Monoxor III
1.0 INTRODUCTION
The Monoxor III is a portable analyzer designed to detect and display
concentrations of Carbon Monoxide (CO) gas between 0 and 2000 ppm. The
analyzer is capable of testing for CO in both ambient room air, and in the
flue-gas stream of fossil-fuel fired furnaces and boilers.
Ordering Information:
Part No. Description
19-8104
Monoxor III, includes 4 ‘AA’ batteries, probe & hose assembly
with integral water-trap / filter, and a hard carrying case
19-8105
Monoxor III, includes 4 ‘AA’ batteries, probe & hose assembly
with integral water-trap / filter, hard carrying case, plus
an IrDA printer with an assortment of printer accessories
including an AC adapter, roll of paper, in-car charger, belt
clip, and magnet
The analyzer detects and displays the presence of CO by first drawing in a
gas sample from the area being tested by the analyzer’s built-in motorized
pump. The gas sample is next directed into a sensor chamber where the
sample is analyzed for the presence of CO. If CO is detected, the CO ppm
level is displayed on the analyzer’s LCD.
A permanent record of the detected CO level, along with the current time
and date, can be made by using the optional wireless IrDA printer.
A backlight enables the operator to read the display in dimly-lit areas. A
power-saver feature causes the backlight to automatically turn OFF after
10 minutes, and causes the analyzer to shut OFF after 20 minutes of inactivity. The power saver feature, however, is disabled while the detected CO
level is above 50 ppm.
When the analyzer is used to measure the CO content in flue-gas, a rigid
stainless steel probe with handle is provided that allows gas samples to
be taken from within the flue stack. An integral water-trap / filter prevents water and soot from being drawn into the analyzer. The probe can
also be used in ambient testing to draw in gas samples from cramped and
confined areas.
If the analyzer is turned OFF while a high level of CO is still present
within the unit, the analyzer’s pump remains running and the unit will
not turn OFF until the detected CO level drops below 50 ppm.

•Turn the analyzer ON
•Wait for the unit to warm up
•Take a gas sample
4.1 Taking a Gas Sample
Important! If the CO channel is set up for Auto Zero (refer
to Section 3.4.3), ensure that the analyzer will be sampling
fresh air (containing no CO) when turned ON.
Turn ON the analyzer by pressing the I/O button. Observe that when
power is first applied, the software revision level is first displayed followed
by a screen that counts down the warm-up period. The warm-up period is
either 60 seconds (Auto Zero Mode) or 10 seconds (Manual Zero Mode).
�
Following warm-up, the CO screen appears. This screen shows the current
detected CO level in ppm. If the probe is being used, insert the probe tip
into the area to be sampled.
� �
� � �
Note: If a sensor error was detected during warm-up, the CO
Sensor Error Screen will be displayed. Refer to Section 4.5.
Front Panel Button Functions:

Monoxor III
4.2 Ending a Test
WARNING! Burn Hazard. Do not touch the probe after
removing it from a flue. Allow the probe to cool before handling (about 5 minutes).
After taking a gas sample, remove the probe and take the analyzer to an
area containing fresh air. Allow the pump to run until the CO reading
drops to near zero.
4.3 Turning OFF the Analyzer
Turn OFF the analyzer by pressing the I/O button. The analyzer will count
down from 5 before turning OFF. Pressing ENTER, however, will abort the
count down and keep the analyzer ON.
Note: The analyzer will automatically turn itself OFF after
20 minutes of keyboard inactivity, unless the detected CO
level is above 50 ppm.
4.4 CO Purge During Turn OFF
If the detected CO level is above 50 ppm when the analyzer is turned OFF,
the unit will remain ON with its pump running and display “PUrG CO”.
The countdown from 5 will not begin until the CO level drops below
50 ppm.
Pressing ­ENTER during CO purge will return the analyzer to the CO
measurement screen. Although not recommended for routine use, the CO
purging process can be bypassed by pressing the I/O button a second time,
which will immediately turn OFF the analyzer.
14
Instruction 19-9326
Monoxor III
4.5 CO Sensor Error Screen
When the CO channel is set up for Auto Zero (refer to Section 3.4.3), a
CO sensor error will occur if the detected Carbon Monoxide level is above
50 ppm during the warm-up period.
Note, however, that if the CO channel is set up for manual calibration,
the analyzer does not auto-zero the CO sensor during warm-up, and thus
does not generate a CO sensor error when the analyzer is turned ON in an
atmosphere containing a high background level of CO.
Make the following checks before replacing a suspected spent or defective
sensor:
1. Turn OFF the analyzer and turn it back ON in an area of fresh air.
2. If Step 1 doesn’t eliminate the error condition, replace the sensor
per Section 5.5.
4.6 Using the Backlight
The LCD can be read in dimly-lit areas by pressing the LIGHT button.
The backlight automatically turns OFF after 10 minutes of keyboard
inactivity, but can be turned OFF at any time by again pressing the
LIGHT button.
4.7 Using the Probe
A rigid stainless steel probe with handle, connected to a flexible hose with
integral water-trap / filter can be used to draw a gas sample into the analyzer from the room, grilles, diffusers, and furnace flues.
The hose and probe assembly can be detached from the analyzer when the
operator desires to sample without the probe.
Instruction 19-9326

Monoxor III
4.8 Operating Tips
•When an analyzer is brought in from a cold vehicle, let it warm up
slowly to minimize condensation. Temperatures below freezing will not
damage the analyzer; however, bringing a cold analyzer into a warm,
humid environment may cause condensate to form inside the case.
•If the CO channel is set up for Auto Zero (refer to Section 3.4.3), ensure that the analyzer is sampling fresh air when turned ON. Pulling
a flue-gas sample through the analyzer during its warm-up period will
not damage the analyzer, but it will result in incorrect CO readings.
Also note that a CO sensor error will occur if the detected CO level is
above 50 ppm during warm-up.
•Flue-gas condensate is acidic and very corrosive. It is important not to
allow the analyzer’s internal components to become soaked in condensate for long periods of time.
•Before each use, inspect the filter element of the water-trap / filter assembly. Replace the filter if it looks dirty.
•During a test, keep the analyzer above the water-trap, and keep the trap
in a vertical position. This will maximize the effectiveness of the trap
and keep liquid condensate from being drawn directly into the analyzer.
•When liquid condensate is seen inside the water trap, empty the trap
before it becomes full. Refer to Section 5.4.
•It is recommended that the analyzer be purged after taking a flue-gas
measurement before turning it OFF. Once the probe is removed from the
stack, disconnect the hose assembly from the bottom of the analyzer and
let the pump run for 10 minutes or so to completely remove any remaining flue gases, and dry any condensate from inside the sensor chamber.
•When storing the analyzer, it’s a good idea to empty the water trap and
leave it open to further dry it out.
•Calibrate the analyzer about every 6 months to ensure its accuracy.
4.9 Resetting the Microprocessor
If the analyzer ‘locks up’ and cannot be turned OFF, reset the microprocessor by removing one of the batteries for 5 seconds.

7.0 HAZARDS OF CARBON MONOXIDE
Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning results in headache, nausea, chronic
tiredness, confusion, dizziness, and sometimes coma or death. CO effects
people by cutting off the supply or Oxygen to their muscles and brain. The
harmful effects of CO exposure depend on both the concentration of CO in
the air and the length of exposure.
Concentration of
CO in Air
Inhalation Time and Toxic Symptoms Developed
50 ppm* (0.005%)
Maximum allowable concentration for continuous
exposure in any 8‑hour period.
200 ppm* (0.02%)
Slight headache, tiredness, dizziness, nausea after
2–3 hours.
400 ppm (0.04%)
Frontal headaches within 1–2 hours, life
threatening after 3 hours.
800 ppm (0.08%)
Dizziness, nausea and convulsions within
45 minutes. Unconsciousness within 2 hours.
Death within 2–3 hours.
1,600 ppm (0.16%)
Headache, dizziness and nausea within
20 minutes. Death within 1 hour.
3,200 ppm (0.32%)
Headache, dizziness and nausea within
5–10 minutes. Death within 30 minutes.
6,400 ppm (0.64%)
Headache, dizziness and nausea within
1–2 minutes. Death within 10–15 minutes.
12,800 ppm (1.28%)
Death within 1–3 minutes.
For additional information on CO and its dangers, ask your sales representative about Bacharach’s Institute of Technical Training CO Seminars.
* Maximum CO concentration for exposure at any time as prescribed by
OSHA. Effects can vary significantly based on age, sex, weight, and overall state of health.
