FLIR products are not medical devices and cannot diagnose coronavirus
infection. When configured correctly, the FLIR products discussed here can
identify individuals showing higher than average temperature relative to a
sample population. Only a licensed medical professional can determine if a
“hot” individual is experiencing an abnormal medical condition.
THERMAL CAMERA WITH SCREENING MODE:
The easiest FLIR EBT monitoring solution is a handheld camera in “Screening mode.”

Researchers have confirmed a correlation between the eye cantus temperature (tear duct area) and core body temperature. Accurate temperature measurement requires multiple pixels focused on a target area. Thermography experts
recommend cameras with minimum 320×240 pixel resolution and focusable optics for skin temperature measurements on such small targets.
Repeatable maximum temperature measurement is a function of distance, so EBT screening should be done on individual faces at a constant distance.
Higher resolution allows greater stand-off distance, especially considering
current CDC “social distancing” guidelines.
Screening Mode is available on ALL FLIR T-series and Exx-series handheld cameras.
