What exactly is thermography?
Thermal cameras detect radiation in the range of the electromagnetic spectrum and produce images of that radiation called thermographs. The amount of radiation emitted by an object is proportional to its temperature, so thermography allows us to see variations in temperature in the scene independently of the area illumination. Thermography is commonly used in healthcare, agriculture, protecting endangered species, waste management or as a nightvision. It is also used for surveillance uses, fire detection, energy efficiency or condition monitoring.
Advantages of thermography
At first, it shows a visual picture so temperatures over a large area can be compared. Moreover, it is capable of catching moving targets in real time. Using this technology, you will be able to find deteriorating, i.e., higher temperature components prior to their failure. Infrared cameras can be also used to measure or observe in areas inaccessible or hazardous for other methods. In any case, it is of course a non-destructive test method. Thermography is also a very useful tool for searching defects in shafts, pipes, and other metal or plastic parts and detecting objects in dark areas.
Aerial thermography is a summarizing term which includes both unmanned aerial device with an infrared camera scanning. UAV thermography is widely used among environmentalists, security guards or technicians.
But conventional aircraft seems to be unnecessarily expensive and dangerous. UAV systems have proven themselves to be an incomparable alternative. Drones can boast on precise positioning, higher safety level and affordable costs.
Anyway, if you decide to use thermography technology for any reason, we offer you our full servis and skilled support. Regarding infrared cameras, you can surely find our UAV thermography training to be useful: Thermography Training for Workswell thermographic system
As you see, we don´t just sell the products, we want to share our knowledge and experience about the UAV as well. We truly believe in current and future benefit of drones for the society, that´s why we offer you the Flight School, training for Workswell and another services.
