INTRODUCTION
The Evoqua Water Technologies Series 50-130 Acutec™ 35 Gas Detection
system is an on-line monitoring system for the detection of chlorine (Cl2),
sulfur dioxide (SO2), or ammonia (NH3) gas in ambient air. Alarm contacts are
provided to transfer at user selectable setpoints. Monitor modules provide
a digital readout of gas level and a 4-20 mA output. Single or Dual Units are
available, using any combination of gas detectors and monitors or alarm units.
One Receiver Module is connected to each gas Sensor/Transmitter with a
two-conductor cable, and provides information on the gas concentration in
the sensor area. Receivers are powered by the Power Supply Module supplied
with the Gas Detector system.
The Series 50-130 Sensor/Transmitter consists of an electrochemical gas sensor and an electronic amplifier that transmits a gas concentration signal to a
Receiver Module located in the Control Unit. An optional gas generator may
be ordered which enables the Receiver to automatically test the sensor every
24 hours.

Interferences
Electrochemical sensors are, by nature, not 100% selective; therefore, they
can exhibit response to other gases present in ambient air.
The following tables list the possible interferences that may occur when using
the different gas sensors. The tables indicate the relative response of the sensor to 1 ppm of the listed gas, expressed in terms of relative ppm signal. For
example: exposure of a chlorine sensor to a gas sample containing 1 ppm of
nitrogen dioxide (NO2) would produce a signal equal to 0.4 ppm of chlorine. A
negative sign (-) indicates an interference that can cause low gas measurements
if there is a mixture of the measured gas and another gas.

General Installation
NOTE: Power supply or Receiver modules may be shipped with protective
transparent plastic covers. These covers should be peeled off and discarded.
System enclosures, Battery Back-up units, and Sensor/Transmitters are all designed for surface mounting using screws or bolts inserted through the recessed
mounting holes at each corner of the enclosures. Mounting hole dimensions
are shown on the appropriate diagram. Included with each system enclosure
are mounting hole templates which can be used to mark hole centers on walls
or mounting panels. Mounting recesses are suitable for #8 machine screws or
wood screws.
Refer to paragraph 3.4.1, Sensor Installation, for specific information on locating gas sensors.
Enclosures are supplied with conduit hubs and seal rings for water-tight connection of 1/2” NPT threaded conduit. Plastic cable glands may also be purchased
to connect cables without conduit.
Install the 1/2” conduit hubs in any enclosure knockout labeled PG16. Note
that some knockouts have more than one designation, such as PG11/16.
Those with two designations will have concentric circles for knockouts. The
inner circle marks the lower PG number while the outer circle marks the
higher number. Place a thin bladed screwdriver into the circular slot or the
desired knockout size and tap firmly with a hammer (see Figure 2.1). Place
the seal over the hub threads on the outside of the enclosure and attach
the hub with the supplied nut.
Figure 2.1
The Acutec™ unit should not be exposed to direct sunlight. Continuous ambient temperature should not exceed 105 °F. When this temperature is likely to
be approached, it is recommended that relays be used in the non-energized
mode, and the display be set to normal intensity (Monitor Units only). See
Section 3 for details.

ACUTEC™ 35 SYSTEM
The Gas Detector is factory set to alarm when gas concentrations above the
chosen setpoints are exceeded; however, if switch A1 is set to the ON position,
alarms will be initiated when gas concentration is below the setpoint.
3.2.4
Relay Configuration
• FACTORY CONFIGURATION OF RELAYS —
* Relay 1 – Configured to trip above the Warning setpoint and set for
normally energized, non-latching operation.
* Relay 2 – Configured to trip above the Alarm setpoint and set for normally energized, latching operation.
* Relay 3 – Configured to trip above the Alarm setpoint and set for normally energized, latching operation, not for horn operation.
* Alarm Delay – Configured for two-second delay.
• WARNING OR ALARM — Each relay can be assigned to either the Warning
or Alarm setpoint. As shown in the DIP SWITCH FUNCTIONS chart, switches
D3, D6, and C6 configure each relay. When Warning is selected, the relay
will activate when the Warning lamp on the front panel lights. When Alarm
is selected, the relay will activate with the Alarm lamp on the front panel.
• NORMALLY ENERGIZED/DE-ENERGIZED — Relays one through three are
factory set to the normally energized mode, providing “Fail-Safe” operation. This means the relays are energized in a normal condition and will
de-energize for a Warning or Alarm condition, or if power is lost to the
system. However, operation in this mode will reduce the period of operation
on Battery Back-up. The relays may be set to the normally de-energized
mode by setting switches C8, D5, and D8 to the off position. To avoid battery drain and internal heat generation, unused relays should be set to
Normally De-Energized.
• LATCHING OR NON-LATCHING — Relays may be either Latching or Nonlatching. A latching relay activates when gas concentration exceeds the
setpoint, but will only de-activate when the push-button on the front of
the receiver is pressed after the gas concentration has fallen below the
setpoint. A non-latching relay will automatically de-activate when the gas
concentration falls below the setpoint. Selection of the latch/non-latch
function uses switches D4, D7, and C7.
• EXTERNAL HORN RELAY — Relay 3 provides an additional configuration option not available on relays 1 or 2. Switch C5 allows Relay 3 to be configured
for use in activating an external audible horn. When switch C5 is on, any
external horn tied to Relay 3 will sound intermittently when the warning
setpoint is exceeded and will go to steady-on when the alarm setpoint is
exceeded. The relay will de-activate when the push-button switch is pressed
or when the remote reset terminals are connected, silencing the external
horn.

3.2.5
Alarm Delay
A time delay precedes the activation of alarm relays to eliminate false alarms
due to electrical transients. The delay is factory set to two seconds, but can be
changed to 10 seconds with switch B1. The delay time affects both the alarm
indicator lamps and the associated relays.
3.2.6
Display Intensity (Monitor Units Only)
The LED numeric display is factory set in the normal intensity mode, and can
be set for high intensity by the user; however, to avoid internal heating, and
battery drain, it is recommended that the display remain at normal intensity.
Switch D2 is used to select normal or high intensity display mode.
3.2.7
Auto-Test Enable
The receiver module is shipped from the factory with the Auto-Test option
disabled. If the Autotest Gas Generator (optional) is installed on the system,
the receiver module cover must be removed and the autotest switch (D1) must
be moved to the “on” position.
NOTE: The Auto-Test option is for indoor use only, and should only be used
with detectors set to the standard range or lower, as listed in Section 1.1 –
Technical Data. If used with higher ranges, the generator may not produce
enough gas to test the sensor.
3.3
Receiver Module Startup
Receiver front panels contain three LED bars which indicate Warning, Alarm,
and Sensor Trouble conditions. A fourth, green bar LED is marked with the type
of gas which the receiver operates with. Monitor type receivers have a four
digit numeric LED display which indicates gas concentration in ppm.
When power is first applied, all alarm functions will be inhibited for five minutes
while the system is allowed to stabilize. This is indicated by Warning and Alarm
lamps flashing in an alternating pattern. Monitors will display the Full Scale
Range setting for three seconds, then the Warning Setpoint for three seconds,
followed by the Alarm Setpoint for three seconds. The display will then indicate
the detected gas level, which will appear to be high until the sensor stabilizes.
NOTE: It is strongly recommended that sensors be powered overnight upon
initial startup before adjustments are made and before connections are made
to alarm relays. Sensors which are powered for the first time may remain in
an alarm state beyond the five minute inhibit period and may take several
hours to fully stabilize.

ACUTEC™ 35 SYSTEM
3.3.1
Alarm Acknowledge and Reset
The front panel of the Receiver contains one push-button, marked Accept/
Reset, which is used for a number of different functions. When the Receiver
is in normal operation, a gas leak that exceeds the warning setpoint will cause
the Warning indicator to flash and the internal horn to sound intermittently.
If the alarm setpoint is exceeded, the Alarm indicator will flash and the horn
will sound steadily. Pressing the button the first time will silence the audible
horn, and will change the Warning and Alarm indicators from flash to steadyon. The Warning indicator will automatically shut off when gas concentration
falls below the setpoint, but the Alarm indicator will remain on. Pressing the
button after the gas has cleared will reset the Alarm indicator.
Operation of the alarm relays depends on the configuration selected for each
one (see paragraph 3.2.1, Configuration Switches).
3.3.2
Sensor Trouble Alarm and Relays
Receivers contain a Trouble Relay which is associated with the Sensor Trouble
indicator. A Sensor Trouble Alarm will be activated if the transmitter input is
disconnected or shorted or if the Detector fails to pass an auto-test. If these
conditions occur, the Sensor Trouble indicator will light, the horn will sound
intermittently, and the Trouble Relay will change state. Note that the Trouble
Relay is a fail-safe relay. Under normal conditions, the coil of this relay is energized, and it de-energizes when a Sensor Trouble Alarm occurs or if power fails.
After the trouble condition clears, press the push-button or close the remote
reset contacts to reset the Sensor Trouble Alarm.
3.3.3
Auto-Test Function
NOTE: The Auto-Test option is for indoor use only, and should only be used
with detectors set to the standard range or lower, as listed in Section 1.1 –
Technical Data. If used with higher ranges, the generator may not produce
enough gas to test the sensor.
The optional Auto-Test feature verifies the proper operation of gas detection
systems automatically. It is enabled when configuration switch D1 is in the “on”
position. Auto-Test uses an electrochemical Gas Generator attached to the gas
sensor and controlled from the receiver. Every 24 hours, the microcomputer
in the receiver activates the Gas Generator and monitors the output of the
gas sensor.
During the time when an Auto-Test is in progress, the alarm relays are inhibited. This is indicated by the warning and alarm indicators alternately flashing.
Typically, an auto-test will last only a few seconds. After completion of the
test the alarm response will be delayed to allow gas to clear from the sensor/
generator and for the sensor to recover. The system will be fully inhibited for
WT.050.130.000.UA.IM.0614
26
EVOQUA
W3T129671
ACUTEC™ 35 SYSTEM
two minutes, followed by an eight minute period during which the detector
will respond only to gas levels of greater than 50% of full scale.
When the Auto-Test is activated, the generator will turn on for a maximum of
five minutes. If no sensor response is detected during this time, the generator
will turn off and the receiver will wait for 15 minutes before initiating another
Auto-Test. If it fails this second test, a Sensor Trouble Alarm will be initiated,
as described earlier. The Receiver will auto-test two more times at one hour
intervals. If the sensor passes either of these tests, the Sensor Trouble Alarm
will reset.
3.3.4
Lamp and Horn Test
When the Receiver is in the normal mode, pressing the push-button and
holding it for two seconds will illuminate all digital display segments and LED
indicator bars, and will sound the internal horn. Upon releasing the button,
the receiver will return to its previous state.
3.3.5
Relay Inhibit
Alarm relays in the Receiver can be inhibited for up to four hours to allow
calibration or testing of Sensor/Transmitters without activating external alarm
or control devices.
To initiate the inhibit mode, with the Receiver in the normal mode, press and
hold the push-button for approximately five seconds. The lamp test will occur
first, but continue to hold the button down. Once the lamps have shut off, release the button. The warning and alarm lamps will begin to flash alternately
for a few seconds. If the Auto-Test configuration switch is in the “on” position
and the push-button is not pressed, the Sensor trouble lamp will flash after the
Alarm/Warning lamps have stopped flashing. If no action is taken, the Receiver
will return to the normal mode.
If the push-button is pressed and released while the warning and alarm lamps
are in alternating flash, the Receiver will go into the relay inhibit mode. The
warning and alarm lamps will continue their alternating rapid flash, and the
Receiver will remain in inhibit for four hours or until the button is pressed again.
During this period, the display will indicate gas concentration, and the 4-20
mA output will be held at the level it was at before inhibit was initiated, but
the relays will not activate. Transmitters may be calibrated while the inhibit is
on without setting off external alarms.
When the receiver is in inhibit, the display reads the actual signal down to 0
ppm, and will read negative if the sensor is out of calibration. Normally, the
microcomputer sets the display to zero when the signal is less than two percent
of full scale, to avoid false readings due to drift and environmental conditions.
Because relays are inhibited and the display blanking is bypassed, the inhibit
mode is convenient for calibrating the Sensor/Transmitter.

3.3.6
Manual Auto-Test
Gas detection systems purchased with the optional Autotest Generator may be
tested by manual activation of the Generator from the receiver module. This
function will operate only if the Auto-Test configuration switch D1 is “on”. To
manually start the Auto-Test function, with the Receiver in the normal mode,
follow the sequence described in paragraph 3.3.5, Relay Inhibit, but press the
push-button when the Sensor trouble lamp is flashing. The horn will sound a
quick beep and the green gas indicator will begin to flash, indicating that the
generator is running. The system will go through a normal Auto-Test sequence,
exactly the same as the sequence used every 24 hours. The display will show
increasing gas values as the sensor begins to respond. When the microcomputer
identifies a successful test, the horn will sound one beep. The relay inhibit
indication will remain on until the sensor has had time to recover.
If the test fails, a Sensor trouble response will be initiated. Pressing the pushbutton will silence the horn, but the Sensor trouble contact and light will remain
latched on, and cannot be reset until after a 10-minute period. The Sensor/
Transmitter should be checked. Either the Sensor or Generator has failed, or
something is physically blocking the path between the two. Methods for testing
individual gas sensors can be found in Section 4 – Service.
3.3.7
Remote Reset
Receivers are provided with input terminals for connection of a remote reset
switch. The remote reset input provides horn silence and alarm reset functions
using a switch located at any remote point. When receivers are located at sites
with telemetry equipment, the remote reset input may be connected to a relay
contact in the telemetry system.
The remote reset input accomplishes the same acknowledge and reset functions as the push-button on the front panel. When a switch closure is detected
across the remote reset terminals, the detector horn will silence and any latching
relays will reset, provided that the gas condition has cleared. The remote reset
input will not activate any of the testing or inhibit functions of the receiver.
3.3.8
Analog Output
Monitor Receivers provide an isolated 4-20 mA output signal for interface with
recorders, data loggers, or computer systems. The span of the 4-20 mA signal
is the same as the range of the receiver selected during the receiver configuration. The output will drive loads of 0 to 1000 ohms.

3.4
Sensor/Transmitter Operation
Gas sensors are attached directly to transmitter boxes with a water-tight seal.
A short sensor cable plugs into the transmitter circuit board. The optional Gas
Generator is attached to the sensor and connects to a terminal block on the
circuit board.
The Receiver provides power to the Sensor/Transmitter through a two-conductor
cable, which is also used to transmit the signal back to the Receiver. The Sensor/Transmitter may not be used with a separate power source.
3.4.1
Sensor Installation (See Dwg. 50.130.150.001)
Sensor/Transmitters must be mounted with the sensor horizontal.
NOTE: Gas sensors are shipped with a protective red plastic cap over the
end. This cap should be left in place to avoid damage to the sensor physically
or from chemical vapors, until ready for service. This cap must be removed
when the sensor is placed in service.
Installation wiring requires connection of a two-conductor cable from the
receiver to TB1 as shown. This connection is not polarity sensitive; either
conductor can be connected to either terminal.
The Autotest Generator is connected to TB2. Polarity must be observed as shown.
NOTE: The Auto-Test option is for indoor use only, and should only be used
with detectors set to the standard range or lower, as listed in Section 1.1 –
Technical Data. If used with higher ranges, the Generator may not produce
enough gas to test the sensor.
It is recommended that when first installed, a sensor should be connected to
a Receiver and allowed to stabilize for approximately 12 hours. The sensor
should then be zeroed as described in Section 4 – Service.
3.4.2
Sensor Location (Chlorine, Sulfur Dioxide, And Ammonia)
Chlorine and Sulfur Dioxide gases are heavier than air and will tend to accumulate near the floor in a closed room with little air movement. Ideally, these
sensors should be located one to two feet off the floor in closed storage rooms,
but may be located at higher elevations where good air flow will quickly mix
any leaking gas throughout the space.
WT.050.130.000.UA.IM.0614
29
EVOQUA
W3T129671
ACUTEC™ 35 SYSTEM
Ammonia gas is lighter than air and will tend to accumulate near the ceiling in
a closed room with little air movement. Ideally, this sensor should be located
near the ceiling in closed storage rooms, but may be located at lower elevations
where good air flow will quickly mix any leaking gas throughout the space.
Outdoor sensor locations require that prevailing wind patterns, likely personnel work areas, and most probable leak sources all be evaluated to determine
where sensors will detect gas most reliably. Autotest Generators are not for
outdoor use. However, because of outside influences, such as wind direction,
outside operation is questionable.
3.5
Battery Back-Up Operation
When power is applied to the power supply module, a relay on the Battery
Back-up circuit board energizes and places the Battery Back-up into operation.
To unlatch battery, see paragraph 4.1, Removing Unit From Service. There
are no user adjustments in the Battery Back-up unit. If the battery is not fully
charged, the power supply will begin supplying charge current to the battery,
and will float charge the battery as long as the power supply is on.
If the power supply loses its input power, the Battery Back-up will immediately
supply power to receiver modules to maintain detection system operation
without interruption. The back-up period varies depending on whether the
detector is single or dual channel, on whether displays are in normal or high
intensity mode, and on how many relays are configured for fail-safe operation.
Minimum expected Battery Back-up is 12 hours for single channel and six hours
for dual channel.
The circuit board attached to the battery serves two functions. First, it limits
battery charging current to a maximum of 0.75 amps. This prevents possible
damage to the battery due to an excessively high charge current. Second, a
low-voltage drop-out relay isolates the battery from the detection system when
the battery voltage falls below 10 volts. This protects the battery against damage caused by the deep discharge.

4.1
Removing Unit From Service
The low-voltage drop-out relay on the Battery Back-up unit is energized as soon
as power is applied to the power supply module. Once energized, the coil current is supplied from the power supply module initially, but will be supplied
from the battery if power is removed from the power supply module, or if the
module is disconnected from the battery. If the gas detection system supported
by the Battery Back-up is started up for testing and then shut down, the Battery
Back-up relay should be de-energized manually; otherwise, the relay coil will
continue to drain the battery until the 10 volt level is reached. This will shorten
the life of the battery, and the battery will be discharged when the detection
system is started up again.
To de-energize the relay, slide the control circuit board off the battery terminals
until the relay coil drops out (there will be a click), and then slide it back on.
As soon as the battery connection is broken, the relay coil will drop out, and
will not energize until power is again applied to the power supply module.
This procedure is recommended any time the detection system is removed
from service.
4.2
4.2.1
Sensor Service
General Sensor Response Test
Gas sensors should be checked regularly for proper response. For systems not
equipped with Auto-Test, at least monthly manual sensor response testing is
recommended.
The sensor response test described below should also be used if the AutoTest system detects a sensing failure and lights the Sensor trouble lamp. If the
sensor responds to manually applied gas but not to the Autotest Generator,
replace the generator.
The sensor response test will activate alarm relays unless they are inhibited
as described in paragraph 3.3.5, Relay Inhibit. Sensor response to the test
gas may be observed by: viewing the digital display on Monitor Receivers, by
monitoring the voltage at the test points in the transmitter, by viewing the
Warning and Alarm lights on the Receiver, or by observing the operation of
alarm relays in the receiver.
4.2.2
Chlorine Sensor Response Test
A high concentration of chlorine gas can be obtained from powdered calcium
hypochlorite (HTH) available from any swimming pool supply. Place a teaspoon
of calcium hypochlorite into a plastic bottle and keep the bottle capped until
ready to test the sensor. Open the bottle and place the mouth near the sensor.
After the sensor response has been verified, immediately remove the bottle

as prolonged exposure to high concentrations of chlorine will shorten the life
of the sensor. If no response is observed, the sensor may need to be replaced.
See paragraph 4.8, Troubleshooting.
4.2.3
Sulfur Dioxide Sensor Response Test
Sulfur Dioxide sensors can be tested with fresh powdered sodium bisulfite
placed in a squeeze bottle. A vapor of a few ppm can be squeezed toward the
sensor. If the sensor does not respond, it may need to be replaced. See paragraph 4.8, Troubleshooting.
NOTE: If the sodium bisulfite is not fresh, it may not produce a high enough
concentration to test the sensor.
4.2.4
Ammonia Sensor Response Test
Ammonia sensors can be tested using ordinary ammonia solution used for
cleaning. Open a bottle of ammonia solution and carefully move the mouth of
the bottle near the sensor. Do not splash liquid ammonia solution on the sensor
or it could damage the sensor. When the mouth of the bottle is approximately
one inch from the sensor, a rapid response should be observed. Immediately
remove the ammonia bottle as prolonged exposure to high concentrations of
ammonia will shorten the life of the sensor. If the sensor does not respond it
may need to be replaced. See paragraph 4.8, Troubleshooting.
4.3
Sensor Replacement (See Dwg. 50.130.150.001)
Open the Transmitter and unplug the Sensor cable from the transmitter circuit
board. Unscrew the Sensor from the nut on the inside of the enclosure and
screw in the replacement Sensor.
Connect the new Sensor to the pins on the transmitter board and replace the
Transmitter cover. After a new Sensor has been connected, allow 12 hours for
the new Sensor to completely stabilize. Then perform zero and span adjustments as described in this section.
!
WARNING: THE GENERAL SENSOR RESPONSE TEST, AS DESCRIBED ABOVE,
MUST BE PERFORMED WHENEVER A NEW SENSOR IS INSTALLED.
NOTE: It is strongly recommended that sensors be powered overnight upon
initial startup before adjustments are made and before connections are made
to alarm relays. Sensors that are powered for the first time may remain in
an alarm state beyond the five-minute inhibit period and may take several
hours to fully stabilize.

Gas Generator Replacement (See Dwg. 50.130.150.001)
To replace, disconnect the Generator leads from the terminal block marked TB2.
Loosen the cable gland, pull the wires out of the enclosure, and unscrew the
Generator from the sensor. Reverse the process to install the new Generator.
Observe the wiring polarity when installing the new Generator.
Once installed, the new Generator should be tested by running the Manual
Auto-Test procedure described in paragraph 3.3.6. If no sensor response is
observed, recheck the Generator connection to be sure the polarity is correct
and that switch D1 in the Receiver Module is in the “on” position. If the sensor
still does not respond, test the sensor with the appropriate Sensor Response
Test described in paragraph 4.2. If the sensor does not respond, replace it. If
the sensor responds properly, contact Evoqua Water Technologies for assistance
with the Generator.
4.5
Sensor Calibration (See Dwg. 50.130.150.001)
The zero may drift with temperature, and it is recommended that the sensor
zero be adjusted upon initial installation and every month after. At minimum,
seasonal adjustments should be made to avoid false alarms due to zero drift.
For applications where precise indication of gas level is required, Sensor/
Transmitters should be spanned every three to six months. The best calibration
sources are generally 10% accurate, and a Sensor/Transmitter will normally
change sensitivity by less than 25% over 12-months time. If on-site calibration is not practical, it is recommended that a new, factory calibrated Sensor/
Transmitter be purchased every two years.
NOTE: It is essential that the transmitter zero and span adjustments be
re-calibrated whenever sensors or transmitter circuit boards are replaced
independently.
Calibration of the Sensor/Transmitter requires a digital volt meter (DVM), a
source of calibration gas and a calibration adapter for the sensor.
For CHLORINE, electrochemical generators are typically used for calibration gas.
SULFUR DIOXIDE gas can be obtained in disposable cylinders from specialty gas
suppliers. AMMONIA calibration gas can be obtained in refillable high pressure
cylinders from specialty gas suppliers. For more information on calibration gas
equipment, contact your Evoqua Water Technologies equipment distributor.
Proper tubing should be used to connect gas sources to sensors, particularly
chlorine. Polyethylene tubing is recommended for all gases.
Prior to calibration, remove the cover from the Sensor/Transmitter enclosure
and connect a DVM to the test points as shown in Figure 4.1. The test points
will provide a 0-1.00 Vdc signal proportional to transmitter range. For example,
a range of 0 to 10 ppm, 0 ppm is 0.00 volts and 10.0 ppm is 1.00 volts.

NOTE: If alarm relays at the receiver are connected to devices that should
not be activated during calibration, place the receiver into “alarm inhibit” as
described in paragraph 3.3.5, Relay Inhibit, prior to calibrating the Sensor/
Transmitter.
4.5.1
Zero Adjustment (See Dwg. 50.130.150.001)
Before adjusting the zero, allow the sensor to fully stabilize by leaving it on for
approximately 12 hours. Ambient air must be “clean”.
The zero can be adjusted with just a DVM. Connect the meter to the test points,
and adjust the zero potentiometer until a stable value of 0.00 volts is obtained.
4.5.2
Transmitter Span (See Dwg. 50.130.150.001)
Before adjusting the span, the sensor must be fully stabilized and the zero
adjusted. See paragraph 4.5.1, Zero Adjustment.
If a Sensor/Transmitter is equipped with an Autotest Generator, it must first
be unscrewed from the sensor. The Calibration Adapter can then be attached
to the sensor.
The calibration gas is connected to the calibration adapter with an appropriate tube. When used, gas generators must be allowed to stabilize according
to the manufacturer’s directions. Calibration gas is applied at approximately
500 cc/min and should be allowed to flow to the sensor for 10 minutes before
adjusting the span.
Connect the DVM to the transmitter test points. Adjust the span potentiometer
until a stable voltage reading is obtained according to the following equation:
V = Span Gas Concentration ÷ Transmitter Range
As an example, if the calibration gas is 3 ppm and the Sensor/Transmitter range
is 0 to 5 ppm, the voltage should be adjusted to 3 ÷ 5 = 0.6V.

If the receiver was placed in the “inhibit” mode prior to calibration, press the
pushbutton switch on the receiver to return the system to normal operation.
4.5.3
Range Adjustment (See Dwg. 50.130.150.001)
Sensor/Transmitters are factory calibrated at the Standard Ranges as listed
in Section 1.1 – Technical Data, but can be changed within the limits listed in
that Section.
The range can be changed by first setting the range configuration switches, C1
to C4, in the Receiver Module as described in paragraph 3.2, Receiver Module
Operation. The transmitter span must then be adjusted as described above.

Troubleshooting
Trouble
Receiver LEDs and indicators do not
light when power is applied to the
system.
Remedy
1. Check the fuse. If the fuse is blown, replace the fuse. If not, go
to step 2.
2. Check wiring from the Power Supply Module to the Receiver
Module (see Dwgs. 50.130.130.001 and 50.130.130.002). Be
sure polarity is correct. If wiring is correct, go to step 3.
3. With a voltmeter, check the power supply at the “+12” terminal (positive) and “C” terminal (negative) on the Receiver. If
the reading is between 13.6 to 13.9 Vdc, replace the Receiver.
If the voltage is above 13.9 V, go to step 5. If the voltage is
below 13.6 V, go to step 4.
4. Measure the ac input voltage at the Power Supply Module.
If the voltage is not within the rated range (see Section 1.1 Technical Data), check ac supply. If the voltage is within the
rated range, replace the Power Supply Module.
5. If the voltage measured in step 3 is above 13.9 V, connect
another Receiver Module or a resistive load of approximately
100 ohm and 2 watts to the Power Supply output terminals. If
the voltage drops to within 13.6 - 13.9 V, replace the Receiver.
If not, replace the Power Supply Module.
Receiver module powers up correctly, 1. Disconnect the Transmitter connections at the two “TR” termibut does not respond when test gas
nals of the Receiver. Check the voltage on the terminals with
is applied to sensor/transmitter.
a voltmeter. The voltage should be approximately 12 Vdc. If
this voltage is not present, replace the Receiver Module. If it is
measured, go to step 2.
2. Connect a milliamp meter between the two “TR” terminals
of the Receiver. The current should be 15 to 25 mA. If this
current is not measured, replace the Receiver Module. If it is
measured, refer to the Sensor/Transmitter paragraphs in this
Section.
