CAUTIONS
1. THIS IS NOT AN EAR THERMOMETER Temperature may
only be taken by 3 methods: oral, underarm, and rectal.
2. For hygienic purposes, Omron recommends applying a probe
cover during each use. (Probe covers sold separately)
3. Use ONLY OMRON probe cover (model 600PROBECAN)
at any of the three stated measurement sites.
4. Do not use this thermometer near combustible agents.
5. Never use an abrasive cleanser.
6. THE THERMOMETER IS NOT WATER RESISTANT!
7. Store in a cool, dry place at room temperature that
is not in direct sunlight.
8. When storing use the Protective Display Cover to reduce
the chance of scratching the display screen and protect
the sensor tip from damage.

INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the 3-Way Instant Thermometer.
The 3-Way Instant Thermometer is based on the new patented
R.A.T.E.™ (Rapid, Active, Temperature, Establishment)
technology. R.A.T.E.™ technology enables accurate temperature
measurement in 4-6 seconds typically in the oral, rectal,
or under arm modes when ambient temperature is between
50°F and 93.2°F (10°C and 34°C).
How does it work?
R.A.T.E.™ measures heat flow from blood vessels to the
skin, converting it instantly to a readable body temperature.
It is clinically proven accurate. The 3-Way Instant Thermometer
can easily and safely be used by all ages. There is no fear
of broken glass or mercury poisoning that can occur
with glass thermometers.
Temperature 3-Ways?
The three traditional ways to take a temperature; oral, underarm
and rectal are now easier, safer, and faster by using the 3-Way
Instant Thermometer. In comparison, glass thermometers can
take as long as 3 minutes to achieve a reading and can break
which could cause mercury poisoning. Digital thermometers
can range from 1 to 2 minutes. Too long to wait when a child
is screaming. You want to take a quick temperature...with the
speed nearly as quick as an ear thermometer and with the
accuracy of the glass thermometer. That is the Omron 3-Way
Instant Thermometer.

HOW TO TAKE A MEASUREMENT
General Instructions
A. Remain still and quiet during measurement.
B. Accuracy of reading depends on the proper placement
of the thermometer.
C. Apply a new probe cover before each use.
D. Thermometer is to be turned off before attempting
to repeat process.There should be one minute intervals
between taking temperature.
E. The thermometer will automatically shut off in one
minute after use.
Operation Instructions
1. Place the probe cover on the probe so that it fits snug
from the probe tip to the top of the display.
Note: Improper application of probe cover may
cause inaccurate reading.
2. Press the ON/Off button until you hear one beep.
All symbols and number segments will be displayed.
3. The result of previous reading will be displayed for
2 seconds. The “hourglass” symbol indicates that the
thermometer is preparing for use.
4. Do not attempt to take temperature until the “hourglass”
symbol disappears in 5-10 seconds and two beeps
are heard. This indicates that the thermometer
is ready for use.
5. To change the selected measurement method, simply
push the mode selecting button. The measurement
method will be indicated on the display by an arrow
pointing at the chosen measurement method.

HOW TO TAKE A MEASUREMENT
Oral Method:
A. Place the probe under the tongue next
to the lower molar teeth.
B. Gently press the probe downward with
the tongue and close mouth.
Axillary (underarm) Method:
A. Make sure the armpit had been closed.
B. Place probe in a clean dry armpit
area with clothing removed in the
arm and chest area where the
thermometer will function.
C. Place probe into armpit area
pointing upward direction assuring
it is completely surrounded by skin.
D. Gently press the probe
in a upward motion.
E. Gently hold arm close to body to assure
proper placement and accurate function.
Rectal Method:
A. It is recommended to use a probe cover lubricated with
water soluble jelly.
B. Gently slide the sensor tip of the thermometer no more
than 1/2” (1.2 cm) into the rectum. DO NOT USE IF
ANY RESISTANCE IS NOTED. Remove and repeat this
step or take a measurement at an alternate site.
6. A running circle will appear indicating that measurement
is in progress.
7. Temperature will be displayed after a long beep is heard.
8. Press the ON/OFF button to turn the thermometer off.

HOW TO TAKE MEASUREMENT
Changing Scale Between (C°) and (F°).
The Thermometer can display temperature in either Centigrade
or Fahrenheit. To change the scale, follow the instructions below:
1. Start with the thermometer
turned off.
2. Simultaneously, press and hold the
mode and the on/off buttons until
a “Beep” is heard. Release buttons
after the beep. The display will first
show the previously used scale and
then the new one.
3. When the “hourglass” symbol
disappears, the thermometer
is ready to measure by the
selected measurement scale.
NOTE: If thermometer is turned off before a measurement is taken after the scale
change, the scale will revert to the one last used.
Operation in a Warm Environment
In a warm environment (ambient temperature over 34°C / 93.2°F), the
thermometer may measure in a different operation mode (monitoring mode).
In that case, please follow the instruction below.
1. Following the thermometer premeasurement preparation if you see
a temperature value on the display, instead of a running circle, the
thermometer is operating in the monitoring mode.
2. The “body site” icon and the “C° or F°” indicator will begin to blink
and a short beep will be heard every 10 seconds to indicate that the
measurement is in progress.
3. When a long beep is heard, the process is complete and the temperature
will be displayed in “C” or “F”.
NOTE: A measurement by the monitoring mode typically takes 2 minutes.

DISPLAY MESSAGES
The thermometer has been designed to display feedback messages
to ensure proper usage and accurate measurement. In the event
of a malfunction or incorrect measurement, the following
messages will be displayed:
Displayed
Cause
The measured temperature is below 95°F (35°C)
or above 107.6°F (42°C).
Instructions
1. Check correlation between the selected mode icon
and the actual measurement location used.
