Infrared Camera Technology

Infrared Cameras are devices that convert thermal energy into visible light to enable the analysis of a specified object or area. The image generated is referred to as a thermogram and is reviewed through a method known as thermography. The infrared light captured by these cameras can either be displayed as a visible image, or processed further for a more in-depth analysis.

Infrared cameras can have minimal features or a wide range of abilities. These devices typically have user-selectable color palettes, like black/white, iron or full-color. The iron palette is most often utilized by home inspectors. The black/white palette helps details on an image, and a full-color palette is effective for displaying contrasts in temperature.
