What can PowerScan PS100 do and how to use?
There are four working modes for Autel PS100 to diagnose the electrical systems, which can be accessed by depressing the Mode Button and cycling through each one.
- Mode 1: DC Voltage
- Mode 2: AC Voltage
- Mode 3: Resistance
- Mode 4: Tone On/Off
Before diagnosis, supply vehicle battery power firstly.
-Connect the PS100 battery hookup clips (red clip and black clip) to the vehicle battery as follows.
1.DC Voltage testing:
While the tool in this mode, contact the probe tip to a circuit, then the LCD display will read the DC voltage with a resolution of 0.1 volt.
When test the positive electrode, the screen of PS100 displays red.
When test the negative electrode, the screen of PS100 displays green.
2.AC Voltage testing:
While the tool in this mode, contact the probe tip to a circuit, then the LCD display will read the Max. voltage, the Min. voltage, frequency, and duty cycle.
1). When waveform displays, then you can clear at a glance.
2).Continuity Testing- Resistance measurement
3).PS100 outputs positive/negative electricity, the light bulb is on.
5).Testing trailer lights and connections via OBD, cigarette lighter power supply mode
While the tool in this mode, contact the probe tip to a circuit, then the LCD display will read the resistance between the tip and auxiliary ground lead.
While the tool in this mode, just do a quick press of the mode button to toggle the tone on or off. While quickly pressing (a quick press and release) the mode button, if a short high beep is heard, this means the audio tone is turned on. If a short low beep is heard, the audio tone is turned off.
This function is invaluable when working in bright areas where LED illumination alone is not sufficient. The audio feature may be disengaged when desired, such as for applications where the tool will be connected to circuits for long periods of time and the audio could become annoying.
