Telguard Unveils Integrated Body Temperature Screening System
The VIRALERT 3 is a real-time, all-in-one body temperature monitoring solution with an integrated camera and thermal imager.
ATLANTA — Telguard, a leader in security and life safety communications, announces it is partnering with sister company AMETEK Land to offer the VIRALERT 3 integrated human body temperature screening system as part of its security distribution channel offering.
The VIRALERT 3 is a non-contact temperature monitoring camera that detects body temperatures as people enter a building while maintaining appropriate social distancing.
AMETEK Land has been developing high-accuracy infrared measurement instruments for more than 70 years. Developed over 10 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, according to the company.
The VIRALERT 3 provides an all-in-one solution with the integrated camera and thermal imager, as well as the fixed blackbody reference source on a single mount. The compact system can be mounted and left to operate automatically without interrupting or slowing down the flow of people into a building.
Using automatic face detection, VIRALERT 3 determines the best location for a skin temperature reading and then calculates core body temperature. It is said to be accurate within 0.9°F at a distance of 3.4 feet (one meter). Audible and visual alarms will alert when elevated temperatures are discovered. VIRALERT 3 is fully compliant with the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
“The new VIRALERT 3 system has a wide range of applications, from hospitals to transportation, retail, office and manufacturing. We are excited to be able to offer security dealers and integrators this new solution as they support the reopening of the U.S. and Canada,” says George Brody, president of Telguard.
