True RMS Digital Multimeter Model 22-816

Introduction Congratulations on your purchase of Extech’s 22-816 true rms Digital Multimeter. This autoranging meter measures AC/DC Voltage, AC/DC Current, Resistance, Capacitance, Frequency, Duty Cycle, Temperature, Diode Test and Continuity. Proper use and care of this meter will provide many years of reliable service.

Safety International Safety Symbols This symbol, adjacent to another symbol or terminal, indicates the user must refer to the manual for further information. This symbol, adjacent to a terminal, indicates that, under normal use, hazardous voltages may be present Double insulation

Overvoltage Catagory III This meter meets the IEC 610-1-95 standard for OVERVOLTAGE CATEGORY III. Cat III meters are protected against overvoltage transients in fixed installation at the distribution level. Examples include switches in the fixed installation and some equipment for industrial use with permanent connection to the fixed installation.

Safety Precautions 1. Improper use of this meter can cause damage, shock, injury or death. Read and understand this user manual before operating the meter. 2. Make sure any covers or battery doors are properly closed and secured. 3. Always remove the test leads before replacing the battery or fuses. 4. Inspect the condition of the test leads and the meter itself for any damage before operating the meter. Repair any damage before use. 5. Do not exceed the maximum rated input limits. 6. Use great care when making measurements if the voltages are greater than 25VAC rms or 35VDC. These voltages are considered a shock hazard. 7. Always discharge capacitors and remove power from the device under test before performing Capacitance, Diode, Resistance or Continuity tests. 8. Remove the battery from the meter if the meter is to be stored for long periods. 9. To avoid electric shock, do not measure AC current on any circuit whose voltage exceeds 250V AC. 10. Voltage checks on electrical outlets can be difficult and misleading because of the uncertainty of connection to the electrical contacts. Other means should be used to ensure that the terminals are not "live". Function V DC, VAC Ohms, Capacitance, Diode, Frequency, Continuity mA DC/AC 10A DC/AC

Relative Measurements The relative measurement feature allows you to make measurements relative to a stored reference value. A reference voltage, current, etc. can be stored and measurements made in comparison to that value. The displayed value is the difference between the reference value and the measured value. 1.

Perform any measurement as described in the operating instructions. 2. Press the Relative button to store the reading in the display and the "REL" indicator will appear on the display. 3. The display will now indicate the difference between the stored value and the measured value. 4. Press the Relative button to return to normal operation. Backlight The backlight function illuminates the display and is used when the ambient light to too low to permit viewing of the displayed readings. Press the button for one second to turn the backlight on and press the button a second time to turn the backlight off. Auto Off The auto off feature will turn the meter off after 15 minutes of inactivity (Range switch or a button has not been turned or pressed). A beep will warn the user shortly before the auto off feature activates. Turn the Function switch to the OFF position and then to a function to resume operation. True RMS The term stands for “Root-Mean-Square,” which represents the method of calculation of the voltage or current value. Average responding multimeters are calibrated to read correctly only on sine waves and they will read inaccurately on non-sine wave or distorted signals. True rms meters read accurately on either type of signal.

DO NOT use chemicals, cleaning solvents or detergents. 5. Use only a fresh battery of the recommended size and type. Remove the old or weak battery so it does not leak and damage the unit. 6. If the meter is to be stored for a long period of time, the battery should be removed to prevent damage to the unit. Battery Replacement 1.

Disconnect the test leads from the meter.

2.

Remove the rubber holster/boot (if in place).

3.

Open the battery door by removing the screws using a Phillips head screwdriver.

4.

Insert the new battery into the battery holder, observing the correct polarity.

5.

Replace the battery door and secure with the screws. 13
