Installation

Honeywell DG..T Pressure Switches for Gas--- Acceghjugf CAUTION

Please observe the following to ensure that the DG..T is not damaged during installation and operation:

  • Continuous operation with gases containing more than 0.1 %-by-vol. H2S or ozone concentrations exceeding 200 µg/m3 accelerate the ageing of elastomer materials and reduce the service life.
  • Use approved sealing material only.
  • Dropping the device can cause permanent damage. In this event, replace the entire device and associated modules before use.
  • Check max. ambient temperature – see page 5 (Technical data).
  • When using silicone tubes, only use silicone tubes which have been sufficiently cured.
  • Vapours containing silicone can adversely affect the functioning of electrical contacts.
  • Condensation or vapours containing silicone must not be allowed to get into the housing. At subzero temperatures, malfunctions/failures due to icing can occur.
  • When installing outdoors, place the DG..T in a roofed area and protect from direct sunlight (even IP 65 version).
  • Avoid strong impact on the unit.

▷ Installation position as required, preferably with vertical diaphragm. Then the switching point pS corresponds to the scale value SK set on the hand wheel. In other installation positions, the switching point pS will change and no longer correspond to the scale value SK set on the hand wheel. Check the switching point.

Honeywell DG..T Pressure Switches for Gas--- AcceghjugfCAUTION
If port 4 is at the top, IP 65 will not be satisfied.

▷ The DG..T must not be in contact with masonry.
Minimum clearance 1″ (25 mm).
▷ Ensure that there is sufficient installation space.
▷ Ensure unobstructed view of the hand wheel.

  1. Disconnect the system from the electrical power supply.
  2. Shut off the gas supply.
  3. Ensure that the pipeline is clean.

Honeywell DG..T Pressure Switches for Gas--- AcceghjugfCAUTION
Port 4 connects the upper diaphragm chamber with the micro switch. Do not connect port 4 to pipes carrying gas.

▷ The pressure switches are supplied with an integrated vent limiter. In the event of a diaphragm tear, the vent limiter limits the escape of gas to less than 1.0 CFH of natural gas at 2.8 psi (DG..6T) or 7 psi (DG..10T – DG..500T). If necessary, port 4 (1/8″ NPT) can be used to connect the venting line.
▷ A filter pad at port 4 protects the electrical contacts in the DG..T from dirt particles in the surrounding air or in the medium.
▷ Filter pad for port 4, see PartDetective.

Wiring

Honeywell DG..T Pressure Switches for Gas--- AcceghjugfCAUTION
To ensure that the DG..T is not damaged during operation, note the switching capacity, see page 5 (Technical data).
▷ In the case of low switching capacities, such as 24 V, 8 mA, for example, we recommend using an RC module (22 Ω, 1 μF) in air containing silicone or oil.

  1. Disconnect the system from the electrical power supply.
    Honeywell DG..T Pressure Switches for Gas---Disconnect the system▷ DG..FT, DG..NT: the NO-to-COM connectionis interrupted if the pressure drops (contacts 3and 2 open).
    DG..T, DG..HT: the NC-to-COM connection isinterrupted if the pressure rises (contacts 3 and1 open).

Adjustment

▷ The switching point is adjustable via hand wheel.

  1. Disconnect the system from the electrical power supply.
  2. Detach the housing cover.
    ▷ Tightening torques, see Technical Information bulletin DG at www.docuthek.com.
  3. Connect an ohmmeter.

    * Adjusting tolerance = ± 15% of the scale value.
    ** Difference between switching pressure and possible reset.
    ▷ If the DG..T does not trip at the desired switching point, correct the adjusting range using the hand wheel. Relieve the pressure and repeat the process.

Pressure switches with manual reset

▷ DG..NT locks off if the pressure drops to the value set using the hand wheel.
▷ DG..HT locks off if the pressure rises to the value set using the hand wheel.
1 Reset the pressure switch using the manual reset.
▷ Requirement for reset: DG..NT: the pressure must have risen at least to the set switching point plus the pressure differential between the switching pressure and possible lock-off. DG..HT: the pressure must have dropped at least to the set switching point minus the pressure differential between the switching pressure and possible lock-off.
▷ For details of the pressure differential between the switching pressure and possible reset, see table on page 3 (Adjustment).

Tightness test

Honeywell DG..Installation position-- Check all used

1 Shut off the downstream gas pipeline close to the valve.
2 Open the valve and the gas supply.
▷ Check all used ports for tightness.

Maintenance

In order to ensure smooth operation, check the tightness and function of the DG..T every year, or every six months if operated with biogas.
