Infrared Camera Warm Up & Image Stability

Often people are unaware that it takes time for your camera to warm up and stabilise. For low temperature applications that involve subtle Delta T’s I would recommend at least 5 to 10 mins warm up in the environment you will be imaging in. You will notice much greater stability (less drift) in the image and the camera will NUC less frequently providing less interruption to the scene.

If you are going to use a narrow fixed level and span (temperature scale) this is particularly important as thermal drift will see your image go out of range.
