Title: The new experimental areas oxygen monitor

Because of the nature of the beamline requirements for oxygen monitoring equipment to operate ancillary equipment, such as exhaust fans, doors and cryogenic valves, and because of the well known problems of the oxygen sensors installed in high radiation areas, a new design for sensing the oxygen content of ambient air was needed. A new monitor system was designed to solve these problems and some others that compromised the reliability and the maintenance of the monitoring system. From the operating experience gained with the Accelerator Standard Oxygen Monitor System currently installed in many locations in the experimental area, from suggestions solicited from the Safety Group and from the Cryogenics Group, I designed a new Experimental Areas Standard Oxygen Monitor. Many suggestions were carefully considered and a design that incorporates most of them was constructed. I will summarize a list of the important improvements that will be of interest to the users of the system, and explain how these functions will make the oxygen system easier to live with. 2 figs.
