  1. Infrared Camera Accuracy And Uncertainty In Plain Language
    5/15/2018

    Trusting measurements from instruments can be difficult without a clear understanding of how the sensitivity and accuracy is derived. Many times, infrared camera measurement accuracy is confusing and can involve complex terms and jargon that may be misleading. 

  2. Electronic Component Testing: A Non-Contact Sport
    5/15/2018

    The smaller and more powerful an electronic device becomes, the more damage can be caused from its inherent heat. Designers are continuously looking for ways to keep components cool while maintaining the quality and integrity of performance. 

  3. Temperature Guns Versus Thermal Imaging Technology
    5/15/2018

    Common tools for non-contact temperature measurements include both thermal imaging cameras and spot pyrometers. Each works by detecting infrared radiation and translating it into temperature readings. Thermal cameras however, have several advantages compared to spot pyrometers, including image generation, temperature readings of each pixel of the entire image, and temperature readings from a longer distance.

  4. FLIR Cameras Help Study Behavior Of Bats In World’s Largest Underground River Cave System
    4/23/2018

    A team of researchers are using FLIR thermal imaging cameras to study the behavior of bats residing in the Puerto Pricesa Underground River cave system in the Philippines. The hope is that the technology will provide insight into the size and identity of the bat colony, and knowledge on how to better preserve the species for years to come.

  5. FLIR ETS320 Speeds Up Repair Work At ISOMEDIA
    4/23/2018

    The ISOMEDIA company offers after-market services for mobile devices in southern Germany. The business was launched as a PC and mobile phone repair center in Stuttgart. This case study explains how ISOMEDIA uses thermal imaging, with the FLIR ETS320 in particular, to speed up their repair work.

  6. Thermal Imaging Helps To Study Non-Contact Electromagnetic Induction Heating For Eradicating Bacteria And Yeasts From Metal Implants
    4/23/2018

    Infections in joint replacement surgery are a major factor in the failure of the used metal implants, especially when more strains of bacteria become resistant to antibiotics. Heating up the joints would eliminate bacteria and yeast, but the concern is whether or not this can be done in a non-invasive fashion.

  7. LIST Researchers Use FLIR Cameras To Study The Electrocaloric Effect
    4/23/2018

    Refrigerant devices typically use fluid coolants turned into gases to cool things down. These gases, however, may become harmful to the environment, so research is being done on the use of solid materials as a substitute to cool down food, beverages, medicine, and even electronic devices. Researchers at the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) are making use of FLIR’s thermal imaging cameras to study the subject.

  8. Development Of A 3D Thermal Image Camera System To Perform Analyses From The Air
    4/23/2018

    In response to the need for recording 3D thermal images, a team at a university in Germany developed a thermal imaging/RGB system capable of delivering 3D imagery by overlapping pictures from four digital and four FLIR A65sc cameras with 25° fields of view.

  9. Use Low-Cost Materials To Increase Target Emissivity
    4/20/2018

    Clean, unoxidized, bare metal surfaces have such low emissivity that they are difficult to measure with a thermal imaging camera. In order to get good measurements, the emissivity of these surfaces needs to be increased. This application note describes how to use a variety of low-cost materials to increase target emissivity in many industrial R&D and electrical applications.

  10. Benchtop Thermal Imaging: A Simple-To-Use, Cost-Effective Solution For Troubleshooting Complex Printed Circuit Boards
    11/2/2017

    Electronic products used in aerospace and other research applications have two key requirements: high performance and the reliability to withstand intense environments. To attain that performance, electronics designers often use small parts and routinely push them to their limits.
