Flir Thermal Cameras for body temperature screening

Posted on

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.  


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.
