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.
•
Remove the battery if meter is to be stored for longer than 60 days.
WARNINGS
•
Set function switch to the appropriate position before measuring.
•
When measuring volts do not switch to current/resistance modes.
•
Do not measure current on a circuit whose voltage exceeds 240V.
•
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.
OVERVOLTAGE CATEGORY III
This meter meets the IEC 610-1-95 standard for OVERVOLTAGE CATEGORY III. Cat III
meters are protected against overvoltage transients in fixed installation at the distribution
level. Examples include switches in the fixed installation and some equipment for industrial
use with permanent connection to the fixed installation.

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 Voltage Measurements
1.
Set the rotary function switch to the VAC position.
2.
Insert the black test lead banana plug into the negative
(COM) jack and the red test lead banana plug into the
positive (V/Ω) jack
3.
Touch the test probe tips to the circuit under test
4.
Read the voltage in the display. The display will indicate
the proper decimal point and value
DC Voltage Measurements
1.
Set the rotary function switch to the VDC position.
2.
Insert the black test lead banana plug into the negative (COM) jack and
the red test lead banana plug into the positive (V/Ω) jack
3.
Touch the test probe tips to the circuit under test. Be sure to observe
the correct polarity (red lead to positive, black lead to negative)
4.
Read the voltage in the display. The display will indicate the proper
decimal point and value. If the polarity is reversed, the display will show
(-) minus before the value

AC Current Measurements
WARNING: Ensure that the test leads are disconnected from
the meter before making current clamp measurements.

3.
Set the Function switch to the 400 or 200A range. If the
range of the measured is not known, select the higher range
first then move to the lower range if necessary.
Press the trigger to open jaw. Fully enclose one conductor to
be measured.
The clamp meter LCD will display the reading.
Resistance Measurements
•))) position.
1. Set the function switch to the Ω
2. Insert the black test lead banana plug into the negative
(COM) jack
Insert the red test lead banana plug into the positive (VΩ)
jack.
3. Touch the test probe tips across the circuit or part under
test. It is best to disconnect one side of the part under test
so the rest of the circuit will not interfere with the
resistance reading.
4. Read the resistance in the display. The display will
indicate the proper decimal point and value.
Continuity Check
•))) position.
1. Set the function switch to the Ω
2. Push the mode button to indicate •))) on the display.
3. Insert the black lead banana plug into the negative
(COM) jack
Insert the red test lead banana plug into the positive
(VΩ) jack.
4. Touch the test probe tips to the circuit or wire you
wish to check.
5. If the resistance is less than approximately 30Ω, the
audible signal will sound. If the circuit is open, the
display will indicate “OL.”.

Diode Test
1. Turn the rotary switch to the Ω
•))) position.
2. Insert the black test lead banana plug into the negative
(COM) jack and the red test lead banana plug into the
positive (VΩ) jack.
3. Push the mode button to indicate
on the display.
4. Touch the test probes to the diode under test. Forward
voltage will indicate 400 to 700mV. Reverse voltage will
indicate “OL”. Shorted devices will indicate near 0mV.
Shorted devices will indicate near 0mV and an open
device will indicate “OL” in both polarities.
Data Hold
To freeze the LCD meter reading, press the data hold button. The data hold button is
located on the left side of the meter (bottom 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.
MAX Hold
To hold the highest reading on the LCD, press the MAX button. The max hold button is
located on the left side of the meter (top button). While data hold is active, the MAX display
icon appears on the LCD. The meter reading will not change as readings change, rather it
will only display the highest reading encountered since the max hold button was pressed.
Press the max hold button again to return to normal operation.
