The HB Series 2 machines are some of our most popular but can be tricky to master when it comes to their voltage readings. When troubleshooting, it’s much easier to identify your problem when you know what voltage each terminal is supposed to have—and what each terminal is responsible for.
To keep your machine up and running, I created a quick “cheat sheet” that includes the voltage readings you should expect to see on your HB Series 2. Before reading it, here are a few tips to keep in mind:
- When checking voltage in the lower controls, the black wire from the hour meter is a good source for your ground.
- If you use the battery on the lower control side of the machine, you are only using a 12V ground and won’t get a proper 24V reading.
Even if your machine is running properly, be sure to keep this sheet handy for QA checks. If your machine is down and the voltage is off, give me a call at 262-297-5195 and we’ll get you back up and running.
