High Voltage Indicator
Lightning bolt illuminated by independent output voltage monitor. Audible alarm sounds prior to voltage output unless disabled in firmware.
Output resolution is typically 3-4 volts AC or DC on standard units. DC-10 and AC-10 outputs have a 6-8 volt resolution. LVIR output resolution is 0.2 volts. Measurement resolution is 1 Volt on all units, all options.
Dwell Time Accuracy
+2 seconds/minute, -500mS/minute
1 volt/second to 30000 volts/second. Firmware limits all ramps to a minimum total time of 1 second. Actual ramp times vary dependent on load. Ramp times are consistent when testing similar devices. Test engineers should always observe the test with an oscilloscope and adjust parameters to achieve desired results with each specific device under test.
Test automatically aborts when digitally stored minimum or maximum limit is exceeded. Current and resistance minimums will not trigger failures until >0.8 seconds of dwell time has elapsed to allow for settling of DUT at dwell voltage.

Stated specifications are bipolar and apply for one year within ± 5°C from calibration temperature (20 to 25°C).
0.1 times stated accuracy per °C beyond calibration temperature window
Traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Automatic "Covers on" calibration, internal or external. Calibration constants stored in non-volatile memory.
Warm up Time
No warm up time is required for units stored in ambient temperatures ranging from 64°F to 82°F (18°C to 28°C). A minimum 30 minute warm up time is recommended for units stored in temperatures outside that range. A minimum 60 minute warm up time is recommended prior to performing an external calibration procedure.
64°F to 82°F (18°C to 28°C). Ensure units are well ventilated and fan is operational at all times. Fan should be sucking fresh cool clean air into unit for optimal performance. Overheating and freezing may result in unexpected resetting or lockup of units. Keep vents clear.
