Agenda

Agenda

  • Self-cleaning

  • User Interface

  • Turning on the MiniRAE 3000

  • Recommended Daily Start-up procedure

  • Hygiene mode & displays

  • Alarm signals

  • Programming mode

  • Charging station


Minirae 3000 self cleaning

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)


Minirae 3000 self cleaning duty cycle

MiniRAE 3000: Self-Cleaning duty-cycle

Normal operating pump

Pump during 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)


User interface

User Interface

LEDs and flashlight

  • User Interface:

    • Y/+: tests alarms

    • N/-

    • MODE (on)

    • Flashlight on/off key

Display

MODE key

Flashlight

on/off key


Control buttons

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


Start up turning on

Start-up: Turning On

  • Press and hold

  • Release Mode key

  • Self-test

  • Final display


Start up programmable zero calibration

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


Start up lamp alarm

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


Start up humidity check

Start-up: Humidity Check

  • It is important to check if the instrument responds to moisture

    • Cup hand over inlet or breathe into inlet for 10-20 seconds

    • Do not block flow

      • If M2K reads >2 ppm or ppbRAE reads >500 ppb, then the sensor needs cleaning


Hygiene search mode

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.

Two point calibration

Two-Point Calibration

*Dashed (- - -) line is automatic return


Zero calibration

Zero calibration

  • Press Y/+ to select Zero Calibration

  • Press MODE to return to main display

  • Press N/- to select Span Calibration


Zero calibration1

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


Span calibration

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.


Span calibration1

Span Calibration

  • Turn on your span calibration gas.

  • Press Y/+ to initiate calibration.

  • Press N/- to abort calibration


Span calibration2

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

Maintenance

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

Clean Sensor

Dirty Sensor

Bias Electrode

Bias Electrode

Sensing Electrode

Sensing Electrode

No dirt build-up to foster a decrease in airspace resistance

Dirt build-up absorbs water and breaks down airspace resistance leading to sensor “leakage” or moisture response
