Developers and makers that are interested in making their very own open source Thermographic camera might be interested in a site called Thermocam that provides all the knowledge, instructions and components you need to do just that.
The site also seems everything you need to make the camera from the Thermal sensor and board to the mini tripod that can be used to position the camera when finished.
A fully working Thermographic Camera can be used for a variety of applications including finding heat leaks in the insulation of buildings, analysis of electrical or mechanical components and more. The project is Arduino compatible and the firmware is adaptable to your needs.
The DIY-Thermocam is an open-source, do-it-yourself thermographic camera based on the popular, high-resolution FLIR Lepton thermal array sensor. The aim of this project is to give private persons, educational institutes and small companies access to a portable and affordable thermal imaging plattform.
You can make your own DIY-Thermocam at home in about 2-3 hours. You only need a simple soldering iron, some solder tin, a nippers and a screwdriver, everything else is included in the kit! The soldering procedure is easy: No SMD components, only big through-hole parts and modules. The enclosure can be simply assembled with just bolts & nutts, no glue required. A nice, step-by-step illustrated assembly guide will lead you through the whole assembly process.
