Technical Information
Class 1 (Earthed Appliance) Construction
(Single basic insulated and protectively earth equipment)
This type of product design provides two safety barriers between all live conductors at dangerous voltages and the equipment
user.
The provision of basic insulation between exposed metal parts and live parts is the first barrier to provide basic protection
against electric shock.
The second safety barrier is by the connection of exposed (accessible) conductive (metal) parts to the protective earthing
conductor (earth wire) in the fixed wiring of the device/Installation.
The protective earthing terminal of the equipment must be marked with the word "earth" or the symbol "E" or the symbol for
Earth Terminal or Protective.
To perform this test, a continuous earth loop must be made between the exposed conductive material (metal) and the TnP
appliance tester. This is done by means of connecting the earth lead with the crocodile clip/probe attached to a GOOD earth
point (paint & coatings will not provide effective connections) and the DUT (Device Under Test) plugged into the TnP appliance
testers’ DUT socket. The Maximum allowable limit is less than1.0 (ohm).
Refer Page 7 on how to extend time to get a true earth connection (Unique Earth Bond Test Feature)
Class 2 (Double Insulated) Construction
(Double insulated equipment)
This method of construction employs two safety barriers comprising two layers of insulation between dangerous voltages
and the user of the equipment.
The first layer of insulation is formed around the live conductor and is termed ‘the Functional Insulation’.
The second layer of insulation is termed ‘the Supplementary Insulation’. In Class II equipment, protection against electric shock
does not rely on basic insulation only, but has additional supplementary insulation such as double insulation or reinforced
insulation provided, there being no reliance on precautions in the fixed wiring of installation.
Class II equipment is marked with the words "DOUBLE INSULATION" or the symbol
For double insulated under Safety Symbols:
Note 1 – Double Insulation is insulation comprising both basic and supplementary insulation.
Note 2 – Reinforced Insulation is a single insulation system with a degree of protection against electric shock, which is
equivalent to double insulation.
Testing of Electrical Equipment
Many testing personnel have some reservations in testing sensitive, electronic equipment using a 500V DC insulation test.
There is a perceived fear of causing internal damage from over voltage. With the introduction on the TnP Range of appliance
testers, these concerns are alleviated.
The TnP Range of electrical portable appliance testers is safe to test electronic equipment as the tests are carried from ActiveNeutral (shorted by a relay inside the tester) to Earth. No dangerous voltages pass through in this mode to the internal
7
Wavecom Instruments Fully Integrated Test N Print Unit - User Manual
components of the DUT (Device Under Test). If these tests are done using an Insulation Tester only and the user tests Active
to Neutral, this would be a cause of potential damage, this is why the TnP product range is far safer to use.
Some changes may be required in certain configurations where fitted surge protection devices (MOV's) in the DUT may cause
a failed test result. Applying 500V in this these situations can cause the surge protection devices to trip, therefore conducting
the applied voltage to earth, thus showing a failure of insulation. In these instances the test voltage should be changed to 250V
then retest. If DUT still fails, check with the DUT Operators Manual or an electrician. [for details see - ‘Double Insulation Test’
250/500VDC to change test voltage].
Under these circumstances, it would be difficult for any damage to occur to either the surge protection device or the DUT, as
there is insufficient current generated by the TnP test unit.
Leakage Test:
If there are any doubts with insulation testing of the equipment, the standard (AS/NZ3760 since 2001) allows for an alternative
test method. A Leakage Test can be performed instead. (The TnP – Series are designed to perform these tests).
NOTE: 10Amps MAXIMUM Resistive Load only (Standard TnP Series units).
A Leakage Test applies power to the Device Under Test (DUT) and measures the imbalance of leakage current from the DUT
between the active and neutral conductors. The leakage is tested to the limits specified in the standard and a Pass/Fail result
as well as a digital reading is provided to ensure that the user gains as much information as necessary.
Earth Continuity Test, commonly called EARTH BOND TEST:
Note: Part of normal (Class 1 test) procedure
Use supplied IEC–Croc clip lead or optional accessory ‘WCM-Probe kit’.
The TnP.500 unit conducts earth continuity tests at Approx. 200mA. Continuity tests at higher currents are not required or
recommended on certain equipment as this may cause severe damage or premature failure to the Device under test (see
AS/NZS 3760:2010).
Unique Earth Bond Test Feature
Note: Test time with the new TnP-500 series can now be user controlled. This function enables testing personnel to extend
the Earth Bond test time by 30 second increments!
This is achieved by momentarily pushing the ENTER
button once, during the test.
The TnP-500 will then add 30 seconds to the test time for ENTER button press.
This feature has been incorporated to provide extra time to achieve an adequate physical connection, or confirm any possible
INTERMITTENT issues. There may be situations where the condition of equipment, coatings applied, or suspect wiring breaks
may alter the earth connection path of the device under test.
Benefit to test personnel is to save time by not having to continually repeat tests in a less than perfect situation.
3 Phase Testing: *Optional equipment required
3 Phase appliances can be tested by the TnP series appliance testers. As the insulation tests are from Phase to Earth, only a
500V insulation test is required. This test may be carried out by using the optional adaptor ‘WCM-3PH-MADP’ [See ‘Optional
Accessories’ for details.]
Note: The TnP500 series will not perform a 3 Phase Leakage test.
Contact Wavecom Instruments Pty Ltd for information on appropriate testers.
Switching between 250V & 500V Test
To change the test voltages, when in Main Menu A; Press Enter and F2 together to enter in settings. Select “Change
Insulation Vol” and press enter. Select either 250V or 500V.
Please note, TnP starts default to 500VDC, and will revert back to that when restarted.

Integrated Tests
Supply Mains Test [Not available in Battery Mode of TnPB Series]
The Supply Mains Test checks the polarity and connectivity of the mains supply by LED's. This test is also a part of all the
testing functions of this unit.
If the N-E (red) light is on and you need to conduct load/leakage tests DO NOT CONTINUE. If you are
carrying out standard Insulation and Earth Bond tests, it is generally safe to continue. This light will glow
if a voltage difference lies between the neutral and the earth, or if no earth is connected to the TnP- Series
supply. (If working with a generator or inverter, this is most likely to occur and you may need to consult
an electrician before proceeding).
If both the A-E & A-N (green) lights are on but not the N-E (red), mains supply test is ok, continue to test.
ALL GOOD !!
If both of the N-E (red) & A-E (green) lights are on, consult an Electrician, as there is a fault with the Mains
Supply.
Note: While in Battery mode, all LEDs will be off as no mains connected and supply mains test is not
carried out.
NCNT Test
(No Connection No Test)
The TnP – Series appliance testers ensure that the appliance is plugged in and switched on. This test is also a part of all of the
testing functions of this unit.
This test function ensures that the appliance is plugged into the TnP appliance tester and that it is switched on. If the device is
not plugged in and the TnP appliance tester detects that no device is present, plug in to continue the test or confirm ‘QUIT’ to
return to the main menu.
If for some reason the NCNT circuit does not detect the device but it is actually plugged in and turned on, the operator will
need to override the NCNT function.
To do this Over Ride Press F3
(Done with User Discretion)
With an emphasis in the Standard AS/NZ3760:2010 for carrying out the live testing the TnP - Series appliance testers will
indicate for you to check if the device is plugged in and switched on. If the device is not plugged in and/or recognised, it may
require a live test therefore making it necessary for the operator to carry out a full functional Leakage Test (Available on all
models of TnP – Series).
This function is to ensure that correct testing procedures are carried out in accordance with the Standard AS/NZ3760:2010.
*Optional
Note: When using 3-Phase adaptors the NCNT function will need to be over ridden by pressing the ‘OK’ key prior to the TnP
appliance tester performing the assigned test. Some single-Phase appliances controlled by contactors will also require manual
over ride. In some instances, holding the ‘ON’ button will enable the NCNT function to work normally.

The TnP units have Memory. There is an inbuilt flash memory and a real-time clock. This gives the ability to store
up to 5,000 records, which can include items from 16 different sites and 6 different users. This will help to increase
the efficiency and pace of testing. The TnP units (with memory) have two operating modes:
•
•
TnP tester mode only, no peripherals (Keyboard, Scanner or Printer) connected
Test and Tag / TnT mode, all devices connected & on, allowing testing, scanning, retrieval & printing
The TnT mode is determined if a keyboard is connected. If there is no keypad / scanner detected, then the TnP will
start in tester mode by default, taking to Main Menu A. If the keypad & scanner are present, then the new barcode
screen will be loaded, in TnT mode.
CAUTION: All peripherals are supposed to be connected when unit is turned on. If keyboard / scanner were not
plugged in when unit turned on in TnT mode, tester will not connect to keyboard / scanner as “ Active / Hot
connection”. Please connect all peripherals, and turn off the unit. Restart the unit, once all connected.
Test n Tag Mode / Memory Mode
TnP500 starts in memory mode by default. Keyboard, scanner and printer are all integrated in this mode to
aid user to create / save equipment & sites with relevant details into on board memory. Test results are
saved and tags are printed at the end of test. Tags can also be reprinted from memory.
The test sequence starts with option of creating a barcode or searching a barcode from the memory. A site
and user has to be added before testing can be done.
Adding New Equipment
The following must be done before testing:
•

RCD Leakage
Please Note: A Visual Inspection test must be carried out before any others (refer to First Test Section)
This test determines errors of leakage not otherwise detected in a normal insulation test. If there are any doubts with
insulation testing of the equipment, the Standard (AS/NZS 3760 since 2001) allows for a leakage test to be carried out instead.
The TNP- Series appliance testers have been designed to perform these tests. The Leakage Test applies power to the Device
Under Test and measures any imbalance or leakage current. The leakage is tested to the limits of the class types specified in
the Standard AS/NZS 3760 i.e. Class 1 = > 5mA as Fail.
The Limit of imbalance measured on the TnT-+ M, appliance tester will read well in excess of the limits set in mA. However,
should the supply circuit be protected by an RCD this device will trip anywhere between 10 to 30mA and trip the mains supply
switch OFF.

RCD Test – Time Test / Ramp Test– Menu B – F3
Please Note: when any RCD testing is to be carried out on any circuit that is protected by an RCD in the main switchboard
(upstream), it’s most likely to trip this upstream RCD. When performing RCD trip time or Ramp current tests on any (portable)
RCD devices, the RCD in the switchboard may trip faster. This is due to increased upstream levels of leakage current from
the additional circuits and devices connected to it. The fixed RCD’s can also have better connectivity, sensitivity and
mechanical mechanisms.
To avoid tripping large areas in the work place monitored by the switchboard RCD it is suggested that an RCD (Isolation
Transformer) be used. These are designed specifically for the purposes of field RCD tripping.
DO NOT use these Transformers for any other purpose. Ratings 240VAC in 240VAC Out @ 30VA Fuse protected Primary
winding 500mA
To perform RCD tests the TnP supply lead needs to be plugged in to the RCD device to be trip tested. For tripping switchboard

Caution: Pressing F3 at this point will cause tripping if RCD fitted to circuit
RAMP CURRENT TEST. This testing principal is designed to trip RCD devices using a ramping up current value, to determine
the trip current of the RCD device. This useful test allows the user to determine circuit leakage load/pre-loading of RCD
circuit. This can assist in determining nuisance tripping issues (RCD is too sensitive) or determining RCD performance if
suspected faulty or inconsistent in performance. The TnP has a nominal leakage current of 2mA, which should be added to
the result of test. E.g. if RCD tripped at 22mA + 2mA(TnT RCD)=24mA trip current.
RCD Trip Current. Press F2 to show the Trip current screen.
Caution: Pressing F3 at the RCD ramp test screen will cause tripping if RCD fitted to circuit. F2 can be pressed to change the
RCD type at this point. See "Changing the RCD type" for details.
The Trip Current Test will ramp the mA current up until the RCD breaker trips. Current range 2.55 - 500mA. This test can go
for up to 10 sec to scroll through full range if RCD faulty or not fitted. Repeated testing in this mode will cause heating of TnP.
Should over heating occur the internal temperature sensor will cause display to indicate “over temp allow to cool” This requires
the TnP device to be best left unplugged for several minutes allowing unit to cool.
[All TnP Models except TnPB series] TnP will display results for 5 seconds after mains supply is tripped, using small internal
300mAh battery. If the power is not reset by the time unit loses power, then the result will be displayed when power is back
on. Once power is back on by resetting the RCD, option to continue (Enter) or re-test (F3) will come on the tester. Pressing
enter / continue, Tag will be printed.
In TnP 500 Battery series, even after RCD trips, tester runs from battery and lets user print the Tag. In case of Portable RCD,
mains power stays on and user can perform any number of PRCD as User desires. For testing main boards / fixed / wall RCD,
once RCD trips off and cuts power to the unit, user can still print the tag and do other required things on battery backup. To
re-test the RCD, user have to re-set the RCD to provide mains power back to unit.

Electrical Parameters from a Power outlet source or from the appliance under test.
Typical Applications
Example.: Measuring the Power of a bar heater, or electric power drill check the ratings and compare them to that
on the compliance plate etc. Quick test of Power outlet Voltages in rooms or locations split from multiple circuits.
30
Wavecom Instruments Fully Integrated Test N Print Unit - User Manual
Meter Mode Features – (Four Discrete Options)
Electrical parameters are displayed as Volts, Amps, Watts, and Volt / Amps
These electrical parameters will be displayed on the Testers main screen display. Select from the 4 Test available
in Meter Mode.
Meter Mode Measures and displays volts in AC, Current in Amps, Power Measurement in Watts and VA in Volt/AMPS
Explanation of Electrical Parameters
Volts
•
A volt is the unit used to measure the energy available in the electrical current of a circuit. Voltage controls the
available electrical power (wattage).
Amperes
An amp is the unit used to measure electrical current as it flows past a specified point.
Watts
•
A watt is the unit used to measure the amount of actual flowing electrical energy.
Volt-Amps
•
A volt-amp is the unit used to measure the apparent electrical power used by computing equipment. Mathematically,
it is expressed as volts times amps (V*A).
*Meter Mode ® is a unique function of all TnP-500 + Gen 4 Models.
Uses of Volt-Amp Measurement
•
Because it represents the amount of energy computing systems may draw from a power grid, the VA is used to
determine the kind of wiring and circuit breakers required to support the computing equipment in question.
Watts and VA (Detailed Explanation)
The power drawn by equipment is expressed in Watts or Volt-Amps (VA). The power in Watts is the real power drawn by the
equipment. Volt-Amps are called the "apparent power" and are the product of the voltage applied to the equipment times the
current drawn by the equipment. Both Watt and VA ratings have a use and purpose. The Watt rating determines the actual
power purchased from the utility company and the heat loading generated by the equipment
Safety Precautions
Make sure you have a clear and safe area when powering any equipment, remove any drills bits etc before testing any
equipment. Always read equipment compliance plates.
Disclaimer
Meter Mode is to be used for quick simple indicative electrical parameter measurements. Providing reasonably accurate
readings without the need to carry any other instruments. It is not intended to replace specific, more accurate individual test
equipment, nor is its purpose to replace prescribed testing requirements. It in doubt please consult a qualified electrician when
unsure or perform proper test procedures.

Notes:
✓ The battery may not be full charged for shipment and will require a complete charge before first use. Make
sure the scanner is correctly installed on the dock; connect the tester to mains power and scanner battery
will start charging automatically.
✓ The scanner LED will be flashing RED while charging and will turn OFF when the charging process is
complete. If a charging error occurs the scanner LED will stay solid RED.
✓ It takes approximately 3 hours for the battery to become fully charged.
✓ Battery charging stops when the temperature drops below Oᴼ C or exceeds 40ᴼC. It is recommended to
charge the battery at room temperature (18ᴼC to 25ᴼC) for optimal performance.
✓ When the scanner battery is fully charged remove the scanner from the stand and hold down the trigger
for approximately 2-3 seconds to turn the scanner ON. The scanner will respond with a long beep and its
LED will turn ON and OFF shortly.
✓ To turn OFF the scanner in an emergency, remove the battery. Scanner will turn off automatically if idle for
10 minutes.
✓ When the battery charge becomes low the scanner will be unable to emit the scan beam and its poweron-beep will sound different to normal.
✓ Pairing: - In some cases where the 1560/62 BT has been programmatically reconfigured it may be necessary
to re-pair (bind) the 1560/62 BT unit with the communication stand.
Pairing (sometimes refereed to binding) is the process of respectively scanning both the “Set Connection”
bar code and the “Serial No” bar code located on the communication stand using the associated 1560/62
scanner unit. A rapidly flashing blue light on the communication stand will indicate successful pairing.
The barcode reader is now ready to use, simply open the application that you require to capture the bar code data
and start scanning. For windows users, an ideal application to test the scanner is “Notepad”, a small editor
program located among Windows accessories.
Once paired, 1560/62 scanner will automatically try to establish a connection with the communication stand, each
time its powered on.
