COVID-19: prevention measures with infrared digital thermometers

Measuring the temperature of patients is becoming increasingly important to recognize the symptoms of COVID-19. How can this activity be carried out safely?

The future depends on what we do today

Carlo De Giorgi is keen to protect his customers and for this reason we have taken steps to identify and make available products which are both useful and certified in order to support all those who need these instruments. In this article we will show you the features of the infrared digital gun thermometers, how they work and why they can support your work, especially in these times.

Why we chose the infrared thermometers

In continuous search for certified equipment capable of guaranteeing the safety of our customers during their work, we have identified the infrared thermometers among the useful products in this emergency period.

We have chosen these thermometers because they allow you to carry out daily activities and to measure the body temperature by minimizing contact with the individuals. In fact, it’s not necessary to approach the person in question to detect his temperature since the thermometers use infrared technology to read the data.
In addition to this, the measurement period of time have been also drastically reduced, thus promoting the operator’s safety.

How they work

The digital infrared gun thermometers measure thermal radiation, that is, the heat emitted by a body. Thanks to the technology that makes them digital, it’s possible to collect data on the dispersion of a person’s electromagnetic radiation, without the need to touch it.

But this is not the only fact that is taken into consideration by digital infrared gun thermometers. Since each body emits heat differently, thermometers also analyze the reflected radiation and the radiation transmitted to establish the temperature of the individual.

The advantages of digital infrared gun thermometers

  • easy reading thanks to the LCD display
  • speed in measurement
  • precise and reliable
  • the acoustic signal at the end of the measurement
  • Compliant with CE regulations.
