Voltage Measurement
5.1 Voltage Measurement
AC voltage is displayed in the large result field
(12), frequency in the small result field (14).
Never apply voltages exceeding 440V AC/DC to
input sockets.
The instrument is equipped with an integrated
internal over voltage protection up to maximum 500 V AC/DC.
When switching on or changing to VAC/DC measurement range, „AC" is automatically selected.
5.1.1 AC Voltage and Frequency Measurement
Select measurement range „VAC/DC, f" by
means of measurement range selection switch
(32).
Connect mains connection cable or test lead to
the measurement instrument
Now connect the mains connection cable or the
L and N connections of the test leads to the UUT.
For DC voltage measurements, the
socket L1 polarity is positive (+), the
L2 polarity is negative (-).
If voltage exceeds 440V, „>440V" is displayed
in the large result field. Should this occur disconnect the test instrument from the EUT immediately.
If the frequency value is outside 10Hz ... 99,9Hz
range, „---„ is displayed in the small resultfield. This indication is also displayed on the
screen if the AC voltage is extremely low.
Measurement results may be stored by pressing the „Store" (27) key.

Low-Ohm Resistance Measurement
Prior to any resistance measurement it is possible to compensate test lead resistance (please refer to chapter 5.2.1)
Connect 2 test leads to the TELARIS 0100 plus
(sockets L1 and L2).
Plug test probes or crocodile clips onto the test
leads and connect the test leads to the
EUT.
Set measurement range selection switch (32) to
„LOW-Ω" measurement range.
If an external voltage is present, the instrument
displays Uext (5) and attention (1). The LowOhm resistance measurement is then blocked.
The symbol „Uext" (5) disappears if a second
measurement is started without foreign voltage present.
It is possible to store the measurement result
by pressing „Store" (27) key.
The instrument automatically remains in continuous measurement mode when pressing
the "Start" key (26). The measurement lasts
until the "Start” key (26) is released again.

Prior to any Resistance measurement, it must
be guaranteed that no installation parts to be
tested are live.
The measurement results can be falsified by
parallel connection of impedances of additional service circuits or by compensating currents.
RINS, LowΩ
5.2 Low-Ohm Resistance Measurement
This measurement is used to check protective earth
conductors, grounding conductors, and equipotential bonding conductors for low-impedance continuity. The resistance is determined by current/voltage measurement.
Press the "Start" (26) key. During the measurement the display shows "-”.
Read measurement value on display.
If „>1999 Ω" appears on the display, the resistance is higher than 1999 Ohm.
The polarity of the test current applied may influence the measurement result by means of
galvanic elements within the EUT. For this reason always repeat the measurement with reversed polarity to compare the measurement
results.
11
Compensating Test Lead Resistance
5.2.1 Compensating Test Lead Resistance
TELARIS 0100 plus allows for compensation of test
lead resistance. The test lead resistance may
amount up to 1,99Ω. Proceed as follows:
Connect 2 test leads to the TELARIS 0100 plus
(sockets L1 and L2). Connect any measurement
accessories used to measurement connections
L and N.
Short-circuit both test leads U+ and U-.
Set measurement range selection switch (32) to
„LOW-Ω" measurement range.
Press „COMP" (22) key.
To clear the compensation value, please press
the "COMP” key (22) again.
12
RINS, LowΩ
The compensation value is maintained even
after switching the instrument off.
VAC/DC
If the test lead resistance has been properly
compensated for, the symbol „COMP" (15) and
the value 0.00 Ohm appears on the display. Furthermore, an acoustic signal is audible. If the
test lead resistance exceeds 1,99 Ohm, the
symbol „COMP" (15) blinks twice and the error
signal is audible.
Insulation Measurement
5.3 Insulation Measurement
For electrical installations the insulation measurement has to be carried out prior to final commissioning. This measurement is of basic importance
as the insulation measurement is considered to be
the only measurement for fire protection. If, due to
an insulation error, a limited fault current flows between two conductors, this leads to a heating up or
even to a fire. Only the insulation measurement procedure can detect such a fault.

According to IEC 60364 (DIN VDE 0100 Part 610)
the insulation resistance measurement is carried
out:
• from all phase conductors (e.g. L1, L2, L3) towards earth or to protective earth (PE)
• between protective earth (PE) and neutral (N)
Additionally, it is advised to perform the following
measurements:
• between all active conductors (e.g. L1, L2, L3, N).
VAC/DC
RINS, LowΩ
This measurement must be carried out individually
for each current circuit. The measurement is carried
out a DC voltage of 100V, 250V or 500V.
The insulation resistance is determined by current/voltage measurement. The Telaris 0100 plus
can perform an automatic measurement or a permanent measurement. The measurement duration
is dynamic for automatic measurements.
The measurement lasts until measurement value
stabilisation, however a maximum of 10s. Thus, the
correct measurement result is determined for less
capacitive loads within a very short time period and
the battery life is increased.
If an external voltage is present, the instrument
displays „Uext" and “attention” after the „Start"
key has been pressed. The insulation measurement is then blocked. The symbol „Uext" (5)
appears if a second measurement is started without an extraneous voltage present.
During insulation measurement, ensure that all
loads are disconnected from the mains and it
must be ensured that all current circuits are
switched on.
Prior to any insulation measurement, it must be
guaranteed that no installation parts to be tested are live.
13
Insulation Measurement
During insulation measurements, the measurement voltage charges capacitive UUTs. The
UNITEST TELARIS 0100 plus automatically discharges the UUT after completion of the measurement. When interrupting the measurement or when removing the test leads prior to
test termination, a dangerous voltage may be
present at the UUT. If a dangerous voltage is
detected during voltage measurement, the
UUT must be manually discharged using a high
impedance resistance (not via short-circuit!).
During the measurement, the operator may not
touch the UUT/the installation being tested,
danger of electrical shock!
If UUTs of higher capacitance´s are tested (e.g.
long cables or conductors), the automatic discharge may take longer.
Connect 2 test leads to the TELARIS 0100 plus
(sockets L1 and L2).
Only Connect both ends to the UUT by using alligator clips.
The PE connection should not be connected;
otherwise, the TELARIS 0100 plus cannot perform correct measurements and displays 0.00
MΩ.
Select insulation resistance measurement
range (RINS) via the rotary switch.
Select the desired test voltage (100V / 250V /
500V) by means of ' VINS ' (22) or ' VINS '
(23) keys.
To start automatic measurements, briefly press
the "Start” key (26)
14
If the automatic measurement takes a long time
(approx. 10s), then the UUT has a high capacitance value. In this case, you should carry out
a continuous measurement, as the automatic
measurement should be interrupted after 10s.
Possibly, the correct final value has not yet stabilised.
During the measurement, the instrument continuously shows the nominal voltage (500 V)
of the insulation measurement function in the
lower display part.
Read the measurement value on the display.
If „>199.9 MΩ" appears on the display, a particularly good insulation resistance has been
measured.
It is possible to store the measurement result
by pressing the „Store" (27) key.
You may even enter continuous measurement
if the instrument program is set to automatic
measurement by pressing the "Start” key (26)
and keeping it depressed. The measurement
lasts until the "Start" key (26) is released again.
Even during automatic measurement you may
enter continuous measurement mode when
pressing the 'Start' key (26) and keeping it depressed.
During the measurement process, intermediate results are displayed. The continuous measurement should be carried out until final measurement value stabilisation.
Mains Internal Resistance Measurement / Short Circuit Current Measurement
5.4 Mains Internal Resistance Measurement /
Short Circuit Current Measurement
The mains internal resistance is determined by applying a brief mains load using a large current. This
measurement is not required by DIN VDE [German
Standard], however it is considered as important
and valuable support in practical applications e.g.
for evaluating an installation as well as for trouble
shooting.
Terms:
Loop Impedance (ZL):
Sum of impedance values within a current loop (between the L and PE conductor).
Internal Resistance (RI):
Sum of resistance values within a current loop (between the L and N conductor).
RL:
Phase resistance
RPE:
Protective conductor resistance
RN:
Neutral conductor
RE:
Earth-Resistance
L
PE
N
Short-Circuit Current (IPSC):
Occurring current flow in the event of short circuit.
This measurement can be used in installations
(TN systems) equipped with RCDs to detect
any exchange of the PE and the neutral conductor (N) without opening within the divider.
Any faulty connection results in RCD tripping
when measuring the mains internal resistance.
Furthermore, this measurement may be used
to prove the low impedance of the neutral conductor (N).
To obtain fairly precise measurement results,
it is advised to switch off all loads or to disconnect them from the mains and to ensure
that the UUT is faultfree.
Connect the 'Schuko-Plug – Measurement Plug'
measurement adapter to the Telaris 0100 plus,
by plugging the measurement plug labelled with
L, N, PE into the respective sockets: L (33), N
(34), and PE (35).

N
The socket is continuously checked for faults.
If the "turn plug by 180°” symbol (7) is displayed on the screen, you are advised to either turn the Schuko-plug or the exchange the
L and N connectors at the instrument.
If the symbol for socket error (6) is displayed
on the screen, we are dealing with a socket wiring error. If a voltage exceeding the pre-selected contact voltage limit is present between N
and PE, 'UB>UL' (4) is displayed on the screen.
VAC/DC
To perform a complete socket test, touch the
contact electrode PE (25) and observe the displayed values on the screen. A valid result may
only be achieved when touching the contact
electrode PE (25)!
RINS, LowΩ
You are dealing with a PE error, if the error signal is audible and the 'Attention' symbol (1),
and 'Socket Error' symbol (6) are displayed.
I.e., either the PE is not connected or a high voltage (phase) is present at PE.
The measurement may only be started if the
socket is not faulty and if the measurement
adapter has been connected by respecting correct polarity.
Select the Mains Internal Resistance function
(RI, IK) using the "Measurement Function" rotary dial (32).
Select the contact voltage limit by pressing the
'VL' key (24).
16
Press the "Start" key (26) to start the measurement. During the measurement ' - ' is displayed
on the screen.
Read the measurement result displayed on the
screen. The mains internal resistance is displayed in the large result field (12). The shortcircuit current IPSC is displayed in the small result field (14). .
Mains Internal Resistance Measurement / Short Circuit Current Measurement
If the resistance measured exceeds 1999 Ω,
the attention symbol (1) and '>1999 Ω' are displayed on the screen. As there is no valid measurement value for RI, it is not possible to calculate and display the short-circuit current IK.
'---' is displayed in the small result field (14).
The short-circuit current is calculated using the
mains voltage and the loop impedance. Here,
the value 230V/400V is used for the mains voltage if it amounts close to 230V / 400V. If the
measurement value deviates considerably
from 230V / 400V, the actual measurement
value is used to calculate the short-circuit current.
If you wish to store the condition of a faulty
socket, please press the "Start” key (26) first.
After hearing the "Error Signal” you may press
the "Store” key (27).
Measurements within the three-phase system: when measuring the internal resistance
within a three-phase system, you must connect L1 (33) and L2 (34) to the phases to be tested. You may not connect L3 (35). The socke
test does not make sense for the internal resistance measurement between two phases.
Therefore, the contact electrode (25) should
not be touched. When touching the contact
electrode, a PE error is indicated.
Supply system preloading and voltage fluctuations can lead to erroneous measurement results. Therefore, you are advised to perform
several measurements and to compare the measurement results.
If many measurements are performed allowing
only "short breaks", the internal over temperature protection of the Telaris 0100 plus is triggered and the symbol for excessive temperature (20) is displayed on the screen. The
following mains internal resistance measurement may only be started once the instrument
has cooled down and the symbol (20) has disappeared from the screen. Thus, any damage
to the instrument can be avoided.
You may store the measurement result by pressing the 'Store' key (27).
17
Loop Impedance Measurement / Prospektive Short-Circuit Current Measurement
5.5 Loop Impedance Measurement /
Prospective Short-Circuit Current
Measurement
The loop impedance (L-PE / loop impedance) is understood as the sum of all resistance values within
a current loop, consisting of the resistors of the current source, the external conductor of the current
source up to the measurement point and the return
line (PE conductor) and the other current source
pole. The measurement determines the loop impedance between the external conductor and the PE
conductor. The loop impedance value is measured
by short-term mains loading. With the instrument
the TELARIS 0100 plus, short-circuit current is determined by calculation.
The short-circuit current must be known such that
an excess current release having been switched in
series can trigger at an appropriate current level and
thus at sufficient speed in the event of a short-circuit.
Connect the mains to the socket plug by respecting the correct polarity.
Select measurement range („ZL, IPSC") by
means of the measurement range selection
switch (32).
Select the contact voltage limit by pressing the
'VL' key (24).

N
PE
This measurement is used to perform the loop
measurement within current circuits which are
not equipped with an RCD. If this measurement
is started in correct circuits equipped with
RCDs, the RCD will trip!
VAC/DC
To obtain fairly precise measurement results,
switch off all loads or disconnect them from the
mains. Ensure that the UUT is faultfree.
Only the calibrated test lead which are in scope
of supply must be used!
Connect the 'Schuko-Plug - Measurement Plug'
mains adapter to the Telaris 0100 plus, by inserting the measurement plugs labelled with L,
N, PE into the respective sockets L (33), N (34),
and PE (35).
18
RINS, LowΩ
To obtain precise measurement results, switch
off all loads or disconnect them from the mains.
Loop Impedance Measurement / Prospektive Short-Circuit Current Measurement
If symbol „turn plug by 180°" (7) appears, turn
the mains plug by 180° and connect to the
socket or exchange the N and L connectors at
the test instrument.
If the symbol for socket error (6) is displayed
on the screen, an error within the mains has occurred. If a voltage is present between N and
PE exceeding the pre-selected contact voltage
limit (50V/25V), "UB>UL" is displayed on the
screen (4).
To perform a complete socket test touch the
contact electrode PE (25) and observe the display on the screen. You may only achieve a
valid result when touching the contact electrode PE (25)!
If the error signal is audible and the 'Attention'
(1) and 'Socket Error' (6) symbols are displayed on the screen, we are dealing with a PE error.
I.e., either the PE is not connected or a high voltage (phase) is present at PE.
The measurement may only be started if the
socket is faultfree and the measurement adapter has been connected by respecting correct
polarity.
Press the "Start" key (26) to start the measurement. During the measurement ' - ' is displayed
on the screen.
The short-circuit current is calculated using the
mains voltage and the loop resistance. For this,
the value 230V is used as mains voltage if the
actual mains voltage amounts to approx. 230V.
If the measurement value differs considerably
from 230V, the actual measurement value is
used for short-circuit current calculation.
Supply system preloading and voltage fluctuations can lead to erroneous measurement results. Therefore, you are advised to perform
several measurements and to compare the measurement results
If several measurements are carried out, interrupted only by „short" breaks, the internal overtemperature protection of TELARIS 0100 plus
is triggered and the symbol for overtemperature (20) appears on the display. The next loop
impedance measurement can only be started,
once the instrument has cooled down and after
the symbol (20) has gone out. Instrument damage is therefore avoided..
Measurement results can be saved by pressing
key „Store" (27).
If the user wishes to save the condition information of a faulty socket, first press the "Start”
key (26). After hearing the "error signal”, the
"Store” key (27) can be pressed.
Read the measurement result displayed on the
screen. The loop resistance is displayed on the
large result field (12), the short-circuit current
IPSC is displayed on the small result field (14).
If the resistance measured is larger than
1999Ω The attention symbol (1) and '>1999Ω'
are displayed on the screen. As there is no valid
measurement value for RS, the short-circuit
current IPSC cannot be calculated and displayed. '---' appears on the small result field
(14).

Loop Impedance Measurement without RCD Tripping
5.6 Loop Impedance Measurement without
RCD Tripping
This measurement us used for loop measurement
within current circuits equipped with RCDs without
causing the RCD to trip during the measurement.
To obtain precise measurement results, switch
off all loads or disconnect them from the mains.
Connect the 'Schuko-Plug – Measurement Plug'
measurement adapter to the Telaris 0100 plus,

General Information about RCD Tests
Read the measurement result displayed on the
screen. The loop resistance is displayed in the
large result field (12). The short-circuit current
Ik is displayed in the small result field (14).
If the resistance measured exceeds 1999 Ω,
the attention symbol (1) and '>1999 Ω' are displayed on the screen. As there is no valid measurement value for ZL, it is not possible to calculate and display the short-circuit current IK.
'---' is displayed in the small result field (14
The short-circuit current is calculated using the
mains voltage and the loop impedance. Here,
the value 230V is used for the mains voltage if
the mains voltage amounts close to 230V. If the
measurement value deviates considerably
from 230V, the actual measurement value is
used to calculate the short-circuit current.
Supply system preloading and voltage fluctuations can lead to erroneous measurement results. Therefore, you are advised to perform
several measurements and to compare the measurement results.
If many measurement are performed allowing
only "short breaks", the internal over temperature protection of the Telaris 0100 plus is triggered and the symbol for excessive temperature (20) is displayed on the screen. The
following mains internal resistance measurement may only be started once the instrument
has cooled down and the symbol (20) has disappeared from the screen. Thus, any damage
to the instrument can be avoided.
You may store the measurement result by pressing the 'Store' key (27).
5.7 General Information about RCD Tests
The contact voltage UB and the trip time t required
by the RCD to disconnect the subsequent current
circuit from the mains represent important measurement units for the assessment of an RCD.
For this reason, IEC 60364 prescribes that
a) the maximum allowable value for the contact
voltage (25V/50V) may not be exceeded within
any system during tripping at nominal residual
current.
b) the RCD must trip within a time limit of 300ms.
The task of an residual current device (RCD) consists in switching off a system within a defined time
period after an error prior the contact voltage reaches the permissible limit value of 25V / 50V.
The system testing should be started by carrying
out a visual inspection, in particular of the protective earth connection.
1. Within the IT system, the protective earth conductor does not have to be connected with the
PEN but with the protective earth connection.
2. The protective earth conductor must be connected to the PEN prior to the RCD within the TN system.
3. An insulation measurement as described in Section 5.3 must be performed. In particular it must
be proofed, that there is no connection between
N and PE following the RCD.
4. Proof regarding the low impedance connection of
equipotential bonding conductors in compliance
with Section 5.2 must be available.
If you wish to store the condition of a faulty
socket, please press the "Start” key (26) first.
After hearing the "Error Signal” you may press
the "Store” key (27).
21
RCD – Measurement of Contact Voltage UB
Time-delayed residual current devices trip at
nominal residual current within 130…500ms,
for double nominal fault current within
60…200 ms. Such RCDs are im-plemented as
main residual current protection devices
(please refer to IEC 61008-1) and are marked
with the symbol
.
The contact voltage represents the voltage present during an insulation error between two simultaneously touchable components.
At a measuring circuit without probe, available
voltages between PE and earth can influence
the measurement..
At use of the N-conductor as probe, the N-conductor should be check first for all of correct
and low-ohm connection to neutral point of system. An available voltage of the N conductor
to the earth can influence the measurement.
Leakage currents by preconnected loads can
influence the measuring.
Attached loads or operating supplies which
contains capacitors or circulating machines
can elongate the trip time.
Any test and measurement procedures in circuits equipped with residual current devices
should only be performed after having consulted the operator terminals (data processing
systems, material processing, motors, etc.).
For measurements on earthed sockets or
equipment with protective conductor connection, the protective earth must be checked for
correct connection by touching contact electrode "PE". If an error is indicated via the socket error symbol (6), the PE connection must be
checked ! The user may only start the test, once
the protective conductor is properly connected.
22
Prior to testing, we recommend all loads are
switched off as they could falsify the measurement result.
The protective earth must be free of external
voltage for the RCD test. However if an extraneous voltage is present, the instrument only
indicates the voltage VC having been generated by the measurement. The measurement interruption caused by excess of VL by VC is only
generated by the actual voltage present between the neutral conductor (N) and the protective earth (PE).
5.7.1 RCD – Measurement of Contact
Voltage UB and the Earthing Resistance
RE without RCD Tripping
The instrument UNITEST TELARIS 0100 plus offers
the facility to test contact voltage or the earthing resistance with reference to the nominal current of the
RCD within supply systems equipped with RCDs without causing the RCD to trip. The contact voltage
measurement is performed at approximately 1/3 of
the pre-selected nominal current. The measured
contact voltage is then extrapolated to nominal trip
current and finally displayed.
The contact voltage is determined by short-term
mains loading, the measurement current flows within the PE and L conductors.
To achieve a precise measurement result, we
advise to switch off all loads or to disconnect
them from the mains, and to ensure that the
UUT is faultfree.
Leakage currents within the current circuit following the residual current circuit breaker may
falsify the measurement, like any possible voltage present between PE and ground, and any
possible voltage present between neutral conductor and ground.
RCD – Measurement of Contact Voltage UB
Prior to performing the measurement, check
the connection of the neutral conductor between the mains neutral point and the earth.
The contact voltage only refers to the contact
voltage generated by the measurement and not
to the actual contact voltage present.
Connect the "Schuko-plug Measurement Plug"
mains adapter to the Telaris 0100 plus, by inserting the measurement plugs labelled with L,
N, PE into the respective sockets L (33),N (34),
and PE (35).

Energy Management /Maintenance/Battery Replacement
8.0 Energy Management
Approximately 5 minutes after the last key operation,
the instrument switches off automatically (autopower-off). To switch the instrument on again, turn
the rotary switch from the „OFF" position to the desired function or press the key “Start” (26) again .
If the battery symbol (8) appears in the display the
battery is low. The instrument might still function,
however, without fulfilling the specifications. If the
batteries are used further and discharged, the instrument will automatically switch off once the battery voltage falls below the minimum level. The battery symbol (8) will blink for several seconds. You
cannot switch on the instrument with discharged
batteries.
9.0 Maintenance
When using the instrument in compliance with the
instruction manual, no special maintenance is required.
Should operational problems occur during daily use,
our Hotline Support (phone 0049(0)7684/8009-29)
will be at your disposal, free of charge. For any
queries regarding the instrument, please always
quote product designation and serial number, both
marked on the typed shield label on the rear of the instrument.
If functional errors occur after expiration of warranty, our after sales service will repair your instrument
without delay.
9.1 Cleaning
If the instrument is dirty after daily usage, it is advised
to clean it by using a damp cloth and a mild household detergent.
Prior to cleaning, ensure that the instrument is
switched off and disconnected from external
voltage supply and any other instruments connected (such as EUT, control instruments, etc.).
Never use acid detergents or dissolvants for
cleaning.
Do not use the instrument after cleaning until
is has completely dried off.
36
10.0 Battery Replacement
If the battery symbol (8) appears in the display, proceed with battery replacement.
Prior to storage battery replacement, disconnect the instrument from any connected test
leads.
When replacing or changing the battery, make
certain of correct polarity.
Reverse polarity of batteries may destroy the
instrument. Furthermore, they may explode or
ignite.
Only use batteries in compliance with the specifications in the technical data section 1,5V
Mignon Typ IEC LR6 (size AA).
Never try to disassemble battery cells !The battery contains highly alkaline electrolyte. If electrolyte gets in contact with skin or clothing,
rinse immediately with water. If electrolyte gets
in contact with the eyes, immediately flush by
using pure water and consult a doctor.
Never try to make contact between both battery cell poles, for example by using a wire connection. The resulting short-circuit current is
very high and causes extreme heat. Danger of
fire and explosion !
Battery Replacement
Switch off the instrument via the rotary switch and
disconnect the instrument from the connected
measurement circuits.
Remove holster
Loosen the screws on the rear of the instrument
Lift the battery case cover (by gently hitting the instrument in the palm of your hand).
Remove the discharged batteries.
Insert new batteries and ensure there is correct
polarity.
Replace the battery case cover and retighten the
screws.
The instrument is now ready for further measurements.
Please consider your environment when you
dispose of your used batteries or accumulators. They belong in a rubbish dump for hazardous waste. In most cases, the batteries
can be returned to their point of sale.
Please, comply with the appropriate regulations
concerning the return, recycling and disposal of
used batteries.
If an instrument is not used over an extended period of time, the batteries must be removed.
Should the instrument be contaminated by leaking battery cells, the instrument has to be returned for cleaning and inspection to the factory.

Built in fuses
11.0
Built in fuses
The instrument measurement inputs are protected
by fuses, described in Section 13, Technical Data.
Both fuses are housed within the test instrument: Fuse F1 is located within the input circuit of L1 (or L). Fuse F2 is located within the input
circuit of L3 (or PE). To replace the fuses, you
must open the instrument TELARIS 0100 plus.
For the function RI, IPSC - Internal Line Resistance
Display >1999Ohm also for sockets, which possess a known low internal resistance (other electrical loads do function): Fuse F1 has tripped.
If the fuse F2 is faulty, the socket test will indicate a
PE error, which will disappear when touching the PE
electrode (25). During the PE electrode contact the
measurement may be started. The internal resistance measurement between both phases works
correctly if the fuse F1 is in good condition.
The fuses may only be replaced by our factory
service department.
You may only use fuses complying with the
current values, voltage values, switch off characteristics and capacities as stipulated in our
technical data section.
11.1
Display for Tripped Fuses
If during the measurement, the TELARIS 0100
plus displays the measurement data described
below, this indicates that the respective fuse has
tripped.
The fuse must be replaced and the measurement instrument must be returned to our factory or an authorised service department for
overhauling.
Function "Low Ohm":
Display >19.99 Ohm in spite of short-circuited
test leads: Fuse F1 has tripped.
For the function "Rins":
Display >199.9 MOhm in spite of short-circuited
test leads: Fuse F1 has tripped or the measurement
is cancelled. The following symbols are briefly displayed: 'Attention' (1) and 'Uext' (5): Fuse F1 has
tripped.
38
Functions "Rs”:
Display >1999Ohm also for sockets, which possess a lower loop resistance: Fuse F1 has tripped.
If the fuse F2 is faulty, the socket test will indicate a
PE error, which will disappear when touching the PE
electrode (25).
RCD-Test
Display UB>UL also for sockets, which are in good
condition: Fuse F1 has tripped.
If the fuse F2 is faulty, the socket test will indicate a
PE error, which will disappear when touching the PE
electrode (25).
The rotary field recognition and the voltage measurement facilities function even if fuses F1
and/or F2 have tripped.
12.0 Calibration Interval
We suggest a calibration interval of one year. If the
instrument is used very often or if it is used under
rough conditions we recommend shorter intervals.
If the instrument is used few times only the calibration interval can be extended on to 3 years.
