The following devices are designed for detecting elevated body temperatures, however not all thermal imagers are suitable for fever screening use.

Although a fever screening system should never be used to definitively diagnose a disease or virus, they can be of great benefit for potentially detecting illnesses and curbing the spread of infection.

Benefits Of Fever Screening

Lack of Direct Contact

Comply with social distancing protocols and spot potential signs of illness or infection while remaining at a safe distance, ranging from 5cm to 5ft apart depending on model.

Swift Process

Some systems are capable of screening up to two people every 3 seconds, averaging roughly 40 people a minute and 2,400 per hour.

Ease & Simplicity

Handheld or tripod mounted, these fever screening systems are exceedingly simple to set up and operate with many utilising a simple pass or fail process.

Handheld vs Mounted?

When choosing the right Fever Screening System for you the first important question to ask is, do you need a handheld device or are your needs more in line with a mounted system? While a handheld is often more affordable, mounted versions are all but necessary when dealing with large crowds or a consistent flow of bodies which require scanning.

Handheld Non-Contact IR Thermometers

Compact, affordable and ideal for instant deployment handheld fever screening systems are best suited for swiftly scanning individuals, providing audible alarms for instant results. Useable even in low light conditions, these battery powered devices are ergonomic, simple to operate and purpose built for smaller business or personal use.

Handheld Fever Screening Systems

Whereas Handheld Non-Contact Infrared Thermometers require manual operation and close proximity to the individual in order to obtain a reading, Handheld fever screening systems do not. While still requiring manual operation, the distance from target can increase up to 2m, further safeguarding the operator while increasing footfall.

Mounted Fever Screening Systems

With impressive thermal resolution, an excellent temperature range and an even greater operating distance, the mounted fever screening systems comprise a crucial first line of detection for small, medium or large businesses. Offering a range of features from inbuilt A.I. and automated activation, these systems are applicable in low light conditions and designed to scan large numbers without affecting foot traffic.
