Thermal Imaging System for Human Fever Screening

How It Works

Thermoscreen's high-accuracy Infrasight infrared camera, manufactured by Optotherm, measures skin temperature by detecting and quantifying the infrared energy that is continuously being emitted from the face. As individuals walk up to the screening station, skin temperatures above a predefined threshold are detected and displayed in bright colors on the computer screen. Verbal instructions and screening results are announced through the computer's speakers and an audible alarm is activated to notify personnel that a temperature violation has occurred.

Integrated Visual Camera

A visual camera is mounted inside the camera enclosure next to the infrared camera to provide continuous visual images of subjects as they pass through the screening zone. Real-time video enables operators to quickly identify subjects as they are being screened. Highlighted areas and temperature values on the thermal image are transferred to the visual image so that operators can quickly process screening results.

Mobile Camera Stand

When mounted on the mobile computer stand, Thermoscreen can be moved quickly to alternate locations in order to screen additional groups of people or to accommodate changes in pedestrian flow. Thermoscreen is a completely passive device and emits no harmful radiation.
