FAQ GIS 1000 C Professional

The tool always measures a circular area between the two laser points. The average temperature inside this area is shown as the measured value on the display. In addition to surface temperature, the tool can measure relative humidity and ambient temperature.

The shorter the distance to the measuring object, the more precise the measurement. Measuring results can become less precise at greater distances, e.g. due to high humidity, which can influence the result.

In order to achieve the best possible result, set which material you are measuring on the tool (emissivity degree). The most commonly used materials are already preset in the GIS 1000 C Professional. However, you can also enter custom values.

In difficult measuring conditions (e.g. measurement inside a ventilation system), you can also connect an external sensor. The tool has a type K connection. As soon as a sensor is connected, the tool will detect it and the sensor’s value will be shown on the display.

The small sensor between trigger and infrared measuring hole precisely measures the relative humidity and ambient temperature. The measured values can be used for different applications:

  • Thermal bridge mode: The measured surface temperature is compared to the ambient temperature in order to detect problems such as inadequate insulation. This is shown on the colour scale and helps the user to interpret the results
  • Dew point mode: The tool can use the ambient temperature and humidity to calculate the dew point. If the measured surface temperature approaches this value, the tool will display this on the interpretation scale.

Measurement begins as soon as the trigger is pressed and ends when the trigger is released.

A thermal imaging camera is used to measure temperature distribution over a larger area. Thousands of measurement points are combined to form an image, delivering a quick overview of critical areas. This helps you, for example, to quickly identify problems in areas on which you have to find temperature differences.

Spot measurement with the GIS 1000 C Professional precisely measures the surface temperature of a small area. In addition, you can also (depending on application and requirement) measure the relative humidity and ambient temperature. The GIS 1000 C Professional is therefore suitable for precise, versatile measurements. It helps with the detailed analysis of small areas and the measurement of individual spots.

Description: This is the ratio of the distance between measuring tool and measuring object to the diameter of the measuring area.

Characteristics: The closer the user holds the tool to the measuring object, the smaller the measuring area and the more precise the measurement.

The greater the distance to the measuring object, the larger the area measured (tapered measurement principle), i.e. the displayed temperature is calculated over a larger area.

Note: In order to obtain exact measured values, the measuring object should be at least as large as the distance between the two laser points.

bluetooth icon Establish Bluetooth® connection

First make sure that Bluetooth® is activated on the measuring tool and on the smartphone/tablet, and that the devices are within range. In the app you can then use bluetooth icon to establish a Bluetooth® connection between the measuring tool and the smartphone/tablet. Please note that the connection must always be established via the app, not via the settings menu of your smartphone/tablet.

We recommend that you use our GLM Transfer Software, which is available for free download, to transfer measured values from your GLM to your computer. The measurement images taken by the GIS can be transferred to a PC via USB.

No. You can use maximum one measuring tool. Check first whether Bluetooth® is activated on the GLM/GIS and on the smartphone/tablet, and whether both devices are within range. Alternatively, you can open the selection using bluetooth icon.

Depending on on-site conditions (obstacles, sunlight, etc.), it is possible to maintain a connection between your smartphone/tablet and the measuring tool for up to approx. 10 metres.

If the tool has been connected to the app before, it will be automatically recognised when it is reconnected as long as the app is open on the smartphone/tablet, Bluetooth® is activated on both devices and the devices are within range.

The unit of measurement corresponds to the unit selected in the app, regardless of the measuring tool. To change the unit of measurement, switch to “Settings” and select “Units of measurement”. Confirm with “Save”. All existing and new app measurements will be shown in the new selected unit of measurement.

When individual measured values are transferred from a GLM in real time, their time & date is the time & date when the measurement was taken. Please check the time & date set in your smartphone/tablet PC, as the time & date are applied based on the time & date set in your smartphone/tablet PC.

The aluminium rail absorbs a lot of the signal; therefore data transfer via Bluetooth® is not an intended use. However, the measured angle can be stored in the measured value list and can then be transferred once the tool is taken out of the R 60 Professional.

You can enter a measured value using the GLM by plotting an element in the photo and then measuring, selecting a measured value directly from the measured value list or entering it manually.

The best possible image quality is determined by the capabilities of your smartphone/tablet. Before exporting, the app checks the maximum possible image resolution that your device can process and adapts the pixel size. This ensures that the images are exported.

1. Android: The pictures are also stored without measurements in a separate folder in the gallery of the smartphone/tablet.

2. iOS: No pictures are stored in the gallery.

b. Measurements with GIS 1000 C Professional (not available in all countries)

If there is an existing connection between your smartphone/tablet and the GIS 1000 C Professional, measured values can be added directly after setting the measurement point by measuring with the GIS 1000 C Professional or by selecting a measured value from the gallery on the device. If no measurement point is selected, a selection window appears with options for how you can use the measured value. Alternatively, this can be done by tapping and holding the measurement point and then selecting the “Edit” option. In both cases, the measurement point flashes if a measurement can be added directly.
