    BATTERY INSTALLATION WARNING: To avoid electric shock, disconnect the test leads from any source of voltage before removing the battery door. 1. Disconnect the test leads from the meter. 2. Remove the protective rubber holster (if installed). 3. Open the battery door by loosening the screw using a Phillips head screwdriver.

  • Page 10: Operating Instructions

    OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS WARNING: Risk of electrocution. High-voltage circuits, both AC and DC, are very dangerous and should be measured with great care. 1. ALWAYS turn the function switch to the OFF position when the meter is not in use. 2. If “OL” appears in the display during a measurement, the value exceeds the range you have selected.

  • Page 11: Ac Voltage Measurements

    AC VOLTAGE MEASUREMENTS WARNING: Risk of Electrocution. The probe tips may not be long enough to contact the live parts inside some 240V outlets for appliances because the contacts are recessed deep in the outlets. As a result, the reading may show 0 volts when the outlet actually has voltage on it.

  • Page 12: Dc Current Measurements

    DC CURRENT MEASUREMENTS CAUTION: Do not make current measurements on the 10A scale for longer than 30 seconds. Exceeding 30 seconds may cause damage to the meter and/or the test leads. 1. Insert the black test lead banana plug into the negative (COM) jack.

  • Page 13: Resistance Measurements

    RESISTANCE MEASUREMENTS WARNING: To avoid electric shock, disconnect power to the unit under test and discharge all capacitors before taking any resistance measurements. Remove the batteries and unplug the line cords. 1. Set the function switch to the highest $# position. 2.
