OS-6 Sensor Components:
The OS-6 consists of a base unit, the OS-6 itself. This is attached to the SM-7 remote sensor using a 3-wire cable up to 100 meters long. The SM-7 is a sensor module that detects the ozone and sends that signal back the OS-6 base unit. The OS-6 base unit includes relays, voltage outputs, and a display. The SM-EC sensor chip is installed in the SM-7 sensor module. The SM-EC is a replaceable sensor chip that is pre-calibrated and can be plugged in and out without any other modification.
Summary, there are three main components
- OS-6 base unit includes the relays, voltage output, and display
- SM-7 Sensor module houses the ozone sensor and measures ozone
- SM-EC sensor chip is the replaceable sensor chip itself
All three of these pieces are included when you buy an OS-6.
The newest configuration uses the OS-6, with the SM-7 sensor module that uses the SM-EC sensor. This is now available to achieve the 50 ppm ozone detection range.
The OS-6 is available in a 0-20 ppm, or 0-50 ppm range sensor. Standard configuration is 0-20 ppm range. Each sensor is pre-calibrated with all calibration data contained on the sensor itself. Therefore, either sensor will work in the OS-6 and even existing OS-6's in the field can be configured with either range sensor without any negative consequences. The SM-EC sensor chip is used and is replaced at a very low cost when calibration is necessary for these applications
For many ozone control applications for odor, food, or other industrial applications the 0-20 ppm sensor will suffice and work well.
The OS-6 comes with the newest SM-EC sensor integrated into the SM-7 Sensor Module. This is an electrochemical sensor with a range of 0-50 ppm. This sensor has great advantages in high humidity environments, or areas where there may be high VOC's or other gasses. While the HMOS sensors can be extremely accurate, they are typically more cross-sensitive than an electrochemical sensor. The 0-50 ppm range will not be suitable for most human safety applications, but will be great for industrial ozone generator control.
The OS-6 is shipped standard with a cable length between the OS-6 base and the SM-7 sensor of about 6 feet. This is sufficient to place the sensor in a room, and the base unit outside the door with the wire running up the wall, and back down again. For any other longer purposes longer wire will be required.
Simple telephone wire is used and shipped with the OS-6 sensor. This is sufficient and will work well for distances up to 100 feet.
We have tested the accuracy and capabilities of the OS-6 up to and beyond the manufacturer's suggested 100 meters (328 feet) max distance. In our testing cable lengths greater than 100 feet should use shielded cable with at least a 22 gauge wire. We have tested an 18 gauge 18-3 high quality shielded cable at distances up to 1,000 feet with good results. If you are looking at using an OS-6 remote sensor at lengths greater than 100 meters give us a call, we would be glad to help you with your application.
OS-6 Indicators and Lights:
OS-6 Relay Operation:
The OS-6 includes 2 relays for control or alarm purposes, and 1 alarm relay.
- The Safety Relay is factory set to 0.1 ppm and cannot be changed. This is to ensure the OSHA limit is adhered to and reduces the risk of tampering.
- Control Relay can be set to any level the user chooses to control an ozone generator, or another alarm point.
- Alarm Relay is a timer that can be set to alarm after a certain period of minutes that the ozone level is above the control relay. This is to alert of a failure of the system, or alert that the ozone level in a room has been above the safe limit for more than the allotted time.
All of these alarms are set with pushbuttons that are easily accessible in the wiring compartment of the OS-6. Simply remove two screws and the cover to gain access. See image below:
Wiring of the OS-6:
The OS-6 has 3 alarms, a voltage output, 4-20mA output, RS-232 output, and remote ozone sensor wiring. All of this wiring is done in the wiring compartment on the bottom of the monitor. See image below for details:
