Fuses There are three fuses that are used in the Beacon 200. When purchased at the same time as gas sensors, the Beacon 110 will be factory calibrated and ready to use. Internal Description This section describes the internal components of the Beacon 200. This hub is typically used for power wiring and may already have conduit or other fittings installed because of this. Install an appropriately rated cable bushing or conduit in the left conduit hub on the bottom of the Beacon 110 housing. During the 30 second delay, the output follows the detector output. If a 4-20 mA transmitter detector head is installed, then all calibration adjustments are made at the detector head while calibration gas is being applied to the detector.
The wall mounted controller is approximately 10. These sensors may be connected directly to the unit or may be wired remotely. Turn off or disconnect mains power to the Beacon 200. If a direct connect detector head is installed, then all calibration adjustments are made at the Beacon 110 after calibration gas is applied to the detector. This is a powerful and economical device for one point gas detection. See the detector head instruction manual for instructions on how to connect wires to the detector head. Apply calibration gas to the detector.
This chapter also describes the Beacon 200 in alarm 1, alarm 2, and fail conditions and suggests response to these conditions. The Beacon 110 ships complete with a wall mounting kit for easy installation. It simultaneously displays gas type and concentration on the digital backlit display. The 10A rated relays are strong enough to fully power external alarms. If an application is very demanding, for example if a combustible or toxic gas is present often and in significant concentrations or the environment is not well controlled, then more frequent calibration than every 3 months may be necessary. Beacon 200 Model Specifications The Two Channel Wall Mount Controller Beacon 200 Model features a backlit alphanumeric display that is easy to read and practical with 20 characters per line and a 4 line capacity.
When calibration gas is applied, the Beacon 110 will freeze the display gas reading at the highest level reached while the gas was applied lowest for an oxygen detector head. The output at the recorder output terminals is a 4 - 20 mA signal that is proportional to the detection range of the detector head connected to the Beacon 110. See the detector head instruction manual for instructions to apply zero air to the detector. Alarm 2 Condition Indications When the gas reading of an active channel reaches the alarm 2 setpoint, the Beacon 200 senses an alarm 2 condition. Power horns or external alarms with its 10 amp rated relays.
The Beacon 200 includes audible and visual alarms that warn you of hazardous gas conditions. The digital display has backlighting and simultaneous readout of the gas type and concentration. Controlled by a microprocessor, this is the industry's most economical two point controller. Battery backup option available Controls 4 internal push buttons for setup, programming, and calibration. Charge time varies depending on the battery size and how much the battery was depleted. Sensors can be mounted directly at the Beacon 110 housing, or can be wired remote from the controller. Verify that the detector head wiring is flickers often.
The model is shipped with an easy to install wall mounting kit. The display asks if you want to calibrate channel 1 in this example a 4- 20 mA detector head. When zero air is applied to the Beacon 110 during a fresh air adjustment, the Beacon 110 will freeze the display reading at the lowest highest for an oxygen detector response and the Beacon 110 will continue to display this reading and retain it in its memory until the fresh air adjustment procedure is completed. If set as CanReset, the strobe can be turned off while the Beacon 110 is in an alarm 1 condition by pressing the reset switch. Sensors can be mounted directly at the Beacon 200 housing, or can be wired remotely from the controller. The alarms are designed to activate when it detects potential environmental hazards and when the unit may be malfunctioning. It includes a troubleshooting guide for problems you may encounter with the Beacon 200.
Electrochemical diffusion detector assembly for toxic gases. Verify that the detector head wiring is readings flicker experiencing false properly shielded see the detector Display often. The unit is affordable, versatile, user-friendly, and easy to install. The alarm system features an audible and visual alert system. For the purposes of this description, the housing door is considered the front of the monitor. The Beacon 110 long life gas sensors will typically last for over 2 years.
Turn on or connect mains power to the Beacon 200. Has digital display, relays, modbuss and 420mA Outputs at the sensor. Terminal Strips The Beacon 200 includes four terminal strips for external wiring connections. The 4 - 20 mA output signal will not indicate current readings and the relays will not resume operating normally until the Beacon 110 is in normal operation again. The power wiring may disrupt the transmission of the detector head signal to the monitor. Usable up to 500ft using 18 gauge wire, 1000ft with 16 gauge wire and 5000ft with 14 gauge wire from the controller.
Verify that the Beacon 110 enters normal operation after its warm-up sequence. Open the Beacon 200 door and place the power switch in the off position. Sensors can be mounted directly at the Beacon 110 housing, or can be wired remote from the controller. While the Beacon 200 is in normal operation, press and hold the reset switch button for 3 seconds. The Beacon 110 is a powerful, low cost fixed system controller for one point of gas detection. The Beacon 110 Controller is a controller for a single, fixed system of gas detection. See the next section, Entering the Calibration Program, for instructions to enter the Calibration Program.
