Stay safe with smart fever-screening solutions

Datacentrix, a secure information and communications technology solutions provider, has launched new thermal-measurement methods for the simultaneous measurement of many individuals’ temperatures.

“The gradual relaxation of lockdown regulations, as per President Ramaphosa’s recent address, which established five lockdown levels, means that several industries have resumed operation from the beginning of May,” says Johann Coetzee, managing director of commercial and technology solutions at Datacentrix.

He explains that, as a trusted advisor to many South African public and private companies, Datacentrix has expanded its existing continuous services offering to include smart-fever screening solutions.

“Datacentrix is doing all that it can to assist businesses to tackle the new, post Covid-19 normal. In line with this approach, we have introduced all-inclusive thermal measurement technology suitable for high crowd-density areas and public facilities with multiple access points,” he says. “These solutions include fixed, long-range fever screening and a hand-held patrolling option, for fast, precise temperature measurement of crowds.”

The company’s offering comprises: a hand-held thermographic screening solution, for inspections and spot-checks, working from a distance of 1,5 to three metres; a long-range turret or bullet camera, to identify and track individuals with higher body temperatures from between 4,5 and nine metres;  and a calibrator that can increase temperature measurement accuracy from around 0,5 to 0,3°C.

Features include:

• Simultaneous screening: Scan up to 30 individuals concurrently;

• AI-detection: Body detection is powered by artificial intelligence, reducing the number of false alarms;

• Advanced algorithms: Temperature measurement algorithms achieve highly reliable, accurate results;

• Bi-spectrum monitoring: The display window includes both thermal view and optical images, including the event details with the temperature measurement;

• Quality images: Detailed images are provided in high resolution;

• Maximum temperature tracking: A moving cursor tracks an individual’s hottest spots;

• Wi-Fi enabled: Supports Wi-Fi connectivity to smartphones, PCs or notebooks; and

• Security: User authentication, encryption, access control and IP address filtering.

Says Coetzee: “The new solution from Datacentrix will help to eliminate the long queues and increased risk of infection associated with time-intensive, manual temperature measuring, assisting companies to take a reliable and effective line of defence against Covid-19 as multiple industries gear up for a return to work.”
