Thermal Camera Imager for Fever Screening with USB Video Output - UTi165K

Product ID: 4579


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!

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 li-poly battery so it's fully portable. You can recharge it over USB.

We like these thermal scanners because:

This UTi165K version has real-time data transmission to a computer for analysis over USB. It also features three viewing modes: Thermal (infrared image), Digital (regular camera), and Fusion (a blend of the two). We also carry the UTi165H, which has only a thermal viewing mode and no USB output.

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

Technical Details

We've got a data capture, some extracted CSV data and a Beagle USB analyzer data dump here (The viewer for Beagle USB files is free and for all OS's)
