FLIR’s New ETS320 Thermal Infrared Imager
Meer. Belgium. — FLIR Systems has published an application note that describes how their ETS320 thermal infrared imaging camera is being used by ISOMEDIA GmbH (Stuttgart, Germany) to investigate and speed-up the repair of assembled printed circuit boards (PBA).
Earlier this year the company invested in a FLIR ETS320 non-contact thermal measurement system.
The new portable system, which pairs a high sensitivity infrared camera with an integrated stand, has enabled ISOMEDIA to undertake hands-free thermal analysis of printed circuit boards and other small electronics. Continue reading
Everything you wanted to know about our changing climate but were too afraid to ask
March 11, 2016 Amanda MacMillan
It starts simply like this:
Q: What is global warming?
A: Here’s a simple definition of global warming. (And yes, it’s really happening.) Over the past 50 years, the average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate in recorded history.
And experts see the trend is accelerating: All but one of the 16 hottest years in NASA’s 134-year record have occurred since 2000.
Vendors Presentations and Reception XIV @ SPIE DCS via ThermoSense XL
Online. — This session is now in its 14th year and has become very popular with attendees at SPIE’s Defense + Commercial Sensing (DCS) 2018 Symposium & Expo because it is held the day before the Expo starts, while the attendees are getting organized and many Symposia attendees are already present.
This venue provides also an early opportunity for exhibitors to highlight their latest technology and products to the Thermosense and IR community, prior to the opening of the SPIE’s Defense + Commercial Sensing (DCS) 2018 Expo. Continue reading
New study by MIT climate scientists experts
Online — Study finds that certain hot spots in the country will experience severe reductions in crop yields by 2050, due to climate change’s impact on irrigation.
The most adversely affected region, according to the researchers, will be the Southwest. Already a water-stressed part of the country, this region is projected to experience reduced precipitation by mid-century.
Less rainfall to the area will mean reduced runoff into water basins that feed irrigated fields. Continue reading
