2 Important Notices on Safety
2-2. Warning cases
2-2. Warning cases
WARNING
Sampling point pressure
• The gas monitor is designed to draw gases around it under the atmospheric pressure. If
excessive pressure is applied to the gas inlet and outlet (GAS IN, GAS OUT) of the gas monitor,
detected gases may be leaked from its inside, thus leading to dangers. Be sure that excessive
pressure is not applied to the gas monitor while used.
• Do not connect the gas sampling hose directly to a location with a pressure higher than the
atmospheric pressure. The internal piping system may be damaged.
Handling of sensor
Do not disassemble the electrochemical type sensor because it contains electrolyte. Electrolyte may
cause severe skin burns if it contacts skin, while it may cause blindness if it contacts eyes.
If electrolyte is adhered on your clothes, that part on your clothes is discolored or its material is
decomposed. If contact occurs, rinse the area immediately with a large quantity of water.
Fresh air adjustment in atmosphere
When the fresh air adjustment is performed in the atmosphere, check the atmosphere for freshness
before beginning the adjustment. If other gases exist, the adjustment cannot be performed properly,
thus leading to dangers when the gas leaks.
Response to gas alarm
Issuance of a gas alarm indicates that there are extreme dangers. Take proper actions based on
your judgment.
Battery level check
• Before use, check that there remains sufficient battery power. When the gas monitor is used for
the first time or is not used for a long period, the batteries may be exhausted. Either fully charge
the batteries or replace them with new ones before use.
• If a low battery voltage alarm occurs, gas detection cannot be conducted. If the alarm occurs
during use, turn off the power and promptly charge the batteries in a non-hazardous area.
Others
• Do not throw the gas monitor into fire.
• Do not wash the gas monitor in a washing machine or ultrasonic cleaner.
• Do not block the buzzer sound opening. No alarm sound can be heard.
• Do not remove the battery unit while the power is ON.

2 Important Notices on Safety
2-3. Precautions
2-3. Precautions
CAUTION
Do not use the gas monitor where it is exposed to oil, chemicals, etc. Do not submerge the gas
monitor under water on purpose.
• Do not use in a place where the gas monitor is exposed to liquids such as oil and chemicals.
• The gas monitor, being compliant to IP67, is not water-pressure-resistant. Do not use the gas
monitor where a high water pressure is applied to it (under a faucet, shower, etc.) or submerge it
under water for a long time. The gas monitor is water-proof only in fresh water and running
water, and not in hot water, salt water, detergent, chemicals, human sweat, etc.
• The gas inlet and outlet are not water-proof. Be careful not to let water such as rainwater get into
these parts. Because this may cause trouble and gas cannot be detected.
• Do not place the gas monitor where water or dirt gets accumulated. The gas monitor placed at such
a location may malfunction due to water or dirt that gets into the buzzer opening, gas inlet, etc.
• Note that drawing in dirty water, dust, metallic powder, etc. will significantly deteriorate the sensor
sensitivities. Be careful when the gas monitor is used in an environment where these elements exist.
Do not use the gas monitor in a place where the temperature drops below -10ºC or rises over 40ºC.
• The operating temperature of the gas monitor is -10 to 40ºC. Do not use the gas monitor at higher
temperatures, humidities, and pressures or at lower temperatures than the operating range.
• Avoid long-term use of the gas monitor in a place where it is exposed to direct sunlight.
• Do not store the gas monitor in a sun-heated car.
Observe the operating restrictions to prevent condensation inside the gas monitor or sampling probe.
Condensation formed inside the gas monitor or sampling probe causes clogging or gas adsorption,
which may disturb accurate gas detection. Thus, condensation must be avoided. In addition to the
operating environment, carefully monitor the temperature/humidity of the sampling point to prevent
condensation inside the gas monitor or sampling probe. Please observe the operating restrictions.
Do not use a transceiver near the gas monitor.
• Radio wave from a transceiver near the gas monitor may disturb readings. If a transceiver is
used, it must be used in a place where it disturbs nothing.
• Do not use the gas monitor near a device that emits strong electromagnetic waves
(high-frequency or high-voltage devices).
Verify that the pump driving indicator is rotating before using the gas monitor.
If the pump driving indicator is not rotating, gas detection cannot be performed properly. Check
whether the flow rate is lost.
Do not forget to perform a regular maintenance.
Since this is a safety unit, a regular maintenance must be performed to ensure safety. Continuing to
use the gas monitor without performing a maintenance will compromise the sensitivity of the sensor,
thus resulting in inaccurate gas detection.
Direct the LCD display upward.
Use the gas monitor with the LCD display facing upward. The gas monitor, when used with the LCD
display in a tilted or flat status, may not display correct values. Likewise, store the gas monitor with
the LCD display facing upward.
Others
• Pressing buttons unnecessarily may change the settings, preventing alarms from activating
correctly. Operate the gas monitor using only the procedures described in this operating manual.
• Do not drop or give shock to the gas monitor. The water-proof and explosion-proof properties
and accuracy may be deteriorated.
• Do not use the gas monitor while charging it.

CAUTION
After start-up, perform air calibration before performing gas detection (air calibration mode).
NOTE
• A sensor abnormality alarm is issued before the detection mode is entered if there is any abnormality
in the sensor. Promptly contact RIKEN KEIKI. Gases cannot be detected if there is any abnormality in
the sensor.
• If there is an abnormality in the built-in clock, a fault alarm FAIL CLOCK may be issued. Press the
RESET button. The fault alarm is temporarily reset, and measurement is started with incorrect clock
time.
• When the power is turned on in a low-temperature environment, the pump may produce bigger

In the detection mode, put the sampling probe close to the detection area and take the reading on the
display.
Display example
<- Display example
Gas concentration: 0.0 ppm
Battery level:
Sufficient
DANGER
• Toxic or other gases may blow out from the gas exhausting outlet. Never inhale the air or gases.
WARNING
• The gas monitor is designed to draw gases around it under the atmospheric pressure. If
excessive pressure is applied to the gas inlet and outlet (GAS IN, GAS OUT) of the gas monitor,
detected gases may be leaked from its inside, thus leading to dangers. Be sure that excessive
pressure is not applied to the gas monitor while used.
• Do not connect the sampling hose directly to a location with a pressure higher than the
atmospheric pressure. The internal piping system may be damaged.
• When the fresh air adjustment is performed in the atmosphere, check the atmosphere for
freshness before beginning the adjustment. If other gases exist, the adjustment cannot be
performed properly, thus leading to dangers when the gas leaks.
• Issuance of a gas alarm indicates that there are extreme dangers. Take proper actions based on
your judgment.
• Before use, check that there remains sufficient battery power. When the gas monitor is used for
the first time or is not used for a long period, the batteries may be exhausted. Either replace the
batteries with new ones or fully charge them before use.
• If a low battery alarm occurs, gas detection cannot be conducted. If the alarm occurs during use,
turn off the power and promptly replace the batteries with new ones or charge them in a
non-hazardous area.
• Do not block the buzzer sound opening. No alarm sound can be heard.

4 How to Use
4-5. How to detect
CAUTION
• Before performing gas detection, attach the sampling probe provided with the gas monitor to
prevent disturbances by air dust.
• Use the gas monitor with the LCD display facing upward. The gas monitor, when used with the
LCD display in a tilted or flat status, may not display correct values.
• If a high-concentration gas or highly adsorptive gas, such as HCI and NH3, is drawn, some gas
may remain in the hose due to adsorption in the sampling probe or others. After drawing a
high-concentration gas or highly adsorptive gas, clean the gas monitor to remove the adsorbed
gas (draw fresh air and check that the reading becomes zero).
Performing fresh air adjustment before cleaning it completely will result in inaccurate adjustment,
giving adverse influence on measurement.
NOTE
• In a low-temperature environment, the operating time is shortened due to the battery performance
property.
• At a low temperature, the response of the LCD display may get slow down.

Clean the gas monitor if it becomes extremely dirty. The gas monitor must be turned off while cleaning it. Use
a waste cloth to remove dust. Do not use water or organic solvent for cleaning because they may cause
malfunctions.
Because an extremely large amount of dust inside the sampling probe may disturb the gas detection, it must
be cleaned with dry AIR, etc.
CAUTION
When cleaning the gas monitor, do not splash water over it or use organic solvents such as alcohol
and benzene on it. The surface of the gas monitor may be discolored or damaged.
NOTE
When the gas monitor gets wet, water may remain in the buzzer sound opening or clearances. Drain
water as follows:
(1) Wipe away moisture on the gas monitor thoroughly using a dry towel, cloth, etc.
(2) While holding the gas monitor firmly, shake it about ten times with the buzzer sound opening facing

Storage and Disposal
7-1. Procedures to store the gas monitor or leave it for
a long time
The gas monitor must be stored under the following environmental conditions.
• In a dark place under the normal temperature and humidity away from direct sunlight
• In a place where gases, solvents or vapors are not present
Store the gas monitor in a shipping carton, if any, in which the product was delivered.
Store the gas monitor away from dust, etc. if the shipping carton is not available.
Make sure to store the gas monitor with the display facing upward.
CAUTION
• If the gas monitor is not used for a long time, turn on the power at least once every six months
and check that the pump draws in air (about three minutes). The gas monitor, when not activated
for a long time, may cease to work because of hardening of the grease in the pump motor.
• Store the gas monitor with dry batteries attached. While the power of the gas monitor is OFF, the
sensor is energized at all times. If dry batteries are removed, the sensor may not function at the
next use of the gas monitor. Therefore, it is necessary to store the gas monitor with the batteries
in it.
NOTE
• Check that the battery level is sufficient once every six months. If a low battery voltage alarm is
triggered while checking, replace the dry batteries with new ones (or charge the Li-ion battery unit).
Because the sensor is energized at all times even when the power is OFF, it is necessary to replace
the batteries (or charge the Li-ion battery unit).
If the gas monitor is used with low-level batteries, battery leaks resulting from over discharging may
occur.
• If the gas monitor with a Li-ion battery unit is not used for a long time, it is recommended to store it
after discharging the batteries until the battery level icon shows one battery mark or so. If the gas
monitor is stored with the batteries fully charged, the batteries get deteriorated more quickly and may
have shorter life.

When you use a stopped/stored gas monitor again, do not forget to perform a gas calibration. For
information on readjustment including gas calibration, please contact RIKEN KEIKI.
7-3. Disposal of products
When the gas monitor is disposed of, it must be treated properly as an industrial waste in accordance with
the local regulations.
WARNING
• Do not disassemble the electrochemical type sensor because it contains electrolyte. Electrolyte
may cause severe skin burns if it contacts skin, while it may cause blindness if it contacts eyes.

Slow leak
A gas alarm is
triggered despite
of no gas leak and
no other
abnormalities at
the detection
point.
Slow response
Span adjustment
impossible
Environmental changes
Presence of
interference gas
Disturbance by noise
Clogged dust filter
Bended or clogged
suction tube or exhaust
tube
Condensation is formed
inside the suction tube.

concentration
Deteriorated sensor
sensitivity
Actions
Perform the zero adjustment (fresh air adjustment).
Disturbances by interference gases cannot be eliminated
completely. For information on actions, such as removal
filter, please contact RIKEN KEIKI.
A very small amount of the gas to be detected may be
leaking (slow leak). Because ignoring it may cause
dangers, take a remedial measure, i.e., taking actions the
same as those for the gas alarm.
Perform the zero adjustment (fresh air adjustment).
Disturbances by interference gases cannot be eliminated
completely. For information on actions, such as removal
filter, please contact RIKEN KEIKI.
Turn off and restart the gas monitor.
If such a symptom is observed frequently, take
appropriate measures to eliminate the noise.
Replace the dust filter.
