Thermography – Measurement of Smallest Temperature Details

The vast majority of biologic processes only result in small temperature difference as they are always connected to a rather high energy consumption organisms try to avoid. Likewise, hydrological and geophysical anomalies within the thermal spectrum come with only lower thermal signatures.

InfraTec offers infrared camera models which suit the resulting demands in thermal resolution and thereby, guarantee for usable results of your studies. For instance, you can most precisely follow the thermal day cycles of plants which can lead to new results when monitoring the reaction of biotopes to external stress.

Case Studies

Thermography for climate research

Thermography for climate research

Climate research is one of the most exposed types of academic research these days. With the continuous discussion about extreme weather events and long-term implications of human-made climate factors the related science has become a part of everyone´s daily life.

Thermography in Biology - Bats

Bats are important in the ecosystems, and can provide valuable services to humans such as reducing the numbers of insect pests at night. But the consequences of human population expansion have caused significant reductions in the populations of many bat species over the past hundred years. In order to protect bat populations firstly their ecology has to be understood but it can be very difficult to study the small, nocturnal mammals in the wild. Infrared thermography offers solutions to many of the problems faced by bat ecologists.

Uninterrupted Surveillance of Animal Behaviour

The behaviour of animals can easily be tracked by visual cameras. But those cameras also just easily come to their limits. Additional light or activation sources for using visual surveillance technologies would be needed. But those will also interfere with the biological behaviour of animals. An infrared camera helps here as it allows to monitor even during absolute darkness. Beside of this you will also be able to detect perfectly camouflaged animals as their camouflage normally works in the visible spectrum only. Thereby for instance airborne countings of populations will become feasible using an infrared camera.

Application Specific Lens Solutions Offer Optimal Resolution-FOV Ratio

InfraTec offers a wide range of interchangeable lenses for its infrared camera models being configurable with highly resolving detectors. Thereby the ratio between detail resolution and size of field of view can be set in the best way for your specific needs. For example you can measure temperatures of smallest animals using microscopic lenses as well as the full width of landscapes by applying wide-angle lenses. For images taken from planes, UAVs or helicopters a variety of telephoto lenses are available for you, too.
