Thermal Cameras for Temperature Screening
Thermal cameras are becoming increasingly popular as a way to easily and unobtrusively conduct temperature screening on large numbers of people and help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
JCT Solutions offers a compact, easy-to-use thermal camera solution that has received Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA. The JCT solution can quickly read skin-level temperatures, detect extremely small temperature differences (with an accuracy of .4 degrees Celsius) and, if a temperature is elevated, automatically provide a notification via an alarm, call, email or other signal.deo
Thermal cameras are an alternative to other temperature-screening methods, such as infrared thermometers or oral thermometers, that require a closer proximity or actual contact to measure temperature. The cameras can be used to continuously scan a large number of people as they move through an area, lessening or eliminating the need for people to wait in line to have their temperatures taken (which in turn also reduces the risk of COVID-19 transmission). People with elevated temperatures can then receive further screening.
JCT Solutions works with you to customize a thermal camera solution to meet your needs including fixed installations (for example, a ceiling mount) or portable units. Rugged design enables the cameras to operate virtually anywhere, including outside during cold weather. A single camera functions as a complete, stand alone, video and audio system and comes with an embedded video management system and analytics—no additional software or hardware is needed. Requiring less than 10 watts of power, the cameras can be connected and powered cost-effectively, including via Power Over Ethernet. An expansion module allows for use with a microphone or speaker.
Let JCT Solutions help you get the thermal camera solution that's right for your needs.
NOTE: Thermal cameras measure skin temperature and are an alternative, not a replacement, for devices (such as a thermometer) which directly measure core body temperatures. While temperature-based screening enables you to identify a person with an elevated body temperature, which can be an indication that the person has contracted an illness, a diagnostic test must be performed to determine if the individual actually has an illness. Also, a person can have an illness, such as Covid-19, and not have an elevated temperature.
