High current measurement :
In common with simple analogue multimeters, the meter used a shunt which is directly connected to a separate 10A terminal. The diagram shows the connections, mode switch and range selector settings to permit high-current DC measurements. The mode switch and range selectors are set to DC, 2000mA (2A), and the red and black test leads are connected to '10A' and 'COM' respectively. The display indicates a reading of 2.99A.
