(Almost all types support). Usually, if an infrared thermometer supports the temperature unit switch, there will be a button called ℃/℉ on it. So if you find the ℃/℉ button on your thermometer, just press it to change the temperature unit displaying on the screen readout.
Accordingly, how do I clear the memory on my infrared thermometer?
In power off, press and button together for two seconds, to display the last temperature measurement. In this mode, change the order number to 0 and press the MODE button, to delete all memory.
In this way, how do I reset my IR 988 infrared thermometer?
To reset the unit, remove the batteries, wait 2 minutes and then re-install the batteries.
How do I set a contactless infrared thermometer?
Short of using a black body, the next best way to calibrate your infrared thermometer is to use a simple, inexpensive Infrared Comparator Cup. It is best to calibrate your infrared thermometer at more than one temperature (at 41°F [5°C] and 140°F [60°C] for example) and the Infrared Comparator Cup makes it easy.
How to reset infrared thermometer?
- Fill a glass with crushed ice.
- Add a little clean water until the glass is full and stir.
- Wait for about three minutes before inserting the sensor on the thermometer into the ice-filled water.
- Wait for about thirty seconds and check that the thermometer reads 32°F.
Put the thermometer stem or probe into the ice water. Make sure the sensing area is under water. Wait 30 seconds or until the reading stays steady. Adjust the thermometer so it reads 32˚F (0˚C).
Warning and Error Codes
E1- The operational (ambient) temperature is BELOW specification range. E2 – The operational (ambient) temperature is ABOVE specification range. E4 – Sensor / circuit error (usually, this means the device needs to be repaired)
An Err message can appear on the thermometer’s display if: the sensor is too warm before powering on the thermometer. the temperature reading is incomplete. the thermometer has an internal problem.
Replace the battery
Use an insulated probe to remove the battery (e.g. a toothpick) Insert a new battery (LR41) with the + pole facing upwards. Reattach the battery compartment cover. Dispose of the empty battery in the proper way.
