Display
The ULTIMA X5000 utilizes an Organic LED (OLED) display which is capable of being seen from
a distance of more than 50 ft (15 m). The OLED display provides clear and crisp information in a
variety of languages. The gas reading gauge, which wraps around the live reading area, mimics
the reading as a percent of full scale and is also used as a progress bar during operations which
require a countdown.
Fig. 1
OLED Display
In addition to the OLED display, the ULTIMA X5000 also employs green, yellow and red LEDs on
the side and lower middle of its face. These are used to signal normal operating conditions, fault
conditions and alarm conditions.
The ULTIMA X5000 will go into “Eco-Mode” after 3 minutes of no interaction and if not in an alarm
condition. While in Eco-Mode, the main display will power down and the status LED's will remain
illuminated to determine that the device is not in an alarm condition. The OLED display can be
powered up by touching either of the two EZ touch buttons on the front display.

Dual Sensing
The ULTIMA X5000 is capable of communicating with and displaying information for two sensors
at a time. There are no restrictions to the type of sensors connected to the device.
The ULTIMA X5000 Gas Monitor generates two discrete analog outputs; one for each sensor
connected to the transmitter. The analog output associated with Sensor 1 also has the digital
HART (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer) communication superimposed on the analog
signal. If two sensors are connected, the digital HART communication carries information for both
sensors.
Retrofit Installations
The ULTIMA X5000 has the conduit entries located in the exact same orientation and distance
from the wall and the mounting holes for attaching to a wall are identical to the Ultima X.
XCell Sensors Optimized for Fixed Gas Applications
XCell toxic and combustible cat bead sensors are developed and manufactured by MSA to be the
most shelf-stable and longest lasting sensors available. The XCell non-consuming reaction chemistry is tried-and-true, with over 600,000 used in MSA’s portable gas detectors. Now optimized for
fixed gas applications, the XCell sensor platform is available in the ULTIMA X5000 and provides
multiple benefits, including a standard 3-year warranty on all XCell sensors.
One important optimization for fixed gas was incorporating the GM catalytic bead in the XCell
digital housing. When it comes to catalytic bead technology, bigger is definitely better. The GM
cat bead is the largest in the industry, providing market leading expected life time and stability.
Lead-based Oxygen sensors are notorious for short life times and poor stability. The XCell sensor
does not use lead, but rather a non-consuming reaction chemistry. The XCell Oxygen sensor is
expected to last well over 3-years and can be safely stored on the shelf for at least 1 year without
sensor performance degradation.
TruCal Sensing Technology for CO and H2S Electrochemical Sensors
TruCal saves time and money by doing the hard work for you. Using patented pulse check technology and proprietary Adaptive Environmental Compensation (AEC) algorithms, XCell sensors
with TruCal provide peace of mind for electrochemical sensors like never before.
Automated pulse checks are the muscle behind the TruCal technology. Every six hours, an electrical pulse stimulates the XCell sensor similar to having actual calibration gas applied, providing
a snapshot of the sensor’s sensitivity at the time of the pulse. Using this sensitivity snapshot, the
sensor can diagnose sensor failures like electrode poisoning, electrolyte leaking, or electrical
connectivity issues. The sensitivity snapshots are mapped over time to provide an overall Life &
Health status as either “Good” or “Fair” if the sensor is approaching end of life.
But that’s not all. The brains of the TruCal technology lie within the proprietary Adaptive Environmental Compensation (AEC) algorithms. AEC uses the sensitivity snapshots provided by the
pulse check to adjust sensor output, compensating for environmental impacts on sensor accuracy. If the AEC adjustment is greater than expected based on typical environmental impact variations, the transmitter LED’s will slow flash GREEN, indicating that the sensor should be
calibrated to reset the AEC cycle. The result is a sensor that actively self-monitors for operation
and accuracy, with far fewer manual calibrations.
Actual TruCal sensor performance will depend on the application, background gas exposure, and
environment. To validate XCell sensors with TruCal, it is recommended that users follow their
regular calibration cycle and record the “as found” and “as left” values. This data can be used to
extend the time between calibrations depending on the required specification of the application.

SafeSwap
The ULTIMA X5000 comes with patented SafeSwap technology, which allows users to change or
replace XCell sensors without needing to power down the instrument. For added convenience, the
ULTIMA X5000 comes with Swap Delay enabled by default; a feature that gives users a 2 minute
window to change sensors without triggering a fault condition. For more information on SafeSwap
and Swap Delay, see section 6.
2.9 Housing
The ULTIMA X5000 comes in 316 Stainless Steel for the highest corrosion resistance. Both ¾”
NPT and M25 conduit entries are available. To attach a sensor to an M25 housing, an M25
adapter is required and will be included with the shipment. An integral surface mount bracket can
be used to mount directly into the wall surface or used with a U-Bolt for mounting to a 2” pipe.
Custom tags are available and easily attach to an integral ring.

When installing the XIR PLUS sensor, under no circumstances should a pry-bar be applied to the
two legs that support the unit's reflectors during installation or removal of the sensor. Applying
force to the legs can permanently damage the XIR PLUS sensor.
3.2
Reviewing Shipment and Identifying Product Model
To determine your sensor type and options, check the shipping carton.
US
The device is not shipped with the sensors attached to the housing. The XIR PLUS is a one piece
sensor, but all other sensors are comprised of two parts; the Sensor Body Assembly and the XCell
Sensor. Check the sensor details before attaching to the device housing to ensure that the correct
sensor type is being installed. The sensor details are listed on the inside of the XCell Sensor.
Unscrew the XCell Sensor from the Sensor Body Assembly and check the label on the inside for
gas type, range, replacement ATO configuration, serial number, and firmware revision number.

Product Installation Check List
Before Installation
• Review national electrical codes
• Review local procedural and building codes
• Determine optimum transmitter placement
• Determine wire requirements
• Determine mounting hardware requirements
Mounting
• Attach appropriate sensor to housing or junction box
• Mount transmitter or junction box using appropriate mounting hardware
• Confirm free air flow around the sensor
3.4 Mounting
3.4.1 Sensor Mounting Location
The best location for the transmitter and the sensor may not be the same location. Sensors should
be placed in a location where a gas leak is most likely to be detected. When the best sensor placement would not allow the transmitter display to be easily viewed or accessed, a remote junction
box can be used to mount the sensor remotely from the transmitter, allowing both to be installed
in the optimum location.
Two main factors should be considered when choosing a sensor location. The first is the density
of the target gas relative to the air. Gases, such as propane, that are heavier than air should be
placed near ground level while gases that are lighter than air should be placed above potential
leak sources.
Optimum sensor placement will depend on the surrounding processing equipment, such as pipes,
valves, or turbines. MSA offers a gas and flame mapping service that systematically evaluates
potential sources of leaks and recommends detector quantity and placement to create the most
effective detection system.
3.4.2 Transmitter Mounting Location
The transmitter display should be mounted so that the screen is visible and easily accessed after
installation. The electronics assembly inside the metal enclosure can be repositioned in any of the
four self-aligning interior holes to ensure the display is properly oriented and to provide maximum
flexibility for using conduit entries.
US

13
Installation
3.4.3 Sensor Orientation
Sensor orientation will depend on the sensor type. If mounting an ULTIMA XIR PLUS sensor,
whether locally on the transmitter or via remote junction box, the sensor should be mounted horizontally. If the ULTIMA XIR PLUS sensor is not mounted horizontally, the sensor will be prone to
more frequent beam blocking issues due to accumulated dust and condensation on the surface
of the ULTIMA XIR PLUS sensor. Fig. 5 shows the correct and incorrect mounting orientations for
the ULTIMA XIR PLUS.
Fig. 4
Correct and Incorrect Mounting Orientations for ULTIMA XIR PLUS Sensor
All other sensors including electrochemical, combustible catalytic bead, and oxygen sensors
should be mounted vertically, with the gas inlet pointed downward. If the sensor is not mounted
with the gas inlet facing down, it is more likely to become clogged with particulate matter or liquids.
Fig. 5 shows the correct and incorrect mounting orientation for XCell sensors.

3.4.4 Connecting Sensor to Transmitter Housing or Remote Junction Box
Sensors are not shipped attached to the main enclosure or junction box. All sensor modules interface with the transmitter via a digital four-terminal connection. Up to two sensors can be
connected to a single transmitter, with each sensor getting a dedicated analog (4-20 mA) output.
Consider the sensor dimensions when choosing a mounting location for the transmitter or junction
box.
To connect the sensor:
(1)
Turn the transmitter or junction box lid counterclockwise to remove
(2)
Pull on the metal bail to remove the board stack and expose wiring connections.
(3)
Route the cable from the sensor through a conduit entry hole in the enclosure so that the
sensor is oriented in the correct position (see section 3.4.3 for details).
(Repeat to attach a second sensor to the ULTIMA X5000 transmitter).
(4)
Connect the sensor to the "Sensor 1" position on the electronics assembly.
a) If using a second sensor, connect it to the “Sensor 2” position.
CAUTION!
If only using one sensor, and it is connected to “Sensor 2” position, the ULTIMA X5000 will enter
Sensor Missing fault. See Disable Sensor in Section 4.2.2 for details on how to clear this fault.

Installing a Remote Sensor Junction Box
Sensors mounted remotely must use the ULTIMA X5000 junction box. Only one sensor can be
connected to each junction box. The junction box housing is the same construction as the
ULTIMA X5000 transmitter. The mounting options and instructions for connecting the sensor are
the same for sensors connected directly to the ULTIMA X5000 transmitter housing. The junction
box is available in 316 Stainless Steel.
Sensors can be remoted up to 328 ft (100 m) from the transmitter housing, as long as the
ULTIMA X5000 transmitter is mounted within maximum distance from the power supply, as indicated in Tab. 1 . The junction box does not have an illuminated display and has two connectors:
a single sensor input and an output connecting to the transmitter. A 16 AWG (1.31mm2) 4 element
cable with a braided shield should be used for the electrical connection between the junction box
and the ULTIMA X5000 transmitter. Specific cable recommendations are Alpha wire 3248 or
equivalent.

3.6 Electrical Power Connections
3.6.1 Electrical Warnings - Read before Connecting Power
WARNING!
Before wiring the ULTIMA X5000 transmitter, disconnect the power source supplying the transmitter and ensure no hazardous atmosphere present; otherwise, electrical shock or ignition of a
hazardous atmosphere could occur.
•
Install wiring in accordance with the electrical code of the country in use, the local authority
having jurisdiction and these installation instructions, as applicable.
• Do not make any connections to the ULTIMA X5000 main board or junction box input, output,
and relay connections while under power. Failure to do so could lead to electrical shock or ignition of a hazardous atmosphere.
• Ensure that water and dirt are not able to enter the unit via the wire or conduit. If the unit is
installed in a location known to be wet or damp, it is good practice to loop or bend the entry
into the unit that prevents water incursion.
• The internal grounding terminal located in the base of the transmitter enclosure must be used
for equipment grounding. The external grounding terminal is only to be used as a supplemental
bonding connection where local authorities permit or require such a connection.
• ULTIMA X5000 digital sensors labeled for Class I hazardous (classified) locations and installed
in a Class I hazardous (classified) location may be changed under power. To change, unscrew
three full turns from its fully engaged position, wait 10 seconds, and then remove the cap
completely. Failure to follow this warning can result in the ignition of a hazardous atmosphere.
• For ULTIMA X5000 digital sensors marked Class II or III and installed in a Class I or III
hazardous location atmosphere must be free of dust or fibers/flyings and the power removed
from the unit before the sensor cap can be removed from the housing. Failure to follow this
warning can result in the ignition of a hazardous atmosphere.
3.6.2 Electrical Hardware Requirements
Braided shielded, twisted pair, instrument quality wire or cable should be used to minimize the
possibility of noise interference and contact with other voltages. Selection of shielded cable must
comply with local requirements.
Conduit, in addition to braided shielded wire, may also be needed in areas where large amounts
of electrical noise is expected. All cable shields should be terminated to earth ground at one end
only.
The ULTIMA X5000’s (RED) power connector terminals can accommodate up to 14 AWG (2.08
mm2). Four conductors are also required for the ULTIMA X5000 remote junction boxes.
Incoming power and signal cables should be a braided shield cable such as Alpha Wire 3248 or
equivalent. The braided shield must be terminated to the instrument housing with a 360 degree
connection to earth ground as shown in Figure 19 or alternatively, the earth ground at the user’s
power source location.An external Class 2 power supply is required to supply 10-30 VDC to the
ULTIMA X5000. Incoming power and signal cables should be a braided shield cable such as
Alpha Wire 3248 or equivalent.

Relay Board Stack Overview
The ULTIMA X5000 can be purchased with three relays. Two of the relays can be configured for
either de-energized (default) or energized and latching or non-latching (default). The third relay is
a dedicated fault relay.
All electrical connections to internal relays can be made directly on the PC board. The board is
labeled for Normally Open (NO) and Normally Closed (NC) de-energized state.

Tab. 4 Relay Specifications
If using AC power, the relay wires should not be run within the same conduit or cable tray as the
DC power supplied to the ULTIMA X5000 or the ULTIMA X5000 junction box connection. A separate wire entry on the device should be used for AC power connected to the relays. The
ULTIMA X5000 is built with an additional wire entry to allow this.
Exceeding the volt-amp rating of the relay can cause damage to the switching contacts.
ULTIMA® X5000

Installation
Relay Connections to Inductive Loads
If connecting the relays to motors, fluorescent lighting, or other inductive loads, it is necessary to
suppress any sparks or inductive feedback that may occur at the relay contact. These effects may
render the unit inoperative.
One way to reduce these effects is to install a Quencharc® (Part Number 630413) across the load
being switched.
Fault Relay Wiring and Configurations
The Fault relay state in non-fault operating condition is Energized and terminal connections are
supplied for Normally Closed and Normally Open.
The energized fault relay setting provides an electrical path for fail-safe relay operation. In the
event of any failure, including loss of power, the relay will change to the de-energized state to
indicate a fault condition.
The Fault relay state cannot be reconfigured.
Relay Energy State and Terminal Connections
The ULTIMA X5000 relays can be selected as energized or de-energized on the device. The
default configuration is the De- Energized state. The preferred relay energy state should be determined before making connections. Table 5 shows the terminal connections by energy state and
is applicable to both relay 1 and relay 2.

Operation
The ULTIMA X5000 Series transmitter is factory calibrated and shipped with the most common
default options to minimize set up effort. Any of the default settings can be changed to meet the
user’s individual needs via the EZ touch buttons on the display of the ULTIMA X5000.
4.1 Startup
4.1.1 Initial Startup
The first time the ULTIMA X5000 is powered on, the analog output goes to the Maintenance Mode
setting (default 3.5 mA) and the following will appear on the display while the LEDs cycle from
GREEN, to RED, to AMBER, then to GREEN:
• ULTIMA X5000 Logo with Software Version No.
• Tachometer countdown
• MSA Logo
XCell oxygen and carbon monoxide (CO) sensors require a 30 minute start-up time before being
fully functional. During this time the analog output signal will be at its maintenance (3.5 mA) level
while the display indicates the 30 minute countdown. All other XCell sensors have a 2 minute
countdown time during which the analog output signal will be at its maintenance (3.5 mA) level.
A full calibration is recommended after one hour of a sensor being installed and acclimated to the
environmental conditions. See section 5 for calibration details.
4.2 Settings
The ULTIMA X5000 is a tool free transmitter. The two EZ touch buttons on the face of the display
can be used to navigate through the menu structure. The buttons are designed for use with fingers
with a “press” and “release” action, and work best without gloves.

Swap Delay
Swap Delay allows the user a brief window to change an XCell sensor without the device going
into a fault condition. Once a sensor is disconnected from the transmitter, the user will have
2 minutes to reconnect a sensor. During this time, the device analog output will go to its Maintenance level. If a sensor is reconnected or replaced during the 2 minute window, the new sensor’s
countdown sequence will begin and the analog output will remain at the Maintenance level. After
the sensor countdown is complete, the analog output will return to reporting a live gas reading. If
a sensor is not reconnected after the 2 minute window, the ULTIMA X5000 will enter a “Sensor
Missing” fault condition. All XCell Sensors have SafeSwap and do not need to be disconnected
from power while changing sensors. For more details on how to change sensors, see section 6.2
. Swap Delay is enabled on all ULTIMA X5000 transmitters by default.

Alarm Actions
Relays can be triggered by an alarm threshold as gas readings increase or decrease. Most applications require increasing alarm thresholds, except for Oxygen monitoring, which is most often a
decreasing alarm.
Relays can also be triggered such that the relays are latched in the alarm state until a user
acknowledges the alarm by placing one finger over each of the EZ touch buttons and holding for
1 second before releasing. If the alarm relay state is chosen to be Non-Latching, the relay will
reset once the alarm condition (gas value) returns to a value outside of the alarming condition.
A user can also disable alarms in the Alarm Actions menu.

Reset Sensor
The sensor default values can be restored by resetting the sensor. If Swap Delay is enabled,
during a sensor reset the analog outputs will behave the same as if a sensor were replaced. See
the section on Swap Delay for details. If Swap Delay is disabled the analog outputs will first go
into a fault condition, followed by the maintenance condition for the duration of the sensor’s countdown.
CAUTION!
The sensor goes into a Sensor Configuration Reset fault and must be calibrated after a sensor
reset. There will be four dashes displayed where the current reading should be.
All settings, including Alarm Set Point and Calibration Values, will be returned to factory defaults.
To Reset Sensor to factory default:
(1)
Scroll to Settings and select it.
(2)
Select Sensor.
(3)
Scroll and select Reset Sensor.
(4)
Select Continue.
Note: Sensor Reset can take 10 seconds to initiate the sensor’s countdown.
(5)
Calibrate the sensor to clear Sensor Configuration Reset fault.
Disable Sensor
When removing a sensor from the transmitter while under power, the ULTIMA X5000 will enter a
Sensor Missing fault condition after the two minute Swap Delay period has expired (if enabled). If
Swap Delay is disabled, the transmitter will go into Sensor Missing fault immediately. If the system
is off at the time a sensor is removed, the transmitter will go into fault after its startup sequence.
This fault condition can be removed by disabling the affected sensor position.
Disabling a sensor removes the fault and stops communications with the sensor, the sensor’s
reading on the display is removed, and the mA channel for that sensor position is set to 0 mA. By
default, the ULTIMA X5000 has the Sensor 2 position disabled. If at any time a sensor is
connected to a position that is disabled, the ULTIMA X5000 will automatically enable that sensor
position.
To disable the sensor after removal:
(1)
Scroll to Settings and select it.
(2)
Select Sensor.
(3)
Scroll and select the sensor you want to disable (Sensor #1 or Sensor #2).
(4)
Scroll and select Disable Sensor.
US
Only one sensor can be disabled at a time. The transmitter will not allow both sensor
positions to be disabled simultaneously.
The ULTIMA X5000 only allows a sensor to be disabled after the transmitter has gone
into Sensor Missing fault.

4.3.1 Life and Health
The Life and Health information reports the general health of the sensor. The sensor Life and
Health can either be “Good” or “Fair”. When sensor status turns to “Fair”, the remaining sensor life
is approximately 2-3 months, and a replacement sensor should be ordered to ensure continuity of
gas detection. XCell sensors with TruCal (Hydrogen Sulfide and Carbon Monoxide) calculate
remaining sensor life using automated pulse checks. The pulse stimulates the sensor with a
response similar to having actual calibration gas applied. The stimulated response is compared
to the last calibration and will make adjustments to sensitivity to match the last calibration. When
the required adjustment is greater than the accuracy of the algorithm’s adjustment, the sensor will
call for a calibration. The pulse check tracks the overall degradation in sensitivity and will adjust
the Life and Health status from “Good” to “Fair” when loss of sensitivity is due to overall sensor
health. TruCal pulse checks will also detect when the sensor is no longer capable of sensing gas,
resulting in a Fault condition.

Calibration
Calibration is the process of applying a known quantity of gas to the transmitter so that the transmitter can adjust the precision and accuracy of the measurements made in normal operating
mode. This process ensures that gas measurements are as accurate as possible.
Calibration Warnings - Read before Calibrating
Although ULTIMA X5000 sensors are factory calibrated, another calibration is recommended
once the unit is installed in its final environmental destination.
WARNING!
Use zero gas when zeroing the ULTIMA X5000 transmitter if there is any possibility of background
gas. Otherwise, improper calibration could occur.
Always calibrate for the least sensitive gas or vapor (higher number category) expected to be
measured. Otherwise, instrument readings may be incorrect.
CAUTION!
Before attempting a calibration, power the unit at least for one full hour.
Perform a calibration at initial start-up and at regular intervals to ensure a fully functional sensor.
5.1
Calibration Equipment
A gas cylinder with a known concentration of gas appropriate for the range of measurement is
needed. Sensors come with preset span gas values appropriate for the measurement range. See
Tab. 36 for Default Span Values by Sensor Type. Calibration kits are available from MSA for calibration of the ULTIMA X5000. The kits come housed in a convenient carrying case and contain
all items necessary for a complete and accurate calibration, including a 1 L/min regulator, tubing,
and Calibration Caps. See table 11 to select the appropriate kit for the sensor type. The calibration
kit can also be ordered without a gas cylinder (Part Number CALKIT1).

Calibration Frequency
The frequency of calibration gas testing depends on the operating time, chemical exposure, and
type of sensor. Especially in new installations or applications, it is recommended that the first
sensors be calibrated more often to establish the sensor performance in this particular environment.
For this, you typically record the "as found" and "as left" gas values and track the percent adjustment over time. Then, gradually extend calibration intervals until the percent adjustment is greater
than the expected accuracy of the sensor.
Calibration Frequency for XCell Sensors with TruCal (H2S & CO only)
XCell sensors with TruCal actively self-monitor for operation and accuracy with fewer manual calibrations required in order to maintain the equivalent level of performance. When the sensor
detects a change in sensitivity outside what is typical for a six hour time interval, the sensor will
call for a calibration. The transmitter LED status indicators slowly pulse green, alerting the user
that a calibration is recommended to maintain optimum performance. There are no changes to the
analog output when TruCal calls for a manual calibration.
Actual TruCal sensor performance will depend on the application, background gas exposure, and
environment. To validate XCell sensors with TruCal, it is recommended that users follow their
regular calibration cycle and record the “as found” and “as left” values, tracking the percent adjustment over time. Once a baseline is established, the calibration intervals can be extended until the
percent adjustment is greater than the expected accuracy of the sensor.

Calibration Types: Zero vs. Span
The ULTIMA X5000 has two types of calibration: Zero and Span calibration.
Zero Calibration resets the baseline level reading to zero. If the target gas is suspected to be occasionally present, it is best to also use a zero gas cylinder during the zero calibration. If the target
gas is not present in the atmosphere, an additional calibration cylinder is not required.
The "Calibrate" option involves first applying a zero gas followed by the span gas. The span gas
is a known concentration of gas which adjusts the accuracy and precision of the transmitter to the
known value; this is referred to as the “Span Value. See Figure 28.
Fig. 28
Calibration Curve
The Sensor Span Value in the device menu should be the same as the concentration listed on the
calibration gas cylinder; unless an LEL simulant gas is being used.
The XIR PLUS sensor can be calibrated to a wide variety of gas compounds using either 0.1 %
Propane, 0.6 % Propane, or 2.5 % Methane and MSA's gas table. See table 15 for a complete list
of gas compounds and corresponding tables and span values.

How to Zero Calibrate XCell Sensors
NOTICE
If a password is enabled, you will not be able to proceed with the calibration without the password.
To abort, press either button on the touchscreen or mobile application at any time during
the zero calibration.
In the event that a calibration cannot be completed, the user can acknowledge the FAIL
by placing one finger over each of the EZ touch buttons and holding for 1 second before
releasing. The unit will revert to the settings of the last successful calibration.
WARNING!
The regulator used with the zero gas cylinder should not be the same as the regulator used for
the span gas. The regulator can be contaminated with the target gas over time, and thus raise the
detection baseline and make the sensor less sensitive to the target gas.
If there is no target gas in the atmosphere around the sensor, using a zero gas cylinder
is optional.
To Zero calibrate the sensor,
(1)
Attach the Sensor Guard to the bottom of the sensor.
(2)
Place the green Calibration Cap over the Sensor Guard inlet so that it is flush with the bottom
of the Sensor Guard and completely covers the Sensor Guard inlet.
(3)
Attach the tubing to the plastic stem protruding through the green Calibration Cap.
(4)
Screw the regulator onto the top of the zero gas cylinder.
If a password is enabled, you will need to enter it here.
(5)

How to Calibrate an Oxygen XCell Sensor
An oxygen span gas cylinder is not needed if the sensor is in an area that maintains ambient air
conditions. Follow the same process for XCell sensors as described in section 5.6 . When the
display prompts "Apply Span Gas", simply allow the countdown to occur without applying gas.
If the sensor is located in an area of normally low or enriched oxygen, then a 20.8% oxygen
sample must be applied.
How to Calibrate an XIR PLUS Sensor
A full span calibration is not required for the XIR PLUS sensors. Any degradation of the sensor's
performance is associated with slight drifts in its zero response. Restoring the sensor's zero is
typically sufficient.
The XIR PLUS Sensor Guard comes attached to the XIR PLUS sensor. The XIR PLUS Calibration
Cap is placed over the Sensor Guard so that it is completely covered. Line up the cap so that the
Sensor Guard stem protrudes through the Calibration Cap. Zero or calibration gas tubing is then
attached to the Sensor Guard via the stem.
The Calibration Cap must be removed from the XIR PLUS Sensor Guard after
completing a zero or span calibration.
5.9
XCell Catalytic Bead LOC Over Range
Catalytic bead sensors require the presence of oxygen in order to sense combustible gas. In the
event of very large combustible gas leaks that exceed 100 % LEL, enough oxygen can be
displaced so that the sensor's response to gas is no longer proportional to the calibration profile.
The XCell catalytic bead has a locking fail safe mechanism that prevents the false reporting of a
safe condition while the % LEL concentration is still above 100 % LEL. When the gas concentration exceeds 100 % LEL, the sensor will go into LOC over range.
To clear the LOC over rage, the user needs to acknowledge and calibrate the sensor. To acknowledge LOC over range, place one finger over each of the EZ touch buttons and hold for 1 second
before releasing. This will allow a recalibration of the sensor to clear the LOC condition.
CAUTION!
Ensure that the area has been cleared of gas before acknowledging the LOC Over Range and
recalibrating the sensor.
5.10 Calibration Confirmation
The ULTIMA X5000 Gas Monitor records the date of the last successful calibration. This date can
then be displayed on the OLED display under the Status Menu.

Maintenance
WARNING!
Repair or alteration of the device, beyond the procedures described in this manual or by anyone
other than a person authorized by MSA, could cause the unit to fail to perform properly. Use only
genuine MSA replacement parts when performing any maintenance procedures described in this
manual.
Substitution of components can seriously impair performance of the device, alter intrinsic safety
and flameproof/explosion proof characteristics or void agency approvals. Failure to follow this
warning can result in serious personal injury or death.
6.1
The ULTIMA X5000 Gas Monitor is constantly performing a self-check. When a problem is found,
it displays the appropriate error message. When a critical error is detected within the device, the
4-20 mA output signal goes to a fault condition.
ULTIMA XIR PLUS Cleaning Procedure
The presence of particulate matter, oil films, liquid water, or the residue from water drops on the
two monitor windows can adversely affect its performance. The XIR PLUS Sensor Guard is
designed to prevent foreign solids or liquids from reaching the monitor's optical system. Additionally, heating elements are incorporated into the device to prevent water condensation. Under
severe conditions, however, some material may collect on these surfaces and it may be necessary to occasionally check and clean the windows.
While both windows are made of a highly durable material that is not easily scratched, avoid
excessive pressure when cleaning them. Clean, cotton-tipped applicators are the most convenient
tool to remove material collected on the windows.
•
•
•
Use a dry applicator or one moistened with distilled water to wipe the window and remove dust.
Use an additional clean, dry applicator to remove any residual water.
Use an applicator moistened with isopropyl alcohol to remove heavy deposits of solids, liquids
or oil films. Clean the window again with a second applicator moistened with distilled water;
then, dry the window with a final applicator.
• Avoid using excessive amounts of water or alcohol in the cleaning procedure, and inspect the
window to ensure that the entire surface is clean.
• The device will go into a “Low Signal” fault during cleaning with an analog output to 2.0 mA. .
To clean the XIR PLUS sensor:
(1)
Remove the Sensor Guard.
(2)
Place an opaque object (piece of paper, cardboard, etc.) between the light source window
and the mirror to completely obscure the light path for two to three seconds.
US
The ULTIMA X5000 analog output is in a fault condition while sensor is partially blocked.
The display will indicate “Low Signal'’.
While in “Low Signal” fault, the sensor will not respond to the presence of gas.
ULTIMA® X5000
51
Maintenance
(3)
When cleaning is done and the objects are removed from the sensor window, the device
returns to normal operation. If water or isopropyl alcohol was used, allow the device to
operate for 15 minutes to completely dry before replacing the Sensor Guard and continuing
to monitor for combustible gas.
(4)
Replace the Sensor Guard or flow cap.
When the cleaning process is complete, be sure to remove all objects from the light
path. It is recommended to check the sensor’s response to zero and calibration gas
after cleaning.
WARNING!
Do not place foreign objects in the sensor's analytical region (except for the “ULTIMA XIR PLUS
Cleaning Procedure” as described above); otherwise, the infrared beam can be partially blocked,
causing the sensor to generate false readings. All objects must be removed from the sensor's
analytical region for it to function properly.
6.2
Replacing an XCell Sensor
The only routine maintenance item is the sensing element itself, which has a limited lifetime. The
ULTIMA X5000 sensors with TruCal technology will indicate when the sensor is near end of life
through the Status Menu. When the Sensor Life & Health status is "Fair", you have approximately
2 months to replace the sensor before it will no longer function. When a TruCal sensor is no longer
capable of sensing it will go into fault and LEDs will flash yellow. It is good practice to obtain a
replacement sensing element before the sensing element within your unit becomes inoperative.
WARNING!
Handle the sensor carefully; the electrochemical version is a sealed unit which contains a corrosive electrolyte.
Any leaked electrolyte that comes in contact with skin, eyes or clothes can cause burns.
If any contact with the electrolyte does occur, immediately rinse with a large quantity of water. On
contact with the eyes, rinse thoroughly with water for 15 minutes and consult a doctor.
CAUTION!
Do not install a leaking sensor in the sensing head assembly. The leaking sensor must be
disposed of in accordance with local, state and federal laws.
US
There is no need to open the main enclosure. Simply unscrew the XCell sensor from the Sensor
Body Assembly.
ULTIMA® X5000

Maintenance
WARNING!
ULTIMA X5000 digital sensors labeled for Class I Hazardous (Classified) locations and installed
in a Class I Hazardous (Classified) location only may be changed under power. To change,
unscrew sensor three full turns from its fully engaged position, wait 10 seconds, and then remove
the sensor completely. Failure to follow this warning can result in the ignition of a hazardous
atmosphere.
For ULTIMA X5000 digital sensors marked Class II or III and installed in a Class II or III hazardous
location, the atmosphere must be free of dust or fibers and filings and the power removed from
the unit before the sensor cap can be removed from the housing. Failure to follow this warning can
result in the ignition of a hazardous atmosphere.
Identify the sensor assembly needed via the A-5K-SENS code on the interior sensor label and
obtain the appropriate sensor assembly. Screw the replacement XCell sensor onto the Sensor
Body Assembly, ensuring that the XCell sensor mates flush against the bottom edge of the Sensor
Body Assembly.
Alarm set points, span value, full scale limit and alarm direction will not change when
replacing a sensor with the same gas and range. Alarm set points, span value, full
scale limit and alarm direction will change to the new sensor settings when replacing
a sensor with a different gas and/or range.
The ULTIMA X5000 Gas Monitor is shipped with the Sensor Swap Delay enabled. This means
that the 4-20 mA output signal and the FAULT relay will hold off a fault indication for two minutes
before the missing sensor indication is displayed on the device. This setting allows the operator
to exchange sensor modules without a FAULT indication. See Swap Delay in section 4.2.1 for
more details.
It is recommended that all other maintenance be performed at an MSA
factory-authorized service center.
