BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Cautions and Warnings
• As with any thermometer, proper technique is
crucial to obtaining accurate temperature
readings. Please read this manual thoroughly
and carefully before using.
• Always operate the thermometer in an operating
temperature range 16°C to 40°C (60.8°F to 104°F),
and relative humidity less than 95%.
• Always store the thermometer in a cool and dry
place -20°C to 50°C (-4°F to 122°F) and relative
humidity less than 95%.
• Avoid direct sunlight.
• Avoid dropping the thermometer, if it happens
and you think the thermometer may be damaged,
please contact customer services immediately.
• Do not touch the lens.
• Do not disassemble the thermometer.
• Basic safety precautions should always be
observed, especially when the thermometer is
used on or near children and disabled persons.
• This thermometer is not intended to substitute
for a consultation with your physician.
• This thermometer and the subject must remain in
a stable environment for at least 30 minutes
before measuring the temperature.
• When the measured temperature falls within the
fever temperature range of ≥37.5°C (99.5°F) and
<43°C (109.4°F), as indicated by the red LED
on display, please consult with your physician
immediately.

Restrictions of Use
This thermometer is clinically proven to produce
accurate temperature measurements. However,
please be advised that the accuracy cannot be
ensured when the thermometer is not clean.
Check that the probe is clean before taking a
measurement.
Intended Use
nu-beca No Touch Thermometer is intended for
the intermittent measurement and monitoring
of human body temperature from forehead
measurement at home. A control measurement
using a conventional thermometer is recommended
in the following cases: 1. If the reading is surprisingly
low, 2. For new-born infants up to 100 days old, 3.
For children under three years of age who have a
weakened immune system or who react
unusually in the presence or absence of fever.
How does it work
The thermometer measures the infrared heat
generated by the surface of the skin over the vessel
and its surrounding tissue. The thermometer then
converts it into a temperature value.
NOTE: The thermometer does not emit any infrared signal.
4
Highlighted Features
• Non-contact measurement that does not require
probe cover, there by saving cost of replacement.
• Automatically powers off if left idle for 30 seconds.
• Memory function allows you to recall up to 20
previous results.
• Easy to read LCD with white backlight in a dark
environment.
• Color visible indication of alarm (red) and
measurement in progress (blue).
• Auto-sense measurement within 2 cm.

PERFORM THE TEST
Using the Device
As a Body Measurement Thermometer
1. Press Start button to turn on
the thermometer first.
2. Press the
button to
select Body mode.
The temperature unit flashes.
3. Move the probe close
to the forehead.
Make sure the probe is flat and
close to the forehead, not at
an angle. Perform a forehead
measurement with a distance
within 2 cm. The meter will take
measurement automatically
when the blue LED blinks.
4. Read the result.
The measurement result will be
done in 3 seconds. The reading
is shown together with green
LED and three short beeps.
9
NOTE:
•As the forehead measurement temperature is likely to be
affected by sweat, oil and the surroundings, the reading shall
be taken as a reference only.
•If the probe is placed at an angle close to the forehead
measurement, the reading will be affected by surrounding
temperature. Babies’ skin reacts very quickly to the ambient
temperature. Therefore, do not take their temperature with
the thermometer during or after breastfeeding, because the
skin temperature may then be lower than the internal body
temperature.
•If the reading is < 32°C (89.6°F), the display will show together
with red LED and three short beeps.
• If the reading is ≥ 37.5 °C (99.5°F) and < 43°C (109.4°F), the
display will show together with red LED and ten short beeps.
•The thermometer will automatically turn off if left idle
for 30 seconds.
As an Object Measurement Thermometer
1. Press Start button to turn on
the thermometer first.
2. Press the
button to
select Object mode.
The temperature unit flashes.
3. Move the probe close
to the object.
Make sure the probe is flat
and close to the object, not at
an angle. Perform an object
measurement with a distance
within 2 cm.

MAINTENANCE
Care & Cleaning
• The probe is not waterproof. Please wipe with a
clean and dry cotton swab to clean the probe on
the inside.
•The body of the thermometer is not waterresistant. Never put the thermometer under a
running tap or submerge it into water. Use a
soft and dry cloth to clean it. Do not use abrasive
cleaners.

is free from dust and away from direct sunlight.
13
Replacing the Battery
The thermometer comes with two 1.5 V AAA alkaline
batteries. The meter will display “
“ to alert
you when the meter power is getting low, please
follow the steps below to replace new batteries
immediately.
1. Remove the battery cover as
the arrow direction accordingly.
2. Remove the old batteries and
replace with two 1.5 V AAA size
alkaline batteries.
Positive ( + ) and Negative ( - ) are
displayed on the back of battery cover.
3. Close the battery cover.
NOTE:
1. Although the thermometer works when “
“ appears, we
still recommend that you change the batteries to obtain an
accurate result.
2. Remove the batteries if stored for a long period of time.
3. The batteries should be kept away out of child’s reach.
If they are swallowed, promptly see a doctor for help.

DETAILED INFORMATION
About Normal Body Temperature & Fever
The temperature in the forehead and temple area
differs from the internal temperature, which is taken
orally or rectally. Vasoconstriction, an effect which
constricts the blood vessels and cools the skin, can
occur during the early stages of a fever. In this case,
the temperature measured by the nu-beca No Touch
Forehead Thermometer may be unusually low. If
the measurement therefore does not match the
patient’s own perception or is unusually low, repeat
the measurement every 15 minutes. As a reference,
you can also measure the internal body temperature
using a conventional oral or rectal thermometer.
Body temperature can vary from one individual/
person to the next. It also varies by location on
the body and time of day. Table 1 shows the
statistical normal ranges from different sites.
Please keep in mind that temperatures measured
from different sites, even at the same time, should
not be directly compared. Fever indicates that
the body temperature is higher than normal. This
symptom may be caused by infection, overdressing
or immunization. Some people may not experience
fever even when they are ill. These include, but
are not limited to, infants younger than 3 months
old, persons with compromised immune systems,
persons taking antibiotics, steroids or antipyretics
(aspirin, ibuprofen, acetaminophen), or persons
with certain chronic illnesses. Please consult your
physician when you feel ill even if you do not have
fever.
