M4235/0306 OS562 Infrared Thermometer OS562 Thermometer Operating Instructions STORAGE & CLEANING This thermometer is a non-contact infrared thermometer. There are many mathematical modes for the infrared function. Please remember to keep away from children and don’t use it for safety-related applications. The thermometer should be stored at room temperature between -20 and 65°C (-4 and 149°F). The sensor lens is the most delicate part of the thermometer. The lens should be kept clean at all times. Care should be taken when cleaning the lens; use only a soft cloth or cotton swab moistened with water or medical alcohol. Allow the lens to fully dry before using the thermometer. Do not submerge any part of the thermometer. Laser Warning and Certification Label Laser Aperture Default Screen LCD ERROR MESSAGES The thermometer incorporates visual diagnostic messages as follows: Simply aim the thermometer at the measure target with Lens 7 and press Meas. key 9 to display the surface temperature. The Distance:Spot is 11:1. Please make sure the target area is within the field of view. FUNCTION Press Emissivity key 1 _ BATTERIES The thermometer incorporates visual low battery indication as follows: Emissivity key is inset. Need blunt pointed object to use. for setting the emissivity. Press Emissivity key 1 , then press Up key 4 or Down key 2 to set the emissivity, then press Mode key 5 to confirm it. The emissivity can be changed from 0.10 (10E) to 1 (100E). Press Mode key 5 for scrolling more display functions as follows. The emissivity data will show here. (The default emissivity is 0.95.) Press Mode key 5 for the Maximum (MAX), Minimum (MIN), Difference between MAX and MIN (DIF) and Average (AVG) modes. During the measurement, the special modes reading will be displayed beside the mode icon. Press Up key 4 or Down key 2 to change the High Alarm (HAL) o r Lo Ala r m ( LAL) , then press Meas. key 9 to confirm it. For example: When the reading is 27°C with an LAL of 27.1°C, the Low icon will flash and you will hear a beep. Connect the thermocouple with Thermocouple socket 10 and put the probe in/on the target. The thermometer will display the temperature automatically, without your needing to press any button. To see the minimum or maximum data during the probe measurement, hold down the Up key 4 or Down key 2 . After measuring high temps, the probe may remain HOT for while. The thermomet er will automatically shut off if left idle for more than 60 sec, unless in PRB mode. (In PRB mode, it will shut off if left idle for more than 12 minutes.) ADD VALUE In MAX, MIN, DIF, Press Up key 4 for L O C K m o d e ON/OFF. The lock mode is particularly useful for AVG mode: continuous monitoring of temperatures for up to 60 minutes. Press Down key 2 o ‘Hi’ or ‘Lo’ is displayed when the temperature being measured is outside of the settings of HAL and LAL. ‘Er2’ is displayed when the thermometer is exposed to rapid changes in the ambient temperature. ‘Er3’ is displayed when the ambient temperature exceeds 0°C (32°F) or 50°C (122°F). The thermometer should be allowed plenty of time (minimum 30 minutes) __ _ to stablize to the working/room temperature. For all other error messages, it is necessary to reset the thermometer. To reset it, turn the instrument off, remove the batteries and wait for a minimum of one minute, reinsert the batteries and turn the instrument on. If the error message remains, please contact the Customer Service department for further assistance: 1-800-622-2378 or 203-359-1660.

C A UTION You may receve harmful laser radiation exposure if you do not adhere to the warnings listed below: 1. Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than those specified here may result in hazardous radiation exposure. 2. Do not look at the laser beam coming out of the lens or view directly with optical instruments - eye damage can result. 3. Use extreme caution when operating the laser sighting. 4. Never point the laser beam at a person. 5. Do not attempt to open the thermometer. There are no user serviceable parts inside. 6. Keep out of reach of all children. ‘Battery OK’: measurements ‘Battery Low’: batteries need to be ‘Battery Exhausted’: measurements are possible replaced; measurements are still possible are not possible When the ‘Low Battery’ icon indicates the batteries are low, the batteries should be replaced immediately with AAA, 1.5 V batteries. Please note: It is imp ortant to turn the instrument off before replacing the batteries; otherwise the thermometer may malfunction. Dispose of used batteries promptly and keep away from children. AVOID EXPOSURE. LASER RADIATION IS EMITTED FROM THIS APERTURE CAUTION LASER RADIATION DO NOT STARE INTO BEAM OUTPUT<1mW, WAVELENGTH 630-670nm CLASS II (2) LASER PRODUCT. COMPLIES WITH FDA 21CFR 1040.10 & EN 60825-1/11.2001 Caution: The measure range is for thermometer only. User should choose proper probre types for different kinds of applications. Please make sure the target to be measured will not exceed the temperature range of the probe to avoid permanent damage of the thermocouple probe. EMC/RFI Read ings may be affected if the unit is operated within radio frequency electromagnetic field strength of approximately 3 volts per meter, but the performance of the instrument will not be permanently affected.
