Covid-19 can be easily spread from person to person through respiratory droplets created when the infected individual coughs, sneezes, talks, shouts and sings. The virus can also be transmitted by touching an object with the virus and then touching one’s face with unwashed hands. Since individuals can carry the virus and continue to spread without showing symptoms, it’s easy for people to take flights and go to airports without realizing they’re sick. Optris has created a fever inspection system to help prevent ill individuals from boarding flights, promoting safety.
Virus Epidemics Over the Years
Over the years, several viral epidemics have occurred, including the Swine Influenza in 2009 and the Ebola virus disease in 2014. Thus, high demand for a suitable screening technique for fast, non-contact detection of travelers with a potential fever was needed. With the Coronavirus spreading and the possibility of it appearing later in the year, it is critical to stop the spread through global flying.
How Do the IR Cameras and Software Work?
The software singles out the people whose skin temperature exceeds the pre-defined value. The visual alarm allows airport personnel to identify and isolate contaminated people from their co-travelers to conduct a medical examination discreetly. The temperature resolution of 0.1 C detects the smallest of temperature variances. The software does have the possibility to take automatic IR image snapshots when a person trips the alarm. The system is password-protected to prevent unauthorized changes.
The system is easily portable for fast setup and relocation. It only consists of 3 pieces of equipment and a software package.
- Process imager Xi 400 – Optris Xi 400 is an advanced IR camera. It is a compact size (it can fit in an adult’s hand). The 80 HZ frame rate allows for the monitoring of fast thermal processes, including a line-scan function.
