Going green with thermal imaging technology

Global infrared camera designer and manufacturer FLIR Systems Australia has released the B400 infrared camera to the Australian market, saying it can help the building and construction sector increase energy efficiency and reduce costs. The company says the camera scans structures and equipment producing thermal images for temperature monitoring and analysis. Through thermal imaging analysis, anomalies can be detected, enabling corrective action to be taken, which improves operational safety and energy efficiency within the building, according to FLIR. The B400 can audit a building for: Building-envelope thermography; Air tightness; Door-seal heat loss; Wall-seal heat loss; Leaks, humidity; Floor-heating thermography; Heating thermography; Moisture thermography; Roof-moisture thermography; Dew-point thermography; Ceiling and wall insulation failure; Any unnecessary energy loss. People who are inexperienced with infrared cameras can still take sharp thermal images with the device, which includes automatic and manual focus settings. According to FLIR, the B400 comprises a high resolution 320-by-240 infrared detector (76,800 pixels), and advanced signal processing, which decreases “noise” within the image. The B400 also has an 8x continuous digital zoom and a built-in 25-degree lens, with the ability to add 45-degree wide angle or 15-degree telephoto lens.
