Q: How to ensure accurate measurement of temperatures? A: Behind accurate temperature measurement lies a solid understanding of infrared technology and its principles. When a non-contact device measures temperature, the IR energy emitted from the measured object passes through the thermometers optical system and is converted to an electrical signal at the detector. This signal is then displayed as a read of the temperature. Q: How are IR-thermometers working? A: IR thermometers detect invisible, naturally emitted infrared energy from all objects. Infrared radiation is a part of the electromagnetic spectrum, including radio waves , microwaves, visible light , ultraviolet, gamma, and X-rays. Q: How do we interpret a read of a front-free touch temp? A: In nearly all cases, temp is the equivalent of an oral reading. With children up to about 2-3 years of age, the reading of the forehead is essentially equivalent to an auxiliary time appropriately taken Q: What temperature is considered a fever? A: A temperature of over 38C (100.4F) is considered a fever for adults. Normal human temperature is between 36C and 37C. (96.8F till 98.6F). You can be considered to have low-grade fever if it is 37C to 38C For a child, 37.5C is considered a fever, and if the childs temperature is 38C and above you should definitely seek medical attention. Q: What is the benefit of using an Infrared Thermometer? A: Being a non-contact object, the chance of transmitting the infection or germs from one person to another is less. Unlike a contact thermometer, these thermometers dont have to be washed after every measurement makes these devices even suitable for bulk or professional monitoring of temperature.
