Shortwave Infrared Cameras For High-Temperature Manufacturing And R&D Processes

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.

Infrared Microscopy: How To Get Accurate Temperature Measurements And Find Hot Spots With Your Infrared Camera Lenses

Finding and fixing hot spots within ever-shrinking electronic systems has become more and more difficult. This webinar examines close-up and microscopic 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. 

Temperature Guns Versus Thermal Imaging Technology

Common tools for non-contact temperature measurements include thermal imaging cameras and spot pyrometers. Thermal cameras, however, have several advantages compared to spot pyrometers, including image generation, temperature readings of each pixel of the entire image, and temperature readings from a longer distance.

Infrared Camera Accuracy And Uncertainty In Plain Language

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. 

Ultra-High-Speed Thermography

Recent advances in IR camera technologies, such as fast camera detector readouts and high-performance electronics, allow high-speed imagery. This article is part five of a handbook that discusses the use of ultra-high-speed thermography with IR cameras.
