A thermal imaging camera can be an effective screening device for detecting individuals with an elevated skin temperature. This type of monitoring can provide useful information when used as a screening tool in workplaces, sensitive facilities or high-traffic areas to help identify people with an elevated temperature compared to the general population. That individual can then be further screened using other body temperature measuring tools and a informed decision made on their right to access.
Thermavis thermal cameras are sensitive devices capable of measuring small temperature differences. The technology has been tuned to be most sensitive and accurate to the range of human body temperatures, from 36°C (96.8°F) to 42°C (107.6°F)
Thermavis cameras display a subjects temperature visually, and can be set to sound alarms that alert when a certain temperature threshold is exceeded. The operator can then instantly decide what action is to be taken.
Thermavis handheld and individual cameras also have the ability to record and store the thermal data of the subjects, for audit or regulatory purposes.
Thermavis have solutions designed for rapidly screening large number of people as well as screening on an indivdual basis.
Organisations all over the world are using thermal cameras and have applied this methodology to screen people entering and leaving the premisis. It is a quick, non-contact method that is safe for both the camera operator and the people being screened, reducing the risk of the spread of Covid-19.
