Safety Information and Symbols
A Warning statement identifies hazardous conditions and actions that
could cause bodily harm or death.
A Caution statement identifies conditions and actions that could damage
the Meter or the equipment under test.
XW Read First: Safety Information
To ensure safe operation and service of the Meter, follow
these instructions:
•
Read the Instruction Sheet before use and follow all
safety instructions.
•
Use the Meter only as specified in the Instruction
Sheet; otherwise, the Meter's safety features may be
impaired.
•
Before each use, inspect the Meter and cable for
damage. Look for cracks and missing portions of the
clamp and cable. Do not use if clamp is damaged.
•
Use caution when working with voltages above 33 V
rms 47 V peak or 70 V dc these voltages pose a shock
hazard.
•
Do not use to measure ac current.
•
Do not use to measure ac voltage.
•
Avoid working alone so assistance can be rendered in
an emergency.
772/773 English Instruction Sheet
Page 3
•
Use extreme caution when working around bare
conductors or bus bars. Contact with the conductor
could result in electric shock.
•
To avoid false readings that can lead to electrical
shock and injury, replace the batteries as soon as the
low battery indicator B appears.
•
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.
•
When measuring, keep fingers behind the Tactile
Barrier. See Figure 1.
•
Do not use on non-insulated conductors.
•
Do not use near strong magnetic fields.
•
Remove test leads before opening case.

User Options
Several user options can be activated at Meter power up. Hold N
when powering on the Meter. While holding down N, toggle on/off
each option by repeatedly pressing the following keys:
•
Q toggle on/off backlight auto off. Display shows bLit on or oFF.
•
A toggle on/off spotlight auto off. Display shows SLit on or oFF.
•
H toggle on/off auto power off. Display shows PoFF on or oFF.
When all key are released, the software version appears and the Meter
enters Clamp Measure mode.
Measurement Spotlight LED
The Measurement Spotlight LED helps to quickly find mA signal wires.
Press A to activate it. To extend battery life, the light automatically turns
off after 2 minutes.
Display HOLD
XW Warning
To avoid electric shock, be aware of the measurement
being taken when using Display HOLD. When Display
HOLD is activated, the display will not change when
different currents are applied.
Press H to activate Display Hold mode. The display shows I and
the display freezes. To exit and return to normal operation, press H a
second time. When in Auto Ramping mode, H stops ramping.
Auto Ramping the Output
Auto ramping can continuously apply a varying output from the mA
source to a device while your hands remain free to test the response.
When K is pressed, the Meter produces a repeating 0 % - 100 % 0 % ramp in a choice of three ramp waveforms:
•
() 0 % - 100 % - 0 % 40-second smooth ramp
•
() 0 % - 100 % - 0 % 30-second smooth ramp
•
() 0 % - 100 % - 0 % 25 % step ramp, 10 seconds each step.
To exit ramping, press any button.
Probe Holder
The Meter is equipped with a probe holder that can either hold a test
probe or can be used to attach the Fluke ToolPak. See Figure 5.

Taking Measurements
XW Warning
To avoid electric shock, do not use the clamp on noninsulated conductors.
Measurements can be taken with the clamp in the docked position,
remotely using the 1 m cable, or via test leads. For accurate
measurements:
•
Always zero the Meter prior to taking measurements with the clamp.
•
To reduce magnetic influences, zero the Meter as close to the
measurement in the same position or jaw direction that is used for
the measurements as possible.
•
Make sure the clamp is free of contamination.
To use the clamp for measurements:
1.
Press C to enter Clamp Measure mode and to zero the Meter.
Clamp mode includes clamp measure, mA scale output, and mA
IN/OUT. If necessary, press N to change to mA scale.
2.
Clamp the jaw around the conductor under test. The Meter displays
the measured conductor current. See Figure 6.
•
A positive reading indicates current flowing in the direction of
the arrow on the clamp.
•
A negative reading indicates current flowing in the opposite
direction of the arrow.
•
Do not clamp more than one wire.
The small secondary display shows the reading in mA percentage of
span.

To use the test leads for measurements:
1. Insert the test leads into the proper input jacks. See Figure 7.
2. Press the correct button for the measurement.
3. Apply the test leads.
4. Observe the reading on the main display. In mA mode, the
secondary display shows the reading in percentage of span.

Current and Voltage Output Functions
Both Meters provide steady, stepped, and ramped current output for
testing 0-24 mA current loops. Additionally, the 773 provides voltage
output to 10 V. To access these functions, press
T as necessary.
•
Choose Source mode to supply current or voltage.
•
Choose Simulate mode to regulate current in an externally powered
current loop.
•
Choose Loop Supply mode to power an external device and
measure mA loop current.
Sourcing mA
Use mA Source mode whenever it is necessary to source current into a
passive circuit such as a current loop with no loop supply. Source mode
depletes the battery faster than Simulate mode.
To enter Source mode for the 772, see Figure 4:
1.
Insert the test leads into the -mA and +mA jacks.
2.
Press L.
3.
Press
T until Source appears on the display.
772/773 English Instruction Sheet

To enter mA Source mode for the 773, see Figure 8:
1.
Insert the test leads into the desired input jacks.
2.
Press L.
3.
Press
T until Source appears on the display.

Maintenance
XW Warning
To avoid possible electric shock or personal injury, repairs
or servicing not covered in this manual should be
performed only by qualified personnel.
Cleaning the Meter
XW Warning
To avoid electrical shock, remove any input signals before
cleaning.
W Caution
To avoid damaging the Meter, do not use aromatic
hydrocarbons or chlorinated solvents for cleaning. These
solutions will react with the plastics used in the Meter.
Clean the instrument case with a damp cloth and mild detergent.
Battery Replacement
XW Warning
To avoid false readings, that could lead to possible electric
shock or personal injury, replace the batteries as soon as
the low battery indicator (B) appears.
To replace the batteries, see Figure 10:
1.
Turn the Meter off.
2.
Use a flat head screwdriver to loosen the battery compartment door
screw, and remove the door from the case bottom.
3.
Remove the batteries.
4.
Replace the batteries with four new AA batteries.
5.
Reattach the battery compartment door to the case bottom and tighten
the screw.
