Acoustic measurement instrumentation manufacturer, Cirrus Research, has recently announced its latest product, the IR Sentinel. This device is a non-contact fever detection and facial recognition system that can be deployed to any indoor environment to test people’s temperatures as they enter the workplace.
The IR Sentinel uses German thermometry technology to detect a person’s temperature from up to two meters away, and if connected to an automated door entry or turnstile system, can also be used to allow or refuse someone entry based on their temperature. Cirrus Research hope that this system will help provide businesses with an added sense of safety and security as they attempt to navigate the route to reopening.
Head of Product Development, Mark Swale, said: “This system is what businesses are going to need as we move forward from the Covid-19 pandemic. The IR Sentinel is incredibly easy to set up and use. The level of build quality and accuracy it offers, provides business owners and their teams the reassurance they need as they start returning to work.”
Since 1970, Cirrus’ primary aim has been to protect people’s health and well-being in the workplace. They have always prided themselves on having the technical expertise to fulfil this through the design and development of scientific acoustic measurement equipment.
This move into temperature detection and facial recognition marks the shift from the 50-year pedigree of noise measurement that usually defines Cirrus Research. Head of Sales & Marketing, Martin Ellison explains this move:
“For several years, we’ve had the ability to work with technology other than noise measurement, as demonstrated by our recent work with a UK automotive testing ground, which involved designing, building and installing a bespoke system to capture environmental condition data.
“The challenges that the Covid-19 pandemic has presented have spurred us on to evolve this aspect of the Cirrus business into something more widely-accessible, in the hope that more people can get the answers they need to the questions they’re asking.”
With medical level accuracy (+/-0.3°C), infrared body temperature detection, and a read speed of 0.4 seconds, plus Cirrus’ UK sales and tech support, the IR Sentinel will help you be more prepared for a Monday morning than you’ve ever been.
