Multifunction Tester for Quartz

Multifunction Tester for Quartz
MSA 19.108
DESCRIPTION
Multifunction portable tester for analog
quartz watches and movements. Supplied
with 2 precision probes, 9V adaptor
(Input 220/110V AC - Output 9V DC), 9V
ALKALINE battery, instructions for use,
technical guide (movement consumption
and coil resistance values of popular
quartz movements).
CONNECTIONS
1. Open the battery cover located at
rear, and connect the 9 V battery.
2. Note that when apparatus is ON, you
have to change the 9V battery when
message “LOW BAT” blinks on LCD
display.
3. Connect AC adaptor power supply
cord to mains (220V or 110V).
Connect the 9V adaptor male plug
to rear jack. This action automatically
disconnects the 9V battery for daily
intensive use (watch repairers, aftersales services, quick battery change
shops, watch manufacturers).
4. Connect the 2 probes plugs to rear
(black plug in black terminal, red plug
in red terminal)
5. Upper part of apparatus is provided
with two black and red probe holders.
SPECIFICATIONS
Flashtest has capabilities to perform:
• WITHOUT OPENING THE WATCH,
QUICK TESTS of
• electronic watch part (battery,
electronic circuit, coil, step motor)
• mechanical part, by UNJAMING
wheels train, hands and calendar
parts
• Proceed to these tests when the
watch is:
• NEW, before sale
• REPAIRED, before to be returned
to customer
• DAMAGED, for a quotation before
repair
• BY OPENING THE WATCH,
ACCURATE TESTS of
• real battery status
• consumption of electronic circuit
• consumption of movement
• coil continuity
Tests performed with opened
watch are necessary to get precise
information on real status of vital
components.
REFER TO TECHNICAL GUIDE;
useful summary that lists consumption
and resistance values of popular
movements made by various watch
manufacturers, at common temperature
of 20° C. This guide does not replace last
updated technical documents published
by each manufacturer, that we highly
recommend.
PRESSURE BUTTONS
ON
• Pressed once
• Sets power ON
• Pressed continuously
• For testing or UNJAMING
mechanical part
OFF
• Pressed during 1/2 second :
• Sets power OFF
MUTE
• Pressed once
• Sets speaker sound OFF
Switch back to sound ON: first set power
OFF (button OFF), and then set again
power ON (button ON).
MENU
Press to select the desired function
• function BATT (battery test);
measures the battery voltage in Volts.
• function IC 1.5V, activates the 1. 5V
DC power supply, for measuring the
consumption in µA
• function 1C 3V, activates the 3V
DC power supply, for measuring the
consumption in µA.
• function COIL, measures the coil
resistance in kΩ
SIMUL
• When MENU is selected on BATT
function (battery test), the button
“SIMUL” simulates the real working
conditions of a watch battery, as the
various watch components act as a
LOAD. So we get information of the
real battery power reserve.
probe (-) and touch (-) battery side; read
the value on LCD display.
QUARTZ ANALOG WATCH
Place watch here to perform following
QUICK tests, without probes ***:
• 1. IMPULSE (receiver)
Detector receives pulses generated
by quartz movement and emits an
audible signal (BIP); the 4 diodes are
flashing:
• each second for watches with
sweep second hand
• each 5-10-20-30 or 60 seconds for
other types of watches.
Move watch on this zone to locate
where the best signal is received.
• 2. TURBO (transmitter)
Keep continuously button “ON” down
to generate a magnetic field for testing
or unjaming the wheel train.
Move the watch to locate the best
rotating effect.
ULTRA THIN PROBES
BLACK NEGATIVE (-)
RED POSITIVE (+)
To get accurate measurements, the
handle is coated and insulated with
synthetic rubber; they are fitted with very
thin precision tips, that make contact with
small watch components easier.
LCD DISPLAY
The extra large digits give quick and easy
readings; precision 1/100 of V, µA or kΩ.
*** Tests without probes and closed
watch case may not operate in some
conditions (watches equipped with
thick watch eases, stainless steel watch
cases, or with very low consumption
movements). When it occurs, open the
watch case.
SENSORS, PROBES, LCD

WATCH BATTERY TESTER
Zone only used for battery controls.
Before test, select MENU button on
BATT.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR
USE
We suggest you to proceed as follows
(illustrations refer to calibre ETA 955112)
A - Battery voltage
(1/100 of V)
• Measured with mounted genuine
battery
• Readings from 0 to 19.999 Volts.
• MENU Function BATT activated,
SIMUL button is not activated.
• No time limit during tests, thanks to
high internal resistance of 100 kΩ.
• To make sure that energy reaches
the watch electronic circuit.
but hands do not move, it means that
electronic part functions, mechanical
part is faulty; check or clean
mechanical parts (dust in wheels train,
hand that touch crystal or dial,...)
• When apparatus receives impulses
and watch does no longer function,
you can proceed to coil testing:
D – Coil continuity, to measure its
resistance (1/100 of kΩ)
• Readings from 0 to 19.999 kΩ
• Operating voltage of ohmeter is 0.2
V; voltage exceeding this value is
not convenient for getting correct
readings
• Coil must not receive power
supply from watch battery.
• Resistance readings give coil status:
• cut (resistance 0)
• in shortcut (resistance = 1)
• not suitable resistance
when value is different from
manufacturer; it generates
consumption in excess and
shortens battery life
• Compare with the technical
chart
C - Place the opened watch
or the movement on QUARTZ
ANALOG WATCH zone
• Keep in mind that some movements
generate one impulse per second, and
some other only every 5, 10, 20 or 30
seconds.***
• When apparatus receives impulses,
• WAIT 5 TO 10 SECONDS TO
GET STABLE AND CORRECT
READINGS
• Compare with the technical
chart
B - Voltage of battery at work
(1/100 of V)
• Take the battery out of the watch
(or to test a new battery before
replacement)
• We simulate the resistance of the
various watch components called
LOAD
• Readings from 0 to 19.999 Volts.
• Function BATT, press button SIMUL
during 1 to 2 seconds (the activated
internal resistance is 1 kΩ).
• Limit test duration to avoid watch
battery discharge, especially for “low
drain” or small size batteries.
• Place + positive side of watch battery
on + WATCH BATTERY zone, then
touch-side of battery with the - black
negative probe tip; finally, press
SIMUL shortly
• Check components located inside the
battery van, no trace of oxyde should
appear. Take rust away or exchange
oxyded parts.
• Do not touch battery with
fingers. Perspiration is a natural thing;
touching a battery forms a slim layer,
that will generate oxyde after some
months.
F - Movement consumption
(1/100 of microampere):
• Readings from 0 to 19.999 µA
• Take battery out of the watch
• Press winding stem completely
(activate all movement functions)
• Function IC 1.5V for 1.5V type
watches
• Function IC 3V for 3V type watches
• Do not select IC 3V function when
testing 1.5V. type watches
• The apparatus acts as a power supply
and shows the current consumption.
E - Consumption of
electronic circuit
(1/100 of microampere):
• Readings from 0 to 19.999 µA
• Pull the winding stem fully (in position
3. outwards)
• Take battery out of the watch
• Function IC 1.5V for 1.5V type
watches.
• Function IC 3V for 3V type watches.
• Do not select IC 3V function when
testing 1.5V type watches.
• The apparatus acts as a power supply
and shows the current consumption
• Compare with the technical
chart
• When consumption is nil, electronic
circuit is faulty; replace the electronic
circuit
• When consumption exceeds or
do not match with manufacturer
value, circuit is nearly end of life and;
replacement is recommended
• When consumption exceeds
manufacturer value, it might mean that
• Wheel train is dirty or faulty, it
increases friction and more energy
is needed to make wheels rotation;
clean, adjust or replace the train
wheels.
• The hands touch dial or glass, or
hands are not fitted correctly;
adjust, clean or replace hands.
