The Ax60+ installation and commissioning processes are fully described in the Ax60+ user manual and more succinctly in the Ax60+ quick start guide. All relevant product literature can be found in the Analox Sensor Technology website on the Ax60+ product page.
The Ax60+ is a gas detection platform system using RS485 communications to allow the user to connect up to 4 sensor units to the central display.
Each sensor is factory configured at location one. If a system includes more than one sensor each one must be reconfigured by moving the jumper link to the appropriate sensor location, e.g., a system comprising 2 sensors has the jumper link fitted at sensor 1 location 1, sensor 2 location 2 and so on. Remove the cover to access the jumper link.
The sensors are connected to the central display unit in a 'daisy-chain' configuration as follows:
The first sensor in the chain is connected directly to the Ax60+ central display unit, wiring can either be via the 'knock-out' on the rear of the unit or the optional gland on the bottom of the unit
Any subsequent sensors in the 'chain' simply double-up the communications connections within each previous sensor unit as follows:
Alarm units for each sensor are connected within the relevant sensor at the 'strobe sounder' terminals
Again, if multiple alarm units are to be used, these should be daisy-chained in the same way as with multiple sensor units
The Central Display software is factory configured for a system that has one sensor. If there are two, three, or four sensors
the software must be reconfigured. This is done by using the Top-level Menu, Central Config, Attached snsrs option.
1] Press and hold Cancel + Cycle for at least 6 seconds. Then press Cycle five times to display
2] Press Accept/Test to display the Attached snsrs screen.
3] Press Accept/Test again to select the Num. of sensors? Screen.
4] Press Cycle to toggle the number of sensors then press Accept/Test to confirm.
