    MAN0889_Issue 3_03/13 Searchline Excel Cross-Duct Technical Handbook 2. Overview 2.1 Introduction Searchline Excel Cross-Duct gas detector consists of a Transmitter and Receiver unit, and a Heated Reflector Panel. The Transmitter and Receiver unit generates and detects the infrared beam. The Heated Reflector Panel is mounted at the opposite side of the duct to reflect the beam from the Transmitter back to the Receiver. Note: THE INFRARED BEAM IS INVISIBLE AND EYE SAFE. Heated Reflector Panel Mounting Plate Mounting Block Transmitter Conduit Receiver Junction Box (type DVC100 (M) MK2) There are two ranges of Searchline Excel Cross-Duct gas detector. These are:...

    If you have any queries concerning your installation design, contact Honeywell Analytics or your local agents. Honeywell Analytics is committed to ensuring that customers achieve reliable operation of their Searchline Excel Cross-Duct Gas Detectors. For this reason, Searchline Excel Cross-Duct should only be installed by fully trained personnel (trained by Honeywell Analytics or a Honeywell Analytics authorised trainer). This training will provide the installer with a clear understanding of the Searchline Excel Cross-Duct product and the associated accessories and tools.
  • Page 13: Location To Maximise Reliability And Availability

    Since the Transmitter and Receiver protrude from the duct wall, adequate precautions should be taken to protect personnel. Intense Electromagnetic Fields - Searchline Excel Cross-Duct complies with EN50270 and as such is well protected from interference by electromagnetic fields. However, locations in close proximity to radio/radar transmitters, heavy electrical plant and high voltage power cables may experience field strengths in excess of those specified in the standard. Where possible, such locations should be avoided or units should be installed...

    3.3 Electrical Connections 3.3.1 General Searchline Excel Cross-Duct complies with the EN50270. In order to maintain compliance with these standards it is essential that the electrical installation of Excel is engineered correctly. Electrical installation standards vary for different countries, companies and applications and it is the responsibility of the installation design authority to determine the applicable standards and ensure compliance with them.

    Calibrator Type SHC1 The Searchline Excel Cross-Duct operates with a very short path length, making it reasonable to assume that the gas concentration is uniform across the duct. Therefore Searchline Excel Cross-Duct uses the duct width to convert the measured gas reading from LEL.m to %LEL. It is important that the duct width is entered correctly during commissioning otherwise the detector could report a significant under or over read of gas concentration.
