Handheld Thermal Imaging
Here at Sygma we have been running a full service throughout the lock down period due to our obligations to install and maintain security equipment to many of the countries police establishments and hospitals. So all credit to our engineers and staff who have worked tirelessly in the field and at home to ensure we provide a round the clock unbroken service.
However with the lockdown easing and many offices, retail establishments, manufacturing plants and schools preparing to return to work, there is going to be a requirement to ensure that staff and children are as safe as possible. Thermal cameras can help with this process by recording temperatures above a fixed range, but they are fixed and need to be connected to a recording a device which can be costly.
A much cheaper and flexible alternative to a fixed thermal camera is a hand-held device, with no recorder required, so no GDPR issues, it's a simple case of set the camera for 37.5 degrees, point at staff member's forehead, and if the camera alarms, use a secondary medical thermometer to double check!
