Ther­mal imag­ing cam­eras are so­phis­ti­cated tools to de­ter­mine when and where main­te­nance is needed, be­cause elec­tri­cal and me­chan­i­cal in­stal­la­tions tend to get hot pro­gres­sively be­fore they fail.

Any ob­ject that has a tem­per­a­ture above ab­so­lute zero (-273.15°C) emits ra­di­a­tion in the in­frared re­gion. In­frared ther­mog­ra­phy is the art of trans­form­ing an in­frared im­age into a ra­dio­met­ric one, which al­lows tem­per­a­ture val­ues to be read from the im­age. Ev­ery pixel in the ra­dio­met­ric im­age is in fact a tem­per­a­ture mea­sure­ment.

Buy­ers should make sure that the fol­low­ing ba­sic func­tions are in­cluded in the de­sign. Im­age for­mat: Stan­dard JPG not a pro­pri­etary for­mat. Pic­ture in pic­ture (PIP): Dig­i­tal and the ther­mal im­age for a clear over­view. Ac­cu­racy: In­dus­try stan­dard is ±2% / ±2°C. Ther­mal sen­si­tiv­ity: Small­est tem­per­a­ture dif­fer­ence the cam­era can de­tect usu­ally de­scribed in °C or mK e.g., 0.05°C (50 mK). Ser­vice sup­port: Lo­cal sup­ply – en­sure your sup­port be­gins, not ends, with your pur­chase; Soft­ware: Reporting and anal­y­sis soft­ware in­cluded. New tech­nol­ogy in ther­mal imag­ing: MSX (Multi Spec­tral Dy­namic Imag­ing) su­per­im­poses dig­i­tal cam­era de­tail onto ther­mal im­age and MSX pro­duces ex­cep­tional ther­mal clar­ity.
