Unisar BR101 User's Manual

INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the
BébéSounds® Ear Thermometer. This
thermometer will enable you to take an
accurate temperature in just one second.
The ear thermometer is a delicate electronic
device designed to measure body temperature. This thermometer provides you with
accurate and reliable temperature readings
by detecting infrared heat from the
eardrum. The eardrum reflects the body’s
temperature because it shares blood vessels
with the part of the brain that controls body
temperature.
Temperature readings from an ear
thermometer are considered to be as
accurate as those taken orally. Please keep
in mind that body temperature will differ
based on a person’s age and the time of day
when it is taken. Temperature will also
vary from ear to ear. Therefore, for best
results, temperature should be taken from
the same ear whenever possible.
Use of this ear thermometer should not
replace a visit to your doctor. It is recommended that you advise your doctor any
time a temperature is above 100°F/37.8°C.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
1. Press and realease the
POWER/SCAN button
and the system will start
its self-testing cycle
(See Fig. 1).
2. Once the self-testing is
completed, the display
will show the last temperature recorded. (See Fig.
2). This indicates that the
thermometer is ready for
you to use.
3. Press the POWER/SCAN
button without releasing
it so it will perform the
automatic scanning
sequences. The word Lo
may appear indicating
the temperature
registering is lower than
93.2°F/34°C (See Fig. 3).

into the ear to allow the
probe tip to continuously
scan the ear canal. This
will ensure an accurate
temperature measurement
(See Fig. 4). After one
second release the
POWER/SCAN button
for a temperature reading.
5. A beep will indicate the
end of the temperature
measurement. (See Fig. 5).
Remove thermometer from
ear canal and view the
temperature.
Figure 5
6. To change the reading from Celsius to
Fahrenheit, press the POWER/SCAN
button without releasing it and then
press the MEM button.
7. A smiling face will
appear in the display to
indicate a temperature
lower than 100.4°F/38°C
4. Keeping the POWER/SCAN button
depressed, insert the probe into the ear
canal. The probe must be inserted well

while a frowning face
accompanied by one
long and two short beeps
will indicate a
temperature higher than
100.4°F/38°C
(See Figs. 6 & 7).
Figure 7
8. The thermometer’s
temperature range is
Figure 8
between 93.2°- 109.4°F
and 34°- 43°C. A Lo
reading appears when
the temperature measured
Figure 9
is lower than 93.2°F/34°C,
while a Hi reading appears when the
temperature measured is higher than
109.4°F/43°C (See Figs. 8 & 9).
9. If the ambient temperature
is outside the thermometer’s range (see Technical
Specifications), “Err” will
appear in the display
(see Fig. 10).
10. The Ear Thermometer
stores and recalls the last
10 temperature readings.
To recall prior readings
8
simply press the MEM button. The
memory symbol (top left corner), the
number of the reading and the temperature reading will appear on the display
(See Fig. 11).
11. To get the most precise temperature
reading wait five seconds before taking
a temperature again.
12. The temperature will vary between both
ears so try to take the temperature from
the same ear each time.

CARE AND CLEANING
1. The ear thermometer is a delicate
electronic device. Although the probe
is waterproof, the body of the
thermometer is not. Therefore, to ensure
proper functioning, avoid direct contact
of the body of the thermometer with
water or other liquids.
2. Clean the probe with a soft cloth
moistened with either water or alcohol.
Clean the body of the thermometer with
a soft dry cloth. Never use an abrasive.
3. Avoid touching the probe with your
fingers.
4. Do not expose the thermometer to direct
sunlight.
5. Keep out of the reach of children and in
the storage case when not in use.
The optimal storage temperature is
between 4°~122°F/-20°~50°C.
6. The ear thermometer is designed for
taking temperatures from the ear canal
only. Do not use it to take rectal, oral,
or armpit temperatures.
7. Do not disassemble the thermometer.
11
NOTE: According to extensive clinical
examinations, the temperature readings
given by an ear thermometer are equivalent
to those given by its oral counterparts.
Use of this ear thermometer should not
replace a visit to your doctor.
TROUBLESHOOTING
1. Consistent low temperature readings
a. The probe is not positioned properly in
the ear canal. The tip of the probe must
be snug and fully seated against the
opening of the ear canal. Failure to
properly position the probe may lead to
a low temperature reading.
b. The waterproof lens is dirty. Clean the
lens with a soft cloth moistened with
water or alcohol.
2. The measurement is out of the range
of the ear thermometer
a. Switch the ear thermometer on before
positioning it in the ear. Please
properly position the ear thermometer
in the ear canal and then repeat the
measurement.
3. Low battery warning
a. Battery needs to be replaced.
See Battery Installation section of the
manual.
