Preamble

PREAMBLE 1. DEFINITION OF THE ATEQ D520 The ATEQ D520 is a flow meter which measures a drop in pressure with a differential sensor (transducer) which is placed at the extremities of a calibrated flow tube. Absolute pressure sensor Caloibrated flow tube Regulator

Dp Atmosphere

Air pressure supply

Flow

Test part

Differential pressure sensor

When fluid (gas) moves through a calibrated flow tube (laminar flow), a drop in pressure occurs, the value of which is proportional to flow.

∆P = 8µLQ/ΠR4 µ : viscosity of the fluid L : length of the calibrated flow tube R : radius of the calibrated flow tube Q : flow ∆P : drop in pressure in the calibrated flow tube

3. THE DIFFERENT MEASUREMENT PRINCIPLES

There exists two measurement principles, they are: direct measurement and the indirect measurement (also known as with recovery or under bell). The instrument can work in depressurisation (optional) both in direct and indirect measurement. 3.1. DIRECT MEASUREMENT Absolute pressure sensor Calibrated flow tube Regulator

Dp Atmosphere

Air pressure supply

Flow

Test part

Differential pressure sensor

As shown in the diagram above the test pressure is applied directly to the test part input after having flowed through the calibrated flow tube. Once the test part is filled, the ATEQ D520 measures the drop in pressure at the extremities of the calibrated flow tube with a differential sensor.

UM-22100D-U

User manual ATEQ D520 Page 7/112

Preamble

3.2. INDIRECT MEASUREMENT (OR RECOVERY MODE) Absolute pressure sensor Calibrated flow tube Regulator

Dp Atmosphere

Air supply Test part

Flow

Differential pressure sensor

The calibrated flow tube is placed following the output of the test part. The output of the calibrated flow tube is to the atmosphere. Depending on the part type, it may be possible to use a bell (ex: shower head where it is impossible to recover the flow other than through the use of a bell). This method can only be used if the recovery of the flow is easy. The indirect measurement allows a considerable gain in time as the flow which arrives in the calibrated flow tube is already stabilised.

UM-22100D-U

User manual ATEQ D520 Page 8/112

Preamble

4. PRESSURE, TEMPERATURE & VISCOSITY EFFECT ON THE MEASUREMENT

4.1. PRESSURE VARIATION

As shown in the direct measurement diagram, the test part is in series in the test circuit, the test pressure set by the regulator is not entirely restored at the input of the test part due to pressure losses caused by the calibrated flow tube. Additionally the output pressure of the regulator changes depending on the flows. The results are always expressed as a function of the test pressure. That is why a silicium sensor constantly monitors the real test pressure applied to the part. Depending on the pressure value read the ATEQ D520 applies a correction factor which allows a constant compensation for the pressure drops in the test circuit. Note that the further the test part is from the cell, the higher the pressure drop is. This should be avoided (possibility of pressure measurement on the part). 4.2. VISCOSITY AND TEMPERATURE VARIATION

The viscosity of a gas is directly linked to its temperature. The higher the temperature is, the greater the viscosity. The law of “Poiseuille” shows that when the viscosity increases, the pressure drop increases. These two parameters, temperature and viscosity have an influence on the accuracy of the measurement. A correction is applied depending on the real temperature of the gas flowing through the system. Variations in the temperature of the parts during the test and in relation to each other should be avoided by the "High precision" mode (optional): An automatic acquisition cycle on a known master value is realised before each test cycle, it allows calculating the test part value with the current atmospherics conditions.

Preamble

5. CALIBRATION

There exist 2 different types of calibration. 5.1. FACTORY CALIBRATION

The factory calibration is set in the instrument. Display 1000

Master leak 1000 l/h

Calibrated flow tube 1000 l/h

Note: this calibration does not take into account tube lengths, seal jig restrictions, ... 5.2. MANUAL CALIBRATION

It is possible that the unit the instrument is delivered in or some external elements (seals, pipes...) result in the factory calibration being unsatisfactory. In this case a manual calibration taking into account the previously stated elements, can be carried out by the operator. For this calibration, the calibrated master leak should be used in the same conditions as the parts to be measured (diameter, length of the pipes).

Chapter 1 – Installation of the instrument 2.2.2. 6) Pneumatic air supply

The air is supplied through the filter placed on the back panel of the instrument.

The air supply must absolutely be clean and dry. The presence of dusts, oil or impurities, causes a risk of improper operation of the instrument despite the filter supplied. When the instrument operates in vacuum the entry of debris into the instrument must be avoided. For this purpose it is highly recommended that an appropriate leak proof filter is fitted between the test part and the instrument. This filter can be supplied by ATEQ. The presence of impurities, oil or humidity in the air may cause a deterioration for which the guarantee will not be valid. According to the ISO 8573-1 norm concerning the quality levels of compressed air for measurement instruments in industrial environments: ATEQ recommends: • Grain size and concentration

CLASS 1

(0,1 µm and 0,1 mg/m3)

• Dew point under pressure

CLASS 2

(- 40° of dew)

• Maximal concentration in oil

CLASS 1

(0,01 mg/m3)

ATEQ recommends the installation: • Of an air drier allowing the obtaining of a dry air with a dew point at less than 40°, • Of a 25 microns and 1/100 of a micron double filter. Optimisation of the operation: The air supply pressure must be between 400 kPa and 800 kPa (4 and 8 bar) to ensure a perfect operation of the pneumatic distributors. In the event of the use of a mechanical regulator, it is necessary to have an air pressure supply which is at least 100 kPa (1 bar) over the test pressure with a minimum of 400 kPa (4 bar). In the event of the use of an electronic regulator, the input pressure must be at least 10 % over the full scale value of the electronic regulator + 100 kPa (+ 1 bar).

2.2. SELECTION OF THE TEST TYPE Two test types are available. The PARAMETERS menu gives access to two possible test types: Indirect or direct flow test (FLOW. CYCLE) and an operator test (OPERATOR) non functional; refer to the following paragraph for explanations. Place the cursor in front of the required test type and confirm with the ENTER key.

PARAM/TYPE DIRECT FLOW OPERATOR

2.2.1. Flow test When a fluid (gas) passes through a calibrated flow tube (laminar flow), a pressure drop takes place, the value of which is proportional to the flow. 2.2.2. Test with reference This kind of test is an option. It's named "Rich" or "High Precision". It's allows shifting the pneumatic circuit to a master (reference program), this is to make a learning before measuring on the test part (flow program). The master characteristics are to be informed in the (single) "reference" program. See the "reference" function in the chapter 4. Procedure for test with reference: ¾ Program the reference cycle. ¾ Program the flow test cycles with the same parameters as the reference one. ¾ Activate the reference function in the flow cycle. 2.2.3. Operator mode test This test type allows the operator to carry out actions (or checks) on the part undergoing a test then to confirm them with the "START" good, or on the "RESET"

Chapter 3 – Start-up and adjustments 2.3.1. Coupling time The coupling (also known as wait) times A and B are cycle start parameters. When there is no automatic connector, the coupling time A is a part of the cycle. In the event of an instrument with automatic connector the coupling time A allows the activation of a first connector as soon as the cycle starts and to delay the pressurisation of the test part. The coupling time B allows the activation of a second automatic connector. These coupling times ensure a better stabilisation of the seals placed on the test part. )Adjust this parameter according to the method described in § 2.3. 2.3.2. Fill time This is the time taken to pressurise and initialise the flow in the test part. ) Adjust this parameter according to the method described in § 2.3. 2.3.3. Stabilisation time This time allows the stabilisation of the flow in the part. If the stabilisation time is too short, parasite flow variations can cause inaccurate readings. It is therefore recommended to start with a long stabilisation time and to progressively reduce it until a stable reading of flow can be made. ) Adjust this parameter according to the method described in § 2.3. 2.3.4. Test time The test time can be a set value or infinite. During all this time the instrument indicates if the flow in the part measured is between the minimum and maximum reject values. When the test time is infinite, the fill pressure monitoring is inoperative. It is therefore necessary to be careful not to apply an excessive pressure to the part being tested. ) Adjust this parameter according to the method described in § 2.3. 2.3.5. Pressure unit The different units are: bar, mbar, PSI, Pa, kPa, MPa. ) Adjust this parameter according to the method described in § 2.3.

UM-22100D-U

User manual ATEQ D520 Page 35/112

Chapter 3 – Start-up and adjustments 2.3.6. Max fill This function allows the setting of a maximum fill pressure which sets off an alarm if it is exceeded. ) Adjust this parameter according to the method described in § 2.3. 2.3.7. Min fill This function allows the setting of a minimum fill pressure threshold which sets of an alarm if the pressure is not reached. This function is not active when an infinite test time is set. ) Adjust this parameter according to the method described in § 2.3. 2.3.8. Reject unit The reject units available depending on the system chosen by the operator are: SI System: ml/h, l/h, ml/s, ml/min. USA System: in3/h, ft3/h, in3/min, in3/h, ft3/h, in3/min. Personalised system: no units, as chosen by the operator (CAL) only a unit name is required, then the input of the maximum authorised drift. A learning cycle is then necessary, it is carried out through the "CAL learning" special cycle. ) Adjust this parameter according to the method described in § 2.3. 2.3.9. Maximum reject This parameter allows the definition of the upper limit of the authorised flow range in the test part, above this limit the part is considered as bad. ) Adjust this parameter according to the method described in § 2.3. 2.3.10. Minimum reject This parameter allows the definition of the lower limit of the authorised flow range in the test part, under this limit the part is considered as bad. ) Adjust this parameter according to the method described in § 2.3.

Range (second capillary option) The second capillary is an option on the D520 instrument, it allows having two flow measurement ranges so that to have best adapt of the measurement extend of the capillary in function of the part to be controlled. When this option exists in the instrument, the "Range" parameter appears in the parameters menu, so you have to choose the capillary (the range), then the best measurement range adapted to the part to be controlled. The choice of the range is function of the capillaries installed in the instrument: the available ranges are: 5 l/h, 30 l/h, 150 l/h, 500 l/h, 1500 l/h, 4000 l/h and 10000 l/h. ) Adjust this parameter according to the method described in § 2.3. 2.3.12.

Chapter 4 – Functions of the instrument 2.1.2. Adjustment of the additional functions 9 Place the key in the ACCESS

position.

9 Create a new program (refer to chapter 3 paragraph 2 "Creation of a test program"). 9 In the parameters list of this new program, validate the FUNCTIONS parameter (refer to chapter 3 paragraph 2.3 "Adjustment of the parameters"). Only the functions activated according to the method described in the previous paragraph will appear in the FUNCTIONS parameter. 2.1.3. List of additional functions 2.1.3. 1) Name This function allows the personalisation of a program, for example to identify it by the name of the test part. )Select the option and adjust settings if necessary. 2.1.3. 2) Cycling This function enables several tests to be carried out by the instrument one after the other. The instrument offers 8 chaining criteria. When this function is activated it is possible to carry out a special “Step by Step” cycle as part of the initialisation, which chains cycles without conditions. Associated parameters to adjust: INTER-CYCLE (wait time between two cycles). Chaining conditions: ALL (under all conditions), part good, rise error, drop error, warning, pressure error. )Select the option and adjust settings if necessary. 2.1.3. 3) Reference The validation of the "Reference" function in a flow cycle program is associating to this cycle the "Reference" cycle. During this "Reference" cycle, the measurement circuit is shifting to a circuit equipped by a master jet or a master part with known characteristics. This proceeding is correcting the possible atmospherics conditions variations. The activation of the "Reference" phase can be done by following two ways: ¾ manually, the instrument shift to the reference circuit with the operator request, or automatic. Selection by the front panel or the inputs/outputs of the concerned program. ¾ automatically the instrument shift to the reference circuit before each test cycle.

UM-22100D-U

User manual ATEQ D520 Page 54/112

Chapter 4 – Functions of the instrument It must also configure the reference program with the master parameters. ¾ Calibration pressure. ¾ Master flow. ¾ Atmospheric pressure of the calibration. ¾ Calibration temperature. ¾ Drift. The drift is calculated between the first and the last master jet measurement (reference cycle realisation). If it's higher than the programmed level, a error message appears. Only a manual acquit can be possible ("Drift acquit" special cycle). ) Select the option and adjust settings if necessary. 2.1.3. 4) Automatic mode This function launches the test cycle automatically, it therefore avoids the need for a pressing of the cycle start by the operator. The cycling of this test is on is own part. The automatic function allows launching a test cycle as the part to be tested to the measurement circuit connection. The start cycle is made when the test pressure is between the minimum and the maximum levels. In the case of use of the personalised measurements units (CAL) it's imperative to make a learning cycle before starting a test cycle. The learning error can generate an instrument blocking mode. ) Select the option and adjust settings if necessary. 2.1.3. 5) Units This function allows the operator to choose the units system required: SI, international metric unit system, USA, Anglo-Saxon international units system (inches, feet) and CAL, the operator personalised unit system (this system requires the carrying out of a learning cycle. ) Select the option and adjust settings if necessary. 2.1.3. 6) Filtering This function ensures the slowing or the acceleration the sampling speed, by carrying out an average over the measurement time set, making the reading of the measurement more user friendly. ) Select the option and adjust settings if necessary. 2.1.3. 7) Standard conditions The "Standard conditions" function allows the returning of the results measured by the instrument to defined atmospheric conditions. The measurements depend on the ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure. When the function is activated, the instrument recalculates the flow results according to the atmospheric conditions inputted. Therefore the results of the measurements will not take into account the ambient variations. To confirm this function, an asterisk is displayed after "FLOW". ) Select the option and adjust settings if necessary.

UM-22100D-U

User manual ATEQ D520 Page 55/112

Chapter 4 – Functions of the instrument 2.1.3. 8) Pressure correction The "pressure correction" function allows the conversion of the results by the instrument to a defined pressure instruction. When the function is activated, the instrument recalculates the flow results depending on the instruction pressure. The measurement results will therefore no take into account pressure variations. ) Select the option and adjust settings if necessary. 2.1.3. 9) Pressure reset The reset cycle in an ATEQ D520 instrument is carried out for each test cycle. This function allows the positioning of the auto zero (reset) in the test cycle. The positioning can be done BEFORE (just after the cycle start order and before the test cycle and before the test cycle), AFTER (just after the test time) or WITHOUT (no pressure auto zero). ) Select the option and adjust settings if necessary. 2.1.3. 10) Offset This function allows the subtraction of the value set in the parameters from the value actually measured by the instrument. Example: if the measurement of the flow is of 14 litres a minute and the value of the offset set is of 5, then the instrument will display a flow value of 9 litres per minute (9 = 14 – 5). ) Select the option and adjust settings if necessary. 2.1.3. 11) ATR (Transient attenuation) An ATR cycle enables time to be gained over a traditional cycle by enabling the stabilisation time to be reduced and absorbing the transient pressure. The transient pressure is an unexpected drop in pressure caused by a stabilisation time which is too short. The ATR may require a “learning cycle” to enable the transient pressure to be measured. a) ATR1 The value of the transient is unknown. A special learning cycle must be carried out. Associated parameters to be set: Initial (Initial value of the transient), Transit (actual and non modifiable value of the transient), Tolerance (Drift tolerance on acquisition of the transient, % of the reject level). ) Select the option and adjust settings if necessary.

UM-22100D-U

User manual ATEQ D520 Page 56/112

Chapter 4 – Functions of the instrument b) ATR2 Corresponds to ATR 1 but the potential leakage of the part is taken into account when the value of the transient is determined during the special cycle. Associated parameters to be set: Initial (Initial value of the transient), Transit (actual and non modifiable value of the transient), Tolerance (Drift tolerance on acquisition of the transient, % of the reject level). ) Select the option and adjust settings if necessary. For ATR learning cycles, see paragraph 3.7. "ATR learning". When a parameter is modified but no learning cycle has been carried out, an "ATR" fault occurs. The "alarm" and "end of cycle" outputs are activated. Learning may be carried out on a value greater than the reject level and the "Pass" and "end of cycle" outputs are then activated. However, the "ATR" fault appears if the difference between the transient and the initial value is greater than the reject level. 2.1.3. 12) Peak hold FLOW The peak hold mode allows the measurement a part MAXIMUM VALUE dynamically. The instrument MEASURED measures the flow which can evolve at a given time during the test. The instrument memorises the most important flow, then displays it at the end of the test. 0

TIME

Note: The peak hold mode excludes any use of the ATR mode. 2.1.3. 13) Recovery thresholds This option offers the possibility of having two reject levels: the level of intolerance (the part is bad and irrecoverable) and the level of recoverable reject (the part is bad but can be reworked to be accepted). This option is particularly used in casting for parts which may be impregnated. REFERENCE REJECT LEVEL

Chapter 4 – Functions of the instrument Associated parameters to be adjusted: Max RECOV, Min RECOV. If in multi measurement instrument configuration the parts are recoverable, the good part (POK) and bad part (PNOK) outputs are activated simultaneously. ) Select the option and adjust settings if necessary. 2.1.3. 14) P1 – P2 Function CYCLE/Pr:001

This function allows the taking away of the pressure PRESS : 18.9 mbar measurement of piezo sensor 2 (if installed depending FLOW : 97.7 ml/s on options) from that of piezo sensor 1. P1-P2 : 18.9 mbar ) Select the option and adjust settings if necessary. 2.1.3. 15) P1 – P2 Correction This function can on the basis of the P1 – P2 result (refer to the paragraph above) allow a correction to be made on the flow result of P1 - P2. Function similar to the function "pressure correction" paragraph 2.1.3.8. ) Select the option and adjust settings if necessary. 2.1.3. 16) Fill mode This function gives the choice of three types of fill operation. a) Standard With a mechanical regulator Adjust the value of the fill pressure manually by using the regulator handle during a "regulator adjust" special cycle. With an electronic regulator The fill pressure is adjusted automatically on the value chosen when the test program is created. b) Instruction The operator adjusts an instruction value for the fill pressure and opens the regulator. When the instruction pressure is reached the fill is stopped. Associated parameters to be adjusted: I. FILL (Instruction fill). c) Ballistic This type of fill allows a fluctuation of the air pressure (filling of highly deformable parts) and enables an exceeding of the maximum fill threshold without stopping the cycle and delivering an error message. Never the less, to move into stabilisation, the test pressure must be between the thresholds at the end of the fill.

Chapter 4 – Functions of the instrument 2.1.3. 17) Automatic connector The automatic connector is a pneumatic command allowing the control of an external logic (pneumatic seal jig). This command is carried out as soon as the cycle is started and stopped at the end of the cycle (refer to paragraph 2.1.3.22) "Cycle end"). If several programs are cycled the automatic connectors are activated with the set times in the first program and are deactivated with the time set for the last program in the cycle. They remain active during all the cycles between the first and the last program in the chain. The various coupling times are respected by the intermediate programs. Associated parameters to be adjusted: COUPLING A, COUPLING B. ) Select the option and adjust settings if necessary. 2.1.3. 18) Valve codes The instrument has 8 electrical programmable outputs (24V DC / 100 mA maximum) of which 4 may be reserved through the presence of the stamping (valve code 1 internal and external) and external dump (valve code 2 internal and external). These outputs (one or more) may be assigned to program numbers. They are generally used to select the valves in a sequence of cycles. The desired outputs can be activated for each program (see Chapter 1 paragraph 2.2.1.1.). Associated parameters to be set: External 1, External 2, External 3, External 4, External 5, External 6, Internal 1, Internal 2. ) Select the option and adjust settings if necessary.

2.2. READY STATUS The function "Ready status" allows to determinate the blow mode when the instrument is in the rest (out of test cycle). It's exist three blow modes: ¾ Blow on the reference circuit (Ref.), ¾ Blow on the test circuit (Test), ¾ No blow (Stop). In the case of installation of electronic regulator in option, the right think to do is to inform the blow pressure instruction. )Select the option and adjust settings if necessary. 2.3. REFERENCE CAL The "Reference CAL" function, when is validate by "Yes" allows to make appears a "CAL ref" calibration special cycle, thus allowing to calibrate the reference circuit. This is a "super" calibration. To calibrate the reference circuit, it must connect the "super master" on the test circuit and then select the "CAL ref" special cycle", capture the "super master" characteristics and launch the special cycle. Thus when the special cycle is finished, the new characteristics are captured in the standard master jet parameters of the reference circuit. )Select the option and adjust settings if necessary. 2.4. BAR GRAPH This function is only valid if an RC5 remote control or L.E.D. 14 characters display is fitted. It allows the graphical representation of the flow value in relation to the reject thresholds set. On the lower scale, the minimum and maximum thresholds in relation to the full scale are displayed. On the upper scale the flow value is displayed. The parameters which can be set (30 % 50 % et 70 %) place the maximum threshold to 30 %, 50 % or 70 % of the bar graph. The example below represents a bar graph with a maximum threshold at 50 %:

2.5. REGULATOR LEARNING 2.5.1. Standard regulator learning This function is only valid in the event of the installation of a regulator in the instrument. It enables the determining of the time between two electronic regulator learning cycles. When it is validated by "yes", the frequency (time or minutes) or the number of cycles between two learning cycles is to be determined. When the frequency or number of cycle values are at zero, the learning request becomes manual, at the operator request by way of special cycle, or by the programmable input 7. The learning cycle allows the calculation of the three characteristic points of the regulator (points at 20 %, 50 % and 80 % of the maximum pressure which can be supplied by the regulator, value depending on the input air supply pressure). ) Select the option and adjust settings if necessary. 2.5.2. Without regulator learning When the "Regulator learning" is not validated ("No") there won't regulator characteristics calculation (points at 20 %, 50 % and 80 %). In this case two options arise in the "fill type" function: the fill type in "Percent" or "Control". These two types appear in the case of test in "flow" mode. 2.5.2. 1) "Percent" type In this mode, it must inform the pressure instruction in percent of the full scale of the regulator. Example: full scale of the regulator 4 bars, test pressure 1.5 bars then the percentage will be 37.5 %. 2.5.2. 2) "Control" type In this mode, it must inform the hoped pressure instruction (real value in the configured measurement unity). The electronic regulator is correcting two times the pressure rise ramp during the fill. This function allows making a correction of the pressure instruction according the flow. When this correction is too important, an alarm "< Min. Pressure" is activated. During the stabilisation and test phases, no instruction correction is realised. 2.6. HOUR This function includes a clock (hour, minutes) and an internal calendar (day, month and year). ) Select the option and adjust settings if necessary.

For that it is necessary to carry out a learning cycle to make the calibration value correspond to the value of a master leak connected to the instrument. It is necessary to carry out the learning cycle, either by the special cycles menu or through input 7 of the J3 connector if programmed for this function, or through a programmed function key on the RC5 console if it is installed. The first CAL learning cycle must absolutely be carried out through the special cycles menu, so that a CAL instruction other than 0 can be selected. On the outputs we obtain: ¾ "part good" and "cycle end" if the instruction is inferior or equal to the reject threshold, ¾ "part bad" and "cycle end" if the instruction is superior to the reject threshold. Confirm with "YES" the "UNIT" function in the "CONFIGURATION/ EXTENDED MENUS" menu.

2.2. NEEDLE VALVE AND LEAK FLOW CALIBRATOR 2.2.1. Needle valve Needle valves are used to calibrate the leakage limits. These valves have an adjustable leak and depending on the model allow adjustments of between a few cm3/h to several l/min. These valves can be easily disturbed and therefore require the frequent use of some means of checking the setting (eg: ATEQ Leak/ Flow calibrator). Note: it is strongly recommended that you do NOT leave a needle valve permanently connected on a leak detection machine with automatic calibration every "n cycles". 2.2.2. CDF (Leak/Flow Calibrator)

2.3. AUTOMATIC CONNECTORS WITH EXPANDABLE JOINTS ATEQ automatic connectors are used so that accurate and reliable assemblies can be built to check air tightness. They simplify the work of the operator as they are selflocking thanks to the use of a pneumatic valve supplied from the mains compressed air supply. Several connectors may be controlled by the same remote, powered by an ATEQ or another logic. They adapt easily to a large number of fittings and apertures of varied dimensions. Their use ensures that non-machined walls can be guaranteed airtight. There are four basic versions of ATEQ automatic connectors: 9 SA for external connections, 9 SI for internal connections, 9 SAG and SIG for threaded and tapped connections. They are either in anodised aluminium or stainless steel as standard. Different types of joints are available depending on the elasticity required. 2.3.1. Operation The connector is positioned manually or automatically using a jack or cylinder. Compressed air is allowed through the control aperture via a three part valve. The pressure pushes the cylinder which squashes the connector. The air tightness is therefore perfect and there will be no leakage in the connector seals. 2.3.2. Standard dimensions SAG and SIG have been designed for threaded and tapped caps. For the time being, they are available in gas norm. Sizes, which are: 1/2", 3/4", 1", 11/4", 11/2", 2", BSP. The SA and SI are designed for smooth nozzles, with dimensions from 3 to 80 mm for the external diameters (SA), and from 10 to 75 mm for the internal diameters (SI). 2.4. FILTRATION KIT For an increased reliability of the instruments, it is necessary to use clean and dry air. The filtration kit is connected to the air input on the rear panel of the instrument. It is composed of a dust removal cartridge (5µm) and another cartridge (0,01 µm) to reduce the residual oil pollution to 0,01 ppm.

Presentation This option allows the placing of the control station in a different place than the control instrument; it allows the remote control and reading of results. This is useful when the measurement instruments have to be positioned in inaccessible locations, such as inside a machine to reduce the lengths of piping between the instrument and the test part

This front panel acts exactly as if the operator was in front of the instrument itself. For the interface, refer to the global operation of the instrument. This remote control is optional. It is connected to the LUMBERG type connector reserved for remote controls. It is of "plug and play" type, the instrument automatically detects it, and the “REMOTE CONTROL" menus appear if the RC5 remote control is connected. When the remote control is installed, its keyboard obtains priority over the control instrument’s keyboard which becomes inactive.

The remote control allows the remote operation and selection of various functions of the instrument in the ATEQ range. This interface can only be installed with an RC5 type remote front panel with the intelligent remote option. 2.7.2. Programmable keys This remote control is fitted with four function keys (F1, F2, F3 and F4) which can be programmed by the operator to fit his requirements (four buttons on the left). When a special cycle is used on a function key, it no longer appears in the menus for the other function keys. The programmable functions are all the special cycles and the cycle start (the cycle start function allows the simulation of a two handed remote control). Note: the synchronisation between the two buttons is of 300 ms, the two handed remote control is not a high security function, the ATEQ company would in no event be responsible if an accident should occur on an operator following its improper use. 2.7.3.

Chapter 7 – In the event of operational problems

Chapter 7

OPERATIONAL PROBLEMS 1. PHENOMENON NOTED If a test machine begins to detect too many bad parts (statistically, more than three consecutively), it is advisable to carry out a check on the whole unit. The quality of the manufacture and operation of the leak detector should be the last things considered. 1.1. CONDITION OF THE MACHINE'S SEALS This is the no.1 defect as the seals are subject to high levels of dirt contamination (alumina, shavings). Regular cleaning of the seals is an effective remedy. 1.2. DAMAGED INSTRUMENT SEALS There is a possibility that the seals may be cut by shavings or worn by repetitive squashing. This can be prevented by regular servicing and replacement of the seals. 1.3. BUMPER PAD This is a defect which may occur after a certain amount of time as the bumper pads may be worn, or if the pressure settings in the air cylinder are inadvertently disturbed. Check the stability of the measurement and that the bumper pads are correctly installed. 1.4. PNEUMATIC LINK The link and reference pipes will age and break with time. The pipes and seals must conform to the required quality. ATEQ recommends the use of RILSAN PA11 pipes and AVS type joints.

User manual ATEQ D520 Page 103/112

Chapter 7 – In the event of operational problems

1.5. ENVIRONMENT A measurement may be affected by a variation in background temperature (sun, draughts, storage of parts outdoors, handling of the test part by the operator, ...). The dampness of parts may cause errors in the readings (insufficient drying after washing, outdoor storage, condensation, presence of water in the fixture, ...). 1.6. CALIBRATION ATEQ does not accept any liability in regard to calibrations and settings to its instruments which are not carried out by its own personnel. 1.7. CONCERNS ABOUT RELIABILITY OF THE INSTRUMENT’S CIRCUITS If all the other checks do not resolve the problem, the instrument’s circuit may be checked. Proceed as follows: 9 Segregate the instrument from its environment (pneumatic assembly), 9 Place a calibrated master leak on the output, 9 Choose an unused program, 9 Set the parameters as follows : ⇒ the regulator

to the master leak test pressure,

⇒ the pressure monitoring thresholds

to +/- 20 % of the test pressure,

⇒ coupling times A and B

0 seconds,

⇒ fill time

1 second,

⇒ stabilisation time

1 second,

⇒ test time

infinite,

⇒ reject level

maximum,

⇒ unit

flow rating of the master leak,

⇒ function

all functions cancelled.

Run two consecutive cycles. The post test time result should be close to or equal to the value of the calibrated master leak.
