 FX-1000p amperometric chlorine analyzer     Welcome back to Blog, this is the second part of the blog that was posted on 5/20/11.

      The cell electrodes are connected to the amplifier section of the electronics, where the low level amperage is boosted and ranged to a usable signal. Specifically, 0 to 5 volts DC. The 0 to 5 VDC is then input to and isolation amplifier, which provides electrical isolation and an electrical safety barrier. The 0 to 5 VDC output of the isolation amplifier is then doubled to 0 to 10 VDC, which is used in the final 3 output stages of the circuit. These are the LED display, the alarm circuit and the 4-20 milliamp DC output signal. The amplifier board is powered by a dual bi-polar regulated DC power supply, which provides two sets of +12 and -12 volts. The LED display provides an instantaneous numerical reading of the chlorine residual in parts per million.The alarm circuit provides two user adjustable alarm level settings that activate two relay outputs, which can be used to control external devices or alarm annunciators. The FX-1000p amperometeric chlorine analyzer has been design with process control applications in mind, and as such, is an excellent choice for use in process control of chlorine residuals in freshwater, wastewater, salt water and food processing.

      Amplifier board calibration is done at the factory, with a default range of: 0 to 5 ppm. The unit can easily be re-ranged in the field. The analyzer can be ranged anywhere from a low of 0 to 0.5 ppm to a high of 0 to 60 ppm. On-site standardization (chlorine residual calibration) is done when the unit is commissioned, and thereafter needed or desired, using an accurate chlorine residual titrator (or test kit), and chlorinated and non-chlorinated sample of the process waters being analyzed.
