CONNECTION DETAILS
Power: 3 pin mains cable is provide with the instrument connect the three pin socket to
the instrument at the rear panel and to the AC mains 230V supply.
Sensor: 5 pin connected is provided at the rear panel marked sensor. Connect one end of
the cable provided at the rear panel marked and other end to the instrument.
PROCEDURE:
8. Check connection made and switch ON the instrument by rocker switch at the front
panel. The display glows to indicate the instrument is ON.
9. Allow the instrument is in ON position for 10 minutes for initial warm up.
10. Adjust the potentiometer in the front panel till the display reads 00.0.
11. Apply load to the fulcrum arm by adding dead weights in steps of 100gms.
12. The instrument reads the load on the sensor and display through LED. Readings can
be tabulated.

CONNECTION DETAILS:
Power: 3 pin mains cable provided with the instrument connect the 3 pin socket to the
instrument at the real panel and to the Ac mains 230v supply.
Sensor: battery terminals are provided at the front panel to connect the sensor.

OPERATING PROCEDURE:
1. Check connections and switch ON the instrument by socket switch of the front
panel. The displays close to indicate the instrument is ON.
2. Allow the instrument in ON position for 10 minutes for initial worm up.
3. Select the parameter line acceleration or velocity or displacement to be measured.
4. Apply dynamic force on the sensor the display will shows the diameter.
5. By mounting the sensor on any vibrating body the acceleration, velocity and
displacement of the vibrating body can be measured.
