  User Instructions
Dry measurements: Temperature Range: 5-60 oC Humid measurements: 20-90% RH symmetrically both sides on the following temperature range: 20-40 oC, Limited RH ranges at temperatures 10-20 oC and 40-50 oC The sample must be cut to a size of 10 x 10 cm using the supplied template. Fold the card along the folding line, so it folds easily and place it on the table with the inside facing upwards. • Place the sample with the face up above the hole on the short side of the card. The sample must cover the hole; it must not protrude over the edge of the card or the fold. There must be a bit of empty space around the sample. Fold the long side of the card over the sample and press it down over the short side of the card so it is straight. Use a blunt instrument to press along the edges to make the glue stick.
