CHAPTER 1

SAFETY

These warnings and instructions for use form an integral part of the CRC®-15 Remote
Display and must therefore be kept available for consultation at all times. Precise
compliance with the instructions is an essential condition for normal use, correct application
and thus safety of the user.

LABEL DEFINITION

Located on one side of the Remote Display is a label (see Fig. 1-1).

Figure 1-1

DC In (5V 1.5A)
This receptacle is where the 5 Volt power supply (90~264VAC) is plugged in.

Contrast
These controls adjust the contrast of the LCD Displays. The contrast adjustment
adjacent to the OFF/ON slide switch controls the larger upper display. The contrast
adjustment adjacent to the DC IN receptacle controls the smaller lower display.

Off/On
This slide switch applies input power to the unit.

Data
Communications port, which is attached to the RS-232 on a CRC®-15 Series Readout
Unit.

FUNCTIONAL & TECHNICAL
DESCRIPTION

FUNCTIONAL DESRIPTION

The Remote Display Unit is controlled by the CRC®-15 Series Dose Calibrator. Its function is
to remotely display information that is present on the CRC®-15 display. The CRC®-15
Remote Display Unit communicates via a RS-232 interface and can be located as much as
100 feet from the main unit.

TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION

Environment Requirements
Operational
The instrument should be located where the level of the background radiation is as
low and as constant as possible.

The instrument should be located where the temperature is stable within a range of
+50°F to +85°F (+10°C to +30°C) and the maximum relative humidity is 90% non-
condensing to warrant maximum reliability and accuracy.

The instrument should be located where the barometric pressure is within a range of
27 – 31 inches of mercury.

Storage
The instrument should be stored where the temperature is stable and the range is
from +39°F to +115°F (+4°C to +43°C) and the maximum relative humidity is 90%
non-condensing to warrant maximum reliability.

The instrument should be stored where the barometric pressure is within a range of
15 – 33 inches of mercury.

CAUTION

If these environmental requirements are not followed, the instrument may display erroneous
readings.

CHAPTER 4

OPERATION

GENERAL

The Remote Display Unit is controlled by the CRC®-15 Series Dose Calibrator. Its function is
to remotely display information that is present on the CRC®-15 display. The CRC®-15
Remote Display Unit communicates via a RS-232 interface and can be located as much as
100 feet from the main unit.

SETUP

The setup of the Remote Display Unit is as follows:
1. Verify that the Remote Display Unit has been setup as indicated in CHAPTER 2:
SYSTEM SETUP.
2. Verify that the unit is powered on, as indicated in CHAPTER 2: SYSTEM SETUP.
3. Put the CRC®-15 Series Dose Calibrator in a Measurement Mode. The Remote
Display should show a display of information similar to Figure 3-2. The time, activity,
and nuclide values will probably not be the same as illustrated. If the large display is
as shown in Figure 3-1, repeat steps 1 and 2.

Note: The display shown in Figure 3-1 can occur if the CRC®-15 Series Dose Calibrator is
not in a Measurement Mode. For example, using the UTIL mode.

DISPLAY

The display illustrated in Figure 3-2 shows a measurement of I131.

The large display shows the activity value.

The smaller display gives further information about the measurement. The left side shows
the nuclide that is being measured and the current time is displayed at the far right.

DISPOSAL

There are no special precautions needed when disposing of the unit.

FUSE SERVICING

CAUTION

FOR CONTINUED PROTECTION, REPLACE ONLY WITH
SAME TYPE AND RATING OF FUSE

The fuse is located inside the Remote Display Unit on the main circuit board. This fuse is
rated at F 750mAH 250 Volts.

To change these fuses:
1. Turn off the power to the CRC®-15 Series Dose Calibrator and Remote Display Unit.
Unplug the Remote Display power supply line cord from the power receptacle.

2. With the Remote Display Unit on a flat surface, remove the four screws from the front
panel. Lift the front panel off of the unit.

3. Remove the six white nylon screws (3 on each side) from the large circuit board
containing the LCD modules. Grasp the two LCD displays and gently pull up with a
rocking motion. Upon removal of the board, the fuse will now be visible (located
beside the ON/OFF slide switch) on the next board down.

4. To remove the blown fuse from the fuse clips, use a small flat blade screwdriver (or
fuse removal tool) and gently pry up on the fuse from the side.

5. Replace the fuse with an F 750mAH 250 Volt fuse.
