Spot “Vs” Area Temperature Measurement using IR Cameras

Over the years I have been involved in the infrared industry I have seen some mistakes made and problems missed using spot temperature measurements on IR cameras, luckily these were rectified using the IR software when the reports were written… (would not have been the case had we been using “report by exception” techniques!)...

Why is Emissivity so Important?

A typical plant is full of equipment that requires periodic infrared (IR) inspection. The challenge, as any thermographer knows, is getting an accurate indication of equipment health. Properly compensating for the various emissivity values of all the components one encounters on the factory floor is possibly the most critical factor in performing accurate and meaningful inspections...

Is there an IR Window “Pressure Rating” for use in ISO phase bus pressurized terminal boxes?

The short answer to your question is: No, there is no published ” pressure rating ” for the infrared (IR) window lens. There actually is no specific Standard existing to begin with requiring specific pressure withstand testing or assigned ratings for IR windows. However, IRISS products and lenses are tested against a minimum challenge of 950°Celsius and 25 PSI...

Analyze your findings…..How accurate are your readings and why?

Many people are not aware that the detector in an infrared camera actually only reads electromagnetic radiation it receives in a specific range of wavelengths. In order to display this in a useful reading the camera makes several calculations in order to convert the actual data to a temperature...

The Formula for Determining Field of View Using any Infrared Camera

Every infrared camera defines its Field of View (FOV) across a horizontal/vertical axis.You have two ways to determine the Field of View (FOV) on your camera:You can calculate the FOV using the formula: 2 x the tangent of ½ the angle x distance You can measure (and “map out”) the practical FOV with a quick field test to check your math! The practical FOV test is quick, relatively easy, and in no way requires a scientific calculator!...
