Detecting a person's body temperature
to ensure it's not elevated, is often
the first line of defense against
virus infection propagation.
Industry Depot offers several
instruments and methods that
facilitate this. The purpose of
this screening is to differentiate
people who are well from those who
have a fever and not to measure
absolute body temperatures.
Infrared devices (IR thermometers and
thermal imagers) are used more and
more against virus infection
propagation. Even though
infrared sensors cannot detect the
virus and it can't measure the
temperature like a medical thermometer
would, it can quickly and from a safe
distance distinguish potentially ill
Infrared devices work for this
application because human skin is a
high emitter of infrared radiation.
2 Main Types of Thermal
Imaging Cameras; Handheld and Fixed
Handheld thermal imaging
cameras provide hot spot
detection and measurement that
infrared thermometers do not.
Some can be mounted on a tripod and
some even have a video output allowing
you to see the image on a monitor
Fixed thermal imaging cameras are
great for more permanent applications
such as monitoring people entering an
area and can be equipped with an
alarm. Multiple cameras can be
set to different building entrances
and can be displayed in one room such
as a security guard house.
medium and large businesses
theaters and arenas
and other sports facilities
Alarm settings can simplify the
process by indicating the average
temperature, the alarm temperature and
the measured temperature.
