Congratulations on your purchase of the Extech High Voltage Insulation Tester. This
device has four pre-set voltage test ranges (up to 10kV) and measures insulation
resistance to 500GΩ. Other voltage test values can be selected using the ±500V step
buttons. This professional meter, with proper care, will provide years of safe reliable
Circuits under test must be de-energized and isolated before connections are made.
Circuit connections must not be touched during a test.
After insulation tests, capacitors must be discharged.
Test leads (including alligator clips) must be in good working order, clean and without
broken or cracked insulation.
When servicing, use only specified replacement parts.

Ensure that the circuit under test does not include devices or components that
can be damaged by 10KVDC; such devices include power factor correction capacitors, low
voltage mineral insulated cables, electronic light dimmers, ballasts and starters for
Connecting the Test Leads to the meter
Black (Earth), Red (Line),
test leads connect to the meter
directly above the dot matrix display (the meter jacks are color coded). NOTE: The
lead is attached to the Red lead and should be used (refer to applications section
Connecting the Test Leads to the device under test
lead is connected to the conductive material. The
leads are connected to insulating, sheathing, and covering material as
shown in the following applications section.

Insulation Resistance Measurements
The circuit under test must be completely de-energized and isolated before
making test connections.
1. After turning the unit on, the display will prompt the user
to select a test voltage (diagram at right).
250000MΩ V = 5000V
2. Select the test voltage by pressing one of the preset
voltage buttons (1KV,
2.5KV, 5KV, 10KV)
or by pressing the Voltage Adjust buttons
to step through the available test voltages in 500V steps.
3. The resistance range for the selected voltage is indicated on the dot matrix display as

8. The meter automatically discharges the system at the end of the test.
9. The meter automatically powers down after 5 minutes.
Enersave mode conserves battery life by performing a relatively short test (10 seconds).
The Enersave mode is the default test mode. To bypass this mode and run a longer test
(100 seconds max), press and hold the
button for 3 seconds when starting a test.
Bargraph Voltage Display
The bargraph represents the voltage present on the test leads as it rises, soaks, and
decays. The bargraph appears on the lower left of the dot matrix display during a test.
Automatic Under/Over Range Resistance Detect
If the display shows the message “LOW MΩ”, the test should be interrupted immediately
by pressing the
button. This message indicates that the insulation under test has
broken down and the meter is trying to inject a high potential onto a short circuit. If ‘HIGH’
appears, it is likely that the test configuration is open. Check the test set-up then test
The test duration is indicated on the display. This is particularly useful in determining
whether an insulating material under test will break down in a given amount of time.
