Tinker & Rasor Model APS High Voltage Holiday Detector
This pulsating DC holiday detector with regulated voltage has a range of 800 volts to 35,000 volts, giving complete coverage for coating specifications.
The instrument has been ergonomically designed with an angled handle and an open grip design that takes into account different hand and glove sizes.
Of the new features, one of the most important is the patent pending safety switch. This trigger system provides greater jobsite safety for both the operator and nearby personnel and is very easy to use. Simply release the trigger, and the instrument instantly turns off.
The handle must be held down on the grip to operate the instrument, and the unit is shut down immediately when the handle is released.
This feature will increase jobsite safety as an instrument cannot be left energized while unattended.
After setting the voltage, the instrument remembers the setting and the range, so the instrument can be turned on and off as much as necessary without requiring further adjustements.
The instrument is controlled by an electronics package contained within the water impenetrable cover of the instrument. All control switches are push button operations, with large operational areas, easy to manipulate while wearing gloves. Controls include On, Low and High voltage ranges, LCD voltmeter display, the voltage setting switch, Loud and Louder volume controls and the wand handle release button.
The APS gives a visual holiday indicator, as well as audible.
The voltage selection switch is sealed from weather and dust by a screw cap. Using the supplied screwdriver, the dust cap is removed and voltages are set by turning the voltage selector as shown in the graphics. On the Low voltage range, select between 800 volts and 8,000 volts. On the High voltage range, select between 3,500 volts and 35,000 volts.
The LCD voltmeter display shows voltages in kilovolts (kV). So, a voltage setting of 800 volts would be displayed as 0.8 and a voltage selection of 35,000 volts would be shown as 35.0.
The audible alert speaker is located in the middle of the top of the instrument. The Loud setting is recommended for normal operations, where ambient noise levels are normal. For louder areas, where ear protection may be required, the Louder volume setting may be used.
*Electrode choice is made from the the Full Circle Spring Electrodes, 4" to 36" pipe diameters,
or the Half Circle Spring Electrodes, 0.75" to 8" pipe diameters or the Silicone-Rubber brush electrdodes, 2" to 8" widths. You may choose one electrode per instrument, within the size ranges listed. Other sizes are available at additional cost. Please call or e-mail for more information: +1 (909) 890-0700 or Info e-mail.
The new carrying case (on Left) is included with the Model APS and AP/W.
