Dual Laser InfraRed (IR) Thermometer
MODEL 42570
Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of the Model 42570 IR Thermometer. This Infrared thermometer
°
°
measures and displays non-contact temperature readings up to 3992 F/2200 C (certified to
°
°
2000 F/1100 C). At 50”, built-in dual lasers converge to 1” target spot to insure accurate targeting
and temperature measurement. Advanced features include a USB PC interface and software,
100ms response time, Max/Min/Ave/Diff displays adjustable emissivity and High/Low alarms. Proper
use and care of this meter will provide years of reliable service.
Safety

Use extreme caution when the laser pointer is on

Do not point the beam toward anyone's eye or allow the beam
to strike the eye from a reflective surface

Do not use the laser near explosive gases or in other
potentially explosive areas

Operating Instructions
IR Temperature Measurements
1. Hold the meter by its handle and point it toward the surface to be measured.
2. Pull and hold the trigger to turn the meter on and begin testing. “SCAN” and the temperature
reading will appear on the large display. The upper and lower sub-displays will indicate
values/settings previously used.
3. Release the Trigger and the reading will hold for approximately 7 seconds (“HOLD” will appear
on the LCD) after which the meter will automatically shut off. The only exception to this is if the
LOCK mode is set to ON.
The MODE button options
With the trigger pulled (SCAN displayed), Press the MODE button to view and scroll through:
MAX :
Maximum value measured
MIN:
Minimum value measured
DIF:
Difference between the Max and Min values
AVG:
Average of the measured values
LOG:
A memory location is displayed in the small upper display and the value in that location
is displayed in the small lower display. Press the ▲ or ▼ buttons to scroll through the
locations.

Dual Laser Pointer and Backlight Button
The dual laser pointers are designed to cross at a distance of 50” (76cm). The spot size at this
distance is a 1” diameter and this is the recommended distance to target for most measurements.
To turn the lasers on/off:
1. Press and Hold the Trigger
). Either the
2. While SCAN is on the display, press and release the backlight/laser button (
backlight or laser pointers will change status (On/Off). Repeat this until the desired conditions
are set. The laser icon
will appear in the LCD when the laser function is enabled.
3. The status of the functions will be stored in memory and will remain as the default “turn-on”
condition until changed.
High and Low Alarm Feature
When either programmed alarm (high or low) point is reached the meter will alert the user via an
audible beep and a blinking LCD display icon. The alarm limit is set and the feature is
enabled/disabled using the MODE button. The setting is stored and memory and will remain as the
“turn-on” condition until changed.
Temperature Units
The temperature units can be set to °F or °C. The selection is made using the MODE button.
Lock feature
The LOCK feature disables the Auto Power Off feature for the period of use when selected. The
feature is useful for long term temperature monitoring and hands free use. The meter will revert to
auto power off if the trigger is pressed during a locked scan. The selection is made using the MODE
button. Turn on the 42570 by pressing the trigger. Once on, release the trigger and press and hold
the MODE button until the LOCK icon ( ) appears. Press the arrow key (▼) until the display says
ON. Press the trigger once and the meter will stay on until the trigger is pressed again.
Over-range Indication
If the temperature measurement exceeds the specified temperature range, the thermometer will
display dashes in place of a temperature reading.
USB Function
The supplied software and cable are used to transmitt the IR and Type K measurement data to a
PC via USB.
To Turn-on or Shut-off the USB function:
1.
With MAX, MIN, DIF, or AVG displayed, press the LIGHT/LASER button until “USB” sign
appears in the right lower corner of the LCD. USB is active.
2.
Press the LIGHT/LASER button again until “USB” disappears. The USB function is off.
Refer to the help file in the software for operational details.
Data Logger
Storing Data: The thermometer is capable of storing up to 100 data points.
Infrared: To store data from an infrared reading,
1.
Pull and Hold the trigger
2.
Press the MODE button until LOG appears in the lower left corner of the display; a log
location number will be displayed. If no temperature has been recorded in the displayed
LOG location, 4 dashes will appear in the lower right corner.
3.
Aim the unit at the target area you want to record, and press the laser/backlight button. The
recorded temperature will appear in the lower right corner.
4.
To select another log location, press the up and down keys.

Recalling Data: To recall stored data after the unit shuts off,
1.
Press the MODE button until LOG appears in the lower left corner. A LOG location number
will be shown below LOG, and the stored temperature for that location will be display.
2.
To move to another LOG location, press the UP and Down keys.
Log Clear Function: To clear the memory,
The “Log clear” function allows you to quickly clear all logged data points. This function can only
be used when the unit is in the LOG mode.
1.
While in LOG mode, press the trigger, and then press the “down” arrow button until LOG
location “0” is displayed. Note: This can only be done when the trigger is pulled. LOG
location “0”cannot be accessed, by using the “up” arrow button.
2.
When LOG location “0” shows in the display, press and release the laser/backlight button,
then press and release the up arrow key. A tone will sound, and the LOG location will
automatically change to “1”, signifying that all data locations have been cleared.
Battery Replacement
When the low battery symbol
appears on the display, replace the meter’s battery (9V). The
battery compartment is located behind the panel that surrounds the meter’s trigger.

IR Measurement Notes
1. The object under test should be larger than the spot (target) size calculated by the field of view
diagram (printed on the side of the meter and in this guide).
2. Before measuring, be sure to clean surfaces that are covered with frost, oil, grime, etc.
3. If an object's surface is highly reflective, apply masking tape or flat black paint to the surface
before measuring. Allow time for the paint or tape to adjust to the temperature of the surface it is
covering.
4. Measurements are not possible through visibly transparent materials, such as glass.
5. Steam, dust, smoke, etc. can obscure measurements.
6. The meter automatically compensates for deviations in ambient temperature. However, it can
take up to 30 minutes for the meter to adjust to extremely wide changes.
7. To find a hot spot, aim the meter outside the area of interest then scan across (in an up and
down or side to side motion) until the hot spot is located.
Field of View
The meter’s field of view is 50:1. For example, if the meter is 50 inches from the target (spot), the
diameter of the target must be greater than 1 inch. Other distances are shown in the field of view
diagram. Measurements should normally be made as close as possible to the 1” spot distance. The
meter can measure from longer distances, but the measurement may be affected by external
sources of light. In addition, the spot size may be so large that it encompasses surface areas not
intended to be measured.
