Kentix SmartXcan Fever Screening Device Tested

By Derek Ward, Published Jun 22, 2020, 09:38am EDT

German manufacturer Kentix has declared "FEVER-SCREENING REINVENTED" with its new SmartXcan device. It is a different approach but how well does it work?

IPVM Image

We bought and tested the Kentix SmartXcan, analyzing:

  • Its accuracy compared to an IR thermometer.
  • How easy or hard it was to miss an elevated temperature
  • How much user height impacted measurement and usability
  • What impact ambient temperature had on measurement
  • How quickly can temperature measurements be made
  • What options exist to review part temperature measurements
