General warnings

warning 2-Using the unit without observing the manufacturer’s instructions may alter the appliance’s safety requirements.
– Detectors should be installed in a place protected from vibrations, water, and corrosive gases, where the ambient temperature does not exceed the value indicated in the technical data.

– Detectors supervise a point and not an area. If the gas leak does not reach the sensor, or the level of concentration at that point does not reach the alarm values, no alarm will be activated. If perimeter supervision is required, several sensors should be installed around that area.
Working conditions:
-Keep the detector work environment free of chemical agents (such as solvent, paints, alcohol, acetone, silicone, etc.), and free of engine fumes or gases from fermentation (bread, pizza) or ripening (breathing) of fruits.
-The detector should generally be installed in an area of potential concentration/accumulation of gas, in low positions (due to the greater relative density, in relation to air, of the gases subject to detection).
-The AKO-576410 / 576032 refrigerant gas detector may only be used in locations that have not been classified with risk of explosion.
-Reference regulations: EN 378
-Applicable local regulations: Compliance must be ensured

Description

Refrigerant gas detector, which can be used in the independent operation or connected to alarm stations AKOCam, AKOAlarm, and AKOGas.
Independent detector: The detector makes a certain warning sound in the event of an Alarm, Pre-Alarm, or sensor error and the red indicator lights up (See operation section).
Detector connected to the alarm station: The detector notifies the station of its status (Alarm, Pre-Alarm, or sensor error) and the station notifies the alarm through sound and indicators (for further information consult the station’s manual).AKO 576032 Semiconductor Gas Detectors - FIG 8Alarm delay

A levels B levels

Electric Warning IconAlways disconnect the power supply to do the wiring.
The wiring between the detector/transmitter and the station should NEVER be installed in a conduit together with power, control, or supply cables.
Cables for wiring the relay contacts should have an adequate section depending on the unit to be connected.
Certain international standards maintain that the power supply of the alarm should originate from a different circuit to that used by the refrigeration and ventilation system.
Please ensure that you comply with current local regulations.

Operation

Mute push-button
In the event of an Alarm or Pre-Alarm in process, any push-button press silences the Alarm/Pre-Alarm tone.
Any push-button press deletes saved alarms.
Medium press (between 3 and 9 sec.): It activates or deactivates the SET-HOLD mode. Should there be a sensor error, reset the detector.
Long press (> 9 sec.): It activates or deactivates the MAINTENANCE mode. Should there be a sensor error, reset the detector.

Configuration

In this mode, the acoustic alarm can be activated/deactivated or the detector can be returned to factory settings.
To activate it:

  1. – Disconnect the power supply, reconnect it and press the “CONFIGURATION” push-button 5 times within 2 minutes; the detector will emit a confirmation beep and the blue indicator will show the status of the acoustic alarm: ON: Acoustic alarm enabled / Flashing: Acoustic alarm disabled.
  2. – Press the Mute push button to enable/disable the acoustic alarm.
  3. – Press the “CONFIGURATION” push-button for 5 seconds to save the changes and exit the configuration mode; the detector will make 5 short beeps.

NOTEOptionally, you can return the detector to its factory settings. To do so, press the “CONFIGURATION” push button 5 times before step 3.

Pre-alarm jumper
Allows for Pre-alarm detection to be enabled/disabled. Before using this option, ensure that regulations allow for two alarm levels.
SET-HOLD mode
Prevents false alarms when charging or cleaning the chambers. While this mode is activated, pre-alarms will not signal and alarms will signal as pre-alarms when faced with all effects (sound, relay activation, and signaling). This mode will remain active for a maximum of 5 hours, then will deactivate automatically.
Maintenance mode
Disables gas pre-alarms and alarms for 1 hour for maintenance tasks. While this mode is activated, no gas pre-alarm or alarm will sound.
