Meditherm 520
Temperature Screening Station

Stable Temperature Screening

The Meditherm 520 is a complete temperature screening system. The system monitors temperatures, displays thermal images and gives an alarm when a temperature exceeds the chosen threshold.  The temperature alarm threshold can be set to automatic mode or manual mode to accomodate the operator's preference. The camera operates at realtime update rates, and displays images in color on a flat panel display. Temperature resolution is <0.25°C. The camera is compact and rugged, and the system is designed to operate 24/7. If needed, a weatherproof option is available. The easy-to-use interface assures non-technical users can successfully operate the system.


  • Realtime screening means no need for queues.
  • Simple user interface allows anyone to quickly become proficient at operating the system.
  • Visible and audible alarms permit fast identification of alarm sources.
  • Stable calibration over ambient temperature changes ensures excellent measurement repeatability.
  • User can configure software as desired through a password protected graphical interface.
  • Alarm threshold can be adjusted manually or automatically.
