Personal Precautions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS. IT IS OF UTMOST
IMPORTANCE THAT BEFORE USING YOUR TESTER, YOU
READ THIS MANUAL AND FOLLOW THE SAFETY AND
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
2.1 Always have someone within range of your voice, or close
enough to come to your aid, when working around lead
acid batteries.
2.2 Have plenty of fresh water and baking soda nearby in case
battery acid contacts skin, clothing or eyes.
2.3 Wear complete eye protection, clothing protection, and
wear rubber soled shoes. Place damp cloth over battery
to protect against acid spray. When ground is very wet or
covered with snow, wear rubber boots. Avoid touching
eyes while working near battery.
Risk of explosive gases
Batteries generate explosive gases during
normal operation, and when discharged or
charged.
2.4 If battery acid contacts skin or clothing, wash immediately with baking soda and water. If acid enters the eye,
1.1 To reduce risk of battery explosion, follow these safety
instructions and those published by the battery manufacturer and the manufacturer of any equipment you intend to use in the vicinity of a battery. Review cautionary
marking on these products and on the engine, and on the
vehicle or equipment containing the battery.
minutes, and seek medical attention.

2.6 Be extra cautious to reduce risk of dropping a metal tool
onto the battery. It might spark or short circuit the battery
or other electrical part that may cause an explosion.
If you are uncertain as to the type of battery you are trying
to test, then contact the seller or battery manufacturer.
1.2 Do not operate the tester if it has received a sharp blow,
been dropped or otherwise damaged in any way; take it
1.3
tery or engine.
2.7 Before working with a lead-acid battery, remove personal
metal items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, watches,
etc. A lead-acid battery can produce a short circuit current
high enough to weld such items causing a severe burn.
center when repair is required. Incorrect reassembly may
1.4 Test batteries in a dry, well-ventilated area.
1.5 Do not expose the tester to rain or snow.
Testing Precautions
IMPORTANT: Read this instruction manual before using the tester.
To avoid electric shock when testing jars, follow
your company’s safety practices and these
guidelines:
• Wear safety glasses or a face shield.
• Wear protective rubber gloves
• Wear a protective apron or shop coat.
• Perform service work only for which you have been
trained
• Do not disconnect the battery cables from power systems
during the test without authorization
• Do not place yourself in an electrical circuit
• Avoid simultaneous contact with the jar and with frame
racks or hardware that may be grounded
• Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain
lead and lead compounds, chemicals known to cause
cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Wash hands after handling.

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
The troubleshooting tips in this section will help you resolve
most testing and printing problems. For problems with the
printer, digital temperature gun, or the PC software application,
refer to their manuals or call Midtronics Customer Service for
assistance. (See Patents, Limited Warranty, Service.)
Probe tip is bent or stops retracting
To replace a damaged a probe tip:
1. Grasp the probe tip with pliers at the top of the sleeve.
Screen does not power on during testing (no text/graphics)
Do not damage probe when removing
from sleeve.
Check the connection to the jar.
The jar voltage might be too low (less than 1 volt) to test.
Grasping the sleeve that encases the probe tip
can damage the tip.
The analyzer’s battery pack might need to be recharged
or replaced.
2.
Recharging the analyzer battery pack
Recharge the analyzer battery pack if:
The display does not turn on when you press the POWER
button.
Pull the tip straight out.
3. Grasp the replacement tip with the pliers and insert it into
the sleeve.
4.
Push the probe tip into a soft surface, such as cardboard,
until it hits the bottom of the sleeve.
NOTE: To obtain replacement tips, contact
Midtronics Customer Service. (See Patents, Lim
ited Warranty, Service)
The screen displays:
**Warning**
Internal Battery Low!
Replace Batteries Soon!
3.
Insert the AC adapter plug into the connector.
Test Failure
Connect the power of the AC adapter to an AC outlet.
If the analyzer fails to advance to the next jar count, try to
retest.
Periodically turn on the analyzer and check if the charge
level indicator is black. When the battery pack is fully
charged, disconnect the adapter from the analyzer and
the AC outlet.
NOTE: The maximum charge time is 3 to 4hours.
Do not overcharge.
Test results do not print or print incorrectly

Check that the printer is on

Check that the tester IR transmitter are aligned

Check printer batteries

Replacing the analyzer battery pack
If the screen does not power on after recharging, replace the
battery pack.
Press battery pack end tabs and pull battery pack.
Replace with charged battery pack.
If the problem persists, call Midtronics Customer Service.
(See Patents, Limited Warranty, Service.)

Troubleshooting
PRINTER STATUS LED
Solutions
If the IR transmitter and receiver are not aligned, all the
 data may not print. The infrared ports on the top of the
analyzer and on the printer (below the MODE button)
should be pointed directly at each other. The maximum
distance for reliable transmission between the ports is 18
inches (45 cm).

Direct sunlight interferes with infrared data transmission/receiving. If the printer is not receiving data, remove
the printer and the CELLTRON ADVANTAGE from direct
sunlight. If the printed characters are not clear or are
partially missing, recharge the battery and reprint.

Verify that a compatible communications protocol is
selected in the printer setup. IrDA Mode is compatible
with the Midtronics printer (“IRDAPhysical Layer” on
the
printer’s self-test printout). Refer to the printer manual
for
information.

If you are unable to print after ensuring the analyzer is
functioning, the printer is on, the batteries are good, and
the IR transmitter and receiver are aligned, see the printer
manual for further instructions or call Midtronics. (See
Patents, Limited Warranty, Service.)
To realign, press the BACK key to cancel the print. Verify alignment between the analyzer and printer; then try to print
the test results again.

If the message PRINTING appears on the screen, but no
data are printing, press the BACK key to cancel the print.
least 15 minutes before attempting to print again. Align
the analyzer and printer IR transmitters and print again.

Make sure the printer is on. The printer shuts off after
two minutes of inactivity to conserve the battery. To
turn the printer on, briefly press the MODE button. The
green STATUS light should turn on. Make sure you are
using the Midtronics printer provided with the
CELLTRON ADVANTAGE. Other printers may not be
compatible.
