​Sample Thermal Images

Some sample thermal images (with annotations added using FLIR Tools) are provided below in the form of screenshots from the generated PDF report. We can see that the FLIR ONE Pro is able to track temperatures ranging from -17C to 150C.

​Freezer Compartment

Refrigerator Compartment

Ceiling from Staircase Base in a Dark Room

​Child

​Notebook under Use

Composite Deck in the Sun

Open Flame on a 16000 BTU Natural Gas Cooktop Burner

We can also see the versatility of the FLIR Tools app, which allows tracking of multiple regions in the deck sample above. The ceiling shot (in the dark) also shows the wooden rafters standing out in the thermal image. Temperatures are fairly accurate, with the human skin temperature correctly being identified.

    Only surface thin layer get high temperature and don't block infrare from inside Reply

    If a "ghost" decides to emit some IR, you should see something.
    Some years back, I knew a guy who worked full time in a cemetery for most of his life. He told me he'd seen lots of strange stuff but he wouldn't go into details.
    A few blocks from where I live now there is a big cemetery. However, they close it down every day at 8pm and nobody is allowed in after except security. I'd love to take a camera like this in there.

    FLIR sensors are manufactured in the United States, about 90 ft from where I am sitting now. :) Reply

    My question is:

    How long until this technology is blamed for something perpetrated illegally? More than one politician has tried to outlaw night vision devices. As this becomes ubiquitous, useful, and helpful, the potential for abuse rises.

    It is just a matter of time until a politician attempts to ride this issue for votes.

    Other question for those knowledgeable with the technology:
    The review mentions that longevity of the microbolometer is a sensitive point, but no specifics are given. Any idea of how performance of these degrades over time? Should I expect failure of individual pixels at some point or rather loss in accuracy? After how much time? Would this happen homogeneously over the entire array or would individual pixels age differently?

    I hate this idea. Privacy will go out the window. Ban this now. Reply

    For those trying to insulate their house, this should be the first tool in the kit. Reply

    These types of thermal cameras can be used to steal pin numbers from keypads. If the person behind you in a checkout line simply snaps a thermal image of the pin keypad, before touching it themselves, they can examine the picture to see the residual heat left behind by your fingers. - I suggest that next time you do a review of mobile thermal camera hardware you warn readers about this potential security vulnerability. An easy solution is to simply touch all the buttons gently after putting in your pin, thereby obfuscating the thermal signature of your pin. Reply

    Hello.
    I do micro electronic repeiring, mainly mobiles. can I use this to check a mobile pcb at IC level ?
    what is the minimum distance I can focus it?

    In additiona, is there any way to use it directly connected to a pc vis usb?

    Thanks,
    Paolo
