Thermal Imaging System detects fevered individuals amongst groups.

November 18, 2014

Used to screen groups of people, HSI4000M Fever Alert System identifies individuals with body/skin temperatures higher than pre-set point and can produce audible/visible alarms to signal operator. Non-contact IR temperature measurement technology lets operator remain safely 10–32 ft from subjects while screening multiple individuals, and thermal/visible live video feeds can be set to display in desired mode; temperature alarms are displayed in both views. Fever Alert software is included. Read More
