Technical Information
Class 1 (Earthed Appliance) Construction
(Single basic insulated and protectively earth equipment)
This type of product design provides two safety barriers between all live conductors at dangerous voltages and
the equipment user.
The provision of basic insulation between exposed metal parts and live parts is the first barrier to provide basic
protection against electric shock.
The second safety barrier is by the connection of exposed (accessible) conductive (metal) parts to the protective
earthing conductor (earth wire) in the fixed wiring of the device/Installation.
The protective earthing terminal of the equipment must be marked with the word "earth" or the symbol "E" or the
symbol for Earth Terminal or Protective.
To perform this test a continuous earth loop must be made between the exposed conductive material (metal)
and the TnP appliance tester. This is done by means of connecting the earth lead with the crocodile clip/probe
attached to a GOOD earth point (paint & coatings will not provide effective connections) and the DUT (Device
Under Test) plugged into the TnP appliance testers’ DUT socket. The Maximum allowable limit is less than1.0
(ohm).
Refer Page 8 on how to extend time to get a true earth connection ( Unique Earth Bond Test Feature )
Class 2 (Double Insulated) Construction
(Double insulated equipment)
This method of construction employs two safety barriers comprising two layers of insulation between
dangerous voltages and the user of the equipment.
The first layer of insulation is formed around the live conductor and is termed ‘the Functional Insulation’.
The second layer of insulation is termed ‘the Supplementary Insulation’. In Class II equipment, protection against
electric shock does not rely on basic insulation only, but has additional supplementary insulation such as double
insulation or reinforced insulation provided, there being no reliance on precautions in the fixed wiring of
installation.
Class II equipment is marked with the words "DOUBLE INSULATION" or the symbol
For double insulated under Safety Symbols:
Note 1 – Double Insulation is insulation comprising both basic and supplementary insulation.
Note 2 – Reinforced Insulation is a single insulation system with a degree of protection against electric shock,
which is equivalent to double insulation.

Wavecom Instruments Fully Integrated Test n Print Unit User Manual
Testing of Electrical Equipment
Many testing personnel have some reservations in testing sensitive, electronic equipment using a 500V DC
insulation test. There is a perceived fear of causing internal damage from over voltage. With the introduction on
the TnP Range of appliance testers, these concerns are alleviated.
The TnP Range of electrical portable appliance testers is safe to test electronic equipment as the tests are
carried from Active-Neutral (shorted by a relay inside the tester) to Earth. No dangerous voltages pass through in
this mode to the internal components of the DUT (Device Under Test). If these tests are done using an
Insulation Tester only and the user tests Active to Neutral, this would be a cause of potential damage, this is
why the TnP product range is far safer to use.
Some changes may be required in certain configurations where fitted surge protection devices (MOV's) in the
DUT may cause a failed test result. Applying 500V in this these situations can cause the surge protection
devices to trip, therefore conducting the applied voltage to earth, thus showing a failure of insulation. In these
instances the test voltage should be changed to 250V then retest. If DUT still fails, check with the DUT
Operators Manual or an electrician. [for details see - ‘Double Insulation Test’ 250/500VDC to change test
voltage].
Under these circumstances, it would be difficult for any damage to occur to either the surge protection device or
the DUT, as there is insufficient current generated by the TnP test unit.
Leakage Test:
If there are any doubts with insulation testing of the equipment, the standard
(AS/NZ3760 since 2001) allows for an alternative test method. A Leakage Test can be performed instead. (The
TnP – Series are designed to perform these tests).
NOTE: 10Amps MAXIMUM Resistive Load only (Standard TnP Series units).
A Leakage Test applies power to the Device Under Test (DUT) and measures the imbalance of leakage current
from the DUT between the active and neutral conductors. The leakage is tested to the limits specified in the
standard and a Pass/Fail result as well as a digital reading is provided to ensure that the user gains as much
information as necessary.
Earth Continuity Test, commonly called EARTH BOND TEST:
Note: Part of normal (Class 1 test) procedure
Use supplied IEC–Croc clip lead or optional accessory ‘WCM-Probekit’.
The TnP.500 unit conducts earth continuity tests at Approx. 200mA. Continuity tests at higher currents are
not required or recommended on certain equipment as this may cause severe damage or premature failure to
the Device under test (see AS/NZS 3760:2010).
Unique Earth Bond Test Feature
Note: Test time with the new TnP-500 series can now be user controlled. This function enables testing personnel
to extend the Earth Bond test time by 30 second increments!
This is achieved by momentarily pushing the ENTER
button once, during the test.
The TnP-500 will then add 30 seconds to the test time for ENTER button press.
This feature has been incorporated to provide extra time to achieve an adequate physical connection, or confirm
any possible INTERMITTENT issues. There may be situations where the condition of equipment, coatings
applied, or suspect wiring breaks may alter the earth connection path of the device under test.
Benefit to test personnel is to save time by not having to continually repeat tests in a less than perfect situation.
3 Phase Testing: *Optional equipment required
3 Phase appliances can be tested by the TnP series appliance testers. As the insulation tests are from Phase to
Earth, only a 500V insulation test is required. This test may be carried out by using the optional adaptor ‘WCM3PH-MADP’ [See ‘Optional Accessories’ for details.]
Note: The TnP500 series will not perform a 3 Phase Leakage test.
Contact Wavecom Instruments Pty Ltd for information on appropriate testers.

To Change Test Voltage
To change the test voltages select the "change ins" from the options menu. Please refer to the special
functions section of this manual.
Please Note: The TnP - Series will automatically default to 500VDC when restarted.
Integrated Tests
Supply Mains Test
The Supply Mains Test checks the polarity and connectivity of the mains supply by LED's. This test is also a
part of all the testing functions of this unit.
If the N-E (red) light is on and you need to conduct load/leakage tests DO NOT CONTINUE. If
you are carrying out standard Insulation and Earth Bond tests, it is generally safe to
continue. This light will glow if a voltage difference lies between the neutral and the earth, or if
no earth is connected to the TnP- Series supply. (If working with a generator or inverter, this is
most likely to occur and you may need to consult an electrician before proceeding).
If both the A-E & A-N (green) lights are on but not the N-E (red), mains supply test is ok,
continue to test.
If both of the N-E (red) & A-E (green) lights are on, consult an Electrician, as there is a fault
with the Mains Supply.
NCNT Test
(No Connection No Test)
The TnP – Series appliance testers ensure that the appliance is plugged in and switched on. This test is also a
part of all of the testing functions of this unit.
This test function ensures that the appliance is plugged into the TnP appliance tester and that it is switched on. If
the device is not plugged in and the TnP appliance tester detects that no device is present, plug in to continue
the test or confirm ‘QUIT’ to return to the main menu.
If for some reason the NCNT circuit does not detect the device but it is actually plugged in and turned on, the
operator will need to override the NCNT function.
To do this Over Ride Press F3
With an emphasis in the Standard AS/NZ3760:2010 for carrying out the live testing the TnP - Series appliance
testers will indicate for you to check if the device is plugged in and switched on. If the device is not plugged in
and/or recognised, it may require a live test therefore making it necessary for the operator to carry out a full
functional Leakage Test (Available on all models of TnP – Series).
This function is to ensure that correct testing procedures are carried out in accordance with the Standard
AS/NZ3760:2010.

Wavecom Instruments Fully Integrated Test n Print Unit User Manual
*Optional
Note: When using 3-Phase adaptors the NCNT function will need to be over ridden by pressing the ‘OK’ key
prior to the TnP appliance tester performing the assigned test. Some single Phase appliances controlled by
contactors will also require manual over ride. In some instances holding the ‘ON’ button will enable the NCNT
function to work normally.

removes the whole record and not just the test results. If a record is deleted and replaced it might create a new
record when downloaded in WinPATS. This is because the record details didn't match the original ones. Multiple
items cannot be deleted at the same time.

Meter Mode Uses
Meter Mode is a new and versatile function that will allow you to display Electrical Parameters from a Power
outlet source or from the appliance under test.
Typical Applications
Example.: Measuring the Power of a bar heater, or electric power drill check the ratings and compare them to
that on the compliance plate etc. Quick test of Power outlet Voltages in rooms or locations split from multiple
circuits.
Meter Mode Features – (Four Discrete Options)
Electrical parameters are displayed as Volts, Amps, Watts, and Volt / Amps
These electrical parameters will be displayed on the Testers main screen display. Select from the 4 Test
available in Meter Mode.
Meter Mode Measures and displays volts in AC, Current in Amps, Power Measurement in Watts and VA in
Volt/AMPS

Wavecom Instruments Fully Integrated Test n Print Unit User Manual
Explanation of Electrical Parameters
Volts

A volt is the unit used to measure the energy available in the electrical current of a circuit. Voltage
controls the available electrical power (wattage).
Amperes
An amp is the unit used to measure electrical current as it flows past a specified point.
Watts

A watt is the unit used to measure the amount of actual flowing electrical energy.
Volt-Amps

A volt-amp is the unit used to measure the apparent electrical power used by computing equipment.
Mathematically, it is expressed as volts times amps (V*A).
*Meter Mode ® is a unique function of all TnTGen4 & TnP Models.
Uses of Volt-Amp Measurement

Because it represents the amount of energy computing systems may draw from a power grid, the VA is
used to determine the kind of wiring and circuit breakers required to support the computing equipment in
question.
Watts and VA (Detailed Explanation)
The power drawn by equipment is expressed in Watts or Volt-Amps (VA). The power in Watts is the real power
drawn by the equipment. Volt-Amps are called the "apparent power" and are the product of the voltage applied
to the equipment times the current drawn by the equipment. Both Watt and VA ratings have a use and purpose.
The Watt rating determines the actual power purchased from the utility company and the heat loading generated
by the equipment
Safety Precautions
Make sure you have a clear and safe area when powering any equipment, remove any drills bits etc
before testing any equipment. Always read equipment compliance plates.
Disclaimer
Meter Mode is to be used for quick simple indicative electrical parameter measurements. Providing
reasonably accurate readings without the need to carry any other instruments. It is not intended to
replace specific, more accurate individual test equipment, nor is its purpose to replace prescribed
testing requirements. It in doubt please consult a qualified electrician when unsure or perform proper
test procedures.
