Infrared thermal imaging cameras

Fluke infrared thermal imaging cameras provide you with high-quality thermal images for industrial inspection. You can discover faults and failures before they become a problem – and enjoy the ease of a high-resolution, high temperature sensitivity, rugged thermal camera, ready for the toughest industrial environments.

By noting temperature changes, thermal imaging helps you find leaks, cut costs, and use energy more efficiently.

Handheld thermal cameras are best for preventive maintenance, electrical inspections, and frontline troubleshooting. While articulating thermal cameras are best for when you need pinpoint accuracy from both near and far, from electrical utilities to research and development. And mounted thermal cameras or infrared scanners are the strongest in the bunch, ideal for research, science and engineering applications allowing for continuous infrared data collection.

Frequently asked questions for infrared thermal imaging cameras

What is a Thermal Camera?

A thermal camera is an inspection tool that captures infrared energy – radiation emitted from an object – and creates an image. Thermal cameras, also known as infrared cameras and thermal imagers, are ideal for industrial inspection. Maintenance, leak detection, and machine troubleshooting are all common applications.

What is a Thermal Camera Used For?

Thermal cameras can be used for a broad range of applications: building inspection, security, electrical maintenance, firefighting, gas detection, and beyond. Thermography is an especially powerful test method for uses in which:

  • Remote inspection is essential for safety
  • Damage or decay is expressed through temperature changes, such as in three-phase wiring
  • Test objects/subjects are obscured due to poor visibility

What Makes Thermal Imaging Cameras Useful?

Some thermal imaging cameras can see up to 1km and beyond, but most can’t see through thick solid surfaces like walls.

What is Thermal Imaging?

Thermal imaging is the process of capturing infrared radiation and translating it into thermal images, or thermograms. Thermal imaging shows variations in temperature expressed in color. Powerful infrared cameras are incredibly sensitive, displaying heat in great detail with color gradients.

How Does Thermal Imaging Work?

Everything around us emits infrared energy – a heat signature. Thermal imaging works by measuring infrared energy and converting that data into electronic images that display surface temperature. An optical system focused infrared energy to a sensor array, or detector chip, with thousands of pixels in a grid. A matrix of colors corresponding to temperatures is sent to the camera display as a picture.

What is an Infrared Scanner?

An infrared scanner measures human temperature, often mounted for continuous monitoring and with a large display. Infrared scanning is a term most often used for human body temperature measurement. However, infrared scanners can also be used for applications like scanning machines, concrete, and buildings.
