Accessories Instruction Sheet

*1. Clean dry gas (Must not contain large particles, e.g. dust, oils, or mist.)
*2. The flow rates are converted for the following conditions. Standard flow rate (std): 1 atmospheric pressure (101.3 kPa)
       at 20°C (default setting) Normal flow rate (nor): 1 atmospheric pressure (101.3 kPa) at 0°C
*3. To prevent chattering, a judgement output is made when the judgement continues for one minute or longer.
*4. The accuracy will depend on the length of the straight pipe section. Refer to Flow rate accuracy characteristics for a
       length of straight pipe on page 12 for details.

Accessories Instruction Sheet, Startup Guide, Connection Cable, *7 Alarm Output Connector *8

*1. Up to 8 Sensors can be connected when the recording cycle is 2 seconds or longer; up to 4 Sensors can be connected
      when the recording cycle is 1 second.
*2. Data is automatically written to the SD memory card when the internal memory reaches its capacity and recording
     continues until the SD memory card capacity is reached. Recording stops if there is no SD memory card inserted, when
     the internal memory capacity is reached, or when the SD memory card is write protected. (Recording can be resumed
     after inserting an SD memory card and outputting the data to it by pressing a button.) The default is Continue Mode. Use
     the PC Software to change the recording mode.
*3. Recording of the latest measured values continues until the internal memory reaches its capacity. (If the internal
     memory capacity is exceeded, data is overwritten from the oldest data in the memory.)
*4. An alarm is output when the upper or lower limit of the air flow that was set in threshold setting mode is exceeded.
*5. You can temporarily read and write data with an SD card that complies with SD/SDHC card standards and was made by
     another company, but the SD card may suddenly not be recognized, preventing you from accessing the data.
*6. When mounting the Sensor with magnets, be sure to install it in a location where it will not be subjected to shock.
*7. A T-branch connector to connect to D6FZ-FC02.
*8. OMRON's XW4B-02B1-H1 Connector.
