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 UT205A and UT206A are AC clamp multimeters
(hereafter referred to as "the Meter") with remarkable
features: versatile functions, stable operation, low power
consumption and ergonomic structural design. They
can measure AC/DC voltage, AC current, resistance,
diode, continuity, frequency and temperature(UT206A),etc.
Except where noted, the descriptions and instructions in
this Operating Manual apply to both the Model UT205A
/UT206A
position and no any changeover of range shall be
made when measurement is conducted to prevent
damage of the Meter.
When the Meter is working at an effective voltage
over 60V in DC or 42V 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.
When using the test leads, keep your fingers behind
the finger guards.
Disconnect circuit power and discharge all highvoltage capacitors before testing.
To avoid harm to you or damage to the Meter from
electric shock, please do not attempt to apply higher
than 600V between the terminals and grounding.
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 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 of 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.
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.
Do not use or store the Meter in an environment
of high temperat ure, humidity,explosive, inflamm
-able and strong magnetic field. The performance
of the Meter may deteriorate after dampened
