Increasing demand for thermal imaging cameras, due to COVID-19

28 May 2020


As the coronavirus pandemic continues to impact the way we do business, Swiss company, Hilpert electronics, the official sales partner for the German-speaking sales region of Nippon Avionics Co, has reported increased demand in recent weeks for the Japanese manufacturer’s thermal imaging cameras, which it also distributes.

"Up to now, we have sold the thermal imaging cameras in limited numbers to customers wanting to monitor soldering and welding processes, or who have used the cameras to monitor installations in the service area. But in the course of the current coronavirus crisis, the demand pattern and target groups have changed," explains Raphael Burkart, Managing Director of Hilpert AG.

For example, an increasing number of enquiries were made as to whether Avio systems could also be used to measure the temperature of people in order to try and identify coronavirus infected individuals from a distance, based on their body temperature. Since Avio's systems can be used for this purpose, sales have increased noticeably in recent weeks. "Many customers are now using thermal imaging cameras for entrance control in sensitive areas, for example," says Burkart.

Hilpert offers various thermal imaging cameras from Avio in its portfolio, such as the Thermo FLEX F50, a two-piece thermal imaging camera in mobile phone format. The FLEX F50 was originally designed for use in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, building services, and so on. It is known for its high flexibility, since camera and camera display can be separated from each other.

In addition, Hilpert can also offer classic thermal imaging camera systems, such as the InfReC R450, InfReC R550 and InfReC Thermo GEAR. These are infrared cameras with high resolution, high sensitivity and high precision. Stationary camera systems are also available, such as the InfReC TS600, which is used wherever permanent observation or surveillance is required, for example, in access areas of industrial companies, hospitals, airports and the like. Due to its compact design and low power consumption, the device can be implemented, mounted and integrated flexibly.
