Recently, many people have become aware of use of Thermal Camera in measuring human body temperature, thanks for mass media reports about fever screening for COVID19 symptoms. Most probably, this will be one of the widely used application for thermal camera in coming days, here is few areas where thermal camera has been used extensively PRE-COVID19 days
Monitoring temperature is a requirement in many processes in many industries. While more traditional ways of temperature measurement like RTDs, ThermoCouples or pyrometers are widely used, Thermal Camera is also gaining acceptance in the industries for temperature monitoring. One immediate advantage of thermal camera over either RTD or Pyrometer is coverage of wider area. Pyrometer can measure spot temperature while a Thermal Camera can measure whole area covered by its lens.
