Telguard and AMETEK Land team up to bring the VIRALERT 3 integrated human body temperature screening system to the U.S. and Canada
Telguard, manufacturer of professional security and life safety communications products, 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.
The VIRALERT 3 builds on AMETEK Land’s experience with temperature technology. Developed over 10 years by AMETEK Land’s temperature monitoring experts, the VIRALERT 3 is a real-time scanning solution that’s designed to be safe, accurate, and easy to use.
The VIRALERT 3 includes an integrated camera and thermal imager, as well as a fixed blackbody reference source on a single mount. The system can be mounted and left to operate automatically, so as to not interrupt or slow 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’s accurate within 0.9 degrees Fahrenheit, 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,” said George Brody, president of Telguard.
