THE WORLD’S FAVOURITE 4G THERMAL PHONE COULD ALSO BE USED TO PROTECT US FROM COVID-19
Rugged 4G thermal phone is capable of instantly identifying people with a high temperature in crowds or places with a heavy footfall.
Originally designed to expose anomalies in temperatures for emergency services and construction professionals, it can easily be set up to highlight people potentially running an elevated temperature as they attempt to enter or pass through a congested public or commercial place.
Since the camera is integrated into a rugged smart phone it is an extremely easy-to-deploy protection device for businesses, community and family.
EASY TO USE MASS SCREENING DEVICE
A sensitive, handheld thermal camera designed to detect heat differentials at distance – it has the potential to be used by border guards, on buses, reception desks, personal protection screening of guests entering a home (particularly for especially vulnerable groups), care homes screening visitors, hotels etc.
DOING OUR BIT TO PROTECT COMMUNITIES
During this challenging time, we see this as our responsibility to do our bit to tackle the spread of Covid-19 using experience in thermal imaging technology that we have had in market for 4 years. We believe this to be a practical, fast and reliable mobile solution to allow preventative screening for people with unusually high temperatures as they enter anything from a small office or shop to a major transport network, stadium or prison. Those identified can then be tested medically and provided with the necessary assistance.
BENEFITS OF A SMART PHONE SOLUTION
Though standalone thermal cameras are available, the thermal camera integrated into the Cat S61 and also Cat S60 offer a number of key advantages:
Cat phones are military spec ‘rugged’ devices. Designed and built to be extremely tough and robust, making them suitable for use in any environment, indoors or outdoors.
They can be easily cleaned and disinfected and can be fully submerged in hot water with soaps, detergents or even bleach.
They are connected devices. As smartphones, thermal imagery or other data collected can, where necessary, be shared, streamed or screen-mirrored via WiFi or cellular data connections.
CAT® S61 SMARTPHONE
EASY TO USE MASS SCREENING DEVICE
1. Open the MyFLIR app
Mount phone into monitoring location / tripod that will allow people to pass by at a maximum of 1.5m away facing the camera as straight on as possible.
Set colour palette to ‘Iron’ if it is not already selected.
2. Tap the calibrate icon
Tap the temperature gradient icon (fourth icon in from top left) so the visible temperature bar appears to the right of the screen.
(top right icon) – the sensor will now automatically calibrate.
3. Tap the top temperature
Enter 34°C or 93°F and tap the tick icon to confirm. Tap the lower temperature at the bottom of the chart to edit and lock it. Enter 32°C or 89°F and tap the tick icon to confirm.
Wait for 2-3 minutes before use as the accuracy will increase as the sensor warms up.
The display will now only show temperatures between these two temperatures. Anything lower will be black, anything higher will be white. Anything showing up with a colour or white will be highlighting an elevated temperature.
This is a preliminary screening tool, not a medical diagnostic instrument. Thermal imaging sensor should not be used as a substitute for a medically certified thermometer.
