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 the 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
To avoid false readings that can lead to electric shock and injury, replace the battery as soon
as the low battery indicator ( ) appears.
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.
Remove test leads from the Meter before opening the battery door or the Meter case.
