SAFETY INFORMATION
The open jaw digit electrical tester has been designed
according to IEC1010 – 1 and IEC1010 – 2 – 032
concerning safety requirements for electrical measuring
instruments and hand – held current clamps with an
overvoltage category (CAT III) and pollution 2.
The open jaw digit electrical tester complies with the
requirements of the following European Community
Directives: 89/336/EEC ( Electromagnetic Compatibility )
and 73/23/EEC (Low Voltage) as amended by 93/68/EEC
(CE Marking).
However, electrical noise or intense electromagnetic
fields in the vicinity of the equipment may disturb the
measurement circuit. Measuring instruments will also
respond to unwanted signals that may be present within
the measurement circuit.
Users should exercise care and take appropriate
precautions to avoid misreadings.

Read these operating instructions thoroughly and
completely before operating your meter. Pay
particular attention to WARNINGS, which will
inform you of potentially dangerous procedures.
Follow the instructions in these warnings.
Always inspect your meter and test leads for any
sign of damage or abnormality before every use. If
any abnormal conditions exist (i.e. broken test
leads, cracked cases, display not reading, etc.), do
not attempt to take any measurements.
Do not expose the instrument to direct sunlight,
extreme temperature or moisture.
Never ground yourself when taking electrical
measurements. Do not touch exposed metal pipes,

backlight is dimly lit, the battery must be replaced to
maintain proper operation. Use the following procedure
to replacing the battery:
1. The Rotary Switch is used to select OFF. Disconnect
test leads from any live source and remove the test
leads from the input terminals.
2. Remove screws on the battery cover and open the
cover.
3. Remove the exhausted battery and replace with a
new 9-voltage battery (IEC 6F22 JIS 006P NEDA
1604 type).
4. Never use the multimeter unless the battery cover is
in place and fastened fully.
