How Does The Temporal Artery Thermometer Work?

With just a simple scan of the forehead, the Temporal Artery Thermometer accurately measures the body temperature. 

Step 1

Remove the protective cap and place the temporal thermometer head against the center of the forehead.


Step 2

Once the temporal thermometer touches the skin, press the button on your thermometer and keep it depressed, gently gliding the Exergen temporal scanner across the forehead at the hairline level. Avoid scanning down the side of the face, or else the technology will not work.

Step 3

While holding the button down, use the scanner to touch the soft spot behind the ear. Then, you can let go of the button and read the temperature.

Advanced Technology

The TAT-2000C uses infrared technology to help with ease of use and accurate measurements of the temporal artery. Our patented Arterian Heat Balance system ensures temperature readings are accurate by mathematically accounting for ambient temperatures and the cooling effect of TAT-2000C scanner.

Accuracy of Temporal Thermometers

While temporal artery thermometers and infrared non-contact thermometers are both used to measure body temperature, the non-contact is considered to be more inaccurate for several reasons. Learn about the accuracy of temporal thermometers, and why no touch thermometers are highly inaccurate.
