Is there a difference between an infrared thermal imager and an infrared thermometer?
- 2019-08-28-

Some people think that the infrared thermal imager and the infrared thermometer are one thing. In fact, there is a big difference between them. Today, Wuxi very Xiang Technology Co., Ltd. takes you to understand the difference between the two:

1. The infrared camera has four core advantages: safety, intuitiveness, efficiency, and prevention of missed detection. The ordinary infrared thermometer only has a single-point measurement function, while the infrared thermal imager can capture the overall temperature distribution of the measured target, quickly find high and low temperature points, and avoid missed inspections. If you are an engineer who has used an infrared thermometer, you should have a good understanding. When scanning an electrical cabinet about 1 meter high, you need to scan back and forth repeatedly. For fear of missing a certain high temperature, it will cause safety hazards. It takes a few minutes. With an infrared thermal imager, it can be completed in a few seconds. The key is to be clear at a glance.

2. Although ordinary infrared thermometers have laser pointers, they only serve as a reminder of the target being measured. They are not equal to the measured temperature point, but the average temperature in the corresponding target area, but most users will mistakenly think The temperature value displayed on the screen is the temperature of the laser spot, which is very wrong! Infrared thermal imagers do not have this problem, because the overall temperature distribution is displayed at a glance, and most infrared thermal imagers on the market have laser pointers and LED lights, which are convenient for rapid location and identification on site. For some detection environments with safety distance restrictions, ordinary infrared thermometers cannot meet the requirements, because as the measurement distance increases, the target area for accurate detection is enlarged, and the temperature value naturally obtained will be affected. However, infrared thermal imagers can provide accurate measurements from a user's safe distance, because the D: S distance coefficient of 300: 1 is far beyond the infrared thermometer.

3. For the recording and analysis of data, ordinary infrared thermometers do not have such a function. They can only be recorded manually and cannot be effectively managed. The infrared thermal imager can automatically save visible light images while shooting for later comparison. The infrared camera can take several thermal pictures while taking thermal pictures, such as equipment model, nearby equipment, environment, etc., for remarks and archiving. The thermal map of the infrared thermal imager accurately records the temperature information of the target according to the pixel distribution; and it can store, export, label, and background analysis functions and provide infrared reports.
