1. Overview 

IR0005 is an infrared camera that integrates surface temperature measurement and real-time thermal image. With this product, potential problems can be identified on the color display screen which is helpful for users to locate the problem, take readings and solve the issue. 

The product has a visual camera integrated to increase the differentiation degree. The thermal images and full vision images can be stored in the device and can be obtained through USB or transferred to a computer to generate reports and printing.

The following are the major features of IR0005:

  • High accuracy: The adjustable radiation coefficient increases the measurement accuracy of reflective surfaces.
  • Time-saving : The traditional infrared thermometer needs to measure every component one by one, this is not necessary for IR0005.
  • Easy to use : Turn on the device and start measuring temperatures straight away.
  • User-friendly : The thermal point and cold point temperature automatically marks the area with highest or lowest temperature in real time.  
  • Adjustable: Five types of color palettes and emissivity values


The product can be utilized in many fields, for instance:

  1.  Detect spills and leaks of chemicals:which have different thermal signatures to the surroundings.
  1. Fire fighting: Vision can be obscured by smoke and debris in the event of a fire, thermal imaging can see through this and locate victims or fire spots.  
  2.  Locate the source of abnormal leaking of heatof a house or a machine, find out the problem area and fix it.
  1. Enable drug-enforcement: units to locate cannabis plants by detecting abnormal amount of heat spot in buildings.
  2. Moisture detection: Areas with lower temperatures to its uniform surroundings can be a source of moisture staining or damage.
  3. Measure body temperatures: Point the thermal imaging camera at a person to find their surface body temperature.
  1. Night vision: Measuring the electromagnetic energy given off when objects emit heat, the IR0005 translates those energy into visible light for users to see them in the dark.
  1. Building inspection: Check that heat is retained uniformly in a building.

 IR0005 is the ideal selection for electrician, maintenance personnel, technicians and even the emergency personnel.





2. Considerations and Safety Maintenance

Please read the instructions carefully so as to ensure accurate measurement results and safety:

  • Do not use the device in explosive, flammable or corrosive environments. 
  • Since the product is a precision electronic and sensitive optical device. Do not drop it or allow impacts to occur to prevent damage.
  • Do not dismantle the product, doing so can damage it and revoke the warranty.
  • When the product works, there is a tiny clicking sound every several seconds. This is a normal phenomenon as the lens captures images to produce electronic noises.
  • It is suggested to use the attached USB cable.
  • Please use a damp cloth or gentle soap to clean the enclosure of the device. Do not use abradant, isopropanol or solvent to clean. Special optical lens cleaner should be used to clean the screen.

4.3. Key description  







5. Initial Operation 

  1. Charging:When the battery power is empty or low, please charge it through the micro USB interface.
  1. Power on/off the instrument:hold down “/MENU” key for several seconds.
  2. Changeimaging mode: press “” and “" keys to switch between fusion modes which blend thermal images and visible light images together.

     ---> The degree of fusion is 0%, 25%, 50%, 75% and 100%.

  1. Image capture:press the image capture key, then the screen will display “store photo?”: 

     --->If “yes”, please press “  /MENU” key to save the image.

     --->If “no”, press “SELECT/ENTER” key to determine not to save the image.

  1. Show or hidethe bottom bar: press “” to hide the bottom bar of the screen which shows the maximum /minimum value and time of the field temperature. Press “” again to display the bottom bar.
  2. Image export: use the Micro USB cable to connect the IR0005 to a computer to transfer the files.






6. Image Registration

The location of the visible light camera is above the infrared imaging sensor which is at the centre of the camera. Together they produce an image overlay (in between visible light mode and infrared mode) which would show the visible light image over the infrared image just like the left image below.

The Image Registration feature helps to adjust the positions of the visible light image and infrared image to make sure they align


Image registration adjustment mode   Image registration after adjustment

To access this feature, press the menu button, then select Image Registration (see right image above). Use the arrow keys to adjust the position of the images until they align.





7. Color Palette 

The menu of color palette can change the false color on the display screen or capture infrared image. There are five types of color palettes provided: spectra, iron, cool, black and white.

Suitable selection of color palette displays the details of the target objective better:

  1.  Spectra, iron and coolcolor

   -Focus on display of color 

   -suitable for high heat contrast

   -improving the color contrast between high and low temperature

  1. White and Black

   -provide even linear color.

  1. Press “”/“”to adjust the value.
  1. Press “SELECT/ENTER” to confirm after editing.
  1. Press “/MENU” key to exit.




10. Emissivity  

The emissivity of the surface of a material is its effectiveness in emitting energy as thermal radiation. The emissivity of the product can be adjusted from 0.10 to 1.00 with the default value of 0.95. Many common objects and materials (such as timber, water, skin and textile fabric) can reflect the heat energy effectively, so it is easy to obtain high accuracy.

Choosing the correct setting of the emissivity value of different objects and materials is very important for achieving accurate temperature measurement. The surface emissivity will greatly affect the measured temperature and therefore adjusting the emissivity value to match it is essential.





11. The Table of Emissivity Value

The product is provided with four types of object measurement modes:

  1. Coarse object (easy to give out energy)(0.95);
  2. Semi-matte object (0.80);
  3. Semi-shiny object (0.60);
  4. Shiny object (0.30);
