Avoid Fire or Personal Injury.
Use Proper Power Cord.
Only the power cord designed for the instrument as authorized in your country
could be used.
Ground The Instrument.
The instrument is grounded through the grounding conductor of the power cord. To
avoid electric shock the instrument grounding conductor(s) must be grounded
properly before making connections to the input or output terminals of the
instrument.

Input Terminal Protection Limitation
Protection limitation is defined for the input terminal:
1. Main input (HI and LO) terminal
HI and LO terminals are used for Voltage, Resistance, Capacitance, Continuity,
Frequency and Diodes measurement. Two protection limitations are defined:
1) HI-LO protection limitation: 1000 VDC or 750 VAC. It is the maximum
measurable voltage. The limitation can be expressed as 1000 Vpk.
2) LO-ground protection limitation. LO terminal can safely “float” 500 Vpk
relative to the ground.
The maximum protection limitation of HI terminal relative to the ground is
1000 Vpk. Therefore, the sum of the “float” voltage and the measured voltage
cannot exceed 1000 Vpk.
2. Sampling (HI Sense and LO Sense) terminal
HI Sense and LO Sense are used for 4-Wire Resistance Measurement. Two
protection limitations are defined:
1) HI Sense-LO Sense protection limitation: 200Vpk.
2) LO Sense-LO protection limitation: 2Vpk.
3. Current input (I) terminal
I and LO terminal are used for current measurement. The maximum current
which go through the I terminal is limited to 10A by the fuse on the rear
panel.
NOTE: Voltage on the current input terminal corresponds to voltage on LO
terminal. To obtain favorable protection, specified fuse should be used.
IEC Measurement Category II Overvoltage Protection
To protect against the danger of electric shock, DM3058 provides overvoltage
protection for line-voltage mains connections meeting both of the following
conditions:
1. The HI and LO input terminals are connected to the mains under
Measurement Category II conditions, defined below.
2. The mains are limited to a maximum line voltage of 600 VAC.
WARNING: IEC Measurement Category II includes electrical devices connected to
mains at an outlet on a branch circuit. Such devices include most small appliances,
test equipment, and other devices that plug into a branch outlet or socket.
DM3058 may be used to make measurements with the HI and LO inputs connected
IV
User’s Guide for DM3058
RIGOL
to mains in such devices (up to 600 VAC), or to the branch outlet itself. However,
DM3058 may not be used with its HI and LO inputs connected to mains in
permanently installed electrical devices such as the main circuit-breaker panel,
sub-panel disconnected boxes, or permanently wired motors. Such devices and
circuits are subject to overvoltage that may exceed the protection limits of DM3058.
NOTE:Voltages above 600 VAC may be measured only in circuits that are isolated
from mains. However, transient overvoltage is also present on circuits that are
isolated from mains. DM3058 is designed to safely withstand occasional transient
overvoltage up to 4000Vpk. Do not use this equipment to measure circuits where
transient overvoltage could exceed this level.

Explanations:
 When the input signal is beyond the current scope of the measurement range,
the multimeter will show “OVER RANGE”.
 After restarting and Remote being replacement, range options will turn back to
default “Automatic”.
 You are suggested to select Auto Range so as to protect the instrument against
damage and get exact datum as much as possible when it is hard to predict the
range of measurement.
 The range is fixed during testing the Continuity and checking the Diodes, The
range of Continuity is selected as 2KΩ while the Diodes are 2VDC.
NOTE
Other functions of the directive keys:

In the Save interface, Up and Down keys are used to select address for
saving files.

During inputting data, Up and Down keys are used to change the selected
value. Each press for up key, value will be increased 1, vice versa.

At the input interface of data, Left and Right keys are used to switch the

20 Reading/s belongs to Middle Rate, the mark of Status Bar is “M” and the rate of
refurbishing shows 20Hz.
120 Reading/s belongs to Fast Rate, the mark of Status Bar is “F” and the rate of
refurbishing shows 50Hz.
Measurement Rate could be controlled by Left and Right direction key. Each press

4-Wire Resistance Measurement
When the measured resistance is smaller than 100kΩ, if both the resistance of Test
leads and the contact resistance between probe and testing point are too big to be
ignored as comparing with measured resistance, the error will be increased
provided that you insist on measuring by via 2-Wire Resistance. So please change it
to 4-Wire.

Troubleshooting
When pressing the power switch, the multimeter is still in blank
screen with nothing displaying:
Check if the power is correctly connected.
Check if the main power switch on the rear panel has been turn on.
Check if the safety fuse has been blown, replace with a new one if necessary.
Having done with the above steps, restart the instrument.
If it still cannot work properly, please contact the local RIGOL Support center,
let’s serve for you.
2. When connecting a current signal, the reading has any change:
(1) Check if the test lead is correctly connected to current jack or the LO jack.
(2) Check if the safety fuse in the current location on the rear panel has been
blown.
(3) Check if the measure location has switched to the DCI or ACI place correctly.
(4) Check whether the input is ACI but the shelves location is DCI.

Make sure the R circuit of input terminal has been completely stable before accurate
measurement.
Input >300Vrms (or >5Arms) will cause the self heating of the signal conditioning component to
generate error, this error is included in the characteristics of the instrument. Internal temperature
variation results from the self heating will cause additional error on ac range, this error is lower
than 0.02% reading, and it will disappear after a few minutes.

For AC input voltages 12% to 120% of range except where noted. 750V range P/Fed to
750VRMS. 200mV range specifications are for full scale or greater inputs. For inputs from
24mV to 200mV, multiply total % of reading error by 10.

Measurement Characteristics
Frequency and Period
Measurement Method:
Reciprocal-counting technique. AC-coupled input using the ac voltage
or ac current measurement function.
Measurement attentions:
All frequency counters are susceptible to error when measuring low–voltage, low–frequency
signals. Shielding inputs from external noise pickup is critical for minimizing measurement errors.
Setting time attentions:
Errors will occur when attempting to measure the frequency or period of an input following a dc
offset voltage change. The input blocking RC time constant must be allowed to fully settle (up to
1 sec) before the most accurate measurements are possible.

Input Protection:
1000V on all ranges
Measurement attentions:
Measurement of small capacitance is easily affected by external noise thus to cause measurement
error, disable input will reduce this error.

Appendix C: General Care and Cleaning
General Maintenance
Do not store or leave the instrument in where the instrument will be exposed to
direct sunlight for long periods of time.
Caution
To avoid damages to the instrument, do not expose it to sprays, liquids, or
solvents.
Cleaning
Inspect the instrument often based on its operating conditions require. Before
cleaning, please disconnect it from all power sources and clean it with a mild
detergent and water. Make sure the instrument is completely dry before
reconnecting it to a power source.
To clean the exterior surface, perform the following steps:
1. Remove loose dust on the outside of the instrument with a lint- free cloth.
Take care to avoid scratching the clear plastic display filter.
2. Use a soft cloth dampened with water to clean the instrument.
!
NOTE: To avoid damages to the surface of the instrument, do not use
any abrasive or chemical cleaning agents.
