 Setting up the Imager to Capture an Image

Focus

setupWhen setting up the imager, remember that the IR image must be focused for accurate temperature measurements.  Incorrect focus cannot be fixed after the saved image is downloaded to the computer. 

  • Rotate the focus ring to bring your desired target into the best focus.
  • Remember that the CCD Visible Light Camera does not require focusing.
