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

    Electronic products used in aerospace applications and for scientific research have two key requirements: they must have both the 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. But that means the parts get hot. If they get too hot, they can’t be counted on to work reliably. Sometimes, they even break.

  2. Hot Topic: The Promise, Advantages, And Challenges of High-Speed Infrared Cameras
    6/7/2017

    While IR cameras are nothing new, the latest high-speed variants bring with them new functionality, benefits, and a few limitations. This Q&A seeks to shed light on some of those functions, benefits, and limitations and address some of the key questions often asked about the technology.

  3. Thermal Imaging Measuring System For Electronics Testing: FLIR ETS320 Datasheet
    6/1/2017

    The ETS320 is an affordable, non-contact thermal measurement system designed to collect accurate, reliable data in seconds and analyze it quickly for electronics testing and scientific research. The system features high sensitivity to detect temperature shifts smaller than 0.06°C, a 320 x 240 IR sensor offering 76,800 points of non-contact temperature measurements, a 3” LCD display, FLIR Tools+ software for instant analysis, and a pole mount for fast and easy setup.

  4. Forensic Investigations Using Thermography And Steam

    Investigators are continuously searching for an optimal solution for finding concrete blood evidence in less-than-ideal circumstances. This is especially important when working with fabrics carrying diluted blood stains, which could easily be affected by the common practice of adding liquid luminol.

  5. Catnip Cultivation May Offer Natural Mosquito Repellent Alternative
    5/2/2017

    Mosquitos cause constant concern in tropical regions since they can carry deadly diseases such as Malaria, Dengue Fever, and the Zika virus. Amid the global efforts to control outbreaks of Zika and other mosquito-borne diseases, new efforts are being made to develop natural mosquito repellents that can grow easily in affected regions. Some plant-based repellents can be initially as effective as DEET, but most evaporate too quickly and leave the user unprotected. One plant that shows promise is catnip. Researchers have developed a “super-catnip” with enhanced bioactive compounds while making it easier to grow commercially.

  6. Hot Biology: Investigating The Thermal Physiology Of Birds And Mammals
    4/13/2017

    Many details of the thermal biology of animals are unknown. To fill the gaps in this knowledge, researchers at the Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health and Comparative Medicine at the University of Glasgow, Scotland are using thermal imaging to learn as much as possible in order to help animals in the long run.

  7. FLIR Thermal Science Cameras Support Medical Research
    4/13/2017

    Tissue auto-fluorescence spectroscopy is used to differentiate between normal and diseased tissue. This technique measures the intrinsic light emissions from biological agents upon excitation by a light source, but the relationship between auto-fluorescence and temperature has not been well defined.

  8. Thermal Imaging Cameras Monitor The Quality Of Vessel Constructions
    4/13/2017

    Shipbuilding requires advanced, non-destructive testing methods to ensure the quality of the ship's construction, and therefore the quality of the fleet. This article describes how thermal imaging is used for things like vessel construction, surface inspection, detection of undercoat corrosion, quality control, and more.

  9. Assessing Infrared Spectrum Hyperpixel Array Imagers For Measuring Temperature In Additive And Subtractive Manufacturing
    4/13/2017

    This white paper discusses the use of infrared spectrum hyperpixel array imagers in additive and subtractive manufacturing temperature measurement, the issues that are involved, and the results of multiple analyses on the method.

  10. Nordic District Heating Networks Monitored From The Sky With Thermal Imaging
    4/13/2017

    According to some researchers, district heating is the cheapest method for a city to make cuts on carbon emissions. District heating is a system that distributes hot water or steam to a centralized residential or commercial location through an underground network of pipes. Maintaining a large district heating network can be a difficult task, so to help large Scandinavian cities to effectively monitor and maintain their district heating networks, the company Termisk Systemteknik has developed a district heating scanning system from the sky, based on thermal imaging cameras from FLIR Systems.
