DT-15 OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
(Use any good quality standard 9V battery)
A. Remove the screws from the rear cover.
C. Snap the battery clip onto the battery and insert the battery into the retaining clip.
D. Replace the rear cover and screws.
With a fresh, good quality battery, your instrument should operate approximately 50 hours. When it is time to replace the battery, the words "LO BAT" will appear in the upper left corner of the display.
The DT-15 fuel tester is designed to detect the addition of oxidizers to a gas/oil fuel mix. This is done by comparing the resistivity and the dielectric constant of a competitors fuel to a known base. Fuel with oxidizers added (such as methanol, nitro, etc.) will cause the instrument to register more positive than the base. This indicates some type of additive in the competitors fuel.
NOTE: Cyclohexane (C6H12) is the base called for by both I.K.F. and W.K.A. You will need to have some available before you begin testing. Cyclohexane is available from Precision Automotive Research (630) 766-4402 or VP Racing Fuels (210) 635-7744.
If you are unable to obtain cyclohexane an alternate method of testing is to mix a known legal gas with a commonly used oil, set the meter at zero in that mixture and allow no more than a 5 point deviation either way. ( This method will not be as accurate as using the cyclohexane base.)
Note: When adjusting the reading in the cyclohexane, or in the fuel samples to be tested, gently swirl the sensor to release any trapped air bubbles. Air trapped in the sensor can cause inaccurate readings.
If a fuel sample tests illegal, the following procedure should be used.
During the course of the day you should check the instrument reading in the cyclohexane ( should read -075) about every 30 minutes and re adjust as necessary to compensate for changes in temperature. For highest accuracy try to keep the cyclohexane as close as possible to the fuel in the karts coming off the track.
Your instrument is warranted to be free from factory defects and electronic failure for a period of one (1) year from date of purchase. Physical damage during normal usage is not covered under the warranty. Be sure to fill out and return your warranty card for our records. If you do not have a card on file for your instrument, repairs will be charged for unless you can provide us with proof of purchase date.
When returning an instrument to us for repair, be sure to enclose a note indicating your return address, your phone number and a good description of the problem. If you are not sure whether the problem is in your instrument or the sensor return both so we can check the complete system.
There will be a $20.00 minimum charge on any instrument that is out of warranty. We will automatically contact you with an estimate before proceeding with repairs if charges exceed $50.00 Repairs can be paid for by VISA, MASTERCARD, or C.O.D.
If you need your instrument back in time for a specific race be sure to include the date you need it, and we will do our best to get it back to you in time. Repairs will normally be completed within ten working days.
