VIRALERT 3 - Human Body Temperature Screening System (Visual & Thermal)

VIRALERT 3 - Human Body Temperature Screening System
Safe, accurate temperature screening you can trust, designed to keep people safe wherever they are.
  • Overview +

    Unlike handheld thermometers which compromise social distancing, the VIRALERT 3 automatic screening system scans from a distance that complies with social distancing. Visual and audible alerts provide the warning you need to keep everyone safe.

    Developed over ten years by AMETEK Land’s world-leading temperature monitoring experts, the VIRALERT 3 is a real-time scanning solution that’s safe, accurate, and easy to use.

    ACCURACY - ±0.5 °C (±0.9 °F) at a distance of 1m.

    Offices and ManufacturingSOFTWARE - Continuous live thermal and visual image with automatic face detection. Abnormal high temperatures displayed in red, with on-screen and audio alarms. Calculates core temperature from measured skin temperature.

    IMAGER - 
    Connects to a local PC for display and power needs. Operates between 10 to 50 °C (50 to 122 °F).

    CMOS colour sensor 1.2 MP (1280x960) resolution at 12 fps.

    IMAGER THERMAL -With a measurement range between 30 to 45 °C (86 to 113 °F), the imager has a 39x31° field of view, frame rate of <9Hz, and temperature resolution of <0.12 °C (<0.22 °F).

    Powered by 5V DC (USB) from a universal power adaptor, the fixed temperature reference source is at 38 °C (100.4 °F) for a combined accuracy/stability of ±0.2 °C (±0.3 °F).
