Register Product to Operate
To begin operation you will need to register your generator. You can do so by
visiting www.peakscientific.com/activate or by downloading the Peak Genius
App.
Registering will activate your 2 year warranty* - covering every single
component in your generator.






Important!
You must register your generator before nitrogen generation can commence. In
order to be eligible for warranty your generator must be registered to the end
user (not a reseller or distributor) and must have a paid annual preventative
maintenance arranged within 12 months of the installation date & carried out by
a Peak approved Field Service Engineer. Once registered the warranty will be
honoured for a period of 24 months.*
* Call out and labour charges may apply where generator was not purchased directly from Peak

Installation
Generator Environment
The generator is designed for indoor use only. It should be installed adjacent to
the application(s) it is supplying. If this is not convenient then the unit can be sited
elsewhere. Consideration should be made of the lengths of pipe runs as pressure drops
can result from extended runs of pipe. See page 21 for guidance on tubing lengths
greater than 3m.
Performance of the generator is affected by ambient conditions. Note should also be
taken to the proximity of Air Conditioning outlets. These can sometimes give rise to
“pockets” of air with high relative humidity. Operation of the unit within such a pocket
could adversely affect its performance. Consideration should also be given to the air
flow around the unit. An air gap of 75mm (3”) should be maintained down both sides
and 100mm (4") at the rear of the unit. Please refer to the drawing opposite for the
general dimensions of the unit.
Please ensure generator is situated in a well ventilated environment and is positioned to
permit easy diconnection if required.
Minimum Operating Ambient Temperature:

5 °C (41 °F)

Maximum Operating Ambient Temperature:

35 °C (95 °F)

Operation in High Ambient Temperatures
Genius XE generators are designed to supply the rated flow, purity, and pressure in
most laboratory environments, however high ambient temperatures can affect the
performance of the generator. Output flow capabilities may be restricted in high
ambient temperatures, or areas with insufficient air circulation.

Drain Connection
Fit the 6mm push fit fitting to the drain port at the rear of the unit.
Tighten using a 16mm or 5/8” spanner. Use the 6mm tubing to connect this to a suitable
drain connection or container. It should be noted that the generator can expel a
considerable amount of water (dependant on ambient humidity).

CAUTION

Page 16

If a container is used it should be emptied at regular intervals. The
container must NOT have an air tight seal as water and air are expelled
at pressure. Fix the drain ending of the tube firmly to prevent it from
vibrating during draining.

Electrical Connection
Connect the generator to an appropriate 120 or 230 volt single-phase supply, refer to
the generator serial plate for input specification and ensure your supply matches the
requirements.
If the appropriate power cord is not supplied; a new plug, rated to at least 12 amps, can
be fitted by a qualified electrician.
If a substitute mains supply cord is used, ensure that it has adequate rating. Failure to
do so could cause a fire risk.

WARNING

This unit is classified as SAFETY CLASS 1. THIS UNIT MUST BE
EARTHED. Before connecting the unit to the mains supply, please
check the information on the serial plate. The mains supply must be of
the stated AC voltage and frequency.

Electrical requirements are 120VAC nominal +/- 5% or 230VAC nominal +/- 10%
depending on chosen model. Extended periods at extremes can have a detrimental
effect on the operation and life of the generator.
If the equipment is used in a manner not specified by the manufacturer,
the protection provided by the equipment maybe impaired.
WARNING

The supply voltage will be displayed on the touch screen when the generator is
switched on. If the reading is 219V or less, then we would highly recommend fitting
a Dual Tap Transformer 06-3200 (XE 35) or 06-3210 (XE 70). These can be ordered
directly from Peak Scientific.
For Genius XE 35 (120V) voltage should not be less than 114V.

Page 17

Start-Up Sequence

CAUTION

Before the generator is connected to the application, the generator
should be operated in isolation (i.e. not connected to the application)
for thirty minutes. This is to ensure any impurities present are purged
from the system. Failure to do this may harm the application.

Before connecting the generator to the mains and switching it on for the purge run, it is
necessary to fit the silencer to the nitrogen output port
Once this is done, the generator can be connected to the mains and switched on.
The Genius XE will then go through Product Registration. This is detailed on the next
page.
Continue to operate the generator for a further 30 minutes to allow all the internal pipework and storage tanks will have been purged with Nitrogen.
The generator is now purged, the silencers can be removed and the tubes can be
connected at the rear of the unit.

Page 18

Connecting to the application
Once the initial purge run of 30 minutes has completed, it is ready to be connected to
the application(s).

CAUTION

The pressure in the internal storage tanks must be allowed to dissipate
before connecting the generator to the application(s). This may be
done by leaving the Nitrogen port at the rear of the generator open
and turning off the power supply to the generator.

Select the appropriate 1/4" or 6mm fitting from the fittings kit and connect to the
generator outlet. Using the appropriate tubing, connect the outlet of the generator to
the inlet on the application.
If you require more tubing than is supplied please refer to the Tubing Lengths section.

CAUTION

Once the tubing is connected to the application, please ensure that it
is thoroughly checked for being leak-tight. Even the slightest leak in
the gas supply between the generator and the application can lead to
a drop in Nitrogen purity or insufficient pressure.

Tubing Lengths

CAUTION



The diameter of the tubing which will be connected to the gas outlet is
important and is determined by the length of tubing required. Failure
to follow these recommendations could lead could lead to excessive
pressure drops between generator and application.



> 3-10 meters:


Use 6mm OD / 4mm ID or 1/4” OD / 3/16” ID PTFE tubing.
Use 8mm OD / 6mm ID or 5/16” OD / 1/4” ID PTFE tubing.
Tubing and fittings not supplied in the fittings kit.

> 10 - 40 meters: Use 10mm OD / 8mm ID or 3/8” OD / 5/16” ID PTFE tubing.

Tubing and fittings not supplied in the fittings kit.

> 40 metres:


Page 21

Please contact Peak Scientific with the relevant distance and
we will calculate the flow resistance and the tubing size required.

Setting the Output Pressure
The output pressure is factory set to 100psi, however; the generator will deliver
Nitrogen at the rated flow up to a maximum pressure of 116psi. The output pressure can
be adjusted using the pressure regulator at the rear of the generator and viewed on the
adjacent gauge.
To ensure a smooth pressure profile, it is not recommended to increase the output
pressure above 116 psi.
The pressure gauge in the rear is for indication only and may differ from the reading on
the touch screen.

Normal Operation
Genius XE generators require minimal operator input. So long as the generator is
installed as described in earlier sections and is serviced in accordance with the
specified maintenance recommendations (see Service Requirements), then it will
operate in accordance with the demands of connected applications.
The generator will automatically produce the factory set pressure as detailed in the
technical Specifications. The outlet flow rate will vary to satisfy customer demand up
to a maximum flow rate in normal operating conditions of 35 LPM (Genius XE 35) or 70
LPM (Genius XE 70).
Genius XE generators are variable-purity systems, and will supply a higher purity of
nitrogen at lower flow rates, with a minimum purity of 95% nitrogen at the maximum
rated output flow.

Eco Mode
To reduce energy consumption and minimise component wear, Genius XE generators
feature a smart “Eco-Mode” which ensures gas is produced as is necessary to satisfy
demand.
When demand from the instrument stops the Genius XE generator will stop. If demand
from the application starts again, the system will detect the demand for gas and will
automatically restart. Additionally, if the flow demand from the generator is below its
maximum capacity, the generator will reduce the number of running compressors to
the minimum required.

Service Indication
The generator will notify the user of the service interval for the internal compressors.
The generator has the following Service Indication Stages:-

Stage 1 
12 months after installation, the service indicator will show on the display along with a
warning message.
This is to make the user aware that a service of the generator is due and should be
planned at the earliest convenience. The generator will continue to operate as normal
with the service indicator on. If the warning message has been acknowledged, the icon
will still be displayed in the corner of the HMI; pressing the icon will show the message
again.

Stage 2 
If the service is not completed the generator will continue to run. After 2 weeks, the
service overdue indicator will show on the HMI along with a warning message.
This is to make the user aware that the service of the generator is now overdue and
must be completed immediately to ensure the continuous trouble free operation of
the generator. If the warning message has been acknowledged, the icon will still be
displayed in the corner of the HMI; pressing the icon will show the message again.

Service Indication Reset
Once the service has been completed the Service Indication can be reset through the
service interface. This will be performed by the Peak Service Engineer or trained service
representative that completes the service operation.
