Chauvin Arnoux launches its new CA 1900 thermal camera to instantly detect any abnormal fever.
“In the context of an epidemic or simply to anticipate any health risk, it is increasingly recommended to monitor body temperature by thermal camera. With the CA 1900 non-contact thermal camera, Chauvin Arnoux provides a simple, fast and practical response to easily and instantly detect whether employees or visitors have no abnormal fever , ” says one within the company.
Like an infrared thermometer, the thermal camera measures the temperature on the surface of a living being remotely and without contact. Both capture infrared radiation emitted (invisible to the human eye) by an individual in order to determine its temperature. The difference is that the non-contact thermometer will provide the temperature to a specific point, and not to a surface like the thermal imager can. In addition, the temperature measurement of an individual should be carried out at a distance of 5 to 20 cm while with an infrared body temperature measurement camera, the measurement can be done up to 1.5 meters away. . This reassures the operator who measures the temperature of several dozen people every day.
Thermography is considered a convenient and simple method for scanning both individuals and groups. The temperature is measured at the inner corner of the eye (more precise) or at the level of the forehead (more practical) and an alarm is triggered if it is outside a temperature threshold fixed by the operator or according to an average value of the temperatures measured on the six healthy people previously checked.
A quick temperature measurement
Because it is essential to facilitate the passage of people entering a production site, an office building, a public establishment, an airport or a train station, a shopping center, the temperature measurement must be very fast. The CA 1900 thermal camera performs the measurement in less than a second and instantly displays the temperature value. With a temperature measurement between +30 ° C and +45 ° C, this infrared camera guarantees a measurement with an accuracy of ± 0.5 ° C.
Without contact and respecting the recommended distance of 1.5 meters between the operator and the controlled person, this device measures and displays in real time on the screen the temperature of each individual.
Body or skin temperature, the operator can adjust the measured temperature value to compensate for the difference between the two types of temperature. Indeed, the cutaneous temperature measurement, that is to say at the level of the skin, has a value different from that normally observed with an ear, rectal or oral measurement. If the average body temperature is between 37 ° C and 37.5 ° C, that of the skin temperature is lower, between 30 and 36 ° C for an area of 15 cm. This difference should therefore be adjusted in order to obtain a more accurate “median” value.
In order to warn the operator of any abnormal rise in temperature, the CA 1900 infrared camera has two alarms, one audible, the other visual. The controlled individual is thus immediately identified. A reassuring alarm element for the one who takes the measurement.
The tripod insert as standard under the CA 1900 thermal temperature camera allows very rapid deployment, whatever the environment in which the device must be installed.
Thanks to its autonomy, the infrared thermographic camera CA 1900 ensures continuous operation for up to 9 hours.
