Dear Customers
Congratulations on purchasing a state-of-the-art A&D ear thermometer,
one of the most advanced thermometers available today.
We recommend that you read through this manual carefully before
using the device for the first time.
Preliminary Remarks
This device conforms to the European Directive 93/42 EEC for Medical
mark of conformity.
Products. This is made evident by the
(0366: The reference number to the involved notified body)
Environment for use
The device is for use indoors.
Precautions
Precision components are used in the construction of the thermometer.
Extremes in temperature, humidity, direct sunlight, shock or dust should be
avoided.
The thermometer is not water resistant. Prevent rain, sweat and water
from soiling the thermometer.
Measurements may be distorted if the thermometer is used close to
televisions, microwave ovens, cellular telephones, X-ray or other devices
with strong electrical fields.
Keep the thermometer out of reach of children.
To ensure accuracy, keep the lens of the probe clean.
No probe cover is required when using the thermometer. For sanitary
purposes, clean the probe each time after use. Use a cotton swab or a
soft cloth moistened with alcohol. Do not allow the alcohol to get into the
thermometer. Allow several minutes of drying time before reuse.
Clean the exterior of the thermometer with a soft, clean cloth. Do not use
abrasive cleansers or submerge in water or other liquids.
Used equipment, parts and batteries are not to be treated as ordinary
household waste, and must be disposed of according to the applicable
local regulations.

Features
The UT-601 Ear Thermometer is a multi-use thermometer. It detects body
temperature from the ear canal. It can also detect the temperature of solids,
liquids or air in a fast and non-contact manner.
The thermometer measures the infrared heat generated by the eardrum or
other objects. Ear temperature accurately reflects core body temperature
since the eardrum shares blood supply with the temperature control center in
the brain (the hypothalamus).
To ensure accuracy, the thermometer scans continuously while the On/Scan
button is being pressed and displays the highest temperature.
0 °C to 100 °C (32 °F to 212 °F) detection
The display temperature range is from 0 °C to 100 °C.
So, besides measuring body temperature from the ear canal, the
thermometer can be used in various ways. Examples of use are:
To measure the temperature of milk or baby bath water.
To measure the temperature of food or soup.
To measure the temperature of solids, liquids or air.
°C or °F can be selected.
Easy one button operation
No probe cover is required during measurement. Wipe the probe clean
with a soft cloth moistened with alcohol after use.
The last reading is displayed after power on.
Continuous scanning to ensure accuracy
The thermometer scans continuously while the On/Scan button is being
pressed and displays the highest temperature.
Automatic power-shut off function
The thermometer will turn off automatically after 30 seconds of no
operation or after continuously pressing the On/Scan button for 30
seconds.

Using the Thermometer
Installing / Changing the Batteries
1. Use a small pointed object such as a
ballpoint pen to press the battery cover
latch and release the latch.
2. Remove the battery cover by pushing the
sides of the cover upward while pressing
the battery cover latch.
3. Insert two LR44 button batteries. Ensure
that the plus poles are positioned upward
as indicated by the marking on the battery
compartment.
4. Replace the battery cover.
After installing the batteries, press the
On/Scan button to check if all the display
segments appear correctly.
If not, check the batteries and the poles.
CAUTION
Insert the batteries as indicated into the battery compartment. If not, the
device will not work.
When
(Low battery mark) appears on the display, it indicates that the
battery is low. At this stage, measurement is still possible.
When
(Low battery mark) flashes on the display, replace both
batteries with new ones. Do not mix old and new batteries. It may shorten
the battery life, or cause the device to malfunction.
Battery life varies with the ambient temperature and may be shorter at low
temperatures.
Use the specified batteries only. The batteries provided with the device
are for testing monitor performance and may have a limited life.
Remove the batteries if the device is not to be used for a long time.
The batteries may leak and cause a malfunction.

4. Press the On/Scan button for one measurement.
Hold the button for a continuous scan to get the highest temperature
5. Release the On/Scan button. A long beep sounds to indicate completion
of the temperature measurement. Read the value.
Measuring Air Temperature
Note: The operating ambient temperature is 5 °C to 40 °C.
1. Press the On/Scan button to turn the thermometer on. All the display
segments appear.
2. The last reading stored in MEMORY appears and a short beep sounds to
indicate that the thermometer is ready to scan.
3. Aim the probe toward any surrounding space with no objects nearby and

CAUTION
Do not measure the temperature of a metal. It will give
a low reading.
Do not immerse the thermometer into fluid. It will
damage the lens of the probe.
Do not expose the thermometer to flame or high
temperatures. It will damage the lens of the probe.
