Title
(EN) BODY TEMPERATURE MEASURING SYSTEM, DATA READING DEVICE, AND DRIVING CONTROL METHOD THEREOF
Abstract
(EN)

In a body temperature measuring system, power consumption of a data reading device is reduced. A clinical thermometer of this invention is a body temperature measuring system including a body temperature tag and a data reading device. A processing unit of the body temperature tag includes a power supply circuit, a semiconductor temperature sensor for detecting a band gap voltage, and a storage unit configured to store calibration data to calibrate the detected band gap voltage, and is configured to, upon activating the power supply circuit, send the detected band gap voltage via the antenna unit together with the calibration data. The data reading device includes an excitation unit, and a sensing unit configured to sense a change in a magnetic field generated by excitation. The power level of the excitation unit is changed upon sensing the change in the magnetic field.
