IMPORTANT

Register Product to Operate
To begin operation of your unit 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

Unpack the generator from the shipping crate, referring to the unpacking instruction
in the box, and position on a flat surface in desired area.
The unit should be left to acclimatize for 3 hours.

2.

3300407

First remove the compressor transit brackets.
These can be accessed by removing the generator’s right-hand side and top panels.
Starting with the top panel, use the 4mm Hex Key 3300407 to loosen the two
cap screws fixing the top plate to the rear of the generator, then tilt up and slide
backwards to release the top plate from the generator.
Page 7

3300407

Once the top plate has been removed, use the 4mm Hex Key 3300407 to loosen the
two cap screws fixing the right-hand side panel to the rear of the generator, then tilt
outwards and slide backwards to release the side plate from the generator.

4.

8mm Spanner

With the right-hand side plate removed, use an 8mm spanner to remove the hex nuts
holding the compressor doors in place, taking care to retain the spring washers.

Page 8

5.

10mm Spanner

The transit brackets are located below the compressors and have stickers on them
stating ‘Remove before use’. To remove the transit brackets, use a 10mm spanner
to remove the two screws on each bracket as indicated, then slide the brackets out
from underneath the compressors. There are two brackets on the XE 35 and four on
the XE 70. Please retain the brackets and screws for future transportation.

6.

8mm Spanner

Replace the compressor doors, again using an 8mm Spanner.

Select the 6mm Push Fit Fitting 02-4600 and attach to the Drain port at the rear of
the generator. Attach the Flow Control Silencer 02-1096 to the Nitrogen port.

00-1282

Connect the 6mm Polyethylene Tubing 00-1282 to the 6mm Push Fit Fitting 02-4600.
Fit the other end of the tubing to a suitable drain connection or container. The
container MUST NOT have an airtight seal as water and air will be expelled
periodically under a slight pressure. The generator will expel up to 5L per 24 hours
depending on ambient humidity.

10.

04-1024/04-1025/04-1026/04-1035
Select the appropriate power cable from the fittings kit and plug the IEC 60320/C19
cable into the power input at the rear of the generator.

[Initialisation...]
Model : GENIUS XE 35
Software : v0.00
Voltage : 230V RMS

Initialisation Time : 00:00

Continue...

The generator will now initialise. To ensure that the correct voltage is being supplied
to the generator, the generator will show the supply voltage on its front display. The
voltage reading should be checked prior to the initial purge of the system. 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). This can be ordered directly from
Peak Scientific.
For Genius XE 35 (120V) voltage should not be less than 114V.

The outlet pressure reading on the display will gradually increase to the factory set
pressure of 100 psi (6.9 bar).

Page 14

17.

If required, the output pressure can be adjusted using the pressure regulator at the rear of
the generator. View the pressure gauge below the regulator when setting the pressure.
This gauge is for indication only. The actual pressure should be confirmed on the display.

18.

minutes

Leave the generator switched on for a period of 30 minutes to purge the system.

Page 15

19.

After 30 minutes of running, the generator can be turned OFF.
Allow the stored gas in the internal tanks to dissipate.

20.

Once the pressure gauge at the rear of the unit reads 0, the silencer fitting can be
removed from the Nitrogen port.

CONGRATULATIONS

Your Peak Scientific gas generator is now fully installed, operational and ready to
supply gas on demand to your instrument.

General Notes
1. Electrical requirements for 230V generators are 195V - 253V 50/60Hz. For 195V 219V would highly recommend fitting a Dual Tap Transformer 06-3200 (XE 35) or 063210 (XE 70).
2. Electrical requirements for the 120V generator is 114V to 126V at 60 Hz.
3. The Teflon tube supplied in the fittings kit is to allow the generator to be installed
adjacent to the instrument it is supplying. If the generator is to be installed further
away from the instrument then attention needs to be paid to pressure drops that could
occur. The maximum distance away from the instrument the generator can be placed
still using 6mm (4mm internal diameter) or ¼” (3/16” internal diameter) tubing is 3m.
For further information relating to tubing lengths please refer to the user manual.
