1. How Do Temperature Screening Devices Work?
Temperature screening devices use thermal imaging and body heat mapping to screen for fever. At Alliance, we recommend a TAURI temperature-check tablet, a no-contact temperature screening solution for your business. The system uses infrared technology to map a person’s body heat and determine if they have a temperature. People being tested can stand up to 3.3 feet away and still receive an accurate screening.
The TAURI series includes an all-in-one tablet with a fully calibrated infrared sensor and the necessary firmware. Your business can set an acceptable temperature range for patrons and employees entering your location, and the tablet will emit an alert if someone falls outside the range. Results are available within one second, ensuring that businesses can screen large numbers of people quickly and efficiently.
TAURI temperature-check tablets provide a hygienic and touch-free solution. Each tablet has an HDMI port so that the person monitoring the system can view screening results on a second monitor from a safe distance. Tablets can be independently mounted to walls or desktops.
2. How Accurate Are the Results?
Fever screening devices that are installed, used and interpreted correctly are very accurate. A TAURI temperature-check tablet is accurate within +/- 0.5°C (0.9°F).
Keep in mind: temperature screening technology does have its limits. Some people with the COVID-19 virus are asymptomatic carriers and don’t develop a fever. Additionally, other conditions may cause an elevated temperature reading. A fever screening device is one safety measure that works best when used with other safety measures, like occupancy sensor technology and social distancing.
3. Who Should Be Using Temperature Screening Solutions?
Businesses across multiple industries can benefit from temperature screening systems. Employers can screen returning employees to ensure that no one is coming into work if they’re sick. Retail stores and restaurants can screen customers before allowing entrance to their location. Schools, universities, airports and other places that see high-volume traffic can use temperature screening to identify people who may be sick and isolate them before they have contact with other people.
Temperature screening devices work quickly enough to check all patrons at a location individually, they’re highly accurate and screenings don’t require any form of contact. Altogether, fever screening is an effective solution to help reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus in public places.
