Cautions

Improper use of this meter can cause damage, shock, injury or death. Read and understand
this user manual before operating the meter.

Inspect the condition of the probe and the meter itself for any damage before operating the
meter. Repair or replace any damage before use.

If the equipment is used in a manner not specified by the manufacturer, the protection provided
by the equipment may be impaired.

This device is not a toy and must not reach children’s hands. It contains hazardous objects as
well as small parts that the children could swallow. In case a child swallows any of them,
please contact a physician immediately

Do not leave batteries and packing material lying around unattended; they can be dangerous
for children if they use them as toys

In case the device is going to be unused for an extended period of time, remove the batteries
to prevent them from draining

Expired or damaged batteries can cause cauterization on contact with the skin. Always,
therefore, use suitable hand gloves in such cases

See that the batteries are not short-circuited. Do not throw batteries into the fire.

Operation
Powering the meter
1.
Press the Power button to turn the instrument ON
2.
If the meter does not turn on or if the "
replace the batteries.
3.
Press the Function button to select the measurement needed.
" low battery symbol appears in the display,
Note: The display orientation rotates, depending on the function selected.
Microphone up: Sound, Light, Temperature
Air speed sensor up: Airspeed + Temperature, Humidity + Temperature
Anemometer Air Velocity Measurement
1.
Select the Anemometer function by pressing "Function Button" until the display indicates
Anemometer units (ft/min, m/s, km/h, MPH, or knots).
2.
Press the "Unit/Zero Button" to select unit desired
3.
Press the “°C/°F Button” to select the temperature unit.
4.
Face the air velocity sensor into the source of wind.
5.
The display will show the air velocity and the ambient temperature.
6.
Allow time for the reading to stabilize and note the values indicated. Air velocity may fluctuate
slightly.
Temperature Measurement (Thermocouple)
1.
Plug a type K thermocouple probe into the "Thermocouple Input Socket".
2.
Select the temperature function by pressing "Function Button" unit the display shows
temperature units (°C or °F).
3.
Contact the Thermocouple Sensor Head with object to be measured
4.
The temperature value will be displayed on the LCD display.
Note: Verify the polarity when plugging a thermocouple probe into the temperature input socket.
Any temperature difference between thermocouple probe and thermometer can result in
inaccurate measurement result. Therefore, allow time for thermal equalization between probe
plug and meter input socket. The thermal equalization procedure takes few minutes and
should be applied only when the probe has been exposed to ambient temperature different
from the meter

Hygrometer Humidity & Ambient Temperature Measurement
1.
Select the Relative Humidity function by pressing "Function Button" until the display indicates
%RH.
2.
The humidity and temperature readings will be displayed on the LCD.
3.
When the meter is placed into a new environment, a few minutes are required to reach a stable
condition.
Light Measurement
1.
Select the Light Measurement function by pressing the "Function Button" until a light unit (Lux
or Ft-cd) is displayed.
2.
Press the "Lux/Ft-cd Button" to switch between "Lux" or "Ft-cd".
3.
The Display will show the light value
Zero Offset calibration of Light Function:
For best results, zero the light sensor prior to use in a dark environment. To accomplish this,
completely cover the light sensor and then press the "Unit/Zero Button".
The zero point can drift due to environment temperature and battery power change. It is
recommended that the zero be checked frequently using the above procedure.
Sound Level Measurement

appear on the display.
(c)
To exit the memory record function, press the "Max/Min Button" continuously for at least 2
seconds. The display will revert to the current reading.
(d)
Clear the Max/Min value recorded by pressing the "Hold Button" once. Previous recorded
Max/Min values will be erased and then return to REC function and continue recording.
Auto Power-off
To prolong the life of the batteries, the instrument has an "Auto Power-off" function. The meter will
automatically switch off if there are no button presses in any 10-minute period.
RS232 port
The RS232 port is used to send measurement data to a PC.
Battery Replacement
1.
When the LCD display shows "
" symbol, it is necessary to replace the battery. However,
measurement may still be made for several hours after the low battery indicator appears.
2.
Remove the two battery cover screws and remove the battery cover.
3.
Install fresh batteries DC 1.5 V battery, UM4/AAA x 6 PCs, and reinstall the cover.
