Camera Calibration

What is 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 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 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?

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 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.

Thermal Surveys

Specialist thermal imaging surveys are available at competitive prices from Focus 2000 Infrared.

Rather than incurring the expense of purchasing your own equipment, many people use specialist thermal surveys and Focus offer an unmatched service combining expertise in the thermal imaging sector with high-quality equipment and analytical skills.

Thermal surveys can provide a vital insight into many applications, from fast problem solving to improving processes. Popular thermal surveys include looking at a buildings’ thermal efficiency; predictive maintenance to show hot-running components; through to highlighting an underfloor leak. Many industries use thermal surveys to save time and costs, plus increasing safety in some applications, these include; building/civil engineering, electrical, predictive maintenance, mechanical, process and storage/distribution. We can also provide bespoke surveys for any one-off requirements.

  • Surveys are conducted at a time to suit you and your business
  • Data is analysed (in confidence) and we provide you with a printed & PDF report
  • Competitive prices
  • Only qualified operators are used to ensure accurate, reliable information
  • Discounts on subsequent camera purchase for any thermal survey customers
  • For more information or to book a survey, please call our office on 01458 241723
