  1. IR Detectors For Thermographic Imaging
    5/30/2018

    Thermographic imaging is accomplished with a camera that converts infrared radiation (IR) into a visual image that depicts temperature variations across an object or scene. This article is part 2 of a handbook by FLIR that discusses the use of IR detectors in thermographic imaging.

  2. IR Thermography – How It Works
    5/30/2018

    Although infrared radiation (IR) is not detectable by the human eye, an IR camera can convert it to a visual image that depicts thermal variations across an object or scene. Thermography is a type of imaging that is accomplished with an IR camera calibrated to display temperature values across an object or scene, and allows for non-contact measurements of an object’s temperature. This article is part 1 of a handbook by FLIR that discusses how thermography works.

  3. 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. 

  4. 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. 

  5. 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.

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

    A team of researchers is using FLIR thermal imaging cameras to study bats in the Puerto Pricesa Underground River cave system, in the Philippines, hoping to gain insight into the size and identity of the bat colony, as well as how to better preserve the species.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
