  1. Shortwave Infrared Cameras For High-Temperature Manufacturing And R&D Processes
    7/25/2019

    Shortwave infrared (SWIR) cameras are sensitive to shorter IR wavelengths between visible light and 3 µm. With the addition of temperature measurement capabilities, SWIR cameras offer a win-win for anyone concerned with thermal analysis of high temperature materials or processes.

  2. Infrared Microscopy – How To Get Accurate Temperature Measurements And Find Hot Spots With Your Infrared Camera Lenses
    6/28/2019

    Finding and fixing hot spots within ever-shrinking electronic systems has become more and more difficult. This webinar examines close-up and microscope lenses and how they allow infrared cameras to make accurate temperature measurements on components less than 25 µm in size and image targets as small as 3.5 µm. Side-by-side comparisons of real-world images are presented along with data from a variety of different camera and lens combinations.

  3. See The Heat: Troubleshooting PCB And Electronic Product Design With Thermal Imaging
    6/28/2019

    In this webinar, FLIR's Jerry Beeney compares infrared imaging with the more traditional temperature measurement devices, utilizing real-world IR images and examples to demonstrate how infrared thermography can more easily identify hot spots and improve thermal management.

  4. Speed Up Testing And Improve Quality Of Electronics PCBA And Integrated Circuit Design And Testing With The Use Of Infrared Technology
    6/17/2019

    As electronic circuit boards and components get smaller and more powerful, inherent heating becomes a concern. Infrared camera technology is helping save electronic design companies money through improved test times and better product design.

  5. Improving Additive Manufacturing With The Help Of Infrared
    5/9/2019

    Additive manufacturing technologies create components directly from a computer model, adding material only where needed. This app note discusses how infrared cameras can help manufacturers find systematic problems and determine the changes needed to maintain product quality.

  6. Overcoming The Challenges Of Measuring Temperature At High Speeds With FLIR X-Series Cameras
    10/18/2018

    Measuring the temperature of fast moving objects can be very challenging since traditional temperature measurement devices are often too slow or simply impractical.  In this brief 20-30 minute webinar, FLIR’s Scientific Segment Engineer, Taimen Taylor, will discuss how recent developments in high speed thermal camera technology allow engineers and researchers the ability to easily visualize and accurately measure temperatures on extremely fast moving targets.  Taimen will use real-world images from a variety of high speed thermal applications to showcase how new camera features allow users to record, access and analyze data quickly and easily.

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

    Common tools for non-contact temperature measurements include thermal imaging cameras and spot pyrometers. Thermal cameras' advantages over spot pyrometers include image generation, temperature readings of each pixel of the entire image, and temperature readings from a longer distance.

  8. 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. 

  9. 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.

  10. Finding Resolution In A Distant Image
    7/20/2018

    IR cameras on the military test range often need to focus on far-away objects. Despite common misperceptions, zoom lenses work in IR cameras, but understanding spatial resolution is key.
