Long Wave Infrared Cameras


For practical purposes when we refer to ‘IR cameras’ in the industrial camera world we mean cameras existing in the non-visible regions indicated above. However, an important distinction and to be more correct scientifically speaking, thermal imaging is referred to as imaging in the MWIR and LWIR bands. The reason for this is that terrestrial objects emit light at those wavelengths. Quite simply the higher the object’s temperature the brighter the object will appear in thermal imaging.

Long wave infrared cameras (“LWIR Cameras”) from Rice Camera provide high-quality infrared imaging for a number of application areas. Rice Camera offers the choice of either cooled or uncooled sensors and other combinations of resolution, frame speed, size, and cost to ensure you can choose the right IR camera for your situation. Have a look at our IR cameras and register to receive specifications or contact us with additional questions since we may have cameras available which are not yet on our website. Please note that due to U.S. regulations we will only discuss infrared cameras with U.S. citizens working at a U.S. organization.
