Intrinsically safe sensor ( C) Standard Area Monitors Squeeze Release Tab (D) Remote Sensor Mounts Sensor Mount Step 5: If your shipment contains multiple sensor - types, you can identify gas type by the sensor’s ring color (A). Ring Color Gas Type Orange Ethylene Oxide (EtO) Light Blue Hydrogen Peroxide (H 2 O 2 ) Brown Peracetic Acid (PAA) Light Green Ozone (O 3 ) Red LEL (Lower Explosive Limit) Dark Green Oxygen (O 2 ) Intrinsically Safe sensors are identified by their metal tag (B) and should only replace other intrinsically safe sensors. Step 6 : Removing the Old Sensor: For standard area monitors (C), squeeze the release tab and gently pull the sensor from the monitor. For remote sensor mounts (D), simply hold onto the mount and remove the sensor as shown. Step 7: Connect the new sensor to the monitor or remote sensor mount . For area monitors (C), squeeze the release tab first. If you fi nd the sensor module is difficult to connect, try aligning the ridges in the sensor module with the grooves on the monitor/remote sensor mount. Troubleshooting / Error Codes  If gas monitor goes into ALARM , remove sensor and call ChemDAQ for assistance.  Monitor displays READ . This is normal. If “Read” does not clear after 30 seconds, remove sensor and reconnect.  Error code   0001 : [Sensor Mismatch] Verify you have connected the correct sensor type to the gas monitor. (See Step 5 above.)  Error code   0003 [Over - range] Remove sensor. Call ChemDAQ for assistance.  Technical Service: (800) 245 - 3310 x310 or (412) 787 - 0202 x310
