Initial Operation Insert battery: See 9.1 Changing the battery. 7. Operation 7.1 Connecting probe (testo 830-T2 only) Connect temperature probe to probe socket. Observe +/-! 7.2 Switching on/off Switch on instrument: or measurement button. - All display segments light up briefly. The instrument changes to the infrared mode ( lights up). Preserving product safety/warranty claims: Operate the instrument properly and according to its intended purpose and within the parameters specified. Do not use force. Do not expose to electromagnetic radiation (e.g. microwaves, induction heating systems), static charge, heat or extreme fluctuations in temperature. Do not store together with solvents (e.g. acetone). Open the instrument only when this is expressly described in the documentation for maintenance purposes. 8. Settings 10.

Information on infrared measurement 11.1 Measurement method testo 830 is a compact infrared thermometer for the non-contact measurement of surface temperatures. Using testo 830-T2, it is possible to carry out additional contact measurements by attaching probes. Not suitable for diagnostic measurements in the medical sector! 9.2 Clean instrument Do not use abrasive cleaning agents or solutions. Clean the housing with a damp cloth (soap water). Carefully clean the lens with water or cotton buds dipped in water or medical alcohol. Infrared measurement is an optical measurement Keep lens clean. Do not measure with clouded lens. Keep measurement field (area between instrument and object being measured) free of interferences: no dust and dirt particles, no moisture (rain, steam) or gases. Infrared measurement is a surface measurement If there is dirt, dust, frost etc. on the surface, only the top layer will be measured, i.e. the dirt. In the case of shrinkwrapped foodstuffs, do not measure in air pockets. If values are critical, always subsequently measure using a contact thermometer. Particularly in the food sector, the core temperature should be measured with a penetration/immersion thermometer. Adaptation time If the ambient temperature changes (change of location, e.g. inside/outside measurement) the instrument needs an adaptation time of 15 minutes for infrared measurement. The display light remains for 15 seconds every time a button is activated. Switch off instrument: Keep pressed until display darkens. The instrument switches off after 1min (testo 830-T1) or 10min (testo 830-T2) if no buttons are activated. 11.2 Emissivity 11.3 Measurement spot, Distance Materials have different emissivities, i.e. they emit different levels of electromagnetic radiation. The emissivity of testo 830 is set in the factory to 0.95. This is the ideal value for measuring nonmetals, plastics and food (paper, ceramics, plaster, wood, paints and varnishes). Bright metals and metal oxides are only suited to a limited extent to infrared measurement on account of their low or nonuniform emissivity. Apply emissivity enhancing layers such as varnish or emission adhesive tape (Item no. 0554 0051) to the object being measured. If this is not possible, measure with the contact thermometer. Emissivity table of the most important materials (typical values) A specific spot is determined depending on the distance from the measuring instrument to the object being measured. Measurement optics (Ratio Distance : Measurement spot) Ø 516 mm / 20 in testo 830-T1 Ø 216 mm / Laser radiation! Do not look into laser beam. Laser class 2. Ensure correct disposal: Dispose of defective rechargeable batteries and spent batteries at the collection points provided. Send the instrument directly to us at the end of its life cycle. We will ensure that it is disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner. 9. Service and Maintenance 9.1 Changing the battery +- 4. Intended Use 7.3 Measuring Please heed information on infrared measurement/contact measurement. The instrument is switched on. Infrared measurement 1 Start measurement: Keep or measurement button pressed. 2 Locate object to be measured using laser point. testo 830-T1: laser marks the centre point of the measurement spot. testo 830-T2: Laser marks the upper and lower end of the measurement spot. - The current reading is shown (2 measurements per second) 3 End measurement: Release button. - HOLD lights up. The last reading is retained until the next measurement. Contact measurement (testo 830-T2 only) Temperature probe is connected. Position contact thermometer in/on the measurement object and activate the measurement: . - The instrument changes to the contact measurement mode ( lights up). The current reading is shown. Return to infrared meas. mode: or measurement button. Setting the emissivity Instrument is in the infrared measurement mode. If no button is pressed for 3 s in the emissivity mode, the instrument switches to the infrared measurement mode. 1 and simultaneously. 2 Set emissivity: or . - The instrument switches to the infrared measurement mode.
