Test Electrical Panel Convenience Outlets (CLS only)
ELECTRICITY CAN KILL YOU. The latrine is a wet environment capable of poising an
electrical shock hazard when personnel have direct contact with energized wires or metal
parts. Electricity is unlike most hazards; its effect is immediate. Failure to use extreme
caution may result in serious injury or death to personnel.
1. Locate convenience outlets A/B (1).
2. Using a multimeter set to read at least 250VAC, check for power between the neutral and hot
receptacle inlet (2). There should be approximately 115VAC between the two receptacle inlets.
3. Use a multimeter set to read at least 250VAC to check for power at ground inlet (3). There should be
no power reading between neutral receptacle inlet (2) and the ground inlet.
4. If convenience outlets A/B (1) pass steps 2. and 3. successfully, no further testing is required. If not,
disconnect power at circuit breakers #7 and #8 by setting the breakers to the OFF position and
proceed to the next step.
5. Remove screws (4) from faceplate (5) and remove gasket and faceplate.
6. Remove two screws (6) holding outlet (1) to container.
7. Pull outlet (1) out enough to provide access to the wires (7).
8. Reset circuit breaker #7 or #8, as appropriate, to the ON position.
9. Tag and disconnect wires (7), and remove outlet (4).
10. Use a multimeter set to read at least 250VAC, check for power between each pole (8). If no power
exists between poles (8), contact Direct Support. If power exists between poles, replace outlet.
11. Place outlet (1) into position.
12. Reconnect wires (7) as tagged.
13. Install and tighten two screws (6) holding outlet (1) to container.
14. Place gasket and faceplate (5) into position and retaining with screws (4).
15. Turn breakers #8 and #7 to ON.
16. Turn main breaker to ON.
17. Repeat steps 2. and 3.
