How do I change the isolation room setpoint for my FMS Controller?
The setpoint is changed by first accessing the Main Menu Setup. Tap the display in a space where no icons or text are present to activate the Main Menu Setup. The Main Menu Setup should be navigated as follows:
Main Menu Setup >> Select System Setup >> Select Analog Inputs >> Select Analog Input 1 >> Select Next repeatedly until Enter No-ISO setpoint (Be sure to polarize the value entered properly for negative setpoints) >> Select Next and Finish
How do I stop the FMS controller from sounding an alarm?
It is important to confirm the condition of the space. Alarms are intended to warn or alarm of undesirable conditions based on pressure limits set by the programmer. The FMS controller has both visual and audible alarms. The audible alarm can be silenced while allowing the visual alarm to continue.
Tap the display in a space where no icons or text are present to activate the Main Menu Setup, and then navigate as follows:
Main Menu Setup >> Select System Setup >> Select Next >> Select Alarms Setup >> Select Audible Alert >> Select Off for AI-1 or appropriate input >> or Select Next >> Select Silent Mode >> Select OK >> Select Exit
Can I monitor multiple isolation rooms with one FMS Controller?
The FMS-1650 and FMS-1655 have 4 analog inputs available. Follow the directions below to configure each analog input.
Tap the display in a space where no icons or text are present to activate the Main Menu Setup. Navigate the menus as follows:
Main Menu Setup >> Select System Setup >> Select Analog Inputs >> Select Analog Input # (Note: Analog Input 1 defaults as Primary Pressure Input) >> Select Input Type as Pressure >> Select Sensor Type as Rmt Digital 4-20mA >> Select Disabled Linearization and Select Normal Input Mode >> Select Next >> Select Engineering Units and Select Range >> Select Next >> Select Sensor Range of +/-0.25 >> Select Next >> Enter ISO Setpoint >> Select Next >> Enter Dead Band >> Select Next >> Repeat for Analog Inputs as Needed
How do I acquire a NIST Traceable Certificate of Calibration for my Triatek pressure sensor?
Contact Triatek technical support via email (email@example.com) or phone (770-242-1922). Provide your unit’s model and serial numbers with your request for a calibration quote and/or return authorization. There are a few calibration certificate options available for consideration. Please see below. Contact Triatek for more details.
- Calibration with No Certificate
- Calibration with Post Calibration Certificate
- Calibration with Pre and Post Calibration Certificate
Can a pressure field calibration be completed with FMS-1650 or FMS-1655 to correct inaccurate readings?
Some Triatek systems have field calibration features, such as the FMS-1650L. However, none of the field calibration processes have the ability to calibrate the sensor with controlled air throughout the entire range of the sensor and at 20 points of scale.
Therefore, a factory calibration ensures the sensor linearization is accurate throughout the entire range of sensitivity. In contrast, the field calibration allows you to set a zero differential reference and a single differential pressure. To do this you must have an anemometer to measure DP and provide an accurate differential pressure to reference.
Why do I need to calibrate my working controller and pressure sensor?
The factory recommends that you calibrate your sensors every two years for a few reasons. Electronic drift happens over time with sensitive instruments. Also, dust accumulated in ductwork contains large amounts of organic materials such as fungal spores. The foreign particulates can build over time resulting in restrictive air passages and inaccurate pressure readings. Calibrating your sensors will ensure it meets the reliability specifications of Triatek.
