Black Box temperature-screening kiosks aid safer return to work

BDS-8 all-in-one solution boasts fast, contactless temperature measurement

Black Box, has introduced the first solution in its Return to Work suite, designed to help organisations and businesses in different industries provide a safer environment for their staff, visitors and customers. The BDS-8 Temperature Screening Kiosk is an all-in-one solution with fast, contactless temperature measurement and access control through facial recognition and mask detection.

Ideal for use in busy, crowded environments such as large business campuses, schools and universities, the kiosks can help businesses re-open after lockdown, resume activities and more safely welcome employees and customers back to the workplace.

Available in floor-stand, wall-mounted and tabletop models, the BDS-8 Temperature Screening Kiosk provides a contactless temperature reading in less than a second and displays a high-resolution image of the subject with temperature readout on an 8in LCD screen. This plug-and-play solution can be easily integrated with any door or ticketing system and also supports digital signage applications when not in use for screening.

“Entryway detection systems are not new, but they have traditionally been focused on facial recognition and identification for access control,” said Jonathan McCune, director of product management for AV and infrastructure at Black Box. “With the rise of Covid-19, there’s growing demand for a highly accurate, fast-deploying and easy-to-use solution that can rapidly identify people with elevated body temperature. BDS-8 offers the ideal solution by helping any type of organisation prevent entry by potentially infected persons. Businesses are able to maintain a safe work environment, reduce stress and anxiety for employees and visitors and ensure continuity of operations.”
