Safety Info – Read First

Use the detector only as specified in the manual and quick reference guide, otherwise the protection provided by the detector may be impaired.
The detector is a personal safety device. It is your responsibility to respond properly to the alarm. Read the following Cautions before using the detector.
CAUTION

  • Caution: For safety reasons, this equipment must be operated and serviced by qualified personnel only. Read and understand the user manual completely before operating or servicing.
  • Charge the detector before first-time use. Honeywell Analytics recommends the detector be charged after every workday.
  • Charge the battery pack immediately when a low battery alarm occurs.
  • Read and adhere to the battery cautions.
  • Honeywell Analytics recommends that the combustible sensor be checked with a known concentration of calibration gas after any exposure to contaminants/poisons such as sulfur compounds, silicon vapors, halogenated compounds, etc.
  • Honeywell Analytics recommends to bump test the sensors before each day’s use to confirm their ability to respond to gas by exposing the detector to a gas concentration that exceeds the alarm setpoints. Manually verify that the audible and visual alarms are activated. Calibrate if the readings are not within the specified limits.
  • For an additional bump test caution relating to the European Regulations, refer to user manual.
  • Calibrate the detector before first-time use and then on a regular schedule, depending on use and sensor exposure to poisons and contaminants. The sensors must be calibrated regularly and at least once every 180 days (6 months).
  • Only the combustible gas detection portion of this instrument has been assessed for performance by CSA International.
  • The combustible sensor is factory calibrated to 50% LEL methane. If monitoring a different combustible gas in the % LEL range, calibrate the sensor using the appropriate gas.
  • Caution: High off-scale LEL readings may indicate an explosive concentration.
  • Protect the combustible sensor from exposure to lead compounds, silicones, and chlorinated hydrocarbons. Although certain organic vapors (such as leaded gasoline and halogenated hydrocarbons) may temporarily inhibit sensor performance, in most cases, the sensor will recover after calibration.
  • For use only in potentially explosive atmospheres where oxygen concentrations do not exceed 20.9% (v/v). Oxygen deficient atmospheres (<10% v/v) may suppress some sensor outputs.
  • Any rapid up scaling reading followed by a declining or erratic reading may indicate a gas concentration beyond the upper scale limit, which can be hazardous.
  • Extended exposure of the GasAlertMicro 5, GasAlertMicro 5 PID, or GasAlertMicro 5 IR to certain concentrations of combustible gases and air may stress the detector element that can seriously affect its performance. If an alarm occurs due to a high concentration of combustible gases, recalibration should be performed or, if needed, the sensor replaced.
  • The BW pump module (M5-PUMP) is certified for use with the GasAlertMicro 5, GasAlertMicro 5 PID, and GasAlertMicro 5 IR models only.
  • Protect the PID sensor from exposure to silicone vapors.
  • When calibrating O3 and ClO2 sensors that are located in the Toxic 2 position of the detector, a single gas calibration cap must be used to ensure accurate calibration. erratic reading may indicate a gas concentration beyond the upper scale limit, which can be hazardous.
  • Extended exposure of the GasAlertMicro 5, GasAlertMicro 5 PID, or GasAlertMicro 5 IR to certain concentrations of combustible gases and air may stress the detector element that can seriously affect its performance. If an alarm occurs due to a high concentration of combustible gases, recalibration should be performed or, if needed, the sensor replaced.
  • The BW pump module (M5-PUMP) is certified for use with the GasAlertMicro 5, GasAlertMicro 5 PID, and GasAlertMicro 5 IR models only.
  • Protect the PID sensor from exposure to silicone vapors.
  •  When calibrating O3 and ClO2 sensors that are located in the Toxic 2 position of the detector, a single gas calibration cap must be used to ensure accurate calibration.
  • Replace the sensors only in a safe and non-hazardous area that is free of hazardous gas in an atmosphere of 20.9% oxygen.
  • Dispose of used lithium cells immediately. Do not disassemble and do not dispose of in fire. Do not mix with the solid waste stream. Spent batteries must be disposed of by a qualified recycler or hazardous materials handler.
  • Keep lithium cells away from children.
  • Before using common products around sensors, refer to Sensor Poisons and Contaminants on the GasAlertMicro 5/PID/IR User Manual.
  • High concentrations of certain toxic gases, for example H2S, may have an adverse effect on the LEL sensor. This effect, known as inhibition, is usually temporary but in extreme circumstances can impair the sensitivity of the LEL sensor.
  • After any gas exposure that causes an alarm in the toxic gas sensors, the LEL sensor should be verified with a bump test, and recalibrated if necessary.
  • Products may contain materials that are regulated for transportation under domestic and international dangerous goods regulations. Return product in compliance with appropriate dangerous goods regulations. Contact freight carrier for further instructions.

WARNING

  • Substitution of components may impair Intrinsic Safety.
  •  The battery pack (M5-BAT08) is equipped with a lithium battery that may present a risk of fire or chemical burn hazard if misused. Do not disassemble, heat above 212ºF (100ºC), or incinerate.
  • Do not use any other lithium batteries that are not designed for use with the GasAlertMicro 5, GasAlertMicro5 PID, or GasAlertMicro5 IR detectors. Use of any other cell can cause fire and/or explosion. To order and replace the M5-BAT07 or the M5IR-BAT08 lithium battery pack, contact Honeywell Analytics.
  • Lithium polymer cells exposed to heat at 266°F (130°C) for 10 minutes can cause fire and/or explosion.

Bump Test

A bump test is the process of applying a small amount of test gas to force the detector into alarm. A bump test should be performed regularly to confirm the sensors are responding correctly to gas, and that the audible, visual, and vibrator alarms activate during an alarm condition. Calibrate if the readings are not within specified limits.

Honeywell-GasAlertMicro-5-Series-Multi-Gas-Detector-03
CAUTION
Honeywell recommends to bump test the sensors before each day’s use to confirm their ability to respond to gas by exposing the sensors to a gas concentration that exceeds the alarm setpoints. Should the user wish to comply with European Regulations, a bump test must be completed before each day’s use. Refer to EN 60079-29-2.
Follow this procedure when Bump Daily is enabled:

  1. Connect the calibration hose to the 0.5l/min regulator on the gas cylinder.
  2.  Connect the calibration hose to the intake inlet on the calibration cap. Arrows on the calibration
