Thermal Camera Imager for Fever Screening - UTi165H

  • Description-


    This video camera takes photos of temperatures! This camera is specifically tuned to work in the 30˚C~45˚C / 86˚F~113˚ F range with 0.5˚C / 1˚ F accuracy, so it's excellent for human temperature & fever detection. In fact, this thermal camera is often used by companies/airports/hotels/malls to do a first-pass fever check: If any person has a temperature of over 99˚F an alarm goes off so you can do a secondary check with an accurate handheld temperature meter.

    You may have seen thermal 'FLIR' cameras used to find air leaks in homes, but those cameras have a very wide temperature range, so they're not as accurate in the narrow range used for fever-scanning. This camera is designed specifically for that purpose!

    We like these thermal scanners because:

    • They are surprisingly accurate
    • Work great at up to ~10 meter distance
    • No Internet connection needed - completely standalone functionality
    • Does not use face recognition to identity of persons
    • Can run on rechargeable battery for many hours or plugged in
    • Works as good as "$5000 machine learning" setups at a fraction of the cost

    There's a color 2.8" 320x240 TFT screen which gives real-time temperature readings from an interpolated 160x120 thermal resolution, with hot-spot temperatures labeled. You can also set temperature ranges for alerts, F or C units, color palettes, etc. There's a built-in lipoly battery so it's fully portable, you can recharge it over USB.

    You can also capture images and measurements and transfer them to your computer via USB type C or SD Card.
