1.4 Proper Usage


• The equipment/system or the system components may only be used for the applications
described in the manual or the technical description, and only in combination with the
equipment, components, and devices of other manufacturers as far as this is recommended or
permitted by Heraeus Electro-Nite.
• The product described has been developed, manufactured, tested, and the documentation
compiled in keeping with the relevant safety standards. Consequently, if the handling
instructions and safety guidelines described for planning, installation, proper operation, and
maintenance are adhered to, the product, under normal conditions, will not be a source of
danger to property or life.

1.5 Procedures for Maintenance and Repair


If measurement or testing work is to be carried out on an active unit, the National accident
prevention rules and regulations must be observed. Use only suitable electrical tools.

Warning:
• Repairs to an item of automation equipment may only be carried out by Heraeus Elec-
tro-Nite service personnel. For replacement purposes, use only parts or components
contained in the spare parts list or listed in the Spare Parts List section of this manual.
Unauthorised opening of equipment and improper repairs can result in loss of life or se-
vere personal injury as well as substantial property damage.
• Only use the fuse types specified in the technical specifications or the maintenance
instructions of this manual.
• Do not throw batteries into an open fire and do not carry out any soldering work on
batteries (danger of explosion). Maximum ambient temperature 100°C. Lithium batteries
or batteries containing mercury should not be opened or recharged. Make sure that the
same type is used when replacing batteries.
• Batteries and accumulators must be disposed of as classified waste.

1.6 Guidelines for Handling Electrostatic Discharge


VLSI chips (MOS technology) are used in practically all Heraeus Electro-Nite electronic modules.
These VLSI components are, by their nature, very sensitive to over voltages and thus to
electrostatic discharge (ESD).

1.6.1 Electrostatic Discharge

This pictogram and warning label is used on cabinets, sub-racks, and packing and suggests
that modules are susceptible to ESD.

Before starting maintenance or installation make sure that you have sufficient protection
against ESD.

Electronic devices can be destroyed by voltage and energy levels that are far below the level
perceptible to human beings. Such voltages can occur when a component or a module is touched
by a person who has not been electrostatically discharged.

In most cases, the components subjected to such over voltages, cannot be immediately detected
as faulty; the fault occurs only after a long period in operation.

1.6.2 Shipping of ESD Modules


Anti-static packing material must always be used when storing and dispatching modules and
components like metallic plastic boxes or metal boxes. If the container itself is not conductive, the
modules must be wrapped in a conductive material such as conductive foam, anti-static plastic
bag, aluminium foil, or paper. Normal plastic bags or foil should not be used under any
circumstances.

For modules with built-in batteries, ensure that the conductive packing does not touch or short-
circuit the battery connections: if necessary cover the connections with insulating tape or material.

2 Introduction

2.1 Overview

The Checkmate IV is a two-channel device that simulates temperatures


and EMF voltages. It is used to check the correct functioning of Heraeus
Electro-Nite’s temperature and oxygen measuring instruments like the
Multi-Lab Celox and basic E line series instruments.

The instrument has a robust aluminium casing with membrane keypad


and graphical multi-function display. It is operated with five membrane
keys. It has a plug connector for several adapters that allow a direct
connection with different measuring instruments and measuring lances.

For Positherm measurements, seven temperatures can be simulated


and the element types S, R, and B can be set. In the Celox version,
seven EMF voltages can be output additionally.

To check the measuring cables and the measuring lance, the


Checkmate IV measures the insulation resistance along individual
wires.

2.2 Delivery Scope

The Checkmate IV is delivered with a wide-range voltage adapter and country-specific socket
adapters. One lance adapter (Celox type) and a ground cable are also included.

6 Checking Instrument Calibration

6.1 Performing a Check

To obtain a fast, on-site check of the measuring instrument calibration, plug the lance adapter of
the Checkmate IV on to the lance. Press the switch key to output the preselected temperature
values. The measuring instrument to be tested shortly indicates it is ready for measuring (green
lamp), then the measurement is started (yellow lamp) until the value is displayed at the end of the
measurement (red lamp). If the displayed temperature value is inside the range "rated value ± 2°C"
or, on a Celox measurement, the EMF is in the range "rated value ± 2mV", the measuring
instrument is correctly calibrated and a readjustment is not required. Deviations could be the result
of the different temperature plateau determinations of the measuring instruments.

Example of checking a Celox measuring system:

To obtain the same readings, you must verify that the measuring instrument and the Checkmate
have the same:

• IPTS table
• Thermocouple and burnout type
• Temperature unit
• Compensation
• Compensation cable

6.2 Simulating a Temperature/Celox Measurement

Press the switch key to simulate a Positherm or Celox measurement. The Checkmate IV first
carries out an internal self-calibration.

When the measuring circuit is closed the instrument to be checked signals readiness for operation.
After a short period of time, the temperature values or EMF voltages run to the set rated values.
The symbol in the right upper corner of the display changes from Open< to Out>.

This is the display before pressing the switch key:

Type:S IPTS68 Open<

Temp = 1000.0
10 00.0 °C
EMF = 200.0 mV
T/Val E/Val Extra
Out

This is the display after pressing the switch key. The measured ambient temperature is displayed in
the lower right corner:

Type:S IPTS68 Out>

Temp = 1000.0
10 00.0 °C
EMF = 200.0 mV
T/Val E/Val
Open
Tcjc = 22.4°C

The temperature values fed to the instrument connector are measured by the Checkmate IV and
displayed as actual values. Checkmate IV always tries to adapt to the load resistance, which could
cause the displayed temperature value to fluctuate for a short time. If you press the switch key
again, the output is halted and the display shows the selected rated value. During the output, a new
temperature value can be set by pressing the Temp or CX/QC key. When in calibration check
mode, you can change any temperature output value, and not just the preset values.

6.3 Simulating a QuiK-Lance Measurement

The Checkmate IV can be used to simulate a QuiK-Lance measurement on a Multi-Lab Celox. The
following must be set:

• The burnout of the EMF channel must be set to positive.


• An output value of the EMF must be set to 15mV. This mV value must also be selected
during the output.

The value of 15mV corresponds approximately to a temperature of 1452°C. Measured temperature


values can deviate because there is no compensation with lines on this mV output channel. This
usage is intended only to check the instrument is functioning. Accuracy cannot be guaranteed in
this mode.
