  • Environment for use: This device is designed for use indoors.
  • This device (the infrared ear/forehead thermometer) can measure the infrared heat generated by eardrum/temple area and surrounding tissues to reflect patient’s body temperature accurately.

Precautions

  • Precision components are used in the construction of this device. Extremes in temperature, humidity, direct sunlight, water, shock or dust should be avoided.
  • There is no gender and age limitation for using the infrared thermometer.
  • Do not let children use the device by themselves and do not leave the device in a place within the reach of infants.
  • Intended operator: At least 11 years old (5 years intensive reading experience), no maximum.
  • This thermometer has been designed for everyday use. It’s not meant to replace a visit to the doctor. Please also remember to compare the measurement result to your regular body temperature. Please consult with doctor if you have health concerns.
  • Wireless communication devices, such as home networking devices, mobile phones, cordless phones and their base stations, and walkie-talkies can affect this thermometer. Therefore, a minimum distance of 3.3 meters (11 feet) should be kept from such devices.

Functions

Ear temperature
This thermometer has been designed for everyday use. It’s not meant to replace a visit to the doctor. Please also remember to compare the measurement results to your regular body temperature.
Forehead Temperature
This thermometer has been designed for everyday use. It’s not meant to replace a visit to the doctor. Please also remember to compare the measurement results to your regular body temperature. Please consult with doctor if you have health concerns.
Room temperature
Suitable ambient temperature is important for the baby and patient. The thermometer always helps you recognize the room temperature.
Surface Mode
The surface mode shows the actual and undusted surface temperature which is different from the body temperature. It can help you monitor if the object temperature is suitable for the baby or patient, for example the baby’s milk.
Fever Indication
If the thermometer detects a body temperature above 37.5°C, there will be a long beep followed by three short beeps to warn the user of potential fever.
Last Reading
When you get a new temperature reading in ear mode or forehead mode, the last reading will be shown on the screen (in the top right corner) with the last reading icon.

Memory Locations
There are a total of 25 memory sets for ear measurements. —When powered on, press the “ON/MEM” button to see the temperatures stored with memory icon.
°C / °F Switch
In “Power Off” mode, press and hold the “SCAN” button, then press the ON/MEM button for 3 seconds. The temperature icon “°C” will switch to “°F”. You can also use the same process to change from °F to °C.
Mute mode
The buzzer setting defaults to on. You can toggle the buzzer on/off in mute mode.With the power on, press and hold the “ON/MEM” button for 3 seconds. The mute icon will flash on the display. Release the “ON/MEM” button to turn on MUTE. Now you will not hear beeps. You can also use the same process to turn off the mute function.
NOTE: If you keep pressing the “ON/MEM” button for 5 seconds after the mute icon flashes, the device will turn offWITHOUT setting mute.

Installing/changing batteries

  1. Open the battery cover: Make sure the thermometer is in ”forehead mode”. Insert a coin into the twist cover at the rear of the device
    and twist it clockwise. The battery is located under the cover.
  2. Hold the device and flip the battery out with a small screwdriver.
  3. Insert the new battery under the metal hook on the left side and press the right side of the battery down until you hear a click.
  4. Replace the battery cover.
changing batteries

CAUTION

  • Keep the battery away from children.(This device is supplied with one CR2032 lithium cell.)
  • Keep the positive (+) side up and the negative (-) side pointed down.
  • Comply with local regulations for the disposal of used batteries.

Measurement

  1. Always make sure the probe is clean and undamaged.
  2. Power on: Press the “ON/MEM” button.
  3. Mode selection:
  • Ear mode: Press the “ON/MEM” button, the default mode of thermometer is ear mode. The thermometer is can be used after you see the ear icon on the display and hear two beep sounds. In this mode, you can measure the body temperature by ear measurement.
  • Forehead mode: After power on, press and hold the “ON/MEM” button, and press the “SCAN” button one time for forehead mode. The forehead icon will display and you will hear two beeps. In this mode, you can measure the body temperature by forehead measurement.
  • Surface mode: After power on, press and hold the “ON/MEM” button, and press the “SCAN” button one time for surface mode The surface icon will display. In this mode, you can measure surface temperature of an object.

4. Measuring temperature:

Ear temperature measuring. Points for attention:
(1) Gently pull the ear back to straighten the ear canal and snugly position the probe into the ear canal, aiming towards the membrane of the eardrum to obtain an accurate reading.
(2) Press and hold the “SCAN” button until you hear a beep sound. Remove the probe from the ear and read the temperature measurement on the LCD.

Measurement

NOTES

  • It is recommended that you measure 3 times with the same ear. If the 3 measurements are different, select the highest temperature.
  • To avoid the risk of cross contamination, please clean the probe according to the “Care & Maintenance” section after each use.
  • Temperature varies in healthy persons and different parts of the body can have differences between 0.2 to 1°C.

Forehead temperature measuring: Points for attention:

(1) The temporal artery, a major artery of the head, is connected to the heart via the carotid artery. This thermometer is designed to measure the skin surface around the temporal artery.
(2) Place the thermometer on the temple (see picture). (You can choose left or right temple.)
(3) Press the “SCAN” button, and gently scan around the temple area. While scanning, you will hear a beep sound, which indicates the newest measurement is taking place. Measurement is complete when the forehead icon stops flashing after a short beep. Measurement time may be between 5 ~ 8 seconds and up to 30 seconds) depending on how much time the device needs to get the correct forehead temperature.

NOTE
This mode shows actual, unadjusted surface temperatures, which are different from body temperature.

5. After measurement:

(1) Power off: Device will automatically shut off to extend battery life if left idle for more than 1 minute. The device can only be powered off automatically. (In surface mode, you can manually turn the power off by pressing ON/MEM” button for 3 seconds.)
(2) Clean the probe after each use to ensure accurate readings and avoid cross contamination. (See the section on “Care & Maintenance” for details.)

NOTES

  • This thermometer has been designed for everyday use. It’s not meant to replace a visit to the doctor. Please also remember to compare the measurement result to your regular body temperature. Please consult with doctor if you have health concerns.
  • Holding the thermometer too long may cause a higher ambient temperature reading of the probe. This could make the body temperature measurement lower than usual.

Troubleshooting

CAUTION
Do not open this device. If you cannot fix the problem using the troubleshooting instructions, contact the dealer or customer service.

Care & Maintenance

  • After measurement, please use a cotton swab with alcohol (70% concentration) to clean the lens (on the inside of the probe).
