Proper temperature measurement

Point the IR unit at the object you wish to measure. Pull the trigger and read the unit's LCD. Be sure to consider the distance-to-spot size ratio and field of view.

There are important things to keep in mind while using an IR unit:

  • Measure surface temperature only. The IR unit cannot measure internal temperatures.
  • Do not take temperature measurements through glass. Glass is reflective and transmission properties do not allow for accurate infrared readings.
  • Steam, dust, smoke etc. can prevent accurate measurement by obstructing the unit's optics.
