As businesses, schools and other public entities begin to reopen, handheld thermal cameras, can be a first line of defense against potential health risks.

Screening skin temperature accurately and quickly is incredibly important for public health and safety, especially during time of crisis or pandemic like COVID-19.  Infrared technology is critical, as it allows non-contact, quick, and efficient temperature screens.  Infrared temperature scanners and other thermal imaging systems are critical to maintain safe work environments and public spaces by identifying individuals with elevated skin temperatures.

HOW DO INFRARED TEMPERATURE SCREENERS WORK IN DETECTING TEMPERATURE

Infrared temperature screening systems use thermal imaging cameras and softw3are to read skin surface temperature and calculate an estimated core body temperature.  If that temperature is above a preset range, an alarm will sound to alert the elevated temperature.


WHAT IF SOMEONE HAS AN ELEVATED SKIN TEMPERATURE

If the thermal imaging system detects an individual has a high temperature, that person should be pulled aside for a secondary screening with a clinical thermometer.

WHERE CAN YOU UTILIZE TEMPERATURE SCREENING

1.  Factories and Warehouses
Screen employees’ temperatures as they clock in for their work shifts. Keep your teams safe and productivity high.

2.   Offices
Self-service kiosks are perfect for offices and small commercial lobbies. Visitors and employees walking through the door can screen their own temperatures and receive a badge if they pass the test.

3.  Airports

Temperature screening systems in airports help prevent the spread of contagious diseases like COVID-19.

4.  Stadiums/Arenas

Check employees’ and fans’ temperatures as they walk through the gates. Screening will be an essential part of live sports’ return!

5.  Schools

Screen teachers, students, and staff members' temperatures to protect your campus.

6. Hospitals, Movie Theatres, Theme Parks, Casinos, Churches, and many more.

 

NOT ALL INFRARED CAMERAL SYSTEMS ARE CREATED EQUALLY

When human health and safety are on the line, do not settle for anything less than the best.  Ensure your temperature screening system has everything you need to succeed.   All leading thermal camera solutions have these three essential elements.  Accept NO substitutes.

  • A thermal Camera
  • A screen or computer
  • A temperature References
