Aratek "Fever Detection" Terminal Tested

By Derek Ward, Published Aug 17, 2020, 09:43am EDT

Temperature tablets have performed badly in IPVM tests but our newest test of the Aratek BA8200-T is, so far, the worst.

IPVM Image

We tested the Aratek BA8200-T, answering the following:

  • How often did they miss elevated temperatures?
  • How accurate are measurements vs IR thermometer?
  • Can it measure taller and shorter people?
  • How does subject distance to the terminal impact temperature measurements?
  • How well does it measure with hats and hair covering the forehead?
  • How accurate is mask detection?
  • Do glasses/hats affect temperature measurement?
  • How much can users configure settings on the device? Can configuration be done remotely?

Other IPVM temperature tablet tests include:
