1. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS AND PROCEDURES
This meter is in compliance with IEC/EN61010-1 guideline related to electronic measuring
instruments. For your own safety and to avoid damaging the instrument follow the
procedures described in this instruction manual and read carefully all notes preceded by
this symbol .When taking measurements:
 Avoid doing that in humid or wet places
 Avoid doing that in rooms where explosive gas, combustible gas, steam or excessive
dust is present.
 Keep you insulated from the object under test.
 Do not touch exposed metal parts such as test lead ends, sockets, fixing objects,
circuits etc.
 Avoid doing that if you notice anomalous conditions such as breakages, deformations,
fractures, leakages of battery liquid, blind display etc.
 Be particularly careful when measuring voltages exceeding 20V to avoid risk of
electrical shocks.
The following symbols are used on the instrument and in the manual:
CAUTION - refer to the instruction manual - an improper use may damage the
instrument or its components.
Double insulated meter.

1.1. PRELIMINARY
 This instrument has been designed for use in environments of pollution degree 2.
 It can be used for VOLTAGE and DC CURRENT measurements on installations of
CAT III 600V measurement
 This instrument is not suitable for measurements of not sine wave voltage.
 When using the instrument always respect the usual safety regulations aimed at
protecting you against the dangerous electric currents and protecting the instrument
against incorrect operations.
 Only the leads supplied with the instrument guarantee compliance with the safety
standards in force. They must be in good conditions and, if necessary, replaced with
identical ones.
 Do not test or connect to any circuit exceeding the specified overload protection.
 Do not effect measurements under environmental conditions exceeding the limits
indicated in § 6.2.1
 Make sure that batteries are properly installed
 Before connecting the test probes to the installation make sure that the rotary selector
is positioned on the right function
 Make sure that LCD and rotary selector indicate the same function

1.2. DURING USE
Read the recommendations which follow and the instructions in this manual:
CAUTION
An improper use may damage the instrument and/or its components or
injure the operator.




When changing the range, first disconnect the test leads from the circuit under test in
order to avoid any accident.
When the instrument is connected to measuring circuits never touch any unused
terminal.
When measuring resistors do not add any voltage. Although there is a protection
circuit, excessive voltage could cause malfunctioning.
If during measurement the displayed values remain constant check whether the HOLD
function is active.
1.3. AFTER USE
 After using the instrument turn it off.
 If you expect not to use the instrument for a long period remove the battery to avoid
leakages of battery liquids which may damage its inner components.
1.4. MEASURING (OVERVOLTAGE) CATEGORIES DEFINITIONS
IEC/EN61010-1: Safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control
and laboratory use, Part 1: General requirements, gives a definition of measuring
category, usually called overvoltage category. § 6.7.4: Measuring circuits:
(OMISSIS)
Circuits are divided into the following measurement categories:




Measurement category IV is for measurements performed at the source of the lowvoltage installation.
Examples are electricity meters and measurements on primary overcurrent protection
devices and ripple control units.
Measurement category III is for measurements performed in the building installation.
Examples are measurements on distribution boards, circuit breakers, wiring, including
cables, bus-bars, junction boxes, switches, socket-outlets in the fixed installation, and
equipment for industrial use and some other equipment, for example, stationary motors
with permanent connection to fixed installation.
Measurement category II is for measurements performed on circuits directly
connected to the low voltage installation..
Examples are measurements on household appliances, portable tools and similar
equipment.
Measurement category I is for measurements performed on circuits not directly
connected to MAINS.
Examples are measurements on circuits not derived from MAINS, and specially
protected (internal) MAINS-derived circuits. In the latter case, transient stresses are
variable; for that reason, the norm requires that the transient withstand capability of the
equipment is made known to the user.
