AC/DC voltage is detected. The symbol warns the operator that a
dangerous voltage is connected to the unit.
The tester and all associated cables and leads must be checked
for signs of damage before the equipment is operated.
Attention! During insulation resistance measurements and Class I
and Class II tests, high voltage levels occur within the
PrimeTest 200.
Do not exceed the maximum permitted voltage of 30 V AC/DC with
respect to earth potential when performing point to point test i.e.
Low resistance measuring function Ω and insulation resistance
measurement function MΩ! Electric shock danger!
Where safe operation of the tester is no longer possible, it should be
immediately shutdown and secured to prevent accidental operation.
It must be assumed that safe operation is no longer possible:
- if the instrument or the measuring leads show visible signs of damage, or
- the tester does not function, or
- after long periods of storage under adverse environmental conditions.
Important
- Do not touch the bare probe tips of the measuring leads.
- Ensure the measuring leads are plugged into the corresponding
sockets on the PrimeTest 200
i.e.
red lead - red socket - positive
black lead - black socket -negative.

button or switch action takes place the instrument automatically switches
itself on again.
5.6
When the PrimeTest 200 is switched on from power off position to
another switch position, an on load battery test occurs. The result of this
test determines the available battery capacity. A healthy battery results in
no battery symbol being illuminated on the LCD display. A
deteriorating battery results in the
symbol being illuminated in the
steady state. An unhealthy battery results in a flashing
symbol.
When the flashing
symbol is displayed all test and measurement
functions are inhibited to avoid endangering persons by recording
false measurements.
