small deviations from the guranteed specifications may occur under such
conditions.
All connecting cables will influence emissions as well as susceptability
considerably. The cables used will differ substantially depending on the
application. During practical operation the following guidelines should be
absolutely observed in order to minimize EMI:
1. Data connections
Measuring instruments may only be connected to external associated
equipment (printers, computers etc.) by using well shielded cables. Unless
shorter lengths are prescribed a maximum length of 3 m must not be exceeded
for all data interconnections (input, output, signals, control). In case an
instrument interface would allow connecting several cables only one may be
connected.
In general, data connections should be made using double-shielded cables.
For IEEE bus connections the double-shielded HAMEG cables HZ72S and HZ72L
are suitable.
2. Signal connections
In general, all connections between a measuring instrument and the device
under test should be made as short as possible. Unless a shorter length is
prescribed a maximum length of 3 m must not be exceeded, also, such
connections must not leave the premises.
All signal connections must be shielded (e.g. coax such as RG58/U). With signal
generators double-shielded cables are mandatory. It is especially important
to establish good ground connections.

transport damage inform the supplier immediately and do not
operate the instrument.
Safety instructions
The instrument conforms to VDE 0411/1 safety standards
applicable to measuring instruments and it left the factory in
proper condition according to this standard. Hence it conforms
also to the European standard EN 61010-1 resp. to the international standard IEC 61010-1. Please observe all warnings
in this manual in order to preserve safety and guarantee
operation without any danger to the operator. According to
safety class 1 requirements all parts of the housing and the
chassis are connected to the safety ground terminal of the
power connector. For safety reasons the instrument must only
be operated from 3 terminal power connectors or via isolation
transformers. In case of doubt the power connector should
be checked according to DIN VDE 0100/610.
Positioning
Do not disconnect the safety ground either inside

used damage to the lacquered or plastic surfaces
is possible.
Proper operating conditions
Mains voltage
Operation in the following environments: industry, business
and living quarters, small industry. The instruments are
intended for operation in dry, clean environments. They must
not be operated in the presence of excessive dust, humidity,
nor chemical vapours in case of danger of explosion.
The maximum permissible ambient temperature during
operation is +10 to +40 deg. C. In storage or during transport
the temperature limits are: –40 to +70 deg. C. In case of
exposure to low temperature or if condensation is suspected,
the instrument must be left to stabilize for at least 2 hrs prior
to operation.
A main voltage of 115V and 230V can be chosen. Please check
whether the mains voltage used corresponds with the voltage
indicated by the mains voltage selector 30 on the rear panel.
If not, the voltage has to be changed.
Line fuse
The instrument has 2 internal line fuses: T 0.2 A. In case of a
blown fuse the instrument has to be sent in for repair. A change
of the line fuse by the customer is not permitted.
Power switch
In principle the instrument may be used in any position,
however sufficient ventilation must be ensured. Operation for
extended periods of time requires the horizontal or tilted
(handle) position.
Nominal specifications are valid after 30 minutes warm-up at
23 deg. C. Specifications without tolerances are typical values
taken of average production units.
Warranty and Repair
HAMEG instruments are subject to a strict quality control. All
instruments are burned in for 10 hrs prior to shipment. Almost all early failures are detected by intermittent operation.
After burn-in a thorough test of all functions and of quality is
run, all specifications and operating modes are checked.
Normally the power switch 28 on the rear
panel of the instrument should be stay in “ON“
position. If using the Standby-button on the
front panel, only the controls and the display
are turned off. The instrument itselfs stays
turned on as long as it is connected to the
supply voltage. This has the advantage that
the instrument is immediately functional after
turn-on. Also the reference voltage source will
remain energized, so any drift after turn-on will be eliminated,
also its long term drift will be substantially improved. To switchoff the instrument completely, the power switch on the back panel
has to be operated.
In case of claims during the two years warranty period please
contact the dealer from whom you purchased your HAMEG
If the instrument is left unattended for some time,
the power switch on the rear panel has to be
operated. (Because of safety reasons!)

Introduction to the operation of the HM8112-3
Concept of the HM8112-3
very high frequencies within a reasonable time. Applying of a
DC voltage results in a frequency displayed of 0 Hz.
As the period is calculated from the measured frequency
division by zero will be made. Therefore the instrument will
display „INF“ if the period of a DC voltage is measured („INF“
= infinity).
Reference
The integrated AD converter has to be connected to a reference.
The characteristics of this reference determine the long term
stability of the instrument. The reference of HM8112-3 is therefore
a high precision reference device.
Integrated AD converters
Converters applying the multi slope method are used for AD
conversion.
RMS rectifier
The AC voltage is measured by a high precision RMS rectifier
device. This device gauges a DC voltage proportional to the
applied AC voltage. This DC voltage is equivalent to the true
RMS value of the AC voltage.
Measurement of the crest factor
For crest factors exceeding 7 an AC voltage or current
measurement will be incorrect due to the true RMS converter.
Moving average
Introduction to the operation of the HM8112-3
Especially before the first operation please pay attention to
the following points:
–
–
–
–
–
The line voltage, indicated on the rear panel of the
instrument must correspond to the line voltage used.
Operation is only allowed from 3 terminal connectors with
a safety ground connection or via isolation transformers
of class 2.
No visible damage to the instrument.
No damage to the line power cord.
No loose parts in the instrument.
Factory settings
The value determined by the AD converter could be displayed
without prior computations, also the average calculated from
n – values could be shown. First of all 1 to n values will be
logged. Averaging over these values will be done, and subsequently this average will be displayed. After 120 values the

Measurement of alternating values
Frequency, period
Frequency and period are both measured by a pulse-counting
circuit. Time base is 1 second. The first falling edge triggers
the measurement and starts the counter. For one second every
falling edge will trigger a counting pulse. After expiry of this
term the measurement circuit will wait for the next zero point.
Hence the signal’s period is measured. The time will be
measured until the next zero point occurs. The measurement
result determines the frequency of the signal and the period
will be calculated from the frequency. This combined
measurement of the number of zero points and of the period
of a signal allows the measurement of very small as well as

advantage that the instrument is immediately functional after
turn-on. Also the reference voltage source will remain

Zero for DC voltage, DC current, 4-wire-resistance and 2-wireresistance measurements. The ZERO function is not provided
for AC voltage and AC current measurements. Both cables
have to be shorted and the ZERO button has to be pressed.
This results in elimination of the resistances of the measurement cables, resistances and thermal voltages at the junction
of different metals.
Compensation values remain, even after turn-off the instrument. They have to be redetermined if necessary.
STOP
Some measurement instruments offer an „automatic zero function“. This function regularly interrupts the measurement and shorts the input. Then
a partial 0-adjustment is made.
The HM8112-3 has no AUTO ZERO function,
because the zero adjustment of the complete
measurement circuit is very important.
LOCAL
By sending a command via interface to the HM8112-3 the
instrument is set to the remote mode. Remote control is
switched off by pressing button LOCAL. The instrument
returns to manual mode and can be operated from the front
panel.
Buttons for the various measurement functions
If the measurement function is changed, the HM8112-3
assumes the sampling rate selected, unless a sampling rate
between 10 s and 60 s is chosen. Then changing the measuring
function will set the sampling rate automatically to 1 s.
The buttons offering more functions are illuminated. Naturally,
other measuring functions can be called up by pressing
unlighted buttons. The terminals are illuminated, too, and
indicate the terminals to be used with the corresponding

Adjustment of measuring section with PT sensor
PT sensors have an output resistance which is mostly referred
in the data sheet. Often the data sheet is lost but the sensor is
still there. In HM8112-3 a value of 100 mΩ is stored by default.
But some PT sensors have an integrated series resistance
(e.g. 10 mΩ). For an optimal adjusted measuring section the
exact output resistance must be known. This applies for 4wire measurement but especially for 2-wire measurements.
Via interface the default value stored ex factory can be aligned.
Values between 0 mΩ and 100 mΩ are possible.
Determination of the output resistance
The PT100 or PT1000 sensor has to be immersed in an ice
bath. At 0 °C the sensor has a resistance of 100 Ω and 1000 Ω
respectively. The resistance of the temperature sensor is taken
by a resistance measurement. The output resistance is the
difference between the measured value and the specified value.

21 AUTO
With button AUTO the auto range function can be activated.
This function is selectable for voltage, current and resistance
measurements.
As the autorange function is activated a higher range will be
selected after the measured value exceeds 90% of full scale.
The HM8112-3 will change to a lower range, if the value falls
below 10% of full scale. If the signal applied exceeds the
specified limits of the instrument in the autorange function,
the display shows “overflow“.
Menu
The autorange function is to be used with care. For
measurements on high impedance source and
measurement voltages in the range (90%) of full
scale 1 V, changing to a higher range is possible
with activated AUTO function. The HM8112-3 has
an input impedance of 10MΩ in the 10 V range
instead of 1 GΩ in the 1 V range. By loading a high
impedance source of several 100 MΩ with by input
impedance of 10 MΩ the measurement result will
HINT be errouneous.
Menu structure
That means, for example, that every 500 ms a measurement
is taken and the value is updated in the display. After switchon a value of 100 ms will be preset. Removal of the line voltage
will not save a selected value.
If the measurement function is changed, the HM8112-3
assumes the default sampling rate, unless a sampling rate
between 10 s and 60 s is chosen. Then changing the measuring
function sets the sampling rate automatically to 1 s.
Example: The sampling rate for VDC is set to 60 s. Then the
function ADC is selected. The instrument will reduce the
sampling rate automatically to 1 s. The new sampling rate
applies to all functions. If a sampling rate greater than 1 s is
needed, it has to be selected after every change of function.
A sampling rate of 60 s means:
The HM8112-3 integrates the input voltage and the
the reference voltage over a period of 60 s. After
expiry of this time the value calculated will be
displayed.

1st: Comp Ext/Ice
An external temperature test point acts as a reference, e.g. an
ice bath or another reference thermocouple with a temperature
of 0° C, connected with the closed end to the measuring point,
and the reference put into the ice bath. The closed end of the
thermocouples can be connected with standard measurement
cables to the terminals of the HM8112-3.
2nd: Comp PT-Front
The temperature measured with a platinum sensor is the
reference for the measurement used with the thermocouples.
If several thermocouples will be attached to the HM8112-3 via
a scanner, the use of the ice bath would be necessary for each
thermocouple. To overcome this, the ambient temperature or
even a source with a constant temperature is taken as the
reference (e.g. ice bath, heated reference). If “PT-Front“ is
seleced by pressing MENU 18 the function ϑPT will be
activated. Now 2- or 4-wire measurement can be chosen. Then
¬
MENU
default
the reference temperature is measured with a platinum sensor
and assumed by confirmation with button MENU 18 . In case
of 2-wire measurement the PT-sensor can stay connected to
the thermocouple. For 4-wire measurement it has to be disconnected and replaced by the connection of the thermocouple.
3rd: Comp 23° C/ °F
A temperature of 23° C is specified as reference. For measurements of high temperatures the resulting measurement error
can be neglected, unless the open end of the thermocouple is
on the level of the ambient temperature. The ambient temperature should be about 23° C.

ccw with a screw driver having a suitable blade. As the cover
can be turned it has to be pushed by the srew driver into the
fuse holder. The cover with the fuse can then be easily taken
out. Replace the defective fuse by a new fuse of the same type
having the same trip current. A repair of a damaged fuse or
the use of other means for bypassing the fuse is very dangerous
and absolutely prohibited! Damages incurred will void the
warranty.

Data communication
Layout of commands
A command consists of 5 ASCII characters:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Character: 0
Character: Command category (0, 1, 2 or E)
Character: Function between 0 and F
Character: Parameter between 0 and F
Character: Terminator, either CR or LF
–
–
all commands end with CR or LF
the character set includes figures 0 – 9, characters A – F
and CR, LF
the characters can be entered as upper case or lower case
letters
Figures 2, 3 and 4 received after 0 are interpreted as a
control command. After a command has been transmitted
a delay of at least 35 ms must be observed, then the next
command can be sent.
A transmission of invalid commands is answered with
2D0LF in case of wrong length of the command or void
command category, with 2D1LF for group 1, with 2D2LF
for group 2 and with 2DELF for group E. This helps
debugging the controller program. The error message is
transmitted immediately after occurrence.
