PERFORMING ELECTRICAL SAFETY TESTS
Ensure that you observe the following safety precautions when performing the
required safety checks:
a. Do not conduct tests in an occupied patient location or while the patient is
connected to a related power system branch circuit.
b. If the safety analyzer fails the start-up and self test, do not continue. Stop
immediately. Obtain another analyzer and turn in the defective analyzer for repair.
c. If the system-voltage test fails, contact the Directorate of Engineering and
Housing or other appropriate authority to repair the power system.
d. Avoid contacting the UUT during any test.
e. Do not run tests on the power line ground system with electrically sensitive
patients present unless you take steps to isolate them from all connections to any
equipment which in turn is connected to the power line under test.
REQUIRED TOOLS AND EQUIPMENT
You will use the following tools and equipment to perform electrical safety checks.
a. Safety Analyzer Model 232M.
b. Unit to be tested.
In Lesson 1, you learned operational procedures for the safety analyzer. You also
learned the specifications. In this lesson, you will learn how to perform the electrical safety
a. Perform Start up and Self Test on the 232M. Perform the following steps:
(1) Ensure that no equipment is plugged into the test receptacle before
plugging in the unit or turning on the power.
