How to Add a User?

Users are set by pressing F2 on the keyboard, and you can have up to 6 users in the unit. To Add or edit, Press either F1, F2 or F3 for the line you wish to modify and the unit will go to Alpha mode. You can then type in the username you wish to appear on tags and reports. We suggest entering your Initials and Licence number.

Why does the Unit go to Menu A rather than Memory Mode?

If the Tester goes to Menu A this can mean the cables under the keyboard are loose, power the unit off and lift the keyboard and disconnect and reconnect the grey serial lead that goes to the scanner and keyboard USB port.


Try powering on the machine and see if it goes to Memory mode offering sites and to enter a new appliance. If it doesn’t, disconnect the barcode scanner from its serial connection.


How do you switch between 250V and 500V Insulation Testing?

From the main menu on the Tester, Hold the Enter key and press the F2 button - you will then be prompted to to Change Insulation voltage between 250v and 500V. 500V is the default for Testing but 250V is suitable for sensitive equipment
