Safety Information
A Warning identifies conditions and procedures that are dangerous to the user. A Caution
identifies conditions and procedures that could cause damage to the Product or the
equipment under test.
International electrical symbols used on the Product and in this manual are explained in Table 1.
Warning
To prevent possible electrical shock, fire, or personal injury:
2
•
Carefully read all instructions.
•
Use the Product only as specified, or the protection supplied by the
Product can be compromised.
•
Use only correct measurement category (CAT), voltage, and amperage
rated probes, test leads, and adapters for the measurement.
•
Do not touch voltages > 30 V ac rms, 42 V ac peak, or 60 V dc.
Clamp Meter
Safety Information
•
Hold the Product behind the tactile barrier. See The Clamp Meter item ①.
•
Do not use test leads if they are damaged. Examine the test leads for
damaged insulation or exposed metal. Check test lead continuity.
•
Do not measure current while the test leads are in the input jacks.
•
Do not use the Product around explosive gas, vapor, or in damp or wet
environments.
•
Limit operation to the specified measurement category, voltage, or
amperage ratings.
•
Do not work alone.
•
Do not apply more than the rated voltage, between the terminals or
between each terminal and earth ground.
•
Comply with local and national safety codes. Use personal protective
equipment (approved rubber gloves, face protection, and flame-resistant
clothes) to prevent shock and arc blast injury where hazardous live
conductors are exposed.
•
Replace the batteries when the low battery indicator shows to prevent
incorrect measurements.
•
The battery door must be closed and locked before you operate the
Product.

•
Measure a known voltage first to make sure that the Product operates
correctly.
•
Use only probes, test leads, and adapters supplied with the Product.
•
Remove all probes, test leads, and accessories that are not necessary
for the measurement.
•
Keep fingers behind the finger guards on the probes.
•
Connect the common test lead before the live test lead and remove the
live test lead before the common test lead.

Safety Information
•
Do not use the Product if it is damaged.
•
Do not use the Product if it operates incorrectly.
•
Before each use, examine the Product. Look for cracks or missing
pieces of the clamp housing. Also look for loose or weakened
components. Carefully examine the insulation around the Jaws.
•
Examine the case before you use the Product. Look for cracks or
missing plastic. Carefully look at the insulation around the terminals.
•
Read all safety Information before you use the Product.
•
Remove batteries to prevent battery leakage and damage to the Product
if it is not used for an extended period.
•
Remove batteries to prevent battery leakage and damage to the Product
if is to be stored above its operating temperature.
•
Do not use a current measurement as an indication that a circuit is safe
to touch. A voltage measurement is necessary to know if a circuit is
hazardous.
