Braun ThermoScan 7 (IRT6520) Ear Thermometer Review
Thanks to its pre-warmed tip, Braun ThermoScan 7 ear thermometers are already regarded as a benchmark for accuracy, and are widely used and endorsed by doctors around Europe. The tip on other thermometers can cool the area where the reading is taken, which can lead to inaccurate readings. The tip on the ThermoScan is warmed before use, to ensure professional accuracy.
The ExacTemp guidance system confirms the correct position and accurate reading with a light and a beep.
With Age Precision technology Braun ThermoScan 7 gives you even more reassurance when it comes to interpreting your child’s temperature.

Useful Information About Braun ThermoScan 7 IRT6520 Ear Thermometer
How to use your Braun ThermoScan 7
1-Remove the thermometer from the protective case.
2-Push the Power button . During an internal self-check, the display shows all segments. Then the last temperature taken will be displayed for 5 seconds.
3-The lens filter indicator will blink to signal one is needed. To achieve accurate measurements, make sure a new, clean lens filter is in place before each measurement. Attach a new lens filter by pushing the thermometer probe straight into the lens filter inside the box and then pulling out. Note: The Braun ThermoScan will not work unless a lens filter is attached.
4-Select age with Age Precision button as shown below. Press button to toggle through each age group.
NOTE: You must select an age in order to take a measurement.
5-Fit the probe snuggly into the ear canal, then push and release the Start button.
6-ExacTemp light will pulse while temperature measurement is in progress. The light will remain solid for 3 seconds to indicate that a successful temperature reading has been achieved. NOTE: If the probe has been properly inserted into the ear canal during the measurement, a long beep will sound to signal the completed measurement. If the probe has NOT been constantly placed in a stable position in the ear canal, a sequence of short beeps will sound, the ExacTemp light will go out and the display will show an error message (POS = position error).
7-The confirmation beep indicates that an accurate temperature measurement has been taken. The result is shown on the display.
8-For the next measurement, press Eject button to remove and discard used lens filter, and put on a new, clean lens filter.
NOTE: Defaults to last age setting used if you do not change. The Braun ThermoScan ear thermometer turns off automatically after 60 seconds of inactivity. The thermometer can also be turned off by pressing the Power button . The display will briefly flash OFF and it will go blank.
Always replace disposable lens filters to maintain accuracy and hygiene. The right ear measurement may differ from the measurement taken in the left ear. Therefore, always take the temperature in the same ear. The ear must be free from obstructions or excess earwax build-up to take an accurate reading. External factors may influence ear temperatures, including when an individual has:
Poor probe placement
Used lens filter
In the cases below, wait 20 minutes prior to taking a temperature.
Extreme hot and cold room temperature
Lying on pillow
Use the untreated ear if ear drops or other ear medications have been placed in the ear canal.
This model stores the last 9 temperature measurements.
To display the stored measurement, the thermometer must be turned on.
Press the Mem button.
The display shows the temperature, and when releasing the Mem button, the stored temperature for that memory number is displayed, together with “M”.
Each time the Mem button is pushed, the stored reading and an M is displayed to indicate each temperature measurement (eg. M2).
Memory mode is automatically exited by not pressing the memory button for 5 seconds.
Changing the temperature scale °F to °C.
Your Braun ThermoScan 7 (IRT6520) is shipped with the Celsius (°C) temperature scale activated. If you wish to switch to Fahrenheit (°F) and/or back from Fahrenheit to Celsius, proceed as follows:
Make sure the thermometer is turned off .
Press and hold down the Power button .
After about 3 seconds the display will show this sequence: °C / SET / °F / SET.
Release the Power button when the desired temperature scale is shown. There will be a short beep to confirm the new setting, then the thermometer is turned off automatically.
