The market price of infrared thermal imager is still relatively expensive nowadays, and its main application is still in the field of industrial infrared detection and security. There are not many ways to be used for civilian use. At present, smart phones play an indispensable role in people's daily life. The way of observing the outside world is mainly to form visible images by collecting visible light signals. The thermal imager can capture infrared light signals by using the photosensitive element of the infrared detector to obtain infrared images.
The handheld thermal imager camera generally has many buttons to operate the thermal imager. Nowadays, many smart phones have been replaced by virtual buttons. The infrared thermal imager that can be embedded in smart phones can replace handhold thermal imaging with virtual buttons on the phone. The buttons of the instrument can also be quickly implemented on the infrared thermal imager by using the smart features of the mobile phone, such as QR code label recognition, GPS location positioning, and the use of mobile Internet to transmit infrared image data.
The infrared thermal imager that can be embedded in smart phones include infrared thermal imager with U-shaped grooves for mobile phones. The infrared thermal imager with U-shaped grooves for mobile phones are equipped with a focal length adjustment device. The position of the infrared camera is set so that the smart phone is mounted on the infrared thermal imager through the U-shaped groove, ensuring that the optical axis of the visible light camera of the smart phone is on the same plane as the optical axis of the infrared camera. The smart phone and the thermal imager are connected through the USB interface at the bottom of the U-shaped groove. The display function of the infrared thermal image and visible light images depends on the software installed on the smart phone. The infrared thermal imager has a detachable handle, which is convenient for users. The infrared thermal imager that can be embedded in smart phones is suitable for applications where engineers perform infrared detection, and are also suitable for home or personal infrared applications.
