FLIR launches new temperature screening solution
FLIR Systems announced the FLIR Elara FR-345-EST, a fixed-mount radiometric thermal security camera that measures elevated skin temperature (EST) without contact or the need for a reference temperature source. The Elara FR-345-EST guides to the part of the body that most closely correlates to core body temperature: the inner-canthus—or the inner eye of a human face.
Through integrated algorithms and a convolutional neural network (CNN), as individuals pass through the screening process the interactive on-screen prompts assist with eyewear identification, proper pose, positioning, and head orientation. This enables the camera’s on-edge artificial intelligence to automatically locate and measure the temperature at the inner canthus within an accuracy of +/- 0.5° C (+/- 0.9° F).
According to a company statement, the AI capabilities with the on-camera software also improves the screening assessment time to an average of one-second-per-individual after the subject is in a stationary position in front of the camera and once eyewear has been removed, helping to keep lines of workers, spectators, guests, students and patients moving and to eliminate any potential crowding at checkpoints.
The camera can also be customized to meet specific integrator or customer needs. In addition, FLIR offers extended training and support for customers and users to properly setup, operate and maintain the system.
The Elara FR-345-EST is available globally starting today through authorized dealers.
