INTRODUCTION
This instrument is a portable 3½ digit, compact-sized digital Thermo-Hygrometer designed for simple one hand operation. Uses Platinum Resistance Temperature Detector Pt385/1000W (Alpha=0.00385) as temperature sensor, and
uses thin film polymer capacitive type relative humidity sensor as hygrometer
sensor.
SAFETY INFORMATION
It is recommended that you read the safety and operation instructions before
using the hygrometer.
CAUTION
• Do not immerse the hygrometer sensor head into liquids since this
causes permanent damage to the sensor.
• The meter when not in use, please use protective metal cap cover the
sensor head and rotate clockwise it to extend sensors life.
The
symbol on the instrument indicates that the operator must refer to an
explanation in this manual.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Push Button
Display Back-Light Button
Press "
" button to toggle between turn on and turn off the Back-Light.
DATA HOLD Button
Press the DATA HOLD key to enter the DADA HOLD mode, the" H " annunciator
is displayed. When DATA HOLD mode is selected, the hygrometer holds the
present readings and stops all further measurements.
Press the DATA HOLD key again cancels DATA HOLD mode, causing hygrometer to resume taking measurements.
4
MAX HOLD Button
Press the MAX HOLD key to enter the MAX HOLD mode. The hygrometer then
records and updates the maximum absolute values and the MAX annunciator
appears on the display. Press the MAX HOLD key again to exit the MAX HOLD
recording mode.
In the MAX HOLD mode, press DATA HOLD key to stop the recording, press
DATA HOLD key again to resume recording.

Read the display.
Cover sensor head to extend sensor life when not in use.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS
• Before a reliable measurement can be made, the measuring hygrometer and
medium to be measured must be in temperature and humidity eguilibrium.
• Temperature measurement errors
Due to too short measurement time, sunshine during the measurement,
heating, cold outer walls, air draft (e.g. fans), radiating hand and / or body heat
etc.
• Humidity measurement errors
Due to steam, water splashes, dripping water or condensation (not water
condensate) on the sensor etc. However, repeatability and long-term stability
are not impaired by this.
• Contamination
By dust in the air or measurements in powdery substances. This can be largely
avoided by using a corresponding filter. The filter must be cleaned or replaced
periodically depending upon the degree of contamination of the measuring
site.

OPERATOR MAINTENANCE
Battery Replacement
Power is supplied by four 1.5V (AAA size) batteries. The " " appears on the LCD
display when replacement is needed. To replace the batteries, remove the screw
from the back of the meter and lift off the battery cover. Remove the batteries from
battery contacts.
Cleaning
Periodically wipe the case with a damp cloth and detergent, do not use abrasives
or solvents.
