Suprema has announced the launch of the Suprema Thermal Camera that can be used in combination with FaceStation 2, its face recognition device, to detect users with elevated skin temperature.
Suprema Thermal Camera is expected to enhance security and safety at sites by combining face recognition and skin temperature measurement. Suprema solution has increased the accuracy and consistency of the temperature measurement by using the face recognition algorithm of the FaceStation 2 to pinpoint the upper area of the face. FaceStation 2 displays the skin temperature and thermal image of a subject’s face on its GUI, giving audio and visual alerts when higher than threshold temperature is detected.
Suprema Thermal Camera and FaceStation 2 can be configured differently for varying needs. It can be set to deny entrance of users with elevated skin temperature while the bypass mode will disable the face recognition feature and only admit users based on skin temperature. The system can also be arranged to trigger alarm and notifications to an admin when the measured temperature is higher than the preset threshold.
Using advanced thermographic technology, Suprema Thermal Camera measures temperature with 19,200 pixels per frame. With an accuracy of 0.5 degrees Celsius, Suprema Thermal Camera does not require blackbody reference for temperature measurement, improving ease of use. Temperature data, which can be displayed in both Celsius and Fahrenheit, can also be saved as event logs. Suprema’s Thermal Camera can be connected to FaceStation 2 via a USB cable, enabling deployment ease on new and retrofit installs.
