BATTERY SAFETY: Clean the battery contacts and also those of the device prior to battery installation. Remove batteries from equipment which is not to
be used for an extended period of time. Follow the polarity (+/-) diagram in the battery compartment. Promptly remove dead batteries from the device. Dispose of
used batteries properly. Only batteries of the same or equivalent type as recommended are to be used. DO NOT incinerate used batteries. DO NOT dispose of batteries
in fire, as batteries may explode or leak. DO NOT mix old and new batteries or types of batteries (alkaline/standard). DO NOT use rechargeable batteries. DO NOT
recharge non-rechargeable batteries. DO NOT short-circuit the supply terminals.

OPERATION
Using the Thermometer
Pull the trigger of the Infrared Thermometer to measure the surface
temperature of an area.
Field of Measurement
The Infrared Thermometer measures average surface temperature on the basis
of distance to spot diameter (D:S) ratio. This ratio is the size of the area being
measured by the thermometer as it relates to distance. The targeted area being
measured becomes larger as the distance from the thermometer increases. The
smaller the target, the closer the thermometer should be to it.
The D:S ratio for the Infrared Thermometer is 12:1, illustrated below.
Examples: If you're standing 12-feet (3.6 m) away from the target surface, the
area being measured will be 1-foot (0.3 m) in diameter. If your target surface is
1-inch (25 mm) in diameter, the thermometer must be within 12-inches (300 mm)
of the target.

Emissivity
Emissivity is the measurement of an object's ability to radiate heat. Emissivity
values range from 0 (shiny mirror) to 1.0 (blackbody). Most organic materials
and painted or oxidized surfaces have an emissivity close to 0.95. This
thermometer is preset (non-adjustable) to an emissivity value of 0.95. Refer to
the chart for a list of emissivity values for common surfaces.

High & Low Records
While measuring the temperature of a surface, minimum and maximum values
are recorded. Press and release the "MODE" button after releasing the trigger
to cycle through the high and low records. Records are reset each time the
thermometer powers off, 5 seconds after no buttons are pressed.

Possible Solution
• Check that the battery is installed correctly. Battery
may need to be replaced.
• Verify size of target is within the field of measurement
according to the D:S ratio (see page 3).
• Estimate emissivity value of target surface (see chart
above). If you need to measure the temperature of a
shiny surface, cover the area with a piece of masking
tape. Then, measure the temperature of the taped
surface.
