3 Agenda Self-cleaning User Interface Turning on the MiniRAE 3000 Recommended Daily Start-up procedure Hygiene mode & displays Alarm signals Programming mode Charging station

4 MiniRAE 3000: Self-Cleaning Patented RAE Systems Breakthrough! Lamp runs for 4 hours during charging Generates small amounts of ozone to scrub sensor and lamp clean Without probe user will see lamp glow purple during charging Increases lamp life Drastically increases PID stability and reduces requirement for cleaning (Refer to TN-165)

5 MiniRAE 3000: Self-Cleaning duty-cycle Normal operation, pump shows inflow and outflow Duty-cycle, pump shows inflow and pump stopped With pump stopped, lamp generates small amounts of ozone which helps to scrub sensor and lamp clean Pump starts, dirt is removed from lamp Drastically increases PID stability and reduces requirement for cleaning (Refer to TN-165) Normal operating pump Pump during duty-cycle

6 User Interface: –Y/+: tests alarms –N/- –MODE (on) –Flashlight on/off key User Interface Display MODE key Flashlight on/off key LEDs and flashlight

7 Control Buttons Y/+ always controls left-hand response & increases numerical values N/- controls right-hand response & moves to next digit MODE controls center & returns to previous menu

8 Start-up: Turning On Press and hold Release Mode key Self-test Final display

9 Start-up: Programmable Zero calibration Unit performs Zero calibration after warm-up “apply zero gas…” If in fresh air, the M3K can be calibrated, The ppbRAE 3000 needs Zero grade air, or a Zeroing kit

10 Start-up: Lamp Alarm “Lamp” alarm may occur on start-up This indicates that PID lamp has failed to light –Wait 1-2 minutes If “Lamp” message remains, turn off MiniRAE 3000 and restart –“Lamp” alarm clears and MiniRAE 3000 is ready for use If after restart, “Lamp” message remains, the PID needs service

11 Start-up: Humidity Check It is important to check if the instrument responds to moisture 1.Cup hand over inlet or breathe into inlet for seconds 2.Do not block flow If M2K reads >2 ppm or ppbRAE reads >500 ppb, then the sensor needs cleaning

12 Hygiene/Search Mode Two main operating modes: Hygiene Mode: The factory default mode. After warm-up the meter samples continuously Search Mode: After warm-up the pump shuts off and “Ready…” is displayed.

13 Hygiene Mode/Basic User *Dashed (- - -) line is automatic return

14 Hygiene Mode/Advanced User *Dashed (- - -) line is automatic return

15 Hygiene Mode/Advanced User Change reference gas without entering Programming Mode Change measurement gas when reference gas is Isobutylene

16 Hygiene Mode Reading in ppm Gas information Calibration needed Wireless status Battery status Datalog Pump Status Press N/- to move to next screen

17 TWA/STEL/PEAK TWA reading STEL reading Peak reading Press Y/+ to clear Press N/- to move to next screen

18 Date/Time/Temp Date Time Internal temperature Press N/- to move to next screen

19 Gas Display Calibration Gas Measurement Gas Correction factor Press N/- to move to next screen

20 PC Communication Enter PC communication and stop sampling Press Y/+ to enter PC Comm mode –Press Y/+ to exit after communication is complete Press N/- to move to next screen

21 Alarm signals

22 Search Mode A discrete sampling mode can easily start/stop datalogging for many points Perfect for drum or headspace sampling Optional graphic screen

23 Optional Graphic Screen Using ProRAE Studio, set display to graphic display Or Leave display in ppm reading

24 Search Mode/Basic User *Dashed (- - -) line is automatic return

25 Search Mode/Advanced User Change reference gas without entering Programming Mode Change measurement gas when reference gas is Isobutylene

26 Programming Mode Press and Hold N/- and MODE to enter Programming Input password “0000” Or Press MODE

27 Programming Mode Navigate using interface of “Select,” “Back,” and “Next” Press “MODE” to exit Programming Y/+ to increase numerical values or confirm a question N/- to decrease numerical values or deny a question

28 Two-Point Calibration *Dashed (- - -) line is automatic return

29 Zero calibration Press Y/+ to select Zero Calibration Press MODE to return to main display Press N/- to select Span Calibration

30 Zero calibration If in fresh air, the M3K can be calibrated, The ppbRAE 3000 needs Zero grade air, or a Zeroing kit Press Y/+ to start calibration

31 Span Calibration The menu will return to calibration selection with Span Calibration highlighted –Using a Matched-flow regulator, tedlar bag, or 500 cc/min regulator, attach 100ppm Isobutylene for the MiniRAE 3000 or 10ppm Isobutylene for the ppbRAE 3000 Press Y/+ to enter Span calibration. Press N/- to skip Span calibration and return to Zero calibration. Press MODE to exit and return to the top calibration menu.

32 Span Calibration Turn on your span calibration gas. Press Y/+ to initiate calibration. Press N/- to abort calibration

33 Span Calibration Calibration is complete when instrument reads: Span 1 is done! Reading = xxx. ppm Instrument then returns to Zero Calibration menu Select MODE to return to regular Operations Instrument will then update settings

34 Power Off Hold for full 3 seconds Audible alarm will beep and unit will countdown 5 seconds Release when you see “Unit Off…” Unit will stay on if you release MODE key before countdown completes

35 Charging unit To Charge unit –Push instrument down on charger –Set back of unit against back wall of charger To remove unit from charger –Push down on instrument –Pull unit towards you

36 Removing battery Rubber boot stays on monitor First push down on tab Then pull battery from instrument

37 Charging battery Use back of charging station to charge battery externally –Push into contacts –Lay battery flat To remove battery –Push battery towards station –Lift battery off of charging station

38 Maintenance Clean PID Lamp & Sensor –When display creeps upwards after good zero –When PID responds to moisture –When movement of PID results in response on display No dirt build-up to foster a decrease in airspace resistance Clean SensorDirty Sensor Bias Electrode Sensing Electrode Bias Electrode Sensing Electrode Dirt build-up absorbs water and breaks down airspace resistance leading to sensor “leakage” or moisture response
