A non-contact thermometer, Infra Temp promises safer workplaces and households
COVID-19 has brought about some instrumental changes in our lifestyles. And with no immediate sign of it abating anytime soon, even governments have said that we need to adopt an evolved lifestyle. Wearing a mask or measurement of body temperature at public places are just few of the measures to stay safe. In sync with this trend, a new non-contact thermometer has arrived that promises safer workplaces and households.
French consumer technology firm Zoook has made available its contact-less medical grade thermometer developed in accordance with the requirements in the wake of Covid-19. The infrared digital dual mode thermometer, named Infra Temp, enables quick detection of the temperature of a body or a surface. Without touching the surface, it acquires accurate temperature reading within one second.
The non-contact thermometer, which comes with one-year warranty, has an inbuilt alert mechanism and rings an alarm if temperature is beyond permissible limit. Also part of the mechanism is light-based alerts, wherein screen light turns white, orange and red for normal temperature, high temperature and fever, respectively. To ease screening process at workplaces, the Infra Temp is further capable of storing upto 30 groups of measurement readings. This large storage capacity would act as a ready reckoner of employees’ temperature records for a company. The temperatures can be taken and recorded in both Celsius as well as Fahrenheit, as per the requirement and the on-screen menu gives an option to change the units.
Special focus has also been given to the look of the apparatus. Infra Temp comes with a tri-colour backlit LCD screen, and the large screen display is aided by a bright white backlight, making the readings easily readable even during night hours. The latest offering by ZoooK is further equipped with an intelligent shutdown system, which means it shuts down automatically when not in use. Ultra-low power consumption, power display and low-power reminder add to the virtues of the device, which has IPXD protection against liquid penetration. All we need are two AAA batteries to keep Infra Temp functional.
Achin Gupta, country head-India, Zoook, says: “While there are other similar products in the market, it is Infra Temp’s accuracy and user friendly attributes that make it the perfect choice in the current scenario.”
