Research and Development
Thermal imaging is used extensively in engineering and scientific research centers around the world. Key to the use of infrared cameras is often application-specific software that permits the detailed analysis of both two-dimensional images as well as arrays of image sequences. Thermal imaging provides insight into critical information about an object’s thermal and spectral characteristics. Thermal imaging has become an extremely valuable technology in many industries not only as an R&D instrument but also for test applications. Infrared cameras for these applications must be quite versatile, having wide object temperature range capabilities, as well as offer a variety of lenses and software.
