Note: Shiny or polished surfaces can give inaccurate
readings. To compensate for this, cover the surface with
masking tape or at colored paint. When the tape or paint
reaches the same temperature as the target underneath,
measure the temperature of the item.
Note: The thermometer cannot measure through transparent
surfaces such as glass or plastic. It will measure the surface
Note: Steam, dust, smoke, and other optical obstructions can
prevent accurate measurement. Hold the thermometer back
and at an angle for an accurate measurement.
Field of View (g. E)
The Thermal Leak Detector measures temperature over an
area that may be larger than the LED spot, especially if you
are far away from the surface you are measuring. The
diameter of the measured area is 1/6 the distance from the
Detector. In other words, if you are 6 inches (152 mm) from
the target, the Detector will measure the average temperature
over a circle 1 inch (25mm) in diameter. As shown in the table
below, the farther the distance from the target, the larger the

If you are just looking for hot and cold areas, it's OK if the
scanned area is larger than your target. However, if you want
to accurately measure the temperature of an object, move the
Detector close so that the scanned area is about half the size
of the object you want to measure.
