Safe, accurate and easy to use temperature screening system

Safe, accurate and easy to use temperature screening system 1

Land Ametek’s VIRALERT 3 is a cost-effective solution for taking temperature while maintaining social distancing.  It is the first IR temperature monitoring system to provide a camera and a temperature controlled reference source on a single mounting.  This provides continuous calibration to ensure accuracy while keeping the system easy to use.  The thermal imaging and visual camera are in a single housing with an  installation time of less than 30 minutes by an untrained user.

Some unique advantages of this system include:

  • Quick and simple alerts: green for go, red for alarm display in less than 2 seconds
  • 1 week lead time
  • Single compact system and mount eliminate errors due to measurement distance
  • Can be used indoor or outside as reference standard can be adjusted to accommodate hot or cold ambient conditions

Technical Specifications

Accuracy: +/- 0.5⁰ C (+/-0.9 ⁰F) at a distance of 1 meter

Software: Continuous live thermal and visual impage with automatic face detection.  Abnormal high temperatures displayed in red, with on-screen and audio alarms.  Calculates core temperature from measured skin temperature.

Imager: Connects to a local PC for display and power.  Operates between 10-50⁰C (50-122⁰F)

Imager visual: CMOS color sensor 1.2MP (1280×960) resolution at 50 fps

Imager thermal: With a measurement range from 30-45⁰C (86-113⁰F), the imager has a 39 x 31⁰ field of view, frame rate of <9H and temperature resolution of <0.12⁰C (<0.22⁰F)

Blackbody reference source: Powered by a 5V DC (USB) from a universal power adaptor, the fixed temperature reference source is at 38⁰C (100.4⁰F) for a combined accuracy/stability of +/-0.2⁰C (+/-0.3⁰F)

Did you know… Cross Company is an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Our ESOP started in 1979 and as of 2006, we are 100% employee-owned! Learn more about our ESOP and how that benefits both team members and our customers.
Did you know... the precision measurement group at Cross was founded in 1939 by our current CEO's grandfather, Jim King. That's a whole lot of calibration!
Did you know... A fingerprint weighs about 50 micrograms. We know, we weighed it! The residue left from a finger can actually make a difference in weight results which is why we wear gloves when we calibrate weights. For reference, a sheet of paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
Did you know… Cross Company has grown significantly since our start in 1954. Over the years we've acquired 26 companies! Today, our five groups have expertise in everything from industrial automation to precision measurement, and industry knowledge going all the way back to 1939.
