A thermal imaging camera is designed to detect radiation intensity and render different temperatures using artificial colours so that human operators can ‘see’ temperature differences and temperature values.
Thermal imaging using drones
When it comes to utility or building inspections, a REAMS drone equipped with a thermal camera is a game-changer. Thermal cameras enable you to see missing or damaged installation, water under roof membranes, external electrical issues, failed windows, and a host of other problems.
Thermal drones also allow operators to quickly, easily and safely reach tough-to-access spots.
Thermal drones are a fantastic tool for roof inspections. The drone can see the full picture and pinpoint specific areas of interest to investigate further. By quickly pinpointing problem areas, you save time and money on inspection and keep your facilities running efficiently.
Thermal imaging technology gives our clients more thorough, frequent, safer, and efficient inspections. Drones equipped with infrared cameras can be used to detect irregularities in insulation, pooling water, and water Ingress.
Combining this with a high-resolution zoom camera, our qualified thermographers inspectors can visually identify problems via our ELIAS UAV platform without having to be physically present. This means greater efficiency for the pilot while providing better data to the client.
Drones with thermal cameras are a vital tool for solar-panel inspections. They can be used to identify manufacturing defects, cracks, faulty interconnectors, and temporary shadowing. And the bonus; they can collect this data much quicker than traditional hand-held methods. One study has shown that drones collect data more than 50x faster than manual methods. This increased efficiency helps to boost profitability.
