GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
You have just acquired an intrinsically safe portable digital multimeter and we thank you for
your confidence.
For your own safety and that of the unit, you must observe the instructions described in this
manual to ensure safe operation of the multimeter, in the specified conditions of use.
This MX 57 EX multimeter complies with safety standard EN 61010-1 (2001), double insulation,
relative to electronic measuring instruments. This instrument has been designed for indoor use, in
an environment with pollution level 2, at an altitude of less than 2000 m, at a temperature
between 0°C and 50°C, with relative humidity of less than 80% up to 40°C.
It can be used for measurements on Measurement category III type of circuits for voltages no
higher than 600 V (AC or DC) in relation to the earth.
The safety of any system incorporating this instrument is the responsibility of the system
assembler.
It meets Cenelec European standards EN 60079-0, EN 60079-11 and EN 61241-11
(electrical equipment for explosive atmospheres) as per Directive 94/9/CE (ATEX) and
international standards IEC 60079-0, IEC 60079-11, IEC 61241-0, IEC 61241-11 as per
the IECEx certification system.
It enables electrical measurement in explosive atmospheres in intrinsically safe circuits (gas per
group II C, temperature class depends on the battery) in potential danger zones (zone 1) and in
gassy mines (group I). In accordance with the standard, the certification allows voltage
measurements up to 60 V, current measurements less than 500 mA and not over 40°C.
1.1.
Safety measures
After a use on circuits other than those of intrinsically safety, the user must observe a
period of 3 min. waiting before carrying the multimeter in a dangerous area of EX class.
1.1.1. Utilisation of the intrinsically safe multimeter in danger zones
The safe use of equipment in danger zones requires familiarity with the group of gases and
comparison of the self-ignition temperature of the gas mixtures involved with the temperature
indicated on the equipment.
This multimeter must be used only by personnel who are familiar with the rules for explosive
atmosphere equipment and have undergone appropriate training.
The MX 57 EX multimeter may be used for short measurement operations on
category ″ib″ intrinsically safe circuits. ″"Short" means that the multimeter must
not be used continuously, nor be used as a fixed unit.
The MX 57 EX multimeter may be considered as a passive element without
energy accumulator, i.e. with no inductance lint ≈ 0, or capacitance Cint ≈ 0.
During a voltage measurement, to prevent any overload, the existing intrinsically
safe safety circuit must never be opened.
1.1.2. Before use
∗ Before use in explosive atmospheres, check the type of battery fitted in the
instrument to determine the authorised class of temperature.
If necessary, adapt the battery according to the references in the tables in the Power
Supply §. on page 43.
∗ Comply with environmental and storage conditions.
∗ The electrical parameters of the intrinsically safe circuit must comply with the
following values : U ≤ 60 V (peak value) or I ≤ 500 mA.

Chapter II
∗ For your own safety, only use the measuring probes which have been delivered with the
instrument. Before use, check that they are in good condition.
∗ In an explosive atmosphere, use only accessories that have a certificate of conformity
authorising their use with this multimeter.
1.1.3. During use
∗ Never exceed the protective limiting values given in the characteristics specific to
each type of measurement.
∗ When the multimeter is linked to measurement circuits, do not touch unused
terminals.
∗ When the scale of the value to be measured is unknown, check that the scale
initially set on the multimeter is the highest possible or, wherever possible, choose
the autoranging mode.
∗ Before changing functions, disconnect the test leads from the circuit under test.
∗ When performing current measurements, never change of range, do not connect or
disconnect leads without first isolating the current. If you do, there is a risk of
generating surge currents which can blow the fuse or damage the instrument.
∗ Never perform resistance measurements on live circuits.
1.1.4. Symbols
Warning: Risk of danger. Refer to the operating manual to find out the nature of the
potential hazards and the action necessary to avoid such hazards.
Earth
Dual insulation
According to WEEE directive 2002/96/EC
1.1.5. Definition of measurement categories
CAT III: Measurement category III corresponds to measurements on building
installations.
Example: measurements on distribution panels, cabling, etc.
1.1.6. Opening the instrument (performed outside explosive atmosphere only)
∗ Before opening the instrument, always disconnect from all sources of electric
current and make sure not to be loaded with static electricity, which may destroy
internal components.
∗ The F1 fuse certified for EX classified danger zones, as well as the F2 fuse, must
be replaced by a model identical to the origin fuses.
(See §. 3.5.3. Replacing the battery or one fuse).
∗ Any adjustment, maintenance or repair work carried out on the multimeter should
be carried out only by appropriately qualified personnel, after having taken into
account the instructions in this present manual. A "qualified person" is one who
is familiar with the installation, construction and operation of the equipment and the
hazards involved.
This qualified person must be familiar with equipment for explosive atmospheres
and be trained in the general rules for intrinsic safety.
∗ When the instrument is open, for maintenance purposes for example, remember
that some internal capacitors can retain a dangerous potential even after the
instrument is powered down.

X02137C00 - Ed. 1 - 06/07
∗ If any faults or abnormalities are observed, take the instrument out of service and
ensure that it cannot be used until it has been checked out.
∗ It is recommended to remove the battery from the instrument if not used.
1.2.
Protection devices
ASYC II series instruments are fitted with various protection devices :
∗ A protection by varistors allows a chopping of transient overvoltages present at
the terminals of measurement.
∗ A PTC (Positive Temperature Coefficient) resistor protects against permanent
overvoltages of up to 600 V during resistance, capacitance and diode test
measurements. This protection is reset automatically after overload.
∗ One F1 intrinsically safe fuse provides protection during current measurements.
∗ A special intrinsic safety case ensures IP 67 sealing.
1.3.
Safety devices
∗ The battery unit and fuse cannot be accessed without first disconnecting the
measuring leads.
∗ When measuring voltages above 24 V, the sign blinks
on the display.
∗ If the maximum range is repeatedly exceeded, an intermittent audible signal indicates
the risk of electric shock.
1.4.

Multimeter maintenance
Any internal intervention can only be performed outside the danger zone.
3.5.1. Fuse self-test
F1 Fuse: When the switch is set to the µA mA position and the (0.500 A, 125 V) F1 fuse
of intrinsic safety is cut, the display shows "FUSE".
Replace it by a fuse of identical model.
F2 Fuse : The (1 A, 600 V, 30 kA) F2 fuse does not have automatic control. To check it,
set the switch to the continuity test position, connect the COM input and the V
input by a cord; if the buzzer is active, the (1 A) F2 fuse is in good condition, if
the buzzer is not active, F2 is out of order.
Replace it by a fuse of identical model.
Note
When the F2 fuse is cut, replace it : voltage measurements are possible,
but the specifications are not guaranteed any more. The other types of
measurements are not possible any more.
3.5.2. Battery self-test
When the “BAT” indication is displayed continuously on the display, the instrument still has
approximately 10 hours of operation (in VDC mode), but specifications can no longer be
guaranteed.
Replace the battery.
3.5.3. Replacing the battery or one fuse
When changing parts (performed outside the danger zone only, EX class), check
that a fuse of the correct calibre and specified type is used.
Use of a non-compliant fuse and short-circuiting of the fuse holder are strictly prohibited.
Use only a 9 V battery (6LF22, 6LR61) verified as being on the certified list. It is prohibited
to use batteries other than those specified.
Certified batteries : See the list on page 43 of this user manual.
CAUTION: The temperature class depends on the battery used.

RANGE key
• In AUTO mode, to switch to MANUAL mode (short press).
• In MANUAL mode, to select the next range (short press) or return to AUTO mode (long
press).
Measurements concerned : voltages, capacitance, resistance, currents.
• When making time measurements (frequency, duty cycle, pulse width, pulse count) : if
the range change made during previous measurements (Voltage or Current) was in
manual mode, it may be necessary to adapt this measurement range to the signal level
injected at the input. This is why the RANGE key is used to change from one range
(Voltage or Current) to the next range. The new range is then displayed for 2 seconds.
4.3.
4.4.
REL key
Short press :
mode REL, the last value measured becomes the reference value
derived from subsequent measurements.
Long press :
When in REL mode, a long press displays the reference being used.
This value may be adjusted using the SEL/ON key (selection of digits
and a sign) and the RANGE key (increment the selected digit).
PK+/- key
The fast positive or negative peak measurement functions (≥ 1 ms) can be accessed by
repeatedly pressing this key in the VDC, mVDC, and mADC functions.
4.5.
HOLD key
Short press :
Fixes the display on the current value.
Long press :
Accesses or quits the autostore mode. Can be accessed in the VDC, mV,
VAC positions.
Autostore
Set the probes on the point to be measured. An audio signal indicates if the measurement is
stable. When you remove the probes, a second audible signal indicates that this stable value
displayed has been stored.
4.6.
ZOOM key
You can press this key to expand the bargraph readout five times for positive measurements
and eleven times for bipolar measurements, one centred around zero (centre zero mode).
Adjusts ohm-value references in dB and resistive power measurements
When the current measurement is dB or resistive power, you can display the resistance
reference with the ZOOM key (long press). This value can then be adjusted using the
SEL/ON and RANGE keys (this value is common to dBm and resistive power
measurements).
You quit the ohm reference adjustment mode with the ZOOM key (short press).
