The company I-care, based at Espaitec, the Science and Technology Park of the Universitat Jaume I, specialises in the predictive industrial maintenance sector. It has developed thermal cameras that can detect body temperature in workplaces. This is an ideal solution to be placed in entrances to firms to prevent people with a temperature from entering.

Its thermal (infrared) cameras immediately measure the body temperature of several people. Their measuring accuracy is +/-0.5ºC between 30ºC and 45ºC by controlling moderate increases in temperature. They can also indicate increased body temperature in the different people passing the cameras given their 160×120 thermal resolution detector.

It is noteworthy that I-care helps to configure these thermal cameras to connect them by wires or wireless networks on one of its screens. These cameras work very effectively against Covid-19 as they require no direct contact thanks to their Wi-Fi connection with a thermal detector.

I-care’s monitoring solutions: Wi-care and I-see

The company I-care has developed products for industry 4.0 maintenance. On the one hand, wireless Wi-care sensors that measure vibration, noise, temperature and speed in ball bearings by wirelessly transmitting data short and long distances in areas with and without obstacles. Sensors are ATEx/IECEx-certified and Plug&Play, which helps them to be relocated on other machines depending on each company’s requirements. It is worth mentioning that Wi-care sensors control equipment in remote or dangerous places, or wherever more thorough follow-up is required. They monitor the condition of each machine anywhere and run an instant remote analysis 24/day.

On the other hand, the I-see platform administers collected data by immediately accessing trend graphs, data analysis graphs, key performance indicators (KPIs) and reports. The data collected by the wireless sensors are stored in and administered to their cloud via the platform.

With today’s health crisis, I-care systems monitor from a distance the condition of rotative equipment in industry and the health status of people who work to lower the likelihood of contagion on premises and to maintain machines operating efficiently and, above all, securely.
