FUNCTIONING

  1. Connect the cables to the connection terminals of the tester
  2. Connect the lightning rod clamps in the test position, as indicated in the connection diagram regardless of bipolarity.
  3. Press the power button.
  4. Select “New Test”.
  5. Simultaneously press the two TEST buttons to start the cycle.
  6. Wait a few seconds while the tester performs the test.

The measurement must always be made between 2 existing potentials in all lightning rods with priming devices (ESE):

  • ATMOSPHERIC POTENTIAL (Body and tip)
  • EARTH POTENTIAL* (axis)

*If the measurement is made with the lightning rod installed, the connection to ground potential can be made on the mast or the downpipe, since both elements would be attached to the axis of the lightning rod.

  • Do not touch the lightning rod at the time of testing.
  • This equipment produces high voltage. Handle the alligator clips correctly.
  • It is necessary to press the test buttons with both hands.
  • Avoid testing in stormy conditions.
TEST OK Test successful
TEST FAILED Test failed
OPEN CIRCUIT Open circuit >> PDC is faulty
SHORT CIRCUIT Short circuit >> The PDC has a short circuit or low resistive value
LEAKAGE CORRENT Leak current >> PDC has a current leak
OUT OF RANGE Out of range >> The PDC works at voltages outside those specified

The AS TESTER PRO lightning rod tester only guarantees the proper functioning of the priming device but not the physical integrity of the lightning rod, so a positive result in a lightning rod that has suffered physical damage does not mean that it maintains its condition. level of coverage, since this does not depend only on the priming device, but also on physical parameters, so to guarantee the level of coverage, a visual inspection of the physical integrity of the lightning rod is also required.
