Warranty and Service Information 

IMPORTANT!  Read user manual before using the thermometer.
Safety warnings:

1.  Keep the thermometer out of the reach of children 

2.   Do not drop the thermometer or expose to heavy shock. The unit is not shock proof.

3.   Do not immerse thermometer in water or any other liquid. The unit is not water proof.

4.   Do not store the unit in direct sunlight, at a high temperature, in high humidity or dust. 

Performance of the unit may be  degraded. 

5.   Stop using the thermometer if it operates erratically or if display malfunctions.

6.  Clean the thermometer probe before storing (see section 7)

7.  Do not attempt to disassemble the unit except to replace the batteries.
1. QUICK START
1. Press and release the POWER button. 
2. Unit will beep twice when ready. 
3. Hold firmly to temple, wait for next beep. 
4. Read results.
2. Measuring guidelines:
1.   Measurement body location is the temple, in proximity to the temporal artery, between the eye socket and the 

hairline.

2.   Do not place the thermometer on scarred tissue compromised by skin disorder, open sores or abrasions and 

patients in trauma.

3.   Consult your physician when using drug therapies that may raise the local skin temperature in the forehead; 

this may lead to incorrect reading. 

4.   Do not place the thermometer on skin exposed to direct sunlight, fireplace heat, air conditioner flow and 

cold/warm compress therapies.

5.   

Wait  at  least  two  minute  between  consecutive  measurements  for  the  unit  to  readjust  to  room 

temperature.

6.   If  the  thermometer  has  been  stored  at  a  cold  temperature,  allow  the  unit  to  warm  naturally  to  room 

temperature before using.

7.   Performance of the device may be degraded if operated or stored outside stated temperature and humidity ranges. 
3. Directions for Use:
Before measuring:

a.   Use this thermometer on a clean dry forehead. Wipe away any perspiration prior to use.

b.   Move hair aside from the temporal area and apply the probe to bare skin.
Taking Temperature:

1.   Press and release the ON/OFF 

 button, you will hear one beep. 

All segments will be displayed. 

2.   The previous result will be displayed for 2 seconds. 

3.   Wait for the hourglass icon to disappear, then two beeps will be heard  

to indicate that the thermometer is now ready to measure

 

Do not try to take a measurement before the two beeps are heard.

4.   Place the thermometers probe in the center of the temple area between the  

eye socket and the hairline. Gently press and hold it against the temple to  

ensure good contact with the skin is maintained. 

   

Correct placing and good contact with the skin ensure reliable readouts.

5.   As soon as the thermometer is in place, the measurement will start automatically  

A running circle will appear indicating that the measurement is progressing  

successfully. 

Make sure that the thermometer and the patient do not move  

while measurement is in progress

6.   A temperature reading will be displayed within 6-8 seconds. One long beep will be heard  to indicate that 

measurement is complete and temperature will be displayed for about 1 minute

7.   Press and release the On/Off  button to turn the thermometer off, or it will shut off automatically within 1 

minute.

   If you need to take another reading – wait 2 minutes after turning the thermometer off and then begin 

again. 

Setting the operating scale °F or °C

The device setting is by default Fahrenheit (°F).

To change the scale to °C, or back to °F:

1.   Press and hold the ON/OFF   button for 5 seconds – on the screen you  

will see the hourglass icon blinking and the last measured temperature.

2.   Once the last reading showed on the screen disappears, the scale  

icon (0F, 0C) changes as well.

3.   Release the button, the hourglass icon will disappear in 5 seconds and  

2 beep sounds are heard, indicating that the device is ready for use. 

4. Installing and replacing the Battery:
The thermometer uses 2 standard AAA 1.5v batteries. To install/replace:

1.  Remove the battery cover by sliding it out of its housing.

2.   Firmly attach the batteries to their place, make sure polarity is correct. (see engraving on the bottom of 

battery compartment).

3.   Slide the battery cover back into place.

   IMPORTANT: It is recommended to remove the batteries from the thermometer when it is not used for a long 

period.

   WARNING: Do not dispose of batteries in fire, recharge, put in backwards, disassemble, mix with used or 

other battery types – they may explode or leak and cause injury. Waste batteries should be deposit in a 

batteries recycling trash only. 

5. About body temperature measurement:
How does the thermometer work?

The accurate measurement is obtained by using a unique probe, which 

 measures the heat flow from the blood vessels to the  

skin and converts it to body temperature.

Information about Body Temperature
What is “normal” body temperature?

“Normal” body temperature varies from person to person, changes according to time of day and body location. 

Hot or cold baths, physical exercise, smoking and drinking, hot or cold drinks may change body temperature 

by one degree or more.
 

 

 

The following table shows the temperature ranges:

What is fever?

Average normal temperature ranges

Forehead

Over 37.8°C/100.0°F

36.1°C–37.8°C / 97.0°F-100.0°F

Rectal*

Over 38°C/100.4°F

36.3°C–38°C /  97.3°F-100.4°F

Oral (mouth)*

Over 37.8°C/100.0°F

36.1°C–37.8°C /  97.0°F-100.0°F

Axilla (armpit)*

Over 37.2°C/99.0°F

35.2°C–37.2°C /  95.4°F-99.0°F 

* Fever definitions according to the American Medical Association
The thermometer is designed to measure the temperature in the forehead, in proximity to the temple area, 

between  the  eye  socket  and  the  hairline.  It  is  important  to  know  that  the  thermal  characteristics  of  each 

measurement  body  location  –  temporal,  axillar,  oral  or  rectal  -  are  unique.  The  variance  in  temperature 

measurement in different body locations is due to the human body and not the thermometer.
IMPORTANT:  It  is  recommended  to  measure  the  body  temperature  when  healthy  to  establish  the  specific 

“normal” temperature
6. Troubleshooting and special indications

The  thermometer  has  been  designed  to  display  feedback-warnings  to  ensure  proper  usage  and 

accurate  temperature  measurement.  When  an  error  appears,  the  device  will  "beep"  5  times,  

and then the thermometer will turn off automatically. In the event of a malfunction or incorrect temperature 

measurement, the following warnings will be displayed:
Indication

 The measured temperature is below 95°F (35°C) and the display presents: LO. 

Instruction:  1. Turn the unit OFF and then ON again. 

 

2. Retake temperature using proper placement technique (see section 3).

Indication

 The measured temperature is above 107.6°F (42°C) and the display presents: HI

Instruction:   Turn the unit OFF and then ON again. To verify the reading, retake temperature  

using Proper technique (see section 3).

WARNING! A high fever condition requires seeking immediate medical attention
Indication 1
:  The thermometer is too cold or too hot to operate. 

Instructions:   1. Verify room temperature within product range  

60.8°F-104°F (16° C - 40° C)  

 

 2. Retake temperature using proper technique (See section 3).

Indication 2:   Temperature did not register because of poor contact, patient  

movement  or poor placement.

Instruction:   Turn the unit OFF, wait 2 minutes, turn it ON again and retake  

temperature using proper technique.( See section 3).

Indication 3:  Unit malfunctioned.

Instruction:   Do not use the thermometer – contact service. (See section 9) 

Indication

 Low battery - Battery icon is on continuously.

Instruction:   The battery has enough remaining life for approximately 10 more  

measurements

Indication

 Drained battery – only Battery icon is on when thermometer is turned  

on and the device turns itself OFF.

Instruction:  The battery is drained - replace battery.(See section 4)
7. Care and Cleaning

* Wipe the tip and probe with ReliOn® alcohol swab or a cotton swab moistened with 70% isopropyl alcohol 

before & after each use.

After  cleaning,  wait  at  least  2  minutes  before  taking  a  measurement  for  the  unit  to  readjust  to  room 

temperature.

* Use only a soft dry cloth to clean the body of the thermometer (if necessary). Never use an abrasive cleanser 

or submerge the thermometer in water or other liquids. 

* Do not expose the thermometer to extreme temperatures, humidity, direct sunlight or shock. Store at room 

temperature.
