Functional
Overview
All 800# models of the RLDS come with the number
of line-end filters (plus one extra) to match the number of zones for each model.
2.1. General Description
Refrigerant monitors are specified to support compliance to federal, state and local safety codes governing refrigerant emissions. Avoiding significant
refrigerant loss reduces equipment replacement costs,
maintains equipment efficiency, promotes safety, and
protects the environment.
The RLDS provides for the continuous monitoring
of refrigerant gas levels in up to 16 separate test zones
or channels. The instrument is easily programmed to
monitor a variety of gases and independent leak
(small), spill (medium), and evacuation (large) levels
may be designated for each zone. The instrument also
retains a log of previous readings that can be easily
accessed for analysis.
Figure 2-1 - RLDS Front View
2.2. Communication
Options
An audible alarm and front panel indicators are
provided to signal alarm and fault conditions, and relay contacts are provided that can be used to trigger
external alarm devices in the event of a system fault,
or if a leak (small), spill (medium), or evacuation
(large) level of gas is detected. The system also may
be fitted with an optional two-channel 4-20mA current loop board for connection to remote monitoring
equipment.
The RLDS features full two-way communications
via an RS485 interface. MODBUS RTU is the communication protocol standard and can be connected
directly to an E2, Einstein, or REFLECS controller.
The RLDS requires only minor periodic maintenance such as the occasional replacement of filters.
The monitor incorporates active diagnostics that continuously monitor the system for proper operation. A
front panel indicator is provided to alert an operator of
system malfunctions, and fault codes are generated
that enable the user to identify the cause of the fault.
2.3. Understanding
Monitoring Levels
Please refer to Section 4, Connecting Communication Devices for a more complete discussion of communication protocols.
Effective use of this instrument requires an understanding of what constitutes reasonable alarm setpoints for the type of gases being monitored.
All AC&R systems leak some refrigerant. Refrigerant manufacturers define allowable exposure levels
and threshold limit values in units of parts per million
(PPM). In a good “tight” installation these background levels will be acceptably low and often do not
require corrective action. You can reduce nuisance
alarms and needless service calls if the alarm levels
are set at practical limits.
General Description
Functional Overview • 3
Recommended monitoring levels based on compliance to ANSI/BSR ASHRAE 15-2007 and
ASHRAE Safety Code 34-2007 have been developed
and are listed in Table 8-1 and Section 6, RLDS Hardware Specifications.
Setting the unit at these recommended alarm levels
will satisfy the needs of most users. However, the
PPM levels generated by system leaks into the environment are greatly influenced by the volume of air in
the sampling area, air circulation, size of the leak, distance to the monitoring point, and a host of other variables. In some cases the set points may need to be
adjusted either up or down to achieve effective monitoring. Please contact your representative (770-4252724) for assistance in obtaining these levels.
2.4. Response to the
Presence of Multiple
Refrigerants
The RLDS is a refrigerant level monitor, not a gas
analyzer. You must program the monitor to test for a
specific refrigerant in each zone, and it will only return accurate concentration readings for that particular refrigerant. If a leak occurs of another refrigerant
gas type, the monitor may return false readings.
Most applications only require detection of a single refrigerant and the problems that are associated
with monitoring multiple gases are rarely an issue. If
there is a possibility of multiple refrigerants leaking in
the same sampling zone, you should consider carefully which refrigerant compound you program the unit
to monitor, or make system design considerations to
cover this event. Please consult your sales engineer
for assistance in setting up the RLDS system to cover
this event.
2.5. Suggested Location of
Sampling Points
line is not at the exact point of the refrigerant leak, the
unit will read a diluted mixture of the refrigerant gas
and air and may require adjustment of alarm levels.
The farther away an RLDS sample point is from a
refrigerant leak, the longer it will take to detect the
leak, and the lower the concentration of refrigerant in
the air will be; therefore, place the termination of the
collection line as near as possible to the point where
refrigerant leaks are the most likely.
It should also be noted that refrigerant gas is heavier than air and tends to collect below the point of a
leak; therefore, samples taken near the floor will have
a greater concentration of gas than those collected
above the source of a leak; therefore, sampling points
should ideally be located as close as possible to the
source of potential leaks. If this is impractical, then
the alarm setpoints should be adjusted for that zone to
compensate for the dilution of the refrigerant gas.
Line-end filters should be mounted 12”
(30 cm) to 18” (45 cm) above the floor. DO NOT
block any of the zones. Unused zones may be disabled
by setting the distance parameter to zero feet in the
zone setup screen.
The RLDS should be centrally located in the mechanical room and be readily accessible for easy visual monitoring and servicing. The combined length of
sample tubing, plus exhaust tubing, should not exceed
1200 feet (365 meters) for any zone. The fresh air
purge line should draw from an area that does not contain any refrigerant gas. The exhaust line should run
to an outside location if possible. The combined
length of the purge line and the exhaust line cannot
exceed 300 feet (91 meters).
Ideally, two to three pick up points spaced around
each chiller will provide sufficient coverage. It may
be necessary to perform a “smoke” test of the mechanical room to determine the best locations. The
smoke test would provide the pattern of air currents
present in the mechanical room.
NOTE: For information about using the
RLDS in wet locations, see Section 3.3.6., Considerations.
At the point of origin of a refrigerant leak, the gas
is highly concentrated. As the refrigerant is dispersed
into the air, the gas molecules diffuse, causing a dilution of the original concentration. The RLDS measures the refrigerant concentration at the sample
collection point, so if the termination of the collection

Considerations
3.1.1. Warnings and Cautions
WARNING: Explosion hazard! Do not mount
or operate this equipment in an area that may
contain or in the presence of flammable liquids, vapors, or aerosols. Operation of any electrical
equipment in such an environment constitutes a safety
hazard.
WARNING: Drilling holes in the RLDS enclosure may damage the unit and will void the
warranty. Please use the knockouts provided
for electrical connections.
6 • RLDS I&O Manual
The RLDS has been thoroughly inspected and tested prior to shipment from the factory. Nevertheless, it
is recommended that the monitor be re-checked prior
to installation. Inspect the outside of the enclosure to
make sure there are no obvious signs of shipping damage. Open the enclosure and inspect the interior of the
unit for loose components that may have become dislodged during shipment. If damage is discovered,
please contact Technical Support for assistance (770425-2724).
3.1.3. Monitor Location
The RLDS should be centrally located in the facility and should be easily accessible for visual monitoring and servicing. Intake sample lines can be up to
1200 feet (365 meters), but it is important to remember that sampling cycle time is proportional to the total number and length of individual sample lines.
Dirt, grease, and oils can adversely affect the operation of the RLDS. The monitor should be installed
out of direct sunlight in a clean, dry area that is not
subject to temperature or humidity extremes. Installation of the monitor in a mechanical room is acceptable
provided reasonable environmental conditions exist.
If there is a question, consider installing the unit outside of the mechanical room in a cleaner area of the
facility. The location should allow the monitor to be
easily accessible for visual monitoring and servicing.
3.2. RLDS Mounting
Instructions
3.2.1. Screw Locations
The RLDS should be installed plumb and level
and securely fastened to a rigid mounting surface. The
enclosure utilizes keyhole mounting brackets designed for 1/4” (6.35 mm) fasteners. Locate the four
026-1309 Rev 7 24-MAR-2014
screws as shown in the diagram below and allow the
screw heads to protrude approximately 1/4” (6.35
mm).
closure, are indicated in Figure 3-3.
Figure 3-2 - RLDS Mounting Dimensions
3.2.2. Installation
Hold the monitor flat against the mounting surface
and allow it to slide down, engaging the screw heads
in the keyhole slots of the mounting brackets. Adjust
the screws as necessary to hold the monitor securely
against the mounting surface.
3.3. RLDS - Connecting Air
Lines
3.3.1. Overview
Individual sample lines are run from the RLDS to
each area of the facility to be monitored. Additionally,
a purge line is installed to provide clean air for resetting the infrared zero baseline. An exhaust line is installed to vent residual gas away from the monitor. All
air line connections, located on the left side of the en-
Figure 3-3 - RLDS (Tubing Connections)
3.3.2. Tubing Considerations
Use 1/4” (6.35 mm) outside diameter (0.04” wall)
(1.02 mm wall) flex tubing for all air lines or equivalent. The tubing should be clean and free of residual
moisture or other contaminants. The tubing should be
cut cleanly with a sharp knife and care should be taken not to distort the tubing end.
To connect the air lines to the monitor simply push
the tubing firmly onto the connector. To remove a
line, depress the plastic ring on the connector with one
hand while withdrawing the tube with your other
hand. All tubing bends should have a radius of no less
than 5” (12 cm) to ensure proper airflow. If kinks or
obstructions occur in any of the air lines, the instrument may not function properly.
3.3.3. Connecting Purge Line
A purge line is required to draw fresh air into the
instrument and should not exceed 300 feet (91 meters)
in length. A charcoal filter assembly has been provid-
RLDS - Connecting Air Lines
RLDS Installation • 7
ed to ensure clean air is being drawn in through the
purge line. This filter should be mounted close to the
RLDS.
It is advisable to terminate the purge line outdoors,
provided the input is not exposed to rain, snow, ice,
exhaust fumes, or other airborne contaminates. If an
outdoor installation is impractical, the line should be
run to an area inside the facility that you are certain is
not contaminated with ambient refrigerant gas.
A line-end filter should be attached to the end of
the purge line. If this is not possible, an optional charcoal filter assembly (P/N 275-0275) can be used to filter refrigerant from the purge line, and may be
mounted adjacent to the monitor. A line-end filter assembly (P/N 275-0300) should be attached to the end
of the purge line when the charcoal filter is not used.
CAUTION: (CO2 Only): Because CO2 is present in ambient air, the purge line MUST BE
run outside, away from any known sources of
CO2 gas. An atmospheric CO2 concentration
value can be manually entered by the user in the CAL
screen. CO2 is supported by RLDS-CO2 units. See Section 8.9.4. CO2 Atmospheric Concentration (RLDSCO2 Units Only).
3.3.4. Connecting Exhaust Line
An exhaust line (¼” OD tubing) (6.35 mm) can be
used when it is required to vent gas samples away
from the instrument and should not exceed 300 feet
(91 meters). The exhaust line should terminate in a location that is completely isolated from the purge line
termination point and other areas of the facility that
will be monitored. Ideally this line should terminate
outdoors in a location that is not exposed to the elements. This line does not require a line-end filter. If
the exhaust line terminates outside the building, position the tubing so that no water or moisture can enter
it.
3.3.5. Connecting Sample Intake
Lines
Sample intake lines can be up to 1200 feet (365
meters) when no exhaust tubing is used. Otherwise,
the combined length of the sample line and the exhaust line cannot exceed 1200 feet (365 meters). All
line terminations should be positioned to reduce the
possibility of mists, aerosols, oil, water, dust, or other
contaminates being drawn into the instrument. A lineend filter (included) should be attached to the end of
each sample intake line. Line-end filters should be
placed 12” to 18” (30 to 45 cm) above the floor.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT block any of the zones.
Unused zones may be disabled by setting their length
parameter to zero feet in the Zone Setup screen (Section 8.2., The Zone Screen).
Please refer to the earlier section (Section 2.5.,
Suggested Location of Sampling Points) to learn more
about where to locate the monitoring points.
CAUTION: The introduction of contaminants
through the air intake lines can result in serious and permanent damage to the monitor.
3.3.6. Considerations
For maximum protection, the RLDS may be shut
down when a System Fault occurs. This might be desired, for example, when the RLDS is used in wet locations such as meat preparation rooms. When water
is pulled into the system, a System Fault will occur,
closing the fault relay located at the bottom of the
main control board. To turn power off to the RLDS
when this occurs, wire the fault relay into a spare
16AI input. Route the power supply to the RLDS
through an 8RO output using the normally closed
contacts. Program the E2/Einstein to alarm the fault
input on a contact closure and turn on the 8RO output
when this occurs. This can be done using a Digital
Sensor Control application in the E2/Einstein. Refer
to the E2 Installation and Operation manual (P/N 0261610) for details on setting up a Digital Sensor Control application.
The RLDS is designed to accommodate up to 16
separate sample intake lines. The standard configuration of the unit includes one manifold of four intake
connectors and one purge connector. Additional manifolds can be easily installed to increase monitoring
capacity. Please contact Technical Assistance (770425-2724) for more information.

3.4. Splitter Kits
3.4.1. Overview
Two-way splitter (P/N 275-0304) and three-way
splitter (P/N 275-0305) kits for a zone are used with
the RLDS to allow you to pinpoint critical points of
the refrigeration system, and allow further monitoring
in small spaces with a high probability for leakage.
Splitter kits allow you to place more sensors in each
zone, which enable potential leaks to be detected
more quickly.
CAUTION: Keep pick-up tube the same length
to create the averaging effect of the splitter system. Point the filter vertically downward or
horizontally with a slight downward tilt to
avoid moisture collecting in the filter from condensation.
Figure 3-6 - Improper Wire Length of a Two-way Splitter
The alarm setpoint must be changed due to the averaging effect of the splitter system. The pick-up lines
for the splitter tube must be the same length from the
splitter to each of the end-of-line filters to balance the
splitter system and create the averaging effect.
Figure 3-4 - Types of Splitter Kits
3.4.2. Installation
Sensors can be installed on walls, drains, or areas
with potential air flow. Any ¼” tubing can be used to
configure the two or three point sensors.
A two-way splitter kit requires reduction of the
original alarm setpoint by ½ so the setpoint becomes
half of the original value. A three-way splitter kit requires reduction of the original setpoint by ⅓ so the
setpoint becomes a third of the original value.
For example, if the alarm setpoint alarm value is
1000, with a two-way splitter the value becomes 500
ppm. With a three-way splitter the value becomes 333
ppm.

3.6. RLDS Electrical Wiring
The RLDS uses a universal power supply that is
capable of accepting inputs of 100 to 240 VAC, 50/60
Hz. The monitor's power consumption is 20 Watts. It
is highly recommended that the monitor be connected
directly to the AC power source, preferably on its own
circuit. The AC power connection should be completed with UL approved 3-conductor wire (minimum 16
AWG), rated 300 VAC at 221°F (105°C).
Locate a convenient service knockout and install
electrical conduit in the typical manner.
Locate the AC Input Terminals and Ground Stud
on the inside of the monitor (Figure 3-7). Secure the
incoming AC power neutral (white/blue) and live
(black/brown) wires to the LINE 1 and LINE 2 terminals.
Using the supplied crimp-on ring terminals, washers, and nuts, connect the incoming AC power ground
wire (green) to the monitor's AC input ground stud,
and then install a separate wire between the ground
stud and the GND terminal.

3.6.1. Warnings and Cautions
WARNING: Electrical installation should be
performed by a certified electrician and must
comply with all applicable local, state, and
federal electrical safety codes.
WARNING: Under no circumstances should
this instrument be operated without connection
to a protective ground. The AC power ground
wire must first be connected to the monitor's ground
stud. Doing so poses a potential shock hazard and is
also a violation of electrical safety standards applicable
to this type of equipment.
WARNING: Copper conductors for connection to supply mains must be made in accordance with NEC/CEC and local codes.
WARNING: Drilling holes in the RLDS enclosure may damage the unit and will void the
warranty. Only use the knockouts provided for

The RLDS may be connected to a Emerson Retail
Solutions controller using a Gateway Board. The
Gateway Board is a special interface device that allows an E2, Einstein, or REFLECS site controller to
communicate with up to three RLDS units as if each
of them were a standard 16AI Analog Input board,
and allows for programming with the Hand-Held Terminal (HHT).
The Gateway Board communicates with the
RLDS units via the MODBUS network, which is connected to the Gateway’s “Receiver Bus” network terminal. The Gateway communicates with site
controllers (E2, Einstein, or REFLECS) via the
RS485 I/O Network (COM A & COM D for REFLECS).

4.2.2.1. Changing Terminator Switch
Settings
4.2.3. Connecting to an E2, Einstein,
or REFLECS Site Controller
The terminator switch is shipped from the factory
in the terminated or DOWN position. This is the correct setting if the RLDS is connected to a single device, or it is the last device on the network chain. If the
RLDS is to be installed in the middle of a network, the
terminator must be moved to the UP position. Locate
switch 4 and determine its position. If it needs to be
moved, slide the switch to the appropriate position.
Up to three RLDS units may be connected to a site
controller via the Gateway Board. The node address
switch on each RLDS must be set in succession from
1 to 3 in order for the Gateway Board to recognize the
units on the network.
Figure 4-10 - Positioning the Termination Switch - RLDS
4.2.2.2. RLDS Node Address
The node address is set through the front display of
the RLDS unit. Refer to Section 7.16., Node Address
for more information.
Figure 4-11 - RLDS Units Connected to Gateway, Site Controller
NOTE: If connecting RLDS units to a Emerson Retail Solutions site controller network,
you MUST number the units from 1-3. The
Gateway Board will not recognize any RLDS
unit with a number that is not 1, 2, or 3.
Termination
The three RLDS units and the Gateway Board are
connected serially via MODBUS. If an RLDS is at the
end of the network segment, terminate the unit by setting the termination switch to the DOWN position.
Otherwise, set the termination switch to the UP position to leave the unit unterminated.

meters).
4.2.4. Connecting the Gateway
Board to the E2, Einstein, or
REFLECS Network
Each E2, Einstein, or REFLECS site controller
that will communicate with one or more RLDS must
have a Gateway Board installed on its RS485 I/O Network. For E2 and Einstein controllers, this means the
Gateway will be installed on the RS485 I/O Network;
for RMCC, BEC, BCU, and other REFLECS products, the Gateway will be installed on the COM A or
COM D network.
4.2.4.1. Wire Connection
Using shielded three-conductor network cable
(Belden #8641 or equivalent), connect the RS485 I/O
Network wire to the three-terminal connector on the
Gateway board as shown in Figure 4-13. For further
information about how RS485 networks are configured, refer to your site controller’s user manual.
18 • RLDS I&O Manual
The first step is to determine whether the RLDS
Gateway should emulate 16AI boards – known as the
REFLECS mode, or if the RLDS Gateway should emulate IRLDS units in Einstein/E2 – known as the Einstein mode. When dip switch 8 is in the ON position
it selects the REFLECS mode, and when dip switch 8
is in the OFF position it selects the Einstein mode.
REFLECS Mode
In the REFLECS mode the Gateway board responds as a series of three 16AI Analog Input boards
numbered in succession. Addressing the “boards”
represented by the Gateway is achieved by setting dip
switches 1 through 4 to the first board number to be
used. When this number is set, the Gateway will also
use the next two board numbers above the first board
number. For example, if a Gateway dip switch is set
to board number 3, the Gateway will use board numbers 3, 4, and 5 on the I/O Network.
Once the RLDS Gateway has been added to the
network, the I/O Board Device Numbers screen in
REFLECS (from the REFLECS Home screen press
7,7,2) will also need to be adjusted to show the correct
number of input boards. This number should be the
total number of input boards plus the number of
RLDS units.
Since the RLDS Gateway can support up to three
(3) RLDS units, the first RLDS unit maps to the first
RLDS Gateway address, and the second RLDS unit
maps to the second RLDS Gateway address; therefore, if the RLDS Gateway address = 3, then RLDS
unit #1 will appear on 16AI #3 and so forth.
026-1309 Rev 7 24-MAR-2014
If you are not using all three RLDS units, you can
disable them on the Gateway (see Section 11.2.,
RLDS Enable Screen). If they are disabled on the
RLDS Gateway, then the corresponding addresses are
free to be used by other 16AI boards.
trollers. IRLDS units 1 and 2 would map to the
IRLDS II Gateway and the third IRLDS would map to
the RLDS on the RLDS Gateway.
Note that because the Gateway reserves three
16AI Board numbers for its own use, an I/O Network
with a Gateway is limited to thirteen (13) 16AI
boards. Note also that since 16 is the highest board
number possible, a Gateway’s dip switch may not be
set to any number above 14.
Einstein Mode
In the Einstein mode the Gateway board responds
as a series of three IRLDS units numbered in succession. Addressing the “boards” represented by the
Gateway is achieved by setting dip switches 1 through
4 to the first unit number to be used. When this number is set, the Gateway will also use the next two
board numbers above the first board number. For example, if a Gateway dip switch is set to board number
4, the Gateway will use IRLDS numbers 4, 5, and 6.

will also need to be adjusted to show the correct number of IRLDS units. This number should be the total
number of RLDS, IRLDS II, and MRLDS (up to 16
can be mapped to one IRLDS) units being used on
that Einstein/E2.
Since the RLDS Gateway can support up to three
(3) RLDS units, the first RLDS unit maps to the first
RLDS Gateway address, and the second RLDS unit
maps to the second RLDS Gateway address; therefore, if the RLDS Gateway address = 4, then RLDS
unit #1 will appear on IRLDS #4 and so forth.
If you are not using all three RLDS units, you can
disable them on the Gateway (see Section 11.2.,
RLDS Enable Screen). If they are disabled on the
RLDS Gateway, then the corresponding addresses are
free to be used by other Gateways mapping in other
RLDS, IRLDS II, or MRLDS units.
Figure 4-14 - Gateway Dip Switch Numbering
4.2.4.3. Setting the Baud Rate Dip Switches
Dip switches 6 and 7 control the baud rate at which
the Gateway communicates with the site controller on
the RS485 Network. These switches must be set to the
same baud rate setting as the E2, Einstein, or REFLECS (usually 9600 baud). All Gateways and RLDS
units on the network must have the same baud rate dip
switch setting.
Dip switch 8 must be set to the ON position for
REFLECS controller mode and OFF for E2, Einstein
controller mode.
Baud rate for the RLDS is set by software, either
through the RLDS, or on the Gateway Board via
Hand-Held Terminal. It is recommended you use
19200 baud as the MODBUS Network baud rate, as it
is the default baud rate used by the RLDS. Set dip
switch 5 to OFF.
For example, if you had an IRLDS II Gateway
with two IRLDS II units, and an RLDS Gateway with
one RLDS, then you could set the IRLDS II for address 1 and disable the third IRLDS II unit on the
Gateway. Then set the RLDS Gateway for address 3
and disable the second and third RLDS units on this
Gateway. In E2 you would select three IRLDS con-

4.2.4.4. Setting the RS485 I/O Termination
Jumpers
As part of an area controller’s RS485 I/O (COM A
or COM D) Network, a Gateway must be terminated
if it is the end device of a daisy chain. Refer to the
controller’s user manual for information about daisy
chain networks and how they are terminated.
To terminate the Gateway, set the I/O Network
Jumpers to the right position as shown in Figure 4-16.
To un-terminate the Gateway, set the jumpers to the
left position.
Figure 4-17 - Gateway LED Locations
The Gateway has four LEDs: a General Status
LED, an Alarm LED, an RS485 I/O Net Status LED,
and a Receiver Bus Status LED (Figure 4-17).
4.2.5.1. The General Status LED
The General Status LED light flashes green once
every second to indicate it is powered up.
4.2.5.2. The Alarm LED
The Alarm LED (red) indicates when an alarm
condition exists for the Gateway. There are five possible LED states, each of which indicates a different
condition.
• OFF - No alarm conditions are active, and the
Gateway is functioning normally.
• Flashes 4 times/second - There is a problem
with the physical hardware (ROM) of the Gateway board. The board may need to be replaced.
Figure 4-16 - Gateway RS485 I/O Network Termination
• Flashes 2 times/second - There is no user configuration on this Gateway, no RLDS units are
commissioned in its memory, and it is essentially in an empty state. This LED state will occur
when the board is first powered up on-site.
• Flashes 1 time/second - The Gateway is not
communicating with the area controller due to
a possible RS485 I/O Network or controller
failure.
• ON with no flashing (steady) - One or more of
20 • RLDS I&O Manual

the RLDS units is offline. If all are offline,
check the wiring. If just one is offline, check the
RLDS controller.
4.2.5.3. RS485 I/O Network Status LED
The RS485 I/O Network Status LED flashes orange to indicate traffic on the I/O Network (between
the Gateway and the site controller). If this light does
not come on at all and the Alarm LED is flashing once
per second, there is a problem with the RS485 I/O
Network or the area controller.
4.2.5.4. Receiver Bus Network Status LED
The Receiver Bus Network Status LED blinks orange each time the RLDS Gateway sends a message
on MODBUS. However, when the Gateway receives
a message from the RLDS units, the LED will flash
brightly for 1/2 second.
If the Gateway has RLDS configurations in memory and is communicating properly, you should see
this LED flash brightly several times within the
course of a few minutes.

8.2.2. Refrigerant Type
8.1. Functional Overview
Normally each RLDS will perform measurements
on its active zones sequentially and without user input. The total time it takes an RLDS to complete a
measurement cycle is directly proportional to the
number of active zones and the physical length of the
air lines. Monitors linked together on a network operate independently of each other and consequently
complete their respective measurement cycles at different rates.

026-1309 Rev 7 24-MAR-2014
8.2.6. Log Interval
8.3.1. Leak Level
The RLDS retains a data log of 100 measurements
for each zone. The log interval is the number of minutes from 1 to 1440 between each log point. This parameter can be changed from Zone Setup screen 1
(Figure 8-1).
This is the concentration level in PPM that will activate a leak alarm condition.
The default setting for this parameter is 1440 minutes (24 hours). If the log interval time is set to 0, then
a measurement is recorded in the trend log after every
measurement cycle. Therefore, after the trend log is
filled, it will contain the last 100 measurement points
for a zone. If you want the data logged less frequently,
increase this value.
It is important to remember that cycle time is dependent on many factors, including the number of
zones being monitored, input line length, and the run
zeroing mode selected. Before changing this value it
may be useful to review the log data first using the
Trend screen to determine the nominal cycle time.

8.4. Alarm Conditions
When an alarm condition is detected anywhere on
the network, the red ALARM LED will glow on the
front of the unit. Additionally, an external alarm device may activate and an audible alarm may sound if
those features have been enabled (Section 4.2., E2,
Einstein, and REFLECS Controllers (The RLDS

have been enabled (Section 7.8., Audible Alarm).
8.6. Alarms
8.6.1. Functional Overview
If the PPM level for any zone exceeds its designated spill, leak, or evacuate thresholds, an alarm condition will be created. Once the RLDS completes a
measurement cycle in the affected zone the alarm
condition will be indicated. At that time the red
ALARM LED on the RLDS will glow. Additionally,
an external alarm device may activate and an audible
alarm may sound if those features have been enabled
(Section 7.8., Audible Alarm).
Figure 8-3 - Alarm Summary Screen
The Alarm Summary screen displays a list of all
alarm conditions pending across the network. The
screen is divided into eight (8) boxes, and each box
represents a single alarm. If more than eight (8)
alarms are pending, additional pages can be displayed
by selecting the MORE option (visible when there
are more than eight (8) alarms pending).
Each box displays the zone number, zone name,
and the current PPM reading. A flashing box indicates
an alarm that has not been acknowledged. A static box
represents an alarm that has been acknowledged but
has not yet been cleared from the system.
The Alarm Data Log can be reset by pressing a
combination of the ENTER and right arrow buttons
while viewing the log.
The alarm condition may or may not have to be acknowledged for the system to return to normal operation.

the Zone Setup screen 1 (Figure 8-1). This enables review of the zone setup parameters and
accesses the Trend screen.
Use the ESC button on the RLDS unit to go back
to the previous menu.
8.6.4. Acknowledging Alarms
Each pending alarm may require, depending upon
selected alarm mode, acknowledgment before the
system returns to normal operation Section 7.7.,
Alarm Acknowledge (Ack) - Mode. To acknowledge
an alarm, navigate to the Alarm Detail screen and select the ACK option as previously described. You
will then be returned to the Alarm Summary screen
and the box associated with that alarm will no longer
System Faults
Once all the alarms associated with a given RLDS
are acknowledged, its red LED will turn off, and any
external alarms connected to the RLDS relays will deactivate. Keep in mind that the system will continue
to generate new alarms if PPM values above the alarm
thresholds are detected.
8.7. System Faults
8.7.1. Functional Overview
If a system malfunction occurs, the yellow
FAULT LED to glow. Additionally, an external
alarm device may activate and an audible alarm may
sound if those features have been enabled (Section
7.8., Audible Alarm).
Depending on the nature of the fault, the RLDS
may or may not continue to operate normally. Under
a non-critical fault condition, the RLDS will continue
to measure and log data, but some peripheral functions may be compromised. Under a critical fault condition, action is required for the RLDS to operate
normally.
Various fault conditions are listed and explain
what action should be taken to correct the problem in
Section 8.7.2.1., Critical Faults.
General Operation of RLDS - UI • 33
8.7.2. Navigating to the Fault Screen
Displayed on the initial Status screen (Figure 7-2)
is a Fault option. Scroll down with the cursor key and
select this option, and the Fault screen will display:
may be out of tolerance. Refer to the Diagnostic
screen (Figure 8-12) for the DET voltage, AVE
voltage and ZERO voltage. Contact Technical
Support with this information for further instructions.
• REZERO VOLT TOL - The detector output
voltage is out of tolerance. Refer to the Diagnostic screen (Figure 8-12) and contact Technical Support for assistance.
• TRIGGER FAULT - No trigger from IR
source pulser. Contact Technical Support with
all information from the Diagnostic screen
(Figure 8-12) for further instructions.
8.7.2.2. Non-Critical Faults
Figure 8-6 - Fault Screen
8.7.2.1. Critical Faults
• NO FLOW ON ZONE - Go to the Status
screen (Figure 7-2) and select FAULT. This
will display a NO FLOW message in each individual zone affected. Check for a blockage in
the air sample line or at the line-end filter. Once
the blockage has been cleared, the RLDS will
return to normal operation after the zone has
been sampled.
NOTE: This can take several minutes
since it is dependent upon how many zones
there are and their lengths. The RLDS will
clear the fault the next time it polls the affected
zone.
• NO FLOW ON PURGE - Check the purge
line for a blockage. Verify that the length of the
purge line and exhaust line do not exceed 500
feet (152 meters) in length.
• NO FLOW DETECTED - Check for proper
pump operation. Examine the hydrophobic filter for contaminants or water on the input side.
If the input side is gray, a contaminant is present and the filter must be replaced. To drain, remove the tubing from both sides of the filter
and tap the tubing on a hard surface to dislodge
the contents.
• CLIPPING FAULT - The detector voltage
34 • RLDS I&O Manual
• BOX TEMP FAULT - Enclosure's internal
temperature is outside normal range (or IR sensor has failed). Check the installation to verify
that the monitor is not being subjected to extreme temperatures. Verify that the ventilation
holes are not obstructed. Check the Diagnostic
screen (Figure 8-12) for the ZERO temperature, BNCH temperature and BOX temperature. Contact Technical Support with this
information for further instructions.
• BENCH TEMP FAULT - Optical bench is
outside of normal operating range (or sensor
has failed). Check the installation to verify that
the monitor is not being subjected to extreme
temperatures. Check the Diagnostic screen
(Figure 8-12) for the ZERO temperature,
BNCH temperature and BOX temperature.
Contact Technical Support with this information for further instructions.
• PRESSURE SENSOR - Manifold pressure is
outside normal operating range (or sensor has
failed). Check the Diagnostic screen record
ALL data (Figure 8-12). Contact Technical
Support with this information for further instructions.
• LOOP FAULT - This would only be displayed
if the dual 4-20 mAdc option was installed and
one or both current loops are open. Check the
wiring to load/monitoring circuit on both 4-20
mA loops.
• CONFIG FAULT - There is an error in the
RLDS Setup screen 2 - NUMBER ZONES INSTALLED field (Figure 7-4). Check that the
number of zones installed for each RLDS unit
and the number of RLDS units on the network
026-1309 Rev 7 24-MAR-2014
are properly programmed. Check to ensure that
the manifold solenoid cable connector in each
RLDS unit is securely fastened to its terminal
connector. Check for an illegal parameter. If
necessary, reset to the factory default settings.
8.7.5. Viewing Fault Log
A data log of the last 20 fault conditions is retained
in memory. On the Fault screen (Figure 8-6) select
the LOG option to view a display of the Fault Log:
8.7.3. Reset to Factory Default
Settings
IMPORTANT: Performing this function ERASES all program parameters, alarms, faults, trends, and
log files.
8.7.3.1. Resetting the RLDS
Press and hold down the Factory Default switch
inside the RLDS (Figure 3-8):
1. Cycle AC power OFF then ON
2. Listen for five beeps
Figure 8-7 - Fault Log Screen
3. Release the switch
This screen lists potential fault conditions in the
left column and displays a check mark indicating
which problems were associated with each fault condition as represented by the vertical cursor bar. As
you move the bar horizontally using the left/right cursor keys, the date and time the fault condition was detected are displayed in the upper right hand corner of
the display window.
Reprogram the RLDS as described in Section 7,
Programming Setup and UI Navigation for RLDS Display Screens.
8.7.4. Clearing System Faults
If the fault condition is associated with an RLDS,
the monitor will return to normal operation soon after
the problem is corrected. At that time the yellow LED
will turn off and any external alarms connected to the
monitor's alarm relays will also turn off.
Once the system malfunction has been corrected,
it may take some time for the fault condition to clear
completely. If the fault is associated with a specific
zone, the RLDS must first cycle back to the affected
zone before it returns to normal operation. At that
time the yellow LED will turn off and any external
alarms connected to the monitor's alarm relays will
also turn off.
System Faults
Anytime the fault status changes, there is an entry
in the fault log, both when the fault occurs and when
it is cleared.
The Fault Log can be reset by pressing a combination of the ENTER and right arrow buttons while
viewing the log.
General Operation of RLDS - UI • 35
8.7.6. Viewing Flow Log
On the Fault Log screen, press ENTER (as shown
in Figure 8-7) to access the Flow Log screen. The
Flow Log displays the last 20 flow events for all zones
and the purge port.
Figure 8-9 - Trend Screen
Figure 8-8 - Flow Log Screen
This screen lists the zones in the left column and
displays flow data. Use the up/down buttons to scroll
through the zones and the left/right to scroll through
the log data. As you move the bar horizontally, the
date and time of the condition are displayed in the upper right hand corner.
The Flow Log can be reset by pressing a combination of the ENTER and right arrow buttons while
viewing the log.
The trend graph opens with the cursor located over
the most recent data point. Use the left/right cursor
keys to move the cursor to different data points. Holding a key down will cause the cursor to move rapidly
across the screen. As you move the cursor position,
the date and time of that reading, along with the PPM
value, are displayed at the top of the screen above the
graph. The trend graph is automatically scaled to accommodate the largest PPM value displayed. The
ZOOM OUT and ZOOM IN options allow you to adjust the vertical scale of the graph.
8.8.1. Navigating to the Trend
Screen
The trend data is stored on a first-in, first-out basis.
After 100 trend values have been stored, the 101st
value will replace the first value stored; therefore, in
normal operation, when entering trend mode the cursor will be located at the most recent data point. The
data points to the left of the initial cursor location will
be the next most recent. The data point to the right
will be the oldest data point in the buffer and will be
overwritten by the next data point.
From the Zone screen (Figure 8-1), select the
Trend option on the bottom left side. This will open
the Trend screen:
The Trend Data Log can be reset by pressing a
combination of the ENTER and right arrow buttons
while viewing the log.
8.8. The Trend Screen
When finished, press the ESC key to revert to the
previous screen.
8.9. The Calibration Screen
8.9.1. Overview
The Calibration Screen is used to adjust the calibration factor for each refrigerant gas. It is also used
to program the instrument for new gases.
36 • RLDS I&O Manual
026-1309 Rev 7 24-MAR-2014
IMPORTANT: Changing information on CAL
FACTOR will VOID the factory calibration. Typically, the unit will remain within the factory-calibrated accuracy indefinitely and no calibration is
required. Complex software algorithms adjust for
temperature drift, IR source aging, and pressure
changes in order to keep the unit within factory accuracy specifications.
8.9.2. Navigating to the Calibration
Screen
On the System Setup screen (Figure 7-3), select
the Calibration option abbreviated CAL.
8.9.4. CO2 Atmospheric
Concentration
(RLDS-CO2 Units Only)
CO2 is supported by RLDS-CO2 units. Because
CO2 is present in ambient air, a relative reading is
used to determine the amount of CO2 coming from a
leak. The CAL screen offers the ability to enter the atmospheric CO2 concentration manually. This value is
typically in a range of 380-400 PPM depending on location. Enter the CO2 concentration as follows:
1. After selecting CO2 as the desired gas and setting the CAL FACTOR, you will be prompted
to enter the CO2 concentration value.
2. Use the up/down cursor keys to modify the
numbers to set to the appropriate value.
3. Press ENTER to accept the new entry or ESC
to revert to the previous setting.
8.9.5. Calibration Procedure
Figure 8-10 - Calibration Screen
8.9.3. Adjusting Calibration Factor
The factory default CAL factor for standard units
is 1.000. This value may be different if the high accuracy option is ordered. Proceed as follows to adjust
the current calibration factor:
1. Use the PREV GAS or NEXT GAS options to
scroll through the list of refrigerants until the
gas you wish to work with is displayed.
2. Select the CAL FACTOR option to edit the
value.
3. Use the left/right cursor keys to move across
the entry field and the up/down cursor keys to
modify the individual numbers.
4. Press ENTER to accept the new entry or ESC
to revert to the previous setting.
The Calibration Screen
The CAL FACTOR is determined by sampling a
known dilution of the type of refrigerant gas to be
sampled. The sample must be prepared to less than
half the desired accuracy, and the concentration must
be corrected for ambient temperature and pressure at
the time of measurement.
Calibration is best performed at or near full scale
(1,000 PPM). It can, however, be done at any concentration, and ideally in the range where maximum accuracy is desired down to, but not below 100 PPM.
A cylinder of refrigerant gas at a certified PPM
level must be used to ensure that sampling occurs at
ambient conditions. A minimum sample size of 5 liters is required.
The RLDS should be operating for at least one
hour prior to performing a calibration.
Prepare the RLDS for sampling by initially setting
its CAL FACTOR to 1.000. Next, set up the RLDS for
a logging interval of zero minutes (Section 8.2.6., Log
Interval), and place the RLDS in its zone hold mode
for the zone you wish to use for calibration purposes
(Section 7.10., Zone Hold Time).
Connect the sample bag directly to the intake port
for the zone you have set up and allow the RLDS to
sample the entire bag. When sampling is complete,
view the trend data for the zone used to sample (Section 8.8., The Trend Screen). Read the measured PPM
General Operation of RLDS - UI • 37
by placing the cursor on the spikes cause by the sample. If the bag was large enough for multiple samples,
average the most stable ones.
The new CAL factor is computed by dividing the
known gas value by the measured value. Typically
this value will be between 0.95 and 1.05. This value is
stored in non-volatile memory.
8.9.6. Programming New Gases
As new refrigerants come into use, the RLDS allows the addition of these new gases to its on-board
refrigerant gas library. At the end of the gas library list
is an option labeled CUSTOM for adding new gases.
From the Calibration screen use the left/right arrows
to select CUSTOM from the list of refrigerants. Next,
press ENTER, and use the up/down arrow keys to enter the calibration factor.
The selection of the matching gas and CAL factor
is performed by analyzing the new refrigerant. Once
the matching gas is determined, field calibration is
possible by using the same procedure as for other refrigerants. When the new gas entry is complete, simply set up the appropriate zone for CUSTOM.
Program the instrument for a new gas as follows:
1. From the Calibration screen, use the PREV
GAS or NEXT GAS options to scroll through
the list of available choices until the CUSTOM
option is displayed.
Figure 8-11 - Custom Gas Screen
2. Select the CUSTOM option. Press ENTER to
accept the new entry or ESC to revert to the
previous setting.
3. Enter the new CAL Factor as received from
Emerson Retail Solutions.

Figure 8-12 - Diagnostic Screen Layout
Diagnostic Options and Controls
8.10.2. Diagnostic Screen Overview
The Diagnostic Screen contains sensor data and
status information useful for trouble shooting various
fault conditions. An explanation of each line is given
below along with normal operating ranges.
DET: Detector Voltage - Peak-to-peak output of
the IR sensor, in the absence of gas this value can
range from 3.900V to 4.500V.
AVE: Average Detector Voltage - Running average of the values displayed in line 1 (DET).
ZERO: Zero Voltage - IR sensor output that was
stored during the last purge cycle and has the same
range as line 1 (DET).
Figure 8-13 - Diagnostic Options and Controls
The Diagnostic Screen
NOISE: A 16-point running average of the noise
portion of IR bench output. This reading is valuable
mainly when refrigerant is not present.
General Operation of RLDS - UI • 39
AVEAU: Average Absorbency - Optical absorbency computed from the Average Detector Voltage
and Zero Voltage. In the absence of refrigerant the absorbency is 0.000AU. When sampling refrigerants, its
value varies proportionally with the refrigerant concentration.
8.11. Service Mode
The Service Mode option is located on the System
Setup screen in the bottom right corner.
UM/L: uMoles/L - Absolute concentration in micro-moles per liter of refrigerant based on NOISE and
the internal calibration. There are two figures displayed: the first (annotated by a B) is the actual measurement at the IR bench. The second is the calculated
value corrected to ambient conditions (temperature +
pressure).
When activated, Service Mode will disable the
RLDS unit for a specified length of time. The default
is 60 minutes. This time interval can be changed as
described in Section 7.15., Service Timeout.
PPM: Parts Per Million is the volume concentration referenced to standard temperature and pressure
and is computed from the Average Absorbency, Zero
Temperature, and Ambient Pressure. There are two
figures displayed. The first (annotated by a B) is the
actual PPM at the IR bench. The second is a PPM
reading normalized to standard temperature and pressure.
Access the Service Mode options from the initial
Status screen. Press the SERVICE MODE ENTRY
option twice within 3 seconds.
IMPORTANT: Note that while in the Service
Mode no measurements are made, nor are any alarms
activated.
To exit the Service Mode, again press the SERVICE MODE ENTRY option twice within 3 seconds.
ZERO: Zero Temperature - Displays the sensor
and enclosure temperature measured and stored
during the last purge cycle in degrees C.
BENCH: Bench Temperature - Current IR sensor
temperature in degrees C as well as the raw voltage
coming from the temperature sensor. This value can
range from ambient to ambient +15 degrees C.
BOX: Box Temperature - Current internal enclosure temperature along with the raw voltage from the
temperature sensor, and has the same range as Bench
Temperature.
PRESS: Pressure - Current absolute manifold
pressure in PSIA along with the output voltage of the
pressure sensor. This value should always be 0.2 to
1.0 PSIA below Ambient Pressure (AMB).
VAC: Vacuum - The vacuum pressure is measured every purge cycle by closing all sample valves.
Its value is typically 2.5 to 4.0 PSIA below Ambient
Pressure (AMB).
AMB: Ambient - Ambient pressure is measured
every purge cycle with the sample pump off and the
manifold open. Its value is weather and altitude dependent and can range from 10.0 to 15.5 PSIA.
FAULT CODE: For fault code information, see
the fault code list (Table 8-3 on page 45).
XXXX FEET: Programmed length of tubing for
an active zone.

example, if there are two motor rooms served by
one RLDS, each motor room has three sensing
zones. Make the first motor room zones 1, 3, and 5,
and make the second motor room zones 2, 4, and
6. This will allow the leak detection system to return to that area being sensed more regularly.
If the zone exists in a location where air flow will affect the dispersion of refrigerant, reduce the alarm limits to a lower level than usual. This will allow for
dispersion of the refrigerant in the air.

Maintenance
13.1. Warnings and
Cautions
WARNING: Shock hazard! Always disconnect
the power supply before opening the enclosure
of the monitor.
CAUTION: When working inside the instrument be very careful not to dislodge any electrical wiring or pneumatic tubing. The RLDS
contains sensitive electronic components that
can be easily damaged. Be careful not to touch or disturb any of these components.
13.2. Charcoal Filter
The charcoal filter removes refrigerant gas from
the purge-air stream during the purging process. Replace the charcoal filter (P/N 275-0275) approximately every six (6) months, when a zero filter fault occurs
(fault code <0100>), or after the monitor has been exposed to unusually high levels of refrigerant gas, such
as after an evacuation alarm.
13.3. Hydrophobic Filter
The hydrophobic filter prevents water from entering the detector. A zone flow fault will occur (fault
code <0800>) if this filter becomes blocked. Replace
the hydrophobic filter as required (P/N 572-0980).
line and purge-line termination filters prevent dust
and dirt from entering the monitor. Both of the filters
should be checked periodically.
• A zone flow fault will occur (fault code
<0800>) if the gas-sample line filter becomes
blocked.
• A purge flow auto will occur (fault code
<1000>) if the purge-line filter becomes
blocked.
Remove the filter from the line and replace it with
a new one (P/N 275-0300).
13.5. Annual Maintenance
To assure peak performance and accuracy of the
RLDS, it is recommended that maintenance be performed on an annual basis. This maintenance routine
involves replacing all end-of-line filters, charcoal filter, and internal dust filter/water stop. These filters
prevent dust and dirt from damaging components of
the RLDS such as the solenoid manifolds, infrared
sensor, and sample pump. If the RLDS is installed in
areas where dust and particulate levels are high, it is
recommended that the filters be changed approximately every after three to six months to prevent system faults caused by purge or zone restrictions.
13.5.1. Checking Pump and Bench
Diagnostics
During maintenance is a good time to check the diagnostic screen (“DIAG”) to verify that the detector
voltage and pump pressures are within optimum parameters. If they are not, a voltage adjustment or
scheduled pump replacement could head off a system
fault.
To check the pump and detector diagnostics, enter
the diagnostic screen by using the front panel keypad
and pressing the arrow key to highlight DIAG.
13.4. Servicing Air Lines and
Replacing Termination
Filters
The gas sample line and optional exhaust line
should be checked periodically for obvious signs of
kinks, damage and contamination. The gas-sample
Warnings and Cautions
RLDS Maintenance • 63
Figure 13-1 - Navigating to the Diagnostic Screen
For information about the Diagnostic Screen, refer
to Section 8.10., The Diagnostic Screen.
13.5.2. Gas Testing
To verify monitor operation, gas testing is recommended. This ensures the integrity of the sample tubing is still intact and the sensor is responding to gas.
Gas testing can be done either by “bump testing” or
by performing a gas verification test.
A bump test is done by exposing each zone to either a liquid or gaseous refrigerant. The test verifies
the sample path and checks that the sensor is responding to gas. The refrigerant concentration is not determined.
A gas verification test is done by exposing each
zone to a known concentration of gas and verifying
that the display readings are within 10% of the applied
gas. Gas verification kits for a variety of refrigerant
types are available which contain certified PPM levels of test gas. For more information about gas verification test, refer to Section 14.1.1., Testing with Gas
Verification Kit.

Calibration
14.1. Calibration Check
The RLDS provides for the continuous monitoring
of refrigerant gas levels in up to 16 separate test zones
or channels. The instrument can be programmed to
monitor a variety of refrigerants and independent leak
(small), spill (medium), and evacuation (large) levels
may be designated for each zone. Below are the steps
for testing the calibration or gas verification of the
RLDS unit using a gas verification kit and reference
gas cylinder to measure the calibration of the unit.
14.1.1. Testing with Gas Verification
Kit
Materials Required
5. From the RLDS Main menu, press the Enter
button and select System Setup.
1.
From the SETUP menu, select SYSTEM.
2.
Navigate to Zone Hold and set to 15 minutes.
3.

ESC button.
6. Enter the Zones menu from the Main Menu. In
Zone 1:
1.
Select Refrigerant and change the selection
to match the type of refrigerant located on the
reference cylinder.
2.
Select Distance and change to 5 ft.
3.
Return to the System Menu by pressing the
ESC button twice.
7. From the RLDS System Menu, press the button
that corresponds to Zones on the menu to go
into the Zone View Menu.
1.
Select the zone at the top level screen.
2.
Press and hold down the ENTER key until
the unit beeps. The word HOLDING will
blink in the status box.
3.
While in the hold mode, further investigation
of the zone's status can be made by navigating to that zone’s Setup Screen 1.
4.
To release the zone from the Hold Mode,
press and hold down the ENTER key until
the unit beeps and the screen display returns
to normal.
• Reference gas cylinder
• Variable flow regulator
• RLDS unit
Steps
1. Go to Step 3 if the RLDS is powered up and
communicating.
Verify that the RLDS is communicating on
power up: In the upper left corner of the RLDS
screen, the message CHECK NODE will display first. When the unit is communicating
properly, CHECK NODE will be replaced by
the name programmed into the unit.
2. When the unit is communicating normally, it
will be in warm-up mode. Allow the warm up
cycle to complete before proceeding to the next
step (approximately 15 minutes.).
3. Connect:
• The variable regulator (P/N 275-0283) to
the reference gas cylinder.
• The 3/16” tubing to the output of the regulator.
4. Disconnect the existing tubing from Zone 1 on
the RLDS.
Calibration Check
8. Arrow over to System Setup.
Enter the Diagnostic screen by pressing DIAG.
9. Verify that the unit is not in a purge cycle. This
can be done by verifying the airflow in Zone 1.
Review and record the pressure (PRES) reading in the diagnostic screen. If the unit is in a
purge cycle, wait until PURGING stops flashing and then review and record the PRES reading in on the diagnostic screen.
10.Connect the tubing from the reference flow
regulator to Zone 1 on the manifold of the
RLDS.
NOTES:
• The RLDS Fault LED may illuminate until
gas starts to flow from the reference cylinder
to the RLDS. The pressure should be below the
Appendix: RLDS Calibration • 69
original reading. If the reading does not drop,
the unit may be in the purge cycle. If so, wait
until the purge cycle ends before continuing.
Slowly adjust the variable flow regulator in a
clockwise direction until the pressure is the
same as the original reading.
• You may have to block or partially block the
relief valve on the variable pressure regulator in order to achieve the appropriate pressure. Allow about 1 minute to stabilize, and
then read the first ppm value in the diagnostics
screen. The reading should be within +10% of
the actual concentration listed on the cylinder.
• The unit may go into a purge cycle during
the test process. If this happens, the ppm reading will drop to approximately 0. This does not
affect the verification results. However, in order to obtain a valid ppm reading, the unit must
be drawing from Zone 1.
11.Close the reference gas cylinder by adjusting
the variable flow regulator in a counterclockwise direction until it is fully closed. Reset
Zone 1 information (distance, refrigerant, zone
hold time) as desired for normal operation.
12.If the reading in Step 10 is not within +10% of
the actual concentration listed on the cylinder,
verify:
• The pressure reading from Step 9.
• The tubing is securely connected to the cylinder and Zone 1 input port.
• The proper refrigerant is selected (Step 6).
• The unit is in hold for Zone 1.
• That there is proper pressure from variable
flow regulator (Step 10).
• That enough time was given for readings to
stabilize and the reading was not taken during a purge cycle (Steps 9 and 10).
If the unit still does not measure within +10% of
the concentration listed on the cylinder, please contact
Emerson Retail Solutions at 770-425-2724.
