The Model CS-1 is a portable, adjustable current supply capable of delivering up to 1.5 amps of DC current depending on load conditions. The output voltage is fixed at 1.7 volts DC making the CS-1 ideal for use as a magnesium anode simulator. The CS-1 has a digital display to show the amount of current impressed and to check the internal DC battery level.
For convenience in the field, the CS-1 Mag Anode Simulator uses 4 replaceable “D” cell batteries to provide current and a replaceable 9 volt battery for the meter display. For best performance Tinker & Rasor recommends the use of alkaline batteries.
Use CS-1 to simulate one Mag. anode in an unprotected area to measure pipe to soil potential levels. Determine size and number of mag. anodes required in a given location for protection.
CS-1 Mag Anode Simulator
On / OFF – Used to turn the CS-1 current and panel meter on and off.
AMPS / VOLTS – To select value to be shown on the digital display. Select AMPS to display current and VOLTS to display the battery level.
NOTE: The output of the CS-1 is regulated at 1.7 volts DC. The "VOLTS" position of the selector knob indicates the status of the internal "D" cell batteries. Replace "D" cell batteries when the display indicates 1.0 volts or less
CURRENT ADJUST – Use to adjust the current applied to the pipe and / or structure.
Using the supplied cables, connect the test lead from the positive (Red) connector on the side of the CS-1 to the pipe or structure under test. Connect the negative (Black) connector from the side of the CS-1 to a good earth ground.
Turn the CS-1 on.
Turn the AMPS / VOLTS switch to AMPS.
The current can now be adjusted to the desired level. The current output can be read on the digital display. Once the CS-1 is satisfactorily connected to the pipe, a pipe-to-soil potential can be conducted to view the results of the connection. The CS-1 simulates one (1) magnesium anode on the system. It should be possible, based upon the results of the pipe-to-soil survey to extrapolate how multiple magnesium anodes would affect the system.
When not in use the test leads can be stored in the CS-1 case.
Battery Replacement To replace the batteries, remove the two Phillips screws located on the control panel of the CS-1. Lift the control panel from the case to access the batteries. See photo below. Click on photo to enlarge. The CS-1 takes Four "C" Cell Batteries and One 9 Volt Battery. T&R Replacements- "C" Cell #010-025, 9 Volt #010-007.
Ninety day warranty on Parts and Labor.
