iRay Thermals

How does iRay Thermal technology work?

iRay Thermal technology works by using the principle of thermal imaging. Thermal cameras, like those produced by iRay, capture and create images of objects by detecting infrared radiation emitted by them. This process is known as thermal imaging.

In more detail, a thermal imaging camera is a non-contact device that detects infrared energy (heat) and converts it into a visual image. This infrared radiation is invisible to the human eye, but it can be detected by thermal imaging cameras. These cameras work by measuring the infrared radiation (heat) emitted by objects and converting it into a visible image.

One of the applications of iRay's thermal imaging equipment is in the mining industry, where it can be mounted onto mining robots to reduce the failure rate of mine equipment. Another application is in the outdoor hunting field, where the integration of daytime optics and thermal imaging provides a superior experience.

iRay's product line includes devices like the BOLT TL35 Thermal Weapon Sight, which allows for easy transfer of captured videos and images to your smartphone via an app. Reviews indicate that iRay produces high-quality thermal imaging cores and cameras, such as the Infiray C210 Thermal Camera and the iRay Rico Micro Thermal Scope.

So, in essence, iRay Thermal technology works by capturing the heat signatures of objects and translating them into visible images, providing valuable data in various applications.

The science behind thermal imaging.

Thermal imaging is a technology that translates heat (infrared radiation) into visible images. The process allows us to see variations in temperature and heat emitted from objects, even in low-light or dark conditions.

The basic science of thermal imaging came into existence with the invention of the bolometer in 1860 by American astronomer Samuel Pierpont. The bolometer measures the power of incident electromagnetic radiation via the heating of a material with a temperature-dependent electrical resistance. It has been crucial in developing thermal imaging technology.

When a thermal camera is in operation, it detects the infrared energy (heat) emitted, transmitted, and reflected by objects. This energy is captured and focused onto an infrared detector array. The detectors create a detailed pattern or 'thermogram' based on the temperature variations. The thermogram is then converted into electric impulses and sent to a signal-processing unit, which translates this information into an image.

The intensity of infrared radiation emitted changes with temperature, which is why thermal images can illustrate a clear distribution of temperatures across an object or scene. This property makes thermal imaging a valuable tool in a variety of fields, including medical diagnosis, building inspection, firefighting, and wildlife observation.

It's important to note that thermal cameras do not see through objects - they detect heat radiating off surfaces. Therefore, they can't capture images beyond walls or other solid obstructions.

Benefits of using iRay Thermal products.

  1. Detection of Hidden Problems: Thermal imaging cameras can detect issues that may not be visible to the naked eye. This includes heat leaks in buildings, electrical faults, and other hidden anomalies.
  2. Safety and Security Applications: i- Ray Thermal products can play a critical role in safety and security. They can detect threats invisible to the naked eye, making them useful for surveillance and monitoring.
  3. Construction Safety: In the construction industry, thermal imaging can help ensure safety by identifying risks involved in building projects.
  4. Optical Magnification: Products like the iRay Rico thermal scope offer optical magnification up to 2x, providing clear and crisp images.
  5. Wildlife Observation and Hunting: A thermal monocular allows users to spot and approach game easily without scaring them away. The lightweight and portable design of iRay's thermal monoculars make them ideal for outdoor use.
  6. Value for Money: iRay's finished products are known for their excellent value for money, offering high-quality thermal imaging at competitive prices.
  7. Versatile Mounting Options: Whether you're seeking a handheld thermal monocular or a helmet-mounted device, iRay offers a range of options.
  8. Zero Calibration: Some iRay products feature Thermal+ technology, which has an advantage in zero calibration. Re-zeroing is no longer required to hit the target.
  9. Local Support: iRayUSA, based in Texas, provides local design, manufacturing, and distribution of premium thermal night vision devices.
