How to set up your MF Rectifier Mrk2 for the Spa Plating pen plating process

To get started;
1. Place the rectifier on a firm surface.
2. Ensure the on/off switch at the rear of the rectifier is in the "O" position.
3. Connect the mains socket to an earthed mains socket using the mains cable included.

1. Switch on your rectifier

Switch the rectifier on using the on/off switch at the rear of the rectifier. The switch should now be in the “I” position.

2. The "16v/5A" button

Press and hold the “16v/5A” button until it starts flashing.

3. Setting the current (amps)

Set the current (amps) using the “CURR” dial to anywhere between 1.00 amps and 1.20 amps.

4. Setting the volts

Set the voltage using the “VOLTS” dial to that quoted on your bottle of Spa Plating pen plating solution.

5. Starting the pen plating process

When you are ready to start plating, press the “OUTPUT ON” button which will change from white to green to show the plating tank is powered. The “16v/5A” button will stop flashing.

6. Stopping the pen plating process

When the pen plating process is complete, press the “OUTPUT ON” button which will change from green back to white to show the pen plating circuit is powered off.

Please note that the current (amps) can be very low in the case of pen plating and may be so low (lower than 0.01 amp) that the current (amps) doesn’t register a current flowing – the display atill shows 0.00 amps.
In this case, the only way to check the circuit, is if plating is actually taking place.
