NOTE: Battery compartment on back of meter Meter Power The meter is powered by one 9V battery; press the Power button to switch the meter ON. Press and hold the Power button for at least 2 seconds to switch the meter OFF. When powering ON, the meter performs a self‐test whereby the LCD display counts down to zero before stabilizing at the normal operation screen. If the meter does not switch ON when prompted, or if the low battery icon is showing on the LCD, please replace the battery. Refer to the battery installation section for detailed information. The Auto Power OFF feature switches the meter OFF after a 10‐minute period of inactivity. To defeat this feature please refer to the Setup Mode section. 3

Measurements Taking Relative Humidity /Dew Point and Air Temperature Measurements 1.
Connect the electrode to the probe input socket located on the bottom of the meter. 2.
Switch the meter ON by pressing the Power button. 3.
The display will indicate Air temperature on the lower left (in small digit format) and either %RH or Dew point temperature on the upper right. 4.
Press the Function button to select either %RH or Dew Point Temperature. 5.
Press the Hold button to freeze the current values on the display. 6.
Press the REC button to access the MIN‐MAX Recording mode. See detailed information in the MIN‐MAX Recording section. 7.
Press and hold the Power button for 2 seconds to turn the meter OFF. Data Hold 1.
Press the HOLD button to freeze the displayed value. 2.
The LCD will display HOLD along with the held reading. 3.
Press the HOLD button again to release the data hold function. The HOLD display icon will switch OFF. MIN‐MAX Recording When selected, the Data Recording function records the MIN (lowest) and MAX (highest) readings: 1. Press the REC button once to start recording MIN and MAX readings. The REC indicator will appear on the display. 2. Press REC again and REC MAX will display on the screen along with the maximum value. 3. Press REC again and the display will show REC MIN along with the minimum value. 4. To view the real time readings while continuing to track the MIN and MAX values, press the HOLD button while either the REC MAX or REC MIN icons are visible; now only the REC icon will be visible. The meter is now continuing to monitor the highest (MAX) and lowest (MIN) readings but is displaying real time measurements. To view the MAX and MIN values again use the REC button as described earlier. 5. To exit the Record mode and reset the MIN and MAX values, press and hold the REC button for at least 2 seconds. The display will return to the normal operating mode and the REC/MAX/MIN icons will all disappear. 4
