Introduction
This publication provides the necessary information required to safely operate the EASIRTM-4 Thermal Camera.
It is important to fully check all equipment with which you have been supplied.
The equipment should be used, maintained and serviced by suitably trained personnel, capable of carefully following
the procedures and guidelines given in this User Manual.
All User Manuals and leaflets should be read thoroughly before proceeding with operation of the equipment.
It is also advisable that all User Manuals and Instruction Leaflets supplied are kept readily available, for reference when
the equipment is in general use.
Precautions
The following precautions must be adhered to at all times and must be considered in addition to any advised
precautions issued at the relevant worksite or work area.
•
Keep the EASIRTM-4 Thermal Camera steady during operation.
•
Do not use the EASIRTM-4 Thermal Camera in temperature exceeding its working and storage temperature
ranges.
•
Do not direct the EASIRTM-4 Thermal Camera at very high intensity radiation sources such as the sun,
carbon dioxide lasers or arc welders etc.
•
Do not expose the EASIRTM-4 Thermal Camera to dust and moisture. When operating the unit near water,
ensure that the unit is adequately guarded against splashes.
•
When the EASIRTM-4 Thermal Camera is not in use or is to be transported, ensure that the unit and its
accessories are stored in the protective carry case.
•
Do not jam the holes or loudspeaker on the camera body.
•
Do not re-switch on the camera until 15 seconds later after switching it off.
•
Do not throw, knock or vibrate intensely the camera and its components in order to keep them from damage.
•
Do not attempt to open the camera body, as this action will void the warranty.
•
Keep the SD memory card for the exclusive use of the camera.
•
During using, if move the IR camera from hot/cold place to cold/hot place, e.g. from inside/outside to
outside/inside of a air-conditioned car in winter, should power off the camera firstly and leave it in the
operation site for 20 minutes, then power on the camera for normal operation and accurate temperature
measurement. Sharp and instant ambient temperature change may cause fault temperature measurement
and even damage camera’s IR detector.
•
FPA setting: to ensure accurate temperature measurement, the FPA detector was calibrated in different
temperature points--7degree, 17degree, 27degree, 37degree. When power on the camera in 0 degree for
example, after period of working the temperature of the camera (the detector) will increase gradually. And
when the internal temperature of the camera beyond 7 degree, FPA setting will take place and will last for
about 30sec, and during the FPA setting the camera will not response for any operations. If power on the
camera in a temperature about 8 degree, only when the temperature of the camera beyond 17degree, this
phenomenon will happen again. Camera will adjust FPA setting itself automatically to ensure its stable
performance.

User Manual
Maintenance
To ensure that the EASIRTM-4 Thermal Camera is kept in good working condition and remains fully operational, the
following guidelines should be adhered to at all times.
Non-optical surfaces
The non-optical surfaces of the camera can be cleaned when required, with a soft cloth dampened with water and a
mild detergent.
Optical surfaces
The lens of an IR camera is very expensive. Replacement or repair may be thousands of dollars. The anti-reflective
coating on the surface of the lens is the most expensive part of the lens assembly (and is also critical to the radiometric
capabilities of the system).
The optical surface should only be cleaned when visibly dirty. Care should be taken to avoid oil, chemical dirt and
touching the exposed lens surface, as skin acid left behind from fingerprints can be damaging to coatings and lens
substrates. After using the imager, please close the lens cover.
Do not use dilution to clean the imager and its accessories, especially the optics. Use clean soft dry tissue to clean the
imager body, and the supplied lens cleaning tissue for lens.
Calibration and Repair Philosophy
To ensure the accuracy and reliability of the EASIRTM-4 Thermal Camera, it is highly recommended that the instrument
be calibrated at 12 monthly intervals.
Calibration or repair for the instrument can be obtained by either contacting the address/ telephone number on the
cover of this User Manual, or by email to the following address: [email protected]
Caution
The EASIRTM-4 Thermal Camera does not incorporate any user serviceable parts. Never attempt to disassemble or
modify the camera. Opening the unit invalidates the warranty.

How to get accurate temperature?
There are a lot of factors affecting temperature accuracy.
Here is a brief introduction to some typical parameters: emissivity, background temperature, distance, humidity and etc.
Note:
To get accurate temperature, you shall hold the camera stably and focus the camera well.

Emissivity: All objects radiate infrared energy. The amount of energy radiated is based on two primary factors: the
surface temperature of the object and the emissivity of object’s surface.
The default emissivity is 0.98, which is applicable to most surfaces.
For some special materials or surfaces, please refer to the emissivity table to find a right emissivity value.
You can change emissivity between 0.01 and 1.00 in menu Parameter and Emiss.

Tamb: To display and adjust the real-time comparative scene temperature of target. The default setting of this
parameter is automatic adjusted by the internal temperature sensor. If needed, this setting can be adjusted
manually according to real temperature of some special scenes (like sky or snow) of measured target.
Press
button and
button to bring the submenu of parameter setting, then choose “Tamb” and select
Set option to set the value manually by pressing button
and button
. The new measurement will be
based on the saved tamb value until re-enter Tamb option and exit, which will activate the default automatic mode.

Distance: To set the proper distance from target, the distance range is from 0.1 meter to 30 meters.
