An infrared camera is a temperature measurement device that measures the surface temperature of an object without contact. They are many designations for the term “infrared camera”: thermography camera, thermo camera, forward looking device and many more. All terms describe an imaging device that receives infrared radiation. This radiation is the inherent radiation of the measured object, which is emitted in accordance with PLANCK’s radiation law and emissivity. Infrared cameras use often the spectral ranges between 8 µm and 14 µm (long-wave infrared range LWIR). In addition to this standard wavelength range, DIAS Infrared also offers the spectral ranges from 3 µm to 5 µm (mid infrared MWIR) as well as 1.4 µm to 1.6 µm and 0.8 µm to 1.1 µm (near infrared NIR). These wavelength ranges are suitable for non-contact temperature measurement on glass, metals, graphite and ceramics in the high-temperature range from 100 °C up to 3000 °C. To reduce emissivity-related temperature measurement errors, measurements should in principle be made as short wavelengths as possible and/or at wavelengths of high emission.

And how does an infrared camera work?

In principle, infrared cameras are built like an ordinary optoelectronic digital camera. They have an optics, a radiation sensor and an electronic signal processing with data transmission and/or image display. The sensor and the optics of infrared cameras have to be applicable in the requested infrared wavelength range (LWIR, MWIR, NIR). The thermal images that can be displayed via thermography software on a computer or on a display of a portable camera are available as gray scales as temperature/intensity information. Though shades of gray can be differed hardly by the human eye infrared images are displayed often in so-called pseudo-colors. DIAS uses as infrared sensors for their infrared cameras modern uncooled 2D array detectors on the basis of micro bolometers (LWIR and MWIR) as well as Si and InGaAs photodiodes (NIR).

How do I buy the right thermal imaging camera?

When selecting and buying a thermal imaging camera, not only the desired measuring temperature range and price are important, but also a number of other characteristics must be considered. You will find help in selecting a suitable infrared camera in our white paper “How to find the right thermal imaging camera”.
