SAFETY NOTES
• Do not exceed the maximum allowable input range of any
function
• Do not apply voltage to meter when resistance function is
selected.
• Set the function switch OFF when the meter is not in use.
WARNINGS
• Set function switch to the appropriate position before
measuring.
• When measuring volts do not switch to current/resistance
modes.
• When changing ranges using the selector switch always
disconnect the test leads from the circuit under test.
• Do not exceed the maximum rated input limits.

CAUTIONS
Improper use of this meter can cause damage, shock, injury or
death. Read and understand this user manual before operating
the meter.
Always remove the test leads before replacing the battery.
Inspect the condition of the test leads and the meter itself for
any damage before operating the meter. Repair or replace any
damage before use.
Use great care when making measurements if the voltages are
greater than 25VAC rms or 35VDC. These voltages are
considered a shock hazard.
Remove the battery if the meter is to be stored for long periods.
Always discharge capacitors and remove power from the
device under test before performing Diode, Resistance or
Continuity tests.
• Voltage checks on electrical outlets can be difficult and
misleading because of the uncertainty of connection to the
recessed electrical contacts. Other means should be used to
ensure that the terminals are not "live".
• If the equipment is used in a manner not specified by the
manufacturer, the protection provided by the equipment may
be impaired.

Operation
NOTICES: Read and understand all warning and precaution
statements listed in the safety section of this
operation manual prior to using this meter. Set the
function select switch to the OFF position when the
meter is not in use.
AC Current Measurements
WARNING: Ensure that the test leads are
disconnected from the meter before making current
clamp measurements.
1. Set the Function switch to the 400 or 40A range.
2. If the range of the measured is not
known, select the higher range
first then move to the lower
range if necessary.
3. Press the trigger to open jaw.
Fully enclose one conductor
to be measured.
The clamp meter LCD will display the reading.
DC/AC Voltage Measurements
1. Insert the black test lead into the negative COM terminal
and the red test lead into the positive V terminal.
2. Set the function switch to the V position.
3. Select AC or DC with the MODE button.
4. Connect the test leads in parallel to the circuit under test.
5. Read the voltage measurement on the LCD display.
6
Resistance Measurements
1. Insert the black test lead into the negative COM terminal
and the red test lead into the positive terminal.
2. Set the function switch to the Ω
•))) position.
3. Touch the test probe tips across the circuit or component
under test. It is best to disconnect one side of the device
under test so the rest of the circuit will not interfere with the
resistance reading.
4. For Resistance tests, read the resistance on the LCD
display.
Diode and Continuity Measurements
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 rotary switch to the Ω
3. Press the MODE button until “
•))) position.
” appears in the display.
4. Touch the test probes to the diode under test. Forward
voltage will indicate 0.4V to 0.7V. Reverse voltage will
indicate “OL”. Shorted devices will indicate near 0mV and
an open device will indicate “OL” in both polarities.

Capacitance Measurements
WARNING: To avoid electric shock, disconnect power to
the unit under test and discharge all capacitors before
taking any capacitance measurements. Remove the
batteries and unplug the line cords.
1. Set the rotary function switch to the CAP position.
2. Insert the black test lead banana plug into the negative
(COM) jack.Insert the red test lead banana plug into the
positive (V) jack.
3. Touch the test leads to the capacitor to be tested.
4. Read the capacitance value in the display
Frequency or % duty cycle measurements
1. Set the rotary function switch to the “VDC/AC,Hz” position.
2. Insert the black lead banana plug into the negative COM
jack and the red test lead banana plug into the positive V
jack.
3. Select Hz or % duty with the Hz/% button.
4. Touch the test probe tips to the circuit under test.
5. Read the frequency on the display.
Temperature Measurements
WARNING: To avoid electric shock, disconnect both test
probes from any source of voltage before making a
temperature measurement.
1. Set the function switch to °C or °F.
2. Insert the Temperature Probe into the negative (COM) and
the V jacks, making sure to observe the correct polarity.
8
3. Touch the Temperature Probe head to the part whose
temperature you wish to measure. Keep the probe touching
the part under test until the reading stabilizes (about 30
seconds).
4. Read the temperature in the display. The digital reading will
indicate the proper decimal point and value.
WARNING: To avoid electric shock, be sure the thermocouple
has been removed before changing to another measurement
function
Non-Contact AC Voltage Measurements
WARNING: Risk of Electrocution. Before use, always
test the Voltage Detector on a known live circuit to
verify proper operation
1. Turn meter On to any setting. The AC Voltage Detector is
located at the tip of the AC current clamp at the ‘lightning
bolt’ marks. Only the outside of the clamp, in the ‘notch’ at
the clamp separation, is sensitive to AC voltage. Clamping
the jaws around a live wire will not necessarily cause the AC
Voltage Detector to sense the ‘live’ wire.
2. If AC voltage is present, the red AC Voltage indicator will
light.
NOTE: The conductors in electrical cords are often twisted
and the position of the ‘hot’ wire is unknown. For best
results, hold the cord in the notch of the clamp while
running it along the length of the cord.
9
NOTE: The detector is designed with high sensitivity. Static
electricity or other sources of energy may randomly
cause the red indicator to light. This is normal
operation.
MODE BUTTON
To select DC/ACV,OHM/ Diode/Continuity
Data Hold Button / Backlite
To freeze the LCD meter reading, press the data hold button.
While data hold is active, the HOLD display icon appears on
the LCD. Press the data hold button again to return to normal
operation.
The HOLD button also turns the Backlite on and off. Press it for
about 2 seconds to turn the light on. Press it again for 2
seconds to turn the light off. The light will turn off automatically
in about 30 minutes if the buttons or knob on the meter are not
operated.
NOTE: Turning the Backlite on and off also turns HOLD on
and off. Use short presses of the button to control
HOLD, and long presses to control the Backlite. Any
combination of HOLD and Backlite can be obtained.
REL BUTTON
For Capacitance Zero & Offset adjustment.
10
RANGE BUTTON
When the meter is first turned on, it automatically goes into
AutoRanging. This automatically selects the best range for the
measurements being made and is generally the best mode for
most measurements. For measurement situations requiring
that a range be manually selected, perform the following:
1. Press the RANGE button. The “Auto Range” display
indicator will turn off, The “Manual Range” display indicator
will turn on
2. Press the RANGE button to step through the available
ranges until you select the range you want.
3. Press and hold the RANGE button for 2 seconds to
exit the ManualRanging mode and return to AutoRanging.
Battery Replacement
1. Remove the 2 rear Phillips head screw
2. Open the battery compartment
3. Replace the 2 “AAA’ batteries (1.5V, UM4, R03)
4. Re-assemble the meter
