How to Use This Manual
The SUREFLOW™ monitor Operation and Service Manual is divided into two parts. Part one
describes how the SUREFLOW™ unit functions and how to interface with the device. This section
should be read by users, facilities staff, and anyone who requires a basic understanding of how the
SUREFLOW™ monitor operates.
Part two describes the technical aspects of the product which includes operation, calibration,
configuration, maintenance, and troubleshooting. Part two should be read by personnel
programming or maintaining the unit. TSI recommends thoroughly reading this manual before
changing any software items.
NOTE: This operation and service manual assumes proper SUREFLOW™ monitor installation.
Refer to the Installation Instructions to determine if the SUREFLOW™ monitor has been
properly installed.

PART ONE
User Basics
Reading product manuals should not be a difficult and time consuming process. This section
provides a brief but thorough overview of the SUREFLOW™ product by maximizing information
with minimal reading. These few pages explain the purpose (The Instrument), and the operation
(Useful User Information, Digital Interface Module, Alarms) of the unit. Technical product
information is available in Part Two of the manual. The manual focuses on laboratory spaces, but
the product information is accurate for any room pressure application.
The Instrument
SUREFLOW™ monitor measures and reports “room pressure.” Proper room pressure can control
airborne contaminants that can adversely affect experiments, workers in the laboratory, and
people in the laboratory vicinity. For example, laboratories with fume hoods need negative room
pressure (air flowing into the room), to minimize exposure to people outside the laboratory. The
fume hood is the first level of containment, and the laboratory itself is the second level of
containment.
Room pressure, or pressure differential, is created when one space (hallway) is at a different
pressure than an adjoining space (laboratory). When a pressure differential is created between two
spaces, air is forced to flow from the higher pressure space to the lower pressure space. The
direction of air flow is one component of proper room pressure. The second component of room
pressure is the speed or how fast is the air moving between the two spaces. The SUREFLOW™
monitor provides both pieces of information by measuring whether the air is flowing into or out of
a laboratory, and the speed of the air.
Negative room pressure is present when air flows from a hallway into the laboratory. If air flows
from the laboratory into the hallway the room is under positive pressure. Figure 1 gives a graphic
example of positive and negative room pressure.
Figure 1: Room Pressure
An example of negative pressure is a bathroom with an exhaust fan. When the fan is turned on, air
is exhausted out of the bathroom creating a slight negative pressure when compared to the
hallway. This pressure differential forces air to flow from the hallway into the bathroom.
1
The SUREFLOW™ device informs the laboratory users when the laboratory is under proper
pressure, and provides alarms when the room pressure is inadequate. If the room pressure is in the
safe range, a green light is on. If the pressure is inadequate, a red alarm light and audible alarm
turn on.
The SUREFLOW™ monitor consists of two pieces: a pressure sensor and a Digital Interface Module
(DIM). The pressure sensor is mounted above the doorway entrance to the laboratory. Usually the
DIM is mounted close to the entrance to the laboratory. The pressure sensor continuously
measures the room pressure and provides room pressure information to the DIM. The DIM
continuously reports the room pressure and activates the alarms when necessary. SUREFLOW™
monitor is a continuous measuring system providing instant information on the room pressure.
Useful User Information
The DIM has a green light and red light to indicate room pressure status. The green light is on
when the room has proper room pressure. The red light comes on when an alarm condition exists.
Sliding the door panel to the right reveals a digital display and keypad (Figure 2). The display
shows detailed information about room pressure, alarms, etc. The keypad allows the user to test
the device, and program or change the device parameters.
Figure 2: Digital Interface Module (DIM)
SUREFLOW™ monitor has two levels of user information:
1.
SUREFLOW™ monitor has a red light and green light to provide continuous
information on room pressure status.
2.
SUREFLOW™ monitor has a hidden operator panel providing detailed room status
information, self-testing capabilities, and access to the software programming
functions.
NOTE: The unit provides continuous room pressure status through the red and green light. The
operator panel is normally closed unless further information on room pressure status is
needed, or software programming is required.

Part One
Operator Panel
The DIM in Figure 3 shows the location of the digital display, keypad and lights. An explanation
of the operator panel follows the figure.
Figure 3: SUREFLOW™ Monitor Operator Panel - Open
Green / Red light
The green light is on when all the conditions for proper room pressure are adequate. This light
indicates the laboratory is operating safely. If any of the room pressure conditions cannot be
satisfied the green light turns off, and the red alarm light turns on.
Operator Panel
A cover hides the operator panel. Sliding the door panel to the right exposes the operator panel
(Figure 2).
Digital Display
The alphanumeric digital display is a two line display that indicates actual room pressure
(positive or negative), alarm status, menu options, and error messages. In normal operation (green
light is on), the display continuously scrolls information about room pressure, and other variables
programmed; flow, air changes per hour, etc.. The variables that scroll depend on the options
installed.
As an example, if an alarm condition occurs the variable that normally scrolls
STANDARD
STANDARD
NORMAL will change to read ALARM = *
* will state type of alarm; low pressure, high pressure, flow
NOTE: When switch input (pins 11 & 12) is closed, the word standard is replaced with remote
on display.
When programming the unit, the display will change and now show menus, menu items, and
current value of the item, depending on the specific programming function being performed.
Keypad
The keypad has six keys. The gray keys with black letters are user information keys. In normal
operation these keys are active. The gray keys with blue characters are used to program the unit.
The red emergency key has no function on the monitor and has been disconnected. A thorough
description of each key is given below.
User Basics
3
User Keys - Gray with Black Letters
The four keys with black letters provide the user information without changing the operation or
the function of the unit.
TEST Key
The TEST key initiates an instrument self-test. Pressing the TEST key activates a
scrolling sequence on the display that shows the product model number, software
version, and all set point and alarm values. The unit then performs a self test that tests the
display, indicator lights, audible alarm, and internal electronics to ensure they are
operating properly. If a problem with the unit exists, DATA ERROR will be displayed.
The user should have qualified personal determine the problem with the unit.
RESET Key
The RESET key performs two functions. 1) Resets the alarm light, alarm contacts, and
audible alarm when in a latched or non automatic reset mode. The room pressure must be
in the safe or normal range before the RESET key will operate. 2) Clears any displayed
error messages.
MUTE Key
The MUTE key temporarily silences the audible alarm. The time the alarm is temporarily
silenced is programmable by the user (see MUTE TIMEOUT). When the mute period
ends, the audible alarm turns back on if the alarm condition is still present.
NOTE: The user can program the audible alarm to be permanently turned off (see
AUDIBLE ALM).
AUX Key
The AUX key is active only in specialty applications and is not used on the standard
SUREFLOW™ monitor. If the AUX key is used, a separate manual supplement will
explain the AUX key function.
Programming Keys - Gray with Blue Characters
The four keys with blue print are used to program or configure the unit to fit a particular
application.
WARNING:
Pressing these keys will change how the unit functions, so please thoroughly
review the manual before changing menu items.
MENU Key
The MENU key performs three functions. 1) Provides access to the menus when in the
normal operating mode. 2) When the unit is being programmed, the MENU key acts as
an escape key to remove you from an item or menu, without saving data. 3) Returns the
unit to the normal operating mode. The MENU key is further described in the Software
Programming section of this manual.
SELECT Key
The SELECT key performs three functions. 1) Provides access to specific menus.
2) Provides access to menu items. 3) Saves data. Pressing the key when finished with a
menu item will save the data, and exit you out of the menu item.
/ Keys
The/ keys are used to scroll through the menus, menu items, and through the range
of item values that can be selected. Depending on the item type the values may be
numerical, specific properties (on / off), or a bar graph.
4
Part One
Alarms
SUREFLOW™ monitor has visual (red light) and audible alarms to inform the user of changing
conditions. The alarm levels (set points) are determined by administrative personnel, Industrial
Hygienists, or the facilities group depending on the organization.
The alarms, audible and visual, will activate whenever the preset alarm level is reached.
Depending on the SUREFLOW™ monitor items installed, programmed alarms will activate when
room pressure is low or inadequate, when room pressure is high or too great, or when the supply
or exhaust air flow is insufficient. When the laboratory is operating safely, no alarms will sound.
Example:
The low alarm is preset to activate when the room pressure reaches -0.001 inches
H2O. When the room pressure drops below -0.001 inches H2O (gets closer to zero),
the audible and visual alarms activate. The alarms turn off (when set to unlatched)
when the unit returns to the safe range which is defined as negative pressure greater
than -0.001 inches H2O.
Visual Alarm Operation
The red light on the front of the unit indicates an alarm condition. The red light is on for all low
and high alarm conditions.
Audible Alarms
The audible alarm is continuously on in all low and high alarm conditions. The audible alarm can
be temporarily silenced by pressing the MUTE key. The alarm will be silent for a period of time
(see MUTE TIMEOUT to program time period). When the time out period ends, the audible
alarm turns back on if the alarm condition is still present.
The user can program the audible alarm to be permanently turned off (see AUDIBLE ALM). The
red alarm light will still turn on in alarm conditions when audible alarm is turned off.
The audible and visual alarms can be programmed to either automatically turn off when the unit
returns to the safe range or to stay in alarm until the RESET key is pressed (See ALARM
RESET).

Part One
PART TWO
Technical Section
The SUREFLOW™ monitor is ready to use after being properly installed. The pressure sensor is
factory calibrated prior to shipping, and should not need adjustment. The Digital Interface Module
(DIM) is programmed with a default configuration that can be easily modified to fit your
application.
The Technical section is separated into five parts that cover all aspects of the unit. Each section is
written as independently as possible to minimize flipping back and forth through the manual for
an answer.
The Software Programming section explains the programming keys on the DIM. In addition, the
programming sequence is described, which is the same regardless of the menu item being
changed. At the end of this section is an example of how to program the DIM.
The Menu and Menu Item section lists all of the software items available to program and change.
The items are grouped by menu which means all calibration items are in one menu, alarm items in
another, etc. The menu items and all related information is listed in table format and includes
programming name, description of menu of item, range of programmable values, and how the unit
shipped from the factory (default values).
The Calibration section describes the required technique to compare the pressure sensor reading to
a thermal anemometer, and how to adjust the zero and span to obtain an accurate calibration. This
section also describes how to zero a flow station.
The Maintenance and Repair Parts section covers all routine maintenance of equipment, along
with a list of repair parts.
The Troubleshooting section is split into two areas: Mechanical operation of the unit and system
performance. Many external variables will affect how the unit functions so it is critical to first
determine if the unit is having mechanical problems - i.e., no display on unit, remote alarms don’t
function, etc. If problems still exist, look for performance problems (i.e., doesn’t seem to read
correctly, display fluctuates, etc.). The first step is to determine that the system is mechanically
operating correctly, followed by modifying the configuration to eliminate the performance
problems.

Software Programming
Programming the SUREFLOW™ monitor is quick and easy if the programming keys are understood,
and the proper keystroke procedure is followed. The programming keys are defined first, followed
by the required keystroke procedure. At the end of this section is a programming example.
NOTE: The unit is always operating while programming. When a menu item value is changed,
the new value takes effect immediately after saving the change.
NOTE: This section covers programming the instrument through the keypad and display. If
programming through RS-485 communications, use the host computer’s procedure. The
changes take place immediately upon saving data in the instrument.
Programming Keys
The four keys with blue characters (refer to Figure 4) are used to program or configure the unit to
fit your particular application. Programming the instrument will change how the unit functions, so

Menu and Menu Items
The SUREFLOW™ monitor is a very versatile device which can be configured to meet your specific
application. This section describes all of the menu items available to program and change (except
diagnostics menu). Changing any item is accomplished by using the keypad, or if communications
are installed through the RS-485 Communications port. If you are unfamiliar with the keystroke
procedure please see Software Programming for a detailed explanation. This section provides the
following information:
•
Complete list of menu and all menu items.
•
Gives the menu or programming name.
•
Defines each menu item’s function; what it does, how it does it, etc..
•
Gives the range of values that can be programmed.
•
Gives default item value (how it shipped from factory).
The menus covered in this section are divided into groups of related items to ease programming.
As an example all calibration items are in one menu, alarm information in another, etc. The
manual follows the menus as programmed in the controller. The menu items are always grouped
by menu and then listed in menu item order, not alphabetical order. Figure 5 shows a chart of all
the Model 8635-M monitor menu items.

set for a longer period of time than the ALARM DELAY. This delay
affects the visual alarm, audible alarm, and relay outputs. The DOOR
DELAY prevents nuisance alarms from people leaving the doors open
to move equipment into or out of the laboratory, or when a large group
will be entering or leaving the laboratory.

ALARM CONSTRAINTS
There are a number of constraints built into the software that prevent users from programming conflicting alarm information. These are as follows:
1.
Remote alarms. The remote alarms are only active when the switch input (pins 11 and 12) is closed. When the remote alarms are
active, the standard alarms are turned off.
2.
The SUREFLOW™ monitor is programmed not to allow the pressure alarms to be programmed within 40 ft/min (+0.00028 “ H2O at
0.001 “H2O) of each other.
Example: The LOW ALARM set point is -0.00072 “H2O. The HIGH ALARM set point cannot be set lower than
-0.00128 “H2O.
3.
The alarms, both standard and remote, can be programmed for positive or negative pressure. However, both the low and high alarm
must be set either positive or negative. The DIM does not allow one positive alarm and one negative alarm.
4.
Alarms do not terminate until the pressure exceeds the alarm set point. The alarm set point must be slightly exceeded before alarm
will terminate.
5.
The ALARM RESET item selects how the alarms will terminate when monitor returns to the safe range. The pressure and flow
alarms all terminate the same; they are either latched or unlatched. If unlatched is selected the alarms automatically turn off when the
value slightly exceeds the alarm set point. If latched is selected the alarms will not terminate until the pressure exceeds the alarm set
point and the RESET key is pressed.
6.
There is a programmable ALARM DELAY (and optional DOOR DELAY) that determines how long to delay before activating the
alarms. This delay affects all pressure and flow alarms. The door delay is active when switch input (pins 11 and 12) is closed.
7.
The MUTE TIMEOUT item temporarily turns the audible alarm off for all pressure and flow alarms.
ALARM CONSTRAINTS (continued)
8.
The display can only show one alarm message. Therefore, the controller has an alarm priority system, with the highest priority alarm
being displayed. If multiple alarms exist, the lower priority alarms will not display until after the highest priority alarm has been
eliminated. The alarm priority is as follows:
Pressure sensor - low alarm
Pressure sensor - high alarm
Flow station - minimum flow

Calibration
The calibration section explains how to calibrate the SUREFLOW™ pressure sensor, including
setting the proper elevation, and how to zero a flow station.
NOTE: The SUREFLOW™ pressure sensor is factory calibrated and normally does not need to be
adjusted. However, inaccurate readings may be detected if pressure sensor is not installed
correctly, or problems with the sensor exists. First check that the sensor is installed
correctly (usually only a problem on initial set up). Second, go into DIAGNOSTICS
menu, SENSOR STAT item. If NORMAL is displayed, calibration can be adjusted. If
an error code is displayed, eliminate error code and then verify pressure sensor needs
adjustment.
All pressure transducer based flow stations and 1 to 5 VDC linear flow stations must be
zeroed upon initial system setup. Linear 0 to 5 VDC flow stations do not require a zero
flow to be established.
Adjusting the SUREFLOW™ monitor calibration may be required to eliminate errors due to
convection currents, HVAC configuration, or equipment used to make the measurement. TSI
recommends always taking the comparison measurement in the exact same location (i.e., under
the door, middle of door, edge of door, etc.). A thermal air velocity meter is needed to make the
comparison measurement. Normally the velocity is checked at the crack under the doorway, or the
door is opened 1” to allow alignment of the air velocity probe making the measurement. If the
crack under the door is not large enough, use the 1” open door technique.

Technical Section
25
WARNING: The span can only be adjusted in the same pressure direction. Adjusting
span cannot cross zero pressure. Example: If unit displays +0.0001 and
actual pressure is -0.0001 do not make any adjustments. Manually change
the air balance, close or open dampers, or open door slightly to get both
unit and actual pressure to read in same direction (both read positive or
negative). This problem can only occur at very low pressures so slightly
changing the balance should eliminate the problem.
Perform a smoke test to determine pressure direction.

Part Two
Maintenance and Repair Parts
The Model 8635 SUREFLOW™ Room Pressure Monitor requires minimal maintenance. Periodic
inspection of system components as well as an occasional pressure sensor cleaning are all that are
needed to insure that the Model 8635 is operating properly.
System Component Inspection
It is recommended that the pressure sensor be periodically inspected for accumulation of
contaminants. The frequency of these inspections is dependent upon the quality of the air being
drawn across the sensor. Quite simply, if the air is dirty, the sensors will require more frequent
inspection and cleaning.
Visually inspect the pressure sensor by sliding open the sensor housing door (Figure 7). The air
flow orifice should be free of obstructions. The small ceramic coated sensors protruding from the
orifice wall should be white and free of accumulated debris.
Figure 7: Pressure sensor door slid open
Periodically inspect the other system components for proper performance and physical signs of
excessive wear.
Pressure Sensor Cleaning
Accumulations of dust or dirt can be removed with a dry soft-bristled brush (such as an artist's
brush). If necessary, water, alcohol, acetone, or trichlorethane may be used as a solvent to remove
other contaminants.
Use extreme care when cleaning the velocity sensors. The ceramic sensor may break if excessive
pressure is applied, if sensor is scraped to remove contaminants, or if the cleaning apparatus
abruptly impacts the sensor.
WARNING:
If you are using a liquid to clean the sensor, turn off power to the Model 8635.
Do not use compressed air to clean the velocity sensors.
Do not attempt to scrape contaminants from the velocity sensors. The velocity
sensors are quite durable; however, scraping may cause mechanical damage and
possibly break the sensor. Mechanical damage due to scraping voids the
pressure sensor warranty.

Troubleshooting Section
The SUREFLOW™ Room Pressure Monitor is designed to be trouble free. However, installation
problems or interaction with other HVAC components may cause system problems. The
SUREFLOW™ system is easy to trouble shoot if an organized approach to evaluate the system is
taken. Troubleshooting is broken down into hardware and software problems. Hardware problems
deal with the physical installation of the device. Hardware problems include wiring problems,
incorrectly installed equipment, and add-ons or non TSI equipment. Software problems include
configuration problems, or interaction problems with the HVAC system.
The hardware test described in this section determines that all TSI mechanical components are
functioning correctly. The hardware test requires the diagnostics menu items to be accessed. If
you are unfamiliar with the SUREFLOW™ monitor menus, see Software Programming for
keystroke procedure. Troubleshooting the majority of problems is usually quick if the hardware
test is followed.
Software and hardware problems are covered in the troubleshooting chart. Pick the problem that
most closely resembles your problem and review the possible symptoms and corrective action.
Software or system performance problems can and are affected by the supply air system, exhaust
air system, or physical configuration of the room. Separating TSI system problems from the
HVAC system can sometimes be difficult. TSI recommends confirming all hardware is operating
correctly before troubleshooting software problems.
Hardware Test
Three tests need to be performed in order to determine all hardware is functioning correctly. The
tests are broken down into:
•
Confirming wiring is correct.
•
Confirming physical installation is correct.
•
Verifying mechanical components.
Confirming wiring is correct
The most common problem with installed hardware equipment is incorrect wiring. This problem
usually exists on initial installation, or when modifications to the system take place. The wiring
should be very closely checked to verify it exactly matches the wiring diagram. The TSI cables are
all color coded to ensure proper wiring. A wiring diagram is located in Appendix B of this
manual. Wiring associated with non TSI components should be closely checked for correct
installation. If non TSI components are installed, consider disconnecting them for testing
purposes.
28
Part Two
Confirming physical installation is correct
All of the hardware components need to be installed properly. Review the installation instructions
and verify components are installed properly at the correct location. This is easily done when the
wiring is checked.
Verifying mechanical components
Verifying all TSI components are operating correctly requires following a simple procedure. The
fastest procedure to confirm all equipment is operating is to first test the DIM, and then go into the
diagnostic menu to test each component.
NOTE: These tests require power to the units, so if unit has no power, refer to hardware
troubleshooting chart to eliminate power problem.
TEST - DIM
Press TEST key to verify Digital Interface Module (DIM) electronics are functioning
correctly. At the end of the self test, the display will show SELF TEST - PASSED if all
DIM electronics are good. If unit displays DATA ERROR at the end of the test, the
electronics may be corrupted. Check all software items to determine cause of DATA
ERROR.
If SELF TEST - PASSED is displayed proceed to test individual components. Enter
Diagnostics Menu and check the following:
•
Sensor input.
•
Sensor status.
•
Analog output.
These diagnostic menu items are explained in detail in the next section (Diagnostics Menu)
of the manual, so their function is not reviewed here. If the SUREFLOW™ system passes
each of the tests, the mechanical piece parts are all functioning correctly.
TEST - Sensor input
Enter SENSOR INPUT menu item in diagnostics menu. A voltage between 0 and 10 volts
DC will be displayed. It is not important what the exact voltage is to pass this test. Tape
over the pressure sensor (slide pressure sensor door open) and voltage should read
approximately 5 volts (zero pressure). Remove tape and blow on sensor. Displayed value
should change. If voltage changes, the unit passes. If voltage doesn’t change, proceed to
TEST - Sensor status.
TEST - Sensor status
Enter SENSOR STAT menu item in diagnostics menu. If NORMAL is displayed, the unit
passes test. If an error message is displayed, go to diagnostics menu section of the manual,
SENSOR STAT menu item for explanation of error message.
TEST - Analog output
NOTE: This test is only performed if analog output feature is being used.
Enter ANALOG OUT menu item in diagnostics menu. A value between 0 and 255 will be
displayed. Hook up a DC voltmeter to pins 9 and 10. Press the / keys to change output
from 0 to 255. Voltage should change from 10 volts to zero volts (20 mA to 0 mA if
current output).
TEST - Flow station
Enter FLOW INPUT menu item in diagnostics menu. A voltage between 0 and 5 volts DC
will be displayed. The exact voltage displayed is not important as long as the voltage varies
Technical Section
29
as flow changes. Zero volts equals no flow while 5 volts is maximum flow. The signal is
linear, so a correlation between flow and voltage can be established.
If unit passed all tests, the mechanical components are physically working. If problems still exist,
go to troubleshooting chart for additional information, on both hardware and software symptoms.
Diagnostics Menu
The items in the diagnostic menu aid in identifying problems the staff may encounter. The items
in this menu temporarily change the function by pressing the / keys. No permanent change
occurs with these menu items. Items are exited by pressing the MENU key. When an item is
exited the SUREFLOW™ monitor returns to its normal state.
Sensor Input
Menu item - SENSOR INPUT
The SENSOR INPUT item is used to verify that the DIM is receiving a signal from the
sensor. When this item is entered, a voltage will be indicated on the display. The exact
voltage displayed is relatively unimportant. It is more important that the voltage is
changing which indicates the sensor is working correctly.
0 volts represents a negative pressure of -0.2 inches H2O.
5 volts represents 0 pressure.
10 volts represents a positive pressure of +0.2 inches H2O.
Sensor Communications
Menu Item - SENSOR STAT
The SENSOR STAT item verifies that the RS-485 communications between the
pressure sensor and DIM is working correctly. Sensor error messages do not display on
DIM except when SENSOR STAT item is selected. The item will display NORMAL if
communications are established correctly. If problems exist, one of four error messages
will display:
COMM ERROR - DIM cannot communicate with sensor. Check all wiring and the
pressure sensor address. Address must be 1 (Figure 9).
SENS ERROR - Problem with sensor bridge. Physical damage to pressure
sensor or sensor circuitry. Unit is not field repairable. Send to
TSI for repair.
CAL ERROR - Calibration data lost. Sensor must be returned to TSI to be
calibrated.
DATA ERROR - Problem with EEPROM, field calibration, or analog output
calibration lost. Check all data programmed and confirm unit is
function correctly.
Analog Output
Menu Item - ANALOG OUT
The ANALOG OUT item is used to vary the analog output from the SUREFLOW™ unit.
When this item is entered, a number will be shown on the display indicating the last
analog output value. The value displayed ranges from 0 to 255. The value 255
corresponds to the lowest voltage (current) output and 0 corresponds to the highest
voltage (current) output. Pressing the  key will decrease the analog output and increase
the value displayed. Pressing the  key will increase the analog output and decrease the
value displayed.
The ANALOG OUT function can be used in conjunction with a volt meter to verify the
analog output is correct.

Switch Input
Menu Item - SWITCH INPUT
The SWITCH INPUT item reads the input of the SWITCH IN contact pins 11 and 12.
When this item is entered, the display will indicate either open or closed. If the display
indicates open, the DIM is in LOW ALARM, HIGH ALARM and ALARM DELAY
mode. If the display indicates closed, the DIM is in REM LOW ALM, REM HIGH
ALM, and DOOR DELAY mode.
SWITCH INPUT changes both alarm and alarm delay when closed. If the same alarm or
alarm delay is required, set both alarms or delays to same value.
Flow Input
Menu Item - FLOW INPUT
The FLOW INPUT item is used to read the input from the flow station. When this item
is entered, a voltage will be indicated on the display. The exact voltage displayed is
relatively unimportant. It is more important that the voltage is changing which indicates
the flow station is working correctly.
0 volts displayed equals zero flow.
5 volts displayed equals 2832 ft/min x duct area (ft2) - pressure based flow
station.
5 volts displayed equals TOP VELOCITY x duct area (ft2)- linear flow stations
(see Configure menu, TOP VELOCITY item).
Low Alarm Relay
Menu Item - LOW ALM REL
The LOW ALM REL item is used to change the state of the low alarm relay. When this
item is entered, the display will indicate either OPEN or CLOSED. The / keys are
used to toggle the state of the relay. The  key is used to OPEN the alarm contact. The
 key is used to CLOSE the alarm contact. When the contact is closed, the LOW ALM
REL should be in an alarm condition.
High Alarm Relay
Menu Item - HIGH ALM REL
The HIGH ALM REL item is used to change the state of the high alarm relay. When this
item is entered, the display will indicate either OPEN or CLOSED. The / keys are
used to toggle the state of the relay. The  key is used to OPEN the alarm contact. The
 key is used to CLOSE the alarm contact. When the contact is closed, the HIGH ALM
REL should be in an alarm condition.
Access Code

Troubleshooting Chart
Symptom
Display is blank.
Possible Cause
Fuse is blown.
Corrective Action
Measure voltage at pins 1 and 2 on DIM.
The voltage should nominally be 24 to 30 VAC.
If correct voltage is measured, internal DIM fuse is probably
blown. Unplug 14-pin connector from DIM for 2 minutes.
The internal fuse will automatically reset. Plug unit back in
and check display. If display is still blank, check all wiring,
etc. If no problems are found, replace DIM.
If zero volts are measured, see No power to DIM.
Sensor does not
calibrate.
No power to DIM.
Verify circuit breaker is on.
Verify transformer primary measures 110 VAC.
Verify transformer secondary measures 24 to 30 VAC.
DIM is defective.
If proper voltage is found between pins 1 and 2 of the DIM,
all wiring has been checked, fuses have been reset, and screen
is still blank, the DIM is probably defective. Replace DIM.
Incorrect pressure
sensor address.
Pressure sensor must have address of 1. Check pressure
sensor dip switches 5 & 6 and verify address 1 is correct
(7 to12 must be OFF).

Problem with sensor
(slow uniform blink).
Corrective Action
Check SENSOR STAT and confirm NORMAL is displayed.
If ERROR is displayed, correct error.
Communication (fast
burst of non-uniform
blinking).
Unit is communicating with DIM. This is normal.
Red LED is
constantly on.
This is normal when no problems exist or when no
communication is occurring.
DIM always
displays 0.200
inches H2O.
Incorrect pressure
sensor output.
Pressure sensor must be set for 0 to 10 volt output, not
4 to 20 mA (do not confuse this output with DIM analog
output). Check pressure sensor dip switch 3 and make sure it
is OFF (see Figure 8).
DIM does not
respond to RS-485
communications.
Network protocol is
incorrect.
Go into INTERFACE menu, NET PROTOCOL item. The
protocol must match host system. Select correct interface.
Incorrect network
address.
The network address at the building automation system and at
the DIM must match. The network address must be unique for
each DIM.
Incompatible
software.
Data sent to DIM may be in form that the SUREFLOW™
monitor cannot recognize.
DIM displays
opposite pressure
signal.
Sensor direction is
incorrect.
Pressure sensor must have dip switch correctly set for proper
sign display. Verify dip switch 4 is ON when sensor is
mounted in the laboratory (controlled space), and OFF when
sensor is mounted in corridor (reference space). See Figure 8.
Alarm relays don't
work.
Alarms are turned
off.
Press TEST key. The individual alarm set points will display.
If all alarm set points are zero, alarm relay is not active, so
relay will not be required to change state.
Incorrect wiring.
Check the wiring from SUREFLOW™ monitor relay's output to
the device that is connected to the relays.
Relay may be
defective.
Disconnect the wiring from relay contact pins 13 and 14 for
low alarm relay and pins 25 and 26 for high alarm relay. Go
into DIAGNOSTICS menu, LOW ALM REL or HIGH ALM
REL. Connect an ohmmeter to relay terminals to verify
contact open and closes. Press the/ key to manually trip
the relay. If relay responds (contact opens and closes), the
device connected is incompatible or defective. If relay doesn’t
respond, relay is defective (may be caused by incompatible
device). Replace DIM.
Technical Section

Symptom
"DATA ERROR"
flashing on display.
Possible Cause
DIM was hit by
electrical
disturbance.
Corrective Action
All data may be lost or changed. Review all configuration
parameters. DATA ERROR is removed by pressing the
RESET key.
Displayed pressure
wildly fluctuating.
Exhaust or supply
system unstable.
Check supply and exhaust flow for stability. Verify reference
pressure is not fluctuating.
Supply or exhaust air
is affecting the
sensor.
Check location of supply air diffusers and exhaust grilles.
They should be as far from pressure sensor as is realistic,
6 feet preferred, 2½ feet minimum. Supply diffuser terminal
throw velocity must be less than 10 ft/min at the sensor.
Relocate supply or exhaust as needed.
