With the COVID-19 pandemic spreading the globe, HGH, a specialist in infrared test equipment, has seen a strong increase in its blackbodies sales. They are commonly used for the calibration and testing of thermal imaging cameras or IR single element sensors in production lines.
Main application of thermal imagers consists in screening for elevated body temperature. The detection of fever which is a key symptom of COVID-19 provides a datapoint that can help airports, hospitals, factories, hotels, or any high traffic places to prevent the spread of the disease. Indeed thermal cameras can ferret out sick people in a crowd by finding those who have elevated temperatures.
To be accurate in the temperature reading, a reliable thermal image across somebody’s face is needed.Calibrated at human fever temperature, HGH blackbodies are well known for their excellent radiometric qualities such as thermal uniformity, regulation stability and emissivity.
HGH is committed to serving its customers throughout the course of this pandemic and to provide continuity of service in the best respect of the guidance from French government and public health authorities.
Given the current situation, HGH strives to provide its customers with the best possible lead-time on infrared reference sources.
