INSTRUCTION
¾
The digital illuminance meter is a precision instrument
used to measure illuminance (Lux, footcandle) in the
field.
¾
It is meet CIE photopic spectral response.
¾
It is fully cosine corrected for the angular incidence of
light.
¾
The illuminance meter is compact, tough and easy to
handle owing to its construction.
¾
The light sensitive component used in the meter is a
very stable, long-life silicon photo diode and spectral
response filter.

HOLD key of LOAD 5s start to load the records
Press key of MAX/MIN to add the number of records.
Press key of HOLD to reduce the number of records.
After you do that you must hold the key of LOAD 5s to
resume normal operation .
16. DATALOGGER function:
SETUP the time and sampling rate first, the default
sampling rate is 1s.
Hold the key of MEM/SETUP 5s, start the datalogger
function, the MEM on the screen will be bicker. If the
memory IC is full ,the memory number will show ‘OL’.
Press the key of MEM/SETUP 5s , stop the datalogger
function , then the meter will resume normal operation.
Then the datalogger number will return to 1, you could
start your records again.

17. HOLD the key of MEM/SETUP and LOAD 5s to clear
the 99 memory .
BATTERY CHECK-UP & REPLACEMENT
1.
As the battery power is not sufficient, LCD will display
low battery, and replacement of one new battery is
required.
2.
After turning off the meter, disconnect the battery cover
3.
Disconnect the battery from the instrument and replace
with a screwier.
it with a standard 9V battery and go for the cover.

4.
The calibration interval for the photo detector will vary
according to operational conditions, but generally the
sensitivity decreases in direct proportion to the product
of luminous intensity by the operational time. In order to
maintain the basic accuracy of the instrument, periodic
calibration is recommended.

Installing the software
z Stare windows
z Close any applications possibly open before
installing the “CEM.LINK” software.
z Insert the CD into the CD-drive.
z Enter x:\setup in the command line and press
OK.
The files setup.exe and the help file will be
copied onto the hard disk (selected path:
c:\program files\ Lightmeter). x is the
drive-letter of your CD-drive ,e.g. ”g”.
z Now follow the installation program
instructions.
z Once the software is installed, switch on
14
z
the meter.
z Start the software.
z Selected the COM port 3. note is 4.
z If the connection is in order, the following
display will be seen on the screen.
If the connection is not in order, the message
“NO CONNECTION” appears on the screen.
