XNX Honeywell Gas Detector
How to Calibrate Your XNX Honeywell Gas Detector
This Honeywell article will walk you through the steps necessary to calibrate your XNX Honeywell gas detector. It will cover EC, mV, and infrared sensors, as well as the General status screen. In addition, you’ll learn how to read the calibration certificate. Here are some tips:
EC sensor type
The XNX Universal Transmitter from Honeywell Analytics is a highly flexible gas transmitter that can be used with Honeywell Analytics’ entire range of gas sensor technologies. It simplifies installation, reduces costs, and offers a single, customizable interface for all gas detection applications. This device is compatible with various sensor types, including EC, mV, and IEC sensors.
XNX universal transmitters also support other EC sensors. The EC sensor type can be programmed for the full operating temperature and humidity. The XNX transmitter is also capable of calibrating other sensors for a range of gases and humidity levels. There are methods for configuring the alarm levels and settings as well, such as alarm detection. For further assistance, please visit the XNX gas detector calibration pdf.
Infrared sensor type
In order to calibrate your XNX Honeywell gas detector, you need to know the limits of the sensors you are using. This calibration document will help you determine the range and span of sensors you need to install. The calibration procedure can take anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour. To calibrate your detector, you can download the calibration pdf. Just make sure to read the instructions carefully. You should use the calibration sheet only if you are certain that your equipment is properly calibrated.
First, you need to determine the type of gas that your transmitter is calibrated to detect. This information can be found on your transmitter. After that, you must calibrate the transmitter according to the manufacturer’s specifications. After calibration, you can monitor the gases in the atmosphere. For more information on how to calibrate your XNX detector, refer to the manual provided with your unit. To calibrate a sensor, follow the steps described below.
General status screen
To ensure the accuracy of the sensor, the XNX Honeywell gas detector should be calibrated. This is done on the General status screen of the XNX Universal Transmitter. The General Status Screen shows a warning code and icon indicating the concentration of gas. The device will restart monitoring if it is interrupted or turned off. To learn how to calibrate your XNX Honeywell gas detector, check out the instructions below.
To calibrate your Honeywell detector, simply plug it in and follow the instructions on the calibration sheet. After this, turn the detector on. You’ll be taken to the General Status screen where you can check the sensor’s performance. The LCD shows the status of the transmitter, the alarm set point and the scale. You can also make changes using the non-intrusive magnetic switches. To prevent false alarms, the sensor uses automatic inhibition to reduce false alarms at the control panel.
Functional gas testing
Before you begin monitoring for hazardous gases, you should first calibrate your XNX gas detector. This is essential for safety purposes, as high off-scale readings may indicate explosive concentrations. In order to calibrate your detector, you must first zero it and replace the sensor. Once the calibration procedure is complete, the transmitter will prompt you to exit the process and leave it in inhibit mode.
A zero calibration procedure improves the sensor’s performance and is recommended whenever the detector is used outside of normal operating conditions. The bump test, however, is not a reliable calibration method and is strictly a confidence check. It uses cross-sensitivities to test the detector for various gases. Bump tests, on the other hand, should only be used when a sensor is functioning properly and is not in critical conditions.
