WarrantyINTRODUCTION1.3Warranty– The design of the test system as supplied by us must not be altered.– The warranty shall be void if you fail to comply with the stipulations of this operatingmanual.– The test system has been designed, manufactured and inspected before delivery withall due care in accordance with the EC directives as per enclosed declaration ofconformity.– The test system meets the standards for conducted and emitted interference specifiedin the declaration of conformity.– The safety of the test system is ensured only if the necessary maintenance work iscarried out by our service organisation or a customer service office authorised by us.– The work listed in the maintenance schedules (Page 78) may only be performed by thepersons specified there.– Only genuine OEM parts may be used in maintenance and repair work.– For translations the statements and specifications of the German operating manual arebinding.1.3.1Intended useThe test system has been designed and constructed exclusively for temperature andclimatic2) tests.You can conduct tests to determine the effects of temperature and humidity on the materialproperties and reliability of a test specimen.1.3.2Inadmissible and improper useDANGERInadmissible and improper use means, for example:– Placing substances which become potentially hazardous when exposed to thetemperature range of the test system in the test system or sufficiently close to it torepresent a danger.– Placing substances that could become explosive in contact with air inside orhazardously near the test system.– Endangering living beings by allowing them into the test system– Using the test system for heating or storing foodExceptions are possible, provided the test system is equipped with the necessary safetydevices1) (e.g. explosion protection).A description of this supplementary equipment can be found in the Appendix.2 – 861) option82) climatic test systems only3) test systems from 600 ltr onlyBetriebsanleitung für Temperatur- und Klimaprüfschränke 3K 3,5" (8", 12", Cpad)Kap1.fm 63837116 en 11.2010– Placing inflammable, explosive, toxic or corrosive substances inside or hazardouslynear the test system

INTRODUCTION1.4SafetySafetyDANGERThe following basic rules must be strictly observed. Failure to comply may presenta danger to life and limb of the operating personnel or third parties, or result indestruction of the test specimen or the test system. Do not remove any safety covers. Do not disable any safety devices. Do not tamper with any safety devices.Such modifications can be especially dangerous for the operating personnel, since theymay have no knowledge of the alteration, and rely on the test system's safety.1.4.1Definition of a specialist technicianBetriebsanleitung für Temperatur- und Klimaprüfschränke 3K 3,5" (8", 12", Cpad)Kap1.fm 63837116 en 11.2010A specialist technician is a person who, due to his/her training and experience, is capableof avoiding potential hazards relating to electricity, the refrigerating unit or explosiveatmospheres.1) option2) climatic test systems only3) test systems from 600 ltr only3 – 86

SafetyINTRODUCTION1.4.2Safety instructions– The system may only be operated by trained personnel.– The user must compile appropriate operating guidelines based on this operatingmanual. These operating guidelines must take relevant local and plant-internalconditions and the language of the operating personnel into account.– The user must ensure that all personnel working with the test system know and observethe safety instructions.– Work on electrical equipment and the refrigerating unit must be performed by ourservice organisation or a specialist technician authorised by us. The necessarydocumentation is in the Service Manual and should only be used by these persons.– EN 378-4 Annex D.6 specifies an annual inspection of the pressure control push switch.This may only be performed by our service organisation or a specialist technicianauthorised by us.– The user must ensure that the directions regarding installation and operation ofrefrigerating units as per EN 378-1 chap. 4.2, EN 378-3 chap. 5 and Annex A, EN 378-4chaps. 4, 5 and 6, and national directives (e.g. for Germany the Health and Safety atWork Regulations) are duly observed.– According to EC Regulation 842/2006, you are obligated to have refrigeration and airconditioning equipment with a fill quantity of 3 kg and up of FC and HFC (e.g., R404A,R507 and R23) inspected for leaks by a certified person at least once a year, and with30 kg and up at least twice a year; this must be recorded in a logbook.4 – 86 First read the operating manual for the control unit. Keep the operating manuals near the test system. In addition to these operation instructions, the relevant national laws, regulations anddirectives must be observed when installing and operating the test system. When introducing a test specimen having electrical wiring, the local and/or nationalsafety rules must be observed. This especially applies with regard to equipotentialbonding for leakage currents that may be caused by a test specimen. If leakagecurrents 16 A are able to occur, you must provide an external equipotential bondingconductor for the test space. Make sure that heat-emitting test specimens are removed or switched off when the testsystem is switched off (fire hazard). The test space is only protected against excesstemperature if the test system is switched on. 5.6.3 Heat-emitting test specimens (Page 57) Ensure that the separately adjustable tmin / tmax temperature limiter is set correctly forthe material you are testing. Before closing the test space door, make sure that no one is inside the test space.1) option82) climatic test systems only3) test systems from 600 ltr onlyBetriebsanleitung für Temperatur- und Klimaprüfschränke 3K 3,5" (8", 12", Cpad)Kap1.fm 63837116 en 11.2010– Have the independently adjustable tmin / tmax temperature limiter checked annually.The actual value display of the temperature limiter must agree with the actual value inthe test space, and the temperature limiter must be triggered when the limits areexceeded, as described in Chapter 5.9.2 (Page 61).

Components and their function2.2DESCRIPTION OF THE TEST SYSTEMComponents and their function Fig. 2-1 Test system (Page 9)2.2.1Test spaceThe test space is made of high-gloss stainless steel, material No. 1.4301, floor of the testspace is made of 1.4404. Test specimens can be placed on the insert shelf or theperforated floor.The basin at the rear of the test space floor contains the humidification water2).2.2.2Test space door with lockThe test space door secures the test space with a lockable latch. The door can optionallybe equipped with a window.2.2.3Control unitsAll control and operating commands can be activated on the control unit by simply touchingthe respective function symbols.Standard equipment is attached to a 8" mounting bar. The CONTROLPAD* is on the testspace door.Optionally, the test system can be fitted with a 12" control unit with integratedCONTROLPAD* on the test space door or with a 3.5" control unit on the test space door.Actual values can be displayed on the CONTROLPAD* , switching the test spaceillumination1) on, starting/stopping tests, acknowledging alarm/warning signals. Appendix: Operating manual CONTROLPAD*2.2.4Entry portsThe test system is equipped with entry ports at the right and left side. Cables and testingequipment can be passed through it into the test space.2.2.5Switchgear cabinetThe controller design complies with EN 60204 Part 1.2.2.6Pressure compensationA pressure compensation opening is located on top of the test system.10 – 861) option142) climatic test systems only3) test systems from 600 ltr onlyBetriebsanleitung für Temperatur- und Klimaprüfschränke 3K 3,5" (8", 12", Cpad)Kap2.fm 63837116 en 11.2010The switchgear cabinet contains the system fuses, control modules and electricalcomponents. Forced ventilation of the switchgear cabinet is effected by a built-in fan.

DESCRIPTION OF THE TEST SYSTEM2.2.7Components and their functionTemperature and humidity sensorsThe sensors used for temperature and humidity measurement are located in the testspace, at the front, underneath the perforated floor.2.2.8Front flapClimatic test systems are equipped with a reservoir for humidification and psychrometricwater; the reservoir is located behind the front flap.2.2.9Mechanical sectionThe mechanical section is accessible by removing the panels. The mechanical sectioncontains the equipment necessary for producing the test conditions.
