Short 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.
