How is the 6200 affected if operated below it's minimum temperature specification (-4ºF / -20ºC)?

Below the rated OPERATING temperature (-20ºC = -4º Fahrenheit), the correct operation of the meter cannot be guaranteed. Accuracy will suffer and depending on how low the temperature gets, different components may not function correctly. There aren’t specific temperature values for anything other than the LCDs, which operate to -25ºC.
Below the rated STORAGE temperature (-40ºC = -40º Fahrenheit), all components will be suspect and the meter may not work at all. Damage is possible to the display and other components.

If the temperature only dips below operating temperature occasionally, and for short periods, it should be fine. Continued operation at cold temperatures or cold startups may cause problems for the meter.
