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.

11. 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.

(typical values)
A specific spot is determined depending on the distance from the
measuring instrument to the object being measured.

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.

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:
