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 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 backlight on display,
please consult with your physician immediately.
8
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 detecting sensor is clean before
taking a measurement.
Intended Use
FORA Diamond NEXUS MINI 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.
9
Highlighted Features
● Non-contact measurement that does not require
detecting sensor cover, there by saving cost of
replacement.
● Automatically power off if left idle for 25 seconds and the
backlight switch off in first 5 seconds.
● Memory function allows you to store 20 most recent
body mode temperature results.
● Easy to read LCD with white backlight in a dark
environment.
● Color visible indication of alarm (red) and normal reading
(green).
● Distance between device and forehead measurement
within 5 cm.

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 FORA Diamond NEXUS MINI
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 next. It also varies by location on the body and time
of day. Below 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.

PERFORM THE TEST
Using the Device
As a Body Measurement Thermometer
1. Press On/Scan button for less
than 2 seconds to turn on the
thermometer first and enter into
body mode. The full display will be
showed on the meter for 2 seconds.
2. The last memory displays for 2
seconds.
3. When °C or °F blinks,
the device is standby for
measurement.
The temperature unit flashes.
4. Move the detecting sensor
close to the forehead.
Make sure the detecting sensor is
flat and close to the forehead, not
at an angle. Perform a forehead
measurement with a distance
within 5 cm. Press On/Scan button
for up to 3 seconds, the meter will
take measurement.
5. Read the result.
The measurement result will be done
once releasing the button. The reading
is shown together with green backlight
and three short beeps.
17
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 detecting sensor 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 FORA Diamond NEXUS MINI 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 L together with red backlight and three short
beeps.
• If the reading is ≥ 32°C (89.6°F) and < 37.5 °C
(99.5°F), the display will show together with green
backlight 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
backlight and ten short beeps.
• If the reading is ≥ 43°C (109.4°F), the display will
show H together with red backlight and ten short
beeps.
• The interval for the next measurement should be 3
seconds.
• Device is standby for another measurement with last
readings stays on the display, °C or °F is blinking.
The device cannot do another measurement during
previous measurement shows on the display with
backlight that lasts for 5 sec.
• The thermometer will automatically turn off if left idle
for 25 seconds and the backlight switch off in first 5
seconds.
18
As an Object Measurement Thermometer
1. Press On/Scan button for 2~5
seconds to turn on the
thermometer first and enter into

seconds.
2. The last memory displays for 2
seconds.
3. When °C or °F blinks, the
device is standby for measurement.
The temperature unit flashes.
4. Move the detecting sensor
close to the object.

flat and close to the object, not at
an angle. Perform an object
measurement with a distance
within 5 cm. Press On/Scan button
for up to 5 seconds, the meter will
take measurement.
5. Read the result.
The measurement result will be done
once releasing the button. The reading
is shown together with green backlight
and three short beeps.
19

the display will show together with green backlight
and three short beeps.
• If the reading is ≥ 100°C (212°F), the display will
show H together with red backlight and ten short
beeps.
• The interval for the next measurement should be 3
seconds.
• Device is standby for another measurement with last
readings stays on the display, °C or °F is blinking.
