1.6 Overview safety notes

The general safety instructions point out potential hazards during repairs.
To prevent constant repetitions, the following safety instructions are not
mentioned explicitly in the individual sections; instead, the sections con-
tain only references to the general safety instructions.
Prior to repairs, read the safety instructions carefully.
For any repairs, the listed location requirements apply.

1.6.1 Safety instructions for repairs


For any repair works at the device, the particular ambient conditions listed
as location requirements apply (see operating instructions).

Contamination hazard!
The incubator can be used for the permanent or temporary
storage of toxic or infectious substances or materials. There-
fore, the device or device components may be contaminated.
Always observe the hygiene regulations of the operator!
• Infectious or toxic substances or residues thereof must
always be removed completely from the work space.
• Prior to repairs, make sure that the device has been cleaned
and disinfected to exclude infection hazards!
• The operator must provide a declaration of decontamina-
tion.

Electric shock!
Contact with current-carrying components may cause a lethal
electric shock.
Prior to repairs, disconnect the device from the power supply
system:
• Isolate the device electrically.
• Protect the device from accidental reconnection.
• Make sure the device is de-energized.
• Ground and short the device.
• Isolate adjacent components or components to repair that

The electrical components must be handled only in compliance
with the guidelines of IEC-61340 Electrostatic, Handling ESD
(electrostatic discharge). Observe ESD safety measures during:
• packing and storage,
• unpacking,
• installation

Start-up:
If safety appliances were removed or disabled during repairs,
the device must not be started up before the safety appliances
have been reinstalled and checked for proper operation!
Before the incubator is started up and operated, a test run must
be performed.

1.6.2 Safety notes on carbon dioxide (CO 2)


Carbon dioxide Since CO2 is rated as a harmful gas, certain safety instructions must be
observed when the CO2 incubator is started up and when the device is
operated.

Suffocation hazard!
Large amounts of CO2 released into the room atmosphere may
cause suffocation.
If CO2 is released, initiate safety measures immediately!
• Leave the room immediately and do not allow others to
enter the room!
• Inform security service or fire department!

Instruction of the service personnel:


Personnel operating devices with CO2 supply must be
instructed about the particularities in the handling of CO2
before starting their work:
• Correct operation of pressurized gas containers and gas
supply systems,
• obligation to report damages and shortcomings in CO2
supply lines,
• measures to be taken in case of accidents or failures.

1.6.3 Safety notes on oxygen (O 2)


Oxygen O2 is a gas that promotes combustion and may explode in combination
with grease-containing materials.

Oxygen explosion!
O2 may explode in combination with oils, greases, and
lubricants. If highly compressed oxygen comes in contact with
grease- or oil-containing substances, the mixture may explode!
• For cleaning these device components, use only oil- and
grease-free lubricants.
• Keep all connections and components of the oxygen system
free from substances that contain oil, grease, or lubricant!

Fire hazard!
Released oxygen promotes combustion. Do not use open
flames in the vicinity of oxygen-operated systems!
• Do not smoke in the vicinity of oxygen systems.

Service Instructions | HERAcell 150 i / 240 i

1 General notes

• Do not expose the components of an oxygen system to


excessive heat.

1.6.4 Safety notes on nitrogen (N 2)


Nitrogen Nitrogen mixes easily with air. High concentrations of nitrogen reduce the
oxygen content in the air.

Suffocation hazard!
Large amounts of N2 released into the room atmosphere may
cause suffocation.
If N2 is released, initiate safety measures immediately!
• Leave the room immediately and do not allow others to
enter the room!
• Inform security service or fire department!

7 Calibration and settings

7.1 Temperature calibration

A temperature calibration is required, if the difference


between indicated actual value and measured value
(targeting value) is  ±0,2 °C, especially:
• after the main board has been replaced,
• after the TCD type measuring cell has been
replaced,
• after the IR measuring cell has been replaced.

Temperature calibration is performed in two steps:


• Test field calibration on the service level,
• temperature calibration on the user level.

7.1.1 Preparing the temperature calibration


For a comparison measurement, a calibrated
measuring instrument should be used (see chap. 2.2‚
pg. 15).
To minimize temperature fluctuations during the
measurement, the measuring instrument is positioned
in an isothermal container [3] (e.g. a beaker filled with
glycerin) in the work space.
The center of the work space is the reference location
for the comparison measurement.

Fig. 18: Preparing the temperature calibration

Isothermal container:
Do not use a container filled with water
as isothermal container as the evaporation
of the water will result in a too low
temperature.
Excessive work space temperature:
Excessive temperature in the work space
after the calibration can be reduced
by opening the doors for approx. 30
seconds.

Alternatively, a temperature probe can be installed at


the same location. The supply line is routed either
through the measurement aperture [2] in the glass
door or through the pipe duct [1] at the rear of the
device.
The center of the work space is again the reference
location.

 Set the CO2 set value to 0%,
 if the device is equipped with the (optional) O2
control, set the O2 value to 21%.

3. Request the service level.

4. In the service menu FE1 INCUBATION PARAMETERS,

The temperature factor must be entered
with three decimal places!

5. Perform auto-start.

6. Enable the service level again.

7. After the auto-start routine has been completed,


determine the new temperature factor of the
device. For this purpose, two different procedures
can be used.
– A: Measurement procedure / Temperature
calibration,
– B: Calculation procedure.

the CO2 value is within a range of 0% - 0,2 %.
If not, perform auto-start routine once more.

5. Set CO2 set value to 5 %.

6. Measure the CO2 set value:


 With stable CO2 set value, observe a period of
stability of at least one hour.
 Position the measuring instrument probe in the
work space (see operating instructions) and

• after change-over of the O2 sensor to another
control range.

Configuring the O2 sensor:


If the O2 sensor for another control range
has been replaced, prior to performing an
O2 calibration, the O2 sensor must be
reconfigured for the control range! Fig. 24: Setting the O2 control range

1. Enable the service level.

2. In the service menu FE11 O2, request the dialog


box CONFIGURATION O2 [1].

value) is:
• in control range I: 1% - 21%:  ± 0,5 %,
• in control range II: 5% - 90%:  ± 2,0 %.

When running auto-start, the O2 value is calibrated to


21% by default. When the O2 calibration is performed
thereafter, this value of 21% is overwritten.
