Electrical Induction Explained.

Sometimes with electricity we get inducted heat (induction). Induction can take place on metalwork exposed to changing magnetic fields, for example generators or cable entry plates. It is a result of the location of the metal and its proximity to electricity. It is...

Colour Palette’s, so much choice!

A thermal camera (microbolometer) detects infrared energy and converts it into an electronic signal, which is then processed to produce a thermal image, allowing us to perform temperature calculations. Thermal cameras do not detect colour because the wavelength that...

A thought on image interpretation!

Thermal imaging cameras translate thermal energy (heat) into visible light to allow us to analyse an object or scene. They provide us with an image of temperature distribution on a surface or object. They can be used for immediate diagnosis or processed through...
