the trouble may cause and could not make normal gas detection.

4-2. Installation place

CAUTION
Do not install where direct sun beam is given or there is drastic change of temperature

When install, avoid the direct sun beam place or that of drastic change of temperature. Because dew
takes place inside of instrument and it may not follow the drastic change of temperature.
Do not install where the vibration or shock may take place.

As this is composed of fine electronics parts, install where the vibration and shock should not
take place and be stable.
Separate the detector from the noise generating source (Main unit and cable).

Avoid to installing at the place where high frequency is generated around.


l Do not put detector side by side or near with the noise source.
l Do not make cable at parallel wiring nor be near.
Do not install at the place where the detection gas is deposited around.

Do not install and make gas detection at the place where the sample gas is deposited. In this
case, make as detection by extending the sampling hose etc.

Machine that grounding construction is not

Be sure to make grounding of any machine when install.

4-3. Caution at system installation

CAUTION

Unstable power and noise may cause error of performance and alarm.
For the system to use this detector, it is required to make design based on this
manual description.

(1) Use stable power


While the system gets stable at power on and power failure, the external output and alarm contact may be on
and the care for it must be taken. In such case, use the standby battery or take an appropriate action in the
receiver side. Supply the following power to this detector.
Power voltage

100VAC-15% to 220VAC+20% (50/60Hz)

Power failure

Approx. 100msec.

tolerance time

(For power failure of over 100msec, it re-starts.)


To warrant the continuous operation, install the standby
battery outside.

Others

Do not connect with power involving high power load and high
frequency noise.
According to requirement, use line filter and separate it from
noise source.

(2) Designing to consider heat radiation


When install the closed self-standing control panel, mount the fans in the upper and lower part.

13

INS-1509E (REV1.0)

(3) Lightning measures


Lightning surge

Lightning measures

Grounding

There is the problem point Lightning when make outdoor wiring


of cable at factory or plants etc or when make a parallel wiring in
the same duct with the cable in from outdoor even at the indoor
wiring.
If the lightning is a huge generation source, the cable is a
reception antenna and there is the case that cable connecting
instrument is broken.
It is impossible to prevent the generation of lightning.
If the cable should put in metal tube, laid in the underground, it is
impossible to prevent the inductive lightning surge generating
from the thunder.
There is not the complete countermeasure for it but the following
method can be considered.
Make the suitable treatment accordingly.
a) The transmission signal route is arranged for connection by
the optical fiber cable etc.
b) Countermeasure by the lightning arrester
(Cable safety retainer)
There is the way to install the lightning arrester just before
the field apparatus and the central control station. The
position of the lightning arrester installation is at each point
of cable laid out from the outdoor to the indoor.
The lightning arrester builds in the circuit to remove the
surge voltage to be the source for the damage of field
apparatus (Protection resistor, zero diode etc and is designed
to protect the apparatus. But as the signal may be
attenuated due to the lightning arrester, check the action and
it is required to use.
Regarding detail, contact a
manufacturer of lighting arrester.
Surge noise shall be generated from the thunder lightning or
except it. To protect instrument from these cause, be sure to
make grounding.

*.In the lightning rod, there is the circuit to remove the surge voltage to be a cause of damage
from field instruments. By installing the lightning rod, the signal may be attenuated. When
install the lightning rod, it is required to check the performance in advance.

14

INS-1509E (REV1.0)

(4) Alarm contact


Alarm contacts shall be used only for external buzzer and alarm light, and do not use it for the
controlling use (such as solenoid valve control etc).
When control the external load, the bad influence may be given to the system according to the load
characteristics. In such case, the following countermeasure shall be taken to stabilize the action and
protect the contacts.

<How to consider alarm contacts against inductive load>


The spec for alarm contact of GP-641A is described by the conditions of resistance load.
When use the inductive load for alarm contacts, the very high reverse electromotive voltage may be
generated and the following trouble tends to be produced.
l
l
l
l

Contact part of relay is melted adhesively and the contacts can no work.
High voltage is put inside of indicator/alarm unit and then, unspecific electrical parts may be
damaged.
As it is big noise, the trouble action may be taken by the reckless drive of CPU.
Irrespective of inductive load, there is the possibility of unforeseeable noise intrusion for contacts.
Above trouble may be generated.
CAUTION

l
l

The inductive load shall not be used in principle (Do not use fluorescent lamp and motor).
When use the inductive load, make the contact amplification outside, but the outside relay coil
belongs to the inductive load, use the relay driven by the low voltage (within AC100V) and it is
protected by an appropriate surge killer.

*. As the inductive load, there are following samples.


Patlight, External relay, Buzzer, Siren, Fan, Fluorescent lamp, Motor etc.
