in a convenient location preferably at the source of propane usageie galley heater etc where the visual indicators may be readily seen To install the displayyou must first remove the snapon bezel by inserting a small flat blade screwdriver into the slotlocated on either side of the bezel and carefully prying up until the bezel snaps free See figure 5CAUTION Do not attempt to remove the four 4 screws which are now exposed which attachthe printed circuit panel to the frame Doing so will void all warrantiesNext drill a 21 16 diameter hole into the panel Slip the instrument through the hole andsecure making sure that you have access to the terminals for solenoid valve connections positiveand negative terminal connections and sensors  in your sensor to connector one and make positive and negative connections for the displayand solenoid valve Finish the installation by fastening to panel with four screws provided andsnapping bezel back into placePN 18122

lighter than air and will rise Therefore it is important that alocation be selected that is within nine 9 inches 2286cm of the ceiling height Do not locatesensor directly over cooking or heating appliances Keep sensor drySolenoid  LPG  Mount the solenoid inline on the tankside of the LPG regulator as close to the tank as is practicalThe tank itself should be mounted outside the cabin orcrew quarters to avoid the possibility of gas  to a leak between the tank and the solenoid valveCNG  Because of the high tank pressure of CNG thesolenoid valve MUST be installed after the CNG regulatorand as close to the regulator as practical The tankand regulator should be mounted outside the cabin orcrew quarters to avoid the possibility of gas  to a leak between the tank and the solenoid valveNOTE DO NOT overtighten fittings Doing so will causethe solenoid valve to malfunction After installation checkall fittings for leaks with a soapy water solution  NEVER                          Figure 3use

addition the isolated  of fumes may damage the sensor and render it inoperativeTo TEST SENSOR use butane lighter with the striker wheel removed Hold the lighter to thesensor and press down on the lever to release the Butane In three to four seconds the warninglight will come on In about ten seconds the alarm horn will sound Remove lighter from thesensor Mute the alarm horn and within several seconds the warning light will shut offWhenever the S2A alarms the horn may be muted with the MUTE button but THEPROBLEM SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED CLEARED UNTIL THE ALARM LIGHTGOES OUTSensor Fault  the unit determine that either of the sensors is faulty or disconnected the  will change to amber and the horn will sound Check that the sensor is connected andthat wiring has not been frayed or cut Should this condition persist the sensor has been damagedand must be replacedUnit Fault  an internal failure occur the unit fault light will display amber and the horn will soundShould this occur return the display to the manufacturer for repairNuisance AlarmsThe sensor used for the S2A is sensitive to hydrocarbons an alarm may be triggered by the useof other chemicals such as cleaners paint polish etc The sensors will also detect hydrogenfumes from an overcharged battery If no gasoline fumes are present check for recent use ofcleaners fiberglass repairs strong adhesives etc If none of these are present the sensor mayhave been damaged and will need  S2A has been designed to alarm nominally at 20 of the LEL Lower Explosive Limit ofPropaneCNG Implement immediately the following procedures in the event of an alarm Shutdown all appliances Manually shut oft the source of PropaneCNG Turn off all electrical circuitsEXCEPT circuits which operate blowers andor exhaust fans Remove all personnel from thearea Ventilate the area turn on exhaust fans and open windows hatches etc Carefully checkall fuel lines tanks and fittings to locate the leak Have the problem repaired by  S2A requires very little maintenance Periodically examine the sensors for contamination ordamage Check that sensor wires are not frayed pinched or cut Test the operation of bothsensors and display frequently Do NOT expose sensors to liquids or chemicalsWhen cleaning seal off the sensors with a plastic covering Harsh chemicals may damage thesensor Keep sensors sealed until the compartment has been completely  DO NOT FORGET TO REMOVE SENSOR COVERINGS OR THE S2A WILLNOT OPERATE CORRECTLYPN 18122                                   Page 6                                        Rev 10
