The AirData Multimeter
is a precision instrument designed for long term field use if given
reasonable care and maintenance. The meter and FlowHood should be
kept reasonably clean, and should be stored in the protective case
when not in use. The meter case and internal components are rugged,
and well able to withstand normal handling. Continued rough handling
will eventually cause damage.
The meter case is water resistant, but is not waterproof. Do not use the
meter in conditions where liquids or corrosive gases might enter the
case or pneumatic inlets.
use or store the meter in temperatures outside the specified ranges. The
meter may seem to tolerate summertime storage in such places as the
trunk of a vehicle, but battery life and other functions will eventually
replacing the batteries, be very careful to insert each cell in
its indicated position for polarity. The polarity position
marking for each cell is embossed in the housing beneath each
cell position. Take note that the cells are not all oriented in
the same way. Failure to observe proper cell positioning can
result in severe damage to the meter.
life will be prolonged if the batteries are periodically permitted to
discharge until the display registers LOW CHARGE or RECHARGE. The
battery charger cord should be coiled in gentle loops rather than wound
tightly around the body of the charger transformer. This will greatly
extend the life of the charger cord.
rechargeable batteries are not available in a field situation, the
batteries may be replaced with 12 non-rechargeable, alkaline "AA" pen
|WARNING: Do not
plug the charger in if any non-rechargeable batteries are in the
meter. The meter may be seriously damaged, along with the
batteries and charger.
attempt to service or repair anything inside the meter will void the
Warranty and may cause serious damage to the sensitive electronic
suggested that the AirData Multimeter be returned to the factory at
least every two years for recalibration, maintenance, and software
update. This will keep the meter up to date with ongoing improvements
and new features as they develop. It will also assure that the original
accuracy of the meter is maintained throughout the life of the meter.
