Display shows “LAST” [1A] followed by screen showing current program number [1B], followed by screen showing the run time, “R”, and the percentage of time the last sampling run varied more than ± 5% from set flow rate. The three screens repeat.

2) Press the ▲ or ▼ buttons while “LAST” is displayed [2A] to change the program number upward or downward [see 2B]. Continue to press the ▲ or ▼ buttons to further increase or decrease the program number (Px, where x can be “C” or a number from 1 to 6).

3) Press the PROG button to view the current Delay Time (represented by “D” icon in the display window [3A]). The clock icon is flashing. Press the ▲ or ▼ buttons [3B] to either increase or decrease the Delay Time [3C]. The Delay Time is the number of minutes after the pump is turned on before it actually starts sampling.

4) Press the PROG button again to view the current Run Time (represented by “R” icon in the display window [4A]). The clock icon is flashing. Press the ▲ or ▼ buttons [4B] to either increase or decrease the Run Time [4C]. The Run Time is the number of minutes the pump will sample before stopping and going into Run Delay mode.

5) Press the PROG button again to view the current Run Delay Time (represented by “D” & “R” icons in the display window [5A]). The clock icon is flashing. Press the ▲ or ▼ buttons [5B] to either increase or decrease the Run Delay Time [5C]. The Delayed Run Time is the number of minutes between successive Run Time intervals.

6) Press the PROG button again to view the current Cycle Count (represented by “C” icon in the display window [6A]). The clock icon is flashing. Press the ▲ or ▼ buttons [6B] to either increase or decrease the Cycle Count [6C]. The Cycle Count variable defines the number of times that the Run Time intervals are executed.

7) Press the PROG button again to accept the program changes and return to the flashing “Px” display [7A]. This completes the programming phase for this selected program number

NOTE

If the Run Time and Cycle Count variables are large enough to result in a total run time of more than 9,999 minutes, the unit will remain in the Cycle Count programming mode with a flashing “E” in the small digit area, until a value for Cycle Count is acceptable when the PROG button is pressed.

Once the pump is programmed it will default to the program number used for the last sampling run when the display is turned on [1].

To switch to another program number without making any changes, follow Steps 2A and 2B. Continue pressing the PROG button only in Steps 3 through 6 until the display shows the flashing program number [7A].

SECTION FOUR

MAINTENANCE

4.1 Battery Maintenance

The GilAir-3 and GilAir-5 air sampling pumps use rechargeable Nickel-Cadmium or Nickel-Metal-Hydride batteries that must be fully charged and properly maintained to achieve maximum pump run time. The battery pack may be charged separately or while installed on the pump.

WARNING

Do not clean, open case, charge or replace battery while in an explosive atmosphere.

Battery packs are charged through a built-in jack, on the side of the battery pack. Note: The charging plug is polarized to prevent improper insertion.

CAUTION

Do not short the battery terminals or the charging jack. Shorting will result in irreversible damage to the battery pack.

• Memory Effect

Nickel-Cadmium batteries will develop reduced capacity when they are not fully discharged and then fully recharged after sampling. Memory effect takes time to develop and can usually be eliminated by performing two complete discharge/recharge cycles on the pump.

• Leakage Current

Nickel-Cadmium and Nickel-Metal-Hydride batteries always have a small internal leakage current. If the battery pack has been removed from the charger for more than two days without use, it will require additional charging to restore it to full capacity. This process can be repeated two or three times without cause.

NOTE

Charger must be connected at AC mains supply Before being connected to battery or pump for charging.

• Chargers

NOTE

See Battery/Charger compatibility matrix in Appendix A: Parts List.

Single Station Charger

A constant-rate charger that automatically shuts down when charging is complete.

A dual rate charger that can be switched from constant-rate charge to trickle charge.

Universal Multi-Station Charger

A dual rate charger offering five-station timed constant-rate charging that automatically defaults to trickle charge.

BMS Multi-Station Charger

WARNING

DO NOT use the BMS-200 charger to charge Ni-MH battery version pumps. Use ONLY the BMS II-100CE model with Ni-MH battery models to prevent permanent damage to the batteries.

A five-station charger offering timed charging that defaults to a trickle charge in either a constant-rate charging mode or two diagnostic modes.

NOTE

The BMS Multi-Station Charger has a single and double discharge mode (Single Evaluation and Double Evaluation) designed to enhance the performance of NickelCadmium batteries. Excessive use of these discharge/ charge features will needlessly shorten battery life. We recommend use of the Double Evaluation mode for maintenance only (maximum once monthly) for use with Nickel-Cadmium batteries. These modes offer no advantage with Nickel-Metal-Hydride batteries.

4.2 Filter Maintenance

The inlet filter should be changed after six months of regular use or whenever the outer portion of the filter becomes discolored. The filter center retains its original color as a reference.

1) Unscrew and remove the four filter housing screws [1].

2) Remove the filter housing [2].

3) Remove the large filter o-ring [4].

4) Remove the filter [3]. Make certain the small center o-ring [5] is properly seated inside the pump.

5) Place the new filter inside the filter housing [2], followed by the filter o-ring [4].

6) Install the filter housing [2] in the pump and secure with the four housing screws [1].
