    Hold the top of the meter very close to the voltage source as shown. If voltage is present, the rim of the LCD display will flash a bright orange and an audible warning will sound. EX330-EU-ENG – V4.2 1/08...
  • Page 7 Touch the red test probe tip to the “hot” side of circuit. Read the voltage in the display. If the measured AC voltage exceeds the highest range of the meter (refer to the specification table) an audible tone will sound. EX330-EU-ENG – V4.2 1/08...
  • Page 8 Insert the red test lead banana plug into the positive V jack. Touch the black test probe tip to the negative side of the circuit. Touch the red test probe tip to the positive side of the circuit. Read the voltage in the display. EX330-EU-ENG – V4.2 1/08...
  • Page 9 Touch the black test probe tip to the negative side of the circuit. Touch the red test probe tip to the positive side of the circuit. Apply power to the circuit. Read the current in the display. EX330-EU-ENG – V4.2 1/08...
  • Page 10 Touch the test probe tips to the circuit or wire you wish to check. If the resistance is less than approximately 100Ω, the audible signal will sound. If the circuit is ‘open’ (bad), the display will indicate “OL”. EX330-EU-ENG – V4.2 1/08...
  • Page 11 Touch the test leads to the capacitor to be tested. The test may take up to 3 minutes or more for large capacitors to charge. Wait until the readings settle before ending the test. Read the capacitance value in the display EX330-EU-ENG – V4.2 1/08...
  • Page 12 Allow 30 seconds for the display to stabilize. Read the temperature in the display. Note: The temperature range of the supplied thermocouple probe is -20 to 250°C (-4 to 482°F) EX330-EU-ENG – V4.2 1/08...
  • Page 13 The meter will automatically turn off after 15 minutes of inactivity. This will conserve battery energy. To turn the meter on after an Auto Power OFF, simply turn the rotary switch to OFF and then back to the desired setting. EX330-EU-ENG – V4.2 1/08...
  • Page 14 TYPE. Remove old or weak batteries so they do not leak and damage the unit. IF THE METER IS TO BE STORED FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME, the batteries should be removed to prevent damage to the unit. EX330-EU-ENG – V4.2 1/08...
