Thermal Camera sensor for Covid-19

Our products are originally designed for contactless temperature monitoring of equipment. As an emergency solution, we have enabled them to monitor for elevated skin temperature (EST) too. They do not have the accuracy of medical grade systems and are not be considered or used as medical grade ones. They are not designed for the specific intention of human fever detection nor the diagnosis, mitigation or prevention of disease or health conditions. Where the use of our products is permitted, they should always be complemented with medical grade devices for confirmation and additional screening. In the USA the use of our thermal cameras and sensors is allowed / authorized as part of the FDA's emergency guidance.

Infrared IR sensors & thermal cameras
for staff & visitors temperature monitoring

Countries have shown that it is possible to reduce the spreading of the SARS-CoV-2 or Novel Corona virus by implementing strong protective measures while trying to keep the economy going. The WHO also recommends the temperature screening at the workplace.

One of those measures is the use of non-contact infrared thermometry temperature measurement to screen for elevated skin temperatures (EST) in the workplace. This is critical to re-open or keep open factories, buildings, construction sites, businesses or facilities of any kind. Staff, employees and visitors need their temperature checked to help in the containment.

Our solutions are fully privacy compliant: you define what information is shown and stored. From anonymous self-assesment with a simple color code and no metrics to a centrally monitored system with visual images and name recording.

Each sensor or thermal camera is calibrated traceable to the NIST standards at 33 and 35°C in a 20-25°C environment.

Infrared Spot Sensor Kit
for 1:1 elevated skin temperature screening

The IR spot sensors operate on a one-to-one basis. Rather than looking at a crowd of people, this setup scans one person at a time.

Scanning is very fast. Every 0.6 seconds a temperature reading is processed and validated against the defined limits. This allows to quickly process large groups of people.

It performs the skin temperature measurement with an accuracy of ±0.5°C in a standard environment of 20-25°C (68-77°F). Using different on board electronics, the sensor has automatic compensation built-in based on ambient temperature data. This improves the sensor's accuracy and reduces drifting.

Our IR spot sensors work by capturing the emitted infrared radiation within a narrow field of view. The sensor detects if a person is within the required 5-30cm (2-12in) range and then takes the measurement and compares it against the defined limits that you want to apply for your organization.

Keep in mind that body core temperature and skin temperature are not the same. The latter is lower than the body core temperature. You can find more information regarding this in the kit's user manual.

The sensor's operation is pretty simple: the person looks straight at the sensor within a 5 to 30cm / 2-12in distance. The bright sensor's led shows a white light when no one is in front of the sensor or when the subject is too far. When within range, the sensors scans the temperature every 0.6 seconds and the led will either turn green or red. Green means that you're OK. Red means that a potential elevated skin temperature was detected.

“The ServersCheck EST temperature screening allows us to give confidence in the way we make SABCA Covid-proof. It is important that we guarantee our employees a place safer than any other place outside. The system is easy to use and doesn’t require a complex installation. The latest version we got allows to scan many visitors in a short time, reliable and respecting the privacy rules”
Peter Reynaert Director R&D, Innovation at SABCA

SABCA is one of the main aerospace companies in Belgium. Founded in 1920, its main sectors of activity are civil aviation, space and defence.

You define the level of privacy that you need for your screening deployment. You can set it up as a self-screening station with no supervision with or without showing the temperature. You can also set it up with the temperature visible to the person or a supervisor (receptionist, security agent, ...). Optionally you can even enter the name of the person who was recorded so that you have an audit trail per scanned person. With the camera add-on you can store a photo of the scanned person along with their temperature data.

The kit includes following hardware with special modified firmware and software:

Optional add-ons:
  • Camera module to take snapshot of screened person with their temperature and time stamp
  • Tripod with mount adapter for the IR spot sensor
  • 21" Touch Monitor

This IR spot kit can be upgraded to the thermal kit (KIT-UPGRADE-IRTHERMAL)

AI Thermal Camera
for walk-through screening
Our thermal cameras are designed to monitor infrastructure and detect thermal runaways. They have onboard a series of sensors that you will find in our IR spot sensor. By adding a Flir thermal cameras and AI software, the kit no longer requires stopping for screening. With this thermal infrared camera it becomes a walk-through screening solition.

For this emergency application, we developed a solution based on our existing thermal camera sensors for critical infrastructure. With this new thermal camera based sensor we have made it a standalone device with AI software to focus on the human skin temperature range. Using its normal camera it provides a thermal overlay on top of the normal picture; augmenting the thermal resolution of 80x60.

Using special algorithms with special sensors, we are able to bring down the accuracy from the normal ±5°C to ±0.5°C at 37°C in a 20-25°C environment. This without requiring a black body. This makes the kit a cost effective solution to complement medical grade screening equipment and procedures. It does not replace such medical grade equipment.
Thermal Camera Sensor modified to monitor skin temperature on tripod

By default it returns the higest temperature it can find within the range of the human skin temperature. With the AI feature the software will scan for human faces and then identify the highest temperature within those faces. The AI software can also detect if someone is wearing a face mask or not. For privacy compliancy, the software can blur faces.

The thermal camera features a regular camera with thermal overlay for augmented thermal reality. It is powered via USB and communicates over USB with the OmniScreening.AI software. It can be mounted on a tripod.

The solutions have been designed with privacy at its core. Privacy requirements vary a lot by law and by workforce agreements. Our modular architecture makes it possible to cater for all possible privacy requirements: from completely anonymous self-screening without any data logging to a name and photo based with temperature data logging. You select the level of privacy you need for your organization.

Our feature comparison table can guide you in selecting the right solution with the right settings for your environment.

How it works
How the Covid-19 IR and thermal scanning solution works

The software scans with the IR spot or thermal camera for a human skin temperature range; which is typically between 33.6°C and 36.9°C. When a temperature is found that is above the user defined threshold, then an alarm is raised: visual (red) and audible (sound).

The OmniScreening.AI software ships with the Thermal Camera kit. This AI software enables to detect faces, mask wearing, blur faces for privacy compliance and perform thermal overlays.

Thermal camera and IR Spot directly connect onto the Monitoring Appliance's USB ports. They exchange data with the software on the appliance and receive power from it. It does not require a base unit to operate.

The Monitoring Appliance is a compact PC with Windows Enterprise IoT 10 preloaded. It can connect to a network using a regular RJ45 network cable OR via wifi. |br||br| The appliance can store all data from the camera, sensors for graphing and trending purposes. The appliance has 3 USB ports for the sensor, thermal camera and regular HD camera. It also has an HDMI port for a screen.
