Elevated body temperature
measurement solutions.

Screening skin temperature accurately and quickly is highly important for public health and safety, especially during times of crisis or pandemic like COVID-19. Infrared technology is critical here, as it allows non-contact, quick, and efficient temperature screens. Infrared temperature scanners and other thermal imaging systems are critical to maintain safe work environments and public spaces by identifying individuals with elevated skin temperatures.

Whatever comes your way

How do infrared temperature screeners work in detecting temperature?

Infrared temperature screening systems use thermal imaging cameras and software to read skin surface temperature and calculate an estimated core body temperature. If that temperature is above a preset range, an alarm will sound to alert the elevated temperature.

What if someone has an elevated skin temperature?

If the thermal imaging system detects an individual has a high temperature, that person should be pulled aside for a secondary screening with a clinical thermometer.

How to Measure Body Temperature using a Thermal Camera

At ICI, we follow ISO/TR 13154 and urge our customers to as well. It’s the standard for using infrared temperature
scanners. This standard covers the deployment, implementation, and operational guidelines for identifying febrile humans using a screening thermograph.

  • Set up a screening site that’s indoors, away from A/C ducts and windows, and free from strong lighting or sunlight.
  • Make sure your temperature reference source is included in the camera’s field of view.
  • Screen individuals one at a time in a single file line.
  • Measure each person’s temperature from the inner canthus of the eye.
  • Watch the screen and listen for an alarm to sound if the system identifies an elevated skin temperature.

Screening is fast and easy, and our team will walk you through the proper setup.

Thermal Cameras vs. Infrared Thermometers

Infrared thermometers are a good first step for temperature screening, but thermal cameras are the best choice for a long-term and safe solution. Thermal cameras are significantly more accurate, allow safe social distancing, and enable you to screen more people faster.

Common questions from other customers.

Below are some commonly asked questions regarding infrared thermometers vs thermal cameras.

Can you take body temperature with an infrared thermometer or infrared camera?

Infrared thermometers can be used to measure body temperatures from up to 15 centimeters away from the target zone and provide results in less than half a second.

Infrared cameras measure the temperature of every pixel of the thermal image. They can do this from more than 3 meters away, making screens safe and sanitary.

Are infrared thermometers accurate?

ICI’s non-contact thermometers have a margin of error of ±.3 °C on skin surface temperature screenings. Infrared thermometers read the surface temperature of a target — not the internal temperature. This means that for skin temperature detection, an infrared thermometer can catch if someone has an elevated skin temperature, though this doesn’t necessarily indicate a fever.

How do I use a non-contact infrared thermometer?

To properly use a non-contact infrared thermometer to scan body temperature, stand 5 – 15 centimeters away from your target. Power on the device and point it at the inside corner of the patient’s eye, holding still. The temperature reading will display within 1 second. Many devices, such as ICI’s HotSpot IR, are battery-powered. You can set an alarm to sound when a temperature reading is abnormally high. ICI’s infrared thermometer powers off automatically and lets you choose between Celsius and Fahrenheit for readings.

Where do you take temperature with an infrared thermometer or thermal camera?

The best place to measure temperature from is the inner canthus of the eye — right in the inner corner. This is the hottest part of the human face.

Should I choose a thermal camera or a non-contact thermometer?

We recommend a thermal camera for temperature screening. Imagine having the power to see the temperature of thousands of spots (or pixels) rather than just a single spot. This is the difference between a thermal imager vs. an infrared thermometer.

For elevated temperature screening, access to this information is critical. If an operator misuses an infrared thermometer and points the device at a person’s forehead instead of the inside corner of the eye, the result will be a lower temperature. This could create a false negative if someone actually does have an elevated temperature. With a thermal imager, you see the whole picture and the temperature of every single part of a person’s face. Additionally, a red light/green light signaling system makes it incredibly easy to tell if someone has an elevated temperature.
