Thermal cameras can be used for the fever screening of people entering sites, airports, shops, offices. Due to the on-going coronavirus situation, there is a high demand currently for these thermal cameras.
Thermal Principle – Any object with temperatures above absolute zero emits a detectable amount of infrared radiation. A thermal camera senses such radiation and produces thermal images. A thermal camera converts IR radiation into grayscale values and matches these values to temperature values through an algorithm model.
Based on Hikvision’s proprietary advanced detectors and algorithms, our thermal camera can achieve up to +/- 0.5 degrees C.
Advantages of thermal screening/scanning
It takes only one second for a thermal camera to detect temperature of a person, thus allows screening of large numbers of people at a time
Thermal cameras feature non-contact temperature measurement from about more than one metre away, avoiding unnecessary physical contact. This can help you identify when people try to enter your site/premises if they have a high temperature so access can be refused. This will help you to protect your site/premises but more importantly help to protect your staff.
