Temperature measurement with Fluke TiX520 infrared camera

These cameras are specially designed camera capture radiating energy when we capture images.The quantity of energy radiated is based on the actual surface temperature and surface emissivity of the object.When we captures images, the imager senses the infrared energy from the surface of the object and uses this data to calculate an estimated temperature value.The surfaces which have high emissivity like water, skin, painted metal etc are a good conductor of radiating energy and produces relatively accurate measurements.If the surface has low emissivity then we adjust it as per our need.Adjustment to the emissivity setting will usually allow the Imager to calculate a more accurate estimate of the actual temperature.
