FLIR Thermal Imaging
A thermal imager is a camera which is capable of detecting extremely small temperature differences. These temperature differences can be converted into a real-time video image. Displayed on a monitor, this video image is extremely suited for night vision applications. Unlike other night vision systems that require low amounts of light to generate an image, a thermal imager needs no light at all. This makes it the perfect tool to see in absolute darkness, to see during the darkest night.
Thermal Imaging for Security
Thermal cameras compliment and complete your security camera network by giving you the power to see threats invisible to the naked eye, turning night into day. Thermal security cameras make images from the heat energy that is around us all the time, not from reflected visible light, giving you true 24/7 imaging capability without lights or illuminators. Thermal energy penetrates atmospheric obscurants better and farther than visible light, allowing you to see what’s out there through haze, smoke, dust and even light fog. Day and night, through good weather and bad, close up and far away, FLIR’s thermal security cameras do it all.
Here some examples of thermal cameras use:
