The Micro 570 Analyzer
The Micro 570 Analyzer provides the ability to test the charging and starting systems, including the battery, starter and alternator.
   
? When working with batteries, always use extreme caution and appropriate eye protection device to prevent injuries.
? When charging battery according to test results, the battery must be fully charged.
To get accurate test result, battery surface voltage must have subsided ahead before test when you test battery after charged. (See following Battery Test Results)

Keypad
The Micro 570 button on the key pad provides the following functions :

Battery Test Procedure
1.
Connect the tester to the battery.
A.
Red clamp to battery positive (+) terminal.
B.
Black clamp to battery negative (-) terminal.

   
Connect clamps securely. If "CHECK CONNECTION" message is displayed on the screen, reconnect clamps securely.
2.
The tester will ask if the battery is connected "IN-VEHICLE" or "OUT-OF-VEHICLE". Make your selection by pressing the arrow buttons; then press ENTER.

3.
Select CCA and press the ENTER button.

   
CCA : Cold cranking amps, is an SAE specification for cranking batteries at -0.4°F (-18°C).
4.
Set the CCA value displayed on the screen to the CCA value marked on the battery label by pressing up and down buttons and press ENTER.

   
The battery ratings(CCA) displayed on the tester must be identical to the ratings marked on battery label.
5.
The tester will conduct battery test.

6.
The tester displays battery test results including voltage and battery ratings.
Refer to the following table and take the appropriate action as recommended by the Micro 570.

Remedy
GOOD BATTERY
No action is required.
GOOD RECHARGE
Battery is in a good state.
Recharge the battery and use.
? You have to follow instruction below when you charge battery and retest, otherwise test result can be inaccurate. (See ‘Charge and Retest method after battery charge’ below.)
CHARGE & RETEST
Battery is not charged properly.
-
Charge and test the battery again.
? You have to follow instruction below when you charge battery and retest, otherwise test result can be inaccurate. (See ‘Charge and Retest method after battery charge’ below.)
REPLACE BATTERY
Replace battery and recheck the charging system.
-
Improper connection between battery and vehicle cables may cause "REPLACE BATTERY". Retest the battery after removing cables and connecting the tester to the battery terminal directly prior to replacing the battery.
BAD CELL-REPLACE
Charge and retest the battery.
-
If the Micro 570 recommends "REPLACE BATTERY", replace the battery and recheck the charging system.

[Charge and Retest method after battery charge]
Battery charge
Set battery charger to ‘Auto Mode’ (the mode under which charging current drops as the battery is charged.) and charge battery until charging current becomes close to zero or the charger alerts you with an alarm when charging is completed.
(Minimum charging time recommended: More than 3 hours with Auto Mode)
A.
If battery is not fully charged, battery surface voltage will be high while the amount of current charged (CCA) in battery is low. If you measure the battery under this condition, tester may misjudge that battery sulfation occurred because the amount of current in battery is too low in comparison with battery voltage.
* Surface voltage: When battery is charged electrolyte temperature increases and chemical reaction becomes active resulting in an excessive increase of battery voltage.
It is known to take about one day for this increased surface voltage to subside completely.
Battery Test after charging
Do not test battery right after the charge. Test battery after battery surface voltage has subsided as instructed in the following procedure.
(1)
When battery charge is complete, install the battery in the vehicle.
(2)
Put IG key to ON position and turn on head lamp with low beam, and wait 5 minutes. (Discharge for 5 minutes)
(3)
Turn off the head lamp and IG key, and wait 5 minutes. (Waiting for 5 minutes after the IG key OFF)
(4)
Remove +, - cable from the battery and then test the battery.
   
Whenever filing a claim for battery, the printout of the battery test results must be attached.
Starter Test Procedure
7.
After the battery test, press ENTER immediately for the starter test.

8.
Start the engine.

9.
Cranking voltage and starter test results will be displayed on the screen.
Refer to the following table and take the appropriate action as recommended by the Micro 570.

Starter Test Results
Result On Printer
Remedy
CRANKING VOLTAGE NORMAL
System shows a normal starter draw.
CRANKING VOLTAGE LOW
Cranking voltage is lower than normal level.
-
Check starter.
CHARGE BATTERY
The state of battery charge is too low to test.
-
Charge the battery and retest.
REPLACE BATTERY
Replace battery.
-
If the vehicle does not start though the battery condition of "GOOD BATTERY" is displayed, check wiring for open circuit, battery cable connection, starter and repair or replace as necessary.
-
If the engine does crank, check fuel system.

   
When testing the vehicle with old diesel engines, the test result will not be favorable if the glow plug is not heated. Conduct the test after warming up the engine for 5 minutes.

The MDX-670P Analyzer
The MDX-670P battery conductance and electrical system analyzer tests batteries as well as starting and charging systems for vehicle.
It displays the test results in seconds and features a built-in printer to provide a copy of the results.

   
1.
When working with batteries, always use extreme caution and appropriate eye protection device to prevent injuries.
2.
When charging battery according to test results, the battery must be fully charged. To get accurate test result, battery surface voltage must have subsided ahead before test when you test battery after charged. (See following Battery Test Results)
   
When testing the vehicle with old diesel engines, the test result will not be favorable if the glow plug is not heated. Conduct the test after warming up the engine for 5 minutes.

1.
Connect the red clamp to the positive (+) terminal and the black clamp to the negative (–) terminal.
   
For a proper connection, rock the clamps back and forth. The tester requires that both sides of each clamp be firmly connected before testing. A poor connection will produce a CHECK CONNECTION or WIGGLE CLAMPS message. If the message appears, clean the terminals and reconnect the clamps.
2.
Scroll to and select IN VEHICLE or OUT OF VEHICLE for a battery not connected to a vehicle.

   
Following an IN VEHICLE test you will be prompted to test the starting and charging systems.
3.
Scroll to and select REGULAR FLOODED, AGM FLAT PLATE, or AGM SPIRAL where applicable.

   
If the vehicle is equipped with ISG function, select the AGM FLAT PLATE.
4.
Scroll to and select the battery’s rating system.
   
Mostly, the CCA value is marked on the battery label, but sometimes marked EN or SEA value. Select one of them.

A.
CCA: Cold Cranking Amps, as specified by SAE. The most common rating for cranking batteries at 0 ?F (–17.8 ?C).
B.
EN: Europe-Norm
C.
SAE: Society of Automotive Engineers, the European labeling of CCA
5.
Set the selected rating value displayed on the screen to the value marked on the battery label by pressing up and down arrow buttons.

6.
Press ENTER to start test.
