Learn More About the Use of a Thermal Camera for Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging is a Contactless Measurement Technology

  • Why Does Thermal Imaging Work?

    An infrared camera – also called IR camera, thermal imaging camera or thermal camera – is a measuring instrument used for non-contact measurements of the surface temperature of objects. Measuring temperature in this way enables you to visualise infrared radiation of objects or humans which are normally out of the normal visible spectrum. The infrared camera uses its integrated infrared detector to record the intensity and distribution of a certain spectrum of this electromagnetic radiation. The thermal camera is set up close to process it is controlling in order to immediately detect and rectify deviations from the parameters defined for this process. InfraTec provides such solutions for process monitoring and quality control as well as for research and development.

  • What Makes a Thermal Imaging Camera Useful?

    The benefit of non-contact temperature measurement technology is the capability to inspect objects non-destructively and contact-free and to make material conditions in deeper layers visible. The contact-free measurement of temperature distributions on objects or in processes constantly informs about the state of the object. Thus, deviations of the production standard can be recognised. In addition to the mobile infrared camera models, InfraTec has also developed various thermography automation solutions for process and quality control applications. InfraTec specialised on developing reliable high-class infrared camera models for all application fields of thermal imaging.

  • Can Thermal Imaging See Through Glass?

    Not as a rule, since glass is transmittant by visible light in the same way as is near infrared, however, it is not beyond a wavelength of approx. 4 µm. This spectral range requires special infrared-transmittant window materials.

  • What Are the Application Fields of Thermal Imaging?

    Especially during the production of thermally sensitive components, thermography is capable of giving vital information for quality assurance purposes. Even smallest temperature deviations can lead to serious quality loss, i.e. in the plastics or automotive industry. By setting up a thermal camera monitoring system, such faults can be recognised, documented and corrected immediately.

    InfraTec offers a suitable infrared camera and ideal thermography software for every application field, stationary or mobile. The modular structure of the measurement devices makes it easy to meet every customer-specific demand.

Infrared Thermal Imaging in Stationary Use

An infrared camera is installed in close vicinity to the process, which has to be monitored. The infrared camera transmits all captured data to an evaluation unit. The evaluation unit compares the actual value to the defined target value by comparing the minimum, maximum and average values. A switch contact can be triggered by the transgression of thresholds, which will then set off an alarm. Appropriate countermeasures can then be taken.

InfraTec’s measurement devices are rugged, have been tested extensively and are conceived for continuous industrial use. Modern interface concepts allow for reliable camera control, data acquisition and online data evaluation, even over long distances. This makes thermal imaging ideal for automation solutions like slag detection, early fire detection or for inspections of solar cells and photovoltaic modules.

InfraTec is a Leading Thermal Imaging Expert

InfraTec has been offering a wide range of innovative high-class thermal imaging measurement devices since 1991. The quality of the high-performance infrared cameras is based on profound and permanent development processes. The range of services of the thermography division ranges from production and sale of infrared cameras to the supply with turn-key thermography automation solutions.

FLIR – Forward Looking Infrared

The abbreviation FLIR stands for Forward Looking Infrared, which is an imaging infrared process. FLIR cameras are very common on military aircrafts or police helicopters. They are used to spot heat sources, which are then displayed via video output to the pilot. FLIR cameras are very different from night-vision devices and conventional infrared cameras, since these only display a certain infrared range.
