PLEASE DISPOSE OF OLD OR DEFECTIVE BATTERIES IN AN ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE WAY AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH YOUR LOCAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS. BATTERY SAFETY: Clean the battery contacts and also those of the device prior to battery installation. Remove batteries from equipment which is not to be used for an extended period of time. Follow the polarity (+/-) diagram in the battery compartment. Promptly remove dead batteries from the device. Dispose of used batteries properly. Only batteries of the same or equivalent type as recommended are to be used. DO NOT incinerate used batteries. DO NOT dispose of batteries in fire, as batteries may explode or leak. DO NOT mix old and new batteries or types of batteries (alkaline/standard). DO NOT use rechargeable batteries. DO NOT recharge non-rechargeable batteries. DO NOT short-circuit the supply terminals. 2 OPERATION Using the Thermometer Pull the trigger of the Infrared Thermometer to measure the surface temperature of an area. Field of Measurement The Infrared Thermometer measures average surface temperature on the basis of distance to spot diameter (D:S) ratio. This ratio is the size of the area being measured by the thermometer as it relates to distance. The targeted area being measured becomes larger as the distance from the thermometer increases. The smaller the target, the closer the thermometer should be to it. The D:S ratio for the Infrared Thermometer is 12:1, illustrated below. Examples: If you're standing 12-feet (3.6 m) away from the target surface, the area being measured will be 1-foot (0.3 m) in diameter. If your target surface is 1-inch (25 mm) in diameter, the thermometer must be within 12-inches (300 mm) of the target. 1-In (25mm) 2-In (50mm) 3-In (75mm) 1-Ft (300mm) 12-Inch (300mm) 24-Inch (600mm) 36-Inch (900mm) 12-Feet (3.6m) Spot Size Distance Emissivity Emissivity is the measurement of an object's ability to radiate heat. Emissivity values range from 0 (shiny mirror) to 1.0 (blackbody). Most organic materials and painted or oxidized surfaces have an emissivity close to 0.95. This thermometer is preset (non-adjustable) to an emissivity value of 0.95. Refer to the chart for a list of emissivity values for common surfaces. 3 Substance Thermal emissivity Substance Thermal emissivity Asphalt 0.90 to 0.98 Cloth (black) 0.98 Concrete 0.94 Human skin 0.98 Cement 0.96 Lather 0.75 to 0.80 Sand 0.90 Charcoal (powder) 0.96 Earth 0.92 to 0.96 Lacquer 0.80 to .095 Water 0.92 to 0.96 Lacquer (matt) 0.97 Ice 0.96 to 0.98 Rubber (black) 0.94 Snow 0.83 Plastic 0.85 to 0.95 Glass 0.90 to 0.95 Timber 0.90 Ceramic 0.90 to 0.94 Paper 0.70 to 0.94 Marble 0.94 Chromium oxides 0.81 Plaster 0.80 to 0.90 Copper oxides 0.78 Mortar 0.89 to 0.91 Iron oxides 0.78 to 0.82 Brick 0.93 to 0.96 Textiles 0.90 High & Low Records While measuring the temperature of a surface, minimum and maximum values are recorded. Press and release the "MODE" button after releasing the trigger to cycle through the high and low records. Records are reset each time the thermometer powers off, 5 seconds after no buttons are pressed. Troubleshooting Problem Display screen not working Inaccurate temperature Possible Solution • Check that the battery is installed correctly. Battery may need to be replaced. • Verify size of target is within the field of measurement according to the D:S ratio (see page 3). • Estimate emissivity value of target surface (see chart above). If you need to measure the temperature of a shiny surface, cover the area with a piece of masking tape. Then, measure the temperature of the taped surface.
