Model OS-3
4.7 mm (3/16”) dia.
73mm ( 2 7/8”) centers.
The model OS-3 acts like a thermostat to control ozone generators and alarms based on an
adjustable ozone set-point. The standard available range is 0-10 ppm. The design incorporates
hysteresis or a “dead band” to avoid system “chatter.” The SPDT relay contacts will handle up
to 5 amps at 250 volts or up to a 1/8 HP motor. The OS-3 should not be used in the presence
of acid gases, strong VOC’s, or strong halogen fumes.
The instrument is conditionally warranted for one year. Save a copy of your purchase document
as a proof of purchase and date, and read the warranty statement at the and of this manual.
Precalibrated sensor module SM-10.
Plugs into 1 meter cable from the OS-3.
First, verify that the instrument is working as received. Connect your AC adapter to the power
jack or your 12-24 V DC supply to terminals 4 and 5 of terminal block TB1 found on the inside
back of the instrument. Caution!: Many AC adapters and DC supplies deliver a higher voltage
than on the nameplate - “24 volts” can be 32 volts, etc. Verify that the voltage to the input does
not exceed 24 volts and that it is not AC. In either case, major damage to the instrument can
The sensor must be conditioned to burn off chemicals it may have absorbed during shipping
and storage before it develops full ozone sensitivity.
Allow 1-8 hours warm-up before attempting to test the instrument and at least 24 hours
before using the instrument.
It is recommended to test the instrument for positive response with an ozone generator when
the instrument is received and again at the site where the instrument is installed. Eco Sensors,
Inc. offers an inexpensive battery-operated, hand-held ozone generator for this test purpose,
the Model OG-1.
Adjust the set-point if required. It should not be set below .5 ppm. A data logger can be
connected to TB1 terminals 1 and 2. The output will be 0-2 volts. Voltage readings are directly
proportional to the ozone concentration on a scale of 1 volt = 10 ppm.
You can now connect the Ozone Switch(tm) to external devices such as an ozonator to be
controlled or an alarm circuit. Disconnect the power to the generator control wiring and the
DC power to the instrument while connecting the wiring. Bring the external wiring through the
bottom access hole of the instrument or drill the access holes as required. Wire generator
control circuits only to terminals 2 and 3 of the terminal block TB2. Do not leave oils, solvents,
or greases on, In, or near the Instrument. Their fumes, however, minor, can cancel the
instrument’s ozone responsiveness.
The Ozone Switch(tm) is shipped from the factory calibrated to detect at 10 ppm. Lower
values than that are settable by the calibrated control found by opening the back cover. The
calibration should be within 20% from .50-10 ppm. We do not recommend operating with a
set-point for detection below .50 ppm. The calibration will be affected by greases, oils, solvents
and other VOC generators in the area (sensitivity will appear to be reduced), or by extremes
of temperature and humidity by oxidizing chemicals such as acid gases (sensitivity will appear
to be increased). Note that the instrument should be recalibrated after changing the sensor
and at least annually. Rough- check of the instrument’s functionality should be made every
three months by presenting it with ozone and verifying that It detects.
Do not attempt to do board-level repairs yourself. This will void the warranty.
SENSOR - The ozone sensor is incorporated into a precalibrated module, part no. SM-10.
This plugs into the cable from the OS-3. In the event of a sensor failure or deviation from
correct calibration, the senor module should be replaced rather than trying to repair or
recalibrate it.
AC POWER ADAPTERS - The Ozone Switch(tm) will not operate properly if it is not receiving
12-24 V DC at 200 mA. Check your power supply circuit or AC adapter to ascertain that it is
“on” and is supplying the correct power. AC adapters can burn out during lightening strikes or
other electrical surges, but this is very unlikely that the Ozone Switch(tm) will completely fail
during such surges due to its extensive input power protection circuity. Eco Sensors can
supply AC adapter for North America. Elsewhere, AC adapters should be purchased through
our distributors or locally using specifications found on the Eco Sensors website

• Allow at least 1-4 hours warm-up for functionality testing and 24 hours warm-up for
operational use.
• Read all the instructions in this manual.
• Keep the instrument dry. Never let water or other liquids into the sensor.
• Do not drop the instrument or subject it to continuous vibration.
• Do not store or operate the instrument in high levels of dust.
• When operating at lower temperatures or high humidity, such as warehouses or refrigerated
