How Does an IR Camera Work?

Infrared Energy Detection

Want to know how an IR camera works? An infrared camera is a non-contact device that detects infrared energy (heat) and converts it into an electronic signal, which is then processed to produce a thermal image on a video monitor and perform temperature calculations. Heat sensed by an infrared camera can be very precisely quantified, or measured, allowing you to not only monitor thermal performance, but also identify and evaluate the relative severity of heat-related problems.

Thermal imaging can clearly reveal problems from sources of energy loss, moisture intrusion and structural issues to overheating electrical and mechanical equipment.



1. the use of thermograms to study heat distribution in structures or regions, for example in detecting tumors.

2a printing technique in which a wet ink image is fused by heat or infrared radiation with a resinous powder to produce a raised impression.
