Do not operate in an explosive atmosphere.
Keep product surfaces clean and dry.
Only the qualified technicians can implement the maintenance.
Measurement Limits The protection circuitry of the multimeter can prevent damage to the instrument and protect against the danger of electric shock, when the Measurement Limits are not exceeded. To ensure safe operation of the instrument, do not exceed the Measurement Limits shown on the front panel, it is defined as follows:
The user-replaceable 10 A current-protection fuse is on the front panel. To maintain protection, replace fuse only with fuse of the specified type and rating. About the specified type and rating of the fuse, please refer to "7 Current Terminal Fuse" in "Front Panel Overview" on page 7.
Main Input Terminals (HI Input and LO Input) Measurement Limits The HI and LO input terminals are used for voltage, resistance, continuity, frequency (period), capacitance, diode, and temperature test measurements. Two Measurement Limits are defined for these terminals: HI Input to LO Input Measurement Limit The Measurement Limit from HI Input to LO Input is 1000 VDC or 750 VAC, which is also the maximum voltage measurement. This limit can also be expressed as 1000 Vpk maximum. LO Input to Ground Measurement Limit The LO input terminal can safely "float" a maximum of 500 Vpk relative to ground, where ground is defined as the Protective Earth Conductor in the AC mains power cord connected to the instrument. As implied by the above limits, the Measurement Limit for the HI input terminal is a maximum of 1500 Vpk relative to ground when LO Input is at its maximum of 500 Vpk relative to ground.
Current Input Terminal (I) Measurement Limits The Measurement Limit from the current input terminal (I) to the LO Input terminal is 10 A (DC or AC). Note that the current input terminals will always be at approximately the 3
1.Safety Information same voltage as the LO Input terminal, unless a current protection fuse is open.
Sense Terminals (HI Sense and LO Sense) Measurement Limits The HI and LO sense terminals are used for four-wire resistance measurements. The Measurement Limit from HI Sense to LO Input is 200 Vpk. The Measurement Limit from HI Sense to LO Sense is 200 Vpk. The Measurement Limit from LO Sense to LO Input is 2 Vpk. Note: The 200 Vpk limit on the sense terminals is the Measurement Limit. Operational voltages in resistance measurements are much lower – up to ± 3 V in normal operation.
Measurement Category The safety rating of the multimeter: 1000 V, CAT I IEC Measurement Category I. The maximum measurable voltage is 1000 Vpk in the HI -LO terminal. 600 V, CAT II IEC Measurement Category II. Inputs may be connected to AC mains power (up to 600 VAC) under Category II overvoltage conditions.
Measurement category definition Measurement CAT I applies to measurements performed on circuits not directly connected to the AC mains. Examples are measurements on circuits not derived from the AC mains and specially protected (internal) mains- derived circuits. Measurement CAT II applies to protect against transients from energy-consuming equipment supplied from the fixed installation, such as TVs, PCs, portable tools, and other household circuits. Measurement CAT III applies to protect against transients in equipment in fixed equipment installations, such as distribution panels, feeders and short branch circuits, and lighting systems in large buildings. Measurement CAT IV applies to measurements performed at the source of the lowvoltage installation. Examples are electricity meters and measurements on primary over current protection devices and ripple control units.
2. Quick Start General Inspection After you get a new multimeter, it is recommended that you should make a check on the instrument according to the following steps: 1. Check whether there is any damage caused by transportation. If it is found that the packaging carton or the foamed plastic protection cushion has suffered serious damage, do not throw it away first till the complete device and its accessories succeed in the electrical and mechanical property tests. 2. Check the Accessories The supplied accessories have been already described in the Appendix A: Enclosure of this Manual. You can check whether there is any loss of accessories with reference to this description. If it is found that there is any accessory lost or damaged, please get in touch with our distributor responsible for this service or our local offices. 3. Check the Complete Instrument If it is found that there is damage to the appearance of the instrument, or the instrument cannot work normally, or fails in the performance test, please get in touch with our distributor responsible for this business or our local offices. If there is damage to the instrument caused by the transportation, please keep the package. With the transportation department or our distributor responsible for this business informed about it, a repairing or replacement of the instrument will be arranged by us.

Troubleshooting 1. The instrument is powered on but no Display. 1) Check if the power is connected properly. 2) Check if the line fuse which is below the AC Mains Input is used appropriately and in good condition (see page 15, Appendix C: Line Fuse Replacement). 3) Restart the instrument after the steps above. 4) If the problem still exists, please contact us for our service. 2. The reading does not change when a current signal is input. 1) Check whether the test lead is correctly inserted into the current input terminals (I terminal and LO Input terminal). 2) Check whether the current terminal fuse at the front panel is burned out. Please refer to "7 Current Terminal Fuse" in "Front panel overview" on page 7. 3) Check whether the DCI or ACI measurement function is enabled. 4) Check whether the DCI measurement function is used to measure AC current. If you encounter other problems, try to reset the settings or restart the instrument. If it still cannot work properly, please contact us for our service, and provide your device information (press the front panel
3. Appendix Appendix A: Enclosure Standard Accessories (subject to final delivery):
Appendix B: General Care and Cleaning General Care Do not store or leave the instrument where the liquid crystal display will be exposed to direct sunlight for long periods of time. Cleaning To clean the instrument exterior, perform the following steps: 1.
To prevent electrical shock, disconnect the instrument from AC mains power and disconnect all test leads before cleaning.
Clean the outside of the instrument using a wet soft cloth not dripping water. Do not make any scuffing when cleaning the LCD screen. To avoid damage to the instrument, do not use any corrosive chemical cleaning agent.
Caution: To avoid any damage to the instrument, do not exposed it to any sprays, liquids, or solvents. Warning: Before power on again for operation, it is required to confirm that the instrument has already been dried completely, avoiding any electrical short circuit or bodily injury resulting from the moisture.
Appendix C: Line Fuse Replacement The line fuse is in the plastic fuse box below the power line input on the rear panel. Warning: Disconnect the line cord at the rear panel and remove all test leads connected to the instrument before replacing the line fuse. Failure to do so could expose the operator to hazardous voltages that could result in personal injury or death. Use only the correct fuse type. Failure to do so could result in personal injury or instrument damage. Voltage

250 V, F1AL
To perform the line fuse replacement, follow these steps: 1.
Turn off the multimeter, remove all measurement leads and other cables from the instrument, including the power cord.
2. Use a flat-blade screwdriver to remove the fuse box.
Replace the fuse with a new one, which should match with the rating; install it into the fuse box, and push the fuse box back on to the rear panel.
