Description
Operation
Field Calibration
The ST4 is a portable standalone dual temperature thermometer. Plug in one or two of the supplied
k-type thermocouples and find T1, T2, or T1-T2.
The supplied rubber boot and case give the ST4
Dual Temperature Digital Thermometer plenty of
protection and durability to last in the field.
The ST4 has been designed to be used while
inside the carrying case. Use the magnet to hang it.
The front is clear so you can press the buttons and
read the display. The zippers allow the thermocouples to exit from the top of the case.
1. Turn on the ST4.
2. Select ºC or ºF.
3. Plug in one or both of the k-type thermocouples to the top of the ST4. The
red LED will light up when a necessary
thermocouple isn’t engaged.
4. Press “T1” for the left thermocouple.
Press “T2” for the right thermocouple.
Press “T1-T2” to get the real-time
difference between the two thermocouple readings.
5. Select temperature resolution by
pressing the “1º/0.1º” button.
6. “HOLD” keeps current reading on
screen until “HOLD” is pressed
again.
7. Press once to record MIN and MAX.
Press once to toggle between MIN
and MAX. Hold down for 1 second to
exit the MIN/MAX function.
8. Operate the ST4 in it’s case to take advantage
of the hanger. You can operate the ST4 while
still in the carrying case because of the clear
front window.
To calibrate the ST4, adjust the two “OFFSET”
pots on the front of the meter labeled “T1” and “T2”.
The best way to calibrate is to match to a known
temperature. Ice water is very close to 32ºF and is
readily available. Accuracies of one degree or better are easily obtained.
1. Stabilize a large cup of ice water. Pure, distilled
water will be the most accurate.
2. Immerse one probe in ice water and let it stabilize.
3. Select "T1" and adjust the "T1" calibration pot
on the face of the meter to display 32.0.
4. Remove T1 from the water and repeat the previous steps 3 and 4 for "T2".

WARNINGS
!
To avoid electrical shock, do not use this instrument when voltages at the measurement surface
exceed 24VAC or 60VDC.
To avoid electrical shock, disconnect thermocouples from the ST4 before opening case or battery
cover.
To avoid damage or burns, do not take temperature measurements in microwave ovens.
When testing hot temperatures, the thermocouple
and velcro may become hot. Do not handle the thermocouple or the velcro when hot.
Note: When in HOLD or MIN/MAX, you cannot
change ºC/ºF or resolution (1º/0.1º).

Warranty
Service
The product is warranted to the original purchaser against defects in material or workmanship for a
period of one (1) year from the date of purchase.
During the warranty period, Fieldpiece Instruments
will, at its option, replace or repair the defective unit.
This warranty does not apply to defects resulting
from abuse, neglect, accident, unauthorized repair,
alteration, or unreasonable use of the instrument.
Any implied warranty arising out of the sale of
Fieldpiece's products including but not limited to
implied warranties of merchantibility, and fitness for
purpose, are limited to the above. Fieldpiece shall
not be liable for incidental or consequential damages.
Any defective ST4 should be returned to
Fieldpiece Instruments for warranty service along
with proof of purchase. Call Fieldpiece for a return
material authorization (RMA). For out of warrantee
service, send the ST4 along with a check or money
order for $40.00 to Fieldpiece. Your ST4 will be
repaired or replaced at Fieldpiece's option.

K-type Thermocouple
Model: ATB1
Max: 400ºF
Description
Broken Wires:
Warranty
The ATB1, K-Type, thermocouple can be used
continously to take temperature readings up to
400ºF and a one time use of 482ºF. The ATB1 can
be used with any thermometer which accepts a Ktype thermocouple.
The velcro allows the user to strap the ATB1 to a
pipe, allowing the user to take hands free, more
accurate measurement. The ATB1 also comes with
a wrap tab making it easy to wind and store the
thermocouple.
Due to frequent bending, the K-type thermocouple wire may break or come loose, typically near the
plug. To repair, cut and strip the thermocouple wire
near the plug. The red wire is the (-) wire and it
belongs on the wider of the two plugs. Loosen the
screws on plugs and wind the conductors around
the appropriate screws and tighten. Finally, position
the plugs into the tab and screw the tab back together.
Operation
Thermocouple Conductors: K-type Nickel
Chromium/Nickel Aluminum, 2300ºF maximum
(insulation limits max. see probe insulation).
Accuracy: -50ºF to 400ºF +/- 4ºF,
Range: -50ºF to 400ºF maximum continous operation. Single exposure use at 482°F.
Probe insulation: While calibration and atmosphere will affect maximum useful temperature in
applications, this insulation is designated to
withstand a maximum continuous use at 400°F
(240°C) and a single exposure use at 482°F
(250°C).
Plug: K-Type Thermocouple male mini plug.
The ATB1, K-Type, thermocouple is warranted
against manufacturer’s defects for one year. This
warranty does not apply to defects resulting from
abuse, neglect, accident, unauthorized repair, alteration, or unreasonable use of the instrument. Any
implied warranty arising out of the sale of
Fieldpiece's products including but not limited to
implied warranties of merchantibility, and fitness for
purpose, are limited to the above. Fieldpiece shall
not be liable for incidental or consequential damages.
To use the ATB1 plug it into any
thermometer accepting a K-type thermocouple and adjust the device to the
appropriate settings. To use velcro
strap, insert the thermocouple through
the velcro as shown to the right and
strap it so the pipe is in contact with the
thermocouple bead.
Calibration
OPERATOR’S MANUAL
Due to variances in the thermocouple wire and
other parts of the system, a field calibration should
be conducted before use. Field calibration typically
gives +/- 1ºF overall accuracy. The instructions for
this calibration should be in the operating manual
for the thermometer.
Specifications
Service
Any defective ATB1 should be returned to
Fieldpiece for warranty service along with proof of
purchase.
