UNI-T UT203 400-600A Digital Clamp Meter Manual
When measurement has been completed, disconnect the connection between
the test leads and the circuit under test, remove the testing leads away from the
input terminals of the Meter and turn the Meter power off.
The rotary switch should be placed in the right position and no any changeover
of range shall be made when measurement is conducted to prevent damage of
the Meter.
Do not carry out the measurement when the Meter’s back case and battery
compartment are not closed to avoid electric shock.
Do not input higher than 600V between the two Meter’s input terminal to avoid
electric shock and damages to the Meter.
When the Meter is working at an effective voltage over 60V in DC or 30V rms in
AC, special care should be taken for there is danger of electric shock.
Use the proper terminals, function, and range for your measurements.
Do not use or store the Meter in an environment of high temperature, humidity,
explosives, inflammables and strong magnetic field. The performance of the
Meter may deteriorate after dampened.
When using the test leads, keep your fingers behind the finger guards.
Disconnect circuit power and discharge all high-voltage capacitors before testing
resistance, continuity and diode.
Replace the battery as soon as the battery indicator
appears. With a low
battery, the Meter might produce false readings that can lead to electric shock
and personal injury.
When servicing the Meter, use only use the replacement parts with the same
model or identical electrical specifications.
The internal circuit of the Meter shall not be altered at will to avoid damage to
the Meter and any accident.
Soft cloth and mild detergent should be used to clean the surface of the Meter
when servicing. No abrasive and solvent should be used to prevent the surface
of the Meter from corrosion, damage and accident.
The Meter is suitable for indoor use.
Turn the Meter off when it is not in use and take out the battery when not using
for a long time.
Constantly check the battery as it may leak when it has been using for some time,
replace the battery as soon as leaking appears. A leaking battery will damage
the Meter.
Overview
This Operating Manual covers information on safety and cautions. Please read the
relevant information carefully and observe all the Warnings and Notes strictly.
Warning
To avoid electric shock or personal injury, read the “Safety Information” carefully
before using the Meter.
Model UT203/204 (hereafter referred to as "the Meter") is 4000-count stable, safe
and reliable digital clamp multimeter. They are designed with large-scale integrated
circuits and A/D converter as the core as well as the overload protection and novel
structure, which make them a superb tool for electricians.
The Meter can not only measure AC/DC Voltage, AC/DC Current, Frequency, Duty
Cycle, Resistance, Diodes, Continuity but also it has Data Hold, Sleep Mode and
Relative Mode features.
Open the package case and take out the Meter. Check the following items carefully
for any missing or damaged part:

Safety Information
This Meter complies with the standard IEC61010: Pollution Degree 2, Overvoltage
Category (CAT. II 600V, CAT. III 300V) and Double Insulation.
CAT. II: Local level, appliance, PORTABLE EQUIPMENT etc., with smaller transient
overvoltages than CAT. III.
CAT. III: Distribution level, fixed installation, with smaller transient overvoltages than
CAT. IV
Use the Meter only as specified in this operating manual, otherwise the protection
provided by the Meter may be impaired.
In this manual, a Warning identifies conditions and actions that pose hazards to the
user, or may damage the Meter or the equipment under test.
A Note identifies the information that user should pay attention to.
Warning
To avoid possible electric shock or personal injury, and to avoid possible damage
to the Meter or to the equipment under test, adhere to the following rules:
Before using the Meter inspect the case. Do not use the Meter if it is damaged
or the case (or part of the case) is removed. Look for cracks or missing plastic.
Pay attention to the insulation around the connectors.
Inspect the test leads for damaged insulation or exposed metal. Check the test
leads for continuity. Replace damaged test leads with identical model number
or electrical specifications before using the Meter.
Do not apply more than the rated voltage, as marked on the Meter, between the
terminals or between any terminal and grounding. If the value to be measured
is unknown, use the maximum measurement position and reduce the range step
by step until a satisfactory reading is obtained.

Warning
To avoid damage to the Meter or to the devices
under test, disconnect circuit power and discharge
all the high-voltage capacitors before testing
diodes.
Use the diode test to check diodes, transistors, and
other semiconductor devices. The diode test sends
a current through the semicondutor junction, then
measure the voltage drop across the junction. A
good silicon junction drops between 0.5V and 0.8V.
To test the diode out of a circuit, connect the Meter
as follows:

D. Testing for Continuity (See Figure 6)
4. Center the conductor within the transformer jaw, then release the Meter slowly until
the trasnformer jaw is completely closed, Make sure the conductor to be tested
is placed at the center of the transformer jaw, otherwise it will casue deviation.
The Meter can only measure one conductor at a time, measuring more than one
condutor at a time will cause deviation..
Warning
To avoid damage to the Meter or to the devices
under test, disconnect circuit power and discharge
all the high-voltage capacitors before measuring
continuity.
To test for continuity, connect the Meter as follows:
1. Insert the red test lead into the Hz Duty%

under test is less than 50
The buzzer may or may not sounds if the resistance of a circuit under test is
between 50 to 100
The buzzer does not sound if the resistance of a circuit under test is higher than
100
Note
When continuity testing has been completed, disconnect the connection between
the testing leads and the circuit under test and remove testing leads from the input
terminals.
E. Measuring Frequency (See Figure 7)
To avoid harm to you or damage to the Meter
from eletric shock, do not attempt to measure
voltages higher than 600V AC/DC, although
readings may be obtained.
The frequency ranges are:
10Hz, 100Hz, 1kHz, 10kHz, 100kHz, 1MHz and

Note
When frequency measurement has been completed, disconnect the connection
between the testing leads and the circuit under test, and remove the testing leads
away from the input terminals of the Meter.
F. Measuring Duty Cycle(See Figure 8)
Warning
To avoid harm to you or damage to the Meter
from eletric shock, do not attempt to measure
voltages higher than 600V AC/DC, although
readings may be obtained.
The duty cycle range is: 0.1%~99.9%.
To measure duty cycle, connect the Meter as follows:

Sleep Mode
To preserve battery life, the Meter automatically turns off if you do not turn the rotary
switch or press any button for around 15 minutes.
The Meter can be activated by turning the rotary switch or pressing the button based
on ‘The Effectiveness of Functional Buttons” on section. Pressing SELECT to
activate the Meter will disable the Sleep Mode feature.
The Meter beeps 5 times in about 1 minute before entering Sleep Mode and will
have a 1 long beep just before entering Sleep Mode.
To disable the Sleep Mode function, press and hold SELECT button while turning on
the Meter.
