Safety Information

A Warning identifies conditions and procedures that are dangerous to the user. A Caution identifies conditions and procedures that can cause damage to the Product or the equipment under test.
Table 1 tells you about symbols used on the Product and in this manual.
To prevent eye damage and personal injury:

  • Read all safety information before you use the Product.
  • Do not use the Product if it operates incorrectly.
  • Use the Product only as specified, or the protection supplied by the Product can be compromised.
  •  Before you use the Product, inspect the case. Do not use the Product if it appears damaged. Look for cracks or missing plastic.
  • See emissivity information for actual temperatures. Reflective objects result in lower than actual temperature measurements. These objects pose a burn hazard.
  •  Do not look directly into the laser with optical tools (for example, binoculars, telescopes, microscopes). Optical tools can focus the laser and be dangerous to the eye.
  • Do not look into the laser. Do not point laser directly at persons or animals or indirectly off reflective surfaces. Replace the batteries when the low battery indicator shows to prevent incorrect measurements.
  • Do not use the Product around explosive gas, vapor, or in damp or wet environments.
  •  Use the Product only as specified or hazardous laser radiation exposure can occur.
