EXTECH INSTRUMENTS IR Field of View Ensure that the desired target is larger than the spot size. As the distance from an object increases, the spot size of the area measured by the meter becomes larger. The meter’s field of view ratio is 8:1, meaning that if the meter is 8 inches (cm) from the target, the diameter (spot) of the object under test must be at least 1 inch (cm). Refer below to the field of view diagram. 2”

WARNING: Do not directly view or direct the laser pointer at an eye. Low power visible lasers do not normally present a hazard, but may present some potential for hazard if viewed directly for extended periods of time. Condensation Mode The Condensation feature alerts the user when the surface temperature as measured by the IR thermometer is close to or has reached the Dew Point temperature. 1.

Press the power button to turn the meter on. Simultaneously press the MOIST and RH buttons. The “COND” icon will appear. Point the meter at a surface, press the IRT button to measure the surface temperature. The small display will indicate the IR surface temperature and the large display will indicate the difference between the IR temperature and the Dew Point temperature. The meter will then report the potential for condensation on that surface in the following manner  If the temperature of the IRT is more than 14°C (25°F) above the Dew Point, the temperature difference shall be displayed, with no other warning.  If the temperature of the IRT is 3‐14°C (5‐25°F) above the Dew Point, the temperature difference shall be displayed, along with a standard Condensation Indicator icon. The meter shall beep once to confirm that the reading is in the risk area.  If the temperature of the IRT is less than 3°C (5°F) above the Dew Point, the temperature difference shall be displayed, along with a flashing Condensation Indicator icon. The meter shall beep twice to confirm that the reading is in the high‐risk area. Press the RH button to exit the mode. 7
