Detector FPD-2014

Replacement of the Cooling Fan Backup Batteries

To protect the filter, the FPD-2014 uses a fan to cool the filter section while the power is on. A backup battery has been incorporated which keeps the fan powered until the temperature of the filter section drops sufficiently in the event of a power failure, or if the power to the GC was turned off without lowering the detector temperature. An error will arise when this battery is depleted, and the temperature control function of the FPD unit will stop. When this happens, replace the battery.
