CAUTIONS

Improper use of this meter can cause damage, shock, injury or death. Read and understand
this user manual before operating the meter.

Always remove the test leads before replacing the battery or fuses.

Inspect the condition of the test leads and the meter itself for any damage before operating the
meter.

Use great care when making measurements if the voltages are greater than 25 VAC rms or 35
VDC. These voltages are considered a shock hazard.

Warning! This is a Class A device. This device can cause interference in residential areas.

Always discharge capacitors and remove power from the device under test before performing
Diode, Resistance or Continuity tests.

Voltage checks on electrical outlets can be difficult and misleading because of the uncertainty
of connection to the recessed electrical contacts. Other means should be used to ensure that
the terminals are not "live".

If the equipment is used in a manner not specified by the manufacturer, the protection provided
by the equipment may be impaired.

This device must not be used by children. It contains hazardous objects as well as small parts
that the children could swallow.

Do not leave batteries and packing material lying around unattended; they can be dangerous
to children.

In the event that this device will be stored for an extended period of time, remove the batteries.

Expired or damaged batteries can leak and can be hazardous to skin. Use suitable hand
gloves in such cases.

Do not short-circuit the battery. Do not place the battery near a fire.

Never mix battery types. Always install new batteries of the same type.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
This meter has been designed for safe use, but must be operated with caution. The rules listed below
must be carefully followed for safe operation.
1.
NEVER apply voltage or current to the meter that exceeds the specified maximum:
Input Protection Limits
Function
Maximum Input
V AC/DC, Resistance, Diode Test, Continuity
600 VDC/AC rms
μA or mA AC/DC
200mA fused
A AC/DC
10A fused
2.

Operating Instructions
WARNING: Risk of electrocution. High-voltage circuits, both AC and DC, are extremely dangerous
and should be measured with great care.
1. ALWAYS turn the function switch to the OFF position when the meter is not in use.
2. If “OL” appears in the display during a measurement, the value exceeds the range you have
selected. Change to a higher range.
AC/DC VOLTAGE MEASUREMENTS
CAUTION: Do not measure DC voltages if a motor on the circuit is being switched ON or OFF.
Large voltage surges may occur that can damage the meter.
1. Rotate the function switch to the VAC or VDC position.
2. Insert the black test lead banana plug into the negative COM jack. Insert the red
test lead banana plug into the positive V jack.
3. Touch the black test probe tip to the negative side of the circuit.
Touch the red test probe tip to the positive side of the circuit.
4. Read the voltage in the display.
AC/DC CURRENT MEASUREMENTS
1. Insert the black test lead banana plug into the negative COM jack.
2. Press the MODE button to indicate “DC” or “AC” on the display.
3. For current measurements up to 2000µA, set the function switch to the µA position
and insert the red test lead banana plug into the µA/mA jack.
4. For current measurements up to 200 mA DC, set the function switch to the mA
position and insert the red test lead banana plug into the µA/mA jack.
5. For current measurements up to 10A DC, set the function switch to the 10A position
and insert the red test lead banana plug into the 10A jack.
6. Connect the test leads in series with the circuit under test.
7. Apply power to the circuit.
8. Read the current in the display.

WARNING: To avoid electric shock, never measure continuity on circuits or wires that have a
voltage potential.
1. Rotate the function switch to the
position.
2. Insert the black lead banana plug into the negative COM jack.
Insert the red test lead banana plug into the positive
jack.
3. Press the MODE button to indicate“
" on the display
4. Touch the test probe tips to the circuit or wire you wish to check.

5.
The object under test should be larger than the spot (target) size calculated by the field of view
diagram.
If the surface of the object under test is covered with frost, oil, grime, etc., clean before taking
measurements.
If an object's surface is highly reflective, apply masking tape or flat black paint to the surface
before measuring.
The meter will not make measurements through glass steam, dust, and smoke.
To find a hot spot, aim the meter outside the area of interest then scan across (in an up and
down motion) until the hot spot is located.

EX210_EX210T-en-US_v1.5 9/15
AUTORANGING/MANUAL RANGE SELECTION
When the meter is first switched on, it automatically enters the AutoRanging mode. This
automatically selects the best range for the measurements being made and is generally the best
mode for most measurements. For measurement situations requiring that a range be manually
selected, perform the following:
1. Press the RANGE button. The “AUTO” display indicator will turn off.
2. Press the RANGE key to step through the available ranges until the range desired is selected.
3. Press and hold the RANGE button for 2 seconds to exit manual ranging.
Note: Manual ranging does not apply to the Temperature, Diode and Continuity functions.
MAX (MAXIMUM READING) MODE
1. Press the MAX button to activate the MAX mode. The display icon "MAX" will appear. The meter
will display and hold the maximum reading and will update only when a new maximum value is
detected.
2. Press the MAX button again to exit the mode.
Note: Max does not apply to the Resistance, Diode and Continuity functions.
DISPLAY BACKLIGHT
Press and hold the IRT
button for 2 second to turn the backlight on. The backlight will
automatically turn off after approximately 10 seconds or press and hold the button again for 2
seconds to manually turn it off.
HOLD
The HOLD function freezes the reading in the display. Press the HOLD button momentarily to
activate or to exit the HOLD function.
Note: The HOLD button does not function in the IR measurement mode.
AUTO SLEEP
If no button is pressed the auto sleep feature will place the meter in sleep mode after approximately
15 minutes of operation. If this happens, press any button to wake the meter or switch the meter to
OFF if it no longer in use.

Maintenance
WARNING: To avoid electric shock, disconnect the test leads from any source of voltage before
removing the back cover or the battery or fuse covers.
WARNING: To avoid electric shock, do not operate the meter until the battery and fuse covers are
in place and fastened securely.
This MultiMeter is designed to provide years of dependable service, if the following care instructions
are followed:
1. KEEP THE METER DRY. If it gets wet, wipe it off.
2. USE AND STORE THE METER IN NORMAL TEMPERATURES. Temperature extremes can
shorten the life of the electronic parts and distort or melt plastic parts.
3. HANDLE THE METER GENTLY AND CAREFULLY. Dropping it can damage the electronic parts
or the case.
4. KEEP THE METER CLEAN. Wipe the case occasionally with a damp cloth. DO NOT use
chemicals, cleaning solvents, or detergents.
5. USE ONLY FRESH BATTERIES OF THE RECOMMENDED SIZE AND TYPE. Remove old or
weak batteries so they do not leak and damage the unit.
6. IF THE METER IS TO BE STORED FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME, the batteries should be
removed to prevent damage to the unit.
BATTERY and FUSE Replacement
WARNING: To avoid electric shock, disconnect the test leads from any source of voltage before
removing the battery cover.
1.
Turn power off and disconnect the test leads from the meter.
2.
Lift the meter stand to expose the battery cover.
3.
Open the rear battery/fuse compartment by removing the Phillips head screw on the lower rear of
the meter.
4.
Carefully pull down on the cover just enough to release the latch and then lift it off. The cover will
not pull down all the way.
5.
Remove the old battery or fuse and install a new one of the correct rating.
6. Place the battery/fuse cover back in place. Secure with the screw.
WARNING: To avoid electric shock, do not operate the meter until the battery cover is in place and
fastened securely.
NOTE: If the meter does not work properly, check the fuses and replace the battery to make sure that
they are still good and that they are properly inserted.
