The Most Advanced IR Thermometer - Made in USA

Breakthrough Technology For Enhancing Accuracy Of Infrared Thermometers

Traditional infrared thermometers scan your forehead to measure skin temperature. But does forehead temperature tell us anything about core body temperature, the true sign of fever? In most cases, NO! Especially in cold-weather countries where people coming in from the extreme cold outdoors will have far lower skin temperature than core body temperature.

Introducing OPX Technology by FeverWarn

OPX Technology uses multiple geometric spatial sensors and AI-based algorithms to extend the ambient range of infrared thermometers and scanners by up to 50%—making hand-held forehead scanners obsolete.

IR Thermometer

The problem is, forehead or skin temperature can be increased or decreased independently of deep body temperature, for many reasons. Having just been in a cold or hot environment, sunburn, having just exercised, wearing too many clothes, having consumed alcohol, having just eaten, having a variety of skin conditions — these can all influence skin temperature. Such factors can result in false positives, where someone is suspected of having a fever when they do not, and false negatives, where someone passes a screening test but has a fever.

Neither outcome is good. The former means people will have to be checked further or prevented from doing things. The latter means infected individuals gain access to places where they can spread the infection, or feel they are virus-free so do not need to take other precautions, such as mask-wearing, social distancing, or washing their hands.

False Positives
False Negatives

The new technology consists of new spatial geometric sensors combined with an artificial intelligence algorithm to filter out the effects of cold or hot weather. FeverWarn’s OPX technology is so ahead of its time, it even can help indirect or direct sunlight interference which has been an issue for handheld infrared thermometers and forehead scanners previously.

Why FeverWarn is Best Among Infrared Thermometers

There’s Lots of Ways to Measure Temperature…But Few Include All the Advantages of FeverWarn.

Accuracy. Reliability. Simplicity. Safety

FeverWarn is ideally designed and positioned to offer advantages in self-service monitoring, proven accuracy, data storage and USB outputs all at a reasonable price and easy installation over alternative infrared thermometers. Like all IR thermometers outdoor use is not recommended and it should be installed inside.

FAQ on OPX Technology by FeverWarn

  • How does external weather affect an infrared thermometer?

    Traditional infrared thermometers that point at your forehead are only measuring your skin temperature to try to identify whether you have an increased core body temperature (also called deep body temperature), which is a true index of fever, one of the leading signs of Covid-19. Extreme hot or cold weather changes your skin temperature but not your core body temperature, thereby giving false positives and false negatives in fever scans.

    https://machinesense.com/blogs/news/how-does-external-weather-affect-an-infrared-thermometer

  • How can you verify that an Infrared Thermometer is Accurate?

    Take your temperature in a normal indoor setting using a forehead infrared thermometer. Then spend some time outside in extreme cold weather or sit next to source of heat for a while, and then again take your temperature. You will see that your forehead temperature has changed within a matter of minutes. This will show you that the traditional forehead infrared thermometer that you are using is only reading your skin temperature, but not your core body temperature which is the true index of a fever. A FeverWarn infrared thermometer with OPX technology, which takes your fist/wrist temperature, will give you a consistent read of your temperature proving its accuracy at determining core body temperature in all settings.

  • Which Handheld Thermometer Is Best For My Business?

    For any business, a few factors are very important when it comes to scanning for fever at entry points: - That the method be self-service as opposed to requiring manpower, so that costs are minimized; - That the reading be accurate without false positives and false negatives so that liability is reduced and safety is increased; - That the fever scanning tool ideally have the ability to handle recording of data as well as integrations for automatic operation of entry and exit doors. All of the above features are not available in traditional hand-held, forehead-based, infrared thermometers. Only a FeverWarn self-service, infrared thermometer with OPX technology has the ability to deliver on all the above requirements.

  • Are infrared thermometers accurate in cold weather?

    No. The Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health noted years ago that “the accuracy of infrared skin thermometers is equivocal and requires more research”.The problem is traditional infrared thermometers used on the forehead only read your skin temperature. And forehead or skin temperature can be increased or decreased independently of deep body temperature, for many reasons. Having just been in a cold or hot environment, sunburn, having just exercised, wearing too many clothes, having consumed alcohol, having just eaten, having a variety of skin conditions — these can all influence skin temperature, thereby making a regular infrared thermometer inaccurate.
