Measurement functions

A. Measurement functions in the upper part of screen.

1) To measure the voltage of transmitter, please operate as following steps.

① Press V (1), select voltage measurement. The red and black probe connects to V/LOOP and COM port separately.

②Observe the reading in the upper part of screen, like over range “-OL–”.

The maximum measurement value is 30 V. Attention: Do not connect the high voltage over the range to any end of the ports. It may damage the instrument.

2) To measure the current of transmitter, please operate as following steps.

① Press mA (2), select current measurement. The red and black probe connects to mA and COM port separately.

② Observe the reading in the upper part of screen, like over range “-OL–”. The maximum measurement value is 24 mA. Attention: Do not connect the current over the range to any end of the ports. It may damage the instrument.

3) To measure the current with loop power supply LOOP

The LOOP function start a 24 V power supply connects in series with current measurement circuit. It can achieve the function to power up the transmitter and measure the current output of transmitter after the wiring is removed in site. If to use LOOP to measure current, please operate as following steps.

① Press LOOP (3) when the calibrator is in other measurement mode, it shows “LOOP” in the upper part of screen. Then the calibrator provides 24 V loop power supply internally.

② The red and black probe connects to V/LOOP and COM port separately.

Observe the reading in the upper part of screen, like over range “-OL–”.
