�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.
• Verify the Tester’s operation by measuring on a
known source. Do not use the Tester if it operates
abnormally.
• Do not operate the Tester around explosive gas,
vapor, or dust.
• The Tester is intended for indoor use only.
• Use the Tester only as specifed in the users manual
or the protection by the Tester might be impaired.
1
�Cautions
The unit should be protected from the following,
• EMF (electro-magnetic fields) from arc welders and
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-450
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, the IR-450 is
a 3-in-1 tool that verifies temperature, is used as a laser
pointer and illuminates dark work spaces with a bright
LED flashlight. 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
• Infrared temperature measurement with laser pointer
• Holds temperature reading for 10 seconds
• Ultra white LED flashlight
• Selectable oF / oC temperature measurements
• Pocket clip

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Power On / Off
Auto Power Off
The IR-450 will power down after not being used for 3
minutes.
Auto Hold
The unit will hold the reading for 10 seconds after the
on button is pressed.
Operating the Unit
To measure temperature, point unit at an object and press
the Test button. Be sure to consider distance-to-spot size
ratio and your distance from the measured object. The IR450 is equipped with a laser. Use the laser only for aiming.
See “Taking Temperature Measurement”.
Taking Temperature Measurement
Target Area
Incorrect
3
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, and the unit will show the
temperature of the target surface. Then release the
key, and the LCD will hold the reading for 10 seconds.
Press the
key for 3 seconds, the unit will turn into
the IR temperature continuous measurement mode.
°F / °C Temperature Selection
Press the Test button and the Flashlight button for
2 seconds at the same time for switching between
Fahrenheit and Celsius.
Distance and Spot Size
As the distance (D) from the object increases, the spot
size (S) of the area measured by the unit becomes larger.
4
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 a long
period of time and cross the “B line” to prevent thermo
effect interference from measuring accuracy.
Reminders
1. Changes of surrounding ambient temperatures can
result in inaccurate readings. Allow time for the
unit to adapt to the change temperatures before
use. Specified accuracy applies after 30 minutes
when the Tester adjusts to different environmental
temperatures..
5
Allow time for the unit to adapt to the change of
ambient temperatures from the user’s pocket to
environmental ambient.
2. The unit cannot take measurements through
transparent surfaces such as glass. Remove the
barrier between the unit and the target surface.
6
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.
