Telpo launches low-power contactless body temperature screening terminal for workforce management
Telpo has unveiled a non-contact infrared thermometer that it says features high performance with low power consumption and cost, which the company says can help businesses adapt their processes to handle the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The new B5 system developed by Telpo runs on an ARM 32-bit Cortex-M0 CPU, with power consumption as low as 9 A/MHz, a compact design, and user-friendly operation, according to a company announcement.
The scanner performs rapid body temperature measurement within one second from the subject’s forehead, from a distance of 10 to 30 centimeters, with accuracy within 0.3 degrees Celsius.
Temperature data is displayed by the B5 as it is read, along with a voice and visual light notification of health status.
The device includes Bluetooth connectivity for timely reporting of temperature data for remote monitoring, along with a built-in 2000mAH battery and USB port to ensure a continuous power supply. The B5 supports plug and play deployment, and can be left on automatic standby for 24-hour use.
Businesses can use the B5 to perform attendance and access control functions, with storage of more than 30,000 staff records, making it suitable for offices, conference halls, retail stores, hotels, libraries and schools among other locations, Telpo says.
Telpo also recently launched three new biometric terminals to perform facial recognition in outdoor and indoor environments.
