FEM is now supplying the non-contact infrared forehead thermometer from San Jamar.
It’s a solution for businesses and organisations looking for a simple, safe method of identifying at-risk members of staff.
The thermometer is a handheld unit, and uses a patented infrared sensor probe which measures heat radiation emitted by the forehead from a 5-8cm range. Designed for ease of use, taking a reading is controlled via a single button.
The result is displayed on a large LCD screen along with either a green, yellow or red light corresponding to normal, elevated and high temperature.
Furthermore, if the temperature measured is above a certain threshold an integrated alarm sounds. The three elements of alarm, coloured lights and the display provide immediate and clear indication of a potential fever.
Mark Hogan, commercial director of FEM said: “The San Jamar thermometer will allow businesses to take actions to protect their staff and customers, based on accurate and reliable information.
“The importance of maintaining a hygienic and safe working environment is one of the highest priorities for the foodservice and catering sectors, even more so during the pandemic. The San Jamar forehead thermometer is a simple, robust and accurate method of quickly identifying staff members at risk of fever.”
