    Safety Guidelines

    spd-note-caution
    Caution  

    Do not operate the FD-11614 in a manner not specified in this user guide. Product misuse can result in a hazard. You can compromise the safety protection built into the product if the product is damaged in any way. If the product is damaged, return it to National Instruments for repair.

    spd-note-caution
    Attention  

    Le FD-11614 ne doit en aucun cas être utilisé d'une autre façon que celle spécifiée dans ce guide de l'utilisateur. Une mauvaise utilisation du produit peut s'avérer dangereuse. Si le produit est endommagé de quelque manière que ce soit, la sécurité intégrée dans le produit risque d'être compromise. Si le produit est endommagé, renvoyez-le à National Instruments pour réparation.

    The FD-11614 is rated for use in DRY or WET LOCATIONS. Hazardous voltages may not be connected to the device. A hazardous voltage is a voltage greater than 42.4 V peak voltage or 60 V DC in DRY LOCATIONS, and 22.6 V peak or 35 V DC in WET LOCATIONS.

    spd-note-caution
    Caution  

    All wiring must be insulated for the highest voltage used.

    spd-note-caution
    Attention  

    Tout le câblage doit être isolé pour la plus haute tension utilisée.

    Safety Voltages

    Connect only voltages that are within the following limits:

    Channel-to-channel isolation

    Continuous working voltage[1]

    60 V DC (Dry Locations); 35 V DC (Wet Locations)

    Transient overvoltage[2]

    1,000 V RMS, verified by 5 s withstand

    Channel-to-earth ground isolation

    Continuous working voltage

    60 V DC (Dry Locations); 35 VDC (Wet Locations)

    Transient overvoltage

    1,000 V RMS, verified by 5 s withstand

    Overvoltage protection[3]

    ±30 V between TC+ and TC-

    These test and measurement circuits are not rated for measurements performed on circuits directly connected to the electrical distribution system referred to as MAINS.

    MAINS is a hazardous live electrical supply system to which equipment is designed to be connected to for the purpose of powering equipment. This product is rated for measurements of voltages from specially protected secondary circuits. Such voltage measurements include signal levels, special equipment, limited-energy parts of equipment, circuits powered by regulated low-voltage sources, and electronics.

    spd-note-warnings
    Warning  

    Do not connect the FD-11614 to signals or use for measurements within Measurement Categories II, III, or IV, or for measurements on MAINs circuits or on circuits derived from Overvoltage Category II, III, or IV which may have transient overvoltages above what the product can withstand. The product must not be connected to circuits that have a maximum voltage above the continuous working voltage, relative to earth or to other channels, or this could damage and defeat the insulation. The product can only withstand transients up to the transient overvoltage rating without breakdown or damage to the insulation. An analysis of the working voltages, loop impedances, temporary overvoltages, and transient overvoltages in the system must be conducted prior to making measurements.

    spd-note-warnings
    Mise en garde  

    Ne connectez pas le FD-11614 à des signaux dans les catégories de mesure II, III ou IV et ne l'utilisez pas pour des mesures dans ces catégories, ou des mesures sur secteur ou sur des circuits dérivés de surtensions de catégorie II, III ou IV pouvant présenter des surtensions transitoires supérieures à ce que le produit peut supporter. Le produit ne doit pas être raccordé à des circuits ayant une tension maximale supérieure à la tension de fonctionnement continu, par rapport à la terre ou à d'autres voies, sous risque d'endommager et de compromettre l'isolation. Le produit risque de tomber en panne et son isolation risque d'être endommagée si les tensions transitoires dépassent la surtension transitoire nominale. Une analyse des tensions de fonctionnement, des impédances de boucle, des surtensions temporaires et des surtensions transitoires dans le système doit être effectuée avant de procéder à des mesures.
