2. About Your Monitor
The Aeroqual Series 300, 305, 500 and 505 Monitors have been specifically designed to incorporate Aeroqual‟s in-depth knowledge of accurate ambient gas measurement. Different sensor heads are used for
specific gases or depending upon whether high or low concentrations
are to be measured. All the sensor heads are interchangeable on the
same base unit.
The following information details the operation and features of the monitors:
1. The monitors are modular in design and are comprised of two
main components, a Series 300, 305, 500 or 505 monitor, and a
sensor head. This affords the user the ability to replace faulty sensor heads without having to replace the monitor. The monitors can
be mains and/or battery powered and either permanently mounted
or used as portable units.
2. The sensor head is calibrated prior to delivery and does not normally need to be re-calibrated during its life. (Specific user
guides are supplied for the special operations of particular sensor
heads).
3. The Aeroqual Series 300, 305, 500 and 505 Monitors come with
on-board diagnostics, which will inform the user if the sensor is
not operating correctly.
4. High and low alarms. The high alarm is indicated by flashing
arrows pointing upwards accompanied by a fast beeping sound.
Similarly the low alarm is indicated by flashing arrows pointing
downwards accompanied by a slow beeping sound. This sets
both the monitor and external alarms.
5. Alarm mute. Two alarm mute functions are available, temporary
and permanent mute. Temporary mute is only active during the
specific alarm condition, while permanent mute will remain on until
reset by the user. The alarm arrow indications remain active during both temporary and permanent mute.
6. Control. This enables external equipment to be controlled by the
monitor using the high and low control settings, which can be
used to control an external device.
7. Concentration unit selection. The concentration can be displayed in either ppm or mg/m3.
8. Min / max / average measurement cycle. The monitor will display the minimum, maximum, average and 15-minute average
gas concentrations over the measurement period. The Series 305
& 505 will also show temperature and relative humidity in addition
to gas concentration.
9. 0-5V Analogue signal. A proportional voltage output is available
from the external output. The voltage relates to the gas concentration, with 0 V representing 0 concentration and 5 V represent-
ing the maximum concentration specified by the range. For example, 0 V represents 0 ppm and 5 V representing 0.500 ppm for
the Low Concentration Ozone Sensor Head.
Note: See “Diagnostic Features” on page 42 for output status conditions.
The Series 500 & 505 Monitors offer the following additional features:
1.
Data logging (on either the Series 500 or 505 Monitor or directly
to a PC). The monitor is able to log up to 8000 data points. The
data can be downloaded to a PC for analysis and record purposes. Data can also be logged directly to a PC via a serial connection while displaying real time data on the PC. The data logging interval can be set in one minute increments from either the
monitor or the PC.
The Series 505 monitor also measures and data logs temperature and relative humidity.
2.
Real time clock (24 hr). The clock has a back up clock battery
which will maintain the real time even when all power is lost to
the monitor. Once power is restored data logging will continue if t
he unit was data logging at the time power was lost.
3.
PC setup of monitor parameters. All the monitor parameters,
i.e. clock setup, alarm setup, external control setup, logging
setup and concentration units can be set up from the PC.
5
3.0 Assembly and Installation
Assembly
The following needs to be completed before the Monitor is ready
for use:  Insert the sensor head into the top of the monitor. The sensor head is keyed to ensure the head is inserted correctly.

If the monitor is a mains only unit it is ready for use. If the
monitor is to be used as a portable unit with batteries then
the batteries must be installed and charged prior to use.

Charging and Discharging the Batteries
Ni-MH batteries
Ni-MH batteries must be fully charged prior to first-time use. A new Ni-MH
battery's full performance is achieved only after a number of complete
charge and discharge cycles. A fully charged battery will run for approximately 4-6 hours depending on the sensor head being used.
Charging Instructions
With the adaptor plugged in allow 15 hours for the battery to fully charge.
Note 1:
 During charging the battery symbol on the display flashes slowly.
 The battery can be charged with the sensor head installed or removed
from the base. (Remember to switch off the monitor before removing
the sensor head).
 Unplugging the main power will reset the above charging conditions.
 The batteries can be charged and discharged many times but will eventually wear out. When the operating time is noticeably shorter than normal, it is time to replace the batteries.
 It is not necessary to fully discharge the batteries. When not using the
Series 300, 305, 500 or 505 Monitor as a portable unit, always plug in
the mains adaptor to recharge the batteries.
 If left unused a fully charged battery will discharge itself over time.
Note 2:
If you have difficulty charging the battery, either:
A)
Replace the battery
B)
Contact Aeroqual with the software version number
(see section 3.3 to locate the version number.)
Additional Information for Lithium Polymer Batteries
A new battery's full performance is achieved only after a number of complete charge and discharge cycles. A fully charged battery will run for approximately 10 hours depending on the sensor head being used.
Charging Instructions
 With the adaptor plugged in allow 3 hours for the battery to fully charge.
 There is no battery symbol on the display when using a lithium battery.
 The battery can be charged with the sensor head installed or removed
from the base. (Remember to switch off the monitor before removing
the sensor head).
 The Lithium Smart Charger displays a red LED light when charging
and a green LED light when the battery is charged.
Installing the AC/DC adaptor
 Connect the AC/DC adaptor to the mains supply. Ensure that
the adaptor is correctly rated for the power supply.
 Plug the adaptor into the monitor. The monitor can now be
used as a mains unit. If the monitor is to be used as a portable unit the batteries will need to be charged.
3.2 Sensor warm up
Prior to operation the monitor must be warmed up to burn off
contaminants on the sensor. When the monitor is first switched
on it will warm up for 3 minutes. Then the reading will flash for
the next 7 minutes to indicate that the sensor is still in the warm
up phase. It is recommended that the monitor is kept in Stand By
mode when not being used to keep the sensor heated and
prevent the build up of contaminants. If the sensor is new (or
unused for long periods) it can take up to 24 hours for the
message “sensor warming up” (or “sensor failure” in older
models) to disappear. Should the message remain after this time,
a genuine sensor failure may have occurred. See the troubleshooting guide.
24hrs is a conservative time for an ozone sensor to burn off contaminants and achieve its stated performance specification. In
most instances this will be achieved well within 24hrs.
Since O3 is an oxidising gas the warm up period can be reduced
by subjecting the sensor to elevated O3 levels for a short period.
For example, 100 ppb of O3 for 5 minutes typically reduces the
warm up time to 30 minutes.
Warning: Do not remove the sensor head while the monitor
is switched on. This may damage the unit. If the sensor head is
removed under these conditions, the unit will automatically shut
down.
3.3 Monitor and Sensor Versions
Turning the monitor on will display “AEROQUAL MONITOR
S300 / S305 / S500 / S505 V x.x”, where "V x.x" represents
the version of the monitor base. The display will then show
“SV6.0” or similar, which indicates the software version installed
on the sensor head

6. External Control Wiring
The pin numbers for the external output connector are numbered from 1 to 6. Pin 1 is the closest pin to the power jack.
The pin designations are as follows:
1.
12 V DC
2.
Analogue output 0-5 V
3.
Control
4.
High alarm
5.
Low alarm
6.
Ground
The RJ12 connector offers two possibilities for wiring, either a
switch to GND or a 12V output. If the 12V output is used, the
power for the relay coil is supplied by the Aeroqual AC/DC
adaptor. In this case, ensure that the relay coil does not draw
more than 150mA and that a protection diode is inserted
across the relay coil.
If the switch to GND output is used, ensure that the relay coil
does not draw more than 150mA, that the voltage does not
exceed 24V and that a protection diode is inserted across the
relay coil.
Wiring for alarm
The high alarm and low alarm pins can be wired to supply simple on / off switching to operate equipment which requires only
an on or off signal, such as an alarm.
To switch to GND use pins 4, 5 and 6. For a 12V output wire
to pins 4, 5 and 1 (see the following diagram for typical wiring
for high alarm). This feature will only operate while powered by
the AC adaptor. The factory default settings are based on the
gas sensor head selected at time of purchase.

WARNING
Failure to insert a circuit protection diode, shown as above, will
result in damage to the monitor if a voltage spike is created by
the relay.
Wiring for control
The control pin can be wired to supply control of a gas
concentration between upper and lower concentration limits. The
upper and lower limits can be set by the user, thus affording the
user the opportunity to customise the control. The factory default
settings are dependent on the gas sensor head selected at time
of purchase.
To switch to GND use pins 3 and 6. For a 12V output wire to pins
3 and 1 (see following diagram for typical wiring). This feature will
only operate while powered by the AC adaptor.
Control is achieved by using a software latch. If power is lost to
the monitor, the switch will open and therefore turn off the external device connected to the monitor external output. The
following wiring diagram demonstrates the typical wiring to
achieve the required control.

Wiring the 0-5 V analogue output (wire between
Pins 2 & 6)
The 0 to 5 V signal is a proportional signal based on the
concentration of gas. The voltage out spans the specified gas
sensor concentration range, for example: with the low
concentration ozone sensor head: 0 V represents 0 ppm
Ozone and 5 V represents 0.500 ppm Ozone.

installation, calibration and maintenance of the product, accident, modification or
adjustment, events beyond human control, improper ventilation and damage
resulting from liquid or corrosion.
This warranty does not cover product failures due to repairs, modifications or
improper service performed by a non-Aeroqual authorized service workshop or
opening of the product by non-Aeroqual authorized persons.
The warranty does not cover product failures which have been caused by use of
non-Aeroqual original accessories.
This warranty becomes void if a non-Aeroqual approved AC/DC adaptor or battery
is used.
Tampering with any part of the product will void the warranty.
Damage to the sensors can occur through exposure to certain sensor poisons
such as silicones, tetraethyl lead, paints and adhesives. Use of Aeroqual sensors
in these environments containing these materials may (at the discretion of Aeroqual) void the warranty on the sensor head. Exposure to gas concentrations outside of the design range of a specific Aeroqual sensor head can adversely affect
the calibration of that sensor head and will also void this warranty as it applies to
the replacement of sensor heads.
Aeroqual makes no other express warranties, whether written or oral, other than
contained within this printed limited warranty. To the fullest extent allowable by law
all warranties implied by law, including without limitation the implied warranties of
merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, are expressly excluded, and in
no event shall Aeroqual be liable for incidental or consequential damages of any
nature whatsoever, however they arise, from the purchase or use of the product,
and including but not limited to lost profits or business loss.
Some countries restrict or do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or
consequential damage, or limitation of the duration of implied warranties, so the
preceding limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you
specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights, which may vary from
country to country.

for help.
11.8 Guidelines on How to Measure Ozone
The following information is presented to help users operate their
Aeroqual monitor with an ozone sensor installed in the most effective
and efficient manner.
General

Ozone is heavier than air and tends to sink. Thus detection
of leaks from ozone generating equipment should be performed at the most appropriate position.
Ozone will react and decompose on surfaces such as walls,
furniture etc.
Smell is not a reliable test for the presence or concentration
of ozone as the odour threshold varies widely between people and is affected by local ambient conditions.


Permanent Controller Placement

The Aeroqual Ozone Controller has been designed to meas-
ure the ambient concentration of ozone. The controller must
not be placed directly in an ozone stream.
For indoor local area monitoring attach the controller to an
inert surface with the inlet unobstructed.
For leak detection mount the unit near the ozone equipment.
Ensure that the controller is protected from excessive water
splashing, dust, vibration, excessive heat or cold, high concentrations of ozone and excessive swings in humidity.



False Readings

The Aeroqual Ozone Controller has been designed to respond selectively to ozone, however other oxidizing gases
such as chlorine and nitrogen dioxide can generate false
readings if they are at high concentrations. High concentrations of hydrocarbon gases such as vapours of alcohol, oils
and solvents can reduce and mask the concentration of
ozone.

11.9 Zero calibration additional Information
A zero calibration menu routine is included in the Series 300 and Series
500 monitors, however it is important to understand when this should be
used. All Aeroqual sensors are supplied pre-calibrated and zero calibration is performed in the factory in an atmosphere containing < 0.5 ppm
hydrocarbons, 50% relative humidity and 25 oC. Zero baseline reading
checks should be performed ideally under the same conditions.
Why is the baseline not zero when no sensor gas is present ?
Under some circumstances the sensors may exhibit a baseline reading
higher than zero. This will be due to one of the following:

The sensor has not warmed up sufficiently. The sensor
should be left to run in clean air for 24 hours if it is new or
has not been used in the past week.

There are trace levels of gases present in the air to which the
sensor is cross-sensitive. In many cases, the non-zero baseline reading occurs in an environment which is supposed to
be "clean" but for which no analysis has been carried out,
such as, an office or urban outdoor air. Re-check the baseline reading in clean air from a known source such as a zero
air cylinder or clean outdoor air.

The humidity of the air is significantly different to 50 % RH.
Under this condition the sensor may display a small shift in
the baseline reading (<1% of fullscale).

There has been some drift in the baseline.
When should I perform a Zero Calibration ?

If the sensor has been warmed up in a clean air environment
and it still displays a small positive after 24 hours then a zero
calibration can be performed. This process takes only a few
minutes and can be performed repeatedly without problems.
