  1. Using Thermal Mapping At The Data Center

    Cooling the servers in data centers efficiently is critical to increasing IT reliability, maintaining high performance, and reducing electrical usage. This article discusses the reasoning behind using infrared thermography (IRT) to commission and monitor data centers’ cooling systems.

  2. Thermal Imaging Of Power MOSFETs Under Thermal Runaway Conditions

    Using a thermal camera and an oscilloscope to look at the voltage and current internal to the MOSFET, we can gain an understanding of how a hot spot develops on the surface of the MOSFET. By Jack Shue and Henning Leidecker

  3. Effects Of Heat On Firearm Barrels

    The purpose of this study is to examine the advantage of using a thermal imaging system to capture the effects of heat on gun barrels. The thermal imaging camera will provide such data as the temperatures reached and the distribution of heat along the barrel. By Matthew Iannone, FLIR Systems, Inc.

  4. NDT In Composite Materials With Flash, Transient, And Lockin Thermography

    Composites are now used in everything from aircraft to prosthetics. By Markus Tarin and Ralph Rotolante

  5. Infrared Thermography: Its Use And Application For Detecting Infectious Diseases In Wildlife And Domestic Animals
    Remarkable advances and recent research indicate that infrared thermography (IRT) can be used to remote detect infectious diseases in wildlife and domestic animals. By Shylo R. Johnson and Mike R. Dunbar, USDA/APHIS/WS/National Wildlife Research Center, Fort Collins, CO

  8. Catalog: FLIR Infrared Research Cameras

    The InSb Laboratory Camera is a high-performance mid-wave infrared (MWIR) camera system based on an Indigo ROIC based focal plane array (FPA). This is either a 320 x 256 or 640 x 512 format Indium Antimonide (InSb) snapshot mode FPA

  9. FLIR Automation Handbook

    Infrared (IR) radiation is not detectable by the human eye, but an IR camera can convert it into a visual image that depicts thermal variations across an object or scene.

  10. Application Note: Applications Of Thermography In Product Safety

    Hewlett-Packard uses IR cameras to evaluate printed circuit assembly components in the product safety lab. Hazard Based Safety Engineering provides a more efficient means of temperature testing and can help identify potential safety hazards. Before they are shipped, products are checked for overheating, fire ignition, potential fuel sources, shock hazards and compliance with EPA standards
