Measurement considerations:
•
The thermometer must be acclimated to ambient temperature for
accurate measurements. Allow approximately 30 minutes
acclimation time when the storage area and use area have a large
temperature differential.
•
If known, adjust the emissivity value to match the emissivity of the
surface being measured. If unknown, use 0.95.
•
The surface measured should be cleaned of frost, dust or other
materials before accurate measurements can be made.
•
Recommended measuring distance is 2” to 36” (5cm to 91cm)
•
Apply black tape or paint to highly reflective surfaces to increase the
emissivity and improve the accuracy of the measurement.
•
The object being measured should be larger than the spot size as
illustrated in the distance to spot diagram.
