Measurement Operation(2)
Note
l If the value of voltage to be measured is unknown,
use the maximum measurement position (1000V)
and reduce the range step by step until a satisfactory
reading is obtained.
l The LCD displays "1" indicating the existing selected
range is overloaded, it is required to select a higher
range in order to obtain a correct reading.
l In each range, the Meter has an input impedance of
approx. 10M This loading effect can cause
measurement errors in high impedance circuits. If the
circuit impedance is less than or equal to 10k , the
error is negligible (0.1% or less).
l When DC voltage measurement has been completed,
disconnect the connection between the testing leads
and the circuit under test, and remove the testing
leads away from the input terminal of the Meter.

Note
The test leads can add 0.1 to 0.3 of error to the slowresistance (200 ) measurement. To obtain accurate
readings in low-resistance, short-circuit the input terminals
beforehand and record the reading obtained (called this
reading as X). (X) is the additional resistance from the
test lead.
Then use the equation:
measured resistance value (Y) - (X) = accurate readings
of resistance.
l For high resistance ( & gt; 1M ), it is normal taking several
seconds to obtain a stable reading..
l When there is no input, for example in open circuit
condition, the Meter displays "1".
l When resistance measurement has been completed,
disconnect the connection between the testing leads
and the circuit under test, and remove the testing leads
away from the input terminal of the Meter.
