Naval Dockyard Mumbai, India Navy has invented Infrared based Temperature sensor indigenously. On Thursday Naval Dockyard Mumbai was reported this new invention by its Engineers who have developed a cost effective Infrared Temperature sensor similar to Temperature guns. Indian Navy's developed Infrared sensor instrument has been manufactured under 1000 Rupees through in-house resources, the report said.
The cost effective Infrared Temperature sensor instrument has been developed indigenously by Naval Dockyard and is said a fraction of the cost of the temperature guns in the market.
Based on report Indian Navy has designed and developed the Infrared Temperature Sensor for undertaking screening of a large number of personnel at the entry gates of the yard. To reduce the load of the security check-up by sentries at the gate said Indian Navy. It is home grown and indigenous Development and much cost effective Temperature Sensor and can be used for Covid19 patient screening, report added.
A black coloured gun type Infrared Temperature sensor is developed by Naval Dockyard Mumbai. On Thursday it was reported by ANI that it’s cost is determined only 1000 Indian National Rupees.
Naval Dockyard, Mumbai has designed and developed its own handheld IR based temperature sensor for undertaking screening of large number of personnel at the entry gates of the yard reducing the load on the security sentries at the gate. The instrument has been manufactured under Rs. 1000/ - through in-house resources (which is fraction of the cost of the Temperature Guns in the market). The ongoing pandemic of COVID-19 has led to one of the biggest medical emergencies the world has witnessed in the recent times. View massive surge in the number of infected patients, the medical infrastructure of the nation is being put to its ultimate test.
The 285 year old Naval Dockyard (ND) of Western Naval Command (WNC) has an average influx of around 20,000 personnel entering its premises every day. In view of COVID-19, initial screening of these personnel entering the dockyard was essential to prevent the spread of COVID-19 within the yard and the Western Fleet. The most preliminary method to screen a probable patient is to check for body temperature by a non-contact means.
Since the outbreak, the non-contact thermometers or temperature guns have become scarce in the market and are being sold at a very high cost. To overcome the scarcity and requirement of large numbers, ND (Mumbai) has designed and developed its own handheld IR based temperature sensor with accuracy of 0.02 deg Celsius. The non-contact thermometer has a Infrared sensor and an LED display integrated with a microcontroller which runs on a 9V battery.
The infrared Temperature Sensor is developed with home grown technologies and is Hundred percent indigenous said Indian Navy. It is a fraction of cost of other Temperature Sensor guns as it’s manufacturing cost is predicted RS 1000 Only.
