Power-up, perform functional & Battery tests. Power down if ON.
Displays GOOD on LCD if acceptable voltage or Lo if unacceptable
Enters (saves) data into Memory Register, Clears HOLD and Display.
Begins measurement sequence.
BATTERY BUSS CUT OFF
ON/OFF Switch isolates batteries from instrument circuits for storage & transport
USEFUL MODES OF OPERATIONS
The instrument automatically selects and adjusts test voltage, resistance range, electrification period, then displays and Holds the measurement. The displayed measurement is the average of eight consecutive measurements, all within ±5% of each other. The measurement is “saved” in the Memory Register by pressing RESET. The instrument is now ready for the next measurement.
Allows operator to select resistance decade, test voltage and electrification period (EP).
Same as Auto Mode with following exceptions:
- Allows operator to select starting resistance decade
- Always starts measurement from the last measurement value without resetting to zero. This extends battery life & speeds up measurement sequence.
DATA LOG & CALUCULATION
In RECORD mode, the PRS-812 stores up to 80 measurements, and on demand will calculate and display the Minimum, Maximum and Average measurements stored in the register.
Designed for Intermittent use. Not intended for continuous use or production applications.
