Just over 200 years ago, the famed British composer and astronomer Sir William Herschel discovered infrared (IR) radiation. Today, test tools using Herschel’s infrared discovery enable technicians in many fields—electricians; plant technicians; heating, ventilation and plumbing contractors; and automotive technicians—to detect and fix problems otherwise invisible. Now a new innovation, the Fluke VT02 Visual Thermometer—developed...

Thermal cameras take infrared images. The term Infrared means “beyond red”. Thermography is defined as “temperature picture”. So, by definition, infrared thermography means a “beyond red temperature picture”. Both visible light and infrared is part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Infrared has a longer wavelength and lower frequency than visible light. Infrared thermography is the science...

There’s no universal solution for all infrared inspections with a thermal camera, also known as a thermal imager. You need to match your method to the type of equipment you’re inspecting and the level of detail you require. That said, there are three typical methods that cover most situations you’ll run into: Baseline thermography Thermal...
