Procurement Trends: Infrared Thermography - November, 2020
November 2, 2020 | Procurement Trends
IR thermography systems (IR cameras and thermal imaging systems) are used to measure a person's body temperature through non-contact screening. They produce a thermal image on a video monitor and provide an estimate of surface skin temperature based on a vendor's proprietary algorithm. A threshold temperature, mostly defined by the facility (such as 100.0° F), is selected as a cutoff for denying entry to the facility. Since temperature screening programs have become a common component of reopening strategies and COVID-19...
