Operation
6-1 AC Voltage Warning Function
DANGER
● Never make measurements with the battery compartment cover
removed.
CAUTION
● Never press the test button if the live circuit warning lamp is lit or the
warning buzzer sounds. This may damage the circuit.
Voltage check can be made with the range selector switch at any position.
① The presence of AC voltage can be detected. This function operates
automatically when the test button is not depressed, i.e., in the up position.
NOTE:This tester has not been designed to indicate the presence of an
external DC voltage.
② Connect the earth clip of the test probe (black) to the EARTH and the line
probe (red) to the LINE side of the circuit under test.
③ Take the reading on the AC voltage scale.

DANGER
● Always test the circuit or equipment to ensure it is surely de-energized
before measurement according to the instruction of 6-1.
● To avoid electrical shock, measurements must be performed on deenergized circuits only.
● When the test button is pressed with the range selector switch in the
insulation position, take care not to touch the tip of the test probe and the
circuit under test where a high voltage is present in order to avoid possible
shock hazard.
● Never make measurement with the battery compartment cover
removed.
CAUTION
● Never press the test button if the live circuit warning LAMP is lit or the
warning buzzer sounds. This may damage the circuit.
Conduct the voltage warning check before measurement to ensure that the
circuit under test is de-energized.
① Check the voltage which can be applied to the circuit under test and set the
range selector switch to the desired nominal output voltage range.
② Connect the earth clip of the test probe (black) to the earth terminal of the
circuit under test.
③ Put the tip of the line probe (red) to the circuit under test.

④ Check the circuit under test is not energized as follows.
Connect the test probe to the circuit under test and read a voltage value.
If the circuit is live, the meter indicates the voltage, the live circuit lamp is
lit, and warning buzzer sounds.
If the meter indicates 0V, the circuit is dead.
⑤ Press test button. Read the scale directly for the 500V range, multiply by 0.5
for 250V and by 2 for 1000V.
●Continuous Measurement
A lock down feature is incorporated on the test button. Pressing and
turning it clockwise, lock the test button in the continuous operating
position.
To release the lock turn the test button counterclockwise.
Never leave the test button locked down when not is use.
DANGER
Be extremely careful not to get electric shock during insulation resistance
measurement as high voltage is present on the tip of the test probe
continuously.
⑥ With the test probe still connected to the circuit under test after testing,
release the test button to discharge capacitance in the circuit.

The minimum allowable resistance level is 0.25MΩ for the 250V test,
0.5MΩ for the 500V test and 1MΩ for the 1000V test.
● Principle of Insulation Resistance Measurement
Resistance value can be obtained by applying a
certain high voltage to the resistance
(insulation resistance) and measuring the
flowing current.
Resistance Value = Voltage / Current

= V / I
6-3 Continuity Testing (Resistance Tests)
DANGER
Do not touch the circuit under test immediately after testing. Capacitance
stored in the circuit may cause electric shock.
Leave the test probe connected to the circuit and never touch the circuit
until the discharge is completed.

DANGER
● Always test the circuit or equipment to ensure it is surely de-energized
before measurement according to the instruction of 6-1.
● To avoid electrical shock, measurements must be performed on deenergized circuits only.
● Never make measurement with the battery compartment cover
removed.

CAUTION
● Never press the test button if the live circuit warning lamp is lit or the
warning buzzer sounds. This may damage the circuit.
● In case that an additional operating circuit is connected in parallel to the
circuit under measurement, the measurement error might be caused
due to the effects of impedance of the circuit connected in parallel or
transient current.
① Set the range selector switch to the desired position 3( or 500(.
② Short the line probe (red) and the earth clip of the test probe (black) and
press the test button. Adjust the ohm zero adjust to zero the pointer on
the scale.
③ Connect the test probes to the circuit under test.

Battery & Fuse Replacement
DANGER
● Never open the battery compartment cover while making measurement.
To avoid possible electrical shock, disconnect the test probe before
opening the cover for battery and fuse replacement.
● Replacement fuse must be have the following rating.

7-1 Battery Replacement
① Disconnect the test probe from the instrument.
② Open the battery compartment cover by unscrewing the metal captive
screw to reveal battery compartment. Always replace all six batteries
with new ones at the same time.

◎ Cleaning the meter cover
The case can be fitted under the housing case as illustrated bellow.
① Open the case lid as shown.
② Turn it 180 degrees.
③ Put the case lid under
the housing case.
This tester is managed by our company's quality standard and is delivered
in the best condition after passed the inspection. But in the dry time of
winter static electricity sometimes builds up on the meter cover due to the
characteristic of plastic.
When the pointer deflects by touching the surface of this tester or zero
adjustment can not be made, do not try to make measurement.
When static electricity builds up on the meter cover and affects the meter
reading, use a cloth dampened with off-the-shelf anti-statics agent or
detergent to wipe the meter cover surface.
④Hook it on the housing case.
