45. 45 3. Service and maintenance T4 is designed to require minimal service and maintenance. As with all electrochemical sensors however, these will require periodic replacement. i Ensure maintenance, service and calibration are carried out in accordance with the procedures in the manual and only by trained personnel. For further service or maintenance, contact your local Crowcon agent or regional office (see Section 7.2 ) .

19. 19 The screen displays the Quick View screen. The screen then displays the T4 serial number. The screen then displays the T4 firmware version. This screen displays the T4 ’s configured user name. This screen displays the sensors configured lower alarm levels. This screen displays the sensors configured upper alarm levels.

31. 31 2.7 T4 menu icons The following menu functions on the T4 display can be selected: Icon Title Action Home Return to Home page Information Displays unit status/configuration Zero Performs a sensor zero Peak Mode Displays peak gas readings Bump Performs a bump test Calibration Performs a Calibration STEL (Short Term Exposure Limit) Displays the current STEL value TWA (Long Term Exposure Limit) Displays the current TWA value

22. 22 This screen then displays the T4 serial number. This screen then displays the T4 firmware version. This screen then displays the T4 ’s configured user name. This screen then displays the sensors’ configured lower alarm levels. This screen then displays the sensors’ configured upper alarm levels. If a toxic sensor is fitted this screen then displays the STEL configured alarm levels (see Section 2.3.3 ).

44. 44 The fitment of the plate should then be checked to ensure a gas tight seal has been achieved. The bulb should be depressed whilst blocking the adjacent port with a finger; the T4 may at this point indicate an alarm on the O 2 sensor this is due to the pressure effect on the oxygen sensor. The hand aspirator bulb should not return to the rounded shape if a gas tight seal has been achieved. If the bulb does return to is normal shape, reposition the aspirator plate and repeat this test. Allow the O 2 sensor to stabilise before continuing. The sample hose must then be attached to the aspirator plate on the left hand side (as viewed from the front) adjacent to the base of the arrow on the aspirator plate. Place the sample tube into the area to be sampled and depress the aspirator bulb. Allow the bulb to return to its rounded shape and then depress the bulb again. Repeat this process to get a constant sample flow to the sensors. Every depression of the aspirator bulb should pull the sample approximately 25cm up the tube. Therefore to sample from a 5 meter hose – at least 20 aspirations will be required, however a minimum of 1 minute is recommended to ensure a stable sample is read. The maximum length of the sample hose allowable is 30m. It should be noted that for sample hose lengths greater than 5m the oxygen sensor may initially go into a falling alarm state for approximately 1 minute, due to pressure ef fects, before settling back down to read accurately.

28. 28 2.5 Accepting and Clearing Alarms The operation of alarms in terms of how they are cleared is dependent upon the alarm type and also the configuration option, which can be changed via Portables Pro 2.0 . The options are ‘latched’ and ‘non-latching’ and the functionality is described in the table below. i Alarm 2 cannot be configured and behaves as a latched alarm. Configuration Setting (Alarm 1 only) Instantaneous Alarm 1 Instantaneous Alarm 2 Latched An instantaneous alarm 1 can be cancelled by pressing the operator button but only when the gas level has dropped below the alarm level An instantaneous alarm 2 can be cancelled by pressing the operator button but only when the gas level has dropped below the alarm level Non-latching An instantaneous alarm 1 will not be latched and will return to a non- alarm state without user acceptance once the gas level has dropped below the alarm level An instantaneous alarm 2 can be cancelled by pressing the operator button but only when the gas level has dropped below the alarm level i While in alarm, T4 will continue to record levels of all the gases being monitored.

6. 6 PROLOGUE T4 Overview Thank you for purchasing T4 . At Crowcon we recognise the need for reliable and robust personal monitors which are sized to be worn and simple to use. T4 is a portable monitor capable of detecting up to 4 gases in a compact and wearable design. Focused on users and fleet managers alike, T4 offers application focused solutions giving greater operating time and reduced set up time. T4 is classified for use in hazardous areas and gives loud and bright audible and visual alarm indications as well as a vibrate alert. The front mount display is backlit for ease of use, and the simple single button solution makes using and training quick and easy.

55. 55 7. Appendices 7.1 Sensor Limitations The detector is not suitable for use in ambient temperatures above 55°C and electrochemical toxic gas sensors may be degraded, reducing life at these temperatures. W ater should not be allowed to collect on the sensors as this may impede gas diffusion. Use with care in wet or humid environments where water may condense on the sensors, and check response after use. Persistent exposure to high levels of toxic gas can shorten the life of toxic sensors. Toxic sensors may also be cross-sensitive to gases other than their specific target gas, and hence the presence of other gases may cause the sensor to respond. If unsure, contact Crowcon or your local agent. Use of high power radio transmitters in close proximity to the detector may exceed RFI immunity levels and cause erroneous indications. If such problems are experienced, remove antennae to a reasonable distance from the detector (e.g. 30 cm). Standard units detect flammable gases using a catalytic flammable sensor which operates in the presence of oxygen. It is advisable to check the oxygen concentration as well as the flammable gas concentration before entering a confined space. Oxygen levels below 10% will reduce a flammable gas reading. The performance of catalytic sensors may be permanently degraded if exposed to silicones, sulphur containing gases (such as H 2 S), lead or chlorine compounds (including chlorinated hydrocarbons).

20. 20 If a toxic sensor is fitted this screen displays the STEL configured alarm levels (see Section 2.3.3 ). If a toxic sensor is fitted this screen displays the TWA configured alarm levels (see Section 2.3.4 ). This screen displays the date the T4 ’s next calibration is due. This screen displays the date the T4 ’s next bump test is due. i This screen will only be displayed if bump test is configured via Portables Pro 2.0. This screen displays the T4 ’s date and time.

58. 58 Warranty Disclaimer Crowcon accept no liability for consequential or indirect loss or damage howsoever arising (including any loss or damage arising out of the use of the detector) and all liability in respect of any third party is expressly excluded.

21. 21 2. Operation ! Before turning T4 on, ensure it is in ‘clean air’ (i.e. outside, in normal air, away from any plant process or suspected gas location). This will allow T4 to be zeroed using clean air as the base point. If T4 is zeroed in contaminated air a false gas reading can result, or the zero could fail. 2.1 Turning on i T4 will not respond to gas until the startup sequence is complete. In ‘clean air’, turn on T4 by holding down the operator button for 3 audible short blips followed by one longer tone. T4 will warm up and go through a series of automatic processes as follows: Firstly a test screen will be displayed showing all the possible LCD segments and icons turned on. If T4 is switched on within 8 hours of being switched off, the following screen will be displayed for 10 seconds allowing T4 to retain TWA, STEL and peak readings (see Section 2.3.5 for more details on this feature). Simply press the operator button to retain, or do not click the operator button and allow countdown to expire. The screen then displays the Crowcon splash screen. This screen then displays the user’s company splash screen/slogan. i This screen will only be displayed if splash screen is configured via Portables Pro 2.0.

23. 23 If a toxic sensor is fitted this screen then displays the TWA configured alarm levels (see Section 2.3.4 ) This screen then displays the date the T4 ’s next calibration is due. This screen then displays the date the T4 ’s next bump test is due. i This screen will only be displayed if bump test is configured via Portables Pro 2.0. This screen then displays the T4 ’s date and time. If configured to do so, the last screen is the autozero screen. i This will operate as configured via Portables Pro 2.0. The instrument will then revert to the normal operation ‘home s creen’.

33. 33 2.8.3 Manual zero i A manual zero should only be carried out in ‘clean air’. The manual zero function allows T4 to be zeroed at any time. X With the home screen displayed, double click the operator butto n to access the menu functions screen.

X Ensure the calibration/bump test plate is fitted and the gas supply attached but not providing gas, before selecting the bump test function. X With the home screen displayed, double click the operator button to access the menu functions screen. X Single click the operator button repeatedly to scroll right until the menu icon is displayed and then double click the operator button to select. X The bump test countdown screen will then be displayed. X To initiate a bump test, press the operator button before the countdown is complete X The apply gas countdown screen will then be displayed and the test gas must now be applied. i If the operator button is not pressed before the countdown is complete, T4 will not perform a bump test and will automatically return to the home screen.

30. 30 2.6.3 Pellistor sensors Pellistor sensors (or catalytic beads) are specifically designed to sense explosive gases. The detecting element consists of small “beads” of catalyst loaded ceramic whose resistance changes in the presence of gas. 2.6.4 Pellistor saver mode Pellistor sensors can suffer degradation if powered while exposed to flammable gas concentrations greater than 100% LEL, and also if exposed to high levels of H 2 S or silicones. To reduce degradation T4 employs a Pellistor saver mode. When the flammable gas exceeds the pellistor saver threshold, th e detector will turn off the sensor for a minimum period of 200 seconds À . When pellistor saver mode is activated the user must immediately move to a clean air environment. After the defined period the sensor can be re-activated by a single click of the operator button Á once the instrument is in a clean air environment. After a stabilisation time ( Â ), if the gas level still exceeds the threshold then the sensor will be turned off and the cycle starts again. While in saver mode and the subsequent stabilise time, the gas level displayed on the LCD screen will indicate over range. As the sensor has been exposed to a gas level sufficient to cause a sensor over-range T4 should be gas tested to ensure no lasting damage has occurred. À Á Â

37. 37 2.8.6 Calibration i T4 calibration via the menu must be performed utilizing Crowcon quad gas of the following values H 2 S = 15ppm, CO = 100ppm, O 2 = 18%VOL and CH 4 = 50%LEL (2.2% VOL) i ‘Allow calibration’ must be enabled for the calibration to operate via the menu function, this can be configured utilizing Portables Pro 2.0. i A calibration can also be performed via Portables Pro 2.0 or via I-Test. i If utilizing gas extraction do not place the extraction outlet closer than 20cm to the calibration/bump plate as this may result in an incorrectly calibrated T4. The calibration function allows T4 to be calibrated at anytime. X Before starting, ensure the calibration/bump test plate is not connected and that the instrument is in clean air. X With the home screen displayed, double click the operator butto n to access the menu functions screen. X Single click the operator button repeatedly to scroll right until the menu icon is displayed and then double click the operator button to select. X The calibration countdown screen will then be displayed. X To initiate a calibration press the operator button before the countdown is complete. X The zero countdown screen will then be displayed and a zero will be performed when the countdown is complete. X A successful zero of a channel will display a tick on the screen. X If the zero is unsuccessful a cross will be displayed for each gas that fails, the calibration will fail and, if configured, the +v e safety™ LED will be illuminated red.

40. 40 2.9 Data Logging The data log records gas levels for all sensors and has capacit y of 45,000 logs (125hrs @10 sec intervals). All data logs can be downloaded from T4 via Portables Pro 2.0 . 2.10 Event logging Event logging records significant events occurring during T4 operation. The event log has a capacity of at least 1000 events. Events include: • Power on/off • Alarm 1 Activation • Alarm 2 Activation • STEL Alarm Activation • TWA Alarm Activation • Operator Acknowledgments • Calibration Events/Status • Bump Test Events/Status • Zero Events/Status • Low Battery • User Change • Pellistor Saver Mode • Insert Into I-Test station • Time Change/Set • Event Log Upload • Faults

15. 15 1.4 Fitting the calibration/bump test plate T4 is supplied with a calibration/bump test plate that can be used to carry out a daily bump test or a regular calibration. Place the cap into the groove on the left hand side of the T4 first À , ensuring the flat part of the cap faces the bottom of the T4 and the text is the correct way up, then click the right hand side in place Á . Refer to sections 2.8.5 and 2.8.6 for instructions on how bump test and calibrate utilising the calibration/ bump test plate via the T4 menu. Please note that automated bump testing and calibration of T4 is also possible via the dedicated T4 I-Test bump and calibration station. Please refer to manual M070002 I-T est User & Operator Manual for further details. Bump testing and calibration can also be undertaken utilising the Portables Pro 2.0 software and the calibration/bump test plate. i Once the gas test is complete, be sure to remove the calibration/bump test plate for general use as this will prevent gas reaching the sensors and may prevent T4 responding to gas. i The calibration/bump test plate must not be used in a hazardous area and is for safe area use only. Figure 5: Fitting the calibration/bump test plate À Á

16. 16 1.5 Fitting the external filter plate The external filter plate is an optional accessory incorporating filters that allow gas to pass through but protect the sensors from dirt and debris. The filter plate will protect the sensors making it easier to maintain T4 . Place the filter plate into the groove on the left hand side of the T4 first À , ensuring the flat part of the plate faces the bottom of the T4 , then click the right hand side in place Á . Figure 6: Fitting the external filter plate The filter plate is suitable for use in a hazardous area. The filter plate has been designed to operate with the charging accessories and does not need to be removed when inserting T4 in to the desktop charger, the ten-way charger or the T4 vehicle charger. i The filter plate should be replaced if the filters are damaged by substances that could affect the flow of gas to the sensors, like paints, grease or oils. À Á

34. 34 2.8.4 Peak Mode The peak mode function allows peak gas readings to be viewed at any time. The peak mode function can also be utilised for pre-entry checks, where T4 is to be lowered into a confined space. X With the home screen displayed, double click the operator butto n to access the menu functions screen. X Single click the operator button repeatedly to scroll right until the menu icon is displayed and then double click the operator button to select. X The screen opposite will then be displayed showing the peak readings for each gas. X After a few seconds the clear countdown screen will be displayed. X If you wish to clear the peak levels recorded, press the operator button once. X If the operator button is not pressed the display will continue to show the peak readings and the peaks will not be cleared. Peak readings will continue to be shown until the user exits peak mode. Peak mode can also be useful during pre-entry checking of a confined space. Peak mode can be selected and T4 lowered into the area to be checked. When T4 is subsequently removed the peak gas readings will be displayed on the screen. Any alarm can be cancelled and the display will continue to indicate the peak gas reading. To exit the peak mode function the operator button must be double clicked to return to the menu screen and then double clicked again to return to the home screen. i Ensure that T4 is returned to the home screen after the peak function is no longer required, this will ensure T4 is displaying current gas readings and not peak values. i Peak readings are cleared to clean air nominal values. i Peak readings are not monitored for the duration of a bump test or calibration.

13. 13 1.3 Charging & battery indications Charging should only take place in non-hazardous (safe) areas. To charge T4 , simply plug it into either the desktop charging unit À or the ten-way charging unit Á (see Figure 2 below). Ensure T4 fits firmly on to the power connector of whichever charging unit is used. Figure 2: Charging options Referring to Figure 3 below, when T4 is powered off and placed in a charger, the +ve Safety™ LED will indicate charging status. Whilst T4 is charging the LED will flash red À , then when fully charged the LED will flash green Á . Figure 3: Charging LED status À Á À Á

25. 25 2.3 Alarms T4 has the following types of alarm: • Low battery • Instantaneous • Time weighted average (TWA) • Short term exposure (STEL) 2.3.1 Low battery alarm T4 will indicate a low battery alarm when the battery has a maximum of 30 minutes remaining life. i This warning should be acknowledged immediately by pressing the operator button. The sounder will then emit an audible double blip every 5 seconds and the display will flash the battery empty icon . In addition, if configured to do so (see Section 1.6 ), the +ve Safety™ LED will change state and illuminate red. When the low battery alarm is displayed the operator should finish their current activity and move to a safe area before the 30 minutes battery life expiries. 2.3.2 Instantaneous alarm T4 will go into alarm immediately if the level of any gas configured to be detected, exceeds acceptable limits. A minimum and maximum level is set for oxygen, whilst the remaining gases will cause an alarm for rising gas levels. T4 will indicate an alarm state ‘1’ or alarm state ‘2’ according to which configured gas level has been exceeded. When T4 is in instantaneous alarm the appropriate ‘bell’ alarm symbol or will flash repeatedly on the screen to indicate which level of alarm has been triggered, the gas type and unit icon will flash to indicate which gas has triggered the alarm, the sounder will emit a tone, alarm LEDs will flash red and blue, and the T4 will vibrate. i If +ve Safety™ is configured the +ve Safety™ LED will also be illuminated red. The LED will return to green when the instantaneous alarm is cleared.

41. 41 2.11 Bump Test Crowcon recommends regular bump tests to confirm sensor operation. This involves applying a known composition of the correct gas to each sensor to verify sensor response and alarm function. Organisational specific Health and Safety regulations should be adhered to, and a number of flexible and simple solutions are available. T4 implements a speedy bump test in which gas is applied to trigger alarm level 1. T4 bump strategy can be configured via Portables Pro 2.0 . A bump test can be performed on T4 in one of the following ways: • Via T4 menu and utilizing the calibration/bump test plate (see Section 2.8.5 ) • Via Portables Pro 2.0 utilizing the calibration/bump test plate • Via the I-Test gas station where all testing is fully automated. I-Test is an intelligent stand alone gas test and calibration solution, suitable for small and large fleet users alike, I-Test offers simple fully managed testing with data capture as well as the ability to update configurations. Please refer to I-Test User & Operator Manual M070002 If any channel fails speedy bump then T4 should be calibrated, please refer to Section 2.8.6 . i From the 1st November 2010, EN60079-29 part 1 has been harmonised under the ATEX directive 94/9/EC. Therefore to comply with the ATEX directive, portable apparatus sensing flammable gases should have a functional check with gas before each day of use. Other testing regimes may be employed depending on local circumstances.

12. 12 1. Set-up 1.1 Prior to use Before use, T4 should always be checked for any signs of physical damage. T4 uses a Lithium Ion (Li-ion) battery pack and should arrive with sufficient charge to be used straight out the box. However, if this is the first time of use, the battery will require charging to attain the full operating time (see Charging & battery indications on page 13 ). For battery run times, see the table on page 46 . 1.2 T4 orientation Figure 1: T4 À D-ring à Sounder Æ Sensor apertures É Serial Number Label Á Visual & audible alarms Ä Operator button Ç Alligator clip  +ve Safety™ indicator Å LCD display È Certification label À Ã È Ç Ä Â Å Æ Á É

29. 29 2.6 Sensors T4 is available with the following sensor options: • Oxygen Sensor • Carbon Monoxide Sensor (Electro-chemical) • Hydrogen Sulphide Sensor (Electro-chemical) • Flammable gases sensor (Pellistor) T4 also offers a Hydrogen immune carbon monoxide sensor if required. T4 flammable gas sensor is configured and calibrated at the factory to detect methane. i T4 flammable sensor must only be calibrated with methane. However T4 can be configured to detect other flammable gases. The flammable gas to be detected and the correction factor can be changed in T4 via the PC Application, Portables Pro 2.0 . The table below shows the flammable gases T4 (Type 2) can be configured to detect. i Correction factors must only be used if the flammable sensor has been calibrated with methane. Flammable Gas Correction Factor Response Time T90 Hydrogen 0.72 < 10 seconds Methane 1.00 < 20 seconds Propane 1.83 < 30 seconds Butane 1.83 < 30 seconds Pentane 2.22 < 30 seconds 2.6.1 Oxygen sensor This sensor is in the form of an electro-galvanic fuel cell which is an electrical device used to measure the concentration of oxygen gas in the ambient air. Set as default with both higher and lower alarm levels. 2.6.2 Electro-chemical sensors Electrochemical gas sensors measure the volume of a target gas by oxidising or reducing the target gas at an electrode and measuring the resulting current.

17. 17 1.6 +ve Safety™ +ve Safety™ is a quick and easy indication of the operating status of T4 , this status is indicated by a front mounted LED. When the +ve Safety™ LED is illuminated green, this indicates that the unit is functioning as required and no further action is necessary, such as bump testing or calibration. This enables users and supervisors to easily see that the employee is safe and following work procedures. When the +ve Safety™ LED is illuminated red this indicates that one of the following situations has occurred and will require user action: • Battery is critically low: The battery has a maximum of 30 minutes runtime before it will be completely depleted. This will be accompanied by additional alerts signifying a low battery, see Section 1.3 . • Bump test is required: Bump test has failed or exceeded the due date required to meet site procedures. The bump test due date can be reviewed via the information menu, see Section 2.8.2 . • Calibration is due: Calibration has failed or exceeded the due date required to meet the site procedure. The calibration due date can be reviewed via the information menu, see Section 2.8.2 . • T4 is in gas alarm: This could be a high or low gas alarm, or a STEL or TWA alarm. T4 display will indicate which alarm type has been activated by the relevant icon being displayed on the screen, see Section 2.3 . • T4 fault: T4 must be reviewed by trained personnel for repair as T4 has detected an internal fault. An appropriate fault warning will also have been shown on the display. Figure 7: +ve Safety™ indicators

14. 14 T4 battery icon contains a maximum of 3 segments and will indicat e charging by sequentially filling the battery segments and repeating this process. When fu lly charged all three segments will be displayed. When T4 is powered up and placed in a charger, the battery icon will indicate charging status but the +ve Safety™ LED will indicate +ve Safety™ status, NOT charging status. If T4 is switched on whilst charging, after approximately 30 minutes of being on charge T4 will automatically power down and continue charging, showing the battery charging icon in the bottom right of the screen. Whilst T4 is not charging the battery icon segments, indicate the battery’ s state of charge. These are only shown when T4 is not placed in a charger. When fully charged and all three segments are shown À , the battery typically has a maximum of 18 hours run time* (see Figure 4 below). When T4 changes from three to two segments Á the battery typically has a maximum of 12 hours run time. When T4 changes from two segments to one, the battery typically has a maximum of 8 hours run time  . When the battery icon is flashing with no segments à the battery typically has a maximum of 30 minutes run time before the battery will be depleted. Figure 4: Battery Charge Status i Should T4 be deep discharged, the charging indication will not be shown until T4 has been charging for 1 hour and the operator button has been pressed.

42. 42 2.12 Calibration Calibration should be carried out if any channel fails a bump test or if T4 has exceeded its calibration due date. A calibration can be performed on T4 in one of the following ways: • Via T4 menu and utilizing the calibration/bump test plate (see Section 2.8.6 ) • Via Portables Pro 2.0 utilizing the calibration/bump test plate • Via the I-Test gas station where all testing is fully automated. I-Test is an intelligent stand alone gas test and calibration solution, suitable for small and large fleet users alike, I-Test offers simple fully managed testing with data capture as well as the ability to update configurations. i I-Test is suitable for regular periodic calibrations but Portables Pro 2.0 must be utilised for calibration when sensors or PCB’s have been replaced. Please refer to I-Test User & Operator Manual M070002. T4 calibration due dates are automatically updated upon a successful calibration; the factory default interval is set at 180 days. Calibration should be undertaken with the appropriate Crowcon supplied gas cylinder or equivalent. i The flammable sensor should always be calibrated with methane gas. If the calibration fails this may be indicative of a more serious sensor issue, including the need to replace sensors. The T4 should then be serviced. 2.13 New sensor calibration/service Servicing or the fitment of a new sensor can only be undertaken by a suitably trained technician using Portables Pro 2.0 software and the appropriate gas. In addition calibration should be performed as required by local or organisational regulations. In the absence of suitable evidence, such as a field assessment by a competent person, Crowcon recommend regular service and calibration every 6 months.

48. 48 6. Troubleshooting 6.1 T4 Fault / Warning / Information Descriptions 6.1.1 Service Faults If T4 detects an internal fault that requires T4 to be returned for servicing ‘Service’ message as shown will be displayed on the screen, where ‘XX’ represents a specific fault ID code. If T4 displays a service fault message T4 will not operate normally and must be returned to a service centre for further investigation and repair. No user intervention is possible. 6.1.2 Fault/Warning/Information Messages T4 may indicate a fault or warning that requires user to intervention to resolve, or T4 may provide additional information on instrument status. The table below provides further details on these faults, warnings and information messages including the fault message/symptom, the cause and the user action required. Fault codes as listed in the table below are not displayed in the display message in all cases, but any active fault code can be viewed via the information screen as detailed in Section 2.8.2 .

26. 26 2.3.3 Short term exposure limit alarm (STEL) For each toxic gas being monitored T4 stores information about the gas levels detected to determine the average exposure over a 15 minute running period. If the av erage levels detected over the defined period of time exceed predetermined levels, T4 will go into alarm (STEL is not monitored for the duration of a bump test or calibration). The STEL alarm level can be configured via Portables Pro 2.0 . In the alarm state, the STEL symbol on the screen will flash indicating the STEL levels have been exceeded, the sounder will emit a tone, alarm LEDs will flash red and blue, and the T4 will vibrate. i If +ve Safety™ is configured the +ve Safety™ LED will also be illuminated red. The LED will return to green when the STEL alarm is cleared. 2.3.4 Time weighted average alarm (TWA) For each toxic gas being monitored T4 stores information about the gas levels detected to determine the average exposure over an 8 hr running period. If the averag e levels detected over the defined period of time exceed predetermined levels, T4 will go into alarm (TWA is not monitored for the duration of a bump test or calibration). The TWA alarm level can be configured via Portables Pro 2.0 . In the alarm state, the TWA symbol on the screen will flash indicating the TWA levels have been exceeded, the sounder will emit a tone, alarm LEDs will flash red and blue, and T4 will vibrate. i If +ve Safety™ is configured the +ve Safety™ LED will also be illuminated red. The LED will return to green when the TWA alarm is cleared. 2.3.5 TWA Resume function* TWA Resume allows TWA, STEL and peak readings to be retained after T4 has been switched off for a period of time, for example while an operator travels to a new location. This prevents recent toxic exposure history from being lost and the associated risk of the operator exceeding safe exposure levels. If T4 is switched off for less than 15 minutes and the TWA Resume function is selected (see below), T4 will retain the STEL, TWA and peak gas values when powered back on. If T4 is switched off for more than 15 minutes but less than 8hrs, and the TWA Resume function is selected (see below), T4 will retain the TWA and peak gas values when powered back on but the STEL values will be cleared. If T4 is switched off for more than 8hrs the TWA Resume function will not be available in the start up sequence and T4 will clear the TWA, STEL and peak gas values when powered back on.
