Thermal cameras for measuring temperature
Covid-19 highlighted many security issues for businesses around the world. As they struggled to find solutions, they realized that they needed better security options. The added security would help prevent further spread of the virus and ensure the health of employees and visitors. This is where the use of new thermal cameras began.
BASICS OF THERMAL CAMERA
There is a significant difference between thermal cameras and traditional security cameras. Conventional security cameras use shortwave infrared to generate an image, while thermal cameras use medium or long wavelength infrared, where thermal images are passive and only sense temperature changes.
But not all thermal cameras are suitable for all businesses. It is important to talk to experts in the field to make sure you have the right cameras for your needs.
THERMAL CAMERAS AND COVID-19
Many companies found that thermal cameras were a solution to many of the problems caused by COVID-19. The biggest issue businesses face is ensuring that employees and visitors do not enter the premises while sick, because of the speed with which the virus spreads.
Camera manufacturers soon discovered that thermal cameras were a solution to the need to detect sick employees or visitors.
Thermal cameras help companies and airports scan employees to see if anyone entering their buildings has a high temperature. Thermal cameras help you keep your employees and customers safe and healthy.
The basic and most economical model that RATECH offers for measuring body temperature is the DAHUA DH-TPC-BF5421 thermal camera. These cameras have been installed in some official and commercial premises in Albania.
Dahua Technology has been at the forefront of the fight against Covid-19 since its appearance in China. On January 24, 2020, the first thermal cameras to measure temperature were installed in Wuhan, the area most affected by the epidemic. Since then, Dahua thermal temperature measurement systems have been installed at airports, hospitals, government buildings, bus and train stations, and other facilities around the world.
Accurate measurement of body temperature, with an error margin of only ± 0.3 ° C, helps prevent the spread of the virus, while a rapid measurement of 3 people per second allows free movement of people, without creating queues. The camera measures the temperature at a distance of up to 3 meters and gives an audible alarm, which allows immediate detection of people with high temperature. Thanks to AI technology, temperature measurement is not affected by the coverage of the face or head, or the presence of hot objects.
