Extech MA140 Inrush Current Mode
In the Inrush mode the meter waits until at least 5A is detected and then starts a 100ms sample window in which to capture an inrush current RMS value.
1. Press and hold the INRUSH button for > 2 seconds to access the Inrush Current mode.
2. The display will show the INRUSH icon.
3. When ready, take a current measurement. The meter will capture the highest reading detected during a 100ms window. Note that the 100ms window does not open until at least 5A is detected.
4. To exit the Inrush Current mode press the INRUSH button again momentarily. The INRUSH icon will switch OFF
Extech MA140 Volt‐Detection Feature
The meter’s audible beeper triggers and the display shows dashes when the meter senses an electrical voltage field. The higher the electrical field strength the greater the number of dashes displayed and the faster the rate of the audible beeps. If the meter does not emit a tone or display dashes in this mode, there is still the possibility that voltage is present. Please use caution.
