Manual Tracking

How does it work?
The Manual/Tracking test is used to assess the quality of a mechanical meter without using external accessories, (no accessories needed).
  1. To perform a manual tracking, the meter is energized with a low or high load while the test operator counts the number of disk revolutions.
  2. Once a predefined number (default is 10) of revolutions has been completed, the operator ends the test and an error percentage result is given.
This test does not save data to the device memory.
