The visible spectrum is that part of the electromagnetic spectrum which our eyes can see, It can see light of wavelengths 390 to 700nm.
The long infrared window (wavelength 9 - 14 um) lies outside the range of human vision, There are fascinating applications when one can can see the infrared. This kit allows you to do just that.
All objects emit infrared radiation according to the black body radiation law, using this thermal cameras can see without the need of visible illumination. The applications of thermal imaging span many areas from medical, night vision to checking home insulation and finding sources of heat leakage.
Below is the sample image created using the kit of a heated oven. One can clearly see the hottest part of the oven as well as see the heat escaping from the oven to the surroundings.
How the kit works:
The kit uses a very sensitive contactless temperature sensor which measures temperature without contact. Unlike most temperature sensors, this sensor measures infrared light bouncing off of remote objects so it can sense temperature without having to touch them physically. Simply point the sensor towards what you want to measure and it will detect the temperature by absorbing IR waves emitted.
This sensor can provide the temperature of one point, But to construct an thermal image we need many readings from different points. This is accomplished by having the sensor scan the area of interest and taking readings and using the data to construct the image.
The scanning is done using 2 axis gimbal which is rotated using X and Y axis servos, the scanner with the thermal camera is as shown below:

This application is responsible for collecting the data sent from the temperature sensor via the Arduino and creates a visual Thermal image.
Below is the image created by the InfraEye therma viewer when it scanned the heat dissipated by a LCD tv.
The kit set comes with all the bits you need to construct the InfraEye Thermal viewer and accompaniying Java application and Arduino source code.
This kit is a great learning experience and a source of endless fun.
