Seek Scan Thermal Skin Temperature Unit(USA)
How accurate is Seek Scan?
Seek Scan has ± 0.3°C (0.5°F) measurement accuracy aimed at an object with a temperature that is known and stable, such as a Fixed Heat Source (also known as a black body). Unlike typical industrial thermal cameras, Seek Scan was developed and calibrated for precise skin temperature measurement and maximizes accuracy by referencing the Fixed Heat Source with a known temperature value. The system sensitivity is 40 mK (typical)
Seek Scan is specifically designed and calibrated to deliver accurate skin temperature measurements while enabling social distancing protocols. In seconds, the system automatically detects a face, identifies the most reliable facial features for measurement, and displays an estimated body temperature. A visual and audible alert is provided if someone is warmer than the customizable alarm temperature.
Unlike typical industrial thermal cameras, Seek Scan was developed for precise temperature measurement and maximizes accuracy by referencing a fixed heat source with a known temperature value. Seek’s patent-pending heat source allows Seek Scan to achieve much higher accuracy than a standard thermal imaging camera designed for industrial use.
The Seek Scan process provides an additional layer of preventive screening and can deliver more peace of mind to businesses, institutions and participants.

Here are a few things to know about skin temperature measurement:
- Skin temperature is typically a few degrees less than body temperature. Similar to an infrared temporal thermometer, Seek Scan uses skin temperature to provide an estimated body temperature.
- Seek Scan is programed to measure the most reliable parts of the face to produce the best results with high accuracy.
- A person’s skin temperature may vary based on a variety of circumstances such as ambient temperature, sweat and eyewear. For this reason, Seek Scan is indented for indoor use only and in environmentally controlled rooms.
- Distance is critical to performance. We recommend marking the floor with tape or decals to ensure all subjects are measured from the exact same distance and while positioning the subject next to the heat source.
