Surface Temperature Measurement NOTE: The ThermoPro TP30 cannot measure the temperature of objects Behind glass. Inaccuracy may also Occur when exposed to steam, dust or any other contaminants in the air.

  1. Place the included AAA batteries into the Battery Compartment, then press the Measurement Trigger lo activate the thermometer
  2. Point the TP30 thermometer towards the surface you wish to
  3. Press and hold the Measurement Trigger and the laser will activate for aiming (Laser will only appear if enabled. Laser is turned on by default.)
  4. Keep holding the Measurement Trigger as you move the TP30 if you wish to continually take a measurement of the surface
  5. Once the laser is pointed to the desired point of measurement, release the Measurement Trigger and the Upper Display will show the last measured temperature
  6. Press the Measurement Trigger once again to make another measurement
  • HOLD for continuous temperature

  • RELEASE to lock the temperature result


The emissivity of a material is its efficiency in emitting thermal energy. Non-reflective surfaces have a higher emissivity (closer to 1) than reflective surfaces (closer to 0). Inaccurate results may occur when measuring reflective surfaces such as glass, polished wood, and granite. To take accurate temperature measurement of reflective surfaces with low emissivity, place a strip of masking tape over the surface and allow for it to adjust to the temperature of the surface for approximately 30 minutes. Measure the surface, scanning the taped section, eliminating the issue of inaccuracy.

The default emissivity of this device is 0.95, which is suitable for surface temperature measurement of most organic materials and painted objects. If you would like to improve the measurement accuracy of different objects, you can refer to the emissivity table below :

Objects Emissivity Objects Emissivity
Aluminum 0.30 Iron 0.70
Asbestos o.9s Lead o.5o
Asphalt 0.95 Limestone 0.98
Basalt 0.70 Oil 0.94
Bt888 0.50 Paint 0.93
Brick 0.90 Paper 0.95

Hot food 0 93 Fabric 0.94
Glass 0.85 Water 0.93
Ice 0 98 wood 0.94

Distance-Spot Ratio

The ThermoPro TP30 measures surface temperature base dontheis{anceto spot diameter ratio (D: S). As the distance between the thermometer and the surface increases, the total surface area measured will also increase. With a distance to spot ratio of 12:J, the surface area measured has a diameter of roughly 1/J 2 the distance.

For the most accurate results, make sure the target has a surface area of twice the corresponding spot diameter. Insufficient surface area will result in inaccurate results. The recommended distance to hold the thermometer from the surface of measurement is 7.87inch (20cm) away from the surface. This creates a spot measurement area of 0.6óinch(J.67cm) in diameter.

Distance (D) to Spot (S) size D:S=12:1

Replacing Batteries

Low Battery Indication will appear on the Upper Display when the thermometer’s batteries are running low. Immediately replace the batteries when the icon appears.

  1. Open the Battery Compartment and remove the used batteries. Dispose of the used batteries
  2. Insert two new AAA batteries with the correct
  3. Close the Battery Compartment

The device certification information is labeled directly on the device. The sticker is located on the left side of the thermometer The device warning and aperture safety information are also labeled directly on the device; this sticker is located on the right side of the thermometer.
