Temperature screening system launched to help safeguard sports and fitness clubs against COVID-19 transmission

Temperature screening system launched to help safeguard sports and fitness clubs against COVID-19 transmission
July 1, 2020

AMETEK Land, a leader in temperature monitoring, has launched VIRALERT 3 - a new human body temperature screening system which detect signs of elevated temperature, protecting people from potential carriers of infectious diseases including COVID-19. 

VIRALERT 3 will help to increase the confidence of facility managers by screening people coming into their premises as it detects signs of elevated temperature, protecting people from potential carriers of infectious diseases.

It provides an effective solution for scanning people entering sports and fitness facilities, where the risk of transmission may be high due to shared equipment.

Developed over 10 years by AMETEK Land experts, the VIRALERT 3 provides real-time infrared thermal imaging from a safe social distance, scanning for elevated temperatures that could indicate infection.

VIRALERT 3 is the first of its kind, providing a camera and a temperature-controlled reference source on a single mounting. Using automatic face detection, it locates the best areas for temperature detection, taking a reading that’s accurate to within 0.5 degrees Celsius, then calculating core body temperature through a rapid test procedure of approximately two seconds.  

It is designed to screen visitors at an entry point without slowing the flow of people, scanning temperatures without any person-to-person contact, keeping both parties safe from disease transmission. The VIRALERT 3 is easy to use and can be left to operate automatically, with audible and visual alarms alerting when high temperatures are discovered.  

To ensure the highest levels of accuracy and reliability, it has a blackbody calibration source fitted on the same platform as the integrated thermal imager/visual camera. This makes for a compact system that won’t get in the way of queueing people and can be easily wall-mounted.

The VIRALERT 3 builds on AMETEK Land’s proven expertise in temperature technology. The company has been developing high-accuracy infrared measurement instruments since 1947 and has been creating human body temperature screening systems since responding to the SARS outbreak of 2003.

Set up is simple; with no complex software configuration required, the system can be up and running within 30 minutes.
