The FLIR ETS320 benchtop thermal imager is designed for testing and evaluating laboratory electronics. The ETS320 immediately identifies the presence of heat, either as a hot spot or thermal gradient, which can indicate potential points of failure within a system. This information can be used to determine where and when to add fans and heat syncs to ensure that instruments and circuit boards are operating within range for a maximum lifetime.
The high accuracy of this camera is ideal for quality assurance, factory acceptance testing, and failure analysis. It features a true 45° field of view for broad initial scans to reveal the potential problem. It can detect minute temperature shifts smaller than 0.06°C, and measure small components down to 170µm per pixel spot size.
The ETS320 is ergonomically designed for benchtop use. The microscope-style stand can adjust to different heights in order to magnify smaller components or zoom out to read a larger area. It can plug directly into your PC or laptop to view a live image on a larger screen for advanced analysis.
The Background: A circuit board manufacturer makes displays for subways and needs to troubleshoot boards that are not functioning properly.
The Problem: These circuit boards have many surface mounted components, some of which overheat. Due to the size and quantity of them, it is difficult to quickly get detailed time vs temperature data.
The Solution: The Flir ETS320 can be positioned above the board and either operate as a stand alone thermal image device or can be connected to a computer for video analysis using the include Flir Tools + Software) upon board power up. This can provide multiple measurements simultaneously, saving time.
