How Will Your Business, School Campus, or Organization Move Forward During and After the COVID-19 Crisis?
Thermal fever detection cameras can help save lives and protect the public
Over the past few months, the world has changed dramatically. Our lives have become measured, careful, and distant. With the reality of social distancing due to COVID-19, the need for safety measures has increased ten-fold. Society is very concerned about the spread of infection and contacting the virus. In this new environment, innovative and accessible thermal detection technology is a necessity.
For decades, thermal systems have been widely deployed in airports, commercial buildings, and public transportation stations in many countries. The World Health Organization (WHO) suggested in January 2020 that screening of passengers at airports, railway stations, and long-distance bus stations is encouraged.
Note: The camera itself cannot be used to identify a virus or an infection.
What is Thermal Temperature Measurement?
Thermal cameras are thermal imaging radiometric detection and thermal measurement systems, designed for non-contact screening. The camera is a high accuracy, ±0.5°F, high resolution, and multi-person measurement system. Cameras can measure multiple people from a distance of 10 to 16 feet away and within a span of 4.3 feet, enabling quick assessment without personal contact. This remote way of monitoring possible signs of infection reduces the risk of further contamination without using intrusive measures.
With proven efficiency and non-contact fever detection tools, thermal cameras can help reduce the spread of coronavirus or any other future viral threats. These advanced screening techniques use this latest technology, along with other health measures, which will help people feel safe at work or in public places.
Body temperature cameras include the following aspects:
- Accurate temperature measurement of ±0.5°F, which is safe and effective
- Face detection and display measurement results appear on a display
- A thermal resolution of 400 x 300 pixels
- A fast pass non-contact screening process
- Efficient access for multi-person measurement
- On-board temperature-detection algorithm
- Superior daytime imaging
- Visual abnormal signal to facilitate back-tracking
Why is Thermal Imaging Important in Today’s COVID-19 Climate?
The worldwide pandemic has created uncertainty for businesses around the globe, particularly as they prepare to return to a “new normal” in operations. As a result, the demand for thermal imaging cameras is unprecedented. These discreet, efficient, and non-contact cameras are a helpful way to screen employees, customers, vendors, and others, to ensure their personal safety while restoring business confidence. Amid social distancing protocols, a thermal body temperature camera is an essential tool for measuring temperatures in a short amount of time when speed and accuracy are crucial. Public health experts believe that temperature screening equipment will become a staple of public life in our new reality.
