A thermometer is a device used to measure the temperature of any particular device or living body and displays the reading. A thermometer scale can be in Fahrenheit or Celsius.Digital Thermometers are slowly replacing the conventional mercury thermometer due to the ease of taking reading. People often have the misconception that it contains mercury. Digital Thermometers are mercury free. These thermometers contain thermistor inside the tip which is used to measure the temperature. They provide quick and highly accurate results over the body temperature range. These thermometers are easy to read with LCD display on them. They are equipped with beep alarm & memory function and can record a wide range of temperature. Doctor’s thermometer which are mostly used can read temperature between 94oF and 105oF (35oC and 42oC). It is three in one thermometer as it can record oral, auxiliary and rectal temperatures. The battery is made up of metal and it is small and silver in colour. The type of the battery used to power the thermometer is called button cell. In technical language it is known as LR41 battery. It supplies a voltage of 1.5V under normal operating conditions. It has excellent resistance to leakage and can be stored for a long period of time. It is placed in the compartment at the back of the body under the cap. The body of the thermometer is made up of the slightly hard plastic as compared to cap. It measures 100.5mm long and the width increases from bottom to the top. The widest part is near the cap and the thinnest part is near the tip. It houses the display screen, electronic circuitry, power button and other parts. The design specifications vary from manufacturing company to company. The display screen also known as a LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) screen, is rectangular in shape. Normally used screen measures 15.5mm long and 6.5mm wide. The main function of the display screen is to display the temperature measurement in oC or oF. It will first display the last measured reading for 3 seconds and then start flashing. This flashing degree indicates that it is ready to measure the temperature.
