Modifying the LI-6262 CO2/H2O Gas Analyzer for automatic restart

Modifying the LI-6262 CO2/H2O Gas Analyzer for automatic restart

Some research applications may require that the LI-6262 CO2/H2O analyzer (or the LI-6252 CO2 analyzer) automatically restart after a power outage. By design, the LI-6262 will not automatically restart after a power interruption, but with a simple modification it can be configured to do so. This is accomplished with some minor soldering (in a tight location).

First, unplug the analyzer from its power supply. Open the LI-6262 by removing…

If the LI-6400/6400XT is used under these conditions, the instrument keyboard may stop working properly due to moisture ingress between the membrane contacts.

The easiest solution to this problem…
