Super High Accuracy Non Contact Temperature Screening
Our Temperature Screening Assistant uses a thermal camera for increased accuracy vs. an infrared thermometer. This is also known as thermopile technology.
The largest accuracy challenge facing digital thermometers is associated with the distance and orientation of the thermometer to the subject’s forehead. Heat decays rapidly with distance, so the difference in a temperature reading 1” away from a subject’s forehead vs. 4” away can be dramatic.
Thermal Cameras work on the principle of light being absorbed by hundreds of thousands of tiny electrical detectors in the camera, turning this into an electrical value. A thermal camera provides higher accuracy based on the distance at which heat decays vs. light decays (inches vs. feet) and the size of the area from which the temperature is read (a very small section of the forehead vs. the entire face with a thermal camera).
