Preventing the spread of infectious diseases (EN)

Infrared cameras detect the heat emitted from the skin which produces a temperature map of a person in real time. Totally harmless and non intrusive, just the way a normal camera records a video clip. The result is a coloured image where the colours represent temperature. Temperatures higher than a certain threshold can be highlighted.

Reliable measurement from Xenics

To detect a disease in an early stage, the Xenics’ Raven-384 infrared camera offers a solution that is simple, reliable and stable at places of incoming travellers such as airports, bus and railway stations, metros. The pedestrian flow will not be influenced thanks to the high frame rate. Temperature differences as small as 0.050°C can be distinguished. In addition Xenics’ eliminates the stability problem all microbolometer cameras cope with using the reference method. You just need to put a precisely controlled temperature reference in the field of view to provide
reliable screening. The high definition image quality permits accurate fever detection of both individuals and crowds.

Minimal set up and examination time

You can easily mount the Raven-384 on a tripod and control the infrared camera from a PC over the standard Ethernet interface for temporary screening. At places with long queues such as passport or customs control points, where you can screen people on an individual basis, you can also have a fixed installation.
We recommend that you check the body temperature at the corner of the individuals’ eye, where the temperature approaches the core temperature. The examination takes no longer than a fraction of a second.
