FLIR ITC International User Conference Programme Flyer - .PDF file.

The programme has just been confirmed for this year’s FLIR Systems’ ITC International User Conference and it promises something for everyone involved in the application of infrared.  The event spans two days – 2728 September 2017 – and this year’s venue is the Windmill Village Hotel in Coventry, UK.

Neither day is designated for specific application sectors and is an eclectic mix of scientific and industrial subject matter. Each session occupies no more than 45 minutes and is followed, mid-afternoon, by a selection of workshops.  A poster session has been arranged for the pre-dinner slot on 27 September with contributors drawn from all over the world.

On Thursday 28 there is greater focus on building, condition monitoring and electrical inspection. Again, the presentations are short and given by thermal imaging experts from North and South America and across Europe. Another fulsome workshop session follows lunch with the conference closing at 16:45 hours.

The ITC International User Conference is a golden opportunity for technicians, engineers, scientists and those interested in thermal imaging to share their experiences, learn new techniques and discuss up and coming applications. It is always a lively and thought-provoking event. The FLIR service team will also be on hand to give delegates’ cameras a free health check.

The fee is £359 ex. VAT (€419 ex. VAT); with a reduction to £339 ex. VAT (€399 ex. VAT) for thermography association members and students. This covers conference participation and proceedings’ materials, lunch and refreshments on Wednesday/Thursday and dinner on Wednesday evening. To register click here.

FLIR Systems specialises in technologies that enhance perception and awareness.  The company brings innovative sensing solutions into daily life through its thermal imaging and visible light imaging technology and systems for measurement, diagnosis, location and advanced threat detection.  Its products improve the way people interact with the world around them, enhance productivity, increase energy efficiency and make the workplace safer.

FLIR Systems has six operating segments – surveillance, instruments, OEM and emerging markets, maritime, security and finally, detection. Of these six, ‘instruments’ is of greatest interest to trade and industry and the second largest segment in the company’s portfolio. This division provides devices that image, measure and assess thermal energy, gases and other environmental elements for industrial, commercial and scientific applications.

These products are manufactured across five production sites, three in the USA and two in Europe; Sweden and Estonia.

A model to suit every application and budget
The options that FLIR Systems provides for measuring temperature and studying thermal performance have never been greater.  Not only does the company offer a huge range of models to suit all thermal application needs but the technology is also affordable and very easy to use.  Thermal cameras now come in various shapes, sizes and degrees of sophistication and FLIR continues to invest heavily in the development of new and complementary technologies to differentiate itself from competitors.

An important milestone in the development of thermal imaging has been the introduction of the FLIR Lepton® core, a micro longwave detector, the size of a mobile SIM.  This has allowed thermal imaging to be repackaged to meet the needs of an even wider audience and, in combination with another new technology called Infrared Guided Measurement – IGM™ – has led to the development of a range of test and measurement meters with imaging capability.

Another important growth area for FLIR thermal imaging is in continuous monitoring to assure quality and safety.  Through its introduction of discrete fixed mounted thermal cameras which are fully compliant industry standard plug-and-play protocols, FLIR Systems has provided industry with infrared machine vision which is instantly ready for quick and easy network installation.

Protecting assets and people from fire is an area for which thermal imaging is least known but, thanks to FLIR Systems’ development, it is now one of the most cost-effective methods available.  Its application flexibility and rapid return on investment present an attractive proposition for any site or safety manager.
