SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Before carrying out measurements with the CCM device, we kindly request that you read the instructions precisely. There is no risk of an accident when using the CCM devices if the instructions are
followed precisely. Therefore, please observe the following operating instructions:
The CCM device may be used only in accordance with the operating instructions.
The pressure in the CCM pressure bottle results from the formation of acetylene. An
explosive air/acetylene mixture is rapidly formed. If this gas mixture is ignited during
a measurement due to the generation of sparks, this will result in the destruction of
the manometer as well as the loss of the measurement results.
The escaping gas is combustible:
a) Do not open the CCM pressure bottle in closed rooms.
b) Do not smoke and do not work near to open flames or electrical installations.
c) If a fire develops, smother it with sand or with a blanket; do not extinguish with water!
Following a measurement, hold the CCM pressure bottle pointing away from your
face, open it and allow the gas to escape slowly (you will have fewer problems with
the manometer as a result, since its mechanism is subjected to less stress).
As a matter of principle you should not use samples with more than 1.5 g water. Acetylene can
decompose at a pressure of 1.5 bar or more (equivalent to 1.5 g water). This rapid process of decomposition can lead to damage to the manometer.
Perform measurements on the CCM device using only the materials intended. For other materials we
kindly request you to send us a sample together with a description so that we can advise you. We
will be only too pleased to support you.
FIRST AID MEASUR ES

OPERATION OF BUSINESS MANOMETER
Upgrade kit Business
The digital Business manometer is mounted on a damped cover
in accordance with the directive EN 837-2. It is designed as standard for weighed samples of 10, 20, 50 and 100 g. With its large
pressure range of up to 3 bar it is very well protected against
overpressure. In additionally the manometer is equipped with a
rubber protection cap, which protects it against external dirt and
moisture. A printer or a measured value recording program can
optionally be connected to the data output (right).
Operation of the manometer
The manometer is operated by two operating elements: the
‘Menu’ and ‘Enter’ keys.
After switching on via one of the two buttons, the manometer
displays the last measured value. The duration of the last measurement is displayed by pressing the ‘Enter’ key.
In order to move through the manometer menu commands,
there are three operating variants at each point:
1) Doing nothing:
2) Press the ‘Menu’ key:
3) Press the ‘Enter’ key:
A displayed command is displayed for 7 seconds. If no
further key is pressed during this
period the manometer returns to
its starting position.
The next command that is possible from this position is displayed.
The displayed command is confirmed and thus executed.
Further fundamental information:
When a measurement is running, 3 ticks flash at the bottomleft edge of the screen. In this phase the unit of the displayed
measured value cannot be changed.
The duration of the measurement is usually 10 minutes. A running measurement can be terminated prematurely by the STOP
command.
The last measured value remains in memory even after a battery
change. If no button is pressed for a period of 60 minutes, the
manometer switches itself off automatically.
9
OPERATION OF BUSINESS MANOMETER
After confirmation of the Start command by pressing the ‘Enter’ key:
The manometer switches to measuring mode and sets the zero point at the currently prevailing
ambient pressure. It now waits 5 minutes for the start of the reaction. If a pressure increase is detected during this time, the definitive measuring cycle begins. If no pressure increase is determined, the
manometer returns to its starting position.
The manometer can be prematurely reset to the starting position by selecting the STOP command
with the ‘Menu’ button and confirming with the ‘Enter’ key.
After confirmation of the OFF command with the ‘Enter’ key, the manometer is switched off.
After confirmation of the Print command with the ‘Enter’ key, the manometer sends the stored
measurement data via the interface (metal cover) to the log printer (log printer retrofit kit art. no.
110024).
After confirmation of the Unit command with the ‘Enter’ key, the manometer outputs the measured value as pressure [bar] or as moisture content [% by weight]. The moisture content
units [% by weight] refer to a sample quantity: 100 g, 50 g, 20 g or 10 g (according to the
tick at the upper edge of the display).
Measurements with the Business manometer:
The Business manometer is designed in such a manner that it retains the last measured value until
a new measurement has definitely begun.
In order to start a new measurement, the manometer is switched on by pressing any button. The
sample weight is adapted if necessary. This step can also take place following the measurement.
The manometer is ‘zeroed’ and prepared for a new measurement by selecting and confirming the
‘Start’ command. On the display you can see a timer which counts down from 5:00 minutes and the
current relative pressure is displayed every 5 seconds.
In this condition the manometer is ready for the measurement and can be used like a mechanical
manometer. In order to abort the definitive start of the measurement at this point, the ‘STOP’ command must selected with the ‘Menu’ button or the timer must be allowed to run down without an
increase in the pressure.
In this condition the manometer constantly checks whether the pressure is increasing and automatically sets the time to ‘0:00’ if a pressure increase of 20 mbar is determined. At this moment a new
measurement has definitely begun. The maximum duration of the measurement is 10 minutes and
can be terminated prematurely with the ‘STOP’ command.
Finally: Further information and videos can be found on our website.
10 BATTERY REPLACEMENT – BUSINESS MANOMETER
BATTERY REPLACEMENT – BUSINESS MANOMETER
In principle the battery can be used for several hundred measurements. Power consumption during the measurement is very
small. Most power is consumed when sending the data packets
to the log printer.
The automatic power-off of the manometer after 60 minutes
without pressing a button prolongs the life span of the battery.
If the battery power is low, this is indicated on the left-hand side
of the display by a battery symbol. We recommend that you
replace the battery at the earliest convenience.
To do this, the interface cover must be unscrewed and the
rubber cap removed.
The front side of the display can be removed from the top side
(ideally with the help of a coin).
Remove the old battery by lifting it out of the holder with the
fingernails of both index fingers. When doing this the thumbs
touch the black clip points on the opposite sides of the red circle.
Insert the new battery such that the two contacts on one
side lead around the battery (red circle).
Assemble the device again in the reverse order, ensuring that the
rubber sealing ring lies on the top edge of the front part so that
the part lies tight against the manometer housing when closed.

INSERTING THE BATTERY
Before the first use the Li-ion battery must be inserted in the correct way so that the contacts match. Follow the adjacent picture
sequence for this. Place the battery on the two contacts with the
labelling on the inside and press it down to engage it.
The battery must first be completely charged so that it can reach
its maximum capacity. Use the charger supplied for this. The connection is located on the right-hand side of the printer. A charging
cycle usually takes 2 to 4 hours. The printer indicates the completion of the charging procedure by the steady lighting of the blue
LED. During the charging procedure the blue LED flashes rapidly.
INSERTING PAPER
The printer does not have to be switched on in order to replace
the paper roll. If the paper roll is empty, both LEDs flash rapidly at
the same time. The transparent plastic cover must first be opened
in order to replace the paper roll. This must be laterally squeezed
together between the thumb and index fingers. The other hand
holds the printer tight while doing this.
13 OPERATION OF THE LOG PRINTER
The transparent cover must then be hinged upwards and the
empty shell removed. The new paper roll must be unrolled a little
and inserted as shown in the adjacent picture. Ensure when doing
this that the paper is inserted straight.
The transparent cover must be carefully hinged down again and
ideally pressed down with two fingers along the outside edges.
The excess paper can be torn off diagonally while holding the
printer with your hand.
As soon as the paper roll has been correctly inserted and the
cover has been properly closed, the blue LED goes off and the
printer is ready to print again.
BASIC FUNCTIONS
SWITCHING ON: The printer is switched on by pressing the
POWER button for a longer period. A beep tone sounds and the
red LED lights up. The printer is now ready to print.
STANDBY: If no button is pressed or if no log is printed for a
period of two minutes since the last printout or after switching the
printer on, the printer automatically switches to standby mode
to save power. This way it can be used for up to 14 days if the
battery was originally fully charged.
SWITCHING OFF: To switch the printer off, the POWER button
is once again pressed for a longer period. The printer beeps twice
when switching off.
PAPER FEED: The paper is fed continuously by pressing the
FEED button. The paper feed stops only after releasing the
FEED button.
LOW BATTERY CHARGE: When the Li-ion batteries lose
power, the blue LED begins to flash slowly and a double beep
tone sounds. If the batteries are not charged immediately, a
repetitive beep tone sounds to draw your attention to the low
battery charge.
The connector for the battery charger is located on the right-hand
side of the printer. The blue LED flashes during the charging
procedure and lights steadily as soon as the charging procedure
is completed. A full charging cycle takes between 2 and 4 hours.
The printer can be operated normally during the charging procedure.
14 LOG PRINTOUT
LOG PRINTOUT AFTER A CM MEASUREMENT
After each completed measurement, any number of logs can
be printed out for this measurement. The respective last measurement remains stored until a new one has definitely begun.
The cable cover must be removed with the manometer switched on (fig. 1).
Subsequently, the printer cable is seated correctly by rotating the plug (2-pin end with rotatable metal screw connection) and screwing it on lightly (fig. 2).
The printer is switched on by pressing the POWER button for
a longer period. This is indicated by a beep tone and the red LED
lighting up (fig. 3).
The other end of the printer cable (6-pin plug with arrow) is
plugged into the left-hand side of the printer with the arrow at
the top. The other hand holds the printer tight while doing this
(fig. 4).
On the manometer the Print command is selected by pressing
the Menu button three times and confirming within 7 seconds by
pressing the Enter key (figs. 5 and 6).
This starts the flow of data and the log is printed out (fig. 7).
The log printout can be torn off the roll diagonally. The other
hand holds the printer tight while doing this. (fig. 8).
In order to print several logs, the procedures starting from fig. 5
are repeated according to the number of desired logs.
INFORMATION PRINTED OUT ON THE LOG
Apart from the measuring data determined, the CM measuring log
also supplies the following relevant information.
The log printout can be adapted in the factory to suit the
customer’s wishes and can be individualised with logo (stored
in the printer) and company address.
15 LOG PRINTOUT
An individual log number is assigned to each measurement.
The number repeats itself only after 10,000 measurements.
Coupled with the serial number of the manometer, this results in
a unique certificate for a completed measurement.
In addition to the final pressure result after a maximum
measuring period of 10 minutes (factory setting), intermediate
values are also stored during the measurement which, over the
course of the measurement, can supply additional information on
the sample material examined.
If a measurement is manually ended before the 10 minutes have
elapsed, the pressure data of the intermediate times are given as
‘0.00’ after the end of the measurement duration. (See adjacent
log).
In addition to the pressure, the pressure sensor also measures the temperature in order to improve the accuracy of the
measured pressure signal. These temperatures are measured at
the start and end of each measurement and are also printed out.
Therefore, they also supply information about the temperature
range during the measurement.
In the result field the final pressure is directly converted into
moisture content [% by weight] for the usual sample
weights of 10, 20, 50 and 100 g. In this conversion it is
assumed that the temperature at the start and end of the measurement was constantly 20 °C (i.e. the reference temperature).
FURTHER HANDWRITTEN ADDITIONS
Additional data is recorded on the respective log printouts by
means of handwritten additions:
Place of measurement / sample material / signature
fields / externally acquired measured values such as thickness
and temperature of the floor / humidity and temperature of the air as well as the equilibrium moisture and
temperature CCM HYGRO COMBI (combined equilibrium
moisture measurement of an arbitrary material sample
upstream of the carbide method).
Detailed information on this combined moisture testing method is
available to you on our website.
