Making electrical measurements with the T5

Voltage measurements

1. Turn the selector to the V. The meter automatically selects the correct internal circuitry depending on the type of voltage being measured. For volts dc and ac, the T5-600 is rated for 600 V CAT III and the T5-1000 is rated for 1,000 V CAT III or 600 V CAT IV.

2. Touch the probe tips to the circuit across the load or power source in parallel to the circuit. Either probe can be fitted into the back of the meter for easy two-handed operation.

3. Record the reading, making note of the units of measurement.

4. If you can’t read the display, press the HOLD button to freeze it, remove the meter from the live circuit, and then check the value.

Resistance measurements

1. Turn off power in the circuit to be tested.

2. Turn the selector to Ω.

3. Touch the probe tips across the designated component or portion of the circuit.

4. Record the reading.


Continuity is a quick go/no-go resistance test that distinguishes between an open and closed circuit. The T5 continuity tester beeps when it detects a closed circuit (resistance less than 25 Ω) — no reading is required — and when it encounters an open circuit (resistance greater than 1000 Ω), “OL” appears in the display.

Current measurements

1. Turn the selector to A.

2. Place the jaws of the meter around the conductor. The conductor should be no larger than 0.5 in. diameter.

3. The conductor should pass through the sensor zone (noted by the circle at the base of the jaw opening) and parallel to the axis of the slotted opening. In a situation where checking for a “Live” conductor is more important than the absolute ampere reading, exact placement of the jaws around the conductor is less important.

4. View the reading. Note that the HOLD function can be used on all measurements as necessary.
