The Table is split into three sections or columns….

Ambient Temperature – For the purposes of the specifications we quote Operational Performance at an Ambient temperature of 23°C or 73°F. This is the ambient temperature of the test laboratory where the KM814FS is calibrated during manufacture and the specifications quoted are valid for this ambient temperature. We do not quote the performance for other ambient temperature ranges as this would get very complicated very quickly.

Measured Temperature – The total measurement range of the KM814FS is -30°C to +200°C or -25°F to +400°F, however there isn’t a simple Accuracy statement that we can quote that covers the whole range, so we’ve split it into three clear ranges.

Accuracy – For each of the measurement ranges, we quote the accuracy as clearly as possible, so that you know how accurate your thermometer is over that given measurement range. For example measuring temperature in the range 0°C to 65°C or 32°F to 150°F is very straightforward, it is simply ±1°C or ±2°F


Usage Tip

Whilst Infrared Thermometers are a fast and safe way of taking surface temperature measurements, greater accuracy can be achieved with certain foodstuffs by stirring, mixing or bringing food from the bottom or center of the product to the surface, wherever practical. With liquid foodstuffs like sauces and soups for example, a sample of the liquid should be brought from the bottom of the container before using the KM814FS Infrared Food Thermometer with Laser Sighting to take a temperature measurement. For semi-solid foodstuffs simply use a clean spoon or similar utensil create an opening in the center of the material and use the laser sighting to target the food inside.
