11. Introduction 5 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 1.5 Certification labels XgardIQ is an intelligent and versatile gas detector and transmitter compatible with Crowcon’s full range of sensor technologies. XgardIQ features an Exd flameproof electronics/terminal area fitted with an individual Galvanic Isolator that provides an Intrinsically Safe interface to the display module and sensor module. The product is then certified Exd ia and is suitable for use in ATEX/IECEx Zone 1 and Zone 2 hazardous areas. Note: if no certification label is fitted to the XgardIQ , the detector is not certified for use in hazardous areas. Diagram 4: XgardIQ certification label Diagram 5: XgardIQ warning label

62. Operation 56 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 3.12 Pellistor saver mode In order to protect pellistor-type sensors from damage when exposed to high gas concentrations, XgardIQ incorporates a ‘Pellistor saver’ mode. If the signal from the sensor exceeds 90%LEL the system removes power from the sensor. The analogue output signal will continue to indicate an over-range gas concentration (ie 23.5mA max) and the display will show ">100%LEL" along with an hour-glass symbol. A +ve Safety warning state will also be activated. This state will latch for 200 seconds (to comply with European performance standard requirements) after which it can manually be reset by pressing the Enter key. Power is restored to the sensor and the pre-set stabilization period is re-applied to allow the sensor to settle. It is advisable to check that no flammable gas remains in the area of the detector before re-setting. If the gas concentration has dropped below 90%LEL the sensor with revert to normal operation, if the concentration is still above 90%LEL the transmitter will re-activate Pellistor saver mode. It is advisable to bump-test the sensor after the Pellistor saver mode has been reset to ensure that sensitivity has not been affected.

Installation 18 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 2.5.4 RS-485 Modbus Connections Refer to Section 7 for connection and operation details. 2.5.5 HART Communication Connections Refer to Section 8 for connection and operation details. Note: comprehensive instructions for connecting to, and communicating with detectors using the HART or Modbus protocols are provided in the following documents: • M071023 XgardIQ Modbus Instructions • M071024 XgardIQ HART Instructions

89. Functional Safety Manual 83 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English Reliability assessment is a statistical process for applying historical failure data to proposed designs and configurations. It therefore provides a credible target/estimate of the likely reliability of equipment assuming manufacturing, design and operating conditions identical to those under which the data was collected. It is a valuable design review technique for comparing alternative designs, establishing order of magnitude performance targets and evaluating the potential effects of design changes. The actual predicted values cannot, however, be guaranteed as forecasting the precise number of field failures which will actually occur, since this depends on many factors outside the control of a predictive exercise. Failure rates (symbol λ ), for the purpose of this prediction, are assumed to be constant with time. Both early and wear-out related failures would decrease the reliability but are assumed to be removed by burn in and preventive replacement respectively. 9.5 Fault indication whilst in Inhibit mode The functional safety standard EN50402:2010 stipulates that any "special state" (eg detector inhibited) should be indicated by an output relay. For compliance with the standard the Fault relay must activate when the detector is in zero/calibration or bump test mode (or manually placed into inhibit). This functionality is provided only when the appropriate tick box is checked using the Detectors Pro software. By default detectors will be configured so that the Fault relay (where fitted) does not operate as described above (ie is not EN50402 compliant). Contact Crowcon for functional safety data.

9. Introduction 3 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 1.4 Model configuration The configuration of each XgardIQ is identified by a label fitted on the main body. Please quote the product name, product code and serial number when contacting Crowcon for advice or spares. Diagram 1: XgardIQ Model / Serial Number Label 1.4.1 Product Options 1.4.1.1. Relay Module XgardIQ can optionally be fitted with a relay module containing Alarm 1, Alarm 2 and Fault relays for switching local alarms, valves etc. The relay module may be fitted at the time of order, or retro-fitted at any point. To fit a relay module, isolate power from the transmitter and plug the module in to the allotted space (see Diagram 3 ). The relay module will be recognized and configured when power is re-applied.

18. Installation 12 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 2.3 Remote sensor housing mounting and cabling The XgardIQ sensor module can be mounted up to 15 metres from the transmitter to enable the sensor to be installed in the ideal location for sensing the gas, whilst keeping the transmitter at a level that can easily be viewed and operated by maintenance personnel. Diagram 12: Remote sensor housing installation 2.3.1 Required accessories: Remote sensor housing and cable assembly of the appropriate length: 5 metres (part number S012325) 15 metres (part number S012331) Note: remote sensor housing and cable assemblies are supplied with a cable retaining cap which must be fitted as shown in Diagram 13 . The assembly cable must not be cut or modified in any way Diagram 13: Fitting the cable retaining cap The remote sensor lead plugs into the XgardIQ transmitter sensor module port. The cable retaining cap must be fitted to ensure that the sensor lead cannot be accidentally pulled-out.

40. Operation 34 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English Smart Bump The test verifies that a sensor responds correctly to a specified concentration of test gas. Once activated, gas of a concentration within the limits displayed must be applied to the sensor using a calibration cap. XgardIQ allows a time period (30 seconds maximum by default) for the sensor to respond. The menu will automatically step to the next screen once the sensor signal responds to the gas. If the sensor signal does not change within this period the test will be failed. The test gas must remain on the sensor for the remainder of the test. Over the next time period (typically 30-90 seconds depending on sensor type) XgardIQ monitors the sensor reading and the test will be passed if the final reading falls within the range shown in step 1 of 5. The user is prompted to remove the gas and confirm when the sensor signal has reverted to normal levels. The result of the test is them displayed (Passed or Failed). Note: the analogue output and Alarm relays (if fitted) are inhibit whilst the test is performed. Note: for pellistor sensors an option may be provided to bump-test with an alternative gas (e.g pentane) which may be more easily available than the target gas.

22. Installation 16 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English In order to avoid ‘earth loops’ and potential signal interference, cables should be grounded at one end only (ie either at the detector or control panel/safe area): not both. Cable screens: screened cables should be used to prevent signal interference from nearby electrical equipment or cables. Cable screens must be earthed at one end only; usually at the control panel. 2.5.2 Cable Connections Two five-way removable field cable connectors are provided enabling connections to be ‘looped’ to an adjacent detector. Connector/terminal functions are shown in Diagram 14 . The connectors and sockets are colour coded to identify their correct location. As standard XgardIQ is shipped with the top-right side cable entry open for field cable connection. The following instructions therefore assume that primary connections are made to the corresponding right-hand (black) field cable connector. Diagram 14: Field Cable Connector functions Note: the transmitter will not function if the field cable connectors are swapped (e.g. a pre-wired orange connector is plugged into the black socket). No damage will occur to the transmitter in this instance. Warning: power must be isolated before attempting to remove the XgardIQ lid. Never attempt to remove the lid when flammable gas is present. To access the electrical connections, the lid of the XgardIQ transmitter must be removed. It is essential that the grub-screw is loosened before attempting to un-screw the lid. When re-fitting the lid, ensure that it is fully tightened and that the grub-screw is re-secured to prevent any possibility of the lid loosening due to vibration. Black connector Orange connector

48. Operation 42 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English Bump Test This function enables the user to configure the Bump test parameters. Gas sense time This parameter defines the time period in which the transmitter must detect a response from the sensor to the applied bump test gas. X Press the key to accept the displayed value or press the key until the icon flashes and then press the key to edit the value. X Use the and keys to set the required value and then press to return to the value screen. X Press the key to save this value and return to the Bump Test menu or press the key so the icon flashes and then press the key to abort the change and return to the Bump Test menu.

80. 74 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 7. RS485 Modbus configuration 7.1 General XgardIQ provides RS-485 Modbus RTU communications as standard. This function can be used in conjunction with the 4-20mA analogue signal to transmit data to a central control system, or used for multi-dropping detectors on an addressable network. Up to 32 XgardIQ transmitters can be linked in a Star or Bus configuration depending on the sensor type fitted and power requirements for switching ancillary devices such as alarms from the same DC supply. Guidance is given in Section 7.2 . Two five-way removable field cable connectors are provided enabling connections to be ‘looped’ to an adjacent detector. Connector/terminal functions are shown in Diagram 22 . The connectors and sockets are colour coded to identify their correct location. As standard XgardIQ is shipped with the top-right side cable entry open for field cable connection. The following instructions therefore assume that primary connections are made to the corresponding right-hand black field cable connector. Diagram 22: Field Cable Connector functions Note: The transmitter will not function if the field cable connectors are swapped (e.g. a pre-wired orange connector is plugged into the black socket). No damage will occur to the transmitter in this instance. Black connector Orange connector

82. RS485 Modbus configuration 76 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 7.2 Wiring topology Option 1: using Modbus for information only. The safety function is provided by the analogue 4-20mA signal to a PLC/DCS or conventional gas detector control system. Two additional cable cores are used to transfer Modbus data over the RS-485 platform to a PC or SCADA system. The PC/SCADA system can then display detector status information continuously or periodically as required. The Modbus connection can be ‘multi-dropped’ to several detectors if required. The Modbus data cables from multiple transmitters can be connected in Star or Bus topologies if required, however the 4-20mA signals must be run individually back to the control system. Option 2: using Modbus as the primary signal. In this use-case the control system will control the safety functions (alarms, shut-downs) as well as displaying status information from a single detector or an addressable network of detectors. 7.2.1 Star connection In a star-connected topology all detectors are wired to a central point, which is usually the control panel. The RS485 A and B signals are connected together at the star point. The bus should then be terminated at the star point with a single 110 ohm termination resistor. The length of each arm of the star may not exceed 750 metres. 7.2.2 Bus connection In a bus-connected topology all transmitters are wired to a linear arrangement, usually with the control panel at one end. A classic situation is a tunnel installation, with XgardIQ transmitters installed at regular intervals. Two 110 ohm-terminating resistors should be fitted: one at each physical end of the bus. Diagram 23: Bus connection wiring topology

14. 8 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 2. Installation WARNING • XgardIQ is ATEX and IECEx certified for use in Zone 1 and Zone 2 hazardous areas. Two protection concepts have been deployed in its design: Flameproof (Exd) and Intrinsic Safety (Exia) delivering an overall certification code: Exd ia. Although the design incorporates Intrinsically Safe (Exia) elements (ie the display module and sensor modules), the overall concept is essentially Flameproof (Exd) and therefore XgardIQ cannot be used in Zone 0 applications as a purely Exia product could be. An I.S. isolating circuit designed by Crowcon is incorporated onto the circuits housed within the Exd section of the XgardIQ transmitter enclosure. This provides the necessary protection to the I.S. elements of the product. XgardIQ cannot and must not be connected to a control system via an I.S. barrier such as a Zener Barrier or Galvanic Isolator. Please refer to the specifications table on page 42 for certification details. Installation must be in accordance with the recognized standards of the appropriate authority in the country concerned. Warning: a dummy sensor module must be fitted to the XgardIQ transmitter to maintain ingress protection if installation is conducted significantly ahead of commissioning. • For further information please contact Crowcon. Prior to carrying out any installation work ensure local regulations and site procedures are followed. • The equipment must be earthed using the cable gland and steel armoured cable.

41. Operation 35 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English Display This function runs an animation on the screen so any missing pixels will be obvious. Relay This function enables the Alarm and Fault relays (if fitted) to be tested. Each relay can be switched individually between its current state and active state. Move the cursor adjacent to the relay to be tested and then press the enter key to switch the relay. Warning: external devices connected to the relay contacts (e.g. audible/visual alarms, valves, control system inputs etc.) will be activated using this function. Watchdog Warning: this function will reset the XgardIQ microprocessors and re-start the transmitter. This tests that the system re-starts correctly. No configuration data or event log data will be lost, but the analogue output signal will be temporarily deactivated and the fault relay (if fitted) will change state. The control system and any other devices to which the transmitter is connected should be inhibited/isolated before using this function. X To carry out the Watchdog function, press with the icon flashing. X To cancel this function, press so the icon is flashing then press to return to the Test menu.

39. Operation 33 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English Bump Test A bump test can be performed at any time, or when a warning message is displayed. A failed bump test will activate a Bump test due warning on the XgardIQ transmitter. X If necessary, use the or key to select which type of test is required and press . S peedy Bump This is a quick method of verifying that a sensor is working correctly whilst consuming the minimum quantity of test-gas. Once activated, gas of an appropriate concentration to exceed the Alarm 1 threshold must be applied to the sensor using a calibration cap. XgardIQ allows a time period (30 seconds maximum by default) for the sensor to respond beyond the Alarm 1 threshold. The user is prompted to remove the gas and confirm when the sensor signal has reverted to normal levels. The result of the test is them displayed (Passed or Failed). Note: the analogue output and Alarm relays (if fitted) are inhibited whilst the test is performed.

85. 79 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 8. HART Communications 8.1 Overview HART communications can be enabled as an option at the time of order only. HART enabled transmitters can be identified via the display menu. The HART (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer) Protocol is the global standard for sending and receiving digital information across analogue wires between smart devices and control or monitoring systems. More specifically, HART is a bi-directional communication protocol that provides data access between intelligent field instruments (gas detectors, level gauges, pressure transmitters etc) and host systems. A host can be any software application from technician's hand-held device or laptop to a plant's process control, asset management, safety or other system using any control platform. HART communications is available as an option on XgardIQ in following formats: 8.2 Local hand-held HART communicator connection Industry-standard HART communicators are used on industrial sites for maintaining and calibrating a host of instruments. The key benefit of HART is site maintenance staff can use a common communicator to maintain all of their safety and process instruments. The user simply needs to upload and install the DD (Device Descriptor) file to their communicator to access the XgardIQ functions. Hand-held HART communicator connection is made using clips to connect to the I.S. pins located on the front of the display module. The pins are not polarity-specific: the clips can be connected either way round. Diagram 24: IS connection location I.S. (Intrinsically Safe) pins for hand-held HAR T communicator connection.

81. RS485 Modbus configuration 75 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English The signals on the RS485 terminals conform to the EIA/TIA-485 standard, which means that the common mode range is -7V to +12V with respect to the 0V terminal. Note that not all RS485 manufacturers agree on the polarity of the A and B signals. If the wiring does not work one way, users should switch the RS485 A&B wires. There is no risk in making the wrong connection. The communication settings are 38400 bps, two stop bits and no parity. When compiling an interface for a control system, it is important to consider the amount of time it takes for the system to collect information from each detector in turn. The fastest speed at which multiple detectors can be polled is 14 detectors per second; practical conditions may reduce this to 7 per second. Users must ensure that the arrangement allows alarm signals to be registered within acceptable time limits. It is also important to ensure that the system can supply enough power to keep all the detectors working. To calculate the amount of power required in a linear bus connection, see Section 7.3 , Cabling requirements , on page 77 . Note: XgardIQ will operate as a Modbus ‘Slave’ and must be connected to a host ‘Master’ control system for which an interface will need to be compiled. A ‘Modbus Map’ document is available containing all of the connection and address information necessary to compile a suitable Modbus software interface. .A detailed ‘ XgardIQ Modbus Instructions’ document is available containing all of the connection and address information necessary to compile a suitable Modbus software interface. This document can be downloaded from: www.crowcon.com/uk/products/fixed-detectors/xgardiq.html Note: Event-log data cannot be uploaded via Modbus; only via Crowcon’s Detectors Pro software.

20. Installation 14 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 2.4.8 Collector Cone (part number: S012340) Clips to the XgardIQ remote sensor housing to aid detection of lighter than air gases such as hydrogen or methane. Includes a pipe spigot for application of bump test gas. 2.4.9 Sun Shade (part number: S012339) Protects the detector from elevated temperatures due to direct sunlight. 2.4.10 Duct mounting kit (part number: C01894) For ducts between 300mm and 3m wide, air-flows from 4 to 20m/s. Note: this accessory must only be used in conjunction with the remote sensor housing. 2.4.11 PC communications leads USB leads enable configuration of the XgardIQ transmitter or sensor modules via a Windows PC. Detectors Pro software is available for download from the Crowcon website. These leads are not suitable for use in a hazardous area. E070045 XgardIQ transmitter PC comms cable. E070044 XgardIQ sensor module PC comms cable. 2.4.12 Sensor module removal tool (part number: C02186) For removing the sensor module. Insert the tool and lever downwards to release the module from its connector.

86. Hart Communications 80 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 8.3 HART over the 4-20mA signal line The HART protocol is super-imposed over the XgardIQ transmitter 4-20mA signal to provide the additional data listed. In this mode of operation the safety function is performed by the 4-20mA signal (connected to a conventional controller or PLC/DCS). A HART device can then be connected in parallel with the signal connections to read the XgardIQ transmitter status information. HART devices include hand-held communicators, a PLC with HART connectivity or a PC-based Asset Management System (AMS) communicating via a HART modem. 8.4 XgardIQ transmitters multi-dropped on a HART addressable network It is possible for multiple XgardIQ transmitters to be connected to a control system solely using HART addressable communications. In this case each XgardIQ must be set with a unique HART address and the safety function (eg signal to DCS system, activation of alarms or valves) may be provided using the XgardIQ relay module. Diagram 25: Multiple XgardIQ connection Note: To connect multiple XgardIQ transmitters in HART addressable mode each transmitter must be set to “Loop mode disabled” mode using Detectors Pro software or the HART master system to deactivate the analogue signal.

91. Warranty 85 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English Repair Warranty Product repairs within the warranty period will be free of charge for both labour and parts. Should a full service / calibration also be due, then this is agreed with the customer to be carried out at the same time as the repair and the service element will be chargeable.

The +ve (24V nominal) supply connects to terminal 1, the 0V core connects to terminal 2 and the Signal core connects to terminal 3 Care must be taken to ensure the cables are correctly connected before applying power. Note: Crowcon strongly recommends the use of screened cables to prevent potential signal interference. The cable screen should connected to the 0V connection at the control panel only (not within the XgardIQ transmitter). XgardIQ features a unique auto-sense function: it automatically detects whether the control system is configured as 4-20mA current Sink or Source and sets itself appropriately. If necessary XgardIQ can be manually set to Sink or Source using the Configure/ Analogue Output/Mode menu (refer to page 38 ). 2.5.3 Relay connections XgardIQ may optionally be fitted with a relay module which provides volt-free contacts rated 5A 230Vac maximum. These relays can be used for switching local alarm devices, valves etc. Alarm 1, Alarm 2 and Fault relays are provided; refer to page 39 for relay configuration. Relay module contact connections are shown below, the bottom-right-hand cable entry can be used for connecting local device cables to the relay module (the factory-fitted stopping plug must be removed first and a suitably certified Exd cable gland must be used). Note: when switching mains voltages, in order to avoid problems due to electrical interference, do not run AC cables from relay contacts in the same conduit or cable tray as the DC supply or signal cable.

35. Operation 29 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English Once the gas type has been selected and the calibration level set, proceed as follows: X Connect the calibration cap to the XgardIQ and then connect the appropriate gas cylinder to the adapter. X When the gas flow is stable press the key. The calibration will begin. W hen calibration is complete, remove the gas and calibration cap and wait for the gas level to return to normal before pressing the key. If the calibration was successful the success symbol will be displayed. X To return to the previous screen at any stage, press the key so the icon is flashing and then press . When the gas is applied the display will read the concentration relative to the actual applied gas. Upon a successful calibration the corrected target-gas concentration will be shown on the ‘Success’ screen 5/5. Note: the cross-calibration gas options (eg propane, pentane etc) will be listed as appropriate to the sensor module fitted. * Note: The gas concentration level for cross-calibration options is pre-set and cannot be adjusted.

61. Operation 55 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 3.11 Alarm Mode The current gas level will be indicated by the numeric display, and also by the gas level indicator bar. For gases not normally present (eg methane) the gas level should be 0 and the gas level indicator bar should be black. Rising alarms will be set in this instance. For gases expected always to be present (eg oxygen) the normal gas level (20.9% in this example) should be shown and the gas level indicator bar will be illuminated yellow proportional to the gas concentration. Most oxygen sensor applications will require falling alarms (to warn of oxygen depletion) and thus the gas level indicator bar will be illuminated yellow beyond the alarm set-points normally. As the gas level approaches an alarm set-point the alarm bar will begin to flash. When an alarm set-point is passed: • The colour of the alarm bar will be inverted • The alarm icon will flash • The display brightness will be set to maximum • The red Alarm LED will activate for level 1 alarms, and flash once per second for level 2 alarms • If fitted; the appropriate alarm relay will activate Note: alarms may be set as latching or non-latching. The red Alarm LED and alarm relay (if fitted) will automatically de-activate on non-latching alarms when the gas level returns to normal. The red Alarm LED and alarm relay (if fitted) will remain active on latched alarms until the Select/Enter/Reset key is pressed. Alarm relays may have on-delays and/or off-delays applied. For details of relay configuration see the Alarm and Relay section on page 39 . 3.11.1 Alarm settings To comply with the requirements of EN50104: 2010: where Alarm 1 and Alarm 2 are in the same direction (eg both rising), Alarm level 1 can be set as latching or non-latching. The higher level alarm (Alarm 2) must be latching only. Where one rising, one falling alarm are set, both alarms must be latching.

60. Operation 54 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 3.10 Changing sensor modules XgardIQ sensor modules are Intrinsically Safe meaning they can be “hot-swapped” (removed/inserted whilst the transmitter is powered in a hazardous area). If required, sensor modules can be temporarily removed to a safe area for calibration (for example a laboratory) and re-inserted, or swapped for a new sensor module without needing a hot work permit. XgardIQ can be configured with a range of permissions to control the types of sensor module that can be inserted and also, where required, to restrict this facility to authorised personnel. The available configuration options can be adjusted using Detectors Pro software, and are as follows: 1. Accept same gas type only with acknowledgement: requires acknowledgement via a password protected menu. 2. Accept same gas type only without acknowledgement. 3. All changes allowed with acknowledgement: requires acknowledgement via a password protected menu. 4. Accept same gas type without acknowledgement, and changed with acknowledgement via a password protected menu. XgardIQ transmitters ordered with a sensor module will be configured as per option 1. XgardIQ transmitters ordered without a sensor module will be configured as per option 3. When inserting a sensor module, first ensure that the ‘quad-ring’ within the XgardIQ transmitter is present and is in good condition. Ensure the triangular moulding aligns with the corresponding cut-out in the transmitter enclosure, and press home firmly. Do-not apply pressure to the sensor itself as damage may occur. A tool is available for removing the sensor module. Insert the tool and lever downwards to release the module from its connector Diagram 19: Quad-ring location Note: XgardIQ sensor modules are fully temperature compensated; it is therefore perfectly acceptable to calibrate in a laboratory and then re-install the module in an XgardIQ transmitter where the ambient temperatures are higher or lower. Quad-ring Sensor module removal tool

79. Fault finding 73 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 6.7 Analogue Output XgardIQ actively monitors the analogue output signal; if a problem is detected (eg a wiring fault or a sink/source configuration error at the transmitter or control panel) the transmitter will latch into Fault state and the analogue output will be set at 1mA. A message stating “Analogue output feedback fault” will be displayed. To reset this state correct the wiring/configuration error and either power-cycle the transmitter, or utilise the Watchdog test function (see page 35 ). 6.8 Analogue Output Simulation To test a transmitter without it being connected to a control panel, connect a 24Vdc supply to the +V and 0V terminals (terminals 1 and 2) and connect a wire-link between the 0V and Sig terminals (terminals 2 and 3). This will enable the transmitter to operate in Healthy state. If an analogue output feedback fault is displayed check the Mode is set as ‘Auto Sense’ (see page 38 ). 6.9 Data retention All configuration data and logged events are stored in nonvolatile memory, and thus will be retained indefinitely whilst the transmitter power is isolated, or during storage and transit. A ‘super-cap’ is fitted to retain the time and date during temporary power losses (up to 24 hours) and during a Watchdog test, however the time and date may be lost and revert to 01/01/2000 if power if the super-cap becomes discharged. In this instance, after re-powering the detector, new events will be stored with a date starting from 01/01/2000 until the time and date has been reset by the operator. 6.9.1 Default settings Relay Defaults: Fault relay: Normally energised Alarm relays: Normally de-energised, Rising alarm (toxic and flammable gas sensors; one rising, one falling alarm for oxygen sensors), Latching, On delay and Off delay set to 0 seconds. Analogue Output Defaults: Mode: sink-source auto-detect at power-on. Fault level: 1mA Warning level: 2mA Inhibit level: clean air (4mA for toxic, flammable gas sensors, 17.4mA for oxygen sensors) Power-on inhibit: 2mA (applies for the stabilisation period of the sensor)

10. Introduction 4 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 1.4.1.2. HART Communications HART communications can be provided both over the analogue signal and via local I.S. terminals for diagnostics using any HART asset management system or hand-held device. Note: the HART option must be specified at the time of order and cannot be retro-fitted to an XgardIQ transmitter. Relay and HART enabled detectors can be identified by the detector product code and also by accessing the Information/About/Fitted Modules screen on the XgardIQ display (refer to Fitted Modules on page 23 ). Diagram 3: Relay module and space/connector for the Foundation Fieldbus module 1.4.1.3. Sensor Modules XgardIQ is available with a factory-fitted sensor module, a remote sensor housing (enabling the sensor to be mounted up to 15 metres from the transmitter) or without a sensor module. Option 1 factory fitted module: the transmitter will be configured with an operating range and alarm levels appropriate to the sensor module ordered. The sensor module will be fully calibrated and tested with the transmitter and then packed within its own carton ready for insertion during detector installation . Option 2 remote sensor housing: the transmitter and sensor module will be configured and shipped as described above. The sensor module can then be installed into the remote sensor housing ordered with the detector. Option 3 without a sensor module: where the XgardIQ is to be installed potentially months ahead of scheduled commissioning, it can be supplied without a sensor module. This avoids the possibility of the sensor being poisoned or expiring whilst inactive. Pre- calibrated sensor modules can be delivered and installed prior to commissioning; the transmitter will read the correct configuration from the sensor module on insertion.

88. 82 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 9. Functional Safety Manual 9.1 Introduction The following sections provide detail on the certification of XgardIQ in accordance with the IEC 61508 and EN 50402 Functional Safety standards. Information is given on the features considered in the safety case, maintenance requirements and data to enable XgardIQ to be integrated into Safety Instrumented System (SIS). 9.2 XgardIQ Safety Function To measure the concentration of flammable, toxic or oxygen gas and indicate the measurement by means of a 4-20mA output. Failures in respect of the safety function will be detected by the hardware and associated firmware. They will be revealed as an output signal of less than 3.6mA or more than 21mA. Where a relay module is fitted, failures in respect of the safety function will be revealed via the Fault relay contact. Alarm conditions will be revealed via a proportional analogue output signal in the range 4-20mA. Where a relay module is fitted, alarm conditions will be revealed via the alarm 1 and Alarm 2 relay contacts. The XgardIQ display function, RS-485 Modbus function and HART communications function are excluded from the functional safety assessment. 9.3 Diagnostic Interval Diagnostic functions are continuously monitored. The system Watchdog must be tested during the annual proof test: XgardIQ must be re-started using the Watchdog function (refer to page 33), or power-cycled, annually as part of the maintenance programme. 9.4 Constraints Failure rates are constant. A proof test conducted at least once a year will identify all un-revealed failures. Repairs have a mean time to repair of 8 hours; this assumes that a trained and competent engineer, and spare parts are available locally. It is assumed that the user makes use of that diagnostic facility provided via the OLED Display and/or PC interface in order to minimise potential product down time.

83. RS485 Modbus configuration 77 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 7.3 Cabling requirements 7.3.1 Calculating the minimum level of power required The more XgardIQ detectors connected to the linear bus, the greater the power required to run the system. To calculate the power required for a particular setup, it is necessary to know the cable resistance between each pair of XgardIQ detectors. A current of a maximum 0.2A must be allowed for each ‘hop’ between each transmitter (this assumes the highest power configuration for each transmitter: pellistor sensor, relays energized). The voltage to be applied can be calculated by estimating the voltage drop across each ‘hop’ – at the end at least 14V must remain to ensure that the last XgardIQ functions correctly. Follow the steps outlined below and the sample calculation shown in the next section to calculate for specific applications. 1. The voltage must not fall below 14V, so start the calculation by setting the voltage at the last XgardIQ in the line at that value. 2. Each XgardIQ may draw up to 0.2 A. Calculate the cable voltage loss of the first ‘hop’ between detectors by taking the ‘aggregate current’ to be 0.2A, and multiply this by the cable resistance of the ‘hop’ between the last and the last but one XgardIQ . 3. Add this voltage drop to the initial 14V to get the lowest acceptable voltage at the last but one XgardIQ . Add 0.2 A to the value for the ‘aggregate current’ to get to 0.4 A, the minimum current running through the last but one ‘hop’ of the bus. Multiply this by the cable resistance for the last but one ‘hop’ to get the next voltage drop. 4. Repeat this process for each XgardIQ , accumulating the voltage losses that will occur between each XgardIQ . 5. The maximum detector voltage of 32V must not be exceeded.

27. Operation 21 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English In normal operation: • The gas level will be indicated by the numeric display, and also by the gas level indicator bar. • The rotating logo/confidence indicator is active to demonstrate that the detector is functioning. • The green Power LED is illuminated in a steady state, blinking off once every four seconds to demonstrate that the detector is functioning. • The blue +ve Safety LED is illuminated in a steady state to indicate that the detector is operating safely. Note: the analogue output signal will become active approximately five seconds after power is applied to the transmitter. The signal will initially be at the level configured in the ‘Power-on Inhibit’ menu: 1mA, 2mA, 3mA or Clean Air (4mA for most sensors, 17.4mA for oxygen sensors). See page 38 for details. The analogue output will commence representing the sensor signal from approximately 30-60 seconds from initial power-up. Some sensors need a longer time period to stabilise after-power-up and thus this initial start-up time will depend on the default time programmed within the sensor module. Contact Crowcon for advice on individual sensor stabilisation periods. If the XgardIQ transmitter has been in storage or transit for a long time period the ‘super- cap’ that maintains the current date and time is likely to have discharged and the display will show Time/date lost error when first powered-up. See page 44 for instructions on re-setting the date and time. X If the diagnostic tests are not successful, an error screen will be displayed. For information refer to Section 6 : Fault finding X Make a note of the error message (or take steps to rectify the error - refer to Section 6 : Fault finding ) and then press the key to remove the error message. If there is more than one error message, the next error message will be displayed.

30. Operation 24 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English Peak Gas This option displays the highest level of gas to which the sensor has been exposed since the transmitter was last power-cycled ( Since Power- On ) and since the sensor module was initially calibrated in the Crowcon factory ( Ever ). This information is permanently stored within the sensor module (not the transmitter) and can be used for diagnostic purposes. For example unusually short sensor life may be due to a sensor module being exposed to extreme gas concentrations. Peak Temperature This option displays the highest ambient temperature to which sensor has been exposed since the transmitter was last power-cycled ( Since Power-On ) and since the sensor module was initially calibrated in the Crowcon factory ( Ever ). This information is permanently stored within the sensor module (not the transmitter) and can be used for diagnostic purposes. For example unusually short sensor life may be due to a sensor module being exposed to extreme ambient temperatures. 3.5.1.3.

15. Installation 9 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 2.1 Location The XgardIQ or, where applicable, the remote sensor housing, should be mounted where the gas to be detected is most likely to be present. The following points should be noted when locating gas detectors: • To detect gases which are lighter than air, such as methane, sensors should be mounted at high level. To detect heavier-than-air gases, such as flammable vapours, sensors should be mounted at low level. • When locating detectors consider the possible damage caused by natural events e.g. rain or flooding. For detectors mounted outdoors in very hot regions Crowcon recommend the use of a sun shade (see Section 2.4.9 , Sun Shade (part number: S012339) , on page 14 ). • Consider ease of access for functional testing and servicing. • Consider how the escaping gas may behave due to natural or forced air currents. Mount XgardIQ in ventilation ducts if appropriate (see Section 2.4.10 , Duct mounting kit (part number: C01894) , on page 14 ). • Consider the process conditions. For example, butane is normally heavier than air, but if released from a process which is at an elevated temperature and/or pressure, the gas may rise rather than fall. • Location of oxygen sensors requires knowledge of the gas that may displace the oxygen. For example, carbon dioxide is denser than air and therefore is likely to displace oxygen from low levels upwards. • Sensors should be mounted at head height (1.5m nominally) to detect gases of a similar density to air, assuming that ambient conditions and the temperature of the target gas are nominally 20 ̊C.

31. Operation 25 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English Note: Calibration and Bump test intervals are factory set within the sensor module and can only be modified using Crowcon’s Detectors Pro software (see Section 2.4.11 on page 14 for details). Calibration due dates are typically set to 180 day intervals, with the actual date calculated in the transmitter from the ‘Current’ time and date. By default, the Bump test function is disabled and the due date shown on this screen will read “---“. The Bump test function can be activated using Crowcon’s Detectors Pro software (see Section 2.4.11 on page 14 for details) and bump test intervals are typically set to 90 days. On Time This option displays the total elapsed time since the transmitter was last power-cycled or when the last Watchdog test was performed (see page 35 ). 3.5.1.4. Status The Status menu contains a list of unresolved Fault or Warning messages. If the amber Fault LED is active on the transmitter, but no error message is shown on the screen, use this menu to identify the cause(s). If no faults exist the screen will just display ‘> Back’. Multiple faults will be listed. In the example opposite the fault status is ‘Bump test due’ and more detail (ie a status code) can be displayed by selecting the specific warning. See Section 6 Fault finding for more information. 3.5.1.5. +ve Safety™ The +ve Safety menu contains a list of unresolved +ve Safety messages. If the blue LED is flashing on the transmitter, but no message is shown on the screen, use this menu to identify the cause(s). If no +ve Safety events exist the screen will just display ‘> Back’. Multiple +ve Safety events will be listed. See Section 6 Fault finding for more information. 3.5.1.6. Sensitivity The figure shown is calculated from the amplifier gain applied to the sensor signal at the last successful calibration. It may be used as an indicator of remaining sensor life (100% indicating that the sensor is performing as per the initial factory calibration).

7. 1 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 1. Introduction 1.1 Crowcon XgardIQ concept The Crowcon XgardIQ is an intelligent and versatile gas detector and transmitter compatible with Crowcon’s full range of sensor technologies. XgardIQ incorporates a bright OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) display with clear and comprehensive status information in a range of languages and is available fitted with the following sensor module types: • Toxic • Oxygen • Pellistor XgardIQ can also be installed with a remote sensor housing, having a range of up to 15 metres from the transmitter. Providing analogue 4-20mA signal and RS-485 Modbus signals as standard (see Section 7 ), XgardIQ is optionally available with Alarm and Fault relays and HART communications. Alarm and fault relays featuring heavy-duty changeover contacts rated 230Vac 5A are available at purchase, or may be added at any time after installation. HART communications can be provided both over the analogue signal and via local I.S. terminals for diagnostics via any HART asset management system or hand-held device. The 316 stainless steel enclosure is available with three M20 or ½”NPT cable entries. Where XgardIQ is to be installed potentially months ahead of scheduled commissioning, it can be supplied without a sensor module. This avoids the possibility of the sensor being poisoned or expiring whilst inactive. The XgardIQ transmitter is supplied with a dummy sensor module to maintain dust and water ingress protection, the required sensor module may then be delivered for installation during commissioning. ATEX and IECEx certified for use in Zone 1 and Zone 2 hazardous areas, XgardIQ has been designed for long-life operation in extreme envi ronments. Offering rugged construction and a wide operating temperature range from -40°C to +75°C (depending on sensor type), XgardIQ is suitable for the most demanding applications. For further information about accessories for the XgardIQ see Section 2.4 on page 13 and for spare parts, see Section 5 , page 59 .

56. Operation 50 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 3.7 Commissioning Warning: Prior to carrying out any work ensure local regulations and site procedures are followed. Never attempt to unscrew the lid of the XgardIQ transmitter when flammable gas is present. Ensure that the associated control panel is inhibited so as to prevent false alarms. Note: Where an XgardIQ transmitter has been installed a long time ahead of commissioning, a dummy sensor module should have been fitted to maintain ingress protection. The dummy sensor module should be removed and replaced with the sensor module (having first checked the quad-ring is in place and in good condition) with the appropriate gas type prior to commissioning. 3.7.1 Applying Power 1. Open the XgardIQ transmitter by unscrewing the lid in an anticlockwise direction (having loosened the retaining grub-screw first). 2. Check that all electrical connections have been made and are correct as per Diagram 14 . 3. Unpack the sensor module and carefully insert it fully into the transmitter (or remote sensor housing). Oxygen sensors only: Warning: A label is fitted over the sensor on oxygen sensor modules prior to shipment from Crowcon . The label isolates the oxygen sensor from air to minimize sensor life usage during storage and transit. It is essential that this label is removed prior to commissioning or before putting the sensor module into use. 4. Apply power to the detector and ensure a minimum supply voltage of 14V dc is present (see Supply Voltage display on page 23 ). 5. Allow the sensor to stabilise for the time period shown on the datasheet supplied with the sensor module. An hour-glass symbol will be shown whilst the sensor is stabilising. 6. XgardIQ should now operate as described in Section 3.4 : Start up on page 20 . 7. Verify the time and date are correct on the XgardIQ display and adjust if necessary. 3.7.2 Sensor Zero Sensors should normally be zeroed before attempting calibration. This function should be carried-out in ‘clean air’ (ie normal oxygen levels with no target gas presence) for most sensors. Sensors for gases that are normally present in the ambient environment (eg oxygen, carbon dioxide) can only be zeroed by applying 100% nitrogen to the sensor. The analogue output signal will be inhibited to the level configured in the ‘Inhibit Output’ menu (ie 1mA, 2mA, 3mA or ‘Clean Air’) whilst using the Zero function. Refer to Section 3.5.2.1 on page 26 for instructions on using the Zero function.

59. Operation 53 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 3.9 Bump Test and Calibration Due Function XgardIQ warns the user when a bump test or calibration is due. Calibration and Bump test intervals are factory set within the sensor module and can only be modified using Crowcon’s Detectors Pro software (see Section 2.4.11 on page 14 for details). Calibration due dates are typically set to 180 day intervals, with the actual date calculated in the transmitter from the ‘Current’ time and date. A ‘Calibration reminder’ message can also be set to appear at the required time before calibration is due (eg 30 days). ‘Calibration reminder’ will only be displayed and activate a +ve Safety warning; it will not affect the analogue output, fault LED or Fault relay. Calibration Due and Bump Test Due functions can be set with the following options: • None: no dates will be set and XgardIQ will not prompt for bump test or calibration • Reminder: a message will be shown on the display and a +ve Safety event will be triggered. The screen message can be accepted but the +ve Safety indication will remain until the sensor has been bump tested or calibrated. • Warning: The Fault LED will activate and the analogue output will be set according to the configuration in the Warning Output screen (see page 38 ) • Fault: The Fault LED will activate and the analogue output will be set according to the configuration in the Fault Output screen (see page 38 ) Crowcon default settings: Calibration Due default setting: Warning Bump Test Due default setting: None Calibration Due and Bump Test Due messages/warnings can only be reset by performing a successful calibration or bump test. A successful calibration resets both calibration and bump test due dates. A successful bump test updates the bump test due date only (not the calibration due date). A failed calibration immediately sets the XgardIQ to calibration due state. A failed bump test at any time (ie whether bump test is due or not) sets a bump due status immediately.

58. Operation 52 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 3.8 Routine maintenance Site practices and conditions will dictate the frequency of routine maintenance, bump test and calibration procedures. Crowcon recommends that most sensors and transmitters are inspected and functionally tested every six months as a minimum. Bump test and calibration: The specific recommended calibration period for sensors will be shown on the datasheet supplied with the sensor module. XgardIQ incorporates a Bump test feature which enables sensor performance to be verified quickly either on a routine basis (eg every 3 months) or after a sensor has experienced an event that may have caused damage or sensitivity loss. The XgardIQ transmitter will warn when routine calibration and bump test (if configured: see next section) is due. The time spent by maintenance personnel in very hazardous areas can be minimized by removing the sensor module to a safe area for calibration (either via another XgardIQ transmitter or using a PC running Detectors Pro software). Once calibrated, the sensor module can be re-installed into the transmitter. Sensor replacement: The typical life of each sensor type is shown on the datasheet supplied with the sensor module. Electrochemical and pellistor-type sensors should be replaced when they fail a calibration or bump test. See Section 3.10 on page 54 for instructions on changing sensor modules. O-rings and seals: The O-ring fitted to the XgardIQ enclosure lid should be inspected periodically and replaced damage is evident. The quad-ring within the sensor module aperture is coated to ensure the sensor module slides into the transmitter easily. The quad-ring should be replaced periodically to ensure that water and dust ingress protection is maintained and so that sensor modules can be inserted/removed easily. Dust filter accessory: This accessory is only recommended for use in extreme locations where sensor contamination is very likely. Where fitted, duct filter must be checked regularly (eg every 3 months) by performing a bump test. Time and date: Verify the time and date are correct on the XgardIQ display.

21. Installation 15 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 2.5 Cabling requirements Cabling to XgardIQ must be in accordance with the recognised standards of the appropriate authority in the country concerned and meet the electrical requirements of the XgardIQ . Crowcon recommends the use of steel wire armoured (SWA) cable and suitable explosion proof glands must be used. Alternative cabling techniques, such as steel conduit, may be acceptable provided appropriate standards are met. To maintain the ingress protection of the transmitter, only cable glands rated IP66 or higher must be used. The threads of the cable gland must be sealed using PTFE tape. If the stopping plugs fitted to spare enclosure entries are removed and re-fitted; a new layer of PTFE tape must be applied to the threads. Crowcon strongly recommends that screened cables are used to prevent the risk of signal interference. Refer to the following section for earthing requirements. The maximum recommended cable length is 1 km when using a cable with 2.5mm 2 conductors (see Table 1). The calculations shown assume the highest power sensor type is used and a relay module is fitted. Actual maximum cable length will increase for XgardIQ transmitters fitted with lower power (eg electrochemical) sensors and where relays are not fitted. XgardIQ requires a dc supply of 14-32Vdc. Ensure there is a minimum of 14V at the XgardIQ from the control panel, taking into account the voltage drop due to cable resistance at a peak current of 0.25A. The following calculations assume a guaranteed minimum supply of 20Vdc from the control system. Table 1 below shows the maximum cable distances for typical cable parameters. C.S.A. Resistance Max. Distance >20 Vdc* mm 2 (Ohms per km) (km) 1.0 18.4 0.65 1.5 13.0 0.9 2.5 11.5 1.0 * Minimum supply voltage from control panel Table 1: Maximum cable distances for typical cables Note: Crowcon strongly recommends the use of screened cables to prevent potential signal interference. 2.5.1 Earthing requirements Earth terminals are provided on the outside of the XgardIQ enclosure adjacent to the top-right cable entry, and internally near the right-hand field cable connector. For electrical safety it is essential that the XgardIQ enclosure is bonded to earth, usually using the external earth lug, if an earth cable is provided in the field cable the internal earth point can be used.

8. Introduction 2 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 1.2 Safety information XgardIQ gas detectors must be installed, operated and maintained in strict accordance with these instructions, warnings, label information, and within the limitations stated. • The circular lid on XgardIQ must be kept tightly closed during operation. Do not attempt to remove the lid until power to the transmitter is isolated - otherwise ignition of a flammable atmosphere can occur. Before removing the lid for installation or maintenance, check that the surrounding atmosphere is free of flammable gases or vapours. Do not open until several minutes after the power has been removed. The sensor module is Intrinsically Safe and therefore may be safely removed in the hazardous area whilst power is applied to the transmitter. • Maintenance and calibration operations must only be performed by qualified service personnel. • Only genuine Crowcon replacement parts must be used; substitute components may invalidate the certification and warranty of the XgardIQ . • XgardIQ must be protected from extreme vibration, and direct sunlight in hot environments as this may cause the temperature of the XgardIQ to rise above its specified limits and cause premature failure. • The enclosure must be electrically bonded to earth using the lug provided adjacent to the top-left cable entry. • The painted aluminium version of the product constitutes potential electrostatic hazard and the equipment must only be cleaned using a damp cloth • The detector must be installed in an area where there is a low risk of mechanical damage. • The gland entry stopping (blanking) plugs supplied fitted to XgardIQ are certified for use in a hazardous area only when used with this product. • Unused cable entries must be sealed using the originally supplied stopping plugs or an ATEX / IECEx Ex d flameproof equipment appropriately certified alternative. • Cable entry devices and threaded adapters fitted shall be suitable for the equipment, the cable and the conditions of use, and shall be IECEx / ATEX flameproof certified as Ex equipment, and not an Ex component. • Local procedures and regulations must be followed. • Warning: transmitters fitted with relay modules may be used for switching mains voltages. Extreme care must be taken when removing the lid and making connections. Mains power connected to the relay contacts (and associated devices) must be isolated before attempting maintenance work on XgardIQ . 1.3 Storage instructions Some types of sensor available with XgardIQ have limited life when left un-powered and/or may be adversely affected by temperature extremes or environmental contamination. Please refer to the information sheet supplied with the sensor module for specific instructions.

57. Operation 51 Detecting Gas Saving L ive s English 3.7.3 Sensor Calibration The calibration gas must only be applied to the sensor using the XgardIQ calibration cap (see Section 2.4.1 on page 13 ). For most sensors a flow-rate of 0.5 litres per minute is appropriate although this may vary for some sensor types. Refer to the datasheet supplied with the sensor module for specific instructions. Calibration can be performed with a suitable gas concentration from 10% of the scaled sensor range to 100% of the maximum sensor range. Example 1: the standard CO sensor has a maximum range of 0-1000ppm. Even if the sensor has been re-scaled to 0-250ppm or 0-500ppm (or any other value), calibration gas up to 1000ppm concentration can be used to calibrate the sensor without re-scaling the sensor. The minimum calibration gas concentration that can be used is 10% of the scaled range. Example 2: a CO sensor is set to its maximum range: 0-1000ppm. The minimum concentration calibration gas that could be used is 100ppm. Example 3: a CO sensor has been re-scaled to 0-100ppm. The minimum concentration calibration gas that could be used is 10ppm. The analogue output signal will be inhibited to the level configured in the ‘Inhibit Output’ menu (ie 1mA, 2mA, 3mA or ‘Clean Air’) whilst using the Calibration function. Note: if a dust filter is to be fitted to the sensor module, it is essential that calibration is performed with the dust filter in-place. Refer to Section 3.5.2.2 on page 27 for instructions on using the Calibration function. 3.7.4 Other Commissioning Checks If the XgardIQ transmitter is connected to a control system, check: • The type of cables and glands used are appropriate and correctly fitted/terminated. • The earth and cable screen connections are correctly made. • The labels shown in section 1.5 and 1.6 are present and clearly legible. • The sensor has been installed in an appropriate location for the gas to be detected. • Suitable accessories have been installed. • The system input dedicated to the XgardIQ is not in fault and reads zero gas when the XgardIQ sensor reads zero (ie 4mA signal check). • The system input dedicated to the XgardIQ reads full-scale gas when the XgardIQ output signal is set to 20mA. • The system input dedicated to the XgardIQ goes into fault mode when a fault condition is present on the XgardIQ transmitter (eg by removing the sensor module). • Any devices connected directly to the XgardIQ relay module (if fitted) operate correctly in an Alarm or Fault condition. • The detector configuration is checked and signed-off by the user.

Note: Faults are latched for 30 seconds and will automatically be cleared when the cause is removed. Note: Fault states take priority over alarms: the analogue output signal will be set at Fault level (normally 1mA) even though alarms may have been registered. Note: Analogue output feedback faults: If an error is detected with the analogue output signal (either due to a wiring fault or incorrect manual setting of the Sink/ Source function) the transmitter will go into fault mode and analogue 4-20mA signal will latch at the minimum signal level (~1mA). The analogue output signal can be re-activated by: • Manually selecting the correct Mode: Sink or Source (see page 38 ) • Using the Ramp function (see page 32 ) • Reset the processor using the Watchdog function (see page 35 ) • Power-cycling the detector Full Description Display Code Pop-up Display Message Explanation Remedy/action (options shown in priority order for some faults) Sensor hardware fault 0 Sensor hardware fault Sensor module hardware failure – ROM, RAM, Vcc, CPU EEPROM or other CPU fault, supply voltage fault or hardware/ firmware mismatch.
