G100 Range Optional Products and Accessories
3.1
Optional Products
The G100 analyzer range has a number of optional products for purchase which enhance
the usability and enable further analysis of data and reading information.
 Note: For further information, please contact ORIGIO Sales at [email protected] or
Customer Service +45 46 79 02 02.
3.1.1
Analyzer Data Manager (Optional)
Analyzer Data Manager enables the user to maximise the operation of the incubator
analyzer. Instrument readings and event log data may be downloaded to a PC for further
analysis and exported to other applications such as MS Excel. It enables direct
communication with the unit, features a simple download facility and is fully compatible
with the latest Microsoft operating systems.
3.1.1.1 Event Log
The G100 instruments incorporate the facility to log significant events via the ‘Event Log’.
This can be used as an aid to monitoring the use of the instrument. It can also be used as
a diagnostic tool if there is a problem with the instrument.
The event log can only be viewed via the optional Analyzer Data Manager software. It
cannot be viewed on the analyzer screen. Applicable events are stored in the event log
automatically. No user intervention is required.
The event log can hold approximately 270 events. If the log becomes full then it begins
to over-write the older events. This can be identified by the index field which starts from
event number 1. The log is cleared when the instrument is reset.
 Note: Please refer to section ‘12.0 Event Log’ of this operating manual for further
information.
3.1.2
Temperature Probe Reading (Optional)
The G100 range of instruments has the facility to read and display two temperature
readings via optional temperature probes. When a temperature probe is fitted to one of
the two temperature ports on the top of the instrument, the display will automatically
show the current reading and a temperature probe icon will be displayed.
The display can also be changed to show a T1 – T2 calculation by pressing the appropriate
soft-key. The current mode of operation can be identified by normal or inverse status of
the soft-key, where inverse indicates that the option is active.
 Note: The T1 – T2 result is not stored as part of the reading.
The operator can also choose to display the reading in either Fahrenheit or Centigrade
using the temperature option accessed from the ‘Settings’ menu.

G100 Analyzer
3.1.3
GOMORIGIO1.1
Humidity Probe Reading (Optional)
The instrument has the optional facility to use a humidity probe (specified at the time of
manufacture). This allows the instrument to read and display humidity readings from an
optional probe.
When a humidity probe is fitted, the display will change automatically to show the
current reading and a humidity probe icon will be displayed. The ‘Scroll’ keys on the
instrument panel are used to switch between the reading screens.
The humidity kit comprises of:

Humidity lead

Humidity sensor
Connection of the Humidity Sensor:
Plug the humidity sensor onto the mating connector of the transmitter or connection
cable. Make sure that the catches are aligned correctly. Tighten the knurled nut by
hand.
 Note: The humidity sensor can take 30 minutes to stabilize and special handling is
required for optimum performance and stability. Please refer to the instruction
pamphlet included with the humidity sensor packaging for the Humidity
Standards.
3.1.4
Oxygen Reading (Optional)
The instrument has the optional facility to use an internal oxygen cell (specified at the
time of manufacture). This allows the instrument to read and display oxygen readings
along with CO2.
 Note: Oxygen sensor stability; as the sensor is a partial pressure sensor its output
will be affected by changes in relative humidity. Although the percentage of O2
in the air is relatively constant, the relative humidity in air is variable. A unit
calibrated with dry air could cause the readout to read low by up to 0.5% by
volume.

Gas Measurement Process
(G100 - Best Practice)
Depending on preferences the exact reading procedure can change.
The following method is considered best practice and when followed correctly will allow
quick and consistent readings to be recorded.
1)
When the instrument is first switched on it should be purged with fresh air and
allowed to stabilise for a few minutes.
2)
At this point it is good practice to verify the CO2 channel. Calibrate only if required.
This option is available via the ‘Calibration’ menu.
The instrument is now ready to take the first reading.
3)
Connect the sample tube, if relevant (always use the sample filter) from the sample
point to the inlet port of the instrument, ensuring the filter is seated correctly.
4)
Press the ‘Pump’ key to draw a sample into the instrument.
Notice the main gas readings start to change. It is recommended to run the pump
until the gas readings have stabilized (approx. 30 seconds) then press the soft-key
‘Store’.
5)
The pump will stop and the operator will be prompted to enter an ID code to identify
the reading. A “reading stored” confirmation message will be displayed briefly before
returning to the ‘Main Read Screen’.
 Note:
6)
The ID code prompt can be switched on or off. This option is accessed via
the ‘Settings’ menu, then press ‘Key 1 - Prompt for ID: Yes or No’. If the
ID prompt is set to ‘No’ the reading is stored using the default logging ID.
After each reading the instrument should be purged with fresh air.
 Copyright 2012 ORIGIO
Page 27
GOMORIGIO1.1
7)
G100 Analyzer
Disconnect the sample tube from the instrument. Then, run the pump for a minimum
of 30 seconds. The gas readings should return to nominal values for fresh air.
Regardless of the instrument configuration the following data will be stored for each
reading:

ID code (8 characters)

Reading Type (0=User, 1=Auto, 2=peak, 3=hold)

Current time/date

Gas readings (CO2, O2)

Sample pressure (for indication only)

Temperature x 2

Humidity
6.3
Alternative Reading Methods
There are three other reading types or methods which each require slightly different
operating procedures.

Logged reading

Peak reading

Hold reading
6.3.1
Logged Reading
Logged readings need to be configured and initiated via the ‘Utilities’ menu by pressing
‘Key 6 - Logging’. During configuration the user will be asked to supply an ID, reading
interval and pump run-time.
These parameters are used to control the reading frequency in logging mode. Once
logging mode is activated the instrument will automatically record a reading at every
interval until stopped by the operator or the memory becomes full. Logging is also
suspended temporarily whilst the user is accessing the menu options.
While logging mode is active the ‘Hold’, ‘Pump’ and ‘Store’ key will be deactivated, only
logged readings can be stored.
6.3.2
Peak Reading
The operator can toggle the reading mode between normal (current) and peak readings.
While in peak reading mode the instrument will only display peak values for each of the
channels. These values can then be stored by pressing the ‘Store’ key or automatically at
the appropriate logging interval (if logging is enabled).
The peak value is reset after a reading is stored or by exiting the peak mode using the
appropriate soft-key. The current mode of operation can be identified by the status of
the soft-key, either ‘Normal’ or ‘Inverse’, where inverse indicates peak mode is active.

GOMORIGIO1.1
Hold Reading
The ‘Hold Reading’ option allows the user to freeze the currently displayed reading. This
allows it to be manually recorded or moved away from the sample point. Once activated,
press the soft-key ‘Hold’ and the readings are fixed until the ‘Hold’ key is pressed again
or by storing the reading.
The current mode of operation can be identified by the status of the soft-key which is
inversed while in the hold phase.

Calibration
7.1
User Calibration
The G100 range of instruments are fully calibrated during manufacture and when returned
for service. However, to improve accuracy between services a user/field calibration can be
performed.
This section sets out the correct procedures to achieve an accurate user calibration.
 Note: If the calibration is completed incorrectly it may decrease the accuracy of the
instrument.
Two important terms that are used within this section are “Zero” and “Span”.
Zero:
The point at which the instrument is calibrated when there is none of the target
gas present.
Span:
The point at which the instrument is calibrated when a known quantity of the
target gas is present.
7.2
Calibration Gases
User calibration of the instrument will improve the data accuracy in the range of the
calibration gases used. However, it may cause less accurate readings of concentrations
outside this calibrated range. Users should select the correct calibration gas for the
expected gas levels on their particular application. Only use gases with a known certified
gas concentration.
Warning
7.3
For each gas used the appropriate material safety data sheet
must be read and understood before proceeding. Calibration
gases and the use of pressure regulators can be dangerous.
Calibration Set-up
The regulator supplied with the calibration kit has been configured to deliver a fixed flow.
It only requires a few turns to open and no adjustment is necessary.
Warning
Exhaust Port
When the instrument is being calibrated, there are two possible
exits for the gas; via the usual manner out of the exhaust port of
the instrument or in cases of over-pressurisation the 1/16” port
on the pressure relief valve.
It is recommended that both ports have exhaust tubing
attached. The exhaust tubing must exit in a well-vented area.
Ensure there are no leaks in the tubing and connections.
The calibration should always be carried out in a safe area with
all necessary precautions taken as all pressurised gases are
potentially dangerous.

GOMORIGIO1.1
Zero CO2 Channel:
For maximum accuracy it is recommended that the CO2 Channel is zeroed using bottled
gas (certified 100% N2). However, if nitrogen gas is not available the optional soda lime
filter kit can be fitted to the gas inlet. This allows the user to perform a zero using normal
air as the soda lime filter will absorb virtually all CO2 from the sample air. For both these
options select 'Key 1-Zero with N2' from the user calibration menu.
If neither of the recommended methods is available the user can select the option to
perform an air calibration. This option assumes that the user has access to fresh air at
around 390ppm. Generally, this can be found outside or in a well ventilated corridor
(typically, an office or lab would have a higher CO2 concentration).
1)
From the ‘Calibration’ Menu, press ‘Key 2 - CO2 channel’.
User Calibration
2)
Press either ‘Key 1 - Zero with N2’ (recommended) or ‘Key 2 - Zero with Air’ from
the menu. Then, either attach the 100% N2 or sample pipe to allow access to fresh
air.
3)
Ensure the zero gas has flowed and is stable.
4)
Press the ‘Start’ key. The instrument will now wait (approximately 60 seconds) for
the gas reading to stabilise at the correct level. If zeroing with air press the ‘Pump’
key to draw in fresh air.
5)
The instrument will then indicate a successful zero has been completed. Press the
soft-key ‘Accept’ to confirm the calibration and ‘Store’ the new user offset.
Alternatively, soft-key ‘Reject’ to exit without change.
 Note:
If the calibration failed then purge and try again or select a different air
source.
If using G110 – very high concentrations of CO2 may take up to 30
minutes to purge completely.
7.5.2
Span CO2 Channel:
It is recommended that the instrument is spanned to target the desired reading range
(e.g. 5%); ideally this should not be a low level close to zero.
1)
If not already preset, enter the span target, i.e. certified concentration of your
calibration gas. Press ‘Key 1’ and enter the new value. Then attach the gas and
open regulator valve to allow the gas to flow.
2)
Press the ‘Start’ key and wait for the reading to stabilise. This can take a couple of
minutes. Press the ‘Pump’ key to draw sample gas.

Once a stable reading is shown press the soft-key ‘Accept’. A successful span
calibration message will then be displayed. Press the soft-key ‘Accept’ again to
confirm the calibration and ‘Store’ the new user span. Alternatively, press soft-key
‘Reject’ to exit without change.
 Note: If the calibration failed then try again using a longer purge time or
different target gas.
7.5.3
Zero O2 Channel:
It is not required to zero the O2 channel. A span calibration corrects the reading across
the whole range.
7.5.4
Span O2 Channel:
It is recommended that the O2 channel is spanned in fresh air with a target concentration
of 20.9%, although other gases and target concentrations can be used if required.
1)
If not already preset, enter the span target, i.e. certified concentration of your
calibration gas. To change the span target press ‘key1’ and enter the new value.
2)
Press the soft-key ‘Start’ and wait for the reading to stabilise. Press the ‘Pump’ key
to draw in fresh air. It can take a couple of minutes to stabilize.
3)
Once a stable reading is shown press the soft-key ‘Accept’. A successful span
calibration message should then be displayed. Press the soft-key ‘Accept’ again to

Problem Solving
This section outlines various warning and error messages which the operator may receive
during general operation of the instrument. For further information, please contact ORIGIO
Sales at [email protected] or Customer Service +45 46 79 02 02.
8.1
Warnings and Errors
When switched on the instrument will perform a predetermined self-test sequence taking
approximately 15 seconds. During this time many of the instrument’s working parameters
and settings are checked.
If any operational parameters are out of specification or if the pre-programmed
recommended calibration/service date has passed, errors or warnings may be displayed.
Use the ‘Scroll Up’ and ‘Scroll Down’ keys to move through the list if required.
There are two types of warning that may be displayed:

General warnings that may not affect the instrument’s function and those where the
self-test has detected a function that is outside the usual operating criteria, e.g.
battery charge low, memory nearly full.

Operational parameters that could affect the performance of the instrument, e.g. CO2
out of calibration.
The most likely reason for these errors is either an incorrect user calibration, or may
indicate sensor failure. If an incorrect user calibration has caused the warning it should be
correctable by way of returning the instrument to factory settings, zeroing or carrying out
a user calibration as necessary for the relevant function.
Under and Over Range Codes
If a reading is over range (i.e. above the maximum allowed reading) it will be displayed
with more than chevrons (>>.>). This can occur if a channel has been incorrectly
calibrated or the sample gas has exceeded its specified range (e.g. CO2 > 20%).
If a reading is under range (i.e. below zero) it will be displayed with less than chevrons
(<<. <). Refer to section ‘7.0 Calibration’ of this manual to remedy under-range by
performing a user zero.
A number displayed as asterisks (**.*) indicates an error, usually where the instrument
has been unable to complete a particular calculation. Typically, this will be the first
indication of a fault condition.
Where no data is available dashes (--.-) are displayed. This usually occurs when a
particular reading or parameter has been skipped by the user, or where an optional
accessory is not fitted correctly, i.e. a temperature probe.
8.2
Flow Fail Warning
A common error is a premature flow fail. This is caused by a blocked or flooded inlet filter.
However, new instruments can go into flow fail prematurely as the pump loosens up over
the first few days of use. For further information, please refer to ‘section 5.9.2.5 Flow
Fail’.

compensate for minor changes in the performance of the pump
fitted to the instrument.
Check CO2
Cal.
This warning is most commonly caused by an incorrect user
calibration. Try recalibrating the sensor or press ‘Return to
factory settings’. If the warning persists it may be caused by dirt
or damage to the infrared sensor. The instrument will need to be
returned to the manufacturer for service/repair.
Check O2 Cal.

calibrated. For optimal performance and accuracy it is
recommended that the instrument is user calibrated each time it
is used.
Invalid Time
The instrument has an invalid time. This is most likely to occur
after a reset. The correct time should be entered using the set
‘Time & Date’ option via the ‘Utilities’ menu.
Invalid Date
The instrument has an invalid date. This is most likely to occur
after a reset. The correct date should be entered using the set
‘Time & Date’ option via the ‘Utilities’ menu.
Baro. Fault
The instrument has detected a fault with the barometric sensor
or its calibration. This will have an effect on the accuracy of the
readings as they are pressure compensated. The instrument will
need to be returned to the manufacturer for service.
 Note: *Certain configuration problems can be corrected remotely. Using the Analyzer
Data Manager software, it is possible to export the current configuration and email it to the manufacturer’s Technical Support or Service Department.
Depending on the type of error it may be possible to correct the configuration file
and import it back into the instrument.

User Calibration Trouble Shooting
Error
Remedy
User Zero failed
A possible reason for this is because the instrument is trying to
zero to a level which is outside the predetermined range set when
the unit was calibrated at the factory or; the gas is not stable i.e.
is still flushing the measure gas or is using ambient air/gas that is
varying in concentration. To rectify this, first ensure the unit
contains absolutely none of the gas which is being zeroed by
flushing thoroughly with nitrogen. If it will not zero, then refer to
the instructions given in the ‘Factory Settings’ section. If the
instrument continues to fail to zero then the unit must be returned
to the manufacturer for investigation.
Calibration failed
Check the span target is set to the correct value, if not, correct
and retry spanning the channel. Repeat the entire procedure,
including zeroing the channel and then calibrate the span. Ensure
the reading is stable before spanning the channel.

User calibration is a means of optimizing the performance of the instrument to the current
operating conditions such as ambient temperature and pressure as well as correcting for
instrument drift caused by lamp and filter settling.
In general, the instrument should not require calibration more than once a month, but we
do recommend verifying the instruments operation each day.
User calibration has two operations and each may be performed individually, however for a
complete user calibration both must be completed.
Factory Calibration (Curve 1)
The G100 instruments are ‘Factory’ calibrated and stable.
Zero Calibration (Curve 2)
This corrects the entire curve for lamp and filter variations caused by aging and user
induced drift due to dirt etc. If done correctly there is often no need to complete a span
calibration. However a poor calibration[A] will result in a span error as shown with the zero
indicating a small error [B] but a significant span error [C].
 Note:
The Zero calibration is very sensitive and even 100% instruments will detect in
the 0 to 100ppm range even though they do not display to this resolution. Please
refer to the chart ‘Typical Zero Gas Purge Time’.
Span Calibration (Curve 3)
This optimizes the instrument at the span calibration concentration [D] for the current
operational conditions and variations in user calibration gasses. It corrects the span point
leaving the zero unadjusted and should be done at the concentration of normal operation.

Typical Calibration Purge Times
Typical zero calibration although displaying zero needs to be given time to settle. We
recommend commencing the calibration at least five minutes after the display concentration
stabilizes.
 Note:
If using G110 – very high concentrations of CO2 may take up to 30 minutes to
purge completely.

Cross-Gas Effects
Carbon dioxide is measured by infrared absorption at a wavelength specific to carbon
dioxide. Therefore, the carbon dioxide reading will not be affected by any other gases. The
oxygen sensor is a galvanic cell type and suffers virtually no influence from CO2, CO, H2S,
NO2, SO2 or H2, unlike many other types of oxygen cell.
8.6
Error Due to CO2 Solubility in Water
Due to the water trap and filter it is possible that some of the CO2 in the sample gas will be
absorbed in to any trapped water.
8.7
Hardware Reset
If for any reason the instrument ‘locks up’ and will not switch off, it is possible to force a
hardware reset. Press and hold the ‘On/Off’ key for 10 seconds; wait at least 15 seconds
and the instrument should restart automatically.
 Note: Performing a hardware reset may cause loss or corruption of currently stored
data including the time/date.
