FLIR Systems has published a customer testimonial video* from Highland Technology Inc. (San Francisco, CA) in which staff describe their experience of using a FLIR ETS320 benchtop thermal imaging system which has made electronics design testing easier and more efficient.

Highland Technology designs and manufactures standard and custom electronics for high-precision analog measurement and signal generation, data acquisition and control instrumentation, pulse and picosecond timing delay generation, fiberoptic/photonics, and mixed technology products for demanding aerospace and defense, scientific, and industrial applications.

The FLIR ETS320 thermal imaging solution is a camera purpose designed for quick temperature checks on PCB boards and electronic devices in the lab. Using the FLIR ETS320 enables engineers and technicians to save time and eliminate guesswork by measuring temperatures across more than 76,000 points at once with its sensitive, accurate 320 x 240 detector.

Engineered specifically for lab electronics testing, the FLIR ETS 320 is battery powered and offers the convenience of hands-free operation. Information collected by the FLIR ETS320 is streamed via a USB port to your PC for immediate analysis and sharing of thermal data.

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.
