Microprocessor Calibrator/Thermometer
Models 433201A and 433202A
Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of the Extech 433201A (115V) or 433202A (220V)
Microprocessor Thermocouple Calibrator/Thermometer.
In the ‘Measurement’ mode, a millivolt (mV) signal is accepted from a thermocouple and
is displayed on the 4-digit LCD display. A built-in temperature offset feature can be used
to compensate for variations found in standard thermocouples. By adjusting the offset,
measurement accuracy for a particular thermocouple can be optimized for a particular
temperature.
In the ‘Source’ mode, a millivolt signal is output to an external device with the
corresponding temperature (according to standard temperature tables) displayed on the
LCD display. Preset temperature settings (source mode only) according to thermocouple
type are stored in five memory locations for easy recall.
If desired, the meter can be switched to the mV mode where Measurement and Source
values can be displayed in millivolts rather than temperature.
Careful use of this device will provide years of reliable service.

1.
LCD display – Temperature values can be displayed in C/ F or in millivolts. The
adjustable display can be easily moved to the best viewing angle.
2.
POWER/MODE button – Press to power meter on/off and to select the desired
mode of operation. With the meter powered on, momentarily press the
POWER/MODE button (<2 sec) to toggle between MEASURE and SOURCE mode.
In MEASURE mode the meter displays the temperature or mV value for an attached
thermocouple or thermocouple simulator. In the SOURCE mode, the meter outputs
a mV signal.
To power off, press and hold the POWER/MODE button for more than 2 seconds.
FINE/COARSE output adjustment buttons – Use the ▼/▲ buttons to set the desired
temperature. Press and hold for COARSE adjustment; momentarily press for FINE
adjustment.

Operation
Measurement Mode
1.
Open the meter lid and press the POWER/MODE button to turn the meter on.
“MEASURE” will be displayed on the LCD screen. Check the battery if the meter
display does not switch on.
Note: For best accuracy, remove any input connectors before turning the unit
ON. The meter will not perform a correct self calibration if there is an input
connected.
2.
Select the thermocouple type using the TYPE button. The T/C type selected will be
indicated along the bottom of the display. Each time the TYPE button is pressed
the indicator will advance one type.
3.
Select C or F via the C/ F button.
4.
Carefully insert the thermocouple probe into the sub-miniature female connector on
the side panel.
5.
Read the temperature on the LCD display.
6.
To turn the meter off, press and hold the POWER/MODE button for more than 2
seconds.

Offset Adjustment
Thermocouples produce an output signal that is non-linear. In some instances it may be
necessary to offset the reading to compensate for the non-linearity of the thermocouple.
1.
In Measurement Mode, press and hold the ▼/▲buttons together until ”OFS” is
displayed on the LCD.
2.
Use the ▼/▲ buttons to adjust the offset from -9.0 to 9.0 F (-5.0 to 5.0 C)
3.
Press and hold the ▼/▲buttons together for less than 2 seconds to save the offset
and return to Measurement Mode.

Source Mode
1.
Open the meter lid and press the POWER/MODE button to turn the meter on.
Check the battery if the meter display does not switch on.
2.
Momentarily (<2 sec) press the POWER/MODE button to select the SOURCE
mode. “SOURCE” will be displayed on the LCD screen.
3.
Select the thermocouple type of the device to be calibrated using the TYPE button.
The T/C type selected will be indicated along the bottom of the display. Each time
the TYPE button is pressed the indicator will advance one type
4.
Select °C or °F via the °C/°F button.
5.
Carefully insert the calibration cable into the sub-miniature female connector on the
side panel.
Note: For greater accuracy, especially if there is a difference between the internal temperature of
the calibrator and the device under calibration, use a thermocouple cable rather than the copper
cable that is supplied with the calibrator. The thermocouple cable must match the thermocouple
type of the device under calibration.
6.
Connect the other end of the cable to the device to be calibrated.
Note: The SOURCE icon will blink until the output has stabilized.
7.
Allow time for the calibrator and the external device to settle to the same
temperature. This may take up to 30 minutes or longer if the devices were stored or
carried from a colder/warmer environment prior to use.
8.
Use the ▼/▲ FINE/COARSE adjustment buttons or the MEM button to select the
desired output temperature. The output temperature is displayed on the LCD
display.
9.
To turn the meter off, press and hold the POWER/MODE button for more than 2
seconds.

Auto Power Off
When the meter is turned on, the auto power off function is enabled. It will automatically
shut the meter off 10 minutes after the last button press. To disable Auto Power Off, press
and hold the TYPE button for 2 seconds until “nAtP” is displayed.

Battery Replacement and Recharging
• If the meter is to be used for an extended period of time, use of the AC adaptor is
recommended.
• For portable operation or quick checks use the rechargeable 9V Nickel Metal Hydride
battery or a 9V alkaline battery.
• Turning the meter OFF when not in use will prolong battery life.
• When the battery icon flashes, replace or recharge the battery. Note that only the
supplied 9V NiCad battery can be recharged.
• Replace the battery using the following procedure:
1. Fully open the meter.
2. Insert a coin or flat screwdriver into the slot at the back of the meter.
3. Pop the battery compartment cover and then carefully remove it in the direction of
the arrow.
4.
Replace the battery and snap the cover back in place.
• Recharge the supplied 9V Nickel Metal Hydride battery using the following procedure:
1. Turn the meter off.
2. Ensure that the rechargeable battery is installed.
3. Plug the charger/adaptor into the meter.
4. Plug the charge/adaptor into an AC outlet source.
5. Charge the battery for 24 to 48 hours before its first use. An overnight charge will
enable continuous use for approximately 45 minutes. A full charge will provide one
hour of continuous use.
