CAT. III: Distribution level, fixed installation, with smaller transient overvoltages than CAT. IV CAT IV:Primary supply level, overhead lines, cable systems etc.

  • Page 6: Rules For Safe Operation

    Model UT60A: OPERATING MANUAL Rules For Safe Operation (1) Warning To avoid possible electric shock or personal injury, and to avoid possible damage to the Meter or to the equipment under test, adhere to the following rules: Before using the Meter inspect the case. Do not use the Meter if it is damaged or the case (or part of the case) is removed.

  • Page 17: Measurement Ranges 14

    Model UT60A: OPERATING MANUAL Measurement Ranges (1) A measurement range determines the highest value the Meter can measure. Most Meter functions have more than one range. See "Accuracy Specifications." A. Selecting a Measurement Range Being in the right measurement range is important: If the range is too low for the input, the Meter displays to indicate an overload.

  • Page 18

    Model UT60A: OPERATING MANUAL Measurement Ranges (2) To enter and exit the manual range mode: Press RANGE. The Meter enters the manual range mode and turns off. Each presses of RANGE increments the range. When the highest range is reached, the Meter wraps to the lowest range.

    Model UT60A: OPERATING MANUAL Measurement Operation (6) Connect the test leads across with the object being measured. The measured value shows on the display. Note The test leads can add 0.1 to 0.2 of error to resistance measurement. To obtain precision readings in low-resistance measurement, that is the range of 400.0 , short-circuit the input terminals...
