1. About the infrared lamp
Dear valued customer,
Thank you for choosing one of our products. Our name stands for high-quality, thoroughly tested products for applications in the areas of heat, weight, blood pressure, body temperature, pulse, gentle therapy, massage and air.
With kind regards Your Beurer team
This infrared lamp is only intended for radiating the human body. Infrared radiation causes warmth to be transported to the human body. The blood supply in the radiated skin is increased and the metabolic turnover in the field of temperature enhanced. The mode of action of the infrared light encourages the body to heal; healing processes are thus assisted in a specific area. Infrared light can be used as a parallel treatment in diseases of the ear, nose and throat and to assist in facial and beauty care, especially in case of impure skin. However, first ask your family doctor whether application in the individual case is advisable from a medical standpoint.

Remove the unit from the packaging. Remove all packaging material before using the appliance. Before use, check whether the infrared lamp is properly screwed in. Place the device on flat surfaces. The appliance has an adjustable lampshade. Set the angle of the fluorescent screen in accordance with your individual requirements.
Connect the unit only to the mains voltage listed on the type plate.
· Ensure that there is a socket near the place where the lamp will stand. · Lay the mains cable in such a way that no one can trip over it.
Replacing the fuse (UK plug only)
If the fuse needs replacing, please observe the following: · Remove the mains plug. · Lift out the fuse holder from the inside of the mains plug using a flat screwdriver. · Pull out the fuse from the fuse holder and replace it with a new fuse type: 3A (breaking capacity 6 kA at 240 V)
in accordance with BS-1362 / SS167. · Press the fuse holder containing the new fuse into the plug slot. · Plug the mains plug into the socket and test to see if it works.
1 Switching on the lamp
To connect to the mains, fully insert the plug into the socket. Once inserted, the ,,5 min” LED will
flash. This is the readiness indicator (standby). Press the On/Off button (4) once to switch on the lamp.
2 Enjoying the light
The recommended duration of treatment is maximum 15 minutes and should be limited to a maximum of two treatments a day. We recommend selecting a shorter radiation period to start with. However, the skin of some people may show an over-sensitive (e.g. with extreme redness, blistering, itching, heavy sweating) or allergic reaction to heat radiation, even when the lamp is used correctly. If symptoms are not relieved after 6 to 8 applications, stop using the device and consult your doctor.
3 LED display/timer
The IL 35 infrared lamp indicates your current treatment time with the aid of 3 LEDs. The treatment time can be set at the following 3 levels. To scroll through the timer, hold down the On/Off button (4) until the required timer level lights up. The levels are as follows:
Treatment time 5 minutes 10 minutes 15 minutes
Number of lit LEDs 1 2 3
The lamp switches off automatically once the set treatment time has elapsed. To switch off the lamp manually, repeatedly press the On/Off button (4) until only the ,,5 min” LED is flashing, the other LEDs are off and the lamp goes out.
4 Important instructions
The distance between the infrared lamp and the radiated part of the body should not be less than the following: at least 32 in (80 cm)
Protective eyewear which corresponds to the requirements of DIN EN 171 2002 must be worn for treatment distances under 80 cm. For treatment distances above 80 cm, closing your eyes is sufficient. CAUTION: Never look directly into the infrared light without protective eyewear.
Basically, examine the radiated section of the body regularly. Discontinue radiation immediately if any signs of an over-sensitive or allergic reaction appear and consult a physician.
