Explanation of terminology
7.1. Protection class I (PC I)
The active parts of the device are protected against direct
touching by the basic insulation.
Through connection of the touchable conductive housing parts to
the protective conductor, these are included in the protective
measure in the case of direct touching (fault protection) with the
system.
The device has a protective conductor connection (earthed plug).
7.2. Protection class II (PC II)
The active parts are separated by strengthened or double
insulation (basic insulation and additional insulation). This
ensures protection against direct contact.
Protection against indirect contact also exists, since an insulation
fault is practically impossible. Such devices can nevertheless
have touchable metallic housing parts. Devices of protection class
II have a mains plug without an earth contact.
7.3. Protection class III (PC III)
Devices of protection class III are exclusively connected to
protective extra-low voltage electric circuits.
The protection against dangerous body currents is achieved by
the low voltage and the safe separation from other electric
circuits.
7.4. Protective conductor resistance (RPE)
Resistance between any conductive touchable parts, connected
to the protective conductor for protective purposes, and the
earthed contact of the mains plug.
C
See also the measuring principle circuit under point 8.2.
7.5. Insulation resistance (RISO)
This is the Ohmic resistance between conductive parts separated
by insulation.
Measurements are taken between the active parts and the body
as well as touchable conductive parts that are not connected to
the protective conductor.
C
See also the measuring principle circuit under point 8.3.
BEHA-AMPROBE
14
Operating manual for the GT-400 appliance tester
7.6. Substitute leakage current (IEA)
Current that would flow through the interconnected active
conductors of the device (test object) and the protective
conductor or the touchable conductive parts at rated voltage and
rated frequency of the device.
This measuring method determines the leakage current without
mains voltage.
It is an alternative measuring method for determining protective
conductor current or touch current.
C
See also the measuring principle circuit under point 8.4.
7.7. Visual inspection
Testing in accordance with DIN VDE 0701-0702 requires a visual
inspection of the device. According to the standard, the devices
should be inspected for external defects (without opening the
device) and, as far as possible, for suitability to the place of
installation.
(More details are provided in the DIN VDE 0701-0702 standard).

- Substitute leakage current
C
Please note: The test object must be switched on.
The test sequence is started by pressing the „START“
button for < 2 s.
9.1.1. Measuring the protective conductor resistance
The protective conductor resistance is measured using a
measuring current > 200 mA DC. The direction of current is
automatically reversed by the tester.
Before measuring is started, a test is made to ascertain whether
a valid compensation of the test line has been conducted. If this
is not the case, the following message appears in the status line:
„A faulty zero calibration is shown. Please repeat the
compensation!“
BEHA-AMPROBE
19
Operating manual for the GT-400 appliance tester
The measurement can be aborted by pressing the „START“
button. The compensation must be repeated (section 6.2. „Test

- An audio signal is emitted
BEHA-AMPROBE
20
Operating manual for the GT-400 appliance tester
At the start of measuring, the tester checks to see if the
measuring current is greater than 200 mA. If this is not the case,
the test is aborted.
This can occur for the following reasons:
- The test object is not of protection class I
- The test object is not connected to the tester or the test
line is not connected
- The protective conductor has an open-circuit
This is indicated by a scrolling message in the status line.
The tester performs the following checks:
a) Check of the test wiring!
The measurement procedure is continued when the
missing connection to the test line or test object is
restored and the measuring current is > 200 mA.
b) Check that the appliance conforms to
protection class I!
If the tester detects that the appliance does not
conform to protection class I, then the test must be
aborted by pressing the „START“ button.
If the test wiring is „OK“ and the test object conforms to protection
class I, then the protective conductor connection has an opencircuit or high resistance. The test must be aborted by pressing
the „START“ button.
When the test is aborted, the assessment window is shown in the
display.
Measurement of the insulation resistance and substitute leakage
current is not performed.
This also applies when the measured protective conductor
resistance is > 1 Ω .
BEHA-AMPROBE

measurement, the automatic test sequence can also be switched
to a permanent measurement (max. 3 min).
When the tester is in the normal measuring mode, pressing the
„START“ button switches the tester into the permanent
measurement mode.
The bar graph is then no longer shown in the display.
Pressing the button again continues the measurement with a
reversed test current polarity. Pressing the button again ends the
protective current measurement and continues with the next
measurement in the measuring sequence.
During permanent measurement, the connecting cable of the test
object should be moved, section by section, along its whole
length, in order to find broken conductors or weak points. The
momentary measurement values are continuously acquired and
displayed by the tester. The maximum measurement value is
stored and displayed in the assessment window at the end of the
measuring sequence.
9.1.2. Measuring the insulation resistance

Calibrating the tester
According to the DIN VDE 0701-0702:2008-06 standards:
„Measuring devices used for testing must be regularly
checked and calibrated.“
We recommend a calibration interval of one year. Shorter periods
are recommended if the tester is frequently used or used under
tough conditions. If the tester is seldom used then the calibration
interval can be extended up to a maximum of 3 years.
