Safety Information
A “XW Warning” statement defines hazardous conditions
and actions that could cause bodily harm or death.
A “W Caution” statement identifies conditions and actions
that could damage the Meter or the equipment under test.
XWRead First: Safety Information
To ensure safe operation and service of the
Meter, follow these instructions:
•
Read the Users Manual before use and
follow all safety instructions.
•
Use the Meter only as specified in the
Users Manual; otherwise, the Meter's
safety features may be impaired.
•
Avoid working alone so assistance can be
rendered.
•
Never use the Meter on a circuit with
voltages higher than 600 V or a frequency
higher than 400 Hz fundamental. The Meter
may be damaged.
•
Never measure ac current while the test
leads are inserted into the input jacks.
•
Do not use the Meter or test leads if they
look damaged.
•
Use extreme caution when working around
bare conductors or bus bars. Contact with
the conductor could result in electric
shock.

•
Use caution when working with voltages
above 60 V dc or 30 V ac rms or 42 V ac
peak. Such voltages pose a shock hazard.
•
Clean the case with a damp cloth and mild
detergent only. Do not use abrasives or
solvents.
•
To avoid false readings that can lead to
electrical shock and injury, replace the
batteries as soon as the low battery
indicator (B) appears. As the Meter gets
to the point where the low batteries affect
the readings, the Meter locks and no
measurements can be made until the
batteries are changed.
•
Do not hold the Meter anywhere beyond
the tactile barrier, see Figure 1.
•
Adhere to local and national safety codes.
Individual protective equipment must be
used to prevent shock and arc blast injury
where hazardous live conductors are
exposed.

Using the Meter
AC and DC Voltage Measurement
To measure AC or DC voltage:
1.
Insert the test leads into the Meter.
2.
Turn the rotary switch to V.
3.
Press A to choose AC or DC voltage. The display
reflects the chosen voltage mode.
4.
Use the test leads to take the measurement. The Meter
reading appears on the display.
Note
When a measured voltage is above 30 V,
Zappears on the display. When the voltage drops
below 30 V, Zdisappears.

Using the Meter
Resistance and Continuity
To measure resistance or continuity:
XW Warning
To avoid false readings that can lead to
electrical shock and injury, de-energize the
circuit before taking the measurement.
1.
Insert the test leads into the Meter.
2.
Turn the rotary switch to P.
3.
Take the measurement. The resistance reading
appears on the display.
•
If the resistance is shorted, the Meter beeps and
shows a reading < 30 Ω.
•
If the resistance is open or exceeds the Meter’s
range, the display reads OL.

Users Manual
Microamps µA Measurement
The µA dc (G) function on the Meter is primarily for HVAC
flame rod testing. To test a heating system flame rod (refer
to Figure 3):
1.
Turn the heating unit off and locate the wire between
the gas-burner controller and the flame rod.
2.
Break this connection.
3.
Turn the rotary switch on the Meter to G.
4.
Using alligator clips, connect test leads between the
flame sensor probe and control-module wire.
5. Turn heating unit on and check the reading on the
Meter.
6. Refer to the heating unit documentation for what the
desired reading should be.

Temperature
The Meter measures temperature in either Celsius (°C) or
Fahrenheit (°F).
To measure temperature (refer to Figure 4):
13
902
Users Manual
1.
Connect the 80BK Integrated DMM Temperature
Probe to the input jacks noting correct polarity of the
probe.
2.
Turn the rotary switch to F.
3.
Press A to select °C or °F. The display reflects the
chosen temperature mode.
4.
Position the probe to take the measurement. The
reading appears on the display.
Note
To meet stated accuracy, the 80BK and Meter
must be at the same temperature.
XW Warning
To avoid possible electric shock DO NOT apply
the probe tip to any conductor that is greater
than 30 V ac, 42 V peak or 60 V dc to earth.

Capacitance
Turn off circuit power, then disconnect and discharge the
capacitor before measuring capacitance. Turn the Meter’s
rotary switch to capacitance (L).
If the capacitor requires more discharging, diSC is
displayed while the capacitor discharges. When measuring,
be sure to note the correct polarity of the capacitor.
AC Current Measurement
XW Warning
To avoid electrical shock and injury:
•
Remove Test Leads before making current
measurements.
•
Do not hold the Meter anywhere beyond
the tactile barrier, see Figure 1.
Turn the rotary switch to AC current (K). When measuring
AC current, it is necessary that the measured wire be
properly seated within the clamp jaws. The wire being
measured should be centered within the jaws, below the
horizontal line located on the clamp. Also note that currents
moving in different directions will cancel each other out, so
one wire must be measured at a time for a correct
measurement (see Figure 5).

Put the Meter into the desired measurement function
and range.
2.
Press Jto enter MIN MAX Mode. MAX is displayed
and the highest reading detected since entering MIN
MAX is displayed.
3.
Press Jto step through the minimum (MIN) and
present readings.
4.
To pause MIN MAX recording without erasing stored
values, press I. K is displayed.
5.
To resume MIN MAX recording, press I again.
6.
To exit and erase stored readings, press Jfor at
least two seconds.

Display HOLD
XWWarning
To avoid possible electric shock or personal
injury, when Display HOLD is activated, be
aware that the display will not change when
you apply a different voltage.
In the Display HOLD mode, the Meter freezes the display.
The Meter also beeps every 4 seconds and Hflashes
to remind the user.
Press Ito activate Display HOLD; His displayed and
the reading is captured.
To exit and return to normal operation, press I.
Auto Off
The Meter automatically turns off after 20 minutes. The
rotary switch must be turned to “OFF” and then turned back
on for the Meter to restart. Auto Off is disabled during Min
Max mode. To disable Auto Off, hold J when turning
the Meter on.
