What is thermal imaging or infrared thermography?

From what InterNATCHI’s web page says about infrared, “Infrared thermography (IRT) is the science used to capture and process thermal information using non-contact measurement tools. This is done by analyzing infrared (IR) radiation emitted from an object whose temperature is above absolute zero. Because this wavelength exists outside of the visible spectrum of light, infrared measuring devices are required to capture and process this information.” The camera detects heat signatures and displays them on a color scale with lighter colors signifying heat and darker colors signifying cooler areas.

Infrared Technology

What’s so great about IR?

  • IRT is a non-contact technology; the devices do not to be in contact with the sources of heat creating a safer work environment.
  • IRT creates a two-dimensional thermal image that allows for comparisons with visible light cameras
  • IRT works in real-time, allowing high-speed scanning of images
  • IRT is safe and effective
  • IRT is non-invasive and will not disturb or affect the target area
