SPECIFICATIONS NOTES: Accuracy specifications consist of two elements: • (% reading) – This is the accuracy of the measurement circuit. • (+ digits) – This is the accuracy of the analog to digital converter. Accuracy is stated at 65 F to 83 F (18 C to 28 C) and less than...
SPECIFICATIONS Operating Temp F to 104 F (0 C to 40 Storage Temp F to 140 F (-20 C to 60 Relative Humidity Maximum relative humidity 80% for temperatures up to 31°C decreasing linearly to 50% relative humidity at 40°C. Operating Altitude 7000ft (2000 meters) maximum.
BATTERY INSTALLATION WARNING: To avoid electric shock, disconnect the test leads from any source of voltage before removing the battery/fuse cover. 1. Disconnect the test leads from the meter. 2. Remove the rubber holster (if in place). 3. Remove the two screws securing the rear cover using a Phillips head screwdriver.
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. Press the HOLD button to freeze a displayed reading NOTE: On some low AC and DC voltage ranges, with the test leads not connected to a device, the display may show a random, changing reading.
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.
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.
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.
DIODE TEST 1. Insert the black test lead banana plug into the negative COM jack and the red test lead banana plug into the positive diode jack. 2. Turn the function switch to the / •))) position. 3. Touch the test probes to the diode under test.
BATTERY TEST 1. Insert the black test lead banana plug into the negative COM jack and the red test lead banana plug into the positive V jack. 2. Select the 1.5V or 9V BAT position using the function switch. 3. Connect the red test lead to the positive side of the 1.5V or 9V battery and the black test lead to the negative side of the 1.5V or 9V battery.
MAINTENANCE WARNING: To avoid electric shock, disconnect the test leads from any source of voltage before removing the back cover or the battery or fuse cover. WARNING: To avoid electric shock, do not operate your meter until the battery and fuse cover are in place and fastened securely.
REPLACING THE BATTERY WARNING: To avoid electric shock, disconnect the test leads from any source of voltage before removing the battery cover. 1. When the battery become exhausted or drop below the operating voltage, “ ” will appear in the lower left corner of the LCD display.
