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 the new environment, innovative and accessible thermal detection technology is a necessity.
Thermal systems have been widely deployed in airports, commercial buildings, and public transport stations in many countries. Thermal body temperature cameras proved to be an efficient, non-contact tool to screen individuals with elevated body temperature for further virus-specific diagnostic tests, which helps to reduce the spread of infections. Although these thermal cameras cannot detect or diagnose COVID-19 or other diseases, they can be used as the first line of defence.
Face recognition is integrated into the terminal which allows users to be programmed onto the software. This allows for workers to be logged when they enter and to be loaded onto a whitelist which can be integrated with access control systems to allow or deny certain users into areas – increasing security at these workplaces. The facility to have custom adverts that cycle through when the terminal is idle is also being used to remind others of social distancing measures.
What is Thermal Temperature Measurement?
Thermal cameras are thermal imaging radiometric detection and thermal measurement systems, designed for non-contact screening. The camera is high accuracy, ±0.3°C , 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.
Why Thermal Solution is 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 operations. As a result, the demand for thermal 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. In between 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.
