600B User's Manual
 Model: 600B SLA Battery Capacity Analyzer USER MANUAL Safety Summary The following safety precautions apply to both operating and maintenance personnel and must be followed during all phases of operation, service, and repair of this instrument. Before applying power to this instrument: • Read and understand the safety and operational information in this manual. • Apply all the listed safety precautions. • Verify that the voltage selector at the line power cord input is set to the correct line voltage. Operating the instrument at an incorrect line voltage will void the warranty. • Make all connections to the instrument before applying power. • Do not operate the instrument in ways not specified by this manual or by B&K Precision. Failure to comply with these precautions or with warnings elsewhere in this manual violates the safety standards of design, manufacture, and intended use of the instrument. B&K Precision assumes no liability for a customer’s failure to comply with these requirements. Category rating The IEC 61010 standard defines safety category ratings that specify the amount of electrical energy available and the voltage impulses that may occur on electrical conductors associated with these category ratings. The category rating is a Roman numeral of I, II, III, or IV. This rating is also accompanied 2 by a maximum voltage of the circuit to be tested, which defines the voltage impulses expected and required insulation clearances. These categories are: Category I (CAT I): Measurement instruments whose measurement inputs are not intended to be connected to the mains supply. The voltages in the environment are typically derived from a limited-­‐
energy transformer or a battery. Category II (CAT II): Measurement instruments whose measurement inputs are meant to be connected to the mains supply at a standard wall outlet or similar sources. Example measurement environments are portable tools and household appliances. Category III (CAT III): Measurement instruments whose measurement inputs are meant to be connected to the mains installation of a building. Examples are measurements inside a building's circuit breaker panel or the wiring of permanently-­‐installed motors. Category IV (CAT IV): Measurement instruments whose measurement inputs are meant to be connected to the primary power entering a building or other outdoor wiring. Do not use this instrument in an electrical environment with a higher category rating than what is specified in this manual for this instrument. 3 You must ensure that each accessory you use with this instrument has a category rating equal to or higher than the instrument's category rating to maintain the instrument's category rating. Failure to do so will lower the category rating of the measuring system. Do not operate in an explosive or flammable atmosphere Do not operate the instrument in the presence of flammable gases or vapors, fumes, or finely-­‐divided particulates. The instrument is designed to be used in office-­‐type indoor environments. Do not operate the instrument • In the presence of noxious, corrosive, or flammable fumes, gases, vapors, chemicals, or finely-­‐
divided particulates. • In relative humidity conditions outside the instrument's specifications. • In environments where there is a danger of any liquid being spilled on the instrument or where any liquid can condense on the instrument. • In air temperatures exceeding the specified operating temperatures. • In atmospheric pressures outside the specified altitude limits or where the surrounding gas is not air. 4 • In environments with restricted cooling air flow, even if the air temperatures are within specifications. • In direct sunlight. This instrument is intended to be used in an indoor pollution degree 2 environment. The operating temperature range is 0 °C to 40 °C and the operating humidity range is ≤ 95% relative humidity with no condensation allowed. Measurements made by this instrument may be outside specifications if the instrument is used in non-­‐

Such environments may include rapid temperature or humidity changes, sunlight, vibration and/or mechanical shocks, acoustic noise, electrical noise, strong electric fields, or strong magnetic fields. Do not operate instrument if damaged If the instrument is damaged, appears to be damaged, or if any liquid, chemical, or other material gets on or inside the instrument, remove the instrument's power cord, remove the instrument from service, label it as not to be operated, and return the instrument to B&K Precision for repair. Notify B&K Precision of the nature of any contamination of the instrument. Clean the instrument only as instructed 5 Do not clean the instrument, its switches, or its terminals with contact cleaners, abrasives, lubricants, solvents, acids/bases, or other such chemicals. Clean the instrument only with a clean dry lint-­‐free cloth or as instructed in this manual. Not for critical applications This instrument is not authorized for use in contact with the human body or for use as a component in a life-­‐support device or system. Do not touch live circuits Instrument covers must not be removed by operating personnel. Component replacement and internal adjustments must be made by qualified service-­‐trained maintenance personnel who are aware of the hazards involved when the instrument's covers and shields are removed. Under certain conditions, even with the power cord removed, dangerous voltages may exist when the covers are removed. To avoid injuries, always disconnect the power cord from the instrument, disconnect all other connections (for example, test leads, computer interface cables, etc.), discharge all circuits, and verify there are no hazardous voltages present on any conductors by measurements with a properly-­‐operating voltage-­‐
sensing device before touching any internal parts. Verify the voltage-­‐sensing device is working properly before and after making the measurements by testing with known-­‐operating voltage sources and test for both DC and AC voltages. Do not attempt any service or adjustment unless another person capable of rendering first aid and resuscitation is present. Do not insert any object into an instrument's ventilation openings or other openings. 6 Servicing Do not substitute parts that are not approved by B&K Precision or modify this instrument. Return the instrument to B&K Precision for service and repair to ensure that safety and performance features are maintained.
