Q:
Is there any advice you want to share with users to help them avoid common errors in selection or usage of a thermal imager?
82 answers
Answers:
Choose an ir camera that delivers accurate, repeatable results; buy a camera with high detector resolution/image quality, with a wide temp range, with a built-in laser pointer, with software upgrade potential, adequate image fusion capabilities, that you yourself can change the battery, of lightweight and that outputs standard JPEG format, ergonomic for extended or frequent use and finally with a built-in visual camera and lights to help clearly document your work. Therefore go for a product that can be upgraded and definitely buy a thermal camera from a manufacturer with strong post-sale technical support and certified training.
~Tassos A, General Management, CHALANDRI, GREECE
If you're looking for very small temperature changes - i.e. damp in walls then the sensitivity of the camera is more important than the resolution. Don't be distracted into thinking that you need a high resolution camera - with cameras now offering to combine a visual image with a thermal image you can get clarity of an image combined with accurate temperature measurement.
~Alan T, General Management, UK
Know the limitations if you have them; test the manufacturer's claims as to capability; know your requirements before asking manufacturers to come in with their product; stay away from "bells and whistles" unless they are adding value to the use; train with and maintain the unit properly before claiming that "it doesn't work"
~Mike, Emergency Response/Planner, Gravenhurst, Canada
Good brochure doesn't make good imager there are a lot of OEMs of equipment that you wouldn't buy if you knew the original maker. Its a small market and actually is only one company that creates technology. Cross check the camera resolution to be three times more than your target's diameter.
~Konstantinos R, Thermographer, Athens, Greece
Selection according the the specific application and problem to be solved is important since there are a wide variety of thermal imagers available based on technology. One of the most important factors to consider is if an uncooled detector or cooled detector is to be used.
~Sanjukta Ghosh, Project Manager, Pune, India
First analyze your requirements (Distance, resolution, ambient temperature etc.). Then look for the manufacturer who will be able to meet these requirements and provide maintenance and technical support. Price should be the least of considerations.
~Syed J, Contracts Manager, Jubail, SAUDI ARABIA
Rent a camera once you have narrowed down your selection so that you will have a better idea that the selected camera will do what you want it to do. Ask fellow thermographers their opinions on what they would buy.
~Gordon R, Retired, Canada
Get an imager that displays both the thermal view and a thumbnail of what you are imaging. When you have a LOT of similar object images to analyze it can be challenging determining which unit you are looking at.
~Stephen H, Data Centre Facilities Engineer, Parramatta, Australia
A)mentioned in question no.8 b)handling of instrument with safety c)don't handover the instrument to person who doesn't have an idea about thermography d)maintenance of instrument & battery as well as charger......
~Yoge S, Engineer, Bangalore, India
Make sure your application definitely required for thermal imager, however, in most case, I had found that the thermal imagers are very useful for detection to cover certain area (by very instant viewing).
~Thomas T, Engineering Consultant, China
Proper training of the user is critical. While most thermal imagers can be picked up and used without training, using them accurately requires training and an understanding of IR radiation.
~Geoff H, National Products Manager, Brisbane, Australia
Ensure the camera will do the job intended ie: distance from object, resolution, is the reporting software included in the price of the camera, back up service, local agent to deal with.
~Don P, Electrical fitter, Napier, New Zealand
Know your temperature span - you can have one small, hot feature wash-out the resolution of the rest of your picture. KNOW about emissivity and reflectivity, and don't be 'fooled'.
~Joe P., Quality Coordinator, Milwaukee, WI
Don't go cheap, I rented a B50 camera with lower resolutions, 17k pixels, and cannot see that good, if you want to get into thermal would go with 320 x 240 IR resolutions.
~Mark S, Purchaser, Zachary, LA
Try them first, many if not most retailers will send a rep to demonstrate their product. Go for the most camera you can afford. It will pay off in the long run.
~John M, Owner/operator Jeminspections, Sarasota, FL
See above. The only other advice is to become proficient in the use of the device and the interpreting the results prior to when the boss asks you to do a study.
~Jerry W, Electrical Supervisor, Salem, OR
- Check and define your exact needs. - Ask for advice to more than one provider. - Ask for equipment demonstration. - Make your conclusions.
~Amir E, Senior Security and Safety Consultant, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Use a known emissivity target on your subject. Lock and take reading from targets. Don't be fooled by bright , shiny 3 digit numbers.
~Mickey P, Principal Scientist, Houston, TX
I am really not aware of any common errors. I would just suggest that you really get to know and become familiar with your product.
~Ramiro P, Engineer, Irvine, CA
Price is not a guide for the imager selection. Read a lot and get informed in what is the best product for your particular use.
~Eduardo P, Design Engineer, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Watch USB computer interface options carefully, some of the lower priced units have very limited and cheap graphics.

~Bruce R, General Management, Bridgewater, NJ
If you are working to certain industry standards (e.g. ASTM), make sure the camera meets the required resolution.
~Maria S, Engineering Consultant, Dallas, TX
Before taking data or making measurements be sure the emissivity is correct by checking with other standard device.
~Agung W, Engineer, Jakarta, Indonesia
Know which spectral range is best suited to your application. Identify if you want still pictures or live video.
~Tony C, Biomedical Engineer, Adelaide, Australia
Tech advances fast. Definitely talk to company reps that make the equipment rather than just the importers.
~Mark H, Engineer, Auckland, New Zealand
There are a lot of imagers out there made by different companies so shop around and ask a lot of questions.
~Cassaundra W, PdM Technician, New Orleans, LA
Get enough resolution, and take care of the exchangeability of the data generated by the service software.
~Lubos H, Project leader, Neuchatel, Switzerland
Don't buy the cheapest model, ask someone in the business for advice - check the spec and features.
~Vincent F, Engineering Consultant, Bangkok, Thailand
Do not buy buy any camera without above features. I am not a strong believer of snapshot cameras.
~Shaibal G, Thermographer, Kolkata, 44
Price is not an indicator of value. Some that are priced higher do not offer more capability.
~Joel Meza, Engineering Consultant, San Francisco, CA
You have to know if it can measure ambient (air) temperatures or only surface temperatures.

~Michael M, General Management, Moscow, Russia
Make sure you are able to test as many thermal imagers as possible before you buy.
~John L, Surveyor, Ireland
1. Go for branded Ti. 2. Do not buy a cheap one as this may give wrong measurement.
~Benjamin Gnanadigam M, Marketing/Sales, Bangalore, INDIA

Be careful to select the most convenient lens or lenses for your application.
