SAFETY PRECAUTIONS REQUIRED WHEN TESTING
AND/OR CALIBRATING FUEL QUANTITY SYSTEM
DO NOT USE ANY FUEL QUANTITY
TESTER OTHER THAN THE
PSD60-1AF with this procedure. The
PSD60-1AF is battery-powered, and
therefore inherently safe. Testers
powered by 115 vac require voltage
and ground continuity tests which are
not required by the PSD60-1AF.
ALWAYS GROUND THE TESTER to
a good, clean aircraft ground. DO
NOT CONNECT ground wire behind
circuit breaker panels or near any
exposed power termination. Failure
to comply could result in a fuel tank
explosion or fire, and serious injury
NEVER CONNECT a fuel gauge or
signal conditioner unit to an electrically
live connector. Such practice may be
a hazard to the aircraft and personnel,
and may damage the gauge or SCU.
If a circuit breaker pops during
calibration or troubleshooting, a short
circuit is indicated. Refer to FAULT
ISOLATION PROCEDURES and
correct fault before reapplying power.
USE ONLY AUTHORIZED TEST
EQUIPMENT to test, troubleshoot,
and calibrate the fuel quantity system.
Shop testers, including multimeters
and meggers, are NOT CERTIFIED
SAFE for use on any wiring to the fuel
tank. Failure to comply could result
in a fuel tank explosion or fire, and
serious injury to personnel.
Always ground the aircraft under
test to earth ground per approved
procedures. Failure to comply could
result in a fuel tank explosion or fire,
and could result in serious injury to
DO NOT attempt to calibrate a fuel
quantity system that has a known
APU causes dangerous noise levels.
Wear appropriate hearing protection.
