Continuity Monitor For Cable testing

Continuity Monitor For Cable testing

Product code: MONITORDIY

Availability: In stock

Quick Overview:

The heating elements are tough but they could be damaged on the job site. We recommend the installation monitor (wire fault indicator) to monitor your cable or mats during every installation step.

The installation monitor will immediately warn you in the event of damage. If the alarm sounds, stop working and check operation step in the installation manual.

For further information please see Product Description below.



Continuity Tester

The following instructions are very important before commencing installation:

  • Clip the brown or red wire of the element cold tail to L1 (red lead)
  • Clip the blue or black wire of the element cold tail to L2 (black lead)
  • Clip both green wires of the element cold tail to the green lead of the tester
  • Switch the tester on
  • A red light then shows that the tester is on and working
  • If you have a fault, the tester will start "beeping". If there is no "beep" you can continue with the installation
  • If the beep sounds at any time, before or during installation, "STOP IMMEDIATELY" as this means that damage has occured to the element and you will need to contact an electrician for repair
  • Once you have finished the installation and before you can start tiling reconnect the tester and turn on
  • Keep the tester on until your tiling is complete
  • If the tester light turns off you will need to replace the batteries
