Choosing an Infrared Camera - Factors to Consider

A umber of factors come into play when it comes to choosing an infrared camera: durability, ease of operation, temperature range, detector size, lens angle, sensitivity, as well as voice annotation and reporting capabilities. Another very important consideration is the work environment.

It is the latter that is often not taken into account but should be at the top of the list of factors, when shopping around for an infrared camera. Voice annotation comes in handy in regards to workflow and safety, since thermal imagers are designed for single-hand operation.
