Overview of the Axis Q2901-E

Call for availability prior to ordering

Part of the high-performance Q29 series, this network camera from Axis utilises Grekkom’s HTC (Human Temperature Control) for the measurement of increased temperatures within an indoor location - such as for individual temperature reviews. Additional features of this network camera include support for edge storage with MicroSD card (not included) and the option of two different lens sizes (please select in dropdown above).

By reading and analysing several common facial hotspots (including eyes, cheeks, ears, mouth, nose and forehead), the Grekkom HTC application is able to deliver an accurate temperature reading within +/- 0.3°C – without the need of a black body radiator. Alerts can then be raised to the user, through the camera, in the case of temperatures exceeding or dropping below a defined range.

Grekkom provide a range of configuration guidelines that when followed, help to ensure optimum accuracy of temperature measurement. It is recommended that measurements are taken one person at a time, using the 19mm lens variant which provides a 17° angle of view to measure a single queue of people. Alternatively, larger locations can utilise the 9mm lens model (with a 35° field of view) to measure two queues simultaneously. Individuals should remain at a distance of 1-3m away from the camera, when it is installed at a height of between 1.7m – 1.9m for best practice.

The cameras integrated MicroSD card slot (card not included) supports edge storage and acts as a data back-up in case of network connection loss, ensuring data remains uninterrupted. Power through PoE enables quick and easy installation as network and power is fed to the camera though a single cable.

Please note: this camera does not come with a power supply, please select from the dropdown menu above if required.
