FLIR, the company which invented infrared cameras in the 1960s, has released an easy to read 24-page guide entitled ‘12 things to know before buying an IR camera.’

Available free on request at FLIR Systems Australia ’s website - the company encourages potential IR users to do some basic research which it says ‘ could save you a lot of money and work in the long run.’

The booklet is written in common-use language and is (mostly) free from jargon. It takes readers through basic IR camera questions, including: 

  • Ensure the camera can produce accurate, repeatable results (to within 2% accuracy) 
  • Buy a camera that outputs standard jpeg format 
  • Buy a camera with high definition resolution and image quality
  • Make sure the camera has a rechargeable battery and that it comes with a spare and a charger
Through this process, the guide helps the reader contemplate what features they might need, what are the basics of IR cameras and their functions and why thermal sensitivity is important.

As leaders in IR cameras, FLIR says in summary: “We know that as more and more manufacturers enter the market, the choice of what to buy can become harder, if not more confusing, to make.
