Since the onset of the global pandemic there has been an increasing demand to protect facilities from community-based infections. Traditionally, entry point workers use hand-held thermometers to take guests’ temperatures, this contact-based method is outdated. Thermal imaging devices like the Macro Door Frame and the Tantum put a serious dent in the spread of infection due to their contact-less design.
Infrared thermometers use a lens to focus infrared light from one object onto a detector. This detector absorbs the infrared radiation and turns it into heat, the more infrared energy, the hotter the detector gets and that’s when they’re able to detect temperature of whatever object passes through.
Thermal imaging devices like The Macro & the Tantum allow facility managers to put a hard-stop to anyone who is entering the environment with a fever. The notification system and data tracking components of these devices allow managers to stay on top of who is in their facility in addition to keeping sickness out. Find out which one of these devices is right for your environment.
