MANUAL
CAUTION:
* Before attempting to insert transistors capacitor thermocouple for testing, always be sure
that test lest leads have been disconnected from any measurement circuits.
* Components should not be connected to the hFE and capacitor and the thermocouple
socket when making voltage measure with test leads.
*Using this appliance in an environment with a strong radiated radio – frequency

* Always be careful when working with voltage above 60V dc or 30V ac rms. Keep
fingers behind the probe barriers while measuring.
* Before attempting to insert transistors capacitor thermocouple for testing, always be
sure that test leads have been disconnected from any measurement circuits.
* Components should not be connected to the hFE and capacitor socket and the
thermocouple has been removed when making voltage measurements with test
leads.

3.1 MEASURING VOL TAGE
1.Connect the black lead to the COM jack and the red test lest lead to the VΩ Hz
jack.
2. Set the rotary switch at the desired V or V~ range position and connect test
leads across the source or load under measurement.
The polarity of the red lead connection will be indicated along voltage value when
making DC voltage measurement.
3. When only the figure”1” is displayed, it indicates overrange situation and the
higher range have to be selected.
3.2 MEASURING CURRENT
1. Connect the black lead to the COM jack and the test lead to the mA jack for a
maximum of 200mA current. For a maximum of 20A, move the red lead to the A
jack.
2. Set the rotary switch at desired A or A~ range position and connect test leads
in series with the load under measurement.
-9-
The polarity of the red lead connection will be indicated along with the current value
when making DC current measurement.
3. When only the figure”1” displayed, it indicates overrange situation and the higher
range has to be selected.
3.3 MEASURING FREQUECY
1. Connect the black test lead to the COM jack and the red test lead to the VΩHz
jack.
2. Set the rotary switch at kHz position and connect test leads across the source or
load under measurement.
NOTE:
1. Reading is possible at input voltages above 10Vrms, but the accuracy is
guaranteed.
2. ln noisy environment, it is preferable to use shield cable for measuring small
signal.
-103.4 MEASURING RESISTANGE
1. Connect the black test lead to the COM jack and the read to the VΩ Hz jack.
(The polarity of red lead is 〝+〞)
2. Set the rotary switch at desired Ω position and connect test leads across the
resistor under measurement.
NOTE:
1. If the resistance being measured exceeds the maximum value of the range
selected or the input is not connected, an overrange indication 〝 1 〞 will be
displayed.
2. When checking in – circuit resistance, be sure the circuit under test has all power
removed and that all capacitors have been discharged fully.
3. For measuring resistance above 1MΩ, the meter may take a few seconds to get
stable reading. This is normal for high resistance measurements.
4. At 200MΩ range display reading is around 10 counts when test leads are
shorted.
-11These counts have to be subtracted from measuring results. For example, when
measuring 100MΩ resistance the display reading will be 101.0 and the correct
measuring result should be 101.0-1.0=100.0MΩ.
3.5 MEASURING CAPACITANCE
1. Set the rotary switch at desired F position.
2. Before inserting capacitor under measurement into capacitance testing socket, be
sure that the capacitor has been discharged fully.
3. When measuring capacitors with shorter leads, a testing adapter is provided with
the meter. Insert the adapter into the capacitance testing socket on the front panel
to continue measurements.
WARNING
To avoid electric shook, be sure the capacitor measuring adapter has been
removed before changing to another function measurement.

3.6 TESTING DIODE
1. Connect the black test lead to COM jack and the red test lead to the VΩHz jack
(The polarity of red lead is〝+〞)
2. Set the rotary switch at
position and connect red lead to the anode, black
lead to the cathode of the diode under testing .The meter will show the approx.
forward voltage of the diode. If the lead connection is reversed. only figure〝1〞
displayed.
3.7 TESTING TRANSISTOR
1. Set the rotary switch at hFE position.
2. Determine whether the transistor to be tested is NPN or PNP type and locate the
Emitter. Base and Collectors. Insert leads of the transistor into proper holes of the
transistor testing socket.
3. The meter will show the approx. hFE value at test condition of base current 10μA
and Vce 3.2V.
-133.8 CONTINUTITY TEST
1. Connect the black test lead to the COM jack and the red test lead to the V Ω Hz
jack. (The polarity of the red lead is positive〝+〞)
position and connect test leads across two points of
2. Set the rotary switch at
the circuit under testing. If continuity exists (i.e., resistance less than about 50Ω),
built - in buzzer will sound.
3.9 MEASURING TEMPERATURE
1. Set the rotary switch at TEMP position and the LCD display will show the current
environment temperature.
2. Insert〝K〞type thermocouple into the temperature measuring socket on the front
panel and contact the object to be measured with the thermocouple probe. Read LCD
display.
WARNING: To avoid electric shock, be sure the thermocouple has been removed
before changing to another function measurement.

The holster is used to protect the meter and to make the measurement more comfortable.
It comes with two stands installed together. The figure shows how to use the holster to:
a. Support the meter with a standard angle.
b. Support the meter with a small angle using the little stand
c. Hang the meter on the wall using the little stand. Take the little stand off from the back
side of the large stand and insert it into holes located upper on the holster.
d. Hold test leads.
-246. BATTERY & FUSE REPLACEMENT
If the sign”
”appears on the LCD display, it indicates that battery should be replaced.
Remove screws on the back cover and open the case. Replace the exhausted battery with a
new one.
Fuse rarely need replacement and blow almost always as a result of the operator’s error.
Open the case as mentioned above, and then take the PCB out from the front cover. Replace
the blown fuse with same ratings.
WARNING
Before attempting to open the case, be sure that test leads have been disconnected from
measurement circuits to avoid electric shock hazard.
For protection against fire, replace fuse only with specified ratings: F 200mA/250V (quick acting).
