SHARK SHIELD FUNCTIONAL TESTING PROCEDURE
Turn Shark Shield on.
The Shark Shield Unit being tested should be charged before testing.
After diagnostic sequence, the green LED on Shark Shield will start blinking.
Prepare the Shark Shield unit for testing placing it so both electrodes are coiled within close proximity of each other but NOT TOUCHING.
Ensure test tips are securely on the end of the leads
Place one probe on each of the electrodes (This can be seen as silver material under the black braided cover) ensuring a good clean contact is made.
LED on the Shark Shield will go to solid green, meaning the circuit is complete and the unit is operating as it would in sea water mode.
LED’s on the text box will pulse (flash) between + and – every half second and the Green LED on the Shark Shield unit is steady (not blinking)
This is the normal operation under load and verifies that there is no damage to the antenna and the Shark Shield is operating correctly.
IF THIS DOES NOT OCCUR DO NOT USE THE UNIT AND RETURN IT TO SHARK SHIELD IMMEDIATELY FOR SERVICING/REPAIR
