hazard(s) or die.
Caution---identifies conditions and actions that will pose
hazard(s) or damage the tester.
Danger
● This test instrument unit is suitable for using under single phase
230V+10%-15%.(Operational Voltage Scope: 195 – 253 V)
● To avoid possible electric shock or personal inquiry. Do not use the
test instrument or test leads if they appear damaged or metal part is
exposed, or if test instrument is not operating properly. If in doubt,
please contact the instrument serviced.

UT581/582 INSTRUCTION MANUAL
● Do not use your finger to touch on any testing cable during the testing
stage.
● Put off the test leads after testing complete. P.S. test leads can not
always plugs on the test instrument.
Warning
● Do not open or disassemble the tester un-intentionally during the
measurement, it has a high voltage inside and cause a danger for the
user. If it needs service repairing, please contact our after-sales
services or our agents.
● If the test instrument appear abnormal ( for example, no completed
display, incorrect calculation, housing damage, noise issue during
the measurement etc….). please contact our after-sales services or
our agents.
● Do not use the tester if your hands are in wet.

Certified One) insert into the corresponding port in order to provide a
safe before measurement. It is not encourage to use third parties test
lead probe on our tester.
● Do not expose the tester in extreme temperature and wet environment.
● Soft cloth and mild detergent should be used to clean the surface of
the tester. No abrasive and solvent should be used when servicing.
● Dry the tester before storing if it is wet.

5. Measurements
5.1 Test Lead Connection
Test terminal is / are for connecting the correct lead of the tested
installation: L to L(Live); N to N(Neutral); E to E(Earthing).
5.2 Test Lead Checking
After connected the test leads with the testers, please plug the power
cable on (220V/50Hz current socket), so you can 3-LED lamp
whether it is correct. If P-E & P-N are displayed green signal light, but
the red color LED do not light up. It is in good normal condition. If
not, it may be incorrectly connect with P and N. You need to put off
those test leads and check it then plug into the correct one.
Connecting inadequately terminal P & terminal N during the measurement
it may cause to have a leakage.
Caution:Please check all the relative terminal and settle down it, you
can continue the next measurement.

Danger
● If the connecting measurement is incorrect, please don’t proceed the
next measurement (press TEST button). Otherwise, it causes
measuring result incorrect or in other dangerous.
5.3 Press I△n button switch, it causes RCD breakers for the nominal
residual currents (I△n) as the previous trip current in constant

(5.4.2 ) to get the fast connecting time.
5.4.4 Need to phase switch and repeated the Step (5.4.2).
Warning
● Do not use the tester if it is damaged or metal part is exposed.
● During the long hours and continually use, the tester may arise in
more heating and cause to the unit damage or / and other danger
arises, so we do not encourge to use in long hours and it is used on
sample random testing purpose only.
● Connecting current 300mA / 500 mA (Main current connecting
measurement) measure need to have at least 5-minutes variation for
next new measurement.
