Guidelines on How to Measure Ozone
•
The following information is presented to help users operate their
Aeroqual Ozone Monitor in the most effective and efficient manner.
•
Use the max/min/average measurement cycle feature of the
Aeroqual Ozone Monitor (see the “About Your Monitor” section)
to take a time averaged measurement.
Holding the monitor while sampling may result in false readings
due to your presence causing a reduction in ozone
concentration.
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.
False Readings
•
•
Permanent Monitor Placement
•
•
•
•
The Aeroqual Ozone Monitor has been designed to measure
the ambient concentration of ozone employing active
sampling. The monitor must not be placed directly in an ozone
stream.
For indoor local area monitoring attach the monitor to an inert
fixture such as a metal post or rack with the inlet facing
generally towards the centre of the room.
For leak detection mount the unit near the ozone equipment.
Ensure that the monitor is protected from water splashes, dust,
vibration, excessive heat or cold and excessive swings in
humidity.
Calibration
•
•
•
•
Spot Ozone Measurements
•
•
Since ozone concentrations can change rapidly, it is wise to
take a time averaged measurement.
Place the monitor on a flat surface with the inlet towards the
centre of the room.
7
The Aeroqual Ozone Monitor 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.
Ozone will react with and decompose on organic substances.
The presence of human beings may reduce the local ozone
concentration.
•
The sensor head is calibrated prior to delivery.
The Aeroqual Ozone Monitor has been designed so that it does
not normally require re-calibration for the life of the sensor
head.
The Aeroqual Ozone Monitor comes with built in diagnostics
which will alert the user if the sensor is not operating correctly.
Environmental conditions such as dust, high humidity,
vibration, chemicals and heat or cold as well as high
concentrations of ozone may degrade the sensor performance
and shorten the sensor life. Please ask your local dealer or
contact Aeroqual at; [email protected] about your
application if you are in doubt.
In applications where the ozone concentration needs to be
controlled very closely and the operating environment is
particularly harsh, it is recommended that the sensor head be
replaced more frequently. Please contact Aeroqual or your
local representative if in doubt.
8
About Your Monitor
The Aeroqual Series 300 and 500 Ozone Monitors have been
specifically designed to incorporate Aeroqual’s in-depth knowledge of
accurate ambient ozone measurement. Different sensor heads are used
depending upon whether high or low ozone concentrations are to be
measured. The low, high and leak sensor heads are interchangeable on
the same base unit.
The following information details the operation and features of the
monitors:
1. The ozone monitors are modular in design and are comprised of two
main components, a Series 300 or 500 monitor, and a high or low
concentration or leak detector ozone 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 High Concentration Ozone Sensor Head is designed to
measure ozone concentrations from 0.50 to 20.00 ppm and is
accurate to within 10% between 0.50ppm and 2.00ppm and 15%
between 2.00ppm and 20ppm. The T90 response time (i.e. the time
to reach 90% of the actual ozone concentration) of the high
concentration sensor head is 40 seconds. While the sensor will read
higher concentrations, exposure of this sensor head to ozone
concentrations higher than 20.00 ppm may adversely affect the
calibration.
3. The Low Concentration Ozone Sensor Head is designed to
measure ozone concentrations from 0.000 to 0.500 ppm with an
accuracy of +/-0.010 ppm from 0 to 0.100 ppm and 10% from 0.100
to 0.500 ppm and has a resolution of 0.001 ppm. The T90 response
time (i.e. the time to reach 90% of the actual ozone concentration) of
the low concentration sensor head is 95 seconds.
While the sensor will read higher concentrations, exposure of this
sensor head to ozone concentrations higher than 0.500 ppm may
adversely affect the calibration.
4. The Ozone Leak Detector Sensor Head helps to locate the source
of ozone leaks in process equipment. It is designed to measure
ozone concentrations up to 50 ppm with an accuracy of ±20%, 15
seconds after Reset. Refer to the separate User Guide.
5. The sensor head is calibrated prior to delivery and does not normally
need to be re-calibrated during its life.
6. Both Aeroqual Series 300 and 500 Monitors come with in-built
diagnostics, which will inform the user if the sensor is not operating
correctly.
9
7. Both the Series 300 and 500 Monitors offer the following features (not
available with leak head):
I. 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.
II. 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.
III. Control. This enables external equipment to be controlled by the
ozone monitor using the high and low control settings, which can be
used to control an external device such as an ozone generator.
V. Ozone unit selection. The ozone concentration can be displayed in
3
either ppm or mg/m .
V. Max/min/average measurement cycle. This enables the user to
carry out spot measurements of ozone as described in the
“Guidelines on How to Measure Ozone” section. The monitor will
display the maximum, minimum and average ozone concentrations
over the measurement period. The measurement cycle is based on
30 readings, so once the cycle has been running for 30 readings the
displayed readings will be based on a rolling 30 reading average.
VI. 0-5V Analogue signal. A proportional voltage output is available from
the external output. The voltage relates to the Ozone concentration,
with 0 V representing 0.000 ppm and 5 V representing 0.500 ppm for
the Low Concentration Sensor Head and 0 V representing 0 ppm and
5 V representing 20.00 ppm for the High Concentration Sensor Head.
The Series 500 Monitors offer the following additional features:
Data logging (on either the Series 500 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.
II. 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 the unit was data
logging at the time power was lost.
II. PC setup of monitor parameters. All the monitor parameters, i.e.
clock setup, alarm setup, external control setup, logging setup and
I.

pack and carefully lever the battery pack out from the retaining
clips.
Unclip the connector from the monitor.
Replace the battery cover.
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 as per the instructions
on page 44 of this user manual and on the battery pack.
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. A reading will be shown flashing
during the last 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. The monitor should be
run for 24 hours prior to use if it has been switched off for more
than 7 days.
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.
Monitor and Sensor Versions
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 that 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.
Turning the monitor on will display “AEROQUAL MONITOR
V x.x”, where "V x.x" represents the version of the monitor base.
The display will then show “SVXX” which indicates the software
version installed on the sensor head.
To switch to GND use pins 4, 5 and 6. For a 12V output wire to
pins 4, 5 and 1 (see diagram on page 15 for typical wiring for high
alarm). This feature will only operate while powered by the AC
adaptor. The factory default settings are 0.100ppm and 0.300ppm.

Wiring for control
The control pin can be wired to supply control of an ozone
generator where it is necessary to operate the ozone generator
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:
Upper limit – 0.100 ppm
Lower limit – 0.300 ppm
To switch to GND use pins 3 and 6. For a 12V output wire to pins 3
and 1 (see diagram on page 16 for typical wiring). This feature will
only operate while powered by the AC adaptor.
Wiring the 0-5 V analogue output (wire between Pins 2 & 6)
*500 Monitor only
The 0 to 5 V signal is a proportional signal based on the
concentration of ozone.
For the low concentration sensor head 0 V represents 0 ppm
Ozone and 5 V represents 0.500 ppm Ozone.
For the high concentration sensor head 0 V represents 0 ppm
Ozone and 5 V represents 20.00 ppm Ozone.
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.

Battery Information
Charging and Discharging the Batteries
•
Rechargeable Batteries
The optional Ni-MH (Nickel Metal Hydride) battery pack is used to
power the Ozone monitor as a portable unit. Please read the
following information carefully before using the battery pack to
operate the Aeroqual Ozone monitor.
•
Safety
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Do not use the battery pack for any other purpose than
operating the Aeroqual Ozone monitor
Do not disassemble or mutilate the batteries as this may cause
burns
Do not incinerate or heat as this may cause burns, the batteries
may burst or cause the release of toxic materials
Do not short circuit as this may cause burns
Use only batteries approved by Aeroqual and recharge your
battery only with the AC/DC adaptors supplied by Aeroqual.
Never use any charger or battery that is damaged or worn out.
Batteries must be recycled or disposed of properly. They must
not be disposed of in municipal waste.
Never charge a Ni-MH in a hermitically sealed container.
•
•
•
New Ni-MH batteries must be fully charged prior to 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 7 hours.
The batteries must be charged with the unit in either
Standby mode or Switched Off. While switched off, the
unit will charge in approximately 20 hours. If the unit is to
be used regularly as a portable unit we recommend that
the batteries are charged in Standby mode so that the
sensor is kept warm and ready for use.
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 300 or 500 Series 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.
Using the battery pack
The life of the battery pack will be affected by the way it is handled.
Take good care of the battery pack and follow the guidelines
suggested in the following section.
