V. DESCRIPTION OF THE TESTER
A. The Tester is a portable unit provided with a removable cover in which associated cables and
probe are stored. Figure 1 shows the main panel and the location of the various controls and
operating parts.
B. The following controls and indicators are referred to throughout this manual and are listed below
in order to acquaint the operator of the Tester with their location and function.
1. The pushbuttons are arranged as follows:
a. The two power buttons, ON and OFF are on the left hand side above the AC power
connector.
b. The center four buttons are cursor keys (UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT) used to select
various functions of the unit.
c. There are two other buttons on the right hand side:

saying yes to any question it may be asking.
1
ii. CANCEL – This button is used to cancel what the Tester is currently doing. If the
Tester is asking you to acknowledge something, pressing CANCEL is how you say
no.
2. The AC power connector is used to power the unit as well as recharge the Tester’s internal
batteries.
3. The probe connector (the circular connector to the right of the cancel button) is used
to attach the pickup probe to the Tester.
4. The ID CHIP READER (DB15) connector is used to read the ID Chip from a tube
style transmitter.
5. The LCD display in the center of the Tester is 4 lines X 40 characters wide. It is used
to display various information about the operation of the Tester and the transmitter
under test.

Operating Procedures
I.
BASIC OPERATION
A. The Tester starts up at the primary data display shown in Figure 2. The Tester is now ready to
receive data from a nearby transmitter.
READY - ID: 0000 - 0:09 - 0 of 0
ID: 0000 FREQ: 0.0 FLAGS:
V1: 0 V2: 0 V3: 0 ANA1: 0 S: 0%
I1: 0 I2: 0 I3: 0 ANA2: 0 T: 0:00
Figure 2: Primary Data Display
C. As soon as the data is received the Tester will beep and immediately display what was received as
seen in Figure 3.
READY - ID: 0000 - 2:16 - 1 of 1
ID: 0123 FREQ: 50.0 FLAGS: A CD F HM
V1: 125 V2: 125 V3: 127 ANA1: 97 S: 97%
I1: 105 I2: 98 I3: 102 ANA2: 62 T: 1:51
Figure 3: Primary Data Display (One Packet Received)
1. The first line indicates the following information about the status of the Tester:
a. The Tester is ready to receive data
b. The Tester is waiting for a Transmitter with an ID equal to 0 (any transmitter)
c. Two minutes and sixteen seconds has elapsed since the box started waiting for data
d. The first packet out of a total of one (1 of 1) is currently being displayed
2. The second, third and fourth lines contain the information received from a transmitter
(NOTE: Not all of the following information will be available from all types of transmitters):
a. The ID of the transmitter (123)
b. The frequency of the received transmission (50.0 kHz)
c. The list of flags that are currently active (A, C, D, F, H, M)
d. The three phase voltages (125V, 125V, 127V)
e. The three phase current loadings in percent (105%, 98%, 102%)
f. The values of the two analog inputs (ANA1=97, ANA2=62)
g. The signal strength of the transmitter (97%) (NOTE: This value will vary significantly
depending on the position of the probe relative to the transmitter)
5
h. The time this particular packet of data was received (1:51) (NOTE: This value is relative
to the time displayed in line 1)
C. If another packet is received, the Tester will display the new data as shown in Figure 4.
READY - ID: 0000 - 4:12 - 2 of 2
ID: 0123 FREQ: 50.0 FLAGS: A C EF HM
V1: 125 V2: 124 V3: 126 ANA1: 94 S: 92%

1. To cycle through all the received data packets, use the UP and DOWN cursor keys.
a. If you have scrolled to another packet, and another transmission is received, the Tester
will beep, but continue to display the packet that has been selected. To quickly view the
newest data received simply press the ENTER button.
II. ADVANCED OPERATION
To access the additional functionality of the unit, simply press LEFT or RIGHT from the Primary
Data Display. This will cycle through the following menus (and back to the Primary Data Display).
A. Address Filter Setting (Figure 5)
This filter allows the Tester to receive data from only one unit, ignoring any nearby units that
may also be received. An address of 0000 will receive data from any unit.
1. If an address filter was not set at power up (or you wish to change the one you did set), you
can use this option to do it now. Press ENTER to access this function, and you will be taken
to the filter setup screen shown in Figure 6.
Set Address Filter?
(This will also clear the buffer)

Enter ID to Wait For: 0000
Figure 6: ID Entry Screen
a. Use the LEFT and RIGHT cursor keys to select which of the four digits you wish to
modify (The blinking cursor will more left and right).
b. Use the UP and DOWN cursor keys to increment and decrement the selected digit.

c. When you have set the value you desire, press ENTER to accept it.
d. If a mistake was made and you wish to discard any changes, press CANCEL.
2. Also note that setting the address filter will clear the Tester’s buffer of previously received data.
B. Contrast Adjustment (Figure 7)
This menu allows the operator to adjust the contrast of the display of optimum readability.
Contrast Adjust
UP Darker / Down Lighter
Enter to Save
