Original Press Release:

Palmer Wahl introduces Fever Alert Imaging Systems in response to COVID-19

Asheville, NC: Palmer Wahl Instruments, Inc. is pleased to announce the availability of Fever Alert Imaging Systems for monitoring human skin temperatures.  Drawing on our experience with thermal imaging technology and our work during epidemics since the 2002 SARS outbreak, we are responding to the unprecedented COVID-19 situation by leveraging strategic relationships to offer this solution, as part of our commitment to go “Beyond the Scale”.

The CDC cites fevers as a primary symptom for those infected with Coronavirus. Because our expertise is temperature, we seek to help by using our knowledge and experience to detect this symptom.  Cooperating with our network around the world, we’ve sourced three models of Fever Alert cameras, designed to measure human skin temperature from a safe distance with no contact required.  Set alarm limits to distinguish those individuals with higher than normal skin temperatures; those persons may require further screening by a qualified person to determine if they have a fever.  Sensitivity is less than or equal to 40 millikelvins, allowing the user to see subtle temperature differences and make finer distinctions. 

Turret and bullet styles are available for indoor installation. Each fever alert model can be installed permanently or setup temporarily, and utilizes artificial intelligence to recognize human faces, screening up to 30 employees or visitors at a time.  At the optimal measuring distance for each model, accuracy is ±0.9°F (±0.5°C).  Choose the model that measures at the distance your installation location requires; options are available that measure up to 164 feet, up to 131 feet, and up to 49 feet.  Add the adapter needed to install the camera on the ceiling, wall, or pole mount, or add a tripod for temporary setup. Each unit includes analysis software.

As we all seek ways to adapt our routines to do business as safely as possible during the current pandemic, Fever Alert systems can provide an additional level of prevention and reassurance for companies, employees, and customers.  

For more information about each model, visit, or call us at 1-800-421-2853.  Fever alert models are not medical devices; they are preliminary screening tools to be used to determine if further medical testing may be worthwhile.
