Analog input voltage and current mode
In current mode, the analog inputs have a low input resistance while the meter is powered on, and a high input resistance when the meter is powered off. In voltage mode, the analog inputs have a high input resistance regardless of whether the meter is powered or not.
When connected to a current output transducer, this high resistance can create a high voltage. Standard (i.e., 4 to 20 mA) current transducers have open circuit protection and are able to handle a high input resistance; however, if non-standard transducers are used high voltages may be generated. Your meter’s analog input has circuitry to limit this voltage, but it may not be sufficient with a very high-power current source.
Failure to follow these instructions will result in equipment damage.
