HEALTH AND SAFETY
1.
The equipment is not weatherproof and should not be used outside in rain or snow.
2.
The internal circuits and components of the analyser should not be tampered with. No
internal parts are operator serviceable.
3.
Operators should exercise due caution with regard to the engine fan and associated
belts.
4.
Always provide ventilation by using an exhaust gas extraction system or by having an
adequate supply of fresh air.
Vehicle emissions are dangerous. In particular, Carbon Monoxide
(CO) from a vehicle exhaust is a highly poisonous gas. If breathed
in, it is absorbed by the blood and will result in greatly slowed
reactions and if absorbed in sufficient quantity can be fatal.
Published figures show that a concentration of 0.3% CO in the air
can be fatal if inhaled for 30 minutes.
5.
Before starting an engine, ensure that the gear selector is in neutral or park.
6.
Care should be taken with regard to scalding from the cooling system, burns from the
exhaust system and electric shocks from the ignition HT system.
7.
When disconnecting the fuel system of a hot engine beware of the fire hazard caused by
fuel spilling onto manifolds, ignition distributor, etc.
8.
Position the mains cable and sample pipe in such a manner that they do not present a
hazard to anyone.
9.
The earth lead of the mains supply cable MUST ALWAYS be connected to a good earth
point.
10.
Operators should not allow themselves to come into contact with water or other similar
conductors when using the equipment.
11.
Equipment should be sited in an area designated and clearly marked:

Sampling pipe DX210-5C
The sampling pipe DX210-5C has remote control and is used to access mid-chassis exhausts on
large commercial vehicles. To use, hold the sampling pipe and the sampling head as shown in
the illustration with the arm rest under the forearm. The head of the pipe has a pivoting action
so that the 'aim' of the pipe can be changed by moving one arm forwards or backwards relative
to the other arm.
Use the hand lever to operate the jaws and clamp the pipe in position, then allow the remote
control and the sampling head to rest on the floor.
NOTE:
Before fitment of a sampling pipe, inspect its 'O' ring for damage and renew if
necessary (order part number DX210-5/60).
Periodically apply a smear of grease to the 'O' ring to assist fitment of the
sampling pipe to the sampling head.
CAUTION:
The results of free acceleration testing will be affected by changes in
sampling pipe diameter and/or length. Only genuine pipes must be used
and their design must not be altered in any way.
The smokehead body must always be positioned in clean air and away
from exhaust fumes when in use.
WARNING:
Sampling pipes can get very hot; take care when disconnecting from the
sampling head.
USING THE SMOKEHEAD OUTSIDE
If it is necessary or desirable to test a vehicle outside the workshop, the following points must
be borne in mind.
The sampling head is weather resistant and may be used in temperatures down to a minimum
of -15ºC. But in the case of severe weather and heavy rain – DO NOT USE OUTSIDE!
WARNING:
!
The power supply and PC are not weather protected and for the safety of both the
operator and the equipment, these parts MUST be kept under cover in inclement
weather conditions.

OPERATION
WARMING-UP
Switch on power to the base unit. The ‘Power On’ light will illuminate.
There is a warm-up time of 5 to 15 minutes dependent on the outside temperature. During this
time the Smokemeter will not function.
NOTE:
For details of software controlled procedures, refer to the appropriate software
manual.
WIRELESS SMOKEHEAD OPERATION (DX260-1BT)
For wireless systems the operation of the equipment is identical to the cabled systems but a
wireless Smokehead (DX260-1BT) is utilised.
Blue flashing LED indicates
battery charging operation
When the equipment is first
switched on the smokehead should
be firmly positioned onto its
charging base and the unit should
be allowed to charge for a minimum
of five to six hours (or preferably
left overnight) to fully charge the
batteries.
The equipment screen will prompt
the user to return the smokehead to
its charging base between tests.
This must be obeyed in order to
proceed further. Failure to return
the smokehead to its base will
result in a depletion of the battery
charge. The test will not continue
until the smokehead has been
returned.
Ensure the Smokehead
is firmly positioned on
its charger base

BATTERY CHARGING – Care, Modes & Endurance:
The DX260-1BT wireless Smokehead contains a Multi-Cell Rechargeable Battery designed to
give a maximum of 1.5 hours endurance from a full charge.
The Smokehead must always be replaced on the charging cradle in between tests.
To recharge, the Smokehead must be returned to and correctly located on its charging cradle.
This will maximise the battery endurance and is also necessary for test results to be printed.
On the handle of the Smokehead is a highly visible Blue Light emitting Diode (LED). This LED
gives indication of the status of the Smokehead whether or not it is on its charging Cradle.
The nominal endurance of the internal Battery pack is 1.5 hours continuous use from a full
charge and cold start. This will vary according to ambient temperature. For optimum use and
battery life, the smokehead should be removed from the charging cradle for the minimum
amount of time and returned to the charger immediately after testing or as prompted by the
smoke test Software.
The rate of charging is dependant on a combination of Battery Voltage and Battery
Temperature. If the Smokehead has seen reasonable use the charger will switch to ‘Fast
Charge’, taking approximately 1.5 hours to fully recharge. Once full terminal Voltage has been
reached, the battery charging rate is reduced to ‘Trickle Charge’. When charging for a protracted
period, for example overnight, a trickle charge of 15 hours will completely recharge the internal
battery. A blue LED on the Handle indicates the Charging Status.
It is strongly advised that the Charger Cradle be left permanently switched ON with the
Smokehead in situ overnight to ensure full operational usage at beginning of the working day.
It is also strongly recommended that the batteries be completely discharged on a
monthly basis by setting the program to Live Readings with the smokehead off the
charger. This could be done at the end of the working day.
Please note that rechargeable batteries have a finite lifespan, therefore the battery pack will
need to be replaced periodically if the smokehead is no longer sustaining sufficient charge for
correct operation. Please contact a Product Support for battery replacement information.
LED Indication
1. Smokehead removed from Charging Cradle:
LED ‘On’ continuously: Smokehead is running on internal Battery.
LED pulsing ‘ON’ for 2 seconds, ‘OFF’ for 0.5 seconds: Smokehead battery has reached a
Low Voltage condition, and has less than 10 minutes life left before Auto-shutdown.
LED ‘OFF’: Low Voltage condition. Smokehead will Auto Shut down. No more testing possible
until Smokehead battery has been recharged.
If the Smokehead has received no Communication from Host Computer for over 6 minutes it will
go into ‘Sleep’ Mode. Return the Smokehead to the Charging Unit to invoke a response.
If the Smokehead is taken outside its maximum operating range of about 100 metres, and
wireless communication is no longer possible, after 6 minutes the Smokehead will go into ‘Sleep’
mode.
To recover from ‘Sleep’ mode, the Smokehead should be put back in its Charging Cradle, and
the LED function observed.

2. Smokehead returned to Charging Cradle:
FAST CHARGE (2.5 flashes per second):
The Smokehead is in ‘Fast Charge’ Mode. The battery should fully charge within 1.5 hours.
TOP-UP CHARGE (1 flash per second):
The Fast Charge cycle has completed and the battery is being brought to full charge.
SLOW CHARGE (1 flash every 2 seconds):
The Smokehead battery is in ‘Slow Charge’ mode, the charging rate determined by either
Terminal Voltage or, Battery Cell temperature.
TRICKLE CHARGE (1 flash every 3 seconds):
LED Flashing ON/OFF shows the Smokehead battery is in ‘Trickle-Charge’ mode indicating that
the batteries are fully charged.
Fault Diagnosis:
FAST FLICKER (8 flashes per second or more):
The smokehead has detected poor charging contacts. Clean the contacts on both the cradle and
the smokehead feet and replace on charger.
LED NOT ILLUMINATED:
Return the Smokehead to Charging Cradle. LED should display according to Charging level
required.
LED NOT ILLUMINATED WHEN SMOKEHEAD IS ON CHARGING CRADLE:
Check that the Smokehead is correctly seated on the charging Cradle. The Smokehead has twin
connectors on each insulated foot, and may be connected either way round.
Check the Charging Cradle is connected to the 240 V AC Mains.
Check that the sprung connectors that transmit the Charging Current on the Charging Cradle
are clean and not stuck in a depressed condition.
Check that the Charging Connectors on the insulated mounts on underside of the Smokehead
are clean and free of dirt and obstructions.
To check the charging Voltage at the Charging Cradle: Connect a Digital Multimeter set to
measure up to 30V DC to the two charging Connectors on the charging Cradle, and depress the
Central Charging Switch. A Voltage of 28 V to 30 V DC should register on the Multimeter
Display.
The internal battery pack has a finite lifespan and will need to be replaced periodically. This
should be carried out by a qualified Service Engineer.
There are no user serviceable parts in the Smokehead.

CLEANING SAMPLING PIPES
Under normal circumstances the sampling head does not require cleaning. If a sampling pipe
becomes restricted with deposits, the test results can be affected.
To clean a sampling pipe, remove the sample probe from the smokehead. Blow through the
sample pipe only, using compressed air. DO NOT BLOW THROUGH THE SMOKEHEAD.
WARNING:
Wear eye protection and provide a suitable container to
catch the soot that will be blown out from Sample Pipe.
DO NOT use compressed air on the Smokehead body.

USING THE ENGINE TACHOMETERS
Ensure the vehicle engine is switched off before connecting engine speed adapters to the
vehicle. The following types of engine speed adapter are available:
ACOUSTIC TACHOMETER CDSS1
Acoustic sensor type for Petrol and Diesel engines
This adapter measures the noise and vibration of an engine, and converts this information to
engine speed.
Note: The CDSS1 connects to the host equipment via a signal interface cable (AS09133). This
cable can also carry the power supply for the CDSS1 from the AS09185 Tacho Adapter (the
CDSS1 12v external power supply can be connected to either the AS09185 Tacho Adapter or
CDSS1).
The engine speed signals produced are equivalent to a conventional ignition system (i.e. one
pulse per engine cycle). When defining the ignition system on the host analyser, It is therefore
imperative that a conventional system is selected, irrespective of that fitted to the vehicle.
Selecting DIS (Distributor-less Ignition System) for example will result in the readings being
divided by 2.

Suggested mounting Positions for the sensor (CDSS1)
The sensor has a powerful magnetic base and should therefore be attached to an iron or steel
part of the engine, such as a bolt or lifting bracket. Always ensure that the Sensor is attached to
the Engine itself and not to a part of the vehicle where the vibrations may be cushioned by the
engine mountings e.g. wing or bulkhead.
Examples of good mounting positions are: Lifting brackets, Cylinder head bolts (where they are
accessible), Oil drain plug etc.
CDSS1 Operation
Prior to starting the vehicle attach the magnetic sensor to a part of the engine. The LED on the
sensor should be RED
1. Switch engine OFF.
Red
Attach Sensor to a suitable point as described in ‘Suggested mounting positions’.
The Status LED should be red.
2. Start Engine and allow to idle.
Yellow
After approx 3 – 10 seconds the status LED will change to Yellow.
3. Rev Engine to high speed (2000 – 6000 rpm) and hold.
Note: In the case of a Diesel this may be 70 – 90% of Governor.
Green
Hold Engine speed until yellow status LED changes to Green. This should take a maximum of 5
seconds. If the status LED does not change, try another mounting position.

CDSS6/CDSS6BT RPM Operation
Ensure the CDSS6 is connected to the host PC via the DX230-261 Comms lead (Not required on
CDSS6BT).
Before starting the vehicle, attach the crocodile clips on CDSS6 power/sensing cable to battery
terminals, ensuring that the polarity is correct.
Start engine, switch on vehicle lights and allow to idle.
The unit will search for a steady speed each time it is powered up, if the engine speed falls or
the engine type is changed. This is the initialisation period and may last up to 17 seconds.
During this time, the status LED will flash slowly and the rpm will read zero.
Once the speed has been detected, readings will appear on the host analyser. The CDSS6
updates 10 readings per second.
Note:
Please note that on a small number of vehicles the readings may be unstable, inaccurate or
unreadable. To minimise the risk of this:Load the battery as much as possible by doing the following:
Switch on the vehicle headlights/Main beam/Fog/Spots,
Switch on the heated rear window,
However - Switch off the cabin fan as this can introduce interference.
Keep the engine speed stable during the initialisation time <17Sec.
If, after initialisation the speed is stable but reading incorrectly, change the cylinder setting on the
‘Tacho Set-up’ screen until the correct value appears.
