Thermal 101

Thermal 101 Thermal sensors and cameras create video images from infrared (heat) waves. Infrared is a part of the electromagnetic spectrum with wavelengths that are longer than visible light. Infrared is typically divided into near, mid, long and extreme and is measured in units known as microns or nanometers.
