Start-Up and Test

Before using electrical control and automation equipment for regular operation after installation, the system should be given a start up test by qualified personnel to verify correct operation of the equipment. It is important that arrangements for such a check be made and that enough time is allowed to perform complete and satisfactory testing.

  • Verify that all installation and set up procedures have been completed.
  • Before operational tests are performed, remove all blocks or other temporary holding means used for shipment from all component devices.
  • Remove tools, meters and debris from equipment.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, serious injury, or equipment damage.

Follow all start up tests recommended in the equipment documentation. Store all equipment documentation for future references.

Software testing must be done in both simulated and real environments.

Verify that the completed system is free from all short circuits and grounds, except those grounds installed according to local regulations (according to the National Electrical Code in the U.S.A, for instance). If high-potential voltage testing is necessary, follow recommendations in equipment documentation to help prevent from accidental equipment damage.

Before energizing equipment:

  • Remove tools, meters and debris from equipment.

  • Close the equipment enclosure door.

  • Remove ground from incoming power lines.

  • Perform all start-up tests recommended by the manufacturer.
