Why infrared thermal imaging devices make sense for electricians

Why infrared thermal imaging devices make sense for electricians
Heat is a byproduct of operating any sized electrical circuit. Most problems in electrical systems display themselves in terms of heat. Electricians must be able to classify a circuit as normal when the load is on or identify when it is abnormal and identify the issues that presents – finding hot spots that need attention.  By John H. Waggoner, Senior Instructor, FLIR Infrared Training Center

Pipeline inspection using optical gas imaging

Pipeline inspection using optical gas imaging
FLIR Systems has published a new application spotlight that highlights the role its Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) cameras are playing in detecting gas leaks from oil and gas pipelines. Oil and gas pipelines often stretch long distances, carrying a variety of materials. Sometimes the pipes fail, resulting in liquid leaks or fugitive emissions of gas releasing into the environment.

Increased efficiency with infrared thermography

Increased efficiency with infrared thermography
Since the arrival of the personal computer, the electronics market has been subject to a constant, overarching pressure from end-users to miniaturise components while maximising performance. However, meeting these twin demands presents a challenge: how does one accurately test tiny components for both product faults and overall quality control when most of these electronics are too small for conventional diagnostic tools?
