    -40 to +40 VDC max, Measurement Category I

    Measurement Category I is for measurement performed on circuits not directly connected to the electrical distribution system referred to as MAINS voltage. MAINS is a hazardous live electrical supply system that powers equipment. This category is for measurements of voltages from specially protected secondary circuits. Such voltage measurements included signal levels, special equipment, limited-energy parts of equipment, circuits powered by regulated low-voltage sources, and electronics.


    Do not connect to signals or use for measurements within Measurement Categories II, III, or IV.

    Isolation Voltages

    Port-to-earth ground


    500 Vrms verified by a 5s dielectric withstand test


    60 VDC, Measurement Category I
