To avoid possible electric shock or personal injury, and to
avoid possible damage to the Meter or to the equipment
under test, adhere to the following rules:
• Before using the Meter inspect the case. Do not use the
Meter if it is damaged or the case (or part of the case) is
removed. Look for cracks or missing plastic. Pay
attention to the insulation around the connectors.
• Inspect the test leads for damaged insulation or exposed
metal. Check the test leads for continuity. Replace
damaged test leads with identical model number or
electrical specifications before using the Meter.
• Do not apply more than the rated voltage, as marked on
the Meter, between the terminals or between any
terminal and grounding.
• The rotary switch should be placed in the right position
and no any changeover of range shall be made during
measurement is conducted to prevent damage of the
Meter.
• When the Meter working at an effective voltage over 60V
in DC or 30V rms in AC, special care should be taken for
'- there is danger of electric shock.
• Use the proper terminals, function, and range for your
measurements.
• Do not use or store the Meter in an environment of high
temperature, humidity, explosive, inflammable and
strong magnetic field. The performance of the Meter
may deteriorate after dampened.
• When using the test leads, keep your fingers behind the
finger guards.
• Disconnect circuit power and discharge all high-voltage
capacitors before testing resistance, continuity, diodes,
current, or capacitance.
• Before measuring current, check the Meter's fuses and
turn off power to the circuit before connecting the Meter
to the circuit.
• Replace the battery as soon as the battery indicator

false readings that can lead to electric shock and
personal injury.
• Remove test lead, t.emperature probe, RS232C interface
5
cable and test clip from the Meter and turn the Meter
power off before opening the Meter case.
• When servicing the Meter, use only the same model
number or identical electrical specifications replacement
parts.
• The internal circuit of the Meter shall not be altered at
will to avoid damage of the Meter and any accident.
• oft cloth and mild detergent shonld be used to clean the
surface of the Meter when servicing. No abrasive and
solvent should be used to prevent the surface of the Meter
from corrosion, damage and accident.
• The Meter is suitable for indoor use.
• Under the environment with high (+/-4kV) electrostatic
discharge, the Meter may not be operated as normal
condition. The user may require resetting the Meter.
• Please take out the battery when it is not being used for a
prolonged period to avoid damages to the Meter.
• Please constantly check the battery as it may leak when it
has been using for some time, replace the battery as soon
as leaking appears. A leaking battery will damage the Meter.

• The included point contact temperature probe can only be used
up to 250' C. For any measurement higher than that, the rod type
temperature probe must be used instead.
• When temperature measurement ha been completed,
di sconnect the connection between the testing leads and the
circuit under test, ancf remove the testing leads away from the
input terminal s of the Meter. -"'&-
J. DC or AC Current Measurement
(see figure 11)
(fi gure 11)
.&. Warning . L====:._--..J
Never attempt an in-circuit current measurement where the
open-circuit voltage between the circuit and ground is
greater than 600V.
If the fuse burns out during measurement, the Meter may be
damaged or the operator himself may be hurt. Use proper
terminals, function, and range for the measurement. When
the testi ng leads are connected to the current terminal s, do
not parallel them across any circuit.
Measurement Operation (10)
The current mea urement ha 3 measurement po itions on the
rotary witch:   mA:::: and A::::.
The has a and 4000µA range, with auto ranging;
the mA:::: has a 40.00mA and 400.0mA range with auto
ranging; A;:;;: po ition has a 4.000A and I O.OOA range, with
auto ranging.
To measure current, do the following:
I. Tum off power to the circuit. Di charge all hi gh-voltage
capacitors.
2. Model UT60C/UT60E: Insert the red test lead into the
or IOA terminal and the black te t lead into the
COM terminal.
Model UT60B: Insert the red test lead into the µAmA or
tOA tenninal and the black test lead into the COM terminal.
U e the JOA terminal and A:::: range if the current value to
be tested is an unknown.
3. Set the rotary switch to   mA:::: , or A::::.
4. The Meter defaults to D current measurement mode. To
toggle between DC and A current mea urement function,
press BLUE button.
Model UT60B/UT60C: AC current is di spl ayed as effective
value of sine wave (mean value re ponse).
Model UT60E: AC current is displayed as true rms value.
5. Break the current path to be tested. Connect the red test lead
to the more po itj ve side of the break and the bl ack test lead
to the more negative side of the break.
6. Tum on power to the circuit.
The measured value shows on the display.
Note
• True root mean square value stability period: (Model
UT60E)
When the reading obtained is less than I 00 digits, the true
root mean square value converter needs a longer time to
stabi li ze. When there is no input voltage, the maximum reading
displayed is I 0 digits.
• For safety sake, each measurement time for hi gh current
should be le s than I 0 econd and the interval time between
2 measurement s should be greater than 15 minutes.
• When current mea urement has been compl eted, di sconnect
the connection between the testing lead and the circuit under
test, and remove the testing leads away from the input
te1111inal of the Meter.
