Chapter 1 safety rules
Note: please read the items of this chapter before testing the high voltage.
1.Common safe rules
Before using it, please know about the safety signs of the withstanding voltage tester.
Before switching on the power, please check to be sure whether the input voltage is right in
comparison with the sign.
1---The warning sign of the high voltage. In order to avoiding the damage to the tester and injury to
the user, please read the warnings and rules in the manual.
2---The danger sign. There may be the high voltage. Please do not touch it.
3---The ground sign.
The voltage and the current caused by the withstanding voltage tester are too high enough to
hurt people. In order to avoiding the injury and the death, please first check it carefully when
moving and using it.
2. Maintenance
(1) User’s maintenance
In order to avoid an electric shock, please don't take apart the tester. The user mustn’t repair
all of the components in the tester. If the tester doesn’t work well, please put in touch with
Meteronic or the appointed distributors and agents.
(2) Periodic maintenance
According to the working frequency band, the input power cord, the P-wire, the correlative
accessories and so on of the withstanding voltage tester need to be checked and examined carefully
in period, which can protect the user and the accuracy of the tester.
(3) Modification of the user
The user mustn’t modify the circuit and the components inside. If you did, the warrant of the
tester is invalid, and my company doesn’t take the rap. The warrant is invalid either if you use the

User manual
components and the accessories which are not accepted by Meteronic. If the reprocessed product
has already been modified, we will charge the maintenance costs and we will resume our design.
3. The working platform of testing
(1) Which situations are the best for the worktable?
It is important to select a suitable position for the worktable. So the place should be which the
persons accept the operator far away from. If there is no place like that, you must isolate the
worktable with the other instruments and mark it “Testing High Voltage Field”. If the worktable is
near other worktables, please mark “Danger! High voltage is being tested! Don’t stay nearby!”
(2) The input power supply
A good ground is a vital part of the withstanding voltage tester. There is a ground interface in
its back panel. Please check to be sure the ground connection has continuity. The tester must have
the independent switch fixed in well-marked position, and the function of the switch must be
marked. Once the emergency happened, cut off the power source at once, and then do with matter.
The input power of the tester is designed to be used on AC only. Its range is 220v±10%. The
frequency of the power is 50HZ. If the power in its range is instable, it maybe does harm to the
components inside or cause the tester wrong running.
Note: The fuse in the tester must be a rapid melting model.
(3) The working test board
When tested, the tester must be placed on the worktable, which is the non-conductor. Don’t use
the conductor between the operator and the tested device. The position of the operator is
appropriate. Don’t stride the tested device to operate or adjust the tester.
When operating the tester, the testing working field and around it don’t contain fuel gas or the
inflammable matter which can cause the explosion and fire hazard.
(4) Operator
The electric shock can cause the injury even death to the user when the wrong operation has
been done. So it is important to train the suitable staff to use and operate the tester. The clothes of
the operator mustn’t contain the metal. And don’t wear the metal, either such as the watch, i.e...
The persons who have the heart disease or carries the rate adjuster mustn’t operate the tester.
(5) The essential point of safety
The operator who is not fit for the job and the person who is incoherent with the job must
far away from the test field.
Keep the test field in order and in safety at any time.
Note: Don’t touch the tested device or the devices, which are connected with it when testing.
Once any problems to the tester turned up, please cut off the high voltage output and input
After testing, please discharge first, and then remove the P-wire.

2. The tester is in the testing state
When the tester is running in the testing state, the P-wire, the tested device, the test probe and
the output port all carry the high voltage. Please don’t touch!
3. Changing the tested device
After finishing testing, when you change another tested device, please check to be sure:
The tester is in the reset state.
The test light is not flicking.
The figure of the voltage in the liquid-crystal display is not changing.
Especially notice: Don’t touch the high voltage probe when changing the tested device.
4. Switch on or off the power switch
Once the power is cut off, please wait for a minute if you want to start it once more.
Caution: It is very dangerous in the high voltage output state to change the power state, “on”
or “off”, continuously. It also do harm to the tester.
Don’t join the output port of the high voltage with any things when switching on or off the
power for it maybe cause the abnormal high voltage output which is very hazard.
5. Emergency treatment
In order to avoiding the more loss, please do according to the following way under any
emergent conditions such as an electric shock, the burning of the tested device or the host:
First cut off the power.
Then unplug the plug of the power.

Chapter 3 Brief Introduction
The withstand voltage tester is an instrument applied to measure the density of withstanding
voltage. It can visually, accurately, quickly and reliably tests the breakdown voltage, drain current
and other electrical security performance indices of various measured objects, and can act as DC
(AC) high voltage power supply to test the performance of components and the complete
instrument. The CS2600 withstand voltage tester product series is designed according to the
requirement of international and domestic security standards such as IEC, ISO, BS, UL, JIS and etc.
Its withstanding voltage is 3kV to 50kV, and drain current is 0 to 200 mA, which the special
requirement is determined in addition. This instrument is suitable for all kinds of white goods,
power supply, cables, transformers, connecting terminals, high-voltage Bakelite electrical
appliances, switches, outlets and plugs, motors, dishwashers, washing machines, centrifugal driers,
microwave ovens, electromagnetic machines, electronic ovens, electric firepot, electric rice
cookers, TV sets, electric fanners, medical services, chemical engineering, electronic instruments,
meters, complete machines and etc, and applied to provide the security withstand voltage
protection for a strong electricity system and to test the drain current. It is also an indispensable
withstand voltage experiment device for scientific research laboratories and technical supervision
The CS2600 series products of withstand voltage testers, based on introducing and
digesting the advanced withstand voltage testers worldwide, combine with a large number of
practical usage cases from Chinese users to enhance and improve. CS2670AX type, etc withstand
voltage testers are full digital model withstand voltage tester series products latterly developed by
our factory. Both the testing voltage and the drain current dwell time are displayed in digital,
which the technique is the first applied in China. Based on the original products, its performance is
further improved. The drain current can be continuously and optionally set from 0.1 mA to 100 mA
according to the different security standards and the different requirements of users. For the time
testing, the disadvantage, which the indication difference of the original product is a few greater, is
improved, with the digital count-down-display, the precision of dwell time is increased to above
±1%, and the testing range is improved to 99 s. Its function is richer and more practical, and the
actual drain current values of the measured object can be reflected through the drain current
display to achieve which products its withstand voltage grade is better compared with the different
lots of the similar products or different manufacturers’ products, which the security performance of
your products can be guaranteed to have no fault. At the same time, the digital displayed drain
current can be used to simultaneously display its function, and extended to measure the reverse
voltage and reverse drain current of the high voltage silicon rectifier stack, the reserve voltage and
reserve drain current of the high withstand voltage tube of a dynatron. It is a domestic leading
withstand voltage tester compared from technique performance to quality, reliability.

Chapter 4 Working theory
Withstand Voltage tester is made up of high voltage rise circuit, leakage current detecting
circuit and indicating meter. High voltage rise circuit can calibrate and output the required test
voltage; Leakage current is capable of setting breakdown(protection) current; Indicating meter
can directly read out the test voltage value and leakage current value( or set breakdown current
value). DUT reaches the regulated time under the effect of test voltage, and instrument cuts off
test voltage automatically or manually, once breakdown appears and leakage current goes beyond
the set breakdown current, instrument can automatically cut off the output voltage and alert to
confirm whether DUT can bear the insulation intensity test.
