Schedule
 
EQUIPMENT:
Equipment and systems covered by this certificate are as follows:
 

Handheld, battery powered instrument using photo-ionisation technology for the detection of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's) which can be dangerous from both a poisoning and explosive perspective. The TIGER uses a Photo-Ionization Detector (PID) to measure gas concentrations. and a patented fence electrode technology to minimise the effects of moisture and contamination, avoiding the need for compensation. The TIGER can be connected directly to a PC via a standard USB cable facilitating data download. An audio output, vibration and LED's are used to indicate alarm conditions. Orange and Red LED's indicate High and Low conditions respectively.  


The Instrument comprises three printed circuit boards, a pump motor, a vibration motor, certified PID Sensor and a battery pack all housed inside a plastic enclosure. There are two battery pack options; namely a rechargeable lithium ion battery pack using a SAFT MP174565 Integration cell and a non-rechargeable pack using three alkaline manganese cells, type Duracell Procell MN1500 which are user replaceable. 


Input Parameters: USB port:  Um = 6V. Charging connector for Li-Ion Battery Pack: Um = 6V.  

Refer to attached schedule of drawings.

 
CONDITIONS OF CERTIFICATION: YES as shown below:
 

The PhoCheck Tiger must be functionally checked prior to entering a hazardous area after every occasion when a connection has been made to the USB port. The instrument must complete its start up routine and display legible readings. If the LCD display fails to show an intelligible and uncorrupted display the instrument must not enter a hazardous area.

 

Do not make any connection to the charger port or USB port of this instrument in a hazardous area.
