Body Temperature (Basic)
Generally, you can measure the body temperature on the forehead, in the ear canal, under the armpit, in the mouth or in the anus. The temperature measured at different parts of the body may differ slightly.
|Body Part||Normal Temperature Range|
|Forehead||36.1°C - 37.5°C / 97.0°F - 99.5°F|
|Ear canal||35.8°C - 38.0°C / 96.4°F - 100.4°F|
|Mouth||35.5°C - 37.5°C / 95.9°F - 99.5°F|
|Armpit||34.7°C - 37.3°C / 94.5°F - 99.1°F|
|Anus||36.6°C - 38.0°C / 97.9°F - 100.4°F|
The normal body temperature range slightly varies with age and gender. Generally, newborns or children have higher body temperature than adults and adults have higher body temperature than the elderly. Women’s body temperatures are approximately 0.3°C higher than men’s.
Variation in Body Temperature
|Normal body temperature varies by the time of 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 each day.|
Infrared Thermometer measures the body temperature based on the infrared energy emitted from the eardrum or the forehead. Users can quickly get measurement results after properly positioning the probe in the ear canal or forehead. It can also be used to measure the surface temperature of milk and water.
The thermometer consists of a shell, an LCD, a measure button, a beeper, an infrared temperature sensor and a microprocessor.
3. Operating Principle
The infrared temperature sensor collects infrared energy emitted by the eardrum or the skin surface. After being focused by a lens, the energy is converted into a temperature reading by the thermopiles and measurement circuits.
4. Intended Use
The thermometer is intended for the measurement of human body temperatures. The forehead mode is indicated for use by people of all ages and the eardrum mode is indicated for use by people above three months old.
Do not use the thermometer in the ear if the ear is infected with otitis or suppuration.

2. Press the Power button to power on the thermometer.
3. Press the Mode button, the thermometer enters the Forehead mode. The “Head” symbol is displayed on the screen.
4. When measuring adults, ensure “adult” mode is selected. When measuring children, ensure “child” mode is selected. The corresponding symbol is displayed on the screen.
5. Point the thermometer probe to the center of the forehead, approx. 1-3cm away from the skin surface.
6. Press and release the Measure button for 1 second. The temperature reading will be displayed on the screen instantly.
7. If no activity is detected, the thermometer will power off automatically in 10 seconds.
Measuring Object Temperature
- Put the cover on the probe of thermometer.
- Press the Power button to power on the thermometer.
- Press the Mode button, the thermometer enters the Object mode. The “House” symbol is displayed on the screen.
- Point the thermometer probe to the center of the object, approx. 1-3cm away from the object surface.
- Press and release the Measure button for 1 second. The temperature reading will be displayed on the screen instantly.
- If no activity is detected, the thermometer will power off automatically in 10 seconds.
After a Measurement
- After each measurement, you can enter the recall mode and query earlier temperature readings. For more details, see “Recall 20 memories” in the preceding tables.
- After each measurement, clean the probe with a soft cloth and put the thermometer in a dry and well-ventilated place.
It is dangerous to make a self-diagnosis or self-treatment based on the obtained results. For such purposes, please consult a doctor.
- The thermometer is suitable for an indoor environment without strong air convection (for example, winds from a fan, an air-conditioner or a heater) between the thermometer and the person.
- Make sure that the ear canal is clean and dry before starting a measurement. It is recommended to clean the ear canal with a cotton swab if any dirt exists. Otherwise, the probe may be polluted, and temperature readings may be inaccurate.
- Do not hold the thermometer for a long time, because it is sensitive to the ambient temperature.
- Make sure the sensor head is free of foreign matters before use.
- Make sure the forehead has no sweat and no hairs covering before measuring the forehead temperature; otherwise, the result could be incorrect.
- No intense emotion or strenuous exercises should be done before measuring as these naturally raise body temperature.
- After measuring the data once, you should wait for the backlight to turn off before measuring the next person or object.
- Slide the battery cover off along the marked direction and take it off.
- Insert the two AAA batteries into the compartment according to the stated polarities.
Make sure that the batteries are installed correctly. Otherwise, the thermometer may be damaged.
If the low-battery symbol is displayed on the screen, replace the batteries.
Batteries of the same type should be used. Dispose of the used batteries in accordance with the local environmental policies.
The thermometer is shipped with batteries. First, open the battery cover and then remove the insulating piece before installing the batteries.
