What's so special about an infrared camera
- 2019-07-12-

Infrared thermal imaging technology is used in both military and civilian applications. It originally originated in military use and gradually switched to civilian use. It is generally called a thermal imager in civilian use, and is mainly used in research and development or industrial inspection and equipment maintenance. It is also widely used in fire prevention, night vision, and security.

The infrared thermal imager uses the infrared detector and the optical imaging objective lens to receive the infrared radiation energy distribution pattern of the measured target and reflect it on the photosensitive element of the infrared detector to obtain an infrared thermal image. This thermal image is related to the heat of the surface of the object. The distribution field corresponds. Generally speaking, a thermal imager is to convert invisible infrared energy emitted by an object into a visible thermal image. The different colors on the top of the thermal image represent different temperatures of the measured object.

So what's so special about an infrared thermal imager?

A. The detection distance is long, and the safety is improved. The most professional infrared thermal imager can set the distance by itself when imaging the infrared radiation of an object, which effectively avoids the harm caused by too close distance when imaging high-temperature objects. You can detect high-temperature surfaces on the move or in high places without touching the high-temperature target in close range. And it is not limited by ambient light and illumination light. Generally, a telephoto infrared thermal imager can observe objects with a distance of more than several kilometers.

B. Strong penetrating ability and good imaging effect. Infrared thermal radiation has a stronger ability to penetrate fog, haze, rain, and snow than visible light. Therefore, the imaging effect of the infrared thermal imager under hard weather conditions is hardly affected. Of course, if you want an infrared thermal imager with higher penetration, it is not a problem at all. You can clearly express your needs at the place of purchase.

C. All-weather working ability, anti-light interference infrared thermal imager imaging principle does not rely on illumination light and ambient light, but rely on the detection of the target and the surrounding background to generate heat generated by the scene image, so the infrared thermal imager can Works 24 hours a day and is not subject to glare like other night vision devices. It should be known that low-light cameras cannot image without external ambient light, and the advantages of infrared thermal imagers are obvious.

The above is the introduction of the characteristics of infrared thermal imager
