Safety Information
• This manual contains information and warnings that must be
followed for operating the instrument safely and maintaining the
instrument in a safe operating condition. If the instrument is used in
a manner not specified by the manufacturer, the protection provided
by the instrument may be impaired.
• The meter is intended only for indoor use.
• The meter protection rating, against the users, is double insulation
per IEC 61010-1 2nd Ed., EN 61010-1 2nd Ed., Category III 1000 Volts
AC & DC and Category IV 600 Volts AC & DC.
• Disconnect the test leads from the test points before changing the
position of the function rotary switch.
• Never connect a source of voltage with the function rotary switch in
e, E, , μA, position.
• Do not expose Meter to extremes in temperature or high humidity.
• Never set the meter in e, E, , μA, function to measure the voltage
of a power supply circuit in equipment that could result in damage
the meter and the equipment under test.

Measurement category:
V : Category III 1000 Volts AC & DC, and Category IV 600 Volts AC & DC.
A : Category III 1000 Volts AC & DC, and Category IV 600 Volts AC & DC.
Per IEC 61010-1 2nd Ed. (2001) Measurement Category
Measurement Category IV (CAT IV) is for measurements performed at the
source of the low-voltage installation. Examples are electricity meters and
measurements on primary overcurrent protection devices and ripple control
units.
Measurement Category III (CAT III) is for measurements performed in
the building installation. Examples are measurements on distribution
boards, circuit- breakers, wiring, including cables, bus-bars, junction
boxes, switches, socket-outlets in the fixed installation, and equipment for
industrial use and some other equipment, for example, stationary motors
with permanent connection to the fixed installation.
�WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this product to
rain or moisture. To avoid electrical shock hazard, observe the proper
safety precautions when working with voltages above 60 VDC or 30 VAC
rms. These voltage levels pose a potential shock hazard to the user. Do not
touch test lead tips or the circuit being tested while power is applied to the
circuit being measured. Keep your fingers behind the finger guards of the
test leads during measurement. Inspect test leads, connectors,
and probes for damaged insulation or exposed metal before using the
instrument. If any defects are found, replace them immediately. Only use
the accompanied test leads, or replace with the same rating or better.

Making Basic Measurements
�CAUTION
Before and after hazardous voltage measurements, test the voltage
function on a known source such as line voltage to determine proper meter
functioning.
When connecting the test leads to the EUT (Equipment Under Test) connect
the common test lead before connecting the live lead; when removing the
test leads, remove the test live lead before removing the common test lead.

�WARNING
To avoid electrical shock, hazard or damage to meter, do not attempt to
measurement that might exceed 1000 V DC or AC RMS. Do not apply more
than 1000 V DC or AC RMS to the input terminals.
Note - If the measured voltage is higher than 30 V DC or AC RMS, the

Step2. Connect the Red test lead to the Line conductor, and the Black
test lead to the Neutral conductor.
Step3. Press the trigger to open the transformer jaws and clamp one
conductor only, make sure that the jaw is firmly closed around the
conductor.
Step4. Using the Navigator key to choose the “W/PF” mode.
Note :
• The “ + ” symbol on the jaw must face on the power source side.
• In AutoSense mode, the meter will displays ACW/DCW depends on if
there is AC frequency detected.
• ACD-50NAV, ACD-51NAV and ACD-53NAV offer AC power
measurement mode only.
Active power sign :
No sign : Indicates the power flows from the power source to the load.
“_” sign : Indicates the power flows from the load to the power source.
Power factor sign :
No sign : The phase of the current signal is lagging behind the voltage
signal (inductive load).
“_” sign : The phase of the current signal is leading the voltage signal
(capacitive load).
Overrange display :
OL.U : Voltage overload
OL.A : Current overload

Note: If the followings occur, the meter will not be able to
determine the line phase:
The screen displays “OLU” and blinking: voltage > 1000V
The screen displays “LoU” and blinking: voltage < 30V
The screen displays “outF” and blinking: frequency > 65Hz or < 45Hz
Step 4. When the BUZZER beeps twice, change one of the test lead
to another line conductor within 3 seconds
The screen will display the result as below:
a) If it displays “ 1 2 3 “, then the phase sequence is forward
sequence
b) If it displays “ 3 2 1 ”, then the phase sequence is reversed
sequence
14
c) When displayed “- - - - “ means it is unable to determine line
phases.
d) If it displays “LoU”, it is possible that you remove the test leads
before the meter completing its testing procedures.
Step 5. To repeat the test, using the Navigator key and choose the
“

stability within ±1°C. In addition, the temperature probe has
to be connected to meter for more than 1 hour before taking
measurement.

MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR
�CAUTION
To avoid electrical shock, disconnect the meter from any circuit, remove the
test leads from the input jacks and turn OFF the meter before opening the
case. Do not operate with open case. Install only the same type of battery
or equivalent
Trouble Shooting
If the instrument fails to operate, check battery, leads, etc., and replace
as necessary. Double check operating procedure as described in this user’s
manual. If the instrument voltage-resistance input terminal has subjected
to high voltage transient (caused by lightning or switching surge to the
system) by accident or abnormal conditions of operation, the series fusible
resistors will be blown off (become high impedance) like fuses to protect
the user and the instrument. Most measuring functions through this
terminal will then be open circuit. The series fusible resistors and the spark
gaps should then be replaced by qualified technician. Refer to the LIMITED
WARRANTY section for obtaining warranty or repairing service.
Cleaning and Storage
Periodically wipe the case with a damp cloth and mild detergent; do not
use abrasives or solvents. If the meter is not to be used for periods of
longer than 60 days, remove the battery and store it separately.
Battery Replacement
1. Remove test leads and turn the Meter OFF.
2. Loosen the screw from the battery access door of the case. Lift the
battery access door and thus the battery compartment up.
3. Replace the battery (9V alkaline battery NEDA1604A, JIS6AM6 or
IEC6LF22).
4. Put the battery access door back and re-fasten the screw.
27
�CAUTION
Remove test leads from Meter before opening the battery cover or Meter
case.
