Thermal Imaging

In choosing the most effective tools to monitor the temperature of their products, warehouse managers and manufacturers often turn to thermal imaging technology to assist in maintaining the quality and safety of their stock.

Thermal imaging is a method of improving visibility of objects in a dark environment by detecting the objects’ infrared radiation and creating an image based on that information.

Thermal imaging, near-infrared illumination, low-light imaging are the three most commonly used technologies. Unlike the other two methods, thermal imaging works in environments without any ambient light. Like near-infrared illumination, thermal imaging can penetrate obscurants such as smoke, fog and haze.

All objects emit infrared energy (heat) as a function of their temperature. The infrared energy emitted by an object is known as a function of their temperature. The infrared energy emitted by an object is known as its heat signature. In general, the hotter an object is, the more radiation it emits. A thermal imager (also known as a thermal camera) is essentially a heat sensor that is capable of detecting tiny differences in temperature. The device collects the infrared radiation from objects in the scene and creates an electronic image based on information about the temperature differences. Because objects are rarely precisely the same temperature as other objects around them, a thermal camera can detect them and they will appear as distinct in a thermal image.
