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. 4 • ENGLISH 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.

The display will briefly show the mode, two dashes and a left facing arrow, Fig. 3. The thermometer will emit a single beep and the temperature reading will be displayed, Fig. 4. Fig. 3 5. If the temperature measurement is below 100.4° F, a happy face will be appear next to the reading. If the reading is 100.4° F or above, a sad face will be displayed and the red light will illuminate just below the display. 6. After 30-seconds of non-use, the thermometer will automatically beep and shut off. Fig. 4 ENGLISH • 9 MEASURING OBJECT/LIQUID TEMPERATURE The Touch Free Infrared Thermometer can measure objects and liquids from 32°F to 212°F (0°C - 100°C). To measure the temperature of an object or liquid using your Touch Free Infrared Thermometer, follow these steps: NOTE: See page 8 of this manual for more information on the Definition and Use of the Measurement Modes. Fig. 1 1. Press the MEASURE button to turn the thermometer on. The unit will run a selftest and all symbols on the display will momentarily appear, Fig. 1. 2.

To toggle between modes: 1. Press the MEASURE button to turn the thermometer on. The device will default to the last mode used. 2. Press and release the MODE button to toggle through the four measurement options. 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. ENGLISH • 11 RECALLING AND CLEARING READINGS Your Forehead Infrared Thermometer automatically stores the last 30 readings taken. To view the readings stored in memory, follow these steps: 1. Press the MEASURE button to turn the thermometer on. 2. Press the Memory button (marked, “MEM”) to recall the most recent measurement, Fig. 1. Fig. 1 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. Fig. 2 After 30 measurements have been stored in the memory, the oldest reading will be automatically deleted. To clear all records from the memory, hold the MEM button down until you hear a beep and two dashes appear on the display, Fig 3. 12 • ENGLISH Fig. 3 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. ENGLISH • 13 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 and 122°F (-20°C—50°C), and with relative humidity of 95% or lower. • Remove the batteries during extended storage. ENGLISH • 15 TROUBLE SHOOTING Performance may be degraded should one or more of the following occur: • Operation outside stated temperature and humidity range • Storage outside state temperature and humidity range • Mechanical shock • Patient temperature is below ambient temperature The following chart indicates error messages that may appear on your display, why they appear, and how you may solve the problem.
