In simple terms, an IR camera or thermal imager converts infrared radiation into a visual image that depicts temperature variations across an object or scene. This allows one to make non-contact measurements of an object’s temperature for data acquisition, analysis, and reporting. The process of using an Infrared camera for data viewing, recording, analysis, and reporting is called Thermography.

Thermography has become an indispensible tool for all sorts of R&D projects. There are a lot of IR camera options available at varying costs and features; so selecting the correct camera that will help solve your particular application is challenging.

To ensure you get a quality IR camera that meets all your application requirements, both now and in the future, FLIR has put together a list of 7 Things to know when selecting an IR camera for Research and Development. This will help guide you through the process of identifying project requirements, and selecting a camera with features best suited for your unique application. This discussion will help you narrow down the wide array of IR cameras by guiding you in the creation of a requirements document, which will point you in the right direction for your ultimate camera selection.
