Innovative solution for detection of elevated body temperature

20 May 2020

STEMMER IMAGING AG has signed an agreement with Automation Technology for the distribution of it’s FebriScan systems - complete LWIR camera solutions for detecting elevated human body temperatures.

Automation Technology is one of our long-term partners and we’ve always had the confidence with them being able to provide our customers with leading edge technology. The FebriScan product was developed not only for our customers, but for the whole environment, as it significantly reduces the risk of infectious diseases from spreading.

With current restrictions being enforced due to the COVID-19 situation, non-contact elevated body temperature measurements are crucial to maintain the social distancing guidelines while performing checks. The high-precision system is available as a an all in one or portable solution and performs checks that meet the requirements of the IEC 80601-2-59:2017 standards.

To accommodate varying installation space limitations, the Febriscan is available with a number of configuration options that enable it to be mounted at a distance of 1 or 2m away from the subject. The system can be deployed in less than 5 minutes and enables a true body temperature measurement with the highest accuracy thanks to the calibrated high precision temperature reference black body – which is used to reference the measure temperature to a precision required for true elevated body temperature detection.

To ensure that the temperature that is measured is as close to the core body temperature as possible, the system detects and measures the temperature at the inner eyelid angle of the eye (canthus)rather than the skin temperature which is proven to be unreliable.
