Infrared camera technology guide

Share this on social media:

Flir has produced a resource guide for users investing in infrared for R&D applications. The guide includes the principles of infrared detection and measurement, and compares the different detector types, cooling methods and focal plane array assemblies.

Subsequent sections provide advice on getting the most from an infrared camera, covering subjects such as typical camera measurement functions, emissivity correction and the use of filters to extend the scope of application. 

Also addressed are recent advances in ultra-speed thermography and, in particular, the application potential of short integration times and pre-set sequencing, and the importance of a fast pixel clock and multiple channels.
