INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing this Forehead Infrared Thermometer. Please
read this instruction manual completely before using your unit to
ensure safe use, accurate results and long life of the thermometer.
This product is intended for household use; this product is not
intended to diagnose or treat any health problem or disease and
should not be used as a substitute for the consultation and advice of a
physician or other medical professional. Thermometers should only be
used under the supervision of an adult.
The infrared technology used in this thermometer takes the
temperature of people and objects without any physical contact
between the thermometer and the person or object. The thermometer
measures body temperature from approximately 0.5” – 1” from
the forehead, making it less invasive and threatening than other
thermometers, as well as more sanitary. It can even be used when the
patient is sleeping. This thermometer also measures the temperature
of objects and liquids, making it useful for determining if a baby’s milk
or bathwater is ready.
All people and objects emit infrared energy. The Touch Free Infrared
Thermometer measures that energy, taking 512 readings in one
second and converting those data to a single peak temperature, which
appears on the display. With proper care, your new thermometer
will provide your entire family with many years of safe, accurate and
comfortable temperature readings.

BODY TEMPERATURE AND FEVER
Body temperature can vary from 97°F(36.1°C) and 99°F(37.2°C) and
still be considered normal. The medically accepted ‘normal’ body
temperature is 98.6°F(37°C). Body temperature is commonly lower
upon waking than at any point during the rest of an individual’s active
hours.
A fever is defined as a body temperature that is elevated above the
normal for that person. It is important to determine what is normal
for an individual before determining if a fever is present. Tracking an
individual’s temperature on a consistent basis, at the same body site
and at the same time every day will help determine an individual’s
normal temperature.
TIPS FOR MEASURING
BODY TEMPERATURE
• Wait at least one minute between consecutive readings, to ensure
accuracy.
• Attempting to take temperature readings from sites on the body
other than the forehead may produce inaccurate results.
• The patient should remain still while the reading is being taken.
• If “Lo,” “Hi,” “Err,” or another error message appears, see the
Troubleshooting section of this manual for instructions on how to
resolve the problem.
• Infrared forehead temperature readings are equivalent to oral
temperature readings.
• Readings taken while asleep should not be compared directly to
readings taken while awake, as body temperature while asleep is
typically lower.
• Do not take body temperature readings within 30 minutes of being
outdoors, exercising or bathing.
• Level of activity, time of day, and other factors may affect body
temperature. Keep records of your individual body temperature to
use as a reference when judging a fever.

SWITCHING BETWEEN ºF / ºC
Your thermometer can display results in either
degrees Fahrenheit (°F) or degrees Celsius (°C).
To switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius, while
the unit is on press and hold both the MEM
and the MODE buttons until the °F icon on the
display switches to the °C icon, or vise versa, at
which time the mode has been changed and you
may release the buttons.

The unit will beep each time the MEM button
is pushed as the measurements are reviewed.
If the device is in ‘Night’ mode, the unit will
not emit a beep.
3. Press and release the MEM button scroll
through the readings from newest to oldest.
The index number in the upper left of the
display indicates the sequential number of the
stored reading on the screen, Fig. 2.

REPLACING BATTERY
When the battery power becomes low, the low battery
symbol will appear on the display. The thermometer can still
be used during this time, but the batteries should be replaced as soon
as possible.
If the batteries run out completely, “Lo” will be displayed along with
the low battery symbol. In this case, the batteries will need to be
replaced before using the thermometer again.
The batteries used in the Touch Free Infrared Thermometer are two
AAA batteries. Either rechargeable or non-rechargeable batteries can
be used in the thermometer. To replace the batteries, follow these
steps:
1. Slide the battery cover
off.
2. Carefully remove the
old batteries. Do not
use a metal-pointed
tool.
3. Insert the new batteries,
ensuring that the
positive and negative
ends are aligned
correctly.
4. Replace the battery
cover.
5. Dispose of the
expired batteries in
accordance with local
environmental policies.

CARE AND SAFETY INFORMATION
Improper care or use of your thermometer may result in injury,
damage to the unit or inaccurate readings, which can lead to a
misdiagnosed fever. Following these instructions will ensure the
thermometer’s accuracy and long life.
• Never allow the thermometer to be used without adult supervision.
• The infrared technology used in this thermometer is safe and is not
harmful in any way. However, we recommend avoiding looking
into the lens during use.
• Clean the lens before and after each use.
• Do not touch the lens with fingers.
• Dropping the thermometer or causing other heavy impact may
damage it.
• Do not store the thermometer in direct sunlight, dusty or humid
environments, or extreme temperatures.
• Do not disassemble the thermometer or attempt to repair it.
• If a reading cannot be taken, and the troubleshooting steps do not
fix the problem, the thermometer must be replaced.
14 • ENGLISH
CLEANING AND STORAGE
The lens should be cleaned before and after each use, to eliminate
dirt and fingerprints and ensure the accuracy of your readings. Proper
storage will prevent degradation and damage to the unit.
CLEANING:
• An alcohol swab, or a soft cotton cloth
moistened with 70% isopropyl alcohol, should
be used to gently cleanse the lens. Do not use
water to wash the thermometer.
• The body of the thermometer can be cleaned
with a soft, dry cloth.
• Never use a paper towel to clean the probe tip,
as it may scratch the lens.
• Do not immerse the thermometer or allow
liquid to enter the casing.
• Do not use cleaning agents other than alcohol
to clean the thermometer; abrasives, thinners
or gasoline will damage the unit.
STORAGE:
• Store the unit in an area away from sunlight, dust and humidity.
• Protect the thermometer from mechanical shock or heavy impact.
• Avoid extended exposure to extreme temperatures. The
thermometer should be stored in an environment between -4°F
