FLIR Systems

FLIR Systems, Inc. announced the FLIR Screen-ESTTM software for FLIR T-Series, Exx-Series, and A-Series thermal imaging cameras. The software provides automatic measurement tools that perform elevated skin temperature screenings of individuals in two seconds or less at entries, checkpoints, and other high-traffic areas while maintaining recommended social distancing guidelines.

FLIR Screen-EST method

“Governments and businesses across the globe are hard at work developing new processes to ensure public health and safety from COVID-19, including the use of radiometric thermal imaging cameras as part of a comprehensive frontline screening programme,” said Jim Cannon, President and CEO at FLIR. “Now with FLIR Screen-EST software, those organisations can increase the speed and accuracy of frontline screening when using FLIR’s thermal cameras.”

FLIR Screen-EST software takes a skin temperature measurement near the tear duct of each person

FLIR Screen-EST software is designed to automatically take a skin temperature measurement near the tear duct of each person, the surface area most closely correlated to core body temperature. When used with T-Series, Exx-Series, or A-Series cameras, the software enables screening of individuals to occur 50 percent faster than FLIR Systems’ existing on-camera screening mode, accelerating throughput.

Thermal measurement solutions

If the software detects a skin temperature that exceeds a threshold set above the baseline average, Screen-EST will notify the operator and display or sound an audible alarm on the subject’s viewing monitor. The individual then should be directed to a secondary medical screening.

Honed through nearly two decades of experience designing and manufacturing thermal measurement solutions for skin temperature screening, Screen-EST automatically takes skin temperature samples at the screening location to determine an average skin temperature baseline. It then adds additional samples throughout the day.

Body temperature fluctuations

The software offers a plug-and-play connection and can be installed or removed within minutes

This relative temperature screening method helps accounts for regular body temperature fluctuations caused by natural biological and external environmental factors, thus reducing the number of inaccurate readings that can impact absolute temperature alarm systems. FLIR Screen-EST software is for Windows-based laptops and desktops. It offers a plug-and-play connection for FLIR thermal imaging cameras and can be installed or removed within minutes.

This provides additional flexibility for operators to easily move locations or to quickly detach the camera for other purposes, including facilities maintenance or machine inspection. FLIR Screen-EST software for T-Series cameras is available for purchase globally for $595 USD, 595€ EUR, and 499£ GBP in English only on FLIR System’s official website and through FLIR authorised distributors.

Screen-EST software for Exx-Series and A-Series will be available later this month. To learn more, one can visit the company’s official website.
