Thermal camera for detecting abnormal body temperatures

25 November 2020 Test & Measurement

Because measuring a person’s body temperature is a major issue in the news at the moment, Chauvin Arnoux is launching the CA 1900 thermal camera, a new health tool for identifying anyone with an excessively high temperature in order to combat epidemics.

A thermal camera is a simple, effective instrument for quickly identifying anyone suffering from a fever. In the context of a wider set of precautionary measures, each employer can organise temperature testing of the people who enter their sites.

The CA 1900 can be used to measure human body temperature with an accuracy of ±0,5°C and a temperature range from +30°C to +45°C. Thanks to its tripod insert supplied as standard beneath the camera, it is very easy to install long-term in a fixed position, such as a factory entrance, for example. In addition, by maintaining a distance of 1,5 metres between the operator and the person tested, there is no risk of contamination.

Skin and body temperature measurement is instantaneous, allowing people to pass through quickly and smoothly, without wasting time. An audible and visual alarm immediately informs the operator that a person is potentially sick via a Bluetooth earpiece supplied with the camera.

The operator can choose to detect high temperatures either on the basis of a fixed threshold which he/she defines beforehand, or on the basis of an average (calculated automatically by the camera) of the previous six healthy people tested. The camera’s design ensures a comfortable grip, and its screen is equipped with automatic brightness adjustment, a field of view of 38° x 28° and a focus-free function so that the image remains sharp whatever the distance.
