Hanley Technology with its partner Land are providing a solution to monitor a person’s body temperature from a safe distance. This facilitates the screening of people for fever, as a key tool in reducing the risk of disease spread. The vIRalert 2 fixed temperature monitoring system remotely measures human body temperature (typically the face) to an accuracy of within 0.5°C, enabling the detection of small changes in temperature induced by a fever.
By continuously calibrating an imager in real time against a precise blackbody calibration source the vIRalert 2 system can provide accurate and reliable skin temperature measurement for the screening of personnel at point of entry to areas like airports, train stations, key operational facilities and factories and other places where infectious diseases can easily spread.
Using simple and intuitive software, this point-of-entry system provides automatic on-screen and audible alarms to alert the operator so that early action can be taken to protect the premises against the risk of spreading the infection.
