Chapter 3 | Installation and connection
Installing the detectors
Layout
While the measuring sensor is always located on the underside of the detector, several
factors determine where the detector should be located:
■
If the gas being measured is lighter than the air, place the detector near the ceiling.
■
If the gas is heavier than the air (CO2 and Freons, for example) place the detector
close to the floor.
■
Near offtake points.
■
Generally, in locations where gas may accumulate, taking into consideration both:
- The effects of temperature;
- The outside winds direction.
Determining the best sensor location
Factors to consider when determining the best placement for the detector are:
■
Potential sources for vapor and gas emissions.
■
Characteristics of gases and vapors (density).
■
Air circulation:
- Inside: mechanical or natural ventilation.
- Outside: wind direction and velocity.
■
Effects of temperature.
■
Local constraints (air flow, water splash, etc.).
Detectors should always be located in an easily accessible location for maintenance
purposes.
Special accessories may be necessary to protect the equipment against any liquid
projectiles, dust, direct sunlight or low temperatures in the area.

For CTX 300 sensors, the 4-20 mA output current is proportional to the gas level.
Notes:
The various states of the 4-20 mA output are:
■
1.5 mA to indicate an electronic fault.
■
1.8 mA to indicate an absence of sensor.
■
Between 4 and 20 mA for measurement values.
■
≥ 20 mA if levels exceed measurement range.

Chapter 5 | Maintenance
The adjustment operations in this paragraph are reserved for authorized,
trained personnel because they may compromise detection reliability .
Gas detectors are safety devices. OLDHAM recommends the regular testing of fixed
gas detection installations. This type of test consists of injecting the calibration gas into
the detector at a sufficient concentration to activate the pre-set alarms. It is to be
understood that this test is in no way a replacement for a detector calibration.
The frequency of gas tests depends on the industrial application where the detector is
in use. Frequent inspections should be made in the months following the
commissioning of the installation, and should then become more widely spaced
provided that no significant deviation is observed. If a detector should fail to react in
contact with the gas, calibration is essential. The frequency of calibrations shall be
appropriate according to the results of the tests (humidity, temperature, dust, etc.);
however, it must not exceed one year.
The general manager should put safety procedures in place on-site. OLDHAM cannot
be held responsible for their enforcement.
Calibration
Recommendations
Calibration consists of adjusting the zero of the clean air sensor and adjusting
sensitivity with a test gas. Adjustments are made at the sensor level.
Equipment needed to calibrate the detector correctly:
■
Flexible plastic tubing (Figure 14, ref. 2).
■
Manometer and regulator valve for the compressed gas cylinders (rep. 3).
■
0 to 60 l/h flow meter (if the cylinder is not equipped with one).
■
Calibration pipe (ref. 1), which may vary depending on the nature of the gas (see
pages 25 and following).
■
Test gas cylinder (ref. 4).
18
CTX 300
User manual
Figure 14: sensor calibration assembly.
Zero adjustment should be performed in a gas and vapor free area. If this is not
possible, synthetic bottled air can be injected at a rate of 60 l/h.
Use a bottle of test gas to adjust sensor sensitivity (concentration close to the alarm
threshold or corresponding to 30% of the measurement range at a minimum). The
recommended rate is 60 l/h.
Note: when dealing with dangerous gases, you MUST consult a specialized Oldham
technician or use another sensor pack recently pre-calibrated at a factory.
The detector should be calibrated using the intended flow-rate. The actual
concentration of gas may be underestimated if the detector was calibrated
with too high of a flow rate.

Checking the current generator
Although this setting is made in the factory, it is possible that the transmitter and
controller may have to be matched. In this case, proceed as follows:
■
Connect a voltmeter to the AF+ and
AF- terminals (caliber mV/DC)
(Figure 19).
■
Verify that the sensor is located in a
clean-air environment. If not, inject
synthetic air at a flow rate of 60 l/h.

■

Wait for the measurement to
stabilize (displayed on screen) and
adjust the zero by using the ZERO
potentiometer located on the
sensor pack (Figure 20, ref. 2).
■
The instrument then sends a 4 mA
signal down the line. Connect a
voltmeter to the VI+ and VIterminals (caliber mV/DC). The
multimeter displays 400 mV
■
If some different value is displayed,
adjust P1 (Figure 21, rep. 1).
■
adjustment is complete.

23
Replacing a sensor
Sensors must be replaced:
■
When calibration is no longer possible (no sensitivity);
■
During preventative maintenance.
The replacement sensor should be identical to the original sensor (same gas, same
range). After a sensor has been replaced, a calibration or test (for pre-calibrated
sensors) must be conducted.
Disposal
For the preservation, protection and improvement of environmental
quality, and for the protection of human health and the prudent and
rational utilization of natural resources, the CTX 300 must be disposed of
separately from electronic equipment and cannot be disposed of with
normal household waste. The user therefore has an obligation to separate
the CTX 300 sensor from other waste to ensure that it is recycled safely
for the environment. For further details on existing collection sites, contact
the local administration or seller of the product.
