Thermal cameras for body temperature measurement - Covid-19: myths and frauds
We believe that no thermal camera can perform the very fashionable task of measuring temperature of several people autonomously; it will take a person to verify the temperature by traditional means.
Along with high precision in absolute temperature measurement, the thermography camera must have good measurement stability and repeatability. That eliminates low-cost cameras, say less than € 10,000. In addition, the environmental conditions, the distortion of the lenses, the distance from the person to the camera and many other factors make the measurement very difficult for one person and practically impossible for several. Even with the reference of a black body.
Neither the high-end VarioCAM cameras nor the very high-end (cooled) ImageIR cameras from our supplier Infratec are capable of doing the job on their own, nor are those of any manufacturer.
We do not intend to sell you our cameras but to avoid deceit or misunderstanding. If you want to develop a system based on a quality thermal imager then we can help you.
