Warnings In order to avoid the danger of electrical shock, it is important that proper safety measures are taken when working with voltages exceeding 30V AC rms, 42V AC peak or 60V DC. Before use check the unit for cracks or any other damage. Make sure the unit is free from dust, grease and moisture. Also check any associated accessories for damage. Do not use if damaged. Do not use if the battery cover is not fitted. Do not apply greater than 12V DC to the external power socket. Cautions Avoid severe mechanical shock or vibration and extreme temperature. To avoid corrosion from leaking batteries, remove the batteries when the unit is not in use for an extended period. Limit the test time to less than 10 seconds. Do not short the output terminals.

5 Warranty 10 Specifications 2. INTRODUCTION 2.1 Inspection Examine the shipping carton for any sign of damage. Inspect the unit and any accessories for damage. If there is any damage then consult your distributor immediately. 2.2 Description PD430 & PD440 The PD430 & PD440 are portable battery powered proving units for the testing of contact type voltage detectors up to 440V. The PD430 is a dual voltage proving unit which generates 50V at 50Hz for 3 seconds and then generates 440V at 50Hz. The PD440 generates 440V only at 50Hz. PD690 & PD700 The PD690 & PD700 are portable battery powered proving units for the testing of contact type voltage detectors up to 700V. The PD700 is a dual voltage proving unit which generates 50V at 50Hz for 3 seconds and then generates 700V at 50Hz. The PD690 generates 700V only at 50Hz. PD710 The PD710 is a portable battery powered proving unit for the testing of contact type voltage detectors up to 700V. The PD710 generates 700V DC only. 4 3. OPERATION Caution Always make sure the precautions and limitations of the unit being tested are observed. If necessary refer to the specification of the unit being tested. Also refer to the graph of typical output voltage under various load conditions at the rear of these instructions. 3.1 Proving Unit LED indications LED Proving unit model No. LED illumination indicates Low Voltage PD430 & PD700 50V output at proving unit terminals for approx. 3 seconds High Voltage All models High voltage output at proving unit terminals Low Battery All models Proving unit batteries are low Replace batteries High Current * PD700 UUT current consumption > 5mA * Typically Martindale voltage indicators draw < 3.5mA but other manufacturers’ instruments may vary. 3.2 Using the External Power Socket An external power jack socket is provided, allowing the use of an external 12V DC power source instead of the internal batteries. Remove the rubber shroud from the jack socket access hole, and plug in a 12V DC source (2A minimum) using a 2.5mm jack plug (centre positive). 6 Low Battery LED PD430 50V 440V 50Hz / / / PD440 440V 50Hz / / PD690 700V 50Hz / / PD700 50V 700V 50Hz / / / / PD710 700V DC / / 2.3 Accessories All units come with the following accessories: ◆ 6 x 1.5V AA alkaline batteries ◆ Instructions Accessories not included: PSUPD230 - mains powered 12V DC power supply PSUHPAT12 - 12V DC in car fused charger adaptor 2.4 Battery Installation Refer to Section 4.1 (Battery Replacement) for the battery installation instructions for all units. 3 5 If internal batteries are fitted they will be disconnected by the insertion of the jack plug. If however, the internal batteries are not the intended primary power source, it is advisable to remove them to prevent damage from leaking batteries. It is advisable to replace the rubber shroud after use to prevent the ingress of dust and moisture. Two suitable units available from Martindale Electric for providing external power are the: PSUPD230, a mains powered, 12V DC power supply; PSUHPAT12, a12V DC in car fused adaptor.

3.3 Proving a Test Lamp, Voltage Tester/Indicator, DMM etc. Place one probe of the unit under test into the left hand socket of the proving unit until it makes contact with the terminal. Place the other probe into the right hand terminal of the proving unit and gently press down. On the PD440 and PD690 the high voltage indicator will illuminate. On the PD430 and PD700 the low voltage indicator will illuminate for 3 seconds, then the high voltage indicator. Observe that the required indicators on the unit under test illuminate, then withdraw the probe from the right hand terminal first, and then the left. Do not operate the proving unit for periods longer than 10 seconds. If none of the proving unit LED’s illuminate when performing the above tests check the condition of the proving unit batteries and replace them if required (see section 4.1). 3.4 Test Lamp, Voltage Tester/Indicator Cables During the above tests, emphasis should also be placed upon the flexing of the UUT cable along its length, and particularly at the entry points to the hand held elements, to confirm that the cable has not fractured. It may be necessary to perform this test a number of times so as not to operate the proving unit for longer than 10 seconds in any one test episode. 8 4.4 Storage Conditions The instrument should be kept in cool, dry conditions and not subjected to shock, scratching or other damage, prolonged direct harsh sunlight, extremes of temperature and in such a manner as to preserve the working life of the unit. It is strongly advised that the unit is not kept in a tool box where other tools may damage it. 4. MAINTENANCE 4.1 Battery Replacement Remove the rear battery cover by unscrewing the screw at the end of the cover. The screw is captive but once it is loose the cover can be slid downwards beyond the bottom end of the unit and lifted clear. Observing correct polarity fit 6 new 1.5V, AA alkaline batteries (IEC LR6, NEDA 15A). Replace the battery cover by positioning it into the rear casing slots and sliding it upward into position, then tighten the screw. Do not over-tighten. Note: Do not mix old and new batteries. 4.2 Cleaning If contamination is found, clean with a damp soft cloth and if necessary a mild detergent or alcohol. Do not use abrasives, abrasive solvents, or detergents which can cause damage to the unit. If a mild detergent is used, the unit should subsequently be thoroughly cleaned with a water dampened soft cloth. After cleaning, dry and allow to remain in a dry environment for 2 hours before use. 4.3 Repair and Service There are no user serviceable parts in this unit other than those that may be described in section 4. Return to Martindale Electric if faulty. Our service department will quote promptly to repair any fault that occurs outside the guarantee period. 7 5.
