FLIR has introduced a new guidebook on thermal imaging cameras designed to develop better understanding of thermography among potential users.

FLIR’s guidebook, 12 Things to Know Before Buying an Infrared Camera answers several questions about infrared cameras including features required for specific applications; basic infrared camera functions; and price versus functionality comparison.

An infrared camera is a highly recommended tool for companies to create a stronger predictive maintenance program, maximise uptime and reduce potential safety hazards in their facilities.

FLIR thermal cameras can also be used for reliable, non-contact testing applications. The temperature of mechanical equipment and electrical systems can be scanned, visualised and analysed quickly and accurately.

The thermal imaging guidebook for building and renewable energy applications can be freely downloaded from the FLIR website.
