How does it work?
Guests simply hold their wrist towards the machine to within 4” from the unit. The audio temperature guide will announce whether the temperature is within normal range or not. If the guest does not approach the unit in order to be measured or if the guest tries to use something other than their body the unit will sound an announcement for the guest to measure again. This is currently only type of equipment of this kind.
The infrared component was part of a larger unit and was retooled to be a more compact and portable unit. Melexis' new MLX90632 is a miniature infrared (IR) SMD thermometer IC for accurate medical grade (± 0.2 °C) non-contact temperature measurement, especially in thermally dynamic environments and when available space is limited. MLX90632, was recognized as the winner of the Excellence in Sensors Innovation (category) at Sensors Expo 2019 which highlights cutting-edge advancements and achievements that are moving the sensors industry forward. It was adapted recently in response to demand for mobile and compact measurement.
