CAUTION High readings outside of the LEL display range or a blocking alarm may indicate an explosive concentration.
Operation 220.127.116.11 Activating the pump To activate the pump in (normal) measuring mode: 1. Place, align and tighten the pump adapter on the thread port on the top cover. Check that the pump adapter is mounted correctly. Avoid bending the pump adapter.
Operation If the measuring range is exceeded significantly at the CatEx channel (very high concentration of flammable materials), a blocking alarm is triggered. This CatEx blocking alarm can be acknowledge by switching the gas detector off and then on again in fresh air. X-am 8000 only: This does not apply in the case of an activated over range for methane.
Operation Option Description Gas statistics The following gas statistics are avail- able: – Select Shift peak to display the exposure peaks for all gasses. – Select Application peak to display the application peaks for all gasses. – Select TWA values to display the available TWA values for all gasses.
Operation The wizards are only available for X-am 8000. For the DrägerSensors XXS CI2, COCI2, O3 as well as amine and odorants, there are no wizards for confined spaces and leak searching, as these materials can not be pumped (properly) through tubes. In addition to the materials listed above, there may also be other materials for which there are no flushing times available in the gas detector.
Operation 2. Mount the pump adapter to the gas detector. Make sure that both guide pins are in the correct grooves. Check that the pump adapter is mounted correctly. If the pump adapter is mounted correctly, the leak test starts automatically. If the leak test does not start, the gas detector is not ready for use.
Operation 2. Remove the pump adapter. ✓ The pump is flushed and the gas detector automatically switches to diffusion mode. 4.11 Measurements with wizards The gas detector has wizards for easily preparing the measurements and for measurement displays optimised for the measurement.
