Safety Information
•
The RS-1007 Pro and RS-3 Pro Analog Clamp meters conform to
EN61010-1:2001; EN61010- 2-032:2002; CAT IV 600 V, class II and pollution
deg.2
•
This instrument is EN61010-1 certified for Installation Category IV (600V).
It is recommended for use in primary supply lines, overhead lines and
cable systems and distribution level and fixed installations, as well as lesser
installations.
•
Do not exceed the maximum overload limits per function (see
specifications) nor the limits marked on the instrument itself. Never apply
more than 600 V ac rms between the test lead and earth ground.
 Warnings and Precautions
•
Before and after hazardous voltage measurements, test the voltage
function on a known source such as line voltage to determine proper
meter functioning.
•
Disconnect the test leads from the test points before changing meter
functions.
•
Disconnected from the meter’s test leads before measuring current.
•
Inspect the Clampmeter, test leads and accessories before every use. Do
not use any damaged part.
•
Never ground yourself when taking measurements. Do not touch exposed
circuit elements or test probe tips.
•
Do not operate the instrument in an explosive atmosphere.
•
To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this product to
rain or moisture.
•
The meter is intended only for indoor use. To avoid electrical shock
hazard, observe the proper safety precautions when working with
voltages above 60 VDC, 42.4 Vpk, or 30 VAC rms. These voltage levels pose
a potential shock hazard to the user.
•
Before and after hazardous voltage measurements, test the voltage
function on a known source such as line voltage to determine proper
meter functioning.
•
Keep your hands/fingers behind the hand/finger barriers (of the meter
and the test leads) that indicate the limits of safe access of the hand-held
part during measurement.
•
Inspect test leads, connectors, and probes for damaged insulation or
exposed metal before using the instrument. If any defects are found,
replace them immediately.
•
This Clamp-on meter is designed to apply around or remove from uninsulated hazardous live conductors. Individual protective equipment must
be used if hazardous live parts of the installation could be accessible.
•
Exercise extreme caution when: measuring voltage >20 V // current >10
mA // AC power line with inductive loads // AC power line during electrical
storms // current, when the fuse blows in a circuit with open circuit voltage
>1000 V // servicing CRT equipment.
•
Remove test leads before opening the case to change the battery.
 CAUTION
•
For non-invasive ACA current measurements, clamp the jaws around only
one single conductor of a circuit for load current measurement. More than
1 conductor will cause false readings.
 CAUTION
•
Verify the needle lock is released before making measurements.

Introduction
The RS-1007 Pro and RS-3 Pro Analog Clamp-On meters are manual ranging
1000 / 600 ACA and 600 V clamp meter. The features include AC voltage, AC
current, and Resistance test ranges. Both clampmeters have a mechanical
needle clamp to prevent needle damage during transportation.
Operation
Measuring AC Voltage (See Fig. 1)
 CAUTION
Remove clamp jaws from wire before connecting to or measuring voltage.
1. Rotate the meter scale wheel to appropriate V range.
2. Using the V A Zero screw (front panel), adjust the needle for ‘0’.
3. Connect the test leads: Red to + and Black to COM.
4. Connect the test probes to the circuit test points.
5. Read the needle location on the meter scale and, if necessary, correct any
overload (needle pegged) conditions.
AC Current Measurement (See Fig. 2)
 CAUTION
Disconnect test leads from circuit and meter if voltage was being tested.
1. Rotate the meter scale wheel to appropriate A range.
2. Using the V A Zero screw (front panel), adjust the needle for ‘0’.
3. Open spring-loaded clamp by pressing the lever on left side of meter.
4. Position clamp around one wire or conductor and release the clamp lever.
5. Read the needle location on the meter scale, and, if necessary, correct any
overload (needle pegged) conditions.
 CAUTION
Using Resistance or Continuity function in a live circuit will produce false
results and may damage the instrument. In most cases the suspected
component must be disconnected from the circuit to obtain an accurate
measurement reading.
Measuring Resistance /Continuity (See Fig. 3)
1. Rotate the meter scale wheel to Ω range.
2. Turn off power to the circuit being measured and discharge any capacitors
in the circuit.
3. Connect the test leads: Red to + and Black to COM.
4. Short the test leads and adjust Ω Zero knob for ‘0’ Ω.
5. Remove the short from the test leads.
6. Using the V A Zero screw, adjust the needle for ∞.
7. Connect the test probes across the resistance.
8. Read the needle location on the meter scale, and, if necessary, correct any
overload (needle pegged) conditions.
Maintenance and Repair
If there appears to be a malfunction during the operation of the meter, the
following steps should be performed in order to isolate the cause of the
problem:
1. Verify the needle lock is disengaged (all the way to the left). Needle
should move when meter is moved.
2. Check the battery and fuse (ohms range only).
3. Review the operating instructions for possible mistakes in operating
procedure.
4. Inspect and test the test leads for a broken or intermittent connection.
Except for the replacement of the fuse, battery or test probes, repair of the
multimeter should be performed only by a Factory Authorized Service Center
6
or by other qualified instrument service personnel. The front panel and case
can be cleaned with a mild solution of detergent and water. Apply sparingly
with a soft cloth and allow to dry completely before using. Do not use
aromatic hydrocarbons or chlorinated solvents for cleaning.
Battery Replacement (see Fig. 4)
 Warning
To prevent electrical shock or meter damage, disconnect the meter’s test
leads from any circuit and the meter, then turn the meter off before
removing the battery cover. Battery replacement should be performed in a
clean environment and with appropriate care taken to avoid contaminating
the meter’s interior components.
1. Remove the screw and lift the battery cover.
2. Remove the battery using the pull strap.
3. Replace the battery with the same type, 1.5 V AAA battery (NEDA-24A, IEC
LR03). Note polarity of the battery.
4. Replace the battery cover and screw.
Fuse Replacement
1. Remove the screw and lift the battery cover.
2. Remove the battery using the pull strap.
3. Remove the fuse using the pull strap.
4. Replace the fuse with F 0.5 A Fuse (FP500)
5. Replace the battery noting the polarity of the battery.
6. Replace the battery cover and screw.
