I .MEASURING AC/DC VOLTAGE:
MEASURING DC VOLTAGE:

AstroAI Multimeter 2000 Counts Digital Multimeter with DC AC Voltmeter and Ohm Volt Amp Tester User Manual - Measuring AC DC Voltage AstroAI Multimeter 2000 Counts Digital Multimeter with DC AC Voltmeter and Ohm Volt Amp Tester User Manual - Measuring AC DC Voltage

  • Connect the test leads to the circuit under test (connect the leads in parallel to the power supply or circuit under test) to measure.

NOTE:

  1. If the reading is negative when measuring the DC voltage, it means that the positive and negative poles of the test leads are reversed, please change the test leads.
  • After the reading stabilizes, record the reading from the LCD screen.
  • Turn the rotary switch to the OFF position to turn off the Meter.
MEASURING AC VOLTAGE:

AstroAI Multimeter 2000 Counts Digital Multimeter with DC AC Voltmeter and Ohm Volt Amp Tester User Manual - Measuring AC Voltage AstroAI Multimeter 2000 Counts Digital Multimeter with DC AC Voltmeter and Ohm Volt Amp Tester User Manual - Measuring AC Voltage

  • Connect the test leads to the circuit under test (connect the leads in parallel to the power supply or circuit under test) to measure.
  • After the reading stabilizes, record the reading from the LCD screen.
  • Turn the rotary switch to the OFF position to turn off the Meter.
VOLTAGE TIPS:
HOW TO FIND A LIVE WIRE IN A SOCKET:
  • Switch to the voltage test setting.
  • Connect the black test lead to the grounded wire or jack. Connect the red test lead to one of the jacks to be measured.
  •  Check both jacks. One should have a reading and the other should remain at or near zero. The live wire will have the reading.
VOLTAGE NOTES:
  • Choose the 500V setting to measure the unknown voltage first, and then select the appropriate range according to the voltage.
  • To avoid damage to the meter, do not measure voltage exceeding 500V DC or 500V AC CATII.
  • If the AC setting is used to measure DC and vice versa, an overflow symbol will be displayed. Performing this action has the potential to damage the Meter or any components you are attempting to test.
  • When measuring voltage, the result will fluctuate depend ing on the power supply. Generally, the result will fluctuate ±1 0V, which is NOT an inaccurate result.

II.MEASURING DC CURRENT:

Ill. MEASURING DC A CURRENT:

AstroAI Multimeter 2000 Counts Digital Multimeter with DC AC Voltmeter and Ohm Volt Amp Tester User Manual - Measuring DC A Current

Choose a larger setting to measure the unknown current first, and then select the appropriate range according to the current.

  • Connect the Meter to the circuit under test in series, and then turn on the power supply of the circuit.
  • After the reading stabilizes, record the reading from the LCD screen.
  • Turn the rotary switch to the OFF position to turn off the Meter.
AUTOMOTIVE PARASITIC BATTERY DRAIN:
  • Check if the battery voltage and power generation are within normal range. The battery voltage is generally around 12.7V and the power generation is around 14V.
  • Turn off all electrical accessories inside and outside the car and close the doors.
  • Remove the negative electrode of the battery. Set the Multimeter to the maximum current level and connect the Meter in series to the battery. Connect the red test lead to the negative line and the black test lead to the battery terminal.
  • Adjust the Meter, if necessary, to a lower range.
  • Wait for about 30 minutes; after all the modules of the vehicle have entered the sleep state, read the accurate static discharge current. The discharge current is generally 0.02A (20mA), however, this can vary depending on the vehicle. Normally ii will not exceed 50mA.
  • If the drain is larger than 50mA, begin checking fuses individually for which circuit is carrying the excess load. If a removed fuse reduces the battery draw to below 50mA, ii can be determined that the corresponding circuit is drawing the excess discharge.
CURRENT NOTES:
  • Choose the maximum setting to measure the unknown current first, and then select the appropriate range according to the current.
  • If you insert the red test lead into the 1 OA jack, be sure to insert the test lead back into the ” VΩmA” jack after the test to avoid forgetting to switch the jack for the next operation and thus burning the Multimeter.
  • When testing a high current, for safety reasons, each measurement time should be less than 10 seconds, and the interval time between tests should be greater than 15 minutes.
  • When testing the current, there must be a load in the circuit. Do not connect the multimeter in series with the circuit without a load to measure; doing so can potentially damage the Meter.
  • Do not apply a current exceeding the Meter’s range to avoid damaging the Meter.

IV. MEASURING RESISTANCE:

AstroAI Multimeter 2000 Counts Digital Multimeter with DC AC Voltmeter and Ohm Volt Amp Tester User Manual - Measuring Resistance

NOTE:

  1. The test unit of “Ω” area is “Ω”; If the number on the yellow area is followed by a “M”, then the test unit is “MO”; If the number on the yellow area is followed by a “K”, then the test unit is “KO”.
  2. Choose a larger measurement range to measure the unknown resistance first, then select the appropriate range according to the resistance.
  • Connect the test leads to both ends of the circuit or resistor under test (connect the leads to the resistance under test in parallel).
  • After the reading stabilizes, record it from the LCD screen.
  • Turn the rotary switch to the OFF position to turn off the Meter.
RESISTANCE NOTES:
  • Do not change the resistance while taking a measurement. Doing so may damage the Meter and affect the test results.
  • Do not test parallel circuits. The accuracy of the measurement will be affected, and the results may not be accurate.
  • Do not directly measure the internal resistance of micrometers, galvanometers, batteries, and other instruments.

VI.DIODE TEST:

AstroAI Multimeter 2000 Counts Digital Multimeter with DC AC Voltmeter and Ohm Volt Amp Tester User Manual - Diode Test

DIODE TEST TIPS:
  • Is the diode functioning correctly: If the red test lead is connected to the positive pole of the diode and the black lead is connected to negative, then the diode should be in a forward conduction state, and the displayed value is the forward voltage drop.
  • Normal diode forward pressure drop: the general silicon tube is 0.5- 0.7 V, germanium tube is 0.15-0.3V.
  • You can also verify that the red test lead is connected to the negative pole of the tested diode and the black test rod is connected to the positive pole. The diode should display”1″.
POLARITY JUDGMENT METHOD:
  • Switch the Multimeter to the Resistance setting.
  • Connect the two test leads to the two electrodes of the diode.
  • Measure one result, then swap the positions of the test leads and measure the second result.
  • The larger result is the reverse resistance and the smaller result is the forward resistance. The smaller resistance is when the black test lead is connected to the positive end of the diode and the red lead is connected to the negative end.
