�Safety Information
�Warning
• Do not stare into laser beam.
• Do not point laser directly at eye or indirectly off
reflective surfaces.
• For use by competent persons only.
• Do not leave the unit on or near objects of high
temperature.
• Non-Contact Voltage function can only test on
insulated wires. Testing on high voltage wires
should keep a distance of 20mm minimum.
• Do not use the unit to sense wire voltage higher
than 600V.

�Cautions
Use this unit only as specified in this manual or the
protection provided by the unit may be impaired.
The unit should be protected from the following,
• EMF (electro-magnetic fields) from arc welders,
induction heaters
• Static electricity
• Thermal shock (caused by large or abrupt ambient
temperature changes - allow 30 minutes for unit to
stabilize before use)
Unpacking and Inspection
Your shipping carton should include:
1 IR-500
1 1.5V AAA alkaline battery (installed)
1 Manual
If any of the items are damaged or missing, return
the complete package to the place of purchase for an
exchange.
INTRODUCTION
A must-have tool for everyday applications, verify
temperature, voltage presence and use it as flash light
in dark places. Compact and easy to use - just aim, press
the button, and read surface temperatures in less than a
second. You can safely measure surface temperatures of
hot, hazardous, or hard-to-reach objects without contact.
Features
• IR temperature measurement with laser pointer
• Integrated non-contact AC voltage warning
2
• Holds temperature reading for 10 seconds
• Ultra white LED flashlight
• Selectable oF / oC
• Pocket clip
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Power On / Off
press
Auto Power Off
3 minutes.
Auto Hold
The unit will hold the reading for 10 sec after On button
is released.
Operating the Unit
To measure a temperature, point unit at object and press
the Test Button. Be sure to consider distance-to-spot size
ratio and field of view. The unit is equipped with a laser,
use the laser only for aiming. See “Making Temperature
Measurement”.

Making Temperature Measurement
Target Area
Incorrect
Make sure that the target is larger than the unit‘s spot
size. The smaller the target, the closer you should be
to it. The minimum measurement area is 3.75cm (1.5in)
diameter.
Press the
key, the unit will show the temperature
key, the LCD will
of target surface. Then release the
hold the reading for 10 seconds.
Press the
key for 3 seconds, the unit will turn into
the IR temperature continuous measurement mode.
4
°C / °F Selection
Press Test button and Flash light button for 2 sec at the
same time for switching temperature unit °C/°F .
Distance & Spot Size
As the distance (D) from the object increases, the spot
size (S) of the area measured by the unit becomes larger.
Use the unit at around 30cm to get the best measurement
accuracy.
At longer distances, the target area shall be larger than
the distance divided by 8.
Please do not put the fingers on the housing for long
period of time and cross the “B line” to prevent from
thermo effect interference of measuring accuracy.

Reminders
1. Changes of surrounding ambient temperature
can result in inaccurate reading, allow time for
the unit to adopt the change of ambient before
use. Specified accuracy applies after 30 minutes
when the unit changes to a different environment
ambient.
Allow time for the unit to adopt the change of
ambient from the user’s pocket to enviroment
ambient.
6
2. The unit cannot measure through transparent
surfaces such as glass. Remove the barrier between
the unit and the target surface.
3. Not recommended for use in measuring shiny or
polished metal surfaces (stainless steel, aluminum,
etc.). See Emissivity.
4. Steam, dust, smoke, etc., can prevent accurate
measurement by obstructing the unit‘s optics
Emissivity
Most organic materials and painted or oxidized surfaces
have an emissivity of 0.95 (pre-set in the unit). Inaccurate
readings will result from measuring shiny or polished
metal surfaces. To compensate, cover the surface to be
measured with masking tape or flat black paint. Allow
time for the tape to reach the same temperature as the
material underneath it. Measure the temperature of the
tape or painted surface.
7
Non-Contact Voltage
The Non-Contact Voltage function is ON automatically
when the unit in standby mode.
When Non-Contact Voltage is sensed, the LCD flashes
three dashes and flash light flashes.
The number of dashes displaying on LCD indicates the
electric field intensity. The higher electric field is sensed,
the more “-” symbols display on LCD.
Non-Contact Voltage function can only test on insulated
wires. Testing on high voltage wires should keep a
distance of 20mm minimum.

MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR
Lens Cleaning: Blow off loose particles using clean
compressed air. Gently brush remaining debris away with
a camel’s hair brush. Carefully wipe the surface with a
moist cotton swab. The swab may be moistened with
water or rubbing alcohol.
NOTE: DO NOT use solvents to clean the plastic lens.
Case Cleaning: Use soap and water on a damp sponge or
soft cloth.
NOTE: DO NOT submerge the unit in water.
