What is a thermal imaging camera?
By: Cape Thermal
A thermal imaging camera is simply a means of capturing and storing visually interpreted thermal radiation information. There are various types of infrared imaging solutions available depending on your application type.
Although we refer to them as "cameras", these devices are actually thermal imaging sensors.
Thermal imaging camera sensors are a contact-free means of capturing and visually translating thermal infrared imagery. These thermal imaging sensors are designed to be sensitive only to the far-infrared portion of the electromagnetic spectrum.
For precise quantitative data, infrared thermography cameras can be employed to measure and display temperatures within the field of view of the thermal imaging sensor. The best handheld thermal imaging camera systems are useful for general electrical or mechanical infrared thermography inspections. These devices are typically lightweight and resistant to the elements.
Permanently installed (fixed) infrared thermography inspection cameras can be employed as an always-on industrial thermal imaging and condition monitoring solution.
For simple detection using infrared thermal imagery without temperature measurements. High-resolution thermal imaging cameras are available for general portable outdoor or for fixed installation security purposes. For example, the best thermal monoculars are widely used by security professionals or anti-poaching organizations as a lightweight, mobile thermal detection solution. Additionally, fixed thermal imaging security cameras are fast becoming the standard for long-distance perimeter intrusion detection.
