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. Infrared cameras use usually the spectral ranges between 8 µm and 14 µm (long-wave infrared range LWIR) and 3 µm to 5 µm (mid-wave infrared range MWIR) because of the self-radiation of the measurement objects in accordance with PLANCKs radiation law, the so-called atmospheric windows and the available infrared detectors. DIAS Infrared offers next to these standard wavelength ranges also the spectral ranges 1.4 µm to 1.6 µm as well as 0.8 µm to 1.1 µm. These wavelength ranges are suitable for non-contact temperature measurement on glass, metals, graphite and ceramics in the high-temperature range up to 3000 °C.

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 (for example LWIR, MWIR, NWIR). 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 intensity/temperature 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 (near infrared).
