This is the new version of our current model. Quick tips for getting started:

  1. To turn on, hold the square button on the side about 2 seconds (it will beep when it turns on)
  2. Insert probe (same as old ones, spares are in the supply room I the special equipment cart); it has a red lens cap to help keep it clean – please replace this after use
  3. The light turns green on the tip when it is level; there will be a warning on the screen if you are too far or too close to the eye
  4. Push the arrow to measure … it will average the measurements (discards highest and lowest of 6) and display in green; if there is too much variability, it recommends repeating your measurement.
  5. Hold the square button down for 2 seconds again to turn it off.

If you get an error message, please email Brad Chappell.
