In order to further normalize the epidemic prevention and control work and spare no effort to protect the health and life safety of patients and medical staff, many public places have installed infrared thermometers. So, what is normal temperature with infrared thermometer? The article will briefly introduce it.

This passage is going to talk about the followings of temperature with infrared thermometer: 

Use NCIT correctly

Cleaning between uses

Prepare to be assessed


Use NCIT correctly

Personnel using this equipment should strictly follow the manufacturer's guidelines and instructions to use a specific NCIT. The manufacturer’s instructions usually include the following information and recommendations for proper use:

Prepare the environment and NCIT:

The operating environment may affect the performance of NCIT. Instructions usually include recommendations for best use, for example: use in unventilated spaces, avoid direct sunlight or close to radiant heat sources. Determine whether the conditions are most suitable for use.

Generally, the ambient temperature should be between 60.8-104ºF (16-40ºC) and the relative humidity should be below 85%. Before use, put the NCIT in the test environment or room for 10-30 minutes to adapt the NCIT to the environment.

Cleaning between uses:

To clean the NCIT between uses, follow the instructions in the "Cleaning and Sanitizing" section of the product description. Most NCITs must not be immersed in water or other liquids.

Prepare to be assessed:

When preparing to use NCIT for temperature measurement, the person using NCIT should generally ensure that the test area on the forehead is clean, dry and not blocked during the measurement. By wearing excessive clothes or head coverings (such as headscarves, headscarves) or using facial cleansing products (such as makeup towels), the person's body temperature or the temperature of the forehead test area did not increase or decrease.


As mentioned earlier, the person using this equipment should strictly follow the manufacturer's guidelines and instructions for use for the specific NCIT used. In particular, the following is a typical description of the use of NCIT.

Keep the NCIT sensing area perpendicular to the forehead, and instruct the person to remain still during the measurement.

The distance between the NCIT and the forehead is specific to each NCIT. For the correct measurement distance, please refer to the manufacturer's instructions. Do not touch the sensing area of NCIT, and keep the sensor clean and dry.


Measuring a person's body temperature can be done in several ways. One way to measure the surface temperature of a person is to use a non-contact infrared thermometer (NCIT). NCITs can be used to reduce the risk of cross-contamination and minimize the risk of spreading disease. Although 98.6°F (37.0°C) is generally regarded as the “normal” temperature, some studies have shown that the “normal” body temperature ranges from 97°F (36.1°C) to 99°F (37.2F) ° C). Before using NCIT, it is important to understand the advantages, limitations and correct use of these thermometers. Improper use of NCIT may result in incorrect temperature measurement.
