The infrared control and scanning play more and more important role in the maintenance of power and industrial equipment. The images, obtained in the thermal spectrum invisible for a human eye, allows without any contact with the object to receive complete information, concerning the temperature distribution on the object surface. It allows finding out the temperature anomalies that often precede to the failures of technical equipment and devices, which could result as well in the emergencies and catastrophes with the heavy environmental consequences.
