Thermal Imaging Camera Description
When renting a thermal imaging camera be sure to speak with your KWIPPED network supplier to determine the best pixel, frame rate, dynamic range, and field of view options for your imaging project. You should also determine whether a color data display would be best for your analysis or if a black and white density display is sufficient.
Features of thermal imaging cameras
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.
