Hello Skooter Blog readers. Today I talk about a Infrared Thermometer Digital Speaker (Digital Talking Forehead-IR InfraRed Body Temperature Thermometer) acquired on DealExtreme, measuring the body temperature only a second, simply wedge it on the forehead of the person and press a button to activate the transmitter / infrared sensor.
The Infrared Thermometer Digital Speaker It works with a bateria CR2032 (included). The instruction manual does not help much, I could not set the clock in any way, even following the instructions. The chat feature temperature measurement (or hours) could even be useful for people who have some difficulty in seeing the display, but it has among the Portuguese 6 language options available.
The Infrared Thermometer Digital Speaker It comes with a protective cover and 3 layers for sensor, beyond the instruction manual in English. No body do há device 3 buttons: one to make reading, one for the memory functions and one to make him talk. By making the measure only in contact with the forehead for 1 second, the Infrared Thermometer Digital Speaker It is ideal for use in children.
According to the manual, These temperatures are considered normal and fever, measurements from different parts of the body:
|Position||Normal Range||Band with Fever|
|Armpit||35,3 a 36,9 ° C||37,2C or higher|
|Head||35 a 38 ° C||0,6º or 0,8 º C higher than normal|
|Mouth||35,9 a 37,5 ° C||37,6 C or higher|
|Challenge||36,5 a 37,9 ° C||38 C or higher|
The manual says that the normal temperature varies from person to person, therefore it is important to make measurements with the healthy person for several days to know what is the track that person, fever and thus easily detect if the temperature is higher than normal. The manual states that this variation occurs only insofar forehead, but in the table we can see that the inaccuracy is far larger forehead. I did not like that very much, perhaps I should have bought one of infrared thermometers that measure the temperature of the ear, also available in DealExtreme.
That Infrared Thermometer Digital Speaker can measure temperatures between 32,0 ° C and 42,9 ° C, and works at room temperature of 15 º C to 35 º C. If the person is coming from a different environment than was the thermometer or if the thermometer is taken to another room, it is good to wait 20 a 30 minutes so that he can “acclimatize”.
The memory Infrared Thermometer Digital Speaker It is for 30 measures, but to me it is useless, since I could not operate it correctly. There are a number of other recommendations in the manual, for use or device dicas, Limpa-the, etc.
There is also a specification table, in which incluo aqui:
- Product Name: Clinical IR Forehead Thermometer
- Model: DX6603B
- Voltage: 3V DC (direct current) – 1 bateria CR2032
- Energy Consumption: < 30mA (for the voice function)
- Temperature sensor: Infrared sensor
- For temperature measurement range corporeal: 32,0 ºC a 42,9 ° C (86,9 ºF a 109,3 º F)
- Accuracy Measure: +/- 0,2° C (or +/- 0,4º F) of 35.5 ° C to 42.0 ° C (or 95,9 ºF a 107,6 º F) and +/- 0,3° C (or +/- 0,5º F) from 32,0 C to 35.4 ° C (or 89,6 ºF a 95,8 º F) and 42,1 C to 42.9 ° C (or 107,7 ºF a 109,3 º F)
- External Dimensions: 105(Length) x 35 (Width) x 22 (Depth) mm
- Weight: 63g (with battery)
- Functioning environment: Temperature: 15 º C ~ 35 ° C (59 ºF a 95 º F), relative humidity: 20% RH a 80% RH
What I can say is that the vagueness of +/- 0,2 é º C notável, since taking several consecutive measurements is possible to see some +/- 0,1 º C difference easily. The working environment can be problematic in Brazil, as I'm writing this article with an ambient temperature of 33 º C in the night, only missing 2 C to achieve maximum operating temperature.
My recommendation for Infrared Thermometer Digital Speaker It is neutral. I do not recommend as the only barometer of home, is good to have it for rapid and practices, but it is also good to have one of the most traditional mercury or as a digital I evaluated this other already, to guarantee. The recommendation is not positive because I was unable to set date / time, etc. even following the instruction manual. But, Nor is negative, because it works to make the essential: aferir at body temperature.
As a buy, was made in 22/11/2011, sent em 29/11 and arrived in my hands 16/12, less than one month later, which is great considering it was the month of November / December, who is usually quite critical. The packet came as described “HEALTH + BEAUTY”, with the declared weight 113 programs and declared value of $14,38 USD (U.S. dollars two), slightly below the real value of the product. The package has no tracking and was not taxed.
And I'm ending here the article about the purchase of Infrared Thermometer Digital Speaker (Digital Talking Forehead-IR InfraRed Body Temperature Thermometer). If you also want to shop in DealExtreme, directly from Hong Kong, click here, good shopping.
Update 05/05/2012: Today my girlfriend was with
ruse fever, I then use the thermometer and the Pilha CR2032 was weak. Made by substitution of another cartouche and then yes I could hit date / time without difficulty. Apparently he was not working properly by now have come to the rather weak battery or maybe some bug that had disappeared to leave it without battery for a few seconds (wiping any trace memory). Now with the correct operation, change my assessment of Infrared Thermometer Digital Speaker (Digital Talking Forehead-IR InfraRed Body Temperature Thermometer) to positive.
