FLIR Thermal Imaging for Science and R&D

FLIR Thermal Imaging for Science and R&D

Meer, Belgium — FLIR Systems have published a new handbook, available as an interactive pdf or iBook for iPad, that allows you to discover thermal imaging applications advances that researchers are making around the world.

Researchers and engineers are using FLIR research grade thermal imaging cameras every day to solve challenges that are difficult by other means, or to improve on, or replace time consuming techniques like IR thermocouples.

Thermal imaging cameras provide non-contact temperature measurement, image through some materials or make the invisible visible using spectral filtering, capture high speed thermal events, synchronize cameras to other instruments and perform thermal microscopy measurements.

The Temperature-Controlled Gas Displacement Pycnometer

The AccuPyc II 1340 TEC

 AcIntergrated Thermo-Electric Temperature Control Solution

AccuPyc II TEC
Intergrated Thermo-Electric Temperature Control Solution

Norcross GA, USA  —  The AccuPyc II Series are fast, fully automatic gas displacement pycnometers that provide high-speed, high-precision volume measurements and true density calculations on a wide variety of powers, solids, and slurries.

Micromeritics has added a versatile temperature-control solution to this series with the introduction of the AccuPyc II TEC.

Gas pycnometry is recognized as one of the most reliable techniques for obtaining true, absolute, skeletal, and apparent volume and density.

However, materials subjected to changing temperature may have a direct effect on their volume, thereby affecting accurate density determination. Continue reading

SWap-C LEO new generation VGA format IR detector

Sofradir has cut the size & weight of SWap-C LEO

SWap-C-LEO-MW

Palaiseau, France & Fairfield NJ, USA — Sofradir has demonstrated SWap-C LEO at AeroIndia. SWaP-C LEO is a new generation VGA (640×480) detector optimized for size, weight, performance and cost (SWaP).

It meets the challenges of 21st century military platforms that demand the integration of smaller, lighter low power consumption devices offering better value for money.

Measuring 100x70x50 mm and weighing 300 g, it is 15% smaller and 20% lighter than earlier models in the mid-wave IR category.

SWap-C LEO is entering commercial production. Orders are in the pipeline with planned delivery in Q2 2015.
