Thermal Monitoring for an Added layer of Security

Thermal Monitoring for an Added layer of Security

Thermography is the study of heat distribution in objects, regions, and structures using infrared methodologies. Also known as thermal graphic imaging, thermography refers to when the heat of an object or objects is detected by a thermal imaging camera and displayed as an image or video.

None of these manufacturers or products claim the ability to identify or diagnose coronavirus or any other illness/disease, nor should they be used for medical purposes. One of the purposes is to show temperature fluctuations in relation to others within the sample population of coverage. Elevated body temperatures should be confirmed with secondary evaluation methods, such as medical grade contact thermometers. Public health officials should determine the significance of any fever or elevated temperature. WESCO and its supplier partners acknowledge that it is not possible to thermally exclude or detect an individual infected with coronavirus or experiencing coronavirus symptoms, or any other disease or illness. It is solely the responsibility of the end user to comply with any and all privacy rules, laws or regulations associated with the taking of temperatures of employees and individuals.
