A simple guide | Micro LWIR camera principles and advantages

A micro LWIR camera is a type of thermal imaging camera that operates in the long wave infrared (LWIR) spectrum, which ranges from 8 to 14 micrometers. A micro LWIR camera uses a microbolometer as an image sensor, which is an uncooled device that measures the temperature of each pixel by detecting the change in electrical resistance caused by infrared radiation. A micro LWIR camera has several advantages over other types of infrared cameras.

Low noise: This micro LWIR camera has low noise and is minimally impacted by thermal noise and ambient temperature fluctuations compared to other infrared cameras, resulting in clear and stable images.

Wide temperature range: Extensive temperature measurement range (up to 650C) for diverse industrial and scientific applications.

High frame rate(Up to 50Hz):Maximize detection efficiency and ensure reliable data when observing fast moving targets or rapid temperature changes

Sensor Type:We use Uncooled VOx Microbolometer Sensor that low cost,Generally speaking, infrared cameras have relatively high requirements for image quality. If the camera temperature is too high when used for a long time, the camera will not be able to image well.this sensor is cheaper than infrared detectors that require a cooling system or more expensive detector materials

A micro LWIR camera is suitable for various applications that require high-resolution and high-sensitivity thermal imaging, such as thermography, predictive maintenance, gas leak detection, and imaging through smoke or fog. For more information
