Speeding up Electronic Repair Work

Speeding up Electronic Repair Work

The FLIR ETS320 non-contact thermal management system takes the guesswork out of thermal testing of your electronic products with fast discovery of hot spots and potential points of failure. "The FLIR ETS320 has helped us to clearly visualizes hot spots on our assembled printed circuit boards. At ISOMEDIA, we value our time, so if we have something like the ETS320, it speeds up the repair work tremendously. It's also easier to use for this type of work". Read the customer application story in full to find out how the FLIR ETS320 reduced test times and sped up repairs at ISOMEDIA.

FLIR Systems Introduce Hyperspectral Imaging

FLIR Systems Introduce Hyperspectral Imaging

FLIR Systems is now able to offer hyperspectral imaging solutions that allow you to collect any waveband of spectral and spatial information in one high-speed video frame. Hyperspectral imaging systems collect both spectral and spatial information in one instantaneous video frame. This enhances the data stream while eliminating motion artefacts and maximizing signal-to-noise response. Combined with FLIR’s advanced infrared camera technologies, the systems can be optimized for the visible, NIR, SWIR, MWIR, or LWIR wavebands. Additionally, these systems can be designed to interface...

Motion Controller from FAULHABER with STO shutdown

Motion Controller from FAULHABER with STO shutdown

FAULHABER has brought to market a new series of Motion Controllers with redundant safety shutdown according to the STO principle (Safe Torque Off). The power supply to the motor is thereby immediately interrupted, preventing it from producing torque. The devices of the MC 5004 P STO series are thereby certified for operation up to safety integrity level SIL3 (IEC 61800-5-2) and up to performance level PL e (EN ISO 13849-1). 

"The new Motion Controllers ensure safety in the collaboration between human and machine, even in an Industry 4.0 environment," emphasises product manager...
