Operation
1. Select Units (Lux or Ft-candle) and the Response Time (Fast/Slow) using the slide switch. Typical
selection is Slow and Fc using the gray lettering.
2. Select the maximum range using the Range Switch.
3. Hold the Light Sensor so that the sensor faces the light source to be measured.
4. The display will indicate measured values. Use a range display multiplier if on the Lux 20,000 and
50,000 ranges or on the Fc 5000 range (see notes below).
5. To hold (freeze) a measurement, slide the Data Hold Switch to the Hold position. The reading will
freeze in the display until the Data Hold Switch is released.
Note 1: An Over Range indication is a display of "1__ ". If this occurs, switch to a higher range.
Note 2: For measurements made on the Fc 5000 range, the displayed reading must be multiplied by
10.
Note 3: For measurements made on the Lux 20000 or 50000 ranges the displayed reading must be
multiplied by 10 and 100 respectively.
Note 4: The meter will indicate values above the maximum ranges. The accuracy of these
measurements is unknown.

Example: If a measurement on the 5000 Fc range displays 350 the actual measured value is:

Selecting a Measurement Range
The meter has three measurement ranges for each unit of measure (0-200, 0-2000, and 0-5000 Fc)
and (0-2000, 0-20000, and 0-50000) Lux). The proper range selection will produce the most accurate
reading. Always select the range that produces the maximum number of digits without exceeding the
maximum count for that particular range. For example, a reading of 1456 Fc should be read on the 0
- 2000 range, not the 0-5000 range.
Zero procedure
The meter zero (display with no light input) may change with time. Occasional checking and
adjustment may be required.
1. Completely cover the sensor to block out any light.
2. Set the range switch to the lowest Lux or Fc range.
3. Using a small screwdriver, adjust the Zero control for a zero display. The last digit may
change slightly. This is normal and does not affect the accuracy of the meter.
Analog Output
The analog output jacks on the front panel produce a 0.1mV DC per digit signal that can be used for
recording or datalogging purposes.
Lighting Type Correction Factors
The 401025 light meter is calibrated under a precise Standard tungsten light source of 2856OK. If the
meter is to be used under a different type of light the correction factor of from the table below should
be applied to the readings obtained.

Replacing the Battery
When the left corner of the LCD display shows LO BAT the battery output is below the design limit and
the battery needs to be replaced. However, reliable measurement can still be taken for several hours
before the tester becomes inaccurate or switches off.
1. Open the Battery Cover at the back of the tester and remove the old battery.
2. Replace with a new 9V battery and install the cover securely.
Never dispose of used batteries or rechargeable batteries in household waste.
As consumers, users are legally required to take used batteries to appropriate
collection sites, the retail store where the batteries were purchased, or wherever
batteries are sold.
Disposal: Do not dispose of this instrument in household waste. The user is obligated to take end-oflife devices to a designated collection point for the disposal of electrical and electronic equipment.
