There are two infrared detectors available on the market: cooled and uncooled. Cooled detector works at cryogenic temperature, while uncooled at ambient temperature.
When choosing an infrared thermal imaging camera, should I choose uncooled or cooled?
What parameters should I focus on about the infrared detectors?
Well, first we need to know the differences between them.
After knowing these differences, you will know how to choose an infrared detector for your products.
Uncooled detector is best choice for targets with short distance and not requiring very high quality thermal imaging. And also if your budgets are not enough, it is also best for you.
While cooled detector is used to detect targets that have tiniest temperature change, long range, high moving speed etc.
