ACI Tech Tips – How to Bump Test a Q5/B5 Gas Sensor

Sensors need to be checked and maintained on a periodic basis, especially gas sensors. ACI’s Tech Support Engineer Dave Weise shows us how to Bump Test the Q5/B5 Gas Sensor. The Q5 Series is a microprocessor based “smart” gas transmitter and the B5 Series is a BACnet® enabled, microprocessor based “smart” gas transmitter.

The Q5 Series is a microprocessor based “smart” gas transmitter. It is paired with either an electrochemical gas sensor for toxic gases, or a catalytic bead sensor for combustible gases. Pre-calibrated sensors can be purchased and installed by the user, thereby reducing calibration costs and minimizing downtime. The user can select from numerous display options, including relay status, time, TWA, STEL, concentration, or nothing at all. All programming and calibration is nonproprietary and is accessed through a user selectable password which protects system integrity. The Q5 series is covered by ACI’s Two (2) Year Limited Warranty. Please note: The Q5C-CO (carbon monoxide) models are UL 2075 compatible.

The B5 Series is a BACnet® enabled, microprocessor based “smart” gas transmitter. It is paired with either an electrochemical gas sensor for toxic gases, or a catalytic bead sensor for combustible gases. Pre-calibrated sensors can be purchased and installed by the user, thereby reducing calibration costs and minimizing downtime. The user can select from numerous display options, including relay status, time, TWA, STEL, concentration, or nothing at all. The units can be installed as stand-alone, or networked digitally with a BACnet® enabled controller. The B5 supports BACnet® MS/TP protocol and can be networked to form a BACnet® MS/TP network. The B5 can be set to be a Master Node or a Slave Node in the field.
