•
Type K probes (chromel-alumel) offer the widest range of –250 to 1372 °C
/ -418 to 2502 °F; use in oxidizing environments
•
Type T probes (copper-constantan) of range of –250 to 400 °C / -418 to
752 °F; good for ambient and sub-freezing measurements
The Temp JKT meter features:
•
Large LCD for clear and easy reading
•
Readings in C and F (selectable)
•
Minimum and maximum temperature display
o
o
•

Caution: Power off the meter when changing battery.
2.6 Connecting the Temperature Sensor
Insert the 2-pin mini connector plug of the temperature sensor into the connector
socket on the side of the meter.
NOTE: The negative pin is larger than the positive pin, be sure to properly align the
pins. Unplug the sensor when not in use.
Figure 6: Connecting the temperature sensor
2.7 Switching the Meter On
1. Press ON/OFF key to power up your meter. All
the LCD segments display momentarily as the
meter performs a self-diagnostic test, per shown
in section 2.2. The LCD then switches into
measurement mode.

2. The LCD displays “oPEn” if the temperature sensor is faulty, or there is an
open circuit. Please refer to section on Troubleshooting if in doubt.

3. CALIBRATION
3.1 Temperature Calibration
The temperature sensor included with your meter is factory calibrated. Over time,
the temperature calibration may drift and the probe requires re-calibration. The
Temp JKT meter allows you to have a 1-point calibration as fine adjustment by
changing its offset value. This is useful if you replace the probe. If you replace the
probe, you should recalibrate.
1.
First connect the temperature probe to the meter. Press ON/OFF key to
power up the meter and wait for meter to enter measurement mode.
2.
Dip the probe in a constant temperature bath, or in liquid whose
temperature can be checked with an accurate thermometer. For best
accuracy, place the probe and thermometer in a constant temperature
bath.
3.
Wait for readings to stabilise.
4.
To enter temperature calibration mode, press and hold CAL key for 5
seconds before release. The LCD shows “CA” momentarily and a value
flashes.
5.
Press MAX/▲ or MIN/▼ key to adjust the displayed value until it
matches the correct temperature. The MAX/▲ or MIN/▼ key will scroll to
the maximum allowable value.
NOTE: The maximum adjustments allowed for the following meter series
from factory default are:
•
EcoScan JKT Temperature meters = ±10 °C
•
EcoScan 4/5/6 Temperature meters = ±5 °C

Press ENTER key to confirm calibration.
7.
The LCD displays “CO” momentarily, and the meter then reverts to
measurement mode. See figure below.

4.1 Taking Measurements
1. Power on the meter. The meter automatically
enters Temperature mode. The “J”, “K” or “T”
annunciator will display, depending on what
probe type was selected the last time the meter
o
o
was used. The C or F annunciator display in
your LCD indicate which mode you are taking
measurements in.

2. Press the J-K-T key to toggle between type J, K or T mode, until the mode
matches probe type selected. Note reading.
3. Press the °C/°F key to toggle between each measurement mode.
4.2 Displaying Maximum and Minimum
Readings
The Temp JKT meter can momentarily display the
maximum and minimum temperature measured
since you switched the meter on. Simply press
MAX/
or MIN/
key. The “MAX” or “MIN”
annunciator displays in the LCD and the maximum
or minimum temperature momentarily displays.
Meter then returns to measurement mode.

4.5 Maximum and Minimum Hold Mode
With the Maximum and Minimum Hold mode, the Temp JKT meter can be used as
a maximum registering (or minimum registering) thermometer. The meter displays
the lowest or highest temperature measured since entering the Maximum or
Minimum Hold mode.
1. Power on the meter. The meter automatically enters temperature mode. Use
°C/°F key to switch between Celcius and Fahrenheit reading if desired.
2. Press HOLD key. The reading freezes and the annunciator “HO” displays in
the LCD.
3. Press MAX/ or MIN/ key. Meter enters the Maximum or Minimum Hold
mode. “HO” and “MAX” or “MIN” annunciator displays in the LCD.

Meter will now continuously display the lowest or highest temperature measured
since you entered this mode. It will update the display when new highs or lows are
reached.
Press HOLD key again to leave MIN/MAX Hold mode and meter returns to its
measurement mode.

5. DISABLE AUTO POWER OFF FEATURE
By default this meter will auto power-off 17 minutes after last key operation. This is
to conserve battery power. The auto power-off feature can be disabled in situation
where longer periods of monitoring are desired.
NOTE: The meter switches back to auto power-off mode as soon as it is turned off.
Procedure:
1.
With meter off, press down ON/OFF and MIN/▼ keys together.
2.
Release ON/OFF key first and wait for 2 seconds before releasing
MIN/▼ key.
3.
The meter goes through the power-up sequence before coming to
measurement mode.
4.
The “LO” indicator will blink, indicating that the auto power-off feature is
disabled.
The "LO" indicator will blink, indicating that the auto
power-off feature is disabled
NOTE: When battery is low, the “LO” indicator
will blink faster at every 1 second. Otherwise,
it blinks every 2 seconds.
Once the meter is switched off and
subsequently switched on again, the auto
power-off feature will be enabled.
NOTE: Under default operation (when auto
power-off feature is enabled), the appearance
of “LO” indicator permanently on the display
means the battery power is low. Once a new
battery is installed, the “LO” indicator will
disappear

6. PROBE CARE AND MAINTENANCE
For best results, always clean the temperature probe with clean tissue paper after
measurement to keep the probe in good working condition. Wash the probe
thoroughly with tap water if necessary to wash off any residue. Should there be any
thin oil film sticking on the probe, wash with mild detergent or soap and warm
water. Rinse probe thoroughly under running water. Blot it dry and clean off with
clean tissue.
To remove the probe, simply hold firmly onto the probe’s plastic holder and pull the
connector out of the meter’s socket. Store both the probe and meter into its original
packaging when not in use.
