Operation
Powering the meter
1. Select a means of powering the unit (9V battery, external pack, or optional AC
adapter). The 9V battery compartment is located on the rear (bottom) of the meter
secured by one Phillips head screw. The AC adapter and the External Battery Pack
plug into the DC12V jack located on the back of the meter just above the tilt stand. The
Battery Pack holds six 1.5V 'AA' batteries. The optional AC Adapter is recommended
for heavy usage.
2. Press the red ON/OFF button to turn the meter ON.
3. Wait until the STANDBY display extinguishes before using the meter.
4. To turn the meter OFF, press the red ON/OFF button again.
Note: The 422123 calibrator will begin to output the desired
signal after the user presses ENTER or immediately after the
fifth digit has been entered.
DC Milliamp Outputs (4 to 20, 0 to 20, and 0 to 24mA)
1. Ensure that the meter's test leads are not shorted or connected to any devices.
2. Slide the function switch to the mA position and wait for the STANDY display to
extinguish.
3. Connect the meter's red (positive) and black (negative) test leads to the device or
circuit under calibration. Use banana-to-alligator leads if necessary.
4. Select the desired mA output range by pressing the SHIFT button and then one of the
current output keys:
4-20mA output
0-20mA output
0-24mA output
5. Enter a mA current output using the numeric keys (for example, press '5') then ENTER
to output 5mA or press 5.0000. Note that the 5-digit LCD can only accept 5 digits.
6. If the circuit under calibration is open or if the load that the meter is driving is greater
than 1000Ω, the meter will display the OL (overload) alarm warning and will emit a
series of beeps.

DC Voltage Output (0 to 1V, 0 to 12V, 0 to 100mV)
1. Ensure that the meter's test leads are not shorted or connected to any devices.
2. Slide the function switch to the 'V, mV' position and wait for STANDBY to extinguish.
3. Connect the meter's red (positive) and black (negative) test leads to the device or
circuit under test. Use alligator clips if necessary.
4. Select the desired output range by pressing the SHIFT button and then the voltage
range key (mV 1V 12V) until the range is selected. The following meter displays (on
left) correspond to the ranges shown at right:
00.000 V:
0 to 12.000V range
0.0000 V:
0 to 1.0000V range
000.00 mV: 0 to 100.00mV range
5. Once the proper range is selected, press the SHIFT button again.
6. Enter an output voltage value using the numeric keys (for example, in the 100mV
range, press '50') then ENTER. Keep in mind that the maximum number of digits that
can be entered is 5.
7. If the circuit under calibration is shorted, the meter will display the OL (overload) alarm
warning and will emit a series of beeps.
Temperature Output (Type K, J, E, T Thermocouple Simulations)
o
o
1. Slide the function switch to the ' C/ F' position and wait for the STANDBY display to
extinguish.
2. Connect the thermocouple connection cable to the meter's TC output (the jack is
located just above the ON/OFF switch). 'K' and 'J' type thermocouples are supplied.
3. Connect the other end of the thermocouple cable to the device under calibration.
4. Select the thermocouple type to simulate by pressing the SHIFT button and then the '6/
KJET' key until the desired type appears on the right side of the LCD (Type K, J, E, or
T).
5. After selecting the type press the SHIFT button again.
6. Type a temperature output value using the numeric keypad and then press ENTER.
Note there is a 4-digit limit. To type a negative temperature value, press the minus key
first, then enter the desired output temperature.
7. A signal will be sent to the device under calibration (a panel meter, for example)
simulating a thermocouple.
8. Press the SHIFT key then the '°F°C' key to select the correct unit of measure.
NOTE: Connect the thermocouple connecting cable to the meter and the device under
calibration well in advance of use (20 minutes or so) to acclimate the devices to the
ambient temperature. This will ensure optimal precision.
Frequency Output (1kΩ min. load)
1. Ensure that the meter's test leads are not shorted or connected to any devices.
2. Slide the function switch to the 'Hz' position and wait for STANDBY to extinguish.
3. Connect the meter's red (positive) and black (negative) test leads to the device or
circuit under calibration. Use the banana-alligator clip leads if necessary.
4. Enter the desired frequency using the numeric keypad. Note that the top (smaller) LCD
digits are a continuation of the main LCD digits string; this provides the full display
resolution required.
5. All frequencies below 125Hz are available in 1 Hz steps. Selected frequencies from
125 to 62,500 Hz are available per the list in the Appendix table at end of manual.

Advanced Functions
Programming an Output in Percent (Current and Voltage Outputs Only)
Output values can also be programmed in percent. For example, a 4 to 20mA output can
be programmed as follows: 0% = 4mA, 50% = 12mA, and 100% = 20mA. The main LCD
digits will reflect the actual output while the top (smaller) digits will display the percentage.
Follow these steps to output a signal in percent:
1. Setup a test as described earlier for a current or voltage output.
2. Press the SHIFT button so that the word SHIFT appears on the LCD.
3. Press the % key.
4. Enter a percentage from 0 to 100% (1% resolution) using the numeric keys.
5. Press the ENTER key.
6. The current or voltage signal will be output from the meter.
7. 0% corresponds to the lowest value in the range ('4mA' for 4 to 20mA, '0mV' for 0 to
100mV, for example.) while 100% corresponds to the highest value in the output range
('20mA' for 4 to 20mA range, '100mV' for 0 to 100mV range). All percentages in
between will be linear to the voltage or current ranges.
8. Refer to the list below for the 1% step value for each range:
4 to 20mA:
1% = 0.16mA
0 to 20mA:
1% = 0.2mA
0 to 24mA:
1% = 0.24mA
0 to 100mV:
1% = 1mV
0 to 1V:
1% = 0.01V
0 to 12V:
1% = 0.12V
Step Mode (Current and Voltage Outputs Only)
This feature allows the user to step up and down through the output range in programmed
steps as follows:
1. Setup a test as described earlier for a current or voltage output.
2. Press the SHIFT key and then the % key.
3. Enter a percentage (1 to 100%) using the numeric keys. This percentage will represent
the size of each step. Press the ENTER key when complete.
4. Now each time the '8 % ' key is pressed, the output signal will be increased by the
percentage programmed (in the previous step). Press the '0 % ' key to step the
output down by the percentage programmed.
5. For example, for a 4 to 20mA output type and a step percentage of 25%, the following
steps are possible:
0% = 4mA
25% = 8mA
50% = 12mA
75% = 16mA
100% = 20mA

Automatic Ramp Function (Current and Voltage Outputs Only)
The Auto Ramp feature adjusts the meter's output from 0 to 100% →100% to 0% →0 to
100%, and so on. The top (smaller) LCD displays the percent output while the main LCD
digits display the actual signal output.
1. Setup a test as described earlier for a current or voltage output.
2. Press the SHIFT key and then the RAMP 7 key.
3. The output signal will now ramp from 0 to 100%
→100% to 0% →0 to 100%, etc.
4. Press the RAMP 7 key to pause/resume the ramp.
5. Press the SHIFT button to exit this mode and return to normal operation.
Note: Each 1% step has a time interval of 0.08 seconds; therefore it takes 8 seconds to
ramp from 0 to 100%.
Maintenance
9V Battery Replacement
Open the battery compartment on the back of the meter by removing the Phillips head
screw and battery compartment cover. Replace the battery and secure the battery
compartment.
Six 1.5V 'AA' External Battery Replacement
Open the battery pack by the Velcro flap and slide the battery tray out. Replace the six
batteries observing polarity.
Meter Cleaning
Periodically wipe the meter case with a damp cloth. Do not use abrasives or solvents to
clean the meter.
