The CheckVue temperature sensing tablet is an adaptation to Crystal Display Systems’ existing range of commercial tablet devices, by the addition of a thermal imaging camera system to monitor the temperature of staff and visitors.
Coupled with a simple ‘App’ and a locked down operating system, the solution gives a standalone ‘out of the box’ first layer, zero contact, automatic temperature sensing system, at the entrance to a premises or threshold. The CheckVue works as a self-verification tablet on entry to a premises, the system monitors the temperature and informs the user of the result visually on the screen alongside an image of the user and a thermal map from the camera. Increasing hygiene and safety as no physical contact is necessary.

The system is calculated with an algorithm for object heat- and fast detection temperature-accuracy, tolerance at +- 0.5 degree Celsius, with a refresh rate at 64Hz for increased efficiency. CheckVue tablets are standalone automatic systems which are simple and intuitive to operate with Android 7.1, integrated USB connection and are available in 3 sizes – 10.1″, 15″ and 21.5″.
