Safety Information: Read First

WARNING

  1. Substitution of components may impair Intrinsic Safety.
  2. Honeywell recommends performing a bump test prior to each day’s use to confirm sensor response and alarm activation by exposing the detector to a concentration of target gas that exceeds the low alarm set point. Honeywell also recommends performing a bump test if the detector has been subjected to physical impact, liquid immersion, an Over Limit alarm event, custody changes, or anytime the detector’s performance is in doubt. Calibrate the detector after a failed bump test. Always bump test and calibrate in a fresh air environment.
  3. Detectors in hibernation mode are not functional.

CAUTION

  1. Activate the detector before the activation date on the package.
  2. This product is a gas detector, not a measurement device.
  3. Ensure that the sensor grill is free of dirt, debris, and is not obstructed.
  4. Clean the exterior with a soft, damp cloth.
  5. For optimal performance, periodically zero the sensor in a normal atmosphere ) that is free of hazardous gas.
  6. Portable safety gas detectors are life safety devices. Accuracy of ambient gas (20.9% v/v O 2 reading(s) is dependent upon factors such as accuracy of the calibration gas standard used for calibration and frequency of calibration. Honeywell recommends performing a calibration at least once every 180 days (6 months).
