  1. Temperature Guns Versus Thermal Imaging Technology
    8/23/2018

    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.

  2. Infrared Camera Accuracy And Uncertainty In Plain Language
    8/23/2018

    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. 

  3. Electronic Component Testing: A Non-Contact Sport
    8/23/2018

    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.

  4. Finding Resolution In A Distant Image
