRAN Premium Plus then
prompts the operator by LED, current loop signals and the alphanumeric display to apply clean air in order to
set zero, followed by 50% of full scale span calibration gas. The entire procedure requires about 5 minutes to
complete.
If the calibration procedure is not performed correctly, the UNI-TRAN Premium Plus automatically returns to
normal operation using its previous calibration data and the calibration failure is indicated by the STATUS
LED and by a scrolling message on the alphanumeric display.
20
Calibration Procedure
NOTE
The Toxic Detector should always be calibrated when first installed in the field and prior to
calibration we recommend that the toxic detector run for at least 4 hours.
It is necessary to calibrate the UNI-TRAN Premium Plus when it is used as a stand-alone device and
connected to other monitoring equipment requiring a precise 4 to 20mA output signal. The following
calibration procedure should be followed to ensure an accurate correlation between the 4 to 20mA output
signal and the sensor input signal.
Calibration Procedure for UNI-TRAN Premium Plus (not applicable for ST1400 O2 sensor, refer to the
end of this procedure)
<
Confirm that the system is powered-up and is not indicating a fault; Status LED is showing a
green blip every 2.0 seconds.
<
Ensure that the sensor is in a clean air environment before beginning the calibration procedure or
we recommended to flow certified ZERO AIR at a rate of 0.5 litres per minute through the
barbed tubing connector on the end of the sensor calibration cup accessory, for one minute to
ensure clean air is present. If the input device is another transmitter be sure that it is calibrated
and that the input to the Toxic Detector is 4.0mA.
<
Enter the main menu by activating the magnetic reed switch
or manual push button switch. When the countdown from 10
to 0 is complete remove the magnet from the magnetic reed
switch or release the CAL/RESET push button. When
prompted with Calibrate sensor “YES?” select the function
by momentarily placing the magnet on the reed switch or
depressing the CAL/RESET button. The selection is
acknowledged with flashing “YES”. The controller starts
calibration. The following Instructions are scrolled across the
display for calibration:
Setting Zero - At this time input should be 4.0mA or ZERO gas
applied to the sensor (3.0mA output current level).
Apply 50 % Span - at this time input should be 12.0mA or apply 50%
span gas at a rate of 0.5 litres per minute to the end of the sensor Figure 15 - Magnetic Reed Switch
calibration cup accessory (3.3mA output current level).
Activation
Setting Span - increasing input signal has been detected (3.3mA output current level).
Remove Gas - at this time input should be reduced to 4.0mA by removing span gas from the sensor (3.6mA
output current level).
Cal Complete - Returns to normal operation (4.0mA output current)
NOTE:
If span setting does not complete successfully within ten minutes of starting the calibration
21
sequence the status LED alternates flashes of RED and GREEN, the analog output changes
back and forth from 3.0 to 3.3mA and Fail Cal. message is displayed on the screen. The unit
remains in this state until acknowledged by a manual Reset. After manual Reset the program
will return to the normal operation mode using previous calibration values. Since the
calibration was unsuccessful another attempt may be made or replace the sensor and re-try
calibration.
Calibration Procedure for UNI-TRAN Premium
Plus ST1400 O2 sensor
Use clean ambient air as calibration gas otherwise, use certified instrument air.
Be sure the UNI-TRAN Premium Plus is powered-up and is not indicating a fault; FAULT/CAL LED is
showing a short green flash every 2.0 seconds (Confidence blip).
Ensure that the sensor is in a clean air environment before beginning the calibration procedure.
To enter the main menu, activate the magnetic reed switch or manual push button switch. When the
countdown from 5 to 0 is complete remove the magnet from the magnetic reed switch or release the
CAL/RESET push button. When prompted with Calibrate sensor “YES?” select the function by momentarily
placing the magnet on the reed switch or depressing the CAL/RESET button. The selection is acknowledged
with flashing “YES”. The controller starts calibration. The following Instructions are scrolled across the
display for calibration:
Apply Calibration Gas - at this time the input should be ambient air (3.0mA output current level).
Processing - The sensor is reading the ambient air level (3.0mA output current level).
20.9 - The sensor is calculating the corrected oxygen level (3.6mA output current level).
Remove Calibration Air - at this time input should be reduced to 3.6 mA by removing span gas from the
sensor if it is attached (3.6mA output current level).
Calibration Complete - Returns to normal operation (17.38 mA output current)
NOTE:
If span setting does not complete successfully within ten minutes of starting the calibration
sequence the status LED alternates flashes of RED and GREEN, the analog output changes
back and forth from 3.0 to 3.3mA and Fail Cal. message is displayed on the screen. The unit
remains in this state until acknowledged by a manual Reset. After manual Reset the program
will return to the normal operation mode using previous calibration values. Since the
calibration was unsuccessful another attempt may be made or replace the sensor and re-try
calibration.
22
Periodic Response Check
We recommend that the toxic gas detector be verified or calibrated every 3 months.
A typical response check involves the application of calibration gas to the sensor, then the observation of the
response LEDs, analog output, display and external monitoring equipment. Be sure to prevent unwanted
response of external monitoring devices and equipment during this procedure. If the UNI-TRAN Premium
Plus response to calibration gas is within its specified accuracy then it is not necessary to perform a
calibration. For example, when 50% of full scale is applied, the response is expected to be between 11.5mA
(47% of full scale) and 12.5mA (53% of full scale). An additional consideration is the accuracy tolerance of
the calibration gas which may be + or - a few percent. If the calibration gas is + or - 10% of full scale then the
reading may be from 10.7mA (42% of full scale) to 13.3mA (58% of full scale).

Relay Settings
This option allows the user to set the alarm levels, coil status and the latch status of the low and high alarm
relays. Fault alarm is fixed as normally Energized and Non-Latching.
Enter the main menu and activate the magnetic reed switch/CAL/RESET button when prompted for
“Set Relay Options” with YES?. The selection is acknowledged with a fashing “YES”. The output current
will drop to 3.0mA and the micro-processor begins the relay setting procedure. Low alarm level, coil
energization and latching options are set for each relay in sequence.
Step 1. The low alarm level is set first. “Set Low” is scrolled across the screen followed by the alarm level
setting which increases by increments of 5 (.5 % for the ST1400 O2 sensor) every 2 seconds. Actuate the
26
magnetic reed switch/CAL/RESET button when the desired level is displayed. The selection is acknowledged
by flashing the selected level on the alphanumeric display. The range for the low alarm is 5 to 100 (17 - 20.5%
for the ST1400 O2 sensor). The value increases in increment of 5 (.5% for the ST1400 O2 sensor) from 5 (17%
for the ST1400 O2 sensor) through to 100 (20.5% for the ST1400 O2 sensor) until an alarm level is selected or
a 5 minute timer expires in which case the unit returns to normal operation.
Step 2. The coil condition is set under NORMAL status (no alarm present). “Coil Status” is scrolled across
the alphanumeric display. The display then alternates between “Energized” and “De-Energized”, each time
prompting the user with “YES?” for selection. Activate the magnetic reed switch/CAL/RESET button when
the desired action is prompted. The selection is acknowledged by flashing “YES”.
Step 3. The relay latching action is set for ALARM status. “Latch Status” is scrolled on the alphanumeric
display. The display then alternates between “Latching” and “Non-Latching”, each time prompting the user
with “YES?” for selection. Activate the magnetic reed switch/CAL/RESET button when the desired action is
prompted. The selection is acknowledged by flashing “YES”. The alphanumeric display alternates between
“Latching” and “Non-Latching” until one is selected or a 5 minute timer expires in which case the unit
returns to normal operation.
Step 4. High relay options are set next. The high alarm relay cannot be set to a value lower than the low
alarm relay setting or higher than 100 (25 for the ST1400 O2 sensor). The high alarm level is displayed in
increments of 5 (.5% for the ST1400 O2 sensor) greater than the low alarm level selected in step 1 (21.5 for the
ST1400 O2 sensor) to a maximum of 100 (25% for the ST1400 O2 sensor). Activate the magnetic reed
switch/CAL/RESET button when the desired level is displayed. The selection is acknowledged by flashing the
selected level on the alphanumeric display.
NOTE:
Steps 2 and 3 are repeated for setting the high alarm relay coil and latch status.
Review Settings
Enter the main menu and activate the magnetic reed switch/CAL/RESET button when prompted for “Review
Relay Settings” with “YES?”. The output current will drop to 3.0mA and the relay settings are displayed.
First the fault alarm settings are displayed and these are fixed as normally “Energized” and “Non-Latching”,
followed by the low alarm settings and high alarm settings. This is a read-only mode, thus changes cannot be
made in this mode. The settings for all three alarm relays are displayed twice and then the unit returns to
normal operation.
It is necessary that reliable monitoring and indicating devices or systems be connected to the transmitter.
These devices must be designed to produce clear visual and audible danger signals when high signal levels
occur. Operating personnel must consider the area to be dangerous until a careful survey of the area has been
conducted with a separate and reliable gas indicating device.
27
Start Delay
When power is first applied to the monitor it will initiate a 90 second warm-up routine. During this time it will
output 3.0mA and the Status LED will flash (slow) red. After warm-up, the monitor will enter the normal
operation (clear) mode, the analog output will change to 4.0mA and the Status LED will blip green.
Sensor Fault
CAUTION
The fault detection circuitry does not monitor the operation of external response equipment or the
external wiring to these devices. It is important that these devices be checked periodically to ensure
they are operational.
The microcontroller-based Toxic Detector features self-testing circuitry that continuously checks for
problems that could prevent proper response. When power is applied, the microcontroller automatically
tests the system to ensure that it is functioning properly. During normal operation, it continuously
monitors the signal from the internal sensor source. In addition, a "watchdog" timer is maintained to
ensure the program is running correctly.
When a system fault is detected, the Status LED flashes (fast) red, the LED alphanumeric display shows
“Sensor Fault” and the fault relay changes state.
Sensor Drift
It is a normal characteristic of gas sensors to exhibit a slow drift from zero. When the amount of drift exceeds
10% since the last calibration, the analog output switches to a value of 2.5mA, the status LED flashes red and
the NEG DRIFT message scrolls on the display until manually reset and the system is re-calibrated. When the
analog output switches to 2.5mA due to drift, the sensor will still respond and transmit reasonable analog
output signals if gas is present.
Normal
With no gas present and no fault detected “Normal” will be illuminated on the alphanumeric LED display to
indicate a clean air status, Status LED will blip green and the analog output is 4.0 mA.
Hardware
Cal/Reset
A pushbutton for programming, zeroing, and resetting the Toxic Detector is provided. Depressing this
push button for less than one second will initiate a basic system reset (clear a latched gas alarm).
Programming the Toxic Detector is accomplished by depressing the push button for greater than one
second.
28
Visual Indicators (Light Emitting Diodes)
The Toxic Detector provides various LEDs for identifying operating conditions. The indicators include a four
digit LED alphanumeric display, a green/red Status LED and a green power LED. These LEDs are visible
through the glass cover of the Uni-Tran transmitter explosion-proof enclosure.
Magnetic Reset Switch
A magnetically activated switch for programming, zeroing, and resetting the Toxic Detector is provided. This
switch is activated by holding the magnet (hanging from the housing) to the side of the housing where
indicated by the label on the transmitter face plate. Activating the magnetic switch for less than one second
will initiate a basic system reset (clear a latched particle alarm). Programming the Toxic Detector is
accomplished by activating the magnetic switch for greater than one second.
Test Jacks
The Toxic Detector is equipped with test jacks to facilitate convenient current loop measurements without
opening the external current loop. To make current loop measurements use the following procedure:
<
Insert your current meter leads into the test jacks
<
Set external devices to bypass if necessary to avoid unwanted alarm response
<
Remove meter leads from test jacks
Outputs
Relays
NOTE:
The fault relay output should not be used to activate an automatic shutdown procedure. The fault
output indicates a potential problem with the Toxic Detector, not an alarm condition.
All relay outputs have SPDT contacts rated 1 amperes at 30 Volts DC or 0.5 amperes at 125 Volts AC. Two
relay outputs are available; one for fault and one for smog alarm. Both of the relays have normally open and
normally closed contacts available at the output terminals.
The fault relay is set for normally energized operation and is non-latching. If a system fault is detected, the
fault relay becomes de-energized. The fault relay is factory set and cannot be altered by you. The smog alarm
relay can be selected for either normally energized or normally de-energized operation and latching/nonlatching.
4-20 mA
A 4-20 mA DC current output is used to transmit the alarm status and fault codes to other devices. This output
can be wired for isolated or non-isolated operation. A 4.0 mA output indicates normal operation; a 20.0 mA
29
output indicates that the smog alarm threshold has been exceeded. Current output of 2.5 mA indicates the
presence of a system fault. Current output of 3.3 mA indicates a build-up of particulate in the sensor chamber.
Sensor Life
Sensor response normally deteriorates slowly over a period of several years, depending on exposure, until
there is no longer sufficient signal. When this condition occurs, calibration will not be possible, the analog
output will lock at 2.5mA, the status LED flashes red, and SENSOR FAIL message scrolls on the display.
Install a new sensor and re-calibrate. The calibration function automatically adjusts span amplifier gain across
a broad range without any need for manual adjustment of potentiometers or jumpers.
CAUTION:
Any type of gas sensor is susceptible to damage when exposed to high levels of gas,
therefore, check the sensor for accurate response and if necessary perform a calibration or
replace the sensor after any high level alarm.
Chapter 5 Troubleshooting
Response to the input should be checked and if necessary calibration should be performed whenever any
of the following occur; excess negative sensor drift is indicated by 2.5mA current output, when the
sensor or transmitter supplying a signal to the UNI-TRAN Premium Plus is added or removed whenever,
the sensor is exposed to high concentrations of gas over full scale
Refer to the calibration procedure in the operation chapter
.

Electrostatic Sensitive Device Handling
Procedure
With the trend toward increasingly widespread use of microprocessors and a wide variety of other
electrostatic sensitive semiconductor devices, the need for careful handling of equipment containing these
devices deserves more attention than it has received in the past.
Electrostatic damage can occur in several ways. The most familiar is by physical contact. Touching an object
causes a discharge of electrostatic energy that has built up on the skin. If the charge is of sufficient magnitude,
a spark will also be visible. This voltage is often more than enough to damage some electronic components.
Some devices can be damaged without any physical contact. Exposure to an electric field can cause damage if
the electric field exceeds the dielectric breakdown voltage of the capacitive elements within the device.
In some cases, permanent damage is instantaneous and an immediate malfunction is realized. Often, however,
the symptoms are not immediately observed. Performance may be marginal or even seemingly normal for an
indefinite period of time, followed by a sudden and mysterious failure.
Damage caused by electrostatic discharge can be virtually eliminated if the equipment is handled only in a
static safeguarded work area and if it is transported in a package or container that will render the necessary
protection against static electricity. Net Safety Monitoring Inc. modules that might be damaged by static
electricity are carefully wrapped in a static protective material before being packaged. Foam packaging blocks
are also treated with an anti-static agent. If it should ever become necessary to return the module, it is highly
recommended that it be carefully packaged in the original carton and static protective wrapping.
Since a static safeguarded work area is usually impractical in most field installations, caution should be
exercised to handle the module by its metal shields, taking care not to touch electronic components or
terminals.
In general, always exercise all of the accepted and proven precautions that are normally observed when
handling electrostatic sensitive devices.
A warning label is placed on the packaging, identifying those units that use electrostatic sensitive
semiconductor devices.
