Operation
AC VOLTAGE MEASUREMENTS
1. Set the function switch to the V AC position (AUTO,T-RMS and AC volts will appear on the display).
2. Insert the black test lead in the COM jack and the red test lead into the V jack.
3. Connect the test probe tips to the circuit under test.
4. Read the voltage on the display.
DC VOLTAGE MEASUREMENTS
1. Set the function switch to the V DC position (AUTO and DC volts will be appear on the display).
2. Insert the black test lead into the COM jack and the red test lead into the V jack.
3. Connect the test probe tips to the circuit under test. Be sure to observe the correct polarity (red lead to positive, black lead to negative)
4. Read the voltage on the display. If the polarity is reversed, the display will show (-) minus before the reading.
RESISTANCE (Ω) MEASUREMENTS
1. Set the function switch to the Ω position (AUTO and MΩ will appear on the display).
2. In addition, O.L will be displayed indicating an open circuit.
3. Insert the black test lead into the COM jack and the red test lead into the Ω jack.
4. Connect the test probe tips to the circuit under test.
5. According to measured value the reading will be in Ω, kΩ or MΩ.
Note: The AVO410 provides an open circuit voltage <-1.5 V to the circuit under
test which will cause transistor junctions to conduct so it is advisable to
disconnect the item to be tested from the circuit to obtain an accurate reading.
DIODE / CONTINUITY TESTS
WARNING: To avoid electric shock never test a diode or conduct a continuity
test on an energized circuit.
1. Set the function switch to the diode/continuity position. (The diode and V symbols will appear).
2. In addition, .OL will be displayed indicating an open circuit.
3. Insert the black test lead into the COM jack and the red test lead into the Ω jack.
6
4. For continuity connect the test probes to the cable or circuit to be tested. (Polarity is not important).
5. The AVO410 will emit a tone if continuity is below 500 Ω / .OL with no tone will indicate either open circuit or continuity above 500 Ω.
6. For diode testing connect the test probe tips to the diode or semiconductor junction and note the reading.
7. Reverse the probe polarity by switching probe position and note this reading.
8. The diode or junction can be evaluated as follows:
a. If one reading shows a value and the other reading shows .OL, the diode is good.
b. If both readings show .OL, the device is open circuit.
c. If both readings are very small or zero, the device is shorted.

3. Remove power from circuit under test, then open circuit at a convenient point where current is to be measured.
4. Connect the black test probe to the negative side of the circuit. Connect the red test probe to the positive side of the circuit.
5. Carefully apply the power
6. Read the measured on the display.
7. Remove supply before removing test leads and reconnecting circuit.
CAPACITANCE MEASUREMENTS
WARNING: To avoid damage to the instrument. Before testing, discharge the
capacitor/s to be tested.

FEATURE BUTTONS
BACKLIGHT
The AVO410 has a backlit display for all the different functions which has an
auto off in 60 seconds.
8
MIN MAX
The MIN MAX function enables the user to display both a minimum and a
maximum measured reading.To activate, first select a function and make a
measurement. Press the MIN MAX button to store the maximum reading.
Should the value increase then the new value will be stored. Pressing the
MIN MAX button once more will switch the instrument display to minimum
reading.
Pressing the HOLD button while in MIN MAX mode will stop the AVO410 updating the maximum and minimum displayed reading. Holding down the MIN
MAX button for >1 sec. will switch the
function off.
HOLD
Press the HOLD button to freeze the reading on the display.The MIN MAX
function is unavailable when the Hold is active.
RS-232
With an optional USB adapter and software the AVO410 can be
utilised with a computer to provide a virtual multimeter mode.
RANGE
When any of the individual functions are first selected the unit will be in the
auto ranging mode.
Each successive press of the range button will enable the operator to manually
choose a required range.
AUTO POWER OFF / DISABLE
If the meter is idle for more than 10 minutes, the meter automatically turns the
display off. During this off time the last reading on the meter is stored.The
AVO410 can be restored by pressing any button.
To disable the power off function simultaneously hold down the MIN MAX,
RS232 and Range buttons and switch instrument to required function.

MAINTENANCE
To clean the instrument, do not immerse in water, periodically wipe the case
with a damp cloth and mild detergent. Dirt in the terminals may affect readings.
Remove the battery if the AVO410 is not to be used for a long period of time.
When the low battery symbol
appears on the display, replace the battery.
To replace battery remove instrument from black boot and unscrew two
screws on battery cover to reveal battery.
An internal user replaceable fuse can be accessed for replacement by unscrewing
the four deep recess screws. Carefully separate the two halves of the tester
taking care of battery lead. Use only the recommended replacement fuse
(10 A 500 V 32 mm).
