INTRODUCTION
This RADEX MONITOR MODEL 08-200 is designed to monitor breathing air for
carbon monoxide contamination from a compressed air source. Compressed Air is
supplied to the unit through the sampling hose where the air flows through a preset
pressure regulator and a fixed orifice flow restrictor. This system delivers a
continuous flow of compressed air into the sensor chamber. The monitor
continuously analyses the air and displays a CO reading in ppm and the
temperature of the compressed air.
To provide added protection the Radex CO monitor provides traceability via PC, this
feature provides users with the ability to review data which has been recorded and
stored. The traceability feature provides information on CO levels, temperature,
alarms, calibration and date and time. The unit is also equipped with an anti tamper
device which is activated if the monitor unit is disassembled.
The unit is housed in a robust protective case which can be carried or mounted
either on a Radex Airline Filter or on a wall. All system lights and alarms are located
on the outside of the protective case. An External power outlet is located on the
outside of the protective case this can provide power to an external alarm, strobe
warning light or solenoid. The monitor must be supplied with Grade-D air and must
be free of oil and water to prevent contamination of the sensor.
The monitor is designed to operate at 12 volts DC and can be used with either the
110/240v – 12v power adaptor (p/n: 08-221) or the 12v cable with Battery Clips
(p/n: 08-227). The unit is designed to operate in temperature ranges -10 to +60 C
and Humidity levels of 5% - 99% (no condensation).
The Radex Carbon Monoxide Monitor satisfies the requirements of OSHA rule
29CFR 1910.134 (d) (2) (ii) for carbon monoxide monitoring.
RPB Respiratory provides a complete calibration and maintenance service through
its service centers. In some locations RPB has units available for rental while your
unit is being serviced.

If you are using an external alarm device,
connect the plug of the device to the
external power outlet. The external alarms
should be located close to the work area so
they can be seen and heard by operators.
If you choose to organize your own external
alarm device you are recommended to use
a qualified Electrician. To actuate external
devices with a relay, the relay coil should be
connected between pin 3 main power) and
pin 4 (alarm). The relay should be a 12v
DC, low power type.
OPERATION
The Radex CO monitor has four modes of operation.
1.
OPERATING, where data is logged and alarms are triggered by excess CO, low
power and faults.
2.
SETUP, which is entered by pressing the SETUP button.
3.
DATA RETRIEVAL, which is only possible when the unit is connected to a PC and a
connection is opened.
4.
CALIBRATION CHECK, this mode is used to perform monthly calibration checks on
the unit.
When the Radex CO Monitor is switched on, you should always watch the display to
ensure correct operation, it will display the serial number and software version then it
performs a self diagnostic test. Should there be a fault during the self diagnostic test
the screen will display a phone number and email address for you to contact a
service center.
Once the Radex CO monitor has completed its start up procedure, the unit will enter
operating mode and show one of three screens pictured below, depending on the
status of the alarm.
ALARM MODES
The alarm will sound if the CO concentration rises to or above 10ppm according to
USA, European, Australian regulations (5ppm for Canadian Regulations). The alarm
can be silenced for 30 seconds by pressing OK (snooze mode). If after 30 seconds
the gas concentration is still above the threshold, the alarm will sound again.
8
If the gas concentration rises by more than 2ppm while the alarm is silenced, the
alarm will sound, regardless of timeout. The user can again silence the alarm;
however, it will be subject to the 30 second timeout. All alarms and snooze modes
are recorded by the data logger built into the unit.
If the unit is operating on mains power supply, and the mains supply is
disconnected, a short warning beep will be sounded; this will alert the user to the
loss of mains power.
If the unit is operating on batteries, and the battery voltage falls below a set
threshold, then a more insistent warning will be sounded, (“beep-beep-beep” pause
“beep-beep-beep” pause “beep-beep-beep”). If the alarm is already sounding, the
patterns are inverted:
SELF TEST FAILURE
The unit goes through the self-test and shows the success or failure of each test.
If certain parts of the self-test fail, the unit will not proceed to operational mode, and
will display a service phone number and service email address. Operation will be
inhibited until a self-test passes, this ensures safe operation at all times as Carbon
Monoxide is odorless and can cause serious injury or death.
The unit will display days left until recalibration is necessary (every 180 days) and
days left before sensor replacement is necessary (24 months).
FAULTS THAT INHIBIT OPERATION
•
Data Flash Memory failure
•
Calibration Due (The operator can accept responsibility to override by pressing OK).
•
