The Next Generation Precision Handheld Thermometers

Omega’s NEW Digital Thermocouple Thermometers

HH911T-HH912T Online  —  OMEGA announces the next generation of Precision Digital Thermometers, the HH911T/HH912T Series.

They are user configurable for Type K, J, T or E thermocouple probes to provide a wide range of temperature measurements from -250 to 1372 °C (-418 to 2502 °F).

The HH911T (single input) and the HH912T (dual channel inputs with T1-T2 readings) provide dependable and uninterrupted portable measurement capability without expensive batteries, AC adaptors, or chargers. Continue reading

Thermal VISION Sensors for Tomorrow’s Autonomous Vehicles


ADK™ with Boson™ for Automotive Thermal VisionONLINE — The FLIR ADK™ (Automotive Development Kit) is a cost-effective way to develop the next generation of automotive thermal vision and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

Thermal imaging is the best sensor technology for pedestrian detection, identifying people in cluttered environments and giving analytics the critical information needed for automated decisions.

Designed around the FLIR Boson thermal camera core, the FLIR ADK has a simple interface that ports data directly into analytics. Continue reading

The Thermal Conductivity of Unfilled Plastics


All values in the table are defined at room temperature.

Thermal conductivity of some plasticsOnline  —  As a rule-of-thumb, the thermal conductivity increases with a few percent in the range 0-100 °C.

Only below very low temperatures (typically 40 K), plastics show a clear decrease.

Fillers such as silver, copper, CNTs etc. typically cause a sharp increase in the thermal conductivity of a polymer composite. Continue reading
