Features of Dual Mode Infrared Thermometer
INV-EF100
The INV-EF100 thermometer is able to measure both forehead and ear
temperatures by detecting the infrared heat emitted by the respective
areas. The forehead mode is activated by pressing the F1 button and the
eardrum mode is activated by pressing the F2 button.
Convenient and easy to use
• Easy mode of operation – Take measurement with the press of a
button
• Can be used anytime – even when your child is asleep
• Obtain reading faster than an oral thermometer and more comfortable
than a rectal thermometer
• Ergonomic design
• Color coded display for fever detection
Accurate and quick
Utilize the latest infrared technology – accurate, precise and instant
readings.
Safe and hygienic
• Unlike traditional thermometers, there is no glass or mercury that
could pose as a potential health hazard. The thermometer is made up
of ABS and TPR plastics, an infrared sensor, an infrared temperature
measuring element, a microcomputer controlled circuit and a LCD
screen.
• BPA and latex free.
Memory Recall
Has a Memory Mode that can recall 20 previous readings to track
changes in temperature.
Convenient Fever warning
When the temperature exceeds 99.5°F/37.5°C, the thermometer will
warn the user that he/she may have a fever by 7 rapid short beeps and a
flickering reading with a red backlit on the LCD screen for 3 seconds. (For
normal body temperature, the signal is a long beep with a green backlit.)
1
Operating principle
The infrared temperature sensor detects infrared energy emitted by the
eardrum. A built-in lens focuses the collected energy, which is then
converted into a temperature reading by the thermopiles and
measurement circuits.
2.
Warnings and Precautions
This product is not intended to substitute advice from a physician,
pharmacist, or other licensed health-care professional. You should
not use this product for self-diagnosis or for treating a health
problem. Contact your health-care provider immediately if you
suspect that you have a medical problem.
• Do not use the thermometer for purposes not specified in this User
Manual. Follow the instructions stated herein and operate the
thermometer carefully when measuring children's temperature.
• Do not use the thermometer if any part, especially the sensor, shows
any sign of damage. Do not attempt to repair the thermometer. Please
contact your distributor.
• The thermometer is not designed to be used for newborn babies.
Please consult with a doctor before using the thermometer on a
newborn.
• The device is not a continuous monitoring device.
• Do not use the thermometer under an ambient temperature higher
than 40.0°C (104.0°F) or lower than 10.0°C (50.0°F), which is beyond
the operating temperature range of the thermometer.
2
• The thermometer is not waterproof. Do not immerse in water or other
liquids. For cleaning and disinfecting, please follow instructions in the
‘Care and Cleaning’ section.
• Certain parts of the thermometer are lined precisely in order to
perform properly. Do not drop the thermometer or twist the
thermometer sensor. The thermometer is not designed to withstand
intense impact or vibration.
• The thermometer is not a toy. Please keep out of children’s reach.
• Do not touch the tip of the thermometer probe. This may damage
the infrared sensor inside.
3.
Care and Cleaning
CAUTION! The thermometer sensor is extremely sensitive. The
sensor lens has to be perfectly clean to ensure accurate readings.
CAUTION! Any debris and/or facial oil on the sensor lens will
prevent an accurate measurement. Always check the sensor before
use. The lens should be reflective and gleaming. If it looks dull and
lackluster, please clean the lens before use.
• To clean the lens, gently swab the surface with a cotton swab
moistened with rubbing alcohol (70% Isopropyl). Do not exert too much
pressure as it may damage the delicate sensor.
• Wait for the alcohol to evaporate completely before using the
thermometer. This may take about 5-10 minutes. Any residual alcohol
will prevent accurate readings.
• To clean the thermometer body and display, wipe with a soft cloth
slightly moistened with water or rubbing alcohol. Allow to air dry or
gently dry with a piece of tissue paper.
Temperature taking tips for accurate measurement
• Always start with a clean probe and sensor to maintain accuracy and
hygiene.
3
• Make sure that both user and thermometer have stayed in
steady-state room condition for at least 30 minutes. Recent exposure
to hot or cold temperatures will impact your reading.
• If taking multiple readings, it is advised to wait at least 10 seconds
between readings. The thermometer is very sensitive to small
changes in temperature. Repeated use with no pause may impact
your reading.
• Before taking forehead measurement, remove hair, sweat, debris/oil.
• Before taking eardrum measurement, make sure that the ear canal is
free from obstructions or excess earwax build-up.
• As with any thermometer, proper technique is critical to
obtaining accurate measurements. Failure to follow instructions
will result in inaccurate measurements.
• Normal body temperature is a range and varies by site. Therefore,
measurements from forehead and eardrum should not be
compared directly.
• In general, an ear temperature is usually 0.5-1°F (0.3-0.6°C) higher
than an oral temperature, whereas a forehead temperature is usually
0.5-1°F (0.3-0.6°C) lower than an oral temperature. Therefore, it is
NORMAL to get 1-2°F (0.6-1.2°C) difference between an ear
measurement versus a forehead measurement. This is NOT due to
the inaccuracy of the thermometer.
●Battery Installation:
1. Slide the battery cover off along the marked direction.
2. Put two AAA batteries into the battery compartment according to the
stated polarities.
3. Slide the battery cover horizontally until it snaps back in place.
Notes:
☆ Prior to using the thermometer for the first time, pull the plastic tab off
the battery, if any.
☆ Batteries should be installed according to the stated polarities.
4
Otherwise, the device bracket might be damaged.
☆ Please remove the batteries if you will not be using the thermometer
for an extended period of time.

Note on Body Temperature
• The normal body temperature is a range.
• The normal range varies from person to person and can fluctuate
throughout the day.
• The normal range also varies by body site. Therefore, measurements
from different sites should not be compared directly.
To determine if an individual is experiencing an elevated body
temperature and/or having a fever, it is critical to know the individual’s
normal body temperature when he/she is well. Take multiple readings to
obtain the normal body temperature range and note the specific body site
measured, for example: forehead or eardrum temperature.
Body Site
Forehead
Eardrum

* The normal body temperature range varies slightly with age and gender.
Generally, newborns or children have higher body temperatures than
adults, and adults have higher body temperatures than the elderly.
Women's body temperatures are approximately 0.3°C (0.5 °F) higher
than men's.

Normal body temperature
fluctuates throughout the day
and is also affected by external
factors. The body temperature
of an individual is the lowest
between 2:00 a.m. and 4:00
a.m. and the highest between
2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. An
individual's body temperature
typically changes by less than
1°C (1.8 °F) each day.

For children older than 1 year old, gently pull the ear up to ensure that the
7
ear canal is straight (See Figure 1). Position the ear probe carefully so
that it is aligned with the eardrum to ensure accurate measurement
readings. This applies to adults as well.
For children younger than 1 year old, gently pull the ear straight back to
ensure that the ear canal is straight (see Figure 2).
Figure 2
In order to avoid inaccuracy:
1. The sensor is extremely sensitive. Any debris and/or grease on the
sensor lens might prevent an accurate measurement. For best result,
please check and clean the lens regularly. Please note that the
sensor lens can look deceptively “clean” when it is not. The lens
of a clean sensor should be reflective and gleaming. If it looks
dull and lackluster, then it is dirty. Please clean the lens with a
cotton swab moistened with alcohol and wait 5-10 mins for the
alcohol to completely evaporate before using the thermometer.
2. Please use the thermometer indoor or in an environment where there
is no strong air draft.
3. Do not move during measurement.
4. Make sure there isn’t any sweat, water or condensation on the
forehead.
5. If the thermometer is transferred from an environment where the
ambient temperature might be different, please wait at least 10
minutes and follow rule number 2 before using the thermometer.
6. Do not hold the thermometer for a long time as it is highly sensitive to
8
heat.
7. Keep the infrared sensor probe clean to ensure accurate readings.
8. Before measuring temperature from the ear, remove earwax, if any.
Keep the ear canal clean.
