Testing and verification
The machine manufacturer or the installer of the UCC BI is responsible for ensuring that the following testing and verification is performed to the appropriate standard:
- Verification that the electrical equipment is in compliance with the technical documentation
- Continuity testing of the protective bonding circuit
- Insulation resistance tests
- Functional tests, particularly those related to safety and safeguarding
NOTE: It is strongly recommended that any measuring equipment is regularly checked for accuracy. An initial ‘pass off' test should be performed prior to normal use.
NOTE: It is recommended that metrology tests should be performed after any update.
WARNING: The system installer should intentionally cause a scale fault (for example: by placing a piece of paper between the readhead and the scale) to check that a scale error is reported during initial set-up and all service and maintenance operations.
