Telpo China Temperature Tablets Tested

By Isabella Cheng and Derek Ward, Published Aug 10, 2020, 10:34am EDT

The provider for overseas companies ranging from Canon Singapore to US' PopID, Telepower Communication Co., Ltd (Telpo), is offering a line of 10+ fever detection devices. But how well do they work?

IPVM Image

We tested the Telpo TPS980T, with a 32x32 thermophile, and the TPS950T, with a 16x12 thermophile, examining:

  • How often did they miss elevated temperatures?
  • How accurate are measurements vs IR thermometer?
  • How does performance differ between the TPS980T and TPS950T?
  • Can it measure taller and shorter people?
  • How does subject distance to the terminals impact temperature measurements?
  • Do environmental factors impact performance?
  • How well does it measure with hats and hair covering the forehead?
  • Is the device's mask detection easily spoofed?
