Optris fever inspection system to prevent sick people flying

13.10.2014

The Ebola fever and other diseases are highly dangerous and transferred by sick people or contaminated objects. In our global world airplanes are one way to export this virus all over the world.

Africa for instance has around 60 airports so it’s an important international challenge to prevent sick people flying. For this purpose you can use Optris’s fever inspection system.

Virus epidemics like the Swine influenza in 2009/2010 and the Ebola virus disease in 2014 created a worldwide demand for suitable screening techniques allowing a fast non contact detection of travellers with potential fever.

The installation of the whole system including the infrared camera and its extensive software package is very easy. Also it can be re-located and set up in minimum time. The system is password-protected to prevent unauthorised changes.

Because of a reference radiator built into the infrared camera there’s an automatic and constant IR calibration of the camera itself. The temperature resolution of 0.1°C detects the smallest of temperature variances.

The system works discreetly. The software singles out the people whose skin temperature exceeds the predefined value. The visual alarm gives airport employees the possibility to identify and isolate suspects from their co-travellers so that a medical examination can be done discreetly.

If necessary the software offers the possibility to take automatically IR image snapshots when a person trips the alarm.

The system is available ex stock and can be delivered within one week. Scope of supply: USB camera incl. 1 lens, USB cable (1 m), table tripod,software package optris PI Connect, aluminum case. Price from 2,690 Euro including software.

Im Focus: Electron cryo-microscopy: Using inexpensive technology to produce high-resolution images

Biochemists at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) have used a standard electron cryo-microscope to achieve surprisingly good images that are on par with those taken by far more sophisticated equipment. They have succeeded in determining the structure of ferritin almost at the atomic level. Their results were published in the journal "PLOS ONE".

Electron cryo-microscopy has become increasingly important in recent years, especially in shedding light on protein structures. The developers of the new...

Im Focus: The spin state story: Observation of the quantum spin liquid state in novel material

New insight into the spin behavior in an exotic state of matter puts us closer to next-generation spintronic devices

Aside from the deep understanding of the natural world that quantum physics theory offers, scientists worldwide are working tirelessly to bring forth a...

Im Focus: Excitation of robust materials

Kiel physics team observed extremely fast electronic changes in real time in a special material class

In physics, they are currently the subject of intensive research; in electronics, they could enable completely new functions. So-called topological materials...

Im Focus: Electrons in the fast lane

Solar cells based on perovskite compounds could soon make electricity generation from sunlight even more efficient and cheaper. The laboratory efficiency of these perovskite solar cells already exceeds that of the well-known silicon solar cells. An international team led by Stefan Weber from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz has found microscopic structures in perovskite crystals that can guide the charge transport in the solar cell. Clever alignment of these "electron highways" could make perovskite solar cells even more powerful.

Solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. During this process, the electrons of the material inside the cell absorb the energy of the light....

Im Focus: The lightest electromagnetic shielding material in the world

Empa researchers have succeeded in applying aerogels to microelectronics: Aerogels based on cellulose nanofibers can effectively shield electromagnetic radiation over a wide frequency range – and they are unrivalled in terms of weight.

Electric motors and electronic devices generate electromagnetic fields that sometimes have to be shielded in order not to affect neighboring electronic...
