VIII. Operation Instructions

  1. Measuring of AC Voltage/Frequency/DC Voltage• Select AC voltage/frequency or DC voltage tap position.• Insert red probe into red jack (positive end), and insertblack probe into blackjack (COM end).• Touch the measured part with red and black probes,such as power socket (Figure II).• Read the measured value from LCD screen.When measuring voltage or frequency, the maximum input voltage is 600V (AC/DC), and this is not allowed to be exceeded; otherwise, it is possible to causeelectric shock and damage the instrument.
  2. Measuring of Resistance/Circuit on-off/ Diode /Capacitance• Select corresponding functions.• Insert red probe into red jack (positive end), and insert black probe into black jack (COM end).• Connect the probe in parallel to the measured part (Figure 3).• Read the measured value from LCD screen. Do not input voltage of higher than DC 60V or AC 30V , when measuring the range of resistance/capacitance/ diode, in order to avoid personal injury or damage of instrument.
  3. 3. Measuring of AC/DC Current (Figure 4)1) AC current• Select geometric center position of AC current tap position; make sure the left and right clamp heads are completely closed, with no gap between them.Read the measured data from LCD.2) DC current• Select DC current tap position.• Press the ZERO reset key before measuring to clear the readings to zero.• Open the clamp head, clasp the wire (single wire), and put the wire in the geometric center indicated in the clamp head. Make sure that the left and right clampheads are completely closed, without gap between them.• Read the measured data from LCD. If the reading is positive, it means current flows from positive end marked on the clamp head to the negative end, and vice versa.Take out the probe when measuring current, in order to avoid electric shock.
  4. 4. Measuring of NCV Non-contact Electric Field (Figure 5) The front end of clamp head can be used for sensing at 8-15mm from the tested object, in order to detect theexistence of AC voltage or electromagnetic field. When the simulating value of AC voltage: <,;threshold voltage of 1 OOV, it displays “EF”; > threshold voltage of 1 OOV, LCD will display”-“, i.e.,”-“,”–,”—” and”—” corresponding to the sensing voltage. Meanwhile, the buzzer will ring with differentiated rhythms and NCV light will flash, todistinguish the intensity of the electric field. When measuring range is switched to NCV measuring, the measuring probe shall be pulled out to avoid electric shock.
  5. Measuring of Temperature• Temperature sensor. only applicable to K type temperature sensor.• Switch to select temperature tap position.• Input end open circuit instrument displays OL, and displays ambient temperature in case of short circuit.• Connect to K type temperature sensor with black probe into COM end and red probe into °C end to measure 0 ( or °F values. °F=1.8°C +32 Caution:K type (nickel-chromium to nickel-silicon) point thermocouple temperature sensor configured is only applicable to measurement of temperature below 230°C/446°F. Measuring of higher temperature shall be performed with K type temperature sensor with applicable measuring range.
  6. Other Functions• Holding the HOLD key for 2 seconds to turn on or off LCD backlight. e Auto-OFF If the knob switch is not operated for 15 minutes during the process of measuring, the instrument will start “Auto-OFF” to save energy. During auto-OFF status, click any key to wake up the instrument, or turn the knob switch to OFF and restart it again. Auto-OFF means that the instrument enters super-low power consumption status.• Stop auto-OFF: Hold SELECT key, and then connect and start the instrument, 5 times of buzzing will be given out to prompt that the autoOFF function will be cancelled. The auto-OFF function will be resumed when the instrument is switched off and then restarted.• The buzzer will give out 5 times of alarm around 1 minute before starting auto-OFF status, and give out 1 long alarm before power-off. When auto-OFF function is cancelled, thebuzzer will give out 5 times of alarm every 15 minutes.• Buzzer: buzzer will give out a short “beep” (about 0.25 second) if pressing any key or switching to valid functions. In tap positions, if the tested circuit is in sound conductivity(<,;100), the buzzer will keep ringing. When the measured AC/DC voltage is higher than 600V or current is higher than200A, the buzzer will also give out continuously interrupted “Beep” sound to warn against over-range.• Low voltage detection: when the voltage is lower than 2.5V, low battery symbol “a” will be displayed, when measuring accuracy might be reduced, and new battery shall be usedin time. If the voltage is lower than 2.2V, the instrument will only show low battery symbol after starting, but will not work.• When battery supply voltage is reduced to 2.6V, LCD backlight will be dim or cannot be started, but measuring function can still be available.
