  • Page 7: System Description

    The Honeywell EC-P2 is a portable, battery operated instrument for the measurement of gas concentrations in ambient air. The Honeywell EC-P2 can be converted from one target gas to another by simply plugging in a different SMART-CELL for the desired target gas (takes about 30 seconds).

    3 Maintenance 3.1 Periodic Maintenance It is essential that the test and calibration schedule be adhered to. Honeywell Analytics recommends the following maintenance schedule: • Response test prior to each use. Expose sensor to a sample of the target gas to verify proper sensor response and alarm functions.
