Thermal Imaging Handbook for R&D Professionals

Thermal Imaging Handbook for R&D Professionals

FLIR Systems ‘Ultimate Infrared Handbook for R&D Professionals’ was developed to enable users of thermal imaging cameras to develop a comprehensive understanding of infrared (IR) technology and use this resource as a guidebook for gaining optimal benefit from their camera. FLIR experts have contributed on major topics including - how IR works, IR detectors for thermographic imaging, getting the most from your IR camera, how filters extend IR camera usefulness and ultra high-speed thermography.

High Temperature Endoscope

High Temperature Endoscope

Resolve Optics has supplied several high temperature Short Wavelength Infrared (SWIR) endoscopic viewing systems to enable inspection of the blades in a gas turbine while in operation. To enable inspection during gas turbine operation required that the SWIR endoscope had to operate up to 950° C at the tip with 150PSI pressure and be able to withstand severe vibration. To overcome the negative effects of high temperature and pressure – Resolve Optics created a novel design which allowed introduction of cool air at high pressure at the mid-section of the endoscope....

RTS - Reflowable Thermal Switch

RTS - Reflowable Thermal Switch

SCHURTER introduces its new RTS, a particularly compact overtemperature protection device using advanced SMD technology. It is suited for the highest demands of protection in power semiconductors.

RTS stands for "Reflowable Thermal Switch". It was developed to protect highly integrated power semiconductors like MOSFETs, ICs, IGBTs, Triacs, SCRs, etc. from overheating. Before mechanical activation, the RTS can be mounted using conventional reflow soldering techniques with temperature profiles up to 260 °C.
