INSULATION RESISTANCE WITH TEST VOLTAGE OF 50V, 100V,
250V, 500V OR 1000V
The measurement is effected according to EN 61557-2 and VDE 0413 part 1.
Before effecting the insulation test make sure that the circuit under test is not
energized and all the relative loads are disconnected.

FUNC permits to select one of the following measuring modes
(which can be shown cyclically when pressing the key):
MAN (minimum test time of 10 seconds or set by the pressing
duration on the
START/STOP key). Recommended test.
TIMER (test duration depending on the selected interval (from 10
to 999 seconds). This test can be effected in case a minimum measuring
time is required.
