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

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.

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.

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
