INSULATION RESISTANCE MEASUREMENT
Binding Post
Figure 4. Insulation Resistance Measurement
1. According to testing request, tune the function switch to a suitable function
2.
Connect the electrode of the tested object to the relative terminals of the tester
3. When testing a cable, connect “G’ terminal to the protection loop.
4. Press “TEST” button to get started the measurement. Read the display after the display stabilized. To make continuous
measurement, turn the function switch to the right to lock. Turn the function switch to the left to unlock the continuous
measurement. When pressing the “TEST” button, the high voltage indicator turns red, and the high voltage indication is
displayed on the LCD. At the same time, the beeper alarms with “tick-tick” sound. If the tested insulation resistance is 5%
less than the selected range of if there is short circuit, the beeper alarms with a “tick……” long sound.
5.
Connect the red lead “E” to the circuit of the tested object, and black lead “L” to the ground terminal of the tested object.
Lead “E” is required to be hung in the air.
6. If the LCD displays “1”, it indicates over range operation. Please choose a higher range to get reading.
Caution
1. Pressing the “TEST” button, output terminal “E” will have high voltage output. Be careful to avoid electric shock.
2.
Before testing, make sure to choose a correct voltage range. Make sure the LCD display is in accordance with selected
voltage.
3. During MΩ measurement, the ambient interference or insulation material instability may cause unstable readings. In this
situation, connect terminal “G” to the shield terminal of the tested object to get stable readings.
RESISTANCE AND CONTINUITY MEASUREMENT
1. Tune the function switch to range 2000Ω.
2.
Connect the read lead to “V/Ω” input terminal and black lead to “G” input terminal.
3.
Connect the test leads across the tested circuit. The LCD will display the tested data.
4. If the tested resistance is less than approx.50Ω, the beeper alarms.
Caution
1. If the tested resistance is over 2kΩ or there is open circuit, the LCD displays “1”.
2. When testing a live resistor, to ensure safety, do not proceed testing until the tested circuit is completely powered off and
all capacitors are fully discharged.
3. If testing results have considerable, it may be caused by other live components of the same circuit or by electric potential
on the two ends of the resistor.

4. Do not input voltage to the resistance range!
DCV MEASUREMENT
1. Tune the function switch to DC 1000V range.
2.
Connect the red lead to “V/Ω” input terminal and black lead to “G” input terminal.
3.
Connect the test leads across the tested circuit. The LCD will display the voltage and polarity of the red lead touch point.
Caution
1. If there is residue numbers before measurement, it is normal and will not affect the measurement. If the LCD displays “1”
during measurement, it indicates over range operation.
2. The input voltage must not over DC 1000V. Voltage over DC 1000V will cause damage to the instrument circuit.
3. During high voltage circuit measurement, do not touch the high voltage circuit to avoid electric shock.
ACV MEASUREMENT
1. Tune the function switch to AC 750V range.
2.
Connect the red lead to “V/Ω” input terminal and black lead to “G” input terminal.
3.
Connect the test leads across the tested circuit. The LCD will display the voltage and polarity of the red lead touch point.
Caution
1. If there is residue numbers before measurement, it is normal and will not affect the measurement. If the LCD displays “1”
during measurement, it indicates over range operation.
2. The input voltage must not over AC 750V. Voltage over AC 750V will cause damage to the instrument circuit.
3. During high voltage circuit measurement, do not touch the high voltage circuit to avoid electric shock.
DATA HOLD
Press the “HOLD” button, the current data will be held on the LCD. Press the “HOLD” button again to cancel data hold.
Note
There is no data hold function during insulation resistance measurement.
BACKLIT DISPLAY
Pressing “*” button, the LCD backlight turns on. Pressing “*” button again, the LCD backlight turns off.
SAFETY IINSTRUCTIONS AND MAINTENANCE
The tester is a precise instrument. User is not allowed to apply any modification to the instrument circuit.
Caution
1. To ensure safety, the tested object must be completely shut off from power supply and must be testified that the tested
object has been fully discharged by short circuit discharge to testify that the tested object dose have any electrical hazard.
2. Do not input voltage over DC 1000V or AC 750Vrms.
3. Do not apply voltage measurement in the Ω range.
4. Do not apply any measurement before the instrument’s batteries are well installed or before the rear cover is well loaded.
5.
Before change battery or change fuse, remove all test leads from the tested object and turn off the power switch.
6. Keep the instrument away from water and dust. Do not fall or throw the instrument.
7. Keep the instrument away from high temperature, high humidity, flammable, explosive and strong magnetic environment.
8. Use a soft cloth dampened in a solution of mild detergent and water to clean the instrument. Do not spray cleaner directly
onto the instrument or use any abrasives or strong solvent.
9. If long time no use, take out the batteries from the instrument to avoid battery leakage damaging the instrument.
