Temperature Sensitivity | Glossary

A thermal imaging device enables measuring the temperature of the target without physical contact. Thermal imaging devices can detect the smallest temperature difference of lower than 50 mK (miliKelvin) or 0.05 °C. This is called temperature sensitivity. An easier explanation would be if there are two objects with slightly different temperature (the first object has aContinue reading
