Simply screw in and turn on power! Internal lamps indicate if the starter (ignitor) or the ballast need replacement. Suitable for H.I.D. ballast circuit with a starter. Can be used on: High Pressure sodium, Metal halide and mercury Vapor. Check starting pulse voltage and open circuit voltage. Take the headache out of troubleshooting your HID ballast. Tester determines which component is faulty. Used by electricians and contractors all over the world. Includes carrying pouch.

Save time, save money, save headaches!

Instructions are printed right on the fixture testers:

  • 1. Make sure power is off
  • 2. Screw tester into base lampholder and turn power on
  • 3. The tester checks the starting pulse voltage and the open circuit voltage (OCV) of the ballast
  • 4. Lamp 1 blinks–OK, Lamp 1 does not blink–check starter
  • 5. Lamp 2 lights–OK, Lamp 2 does not light–check ballast

Determine the Correct Protection Level, To evaluate Fire Retardant clothing materials in order to measure the heat transferred through the fabric, two values are calculated: Arc Thermal Performance Value (ATPV)...the minimum energy causing the predicted onset of second-degree burns and Heat Attenuation Factor (HAF)...the percentage of total energy of the arc that the fabric prevents from passing through, OSHA requires that each employer must assess the potential hazards in the work environment and determine the appropriate clothing materials using ASTM PS57-97. Always do a hazard assessment. You will need to know electrical system voltage, fault current available, number of phases, Arc time duration, estimated Arc gap, minimum distance from the Arc, and Arc configuration.
