F.A.Q.

Q: Is the laser what takes the measurement?
A: No, the laser is just a visual aid to help users understand where the sensor is pointed.

Q: Does the accuracy of the tool change over distance?
A: No accuracy stays the same. What contributes to a change of temperature at different distances is the change in size of the spot being measured. At longer distances the tool is measuring the average temperature over a larger surface than when used at close range.

Q: Do I need to calibrate my tool at some point?
A: The tool comes calibrated during the manufacturing process. While the tool can stay calibrated indefinitely it is recommended for those requiring up-to-date calibration documentation to calibrate the tool every year.

Q: Why is it that some materials feel hotter or colder than others but read the same temperatures?
A: Some materials conduct heat better than others. Steel has high conductivity. When you touch steel heat flows quickly from your finger to the metal making your skin rapidly cool off and feel cold. Wood on the other hand is a poor heat conductor (better insulator) and blocks the flow of heat from your hand making your skin not cool off and making the wood feel warmer than the steel even though they are both at room temperature.
