Advantages of Thermal Imaging
Advantages of infrared thermal imaging are that non-contact temperature acquisition can be obtained without touching the object. This is particularly advantageous when we are not able to access the object (for safety reasons) or that a system must otherwise be shut down for evaluation.
Two-dimensional evaluations can be made by comparing the temperature of multiple targets within the same scan. This temperature differential between like objects produces the anomalies which we seek.
Thermal imaging is real-time. It is not necessary to wait for processing of images and immediate evaluations can be obtained.
