2 GENERAL
2.1 FST-130
The protective earth conductor tester or also called ground bond tester is intended for measuring of protective earth conductor resistance or other low resistances of the device under
test (D.U.T.). The test can be carried out either by 10A or 25A current.
ANY UNAUTHORIZED OPEING OF THE EQUIPMENT WILL VOID THE WARRANTY.
2.2 FST-130 control modes
The FST-130 can be controlled either locally by means of the front panel buttons, indicators
and analogue meter or in automatic test systems by a computer. Other remote control possibilities exist by using the D25 connector in the back panel.
2.3 Calibration
The FST-130 is factory tested and calibrated to meet the accuracy requirements. We recommend to calibrate FST-130 regularly once a year. The equipment may be calibrated in our
factory or by other means agreed separately. In the back of the equipment is a replaceable
measurement module, which can be sent to calibration.

3 SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
3.1 General
The operator should study carefully the instruction manuals and operation of the FST-130 as
well as testing instructions for the product to be tested before starting any tests. As a further
safety precaution the operator should be aware of emergency first aid actions. The FST-130
shall only be used strictly according to this user manual. All modifications are not allowed.
3.2 High Current WARNING
The rear panel test connectors have low voltage during the test but due to high current there
may occur some sparking in the test connectors. Also care must be taken of heating of the test
leads caused by high currents. Therefore use sufficient cable cross section size for test leads.
They can be ordered also as an option from Finero.
The FST-130 measures the current in the circuit and shall switch the voltage off if the current
exceeds the set current limit, THIS FEATURE CANNOT BE USED AS A SAFETY MEASURE!
NEVER TOUCH THE CONNECTORS OR TEST LEADS IF THE FST-130 IS SWITCHED ON!

4 INSTALLATION
4.1 General
FST-130’s depth is about 370mm and connectors need about 150mm space from rear. The
handles mounted on the front panel are elevated about 40mm from the panel. The FST-130 is
not allowed to be carried from the front panel handles. For carrying FST-130 the handles on
the side of the equipment should be used.
The FST-130 can be used in its own case only in dry and clean environment. The ventilation,
however, should not be prevented.
4.2 Mounting into 19” Module –Rack or Case
When installed into a rack or a similar case it is mandatory to use mounting rails due to the
weight of the device. The holes in the front panel are intended for locking the device in its
place not for backing the whole device. If there are legs below of FST-130, they must take off
before installation to 19” rack. Care must be taken of the air circulation in the rack in order to
avoid temperature rise above +35 °C.
Here are some examples of how build the support for rack installation.

4.3 Connecting to the D.U.T.
There are 4pcs of 4mm sockets are in the back panel. The connections to the D.U.T. are made
according to the below figure.
It is possible to use only 2 wires by compromising on measurement accuracy. So Finero
recommends to use only 4-wire measurement method.
4.5 Mains supply and Switching On the FST-130
Connect the FST-130 to the mains supply in following order:
- Check that the position of the front panel POWER switch is 0.
- Connect the control and high voltage cables to the FST-130.
- Plug the mains cord to the FST-130.
- Plug the mains cord to a mains outlet
- Switch ON the FST-130

7 OPERATION WITH COMPUTER
7.1 General
The FST-130 can be incorporated in an automatic test system providing automatic control
and recording of the test results and other applications. Almost all operations are controlled
by the computer or easier by using a Finero’s specific proprietary application program
Safetest. The command list for computer operation mode is appendix of this manual. The
control interface, like USB, GPIB, RS232 or Ethernet, is optional and it must be ordered separately factory installed.
All FST-line equipments are delivered standard with RS485 interface. By using this interface
all FST-line equipments can communicate with each other.
7.2 Connections
The RS485 connection to other FST-130 must be done by a shielded Cat5 cable (STP) RJ45 (8
pin connector).
Other computer interfaces like USB, GPIB, RS232 and Ethernet, are connected with commercially available and compatible cables. The cables are not part of the delivery scope.

8 REMOTE CONTROL AND LOGIC OPERATION
8.1 General
This means a possibility to incorporate the FST-130 in less sophisticated automatic test
systems. The FST-130 operates as in the manual mode but has a provision for extra output
contacts for indicators and logic inputs for the control buttons.
8.2 Start-up
Basically the FST-130 will be put into operation as in manual mode. In addition the wiring of
the operator connector at the rear is to be done. The connector is a 25-pin D-type female
connector. In the main circuit diagram connections of the D25 connector are explained.
Maximum output from +25V are 300mA (7,5W).
8.3 Logic Connections
Contacts are available to show state of test and test result. It also has two additional programmable outputs.
“Test On” output is on, when voltage is on.
“Fail” output is on, when test current is higher than limit value. At the same time the test is
interrupted.
The connector has logic inputs like the start and stop buttons. It also has two additional
programmable inputs.
“Start” signal switches the test voltage on.
“Stop” signal disconnects the test voltage.
The connector has inputs for the safety circuit, if circuit is open high voltage is not connected.
Please see the main circuit diagram for these connections.

11 FAULT FINDING

No indicator is lit


Check the power cord connectors are
properly plugged at both ends
Check the voltage in the mains socket.
Check the main fuses (F1 and F2) of
the FST-130. The fuses are located in
the fuse box below the power cord
connector. Check the fuse by a multimeter for conductivity and replace
with the similar one if necessary.
Indicators are lit but buttons don't func- 
tion

Check the safety circuit
Check set values in “Setting” menu.
FST-130 functions but high voltage is 
missing or voltage output is wrong
Possibly the temperature switch
inside the unit transformer has caused the
equipment to stop
Wait for a moment and try again
If this occurs several times please
contact Finero Service


If the above remedies do not remove the problem, please contact the Finero Service or Finero
authorized service point.

Tester commands, specification and examples:
PCT
All next commands are use to FST-130 tester (pct- tester).
Example:
PCT;VOLT 12;CURR 10;ON
VOLTage m
m= test voltage
Setting test maximum voltage (6 / 12V).
Examples:
VOLT 6
VOLT 12
CURRent m
m= current range
Command to pct tester and
test voltage are max 12V and
current 10A, tester start
Test voltage 6V
Test voltage 12V
Setting measuring current range (10 / 25A).
Examples:
CURR 10
CURR 25
Current range 10A
Current range 25A
RESistance:MAXimum m Setting resistance high limit value (0…500m). When resistance
are
m=resistance high limit
higher than limit, test stops automatically, fail indicator goes on
and some status bytes goes on. Bytes 1:1 and 2:0
Examples:
RES:MAX 150 Resistance high limit 150m
RES:MAX 400 Resistance high limit 400m
RESistance:MINimum m
m=resistance low limit
Setting resistance low limit value (0…500m). When resistance
are
lower than limit, test stops automatically, fail indicator goes on
and some status bytes goes on. Bytes 1:1 and 2:1
