What Is Infrared Thermography?

Thermal imaging, also called thermography, is the production of non-contact infrared, or "heat" pictures from which temperature measurements can be made By detecting anomalies often invisible to the naked eye, thermography allows corrective action before costly system failures occur. Portable infrared (IR) imaging systems scan equipment and structures, theninstantly convert the thermal images to visible pictures for quantitative temperature analysis.
