Thermal Camera Calibration

To ensure that the measurements being made by the camera are accurate, they need to be compared against a reference that is known to be accurate. This is exactly what the process of thermal camera calibration achieves – a comparison between the measurement of a known source and an unknown source for accuracy or precision.

When calibration of the camera is being done, the unit with the unknown performance is called the unit under test, and the other is called the thermal camera calibration standard, or black body.

Black body calibrators use a target plate, which has a high emissivity that minimises emissivity errors.

The thermal energy radiated by an object is expressed in relation to the energy radiated at the same temperature by a perfect radiator, traditionally called a black body. A black body absorbs all the radiation it receives and radiates more thermal radiation for all wavelength intervals than any other mass of the same area and temperature.

Why is Calibration Important?

Thermal cameras calibration is used to define the quality of the measurement parameter for accuracy, range and precision.

Over time, the quality of measurements of just about every tool will deteriorate to some extent.

Equipment that operates on certain technologies, or measures shifting parameters like humidity, temperature and pressure, is more likely to be affected by a ‘drift’ in accuracy.

In order to ensure that you can enjoy complete confidence in the measurements and the output of any piece of equipment, calibration of the equipment needs to be performed on a periodic basis.

Once you’ve understood the benefits of performing thermal camera calibration and how critical it can be for maintaining quality, it’s quite apparent that it should be dealt with carefully.

How Frequently Should An Instrument Be Calibrated?

There’s rarely a set ‘perfect’ calibration frequency for any piece of equipment, since there are a number of factors that need to be taken into account.

Consider the effect the equipment in question has on the overall quality and safety of your site.

The manufacturer’s recommendations and the instrument’s tendency to ‘drift’ out of calibration (approx every 12 months).

Re-calibration may be warranted after any events that could throw the precision or accuracy. Such as an electrical fault a fall or other impacts.

Servicing & Calibration

Keeping your thermal cameras and system running in tip top condition helps to protect your investment for the future.

Regular servicing and preventative maintenance is probably the single most important thing you can do to keep everything running well.
