High Temperature Detection

In light of the global outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19), it is vital to turn our attention to the next phase – the safe return to work and safe opening of large venues, by identifying those who could pose a risk to other members of the public. Together, we can prevent the spread of infection.

Although no thermal cameras can detect or diagnose the coronavirus, Helios Solutions iDetect cameras can be used as a primary detection system, alongside other body temperature screening tools for detecting elevated skin temperature in high-traffic public places through rapid, accurate individual screening.

When the iDetect thermal camera identifies critical temperatures of the skin in key areas – especially the corner of the eye and forehead – then the person may be selected for additional screening. Identifying individuals with elevated body temperature (EBT) who should then be further screened with virus-specific diagnostic tests, can help reduce or dramatically slow the spread of viruses and infections.

The iDetect thermal image camera must be able to image the inner corner of the eye (tearduct) when screening for EBT. This can only be achieved with high resolution sensors. iDetect utilises high resolution state-of-the-art sensors with innovative visual software for speedy detection and reporting to personnel.

Using Helios Solutions iDetect thermal cameras, officials can be more discrete, efficient and effective in identifying individuals that need further screening with virus-specific tests.

A variety of institutions, including airports, train stations, schools, and businesses, are using thermal screening as an EBT detection method and as part of employee health and screening (EH&S).
