1. Power-up only the "MAIN" unit of the WPS into the ARVI Mode (see WPS manual for details) and verify that the automatic self-test has been successfully completed per its operating instructions. The "PROBE" unit should not be turned on during this test.
2. Insert the plug of the Voltage Indicator Tester into the jack located on the back of the housing of the "MAIN" unit of the WPS that is in ARVI Mode.
3. Connect the alligator clip onto the Shepherd Hook of the "MAIN" unit of the WPS.
4. One of the Range LED's in the four (4) to twenty-five (25) kV range of the WPS should begin blinking and the audible alarm should emit a beeping sound.
5. Leave the Voltage Indicator Tester connected to the WPS for 15-20 seconds. The WPS should go into the AUTO-HOLD mode. The Range LED should light continuously and the audible beeping should convert to a continuous signal for 1-2 seconds followed by 5-6 very rapid beeps, followed by 1-2 seconds of silence, and finally return to the normal audible mode until the WPS is reset.
6. The Voltage Indicator Tester procedure tests all components of the circuitry on the main unit of the WPS that was not already tested by the power-up self-test. In order to test the "PROBE" unit of the WPS, follow the WPS manual to link the "MAIN" and "PROBE" and verify "In-Phase" and "Out-of-Phase" readings are correctly displayed utilizing known energized voltage sources.
7. If the WPS operates as described, it is operating properly. If not, replace the battery in the Voltage Indicator Tester and repeat the above procedure. If the WPS still does not operate as described, either the WPS or Voltage Indicator Tester may not be operating properly. Both units should be returned to the manufacturer for repair.
