A "XWWarning" statement identifies hazardous conditions and actions that could cause bodily harm or death.
A "WCaution" statement identifies conditions and actions that could damage the Meter or the equipment under test.
To avoid possible electric shock or personal injury, follow these guidelines:
Use the Meter only as specified in this manual or the protection provided by the Meter might
Do not use the Meter or test leads if they appear damaged, or if the Meter is not operating
Always use proper terminals, switch position, and range for measurements.
Verify the Meter's operation by measuring a known voltage. If in doubt, have the Meter
Do not apply more than the rated voltage, as marked on Meter, between terminals or
between any terminal and earth ground.
Use caution with voltages above 30 V ac rms, 42 V ac peak, or 60 V dc. These voltages pose
a shock hazard.
Disconnect circuit power and discharge all high-voltage capacitors before testing
resistance, continuity, diodes, or capacitance.
Do not use the Meter around explosive gas or vapor.
When using test leads or probes, keep your fingers behind the finger guards.
Only use test leads that have the same voltage, category, and amperage ratings as the meter
and that have been approved by a safety agency.
Remove test leads from Meter before opening the battery door or Meter case.
