This article will go through the process in which you start up the compressor.
Starting the Compressor
Please do the following:
- Make sure that the mains voltage corresponds to the electrical data on the rating plate. The permissible variance amounts to no more than 5 %.
- Make sure that the On/Off switch (3) is set to the “OFF 0” position (see Fig. G).
- Make sure that the drain cock (10) for condensed water is closed (see Fig. A above).
- Check the oil level at the viewing window of the oil drain plug (13) and, if necessary, add oil.
- Connect the mains plug to a properly installed socket with earthing contact.
- Connect a pneumatic tool to one of the two quick couplings (14 / 16) so that it audibly locks into place (see Fig. A above). The adjustable control pressure can be determined on the left quick coupling and the uncontrolled tank pressure can be determined on the right quick coupling.
- Set the On/Off switch to the “ON 1” position by pulling it out slightly (see Fig. G). The compressor has now been switched on and is starting up.
- Turn the pressure regulator (15) (see Fig. A): • clockwise to increase the control pressure, • anticlockwise to decrease the control pressure. You can read the set control pressure on the control pressure gauge (17).
- You can read the pressure of the air contained in the compressed air tank (8) on the tank pressure gauge (18).
- The tank pressure is not controlled, that is, it cannot be adjusted.
- Push the On/Off switch down so that it is set to the “OFF 0” position to switch the compressor off.
- If you no longer wish to use the compressor, pull the mains plug out of the socket.
- Vent the compressor via the connected pneumatic tool.
- Take the pneumatic tool off of the compressor by slightly pushing the quick coupling back and pulling the pneumatic tool off (see Fig. A).
- Let the compressor cool off completely.
- Clean the compressor.
