Thermographic Camera On The Cheap [Project]
posted June 6 2014 10:58.42 by spic0m

Max Ritter made this thermographic image scanner:

"The Cheap-Thermocam is a low-cost thermographic image scanner. With it you can analyse your house, electrical devices, etc. and identify for example thermal lacks.

Current FLIR cameras on the market cost a few thousand dollars.

My idea was to reduce costs by using one single non-contact temperature sensor to create a thermographic image.

This is done by moving the infrared sensor over the target area with two servo motors, just like a scanner. Inside the Thermocam, there is a modern ARM Cortex M3 processor. It takes about 2 minutes per image to take the temperatures of 3072 points. The Thermocam can measure heat signatures from -70° to 380° celcius with an accuracy of 0.5°. It creates BMP images with a resolution of 640x480 pixel on the SD card, and you can also modify the images on any computer with a special software."

Max sells the V3 Pre-Assembled & tested or as a Self-assemble Kit but gives for free Version 1 files, so that everyone can make it on their own.
