How the System Works
The FLIR camera that you use will identify heat energy. This is also known as infrared energy as the visible light produced will come from the infrared spectrum.
The camera will identify the heat signature and convert the data into an electronic signal. This creates a thermal image that will be displayed on a monitor that the camera is linked up to.
The electrical features within the camera will identify the heat signatures of whatever is in an area. The light cannot be seen by the naked eye, but the components inside a camera will find the signals from that light and convert it into something you may notice.
The Intensity Changes
You can notice some changes in the colours of items recorded by your infrared camera. The changes come as the amount of heat produced by an item goes down. This is important in that changes in the heat signatures within items might be a sign that there is something wrong with a machine or that maybe a person might have disappeared from view.
Cuts Through Traffic
The camera’s signals will also read heat information on anything regardless of what is in the way. You can see what is in a spot from a far-off distance. Even items that are obscured by fog or haze can be identified. You only have to look at the intensity of the light being handled at a time.
Your FLIR setup can help you with identifying infrared items with ease. See what Infratherm can do for you when you’re aiming to get the most out of your monitoring demands.
