Shown in simplified form, a lens in an infrared thermometer focuses the thermal energy of an object, e.g., a building, a person or an animal, onto a detector. The associated thermal radiation is converted into electrical signals and ultimately into an image or a numerical value. Thus the operator of the device can quickly identify the temperature in a room, or in the case of COVID-19, the detector can indicate an elevated temperature or fever of an infected individual. This technology is therefore used worldwide at control points, such as border crossings. Compared to other measurement methods, infrared thermometers have an advantage that they can be used to detect and measure temperature without requiring direct contact, and results are recorded with portable instruments. FAULHABER stepper motors have a compact design, are powerful, low-vibration, quiet and energy efficient. These drives are predestined to provide support in infrared cameras during swivel and tilt adjustment, zoom, focus or shutter control for calibration.
- Cost effective positioning drive without encoder
- Extremely fast change of direction possible for fast focusing
