How to use Reed LM-8000 Multifunctional Environmental Meter
Air Velocity Measurement
For the Air Velocity Measurements start using your Environmental Meter and select the Anemometer function by pressing the “Function Button”. Using the “Unit/Zero Button” choose the unit of the measurements and face the “Air Flow Sensor” to the source of wind. Wait a while until the displayed value becoming stable and note the value indicated.
Temperature Measurement (Thermocouple)
Using a a type K thermocouple probe plugg this into the “Thermocouple Input Socket”. With the “Temperature Function” selected contact the Thermocouple Sensor Head with the object being measured and the reading value will be displayed on the LCD display.
Humidity & Ambient Temperature Measurement
With the LM-8000 into the “Light Measurement” mode, press the “Lux/Ft-cd Button” to select the measurement’s unit (“Lux” or “Ft-cd”). Read the light measurements value on the display. For best results you should zero the light sensor prior to use in a dark environment. To achieve this, place the light sensor end of the meter under a desktop or flat surface to block any light. Press the “Unit/Zero Button” setting the meter indication to zero.
Freeze the current value of the measurements by pressing the “Hold Button”. Press again to release the hold function.
Data Record Function
Start the Data Record function by pressing the “Max./Min. Button” once. With the REC symbol on the display the meter will show the MAX or the MIN records. Switch between MAX and Min value of the measurements by pressing the “Max./Min. Button”. To exit the memory record function, press the “Max./Min. Button” continuously for at least 2 seconds. The display will revert to the current reading.
