CALIBRATION, CERTIFICATION AND SERVICE
No. 0451
Certification
Comark can provide certificates of calibration for its whole product range, to suit
ISO 9000 and other quality assurance procedures, food hygiene regulations,
HACCPs and environmental regulations. Comark certificates are produced by
independent quality controlled processes which compare product performance
against agreed National Standards. For peace of mind and best practice Comark
recommend annual certification/recalibration.
Two levels of certification are available for infra-red temperature and non
temperature instruments, excluding humidity:- UKAS certificates via an external
accredited laboratory and NPL traceable certificates from the Comark calibration
laboratory.
Three levels of certification are available for contact temperature and humidity
products and these are detailed here:
a) UKAS Temperature Certification
The Comark UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) accredited
temperature calibration laboratory is one of the finest in the UK. Comark
UKAS certificates can offer the lowest uncertainty of 0.01°C and
provide independent proof of correct calibration using equipment and
procedures audited by UKAS inspectors. The equipment used is fully
traceable to the National Physical Laboratory.
b) UKAS Humidity Certification
In addition to the Comark temperature laboratory, the humidity laboratory
continues the tradition of high accuracy certification and a wide range
(25% to 90%RH) with uncertainties of 2.8% of reading. This range also
includes Dew point measurements.
c) NPL Traceable Certification
Comark NPL certificates are traceable to the National Physical
Laboratory and can offer uncertainty as low as 0.3°C.
Conformance
Certificates of conformance can be supplied for new, serviced and recalibrated
instruments. These confirm that instruments are within their original manufactured
specification.

2.
N9002 THERMOMETER WITH BIOCOTE®
PROTECTION
BioCote® is a silver based antimicrobial agent that is
impregnated into the instrument case during moulding.
BioCote® effectively inhibits the function, growth and
reproduction of a wide range of micro-organisms and its
protection is increasingly accepted as part of HACCP, due
diligence and health and safety procedures to reduce cross
contamination. BioCote® protection lasts for the life of the
instrument because the agent is present throughout the case
plastic and cannot rub off or be washed or leached out.
BioCote® active ingredients are registered with the US
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Although BioCote® inhibits the growth of micro-organisms on
the instrument case, it does not protect individuals against such
harmful organisms or remove the need to maintain the highest
standards of personal and product hygiene and cleanliness.

this mode. Pressing ENTER/HOLD again will cancel display
hold.
6.2 Maximum & Minimum Mode
The N9002 instrument automatically updates the maximum
and minimum readings as soon as the instrument is
switched on. These can be displayed by pressing the MAX
or MIN buttons. If both channels, T1 and T2, are enabled,
MAX or MIN is displayed for both channels. If T1 or T2 only
is enabled both MAX and MIN are displayed together for
the enabled channel. MAX and MIN readings can be reset
individually at any time for all channels by pressing CLEAR
followed by either MAX or MIN.

6.3 Differential Mode (DIFF)
There are two DIFF modes available for the N9002, single
channel and twin channel. If only one channel (T1 or T2)
is enabled the instrument will memorise the temperature
at the moment the DIFF button is pressed and displays
this temperature on the lower left area of the LCD. It also
displays the difference between the current temperature and
the memorized temperature on the lower right area of the
LCD. The main display area shows the current temperature.
If both channels (T1 and T2) are enabled the instrument
will display the difference between T1 and T2 on the main
display and T1 and T2 actual temperatures on the lower left
and lower right areas respectively.
6.4 Clear MAX, Clear MIN
To clear MAX or MIN from the memory press CLEAR
followed by MAX or CLEAR followed by MIN.
N.B. The N9002 thermometer clears MAX and MIN
individually.
7.0 CONNECTING PROBES
The N9002 thermometer is a two-channel instrument using
sub-miniature connectors. When connecting probes to the
N9002 always remember to check the polarity of the plug before
fitting. In order to get correct results make sure that you have
selected the correct thermocouple type for the probe that you
have connected.
Note: It is recommended that insulated thermocouples be used.
8.0 CARE OF THE THERMOMETER
The N9002 thermometer is dust and waterproof as stated in
the specifications and will withstand harsh environments. Use
a damp cloth or warm soapy water to remove deposits and
prevent them from hardening or becoming sticky. Do not use
solvent-based cleaners or methylated spirit, etc.
Caution: Do not place the N9002 thermometer in a dishwasher.
If the instrument is to be stored for an extended period (for
example as a spare unit) remove the battery to eliminate the
risk of leakage.

9.0
CHANGING THE BATTERIES
The symbol BAT flashes on the display as soon as the battery
voltage drops to an initial warning level. During this first level
of low battery the instrument can be operated normally, but it is
recommended that the battery be replaced as soon as possible.
If the battery is allowed to discharge further there is a second
level of low battery, which is indicated by the symbol remaining
on and not flashing. Replace the battery straight away after
seeing this symbol.
To replace the battery: Make sure the instrument is off,
unscrew the screw retaining the battery cover on the rear of
the instrument using the correct size flat-blade screwdriver.
Remove the two cells and replace with new alkaline cells to
ensure long life. Be careful to observe the correct polarity. Take
care not to over-tighten the screw when re-fitting the cover, and
not to lose the rubber-sealing washer.
Note: The N9002 thermometer will continue to keep correct
date & time for at least 30 seconds after removal of cells. If this
time is exceeded setup may be necessary.
Note: NiCd or NiMh cells can be used but will result in reduced
operating time. Do not attempt to recharge the cells in the
instrument.
