DW Elevated Skin Temperature System (E.S.T).

In accordance with the U.S. FDA’s COVID-19 Enforcement Policy criteria released in April 2020, the DW® E.S.T.™ is an NDAA/TSA and FDA compliant security-grade thermal camera that provides a low-impact, contactless alternative to traditional screening methods. At a distance of 6.5 ~16.4ft (10ft recommended), with ±0.2°C (±0.36°F) accuracy tolerance, the E.S.T. scanning solution provides a high degree of flexibility to meet the individual requirements of a wide variety of installations.

Instead of manually taking the temperature of every person entering a building, E.S.T. identifies people with elevated skin temperature so you can easily separate them for additional screening.

The system includes an E.S.T. Blackbody temperature sensor, a skin temperature scanner camera and a 2.1MP/1080p HD temperature camera, making it easy for users to quickly detect and identify any person that may require additional screening.



Smart auto-calibration with Blackbody sensor
The DW E.S.T. software automatically finds where the Blackbody is in the camera’s Field of View (FoV), self-calibrating in real-time based on the Blackbody’s set temperature. If the Blackbody moves, the software finds it automatically in the camera’s FoV.
High accuracy
The system provides a high accuracy thermal reading (+/-0.4°F, +/-0.2°C) thanks to its auto-detect blackbody technology.
Easy to setup
The DW E.S.T. System can be setup in minutes, visible or concealed from view. It can also be integrated into an existing access control solution using the alarm outputs at the back of the camera.
