Thermal imaging cameras have a lens for receiving infrared radiation data, internal components that convert it to an electric signal and a data screen. Most are handheld and similar in size and shape to regular photography cameras.
How thermal imaging cameras work
The thermal imaging camera detects infrared radiation as thermal energy and converts this to an electric signal. The electric signals are displayed on a screen as an image. The image may be in black and white with different density representing the differences in infrared radiation or the image may use colors. The colors are easier for the human eye to detect at high levels.
About thermal imaging cameras
Thermal imaging cameras are also known as thermographic or infrared cameras. They create an image using infrared radiation. This allows the operator to see heat differences; this is useful for seeing things in the dark or through other obstacles.
