HEATDEC – Temperature measurement using thermal imaging camera

Contactless and automated measurement of body temperature to secure access areas and working premises

Companies and institutions are aming to provide the best possible protection against infection for employees and public traffic. An important element is the automated and contactless detection of elevated body temperature. Filtering potentially ill persons with increased frontal temperature before entering a building increases safety enormously. People with elevated body temperature should generally not stay in business premises. The German Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs recommends in the “Instructions for action in suspected cases” (SARS-CoV-2 Occupational Safety Standard, 04/2020) contactless fever measurement as a suitable measure for rapid clarification.

The HEATDEC temperature measurement system with its automated, contactless temperature evaluation enables simple detection with excellent result quality as a basis for targeted and rapid initiation of further measures. HEATDEC is available as a permanently installed version HEATDEC-Pro and as a portable variant HEATDEC-Basic with a stand. The technology is identical in both versions: The temperature distribution in the facial area is measured contactlessly by means of a thermal imaging camera and the result is shown directly on a display via the HEATDEC-Vision software.

The technology used was developed with a focus on scientific criteria in order to achieve a high degree of measurement reliability independent of external influences. This intelligent system includes environmental factors and fluctuations specific to the time of day in the evaluation. At the same time rights of persons are protected: no facial recognition or data storage takes place.

  • Delivery and commissioning on request
  • No face recognition – protection of personal rights according to DSGVO
  • Suitable for checking the absence of symptoms in accordance with the general ruling of the state of NRW “Corona AVPflege”
  • Suitable for implementing the instructions for action in suspected cases (SARS-CoV-2 occupational safety standard)



HEATDEC-Pro

Particularly in the access areas of factory premises, public spaces or care facilities such as retirement homes and homes for the elderly, a reliable statement about the body temperature of persons is relevant to safety. The measuring system evaluates the temperature distribution of a face and thus provides fast and reliable feedback. Depending on the result, additional measures can be switched via a relay. The system outputs the result via a display and acknowledges it – if desired – with a color and sound signal. The application scenarios and the resulting measures are manifold. Therefore, among other things, the limit value and feedback text are freely configurable.


Extendable complete solution

  • Extensions via relay circuit possible
  • Web service possible
  • Can be firmly fixed to the floor with screws
  • Sanitary cleaning thanks to stainless steel housing
  • Delivery and initialization on request

HEATDEC-Basic

The HEATDEC-Basic temperature measurement system enables automated, contactless measurement of body temperature and thus offers a simple and cost-effective solution for protecting access to workplaces and institutions from potentially infected persons. The easy-to-transport complete solution measures the temperature distribution in the facial area with a thermal imaging camera. The determined result is displayed on a tray. The system consists of a thermal imaging camera, a tripod and a tablet for analysis, configuration and feedback.


Inexpensive and transportable

  • Easy mounting with tripod
  • Tablet as display and for data analysis
  • With ball joint mounting for precise alignment

Software HEATDEC-Vision

The supplied HEATDEC-Vision software is compatible with Windows devices. During the measuring process, the software displays live the thermal image of the current measurement as well as a scale for interpretation of the image. A simple temperature measurement via averaging or maximum values is not sufficient to reliably detect persons with an elevated body temperature. The measuring system therefore evaluates the entire temperature distribution of a face and thus provides fast and reliable feedback. The technology used was developed with a focus on scientific criteria in order to achieve a high degree of measurement reliability independent of external influences. This intelligent system includes environmental factors and fluctuations specific to the time of day in the evaluation. Various parameters can be configured. The software is available in German and English.
