Function/Application

The CondenseSpot is an infrared temperature measuring instrument with an integrated hygrometer that permits non-contact temperature measurements on surfaces as well as the measurement of relative humidity and ambient temperature. The instrument measures how much electromagnetic energy is emitted in the infrared wavelength range and uses this information to calculate surface temperature. During this process, two additional integrated sensors detect relative humidity and ambient temperature. The dew point is also calculated.

8. Dew point temperature is the temperature at which current air conditions would produce condensation. The CondenseSpot calculates the dew point temperature from ambient temperature, relative humidity, and ambient atmospheric pressure. In combination with the infrared thermometer, thermal bridges are easily detected. If the temperature of the measured location drops below the dew point, condensation (water) will form on the surface.Laserliner Condense Spot XP 8

9. Relative humidity
The relative humidity is indicated in relation to the maximum possible humidity (100 %) at which air forms water vapor. The ability of air to hold water is temperature-dependent. Thus humidity is the volume of water vapor in the air. The range for humidity is 0 … 100%. 100% = saturation point.
Under these conditions for temperature and atmospheric pressure, air cannot absorb any more water.Laserliner Condense Spot XP 9

When temperature fluctuations (± 1 °C) and/or changes to relative humidity (± 1%) are rapid, the sensor must adapt itself to the new conditions. An hourglass with a progress bar is displayed during this stabilization process.
During this process, displayed values are only approximations. Only after these symbols have been switched off is a stable value presented which represents maximum accuracy.

10. Setting the emission coef cientLaserliner Condense Spot XP 10

A built-in sensor head detects the material/surface-specific infrared rays emitted by every object. The level of these emissions is determined by the material‘s emission coefficient (0.01 to 0.99). This instrument is preset to an emission coefficient of 0.95, which is applicable to most organic materials as well as plastics,  ceramics, wood, rubber, and stone. For details of those materials with a different emission coefficient, please refer to the table.

Unknown emission coefficient:
Apply masking tape or black matt paint to the surface of the area whose temperature you wish to measure. Wait until the tape/paint has heated up.
The temperature of the surface can then be measured with an emission coefficient of 0.95.
