    Operation 5. If the thermocouple is not connected when the Type-K mode is selected, the display will show dashes in place of a reading. If the measurement is out of range, the display will show ‘OL’. 6. To find the optimum emissivity setting for a given surface, take an IR tem- perature measurement and then take a Type-K measurement.
